ME: Why is everyone using Docker?

Also ME when seeing software install instructions for a distro I am forced to use:

Maybe I should just install @yunohost

I have not got out on the bike much. 😔 So my activity has been mostly dog walks. We even had a play date watching a friend's dog. Lots of walkies.

One weekend my partner wanted to try to ride her bike (first time since her accident last year), so I put pup in the #k9sportsack and went to the market.

No more hiding, back on the bike for a good cause. Donate to https://cmha.donordrive.com/participant/4194 and help others like me. #RideDontHideYEG #RideDontHide #yegbike #yegwalk #MentalWellness #MentalHealth

So thankful for all the hard work over at @ArchLabsLinux I have had very few issues in the last several years.

I just tried to install @ManjaroARM and had nothing but trouble. Likely related to the ARM hardware of the RPi.

I guess I'll do the official RPi OS. I just wanted to stay in arch where I am comfortable with pacman. I guess this old man has to learn more commands.

I need to sit down.

A client said 'make the logo smaller?'

When someone tells you to have a positive attitude and to stop being negative.

I am going to start paying bills and subscriptions in elaborate ways and make corporations try to figure it out.
This payment includes a $75 bonus! Of course, transaction fees are $20, my time it took to pay you- $50, the lawyer who helped create this plan charges $300.
My $25 bill is now minus the aforementioned fees means you owe me $200.

I was impressed by Koodo Mobile because of their "Tab" system. Coming from the US, I liked that the price of the device wasn't hidden in the bill. Each month a portion was paid off and when I finished paying it, my phone bill would be cheaper.

Now, their "Tab" system is a form of obfuscation. Use this tab and get $300 off the phone and only pay $10 a month for 2yrs for the device. Use this tab, pay $300 upfront, get $60 off the phone and pay $10 for 2yrs. WHAT?

As much as I have started feeling frustrated with Patreon, I do have to say Jack Conte's Scary Pockets is fun.

I am living some sort of nightmare with my laptop.

I jumped into the Windows side to do some work in Adobe and there were some updates to the BIOS and Intel Management Engine.

I didn't notice until a few days later that my laptop stopped charging. I figured out how to get it to charge again thanks to the web, but the updates are all I can think that would have caused this.

Now, in linux, my WiFi just quit with no reason. I restarted and it was still down. Eventually re-enabled it.

Two nights of actual sleep.
I still feel exhausted. I want to celebrate the victory of 2 nights, but I am afraid it is a fluke and I'll just let myself down again.

ddrescue ran for 2 hours before I realized that I really didn't need the whole drive. I just want a folder. Aborted. Pointed to folder and pissed off ddrescue, I guess.

Assuming the drive survives, I can try to get the whole thing again, maybe.

Attempting testdisk first because living on the wild side accessing a failing hard drive is my kink😜

What if I am staying up late because it is the only time I can really be me and not who I think everyone wants me to be?

Hey Linux friends, a little help?

I have a hard drive full of music. I thought it failed, but if you leave something alone for long enough gremlins fix them. So it works (so far.)

What is the most efficient way to copy files to another drive?

I have typically been lazy and used gui environments like Thunar. I feel like people have tried to convince me rsync is better.

What is your advice? I want to get the music from the drive before it remembers it died.

In today's world of marketing, spam, and data collection I would rather send someone nudes than my address.

What if trees communicate with dogs through scent?

TREE: Hey, could you drop some fertilizer here?

DOG: 💩

ME: I'll just pick that up.

TREE: Fucking humans.

or

TREE: Hey, These weeds are bothering me, think you can help?

DOG: *pees on plant*
