Dell has Alienware.
Acer has Predator.
Same gaming laptop segment.
So it is Alien vs Predator!!6
If you had to use one laptop for programming on a daily basis and nothing else, which one would you choose? And I'm talking about to work and back home, and you can't use another monitor either.
The GPD pocket windows or the Acer Predator?
Obviously I'm not getting any of those. I'm just curious.
Someone as scrawny as me probably won't be able to carry the Acer Predator, and it discriminates against lefties. The pocket windows is too small for anything, but it is adorable.14
I started recently working for a big company, and when I say big, I mean really BIG.
Well, my colleagues are from different parts of the world, of course some names are harder to pronounce, so, let's say your name is 'Yagarishmakeshin', well, sometimes is easier(and I used to think friendly) to call you by a shorter name, for this example let's say 'Yag', you know, like Apu form the Simpsons, which is normal I think, people use to call me always by shorter names too and is fine.
Well, yesterday I received a complain from HR saying some people complain about this, it turns out this is offensive or degradating; I was also warned about not calling a girl 'girl', example:
- random girl at my team - So, I created this routine which is very effective and provides good performance
- me - Awesome girl, very cool
Well, Someone complain I call them 'girl' and is not fine.
I cannot tell you how frustrated I feel about this, is like, if you feel uncomfortable with a short name, just say it to me, something like 'Hey I prefer you call me by my full name' or something like that, but nah, you prefer to raise a complain like if I were a fucking predator or something; Also, I cannot retaliate or mention the topic, I need to change and pretend nothing happened.
Fuck you big corporations, and fuck you skinny stupid bitch18
The Predator Thronos by Acer... 3-monitor gaming rig that reclines and tilts backwards electronically. It is made for "serious gamers."
OR... I finally found my Arch Linux workstation and I'll never have to get up again!
My code cocoon! It's like I'm back in the womb with a 10 gigabit umbilical cord 🤤🤤🤤4
I'm always torn at the gym:
As a former rower, it gives me almost physical pain to see people on the rowing machines, flailing around and almost falling off sideways (rowing is an elegant, albeit masochistic sport).
However, as a swiss person, strangers are my natural predator and might eat me alive if I dare speak to them...3
Install Instagram, Facebook.
Utter words like "Gaming Laptop" "Predator" "MSI" while screen being locked.
Voila, you get an ad.
PS: I swear I didn't search for any MSI or gaming laptops in google or even typed those words in recent past.6
I have Manjaro KDE on my Acer Predator Helios 300 (dual boot with W10, unfortunately, because games/some programs needed).
I want to try another distro.
Is Fedora a good choice ? Is there any potential issue or things I should look out for ?
Do you know a good distro that runs fine on that hardware ? I'm just curious here.
Any tip before I backup my home ?
I put the / on my SSD and the /home on my HDD. Any reason why I shouldn't keep it that way ?
Thank you :-) !7
What’s up with all the “To Catch a Predator” and Chris Hansen videos showing up on my YouTube recommendations. Apparently, too many people have been binging on them in this lockdown.2
