Got my new mini PC GPD P2 Max. Linux pretty much runs out of the box because they use standard stuff everywhere now. Only two issues: 1) memory was terribly fucked upon arrival. coredumps and kernel memory corruption everywhere. Fixed by a BIOS update provided by customer service. 2) The goodix touchscreen does not work seemingly due to ACPI implementation problem.
At the end of the day Google is becoming so dominant on the web that they practically *are* the web, so you either use Google products or you avoid touching a computer. I can't quit Google entirely (Chrome DevTools, GMaps, YouTube are the big ones for me).

Yet another excited Mastodon instance.
This node has not a main focus, and I do think it should never have. Read Rules before deciding to join, please.
This instance has an alias domain, `@angry.im`. Any user on this instance with `@sn.angry.im` can also be identified using `@angry.im`, e.g. `@[email protected]` and `@[email protected]` are equivalent. Other Mastodon instances will recognize the alias and redirect to the correct user account.
