I'm just a guy in the #pnw who likes going on adventures, and playing games with friends.

Three things I love: the Oxford Comma, irony, and missed opportunities.

You're not alone. I tried reading them and the premise was something I could get behind but the way it was written drove me crazy. I agree that if they had a better translator to make it sound more native English, I probably would have been fine with it. Bit as it stands it sounded very Chinese still. I'm hoping the show will solve that problem for us.

Oregon Senate just passed that bill. Here's hoping.

Yeah, given my druthers I'd rather summer time, but that seems unlikely happen any time soon. So honestly, I'll be happy if we no longer have to change clocks twice a year regardless of which we align with.

That was my thought when they said X identified as conservative, Y liberal, the rest moderate or unsure.

How about none of the above since they're all right of center?

Because our whole government operates as if this still the 1800s and the only thing holding us together is the Pony Express.

If you want to dip your toes, go with something easy. Pop_os or Linux Mint are the two most often suggested. Lesser offered but with a Mac OS feel is Elementary.

Supreme Court to weigh whether Covid misinformation is protected speech (www.statnews.com)

As social media sites were flooded with misleading posts about vaccine safety, mask effectiveness, Covid-19’s origins and federal shutdowns, Biden officials urged platforms to pull down posts, delete accounts, and amplify correct information....

I think your answer also explains why they're so angry about white people no longer being the majority. They're scared they'll be treated how they've been treating everyone else.

Why hasn't anyone brought back an e-ink watch? Best watch ever.

Oh man, I clicked that link really hoping you were going to link to a Dyson Sphere.

That's why I loved StumbleUpon when it first came out. I discovered so many cool niche things that way.

And then we block that instance! Or it gets defederated.

Welcome! Don't be surprised if you feel the need to try out all the distros!

I didn't know about showly and gave it a try, syncing it to trak.tv. What does this get me that I don't get through trakt.tv by itself? What am I missing?

themadcodger,

Yeah, I was doing pretty much all that with trakt already, but wasn't sure if I was missing anything. I do like the ability to hide shows though.

I feel like these people could read and understand the Satanic Temples tenets and still try to blow something up.

Except "woman, man, person, TV, camera" isn't in the Bible, so he was all out of space to learn anything else.

Same when I was living in Spain. It was so quick and easy, I almost never needed assistance. There was a noticeable difference when ingot back to the States.

Looking to make the switch

Hi everyone, looking to make the switch from windows. I’m reasonably technically apt but not a programmer by any means. I’ve been doing some homework on which distro I would like to use and pop_os kinda feels like the right direction. I’m running an Nvidia 3060TI on a Ryzen 5600 chip set on an Asus tuf motherboard. Any...

Pop_os is a good choice. It's a solid distro and a good introduction to Linux. You can distro hop later, start with something easy for now. I installed it as a dual boot in case I needed Windows for something, but this is the first distro I haven't felt the need to switch back.

But that might hurt the feelings of the sacred demographic: old white men!
