Hmm... Apparently the GNOME calculator, system monitor, logs, and characters programs are installed as snaps in Ubuntu 18.04.

kramer and newman get investigated by the sec for their start up “Bleedr” that sells young peoples blood to rich people with matching types. jerry breaks up with his gf after she leaves him a voicemail. elaine thinks she got a job as jeff bezo’s assistant, but he thinks they’re dating. george accidentally joins ISIS

My favorite thing about appimage is that I can download it once and transfer it to any computer. Saves my data.

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, !

Somehow, I'm able to install Firefox on my work Windows 7 computer without an administrator password.

Omg lol my laptop's screen's backlight gave out while I was giving a presentation. I tried my best to pretend that nothing was wrong, but I may have given something away when I had to put my face 6 inches from the screen.

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 :(

Omg my barber has a clock that works backwards so he can look at it in the mirror lol.

Sometimes my computer does this thing where after waking from suspend and unlocking GNOME, it freezes, but I can change between TTYs, and there are these graphical artifacts on the screen.

LGBT-X
mini-LGBT
LGBT-HD
LGBT 2000

LGBTQ.11ac
μLGBTQ (embedded only)
LGBTQ Creative Cloud

I'm sure this isn't true, but I often get the feeling that when Google Mail receives an email from a non-Google Mail account, they hide it in the spam folder. And what's worse is they even hide the spam folder!

I just found out that what I thought was the "insert" function of a 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.

If you wear glasses, are they clean? Take a moment and clean them up so you can see a little better.
