just lost a good hour of my life figuring out why the audio on my laptop was intermittently cutting out two or three times a second... good ol' pulseaudio. at least I didn't have to re-install Kubuntu altogether...

the semester is over and i suddenly have no purpose in life

minecraft mods are like heroin dude, holy shit
I started up a server to play with my friends on 1.14 and I didn't realize how badly I needed mods. unfortunately it looks like I have no way to get anything from my current world to an older version, so until either MCEdit updates or MCForge and other major mods update, I'm basically stuck...

gettin real sick of not waking up on time. setting all of my alarms to Spiderman 2: The Game Pizza song

are there any alternatives to Windows designed specifically for gaming? I've thought about SteamOS, but it's still Linux, and there's some non-Steam games that I want to play.

...so that way, if I want to work on a Linux thing while I'm in a game, I can do that without having to reboot my entire machine. however, I've heard that's a pretty tricky method to implement. minGW or cygWin don't seem like alternatives that would work for me. the best thing I could think of is to install Linux on my SSD and save just enough space for a Windows install, then get known working games set up with Proton, and any other games on Windows. that way I don't have to reboot as often.

I know that Proton is a thing now, but considering it's still relatively early into it's development process, scouring through forums and messing with a ton of settings just to play a game isn't something I have the time or energy for anymore. I've also tried running Linux entirely in a VM, but it just feels wrong to me. one solution I've thought of is to set up Linux as a partition on my hard drive and find some way to run that through a VM...

so, I've been talking about switching to Linux on my desktop machine for a while. the main thing that's holding me back is the fact that it's mainly a gaming machine. I've tried dual-booting with Windows and Linux in the past, with Windows being for gaming and Linux for everything else, but having to restart my computer whenever I want to play a quick game with someone drastically hampers my workflow in Linux. anyone here in a similar situation?

I'm thinking of starting a video mini series that educates parents (and a subset of adults that look after children) on the ins and outs of parenting their child in a world where social media is so prevalent.

What topics/realms of interest would you like to see covered if I were to do such a thing?

Is this something you'd be willing to support financially/donate to? I would be doing it with or without funding, though funding would allow me to make it a little more polished.

I wanna get better at puyo puyo but I don't have anyone to play with :<

are we posting about cringe now? is that what we're doing?

I think we are feature- and bug-complete for the first part of the UI, which is the pattern editor. I'll get this ready for release and push master.

This makes vtracker a bit more usable, but it still needs an instrument editor and track editor before it has a complete user interface.
