  1. That I understood, it's just... spam of what? Usually there is a link to somewhere, or a mention of somebody who paid the spammers to get promoted. I'm not familiar with spam which is just pure insanity
  2. I’m your stereotypical Linuxoid and even I am not refined enough to use it for games. IMHO it makes more sense to just admit that this is one (single) task which is better done by Windows. In my opinion, an OS is (and should be treated as) but a layer between the hardware and the application. It’s the application that the user interacts with, not the OS. Hence, the quality of an OS is measured by how well it allows the application to run. For most (I’d say the overwhelming majority) of applications, Linux does a better job at this. For games – no. Thus, I do just that – treat Windows as a (thin) layer needed to run games. I have a separate SSD with Windows 10 installed, and on top of it, the only installed applications are games. Whenever I have spare time to play, I physically attach it to the motherboard, physically detach everything else (both operations boil down to pressing a button), and play the game. Since I use Windows for nothing else – even the process of buying these games is done from Linux – it is physically unable to harm (e.g. spy on) anything important I do. Even if it breaks after one of the updates, the worst thing that will happen is that I won’t be able to play games. It won’t be good, but compared to the utter catastrophe that looms above anyone using Windows for crucial tasks like work, this is nothing.
  3. Man, you know you're in for a treat with a title screen like this.
  4. I feel like a heroin junkie who finally inserts a needle in his arm after a withdrawal. My face right now:
  5. I stumbled upon this photo and for some reason I immediately imagined it on the door of Ross's apartment.

  7. My guess is that he's just running a cron job
  8. 1:01 I've been using RedNotebook since 2015 exactly how you described. It's literally a bunch of *.txt files, except it gives you automatic full-text search, word cloud and tag cloud. Right now my database is about 5 Mb. It's a freaking knowledge base of the whole last 7 years of my life and I can find anything I need in it in several seconds.
  9. AND you see DOZENS of poisonous headcrabs running around right where you are going to jump.
  10. Adding to the "secret genius" list. I skimmed through a letsplay, and apparently when you find the stolen morphine, the baddies (portrayed as if they were junkies seeking a fix) are rummaging through the crate frustratedly muttering "where the hell are the antivirals?!". Wow.
