I’m happy to report that my “Linux drama” has ended (for the moment). See?
Unfortunately, this required me doing a factory reset of my machine, so I lost all my data – yeah, tease me all you want. That’s why you do backups, right? Fortunately, nothing I had was irreplaceable, with the exception of a few drafts I had written.
I did get rather frustrated with the process, but I know that that’s part of coding and using computers/smartphones in general. Can I get back to the dark web now? Sure. Let’s hope it doesn’t compromise my system.
At the moment, I’m going back to the terminal and attempting to reinstall some of the missing programs I had before. Easy, right? You would think so.
More specifically, I’m attempting to install HexChat, which is one of the IRC clients I liked, and the terminal is saying that the repository I’m trying to use doesn’t exist. I’m assuming that it’s just on a different repository, but I’m not sure which one that is. This is strange, because right before my system went down, I was using HexChat without any problems.
Is there another client I should be using? WeeChat, perhaps? (Oh no.)
My friends mess with me about being technically incompetent, but usually my problem is that I overthink things and get stuck on one or two steps – I think that’s the curse of coding in general.
Anyhow, it’s good to be back! Have any requests for posts? Please share.
