Hoy folks and folksines!
I dunno if you’ve read it but Karmi’s at it again. This time he auto-self-enrages over my naming of this diary column as ‘Prison’. Too bad my choosing of name had and has nothing to do with any point he’s making. All I gotta say about my title choice is that I didn’t think for a split second about any comparison of lockdown with a real prison but meant it more in a tongue-in-cheek way.
Everybody knows, or should know, that we’re all in lockdown under basically the same conditions, as we can go out to do essential work and shopping. I dunno about you, but we don’t even have a time-frame, as I can leave the house anytime I fukn please.
I’m not propagating any forceful incarceration of people but I appeal to everybody to cooperate and be a reasonable, socially minded human being during the crisis. Ok?
And since hindsight is 20/20 now I would have chosen 10 different titles, all of them better and more fitting than ‘Prison’.
But I digress, so back to the prison diary now: Today I have some Linux newness for y’all. Isn’t that great? But it’s not real newness though, it’s just a comparison of two stalwart Debian distros, namely MX and my fluffy Sparky Linux.
This so-called distro war was conducted by our friend with the light-yellow voice, Tom:
Tom’s conclusion: Both are excellent. MX is the easier, fully stocked allrounder for n00bs, Sparky a bit more minimal but with more desktops right out of the box for the more enagaged user. I guess that’s why I recommend Sparky over MX for when you wanna walk the Debian route.
What’s the talk on the Covid-19 front? Ugh, guys … it’s no good. More infected, more death. 😦 Do I really have to show you the numbers?
Didn’t I say it since weeks aready? Don’t rush it! SAfrican pupils are so badly educated, a couple more weeks of missing school won’t ruin anyone’s curriculum in any impactful way. And you surely don’t wanna be like the Americans, sending your kidz to school in order to die. Or do you?
You can call me a soviet gulag enforcer all you want, I don’t care. I can only strongly urge you to stay home, relax, sleep, enjoy all the free time, take a long bubble bath, install Linux on some old computer of deceased family members. Enjoy not having to be busy, enjoy your loved ones and be happy to have them around and not out there where they could catch the fukn virus in a heartbeat.
So, as usual, stay hygienic and wash your hands clean of any sin, eat lotsa cake and drink lotsa tea (coffee is crap anyway). Will check up on you again a bit later in the day.
