I hate hammers and screwdrivers. Well, not exactly hate them because they come with every toolbox it seems but I want to complain about how people use them. People are always using these tools to build things that are dangerous. The planks on the deck are loose, the shelves in the bookcase are wobbly, people try and open cans with them, etc. We should change their names to "nail-driver" and "threaded-metal-cylinder-turner" until we can fix these tools to alert the user when they are using them incorrectly or at least get the hammer to countersink, putty, and sand.

No offense ichimunki, I'm in your camp on this, I just think that you shot at the wrong criminal. People write shitty HTML with any tool, CGI can't make things worse and frequently makes things better.

That is a ++ to ichimunki in case I was equally unclear =)

    [Corion]: ... that's not that great for quasi-disposable devices ;)
    [Eily]: can't you just remote connect to the linux machine ?
    [marto]: IIRC the hiemdal suite made life much easier on windows, and people on XDA developers put out released of windows only pages for adb that made it less of a pain
    [marto]: Eily you can't remote connect the physical device via USB ;)
    [Corion]: Eily: Sure, that's what I do, but some things you need to do on the Android device directly, like when navigating the bootloader :-)
    [Eily]: marto you just need a longer cable :P
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, but I'm somewhat wary of installing random USB drivers downloaded from mega.nz , Google Drive or whatever, so Linux wins there due to there being no conflicts and me just having to edit one text file in the worst case, to add the USB vendor
    [hippo]: Long USB cable FTW.
    [Corion]: Eily: I've thought of that, but I don't like running long cables through the appartment because sooner or later I'll trip over it, pulling at least one device off its stand :)
    [marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
