I-r0k reacted to RasmusDC in What does your company offer as a work computer?
work at LEGO, i have a Dell Precision 5530, guess it is some kind of XPS clone.
4K display (touch), 32gb ram, P1000 Quadro, 8850H CPU, 256gb NVME, it is a nice laptop, have a backup older DELL 12" with an older 7 series dual core HT cpu.
have 2 offices, but have displays each place, 2 x 1920x1200 in my project and older 2 x 1920x1080 in my office, although i have ordered one of those super wide screen that is the same size of a dual 16:9 setup.
I-r0k reacted to leadeater in An Open Letter to Linus Tech Tips from The Passthrough Post
Probably more than a few angles to look at this. I can understand the VFIO community wishing that they were consulted but it's typically not as easy as that. Sure it's a nice idea but there's some practical issues like who actually are the people that run the VFIO community, how well can they be trusted and relied on etc along with the problem that once you have to interact with an external entity it adds on logistical complications for the LMG staff that could impact resourcing and scheduling.
Linus as far as I know very rarely reaches out for advice from the LTT community, in the way VFIO wants. Personally Linus has asked me once and I know that is because he didn't have an alternative person who he's got an existing working relationship with like Wendell. It's not enough that he knows I'm knowledgeable (IT professional) in the areas he's doing a video on, there needs to be a better reason than that to bring in external advice and rely on that for what is a business project that generates revenue. Who am I? Just some guy on the internet who knows some stuff, there's thousands and thousands of those.
When you publish a guide on how to do something you have no idea who is going to read or follow it, it may just happen to be someone with a large public profile who publicizes this action, like this situation. Most internet guides have issues with rigorous testing of them under many different environments to ensure that it will work for those using it as well as lacking typical errors and what they mean along with troubleshooting procedures, most paid software companies fail at this.
Most LTT guides tend to be more "this is what we did" rather than "this is how to do it correctly", even the latter is actually a hard one to go around stating/doing as many will raise counter points so unless you're the primary source it's best to not frame guides or advice that way. When they are wrong or lack some information or could be done in a better way it can be frustrating to see but the way I've always looked at it is this is educational entertainment, watching someone try and fail or do something wrong is still educational and actually very entertaining. I've given Linus a fair bit of stick more than once for getting stuff wrong but he knows, I think, that I don't really mean it. I highly enjoy his failures more than his successes.
But I know how the VFIO community feels to an extent, the reason I joined this forum was because of the 2 Gamers 1 CPU (unRAID) video which from my standpoint was leading people towards unwise purchasing and technical decisions. I voiced my opinion in the official topic for that video and then hung out in the Network and Servers And NAS (once it got created) sub-forums advising people asking about that video and wanting to do it on better and/or cheaper options that would be much more reliable and easier to use. Myself and about 2 or 3 other members were doing this, that continued after every video that featured unRAID and honestly it wasn't that much effort from us so I can't really see how it's such a big problem for VFIO. Annoying sure.
I-r0k reacted to JustDave2019 in This is for Linus

I'm not touching this one with a 20ft pole...
Without knowing the full details, its hard to say whether these complaints are actually breaches of law or just some people construing statistics to say something that isn't true.
There's just too much agenda and opinion in this sort of topic.
I-r0k reacted to Semper in Over a 150 Riot Games Employees Stage Walkout Over Forced Arbitration & Sexist Culture
and women are liars.
Neither of these hold true without gross misuse and generalizing.
Arbitration is a double-edged sword. It can be a great thing, but can also be very easily abused. I don't know enough on the subject to make comment either way, I don't have the time to invest into it. I do have to take a moment for pause though, as i'm fairly certain that if they become too much of a burden for Riot, it wouldn't take but a few minutes to flood their HR with new applicants for these positions.

I-r0k reacted to Master Disaster in L4T - Ubuntu On Your Switch
Yep, it's happened, it's real and it's fully featured too. Dropped yesterday L4T is based on Nvidias Linux For Tegra however it's using a fully rewritten kernel and it supports everything. Vulkan & OGL, Sound, Bluetooth, overclocking, WiFi, touchscreen, CPU frequency scaling based on load, hardware acceleration, heck it even has a docked mode.
It does have some issues but the devs promise most will be fixed in time
Release information and install instructions - https://gbatemp.net/threads/l4t-ubuntu-a-fully-featured-linux-on-your-switch.537301/
Git Repository - https://gitlab.com/switchroot

