gaining a lot of joy sending my resume as an eattherich.club link despite nobody mentioning it yet

My desktop has been doing this thing where sometimes the fan goes full blast and the whole system crashes to a pure black screen. Thought it was Windows at first but just happened on eOS so maybe it's a hardware thing??

US political strategy, Federal Police response 

George Lakey is making a case for nonviolent resistance in the face of the federal police deployment, so as to avoid Trump staying in power if he loses the election.

The argument is that in order to avoid Trump remaining in office, we'll need centrists to choose "maintenance of a functioning government" over a Trump coup.

Nonviolence will make it easier to keep centrists on our side.

So far I'm having fun with the Android platform. Dipping my toes into location services so I can make a trivial "mileage tracker" as v0.0.1 of an app I'm calling Cycle.
