Welcome to BSD Unplugged, where Chris misreads KDE release notes in the preshow! BSDs have had brightness control for decades, but desktop widgets/plasmoids for it were 3rd-party addons rather than prebundled in KDE/Plasma. This FreeBSD integration is a minor push, but it shows FreeBSD as a 1st-class target thanks to open collaboration w/KDE&FreeBSD projects. I wish more BSDers dogfooded their desktops *Allan*. For those of us who already do, it's fairly seamless for most workflows, esp. w/ZFS!

This is a repeat zipcode that you actually missed yhe hint on, its for Wapakoneta Ohio which is the birthplace of Neal Armstrong and location of the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. Also since you asked I messed around with my nix config a little too much and would generate a huge amount of old generations on top of automagic daily updates that took place at 4 am thatbwas removed in an earlier commit. Anyways I'm off the nix train because theres a few business apps I need to run that Nix cant. glhf

Take all my Fountain Sats for "Cheese Moy*, pleeeeaase.... but stop saying these words. I had to chuckle through my whole 20minute-commute. Soooo funny hearing Chris when he reads names.

joined, will boost once in a while, just had time to listen to the windows episode, LOL. windows for me is like adobe flash, I don’t want it anywhere near my computer, but something I want to run depends on it being installed.
