  3. My language program got restructured in the middle of learning it and somehow I got stuck doing the same lesson over and over.

  4. It's kind of neat that Sethisto and EQD are still around after all this time.

  5. I find it weird that Amazon suggested a book about mobile solar power based solely on my purchase of a Kill-a-Watt. They're not wrong, it's just a tad unsettling.

  6. It's funny that the government can take away and add to my rights in different areas within the exact same week.

  7. I just want it to be clear that what's happened is awful and messed up, I just feel like all these corporations flexing their cash is disrespectful to all the people who have died at the hands of police.

  8. Does anyone else find it particularly gross when for-profit corporations send messages about donating to charities or supporting a particular political opinion that doesn't have to do with their main business? It makes sense on the hiring end of course, and I get that companies are made of humans, but doing it on the public end just feels like capitalizing on people's emotions. The realty group holding my apartment made a donation to a campaign related to the protests. Why not give that money back to your leasers, or even your employees instead? They can then choose to do what they want with it.

  11. @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.

  12. @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

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

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

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

  24. @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.

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

  27. @thismightbeauser Especially since short term capital gains are taxed higher.

  28. @thismightbeauser So run those commands at the command line at lmk what the result is.

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

  30. @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.
