· Web · 9 · 21

to be honest i think i might stop using the internet. so then i wont have to update my computer anymore. because whenever i update anything anymore it just gets worse. worse than it already was!!! and its already pretty bad!!!!

all u people making techs??? techin' makes??? writing codes??? making the computer??? all u people??? making the Computer??? ???? you're doing a pretty bad job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

do a better computer

ah you uhhh.... you made the computer?? that was you????? do it again

@jk we're just gonna skip over Computer 2 and go straight to Computer 3 this time. Don't just damn the torpedoes, but fuck them as well!

@jk if we made a Good Computer it would look at us and say 'you are not as good as me' so we are all safer making Bad Computers and plugging them into Terrible Robots

@jk The ones I build seem to work pretty well for at least 10 years.

@ajeremias @jk Graphics design truly is my passion.

@ajeremias @jk Probably not that good, though. I think that may have been the peak of your life.

That is much better than the All Computers Are Broken sticker on my laptop.

@WAHa_06x36 @ajeremias @jk a new alt.sysadmin.recovery motto for the twenty-teens

(the alt.sysadmin.recovery motto of the 1990s was "all software sucks, all hardware sucks".)

@jk @jamey Please don't let my parents know

@jk
It is the year 1998, and if you buy a kewl new eMachine desktop computer, it will Never Be Obsolete*!

@jk this is a great side effect if running our own Linux distro and not having enough volunteers: very little updates :D (the only thing that auto updates in my machine is Firefox, due to security reasons). anything else I leave as is unless I need something new. I ran the same kernel for over 5 years.

@hisham_hm isnt that insecure though??? I’m sure if I tried to do that lots of Security Fans would show up and tell me im doing the wrong thing!!

@jk supposedly yes — I don't recommend it for running a server, obviously. but for a user machine the attack vector is essentially the browser. plus, using a crazy non-standard distro like means the script-kiddie stuff probably doesn't even work out of the box (granted, that latter point is sort of security by obscurity)

Software is never done. There's always another bug to be found.

@zash often because the world around it keeps changing!

@hishamhm Indeed. <insert xkcd reference> "the requirements have changed"

@jk until it can read social networks, no

@jk @grainloom if software is so good, how come there's no software 2?

@devurandom @jk @grainloom it's not that its good, its more like a cult software status.

Meaning it'll be a few years before they do a remake.
