I did. They sent me a second laptop. Same problem. Galago Pro. I wish I knew how to diagnose the problem or to figure out the difference between your machine and mine.

So in order to use a modern (all-in-one) headset with my System76 laptop running Pop!_OS/Ubuntu, it appears that I must use a USB audio adapter and not the built-in microphone jack. Strange. Similar problem to when I first switched to an Apple Powerbook G4 over 10 years ago.

We shared a bottle with friends, one of which has done some sommelier training. He approved. We certainly recommend it.

"Don’t ask multiple choice questions." said that to me, so I say that to others.

I just marked the box: Romane Machotte 2025 and Le Pas de L'aigle 2030. Now we see if we can wait that long.

I'm saving one bottle of it and Romane Machotte for later consumption. How long would you say is just before too long to wait?

Sometimes it pays to be a little prescriptivist about the meanings of words. A little.

You seem to have learned to interpret her "probably" quite perfectly. Non-standard usage, it seems.

Here. We talk to each other. Many people think that social media can't support these conversations, but they can. Also, I don't know one can question everything before betting their lives on it. It seems to be necessary to bet, then question, then bet, then question...

I’m so sad to have learned that Jerry Weinberg passed away earlier this week. I learned so much. He change my life. I wouldn’t have written my books if it weren’t for him. I wasn’t the only one. RIP.

Does there exist a free-thinker/irreligious organization on that doesn't wallow in mutual righteousness and self-importance? I'd like to find such a community, but I worry about the prevalence of dickishness. (Sorry.)

Try replacing "I need X in order to Y" with "I don't know how to get Y without X". Now you can search for alternative ways to get Y instead of wasting your energy convincing the other person that they don't need X. Right now, in their context, they need X.
