Pinned toot

Hi! My name is Manuel. I struggle since forever to become the person that I actually am, and to finally throw out that full-time autopilot that’s just killing time by watching youtube videos and fantasizing about doing stuff I never end up doing.
I don’t think there’s a better place for me to achieve this mission than Merveilles.town, which made me move here.

Sometimes I manage to create something, but the struggle is far from over. I am happy to have you along for the ride! :)

I think music-wise I need to start on a simpler level. Like Irie Revoltés, who wrote songs in a mix of German, English and French, so context in other languages is provided per song.

It’s super cool how supportive y’all are of learning and practicing languages 💜

I can’t get myself to practice French using language learning websites anymore. I think it’s time for me to switch to consuming french content online for practice and maybe start with the basics of another language.

A question for all of you who learned Japanese: What have been good resources for your learning? What did you do that was helpful learning the language?

Otherwise I'm extremely happy with choosing micro-ITX and in hindsight, I would have chosen an even smaller PC case. So fricking cute.

Also the BIOS reset on this board is a pain to access. It's two jumper pins below the I/O shield, which is held by four screws, two of which are *on the bottom side of the mainboard*. This was also hard to find, I actually am considering doing a writeup so people can skip the youtube video crap.

Okay, PC parts arrived yesterday, and everything seems to work. Everything but the NVME SSD 😒 I put it in the slot three times without success, and even in the secondary slot it didn't work. I'm currently waiting for a replacement before finishing assembly.

Mh, I let it cool down a bit and responded like an adult, so now both parties are trying to look for a suitable solution.

“It was at this moment that he realised, he fucked up.”

Me: “Do you like computers?”

Child: “no.”

Our child is so wise already!

I feel like I owe you these. Most of the time for me it's rather a question of "when" than "if" anyways, if I'm completely honest.

(Happy to translate some German for you, just ask.)
