      We had a real bad hailstorm here a few years back. The hail was no where near the size of tennis balls and yet it managed to break almost all the windows on one side of a hospital here. Personal property damage to homes and cars was atronomical. When you'd drive you'd see lots of blue tarps on roofs of home and hundred of cars with dimples all over. Now to ask how my friends in Canberra fared after this next round of mother nature!

      a lot of LXDE users install xfce panels to replace lxpanels, simply to have access to the Whisker Menu.  I'm still a native OpenBox/Fluxbox/PekWM right click desktop menu guy, but looking into jgmenu.  If I can figure out how to implement the Fluxbox & PekWM "settings" within jgmenu, I'll make the switch.  Until then, it's a 4th option for me.

      I do not use email to communicate with people. I use it for mailing lists, notifications and sending myself stuff to read later.

      Fires still burning in a number of places but much less than a couple of weeks ago. In a cruel twist, Canberra was hit by intense hail storms with stones of tennis ball size. Melbourne had some too but slightly less severe. Picture of hailstones in front of Australia's Parliament house in Canberra:   Check out the video in this news article, it shows a car park where every car window was smashed: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-22/what-made-the-hail-and-storms-so-bad/11886016
