Just got The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind for free

The OpenMW site said it’s only free the 25th, which was yesterday. But their site says till the 31st. GBAtemp said it was only free two days ago. Their site said “yesterday” for the posted date and that was yesterday.

Looks like Lutris doesn’t work. Won’t open the Bethesda Launcher.

That sucks, I have to boot Windows to download it.

Takes a long time to see the sleep doctor

There’s a good chance I won’t be alive next year. I’ll only live to be 30. Well, then I know how I die, from the lack of oxygen. Unless I get murdered before then.

Steam won’t open in Linux if the Steam Controller is plugged in by USB

Was seeing if there were any firmware updates. Something should popup if there is.

Guess my USB bluetooth adapter doesn’t support low power bluetooth. I still have the dongle it came with. And the USB adapter says low energy. No idea why it doesn’t show up in the bluetooth manager thing.

And it works now, plugged it into a USB 2.0 port on the front of my computer. Probably interference where the hub is. Or it doesn’t like USB 3.0 hubs.

Why is the text on my dishwasher smaller to my camera?

Sitting in my chair, the text looks bigger then zoomed in at 100% on the image of it. I thought cameras could see more then people.

Can I get glasses for my Panasonic lens? If I take my glasses off, I can’t see the text at all. It’s a blurry mess.

18mm could be sharper, but the text is still smaller then what I see.

Funny, the lens is wider in the RAW file.

I tested every aperture from f5.6 to f16. The settings were mostly the same, just increased the flash power for the ones over f8. It doesn’t get sharper after f8, f9 is mostly the same, after f11 it gets worse.

18mm f8

The picture on the fridge isn’t sharp.

You can’t see the aperture on the gallery, the privacy plugin kills all the EXIF info. I looked at the plugin, didn’t see anything that would do that.

Is the text the correct size with my Panasonic 25mm? Or is it 20mm? It’s 25mm.

I use the privacy plugin, so bots can’t guess the filename, and view it. Only if it’s public. I changed the permissions on the folder too.

The picture I took with my phone, is blurry, the text is on the dishwasher. If you zoom in. The text looks darker, not faded like with my camera.

You can get a USB add on card with multiple busses

Not the first one I found on eBay, it’s been discontinued. You need an x4 slot, I only have x1 slots open. So it would be pointless.

Only two x1 slots, I could get two USB 3.0 cards, and put one in each x1 slot. Do they make them with one port? I could ignore the other ports on it.

And only USB 3.1 supports UASP? Wonder why some of my drives say they support that then, don’t think they are advertised as USB 3.1. Also, smart works for some of my USB drives.

It only works with one drive, the one in the dock. What do you need smart for anyways?

Road Redemption gameplay video

You’d think they could do better for 2017, that’s when the game came out, according to YouTube. But running into some stuff, like on the side of the street, doesn’t make you crash. And the wheels don’t exactly spin off road.

Must of selected the wrong sound card. I did disable the music, so if it had sound, I probably wouldn’t get a strike. Music in games is forbidden. Even live streams. Unless you pay for the rights. You’d need a lot of money to do that.

720p is smaller then 1440p. And the smallest sized 1440p re encode I got, doesn’t really look that great. No point in using that, if the quality isn’t good. I have a shitty upload speed, and a shitty 1 TB data limit.

The Steam Controller is my favorite controller, it has triggers on the bottom. There’s a controller config that makes one of them attack to the left, and the other one to the right.

Don’t update dtkwidget in Manjaro

If you are using the unstable branch, and Deepin. If there’s no Deepin updates, and you upgrade, the dock will restart itself constantly, it’s crashing.

Checked Arch Linux’s site, there’s no newer deepin-dock. Some other dependency it has could require updating. There’s a bunch more updates now.

I’ll reboot after it’s done, there’s also a kernel update.

That didn’t take long for the dock to crash, after rebooting. If I downgrade that package again, will it break any of the other stuff updated? So it looks like Arch Linux updates dependencies, but not what requires them.

VAAPI works with OBS Studio

If you have to video cards, and want to use the video cards the games are running on, start it with “DRI_PRIME=1 LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=radeonsi obs”. Not sure if the LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME is needed.

Oh and Window Capture doesn’t work, it’ll crash. Just use Screen Capture, and then make a shortcut to start and stop the recording. I recorded the menu in Road Redemption for not very long, just to see if it works.

Nope, still doesn’t work using the other video card. Looks like I’ll have to use my CPU. Didn’t work with the CPU either, slow motion. Once the race starts, shortly after.

Might just need to use 30 FPS, SimpleScreenRecorder worked, but I left it at 30 FPS.

237.7 MB seems high for a around 2 minute recording. That’s after recording to HEVC. Probably need to change the qp setting, apparently 30 isn’t high enough. Maybe 40.

And why does Deepin Dock keep restarting itself?

Apple made a credit card

I doubt I’d qualify, doesn’t come out till the summer.

If you pay it right away, or all of it before the due date, you might get 0 interest. I’d use it instead of my debit card, to collect credit. But I’d pay it off right after I made a purchase.

No new hardware today. They did announce a new iPad Air and iPad mini days ago on their site.

Pretty sure there was an iPad Air in the past, so they are reusing that name. Unless I hopped from a different reality into this one.

How much will their Arcade cost? Sounds like it runs on your device, because you can play offline. Looks like some fun games.

Wireless being insecure sucks

I was blowing dust out of my computer, and I ended up tripping on the network cables. Luckily nothing is broken.

Should get another switch with VLANs, and then just use the longer cable, it won’t be up as high as the shorter one.
