Is any one on here a university first year or college freshman? Have you been able to make friends with people in your online classes? What's worked to build friendships for people you're not seeing face to face? What could your teachers or university be doing to make that easier?

@ubuntustudio Having fun with Ubuntu Studio Groovy Gorilla. This amazing release is shaping up really well. Plasma desktop looks good and is screaming fast. Jack, Carla, LSP plugins all works amazingly well!

Thanks for the great work!

should we ever really use variables like "b = 3" or "xoff = 52" which are single letter variables and unnecessary abbreviations that make it impossible to understand right away in a compiled or minified language? give me 50 character long variable names over that anyday. so much mental energy expended because of that practice.

I think I'll never stop loving Messiaen's "Theme and Variations" for piano and violin. I just love the plodding piano and syrupy violin lines.

hi all, I'm Eric, currently in Santa Fe waiting out (___)

currently I'm learning cello (slowly, ulnar nerve issues) and teaching a class on computer music remotely at CalArts, the class is currently taking up most of my time and gives me weird feelings about adjunct teaching in general
