    Facebook nerft..

    I left Facebook long ago and after that WhatsApp EULA update I deleted my WhatsApp account. I'm finally Facebook free since February or so. Unfortunately I still have that googlemail address I made as kid and have it linked to some of my accounts. However that might be a good thing as I keep...

    Nintendo Switch

    People are saying there will be a 4K Switch since years now. Concerning paid DLC: All the games I have played with paid DLC were pretty fair. There 95% of the time are no first day DLC. And those I've purchased are mostly well done, add to the experience and are at a fair price. Nintendo does...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    Shadow Warior 2013 It's the first time I play a first person shooter. I never liked first person view but gave it a try and it's quite fun and the perspective is not as bad as I expected. I have that game now since a long time but with my Win 3 I can finally play PC games comfortably. It's a...

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    I still wonder if that shortage will continue for a very long time or if we'll have way to many electronic parts in the future as everyone is ramping up their production now.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    You can get bookmarks and subscriptions locally with freetube It breaks from time to time but when it works it's suuuper convenient and feels like an official website/app except everything is stored offline and you don't need an account for anything

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    You get browser tabs redesign. That's even better. Sometimes they are rectangles, sometimes they are a little curved. That absolutely needs to change each 2-3 years, else all those UX designers would have no job.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    What is your reason for that? I always like new features, especially when they are free.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    Nah, I personally am the update guy. I believe updates close security holes and I should get them when they become available. Especially on Linux and my browser.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    Most of the time I am happy when I get new features and new free stuff on my Linux computer. I went with Manjaro because I want to get the latest updates and features. That said, my computer does not force any updates. I'm using a graphical package manager that notifies me when there are...

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    I guess we need a machine then to make desert sand suitable for whatever we need it. A company with such an invention would make billions within days.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    Luckily we don't need faster computers or higher res 8k screens or 6G or foldable smartphones or whatever to enjoy our life. Todays computers and cars are good enough for an average person to live high live they could not have imagined 20 years ago. Take GPUs as an example. All I target is...

    Heute sind Wahlen. Geh hin!

    Ich habe auch schon per Briefwahl gewählt. Finde ich viel komfortabler und ich bin heute nicht in meinem Wahlkreis. Ich bin im Dorf, also habe ich das persönlich abgeholt und weider im Rathaus eingeworfen und somit nicht sinnlos Zeug durch die Gegend geschickt. Ist ja so hoch wie nie die...

    Steam Deck (using SteamOS) handheld by Valve

    I agree for at some extent but not when such software enters deep into my system, is closed source and does whatever. A game or any other software shall not know what else is running on my computer.

    People should rather remove anti cheat from their game instead of adding support for it to other devices

    Just a quick status report video

    No need to worry "It may be a number of years before the proposals come into effect. The legislative proposal, known as a Directive, will be debated by the European Parliament and national governments. MEPs and member states may suggest amendments to the proposal. Only once the EC has agreed...

    Absurdism corner

    When you leave enough space between some lines so you can cut your finger nails without damaging data. That way you get hundreds of gigabyte for free each month. After you cut your nail it's up to you to decide whether you want to preserve them or keep them permanently.

    Absurdism corner

    Nah, I'm not too motivated. For the moment I can write down the bits on my thumbnail. I optimised my writing enough to fit 2TBon each finger nail. Read/writespeed is still a little slow, but enough for long term storage.

    Absurdism corner

    I don't want super speed, I want 2 or better 4TB micro SD. Where are they? 1TB is out far too long now.
