I've had a really hard time these last two weeks getting back into any book. I've not DNF'd anything, but I just can't get into them.

Mistborn is so very meh compared to Tress. I just don't care about the characters or their plight yet, and given that I'm almost 300 pages in, that's not great.

Started a couple others, both are also meh.

In a bit of a slump so I've been reading some fanfic again.

@thelinuxcast ever check out the commonwealth saga by peter f. hamilton?

I'm going to have to intersperse some other books with the Mistborn trilogy. I'm 5 hours in and only 200 pages into the 2500 page trilogy. I don't think I'll ever buy a trilogy all in one book again. It is just too long. Especially Sanderson who can't seem to write anything small.

I should have made this decision earlier today since I had a hold come in from Libby, but I already delayed it.

@thelinuxcast are you reading smaller books? How are you reading so many lol. Just started rereading Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone and just now got to chapter 10. Then again I’m only reading a chapter or 2 when I’m about to go to bed.

@thelinuxcast when you were testing kde. did you try any flatpak apps? i could never get theming to work properly, the mouse would always switch to the default gtk gnome theme one and have the gtk theme. i tried the kavuntum or whatever theme/flatpak breeze theme/permissions etc, but nothing worked.

@thelinuxcast ended up just using send to kindle. Having the books on my iPhone at work is pretty nice for breaks.

@thelinuxcast of course Amazon has a random spring sale and kindle paperwhite se is way cheaper than the 16gb one. So I ordered the se and will return the 16gb lol.

@thelinuxcast how did you learn to use wm? Every time I try one I want to punch my monitor or something. Maybe windows broke me so now all I can do is use mouse and floating windows lol.

Looks like the pod will not be up until sometime tomorrow. Kdenlive version 24.04.02 strikes again. This time burned my editor.

I can't stress this enough, if you edit videos, do not upgrade to Version 24.04. It is completely broken in many ways. #video #podcast #linux #kde #kdenlive

@thelinuxcast why caffeine? why not just disable sleep and screen off/lock in settings?

ryankage,
@ryankage@mastodon.social avatar

@thelinuxcast i guess i don't understand the difference. isn't that how the built-in settings one works? just turn it on and never worry about it? unless you want a weird schedule for it?

ryankage,
@ryankage@mastodon.social avatar

@thelinuxcast lol i torrent all the time. so i just leave those settings on 24/7. when i'm done with pc i just shut it off at night or when i go to work in morning.

ryankage,
@ryankage@mastodon.social avatar

My biggest issue with using Libby and Hoopla to get library books is that I put a shit ton of books I want to read on hold, and then they all come due at once. Luckily, you can delay them as often as you want, but it still can be frustrating. #books #reading #amreading #bookstodon
