Bluecore is now officially dead, and only a miracle could bring it back to a usable state. During the next week I’ll be taking it to technical support, so the current condition will hopefully be temporary.
Some days ago, I came up with a joke in
##shadowm regarding a hypothetical “Reicore” laptop, which would have some awesome NVIDIA GPU and a quad-core processor. This is most likely not going to happen, yet I have reused the computer name on my new, temporary laptop, which used to belong to my father and was, in fact, bought exclusively for his use during 2010.
My main reasons for choosing “Reicore” as its hostname over another “<color>core” combination are the following:
- Like its namesake’s namesake*, Reicore is intended for backup purposes until Bluecore or a new laptop come to replace it.
- It’s a nice reminder so I don’t complain about inefficiencies in working computers again. That seems to bring bad luck.
