OP made a normal post. This is uncalled for and rude. Please try to interact with others in a more friendly manner.

I am not an expert and just cobbled this together based on a couple of searches but my guess would be that the adapter is supported by your current kernel drivers but not as well as whatever drivers Windows 10 was able to fetch. It looks to me like MX uses Debian Stable sources, so you may be able to update your kernel beyond what is normally available and see if that helps. If that doesn’t work, based on this post and this post on the TP-Link forums, there’s a github repo that you may be able to install a better driver from. To my eyes there’s fairly good instructions there, including the potential need to disable the driver you’re already using in favor of the new one once you build it.

Hi! This is a good post, however we don’t typically allow copying and pasting the full article content into the body of the post. I’m going to remove this post, but please feel free to repost it with just a link and a summary. Thanks!

Hi! This submission is not well suited for the World News community. Depending on the type of discussion you were going to have, it would probably be better suited for our Humanities and Cultures community or our Socialism community. I am going to remove the post here, but please consider resubmitting to one of those communities. Thanks!

This is not a nice way to talk to people. Please try to be more kind to others going forward.

I bought a used HP Elitebook on eBay for a similar purpose. I can browse and do video calls on a bigger screen when the fancy strikes. Pretty much any used business laptop should work. I think I paid about $300 for mine and I paid extra for particular hardware I thought was neat but you don’t have to. Only thing to keep in mind is the battery will likely be pretty worn.

Hey y’all! This thread has sparked a lot of discussion and it is obviously a very tense topic being discussed at a tense time in the world. With the way the thread has been going, the mod team doesn’t feel we can moderate this thread thoroughly enough to make it follow our rules, so I am going to lock it.

Hey, this comment reads like you’re just dunking on another user. If that is not what you meant to do, please try to communicate more clearly, and if that is what you meant to do, please refrain while commenting on Beehaw in order to be(e) nice. Thanks!

Hey this is a great contribution, just wanted to request that in the future you try to have a more descriptive title. Totally understand that it might have slipped your mind on this one, this is a charged topic to say the least, just a note for the future. Thanks!

Hey, I know this can be an issue that strikes a nerve. That said, acknowledging nuance is important to having a productive conversation. Judging everyone by a set standard and having unkind words for not meeting that standard even before you know much about the person you are engaging with is not going to be productive, and it’s not particularly nice either.

To be clear, I do not intend to ask you to tolerate oppression. By all means you should oppose oppression strenuously! But being harsh to someone you disagree with online is not the way to do that. In the future, please try your best to disengage from the conversation for a bit until you are in a better headspace.

I’m not sure what the intent on this post is, but between not being able to find much else about this game and the installation instructions including using a VPN to pretend to be in Indonesia, I’m suspicious malware may be at play. Going to take this down for now.

Others have mentioned Stormgate, but I think the upcoming Tempest Rising is more in the Command & Conquer vein

Gonna be honest, this comment further down explains why you should have some compassion even on posts that seem obvious to you: https://beehaw.org/comment/883359

Consider taking this approach in the future.

Ah, makes sense with the world aspect, but still a better fit for the politics community.

This is not a terribly nice thing to say. So much of raising children is cultural or environmental, and many people go on to be great parents after having bad parents themselves. Also, this comment gives some eugenics promoting vibes. Please try to communicate more clearly in the future to avoid giving that impression. Thanks!

This isn’t really a news article, and it’s by a US source about a US topic. Please try to post things like this to Politics or maybe US News in the future. Thanks!

I’m not sure exactly what you’re hooking it up to, but I had good success with this Hauppauge USB tuner hooked up to one of those flat antennas. I used it on Ubuntu Server 20.04 if I recall correctly, and they have a PPA as well as fairly helpful Linux instructions. Some of their other products might do the satellite and cable channels as well as over the air, but I have no experience with it, so your mileage may vary.

Hey, this post looks like it is just an ad for an ebay listing, which doesn’t really fit in the gaming community we are trying to build on Beehaw. I am going to remove it here, but if that is not the intention, please repost it with additional context. Thanks!

This is a great resource, thank you for posting it! However, it would likely be a better fit for the Beehaw Programming community. Please post links like this in that community in the future!

Hey, this isn’t a terrible article but the source website is questionable at best. I am going to remove this topic, but if you have an article from a more reputable source please post it!

I suppose that’s what I get for just doing a quick google 🙃

That is really interesting though, my understanding is that Doom 2016 is known for running pretty well and achieving high framerates, or at least that was the sense I got from tech youtube when I watching that more. I wonder what the devs were doing in that case.

Not a game dev but I’ve done some programming and I love games so I’ll take a stab. There’s a few reasons I can think of:

  1. That’s how the engine they’re using works. Game engines take a long time to develop, and so if you’re using one off the shelf or from a previous project, it may be from a time when tying behavior to the frame rate was a low overhead tool for timing that would cause few if any issues. Given that Wolfenstein is a Bethesda title and they’ve made many games with similar engine level limitations, this seems most likely to me for this particular case.
  2. They never intended to release it that way, and just set it up that way early in development to start getting to the real gameplay work. Then the deadline came around and it wasn’t a high priority in terms of getting the game out the door.
  3. Probably doesn’t apply to Wolfenstein, but for indie games that have one or only a few developers, none of those people may have done much programming before, instead being more focused on other aspects of game design. So if you’re learning as you go, there’s a good chance some hacky things will make it in to the final product.

Sure, people are more than their political views, but I don’t know that that means political comments made in tech content should just be ignored. The people making the content put them there deliberately, and there’s enough tech content out there that at the very least if that bothers you, it’s easily possible to find something that doesn’t include those comments, if not something that includes political commentary that isn’t bothersome.

On top of that, what some might call identity politics, others would call minority groups getting together and demanding that their voices be heard the same as others. Political divisions often reflect real life experiences and how they differ, and the only way to just ignore the political differences is to ignore important issues is people’s lives.

Identity politics is also a 2 way street. I’m not familiar with tech podcasters specifically, but I imagine they’re not getting the same kind of push back if the political commentary is putting minorities in a negative light.

What I am using far too many words to say is, dismissing the concerns of the OP because they sound a little bit too much like identity politics is not a nice way to contribute to this thread, and I encourage you to reexamine your post and think of nicer ways to contribute in the future.

Hey, I know this is probably a topic you are very passionate about. However the mod team is starting to see a pattern of behavior from you n terms of failing to assume good faith and turning arguments toward personal attacks. This is not okay going forward. While Beehaw is much larger than it was a few weeks ago, it is still very small; you will have to interact with everyone you speak with again, and there are no points for the biggest slam dunk on someone else in a comment thread. Consider if you would say the things you are writing to your next door neighbor, knowing that you’ll have to see them again every day for potentially years to come.

This comment could stand to be nicer and/or more open to further discussion, like some of the others in the thread. Please try to incorporate that into your future comments.

The thing that upsets me most about this article is that when I try other search engines, I still find myself needing to use Google to find certain things. Usually that’s information or questions and not products, but if it’s this bad for Google I can’t imagine it’s any easier on the others.

Probably want to play with enemies off though. I find with enemies on the constant possibility of attack makes it hard to focus on audio content, plus combat requires your attention when it happens.

Hey y’all, this is a great post, but please try to keep topics relating to the reddit blackout on the appropriate megathread, which should be pinned here: https://beehaw.org/post/550898

Going to lock this to focus further discussion.

Hey, not sure if you’re maybe more used to Mastodon or something, but the hashtags in the title don’t have any particular effect here. Not sure what your goal with them was exactly, but figured I’d let you know.
