wish software would stop updating tbh. most software is done
@jk i want to be done too
@jk I don't make the computers I only connect them!!!!! with worse computers !!!!
@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 calm down strong bad!
@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.
acab!! all computers are broken
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 #GoboLinux means the script-kiddie stuff probably doesn't even work out of the box (granted, that latter point is sort of security by obscurity)
@zash often because the world around it keeps changing!
@jk until it can read social networks, no
