    Also, LinkedIn is shit. Seriously, why the fuck would you post anything there that is not job related? There is a curse to being knowledgeable about things.

I deleted my LinkedIn account even before I left college. I failed to see any value in it, and they kept sending me emails no matter what I changed my preferences to. Never looked back. Occasionally I get a surprised reaction when I tell people I'm not in LinkedIn, but you know what, I quite like my current job and I'm not looking for a new one.

    Also, fuck Microsoft.

Word. I actually bought a new gaming laptop yesterday, long overdue. Turns out Dell sells a gaming laptop running Ubuntu! It was incredibly hard to find on their web site though. You'd think clicking "all laptop" and filtering by OS would show all models running Ubuntu, but no. I don't even remember how I was able to find it in the first place, but anyone interested can search their web store for cn55818. It even has a decent price for a laptop with a GTX1060 and 8th generation i7.

Also to see videos on Dell's web site you need Flash Player. What year is this?

To manage some of my hardware at work I have to keep a Windows XP machine running with Java 6. Java7 and Java 8 break all the connections, buttons and ability to do anything, along with the dozen or so security warnings and demands for updates.
