here have a laugh everyone 😄
I'm guessing there is no way to recover a ring.cx account if I never exported it or no longer have it installed on any of my devices?
I think my favorite thing about mastodon is it does feel a lot like how The Internet™ was like 10 years ago whenever I'm here. Not sure why.
so long since I've rebooted these Brocade VDX switches, forgot they take a good 10+ minutes to boot

My favourite distros have all been Debian based until recently. Crunchbang. ElementaryOS. Ubuntu.
I think over the next year I’m probably going to become the most impossible Fedora fanboy.
I plugged in a thunderbolt eGPU and it just works. Wacom tablet, just works. Touchpad, touchscreen, wifi, mouse just works. External monitor with display scaling, perfect (only one or two glitches prior to rebooting with the display plugged in).
Install go and syncthing... all my stuff just turned up.

This is a great example of why social media posts should have an expiry or become private after a period of time.
People change, or their circumstances do. The internet allows the stupid shit you did or wrote to ruin your future a lot more easily than ever
Apparently you can use FB messenger without a profile and just register with a phone number, I must say I am tempted to put that toe back in the water, as messenger was pretty much the only feature I used.
They already have my digits as I still maintain a whatsapp presence... hmm
Oh my gosh, there's actually a PeerTube instance called betamax.video. o.O
Any keyboard recommendations? Preferably back lit.
My Roccat gaming keyboard is dying (buttons no longer working).
I'm not married to gaming keyboards, I just got it because it was backlit and on sale.
I've dropped back to an old apple aluminium keyboard for now but its missing a key and that simple fact is driving me insane.
Tech Support Horror Story time! Lay them on me and the best will be put into the podcast!
This is the second time I field for stories, so if you responded last time, pick a different one ;)
Kind of impressed with Kubuntu so far.
I have only had to install KeePassXC, and mount my Windows partition in fstab to get at files like my .kbdx.
I also found I can remove the titlebar per application (gone in Firefox yay for screen real-estate!) which is awesome.
I also set the screen for 1.6x to suit HiDPI, and I haven't had an issue yet.
Set DNS to use my PiHole.
Never used KDE before but so far it's been really simple to set everything up. I can find most things I need intuitively.

modern Windows needs some sort of verbose feedback mode. I realise they don't want to scare the end user with technical information, but when a user calls us because their machine has been updating for 45 minutes and just says to wait
Even if it was a hidden key combo (like F12) to bring it up, and said what update it was doing, or which files it was changing
Same goes for the first time log on, you used to be able to set verbose mode, "getting things ready" is not good enough
The root password to our VCSA server got screwed up yesterday and I fell back to an old work around that I was surprised still is a thing. Show more
During boot you simply edit the grub listing and add init=/bin/bash - this essentially redirects init (which runs as root) to execute a bash session. Then you can simply passwd the root pw. It works on any linux system.
Its true what they say. If you get physical access to a machine, you can own it.

Between wine and already MacOS and iOS games/apps using it, shouldn't Apple just implement a Vulkan driver for MacOS and iPhone.
