I'm Aaron, a Media Arts / Technology teacher for a K-8 Creative & Performing Arts Academy.
Before I did this, I was a Visual Arts teacher.
I'm very much into #DIY, #STEM, #STEAM, #DnD, #photography, the #Maker movement, and the idea that artists should be fairly compensated for the work they do (vs reposting said work without even attribution).
My politics lean left, but I don't talk about that much here.
I'm a widower.
I talk about games on @Crash.
Things I Try To Not Do (A non-comprehensive list)
*"Follow-for-follow." Life's too short to clutter my timeline.
*Post, boost, or favorite profanities. Yes, even the ones included in super-insightful posts. My students can find me.
*Post, boost, or favorite copyright infringement or endorsements of the same. Copyright law needs reform, sure, but it is still used to protect artists. If you're punching down and up at the same time, You're still punching down.
PineBook Pro (+ & -)
+I have successfully installed Manjaro on my #PineBook's eMMC.
-Any time I click the button to look for software updates or add/remove software I get logged out, both on my account and the root account.
+Typing sudo pacman -Sys in Terminal handled the one update I had, and sudo pacman -Syu [appname] installs software.
-App to adjust system settings randomly crashes, though.
-I'd try forcing a reinstall of crashing apps but I don't know their actual names.
Upon further inspection it appears my microSD card is done for. 64 GB card can't be formatted and Windows seems to think it has less than a GB of space, usable or otherwise.
Third card I've had die since getting the PineBook. 4th if you include the one snapped in half after the cat knocked my card reader off the desk.
The good news is I got them cheap. The bad news is I think I know why they were cheap, now.
I've been enjoying Manjaro Arm on my #pinebookpro ... except for the random update every month or so that breaks it to the point where I have to do a full reinstall.
I'm thinking this latest meltdown is a good excuse to try a different distro.
@theartguy I read this to my partner, a nurse, she said “don’t forget watery, lumpy, and faucety”
I have no idea what to do with that. Faucety Jazz.
And here's the latest version of WhatCampaign!
Today was our first #DnD club meeting with students DMing. We had two co-DMs and they did a FANTASTIC job.
I got to play a kobold paladin named Mox. The other players included an 8 year old half-elf bard who played the recorder and had the noble background (the servants were rebranded as babysitters) and an 85 year old human wizard who was a folk hero because he saved a bunch of ants in a tree.
We had a lot of fun.
