Off Topic / Half Life 3 Confirmed? | Boneworks to release December 10th
« on: November 19, 2019, 10:28:24 AM »

They'd never actually use the number, cowards.

Regardless, this announcement has left me empty, and instead I'd like to point you in the direction of Boneworks.

Boneworks may revolutionize VR. But we'll have to see what the announcement brings.

"How to Radicalize a Normie" | Here we go again

This video popped up as a recommendation today while I was watching a Tim Pool video, this video in particular, and I decided to watch it, since I always try to give these videos a chance to play out and explain themselves. Allowing them to explain themselves, and get there points out so that I may counter with my own points, on why what they said is inherently wrong and arrogantly blind to reality. They labeled all these relatively normal, right of center or centrist commentators as "Alt-Right" and "Nazis". Absolutely insane, They've gone off the deep end. And from there, my brain is shut off and I stop listening...

except for this time

I don't know what it was, or what he said, but something hit me. I always dismissed his content because of misuse of words or knee-jerk labels, without actually listening to what the hell he was saying or what was going on. I had an epiphany. Everything I'd ever heard about the left or the "far left/leftists", about every argument and point, had been made by those who are not really a part of that group or usually interact with said group head-on. And any scenes or events that had been, had been edited and modified, and I'd never seen the other point of view. I became complacent and was willing to accept what I saw as true, without questioning what was going on in front of me, in my own life. More things dawned on me, that I usually rejects or dismissed. I wasn't willing to listen to most of what he'd said because most of it was exaggeration or false, but I also rejected what was clearly true. Yes, a lot of this video is bullstuff, but don't let that justify you dismissing what is real.

I've been ignoring the reality that I'd been accepting racist ideas and thought processes, while dismissing criticism with "it's edgy humor" or "in-jest", but the reality was, that I really believed they were just jokes, but I didn't separate funny from reality. The best humor has truth in it, and that was also part of my mindset. That what I said was funny because it was true. And I started believing racist things, even if I didn't recognize that they were indeed racist. I also have been unwilling to accept counter arguments, because you hit a red-flag word. What's a red-flag word? Basically these are terms that will immediatly tell me 'you're bullstuff, I won't listen anymore.'. Do other people have these? probably, but I don't want to say yes or no for sure. Red flag words, for me, included:
  • Racist
  • loveist
  • Homophobe
  • Transphobe
  • Misogynist
  • Bigot
  • Nazi
  • Patriarchy
  • Toxic Masculinity
  • (implied to be racial) Diversity

Basically, anything you expect to hear from the "Feminists PWNED" types, who're the the low hanging fruit being picked and shown. It basically festered into an arrogance, where I felt if you said these words, your opinions had nothing good in them and EVERYTHING was bad. I have to emphasize, this doesn't mean I agree with EVERYTHING in this video, nor do I agree with the modern Social Justice types in their entirety or anything of that nature.  What I'm saying is that I and, probably, many others have become unwilling to hear opposing viewpoints, if the opposition hits some preconceived red-flag territory. This is not healthy. Both sides have they're "The other is the evil, and we're the good" mentality. This video definitely shows that throughout and near the end. However, that doesn't mean everything they said is stuff and should go straight into the trash. And most importantly, I'm not who I thought I was, or what I thought I was. Stay vigilant.

What a wonderful world we live in.

Do you hate Trump?
Do you believe Trump Supporters have no rights?

Well, this is the future! Now you can DOXX your neighbors with an easy search.

No I'm not putting the website here. It's potentially rule breaking, but I just want everyone to be aware of it so they can prepare for the possible incoming mob of jackasses.


A middle schooler was carelessly pointing her fingers at her classmates in a violent fashion. Thankfully she was apprehended and charged before she could cause any further harm to herself and others.


Introduction & Apology

Alright, so I would like to formally apologize to everyone I tried to shill Linux onto recently. I had a bad moment with windows and decided to switch to linux.

That being said, forget Linux, and forget the Linux "Community".

People like TLG will walk up and sell you a sack of stuff and call it gold.
They claim that Linux is Easier, quicker and more efficient. And up until I made the jump, I didn't understand why.
Not why it was all of those things, but why they say it's all of those things despite the fact it's clearly not.

Linux is not easier, it's not faster, it's not more efficient, it lacks compatibility. So why pitch it and push it? Well, emotional reasons are definitely to be expected, but it's more than that.
Let me put it this way, if you had a bad experience or two with a car, would you immediately chuck that son of a bitch in to the trash and go buy some off brand stuff? no, reasonable person would.

Now, if this off brand stuff had been pitched to you as second coming of christ on wheels, and everywhere you read and heard about it, on a surface level, said the same thing... Then you might be inclined to checking it out. And then, they drop the ultimate bomb, cast the ultimate hook, something that will make you say "fine, i'll try it I guess."

gee, where have I heard that before...

But unlike the obvious micro-transaction caveats of "free to play" games, the catch isn't so obvious, but it will dawn on you.

Start up and First Impressions

This is nice, I guess. Depending on your distro, it can look different because of desktop environments and all the options that you have there. But for simplicity sake, I'll just talk about XFCE on Ubuntu, since I used Pop!_OS with Xubuntu. It took a little bit of terminal usage, not intuitive but it worked.

However, you'll notice that it looks a lot like a mac in appearance, but it's more window's like in functionality.
None of this is really that strange or unusual, and finding specific applications was an issue until I installed whisker...

Okay, sounds all good right? but each time I want to add a piece of basic functionality, it feels like I'm justifying it with "well it wasn't that hard."

But once this is all set up it'll all be alright, right?


Applications and Snowballing

Every, single, application needs to be built or installed via the terminal or the package manager. In this case the package manager is the Pop Shop.

