I had 2 hours to work on projects tonight, but instead spent that time trying to find how to rebuild kernel modules for my nvidia drivers after an update.
This laptop is the first in years that has an nvidia chip, a kernel update breaking my Optimus setup was a blast from the past.
I should really start taking notes about my system tweaks so I can fix things easier in the future!!!
I've made my Rofi/dmenu GZDoom mid launcher available. Now time to add the 7 other planned features to it!
@derek what happened to your podcast? I miss having your biweekly news snippets on my drive to do the food shopping
BT's Openreach to build full-fibre internet 'like fury' after Ofcom move - BBC News
Excellent news! Prices may be a bit higher, but FTTP would never ever reach my semi-rural location otherwise
I have been far too busy the last 2 weeks as the pregnancy nears it's end, so I've picked up one of my previously shelved projects.
I've completed a 72-card deck to assist sci-fi gamesmasters & solo roleplayers, helping provide an oracle, adventure seeds, dice rolls, and even a simplistic GM-emulator into a single deck of cards.

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
I've been learning video editing with flowblade, as it's something I've never really done, and learning new skills is fun!
As I had to replace the shower rail in my bathroom, and it ended up requiring some 3D printing, I decided to make a very short video of my process...

Well, this drama makes me glad I bought it on Nintendo Switch.
Shame, I found The Sinking City to be an *excellent* game, I would recommend it but the devs really should earn money from it
Just heard my entire team at work will be getting made redundant. Apparently, me and the boss have other roles earmarked for us, but until I see it in writing I am in full panic mode.
This is no time to be job hunting, especially with a baby on the way. #PANIC
