@Otome-chan@kbin.social

I'm a weeb girl who's fringe in a lot of ways. Please excuse my weird beliefs, I don't bite :3

Political views: far left economics (socialism), conservative/traditional social views. I'm an ex-atheist, turned christian gnostic. I'm happy to chat. No hate, just pursuit of truth and proper living.

Hobbies/Interests: weebshit (anime/manga/japan), video games, romhacking, ai/tech, girly cute pink stuff, politics/religion is fun. I like the occult and conspiracy stuff too.

I have a roku tv and it's kinda the reason I ended up buying a chromecast. Other than paid apps and plex it seems entirely useless for convenient piracy streaming. It also doesn't pull anything into the home menu, and sticks to app launching. Not really great.

Plex is nice but I haven't leaned into it entirely yet. I'm not sure it can end up replicating the streaming experience? But it's nice as a media server.

Ah, this is what my brother is doing I think. I used to be into kodi but it's so clunky. The plex+*arr stack seems cozy for delayed streaming (mark what to watch, watch it later) but does it end up working for streaming? I was also under the impression it's not that great if you lack usenet?

Does it do recommendations? Every time I've tried getting into kodi it was pretty clunky/slow/etc. Hence my desire to get my setup on home screen then launch directly into a stream. Kinda sounds like everyone just launches into an app first.

They did, albeit indirectly. It seems the answer is "no one has done this" which means it's likely not possible with the software that's currently made lol.

Seems most people just go through plex/jellyfin/emby with their usenet *arr setup. Which is no doubt cozy, but it doesn't quite grant the experience I'm after lol. I think most people are just used to launching into a streaming app to see what's on there since that's how most paid streaming stuff works too for the most part. The google tv/amazon fire tv homescreen setup is fairly new and apparently unused by basically everyone lol.

I might have to look into just coding my own launcher to get the features I want lmao. seems like a huge endeavor though. Right now I just have my remote set to be able to instantly jump into my preferred streaming apps, and single/double press home to switch between stock launcher and projectivy. It's not great lol.

I'd take it immediately. Whether it rolls back time as well, or just my physical/biological age, having that reset is good. For time, it lets me be able to jump on financial trends before they happen such as bitcoin. Also lets me redo some stuff I fucked up. For biological age it's just regaining my youth and let's me get on HRT earlier than I did which would've been beneficial. I kinda threw away the past 15 years, so having a redo would be nice.

here's the extension repo that the mihon devs use. It's just a straight reupload of the original extensions list, and that's where the community is centered around at this point.

The original tachiyomi also used apk extensions, it's just that the original list was baked into the app.

I use bypass paywalls clean and never see a paywall. so... yes.

I haven't had any issues with medium personally. But I have pretty extensive blocking as a whole (ublock, adguard, ghostery, ddg, bypass paywalls clean, canvas blocker, etc)

Otome-chan,

I'm paranoid.

I've been using bypass paywalls clean for a while now and it's fantastic. Can confirm I haven't seen any paywalls since installing it.

it's more than a filterlist, also custom code (though the repo you shared has the userscripts that you can install).

I'm pretty picky about voices of iconic characters, but the new guy doing Mario and Luigi is solid. He sounds just like them to me, so no problem.

Sonic is basically what got me invested in voice actor swaps lol. I literally can't stand some of the voice actor swaps in that series because they just sound so drastically different and wrong.

Voice issues happen a lot with anime too when it gets dubbed. Rarely will the dub be better, but there's some iconic dubs like the pokemon cast, or haruhi. With the yuki-chan spin-off series of haruhi, I was really concerned they'd get different VAs and it'd be ruined as a result, but fortunately they had brought back the entire original cast.

For scientific studies you're basically stuck with scihub and unpaywall.

>Promotes self id for nonbinary

>Event is for nonbinary people

>Get upset when people identify as nonbinary and attend the event

I'm not sure I'm seeing why people are upset?

Otome-chan,
Otome-chan avatar

So they identified as men, and the event allowed the men to come? Then I'm failing to see what the issue is?

Otome-chan,

Tech is overcrowded as a field and it gets worse each year. So yes.

I'm a trans woman and don't bother applying because I know that my resume isn't even looked at, and the interview hurdles are just so high that they'll just say no anyway. What's the point if companies refuse to hire me?

Otome-chan,

>hiring for entry level

>saying people are underqualified

The problem is with the companies, not the job seekers. Actually offer true entry level positions, and actually hire the people that apply.

Otome-chan,
Otome-chan avatar

I'm a woman and wasn't even at the event. No clue it was going on, and it seems like it'd be far too expensive for me to attend in the first place. If they're looking for women who are eager to work for them, they're looking in the wrong place.

Otome-chan,

How do you distinguish between the people who genuinely identify as nonbinary and those who are dishonestly doing it?

Otome-chan,
Otome-chan avatar

If they're amab and self identifying as nonbinary, they'd be transgender by definition.

yeah sorry I don't have that sort of mental health to be able to just continually throw myself at a wall for years on end when there ain't even a person on the other side.

Otome-chan,
Otome-chan avatar

yeah learned my lesson. I might try again though and just lie and say I'm latina when I'm not. maybe I'll start getting some offers that way lol.

Otome-chan,

Yeah those sorts of positions are usually locked to college students. So once you graduate you can no longer apply despite those being the positions you're qualified for.
