No common rube
  • Only to login and see rhat they actually didn't restart. They just said so because they think you wont find out 😂

  • What’s the worst piece of technology you’ve ever owned?
  • A CD-Rom with Windows ME. only took me 2 hours after buying to break it in pieces. It hung in the computer store for years as a trofee 😂

  • Microsoft really wants Local accounts gone after it erases its guide on how to create them
  • Thats because a lot of users dont really want to use Windows, or the computer in general. They use it, because they have to.

    For the same reason, i would never know what to do when my car breaks down. Sure i can look under the hood and do this and that. But its not my area of expertise, and its not something im interested in.

    I'm a sysadmin, i know almost everything about powershell and then some. That doesnt mean my users do though. For them, a computer is a magical black box thats supposed to "just work" by clicking here and there. Just like a car is to me :)

  • Microsoft really wants Local accounts gone after it erases its guide on how to create them
  • Yes, you can. But a lot of Windows users dont even know what powershell is.

    And personally i think you shouldnt have to jump through hoops for what i consider basic functionality. They also make it near impossible to install Windows 11 new without having to resort to all kind of tricks to create a local account. Its a shitshow.

    In my humble opinion :)

  • Windows 11 is now automatically enabling OneDrive folder backup without asking permission
  • It'll happen. Microsoft is just waiting to see how much backlash they get, then in a future version its all gonna be enabled by default. "Because people want it! Its the best!"

  • GUI options for KVM?
  • I run KVM on Alpine Linux, then on my debian based workstation i have Virtmanager jnstalled. I can use it to connect to the Alpine KVM and easily add/edit/delete VM's and manage them.

  • Don't mess up secure boot with bitlocker
  • I thought Windows wouldn't let you save it to the same drive? Its been a while, granted. But i had to plug in a USB or print it out.

  • Linux Server OSes?
  • My favorite Server OS is Alpine Linux. Because its small, easy to use.

    Ofcourse its not using the standard GLIBC system, but these days you can run almost anything in docker so thats less of a problem.

  • New Samba community
  • Its rather empty..

  • Not Total Recall (1990)
  • The problem is, knowing Microsft, its gonna be turned on by default. And half the people who use Windows barely know how to turn the computer on and off. Let alone dive deep into some half baked settings app to figure out where to turn it off.

  • Are you a 'tankie'
  • I havent figured out yet what a tankie is.

  • deleted
  • You'll quickly learn that money isnt everything. The stress of this nonsense will eventually kill your work ethics. Start looking now.

  • ICQ, One of the Oldest Instant Messengers, Is Shutting Down
  • knock knock knock in the middle of the nicht because i forgot to turn off my speakers, and the whole household would wake up 😂

    Oh wauw! I think ICQ 98b was the best version ever! Then everyone switched to MSN, and down hill went the internet (for me anyway)

  • Gender neutral language starter pack
  • Hellooooo imbeciles!! That one is my favorite. And gender neutral too!

  • Setapp Mobile brings a promising new iPhone app experience to the EU
  • I used it for the mac. It was cheaper then buying each new version as a standalone of several software items i used. I can see it work for the iphone as well. You may not need that many apps, but if there are 3 or 4 apps someone uses regulary that are expensive to buy, it can be easier (and like i said, in some cases cheaper) to buy a subscription.

  • The Internet is weird
  • But now that the cat's out of the bag...

  • Groep mannen deelt klappen uit aan betogers tentenprotest UvA
  • Het motief lijkt me duidelijk. Deze mannen waren uit op een "potje matten".

  • Zo gaat het nu met de formatie: ‘NSC wil toch wel praten’ (08/03/2024)
  • Als simpel volk snap ik uberhaubt niet waarom het allemaal zo lang moet duren.

    Het volk heeft gestemd, zetels verdelen naar ratio. Opzouten met je "ik wil niet.." je hebt niks te willen. Je bent in dienst van het volk, en het volk heeft gestemd.

    Maargoed, zo denk ik.

  • Facebook and Instagram are currently down.
  • Worry not, im not into conspiracy theories, and i couldnt care less about informing others, mis or not mis.
