soooo... whoever thought that making people download games and mega updates (15GB +) was a good idea instead of physical disks was smoking crack. i have a slow connection. took me 3 hrs to update a game I just purchased 2/days ago and it was a 50+GB download.

So I have borked multiple installs on my new PineBook. I am trying to just modify a Q4OS install to simply 'be' Debian Testing. I don't think it's going to work.

Armbian won't even try too install and I'm a little nervous about modifying the source.list file since they upgraded to the 1080p screen since regular installs seem to have issues with this hardware.

Anyone have ideas?

so, my new pinebook arrived. it was upgraded to a 1080p ips panel.. absolutely gorgeous.

but, alas, I am too tired to play with it tonight as I just spent the last 36 hrs doing an emergency domain migration for a client. We just acquired this client and the previous IT guy didn't do any backups of the ONLY domain controller. Needless to say, a faulty UPS destroyed the PSU and both system drives. i had to rebuild AD and file server from scratch and migrate all users and shares to new domain

Winamp was a thing for you in the past?

Corporate media now bringing it back to the spotlight after a new release some time back.

BUT: Winamp is proprietary, never mind the memories;

ok, this is weird. im trying to figure out why, on Windows 10, that chrome cannot access the internet if the windows firewall is on. this is on the April Springs creators update. I use linux as my daily, but ran into this issue when working on a win 10 box. fresh install, too

Only have a couple of issues with the #pinebook so far.

I will probably release a preview image of #ManjaroARM for it within a couple of days.

I dont quite feel like its done yet. I have loads of issues still so.

May the memories of our Veterans be good ones, and our hearts are with those that have passed. Thanks to all the veterans who have done what I could not

One big benefit of a thinkpad is that there are so many out there that there are some really good deals to be had refurbished and used on ebay with a little patience.
