Crazy how even the legends forget their origin story.

You were a newbie too, don't shit on the folks who are where you once were.

Wow these Top3Distro results are...interesting 🤔

I aim to release the full writeup (and the twist) sometime these week. Hopefully before Wednesday but no guarantees

cursing, more of it, windows related 

Goddamnit Windows you royal fuck.

So I found out that I have an extra 1gbps NIC laying around. I think I might set up my own router. Wonder if the spare Wifi PCI expansion can also be used as a WAP 🤔 Anyone have experience with this?

Sneak peak at the results of the Top 3 distro poll. Can anyone guess which distros actually got top three in all the results?

Note: The colors chosen are not mine

Been going through a bunch of apps with adb shell (as per @Twelve's suggestion) and my goodness do the Samsung devs not have clear ideas as to what their naming scheme should be. Thus far here are some of the beginnings of package names

com.samsung
vs
com.sec

com.*.app
vs
com.*.android.app

com.*.something
vs
com.*.someThing.Agent

A pain in the butt I tell ya!

Phew, through about half of the responses damn.

This data's gonna be hard to clean up in an efficient way. Might be worth retyping manually in the corrected formats

Thank you to everyone who contributed their input to the Top 3 distro poll!

I'm compiling the data now, and will see if I can present the findings by Monday morning in a blogpost @ bnolet.me/posts

MH, question 

For those who have intense anxiety, what helps you shake that off? What helps distract you from it? What helps you cope?

I'm looking for ideas to help my partner with. DMs very welcome

cursing, lots of it. 

Sad that I'll lose built-in VoIP capabilities...but that's a very minimal thing to give up for the peace of mind of a cleaner OS

cursing, lots of it. 

and here I was fucking wondering "how the hell do I have 177 apps on my phone?"

Well now we fucking know whyy, SAMSUNG!

I'll see if I can root this and remove some of those apps after backing up all my stuff. If it breaks, I'll just move to LineageOS, always on screen be damned.

There are 72 fucking apps from Samsung on my phone that I cannot remove. About 60 of those fucking apps are either duplicates of something I use a third-party app for or simply something I don't want to fucking use like Facebook or TikTok.

WHY ARE THESE ON MY PHONE? Samsung fuck, goddamn shit fuck.

boost this post so people can find me here thanks ily
