What a beautiful metaphor for the human condition.

What makes me mildly sad is that misanthropy is still hip amongst kids. Humans are great, and we're doing great.

Verdict's still out on humans, honestly. We're still in the prototype phase. Either we annihilate ourselves and are forgotten, settle into some strange stasis of low tech and no way to advance, or we change life on earth forever.

Or we live on the moon. Theres plenty of living space on the moon. We just need to dig it.

But no, unplugging/restarting the laptop does nothing. I fear the charger port is damaged somehow, or maybe the battery connection to it came undone. If i open it up, i void the warranty and if theres a real problem from the manufacturer i have to fix and pay for it myself, but if i dont and its just a loose wire from animals roughhousing around my bag when nobodys looking, its a waste of everybodys time and money, and i dont know if theyre just going to ship me a new laptop and trash my harddrive. I dont have battery power left to back everything up...

Unplug the laptop and check the cable/plug, then check the terminal and dust it. Also disconnect the battery (removing the battery shouldn't void anything) and check it's terminals. If that doesn't all work then switch the plug socket, doesn't need to be permanent just need to rule out dodgy sockets.

If all that doesn't work then it is probably internal which sucks.

None of that worked when i tried it last night, and i have to remove the entire back plate to get to the battery, which is the issue.

I hate shoddy warranty policies. Its like schrodingers manufacturer defect, if it exists im not allowed to find out.

fighting a modified chromebook.

It makes me angry.


It support booting uefi, and has a built in microsd card slot. It supports booting from the microsd card slot.  the baked in storage is emmc.  The baked in storage is 16gb.

I want to get this POS to dual boot windows 10 and xubuntu.  This should be theoretically possible by using win to go to get windows installed onto a microsd card, shrinking the windows partition, installing xubuntu onto the emmc, creating a home partition in the freed space on the microsd, and bob should be my uncle.

But no.  No.

It has to be fucking difficult as shit.

That sounds intensely frustrating, and I've never heard of trying to boot Windows on a Chromebook.  I'm a tiny bit surprised the drivers would work for half of it, but I guess things are pretty standardized these days.

And to think I was just annoyed when I couldn't get Discord to run on a Chromebook.  Even the web client wouldn't work because of some kind of weird firewall / protection in its version of Chrome that blocked the web requests.

I have this deep, dark fantasy that I haven't told anyone. In it, somebody says to me "itisnotlogical, I know you've had a long day so I'm going to treat you to something special: I'm going to ask you to do something in no uncertain terms instead of passive-aggressively complaining about it for the next ten hours."

Pretty messed-up and unrealistic, huh?

That sounds like pro-human propaganda to me. Don't believe the hype!

I didn't die this weekend. Doctor says I have high blood pressure and I was probably having benign palpitations. Possibly from anxiety, possibly a non-serious heart thing. Either way, she gave me hydrochlorothiazide (water pill) to bring my bp down a bit.
