After running for 20 hours memtest86 found more bad memory regions spanning from 800-ish MB to almost 3G, I've tried the following command
But it doesn't seem to blacklist the right amount of memory -- after system boots, top still shows 29GB available instead of expected 28GB.
I believe I need to move on to use BADRAM, but it would require another overnight memtest86 run as I didn't bother to take a photo of the last run in BADRAM format.

Good news -- the obscure Scottish sitcom I watched a few years ago got picked up by Netflix.
Even better news -- the new season got released last year.
The best news -- they have finally changed their name from 'Scrotal Recall' to 'Lovesick'
When I mentioned the series name to any woman, the universal reaction was slight disgust -- no matter how much I tried to explain that it's in fact a charming romantic comedy.
I appreciate puns, but the name hurt the series as much as it hurt me.
I tried working on the video with the boot settings above and everything seems to be fine for a while... until I tried to render a video that I've been working on in kdenlive.
After some deliberation, the computer, predictably crashed.
So I left memtest86 running overnight, and it has found more bad areas.
I left computer on in case any more bad memory turn up.
In the evening I will try these boot settings
#badmemory saga continues.
The memory modules have lifetime warranty and before replacement arrives I'm going to try to block off bad memory from use.
I tried several articles with different memap parameters, and the following seems to work
Top shows less memory available.
MiB Mem : 31851.9
This article is about something completely different but gives examples that actually work in my case.

Bad memory, or the reason why my video editor kept crashing the system.

Here's another argument about how deb packaging is way superior to rpm -- yum-versionlock plugin doesn't let me pin an obsolete package, it would upgrade it anyway.

@garfiald also, LMAO at those journals.
Open Quantitative Sociology & Political Science (OQSPS) is a vanity journal started by Emil O. W. Kirkegaard because he was fed up that real journals kept rejecting his manuscripts...

Today I saw an Audi with no snow tires stuck in the snow. I felt sorry for the guy, but I also chucked at all the radio commercials preaching that you absolutely have to have 4-wheel drive for winter.
That's a park next door. I should go cross country skiing there.

I go to hackernews time to time, and usually I avoid reading comments to articles that I know will steer controversy, because I know HN bend.
However, I didn't expect such vitriol from commenters there about firings at BuzzFeed.
Besides general empathy towards the people going through not very pleasant thing in their lives, just sheer vitriol and disdain towards journalists working for BuzzFeed is astounding.
I've noticed this little indicator in System Tray. This is a great idea that I'd never really thought about.
Just pressing caps lock on and off then watching this tray icon show up and disappear brings me such joy.
