Happy (slightly belated for most) feast day of Saint Eligius / St Eloi! Known as the patron saint of Numismatists, he holds a special place in the hearts and prayers of coin collectors. We particularly remember him on the 1st of December (or the 2nd if you are a little behind, like me this week!). More info on him:

#SaturdayNightCoinShow #Numismatics #PatronSaint #SaintEligius #SaintEloi #CoinCollecting #Coins #Mint #History

An Octagonal medal with all details in a recessed circule. "Sanctus Eligius" (Saint Eligius, in Latin) around the edge, the saint himself sitting at a desk looking at coins. The desk has a representation of the Cross atop Mount Calvary similar to that depicted on Byzantine coins of the time of Saint Eligius.

I know we are all very busy just making ends meet and this makes us tired to the point of exhaustion. Sometimes the last thing we want to do is learn something new. I encourage everyone who is able to, to learn a #linux distro like #mint. The neat thing about Linux is that when you learn it, you learn what your computer is doing, why, how, and when.

Mastering your computer means that you are less likely to get taken advantage of by corporations. This is huge.

Using #OpenCollective was something someone suggested a while back, and since I want to stay out of the corporate proprietary ecosystem as much as possible, I figured why not. Imagine my surprise a while back when I realized #inxi had actually gotten some donations there!

I don't know what the big donation was for, but I do know that some companies use inxi for end user issue debugging, at least one gaming company does. As do several big distros, like #Mint, #Manjaro, #Garuda etc

Yesterday I slapped #Mint #Linux on it. The difference in performance is remarkable. The laptop is actually quite useful now.

Did You Know: These days, they don't let you run software on your computer. They make you run your software on a virtual computer that lives inside your computer instead!

But, when Ubuntu upgrades and tries to force you to use a Snap version of Firefox like that, you can just go to getfirefox . com and download a proper version that runs on your computer instead of running it on a virtual machine on your computer.

"sudo snap remove firefox" takes quite a while to run because Snap is bloated overly abstracted bullshit, but when it does finally finish you can also do "sudo apt remove firefox" and then make a shortcut in whatever menu system you use to the version you downloaded yourself.

Of course this won't prevent all the other packages on your system running on snap or let you remove snap from the machine entirely.

To fix that you can make a note to install Mint or Debian instead after the weekend when I have time.

Using a 1L bottle with 2 holes about 2cm bellow the top is helping to feed the plants in the #IKEA #Växer system with constant access to water and nutrients.

I believe that was the main reason most people who bought the units failed to enjoy it and had to resell it at low cost or simply keep it in storage unit they throw them away.

Good for me since I bought all but one unit from the French web site LebonCoin at a fraction of the price of what they were sold by IKEA.

On this unit, I have 4 #tomato plants, 1 #parsley, one giant #mint and 2 #radishes. It's consuming about 1L per day as tomatoes starting to grow, and maybe have to give more water and nutrients to help producing more in the coming weeks.

These little guys are helping me more than my medication to calm down and relax from the daily stress and troubles from horrifying news these days.

If you use #Mint for your personal finance, you probably know by now that it's shutting down. I've switched to #PocketSmith (it's not free) and have "30 day free trials" to share if you'd like to check it out. (If you end up subscribing, I get 2 months added to my subscription.)

I'm finding it a little less intuitive than Mint and have had trouble syncing one of my banks, but otherwise I'm finding it a good replacement for Mint for what I need.

After researching and trying *many* different personal finance & budgeting apps, YNAB is the only one that made sense to my visual-designer brain and successfully relieved much day-to-day financial anxiety.

The rule is intended to replace the status quo for data sharing, which is giving your banking password to third parties who go and scrape that data on your behalf. This is a tactic that comparison sites and financial dashboards have used since 2006, when #Mint pioneered it:

Ich liebe #Reisen, #Tauchen, gutes #Essen und #Kochen, bin #serienjunkie und lese gerne #Bücher. Sport ist nicht so meins, hab mich aber mittlerweile mit #Pilates, #Yoga angefreundet.

so. i have successfully reinstalled #mint.

i booted it once. it worked fine

i edited the fstab to include my home drive

i installed my keymap

i rebooted

and now it is impossible to start my display manager at all. it just does nothing. i am command-line only

at what point do i just… i don't even know what the next step is here. like i already DID the reinstall. what else could i possibly do?????

hello tech support? i need some help with my #mint please i am so fucking lost. i broke it and i don’t even know WHAT broke

i did an upgrade and now xfce has new and improved windows. in the sense that the windows no longer have frames, and cannot be moved or resized or tabbed through… so i installed gnome and gnome just puts me in a “something went wrong” screen with the only possible option being to log out. so i installed fluxbox and fluxbox works and has windows, but any gnome or xfce related tools, such as a terminal, don’t have window decorations either, so that’s no improvement.

i have NO IDEA what is going on. i am back in xfce and if i try to go into the window manager settings nothing happens, it just doesn’t open.

so something is clearly missing or broken but i don’t know WHAT???

how do i even find out what is going wrong here

(please do not tell me to just go back to my system snapshot or to do any other things i did not ask about. i am asking how to find out what broke and how to fix it in my current install. thank you)

So, on the [Linux Mint homepage](, there's a downloads link. Whenever I press Enter on it, it expands, but when I arrow down, there's just the collapsed Project link. Even when I just press Enter on the Download link and press Tab, the thing just collapses and I'm put on the Project link. I remember finding a way around that, but a user hopeful about Linux and ready to try it will probably think "Wow if their website is like this, I don't wanna know what their distro is like."
