The issue of the Linux kernel freezing continued even after removing docker. What I did to resolve it was upgrade to the 5.10.x LTS line. Then I upgraded the nvidia driver to the latest compatible version that had been released in November [link], rebooted, and everything was working smoothly and at the correct resolution.
FOOD AND SUCH
For late breakfast I had a green smoothie and a leftover donut. Lunch was leftover steak and spinach quiche. Dinner was porkloin slices on a spinach salad topped with roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic. Dessert was tortilla chips with homemade salsa, and the last leftover donut. I also ate a few fiber bars as snacks during the day.
I ordered some magnesium supplement to help get into a better sleep cycle.
