This has a very low chance of working, but you might be able to get an advanced tab in BIOS with the advice from PiterGeek here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/How-to-get-advanced-bios/td-p/8095143

I also saw some reports that the advanced tab can be locked at the factory with a password. There’s really no way around that.

This kind of protecting our computers from our own actions is where right to repair becomes important. I definitely won’t be looking at HP next time I buy a computer. Also, sorry you hit a wall here. I’ve put linux on a few different computers when windows crapped out. I’m not a tech genius, and it never was any kind of headache to get done. If it wasn’t for HP it would’ve been an easy win for you.

Looking online, some HP’s have this option removed entirely, so you might be at a roadblock that HP decided to build into your computer.

Does anyone know a distro that doesn’t mind being installed on RST?

Honest question - Would self hosting a VPN (for the purpose of bypassing your ISP) even do anything? The end point would still need an ISP (that you’ve signed up for) and would be just as exposed as you are from your original connection, right?

Both Buttocks

Lol, like just saying buttocks wasn’t enough. I need to know how many to make it sound right. 1? 3? Do I need to call in a friend?

Totally, I’ve always pictured myself as a raptor when I poop.

I guess it is time to be blunt. You don’t know the basic definition of veganism. You don’t have a firm grasp on how life is classified (you are right mushrooms aren’t plants, but no one said they were). You don’t seem to fully understand proteins and metabolism. None of that is a problem. We are all learning all the time. You could gain that knowledge by taking a minute to do an internet search to see if you might not be completely right. These are things that I am very familiar with and I still did a quick check for changing definitions and new science before I responded.

edit: grammar

Wow, doubling down for some reason. Not eating animals doesn’t mean only plants, and yeast is a fungus. Yep the one in beer, bread, extracts, etc. It is a single celled fungus and vegan by absolutely everyone’s definition.

And there are schools just to the SE that they’ll have to bus the kids to because no one put in a walking path. The grosser thing about this for me is the destruction of wetlands caused by the sprawl. All of the open water around there is where they dug from to get enough dirt to bring the houses/roads above the water table. I am guessing it was originanly one big, flat, flood preventing, wildlife supporting, groundwater recharging, surface water cleaning swamp.

I’ve done that, but it does get in the way of enjoying them for me. I only eat one every couple of years so peeling isn’t much of an issue. A little off topic, but the one I get the most push back on is eating an apple core along with the apple. I only do it when I know I would otherwise have to carry a wet core garbage with me for a while.

Just thought of it but have you tried a factory reset? Maybe something just got off kilter and that would give you a blank slate.

Yeah, that is awful. I got lucky and mine wasn’t. The next phone I buy I will know to make sure it isn’t unlockable. Actually I will probably just go for a phone with a good OS installed already.

Once you’re finished with whatever projects you choose you can donate it to a homeless or domestic violence shelter.

The Lineage site had decent instructions for my phone

Edit: You only have to do this once, so take time to read and understand the instuctions before you start.

I did some quick research because I wouldn’t consider buying one that needed wifi access or app control to work. It looks like some can work w/o ever being connected. The functions are limited like not being able to just clean a single room. Probably down to use case if you need the app functions or not.

Edit: If anyone has real experience it would be great to hear.

You’re right about being exposed to instant firing, but generally being short staffed on short notice hurts the company. For random garnished wages or whatever I depended on labor law protections. It is literally illegal to do what you describe in the places I have worked. There are probably less extreme examples that the law doesn’t protect against that a contract could, but what incentive does a company have to write protections for you into their contract? There are probably good contragts out there. I just personally don’t trust them.

I thought I would throw this out to everyone in an easy way after seeing this post https://lemmy.ca/post/76405

Looking for a new mobile OS

I have been running lineageOS on my OnePlus 2. I liked it, but Lineage has stopped supporting my phone. There are two options that I have been able to find as replacements - postmarketOS and /e/OS. Any thoughts on those or other recommendation? Anything that gets security updates, is open source, an…
