@ted Nah, neither of them are interested really. Son has a monster gaming PC. Daughter doesn't game, and has an M1 Air.

@ted For the games I tried, yeah. Although I found Portal 2 would sometimes pause during loading, but while playing it was fine.

Today marks 100 days uptime on my trusty old ThinkPad X220. Longest it's ever been up since I re-installed 14.04.3 on it in December 2015. It's been successfully upgraded through every interim and LTS Ubuntu release up to 22.04.

Bought this (linked) Steam Deck Dock and paired all four Steam Controllers, for maximum family multiplayer gaming fun times. 🕹🕹🕹🕹

@Jill_linuxgirl you look like you’re a puppet on Michael’s knee with his hand up your back 🤪

Clearing out a cupboard I found my old D-Link Boxee remote from the past. We used this when demonstrating @ubuntu TV. Loved the design of this thing. Shame I don’t still have the proprietary USB dongle for it. 😢

@socketwench most people I speak to are exhausted by virtual conferences. In person makes it easier to focus, no distracting family, pets, deliveries or work. Virtual conferences cause more fatigue and stress than in person in my experience.

In this image there likely are or were civilisations similar to ours. They almost certainly had/have advanced and near-instantaneous ways to communicate with each-other. They may even have had their own "Twitter" equivalent. Theirs probably has an edit button though...

@TrechNex I bought one 15 years ago, and still drag it out every summer for 2 days. Sadly it's a bit rubbish now, and barely blows a cold breeze.

@k just looked at it again. I see it’s not actually the right lid for that container :)

@k I may have screwed it on in a hurry in my excitement to take a photo :)

So I’m sure everyone is aware of the quirky way Canadians get milk in bags. Today I discovered sugar in a carton in Spain!? Never seen it in this type of container in the UK. Is this common elsewhere?

Son just brought me his “broken” iPad. Lightning connector snapped off inside the charge port. Fixed it in a couple of minutes. He asked how I did it so fast “Did you watch YouTube tutorial? Use a toothpick?”. Close. Corn on the cob holder…
