Valve: latest Linux gaming work boosting AMD Vulkan framerates up to 44% (!)
Even in its infancy, this new shader compiler is resulting in a 44% framerate boost on certain AMD graphics cards.
In one particular DX11 game, it's even beating Windows even though the title isn't to be played natively on Linux (but via Proton / Steam Play).

I don't know if I'm reading too much into this or what, but I noticed a pattern:
- Contacting support from my home IP means that I get a good customer service rep, even when the company is known for having bad customer service.
- Contacting support from my phone or on university wifi is a mixed bag.
Users will be given refunds but the books themselves will no longer be readable. If you made notes on the titles, you'll get $25 credit as a, "we're sorry you'll no longer have access to the notes you took on all those books. Here's $25 and we'll call it even!"
The new Raspberry Pi 4 is here !!!!!
I keep going full circle with web frameworks. I liked Rails and Laravel because I can develop things really fast, but they're also super complex (and Laravel is better for large companies where money isn't really an issue, all the really magical stuff in the ecosystem is subscription-based).
Then again I also liked the various Go, Rust, and Python web frameworks for being simple and pretty fast (especially Go).
