Wow, #Mate really looks like Gnome 2! :D
Which is not bad. Gnome 3 wanted to be radical, while #KDE 4 was already usable and from the outside largely unchanged.
I don't know if Trinity (KDE3 fork) still exist, but Mate found a niche place on older hardware, which is good. Let KDE/#Gnome be the big bloated boy, while #Xfce/Mate/#LxQt serve the other half of the #Linux population.
Now added some error checking to the #Python script controlling the #Arduino pager transmitter; and managed to add a very basic interactive input facility to change the message that is transmitted to the pager.
Even worked out how to use git so have created a gitlab project for the code if anyone is curious about how its done.
