Finally free from Windows

23 March 2016 - 05:57 AM

Last week I decided to finally ditch Windows in favour of Linux.  I've had enough of Windows 10 and Microsoft, and have for a while, but I've put up with it due to gaming.  I found out a few weeks ago that half my steam library has support for Linux and since then two more games have been added.  The performance for games isn't as good as Windows for the most part, but I can still hit at least 60fps in almost every game.  However, with Vulkan on the horizon, performance on newer games should rival that of Windows, and probably exceed due to having less overhead.  Not only that, but Linux doesn't spy on you like Windows does, doesn't force updates, doesn't install never versions without consent and doesn't reboot to install updates while you're in the middle of using it.  Oh, and it's free.  If anyone was ever considering switching I highly recommend it.  I picked Mint 17.3 as my distro after trying a few out.  It's kind of a lighter version of Ubuntu.

Awesome birthday gift.

My family pitched in and got me this painting for my birthday. It's one of 50 that were made. The artitst does up the paintings, then you can get them printed out a variety of ways. You can check out the rest of the guy's work here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/orioto


Getting a 3DS, recommend a game for me.

20 February 2016 - 12:19 PM

So I'm finally getting a 3DS, but need a game to go with it while I wait for DQVII to come out. I'd like to get an RPG of some sort but I can't decide what to get. I was thinking about Bravely Default, Fire Emblem or Tales of the Abyss, though I'm open to just about anything. The eShop is always an option for now as well. Any suggestions on what I should get?

Finally some success in the ice.

Today, I finally caught some decent fish while ice fishing. I went out a couple times last year and didn't catch anything. This season started late and I wasn't having much luck until today. Here's some pics of my catches. I kept one walleye, the other fish were released. I don't eat fish but my wife wanted to try one and we'll see if the kids like it.
