dang i went to the store to pick up an ethernet cable and accidentally grabbed a streaming internet cable 🤦

Say no to pointless RGB and yes to NIC activity lights. Didn't BeBox machines have CPU load indicator lights on the case? Functional activity lights can still look cool but also serve a purpose!

(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

I know this isn't going to happen because reasons but wouldn't it be nice if we all just switched to GMT or UTC? Am I mad?

If Microsoft agrees to kill Internet Explorer now I will agree to use Bing for an entire month and I'll even sneak it into every convo I can (e.g. "Who was the second president of the U.S.?? I'll Bing it!!")