God damn it, my brother has my Switch on semi permanent loan so I can't test this out but I feel like this would make a cool LTT video.
I-r0k reacted to Paul Rudd in FREE Games of the Day #1 April 24th, 2019
Today I will be starting a new series here at linustechtips. It will aim to provide FREE games every single day. The games will be from a variety of genres and of random quality. Some days I may provide demos. Some days I may provide episodes. But no matter what, they will always be completely FREE. The majority of these games you've probably never heard of. It's time to change that. And if I miss a day, I will make it up to you.
So without any more fuss or delay, here we go...
Game #1 Backbone will be a FREE game on Steam in 2020.
Developed by EggNut, it's a noir-inspired detective adventure. You'll step into the shoes of anthropomorphic raccoon and private eye, Howard Lotor, and explore the beautifully rendered 2.5D pixel art environments of dystopian Vancouver. Howard Lotor is smart, self-assured and set in his ways. Caught in the tedium of day-to-day life, he’s resigned to the abuses of the authoritative regime in power and compliant with the systemic inequality that permeates society. But a string of cases that grow progressively more outlandish will put his worldview to the test.
It's a new take on point-and-click adventure, featuring stealth, exploration, and extensive branching dialogues inspired by classic CRPGs. As Howard, you must traverse the diverse districts of a now walled-off Vancouver, sniff out clues, collect evidence, interrogate witnesses, and choose which leads to follow.
Inspired by film noir, the game will submerge you into its dark dystopian atmosphere. Every animation in the game is handcrafted frame by frame, and environments are modeled after real streets of Vancouver, BC. The breathtaking combination of high resolution pixel art and 3D effects like dynamic lighting, pouring rain, volumetric fog and neon lights bring the sprawling city to life. The original doom jazz soundtrack will keep you on the edge with the enveloping veil of bebop and cinematic soundscapes, where every sound tells a story.
Lucky for you, the Backbone Prologue was released to Steam TODAY, April 24th, 2019. A prologue is pretty much a demo but more like an introduction, separate from the game itself.
Game #2 Lonely will be a game released to Steam TOMORROW, April 25th, 2019. Price-tag remains unclear.
Developed by Bill's Game, it's is a puzzle-platformer game, which contains 20 game levels. In the game you'll have the ability to control time reversal. You'll need to go back to the past, cooperate with yourself, and shuttle through parallel worlds, to cross the platform, cross the abyss and solve the puzzle switch to move forward.
Lucky for you, a Demo for Lonely was released to Steam TODAY, April 24th, 2019. It can be found on the right side of the page from the Lonely link above.
Bonus Game #3 Escape Lala is a FREE game released to Steam 2 MONTHS AGO, February 14th, 2019 and has 45 Positive reviews.
Developed by DuckbearLab, it's a point-and-click adventure escape room game with a nostalgic feel. It's not just any ordinary escape room game, it's full of charming handcrafted pixel-art graphics and animations. It contains puzzles with magical twists that take inspiration from classic point-and-click adventure games of the 90's. You wake up inside a magical cave, full of mysteries. You remember nothing, but you know one thing for sure, you need to escape. Escape Lala. When you start to struggle, keep looking for the gold coins scattered around the cave and use them to reveal hints. Try to find them all and use them sparingly to get a better score at the end of the game.
Some dude name Paolo Paglianti said this about Escape Lala, "Every now and then comes some title that reminds us of the times of LucasArts and Sierra. Escape Lala made us relive that magic."
Miss the good old point-and-click adventure games? Then you'll definitely love Escape Lala 2 which is still under development.
I-r0k reacted to BuckGup in Egg Drop Advice
Take the cups and surround the egg with them but make a hinge out of fabric and tape so you can easily remove it. Then make 2 holes in each cup and crush them. Uncrush them and use the straws as a buffer between the cup edge and the egg. Next place the fabric between the egg and the cups and straw. You could use the Popsicles as weight so it falls a certain way or make skis on each cup for a larger surface area
I-r0k got a reaction from ARikozuM in Borderlands 3 will be exclusively on the Epic store for the first 6 months
The game will also be available on PS4 and Xbox. This seems to be just Epic trying to gain a better foothold to compete with Steam. Many games are also moving platforms due to the reduced cuts that Epic takes. I think that I’m not going to buy the game anyway, mostly because I don’t have $60. I do see how this could upset some people thought. What are your thoughts? Is it a good idea to have exclusive 6 month contacts like this?
