    I had someone who had her dual monitors set up backwards (i.e. to go from right monitor to left you had to move the mouse off the right side of the monitor) for a solid year. When I asked her why she didn't ask anyone about it she said she didn't think it could be fixed and just got used to it.

    And now they don't want it switched because they'd have to relearn it, right?

Nothing mentioned in Office365 portal/service center. But luckily one of my colleagues had MSFT365Status on twitter and the issue was reported there.

    I think I might be trying to learn too many new things at once. I'm trying to use lando to set up a dead simple api server for local development, but between lando, nginx, and docker, I'm not sure where my problem lies.

    My lando project is a lemp stack and I'm trying to set it up such that when I go to <lando-url>:<port>/api/foo, I'm served /api/index.php?q=foo.

    My lando file:
    name: project
    services:
      app:
        type: php:7.2
        via: nginx
        ssl: true
        webroot: web
        config:
          server: config/nginx.conf
    

    config/nginx.conf:
    # based on http://brainspl.at/nginx.conf.txt
    
    {{#if NGINX_DAEMON_USER}}{{#if NGINX_DAEMON_GROUP}}
    user {{NGINX_DAEMON_USER}} {{NGINX_DAEMON_GROUP}};
    {{/if}}{{/if}}
    
    worker_processes  auto;
    
    error_log  "{{NGINX_LOGDIR}}/error.log";
    pid        "{{NGINX_TMPDIR}}/nginx.pid";
    
    events {
        worker_connections  1024;
    }
    
    http {
        include       mime.types;
        default_type  application/octet-stream;
    
        fastcgi_buffers 16 16k;
        fastcgi_buffer_size 32k;
    
        add_header X-Frame-Options SAMEORIGIN;

                        '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';
    
        access_log  "{{NGINX_LOGDIR}}/access.log";
    
        # no sendfile on OSX
        sendfile        on;
    
        tcp_nopush     on;
        tcp_nodelay       off;
    
        #keepalive_timeout  0;
        keepalive_timeout  65;
        gzip on;
        gzip_http_version 1.0;
        gzip_comp_level 2;
        gzip_proxied any;
        gzip_types text/plain text/css application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss text/javascript;
    
        ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
    
        map $http_x_forwarded_proto $lando_https {
          default '';
          https on;
        }
    
        map $http_x_forwarded_proto $http_user_agent_https {
          default '';
          https ON;
        }
    
      include "{{NGINX_CONFDIR}}/vhosts/*.conf";
    
      # HTTP Server
      server {
        # port to listen on. Can also be set to an IP:PORT
        listen {{NGINX_HTTP_PORT_NUMBER}};
    
        rewrite ^/api/(.*)$ /api/index.php?q=$1 last;
    
        location /status {
          stub_status on;
          access_log   off;
          allow 127.0.0.1;
          deny all;
        }
      }
    }
    

    This is the default nginx conf file from the lando documentation with the exception of the rewrite at the end, but I've never come close to getting it working. I can visit <lando-url>:<port>/api/index.php?q=foo and it works fine, so I know that's not the problem.

    I've also tried
    location ~ /api/ {
      rewrite ^.*$ /api/index.php?q=$1 permanent;
    }
    

    but it doesn't work either.

    Should either of those work? I've read the lando documentation a hundred times for PHP and nginx configuration and I can't tell if lando isn't using my config file or if the rewrite is wrong, or something else.

    Hmm. I found this:

    app_nginx_1 | DEBUG ==> 'nginx.conf' not found. Applying bitnami configuration...

    So I think the lando documentation must be wrong. Which sucks, because I can't find anything that suggests the right way.

    What is the full path to nginx.conf? can you specify that full path in the lando file instead of just config/nginx.conf (e.g. /home/delzhand/config/nginx.conf or whatever it is).

    But everything he bought always had the latest and greatest processor in it, and he never let the company spare any expense when it came to his machine at all.

    This is exactly it. Let me take you back to 2006, with the release of Windows Vista. So, Vista was/is not as bad as people remembered, but the problem was that in 2006, it ran like ass on anything less than a $1500 windows computer. and in 2006 every windows computer, whether it be $500 or $1500, was a cheap plastic box that felt like trash. Where Macs were made with high quality plastics (the white plastic macbook felt great), or Aluminum/metal and had fantastic build quality. So, if you wanted to spend $1200-1500 on a computer around then, Macs were just made better, and were worth the premium. Even with Windows 7 and the birth of the ultrabook, the Macbook Air was just built a little better, and a little nicer, for generally the same ballpark price as an ultrabook. I have a 2011 11" Macbook air, and while I don't use it on a regular basis anymore, I pull it out every so often when I need to look at something Mac OS related. If it wasn't for the fact that the screen is only 1366x768 and bezel-tastic, that machine is still very viable today. It's still pretty fast, the keyboard is great, and I love the trackpad. It's a genuinely good piece of hardware.

    Apple cashed in at exactly the right time, and they got a generation of computer buyers to think that apple products are better. combine that with aggressive marketing of "well if you have an iPhone, it just makes sense to have a mac" and you get people that kept buying macs.

    Nowadays, Windows ulttrabooks are cheaper, better, and are way smarter buys. the current mac lineup trades on name only. but if you've been buying macs since 2007, it's really hard to switch. Or, the real dirty little secret, the average person doesn't need more than a $300 chromebook anymore, and that's the real threat, both to apple and microsoft.

    It also helped that Apple has been aggressively marketing to schools and children since their early days. Selling cheap Apples IIs and later, iMacs to schools got entire generations hooked on Apple products.

    I agree because frankly I don't want to be involved in most people's home pc purchasing decisions, and that's the easiest way through that conversation.

    Also there's several chromebook linux distros out there, so if they get interested there's that too.

    And really, people use their phone for 90% of their computing now anyway. the people in this thread are likely not in that demographic, but the average person just users their phone, and only uses a laptop/computer for work/specialized tasks. My mom has been iPad only since about 2012 at home. It does what she needs.

    Hell, even for me, for truly personal use, I could use a chromebook for 90% of what I do on a computer outside of gaming. A $300 chromebook is more than enough for almost all of my "couch computing" needs. The only/main reason I still have a windows laptop is that a couple years ago there was one streaming video website that i use *a lot* on a laptop that didn't play nice with chrome os for whatever reason, and it was enough that it was a dealbreaker for me. I'm sure that's resolved by now, and when I do need to replace a laptop, a chromebook is more than enough.

    Any printer released in the last couple years should fire right up once your printer is on your network. I've had trouble with printers shared from other devices but that's been a mess lately anyway.

    I've got a cheap b&w Brother laser printer at home. The best thing about toner is that it never dries out. I've had the same starter cart sice I got it back in 2013. I mostly use it for printing out important forms that have to be be on paper.

    The best use I've found for it is getting a high quality scan of my best signature to stick on forms before I print them out. It saves so much time being able to fill out and sign digital forms before handing them off.
