...though you could (probably quite successfully) make the argument that the passive-aggressiveness is now even worse with Twitter and the like.

I always liked the idea that it was less a "Peach-ifying" tool and more just a generic Princess-type one

And yeah, that part I forgot about. I never really used mine for that, just the usual "I'm not here / busy / now playing" junk.

the only downside to status messages was all the passive aggressiveness and drama that my furry friends would tend to put in them, oof

also, why is it called bowsette when it's 0% toadette
shouldn't it be like, peacher if we're trying to use the same convention

that was my favorite thing. when i'd get a message from a random AIM name and it's just some random content i don't know anything about and i'm like "uhh who?" and they're like "oh this is x from so-and-so" and i'm just like "oh! neat"

i don't even really lurk in discords anymore except a couple i just don't talk to anyone really

dearly. remember back when you could have status messages and say like "i'm here but feeling like shit" or "out at lunch i'll be back later" or "now listening to Track01.mp3"

and you'd be able to see who was around, see people pop online and go "now might be a good time to say hi" or even just wait, or whatever

(or of course turn that all off and just be online forever, or be invisible, and so on)

it was a one-to-one time. even smaller group chats were similar ... now that everyone's Always Onlineā„¢ it's hard to feel comfortable messaging someone, since there's not even controls on how to handle that. i remember Trillian letting you decide to, say, play a special tone for new message windows versus a different beep for existing windows.

that kind of conversation also allowed you to get deep into thoughts and have a meaningful discussion about what was on your mind, even if it was just like. "cherry pie is good". what about it? favorite type of crust? last made one five years ago but want to do it now?

instead it's just ... throwing everything out into the void. you don't talk to people, you talk at them.

you guys ever get that feeling to archive stuff? ever since ROM files started to get scarce, my need to archive stuff for future use is rising faster than ever. it would be a shame to lose stuff i put so much time into years ago. i really dislike using cloud services since they usually have the mindset of ui design over functionality and i really like having physical storage rather than the usual digital solutions.

now that has a setback cause everything is produced so cheaply now, they're bound to corrupt in 2 minutes.

Time to get a NAS and set it up with a RAID array! It'll "only" cost you a thousand bucks or so if you want one of good quality.

I've never been that good at archiving or backing up things, which is a bit surprising given my history.


Bowsette has taken over the internet!

Hooooo lordy.

I kinda forgot how to just message people and say "sup" and kind of idly shoot the shit over a couple of hours while doing other stuff, like back in the early 2000s with AIM. I'm always afraid I'm bugging someone or I'm going to say something really stupid. cuz I'm pretty sure I used to bug a lot of people lol. now I just lurk in discords

does anyone else miss when random people would just message you on messenger programs and you'd just, talk about stuff

i miss like... having conversations with people. i miss learning about people and sharing experiences with people. i miss making friends

nobody has anything to say anymore because they've already externalized their every thought onto The Timeline for big companies to datamine

I spent most of last night awake, having trouble falling asleep and I was thinking about how and why I have this problem anyway.

It's not a new thing and I've practically gotten used to occasionally going without sleep for a day or two but it is a pretty big problem considering I feel tired quite often and I end up having to find ways to keep myself awake.

Same. I want to set up a Windows 2000 VM again.

I started really craving Windows XP-era aesthetic stuff out of nowhere. Like, programs that don't fit the aesthetics of the rest of the OS and have weird soft rounded custom buttons, mIRC scripts with weird text displays, Luna, posting on InvisionFree forums, Winamp skins...

So I set up a VM. I didn't end up following that aesthetic quite specifically, though, but it's still very 2000s (and obnoxiously pink). I tried to make the playlist as "random assortment of songs downloaded off of KaZaA/Limewire and Gendou in 2007" as possible. I think I succeeded?

I have no idea how long it's been that but it's been a while. I should update it again at some point.
