Have spent months/years going in circles trying everything to find the perfect Goldilocks OS or computing environment and I think maybe what I want is no computers at all.
But my entire identity, family infrastructure, financial and social livelihood is entangled with them. I don't think there's an escape hatch. I can't even imagine what I'd do in my free time if they weren't around. Which is an uncomfortable thought to sit with, if not a particularly novel one.

Still looking for a good Dropbox-like that can use a Synology NAS as its backend and has cross-platform clients. Off-the-shelf options include Resilio, Synology Drive, and ownCloud.
Prefer suggestions of things you have actually used for a length of time and have proven to be reasonably stable. TIA
Stops happening if I maximize the Firefox window! Comes back if I un-maximize it. 🧐
I just created Ubuntu and Elementary VMs on my Mac and can't repro the issue on either. It only happens on the laptop that has Elementary installed on the metal. 🤔 I wonder what I did.
Seeing a strange (new?) behavior in Firefox 75 on Elementary: if you right-click on a link or a span of selected text to bring up the contextual menu, the menu disappears as soon as you release the button, activating whichever menu item was below the mouse pointer (Inspect Element, or Save Link As).
Is this just me? Firefox bug? Linux/Elementary issue?
#hyperjam is coming together nicely. 9 y.o. found out what I was doing and appointed herself art director. Tomorrow: polishing up art and looking for some royalty-free sound effects and music??
Couldn't think of anything original or artistic, so I'm making a little video poker game for the #hyperjam. Got main game loop playable yesterday, now to add some weirdness.
Don't trust any software under 30.
