@climagic In true CLI fashion, install f3 ("fight flash fraud") to check your flash drives:
$ apt install f3 # Debian/Ubuntu

My Thinkpad's keyboard space key stopped responding on one side, so I wanted to check what is underneath. Popped the key up - oh no! The construction inside flew apart. Checking stores, replacement keyboard costs €50. No way, need to get this working again. A pair of tweezers, light, magnifying glass, patience and 30min later I have my space bar working again. €50 saved 😄 There goes a nice evening, nothing done, time to sleep.
@hisham_hm some languages do this, e.g. with Spanner SQL  accesing items in arrays, you have to specify an OFFSET (zero based) or ORDINAL (one based), and both are supported at once, and you have to be explicit.

Did I mention tons of fun? 🙂 #linux #proton #remoteplay tested
