Heroic Games Launcher is amazing!

It combines Epic Games Launcher, Amazon, and GOG game libraries, all into one free and open-source client that also works great on Linux! I don’t like Epic Game Launcher’s footprint, but like that they gave me GTA V for free. Heroic Games Launcher lets me download GTA V no problem on Windows, and it even hooks up to system wine on Fedora Linux!

Seamless BitLocker Encryption and Online Key Recovery!

I was updating my laptop’s TPM firmware the other day and was using the latest 11 Insider build. I disliked the idea of disk encryption since back in 2015 when it was confusing dealing with discard/trim and LVM on Linux, and never bothered with BitLocker by association.

It was only during that TPM update that the updater warned me about needing to suspend BitLocker; I don’t know what the alternative option was but I was more interested in actually checking if I had enabled it without noticing. It was automatic, and most importantly it wasn’t noticeable up until that point.

That is how disk encryption should be done!
