Ok I have given up trying to do a bare metal install of #OpenBSD on this laptop. Cant get the trackpad to work and a usb mouse is spotty at best.
Using it in a VM for the time being...
My 3 girls who don't like conventional sports took to archery, knife throwing and axe throwing today. Plus my 8 year old went off a cliff on a giant swing as well as the zipline while teenage boys were crying to get off... #prouddad
I've been using Linux for 18 years. Indeed the purity argument is as old as Linux itself. But the truth is, purity doesn't get the job done for everyone. Sometimes we have to compromise to get the perfect environment that works for each of us. Remember that Linux gives us freedom of choice. We have the FREEDOM to build the environment we want, not the one that's expected by the elitists. Software FREEDOM not software communism. If you don't like something, use something else. CHOOSE.
My kids and their friends have shown interest in Linux and other open source tech since I began my career change about 12 months ago.
And so in the spirit of what Dasgeek has been doing with his local linux group, we have decided to start a small replica for my kids and friends in our area.
The talented and awesome @ohyran made this awesome avatar/logo/mascot for our little group. Thanks Jens!
So today was a busy day with lots of med appointments for the kids and parent failures on my part
1. Trying to teach my youngest to be more independent and got her to dress herself today. After being out of the house for four hours, I noticed this about her pants
2. At the childrens hospital, got guilt tripped by a nurse because my other two were playing on ipads in the waiting room. Not because I left them alone but because they were on the ipads. Lots of signs about screen time
