GEMS seems to work good so far!

Hello! If you haven’t heard yet, me and a friend (well, mostly me) are working on a basic, FOSS Operating System called GEMS. Here’s a quick demo of some of our progress (Warning! It’s LOUD):

A demo of GEMS under a QEMU virtual machine in Pop!_OS.

If you would like to help, fork/download the source code, compile it yourself, or just download a pre-built release, you can go to my GitHub (in the footer) and go to my GEMS repo.

Besides that, have fun!

Why I decided to destroy TVI and end my “friendship” with FlyingDuck3121 /DSchott1234

Because:

  • DS was a bad friend and kept on censoring me multiple times for no reason, even though it wasn’t even that bad.
    • We both know I am American, thus have freedom of speech
    • Would censor me even if I said something like “TVI is getting boring, here’s why…” with very justifiable reasoning
  • TVI was the most boring, most strict group I’ve ever been to.
    • They are a bunch of boring nerds.
    • Their group activities are boring as well.
    • They are strict AF.
  • TVI is just overall not fun, it has lost it’s magic.
    • Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t been to TVI in the early days. (Back when things weren’t as strict
  • To give them a message they cannot ignore.

And that’s why I destroyed TVI and ended my “friendship” with the owner. I tried talking with him the time before last (i.e. before when everyone was like “FU YOU ARE LYING” or “ZOMG SPARKSAMMY.COM IS DANGEROUS” even though I wasn’t/it isn’t.), but no resolution was ever formed.

How to get a setup like mine (as of May 1st 2020)

What you need:

A Pop!_OS laptop with internet and Parsec client logged in

A Windows PC with internet Parsec server logged in (same app as the client, hosting is just a Windows-only feature as of the writing of this post)

1 HDMI cable (2 if you have an NVIDIA card and want to hook the Laptop to a display, if you don’t have an extra HDMI cable you can just use the display of the laptop)

  • Unplug everything from the Windows PC except HDMI (if you have NVIDIA), Internet, and a spare mouse.
  • Hook up a keyboard, mouse, headset, etc to your laptop.
  • Open Parsec
  • Connect to the same network if you can’t get port forwarding to work
  • It should automatically find your desktop.
  • You are done! Click connect on the one with your desktop name once you are ready to use Windows.

Zydrec said he would visit my site, but he didn’t!

Well at least he didn’t goof this one up… right? (Update he did.)

ZYDREC EXPOSED:

He has nothing to be exposed about….

…why Zydrec?

Turns out his giveway (whoops can’t say that due to Zydrec’s censorship) was fake. Proof:



(Yes that’s proof I won the giveaway and it was fake lol, it was for 50 dollars.)

Also he said he was potentially going to visit my site, but soon after he ended the stream… …hmmmmmm.

Of course, this does not mean he’s a bad person. OK maybe it does, but he’s still my friend. 🙂

How to install ROBLOX/GeForce Now in Linux

Just a quick note before the post: If this looks familiar, that’s because it is. It is highly based off of my old post from my old blog.

WARNING: THIS REQUIRES A BEEFY COMPUTER! ALSO: GENYMOTION IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. DO NOT USE IT FOR BUSINESS. ALSO: THIS IS MEANT FOR POP!_OS…

  • Download GenyMotion from here
  • Reboot
  • Set up GenyMotion and choose the Google Pixel 3 on Android 9
  • Install Android Oreo ARM Package shown here (Drag and drop)
  • Reboot VIRTUAL DEVICE
  • Install GAPPS (Click the button to the right, near the top of the window, marked OpenGApps)
  • Reboot VIRTUAL DEVICE
  • Download the latest ROBLOX apk here and/or GeForce Now from here.
    • Hint: type “com.roblox.client” without quotes for the ROBLOX client.
  • Install (Drag and drop)
  • Once you have done all those steps, it should work!
    • Disclaimer: You might have to do a ton of captchas!

How to: Add a USB controller

Ok so basically you have to add yourself to the group “vboxusers” by running:

sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER

and rebooting. Then download the VirtualBox Extensions Pack and install it. Lastly, go to your Virtual Machine Settings for your device (should be the name of your Genymotion instance), then go to USB, change it to USB 2.0, and add your USB controller (Mine was called “GAME For Windows” because mine was a bootleg XBOX 360 Controller made for Windows.) Apply changes, click OK, BUT DO NOT START IT FROM VIRTUALBOX. Instead, close VirtualBox, and start it from GenyMotion. Ta-da! It should now work!

Internet is down. It sucks.

Hello, world! 👋

I hate it when my internet doesn’t work, space don’t you? I mean it really sucks a lot. Darn it. 🤦‍♂️

Shoot, it sucks so bad that didn’t even get to voice chat my great pal Oklomsy! Plus I was only able to use my phone for internet, because my mom doesn’t want me tethering. I don’t blame her, but it still sucks a lot. 🤷‍♂️

Oh well, I guess I ought to take a nap. Good night. 😴
