I forgot about this performance.

They blew my mind with this, really was the earliest point the 90's were trying to be born from the 80's

After watching I feel the need to install and try Trisquel GNU/Linux ( trisquel.info ) 😎

Fresh install on :
First the Dev Kit on : it’s slow to start (and to shutdown), so much memory wasted : 1.18GB 😱
Saving some memory by changing to window manager : 703MB. πŸ˜…
Then : it’s fast, 302MB + recent kernel & packages ❀️

Using my iPad Pro as a second screen for my small with the help of (a Duet open source alternative that work also on Linux).
Thanks you @PBuidenkov@twitter.com πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ for deskreen.com/ πŸ˜‡

Now I have my connected to a Core X Chroma eGPU ( RTX 3060Ti) I can do better πŸ˜…
My first submission for Photo Mode Challenge! cyberpunk.net/en/photo-mode-ch

Happy Ending : I spend some time with support, after some verification they asked me to sabotage the Device so they can send me a new one (I had to cut some cables and serial stickers).
I received the replacement device this morning, was sent from China, seem to be a all new device βœ¨πŸ‘.
So I will keep the old one for parts if need it in future, or try to repair it (but it will not look the same as we have to remove the grips and some glued parts to get access to internals).
I hope companies will work to have easier to repair devices in future. Save the planet !

It's time to shave and get my hair cut before I look like Johnny Mnemonic's preacher.

My GamePad (wolverine v2) β€˜A’ button didn’t survived to 5 month of moderate playing. Done some research, seem to be a nightmare to dismount and no spare parts sold on their web site … but I may try if contact with their support fail.
So I switched to a lot cheaper solution : the PowerA Fusion Pro 2, it seem to feel robust and easier to dismount. Of course I switched the rings and add caps to have more green πŸ˜…

I rearranged the front panel of my old desktop PC rack case. I can now easily add 4 hot plug SATA drives (3x2.5” + 1x3.5”).
Still also have USB ports and memory cards slots (switched emplacement for better access).
And testing a fresh @EndeavourOS install (clean and easy Arch πŸ˜‡).

I visited my local electronics store and back with some @adafruit stuff to keep me busy for the upcoming holidays and rainy weekends πŸ˜‡

I updated some my external USB SSD Linux boot. Actually running on my MacBook Pro 2012 : blackarchlinux / ratpoison, kitty, emacs, bpytop, mpv (to listen somafm), cava / wtfutil, firefox, pcmanfm

Power outage tonight, my entire neighborhood has been off for over an hour and is expected to last until 3am. But it could be worse: still have a weak 3G signal to connect πŸ˜…
All the USB power banks I have at home will come in handyπŸ˜‡

It's not even an April Fool's joke. Our first day of snow in a very long time here in Paris πŸ˜‚

New mobile workstation?
No, it's just me nostalgic for the 90s who installed the window manager on his running BlackArch Linux πŸ˜‚

Tonight I will be back having fun photographing and meeting friends at concert and night party at Paris. After several years of Covid restrictions, time to live some before something worst prevent us …
