God I love what the DICE rendering engineers are doing in interviews regarding RTX.
Journalist: "Can you give me some technical details on this system?"
Engineer: "Uuuh... OK, sure. <BLURTS A 3-PARAGRAPH FULLY TECHNICAL RUNDOWN OF EVERY SINGLE ENGINEERING DECISION IN THE SYSTEM>"
Engineer: "What 🤷♂️"

I don't know why I always have problems installing grub whenever I install an Ubuntu-based distro. I have to use boot-repair every time. It feels really refreshing to finally get to install a shiny new version of #elementaryOS, though!
elementary OS 5 Juno is here. It’s more refined, more productive, and an even better platform for developers. We've majorly updated apps, made the desktop more productive with several new features, refined the overall look and feel, and a whole lot more. https://buff.ly/2RSeAts

I finally managed to get NVENC working in OBS on elementaryOS Loki. Had to manually compile ffmpeg with nVidia's Video Codec SDK and CUDA and then compile OBS. I am getting about 70% less CPU usage when using NVENC H.264 compared to regular x264. OBS supposedly ships with NVENC support included in newer versions of Ubuntu-based distros, so this ordeal may no longer be necessary after updating to the upcoming version of elementaryOS. #obs #nvidia #nvenc #elementaryos
Installing latest nVidia drivers "only" took like 3 tries. And many more reboots with troubleshooting. Had to confirm several intimidating messages the installer threw at me, like "the kernel was compiled with a different version of cc, are you sure you want to continue?" I guess so, what do I know. It's not like I'm going to be updating my C toolchain without an X-server. At least it's "kind of" automatic, I had to just keep trying to run the installation script while adjusting some settings.
