    Is there a name for this kind of art style?
    Inked outlines with muted watercolours? It reminds me slightly of a simplified Art Nouveau but it very much isn't.

    To me if looks reminiscent of the naïve style of L.S. Lowry.

    Question: can anyone tell me how to move both files and programs from one drive to another without screwing up things' ability to find each other? My laptop has a small hard drive with the OS and everything on it and a big one for storage, but right now everything other than my Steam and music library is on the small drive and it's almost full. I want to move over stuff like my documents and pictures folders, as many applications as I can, etc, but I don't know how to transfer things in such a way that all the paths that lead to them remain intact.

    Does anyone have coding for a Tumblr shipping wall page where the pixels stay on one line, like this? I may have asked before but I can't find the question now.

    ETA: Scratch that, I just changed the theme and it worked. Does anyone know how to HTML up a border that will surround multiple images?

    setting up new internet, which involves looking at my old internet setup in detail for the first time. as far as I can tell, I've somehow been connected to the internet using two routers and no modem for the past several years. that's not actually possible? I'm pretty sure?? but neither of the devices I have is a combination router+modem so I have no idea what's up there lol.

    I guess I have to buy a modem tomorrow

    Any tips to stop scab-picking? I cut up my scalp a fair bit when I shaved my head, and the scabs aren't improving because I keep absently scratching/picking myself bloody.

    I wanna keep my hair close-cropped for a while yet but I probably shouldn't shave again until the raw bits have at least dried up :/

    Can you wear a headscarf or cap? That might make it easier to notice you're doing it?

    A bandana can help keep your nails away from picking. For actual healing I like Lucas' Papaw Ointment.
