"Welcome to Magic School. Here is your schedule."
"Thanks! But..."
"Yes?"
"This is just 'Ethics' and 'Human rights' and things like that."
"Correct, that's the first year curriculum."
"Do we have to learn all this?"
"Of course! What do you think this is, software engineering?"

You have been visited by margaret hamilton. Fast code and moon landings will come to you but only if you boost this toot

@ConnyDuck I think I could create an account for you and suspend it if that's any help?

Three things you need to know about the universe 

1) It's big. Really big.
2) It doesn't officially have a name but people call it Bob.

People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

"I'd like to return my companion-bot, serial code JX99031."

"Sure; and could you describe the fault you encountered?"

@mxlinux while Proton is (probably) great, I don't quite see the point in using it to run Q3A - it already runs natively on Linux and as it's open source, I think it's also very actively maintained. (Other than Quake 4, which I just can't get to output sound on my Ubuntu 18.04 installation.)

I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.
