If you bought Cyberpunk 2077 from GOG you own the game. You can download the installer as a backup and the game is DRM free. The same is true of all the games there and they do a good job of updating and patching games. Steam is a controlled game store. Steam has many of […]
If you are like me you might like to play all those older games from your youth. My gaming adventures span the eighties and nineties, with a few from the early two thousands. Thanks to GOG and Lutris I own all my old RPG favorites and play them easily on Linux. Thanks to all those […]
I was running Manjaro on my son’s older Asus ROG and he complained about game performance so it has been sitting. I was wanting to check out Garuda so I installed it today on his Asus. I only had a few hiccups once installed and was rather forced to install the Dr460ized version – I […]
I really liked the Manjaro cat wallpaper included in the KDE flavor (the original artist is muser on https://forum.manjaro.org/) but wanted it spiced up so I made my own. Here are the files I created to make the wallpaper, includes the Inkscape cat svg and Krita file. To create the background I just used the […]

My son has the Apple XS iPhone, which was advertised as water resistant. While he was video recording a restoration project the phone accidentally got splashed while washing the object he was restoring. Within a day it began displaying damage as the screen and camera began to behave oddly. I told him to shut it […]
During the protests while already being locked down by the virus and curfews, maybe fear that the end was here (nah, we know better), I got bored and made a dashboard to watch the protest action from the safety of home as neither of us can risk the cost of COVID treatment or loss of […]
I was curious if I could get CAMs from around town like I had done years ago for a dashboard I built for work. Well, it’s a hell of a lot easier now than it was! I also used to display the weather and such but a lot of that is pay to play, accept […]
