Showerthought: a single-page homescreen is deterministic in operation. After accessing the home screen, there is a deterministic sequence of inputs that will always open a certain app. Combined with fingerprint unlock, this leads to quick, sight-free operation to open a workspace before your phone has even left your pocket.

Context: I’ve loved my single-page homescreen in the...what, decade I’ve used it on iOS, and I started wondering why a decade-younger me found it best.

@envgen ....I see what you meant when you tooted about cramped keyboards, holy cow that's tight

are you brave enough to post a pic of your room, no tidying

@envgen Honestly, anyone spouting such hypocritically facetious platitudes gets no respect from me. It's aggravating, condescending, and careless all at once; and, on top of that, it sets a horrible false expectation of what care really is (and who embodies such traits).

this is lolserial. first proposed by fail0verflow in 2013 as part of their attempts to get serial communication with the Wii U to aid in hacking.

code to do it just hit the linux-loader repo

@radikalgrafitio @envgen Seconding the RX 580 recommendation, if only because I have a massive bias towards AMD cards for unrelated reasons. You can use utilities like MSI Afterburner to force the card to shut off its fan for silent operation below a certain temperature.

I've done this successfully to have a card that's silent for music recording but powerful (if loud) for video rendering.

@envgen Difference comes down to rated clockspeed.

The 3800x is guaranteed to be a higher-quality chip so it can run at higher clockspeeds. You can likely overclock a 3700x to 3800x speeds by hand, though - it just depends on if you get a higher or lower quality chip.

I saved the money when I built mine and bought a 2600 instead of a 2600x...overclocked just fine.

@Whovian9369 sounds like a system config error; doesn't do that on stock ubuntu
