I know we all heard of the Seti@home shutdown last week, but there is a new viable project. Folding@Home has been around for nearly as long as SETI@Home, but they have turned their efforts toward speeding up research toward treatments to battle COVID-19.
If you have spare cycles, I would ask you to consider spending them here.
Don't pay for expensive PDF editing tools – use LibreOffice Draw! Since LibreOffice 6.4, it lets you consolidate (join) multiple text boxes into a single one, which is great if you've imported a PDF and the text content is split up into lots of chunks: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2020/03/06/libreoffice-power-feature-join-text-boxes-after-importing-pdfs/
Reasons I might not accept your follow request:
1. I have no idea who you are, AND one of the following...
2. Your account does not have enough content for me to have a sense for the kind of person you are.
3. Your account has enough content for me to get a sense of who you are, but our interests do not align at all, making me think you decided to follow me by accident.
PineBook Pro (+)
Waited a few days and pacman had some new updates for me to install. This seems to have been enough to fix the issue.
I suppose this is the good and the bad of using a distro that has updates so often. Bugs that make a computer next to unusable can frequently pop up, but just as frequently get fixed.
PineBook Pro (+ & -)
+I have successfully installed Manjaro on my #PineBook's eMMC.
-Any time I click the button to look for software updates or add/remove software I get logged out, both on my account and the root account.
+Typing sudo pacman -Sys in Terminal handled the one update I had, and sudo pacman -Syu [appname] installs software.
-App to adjust system settings randomly crashes, though.
-I'd try forcing a reinstall of crashing apps but I don't know their actual names.
Upon further inspection it appears my microSD card is done for. 64 GB card can't be formatted and Windows seems to think it has less than a GB of space, usable or otherwise.
Third card I've had die since getting the PineBook. 4th if you include the one snapped in half after the cat knocked my card reader off the desk.
The good news is I got them cheap. The bad news is I think I know why they were cheap, now.
I've been enjoying Manjaro Arm on my #pinebookpro ... except for the random update every month or so that breaks it to the point where I have to do a full reinstall.
I'm thinking this latest meltdown is a good excuse to try a different distro.
@theartguy I read this to my partner, a nurse, she said “don’t forget watery, lumpy, and faucety”
I have no idea what to do with that. Faucety Jazz.
