TFW you kinda hope that app is mining crypto in the background, because if it's generating that much heat just from bad sprite coding, that's just sad.

Wollt ihr euren Servern, PCs oder Notebooks mal etwas gutes tun?

Mehr RAM ist immer gut, oder?

Ich habe einiges an RAM zu verschenken!
Ja, verschenken!
(Übernahme des Portos wäre schön)

Ich gebe ungern alles auf einmal her für "Lagerhaltung", gerne aber für eure konkreten Geräte.

Folgendes habe ich auf Lager:
23x DDR3 2GB unregistered ECC
22x DDR3 4GB registered ECC
8x DDR3 2GB SO-DIMM
1x DDR3 1GB SO-DIMM
4x DDR2 1GB SO-DIMM
22x DDR2 1GB PC RAM
2x DDR2 2 GB PC RAM
sehr viele DDR2 ECC RAM

@ljwrites I mean I thought so too but the problem is that every distro has contrary and opinionated expressions of what the Ur-‘Modern OS’ is, without actually being able to define it. None of them can explain the ‘Modern OS’ any more than those in Plato’s cave can describe the anatomy of the beasts whose shadows they witness on the walls

So Jack's torquing Square Inc into a top-to-bottom blockchain asset company.

@cadadr hmm almost as if there is something wrong with PDFs themselves 🤔

There is not a single decent PDF reader out there, if I may add.

my $role at $work can be summarized, in management speak, as "enablement"

which sounds like i’m giving out free drugs to kids and computers with infinite bandwidth connecting directly to the dark-net.

rather than, you know, "teaching" and "teaching how to learn"
