Folks who know Windows better than I do: why would Windows 10 not assign a drive letter to my exFAT external drive? I end up having to assign it a letter at every single reboot and I can't figure out why. And google isn't helpful and recommending shady-ass solutions.

I'm too tired to watch that shit. I'll eat too much curry while re-watching Futurama for the 100th time instead.

Been preparing a move for the past week and a half and while this isn't my first rodeo, I clearly forgot how grueling the whole "pack your shit quickly but also not too quickly because you can't do anything" situation is. Truly hate it.

"...in my humble but correct opinion, Mozilla should be doing two things and two things only:

* Building THE reference implementation web browser, and
* Being a jugular-snapping attack dog on standards committees.
* There is no 3.

"... At this point, I assume Mozilla's voice on the standards committees has all the world-trembling gravitas of "EFF writes amicus brief.""

When will @SlackHQ let me open a thread in a separate window? Am I supposed to keep switching between 3 threads in a tiny sidebar until the end of time?

If you want to democratize tech, don't start with people who are already into tech. Go to actual craft fairs and figure out what little old ladies need from tech that is either a) not being met or b) being met by super-expensive corporate shit.

Like. Why isn't there a raspberry pi workshop/booth at the county fair? Why are you relying on normal people to seek you out instead of meeting them where they are?
