Double-click checker

Had some issues with my Logitech G305 mouse recently: Every now and then, a click would register as a double-click. Seems to be a common issue with this mouse. Found this neat tool to test clicks.

How to make Amazon Luna work on Linux (Chrome)

I got an invite for Amazon's new "Luna" cloud-gaming-service a few days ago. To accept the invite, I had to use a VPN-node in the US, otherwise it would tell me that Luna is not supported in my region (Europe).

It seems like the region-check only occurs when signing up, not when starting  game-session. So no VPN needed after signing up.

When I tried to start a game in Chrome on Linux, Luna would refuse to start, saying my OS is not supported. I tried different user-agent-switchers to make Luna believe I was using Chrome on Windows, but strangely not all of them worked. Only the third one I tried lead to success.

So here are the steps:

 - Install this Chrome extension

 -Set your user-agent in the extension to Chrome/Windows

- Profit

Comparison/Review of PC cloud gaming services

Over the last few weeks, I've tried some of the different "cloud gaming" services that are available now.
There are many different hosting/service models on the market today. Personally, I'm not interested in a service where I have to buy games specifically for THAT service. I am interested in a platform where I can bring the games I already own (on Steam, mostly, but possibly also Epic, GOG, Uplay, etc.) and play them, using the (hopefully powerful) hardware the provider makes available to me. In case a provider goes out of business, I can simply take my games elsewhere or go back to my own PC, but I won't be dependent on any given provider.
This rules out Stadia right out of the gate, since games have to be purchased on Stadia and can only be played on Stadia.

The candidates that are available to me right now and that I'll be testing are:
- Shadow
- Maximum Settings
- GeForce Now

GeForce Now now working through Chrome (on Linux, too!)

GeForce Now is now available on Chromebooks and people quickly found a way to make it work through the Chrome browser, which means it now also works on Linux!
Details here.
And here's a hint that's supposed to help with mouse latency

Update: The Chrome extension is no longer needed, just go to and it just works.
