godot is a great engine! at least for 2D, I heard 3D support is kind of dicey

good luck sushiroll. godot is good, but yes 3D is still not doing great. currently working on this yume nikki clone with outfits in place of effects.

the selfie camera is perfect opportunity for a jump scare, but only after you've used it a bunch and only shortly after looking in the mirror.

Do you use any programs on your computer on a daily basis? What are they? Do you use anything so much that you instinctively launch it right after turning your PC on? Are you always connected to the Internet?

Personally I use IRC, email and webchats a lot so I have a corner of my room dedicated to an old recycled PC that only runs my clients and a web browser.

Web browser- Firefox
General computing environment - Emacs (org mode, org roam, citar, elfeed etc)
Small text edits - Stock VIM
Games - Steam, Lutris and Heroic
Music - Strawberry
Chat - Discord, Emacs for IRC and XMPP, Element
Passwords - KeepassXC
Media - MPV
PDF - Sioyek

This is pretty much what I touch every day, my phone is pretty much blank except for Discord, since I only use it for calls and texts.


web browser - qutebrowser
rss reader - newsboat
text editor - vim
gemini and gopher browser - lagrange
file browser - lfimg


I use some really normal shit daily
waterfox - browser
uBlockOrigin, NoScript, Dark Reader, Cookie AutoDelete, Decentraleyes, SponsorBlock, Custom ScrollBar, Privacy Badger, Return Youtube Dislike - browser plugins that are always on
neovim - text editing and programming
godot - i'm making a game with my friends so :3
git - because of course i need version control!
nheko - matrix client for talking to my friends
ungoogled chromium - just open so i can use discord without the privacy nightmare of having the client on my computer, also for other web apps that may not work on waterfox
reaper - my personal choice of DAW, run it through a wine bottle sometimes in case there's some (possibly pirated) plugins I want to use
steam - i also run third party games through proton, it's That Good
alacritty (zsh) - personally choice of terminal emulator!
dolphin - it's the default for KDE and although I wanna get into tiling window managers, I'm lazy

besides that I just use everything else through my browser, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp are all websites afterall.


Call me overly curious but how do you manage to run Reaper over Wine? It never works out for me, the VSTs I import do load but never show their GUI properly.


> "Call me overly curious"
> proceeds to be normally curious
(don't worry about it)

I run it through Bottles! Which is a really shitty GNOME 3 desktop app that works really well (it runs on other DEs but get ready to deal with the GNOME 3 interfaces if you hate them). Bottles can be found here!: https://usebottles.com/download/

It may be a bit confusing, but what you want to do is create a REAPER Bottle then place the REAPER windows installer in your Downloads folder (it has to be Downloads). Run that .exe within the bottle, and REAPER will install itself to a virtual hard disk. Since I installed through flatpak, I access the virtual hard disk like ~/.var/app/com.usebottles.bottles/data/bottles/bottles/REAPER/drive_c. It has become necessary for me to create shortcuts to this directory because navigating that shit takes forever.

I only did this because I just want to use Neural DSP stuff in my DAW sometimes! Most Linux VSTs I import are totally fine.

An operating system that respects your freedom

If you are tired of having your OS use you and always wanted to use your computer instead
>What do you mean by freedom?
Write your own programs. use source code from the internet in seconds. update when you want to not when it tells you.
Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.
Want to adjust your hardware to your liking? Awesome!
Want to stop or make a new feature to a program you use every day? Go for it!

Its your computer! use it how you want!

If I can poke this, I've been using slackware for 10+ years. I've also used mint, arch, manjaro, haiku, and pop.

I highly recommend slackware because its as close to "feature complete" as I would call any OS. Once you get it set up (which let's not act like you won't learn a ton just doing that) its pretty much done and done. "It just werks" unironically.


i like linux but it makes me so mad that the software i want is not on linux.


I've come to realize the only true purpose for using linux is for programming and web hosting stuff. You will take this pill too.


I don't wanna >:(
u can't make me


>I've come to realize the only true purpose for using linux is for programming and web hosting stuff. You will take this pill too.

As opposed to what, in say, Windows or FreeBSD? I mean to say, what do people use on those platforms that you don't on linux? I don't want to argue, though. I recognize linux having so little market share that doing simple things like "gaming" would be frustrating for most. I guess I ask why it is "only" for those. Maybe I'm being pedantic.

I always feel melancholic about achievements in space exploration.
If I had sucked up to my profs more, I might have been able to get into their research labs for space tech. That could have been fun


I love it like everyone else, but I need more people. We need to get out of LEO again.

I know that feel. I work for NASA, but just having a bachelors (CS), I basically do industry, rather than research. Two sides of the same coin, I suppose. Grass is always greener as well.
Either way, follow your passion.

Don't know how old you are but I can almost guarantee it will happen, but as >>1774 said, small settlements will come before self-sustaining economies.


Fake photos…


Imagine being so gullible and retarded to think these are real lmfaoo


Why tho? What makes you think they are fake? If you say quality just remember that you probably have a 4k camera in your pocket right now.

Can we finally agree that Twitter's nee CEO and the "genius" behind the Las Vegas RGB "hyperloop" is just a conman? The dude can't even build tunnels at prices thst competitive with his competitots. I doubt he has invented a single new technology.

Everything he has takes credit ftom was pretty much just him buying the companies and patents of someone else came up with. (Like Tesla's faster chargers.)


In that video I linked there's a Musk fanboy who buys two ten cent cinder bricks Elon Musk had made for $400. Musk had claimed they were stronger than regular bricks and he would make a ton from waste soil dug up out of the ground. He never made any more than two and engineers say you can't make stronger bricks with any random soil. Just like how you can't make concrete with random dirt, it has to be the right gravel and sand and stuff mixed together.

He never ever hits his dates either but pushes them back and people just forget. Cybertruck is like 8 years late.

>He seems to have made the electric car industry get off its ass
No he didn't. He purchased a company that was already doing that.

Everything you've ever thought Elon did that was good is almost definitely something that he saw someone else doing that was good and then used his money to claim that accomplishment for himself.

He literally wrote a clause in his acquisition of paypal and tesla that he be named a founder of the company. He knows full well that people like you wont look into who ACTUALLY founded his companies and made the products they sell, so he claims that glory for himself.


This .
>Musk is a shill with money all he ever did is invest and aquire someone else's accomplishment.


Musk does SpaceX so that basically makes up for any failed business venture or innovation his other companies do.

Is there any CEO or capitalist frontman that isnt at least partially a conman?
It's not about having invented anything, it's about delivering product and manufacturing interest.
Advertising & delivery (of the things that actually matter).

My take on Elon though is, he's a bright dude and a fellow channer at heart, but he's in a fucking weird position of understanding where humanity/earth is going and not having enough influence to make the good thing happen, so he's kinda forced to embrace the absurdist run of being a human being.

But also that absurdist embrace has led to some nihilist downward spiral pathways of fuck-it-all, as in monkey abuse to further neuraLink endavours where macaques are in fucking hellworld left in experiment void puking to death in some weird pseudo-existence interacting with something that should never be. Not fucking okay. Nuclear eradication of earth is preferable to incarnating into one life of that existence. Make it fucking stop.


No, because there can't be. Can't really elaborate without getting political, but if you look into any CEO's past, they didn't get there by hard work, they got there by cheating.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a safe browser to use while exploring all these chans and neocities sites? So I can keep pretending I'm some kind of old internet researcher while not getting my address on 10 thousand different blacklists.

Any other app or tip would be appreciated too!

Honestly idc whether I'm on some fbi watchlist. I'm nothing to them, really, and they are nothing to me too.


i highly doubt that you are going to be on a list for browsing imageborads and neocities. most of the people there aren't doing anything illegal. the ones that are i hope they have good opsec and practice internet safety.


You can check here how well you can be tracked by any site.


It's almost impossible to stay sushi rollymous. The best you can do is use the most common client with the most common settings and environment to disappear in the crowd to some degree. Otherwise your best shot would be to fake a second online identity, ideally with a different machine you scavenged from a junk yard at least 30 miles away from your location with a separate gateway/vpn to access the web.

Crypto thread? Personally I think crypto is the future. No more centralization, no more states fucking you in the ass.
I also don't want to become a wage slave so I hope to make it thanks to crypto. Life is too short to not do what you like.
What cryptocurrencies have you invested in sushinons? What are you bullish on?
It would be cool that we all make it.

Personally I am extremely bullish on Bitbay. I missed the Ethereum train but I think Bitbay will be the next moon mission in 2018. It is the sole working decentralized marketplace and trustless contracting platform while fixing many BTC flaws and planning to have a decentralized peg that brings price stability by preventing volatility, especially from whales shady manipulation. The price is still fucking low (23m market cap) so there is a lot of growth potential. For instance, to have a x2 ROIs with ETH, it would need 30 fucking billions of dollars, while with bitbay it would only need 23m. It is far more likely in the latter for this very reason.
Pics related why I am bullish on it. It has both mainstream and darknet potential.

It has.


what purpose does crypto have that does not involve selling crypto?


obfuscation of monetary transactions, decentralized banking, circumvention of domestic regulations


Scamming pople off their real money
I kid, there's no such thing as real money.


I'll buy in!

I use a lot of obscure websites, mainly imageboards, and I play on a lot of small vidya servers. I need a vpn so I can stop letting random people know where I live. I'd like it to be relatively obscure, so it isn't included in vpn blacklists. Are there any good vpns that aren't too popular?

Mullvad seems trustworthy. I see them mentioned several times, and for well over a decade by privacy conscious people I think they're one of the more trustworthy providers. Way more trustworthy than PIA and their ilk (anyone else mentioned regularly through youtube sponsorships.).


I use mullvad vpn for a long time (1+ year i think) and I can honestly recommend it


I would also recommend Mullvad. Run by some of the OG PirateBay guys, low level of bullshit for a highly functional service. I would recommend you get a prepaid credit card from your local 7/11 (or equivalent) and try it out.


+1 for Mullvad.

Have been using it since late 2014, never had an issue with it.


TempleVPN and riseupVPN are pretty noname services. They were free last time I used them

I'm not so sure people want to make genuine friendships online anymore either. I'd say it feels harder than ever to make real connections with strangers online, though I'm not exactly sure why. But I do agree that the airline-bar sort of experience like you mentioned is gone too, which I really miss. So we're just in a strange void where we have… neither?

Most normal people only use the internet to talk to people they already know in real life, in private chats; or to yell into the void on platforms like Twitter or Reddit or the unending Discord servers.


File: 1672171697480.jpg (104.04 KB, 1598x1600, rubberduck4.jpg)

This sums it up pretty well. I am sorry for the downer but people like yelling into the void for some reason. Maybe some of them should consider getting a rubber duck instead.


File: 1685276189986.jpg (47.62 KB, 640x537, 192e9ab80191530940944f6abe….jpg)

This is actually true. The airlines are closed. But let me state my defense.

The towns, the bars and the pubs are not yet closed. They might be sparse and in the middle of nowhere a lot of the time but there are still plenty of them waiting for new and interesting people like you. And there are still plenty of regulars like me visiting them ever-so-often, so don't feel shy to wander a bit.

After all, Hermes is still here for you!


What makes a person interesting anyway?


Liking a thing! Literature, mechanics, agriculture, horticulture, husbandry, puzzles, philosophy, religion, chemistry, collection, animation, anything and everything that can be liked is interesting someone.

The thing is that "interesting" isn't an innate quality. It means that you interest someone. And everything interests someone. You just have to find those people that are interested in it!
