    Hi all, I was using a wet microfiber cloth to wipe off some grime that wouldn't get off with a simple dusting, and was a bit worried about water damage.

    While dragging windows around and playing games I encounter stuttering shown in the video. I still haven't found a way to fix this. I am running 2 displays off of a thunderbolt 3 dock which would raise concerns but there is certainly enough bandwidth to support them. I have a Razer Blade 15...

    OK, so a few months ago I was running a discord.py (an async library) script in a while loop, and my [arch] computer sent me to a blank terminal. I didn't have much of a choice, so I did a manual reboot (pressed the power button until the computer turned off). Now, a few months later, I try...
