@sharow My primary computer is win10, but this looks promising. Thank you!

Trying to image a NAS drive (the first of 2 in a JBOD, the second of which died). I know total recovery is out of the question, but I want to image the non-bad drive before I format & redo the whole thing as a RAID 1

“thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"”

On being yourself 

@Gina Sounds like someone that's never had self-esteem, self-worth or depression/anxiety issues?

Speaking as someone who HAS all of those things, motivating oneself is (in most cases) much more complex than a lack of inspiration. 🤷‍♂️
