    In case you're woundering about my display name, it's the username I had at a school I went to, where they combined two letter from the last name and first name, resulting in «tøsa», which just happends to mean «the bitch» in Norwegian.

  1. I don't understand. Is this an offer from a company seeking to employ you or just someone looking for a freelance? Do you have to move?
  2. I'd take a copy of any important files, either using safe mode or with a Linux live CD, and then reinstall the OS. Clean wipe, fresh install.
  3. Are Apple blocking Nvidia drivers completely, or are they just blocking CUDA? Because keeping CUDA out of their ecosystem makes a lot of sense. If software start depending on CUDA to function, then Apple has a problem when they're releasing computers with AMD or Intel GPUs in them. I mean, look at how video encoding works in MacOS: You can choose between Apple software encoder and Apple hardware encoder. You don't get to choose between Nvidia's nvenc, AMD's MFT and Intel's QuickSync.
  4. I want to know the state of VR gaming on Linux. Last I tried, I got massive input lag and decided Linux isn't quite ready yet. Before I give it another go, I want to know that there's been made some significant progress.
  5. Microwaved leftover pizza, I guess. Mostly because I'm lazy, and don't mind my pizza being a little soggy.
  6. I think that'll be my Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop from 2005.
  7. In addition to the letters in the English alphabet, the Nordic countries all have three additional letters. I Norway and Denmark, there's Æ, Ø, and Å, and Sweden and Finland have Ä, Ö and Å. I don't know about Finland, but Sweden, Denmark and Norway all have slightly different keyboard layouts. Norway and Denmark, for instance, have the Æ and Ø on the opposite buttons compared to each other, which is fine, as long as they don't make keyboards with all these layouts mashed together. Oh, but they do. They didn't use to, but now that's all I can get my hands on. And we use our additional letters a lot here. And mind you, these letters aren't fancy versions of O and A, they're completely different letters, just like the letter C isn't a fancy O. Substituting them with a lookalike letter that's in the English alphabet is just janky. Look at this shit: Sure, I know which one is Æ, and which one is Ø, but that's no help when I'm having a brain fart and need to check which one is which. And imagine if you're a kid or a grandma who's just learning to type on this shit! And which button do you think I have to push to get a backslash? I mean, I use backslash often enough that it's annoying when there's a fake one next to the real one, and I use it rarely enough that I never remember which one is which. And if you're curious, if I press the two dots next to Å, nothing happens immediately, but if I then press O, I get Ö, or A I get Ä. If I press space, I get the two dots by themselves ¨ Whoever though it would be a good idea to mash these layouts together should get fired. And if whoever is responsible for this is for some reason reading this, well, I'm not gonna condone suicide, but your contributions to society is certainly not of a positive character.
  8. A while ago, I discovered a new brand I had never heard of before, called Svive. I was kinda excited for Nvidia now supporting freesync, and though I'd get a freesync monitor, and the cheapest 27" 1440p 144hz freesync monitor I found was a Svive monitor. Now, they make a bunch of different gaming related stuff, that is headphones, mice, keyboards, wireless routers, chairs, microphones, microphone accessories and computer cases. Turns out, this is a brand aimed at the Nordic market. They don't seem to be selling outside of Scandinavia. On their website, if you click the Norwegian flag in the upper right corner, you'll get a list of stores where you can buy their products, but I've only heard of Komplett.no (and Komplettbedrift.no, which is just Komplett.no for companies). Komplett.no is basically the place to go if you want to build your own PC in Norway. There's also Komplett.se in Sweden and Komplett.dk in Denmark. I'd love to see a review of Svive products. I can point out one catch here and now: If you have a problem, you'll find nothing on Google.
  9. A few years ago, I registered a personal company, which did absolutely nothing for the whole time it existed. There was no webpage, and I registered my personal email(big mistake). I received a bunch of spam email and telemarketing. One particular telemarketer claimed to be a "Google partner", and that I'd have to subscribe to their services to have my webpage indexed by Google. Now, with bullshit like this, it'd typically be accompanied by an Indian accent, and they'll be speaking English. Not this one, though, he spoke perfect Norwegian with an eastern dialect (probably Oslo). He remained polite the whole time, though, even after I started confronting him about the fact that Google indexes everything regardless. He was just suddenly in quite the rush and very eager to hang up - politely. He got lots of calls to make and all.
  10. PewDiePie already has more influence than the tabloids, but they still sway some (important) people's views. So I'd say it'd probably be good for Floatplane if Pewds started using it at a later point. It must be open to other creators first.
  11. Tabloids are bound to be writing hit peaces on both Floatplane as a platform, as well as the people in charge of it if PewDiePie got invited in at this point.
  12. I think it would be wise for him not to associate himself with any particular political view, unless it's necessary to defend his business. Taking a stance against article 13 would be a good example of this. Starting a political discussion is a good way to build up heated discussions that leads nowhere and bad blood between people. Much like talking about religion.
  13. I wasn't talking about graphics drivers. I was talking about firmware updates to the motherboard.
