There is this one class that I have no idea about anything we are learning. I think I can at least pass it if we stay online only, but it looks like we might return to the classrooms soon enough.

That means I will probably actually learn some stuff, but at the same time, I will probably not pass the class oof.

I have never felt like I deserved any of my kinda high grades since the pandemic started, but I dont want to fail either once the school makes the change.

I'll have to wait and see, ig

I don't get the price of mechanical keyboards, I don't know if I am just poor or if people actually think their price is fair

My typing speed is all messed up today heeeelp

I'm doomed, I am going back to presential classes next month! :blobcatderpy:

I usually complain when classes are 3 continuous hours long, but if they are going to be, I wish they used the time wisely, quite a lot of my math classes only gave less than 2 hours a week. And I got a feeling that such class could've prepared me better for what I am learning now

Its honestly quite horrifying, the first topic we saw when the semester started was almost alien to me, its as if there was a whole previous semester that should've prepared me for it, however, the classes I got weren't enough

I don't feel so good.

I was taking too long to write this, so I just pushed it out. Unfinished thoughts on why it is so hard to change account information and my migration away from gmail. You decide what the standard should look like and more importantly, why we don't have one:

If you want here is my tech tip: Just as you should keep regular backups of your data, make sure you have backup peripherals. An extra cheap keyboard and mouse to help tide you over until a replacement arrives has saved my bacon more times than I'd like to admit

Dude! There's even a GameBoy emulator plugin available for !

Albeit come to think of it the controls are probably pretty bad given the iPod only has 5 (practical) buttons

Do you have a special trick to deal with those common situations:

1๏ธโƒฃ You are reading a very long article without headlines in the browser and you have to stop.

2๏ธโƒฃ Alternatively, you are watching a long video on YouTube and have to stop.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Next time you continue, you have to find the position you stopped, manually.

โ“ Of course you could take a note in some way and use that, but in the digital world there should be smarter solutions. Do you know any?

Its kinda sad, but being integrated into is kinda epic for basic school work without having to give away my phone number.

I mean, if we already have school email addresses shown in Google Classroom, I might as well don't care about the of just chatting about the teamwork we have to do.

I noticed that some apps were extremely slow to start.
Inkscape was taking 30 seconds (I counted)
Same with transmission.
And the keyring prompt was not showing up fast enough, at least not gnome's, which is the only one that exists it seems (idk, give suggestions)
All of this happened because I am now using startx and it seems a lot of programs don't like that.

I added this to xinitrc to fix it.

Now I do have to make a web server on my for school and I am still unable to open the ports properly.

Is there any other way to make a server without port forwarding?

I never have mobile data what is this hidden power???

Not bad for an engineering student in its 7th semester, right? :blobcatderpy:

Well I may or may not have burned like 4 LEDs, but at least now I understand you should not plug the power without having the ground connected first...
