I installed Crysis 3 on my graphics card!

I used some VRAMdrive software called GPU Ram Drive, made a 15GB NTFS partition on the GPU, then installed Crysis 3 on it

At 4K very high settings get good fps and the game loads very fast - GPU-Z reports total VRAM use 20434MB

John Cage's "Organ²/ASLSP (As Slow as Possible)" has been playing on the organ of a church in Halberstadt, Germany since 2001. (The performance runs until 2640.) This Saturday, the chord that has been held since 2013 will change. aslsp.org/de/home.html

Thanks to amazing work from Alexandre Abgrall (aabgrall on Github), GeForce Now can now be used under Linux!
With it, you can even play anticheat-protected games, which normally don't work on Linux at all.
Install it using Lutris:

I made a super simple CLI plotting thingy, reads numbers on stdin, draws svg to stdout. Just for seeing the shape of data. It's written in awk.

TOML makes more sense. Do not pick yaml just because others have

So it's enough to link against the FB SDK and allow location access for Facebook to track you with zero lines of code.
RT @sandofsky
To stop crashes from the Facebook SDK, some devs tried commenting out any code that calls Facebook. Nothing worked.

It turns out that by just including the SDK with your app, Facebook runs hidden code on launch. (FBSDKApplicationDelegate.m)

I'm excited to have this opportunity 🙌
