@silverseams These are all lovely, but for some reason the heart + gold is super cute!

Anyone else nervous about upgrading Linux Mint 19.3 to 20? I know @9to5linux has an easy guide, but Easy Linux Tips Blog (easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.) is saying to avoid an in-place upgrade.
I'm super happy with where my system is now, I'm not sure I want to mess with things. :C Advice?

@DirkGrundy "Curdled", what a great way to describe ancient crunchy CGI.

@silverseams :D Good to know! Thanks for the update! (I might need easier ear hooks anyway, since my hair's long now and I am not good with the complex meatspace stuff.)

@silverseams Where might I procure one of these? I thought leopard print was up my alley, but then...DAT BATIK, UNF

Any 'donners out there have recommendations for budget PC speakers with subwoofer (2.1)? Mine, from like, 20 years ago, are acting finicky. Used to be if a wire wasn't in just the right place, the left speaker would go out. Now it's just worse, if I bend the wire wrong to fix it, sometimes the whole thing goes haywire (plays sound TOO LOUD and the power light is off).
I miss Radio Shack.

@Krita Oh boy! I use Krita as an AppImage on Linux Mint. When I switch to 4-3-0, do I have to do anything to make sure my installed bundles don't disappear, that kinda thing? Thanks. :3

Just released a new short novel, called THE CAPRAMANCER NEXT DOOR. A down-to-earth mage and her magical goats must save their new neighbor from being mulched in this new upbeat fantasy adventure!
@GoatsLive (who helped me get my goat facts straight) called it "A great read!"
Please check it out at

Can anyone help me find this YouTube art tutorial I watched?

It was an easy way to improve your digitally-painted skintones by making your midtone warmer and darker than you'd expect, then erasing your highlight layer on top. Gave it a really warm core shadow, it looked really good. More stylized than photogreal. I think the guy was working on a cute girl in a bikini or something barely-there. He did three different variants, too.

Same with , come to think. Can't tell if I got it from the repository (and it's just slow to update) or if I downloaded the file from the official Inkscape page.
I use almost every day so I want to make sure I'm updating correctly.
Hmmmmmm. 🤔
