All events have come to a halt in my life now that I’m having motherboard and power supply problems.
(BTW, I’ve been using my Fedora laptop for some time and have been pleasantly surprised about how everything “just works.” My only complaint is that the display doesn’t seem as bright as it should).
When the dust has settled, I’ll have to catch up here. For now, I’ll admit a guilty pleasure: reading bad reviews of awful movies in highbrow publications (NYT, etc). The reviewers show their resentment at having to review the damn film by making their reviews particularly caustic. See AO Scott’s Poseidon Adventure. My fave is Deuce Bigelow’s European Adventure, a terrible movie even among stinkers.
