warning to fossbros 

@shahaan Hi!
It’s def Windows, switch to Linux
You're welcome!

fossbro sarcasm 

@Mayana lmao okay, thanks! I should’ve realized the problem was with my poor choice of OS all along! Thanks again for making that abundantly clear to me! I am now going to completely wipe the hard drive and install you-bun-two

Follow-up 6h later: hey friend can you help me set up drive partitioning? Also what kernel scheduler should I use—deadline or cfs? Oh btw it says I need swap space equal to RAM do I really need 64GB swap seems like a waste of space...

fossbro sarcasm 

@shahaan Haha yeah. That time I tried installing Debian, the partitioning confused me, too!
Wait, you have 64 gb of RAM? WTF? And here I am dreaming of one day maybe having a computer with 16 ...
Why would anyone need more RAM than that?

fossbro sarcasm 

@Mayana haha no I was just being silly, I have 16GB if you must know 🙂

fossbro sarcasm 

@shahaan Thank god. For a second I was worried you were actually one of those insanely rich people and just failed to mention that. :ms_stick_out_tongue:

fossbro sarcasm 

@Mayana oh jeez even if I was crazy rich I’d still not waste money on 64GB RAM. I mean, I have absolutely no use for anything more than 16GB. If I’m honest I could probably get by fairly well on 8 even.

fossbro sarcasm 

@shahaan But but but ... bitcoin mining! :ms_stick_out_tongue:
Or well, no, not Bitcoin. The new thing Signal is using. MobileCoin!

fossbro sarcasm 

@Mayana lol oh no please tell me you’re joking :blob_facepalm:

fossbro sarcasm 

@shahaan About Signal implementing crypto payments? Afraid that part's not sarcastic. :ms_frown: It's been all the rage on the Fedi.

People are apparently switching away from it because of this. I just don't have the energy to. I found an app that works and other people use; I'm staying, damn it!

signal, crypto payments 

@Mayana okay, I’ll have a look when I get some time. Honestly, I’m going to continue using Signal for the time being as well.
