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!
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!
I’ve been making People Chow for about a week now, so I figure I’d just present how I prepare it.
These are the ingredients I use in order to prepare People Chow. Everything aside from the oil, salt, and corn flour was ordered online. The oil is Crisco Vegetable Oil. This recipe also uses water. To the right is a small scale and cup.
Once all the ingredients are in the container, I add some water, and then shake the container to mix the ingredients. I find that filling it about 1/3rd the way full gives an ideal smoothie-like texture. I use lukewarm water.
After shaking, I put it into the fridge and let it sit overnight. I find this helps improve the texture and taste quite a bit. It’s also nice to have it ready for consumption right in the morning.
I use a small, but wide glass cup (not sure on a specific name for it) for drinking People Chow, and just grab a cup of it whenever I feel like it.
If I got the calculations right, all of the ingredients shown above (minus the oil and corn flour) should last at least a month. The Whey Protein Isolate should last way longer than that. Would need about 5-6 bags of the corn flour per-month, but the price of it should be really good if you can pick it up in-store (emphasis on in-store; online prices are usually much higher, especially on Amazon strictly because of this recipe).
I recently bought a new container with a large lid opening, so that should make future batches much easier to make. It was about $4 in a local store, and it has a nice secure lid.
Here is a list of the ingredients I used and where I bought them:
MASECA Instant Corn Flour Masa Mix (Giant Eagle)
NOW Foods Whey Protein Isolate Natural Vanilla Powder (Wal-Mart)
GNC Men’s Mega Men Sport Vanilla Bean (Amazon)
NOW Foods Cal-Mag Citrate (Amazon)
BulkSupplements Pure Potassium Citrate Powder (Amazon)
Morton Iodized Salt (Giant Eagle)
Pure Choline Bitartrate Bulk Powder (Amazon)
Crisco Pure Vegetable Oil (Giant Eagle)
