I'd like you to meet my cat, Spice. She's 13 years old, super friendly, and follows me all around the house. She even sleeps on my bed! I love her very much.

Wow, ever since I started working as an IT support tech I barely use my laptop. Without a gaming capable computer I have almost no occasion to use a computer outside of work.

I can't wait to have a gaming desktop again.

"Finding yourself" is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. You are also not lost. Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people's opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. "Finding yourself" is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you. - Emily McDowell

Hello everyone! I've hardly been on here the last 4 months since I started working. I miss engaging in the community here. Have I missed anything major??

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:
