An English-speaker friend of mine expressing her frustrations with trying to learn languages with grammatical gender:

"English may be three languages in a trenchcoat going through other languages' pockets for spare grammar, but at least I don't have to try and remember whether those pockets are girl pockets or boy pockets."

Police are starting to turn those Ring doorbells into an always on surveillance network. So, if you have one you are now literally snitching on your neighbors to the state. Throw it away.

@mike hey mike. Random question I see that your icon in your name isn’t ubuntudde anymore. Wondering why you switched since I am trying out Ubuntudde now and looking for any possible future pain points.

@mike curious on your choice of what made you switch to it?

hey, #linux #hacker and all kinds of #sysadmin folks...

Do you still use (or want to use) Thinkpads as your go-to #laptop ? If so, which model would you recommend? If not, what would you use instead?

I've been adopting various kinds of laptops over the years, from Chromebooks to Dells to Macs, and I think maybe it's time just to have a normal laptop when I'm on the go. I'm thinking something serious, heavy, sturdy, wired Ethernet connection, USB 3s and Cs, etc..?

also, #debian over #Ubuntu ?

My new laptop is almost fully working after eight months.

@mike what is the emoji logo In your display name? I don’t recognize it.

@JoshStrobl loving @Solus. Very new to development but wanting to contibute. Any needs that a green dev (or non dev related) that is needed?
