Great piece of journalism there from the BBC. Apparently, the ONLY option to Windows 7 is Windows 10.

This is a fucking tragedy, all those poor Pringles. I'm in mourning.

To quote the great literary genius Noddy Holder, IT'S CHRIIIIIIIISTMAAAAAAAAS!

Hope you're all having a good one. I'm just about to open my presents, here we go!

@mxlinux @MXLinux Merry Christmas (Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah) to everyone on the MX Linux dev team! Thank you for another brilliant release this year. I hope all of you and your families have an excellent, well deserved break. (Just remembered, I must post this on the forum as well!)

You can't beat putting off wrapping all the presents you bought until Christmas Eve. Turns it into more of a sport than something that just needs to be done.

I swear, the Christmas lights in Kilmarnock get fucking worse every year. (Apologies for the quality of my phone camera, this is why I prefer a DSLR.)

Now listening to . Loving the music, but simultaneously feeling bad for Marie Fredriksson.

It's my Birthday, and I'm incredibly drunk, and I've just remembered I have a Mastodon account. Apologies for the forthcoming shit posts. Really, I'm so sorry.

I really hope the exit poll is a pile of festering, steaming shit.

FOR MX-18 USERS ONLY!

There has been an update to the 4.19 kernel used in MX-18 and -19.

MX-18 users won't get that automatically, so should use the Package Installer.

It includes some security improvements, so the update is advised for all MX-18 users.

To quote Jefferson Starship "We built this city on Rock and Roll. But we still had to pile the foundations to the bedrock due to the overlying glacio-fluvial deposits being highly unsuitable for standard stepped or pad foundations. In fact, the CBR results also indicate a full 600mm capping layer will be required for road construction."

Hot take: 

This should be fun!

There are claims that hooking my password dstabase to the internet is "more secure" than keeping it totally offline.

I ain't havin' it.

I'm beginning to suspect Charles Darwin may have been wrong solely on the premise that Joey Essex is still alive and kicking.

Introducing: Tober. A month with no theme where I do absolutely fuck all except vape, drink beer and eat tacos.

And possibly Pringles.
