A Few of My Favourite Thangs (Master List)

Greetings. Welcome. Let us Begin.

This is list is brought to you by Nemesis. And this music is brought to you by WinkiesPlace.

"WinkiesPlays," ... cut to old style radio commercial in the middle of a baseball game for WinkiesPays - 'the fun and friendly socialiste party all your friends are joining. What are you waiting for? Join the party!!!' ;) {Sam Roberts plays the coke stage at the Calgary Stampede - the crowd sings along "S-O-C-I-A-L-I-S-M it's the only way!" - 'Do they even know what they are saying?' someone wonders with an incredibly direct and intense query straight into my face. I'm not sure what they want but it seems my very barest and darkest soul is on the line as their eyes bore into me from 600 feet overhead. Sam Roberts wants something from us this evening, and it's supposed to be obvious, simple, effortless, easy as singing along to a catchy little song, it's a solid point, I know that for sure, what it is... i haven't the foggiest.}

On we go...

A few reasons this list exists:

Primarily - I am trying to prepare, publish, market, etc. a musical project I've been working on for the last little while. To get a T-shirt design up along with a sensible artist bio and some quality 'finished' music is the goal so that the project can be advertised and funded and then finished and released for you, the glorious interested public, to sink ur dirty little bloodsucking teeth into ;) but i have autism and add and a bunch of other seriously cute disabilities that have been... anyway, stuff gets tough sum times, even with all the privileges of my particular identifiers, whatever, point is I'm just trying to get shit done as best and fast and effectively as I can lol.

Secondly,

I'm trying to migrate to a Linux desktop as my main rig ASAP from Mac and using this list as a way of making it as seamless as possible. I just want to run Windows and Mac VMs inside the Linux setup - just to have them available - rolling of the eyes - ...this migration has been started and stopped and left some version of my productive, creative self in some kind of hellscape limbo, feels to my nervous system a bit like what I imagine the Shrike's Tree of ??? (look up) to imbue upon it's Users.

Criterion: (very rough, but also extremely specific lol) ... A Multi Platform/Open Source/Privacy Focused as Possible Tool Kit

Follow along as the story jumps from here to there, platform to platform, like Mario and Luigi chasing that ever receding Peach.

... a list in progress. (aka check back ... you never know where or when the story is going to update itself ;) best thing to do is... whatever u want lol

You're obviously such a creative and interesting person...please, please, please get GoDaddy out of this list so I can like it! If it's domain registration you need, the answer is Porkbun. DNS services? Cloudflare. Colocated HTTP server? Ugh, truly the cesspool of IaaS, but I have the least bad things to say about DailyRazor, I suppose.

I'll be keeping an eye on you; you've piqued my curiosity.
