Question: I just got my first shot.
How can I SSH into the microchip
Bill Gates put in my arm? Does it only come in the second dose? Can I use mosh?

I just installed postmarket OS (plasma) on my pinebook pro and it is really snappy. @postmarketOS @PINE64

@fedops @braunne ideologues tend to alienate rather than convince, especially if they fall into the trap of being judgy and elitist. I’m more concerned with teaching kids how to be technically literate than I am trying to explain to the average 40 yo Joe or Jane why using Excel is bad. If we don’t teach the next generation how and why to understand, question, engage, and control algorithms, they’re going to be in real trouble.

There seem to be two general camps. Those who see microsoft and others as benevolent enablers that make your life easier and more reliable, and are willing to accept the occasional glitch as part of the price of admission. Go with the majority and you can't go wrong.

And those who hate to see non-free services seemingly selected by default; who wear themselves out lobbying against the monopolists. Whatever they propose is odd, and if something goes wrong it's their fault.

Blue pill, red pill.

I'm wondering about smartphone apps ... Why do they have to be so dumb ?

I've restored my Nextcloud instance and following that, reconnect the sync apps.

Desktop versions : click connect, authorized, done.

Android app : errrh .. Where is the "connect" button ? I've typed on my account name, nothing happens. Searching in menues, nothing significant. Oh ! a notification appears and says "could not connect, touch here" after 30sec.

Why is it so complicated to have usable apps on mobile ? 😑

So I'm watching my son watch some new children's show, in which potatoes waiting underground for harvest are performing a musical number about how much they want to be made into french fries.

Me: Wow, these potatoes are intense.

Reading the local timeline stopped being interesting due to all this pro-RMS vs anti-RMS bullshit.

Hypothetical question

You work for a company that provides you with a work laptop. It is not yours, just on loan.

After 3 years they make a proposition. You can buy the laptop for a reasonable price and it can be yours to do with as you please, or you give it back and they loan you a new laptop.

What would you do?

I finished reading cherub yesterday. That book series is absolutely amazing!

First time dealing with integrated amdgpu on linux. Everything looks ugly (fonts, icons, colors), I've already edit the xorg.conf files and the results doesn't change.

Does anyone has some guide to solve that?

Random useless but fun post. 

I, loooooove pizza!

I haven't tooted in a while, but I have some snowLeopard related things to report.
I've been working on slipstreaming NVIDIA drivers from mountain lion.
Fixed all the kext errors that appeared in the kernel panic, and now I get no panic and no voice over. Possible solutions are:
1: It actually boots but VO doesn't output through internal speakers in my Mac Pro, or
2: I have another issue that I can't trace alone because no panic logs and no sight equal to no way of knowing what's up.
