  1. I wish I could amputate the awful part of my mind that thinks I've done something wrong if people don't text me back immediately

  2. Because I'm somewhat of a dumbass, I only recently learned that one of Ireland's symbols is the harp. I had some vague familiarity with the Guinness harp (though I don't drink often) but I didn't really connect it. It's on Euros too of course, but I either didn't use any when I went to Spain or wasn't paying attention.

                • 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.

                      • @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

                      • @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.

                      • @thismightbeauser Eh, I knew the audio interface was classed Experimental Support when I plugged it in, lol. I've been mostly on laptops for an amount of time that actually really surprised me when I looked back at it, lol, but I've usually had pretty decent luck doing it. Typically better than desktop, but those were always budget beige boxes I pieced together, so... And I know you just can't keep backwards compatibility forever, even I eventually gave up on keeping my vanity 5-inch floppy drive on my crappy desktops. But there's moving forward, and there's abandonment, I guess, you know? God, I just wish the industry would adopt, and adhere to, more intercompatible standards.
