I need myself a new laptop. I just used my current one for an hour on battery, and I'm down to 20% charge. Screen turned way down, and used it only for typing and listening to music.

I've been trying out @elementary OS 5 Juno for the last couple of days, and that release is *Solid*! The graphical glitches I had with Loki are gone, and the WiFi issues I've had with basically every distro tried the last year, are a thing of the past. Great job all around!

Today I entered my first homebrew competition, with my "Dunkel Bastard" Porter-ish beer. Wish me luck!

I've used KDE for the last couple of months, and I'm really liking it! Using 680 MB ram at boot up (OpenSUSE Tumbleweed), and it's snappy and intuitive. And KDE Connect is awesome!

It took me just over 96 hours, but I finally got the "Lazy Bastard" Achievement in Factorio.

Life would be a lot easier if only Brother would release their ppd files, and not have me digging through their source code to find it...

Took me an hour and three attempts, before I decided to ditch their Deb package, and try to locate the ppd instead. As soon as I found it, I was up and running in a matter of seconds...

Trying to force my wife's PC to access our network's Samba share is more than I feel like wrestling with at the moment. Lubuntu Live USB to the rescue!

Some fuckwit from Vietnam keeps trying to break into my web server. Say hello to the block hammer...

I'm trying an Arch based distro for the first time today. Installing Manjaro on my desktop.

I've been playing (badly) Surviving Mars for a couple of days, and I thoroughly enjoy it! Flaws, bugs and all.

I have yet to develop anything larger than three domes, but I'm getting there. Slowly...

Oh, and I suggest you all support a developer that releases for Linux on day one!

One of the most satisfying things in , is watching an army of construction drones tear down an entire forest in a matter of seconds!

A Taketsuru 12 year old Japanese pure malt whisky is a nice way to end a friday. Will you toast the toot?

The same goes for the original Sid Meier's Civilization. The entire game fits onto 2 (two!) 1.44 MB floppy disks!

I dug out my old UFO Enemy Unknown disks the other day. X-COM UFO Defence for you Americans out there. It's amazing how much content they managed to cram into just over 12 MB back in 1993. That's graphics, sound, music, AI, story, the lot! In 12 MB! Nowadays, you'd be lucky to get half that content in under 12 GB...
