With all the good offers on GOG for my old favorite games, and games j never played, I'm hoping they would do a Linux client and something like Proton.
Today's pick up was "Return to castle Wolfenstein" and "Railroad Tycoon 3" - for around 2 Euro each.

BTW, did anyone do an rewamp or update to Elite Frontier, that's worth playing?

Found a physical copy (on DVD) of Microsofts Freelancer game. I hope it's still as.great a I seem to remember. And that I can get it running in Linux.

Got a great scoop today at the local thrift shop, while dropping off some books and DVDs. Found Bioshock 2, Hitman2: Silent Assassin and Civilization 5 for a total of 12 EUR.
Just har to finish Skyrim first πŸ™‚
Too much work to find enough time for playing games

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

Seriously considering going back to all console apps (aside from Firefox) running in something like i3vm.
It's just more focused and less meddling move windows around and having to use the mouse too much

What the fairness in you finally re-gaining you passion for gaming (tnx to new GFX and Skyrim), and at the same time being so overworked that you can find no time for playing. Sad Monkey

Doh! When you figure out the skill/perk system 10 hours into the game (Skyrim), and find that your random choices is all wrong for you class/style. Considering if it's worth restarting the game

Well, installed Skyrim yesterday to test the new gfx card, now it says 8.5 hours of play time.... totally forgot to go to sleep. Man it gonna be a long day at the office. Still smiling though 😊

@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.

The "new" GTX970 addition to my machine - oh the glory. Playing Skyrim at Ultra High in 1920x1200 full screen silky smooth.

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. with old trusty HW πŸ™‚

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?

Ohhhh just discovered that a new Descent game will be happening this year (www.descent2019.com), with a native Linux edition as I understand it. I'm a huge fan, played the first 3 games...... well let's just say ALOT

Part2 really need to not fall in the trap of ending up "studying for work" in my spare time again. Need to get into the cool computing - for the fun of it

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" ?
