A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.
I've admired Linux over the years & have moved my main box over.
Desktop: MX Linux 18
Laptop: MX Linux 18
Old Laptop: Bodhi 5
Previously bewitched by OpenSUSE, Peppermint, Porteus, Lubuntu, Linux Lite.
Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable computing all figure into my love for Linux.
#gaming is in my blood
I enjoy playful flirtations with my imagination, inspired by gaming. The emotional adventures that can be had.
I enthuse, I write, I podcast, and champion the niche in almost all forms of entertainment.
I prefer communities that support consideration & mutual respect, maturity & passionate discussion.
I'm a Dad & a Kid (at heart).
Games, even at their most basic, can unlock realms of excitement and untold adventure.. bring it on..

Be the leader who rallies, aids & commands your band of outcasts & misfits and who makes the pathing & narrative decisions on your perilous journey.

Really enjoyed the insights/perspectives presented & am well impressed that they offer PDF transcripts of their episodes for those who want to read and not listen.

I posted a somewhat philosophical question on reddit regarding #orgmode and how you do your files. It's a pretty... slow community. Any long-term org users want to jump in maybe?
@spelk The thing I find most baffling is when people go to great efforts to grow an entirely different biome to the one where they live. Like those people who go to Arizona and then engineer their garden to grow a lawn. I mean, I appreciate the determination, but what's so bad about enjoying the plants which will grow in the existing biome?
