Restrained Life Viewer for Linux

Current (1.15.2_LL-1.21.6) binary distribution of Restrained Life Viewer for Linux is broken. The binary is compiled with an extra flag which is not in the settings file, which makes the client crash when trying to wear a blindfold.

Luckily this is easily fixed. The patch below makes you able to enjoy being blindfolded also in Linux.

The sound of silence

From "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle:

Every sound is born out of silence, dies back into silence, and during its life span is surrounded by silence. Silence enables the sound to be. It is an intrinsic but unmanifested part of every sound, every musical note, every song, every word.

It somehow made me think of John Cage:
