I just realized "cromulent" is nearly a twenty five year old Simpsons reference...

I'm from the UK, and I can confirm that Braintree is a town in Essex, east of London.

And we also pronounce "Worcester" as "Woos-ter" (and Leicester = "Less-ter"; Gloucester = "Gloss-ter"; etc). But why "Cholmondeley" is pronounced "Chumly" is beyond me!

"Athol" is a Gaelic name ("New Ireland"), and the Duke of Atholl is apparently the only citizen of the United Kingdom entitled to maintain his own private army.

A lot of towns in the state of Massachusetts are indeed named after towns over in the jolly old motherland England smile

Re: July 2020 Screenshots

A lot of Algonquian (native American) names as well, such as Massachusetts.

I haven't visited since 1993. I'll give you a great bicycle tour of downtown Charleston, SC, though.

Lol, I was born in Massachusetts and I still spell-check it every time. The states of New England... Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and then the states I grew up in... Connecticut and Massachusetts. As if a dysfunctional family wasn't enough. Connecticut??? Part of the whole Iroquois tribe, I think...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohegan-Pequot_language

I don't know much about it, but my mom is from Montreal and her grandmother or something was Iroquois, so I am part American Indian. I never checked if I'm eligible for some of that sweet casino revenue.

I kinda like Come by Chance, Newfoundland,  I believe it is found in Conception Bay.

Have fun: Newfoundland place names will make blush.

Actually I was wrong but you are probably going to like this too.

Come by Chance is on Placentia Bay, I think they misspelled Placenta myself.

Have fun exploring Newfoundland

^ Placentia is derived from a Latin word meaning "pleasant place to live." The city name came from that change.

^Thanks for this.

Let's try not to forget Hikari as another compositor / window manager option to replace Openbox when Wayland becomes unavoidable.

Hikari runs pretty smooth. I've used cwm in the past, so I'll probably customize it a bit more. Right now just using it with wofi to launch applications.

There are also waybox and wayfire -  I don't know if there are deb packages for them yet.

Re: July 2020 Screenshots

Hikari looks interesting, promising.
Although I believe I'll be able to use openbox/Xorg for many years still...

Good to see waybox is getting some love, half a year ago it looked worse.
But even so, it still doesn't look very good. Looking around the repo, it seems it doesn't do much besides rendering openbox themes. No rc.xml, no keybinds or actions etc...

No conky,.. it is a notification, triggered at song start/change by audacious' desktop notifications plugin.
Using 'dunst' as notification-daemon (replacing xfce4-notifyd which is default in MX).
