Anyone got any ideas for how to get Linux adopted, that aren't just victim-blaming Windows users?

Ok, KDE Neon didn't work out.

Fortunately, that other Ubuntu-based mobile arm7 os still exists, courtesy of UBPorts.

(Sidenote, I seem to be a bit of an armv7 fangirl.)

Umm, that can't be right, there probably isn't that much mass storage at my entire university, let alone a single cute little Nexus smartphone.

Emmeryn's first law:

Any technical system designed to compensate for ADHD by being annoying, will be defeated or removed within the week.

TeamWinRecoveryProject (n) the firmware that smartphones WOULD come with, if they were engineered to be fully open to users.

So, I was lamenting the fact that the Galaxy won't run custom operating systems,

and I realized:

I still physically have the Nexus,

and nothing's stopping me from dailying multiple smartphones.

Which leads to only one conclusion:

It's phonebricking time. Now, where did that doomed little Nexus scurry off to?

Just told DHL to ship to one of their offices that's accessible by mass transit, because I don't want to deal with UCSD mail unless I absolutely have to.

Oh god, making my own compiler is its own undertaking. Even retargeting a simple existing one like vbcc appears to be a comparable effort to the rest of designing a custom ISA.

I guess I'll be spending the next week (more like a year, adjusted for ADHD) of personal project writing this thing.

"DHL Express 2393956095 from SYABAS TECHNOLO estimated Mon Jan 20. "

That's always something good to see in your SMS when just waking up.

What's better, I can give them my physical street address (which differs from my USPS mailing address), which is good because the parcel center is probably closed Jan 20.

Professor: write a 250 word bio on the class site

Also professor: his own bio is 45 words

Quick question,

Anyone know any good C compilers or assemblers easily adapted to fully custom instruction sets?

Ok,

Designing an 8bit RISC ISA is an exercise in masochism.
