    • securitybreach, now I think I see what's up with that Anarchy repo. 2nd screenshot in the "Select Your Software" section here: https://www.maketecheasier.com/anarchy-linux-review/   So the repo wasn't added during the installation that I did because I didn't choose anything from there, looks like. I certainly would have avoided doing so if I even noticed that -- the reason I tried Anarchy was to see if I could do an installation without any outside repos.
    • Dev channel update to 80.0.328.4 is live The update includes numerous fixes for improved reliability and changed behavior.
    • Never too old to learn. At least you're not millennials. (or for millennials - your? yaw? 🙄) There was an interesting current affairs program on our local ABC (government funded public station) the other night. Apparently back in the 50s and 60s when I went to school, English was taught with emphasis on recognising phonics ie. the individual sounds that make up words. This was changed to just teaching recognition of whole words which has recently been proved to be way less effective. Some schools have gone back to using phonics and the results have been remarkable with most students improving a whole grade in English over a couple of years!
    • Cool, security. I really don't feel so comfortable with Arch derivatives, or with installing Arch any other way besides by the book. Not that I've really had any bad experiences with any of the Arch derivatives I've tried (except a couple of recent installation attempts with ArchLabs -- couldn't get it installed for some reason). Anarchy seems ok, though. I would have tried to use it to get Arch with only Openbox, but I was kinda pressed for time and I wasn't exactly sure how to do it, even though I've done an Arch installation with only Openbox (no DE) in the past. So I went with Xfce instead.
