Pinned toot

I watched a video on youtube the other day about Nostalgia Critic and his "review" of The Wall.

It was an interesting video, but more important it has me thinking about The Wall again.

Gonna move on the direction of abandoning Twitter, and hopefully post here more often.

After watching Lindsey Ellis' "mask off" video yesterday, I'm reasonably convinced that Twitter is just bad and that I don't need to be really On It anymore.

SFW: Caphs and details! 

A wonderful piece by Jay, who helped us polish up a neat look at the Caphrinica! Trying to capture the basics of Caph as critters and their 'essence' as individuals; I think it came out lovely! (🎨 twitter.com/JayRock5858 )

What do you do when you already have the ability to deploy bare metal, but the product you want to install insists that IT deploys the bare metal for you?

Desktop Computing, Ubuntu, and general technological frustration 

Not gonna lie, I'm honestly glad that this is all done now. It's always refreshing to compute with a freshly installed operating system. Everything is nice and snappy.

The key frustration was mostly me trying to use Ubuntu 20.04, which uses much newer linux kernels that - apparently - take a huge shit whenever you've got multiple graphics cards. XD

@reflectivedragon This has actually been a habit of mine for a long time. Install the operating system on an SSD, and then use a spinning disk to store my actual home directory stuff.

This time, both my OS and home directory stuff are on SSDs, so nice.

And they're both encrypted, so also nice.

Desktop Computing, Ubuntu, and general technological frustration 

After much frustration and effort, I finally got my computer "rebuilt."

@reflectivedragon insisted that I encrypt my hard drives. I decided to buy a couple new 1TB SSDs, reinstall the operating system on one, and use the other to store data like Music and Videos and Documents and what not.

Spent most of my day finding out that Ubuntu 20.04 is not ready for prime time.
