I find it amazing -- and incredibly tiresome -- how something really cool can be built by people who are unashamedly weird; then once it starts getting popular with The Normals™, every last bit of character has be scoured out of it, and every one of the weirdos who built it has be driven off & hounded even when they go to build their own little spaces in the corners.
Trying to quickly archive my laptop home folder onto a pendrive so I can reformat, and the damn thing keeps erroring out at ~4GiB
So, naturally, I start wondering whether I've got counterfeit 8GB drives, or something; and start troubleshooting.
It's only when I sit there and wait for a 'dd' test file to create -- whereupon it errors out at 4GiB exactly with a "file too large" error, that I realise what's going on.

Between 50+ hrs/week at work since August last year; fumbling hard with union stuff (D'ya know how soul-crushing it is to tell people desperate for help, "No response yet, hoping soon", over and over for weeks?), personal life shittery; other urgent stuff piling up waitin on time/energy/the will to live; & the world burning down...
...I don't think I've had more than *maybe* 5 consecutive hours sleep except over xmas. And oh boy, the hallucinations are real.
Big cat. Oft grumpy cat. Also often greasy/oily/dirty cat.
