🤔 Would it be worthwhile to make a bot to delete messages?

I just wanted my iPhone battery replaced, but the technicians couldn't get it to power on after working on it, so they sent it to Apple who replaced pretty much everything at no cost to me, so I got a basically brand new phone for $50.

It took me a month to fix this issue with unable to see games on my drives! The fix was to `touch` the folders that Steam could not traverse.

Man, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. 

All I can think about is how my extended family is politically and religiously pretty different than me. There is no point sharing my views because they have the whole group to zero in on me.

Most days, I don't care or am even proud of the difference.

I got it to work by using the AppImage instead of unity-hub from the AUR. I'm very pleased I don't have to do something drastic like dual boot into a Gnome system.

This is why there are no Nvidia cards in the desktops at home anymore.

You know, looking back to my first times on the Internet, at my dad's work and at the library before we even had it at home, the main thing I did was chat rooms. One of my favorite ones was a program that changed rooms depending on what website you were at. So you could surf around and chat with other people sitting at the same site. Maybe that has stuck with me all this time.

Sounds cool to me as long as it's not breaky. Playing the devil's advocate, I wonder what the shift will look like if much of the Internet isn't funded by advertising to consumers.

Alright, I answered my own question. I installed Unity Engine on another computer in the house that also has Plasma like me but is running Manjaro where I am running Arch. It worked on that other computer. So now I know I don't need to dual boot (unless I find new hardships); but I also don't know what needs to be fixed.

I have access to another computer that is running Gnome but otherwise same distribution as me. I did not experience the issues there that I did on my computer. So now I decide if I can find a workaround, use that computer to get through the tutorial, or install another distro and dual boot. I'm not happy about this level of effort to get OS requirements met. I suppose it happens all the time for developers.

But it didn't happen in Godot!

I have tried both the latest 2020 and LTS 2019 versions of to try to get through their tutorial. I am pretty frustrated. But, I am running Plasma and their requirements say Gnome. So I am going to create a VM and see if I get farther. But I am already unhappy with that prospect. This is a foul beginning.

Well, I am starting to go through the tutorials. A friend and I are going to see how much we can learn and get an idea of what it would be like to be game developers.

We looked into Godot as well. I was leaning toward that one. But Unity had more learning resources it seemed. I'm still a little worried about Linux compatibility with Unity. I will discover what it's like!
