Alright friends that share a fascination and interest in cool technology. Let's share some neat technology things you are using or have discovered. I'm being purposefully vague. It could be a gadget, a computer, a combination of applications etc...
Man, hard to pick just one thing. Mpd(music player daemon) https://www.musicpd.org/
Your music collection + mpd + snapcast + tons of client applications for control. Synchronized multiroom audio.
I don't understand people who think that self-improving artificial intelligence will solve all of humanity's problems. We've already got self-improving natural intelligence and all it does is shitpost and be depressed

I want the web to go back being whimsy and fun.
more excitedly showing your friends the cute scrolling stars in the background of your site with a little slime fren that bounces around when you tilt your phone 📱
I have no idea if I was "born this way" (queer).

Du coup je lance ma live USB Linux Mint, j'installe l'imprimante réseau en 2 clics, récupère les documents sur sa boite mail et imprime. Temps de l’opération 8 minutes

Learn heavily from Palm OS. State-saving can, for tasks that don't need to run in the background, provide an amazing simulation of multitasking. For tasks that do need to run in the background, well, decouple things adequately such that only the actual background task runs.
Target absolute fucking potatoes. If you can run well on a potato, you'll fucking fly on modern hardware, and the CPU basically never has to run.

The game has been loved by reviewers and users alike, so it looks like it will be a solid hit for Linux gamers after more Lara.
It takes the first game and makes nearly all aspects of it bigger and better than before, including more actual Tombs.
