@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".

Fighting games, sexual assault allegations 

No offense meant for victims of these allegations.

But what the fuck happened to the fighting game community?!

This community ain't supposed to have sexual assault allegations and shit like that. If I wanted that I would look at real sports.

But nooOOOOOooo, y'all had to ruin it for everyone else by acting like dicks.

Just another thing to oh-so-fondly remember 2020 for, the death of competitive fighting game communities.

Does anyone have experience using Classroom with ?

My son is going to be expected to use it for Kindergarten. Need to know if I can get away with buying him a Linux laptop, or if I will be forced into a chromebook of some sort.

When I was a student a car ran over my only optical mouse (don't ask). I made this cobbled together mess from the pieces and used it for quite some time afterwards because I couldn't afford a new one at the time

I met a Chinese trans woman yesterday, and her opinion on China's social credit system was "It's not a problem if you're not doing anything wrong".

When I asked what she thought about journalists being given a low score due to reporting on politicians, she said "It's not really a problem, since we have a one-party policy anyway".

Fucking terrifying.

Controversy 

Massachusetts towns to recognize polyamorous relationships, though not polygamy itself.

Is this a sign of things to come? 🤔

Covid19, schools 

Me and my wife are NOT prepared to keep him focused on his education at home while he is doing online school, not when I also work full time and we have a toddler that also needs our undivided attention.

At least me and my wife have the luxury of only needing one income, and no day care.

I can only imagine how bad it is for other parents right now.

Covid19, schools 

My son is going to be in for a bad time starting kindergarten in a month

No in person school for the first two weeks of class, it will be all online at first.

When he does set foot on campus for the first time, he will likely be corralled, as opposed to simply herded, missing out on a lot of early childhood experiences.

Who knows how this will impact him over time.

default software store now has a "Restart required" notification!

Conventional wisdom: "If you ain't broke, don't fix that."
Me: "My bank balance has too many digits. I should do something about that..."

My son has taken to calling our glorious leader Donald Trunk.

I think I like that better anyway 🤣

covid-19, relating to school memories 

Remember school where sometimes the teacher would let folks out early if they were extra good and quiet?

And remember there was always one kid that ruined it for everyone and you were stuck for those extra 10-15 minutes?

Yeah, those kids are the jackasses that can't be fucked to stay home and put in their fucking masks when they go out.

Seriously, stop ruining it for the rest of the class you jerks.

I gotta hand it to .

They have always had speedy turn around times for repairs, whether the hardware is in warranty or out of warranty.

Sent in a Switch Pro controller for out-of-warranty repairs, and two Joycons for joycon-drift issues. Turn around time was swift.

So it turns out that Pop!_OS is a better than Ubuntu proper, if only because their default store actually lets you install debs.

Bonus points for supporting flatpaks in their default store.

The theming still drives me crazy though, I'm just not that big a fan of the font choice and colors, but i can tweak that easily enough.
