@0066cc I really enjoyed your blog post about the ThinkPad X230 (I follow your blog via RSS). I previously wrote about the X220 in a similar way [1], so it's fun to see other ThinkPad X Series enthusiasts in the wild. Thanks for the write up, and enjoy your X230!

@dan Hey Daniel! I use Zwift on Windows on my X220, and it works pretty well. Granted, the framerate is not great (probably ~15FPS when there's a lot of cyclists around), but it's more than enough to make me happy.

Not sure about Linux though, never tried it, but this seems promising:

I see a bunch of tweets where software developers rave about the performance of M1-equipped Macs (it's impressive indeed).

PSA for (Web) devs: not everyone has the latest and fastest machine. Test your stuff on older, slower machines to foster empathy and provide great UX 🤟

Excellent interactive tutorial on cameras and lenses by @BCiechanowski (thank you for taking the time to build this!).

I learned about Bayer filters, what will you learn about?
