uninteresting tech problems 

Now my laptop started interpreting some key presses as two, but with different letters - c becomes cf, b becomes bk, etc., even in a live boot environment, so it's a hardware problem (how does that even happen?). Seems like I really do need a new one. Might as well get one of those fancy 2-in-1 systems so that I can sell my Android tablet. I need something with a digital pen that feels good to write (and ideally also draw) with because I will use it every day to take notes and do homework, but there seems to be very little information on which models have good Linux support. Any recommendations?

Should I do my homework that is due tomorrow or buy a new VPS to self host all kinds of services I don't need?

Apparently you can insert anime drawings into your scientific papers and still get published.

Feeling a bit sluggish and on edge at the same time lately. Perhaps I will try cutting back on coffee for a while.

So in the String Theory version of the path integral you don't sum over all possible paths but over all possible topologies the world sheet (= the surface the string traces as it moves through space and time) could take between start and end point. I bet topologists didn't see that coming when they invented their field.

I deleted Reddit from my phone because it was a time sink (and also have become increasingly aware that their algorithms push corporate interests and not those of the people). But now I joined the fediverse and it is a new time sink...

Blew some compressed air in there and it works now? Let's see for how long

Touchpad suddenly doesn't work, and keyboard stops working too a few minutes after booting, even in a live USB environment. Wish I could repair my laptop but I have no idea what kind of hardware failure could cause this.
