⚠ i386 Lubuntu in danger of disappearing. URGENT help needed! ⚠
Here is a funny story - when building my #Ryzen rig that I'm using right now I wanted to get #ASrock AB350 Pro4, since it support IOMMU and it's cheap, but mine came DOA, and I've replaced it with Fatal1ty X370. Now my friend got Pro4 for his Ryzen build, and it's from the later batch, since it has an updated BIOS for Ryzen with Vega, but his one came DOA as well, so he RMA'd it for Fatal1ty B450. So has there ever been a working Pro4?
- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
I have the previously mentioned addons. I like mozilla (most of the time), but don't like this:

If I opt-out, I have to be sure I opt out. I personally err on the side of they-know-what-they-are-doing, but especially @neofox medium(?!?) article did not make me feel good.
So, this is official. #Mozilla is willing to install addons into your #Firefox to collect your data silently in the background without consent.
Well that escalated quickly
