Computer witch moment
@roxie i remember in middle school when i became the de facto tech person and installed ubuntu on a powerpc mac that they were trying to repurpose
i was so high that day
it would've been a prouder day still if anyone could've known it was us without us getting expelled
there was also the time on a band trip a few years later when the two local girls our hotel room roommate knew well enough to invite over (!) were more impressed with us alligator-clipping our laptop onto the internet via the model 2500 knockoff room phone, than with the idea of sleeping with him (it was ok, he thought it was cool as hell too)
yes we're old, but also damn, those were the days
@roxie sincerely whenever I go to the coffee shop for an hour between jobs and I have some reason to use the terminal and there are people who can theoretically see my screen, I feel all-powerful even though I am still little baby programmer
@roxie I was helping my roommate with a computer issue the other day, and she was watching me trying to get a command line to work (on a Windows 10 device). I finally figured it out, and muttered "I have to go deeper" and ran it with powershell (which worked) and then told her I had to go "past the command line" 😅
@roxie i don't know much about computers other than - other than the one we got at my house, my mom put a couple games on there -
@roxie power now is a Smart Phone or access to Big Data of Amazon, Google, Facebook ...
