I helped out someone's grandma last night. She wanted me to install MS Teams so that she could join a meeting.

It took half an hour just to get it installed and to open up. I had to leave before I could connect her to the meeting. But she's running Windows 10 on an older laptop and the machine is underpowered for Windows 10.

I am very tempted to format the thing and install Linux.

The trouble users had yesterday launching apps on #macOS isn't just a technical problem, but a moral one. Operating systems should service their users, not phone home to a corporation to see if they're "permitted" to run the program. #Apple

Currently installing Debian 10.6 32bit on a Sony Vaio from 2007 or 2008. It has been going for an hour and I feel like take another 30 minutes.

Moral of the story:
1. Old tech ain't useless. It is just slow.
2. Buy SSD. Don't torture yourself.
3. Debian is your friend to fight tech garbage problem.

Lessons to be learned:
1. OS installer shouldn't go to sleep because IT ISN'T IDLE.
2. Install Debian on HDD to browse SSDs on old hardware.
3. Buy an SSD.
4. Switch to SSD.

If you are or are not a #signal user, please consider taking the signal user survey. Signal does not collect analytics on their users to respect privacy and I appreciate them transparently asking for the feedback instead. More information on their blog entry: signal.org/blog/signal-researc

Link to survey: surveys.signalusers.org/s3/03f

Also, if you haven't tried signal in the last year+ they have made significant user experience improvements (new features, ease of use, stability).

I am really loving this app. Whenever I used AppImages before, I had to extract it first to get the icon file (many don't integrate with the system by default) and then create a custom launcher. Now, it's just as simple as making it executable and running it. AppImageLauncher takes care of mostly everything else.
