My credentials include literally setting a storage cluster on fire via unsecured network equipment.

If I set my water heater hotter I can take longer showers right? I am new at this adulting stuff.

I seriously do not get what wikipedia's problem is, but I know ublock origin solves it.

The idea of "protestware" or that "software isn't supposed to have an opinion" or that open source is supposed to be somehow neutral, merely "getting the job done".

This was never true, even in the olden days. Even back then, there were protest aspects to software and things were written with an agenda. PGP had an agenda. p2p software in the 2000s had an agenda which even turned into a political party. Creative Commons had an agenda. Cryptocurrency definitely came with an agenda explicitly embedded in the code.

Job interviewer: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Me: I would say my biggest weakness is listening.

WTF is this? This iso won't burn. The disc says DVD+RW DL. The drive says DVD+R DL. Is this not good enough??

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer with a slow Internet connection to see who they really are.

I've never installed windows ME before. Well, first time for everything I guess.

Why users hate Snaps.

1. Slow execution and slow system boot.
2. Full proprietary backend.
3. You can't host your own Snap server.
4. Canonical is overriding direct apt(8) commands.
5. Forced updates.
6. Litters lsblk(8), df(1), mount(8) output.

War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery. RAID is Backup. SMS is 2FA. Ketchup is Vegetable.

Theres a floating point exception in this function in the code and it's popping out to say fuck you. *fuck you, repeated in harmony*
