With it seeming likely that Elon is about to buy Twitter, I’m so glad this instance exists

Just started a blog (still working on making it look more like a 90s site) and published an article from my zine about a long lost MUD

virtualmoose.org/2022/09/26/th

Seeing how the day started, this screen is giving me more anxiety than anything else in my job.

Also, I'd prefer if it updated my laptop's firmware, not mine 😦

Okay, apparently, one can just unplug the laptop for 30s which resets *something* so it boots again.

Thanks, Dell and Microsoft for this brilliant start into the working day.

It finally rebooted and "Alert! A TPM device is not detected".

Guess I'm not gonna do any real work today.

Missed my first meeting because Teams decided it's a "an unknown error has occured, trying to reconnect" kind of day and experience says only rebooting helps.

Now Windows has been restarting for 12 minutes. Last time it took so long, I just turned the laptop off and Windows took the entire system drive filesystem with it.

In 25 years of using Linux, I haven't had one tenth of the problems I had in three years of Windows.

Oh, now it started installing Updates.

Not what I asked you for!

Glad to see I got the rest of my hypothesis right though 😎

Now a map and a ship 🤔

So, to get Cutthroat Bill to join my crew, I need to show him gold. Blondebeard has a gold tooth *and* wants something crunchy to eat. There's a mud puddle in front of the chicken shop and I know I can use the pie pan to dig for gold there, so that's the obvious part.

Bill has a Jawbreaker, which is a bit too obvious so I think that's definitely a red herring.

What else to serve Blondebeard, though?

🤔
