what should i do if feeling burnt out about getting back into software development? what should i play for free without speakers or earphones and on touchpad, on NixOS Linux? having about 10GB disk space available for use.

also i don't want to relax, i want to do something. only idea that somewhat worked was installing TORCS racing simulator but the moment i have too much speed for a turn or make a tiny error i am losing entire race... and this, single turn where missing track means penalty

@phoe i will try playing wesnoth, but i am afraid i am looking for either a game that would require less thinking, or something to work on or learn from.

@mkf Yes, that. No matter from which channel. You may learn to land Cessna.

@amiloradovsky i am not an enthusiast of being a plane much tho, so if i will enjoy something in it, it will be the effort of the very thing. i won't enjoy it if the effort to learn stuff firstly will be significant, though

@mkf Then enable autostart and disable the damage to the plane due to hard maneuvers. And just fly.
Later maybe try to land it, when/if you'll feel up to the challenge.

@amiloradovsky @phoe maybe my fault that i use `unstable` channel so eagerly tho... just realised. almost forgot.

@mkf @phoe Only update the channel if you have at least ½ of the diskspace free, because the very first package you'll install or upgrade from there will bring with it a new version of all the packages you already have installed.

I used to have the incoherent installation a lot, and it drove me crazy how much space it takes.

Remove packages, update, upgrade, delete old generations, install packages — in that order, no steps skipped except maybe the installation and removal.
