I just logged in from my Debian desktop PC and saw ads on Sectual...

... for the first time ever!

I will allow ads on Sectual because I want to support MO.

But damn it, the rest of you had best not push your luck.

Oh wait, this isn't a Debian box anymore.

Evidently I installed Ubuntu on it at some point. When the hell did that happen?!?

Gotta say I'm loving the taller screen on this box. My laptop screen was rather cramped vertically.

Hey thanks Dev! That is so kind of you to even say.

Yes there have been ads on the site for well over a year, maybe longer... I can't remember.

They only appear to Guests (folks who aren't logged in).

In case you're wondering why I'm sitting at my desk rather than reclining seductively like Cleopatra on a chaise, half-naked slaves fanning me with palm leaves as I indulge languidly in wine and honey, it's because my laptop has developed a weird problem. The mouse pointer flits very rapidly all over the screen, clicking everything in sight and wreaking general havoc. It's unusable. An error message I was getting said there was an error in Cinnamon, the desktop environment I was using. I uninstalled Cinnamon and reverted to the default Ubuntu desktop, but it got even worse.

I could've sworn the wifi didn't work at all on this PC when last I fooled with it, but I'm very relieved it does.

God's looking out for you... that's how things work sometimes.

It's been pretty strange lately with electronics and machinery.

Really hardcore Mercury retrograde vibes, but it's not even here yet!

I know, right? These kids wandering about with their noses stuck in their smaht phones are queer as all get out.

Yeah, and they're all wearing skinny jeans.

The males are rail fucking thin with limp wrists, the females are already fatasses but somehow they can't even fucking cook?

They ain't gonna make it, y'all.

That's why they're fatasses. If they could cook, they'd be able to eat real food.

Yeah true.

It just disgusts me when I find out that women can't cook, especially when they're responsible for a man...

It's fucking unacceptable. For real. And what if they have kids too, and they don't cook for them?? It's heartbreaking.

I have an entire thread about this though, I am not gonna rehash it. Puts me in a bad mood.

I'm eventually gonna have to arrange things so that I can use this PC while lying down.

Get creative man...

If I told you how I've got my hardcore villainous chillzone set up, it'd automatically make me seem a solid 70% less glamorous.

But is it comfortable?

Only really really fucking really...

Ohyeah

Trust me, I'm gonna get creative. I'm moving a memory foam mattress and box springs in here on Sunday. I have to wait and see how tall the bed will be before I start adjusting everything else.

Absolutely beautiful. I like the way you operate, Dev...

This Ubuntu install is probably a year old or more, and I just updated it.

No flaky cursor. This confirms the laptop has a hardware fault.
