>>519 >password hint is fucking ":D" hahaha fucking nice >1 week later and she's still waiting F I've had a few close calls but never accidentally deleted anything more than a month of stuff. I recently went on a HDD buying spree and have like 16TB of storage now. However there was that one time when I was experimenting with Linux in 2009 and wiped all the metadata of my files when I copied them over from Windows. It's a minor thing but since I keep basically my whole life in digital format it can be a pain in the ass not being able to check metadata on an old project if I'm curious when I was working on it. When I first experimented with Linux I didn't know the "startx" command so I spent about a month just doing stuff from the commandline. Then one day I typed it in and was like "wtf this thing has a GUI?"
>>520 >When I first experimented with Linux I didn't know the "startx" command so I spent about a month just doing stuff from the commandline Wait, isn't startx supposed to run automatically? What Linux distro were you running and how long ago did you play with it?

>all my passwords are just my username backwards + 42069 I am above you fools, I never forget my passwords, even years later.

>>521 I was using Slackware, I think that's setup so that you need to manually configure your startup or you're stuck on commandline. And it was like 15 years ago. >>522 nonakaB42069 eh? brb hacking you

>>527 Fool! That was just an example number. As if I'd share the real number.
>>535 Fool! Now I know what number the password isn't

>>538 Fool! There are an infinite number of numbers. Infinity minus one is still infinity. As expected of the dumbest fairy.

>>541 >implying there are numbers greater than 1 million Nice try but I won't fall for your tricks anon
>>527 >Slackware >15 years ago That explains everything. Not only Linugs only became somewhat usable for newcomers with Ubuntu 10.04, but Slackware has never been known for being "friendly". >>522 I usually do a similar technique (same string of words + something different for each account), but I used something completely different for the HDD because hackers lol

>unplug computer and take it apart to blow the dust out with compressed air >put it back together >plug the monitor into the motherboard instead of the video card >spend two days completely baffled as to why nothing seems to work properly and even basic games lag to hell I may be dumb, but I'm also stupid At least I learned from it and the last time I made that mistake, I was immediate in checking that I plugged it in right and fixed it.

>>617 >plug the monitor into the motherboard instead of the video card I'm actually surprised it even let you start the OS without exploding. >I may be dumb, but I'm also stupid Hey, t least you didn't completely disassemble a laptop without paying attention to the location of the screws, causing 3 of them to get lost, others to force their way in and get swept out, and a couple of large screws in the wrong places to dent the plastic case of the laptop, nor did you get to blame a supposed "tech-savvy friend" to whom you "took the laptop to check".
