If anyone wants to go with me to see Bauhaus in Portland tonight, please let me know within the next hour or so! 🙂 I have an extra ticket.

Google Android needs to provide an option to default to no notifications whatsoever. This seems like a basic thing. It’s very ergonomic. #HumanIT

It seems so obvious but the feature has been lacking for decades now. In fact it might have been there before but they probably took it away. One of those nasty regressions.

I would like my phone, by default, to do nothing. But that seems to be practically impossible to do. Wait for me to say, ” Hey! I want to know when my friends are calling me!”

I’m not done with this article yet. 🙂 I have MUCH to say about this subject and it is long overdue.

So much time has been wasted trying to get *nix things to work with Windows.

This fact is further evidence of our (USA) society’s collapse. 🙂 The fact that managers and employees tolerate this kind of situation/environment demonstrates how stupid the American workforce is. Efficiency is not only neglected but eschewed, frowned upon. Just like when people say they have no time to write documentation. The same old lament that is supposed to illustrate how super-productive the team is and would otherwise be hindered by having to write meaningful documentation on what they are creating so that their successors won’t want to kill themselves. 🙂

Just pick an operating system! 🙂 And if it sucks, well, that’s your fault for picking the wrong operating system. But don’t pretend that you can have a stable environment when your servers are running GNU/*nix but the entirety of your software ecosystem otherwise is based on the retarded Microsoft Windows/365/??? platform.

I think I have finally deciphered the universe’s hint that I should make this an interview question that I ask my prospective hirer; Do you have any Microsoft products in your infrastructure? If the answer is yes then I will politely exit the interview. Because this is fucking ridiculous. :-)))))))

Thank you for reading. <3

Some tips on speeding up Windows 10

I don’t know how much this stuff actually helps. I’d like to see some benchmarks. Does anyone benchmark this stuff, these kinds of tweaks?

Anyway, my work laptop is RAM-bound, apparently, and I’m trying to squeeze as much performance out of this thing as possible. Combine that situation with a corporate VPN (Cisco sucks.) and McAfee BS, you got a slowed-down PC. By design. Which is torturous. 🙂 To know that this is stuff that can be prevented and actual human beings choose not to do so is frustrating and makes me want to switch jobs.

I’m trying out Budgie Desktop from the Solus Linux distribution and am liking it a lot. :-)

First impressions, of course, but man. It’s nice to see something like this in the Linux ecosystem. When I get my new work set-up going I would like to try out Solus itself. I’m currently running Xubuntu on a System76 Galago Pro laptop PC.

Ansible troubleshooting – not a valid attribute for a Play error

Thanks to this guy and his video. I was using “task” singular instead of “tasks” plural. I think it was a copy-and-paste error on my part and it was driving me nuts. (I’m just getting back into Ansible after a long time.)
