if its domain joined check the AD and/or azure ad machine accounts for the recovery key. if its not domain joined and you are logging in with a microsoft account, then check there.

also this is what you get for using linux.

hereís the bad news: I still do that approaching the top of the hill. I can sleep 12 hours and sleep the next night easily. but.

hereís the good news: youíre heading towards a career where you can make that work and you can make them Understand. so get your school poo poo done and youíll be fine. also, do a situp once in a while

idk sweet gently caress all about AD (doubt i'd have permissions anyway), and the laptop is joined to the work domain but i hadn't signed onto anything MS yet (except zoom i guess if SSO counts)

eh well i didn't have anything on it yet so whatever, lesson of some kind learned (not)

Situp? Ew.

Squats.

Though a dumbbell fly every so often turned out to be the secret tech for me.

If you're going to do one, it's squats.

Otherwise you build a full regimen and leave situps out of it. They're not good for you.

agreed, these are excellent exercises and you don't ever have to go heavy, an empty bar or a light plate will give you plenty of benefits

I was kind of into chess for a little while when I was like 12 and even tried playing in a couple tournaments but I found it too stressful.

I also got into go for a little bit after college but I just kind of realized that it's impossible for me to just enjoy that kind of thing as a hobby that I spend a moderate amount of time on for fun, and I'd rather not do it all then have it turn into a huge time sink that I'm obsessed with and probably made unhappy by.

I respect people who are actually able to enjoy chess in a not dumb way though.

Hey, posting is posting. You emptyquote, I turn my monitor on; what's the difference?
i recently started playing chess and am enjoying puzzles. i feel like I've gotten much better at visualizing a series of moves, but i still miss a lot. however, actually playing a game, from the start, against a real person? awful, it takes so long to get somewhere interesting that i can feasibly think out

ooh good point. i think i'd enjoy the puzzles. maybe doing those will make the regular game more fun.

im pretty bad at chess but as far as board games go it's pretty ok. Rules are simple enough and you're mostly strategizing instead of doing rules lawyering
