    LibreWolf Won't Let Me Make it the Default Browser

    Whenever I go to the "hamburger" icon at the top right of the screen, and then go to preferences, I get this notice saying "LibreWolf is not your default browser" I'd obviously change that so it would be that, but as you can see, the "make default" option isn't highlighted. I've tried...

    My (At-First Paranoid) Thoughts About the FontOnLake Malware Attack

    When I was typing and posting this thread originally, I wasn't thinking as clearly as should've been at the time, so take what I said with a grain of salt. You'll notice I'm more rational in my update...

    Twitch Was Hacked Recently My niece happens to be one of the streamers, so I'm concerned she might become a victim of doxxing and online harassment. Not to change the subject, but because of the recent controversies regarding Chrome now being able to...

    Blurriness on Odysee

    I've been recently watching some videos on Odysee more often, and if I play them online, the picture quality is blurry, but if I download them and watch them through a video player, it's perfectly clear. I'm guessing this is a compression issue coming from Odysee's servers? How do I resolve this?

    I'm Thinking About Upgrading the Hardware of My Lenovo X200 Laptop/Tablet

    Because my device is 13 years old, and has gradually become slower and under-performing because of that, I would buy a more modern one to replace it. However, being that most (but not all) modern tablets are rather expensive, and I'd have to remove the proprietary software off of it again, I've...

    My Thoughts on How Linux Gaming Could be Taken More Seriously

    While I was watching a lets play of Xonotic earlier today, I was thinking about how Linux gaming has gradually developed more of a presence over the years, and that in-turn made me want to put the idea out there for a magazine dedicated to it. Granted, before that can become a reality, gaming on...

    Amazon Astro is Fine if You Don't Mind In-Home Mass Surveillance

    Just watched this video. If you thought Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri, or Cortana were spooky enough, you haven't seen nothing yet.

    How to Fix SMPlayer Buffering Issue

    I recently was encountering buffering issues with SMPlayer, so for anyone who's encountering that same problem, here's a simple trick to fix it: Go to Options>Preferences>Network> lower the playback quality. After I changed mine to 480p, it played flawlessly. Idk if that has something to do...

    Running Stock Android Without Using Google

    As I continue to look for a new phone, I still am finding very few recent phones that are not only capable of running either Lineage or Ubuntu Touch, but also are good, and in my price range. Some people have recommended the PinePhone, and after watching the most recent review of it, it still is...

    Created a Partition, and Now USB Won't Work (Solved)

    I'm still looking forward to hiring a software developer to help me create the Gift Economy Network. After I finally know how much it would cost to create software, I plan to take a loan out. One of the ways I plan to pay off that loan is to put Linux software onto USBs and selling them. After...

    There Needs to be More Art and Less Brands

    I was talking to one of my friends last night about Green Lantern, and it got me thinking about why most people (including me) know the names of superheroes, but don't know that many (or many specific) things about them outside of the movies, TV shows, or merchandise. After thinking about it for...

    LaGrange Gemini Client Tips and Tricks

    A while ago, I made a thread about how I don't see myself using the Gemini protocol because I found the look of it too simplistic after watching reviews from DistroTube and Chris Were, and because the developer of the protocol openly admitted they didn't want to replace the web. However, my...

    SMTube Won't Download Videos [solved]

    I recently installed SMPlayer and the SMTube add-on so I can watch videos without going to YouTube directly. While searching for videos is fine, every time I click on a video in order to play it, the SMPlayer icon blinks red and says "Connecting to Unable to download webpage".

    From Prototyping to Legitimate Devices

    While I've seen videos of the amazing things people have done with Raspberry Pi's and other similar devices, have there been some projects that actually went past the prototyping phase and into mass production?

    Names of Linux Vendors

    I was recently using TuxPhones to learn which phones and tablets are compatible with Linux because I'm still looking into upgrading my devices (I now have the money to finally do that). While I did find at one least phone I was thinking of getting, it reinforced how Linux still isn't...

    Garuda Linux

    I just came across this video from Mental Outlaw about Garuda Linux, and thinking of taking it for a spin after I upgrade my laptop: For anyone who does have a modern machine, try it out for yourself and tell me what you think of it

    Was Lil' Wayne Responsible for the Death of Mainstream Rap Music?

    Shortly before I left work tonight, I overheard the bar playing Lil' Wayne's Fireman "song" (I use that term loosely because his lyrics don't follow a specific topic, he just throws words together). Being that it came out when I was still in jr high, I don't necessarily feel old knowing it's now...

    Looking For an Inexpensive and Recent Phone That Can Run Linux

    I've been looking for a new phone for a while now, but trying to find one that's reasonably priced is enough of a challenge, and trying to find one that's 1-2 years old and can run Linux is a bigger one (mainly because mobile-based distros aren't widely supported). The closest I've gotten is...

    Engage in Netiquette the Same Way You Engage in Breathing

    I'll be the first to admit that even I struggle with this at times, but the first step to overcoming a problem is to admit you have one. As far as what he said about sarcasm, I don't agree with that completely. Yes, its easier to take something out of context, or take it the wrong way, if its...
