How can people call themselves “computer enthusiasts” when they are unwelcoming to any opportunity to tinker and learn? The whole point of being a computer guy is to break things and then fix them; that’s how you grow your knowledge!
Smh Linus Tech Tips really do be a disgrace to the tech community.
I literally just poured my heart and soul into writing a reflection for school. I would say it was roughly 500 words.
Since it was for school, I was forced to use Microsoft Planner. I wrote it, I saved it...
I can't even remember how long it's been since I started teasing it, but I've FINALLY finished rewriting my site!
It took a few tries, but I've finally made something that I'm happy with, AND THE FULL SITE IS 6KB!

Okay I’ve been through quite a lot of crap today and yesterday.
I bought a soldering iron, I bought a GPIO header, I soldered them together. BUT, THEN THE PI DIED. I thought that I had burned the PCB to a crisp.
Well, I had forgotten that just prior to soldering, I had rewritten the SD card for the Pi using dd instead of Etcher. Since dd has issues sometimes, the Pi couldn’t boot from the SD, appearing to be dead. BUT NOW I’VE REWRITTEN THE MEDIA AND IT WORKS!
My server may or may not have suffered a potentially catastrophic fall from a high shelf. Luckily, it still works!
I’m just sad that I lost a roughly hundred day uptime😔
I still have to check to make sure that the SSD I had hooked up still works.
Other than that, I’m just trying to survive with 40 degree weather!
I bought a lot of laptops the other day. I’ll give more information soon, but among the lot was an original 15” MacBook Pro!
I’ll install Linux on here soon, but I’m just such a vintage Apple nut that I couldn’t help but install Mac OS X on here as well!
Forgive me, Father Torvalds, for I have sinned, but old Macs are just SO DAMN SEXY!!!
BTW, this cost me less than $10.
Oh never mind lol.
I'm a Canadian Linux enthusiast and FOSS advocate, and I hope to learn something new today!
