Keeping track of my brushing and flossing helped me become consistent. I use the Android application Loop Habit Tracker. It might also be helpful to designate a set time for brushing, say, right after waking up.

Are you by chance a fan of Atlas Shrugged? Your line of logic in this thread is in line with the ideas espoused in John Galt’s radio broadcast.

Telling of what? It’s unclear what the point of your previous comment is and as it stands, it is unhelpful.

Yes, LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is being worked on as an alternative in case Ubuntu ever goes tits up.

As an addendum, calcurse is available on Android through termux, which lets me keep my daily schedule and to-do list synchronized across devices. I have a FAT formatted pendrive to transfer the ical file between my phone and desktop after I update it. It’s perhaps not as efficient as a self-hosted solution mimicking Google Calendar, however it is far simpler.

However, I doubt I’ll ever use it: Emacs’ built-in capabilities for spreadsheets using org-mode are on par with Grist for a single person. Organizations would benefit from the ability to limit what single employees can view on a master spreadsheet, though.

And for any friends using vim, sc-im might be of interest. Here’s a review by Tavis Ormandy, even!

I misread this as OpenOffice: OnlyOffice looks pretty neat!

Well, Grist looks interesting and quite promising!

I was curious about that as well; I removed my downvote now that it has been fixed, however. is also cool; I quite enjoy the c/10_0 community posts that pop up from time to time with lovely photos.

Tennyson’s Idylls of the King. It’s the beautifullest English I’ve ever read.

Well, much like you, I am slowly learning how to use simpler, more efficient tools, but it takes some time to get acquainted with new software. My most used machine is my desktop, which runs OpenBSD and Linux Mint. I’ve been slowly branching out from Emacs, which is what I typically use for everything except web browsing where JavaScript is needed.

I have begun to use many of the recommended programs from, including ksh, zathura, snownews, profanity, nnn, ranger, cmus, feh, aerc, mg, links, and ffplay. I also use groff, cwm, xterm, calcurse, elvis, dictd, clang, weechat, latex, as well as a couple heavier programs like qemu, qutebrowser, librewolf*, turtl*, kiwix*, discord*, gnome-boxes*, steam*, and dino*. I gave up on mutt because I found it too difficult to set-up properly with my current knowledge. The rest is fairly simple to use.

It ultimately depends on what one’s goals are, however. I only have 4GB RAM on my desktop, which means the lightweight programs I use on OpenBSD allow me to open as many applications as I please without risking crashing my system, which is unfortunately not the case with Cinnamon. The idea behind my software choices is typically efficiency, but I also desire to discover the world outside of Emacs. The biggest compromises I make are Steam and Discord. The rest is FOSS though, so I’m not going to get into a purity-spiral over only using minimalist software, especially if it detracts from my efficiency.

I never realized there were more issues of Ubunchu!

The best name suggestion I’ve heard yet.

There is a c/gnu community already, but unlike c/linux, it is not a catch-all for any vaguely technology-related post.

Well, the gaming industry drove me away through all the practices mentioned over the past 8 years. I’m not a fan of half-finished games, or ones that strip out content to lock it behind a paywall. I grew up in the 2000s without this stuff, playing mostly what are now classic games. Not having to deal with incompleteness has proved to be one of the most rewarding sides of finding and playing classics from the 90s.

And finding indie games has never been easier, so I certainly agree, it is a golden age. There are a lot of talented developers on alone.

Playing ASCII, pixelart-based, indie, or pre-2010 games. It’s hard to have performance issues with games that require so few resources. As a bonus, such games are often very affordable. It’s not a solution for all types of gamers, but it’s worth considering.
