  2. @scribus Linux on laptops is almost always a mistake unless it's a Chromebook in Google's VM. There is too much nonstandard hardware that usually something dumb breaks. I tried overwriting ChromeOS with plain Xubuntu on my Chromebook and there was no sound, suspend didn't work, and if you don't install a special version of Ubuntu (Gallium) the touchpad doesn't work right.

  3. @scribus I hate IBM-like computers and avoid them for anything that makes sense to at this point. For gaming I look for the Switch version, even if it's more expensive. I like my Chromebook because it's a good platform for Linux without basic hardware nightmares, but it also prevents you from doing much with external devices unless you're willing to defile ChromeOS by sidestepping their VM environment. There are too many parts in any operating system anymore. Apple loves to break backwards compatibility because it becomes too much effort to support everything after a while, but it sucks for the users. Make sure you don't upgrade to 10.1000.2000.12 because it breaks this one specific program that only works on versions .10 and .11. Then you get into this weird situation where two of your tools work in different ranges of versions and you're screwed. I can understand why they'd get rid of 32 bit compatibility, since no computer runs 32 bit processors anymore, but it still stinks

  9. @scribus That's okay. I feel that, especially with the way the world has been lately.

  10. I find it way more amusing than I probably should that there's a Homestar*Runner reference in the Node.js documentation.

  12. @mrmattimation I doubt God will allow the world to last that long considering how much less time he waited to incarnate.

  15. @mrmattimation Is that what that was about? Was wondering why I was breaking even again. It concerns me that the market is influenced by anything he says. It's clear he hasn't been very concerned with the truth this whole time, but calming people down, as the deadlines for "opening up the country" keep moving further out as he continues to claim they're right around the corner. It's harmful to the response as people who aren't paying attention may miss the actual directions and continue to spread this thing when the fake deadlines come up.

  17. @thismightbeauser But I guess if you're concerned about that then you'd want to wait a year, idk

  20. @scribus Can you give me your `lsb-release -a` and your `nginx -v` also? Thx.

  21. @mrmattimation You would probably be better off just buying as much as you can afford and holding onto it for a few months, regardless of how much it drops in the short term, but I'm no financial expert.

  22. Another thing I wonder about is "let's make ventilators" just some sleight of hand to get the government to let the auto manufacturers to stay open while continuing business as usual in the shadows. I mean, likely not. Hopefully? I've probably just had too much time to overthink it. The unions certainly wouldn't tolerate it.

  23. @scribus I mean, there's Bill Gates and whatnot. On the other hand you get people like this guy, who think it's an okay idea to keep making electric cars at a moderately high risk of illness to his employees with no one to buy them. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875471

  24. @scribus I realize you're just joking, but with all of the ill will that circulates about rich people, it makes me wonder if the stigma is self-perpetuating because all the smart (good?) ones don't talk about their wealth. So it looks like rich people are scabs when in reality the scabs are the only ones talking about having money at all.

  28. @thismightbeauser I would have renewed it myself, but all the controls are locked, even though it's still under their ownership and still resolving. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875464

  29. @scribus Can you point me to the directions you're using? I could try it.

  30. I accidentally let my domain expire and now I'm really freaking out because I only just noticed today, which is coincidentally the very last day of my provider's grace period... http://rainbowdash.net/url/875463
