Time Off

Now that I have some time off, I’m going to bitch about systemd.

Holy. Fucking. God.

What a piece of shit, dude. I don’t even know where to begin. So OpenVPN won’t even work with resolved natively, you have to add a shit up/down script, and the one I downloaded didn’t even fucking work. And the funny thing is, this isn’t the only time I’ve been sorely disappointed by systemd. Isn’t half the point of it supposed to be that you can quickboot? I mean, what the fuck advantage does it offer if quickboot isn’t even part of the equation? Seriously. It’s a huge pain in the dick to cope with.

I think it’s time for me to switch to either void linux or devuan. I’m so fucking tired of this shit. Every bitch, every gripe, every issue I’ve had that was either difficult to resolve or was unresolvable, involved systemd. Not linux itself, but the shit software embedding its claws in popular distros. I’m beyond tired of it.

In any case, that’s my gripe for the moment. That’s really the only update. I don’t want to speak much on my personal life because I don’t know what sort of creepy stalker fucks read this blog.

Murrica

Man, I haven’t had a freaking second to mess around with my blog. Not one iota of free time. Today is the first day in a long time. I’ve been dicking around with ZeroNet recently. It’s pretty cool. Getting tor working with it was a bit of a pain in the ass, but not the worst I’ve had to go through. Just have to make a mental note- When you change group membership you have to log out and log back in, lest the changes may not be reflected. Pain in the fucking ass. But worth it. ZeroNet is pretty...

i8042 Thaw Fix for Ubuntu (and possibly others)

This one has been plaguing me since I installed Ubuntu Budgie. I have a Lenovo I don’t know what the fuck and it happens to have a track pad of model “i8042”, which is a real fucking downer because it’s not supported super-well. I’ve added kernel command line options from previous suggestions such as “i8042.dumbkbd” or some such, but that didn’t really pan out for me. It still froze and freaked the fuck out on thaw. Or at least the keyboard quit responding completely. So I’ll share something with you that did work. That still works. That keeps me from...

Random Ass Nothing

Man, I don’t know anymore. I’m so damn busy every day that I don’t have any semblance of a hobby anymore. It’s ridiculous. I can’t take enough time out of what remains of a day to write a technical blog post about whatever the fuck I’m able to mess with in the five minutes a day I’m not at work or doing some chore at home. Truth be told, my job is absorbing so much of my life that my hobbies are leaking into my job. It’s insane. I’d love to be able to whip something up, some neat tip...

Richard Roby News

It’s been a while since I’ve kept up with what Richard Roby has been doing with his life. Suffice to say, he isn’t up to anything good. Some of you are probably aware I’ve been hosting FBI depositions proving he’s a fed snitch every time he gets snagged. So, there’s always that. But apparently he’s also a really violent spouse. I’m not that surprised. The sick son of a bitch can’t contain his anger, and he even unleashes his anger upon his pregnant wife. So he’s been arrested because the neighbors called the cops on him while he was assaulting...
