Stop saying RSS is dead people. I'm literally using it to read your shitty article about how it's dead

@d4klutz I tried removing the Mellanox NIC earlier in the week but the machine still crashed. I ended up patching again and I guess that fixed my crashing issues - it's been almost three days since it last crashed, which is up from about 10 hours.

Hi. I'm Duder963. I'm an aspiring 3D animator, voice actor, programmer, and musician who hasn't done anything to actually learn that stuff.

As for stuff I actually do. I game and watch anime way more than i should. I'm also run Linux on both my desktop and laptop (btw i run arch). People also say I sing good

Doctor: I'm terribly sorry but the tests are back. Your child is artistic.

Parents: (sob)

Doctor: Now don't worry, it's not the end of the world. Your child will never have the mind of an executive, but with modern innovations like Etsy, Patreon and Kickstarter, they may be able to pay rent well into their mid-20s.

Parent: Did... did crayons do this

Doctor: Who can say? We're exposed to so many forms of art every day: music, poetry, language, geometry..

Parent: We're getting crayons BANNED

No matter what I try, I always come back to #elementaryOS. I just can't get away from it :/

@codesections Laziness is not necessarily bad. It's the part of us that drives to invent things that make our lives easier. We just need to learn to overcome its negative aspects.

I installed Manjaro on my gaming desktop (it hasn't had a working Linux install for a while) and man this went by really quickly! It was such a breeze to install and I've had no issues with the NVIDIA graphics driver or anything.

I'm really impressed with Manjaro. I have no complaints thus far

“Password cannot have more than 32 characters” — Apple Developer Center, September 2018.

I have a hard-drive dock that looked a bit dull, so I repainted it as DisembAudio, the toaster-shaped, robot-voiced mascot of RiffTrax. Now my data can sync in style.

"Google wants to kill the URL"


"People have a really hard time understanding URLs" is not a good enough reason to get rid of URLs

To this day, I refuse to use an AMP specific webpage as it breaks the open web. When I'm presented with an AMP link, I edit the URL to remove that component so I get the full page. "Safe" URLs will similarly cater to Google interests and I will not be using it

If other vendors go along with this, I'll write my own browser if I have to

removing the headphone jack is easily the most annoying “technological advancement” we’ve made

Three years ago today, @letsencrypt issued its first HTTPS certificate in its mission to encrypt the web.
380 million certificates later, it's one of the largest certificate issuers in the world.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

It is so fascinating to me how we will put up with a lot and without complaint when we know that a better way doesn't exist. In short time the things we happily endured become the source of endless bellyaching.

Not long ago: Holy moly this is incredible that I can access all this information over a phone line at 56K!
Now: This stupid MFing gif is taking too long to download on my stupid powerful wireless computer that fits in my pocket!

If you appreciate and enjoy the small things, your life will improve significantly.

I'm at my wit's end here. I have two Ubuntu KVM servers setup in my server closet and one of them keeps crashing with clock watchdog timeout errors. Both are running the same hardware - Ryzen 1700, 32GB Crucial Ballistix RAM, ASUS B350M-A mATX motherboard - are at the same Ubuntu 18.04 patch set and I updated their BIOS at the same time.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm hoping it's not bad hardware
