find out why you can not concentrate on your job. You're too tired? go to sleep earlier in the evening
If you are a consultant or running your own business and you can not find a way to actually force yourself to do your work, then consider the fact that you might not be cut out for indenpendancy. Nothing to be ashamed about, and good of you to try it, but being an independant worker means much MORE work and much stronger self-discipline than being a salary man. Try to get a job which pleases you with a fix monthly income and paid vacation. You will be a lot happier.
tl;dr: find out why you can not concentrate on your work, act to fix the problem. Do not drop some aderall, as they will NOT make you happier, just more "productive".
now, dear AC, your turn
you mean the correct way to go offline while being online
The mind boggles.
The point that you have to be *online* to be able to go *offline* is already absurd enough, don't you think? Especially when talking about single player games (or single player mode in otherwise multiplayer capable games). Generally you play those games "offline" when you can not go online to start with (because your connection died for example)
Steam might play in offline mode. More often than not this is not the case. Believe me, I used to have a very bad internet connection and the times I was not able to play anything from my Steam account when the connection was down and Schteam was telling me to log in far outweighted the times when it happily remembered that I had played just one day before.
Steam is not nearly as evil as EA, but it still has an intrusive and often obnoxious DRM (Along with an atrocious EULA).
yes. I t runs emacs nicely, although the startup time can be a tad bit long (20-30sec in my case), depending on your
One of my two rpis (both are ~old~ ones with only 256MB RAM) is running apache, mysql, dovecot, postfix and bitlbee. It also has weechat (connected to bitlbee and 4 channels on #freenode) and mutt running 24/7. Additionally roundcubemail is installed. Again, depending on the amount of mails to sort and show, RCmail can be a bit slow. This is the rpi I use emacs the most on, mostly to edit config files, write mails and code a bit on side projects when bored at work.
The trick is to change the memory allocation depending on your useage. In the case of this mail server I set the mem to 240/16 as it is headless.(16MB for the GPU is apparently the absolute minimum you can allocate).