Not bad, not bad. But some things need to updated, I'll just let it update...

Needs to restart cool, I'll just restart and-

what... what's this? where's my OS?!

Now from here, basically my OS is toast. (Btw this screen as functionality, if you hit a specific combo of keys, it basically brings you to a terminal screen.) I tried following guides and online posts on anything to get this back to normal. Resetting the Kernel, new drivers, disabling drivers etc.

Well stuff, I gotta reinstall my OS, I guess...

Start Up and Fir- wait...

This is okay... i guess. I mean it wasn't too hard the first time, I'll just get everything back to the point I was before.

Maybe I should install those new drivers this time, the guide said this was the issue. If I pre-empt it, maybe it will work out better.

Well, I guess I better restart and... oh no...

forget, not again...

(This cycle continues for several installs as I try to figure what the issue is, in vain...)

What happened, why? This is bullstuff. I was told it would be easier...

Linux Liars and Angry Anarachists

Well, it started to occur to me, as I was watching these Linux user videos, what was going on, what happened. They've basically drank their own kool-aid and refuse accept they're wrong. None of their issues with Windows that they ever mention expand past BSoD memes and "Microsoft is Spying on me". Notice something wrong? these aren't real consistent issues, these are semi-political and issue specific problems. They're not issues with design, compatibility or intuitive usage.

These are people who have become so upset with Microsoft's stuffty practices that they're willing to throw away any iota of common sense, just to destroy Microsoft. They also make these crazy claims that "Linux is the Future of X" and it will somehow surpass Windows' 78.58% market share with their 1.76% market share. This is Windows Derangement Syndrome. There is no reasoning with them. They'll claim "Linux is Fast". But Linux is basically as fast as a car speeding into a brick wall. They'll claim Linux is compatible, you just gotta install this, and this, and this and that and this and that and then... You get the point. Linux is a clunky OS that requires users do absurd amounts of research to make it even comparable to windows.

Linux is better than windows*
*Most Assembly required.

Linux is not Human Friendly, and the Linux Community is made up of Fraudulent salesmen with a vendetta against Microsoft.


Not much to say, just read the title and watch the video.

Games / Spyro Reignited Trilogy | PC Release + Modding
« on: September 06, 2019, 11:16:10 PM »

      Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a recreation of the original three Spyro games from the Playstation 1. This recreation is noteable for having to recreate the game, nearly from the ground up as all of the original source code was lost. However, using inhouse tools that work similar to usermade tools like SpyroEdit, they were able to extract gem locations and presumably level models. This recreation offers both the original soundtrack and a remastered soundtrack which features a dynamic mode. In the dynamic mode, depending on location, instruments in the music will get quieter or louder. The most obvious use of the dynamic soundtrack is a galloping sound effect which you will hear anytime you charge, This is similar to the extra drums that will play in the Super Mario World soundtrack whenever you ride a Yoshi. Spyro Reignited Trilogy was made in Unreal Engine 4 and released under Unreal Engine 4.19 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and 4.21 for Nintendo Switch.

    Aside from the Capability to run with a true uncapped framerate, which will unfortunately start destroying physics as the framerate exceeds either your refresh rate or 120 fps, (we're not entirely sure of which yet though) The PC release has unleashed another Pandora's Box, Mods. Unlike Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, Spyro was made in a repetitively 'easy to modify' engine. Using pre-existing programs, it is entirely possible to effectively "unzip" the three pak files which contain all of the assets and most of the files needed to run the game. Unfortunately, because the game was made in UE4 (Unreal Engine 4) and not UE3 (Unreal Engine 3), blueprints cannot be decompiled and the other files can be finicky at best. But with that aside, the community has made great strides in less than a week. As shown above, there is now a mod which can replace Spyro's model with Cynder, make Spyro have his "Dark Spyro" skin, famously used in The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night. However, this does show one of the major weakness of modding this game, every mod has to OVERWRITE a preexisting asset, meaning you can't just add a mod will give you an extra cheat code to access a new model. There is a silver lining, these mods seem to be able to run by being set aside in a seperate pak file with an "_P" at the end of the file name, prior to the extension, which will allow it to take priority over the other assets in the game, without deleting the original.

Pro Jared Returns | The Plot Thickens


Holy forget. I went into this video expecting to be laughing my ass off, calling him a forgetface child enthusiast piece of stuff, and I came out with a realization.

This is, yet another, rage mob that took unfounded lies and destroyed a man's career.

forget cancel culture.

Democrats begin formal Impeachment Proceedings against President Trump

No big paragraph or anything. Just this:


yeah no big title or format this time.

Basically, 8chan, which is basically diet 4chan. Kind of A mix of Reddit and 4Chan imo.

So basically, because 8chan didn't censor people and nuke them of their platform, they're being punished and pointed to for these shootings. Ironically it's actions like these that cause people to go down the path of these violent actions. Silencing the people, doesn't make their grievances disappear.  All this will do is lock people off from expressing stuffty ideas, getting counter argued, and ultimately bettering both. Instead the person who had a chance at redemption is shoved into a dark pitri dish of their own stuffty ideas, which crop up in small filtered communities in which their ideas become validated.

The only reason to silence ideas, is because you fear they're better than your own. This is an action to show force. Kneel or be destroyed.

Silence or be Silenced.
Cloudflare is another omni-present system that is all around the internet. Many, many sites use it.

But the people's dependence on these monopolies has it's drawbacks, and this is the biggest one. If you piss off the computer gods, if you say a word they don't like, or even if something happens beyond your control and you just happen to not hold their ideals. Boom, the walls fall.

But of course, none of this is really happening.
After all, there is no war in Ba Sing Se.
