Apple is investigating a way to charge the phone from body heat alone. Now you just have to figure out where to stuff the phone where it's surrounded by body heat...

Videos got me curious tho. So since I'm planning on adding a second NVMe drive soon. Think I'll try to dual-boot for a while and tinker with Linux.
Any recommendations for a good "it just works as much as possible" for gaming distro?
On my Nvidia 3060 equipped laptop The Burrito of Pontification recommended PoP OS because they make a specific Nvidia version (Pop!_OS ISO Image (NVIDIA)) that requires less handholding to get Nvidia up and running.
I gathered bits and pieces from the internet including following sites.https://bln364.com/dual-boot-pop-os-and-windows-10/ Did not use grub to handle the dual boot menu and went with PoPOS dual boot menu called "systemd-boot" and to add the Windows Boot Manager as a choice to systemd-boot I had to do the following because DELL did some weirdness in the Bios.
make Windows appear in the boot menu
Basically I had to mount the 250 meg (Or whatever size small partition your system has) windows efi partition and copied the Microsoft folder to linux partitions /boot/efi/EFI
Also had an issue with the system clock but it was easily remedied by googling it.Get the system clock the same in both Windows and Linux:
Fixing the System Clock
Windows and Linux store their time in the UEFI firmware differently. This can cause the clock to become desynchronized when you switch from one OS to the other.
The solution i used was to fix it in Linux, forcing it to work the same way as Windows. Set the option using this command: timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 --adjust-system-clock

This is the exact reason I do not associate with "gun enthusiasts". I do not want to be tainted by their stupidity even by adjacency. I grew up with firearms and I own firearms. They are tools, not fetish items, or things around to build one's identity. Those that fetishize them and/or build their identity around them are the very last people I want holding any kind of firearm.

They are making more money trudging along than they would finishing. What's the incentive for them to actually complete the game any more?

I just think it's interesting that he gets to decide whether he is staying or going. The board, the share holders...they are so addicted to this man's 30 year money making machine that they aren't even asking for his resignation or firing him. Even Papa John didn't get to make that call. Then again, Ubisoft kinda worked the same way...with the changes stopping just short of the top floor.

It's kind of a strange law, but it's not like it will add a ton to the cost. A level 2 station runs about $500, and wiring it up while you are already running the wiring through the rest of the house will have a minimal impact on the cost...basically just the cost of the wire which might be like $100-$200.
