TWIMC: I'm retiring this account, as I don't find enough time anymore to keep and eye on gnome land and tweeting about interesting things I find.

Follow @knurd42 and @knurd42rhfc instead, which will see more tweets about gnome and flatpak from now on.



I like #, but I really hate that the headphone connected to my Laptop remain silent after every reboot until I replug them and answer this dialog…

[bookmark=https://twitter.com/ramcq/status/1322550503360913408]Ironically/unfortunately, this is just a reuse of the tech rather than adopting Flatpak for real. It means you can't run these games from Steam inside a Flatpak any more... 🤦[/bookmark]

Feel like I need to do bikesheeding here:

Instead of "Performance", call that mode "Ludicrous speed", as everybody always wants max performance, unless when on battery.

And change "Power Saver" to "Sacrifice things I normally love to make the battery last a bit longer".

;-)
