My parents are currently playing 20 questions; my dad has a ‘three wise men’ card stuck to his head and is going ‘I know there’s three of them and I know they’re men. What else is there to know? Are they sportspeople?’

Dad update: he’s very very into Linux Ubuntu but doesn’t know how to turn the WiFi on

also: he’s not a coffee snob but most coffee is ‘just quite poor’ because ‘it’s an exquisitely sensitive vegetable’ (my dad is good)

@deerful To be fair, I try to avoid ubuntu. Would not recommend Slackware for a newbie, though. :)

@deerful my mom's 80 year old cousin loves Ubuntu because it's something he can tinker with (which I think is great)

@darius @deerful my grandma was saved from a 'microsoft tech support' scam because her computer ran Ubuntu and the scammer's instructions didn't work. She diligently wrote them down and later asked my dad to help her with them!
