There are some replies to that that provide a nice counter-example. Sometimes stuff is just finished. Nobody's going back to Super Mario Bros. and demanding it be updated.

Software doesn't get old and grungy because it gets used. It only really needs that sort of care if the environment around it keeps changing.

I mean, that honestly depends on the kind of software you're talking about, too. Super Mario Bros. is a game; essentially, playable art. While there may be updates to such a thing to better get across what the developer(s)/artist(s) behind it all intended to make it in the first place, or if it was the point of it to update over time from the get go, generally, games do not need updates in and of themselves except to ensure people can continue playing them - which is a purely environmental thing.

Then of course you have software that you use for particular things like Photoshop or your operating system of choice, which is subject to changing needs and expectations just by virtue of what it's made for. The software itself still doesn't change per se, but it does get less and less useful as time goes by.

Yeah, I'm aware of all this, although I'm guessing most software in businesses does fall into this category of never being done. I know at my work its always being changed because there are new products, changes to laws, changes to policies, changes to banking systems, management gets ideas, someone discovers a new and exciting way to break it, etc. Just… perpetual change.

Also I hate the dishes. So much.

Anyone know how to fix an original DS hinge if the part that broke off was quickly found in one piece? Asking for a friend.

It's 5 am my time. I am up this late because I'm an idiot who leaves things for the last minute.

I've never made a post at this hour before, in all my eight years on Jul. This is now being broken! ;D

The last few posting sprees I remember (the 2014 era onward) were in August of 2015 and April of 2016. In the entirety of August I had made 46 posts, averaging at about 1.48 per day (compared to my normal 0.27). That is something that I don't think I'll ever reach again.

The reason I'm mentioning this is because two people, Halian and Xkeeper, got Reinfors Syndrome today (yesterday?). That means 75+ posts on a single day. Holy macaroni.

Also Xkeeper is constantly closer and closer to surpassing Anya as the person with the highest amount of posts.

I wish that I could find forums/etc when they're actually in their golden age.

Jul of course, and then the first proper micronation I joined, I had just missed the end of a period of good times by, like, a month.

I suppose Glitch City Labs counts? but I was only 13 in 2007 so I was a complete and utter ass for like six years, not to mention the multiple lengthy downtimes.

Also, what happened to Anya?

When I received the new laptop, I assumed the ethernet cable would have been of higher quality.

Instead, it's even worse as the little piece of plastic needed to hold the cable in place broke on both sides. And even when it didn't break it was too easy to accidentaly move the cable and make the connection go down.

In practice, I'm seeing my best friends 'Schezo[C2]_' and 'Ping timeout' fairly often. Thanks!

There wasn't a public falling out or anything, so unless stuff happened in private, she just kinda... left?
She's still around the internet, I follow her on Twitter/Tumblr/etc.
