>>240442 I think this is due to his style, I think he's trying to be impressionistic? Impressionism, but I think that for impressionism you have to filter the story through the subjective lens of a character and Stoner has a ln external narrator, so I think thats not the case I think the point of the prose is to get straight to the point and it focuses on making the story flow smoothly I'm not a lit pro this is just a guess

>>240531 >it's making me too depressed frankly Oh, really? It doesn’t have that effect on me at all. I don’t know why, but I keep believing in the character and think he’s very strong, he’s a true hero in the literal sense for me, that’s why I find it so enjoyable to read this book and observe his development. >>240532 My guess is that a brief style only fits the main character of this book. He probably thought that a book which has a protagonist like Stoner shouldn’t be one of voluptuous remarks, but of concise clarity. The writing style depicts the emotional life of Stoner.

Chapter 12: love.
Germany Bernd 2022-11-26 08:16:37 ⋅ 14m No. 240663
I think, Chapter 13 corresponds with my opinion that the writing style corresponds to the soul life of Stoner. In this chapter, the author takes his time to describe the relationship between Stoner and Driscoll. He describes beautifully what love really means. A quote from the chapter that stuck with me is the following: > And it occurred to him at last, with the finality of knowledge, that he had never known another human being with any intimacy or trust or with the human warmth of commitment.

Man goes on shooting rampage after losing battle with wife <A man believed to be trying to take revenge on his former spouse went on a shooting spree on Thursday, killing at least three people before taking his own life. The incident occurred in the town of Krymsk in Russia’s southern Krasnodar Krai Region. <According to Telegram channel Mash, the suspect was a 66-year-old man named Vladimir Zhirov, who had snapped after losing a court battle with his ex-wife over an apartment she had allegedly purchased for their son using her husband’s money. After a three-year legal process, the court reportedly refused to grant Zhirov an expected share of the property. <The man then started pursuing his former wife and issuing threats, according to media reports. On Thursday afternoon, Zhirov chased her into a shopping center, threatening her with a long rifle covered with what appears to be a large towel.  <After the woman asked bystanders for help, Zhirov opened fire and went down the street shooting people at random. According to law enforcement officials who spoke with TASS, at least three people were killed and one man was wounded in the incident, which was caught on video. <After the killing spree, Zhirov reportedly drove home, where he shot himself while sitting in his car.

>>240506 SpiralLinux logo SpiralLinux Linux, faster than a snail Download Documentation Bugs Forum News Welcome to SpiralLinux SpiralLinux is a selection of Linux spins built from Debian GNU/Linux, with a focus on simplicity and out-of-the-box usability across all the major desktop environments. SpiralLinux serves as an alternative live installation method for a highly reliable customized Debian system using only official Debian package repositories. SpiralLinux Cinnamon edition SpiralLinux XFCE edition SpiralLinux Plasma edition SpiralLinux Gnome edition SpiralLinux Mate edition SpiralLinux Budgie edition SpiralLinux LXQt edition SpiralLinux features Installable live DVD / USB images around 2GB in size and carefully configured for a wide array of popular desktop environments Built from Debian Stable packages with newer hardware support preinstalled from Debian Backports Easily upgradable to Debian's Testing or Unstable branches with just a few clicks (instructions) Optimal Btrfs subvolume layout with Zstd transparent compression and automatic Snapper snapshots bootable via GRUB for easy rollbacks (instructions) Graphical manager for Flatpak packages and preconfigured Flatpak theming Font rendering and color theming preconfigured for optimal legibility Preinstalled proprietary media codecs and non-free Debian package repositories ready to use Broad hardware support with a wide array of proprietary firmware preinstalled Extensive printer support with relaxed permissions for printer administration Optimal power management with TLP preinstalled VirtualBox support available out-of-the-box Enables zRAM swap by default for better performance on low-end hardware Normal users can operate and administer the system without recurring to the terminal Depends entirely on the Debian infrastructure, thus avoiding the "developer-hit-by-a-bus" concern Installed system can be smoothly upgraded to future Debian releases while retaining its unique SpiralLinux configuration Why another Debian-based distro? Great question. Debian does an excellent job of providing the fundamentals needed for a highly reliable and flexible operating system. However, it is a sprawling and impersonal organization that does not focus on being friendly for the end-user. So a plethora of Debian-based distributions have arisen with the objective of adding a layer of polish, albeit with varying degrees of success. Most of these efforts depend on a single developer or a small group of developers with far fewer resources than the official Debian project. Many such projects create custom packages and supplemental package repositories that will cease to exist and leave their users stranded in the event that the project ever ceases to function. SpiralLinux, on the other hand, has been carefully designed to be completely dependent on the extensive development resources and excellent package infrastructure of the upstream Debian project. Debian itself provides a base system that is capable of being very user-friendly when properly configured. This is where SpiralLinux comes into play. Great effort has been expended in polishing the SpiralLinux default configuration for all the major desktop environments using the packages and mechanisms that Debian itself provides. So in effect, a SpiralLinux installation is actually a legitimate Debian installation that can be infinitely upgraded from the official Debian repositories while retaining its unique SpiralLinux configuration.

I've used Linux on the desktop since approximately 2001, with Debian-based distributions playing a key role in that experience. I have always appreciated Debian's extreme flexibility, reliability, speed, and excellent core infrastructure. But for desktop usage, Debian's lack of polish and geeky nature always led me to avoid it for myself and other users that I support. This projects sets out to change that. I am also the creator and maintainer of the GeckoLinux set of spins built from openSUSE. Special thanks to:

Tried to fix the lighting in my garagehood. Bought new mighty powerful 1kW lightbulbs, found a special vehicle that can reach up to the streetlights that no longer work, but had to cancel everything today. You see, when the streetlights do not work, they don't consume any electricity. And that means that garagemen don't need to pay for it.
Moscow Bernd 2022-11-25 18:34:58 ⋅ 13h No. 240509
Based on what I pay for electricity for my garage, the lights would've costed approx. $2.5 per year per garage. You may now make the Mordor Ork jokes.
