Do you use any programs on your computer on a daily basis? What are they? Do you use anything so much that you instinctively launch it right after turning your PC on? Are you always connected to the Internet?

Personally I use IRC, email and webchats a lot so I have a corner of my room dedicated to an old recycled PC that only runs my clients and a web browser.

I keep KeepassXC open most of the time; it's my password manager. All of my most important passwords are random strings kept in a keyfile that's locked with a very long and complex password that I have memorized. The screenshot shows the names of seven servers that I am responsible for. Sushichan and Uboachan are hosted on Sanctum. What could all of those other servers be for? It's a mystery! :3

That's kinda on you for not keeping your backups safe.

This sounds great sushi roll. I've been having an issue with passwords recently, so I could really use this.

I've been needing to start thinking of newer ones due to getting phished on some sites. Kind of my fault since I've always used the same one or two passwords for almost every site I've ever registered on, but now it's grating of these sites always making me always think of brand new ones that need letters, numbers, special characters etc. My piss poor memory won't be able to keep up.

at work, apart from the obvious work apps and tools, i use Powertools alot. huge QoL improvement. I also use scrcpy to stream my phone screen on my pc so i don't have to touch my phone ever. all my usual apps are there like discord and stuff so i don't have to use my accounts on my work pc. :D

media: yt-dlp, VLC player, freetube, deezer for paid music streaming
notetaking: joplin

I find it funny that after years of Linux ricing, I ended up with Windows for my personal computer, and plain Ubuntu for work.
swap out Thunderbird with Gmail, add neo to the vim and that's me


I use beovim for programming and text editing (the recent treesitter and lsp integrations are great), librewolf for browsing the wired with ublock origin and vimium, mutt as my daily email client and kitty as my terminal emulator.
I listen to music playlists (downloaded using yt-dlp) through mpd.
That's pretty much all.

I use some really normal shit daily
waterfox - browser
uBlockOrigin, NoScript, Dark Reader, Cookie AutoDelete, Decentraleyes, SponsorBlock, Custom ScrollBar, Privacy Badger, Return Youtube Dislike - browser plugins that are always on
neovim - text editing and programming
godot - i'm making a game with my friends so :3
git - because of course i need version control!
nheko - matrix client for talking to my friends
ungoogled chromium - just open so i can use discord without the privacy nightmare of having the client on my computer, also for other web apps that may not work on waterfox
reaper - my personal choice of DAW, run it through a wine bottle sometimes in case there's some (possibly pirated) plugins I want to use
steam - i also run third party games through proton, it's That Good
alacritty (zsh) - personally choice of terminal emulator!
dolphin - it's the default for KDE and although I wanna get into tiling window managers, I'm lazy

besides that I just use everything else through my browser, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp are all websites afterall.


Call me overly curious but how do you manage to run Reaper over Wine? It never works out for me, the VSTs I import do load but never show their GUI properly.


> "Call me overly curious"
> proceeds to be normally curious
(don't worry about it)

I run it through Bottles! Which is a really shitty GNOME 3 desktop app that works really well (it runs on other DEs but get ready to deal with the GNOME 3 interfaces if you hate them). Bottles can be found here!: https://usebottles.com/download/

It may be a bit confusing, but what you want to do is create a REAPER Bottle then place the REAPER windows installer in your Downloads folder (it has to be Downloads). Run that .exe within the bottle, and REAPER will install itself to a virtual hard disk. Since I installed through flatpak, I access the virtual hard disk like ~/.var/app/com.usebottles.bottles/data/bottles/bottles/REAPER/drive_c. It has become necessary for me to create shortcuts to this directory because navigating that shit takes forever.

I only did this because I just want to use Neural DSP stuff in my DAW sometimes! Most Linux VSTs I import are totally fine.

waterfox my beloved
now that the dev has gone independent again and it doesn't have the looming threat of becoming another corpa browser, it's everything i could ever ask for
Add in vimium-c for max comfy

here's some more random stuff I use:
-w3m for when I just need to open some website without getting blasted by the modern web
-neovim <3
-obsidian for note taking and personal wiki type thing. Used to use notion before but it went so far down the enshittification hole that even the sunk cost couldn't keep me in.
-legally obtained cfx garritan piano vst cuz god it sounds so good but also costs more than i've made in my entire life
-kdeconnect even though I don't generally use KDE stuff, this is extremely handy just to sync clipboard between my phone and pc, and to send an occasional file without having to bother with adbfs or god forbid usb cables
