i think part of the problem for me is that i never initiated conversation. i always felt like i'd just be bothering someone. i never had a phase in my life where i felt really comfy just messaging other people with w/e, but lots of other people did to me

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 Online™ 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.

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

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.

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

It's weird how intensely popular the fad is. As much as I like seeing neat character designs based on the Mario series, I will certainly be glad when people stop petitioning to make it canon. Then again, it seems like Nintendo already considered the same idea when making Super Mario Odyssey.

I'm quite glad to see it, but I'm also extremely tired of seeing Bowser in exclusively "fun sporting outtakes" or "bad guy who kidnaps Peach". I mean, it's a funny idea, too; why capture a princess when you can just be one?

Shame you never released that Kuriblog 1.3 source tho :/

I found 1.1 and mirrored it to github, it's feasbale for what I want to use but tbh i can't find a "good" blog software at all, kuriblog 1.1 complains when errors are on about a lot of things (but does work fine regardless on mysql 5.7/mariadb 10.1 and php7.3)

Wordpress is horrible to use, the only one i found that was ok was chyrp lite and that one uses markdown instead of allowing normal html formatting :/

Should I feel bad posting multiple posts all over the board, as it spams IRC and discord and I only see my name under new posts?

No.

Activity is good, I think

Not like we all live in the same time zone, so we'll have something to read when we get on at our various times.
