Imitation is the foundation of all human learning.

Whether you're learning to speak a language, play an instrument or program a computer, imitation will be a big part of it.

Nobody should feel bad about imitating others when learning something new. 🤓👍

Hugh-Jainis has invited you to chat: "I'd love to join your server."

I've decided on third-party hosting for our Java server. No whitelist for now, while we wait for 1.17.


I need some people to log into our Java server for load testing. max of 10 people, no whitelist at the moment. Here's the IP:port info

Thanks in advance if you can stop by and spend some time there!

Oooo kaaaaay. Let's try another question. So far though, either you guys aren't very helpful or I'm not asking the right way.

It's probably me right?

Best way to backup a Linux workstation? The ability to re-install and then shoot the backed up file structure back in place is what I'm looking for.

Hey all you penguin herders! Is there a way that I can restrict my package manager to only update to version N-1 of any given package?

I'm sure that depends on the package manager and I'm completely ignorant of how they differ, so if someone can let me know if I have any options, that would be awesome :D

@thewismit ...rainbows and glitter. The glitter is important. It contains properties of reverse-entropy. If at some point in your life have the blessed honor of walking through the sparkling cloud of a unicorn fart, the glitter will grant you the power to negate the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
