    Anyway, this might be a very hard sell to an Apple "genius." Say you're trying to change the language and it's hanging on switch after DFU restore?

    Otiose means idle, right?

    I'm a nerd sort of. But I kind of procrastinate in my spare time. I attempt to learn but get frustrated easily if I don't understand at least something right away.

    But... NERDS RULE THE WORLD.

    Yes, yes it does. But there's a subtext of "serving no practical purpose" and "indolent" there too.

    Plus we are the ones that make nukes. We are the ones that make good computers. We are the ones that make the robots that make thr computers for us. We are the ones that... List goes on.
