|“||I love to keep complacent people off balance. I can’t bear their complacency. Stupidity brings out violence in me, because I consider stupidity a choice. There’s a great difference between people who are stupid and people who are dumb. People who are dumb have been injured and there’s something soft and tender about their brain. If it’s permanent, it’s touching, it’s pathetic. People who are stupid made one wise decision in their lives, because if you’re stupid and you remain stupid, people have to come to you, have to deal with you; you’re the center of a great many energy transactions that you haven’t earned. If you can take the abuse, it’s a way of life. But it’s a way of life that poisons everything around you. So stupid people bring out my most unpleasant reactions and emotions. I will needle stupid people to the best of my ability.||”|

What a week. What a year. It has to start getting better.
Jackett stopped working on my Synology server for some reason, so I installed it on a Raspberry Pi. Good-to-go, now. Weird, and I can’t find any explanation for it. I really do this I'm going to go with a home lab version of a server, like FreeNAS, when my diskstation dies.
