Using LibreCalc on Linux. Input DEC10 and it stays there. Never seen this problem. Is it only Excel?

Both Japan and South Korea are authoritarian vassals of the US, itself a fascist state whose "elections" are rigged. That doesn't let China off the hook, though its village, county, provincial, and national elections are democratic, ie people vote for candidates, but then neither are the US and its two servants paragons of virtue. Do more research.
Would these SJWs please take Etymology 101 before banning every other word in English. Blacklist has nothing to do with ethnicity or BLM or IOU or WTF, etc. Stop the nonsense. A few changed words will not covert bigots to saints. It takes more..such as intelligent thought.. Yeah, I know, too hard.
also black-list, "list of persons who have incurred suspicion, earned punishment, or are for any reason deemed objectionable by the makers and users of the list," 1610s, from black (adj.), here indicative of disgrace, censure, punishment (a sense attested from 1590s, in black book) + list (n.1). Specifically of employers' list of workers considered troublesome (usually for union activity) is from 1884. As a verb, from 1718. Related: Blacklisted; blacklisting.
That depends on his owners. The voters have no say. Can Trump keep up the charade while his owners pillage what's left of the US? The BLM distraction is working, dogs chasing their own tails, destroying their own neighborhoods, killing each other. Yep, those morons deserve him for another term at least.
Which's what we did in Thailand. Tough lock down for two months - bars, restaurants, pubs, markets, discos, dept stores, malls, sports. No booze. Borders sealed. Local groceries, 7-11, pharmacies, medical services OK. Out of 73 million, we lost 58. Only new cases in 40 days are Thais returning from infected countries. Lock down now relaxed, almost normal but masks, distancing recommended.
But we have an ex-military PM, who gives orders but listens to doctors, who run the Covid19 program. It's working. Internal travel now allowed. Just opened limited southern holiday resorts to selected nationalities, who must be Covid free.
Strange not seeing the smiles of Thais but now they smile with their eyes. The Mystic East...
Switched from MInt after some years, due to no support for Qt, which runs some of my new apps. Went to Kubuntu, which is F1 Ferrari compared to Mint Family Saloon for features, tuning, precision, esp. for touchpad. Frustrating to set set up due to so many choices, but fixed unfixable Mint problems. Upgraded to Kubuntu 20.04. Excellent. Sorry old Mint, even though Mint XFCE can handle Qt, doesn't do the rest..
Call me after the Covid plague lock down of "Gee, what Opportunities now I'm out of Work" passes, the vigilant citizenry subsides back into torpor and complacency and the questioning few question the money they spent of "Mindfulness" courses.
I'll be down the local, in a corner with my pint, watching the next generation of world changers. I was with the last lot.
1. Uighurs not tortured. Those who fought for ISIS (CIA) in Syria are detained. The rest are given instruction in Mandarin language and taught trades.
2. Riots in HK provoked by US via NED, over lack of implementation of UK promised reforms. Remember Hong Kong was "occupied Chinese territory" for a century. They're taking it back.
3 Taiwan was occupied by CIA backed Fascists under Chiang Kai-shek in 1949, local Formosans massacred. China wants it back.
2. Surveillance is about the same as UK (you have more CCTV/capita) and the US (has NSA).
4. Freedom of Speech? Watch CNN in the US today. Enjoy...
5. Xi is still elected every 5 years, if the party agrees (and he has many rivals). No president for life!
6. US is increasingly totalitarian, while UK is trying but can't work it out yet.
El Regers might know some code, but very little about the world. Do more research, children.
Relax. Trump will go when his owners say so, not before. They, not the voters, installed the fool, and he's done a good job: tax breaks for buddies, division of the rabble and lower middle class, outrage among the minorities, while the Fed's owners give themselves a few trillion bonus for all their hard work. They see the empire's finally got too expensive to maintain without milking the locals, who are finally waking up. Trump's orders are ignored, his decisions reversed daily. Does he even notice? So relax, the owners have it all under control.
These defiant gestures might salve your conscience but the end-of-the-world is nigh, whether you reuse chopsticks or batteries or not. Your carbon footprint is a smudge on the landcape compared to industrial, unstoppable demolition of the world. Relax, have a pint, and read your email.
Xiaomi's one of the expensive "Smarties" here (Bangkok), but there are loads of good Chinese models for ~$30. Even Xiaomi's quite cheap.
