@wmww gonna look it up right now :)
current other candidates are: Dell XPS 15, Dell G3/5/7, Acer Predator 500

@jeroenpraat sadly too far away for a quick dash across the country (google maps says sth like 177 km). but if we happen to go vacationing on the beach at some point (its approx a 30 min walk to Rimburg from where we are located), we gonna do an excessive detour via zwolle :)

@ralph which language would that be? ie. your "maiden" language (which probably means "native language" or mother tongue).

@sina is there a definite need for "classic" Windoze, or would a VirtualBoxed one suffice?

You know someone's spreading freedom and peace in the world, when they patent a system for transporting and releasing bio-weapon-infected mosquitos on a population, citing prior art such as:

"Spanish conquistadors killed off the inhabitants of Central and South America with small pox and measles; in the 1700's British forces used blankets contaminated with small pox to infect North American Indians"

Let me amend: uefi is a goddamn trash fire that needs to be stamped out forever.

@wmww what notebook is this? looking for a gaming notebook which works reliable with linux :)

@wmww filing this away mostly to horrify people who shouldn't be on my computer

👍

@WelshPixie dont know whether this is related to the fact that we're nearby Aachen, but in the rest of Germany its been happening in mid of September for the last few years. So probably not much of a difference.

"Excuse me," the robot said, "but I must go recharge."
"So soon?"
"My microphones are bad. I compensate by running audio processing at a higher clock speed, but that drains my batteries faster."
"Oh. I just thought you weren't very social."
"Many of us have similar issues."

@WelshPixie shitmas has been happening here since late August (!)

Not even half way through October and shops here are already decorated for arsemas -.-

News reaches me today of a radio station broadcasting to Iran's LGBT community.

Radio Ranginkaman [Persian for Rainbow] is using an AM transmitter in Armenia (1395 kHz) to beam its programmes into Iran, because this programming is obviously banned there.

@sina
my current fav list for my future t520p:
- linux mint xfce / cinnamon + xfce - daily driver
- manjaro xfce - possible future candidate for daily driver
- mageia - because back in the days, mandriva and mandrake linux looked very promising; my dad used mandriva as his daily driver for a looong time (before switching to Ubuntu)
.. all of these put into multi-boot, of corpse :)

developing on linux:
add "export GOPATH=$HOME/go" to bashrc, source ~/.bash_profile
developing on windows:

@WammKD @sina I dont think so. It's probably that the DIY deb/ubuntu/mint faction is not speaking up / blogging as excessive about their habit like the ones of source/self build distros do. Each and any system which is meant for my own enjoyment, there is about 25 up to 50% self-compiled programs, libs and so on. apt-get build-dep is my friend :)

Allow me to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Attack on Titan, is in fact, Attack on Eoten, or as I've recently taken to calling it, The Eoten Onslaught. Attack on Titan is not a proper English phrase by the author, but rather a shitty translation by some editor's lackey that has no meaning in the proper English language and was probably translated by Google. The Eoten Onslaught is the proper translation for this Manga's Title, made useful by the hardworking translators at Commie, Webster's, Oxford and the Queen's Royal Palace.

Many weeaboos users read a modified version of the Eoten Onslaught manga every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of the Eoten Onslaught which is widely read today is often called Attack on Titan, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the the Eoten Onslaught, translated by Commie.

There really is a Attack on Titan, and these people are reading it, but it is just a shitty translation they use. Attack on Titan is engrish: a Japanese delinquent's attempt of speaking a language he was too stupid to understand while he was in highschool. This lackey is an essential part of an manga ecosystem, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete manga published. The lackey is normally used to get coffee or to draw backgrounds for the manga artist: the whole system is basically Attack on Eoten - a better, but not correct translation - or the Eoten Onslaught. All the so-called Attack on Titan distributions are really distributions of the Eoten Onslaught
