I guess not everyone loves GNOME as much as I do!

Wow! A decade! Congratulations, elementary OS.
I haven’t tried elementary in quite some time, but it’s always nice to see an open-source project thrive over time. And it comes up pretty often around here.

I was a huge fan of my N810. I’m not sentimental about most tech, but I can’t bring myself to recycle it, even though I can’t think of anything to do with it (and I try and think of things periodically…).
I guess I could clean it.
Today, we are excited to unveil our first product: the Framework Laptop, a thin, lightweight, high-performance 13.5” notebook that can be upgraded, customized, and repaired in ways that no other notebook can.
This is cool: a sustainable laptop that’s designed to be upgradeable, rather than disposable. But the even better part:
…with the ability to choose Windows or install your preferred Linux distribution. Regardless of the path you take, we include a screwdriver in the box so you can upgrade over time.
I’ll keep an eye on this.

LibreOffice’s default spellcheck is awful.
I hadn’t noticed until I joined a writing group that uses Google Docs to gather feedback. Google caught a lot of stuff and I started to think it would be nice if my word processor had similar functionality in 2021.
I read up and discovered LanguageTool, a LibreOffice add-on. It requires Java, which made me nervous about performance, but it’s been fine for the past week or so. It’s not blowing my mind, but it behaves much more like a modern spellcheck, so it was worth the installation for me.
I’m not sure this is a purely Linux issue, but it’s a work-from-home technical challenge.
I use Thunderbird/Lightning as my master calendar so I can see my days in one place. I subscribed to my work Outlook feed and could see everything in Thunderbird.
For some reason, recurring events would get stuck in that calendar, though. Like if a recurring meeting moved, it would still display. On the one hand, it’s always nice to realize you don’t have a meeting. But it’s probably better to have an accurate grasp on your time.
I looked into the issue and couldn’t really see any solutions (nor even how to express the problem). But I noticed that in my Fastmail web calendar, where I also subscribed to my work calendar, everything displayed perfectly. So I now subscribe to the Fastmail version of my work calendar.
It’s not pretty, but it’s not ugly either. And most importantly of all, it works.
So if your Outlook calendar is giving you similar problems with recurring events, try adding it to a web calendar and subscribe to that.
And yes, my Plan B was to keep adding adding calendars to calendars to calendars.
