So Pale Moon's resident toxic dumpster fire (Tobin) went full retard and ragequit the project, taking down a bunch of infrastructure with him.
They should have kicked him out half a decade ago.
I never have used pale moon and still don't intend to because the other main developer (apart from being an annoying furry) is also a cunt about licensing and stuff. I've linked to that OpenBSD fiasco before.
In other news, watched Project A-Ko for the first time the other day, and the Tenchi Muyo OVA's as well.
I'm going to do "Dirty Pair" next.
The fn/ctrl keys aren't the issue.
* F1-F4, F5-F8, F9-F12 have no physical separations into quadrants, making finding the right key more annoying.
* the arrow key/home/end/pageup/pagedown/insert/delete cluster is all scrambled.
* The cheap-ass one-size-fits-all '|\'/return key so they don't have to make two cases. Dell does this too and it sucks as much there.
I have replaced the heatsink in an X201. it took ~20-30 minutes. Not world ending.
I've also replaced every other component except the motherboard, LCD, and underchassis (bottom of case). The lid has been replaced.
Anyway, the LCD looks great, and the price is decent. But I'm still disappointed because a Panasonic Let's Note still looks much more attractive (even at its much higher price point) in terms of the design and the usability. It has all the ports you'll want built in instead of requiring dongles for absolutely everything. Even has an optical drive.
CPU-wise, you still have some hypervisor running in there (probably Minix-based) that you can't touch.
Anyway, that aside, it's better than 90% of the junk out there. It just didn't go far enough in fixing all the other modern laptop crap. It should have jettisoned that style in favor of something less wasteful/more utilitarian than an apple-style aluminum chassis.
>Women are impulsive, emotional, easily intimidated
You've just described me.
Also, saying a lot of women are like that is fine, I even agree with you. But it's not true of all women so I try to give them a chance before looking at them that way.
>The average young man I encounter on the street is hardly a prize to be won by women; their relationship woes come as no surprise to me in the slightest.
This is true.
I am happy to stay a virgin until (and if) the time comes that I meet someone I can bond with intellectually and emotionally.
>Treat women as you would men - as autonomous companions - and you will find nothing but frustration.
That's why I am willing to play the long game and be certain about the nature of the person I'm considering committing to before I even attempt it. If they don't want to play the long game, they aren't the one.
>The vast majority of them lack the abstract thinking that would allow them to consider the long-term consequences of every action. Many have little interest in anything outside pop culture and entertainment.
I am often saddened by this, but there are *some* nice women out there who I can relate to. Tomboys, mostly.
I will say that for every lengthy discussion I have with a girl, at least three quarters of them feel vapid. I mostly attribute this to upbringing, and parents/teachers/peers who didn't encourage intellectual curiosity in them, rather than "the genetic fact of being a woman." In other words, I think this problem is a result of social norms.
There is a nice (tomboyish) girl I hang out with sometimes. She has told me she explicitly does not want to do dating or anything serious right now on account of her responsibilities to her family and work not really giving her much time to unwind if coupled with relationship drama. I can respect that answer, so I just treat her as a friend and I value that. I can't prove it, but I don't think she is lying about anything.
She has explicitly told me she is not a lesbian and she thinks I'm subjectively attractive, so I think there may be hope there in the future. If it doesn't work out (or she turns out to actually not be interested in me at all), that's fine.
