With immense thanks to @Arctic for making this piece possible, as it features him and I ^,==,^

I love you so much <3

I have a chest infection and possibly pneumonia soon at this rate :ms_sick:​ 

Nazis are not subhuman. Make no mistake. They are every bit as human as you or I. This is why they must be destroyed. Because they have just as much ability as you or I to not be nazis. They hold that capability, but instead they rationalize, justify and choose to be one every single day. They aren't less human than any of us. That is why they are so disgusting.

Allegedly #Microsoft loves Open Source now. So the #FSF wants them to release #Windows7 under a FOSS license after support for this release has ended.

people didn't really understand Idiocracy. the real message of that film was *turning the pages of a Red Bull-stained notebook* I'm smart because I watched Idiocracy, whereas other people are stupid

@phobos_dthorga not at one point in history, right now. It's free software, you can just burn it to a CD and sell it to people! This particular publisher sells an awful lot of free software, I've seen a Supertux Kart retail release. At least their OpenOffice disks come with some kind of video tutorial so ai guess they add some value to that

The Matrix, but people realize they’re in a simulation because they do zoom fingers on a book and it works

This is your semi-regular reminder that you can purchase an 8ft wide by 8.5ft high by 15 ft long repurposed steel freight container with your choice of cargo doors or rollup door for under three thousand dollars, if you can find someplace to put it.

picked up this copy of VLC Media Player for just 10€, what a steal

#HamRadio power supply has been repaired! I'm also sick 😫 

Just did some before my brother woke up, since his notebook's power supply interferes heavily on the HF bands.

I was able to send out some pictures with the callsign in that time and receive two back! ^,==,^

It is today that we mark the appreciation of Dragonkind! 

geforce now has bad input issues with controllers for two reasons I think:

1. they have a big dead zone defined for how they take controller input which is bad for obvious reasons, I have to swing the stick all the way in order for the viewport to move on the character

2. even on low input latency mode it's far worse than google stadia or xcloud

I have seen far too many artists gone on hold for unknown periods of time because their sole computer is a laptop.

Seriously, people, most laptops are not made to last, unfortunately. If you need reliable access to computing power, you really need a desktop. Modular, upgradeable, easy to repair by yourself, or the local techie.

@phobos_dthorga, Lutris is a wine wrapper that looks like steam's grid game list. It uncomplicates the process of installing some games.

Running AAA games at launch is a bit hard... sometimes you can get a ban if playing online (see Battlefield 5 case).

I, personally, don't miss any particular AAA title Windows would run; the games I play are either linux-native or runs through wine with no major problem.

Dual-booting, as @ayron mentioned, still is an option.
