Re: Old Gear

You could learn linux with VMWare (or equivalent) if you wanted too. Then switch when you are comfortable with it and found a distro that you like.

Admitedly a lot of that was Starlink but still, I think they got this launch thing figured o...

Re: Jobs Lost To AI

I imagine young people getting used to this sort of bilge, and I think it could be a disaster for the quality of human knowledge. It's disgusting. AI music is starting to get pretty good: NOTE: Link didnt start at the right time. Jump to 5:43 for the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kU4bGpEtW...
