*slaps top of old computer* it doesn't have enough power to browse the web, but it's still alright for gaming

no, journalists, $SBC_COSTING_5X_RPI is not a "competitor" or an "alternative" to a Raspberry Pi

is it just me, or is there something a bit off about the name "JetBrains"? like, yes, i totally want to use this thing that implies grey matter being expelled at sufficient speed to generate thrust

"I was with a busload of people who are ufologists, who believe in aliens. I personally don't. I believe in UFOs, but that's not hard to do. That's unidentified flying objects.

Since the syslog component of systemd, journald, does not flush its logs to disk during normal operation, these logs will be gone when the machine is shut down abnormally (power loss, kernel lock-ups, ...). In the case of kernel lock-ups, it is pretty important to have some kernel logs for debugging. Until journald gains a configuration option for flushing kernel logs, rsyslog can be used in conjunction with journald.

ha. figures. fucking systemd

Pointers welcome!
