^ Cool.  I take it you've seen my posts about the "Less Stuff = More Happiness" TED Talk?

I've done that, renting bedrooms in mobile homes for going on 15 years now.  Definitely doable; you just have to "reduce your vision", as an FBI beancounter told Mulder in one episode of The X-Files, and accept the fact that some landlords/roommates aren't "solid citizens".  (Here's a tip:  If a prospective landlord/roommate's cell phone number turns up in a search of Backpage ads, pass.)

There's a story that definitely needs to be told.

it's about 9 square metres.
my biggest mobile home's living space was 2m x 5m.
yes, it's doable. but ( abig BUT for me): i park my mobile home in a nice spot. i open the door and see peace and beauty. my toilet and bathroom are outside.
also i learned some invaluable lessons about housekeeping then, amongst which: for every new item that comes in, an old one has to go out.

Unfortunately, it took me a long time to learn that lesson.  I'm planning and hoping to free myself from my ball and chain soon.

@pvsage...By myself, a big maybe, but definitely not with other people.  I need my space and quiet.  I also had my fill of roommates from my time in the military; been there, done that, and don't desire to revisit.

Anyway, I found some more inspiring videos and sites along the lines of mobile living and doing with less.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Been interested in how video drivers work, and how they fit in with the proprietary hardware/software of chip makers and vendors. For example, I wasn't sure how AMD, nVidia, or Intel all handled support for FOSS software. So I found this pretty good article giving a bit of high level detail:

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^ Nice article, thanks for the link.

Sadly, it is a little out of date now -- the new Intel Skylake cards also require proprietary firmware blobs for full performance sad

So how do you think this is going to play out? Will there be a group who reverse engineers the Skylake cards and make drivers for them to interface with the linux kernel?

No, the firmware is already available:
https://packages.debian.org/jessie-back … sc-nonfree

Just to note: firmware is not the same as drivers.

See https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware

Also, the cards are usable without it but all the features are not accessible.

It's simply a matter of principle.

I would like to be able to browse all of the source code that makes up the binary packages on the system, notwithstanding the fact that I can't make any sense of it smile

See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/philosophy.html for more on the politics.

So I'm not actually sure if the author is serious or not, or if this is supposed to be tongue and cheek humor...either way it's a funny read..

he (safe to assume he's male after reading) really means it.
the first paragraph says it all:

Stop being a sissy. Every time you sudo a command, you deserve to have your man card taken away.
You heard me. It's time to stop being a little girl. It's time to start using your computer like a man.

and so on...
teenage (maybe outgrown) arrogance coupled with an elevated testosteron level.... roll
even if it had nothing to do with computers, i would hate this person after reading that article.

Speaking of Poes, this is one of the biggest ones:

Since you know going in that it's a satirical forum, any offense you take to it is entirely your own.

I used to take offense to a lot of things, but I got tired of carrying it around.
