So I decided to move my gpu to a different pci-e slot and now it wont boot.

Sigh, looks like I'm going to be working out of laptops until I figure out what I broke.

So a team at work has a change plan to install their program as a spicific user, but have been running into 'permission issues' and have just been installing things as root.

Ethereum/VeChain Supply Chain By Brendan Laiben from OCI

Blockchain -an ethereum tech app for (business) supply chain track.

@djsumdog Ruins everyone's lives. Big brain William T. Sherman had some pretty great shit to say about this, especially the stuff he said before the war started and the responses when people complained that he burned people's homes.

:wtsherman: I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.

:wtsherman: You people of the South don't know what you are doing. This country will be drenched in blood, and God only knows how it will end. It is all folly, madness, a crime against civilization! You people speak so lightly of war; you don't know what you're talking about. War is a terrible thing!

:wtsherman: War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.

I've never seen a better argument for the pointlessness of applying morality licenses to software. Either;

b) the Bad Thing is being done by (or for) a state who hold themselves above the law including copyright law.
