Take too hot for anywhere but here: apoliticality is a privilege.
If you want to "keep politics out of this space" then you live with the conditions that lofty political decisions will have no impact on your life. You don't live a life where the whims of some talking head can determine weather or not you have a place to sleep tomorrow, or when the next time you'll get a meal will be. To be apolitical is to have no concern for the goings-on of the status quo, which means that it benefits you.

@robertwgehl @bgcarlisle I've been doing this for a while now (couple of year? I forget) and while the bridge is not a great piece of software, otherwise the experience is pretty good.

There's also nice off hand comments like

"When being consulted university lawyers suggest that Mary do X, but instead Mary does Y."

I didn't know we could do that!

Of course, there's no further information on when and why you can just ignore the lawyers.

Just received an advice email from our university's financial services and it was written in comic sans.

Website update 

@albin I've used Linux for about a decade, but honestly, I have no idea. Apparently not bad enough that I would have noticed.

@Cyborgneticz Even if you go for this route, I suggest using a manager for all the texts you collect. My Zotero library currently has 2336 texts and without a manager with great search it would be impossible to find that one text about that one thing I kinda remember reading at one point.

@albin I run Elementary on one of my laptops and its pretty great. The touchpad on that laptop is not great, so it's hard to evaluate that part, but otherwise everything just works (including some of the problems you had).
