Dude I broke the hell out of my compooter today. At work, we couldn't get Windows Terminal to install since we can't use the Microsoft Store (sure I can temporarily enable it, but I didn't wanna), so I learned coping the actual files in the msibundlex to system32 worked like a charm.

I just did it that way at home, attempting to create a simple tutorial, and my computer went insane. UAC broke, and any potential fix needs UAC hahaha. I don't have another system available tonight, so.... The heck with it. Reinstalling windows for probably the 10th time on this laptop. Maybe this will fix the USB random disconnecting that has been plaguing me.

I'm still running 2013 install of Win7.
This thing survived motherboard changes and platform swap.
Gigabyte AM3 -> Asus AM3 -> Asrock LGA2011
Other hardware changes along the way, more displays, different GPU.

Reinstall after so many years would be painful to say the least.
All the things I added to it, custom tools and cmd paths required for compilers.
A lot of drivers required for professional software.

Games usually can run without install, just run the files.
But software is not so forgiving in many cases.
Recently I'm not really into gaming anymore.

Waiting for some proper title like Cyberpunk.
Gothic is the only thing I want to play right now.
Early 2000's classic that is a timeless classic in this part of the world.
Even today people develop mods for Gothic II which is just a sequel.
There are some big projects as well, some folks implemented DX11 for gothic to improve the graphics.

And memes

The teacher meant that if a monkey can use it then students shouldn't have any trouble using it.
But then there's also the image (saying it lightly) that americans are not the brightest people so the software has to be simple to use.
Ah yes, Polish people are the brightest, that's why they use American designed and built software and not their own. Logic. (y)

So far my pumpkins and watermalones are faring well. Corn is trashed, cucumbers and beans looked okay but I didn’t look closely at them.

In the eye currently, have been for the past two hours, storm is more or less stationary right now. Power has been out since 3amish, 60mph sustained not sure about gusts. Was forecasted to start dying down around 12 but based on current speed it’s gonna be a good while longer now.

Also turtles are filthy creatures. They’ve turned crystal clear water to soup in 12 hours.

He has a point. Americans are very stupid. Why else would 7 of the top 10 best universities in the world be in the US?

Blank space so it fits in the square.

that's not the right blue either. i can't remember what the right blue is. it's kinda greyish.
Yeah, I know. It was just an example to illustrate the amount of work involved using an app like Adobe Illustrator.

Shouldn't be too hard to find a copy of the original logo and use the eyedropper tool to fix that, even if the image they're using is in .svg format.

Ah yes, Polish people are the brightest, that's why they use American designed and built software and not their own. Logic. (y)
Doesn't mean I agree with it.

US was a free country as well as massive public and private investments.
Poland had 45 years of communism which didn't like advancements in the tech field. It was mainly the domain of USSR.
Planned economy required countries to share the market. Say USSR is making trains, Poland boats, Hungary buses etc.
If USSR says "you make this computer" then you make it, not much room for other western copycats (in this case IBM 360) or your own development.
There was the ЕС ЭВМ standard and computers had to follow it.
Over here the computer revolution happened in the 90's, before that it was mainly outdated tech only accessible to fortunate few.
Even in the 90's it was mainly 80's personal computers flooding from the west.

USSR while not keeping up with the west had more money and resources.
Computers were more common.
Those are the folks who helped out Intel in the 90's (look up who was working on Pentium and Itanium CPU's).
Also Russia seems to have excellent hackers.
Product of decades of education focused on STEM field.
Soviet countries in general had fairly high standards in education back then.
Elementary school had level similar to a modern High school.
You would have to go through some books from that period to notice how much was removed over the years.
I learned calculus from a 1959 book and was amazed by how good it was.

Nowadays the STEM field is underfunded.
My brother who studies law has much more funding than I do.
Scholarships, competitions with high prizes, you name it.

I don't have those, which is why I purchase my own test equipment in order to learn.
Even the available scholarschips (I only have one available) either pay nothing or are funded by a company (through 4 years I recall two).
That is you finish the studies and you are forced to work there for some time or you have to pay back 80% of it.

The funding problem was noticeable even at school level.
I entered a physics competiton and managed to reach the finale.
It was a competition at a regional level.
Prizes fund was whole 300PLN IIRC (90USD or so at the time).
Divide that on top 10 (who did get something) and you get nothing. Some lame stuff like a book and pendrive.
But hey, at least my photo and name are hanging in the school "hall of fame".

For say poetry competition it was a different story.
Laptops, tablets, digital cameras, you name it.
They could win amazing stuff.

Which is why I kind of dislike the humanist field.
Getting all the money but giving almost nothing in return.
Save for several "special" fields most end up doing jobs which are not even remotely connected to their field of study.
