Hardware gore 

The person who mounted the fans and the radiator didn鈥檛 know what they were doing. Seriously. They used the wrong screws and too much force when mounting them鈥

New issue: one of the fans is making a strange noise. Time to investigate.

This is my brother-in-law鈥檚 computer. He doesn鈥檛 know much about computer hardware so he probably paid someone to build him this. I鈥檓 betting he doesn鈥檛 even know there were so many problems with it. It all started with BIL asking me to install an SSD. 馃ゲ

Looking closely, it looks like the radiator as a whole is bent and preventing the fans from spinning?

Nereid gloves for #MerMay! I'm so pleased that the mirrored lace pattern turned out okay on the second glove, phew!

Hardware gore 

It looks like whoever built this computer tightened the front facing fans too much鈥 So much they can鈥檛 spin.

I don鈥檛 think this computer has been cleaned or well maintained in the past six years or so.

This bug made me realize I'm in the minority of people using two displays with different rotations. I didn't see anyone complaining about it in the circles I've joined over the past two years (it was a minor thing, sure, but it was so annoying).

The fix for that annoying bug with the cursor rotation on Mutter just hit Fedora's stable repositories! :blobcheer:

I have just had the worst UI experience of my life 

A stranger adds me on instagram

Stranger: hey can you vote for me in some influencer poll
Me: lmao
*hits the top right corner to open the menu to block this person*
*instead pushes the button to start a video call with this stranger*
Aaaaaaahh
*there is no big red button to end the video call*
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
*Exiting the app does not end the video call*
aaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAA
*I panick and throw my phone on the couch*
*I just turn the damn thing off*

My favourite swipe typo of the day: "Norse cancelling headphones". Presumably that means Bluetooth is turned off.

Are there any Masto accounts like CompAesthetics on Twitter?

I want to see pictures of random people's nerd setups.

on the internet you're like
"ugh dont you hate it when youre washing a spoon and the water sprays in your face"
and everybody's like "haha yeah i relate to that, happened to me yesterday lol"
but there's one person who's like "actually... Spoon Accidentally Spray In Face, that is kind of my entire world... it means so much to me... and i wouldnt be here today with without it... the truth is that Spoon Accidentally Spray In Face got me through some tough times... got me through high school..."

Fine, here's my insightful take on manhood:

How to tell if you're a man: Does it make you happy to think of yourself as one? If you're not sure, try it out. Take as much time as you need. Much love to you on this journey.

How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.

How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.
