When I thought up the idea of weekly updates, they were meant to keep me going. In a word, motivation. I’d know they’re always a week away at most, and I would strive to have something to talk about. So far I’ve kept to that, and I’m proud of myself.
Now I just have to work on actually talking about my games instead of using this as a soapbox for me to rant on.
THAT SAID: Linux.
I love Linux. It’s free, it’s open, and I get to feel all elitist in the presence of Windows users for no legitimate reason.
Not only that, but I just feel more productive in Linux. It’s akin to wearing a suit: It looks snazzy, and it makes you feel like you’re here for buisness.
Well, that’s the theory anyway. I do tend to get things done in Linux much more often than in Windows. But every now and then Linux gets in the way. A task will come up that sounds oh-so-simple, and is anything but. Suddenly you’re spending hours on what should have taken moments.
Screen rotation is one of those things. At least, it is if you have an Nvidia graphics card, GNOME Shell, two monitors, and only want to rotate one of them.
This has been my obsession for the past three days. I recently picked up a second monitor, and really wanted to use it in portrait mode. However, despite all my efforts, I could find no reasonable solution to create the setup I wanted. The only solution I could find at all—to use Xinerama—was incompatible with GNOME Shell.
Come back next week when I attempt to drive my friend with an English Major insane by using even more one sentence paragraphs.
She hates it so much.
