Parasurv's Weekly (13th October 2018)

I had a busy Friday, but I didn't want another empty week. I rather release a day later, than none at all, now. As usual if you want to follow this linkblog, you can do it via RSS.

Thank you, and have a great weekend!

Bryan Lunduke's new video about Google: We Need to Have a Talk About Google.

We can say goodbye Gnome 3's application menu soon as the next version (3.32). I have to say I never understood the decision behind it, so I am happy that they revert it back, even though it took them years to realize their mistake.

I wrote about some of the games I recommend in this week's GOG sale. There are some really great gems in there, and you can still grab them if you want. Disney also has a sale on GOG, so tons of LucasArts classics are cheap. From that list I can recommend Tron 2.0, which is a hidden gem, and one of the most underrated FPS of all-time.

Encrypted Evernote Alternative Turtl v0.7 Includes Rewritten Server, New Spaces Feature - haven't looked at Turtl for a while, but I remember as good alternative to the proprietary prison, called Evernote. Lots of new stuff in the new update.
