As we all know, Flash Player will be removed from all browsers by next year. This means that parts of the Arcade Monitor Modeline Howto, one of the most accessible introductions to arcade monitor tech I've ever seen, will no longer be viewable.

What would be the best way to ensure that this resource remains accessible in its entirety?

Speedrun streamers.

I want to watch an impressive WR of something? they're either an unbelievably arrogant pseudo-celebrity with a weird cult following...
.. or someone who just sits there whining about RNG. Constant complaints, doesn't sound like they enjoy the game at all.

- Webshops running Black Friday offers

- Offers end on Thursday

- All the prices are just their regular "on sale" prices that are true for 95-100% of the time.

When software vendors replace local applications with cloud applications and force software as a service where it doesn't belong.

This particular vendor that's biting my ass this week used flash until last week!
Now, they are rolling a beta rushed HTML5 replacement to paying customers. Fuckers! How could they have possibly waited this long?

Records that don't come with properly cut centre hole and need widening before they'll sit on the spindle correctly.
Only happens once in a blue moon, but I've had three in the last few months and it's infuriating.

Inconsistent sprite mirroring. I get that for a top-down RPGs and action games it was common to mirror the left/right walking sprites instead of redrawing them. The original Legend of Zelda did this. However, the NES version of Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar uses super inconsistent mirroring in its sprites.

Specifically, sprites where the character is holding a rod or staff in their hand are lazily drawn, and the hand they're holding it changes when they move up and down! Druids, Mages, and Shepherds all hold something in their right hand when looking downwards, but the hand they hold it in shifts to their left when moving upwards, as if they couldn't be bothered to mirror the upward facing sprite. It looks really awkward at times. Also, none of them show they're holding anything in their left right movement, and there's exactly one NPC sprite that does correctly mirror what they're holding in the Up vs Down sprite, the fighter holding the spear and shield, who always holds the spear in their right hand and the shield in their left (aside from when moving left or right).

Games that leave things out of their options menu until after a new mechanic is introduced to avoid "spoilers."

Motherfuckers, I know there's a Batmobile in this game, it's been like 90% of the advertising campaign. Let me switch "battle mode" to a toggle!

Assholes, I know that I'm going to be playing Dante in this Devil May Cry game.

etc.

People referring to arcade games as "MAME games".

Not only is MAME clear about not supporting homebrew, it's also featured console and home computer emulation since the MESS merger in 2015.

Also, mame is the product name of an emulator, it's not a platform. :P

I've set my home office in my bedroom, which is where my record player is, so I've been listening to more vinyl in the past few weeks. Which has reignited an old rage fire - records that don't clearly mark side A/side B.

While you have a 50% chance of pulling it out to side A, someone has done a shit job if you have to flip it several times to work out what's what. Types of record labelling, in order from sensible to fucking stupid:

* Each side is clearly marked A/B on the label
* Record only has "this side/that side" track listing on one label to indicate sides, side with the track listing is side A
* Record only has "this side/that side" track listing on one label to indicate sides, side with the track listing is side B
* Record's labels do not indicate which is side A/B, but the matrix runout does
* Not even the matrix runout clearly identies side A/B, we hope you're familiar with the first track

I like that there's a convention where you have some artwork on one label and a tracklisting on the other, but no-one can agree which is meant to be which. If you start with the artwork side you still have to flip it to see from the tracklisting which side is which - and flip it back again if the artwork was side A after all! Why is it so difficult to clearly mark the two sides?!

Super Little, SUPER ANNOY: "Print" being directly underneath "Search Google For" in Chrome's text highlight menu.

Yeah computer doodz, I want to bring my offline printer to whirring, clattering life to print out a single word I'm trying to get the definition of, and you just know I'm gonna blow an entire sheet of paper printing said word. It is just how human being roll! Image

Yeah I know, git gud, l2browse, look you fannies I'm here to look up words and get drunk and beat off, maybe you should chill out too and you'd get more clears when the gayme is afoot. Look up that burn you Google chodemonglers Image

As far as I know, Firefox and derivatives are the only browsers that lets you customize menus and remove stuff like that. Although at the rate things are going, that might change at some point, too.

That's very annoying. I seem to remember that happening before, but I can't think of any actual full-length LPs that don't have an A and B engraved in the runout (that don't have in on the label)

12" singles on the other hand it is rampant. There's a ton of them with blank white labels on both sides.

I guess you could always put a small post-it-note on the label with an A or B on it?

Birro I'm definitely speechless when I see native-english speakers who write ''defiantly'' when they mean ''definitely''. It's really common too on the ol' Youtube.

''of coarse'' is another one I see regularly too :lol:

I remember playing Diablo 1 and being irritated by the people who didn't know how to spell "Rogue" properly. :lol:

Oh jeez. My mom was an English teacher, so I am pre-programmed to have seizure twitches when I see spelling errors.

I think I deliberately use bad grammar online as a kind of catharsis against it. Don't think I can do a "could of" thoough. Seeing that in print makes me physically nauseous.

Oof, Rogue/Rouge does clang. I find most misspellings cute tbh, especially when they involve loanwords. An ancient writing on the matter:

Spoiler: show

"Could of" is like a bicycle going into a woodchipper though. REEE!

I was calling Dragon Warrior's blue arachnids "Roggu Scorpions" for a bit BITD. :mrgreen: I was saying "Wiverin" rather than "WYE-VERN" until like two years ago. :shock: Marble-mouthed Dave Mustaine of all people put me straight. :o

I find stuff like that kinda endearing tbh. :3 Can't think of any misspellings/malapropisms that make me REE. Probably due to Engrish being such a beloved artefact of my hobbies. It'd be like getting mad at BATWIDER or DONGON FEVERON's emcees, or not cracking up when an enraged Tony Soprano screams that he's "FUCKIN PROSTATE WITH GRIEF HEAH" :lol:

Abuse of "literally" can suck a dick, but that's along the same lines as "could of," less an endearing bumble than graceless mangling.

There was this fairly infamous alleged scammer active here several years back, who went by the username "poolchamp." I've no detailed knowledge or opinion of his supposed antics, but I and everyone else could not get enough of his hapless calling card, "mt8." That was his way of abbreviating "mate." Gave him away every time he'd try to sneak back in, like fucking Tourette's or something. Look up his post history sometime, it's a LITERAL MINEFIELD OF SORROW, and one of the starkest condemnings of this forum not allowing three-letter search terms. :mrgreen: jonny and emphatic probably remember him.

Witness a man lose custody of his kids due to men_kissing.jpg :shock: :sad:
