I’m a white man and I’m afraid of the police. Not because I’m been specifically targeted like people from multiple minorities, but because of the arbitrary I’ve learned they’re using to conduct their job.
I bought the LEGO Technic 42098 Car Transporter set to build a custom design, and my decision to still build the official model was a mistake.
When fullscreen applications crash on Windows 10, sometimes it isn’t enough to open the Task Manager with a keyboard shortcut, it will show behind the fullscreen still and be unusable. But using the multi-desktop feature can get rid of the invading still picture to use the Task Manager freely.
I read a Fediverse post simply stating that what makes Twitter bad is the people on Twitter. I do not believe in this oversimplification, even if I believe the Fediverse is a better place than Twitter.
