Cutting off your nose

Doctor, Doctor, my toe hurts.” (Doctor amputates patient’s leg, and his right hand and his nose into the bargain.) The solution to “my audio isn’t working right” is not “uninstall PulseAudio”. Nor is it to complain that your distro didn’t give you an “uninstall PulseAudio” button. Stop suggesting it. I ran into one small audio problem and half the responses to other people mentioning it were “you need to completely remove PulseAudio”. Stop recommending that to people. This has been a party political broadcast on behalf of the “there’s a time in the evolution of everything that works when it didn’t work” party.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
