github pro tips:

you can add .patch to the end of any pull request url or commit url to get a perfect patch.

example:
open a terminal and type:
wget github.com/ValveSoftware/wine/

BOOM. instant patch made from pull request.

or

wget github.com/ValveSoftware/wine/

BOOM. instant patch made from git commit.

mind = blown.

If anyone's not subscribed to humble monthly yet, they always have great games, many of which are on linux. Feel free to help me get some credit for games with my affiliate link! humblebundle.com/monthly?refc=

If you are new to linux, please do the universe a favor and don't pick debian as your first distro.

Gaming on Linux has come a long way. This is Battlefield 1, on a Ryzen 2400G + RX 580, at ultra settings, recorded with the GPU using VAAPI, being played in WINE with DXVK, all on linux. youtube.com/watch?v=n28Ap4L2nl

Today my Threadripper motherboard died. Somehow got shorted when I went to swap my GPUs in order to test something. Sigh.

Not too bad for GPU encoding via VAAPI in OBS. 1080p 60fps, 30,000 bitrate for recording. Of course x264 looks much better, but this is a great option if you dont have a strong cpu

Hey linux streamer/youtuber friends, guess what got merged into OBS today? (allows amd and intel gpus to encode h.264)

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

HEADS UP: current package for OpenAL on Arch is borked. roll back to 1.18.2 for the time being.

You know what I don’t miss about Twitter? The never ending outrage train. Be it a tv ad, a cartoon, a flag, a misguided comment, or whatever else, there is always something for the perpetually offended to be outraged at. I haven’t seen any of that on Mastodon as of yet

alright, maybe not quite playable. this is on the lowest settings. currently a stutter fest. getting there though

turns out I guess I needed a reboot. getting around 80 fps on low in the division. still not great for vega but more than playable

well, the division runs like complete ass, but holy shit it runs at least :o. this is on wine steam with dxvk (not steam play/proton)

I live on the #Debian Republic, and like to travel the #Stallman sea, #Gnome 3 hills, the #GNU ocean and the #GPL sea... 🙂 How about you?
