Oh god.  This.  Yes, you are correct.  And that is definitely a problem.  I've encountered that very thing before.

Running Mint v19 on one of my work machines, and I noticed that often the hard drive would be running constantly, slowing the machine down to a crawl.  Twice, it even crashed.  I never crashed a working Linux machine before.

Took some googling, but . . . the problem was that the LibreOffice free office suite version I have by default operates in a Java Runtime Environment.  Which you can just opt out of by clicking a box, if you know about it.

Instantly solved the problem.  :eyeroll:

A couple actual results

You could be one of those shopping consultants.  Purchasing agents.  Whatever they call them now.  Expenditure director?  Acquisition Officer.



edit:  I still do tags manually.  And poorly.

How fucking shit is Amazon these days?

I go to Amazon.  I enter the phrase "sugar-free chocolate syrup" into the search function.

Thirty-six results on the first page: 

- twenty kinds of coffee (some "mocha")

- four artificial "chai tea" flavorings

- three kinds of Perrier (none chocolate, for better or worse)

- three units of Coffee-Mate artificial creamer, in two flavors, neither chocolate

- one bulk unit of Pure Leaf iced tea in single-serve bottles

- one Torani syrup pump

- one bag of matcha tea powder

- one honey dispenser

- one set of bottles for "writing" with latte foam

- one countertop sno-cone machine


FOR TREMBLING WALRUS FUCK'S SAKE, AMAZON

Why am I paying for Prime, again?  :cyber:
