I didn't end up in Texas!

Something medical happened on the connecting flight from London, stopped in Glasgow to sort it out, ran out of time, turned back to London so now the airline is putting the passengers up in a hotel and shipping us off on random flights across tomorrow.

One of the coolest things real operating systems can do that Windows can't is change almost everything while running. I upgraded from Debian 9 to Debian 10 on the go, restarted my window manager and applications in place and now I have colour emoji and everything still works.

sci-fi idea: a text file is found on a server somewhere. just line after line of seemingly random 64-byte strings. but then someone finds that each string's sha1sum begins with 16 zeros, implying whoever made the file had an absolutely ludicrous amount of computing power. but who could've made it...

“Just install Linux on it” is the “just change the engine of your car” of tech.

Not everyone is a mechanic, not everyone wants to be a mechanic, and, if we want a world where freedom is the norm, we must stop expecting everyone to become a mechanic.

Note: this is not because these people are too dumb to be mechanics. It’s because they’re brain surgeons and space-shuttle pilots and they have three kids and they care for a loved one and they don’t have time to also be a mechanic.
