I've just realised that the first distro I used was Hardy (8.04). That means I've now been a Linux user for an entire decade.

I've been reading up on this Google Duplex thing, and maybe I'm just weird. There seems to be a whole lot of people that think an AI making a phone call should have to announce itself as an AI. I disagree, and further I would be annoyed if it did. IF I were to use Google Duplex for any reason, I don't want my personal use of this product to turn into an advertisement for Google. It's to accomplish a task, not be Google advertising that I'M paying for. I'd love to hear opposing viewpoints.

I'm kind of annoyed by this even though I don't use Nautilus and I can't remember the last time I did that.


OK news media, I get it that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married. Good for them. Do I really need to get a play by play of what her dad is doing today? Seriously? I'm not even English.
