Rant about MS Windows. 

Windows is so f*ing bad it's insane.

β†’10-year-old laptop + HDD + Linux = usable within a minute.
β†’10-year-old laptop + SSD + Windows 10 = unusable within five to ten minutes.

Goddamnit sucks.

I haven't played in days and that's perfectly alright.

Just set up an old laptop with and to be the new server of the home. It performs better with this setup and uses less resources than when it was running with Jellyfin installed as an application.

Have I mentioned at all how much I love lately?

The more I use , the more I appreciate it for its simplicity. It is intuitive and concise.

Goodbye, . The updates were always love/hate.

I just saw Top Gun for the first time. I remember back in 1986, I was late for a friend's birthday party and didn't join him and others when they left to see it in the theater. Since then, this film remained unwatched.

I would like to say the is better than . It also is lightweight, has a faster package manager, has a concise wiki, and good community support.

I had an appointment today for 2:45 at an Urgent Care center. It is now 4:00 and the doctor has yet to see me. I live in the US and this is all in-network of my insurance company.

What if we had Urgent Care IT Support that took their sweet time, yet charged you grossly inflated prices. Oh wait...
