Nonsense. I buy my cannabis from mom & pop growers who only sell enough to cover their costs of growing their own. I also grow a little (very little.) There is no "black market" or "organized crime" involved at all.
My sole advice to myself when I started out would have been to buy Microsoft stock.
More than buying a house, a car, or anything else, I started out when Microsoft was a penny stock and could have cleaned up big time just by investing a few grand in their stock instead of a car.
If you can't plug it in, you're not getting online here.
One Wifi device with encryption enabled slows down my router so badly that it has trouble resolving domain names. Screw that.
Under Debian with KDE, most of my menu items describe what the application does rather than using it's name. So at least at the foundation of a huge number of distros, there is no excuse for relying on the "cute" names application developers have come up with.
Details, details, details.
I've learned the hard way over the years. Never let Windows Update install a driver of any kind. Ever.
I've had them blow out network cards, video cards, sound cards, and low level on-board devices. I've had them completely bork systems to the point where they were unbootable.
Go to the vendor and get the official updates.
I don't know how they do it, but Windows Update perpetually mis-identifies hardware and installs the wrong drivers, delivers broken drivers, and otherwise screws up when it comes to drivers. Yet the official vendor's drivers (such as Intel) work just fine.
Go figure. One would think Microsoft is just redeploying those same drivers, but years of being burned have taught me that's not the case.

A rose by any other name still smells as sweet.
And a steaming pile of shit by any other name still has flies buzzing around it.
What I'd like to hear is an orchestra recording which mics each instrument and gives each of them a channel. It'd be interesting to see how well Atmos can recreate the sound stage of a full orchestra.
If it can't do that properly, then it's a useless fad, because that's just presenting a "static" sound image, not a moving one. I have a strong suspicion it relies on moving sounds to mask the fact that it's not very accurate about positioning them.
I find it absolutely hilarious the way everyone disparages Chinese manufacturing while 95% of all electronics, clothing, and gadgetry is made in China or other asian countries.
Scariest of all are the ill-informed masses who think that IBM, HP, Dell, etc. actually make any of their own parts any more. They're US companies in name only.
Wake up. Globalization has already happened.
If you're going to spend time with your family, spend it *with* them!
Dad sitting around with his head in a screen and clacking away on the keyboard is *not* "spending time with your family."
Aside from that, you'd be far more productive to spend, say, 7-9 with the family while the kids are up and then focus on work for another couple of hours before going to bed. Interrupted work is not productive work; you're just putting in time and fooling yourself that you're "productive".
My understanding was that the system primarily sorts apps by number of downloads, though.
By that I mean that no amount of discussion or "correction" of abuses of the term will correct the general public's use of it.
See also "cracker" vs. "hacker".
Much as downmodding is not the "disagree" button.
Sorry, but every cannabis sativa plant, whether of the recreational, medicinal, or hemp varieties produces some THC. Granted, hemp is a miniscule fraction of a percentage THC, but it does have THC.
