    Half tempted to just link him to the WSL documentation and say "install and use this instead if you really want to use Windows".
    After awhile you've really just gotta start putting boundaries. Like having him only ask you questions on really specific things that you can answer simply.

    Otherwise you're gonna get stuck repeatedly having to walk him through everything.

    That's normally my MO but when he starts the conversation by asking "do you know how to configure nginx" I thought his questions would be about something a little more complex like "how do you proxy to a different application," not "how do you digest error messages because I cloned some random's GitHub repo and didn't bother to change environment variables?"

    Before FF57, my firefox kept crashing every day. Just got a firefox has quit error message.


    Now with FF57, it was only the Facebook tab that crashed. I wonder why though, is it because of Ghostery and uBlock blocking so many ads on facebook and it keeping pushing them to me that it crashes or what.
    I don't know about Facebook in particular but some sites seem to have serious issues. For example Youtube for me spams the console with errors so freaking hard that I can't open the web dev tools at all or it'll totally lock it up.

    For example this is a minute worth of errors according to Firefox's command line function (shift+F2): (To be fair this is both errors and warnings though.)
    And even just that function still makes Firefox basically unusable while it's lagging. I'm not sure if this is because Youtube is just that shitty or if it's Magic Actions, Ghostery, or uMatrix causing issues.

    How do you guys deal with peers who lean on you a little too much? Got a buddy who is otherwise a competent web developer who is trying to use nginx, but can't seem to wrap his head around the fact that he's still running Windows and needs to use Windows paths for the root paths directives, despite the error message blatantly complaining about the Unix-style path not resolving.

    I don't know how to call him an idiot without straight up calling him an idiot
    People that don't read shit that appears on screen can't be saved.

    Just set up a LMGTFY shortcut on his desktop.

    Problem solved.

    I'm away from my computer at the moment but I'll post it tonight. It's not perfect and it has the possibility to delete your files if the target directory doesn't exist

    Edited:

    So use at your own risk. Maybe make a backup beforehand the first time just in case.

    https://pastebin.com/Yz6AsEaa

    Place in downloads folder.
    You will need to modify it so it matches your directory, unless your name is Lee of course. I'm new to Python and programming so it isn't very good.

    Word of warning. Make sure the file destination is correct. I made a type (video instead of videos) and it renamed all the video files to "video", overwriting each one until it reached the end. I ended up with one video file with no extension. Use at your own risk!

    I don't even understand how you guys need unlimited data though.

    I use my phone for Waze, Spotify, tethering for work, messaging, a lot of absentminded news site / reddit / 4chan browsing and I don't even crack 2GB/mo even tho I have an unlimited plan

    It just seems like anywhere I'd want to even use mass quantities of data is just some place with wifi or no reception anyway
    I tend to use 4-6GB a month and it really depends on how often I go out to places without wifi. Commute on a bus always burns through a lot because you're bored.
