Bragging Rights

This December 2016, I had a first one: A performance where my old,
secondhand Thinkpad did the whole of a show running QLC+ for lights,
ShowQ for sound & sound effects, and mpv for video - yep, that's a
Triple, Full FOSS achievement.

I am used to do shows from my Arch or Ubuntu laptop, but usually with
dlight which isn't open-source; for that particular show, involving
1080p video, precise timing of sound effects, and about 40 light cues
over 58mn of performance, I had one luxury: time. A full 15 days of
paid-for, 9-5 day-job, pure technical and rehearsal time. Well, if you
wanna work with QLC+, you better have time.
