    For Linux I'm quite happy with Flameshot, particularly the annotation/masking features.

    Indigrid looks similar to Workflowy, which has an Android app.

    Are you familiar with The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble? If you like Bohren & der Club of Gore you'll probably like that as well!

    This album has a special place in my heart. It's the first post-rock album I ever heard, and I first heard it at a time that I had trouble sleeping. So for a month or so, I listened to this album every night when going to bed. Not too loud, but enough to experience it properly. Usually I fell asleep around the song aptly named "Sleep". Sometimes around Antennas to Heaven. Sometimes even earlier than Sleep. Still, it helped me a lot and even though the space between listening sessions sometimes spans more than a year nowadays, I love it immensely. Bought it on vinyl, just as F#A#∞... still looking for Silver Mt. Zion stuff and Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada.. Great album!

    The reviews that I'm seeing in the play store seem genuine, although very, very positive. But it really is a lovely game from what I remember.

    One of the best puzzle games ever. This game is honestly amazing. It's difficult, but not so difficult it stops being fun. The story is clever, the goo balls are adorable, and the gameplay is near perfection. Great for older kids (10 and up) as well as adults of all ages. There's nothing inappropriate, though, so there's no harm in letting your five year old play it. There's not much replay value, but that's true of most puzzles.


    Lots of fun!! Great game!! Not sure what the current price is, as I bought this years ago, but it used to cost $5, and it's well worth that! I lucked out and got this on sale for only $0.49!! Great puzzle/adventure style game. Not too slow paced, though not too fast either. It should be a good median to please both types of players. Allows you to move past levels that you can't master, go back to them later if you want, or forget about them and keep playing towards the end. It's all up to you and how you want to do it!

    World of Goo, really cool puzzle game. I've played it on PC back in the day, but it's also available on Android/iOS for around $5.

    As I said before, you'll probably see improvements quite quickly, so I would just recommend adjusting your goals each workout. Try to keep it realistic and don't try to overtrain yourself. Hope you stay motivated and really fall in love with rowing!

    I'm not familiair with the dynamic models! Sounds quite nice though :) The split score denotes the time it takes to row 500m. So lower is faster!

    I bought a used concept2 model D a couple of months ago. I try to exercise every other day. It's true that your technique and condition will improve vastly if you keep it up. My current training goal is to get to 2:00/500m average for a 1 hour workout. I'm nowhere there yet though ;) I'm trying to alternate between length and interval sessions, so length would be 45 min on 2:20 or less and interval would be 20 min (10 min <2:20, then alternating 2 min <2:10, 2 min < 2:00). You can adjust these goals as your technique and condition improves.

    My advice is also to use a heart rate monitor as it really helped me to control the difficulty of the workouts.. And get a logcard to record your workouts!

    After using GNOME on Arch for years, I finally switched when my extensions started randomly crashing the whole desktop after a GNOME update.

    I've tried out KDE, Deepin and finally settled on Budgie. I really like how clean and fast it feels and while it's not feature complete, I don't really miss anything other than window grouping of similar apps.

    In the past I've also tried i3 and, while it took a while to get into, it was really great for development. Perhaps I should try that one out again.

    As you are coming from Solus, I'd just start with installing budgie-desktop and use that as a base for trying out other DE's, such as i3 or similar.
