So I know now the location of the joplin data but the file doesn't exist when using the Libe USB??? I checked off my old laptop and found it easily, but when I go under user there is no .config file

Been reading this off and on. Not a, like, chill comforting read by any means, but some good stuff.

Today ended up not too bad, for sure not as great as it can be, but I was able to finish reading and watched some and so that's good! Tomorrow I'll make some califlower and green pepper soup, pickle the jalapeños we grew, and maybe plant garlic for next year but thats unsure right now

Where is stuff stored?! I'm trying to grab that before continuing my fix laptop quest but it literally makes no sense?

Alright I created a bootable Debian USB to test my laptop, and it will boot that up, when I select the windows boot it doesnt work so I *think* its a windows boot issue...the BIOS still sucks om this laptop but my next step I guess is to recover the windows boot sequence???

I'm upset because I realized, while I made a backup of my old laptop, and took all my important documents/pictures/videos from my new one, I neglected to backup my notes from my new laptop and never made a backup of the new laptop and so now, the notes I've been collecting for over 10 years is functionally gone if I need to factory reset


As we've posted previously ( ), we believe that owning up to the reality that we do have secrets to keep is important - and that should not make us "bad" or suspicious people.

Our passwords are secret.

Our home address, email, IP addresses are secrets we may choose to share with some.

Our web searches are secret.

Our political, spiritual and other communications and investigations are secrets.

Don't let "them" turn you into a villain.

Specifically the CD mention is because I have put Debian on a laptop with a disc drive before and have the CD still, could I tear apart my old laptop for the disc drive? Sure but I don't want to. Could I buy a disc drive for my laptop? Yeah but I wanna fix this now at 2 AM

I might be crying just a little because I don't know what is happening or how to fix it and that's always so frustrating...if this had a CD port I'd just install debian I guess and see if that helps but this BIOS screen is so useless and the internet is being useless and the dumb beep is useless because clearly SOMETHING is wrong with my laptop but WHAT

This really doesnt seem like a BIOS screen I've ever seen before... I'm nervous my system has malware now because we were using stream2watch's mirror site without an ad blocker on Chrome...

ARGH! If anyone can help me, I let my parents use my laptop and told my mom to just close the laptop when she is done (she is bad with tech) and when I come home from work, my laptop was starting and turning off continuously, with one strange short beep between. I checked and it looks like the beep means the POST is working fine, but now I have no clue how to start the computer then? I was able to get into the BIOS menu but don't see amything immediately helpful?

Finished this book in honor of and I'm so glad I did. I fully intend to purchase this twice; one for my own (sparse) collection of favorite books, and another to either put in the Little Library in my city or to try and digitally upload. (Anyone who knows how pls lmk!) If you want to have a glance through US trans history in an easy to digest format, or want to teach off it, this is the one! Even has some gay & lesbian history! Fantastic intersectional lens and events picked.

ytdl is still available on pypi. idk where the psf is located but it's hosted by aws so it's just a matter of time really

like fuck can we not host literally everything exclusively at megalomaniac companies located in a megalomaniac police state?

Pals, you don't need to watch the debate tonight.
There are lots of other things you can do.

If you do want to do Something, Atl Jail Support will need a lot more volunteers. We are all burning out. I certainly am. There will be lots of protests coming up, so if you would like to help out with remote work DM me or email [email protected]
