I found that switching between other distributions can better be done in a separate partition. One extra thing to do, though, is that some OS's like Ubuntu only autodetect other OS's like Windows and show these as options in the bootloader screen, but they don't do the same for other Ubuntu-like OS's like Kubuntu. So to get the options to boot into either Ubuntu or Kubuntu (or others) if you have both installed, you need to add the following line to
/etc/default/grub and follow the instructions to run
EDIT: forgot that I may need to run the following too afterwards, from the OS to be considered the main OS:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-efi-amd64-signed
A while ago I installed Kubuntu on top of Ubuntu because I had misunderstood that was an easy way to check it out. it was easy to install, just one apt package installed all that was needed, but it proved difficult to switch back to Ubuntu which I quickly wanted. Uninstalling the package left much Kubuntu stuff behind.
At the time I managed to do the important things, like switching settings back to defaults, getting the Ubuntu fonts, switching back the display manager. But several annoying things remained, like the startup logo in the splash screen still saying Kubuntu.
When you look on the internet there is much outdated information. It turns out that these startup/shutdown things are part of a "Plymouth theme" and the internet says to do
default.plymouth to switch to "ubuntu-logo", or to install the package "plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo" in
apt. But neither exist anymore. The current theme is "bgrt". But rather than switching to it manually, you can go back to the automatic default by:
sudo apt remove plymouth-theme-kubuntu-logo
Way easier, since it updates all dependent things.
me: ok, so what's the colour code of the paint I should use?
website: we do not give out our colour codes since they are a trade secret.

Interesting how the Netflix video to announce this year's Tudum event (17 June) says there's also going to be an announcement about Wednesday. Weird because season 2 was already announced and it hasn't even been written yet.
Also they suggest an announcement for Queen Charlotte, which I thought was a one season spin-off of Bridgerton.

Today, 1 June, iCarly S3 is out on Paramount+. This is one of the photos Miranda posted on her Instagram about it.
I checked a bit early, over here they clearly don't think it's today yet. While it's 20 minutes past midnight already! (And why is my service saying it will actually disappear in 18 days?)
Finally watching Prey on Disney+, I am really slow at going through my watchlist. Pre-opening title we already have the twist that this tale which follows these 18th century indigenous people in the Americas also seems to involve spaceships and monsters. We'll see what it turns out to be.
The main character, a girl who wants to become a hunter, is played by Amber Midthunder and is super cool.
Prey (2022) - IMDb
Prey: Directed by Dan Trachtenberg. With Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane DiLiegro, Stormee Kipp. Naru, a skilled warrior of the Comanche Nation, fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth.IMDb
The first twelve days of each month are the most dangerous.
(Was reminded again of Americans writing their dates wrong)
Peertube now supports remote runners for the transcoding jobs! That's the one thing I was missing, I had no idea it was in the pipeline... (I had looked into adding it myself, but found it required substantial changes to how jobs are configured, which looks like they now did).
If only I wasn't on an old Debian version which blocks upgrading...
Happy birthday to Miranda Cosgrove!
Here's one of the pics she posted on her Instagram, I'm leaving the photos of the birthday cake, her mom (because of mother's day) and of baby Miranda for you to find over there.

At least Eloise was mentioned, that is something.
So far I think the character of young Queen Charlotte is very interesting, but I dislike that she doesn't match at all, writing-wise, with the older Queen Charlotte we already knew. At least young and older Lady Danbury match very well, allowing the actresses to really sync their performances. A lot of it is Lady Danbury's story, and King George's as well.
Skipping adverts as a subscribed user on Amazon Prime Video takes about as long as watching them, but I still skip them out of principle.
Ok, so you can skip them and they are at the moment only adverts for their own programs, but I think as a paying subscriber to their streaming service I should only get the stream I'm clicking the start button on.
