Australian Prime Minister Says He Didn't Sh*t His Pants at McDonald's in 1997

Mr 4 is having a big cry because he still doesn’t want to be 4 years old, to remain 3 forever. Today’s trigger was the “bigger nappies for 4 year olds”.

Literally no option to pre warn techs of incoming issues. Pain in the arse. Just gonna dump it on them at the time, I bet all that needs to happen is a battery replacement. Let’s see if I’m right.

I have a trackpad problem with my MacBook Pro. I booked in a session with, they tell me everything I need to do beforehand which I already did, but they won’t let me tell them before the appointment that the battery life is also in need of service. I know these are related

I am booting the entire os off an SD card slot which is rad (but i want to keep my os x install :) ) - i think it has something to do with it tho, because arch linux documents some trouble with this. but it looks like the module mine uses is xhci_plat_hcd

your fedora 34 repository is non-existent. it only goes up to 32. I could point it to 32 but that's probably not a good idea.

@grumpysmiffy i kinda want to stay in the redhat surrounds so I'm currently installing fedora which has apparently no problem with os x and i kind of wish i did this hours ago, but i did kinda want to do the enterprise one first to see if i can :)
