Linux Mint has two excellent utilities (both GUI) USB Stick Formatter and USB Image Writer. I just get my downloaded ISO, format the stick, write the image, done. It's way easier than using a DVD writer. Faster to write, boots faster when written.

I downloaded Etcher for Linux 64bit. But I then realized I would need a little
hand-holding in order to do this for the first time ever. That's right, I have
never, so far, made a single USB drive OS successfully. A bit imtimidating...
In fact, I have never. so far, even made a single attempt. Just something a little
off putting about the whole task... It's sitting in my Downloads folder for now...

Notepads are neat but so too are tools for the pc. ZIM is a neat program, this is the sort of thing you can do with it,

Easy to set up , easy to use, and easy to keep backups. I find it very very useful as it is easy to forget stuff if you are unfamiliar with it and if you only use stuff once in a while.

Zim Desktop Wiki is excellent, I've been using it for years to keep notes.

I think I started to use Zim after reading one of your posts way back. I find it invaluable. :breakfast:
