been playing that new armored core game
it's really fun!


If it takes a strong man to deny what's in front of him, I want to become the strongest man there is.


Too late, I've already rejected reality. You can't get any stronger than that.


You absolute workaholic. Sounds like you worked up a nice path for your life, now. I wish the best for you, sushi. Come back every once in a while to tell us about your life in the future. :)

I got a job working with dogs, so I am finally no longer unemployed
I've been working for a couple weeks now and most everyone there likes me (human and dog)
It's a good feeling :>


Post some of the dogs!!!


What's the joke with neapolitan ice cream? All my life I never knew what that is and after searching on the internet it's just the same old 3 flavours in three boring lines.
Why? Why is this such a thing in media? You can just order an ice cream with the three flavours, I just don't get it.

It's one of those funny historical misunderstandings. The word "neapolitan" is actually an American misspelling of "Napoleon". During the French Revolution, Napoleon's supporters popularized the "Napoleon Ice Cream", which was in bands of red, white, and black to match the revolutionary army's flag. After Napoleon's defeat and subsequent imprisonment at Alcatraz, many of his supporters moved to California, where they would hold rallies demanding Napoleon's freedom. They would often serve their "Napoleon ice cream" at these rallies. This ice cream was popular at the time because there were only 3 ice cream flavors that had been invented and it included all of them. It soon began to spread across the country, but at some point the name got misheard too many times and by the time it reached New York, everyone was calling it "Neapolitan Ice Cream" instead and that's the name that ended up sticking.

It's a good job, I pretty much just have to keep everyone happy and getting along. (and clean up after everyone of course)

Filling up the pool on a hot day or getting fetch going with a group is actually fun, which is something I didn't expect to say about work.

Now that is interesting, sorry for sounding a bit rude in that post, I was just mesmerized why Neapolitan Ice Cream was mentioned so much in movies.
It's insanely clear that ice cream truffles and sandwiches are the superior cold desert. They can come in plenty of different sizes with all sorts of filler, and they're also covered in chocolate. Napoleon ice cream just seems very uninteresting to me.
Just talking about this is making me crave a little bit of that, thankfully they're expensive and I got no dime in me pocket :P.


>Now that is interesting
And also an obvious joke - Napoleon died in 1821, California was founded in 1850, and Alcatraz prison was opened in 1934. There were also more than 3 flavors of ice cream that existed during Napoleon's lifetime.
Also, if Neapolitan ice cream is talked about a lot in movies, I've somehow never noticed. Off the top of my head, I can't think of a single movie where it's brought up at all.


There's a short segment about it in Shrek, and also a Simpsons joke with only the chocolate stripe being eaten.
It's just 2 but I am fairly sure I've seen it mentioned before somewhere else

Every time, I try to be only a useful member of the part time staff. Every time, I'm given more responsibilities and more hours while the rest of the staff gets culled and working conditions deteriorate until others bail out. I've began to wonder if I'm a contributive factor in the degradation of working environments. This pattern has happened too often for that to not be a possibility. My objective is always to do as much work in as little time possible so that everyone (not just me - everyone) has more time and space to breathe and therefore be less stressed. Maybe the solution really is to prolong your assigned tasks for as long as possible, be the least cooperative you can be and, most importantly, smile less.

Another three months lost. And all factors outside the gladdening tone in management's voices indicate a fourth month is in store for me. Maybe even the rest of the year.

It might be time to quit. Again.


Sounds like you're working at places that don't pay competitive wages. I work at a place that hasn't kept up with inflation over the past few years and the turnover is becoming massive. Anyone with talent and motivation moves on to somewhere with better pay after a year or two.

I think we're starting to really feel the effects of the contracting workforce. Most people aren't going to do good work for minimum or near-minimum wage in the current market.

EXCUSE YOU, very happy about your site or whatever but calling your bosses exploitative bastards, storming off and then writing an e-mail pointing to a faulty clause in the contract to justify immediate termination is MY copyright, thank you VERY MUCH.


If you're so good at working that you put your coworkers out of business, you should probably start your own company.

I'm still in a bit of disbelief that I made Linux my daily driver. I used to get mad at it because things "never worked" on it, but a lot has changed with time and now it's a really easy to understand system compared to what I dealt with before.
I had headaches trying to run things on it 5 years ago, but now everything just seems to come naturally. Then again, having dealt with the right kind of people helped me become really good at it. Or at the very least, good enough to understand what to touch and what not.


Honestly considering switching to it as my daily driver in a few years. I've pretty familiar with it via Mint on my laptop, but as my daily PC driver I've yet to make the switch. I've slowly but surely moving to FOSS for most of my software choices though so the transition won't be as difficult.
I'll mostly just be switching once Windows 10 in end of life and they cut off security updates. I don't see any reason to upgrade to Windows 11, the main turn off for me is the bloat.

On that note though, I've wondered if anyone else misses when software and applications used to be optimized to hell and back (little no flashy animations, ran on an inkling of memory, didn't take up 200MB for a chat application, etc.) out of necessity.
I used to have a shitty old 2006 laptop as my daily driver in high school and I'd squeeze as much performance out of that thing as possible wherever I could. Now it seems like everything runs on the idea that "everyone who matters has good hardware, who cares about optimization, just push it". It's honestly a massive annoyance to me. Seeing something like Spotify take a full 15 seconds to open the front page vs. Foobar2000 taking less than a second to show my entire library is annoying to me.

I went to the doctor because I thought I was dying of ass cancer. Turns out it's probably just hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are pretty cool! Partially because in their healthy non-inflamed state they help you push things out of your butt without any unfortunate ripping and tearing. But mostly because they're not ass cancer!

I've been using it as a daily driver for several years now and have had no significant problems even though I still don't fully understand it, for lack of trying mostly. I think Linux just werks as much as Windows, but it's just that the ways it breaks are often different and sometimes it can be a bit more frustrating (but also more fun, and potentially more hacky) to fix it if you're not on one of the very popular distros or the commercial ones with paid support.


>Hemorrhoids are pretty cool!
I'm glad to hear you don't have cancer, but I cannot say I ever expected to read that sentence.

i've had an ass rash for the past 6 months. saw a couple doctors, tried creams, suppositories, etc.
only started improving recently when I began airing out my asshole for 20 minutes a day.
seeing a dermatologist to hopefully knock it out fully.


Heh, I have something similar. My buttocks get really annoying from time to time, and I noticed that what helped me the most is to start using wet towels (is that how you spell it?) to wipe.
It has helped me a lot, I have gone to a doctor previously, but the medical system here sucks so much I'd rather just treat myself instead.
Yeah, funnily enough just after saying that I was using it as a daily driver I suffered the "Death by a thousand papercuts" syndrome. After having my PC crash, and my devices not being recognized after boot unless I reconnected them, I went back to Windows because life was getting tough.
I have also been pondering of switching to Fedora, because I heard it was the most stable distro out there next to debian, Ubuntu has always given me issues for some reason.
The downside is that that means reinstalling everything again :(


Why did I take a cup of coffee instead of just tea. I can't sleep now…


has anyone ever been outcasted by outcasts?
i feel really fucking alone. i befriended someone off the internet who was a robot and i ended up being subject to data theft. i truly believe that there is something wrong with me because, why else would this happen to me? i thought people on imageboards would get what its like having people be randomly cruel to you, and hating it because, theres no rhyme or reason. i feel alone like i dont belong anywhere and i dont know what to do.

>i thought people on imageboards would get what its like having people be randomly cruel to you, and hating it because, theres no rhyme or reason.

Probably true, but empathy isn't the reaction for everyone, a lot of people are glad to turn around and do the exact same things that have been done to them to others. Even more so online where there's little if any repercussions.


I want to message my ex on the only thing I can so badly


where do i go then? maybe i am just a bad person and something about me causes others to do things like this around me. maybe i did something bad to warrant this. it feels like i really do have nowhere because i have some mental illness but i dont want to be around people who resort to doing illegal things. what is wrong with me. i just want somewhere to feel understood and try to understand things without being placed in situations where people do that kind of stuff. when did mental illness and being lonely mean actually trying to ruin peoples lives


People can be bad and selfish, no need to blame yourself. You're probably too good-natured to deal with strangers. But you need to be more wary of internet strangers.
Also the fact that they would have been subject to mistreatment doesn't mean they would behave any differently. Look at how imageboards are plagued by bullies and meanies, even though the majority of the userbase were bullied.
Please be careful and exercise some basic precautions! Internet people are generally awful, just look around (not here, here it's nice, but just about anywhere else, you will hardly find a shred of empathy.I was going to say humanness but human nature is exactly the problem.)

Been quite hopeful about Unity self destroying themselves by breaking the trust in their userbase. This will lead to more devs flocking to Godot and implementing more features.

This is maybe not the best place to ask this, but has sushi ever had a hip flexor strain? My appointment with a physical therapist is in a month, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for stretches/home remedies I can do while I wait.

Today it finally felt like autumn for me. I got some yardwork done, opened up all the windows, neatened up my room, and then played video games. Quality weekend.


Never to the point of therapy. Mine were sore for about a week one time after doing some new exercises.


I can't give a ton of advice, but I think anything within your comfort that will get the area moving thereby stimulating bloodflow is going to be a big help. Maybe try bridges?

my energizer 1 hour battery charger I've had for over 4 years that SMOKES stopped working for no reason. I called up customer service and talked to a girl in India about the warranty and they sent me a list of things I'd need to send in(pics, describing the problem etc.) but before I tried it randomly again and it worked. that's happened before and it befuddles me. how can an electronic device with no power just fix it's own problem when left alone for a while? are there like little tech-elves coming in the night to tinker on my stuff? also need to return the cheap charger I bought in the meantime which is trash, takes literally all day compared to the 1 hour which does live up the name.


Are you a car owner, sushi roll? My Audi's various components used to break down on their own, but never permanently.

Regarding your problem - the famous wear and fear also applies to electronic components. In this case probably the heat is the culprit. I would not risk having a faulty device connected to a power outlet.


I almost always keep my windows open. Even in the winter when it's very cold outside I leave just a teeny crack on my bedroom window. Not having heat or AC is the main reason but I don't mind the fresh air.
I also felt like fall, made some apple cinnamon tea and it just made me smile. Fall is the best time of the year.


>how can an electronic device with no power just fix it's own problem when left alone for a while
They have firmware. Because it's cheaper to write a program for a small microprocessor to do trivial things than it is to build the same logic from various physical devices.
So there's a tiny program in the device that does something as trivial as counting seconds, or turning on the power when a switch is on, or stops the charging circuit from charging batteries once the battery appears full. And like every other computer, the thing has a processor, storage for storing programs, and working memory so that programs can maintain state, so that they can remember how many seconds have passed or whether the device is on or not. The working memory requires constant power to hold data.
And then something silly happens, like the program can't actually count more than six years worth of seconds, or the program doesn't reuse memory and runs out after a while, or you turn the thing on and off too fast so the program behaves like it's both on and off at the same time. Maybe a cosmic ray hits the memory and flips a bit. The program is now in inconsistent state and stops working correctly. The issue persists for as long as the memory is powered on.
In short, manufacturers are too cheap not to replace hardware with software, and all software is universally garbage. If rebooting it fixes the issue, it's a software issue.


Thanks sushis. I'll try bridges, maybe some light yoga too.

Without having the model in hand and opening it to look inside, it's really hard to guess why that happens.
One potential explanation is that the circuit has run for long enough that it's started to wear down a crucial capacitor, or there might be some leak to ground that sometimes short-circuits and sometimes doesn't depending on how hot the circuits are (because typical conductors expand when heated), or a resistor got messed up somewhere and that's leading to some leaky charge. There's like a million different things that can go wrong on the hardware side, never mind integration hell when the software side has to deal with the hardware.

Sorry for the rant but I'm sick of people who don't understand computer tech being mean to programmers >:^(

Software is awesome. It's flexible, lets you define all sorts of functionality without needing a specialized circuit for it. That's what makes von-neumann machines so awesome too! It's a universal computer circuit that can calculate anything as long as there's a program (software) for it!

Hardware isn't always reliable. There are still tractors from the 50's (all mechanical) running today, but most are out of commission because they failed eventually. Sometimes a car starts immediately, sometimes you have to keep the ignition going for a solid 10 seconds before it starts. It's not because "gas producers" are lazy that that happens, it's often because there's some quirk with the engine, it's too cold, etc.

See this picture. Notice the distinct lack of any microcontrollers, EEPROMs, and other components? This circuit likely won't have any software in it at all, because contrary to what most people assume, it sometimes is much cheaper to implement a circuit that develop and maintain a codebase, and programmers are not to blame for all the technical travesties you face (like power station failures, nuclear meltdowns, website 404ing, dropped packets, etc). Ask any engineer (civil, electrical, mechanical) and they'll tell you just how unreliable the majority of technology is. Please stop giving programmers the shaft, they work very fucking hard to get anything working and you wouldn't be posting here if they didn't.

Thank you <3

Out of nowhere, I had a thought to look up the very first online forum I ever joined, all the way back in 2005. To my surprise it's not only still online, but active! I got to talk to online friends I hadn't messaged since 2008 and they actually remembered me.

In the age of nonstop monopolization and enshittification of the internet, I have a little more hope there will still be places that embody its original spirit.


My friend has gotten super into frisbee golf, so I've been playing with him. It's very fun!
Today I went to a really pretty course and got my own discs at last. Had a great time and made some nice shots even though I'm still quite poor at the game overall.


Found a few more very interesting books today. Right up my alley, but also quite removed from my current focus.
I also told my mother I've been reading about the Soviet Union. I should resume that reading.
