I kinda wanna get a small little laptop for my Linux needs and reserve my desktop PC for gaming and such. I'm starting to get to a point where I gotta reboot once or twice a day to swap between :arch: and :windows:. I don't do anything heavy on Linux anyways, so all the extra horsepower on my PC doesn't really get used unless I'm playing something, which is usually on Windows.

PSA: All that "alpha" stuff you probably learned about how wolf packs work?

Complete, utter and total BS.

Wolves don't have an "alpha" leading everything and other wolves always vying for position attempting to take the alpha's place. No. Not at all.

Packs are just... families. That's literally /all there is to it/. A mother, a father, some kids. Wolves don't Obey the Leader™, it's just the ones leading the pack are... their parents. Like humans do.

My mirror had always been with me, I took it everywhere.

It kept me company and spoke many truths; how my hair was a mess, how my voice needed improving, how wonderful it would be if I was taller, fairer and more graceful.

So I wasn't lonely, if nothing else any loneliness made sense.

One day a witch who I admired took one hard look and snatched it from me.

"This mirror is cursed, not you."

And I learned what the truth really was.

@mike the funny thing about this too is that Windows is flat out buggy with regards to some hardware standards, but since they've got market dominance HW vendors start building to Windows' buggy implementation instead of the standard. So standards compliant OSes end up being overly buggy *for following the standard*.

under socialism we will all have the same size #ass and the same size #dick and #balls. do you want that????????????

QTractor + hydrogen with JACK feels pretty good so far. non-sequencer seemed interesting, but had issues keeping hydrogen in sync (unless hydrogen was master, which i didn't really want). the MIDI editing is way more practical than ardour, I get to use hydrogen's super intuitive drum programming, and I still have access to all my plugins. I'll have to see how well it holds up over the next few weeks.
