I find it remarkable how many empty (and mostly identical Unity-based) FPS games are available on the Google Play Store. I would think it was hopeless, but: Max Payne was excellent, and FZ9 Timeshift was creative. There is absolutely no argument for not making a solid storyline, like with Doom 3 or the Thief games.

Had a page hang in Firefox. I closed it. Closing Gnome, it says I have an app that is hanging.
I know, kill it.
Then Systemd tells me that it has a stop job that is unfinished - now I can wait.
Remember when we said that we loved how the system does not hang because we can kill the processes directly? Yeah.
Okay, so I am getting old. :wq!
There's a trillion dollars business on mass surveillance: this is the one to blame, not yourself, not your relations, but the militaro-industrial complex that creates both Frontex and Smart Cities. These are the same people.
