I have now had three debian based computers, that when running low on storage space, suddenly and inexplicably fill the rest of the way up (to 0 bytes free), and fail to delete files. That is, the files are removed, but the space is not relinquished.
Of the three systems this has happened to, one recovered after reboot (though the space from files deleted during the glitch was never relinquished).
The other two continued to fail to free space from deletions, (or even to boot properly)
I've got an old computer (Dell Optiplex GX240), and I've just installed Debian 9 on it, and I've found that booting into X outputs an invalid resolution (or at least one that none of my monitors will accept). xrandr also doesn't appear to recognize the display
(ctrl+alt+f2 to a console still works, just not X)
However, booting the computer with the monitor unplugged, and plugging it in after booting into x, somehow "fixes" the issue...
This is why I can't have nice things
Apparently a lot of electric cars, when they run out of battery, they lock the transmission into park. This means that in order to tow them, you actually have to charge them a little bit first (because you have to put a car in neutral to tow it)
Maybe it's just me, but this seems moronic. You should _always_ be able to tow a car, especially in emergency situations!
I don't believe it! I've found _another_ reason to hate USB!!! (Especially USB-C!!!)
I was reaching around my computer to plug a USB-C cable in, and as I couldn't see, I accidentally plugged it into a USB-A port. Fun fact, this shorts the port!
Now, surely USB being as "smart" as it is, it just turns the port off, right? NO! It turns the _whole_ computer off! At least it doesn't kill the computer, but still. This is 2021, we can do better!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have lost work to recover
I'm a young beginning programmer interested in all areas of computing. I'm working on building my own game engine. I also love to tinker with hardware.
