I've had some people ask me to create a video on my experience running Linux on a Dell XPS 15 9570. Here is my take on using it for the past 8 months. In short, it's a great system and I've enjoyed using it but it has presented a few challenges.
I'll be streaming a follow-up to the LibreOffice Calc session with Serge tomorrow, Sunday 10/13 @ 10:30 AM EDT (12:30 PM GMT) where he takes us through features like charts, pivot tables and database functions. He'll also take questions from chat. Hope to see you there. https://youtu.be/Fij2L9HCStE
I had an issue recently where I ran out of memory and almost lost quite a bit of work. This happened because I had too little swap space available. I haven't thought about it in quite a while so I did some research and thought I'd share some thoughts. https://youtu.be/TQwHOVeIg_k
I created what I hope to be a good resource for people wanting to try Linux but worried about damaging their existing system. This gives them a safe way to test and maybe decide they want to take the next step. I'm still pretty new at this so I welcome feedback on how to improve these kinds of videos. Thanks for checking it out! https://youtu.be/p_gLG0aaKUo
@gnome 3.34 hit the Arch Extra repo. Time to go try it out. Exactly how I like to spend my Friday evening. 👍
I had a simple task to complete with some audio files and didn't want to have to repeat the process multiple times. Fortunately, Audacity makes this easy. Here's a quick video showing how to use Audacity macros to easily apply effects to multiple files. https://youtu.be/_DZeio_ansE

I continue my quest to try the Cinnamon desktop environment on different distros. This time it's on Arch Linux using the Archfi and archdi installation scripts. The video covers install and config as well as adding essential software. https://youtu.be/EJQZKqgajSc
Join me tonight at 8 PM EDT as I continue with Regolith Linux
- navigating the i3 desktop and editing the configuration file. This is the current @BigDaddyLinux Distro Challenge so hopefully this helps people acclimate and test it out. See you there!
It's time for us to give back -- not just to our community, but to those less privileged.
