Linux: How to compose special characters

Compose for Linux

 If you need an eñe or umlaut while composing foreign language texts, visit This site to learn how.  Sorry Windows users this is only for Linux and maybe Mac users.  I don't have a Mac so I can't say for sure.  It's limited to X11 applications but that's mostly what the normal user will be dealing with on Linux.

 Omicron has us locked in again.  We just purchased another RV.  We're going down to FL to pick it up today!  So I guess we're not locked in entirely.

Please stop hoarding.

The three main grocery stores that I have access to, Publix, Ingles, and Kroger now have senior hours.  That's nice, but I'd really like to do either pickup or delivery rather than go into the store.  Unfortunately because of the hoarders, toilet paper cannot be ordered.  As soon as a load hits the shelves within minutes all of the packages are gone.  That means the pickers will never be able to add TP to your order.  The same goes for canned beans it appears.  There were none in two of the stores I visited last week.  Also, fresh meat seems to be scarce.  Ingles had a few steaks, some chicken parts, and pork country ribs but nothing else.  I would say it was something like 10% of the normal offering.

So please stop hoarding.  Do you really need 100 rolls of TP?

Socked in

We're home and not leaving for the foreseeable future.
