You know, if Microsoft released a completely stripped down version of Windows with no shitware, advertising, tracking, etc, etc, I might actually give it a go.

Something like Win 10 but stripped down to have the look, feel, and functionality of Win 2K.

@guffo this. Make it like 95 or 98 and I'm REALLY in.

at what point do people stop saying "ha! wait until you're my age!" or is this some sort of endless hardship competition?

@spinning_bird @GamingWolf 😂 for REAL. Saw a version of Doom a guy made where any action in the game required a microtransaction that you'd need to scan a QR code for. A true monster 🤣😂🤣

This ad looks like shit.

So a funny thing happens with the web:

Whatever becomes abundant loses impact for conveying value. High res photography was once a way to make a site look valuable. But Unsplash made it abundant and free, so premium sites move on from photos to illustrations.

“Premium” is a moving target.

AI-generated images will become synonymous with low-quality, low value. A smell of junk no (reputable) brand will want on them.

@danilo the best way I've ever seen it described

the curse of writing about video games (and being one-track minded) is that you actually have to play video games. i enjoy video games, but i can feel my brain grow dull as i stare at the pretty colors and click-clack the buttons. i can typically recover from this blue-light lethargy but i fear one day i'll game my ability to write a coherent sentence right into the grave.

@buru5 @rootcompute same. My main blog has like, 18 drafts sitting there in various stages of whatnot 🤣

FINGERNAILS UPDATE: I now have significant fingernails. They still hurt a bit around the edges, but they're not BURNING anymore.

Typing feels really weird. I'm probably going to make millions of typos.

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@guffo these are super interesting to me because my wife bit hers, now she does her own nails so she doesn't. I never have (I bite the sides, the skin, it's weird) and my nails grow so fast. I've always hated cutting them but I have to often because I hate having much nail.

@cory seriously. A cycle of THIS. And will anyone ever admit it or try to stop it.

jake4480,
@jake4480@c.im avatar

@cory eventually I figure it might be the only way anything really ever changes, when it's FORCED to. When somehow doing that doesn't achieve any kind of results or something.

The film Skinamarink is one of the most divisive horror releases of all time. If it clicks for you it really hits. No other film has invoked that disconnected nostalgic feeling of thinking back to your childhood as an adult. It's an incredible experimental piece that landed for me.

-this image isn't from the film

@jeze absolutely. I adore horror and weird shit and I will watch anything. My favorite movie is Pink Flamingos. 🤣 I've also seen all the Chainsaws, all the Hellraisers. Those are big faves. All the Saws too. Liked those less, but, yknow, in for a penny.. 🤣

Is anyone playing Islands of Insight? Can't find the green match for this box in Dyads in the Mist, does anyone know where it is?

@antoniav 🤣 that's a really good question. Maybe just the fun of combat, those dopamine hits from leveling up and finding great loot? That's all I can figure. That's what I love about it.
