  1. With computers I usually go for, as long as it works it works, even if it's a bit slower. (can always mitigate this with light weight SW). I did by a new Laptop for Uni but only because I used to only have a desktop PC (which still works fine, though you see the difference in loading/booting/compiling time...) I like the idea of System76, the only thing I wonder is, if I install another Distro than PopOS! how much "optimization" I'd loose. They did put their drivers on the AUR, but since their PopOS! is custom made they probably optimized their HW and SW for this.... That being said, it's not like any other machine is optimized for Linux anyway and its mostly about drivers, I guess.
  2. Watching the Ingenuity (Mars Helicopter) stream instead of studying... with a certain irony since what I'm studying is a prerequisite for the "Satellite Communication Exam" that I could (kinda want to) take in my masters ...

  3. Sleet in the middle of April. 3 days ago it was really hot and now it's basically like late fall or a mild winter....
  4. Liked this one, though I'm a sucker for epic music. But I guess that's maybe stretching the meaning of "song"... After School Distraction by Yakushimaru Etsuko was also pretty good (like most made by her!):
  5. I think the availability problem will continue for a bit longer, I fear maybe even into the next year, but I'm sure at least until fall. I only hope my Laptop isn't going break...
  6. Halfway though Wonder Egg Priority. Like it, the music, animation, art style and no character feels out of place, but with shows like this the ending can make or brake it.
  7. Am I the only one who knows politicians by name by not what they actually look like?

      I don't know their name or what they look like (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

      I don't watch much TV so a lot of times I don't know what someone looks like either.  I read a huge amount though so I often know their names, affiliations, and biases.  Everything else, just not their looks.

  8. Didn't watch much of of this year since I watched some older stuff but the one's that I watched and that stuck out to me not in a specific order: Your Hands Of Eizouken was amazing, definitly my favourite of this year Kakushigoto was hilarious and oddly wholesome, even though it doesn't try to be. ReZero 2nd Season was disturbing in a good way. One of the more classical Isekai that I enjoyed, especially since I didn't like the end of the 1st season Otome Game something different but really good. I like the ending partly because it actually feels like it's done. Though the light novels still go one... Ascendance of a Bookworm was good but not as good as the second season. But might still be my fav. isekai. Deca-Dence is kind of hard to categorize. I enjoyed it a lot but everything kind of got messy in the second half. Sing Yesterday was .... oddly relatable... I didn't want to but I could relate to the main character I watched a couple more like Kaguya (which was fun, but not like the 1st season) but overall I think I've watched everything I'd probably enjoy except Jujutsu Kaisen. Might get around watching that soon.
  9. Started the 12 Kingdoms series, (had an anime adaption) and its pretty good. Isekai before Isekai became a thing (well, the trope already existed but it wasn't a huge thing in the 90s) and with a female protagonist thrown without anything into a pretty dark world. Also, the language isn't too hard, though it uses a bit too few kanji which sometimes make it harder to understand. Also read the original novel of welcome to the NHK (way harder, with some pretty complex kanji) and it manages to be even more depressing. I heard the eng translation is pretty good, so I can only recommend it since it's genuinely a good novel completely detached from the anime. I though about reading Earthsea some time ago, but I might finish the Arséne Lupin books before that. Really liking the gentleman criminal vibes; might prefer it over Sherlock Holmes even!
  10. Sadly forums have been declining in popularity for the last 5+ years. Especially Discord, which I think has the most to do with this, people just stopped visiting forums. You usually have more people on a Discord server to interact with, servers can be very different from each other considering how they can be customized with bots and various roles (not saying forums can't be unique too!) and they tend to be fast, in real-time which apparently more people like. Personally I favor forums but don't have the time to be on here for a lot of time for the last year or so. Browsing forums on the phone is often kind of a pain (even though there are apps for this) and I think many people browse the net on their phone for a significant amount of time. I think if forums in general want to gain in popularity again they'd somehow need to reinvent themselves to cater to a more "fast-consuming" audience, which would piss off the older members and they'd probably lose many of the veterans. That being said, in terms of anime forums AF is pretty active and a cozy place with great members and it's fairly unique, not one of those copy and paste forums that have the same layout but with different colours. Another thing I like about the more traditional forums. Since they tend to be "slower" they usually don't attract trolls anymore, since they migrated to discord or whatever. Don't know how often I've seen people getting banned on Discord for purposefully annoying people only to reappear a few minutes later under a different name. Obviously that'd also be possible on here, but still...
  11. Just realized how much my orthography suffers from writing on the keyboard all the time. Wanted to write "dictionary" by hand and I wrote "dictunary", looked at it, realized it was wrong but couldn't write it correctly for the sake of it. I *had to* type it with a keyboard and look at the keys I pressed until I was sure how to write the word. (and I got it right the first time I typed it with my keyboard)

    And I don't even use any kind of auto-correct. I just never write in English by hand...

    Also, I become really inpatient when writing by hand, because it's so slow...

      I have a similar issue with passwords all the time. I have what I call “finger macros”.  My brain tells my fingers.. “type that password.. you know the one you’re always typing?  I think it starts with a “b”.  Yeah, that one.  Just do it.  I don’t need to know the details.”  After a while I couldn’t tell you the password to save my life, but if I sit down at a keyboard I never have any trouble logging in.  :)

  12. When I look outside rn, I get the impression that the gates of hell have been opened, that's how awful it looks. Might even get a flooding this time in our town, which hasn't happened so far. Also the power might die any second now, sheesh.

  13. 2 more episode and I'll crack the 8000 watched episodes of anime. Hmm, maybe a movie as the 8000th episode?... Too many classics to choose from...

  14. Damn, we just went through the Ariana 5 rocket crash of 1996 in my college class since we're learning about fault tolerance, handling etc.

    Never want to be the guy who causes a 5 Billion $ crash because of a simple memory overflow.

    (Well, I once broke a not so cheap robot in the robotic club during high school, because I thought the sensor data gives me distance values in meters, instead of cm..... Fell right of the edge of the table)
