@Tarale Nice! As for the floor being sticky, at least it didn't involve having to clean up glitter. :)
I tracked down a MATE bug that breaks font thumbnailing in Ubuntu Bionic / Mint Tara and newer. If you're interested, check out my PR: https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-control-center/pull/502
@aussocialadmin Yep! I'm not too sure how I feel about it- It looks a little wasteful compared to the advanced mode.
Quick note about invoices and receipts: I'm now writing and sending these directly as text via email. It looks less elegant, but this means you no longer need to handle PDF documents. This allows easier reading, copying, pasting, searching, and archiving. If you don't like this, don't worry: I'm still happy to send you or print PDFs at your request.
@enetheru I've found the best method for capturing flies is probably a clapping motion from the side while they've landed on something. To avoid being caught they have to fly upwards and fast rather than just moving away.
Behaviour-wise, regular houseflies (brown) tend to fly in a pattern and land regularly, getting caught against windows helps confuse and catch them.
Blowflies (green) however stay airbourne with irregular landings which makes them exceedingly difficult to catch.
I imagine the failure is due to low quality parts, or even bad emulation- It would freeze during SMART tests. Searching up the controller chip SM2246XT online shows some similar board layouts. Today's hard lesson is: Don't buy electronics off shady eBay sellers.
Here's the full counterfeit board in its glory. A single Toshiba NAND chip and a SATA controller on a green PCB. Definitely not a large blue PCB with multiple Kingston NAND chips.
A QR code for the serial number, not a Data Matrix code? The sticker is also a little off-center. Could this be counterfeit? Let's look inside- Uh oh...
@wobin Nope, I removed the attached black and white warranty sticker from the front and lost it earlier.
I haven't heard of manufacturers using Philips screw heads. Anything off about the back?
