@klardotsh sometimes I think about limiting my own internet access just to improve my quality of life.
When construction knocked out my connection for a week, I missed streaming media more than anything.
I could plan ahead by downloading the episodes I wanted while at the office, but even that starts to quickly seem like more trouble than it's worth.
I worry about other stuff like downloading a buggy OS upstate, and not being able to fix it until I get back to the library for another update.
@pinkprius My hometown, Gent in Belgium, banned cars from the city centre and it is a great success:
After reading a magnificent book of Thai stories, I finally got to the last, and longest, and liked it the least. Maybe it was the male author writing apparently less believably about a female protagonist. Maybe a longer story just gives you more room to screw up. Maybe I'm just so sympathetic to male leads that anything else falls flat. Or maybe it was just a dud. 🤷🏼♂️
@klardotsh I know this probably sounds weird but I haven't had any problems with btrfs; just this one bug which isn't a big deal. btrfs still seems like the best overall choice right now.
I have old CD rips with audible errors, so I want to avoid that going forward. I just don't know at what point the errors were introduced: sitting on failing disks? Being transferred from one place to another? btrfs should save me from trouble in either of these situations, though there is a lot of development going on with filesystems these days
