Was inspired by @HexDSL video on mutt and i3. Spend a few hours going down that rabbit hole....only to wonder, why didn't I do this sooner. It solves so many of my UI grievances with Mate and similar VMs
@ChrisWere I blame...and thank you for showing me the path. Once I complete Skyrim, I'll move on to DeusEx and Hitman. Fun fact Hitman is made by Danish gaming studio IO Interactive.
YAY, finally foundation a small allowance in my personal IT budget to do a small upgrade to my system. Went and got a EVGA GTX970 (to replace my aging GTX560ti), partly basing my decision on @ChrisWere "recommendation" and seeing how great it perform. We don't all have silly money to throw at a RTX2080. I'm quite happy with it. 1080p gaming
@ChrisWere Maybe interesting for your twitch following: DeusEx Invisible Wars is only 0,97€ on Steam today. Just letting you know 😊
Well - i went ant did it. Rebuild my old trusty workhorse of a PC. It might be that its an old i5 CPU and a crusty gtx560ti GPU - but damn it beats using a laptop as a workstation any day. Also having sufficielt internal storage (2x 4TB HDD, aside from the 512GB SSD) i sure beats network speeds from the NAS. Might actually have to reconsider my workflow here. #falling_back_in_love with old trusty HW 🙂
How is your guys setup. Only 1 main workstation PC, Laptop+workstation, only laptop, many more machines.
My work and study situation have changed alot, and consider changing up my setup. I happy a i5 Laptop which is sitting permanently in it's dock now (don't need to bring it anywhere) as my main PC, also have a i5 workstation PC with more storage (+ NAS machine). Thoughs on optimal set up with what I got?
So, changes at work means more free time for hobbies. Been about 10-15 years since I haven't been consumed by work and studies. What to get into....
Kinda feeling the gear lust, while thinking of upgrading my old i5-2500k/gtx560ti machine. Problem is that for the last 5-6 year's I have been fine with using a mid-range Thinkpad (T440). I don't game, so can I defend to myself and wifey an upgrade I don't really need or might not use super much ? - I'm not a gamer or haven't been for 10+ years
Bring home sick with the dreaded man-flu. Have given me ample time to mock about with some VMs. Testing what's the new Mint 19.1 beta (Tessa) was al about. I know it's after referenced as a beginner distro, but seriously it looking good, everything is very polished, coherent and rock solid. We should be giving it more credit a good distro, not with a snob beginner label. Am considering catching the @ChrisWere distro hop bug, and using it as a daily driver for a stint.
@ChrisWere after your experience. Are you going to stay with the Nokia or are you returning to a "smartphone" ?
