I wanted to ask you guys - whats you experiences with TLC based SSD's - are they stable enough ?

Using a 20% off voucher on WD.com, receiving the product, with thanks.... another voucher for 20% off.
Why not lower the asking price on the site a and increase sales. Not that I'm complaining, just seems an obvious thing to do for WD

Is it just me that have issues when exiting a game launched through steam. It seems to hang X, nothing happened. I can exit to another try and kill it, but X seems to stay affected til I reboot. Game I a "windows" game (its Skyrim). In runs flawlessly when playing.......

Benchmarked my old home build NAS, to see if I could argue for getting myself new gear (gear lust is real).
Speed was saturating the 1Gbit link in both directions, and storage space only about half used.
This on an old++ AMD-E350 CPU mini-itx with 8gb ram.
Running ZFS mirror on Ubuntu Server.
Guess no need to upgrade.

Another great experience today. Got my old voice-recorder device working in WINE. It's a very old WinXP application for the sync (won't run in Win7/10). But in WINE, works flawlessly

Finding out that keepassxc have client for Win/MAC/Linux......plain old just saved my day. Obviously testing the inter-OS compatibility on the Native Linux Client with the Win client running in WINE.
Oh Why didnt you tell me it was this easy. I see my god ol Win7 VM is going to die :-)

Damn - Wine got goood. Just manged to install 2 older windows tools i really liked and Freelancer (the game) with zero effort. And it just works.

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 🙂
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 😊
