Published on in 🔗 Links

Underwater data centers powered by 100% renewable energy are a very interesting idea. It is also noteworthy that they seem to be much more reliable than conventional DCs and that an “unreliable grid” isn’t such a big problem.

GNOME’s games are awesome

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

I almost never play computer games, but what I sometimes like are classic logic games like Minesweeper or Sudoku. And I must say, the versions from GNOME (on Linux), GNOME Mines and GNOME Sudoku are really nice. Simple design, plain and focused on the game with the most important features. I have also just discovered on the GNOME Wiki that there are a number of other simple games available, like 2048, Four in a row or Chess (Chess is probably not so simple). I install most apps via Flatpak and Flathub, but most distributions should also have them directly in their repositories. The advantages of Flatpak are that it is very easy to install and you always get the latest version.

One problem that can occur when you are in a technology-focused bubble is that you often feel the desire to buy new hardware, even though you already have everything you need.
