you used to go on the internet and download cool things for your computer, because it was easier than buying them or going to your friends house. and then youd have some cool things on your computer that you didn't do before. thats definitely a net win for the internet. but it isnt really like that anymore is it. instead you go on the internet and thats it. the internet IS the cool thing! and that would be really convenient except the internet isnt cool at all and also it sucks ass
with the correct kernel installed, Alien Isolation runs at 30~45 fps. Ultra Street Fighter IV holds 60fps.
Alien Isolation being all cinematic...
Got Doom 3 and Jamestown to run with Docker. Jamestown crashes when run directly on Pop 20.04 so that's progress.
now I have to think of solutions to make those run on a modern 64bit distro but given that Debian 9 is still supported and can be containerized, I have some hope.
Debian, buy me a house.
Y'all are all jealous of my hot shell prompt.
It's not only hot, it also allows to see what the hell is going on in git and I completely hate working in environments with dumb shell prompts.
Don't get me wrong, computers can absolutely help us regain our environmental efficiency. They just *aren't*.
Not as long as we're:
* constantly syncing everything to the cloud,
* expecting same-hour delivery,
* funding our clickbait via surveillance advertising,
* buying a new phone every year,
* using AIs because they're cool rather than useful,
* running bloated software & webpages,
* buying into "big data"
Computing is environmentally cheap, but it rapidly adds up!
Shit I can't say on Twitter
Linux fueled mayhem & madness with a side of news, reviews, and whatever the Hell-Elks™ we come up with.
