Wisconsin Republicans block PFAS cleanup until polluters are granted immunity
  • One of the most egregious WI GOP state senators for blocking funding - Duey Stroebel - is facing a tough race for re-election. Help his opponent, Jodi Habush Sinykin, with your time or your donation so that Wisconsinites can stop him personally and change the state law so it can’t happen again.

  • Definitely garlic mustard. Should be purple at the base of the stems, and the root will have a bit of a hook to it.

    I spend a lot of time clearing this stuff in my wooded yard, as it’s highly invasive.

  • I’m not, but I have several Jewish friends. I also live close to rural batshit Crazyville. I can hear the difference in “Jew” when it’s said at the Jewish Cultural Center vs. at the townie bar with disdain, for sure. Hard R territory.

  • RGB Controller Replacement for Corsair Lighting Node Pro

    Manjaro Linux / OpenRGB 0.9 / Asus Maximus X Hero Motherboard

    I've got a Corsair Lighting Node Pro with 5 ML120 fans attached. Since moving to Linux a couple years ago and attempting to run OpenRGB, the controller seems to be bricked. I've swapped controllers and had the same experience, tried different USB ports, SATA power connections, etc. I've also tried all of the hard reset / firmware update guidance out there for these, but it never does anything other than hang OpenRGB on detection. In Windows, the controller isn't detected at all by either OpenRGB or iCue.

    Edit: worth mentioning, I also tried a Corsair Commander XT controller this week - the fans lit, but OpenRGB (package and AppImage versions) did not detect it at all.

    I'd like to get a RGB or aRGB fan solution that works well with OpenRGB in Linux - ideally just a replacement controller that plays nice with five 4-pin RGB Corsair fans, but I'll swap the fans out as well if need be.

    Do you have any recommendations? Thanks!

    Guys, it looks like nvidia has another faithful fan...
  • I tried doing a TimeShift restore last week for another software issue, and nvidia drivers crapped the bed (again). Decided it was time to bite the bullet and swapped out my 1080 Ti with a 7700 XT. Did a clean install of Manjaro, and it was eerie how simple it was to get everything including Wayland to work. Should’ve done it two years ago.

  • Great article and explanation on why Proton and its components are such a game changer. Thanks for sharing!

    Ironically, Nier Automata is only listed as “playable” on Steam Deck.
