This is a relatively cautious procedure. More steps than you're used to but way less than a rescue. As a user with sudo privileges:

df -h / /var # check available space. Stop if space is low.
# This may report the same volume twice depending on whether /var has its own file system.

sudo apt update # get new package lists

sudo apt upgrade -d # check how much space it wants to use, then download...

RSS for website version:

SCLUB is a really easy to use alternative to traditional music tracker software for DOS (and a W95/98 version) but "flows" more like a modern digital audio workstation. It also can be used to convert MIDI to MOD, to which most of what little converters that I have been able to find that...

NEWS 210106 ABOUT ExTiX Deepin 21.1

Use it in VirtualBox if you want an exact copy of ExTiX Deepin installed. Before starting Refracta...

An auto accident which maybe should have cost my life but which currently only resulted in a constantly-sore shoulder and lost my job for me. Worker's Comp ignoring me most of the year (I got all the way to getting an MRI on the shoulder and they never made the appointment with the doctor to evaluate it). My mother falling and breaking the pin in her hip, causing her to have surgery, go to a rehab facility, and, just before the end...
