This is my new problem in Linux:

Basically, my computer is physically locking up when I attach certain USB devices. Hard locks are not common within Linux, especially when the hard lock disables even magic keys (Alt-SysRq, R, E, I, S, U, B).

I could be having a hardware problem. We'll see what I can find!

To fix...

Fill up bathtub, take computer, throw in. It is preferred that neither you nor Linnea be in the tub at the time of impact.

linux is cool, but it makes my brain hurt.
