@NickFreeman @RussSharek Just because you can learn how to fix something, and actually know how to fix something, doesn't mean you want to spend the time fixing it.

My day job i try to fix things all day. At home, I want it to "just work".

I work at as a process engineer.

about semiconductor processing.

(I will not be answering questions about CPU design specifically, but about semiconductor processing in general)

Well, boltcutters did the trick. Now to figure out how to get the damn thing off the laptop for good, without damaging the laptop.

the best tether ball game ever made

Also a great fighting game, and works great on via

You know you've had a bad day when you lock your computer, and you need bolt cutters to unlock it.

Its official.

I don't like Neuromancer enough to finish it.

It's hard to believe, but there are adults now that weren't even alive when 9/11 occured

Our Kindergarten had a formal meeting about returning to in-person class with the parents.

I'm getting good vibes from the principal. I get a sense that she genuinely cares about the safety of her students and teachers.

Also the list of precautions and measures she outlined are, in my book at least, well thought out. The school seems as prepared as possible.

I fucking hate Daylight Saving Time.

Here in Arizona we have enough sense to not use it. However many websites insist that we do, causing scheduling nightmares.

I wish Testing/Sid kept up to speed with and better than they do. Debian sid is still running 5.17, even though upstream is 5.19

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as KDE, is in fact, the Plasma desktop environment. KDE is not a desktop environment unto itself, but rather a community that makes software, and the Plasma desktop is just another free component they produce.

Hot enough for ya?

Taken today in my wife's car. The car was in the shade...

One of my favorite podcasts, finished their main story, 12 years in the making.

In the USA we have a long weekend as Monday is labor day... TGIF!!!

My son's school had their school board meeting last night and the discussion was quite interesting.

Parents almost universally want their kids in person at school, despite the safety risks.

Teachers almost universally do NOT want kids in person at school until it is safe.

Locally, every school district that tries to force in person classes gets an ass whipping by the teachers, and very quickly backs down

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

US Christianity 

I would submit that religion is not incompatible with science.

But science IS incompatible with the peculiar American version of Christianity As Capitalism, the prosperity gospel, televangelists, and Christian Sharia Law.
