    Sounds like Lunduke is having some great fun offline.



    I should try some of that. Too much not important/non urgent stuff in my life these days.

    would touching a file do the same thing?

    that should update the timestamp, which affects the harddrive:

    Code:
    while [ 1 ]; do sleep 10; touch ~/file; done

    @Caine Yeah, I should try computing offline too. Then I'll finally be free enough from distraction to complete all my Steam games.

    ...Oh, wait. :(

    I've had a bit of a YouTube adventure today. I started off with videos about Cajun food and ended up with psychiatric training videos via Mr Rogers and historical train journeys.

    Dare I say it, there are some comments sections out there containing nothing but positive, relevant remarks. They're normally below the best content, too.

    The trick, as in life, is to steer clear of the noisy idiots!

    Next you'll be telling us that the Earth is round and New Coke was a failure, back to your retirement home grandad. *Sips from can of New Coke*

    Edit: Found an example from my own travels. I visit https://tulpa.io/discuss/ for actual useful discussion and I visit https://www.reddit.com/r/Tulpas/ to see what the zoo animals are up to.

    Round like a pancake! (but only if you rotate your pan to distribute the batter, else the pancake becomes a blob)

    The picture looks right, but it could be someone trolling his identity. I do wonder why anyone would bother though, and at the same time people who live on the internet do seem to be a little more highly strung than the rest of us and liable to these sort of odd opinions sometimes. I don't recall him ever reviewing any of our european hardware or any of the early Infrogrames stuff before it turned into the multinational behemoth it is today, so I can't check his biases on that stuff. Or oh, was Infrogrames French? Who were the big German companies on PC? Apogee?

    I wouldn't call the corner of your thumb to be a local landmark. Not to me anyway, but I guess it's quite local to you.

    Lucky today my phone isn't in Japanese kanji mode. It sometimes forgets what country it lives in.

    42 (Loire) is the answer.
    I doubt it. He never strucked me as even a patriot, and I don't think anyone enthusiastic enough about IT stuff and video games would disregard anything foreign.
    Many have been designed in Japan and most are made in China anyway. Plus he's quite the ramen eater :p
    If he were to use a different nickname, he'd choose Duke Nukem. Else he wouldn't say he's LGR at all. This just doesn't make any sense to me, and I really want to keep thinking of Clint as a nice guy.

    Edit :
    Infogrames is indeed French, they're now named Atari SA.
    For german companies, I'd say... Broderbund ? (checked the fact... and it's a fail !)

    'nother edit :
    you can add Rainbow Arts, Blue Byte, Factor 5, Crytek, Piranha Bytes, Deep Silver, Kalypso...
