Seriously, though.

First joy and happiness from didn't wear off yet.

Incredible approach. I mean, yeah, deck itself "just" a laptop with somewhat nice graphic card, but the way they preferred to deal with people is mind blowing. Not like any other gaming console with DRM on top of next DRM they just made really nice device with open source OS. You don't have to break it and root to "side load" store as GoG or Epic.

Question. Are there nice sources of tips&tricks you would rec?

Got my hands on my (finally). After couple days I want to say, that I am ready get one for the team and publicly kiss hairy sweaty Gabe's ass, as gesture of appreciation.

(but pls don't screen this, I don't really want to)

You would think that his motives were strictly commercial, yet somehow Valve made so much good for linux gaming.. hell.. gaming in general.

BTW I use Arch!

Also didn't realize but turns out I like platformers. But not with mice and keyboard.

I have to confess. Since getting a membership¹ at , I am enjoying again shopping for audio-books. You know, that feeling, that you bought something for real - they let you download your book in .zip file, DRM free. You can listen whenever, where ever. It yours forever (until heat death of universe, of course). And when you buy books from them, they share profit with your fav local book store. What not to love?


Recently I'm getting into and wanna reduce amount of IT stuff in my lifr, so now I'm exploring "gaming" laptop. Please, share your experience if you one of gamers on laptop. Any advice? What should I look at extra thoroughly? Pros, cons? Anyone has interesting links at blogs about gaming laptops? Extra points if I could use it totally under Linux (my gaming appetites are really small, also lately really short on time).

Huh. I did something fun yesterday. After liking fish way more than current zsh I decided to uninstall zsh, assuming my on will deal with it and didn't assign new default shell for my user, and now I can't login. 😑

M'aiq thinks some books it is okay to judge by their cover. Who has time to read every book? And some it is safer not to.

I wonder, can I get some social assistance with disability like that?

Here's my setup, how I can quickly with a single keybinding get a rofi menu on my screen showing all the live streamers I follow, and pressing enter on any of them starts the stream in mpv.

Twitch without having to use twitch website or app. Good stuff :)
