Well that was a bit scary. My initrd failed to assemble my RAID array after a power outage. I had updated my kernel from 5.0.1 to 5.4.7 and apparently 5.4 now needs "raid0.default_layout=2" in the boot options. There is data corruption if you get the layout wrong, but apparently only if you have mismatched drive sizes (which I don't).

If you don't want to be a part of the Fediverse, then don't fucking federate! Don't get mad if someone replies to you. You can mark a post followers-only. You not understanding the UI doesn't make me a douche bag, it makes you an ignorant asshole.

You know what I miss. 1990s era emulation and retro gaming sites:
Dave's classic was the place for learning about Bleem, UltraHLE, Nestical and all the other really amazing emulation tech of that era.
Children, by nature, are keen, passionate and curious. What was referred to as laziness is often merely an awakening of sensitivity, a psychological inability to submit to certain absurd duties, and a natural result of the distorted, unbalanced education given to them. This laziness, which leads to an insuperable reluctance to learn, is, contrary to appearances, sometimes proof of intellectual superiority and a condemnation of the teacher.
