if you like doing your job and going home, how do you bear with coworkers who are lazier but more popular than you and get away with doing less?
  • Moreover, if you see other people around you doing less, then you're under no obligation to do more than they do. Even if you prefer doing your job well, on those days where you're not up for it, don't feel bad about doing less. As long as that doesn't affect how your immediate manager/supervisor/boss evaluates you, do what you need to.

    And let them do what they do. And if they get away with it, that's not up to you to remedy. Employment can be as simple as an agreement to do the minimun needed for them to keep paying you as little as they can get away with. And we're not likely to fix that problem today. 😉

    Best wishes and peace.

  • Side of bed debate - Which side is left?
  • Either:

    • you establish a convention and both learn to choose one perspective or the other
    • one of you tries to do that and the other pretends not to agree, because it's cute and fun as a form of teasing

    Pick one and I hope whatever you pick works for both of you. Agreement is easy, but teasing can be fun.

  • I this a firm and polite way to tell an opinionated coworker to stop pushing his agenda I don't care about?
  • "Unsubscribe."

    This is not necessarily effective on its own, but it's a way to find out what the situation is. It is a simple way to open the discussion about your lack of interest in what they have to say. Sometimes they just shut up.

  • Firmware update notification, but no update applied

    I run a lemp10. I saw a notification of a firmware update, but when I applied the update---apparently successfully---the firmware version did not change. Now I see no pending firmware update.

    What happened? Is this normal? Task failed successfully?!

    Den här låter ju bekant...

    ... men jag minns inte varifrån jag känner igen den.

    Why did I need to restart to upgrade my recovery partition?

    I tried to upgrade my recovery partition today and it failed with "No such device"/OS error 19.

    I found this discussion on Reddit in which @mmstick suggested restarting, but with no explanation as to why that was needed or would work. It worked for me.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/xun8vu/error_updating_recovery_partition_no_such_device/

    I'd like to know why it worked and why it was needed, mostly for two reasons: to generally understand the situation better and to imagine what I might have been able to do that didn't require restarting.

    Thanks.
