Something amazing just happened with my laptop. It has been infected with stuxnet for x86_64 apparently lol.
Actually I don't know what happened yet. But I have never been so scared to touch computer before. Although I think it's the speaker making the noise and not any moving parts.
Maybe it's a firmware issue... I should post a video. It's wild, loud, and crazy.
Flatpak updates and firmware updates in GNOME Software. Thanks, #LFVS!
I guess I shouldn't be using the alias for communication anyway, since it is so difficult (impossible?) for mail servers to tell if an email alias is being used honestly.
I guess I can still use it to sign up for things online, so it will be easier if I ever need to migrate to a different email provider.
My linux.com emails have been getting marked as spam for years by Gmail, and today I got my first actual mailer daemon rejection notice.
I think it's because someone has recently been spoofing my email address and sending spam to the contacts in my old Yahoo! Mail address book. (Down with Yahoo!!)
And seeing as how almost everyone in the US is using Gmail (down with Google! lol), I might have to give up using my cool linux.com alias :(
I just found out that what I thought was the "insert" function of a #keyboard is actually called "overtype" or "overwrite"... and that the normal text input method is called "insert."
But you have to push the insert key to get to overtype. So... I assume overtype was the default at some point in history??
I take MR Weasley's advice on #InternetOfThings "Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain?”
I trust him because he is an expert on muggle artifacts.
