My mother in law asked me to fix her computer. “It’s just really slow.” I haven’t used Windows since, uhhh, XP I guess? And like, Windows has just gotten more and more garbage since then.

Microsoft has a lot of crimes to pay for but wow, Windows really sucks 😭

A good deal of the blame here falls on Asus for installing a bunch of bloatware, but then, who set up the OEM deals to make that possible? Microsoft.

No one to blame for this awful keyboard but the French Canadians, though.

@ashfurrow one day asus will be like "we've done it! we've found incredible! we can all go home now!"

@gbrnt things are speaking for me, are you getting any errors or anything?

@ashfurrow Nothing obvious - I've tried attaching a screenshot of what I'm seeing but it's also looking blank to me. So avatars are non-existent, and I can't see images except the blurred preview... aaand it's back.

This was happening on both my phone (Fedilab) and my desktop browser. Seems to be working again now!

@ashfurrow It started again. I checked the network tab, and requests to cdn.mastodon.technology are getting 0B responses

@ashfurrow The so-called "AZERTY" keyboard is chief and foremost among the misdemeanours of the French.
