SchrodingersPat,

They have their place. I won’t yuck your yum.

SchrodingersPat,

I get your point. Garamond memes just don’t hit quite as hard.

SchrodingersPat,

Of course. And no worries. I know it’s a niche joke. Buckle up it’s a long one. Many public libraries, at least in the US, use the Dewey Decimal System (000-999) to organize their nonfiction books. The gist is that Mellville Dewey is problematic for many reasons, but for this example you have to know that when organizing books, Dewey’s best practice is that known hoaxes are categorized and shelved right along with the nonfiction books in the same category. For example the book 1421 claims that America was discovered by the Chinese in year 1421. This book is shelved right along the rest of American history in 945.05. However, the 000’s is the “contested knowledge” which has ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, etc. I feel that moving books like 1421 into 000s it lets librarians contextualize books by essentially saying “we think this book is as true as ghosts.”

SchrodingersPat,

Yes. I don’t remember the exact numbers but the early 000s deal with computers and the later 000 deal with hoaxes and forgeries

SchrodingersPat,

Fair. But “Lukewarm take” just doesn’t have the same punch.

SchrodingersPat,

Besides physical violence, the most absurd thing I’ve seen was a man who bought a car after his wife pleaded not to because it would bankrupt them. He didn’t like that she was “telling him what to do.” They had two perfectly fine vehicles btw.

SchrodingersPat,

Maybe try a game in a different genre than fantasy. That way you won’t constantly be comparing the system or your PC to Path Finder.

SchrodingersPat,

Sorry, different American

SchrodingersPat,

Jein?

SchrodingersPat,

From what I looked up it means something like dude or mate. It’s also used when expressing suprise? If native speaker has better insight I’d appreciate it.

SchrodingersPat,

Losing gives you a chance to practice being happy for someone else. Remember board games especially are an excuse for you and a bunch of people you like to sit at a table and do something fun. If you can’t find joy in simply playing a game, just take a moment to appreciate the joy and excitement of the people around you.

Who here uses a less popular Linux distribution? What made you choose it?

Hey fellow Linux enthusiasts! I’m curious to know if any of you use a less popular, obscure or exotic Linux distribution. What motivated you to choose that distribution over the more mainstream ones? I’d love to hear about your experiences and any unique features or benefits that drew you to your chosen distribution.

SchrodingersPat,

I use Void Linux. I switched from Arch btw because I liked their package manager, was curious about their init system runit, and still wanted a rolling release. I’ve used it for a little over a year now and overall I’ve been happy.
