Google and Youtube's algorithms more than ever pushing forward worthless stupid crap videos made of trash Tv and trash people, conspiracy and religious nuttery fantasy documentaries, braindead irritating influencers and proselytes, fakes n' shit n' shit. Even games videos are a mess.
It's come to the point where finding anything that's not cultivating stupidity, finding something relevant and valuable on many topics has become a real challenge or even impossible.
I'm guessing when 95 people click on 'alien nazi jews controlling the weather in ancient communist sumeria', and only 5 on real non-retarded contents, the latter then somehow disappear from the algo-radars and servers after a while.
The internet has really hit bottom.

PC updates that take 5 freakin' hours.

EDIT: And reset a bunch of your preferences while they're at it. :x

I liked, for the short period of time I used W10, when updates would also break drivers and programs so I'd have to redownload and reinstall shit

Apparently they're attempting to quiet things down by limiting features release to once a year, with of bigger pack of correctives etc mid-year.

So, of course, they still can't admit that the concept of W10 and their attempts at imitating the mobiles and games world was a shit idea to begin.

Unfortunately, when the world at large accepts it - even treats it as a good OS - they have no incentive to "admit" anything.

After just ONE horrific experience with it on 7, the concept of forced updates became an absolute dealbreaker for me. I have zero understanding why the masses put their feet down on certain things but not others - this ought to have been a clear case, but no. And so we're stuck with a version of the OS I simply cannot adopt.

I didn't mean all Windows, specifically 10. Among all 7 was their best, never had nearly the same amount of trouble with it as with the current horror that's been bashed magnitudes more for good reasons (10's hated possibly even more than Vista and 8 I would say)
People didn't really adopt 10, well some did in the beginning as it was free and they were curious, but for the huge majority they were more or less forced into it because they didn't know how to prevent the 'upgrade', or they just bought a new PC with it, and most of them not happy would like to go back to 7 or 8.1

Warning though if you're a Linuxian let me laugh out loud because I know what's coming and whatever you say I've already heard it all I will keep laughing. Desktop Linux is only good for the 2% of users who are tech engineers and developers raised with a computer since they were 10, and it's bloody tiring to hear their BS arguments faking ignorance that as a desktop OS it doesn't fit the needs and skills of 98% of users in the damn world, for the reason it's made with nerd logic instead of people logic, and no distro makes up for that. Linux is the epitome of FOSS hypocrisy and I possibly hate that more than tentacular monopolistic evil corporations products.

Had some work open in Windows 10 on my laptop, was starting to run low on battery and had to go out, so just pressed the power button for hibernation. Came back and pressed the power button - LOL, Windows decided it had wanted to do a proper power off instead or some shit. My work wasn't lost, because I had saved it, but why can you no longer trust a Windows computer to hibernate? The fans went quiet, so it must've powered back on after I left. Sneaky fucking Microsoft.

Given how many people still have the unresolved issue of their laptops not being able to wake back up after Sleep / Hibernation, I'm surprised they even still have the feature :lol:

All these green incentives to save the world when 60000 additional people are born every single day (including those who died).

I really don't see the point in our actions if we do not drop the population.

The other day I saw a train in India stuck in a flood. According to the BBC news 9 pregnant women were on the train. 9 :shock:

What kind of life are those 9 people going to have?

IIRC U.N estimates are that we should peak at 10~12 billion around the end of the century, but they don't tell what they think comes next, though it's easy to guess.
Global population will probably decrease as quickly as it increased (likely bc of mass shortages of vital necessities like food/water, medicine etc) it's impossible to predict down to how many, back to 1bn like before the end-19thC/20th explosion? who knows. Anyway the Earth ecosystem self-regulates and it doesn't wait for our consent, it does the necessary even if the price is a minimal biosphere with poor life diversity for an entire geological period.

Or not, because all this time we were actually livestock for an alien species company that'll collect us to fulfill an order. :twisted:
(just imagine if we end up low grade burger meat, that would be humiliating)

Who the bloody hell thinks that MM/DD/YYYY is a good date format? Why would the month be more important that the day to you? It just makes zero sense overall.

Going in "size order" from day to month to year makes more "mathematical" sense, but I always figured the other way caught on because it most closely matches how we tend to say dates out loud, i.e. most folks say "August sixth", not "the sixth of August", though that's just a guess.

Probably, and my native language always saying day first is probably a factor too, but I'm perfectly okay with it when month is written in letters (three-letter shorthands like AUG are convenient in this case). But when you use only numbers AND include the year... sorry, there's just no excuse for breaking the ascending (or descending) order.

Then again, stuff like this mostly comes from the cultures that still can't let go of non-decimal weight and length units so...

Yeah, definitely much quieter in just the past couple of years. I used to refresh this bad boy at work daily and have tons of updates. Now I don't visit on the weekends and only see a few thread updates of interest come Monday.

I really love forum layouts; I can't stand reddit's hot mess, but I'm also a troglodyte and don't try to learn.

Shmups that don't move you slower when you move diagonally along the edge of the screen. I never realized how much I appreciated this for allowing you to fine tune your left/right dodging speed in a vertical shmup by moving diagonal down to move slower than left/right against an attack you were dodging at the bottom of the screen until I was playing one that didn't have this as a thing and realized I missed it.

I can't think of what game I was playing that didn't have this though now. It's done in pretty much every CAVE, Raizing, Takumi, and Psikyo game from what I remember, but for the life of me I can't remember what game I was playing that annoyed me by not having this.

Some happy news - I was heartbroken to see Bladesaw Babe's forum was gone. :sad: Then I realised it'd only moved! Image

Put me in the camp who likes old-ass forum layouts. I much preffer that, plus there's a bunch of swell people in here

Reddit's structure is weird, but even more of a problem is that it's a site frequented by just about everyone, when it all comes down to it. Which means douches and basic-bitches galore(Reddit frontpage is disguzting). And even though you're deep down in that niche subreddit : the vibe of a mainstream/basic people-frequented site, still seeps through. You never feel completely invested in it, because it's not specialized in your thing, and dabbles in pretty much everything

Here though I truly feel comfortable being the Troglodyte that I am! (man, isn't my cave dope? Sure, it's a little dank in here, but it's still cozy af!)

I only used Reddit when I had a job because of its tame content. But even there the subreddits I had subscribed to weren't very active. No need to say the concept of the site is awful. No sense of community whatsoever.
