I guess it would either work like a subscription fee or a one time fee per swap

Damn. Yeah a close friend I know has been taking me to the gym whenever he's free so it's nice to get out with him every once in a while. Gym guys are pretty nice.

We already give a fuck ton of money to healthcare, even more than we give to the defense budget. The problem is that too much of our money goes to lobbying, pharma companies, medical companies, hospital Administrators, and other greedy fucks. We pay health insurance and most of the time they try to screw us over. What we need is paying for stuff that will actually go directly to us. Throwing as much money as possible doesn't help, we need to make sure that the money goes where we want it to go.

Thompson was known for his lifelong use of alcohol and illegal drugs, his love of firearms, and his iconoclastic contempt for authority. He often remarked: "I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."[3] Thompson died by suicide at the age of 67, following a series of health problems. Hari Kunzru wrote, "The true voice of Thompson is revealed to be that of American moralist ... one who often makes himself ugly to expose the ugliness he sees around him."[4]

Nah it's fine. I like to get the latest kde updates.

Which is kinda why I like waiting a little but that doesn't really matter because it's always rolling. Guess I'm just delaying having to fix my system. So I update whenever I'm not busy with my life.

It's fine though, I know what I signed up for. I used Ubuntu for a year before moving over to Arch and and I quite like it. Everytime I decide to update though, I try to do so when I am not busy during school, and prepare for the worse when I do plan to update.

I was expecting the video to be like 20 min long but it was actually very short. I don't know how I feel about it but I am a follower of this channel now.

Had to look this up. So you climb up stuff to get radio data or what does that entail? Why do they call you "bomber"?

Sick. I have so many issues with my 3d printer printing petg. Such a pain in the ass.

Some places skirt by the law and dump it where hazardous waste doesn't belong. This is done legally but is not at all safe.

Arch. Just updated a few days ago, got some java conflict stuff. Jdm jre or some kind of error. Had to read what people online did to fix that.

Edit: lmao why am I being downvoted?

When SimpleLogin merged with Proton, proton unlimited members are able to use SimpleLogin premium for free. Is that the case for Standard Notes? I haven't figured out a way to do this.

I'm starting out with a cheap Mo Fang Ge brand cube but it's pretty stiff for my taste. I saw some videos about speedcubes and how you can adjust them and all that, thought it was neat. What are some good cubes out there? I would want to avoid any Chinese brand cubes if possible because cheap and Chinese probably means their workers aren't fairly compensated.

Edit: after much research, I don't think a non-chinese brand cube will be possible. So I guess recommend me whatever the best options are. From the $10-20 range would be a good price for me.

I know Florida, Texas, and other counties have tried and succeeded to ban books, I wonder how that is even legal since we have the first amendment. I tried doing research on this since Huntington Beach is banning books and people were petitioning against that at the main library.

I made a little post asking people to petition on the Orange County sub.

If you're a resident of Huntington Beach, head over to the library and sign their petition. They're trying to stop the book bans. I don't want to see a mini Florida or Texas in orange county.

Found an article on the topic: https://www.ocregister.com/2024/05/31/petitions-in-huntington-beach-want-to-ask-voters-to-overturn-changes-at-city-libraries/

Are there any good resources for helping someone getting into Linux? One of my friends I never thought would get into Linux is asking me for help. He specifically is an advanced Windows power user. I also had someone who was a complete noob, even to Windows.

For the noob, I suggested LMDE and Kubuntu and they've been having some issues installing LMDE.

For the power user, I suggested the easy distros such as lmde, kubuntu, nobara but also told them if they wanted to jump into the deep end, arch is cool.

However, my suggestions don't even cover DEs, WMs or what they even are. I just wish there was a good guide out there. I think that's the biggest hurdle, so many options and not knowing what to pick.

Thinking about going somewhere with my family this summer, perhaps to Alaska, Hawaii (Kauai), or somewhere Canada.

I would like to experience nice outdoor stuff and do fun activities while I'm there. Any ideas?

I don't want to spend a fortune and so I'm deciding to do classic recurve over olympic since it's much more cheap. What do you guys recommend to try out? The closest archery place has this kit for $300, should I go with it or pick and choose other stuff individually to start out?

When do I sign up for my fall 2024 classes. I accepted my intent to enroll already. I fear by the time I register, everything will be filled up.
