in reply to When I discuss scripting with family/friends, they...

I don't discuss it with them anymore. It's just not worth it, really. My friends are very non-technical, by and large, and ten seconds into any such talk, I get the MEGO stare (My Eyes Glaze Over).

[1nickt]: Ah, you got Linus' fave? With Ubuntu? 4k display?
[1nickt]: ( The 17" monster I just bought is for my wife, who doesn;t leave the house with it...)
[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
[1nickt]: Nice. So happy that Dells are still user-repairable. Unusual these days.
[1nickt]: I will certainly not be buying any more Macs.
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, or at least, I hopoe so ;)
