That's not enough, I can still see the wallpaper.

Anyway, got myself another laptop. Pretty bare desktop for now, but I just like that new, default, clean feeling. I still have to try and run 98SE on it.

Discord really is easy to use, though — for a lot of communities you don't even need an account, you can just click, toss in a name, and you're there. It's a lot like the IRC of old in that way (though with IRC you still needed a client, usually ...)

On the other hand, it sure is great when the whole thing collapses and the only thing you can do is look at whatever "how do you do, fellow kids" meme they added for the loading screen

Now THAT is disrespectful, fucking hell. Honestly, people think Discord are the caring ones but no, they are just a bunch of memesters that exploit being cool as a means of getting away with everything :/

Also i hate how people won't move to xmpp/whatever because aaaaa it's too inconvenient but if xmpp was trendy it would be a diffrrent story

yup. and I'll never forgive them for refusing to help us transfer server ownership when my friend died. because the server had less than 100 people in it. ugh.

their model is extremely exploitative, and is pretty much eating everybody's privacy, the least (or perhaps in this case most) I can do is refuse to use their client

oh, neat!
i've seen a different re-creation of weatherscan somewhere online,
but it was a lot more involved in terms of setting it up and such,
so it's nice to see a one click and youre there version of it out there
thanks for the heads up!

Also, could never get the hang of using Ripcord. UI felt too clunky to me.

Honestly, the "normal" Discord client really just pisses me off because it takes up half a gigabyte of RAM for no good reason. That alone is enough to make me switch. I'm pretty used to clunky UIs, anyway
yeah, this is my beef with the official client as well...
there's really no reason for every program to be a glorified browser window
plus, my mac mini is agonizingly slow at launching programs because of its 5400rpm hard drive
so any optimization i can get is a good one, honestly

hey, that's the same wallpaper my laptop uses. (though I'm too lazy to boot it and it's pretty much just that but with an xfce panel on the left anyway)

here's my current desktop on my new workstation, only one monitor this time (click for full)

Are you guys sure you want to see that sort of cluttered mess? 🤔

No new macOS shot yet, although it's changed since — I'll probably add that when my brain decides to stop being an executive dysfunctioning little bitch

I like my blue foobar

Nice 404 error


K-meleon test builds running goanna3 are also cool. :3

Not sure what you mean ... As far as I'm aware, it's just an old build that they made for W98 before deprecating support for it entirely.

I saw K-Meleon in your screenshot and remembered that there are unofficial builds now running the Goanna 3.4.2 layout engine, which is what an older Pale Moon uses (there's also a W2K port using 3.2 IIRC).

A Pentium 3 is the perfect processor for a cozy installation of Windows 2000 Pro

Err, wait, wrong decade.

Wait, what? Since when is Windows 98 outdated? And for a decade even?



Do I really have to get one of those Pentium IIIs or Athlons and run Windows XP now...?

Oops. I fixed it.

I hardly got any sleep the night before I posted that, so you can probably blame sleep deprivation.

too intoxicated to comprehend the long sentence you wrote, About This Mac pls


haven't gotten around to it yet
trying to figure out if the dGPU fix is in software or if it'd persist (could I keep High Sierra around for shit that needs the 6750 and run Mojave purely on the 3000 or would it apply to every OS)
