Pues probando ElementaryOS de nuevo, después de unas horas pareciera mas estable y más rápido que su versión anterior, veremos que tal vá...
Por lo pronto su cliente para mastodon Tootle ¡me ha encantado!

Seems that Unreal Engine 4 now runs with Vulkan under Linux with dramatic performance improvements.

Many wish Fortnite on Linux to come via these improvements.

The head honcho at Epic goes on constantly about Spydows being closed and giving out about it. Would be great if he actually did something.

Or is it "do not plan on Linux. You will get intriguing bonuses / or else."

Who knows! Control, not money.

Apparently there's a traffic cone in my local park. I have some questions regarding the necessity of traffic redirection in this particular place.

Yesterday Russia won football match. We had lot (LOT!) of cheering crowds here in Moscow. Ironically, it was 1st of July -- day, when Yarovaya law is coming into effect (but nobody cares about internet prices) and prices for water+gas are rising by 4-6% (different regions) (nobody cares too).

I usually like, when people around me are happy and optimistic, but yesterday was just not that day.

Joel Spolsky on C: "I'm a big fan of C — but I think nobody should ever code anything in C. It's simply not possible to use C safely."

Matches my feeling about C exactly.

I was playing Starbound when my elementary OS froze and then crashed a couple of seconds later. When I tried to boot it again, xorg gave me a large package of "fuck you"s because I didn't have any video drivers installed. Wut.

I'm not even angry, it's just amazing how a simple game annihilated my drivers. Guess a brand new installation is coming.

I write open source software because:
- I enjoy programming,
- I need/want a particular thing to exist,
- once I have written it, I might as well share it,
- maybe someone will even find a bug or pick it up and maintain it.
And not because:
- I want anyone to make money on it,
- I want to defend anyone from anything,
- I want to be rich and famous.
Just think about it like playing an instrument — it's fun to do, and even better when done together. But I don't sell albums.

New version is coming~

- Translated into Russian, Polish and French
- Streamable public timelines
- DM timeline
- Custom character limit (suggested by @drequivalent)
