This is why I prefer linux.
1. Get BSOD when trying to export an email to pdf.
2. Find that Microsoft claims to have addressed this in KB5000802
3. Find out that apparently it's already installed.
4. Find out Windows still has an undesirable behavior.

In situations like these, I miss my mechanical keyboard at home.

I apologise for sharing a YouTube link, but the message is apt. Do not insert unknown USB thumbdrives into your computer.

I have switched from MX Cherry Brown to Kailh Box Brown. To be honest, they do feel better.

Just a word of warning on a friday:

Don't use LastPass.

Some years ago they even got hacked. LastPass is just not a good solution.

Why not try an open-source alternatve like KeePass?

I would wish Canonical could do better with snap. Compared to flatpak it is... Inferior. System re lots hanging because the daemon can't exit... Sigh.

Do you remember when Facebook bought WhatsApp and they told us that WhatsApp won't be sharing any data with Facebook?

"WhatsApp Will Delete Your Account If You Don't Agree Sharing Data With Facebook"

Happy new year everyone! I hope that 2021 turns out to be a better year than the last one.

Do people still talk about the Macs?

If so it's worth stating that Apple for years have sabotaged the performance of the Intel chips. Beginning from the slimming Macbook Pro Retina models thermal throttling, overheating etc.
That their M1 performs well, is only compared to butchered Intel chips.

In the end I wouldn't trust Apple. This behaviour and bypassing firewall and VPN settings is just plain evil. But most people won't care and they get away with it - again.
