Are there any experts that could offer some points as to how to troubleshoot a cron job not even running? I know I have my crontab successfully setup and that cron is at least trying to call the script but the script never runs.

@housepanther I use Gmail with postfix as a relay to sent email out. Works great for me. I advise to checkout my configs:

Firefox Finally Abandons Mercurial For Git

Why is it that on OSes, even with its early OOM and no swap file / no swap partition (because I have 24 GB of RAM, yo), a runaway memory leak will trash the hard drive with IO for 30 minutes before finally doing what the OOM killer was supposed to do (or until the user power cycles the computer in exasperation)?
Why the heck does this touch storage drives, when there is no swap file/partition?

Just discovered , for installing and running on the . I know that you can install Genshin on the Steam Deck using the official launcher/installer manually, but when I'm able to get myself a much larger SD card, I'm curious to test this thing out to see if it's any better/easier.

OpenTTD is one of my favorite Linux Mint applications. Not only is it absolutely free to play but it’s pretty straightforward to get into. Let’s take a look together if you haven’t checked it out before!

I'd really like the perspective from someone who is new to using Linux. What kind of "how too" videos would really help you out in a pinch? Don't worry if it's mundane, I'm open to any suggestions.

Every once in a while I'm tempted to try to move my daughter over to and shit like this is why. She's a smart kid. I'm sure she can pick it up.

@mausmalone My kids grew up with Linux -- they struggled to learn Windows and MacOS later on when they had to use them for school or work.

None of the 3 major desktop OS's is inherently more difficult than the others; it's just a matter of which you become familiar with first (though I find Linux a little easier to set up than Windows or MacOS because I don't have to search all over the web for peripheral drivers).

What’s interesting about being a woman is that:

I feel I cannot win.

If I dress like a developer which I’ve worn hoodies to conferences that’s shamed, but if I dress feminine, it is sexualized.

Sometimes, it feels like everything I’ve ever done in my life is reduced like:

science innovation? Naw, bewbs.
Kindness? Naw, bewbs
? Naw, bewbs
Don’t care, bewbs

I am a multifaceted person. Why can’t that be recognized?
