ended up using bluetooth hotspotted to my phone to install the wireless driver and it immediately connected to my wifi like it remembered the password from the liveusb and everything.
silly stuff :(
So I just freshly installed Ubuntu 20.04 on my Dell XPS 13 9343 and my wireless driver (BCM4352) isn't installed, here's the best thing, I can install the wireless driver on the liveusb but can't once Ubuntu is actually installed because it complains that it's offline.
It's offline because I can't install the wireless driver?!
I can't believe this, I ticked the boxes to install 3rd party software as well, I just don't understand.
Inspired by @Gina , couldn't find the right ingredients so I improvised: bananas, müsli, cinnamon and Mørk Syrup (Molasses? Not sure what it is, but I like it)
Does anyone know if are there any blogs (or people on Mastodon) talking about Ubuntu Snaps? I know everyone loves to hate them, but they are now the slowest part of my system. It takes longer for vlc to open than Firefox does and Firefox does a hell of a lot more.
It'd be good to know what progress Canonical are making on making Snaps a lot faster.
This kind of batshit assholery is why we need journalism. The rich and powerful have never liked accountability. They always see themselves as the victims.
In all honesty, I despise the VCs who apparently think they are experts on everything, and are entitled to an audience, just because they get to play dollhouse with other people's money.
The sad part is the sheer size of the mob of blind defenders of these thought leaders.

I was just thinking that my next laptop would definitely have a #Ryzen processor.
Also, I would really like to have a #Coreboot.
Or maybe it's worth looking at the less popular manufacturers?
Yay, finally managed to cancel my monthly donaton to my previous Mastodon instance I no longer use. Now I can donate to #Fosstodon instead!
Anyone notice the adverts at the top of my site over the last month?
