  1. 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
  2. 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.  :)

  3. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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)

  6. Funny, I tried out Brave 2 days before the thread was posted and really like it but then yeah, same: back to firefox +Privacy badger, ublock and "ddg privacy essentials"! I had to use Windows 7 at my last holiday internship, and really liked it. Faster and more stable than that sh**** windows 10. I can see why a huge tech company (and I mean really huge, so they probably know their stuff) would prefer it aver windows 10. It works and does the job. We have one in our cellar, proudly displayed in my father's "man cave" of sort (well it's more like just everyt
  7. It seems some countries and cities are being hit seriously just now (Bangladesh's hospitals are in a pretty precarious situation it seems, and Sweden's situation is also not that good) while some countries are pretty much recovered. Just to share how it's going over here in Austria, we are mostly opening up everything but still have to wear masks inside of grocery stores, cinemas etc until mid June (after that, only in some places like at barbers). Sports clubs are allowed to train outside and in smaller groups and some clubs and bars are now basically functioning as "night-restaurants" w
  8. Ah, I hadn't used the main distro but Linux Mint which doesn't have this so I didn't know about the google search etc. ... very windows-esque.... I tried out the softwarecenter just now and it worked so far but then again Linux Mint which tries really hard to make it easy for new comers, so I guess you can expect these things to work, though the one on Fedora also works pretty smoothly. (not that I use them though....I mean, I even use NNN, a terminal-based file browser. Screw UI! People say the terminal is complicated but having to click through half a million menus is way more complicated
  9. As for my desktop PC.... let's not talk about that old war machine At least it's fun trying to optimize its limited capabilities (Ok, it not that bad, runs most games... on low settings); I mean, I'm no distro-hopper but I do use it a lot to check out new Linux distros, though I mainly use Linux Mint on it (I used to use Manjaro which I liked but it was kind of unstable, for some reason.), and trying to install a distro and making it as light weight as possible is a well-spend afternoon XD. When I actually want to get some work done I use a Thinkpad P51s. Works smoothly for everything I
  10. Oof, they allowed some shops to open from today onwards, intending to gradually lift the quarantine and now people are storming DIY markets and building centres.

    At least we got this gem. (Turn on the music :D)

      is your DIY stores running a sale ? 

      just asking, for prediction reasons if our place will do a sale when they open up..>.>...

      i need to buy a new pc xD

       

      also keep wearing face mask, epidemic aint over yet, they could resurface :<

  11. I like your answer. Most people wouldn't think about these trivial things as anything special. Imagine a parallel universe with different rules of physics and such. What chemical reactions, properties materials could have, the life forms this universe could produce, etc.... would be fantasy-like. Their stuff would be fantasy to us, and our stuff fantasy to them. That being said, there is enough to discover in our universe, even on our planet. Deep sea creatures look fantasy-ish enough and we barely know anything about them. Who knows what kind of life form, and I mean bacteria and the likes, l
  12. We might just open the first non-essential businesses after Easter vacation, so in one week, considering that the infection curve is flattening plus we didn't see a spike in new infections or deaths.

    However, these businesses, probably all kinds of shops and hairdressers and such, will have strict hygiene regulations, like people having to wear face masks, staff regularly washing/disinfecting hands, just x amount of people at once in the building, etc...

    But everyone who can work from home should work from home, school/uni are still done via the internet (with the exception of the last years, the ones who will graduate.)

    We'll see how that goes...

  14. What's unprecedented is the spike of using the work unprecedented : (I wonder what happened in Jan '17...) Generally, many people are pretty quick to change not only their view point (though some just get even more convinced of their views) but also their rhetoric when their earlier predictions and statements prove to be BS. I guess people don't think that much over the word they use. You could just use "something we've never seen before", (assuming "we" doesn't meen "humanity" or "humans" in this case) and it'd be a truthful statement for most people. But that might be t
