We can fill the holes back in once they're all in there.

Those are LCDs at OLED prices. It's almost double what an equivalent smart TV is.

I thought Web 2.0 was just dynamic Javascript and AJAX, as a step up from static webpages of the 90s. Am I missing something here?

I've been sitting here trying to make it forget that system prompt and give it a new one lol.

All my fellow edgy 90s goth/headbanger friends: "He called it 'Nine Inch Nails' because that was the size of the nails that were used to nail Jesus to the cross"

Then watching an interview with Trent in a documentary 20 years later: "I just thought it sounded cool at the time".

Unpopular opinion: I think "Hurt" itself is overrated, and everyone just likes it because it happened to become one of the hit songs off the Downward Spiral. I think songs like Mr. Self Destruct and Eraser are what you really want if you want a display of raw, fucked up emotions.

Remember the famous meme scene in Skyrim where you wake up for the first time?

Debian is the horse and cart you don't even pay attention to but faithfully and reliably carries you where you need to go. It may be old, but its careful and safe and won't harm you.

Arch is just an angry pissed off dragon. Very powerful. Good luck taming it.

a valuable and required skill for any future job - basic Windows and Office usage.

Not everybody is a data-entry drone. I have no use for it, and I have a technical career.

There's nothing that anyone can do in 2024 in the MS Office suite of applications specifically that I can't find a third party or cloud equivalent of to do the exact same thing.

Don't you love freezing when you go to bed, waking up in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat, and then several hours later freezing again?

Dude I worked for in 2008 (small IT support company) insisted we store all the domain logins and passwords for all our customer's networks on our internal Sharepoint system and forward a port to RDP on all their domain controllers. It was a fucked up place to work with every procedure pulled out of someone's ass on the spot.

Also who the hell thinks it is a good idea to send nudes to Meta?

It was eye-opening when I realized I'm the only one in my circle who gives a shit about online privacy. You and me and most of the Fediverse are a rare minority. This is normal to people now. If you told people in the 90s about this they'd rightfully call it a dystopia. I remember my mother being super paranoid about me going online back then. Boiling frog situation here.

Me, not much of a gamer and not a movie buff and having no issues with the way monitors have been displaying things for the past 25 years: No.

When I could no longer see the migraine-inducing flicker while being irradiated by a particle accelerator shooting a phosphor coated screen in front of my face, I was good to go.

It was exciting when we went from green/amber to color!

That's the entire point. To keep a boot on you and prevent you from being successful in life in any way. Success is for a small minority of people in the "club" that none of us are in.

If you're European, please take back the Puritans. We've had just about enough of them here.

Yeah, you only have to look at these once. Absolutely no point except eye-candy for a fleeting moment.
.I don't even care for graphical boots. Give me all the boot messages scrolling by.

And here I naively thought 25 years ago that the internet was going to remove barriers and borders. Instead we're working on walling ourselves off even more from each other.

I have nothing against anybody from Russia or China or wherever and I'd wish my government would stop trying to nanny me about it just because they have beef with another government. Leave me the hell out of it.

C is too busy trying to figure out where all these dangling pointers are supposed to point to and reading past the end of its buffers.
