I'm going to show you how to quote old posts in newer posts. This won't let you necrobump or anything, but it will let you reference old posts if you need too.

I only posted this because it seems lots of newcomers don't read the rules and post referral links and other things, or post topics asking for warez links or stuff. I just noticed how Go+ got banned for posting a referral link.

(Thanks Badspot for stickying this!)

1. Do not post ambiguous topics.


2. Do not post adult content.
- That means no nudity or gross stuff.

3. No warez - Do not talk about pirating software AT ALL.

4. Use the Search feature before posting a question.

5. Do not plea for sympathy

    * Do not make posts about how you are leaving the forums. Just leave.
    * Do not make posts about how the game isn't fun for you anymore.  Just stop playing.
    * Do not make posts about how you are going to kill yourself.  Just do it.


6. Think before you post - Completely unintelligible posts will be locked. Also read Badspot's topic above this one.

7. Do not flame - If the entire point of your post is to tell someone what an idiot they are, don't bother.

8. Do not cross post. - Do not post the same thing in more than one forum.

9. Do not advertise other forums.

10. No pyramid/referral schemes -  No one is going give you money or an iPod/flatscreeen monitor/xbox 360/whatever just for getting people to click on some crappy link.  It's a scam to get you to spam forums for them.  Stop posting this crap.

Lets break down a quote so I can show you how to take an old quote from a locked post and use it  for reference in newer posts.

let's start with this:

This is the Author's name. This can literally say anything, but for authenticity, take the username from the post and put it here.
author=Miga

link=topic=16580.msg227654#msg227654

this is the url it will take everything after https://forum.blockland.us/index.php?, and it will take you there.

to get a posts url to include the msg code like ".msg227654#msg227654" instead of just the topic number, click the posts time stamp. which would look like this:

May 23, 2007, 02:16:15 AM

date=1179900975

now this is the timestamp. It is the current time in seconds, and I think it doesn't account for DST. so you may have to adjust the hour.

https://currentmillis.com/

put it through this converter an take the last 3 seconds off.

Now if you do this without adjusting the hour it will have a timestamp that looks like this:

1179904575000

but even once you take off the end zeroes, it may show the time as an hour off. just go back in and lower or raise the hour until the timestamp is shown properly in the preview.

As far as formatting the post, I hope I don't have to explain that here, just try and get the formatting to match the original post in your preview.

but for links in particular, you can hover over and right click and click "copy link" or "copy link address" and it should just put the link into your clipboard instead of having to go entirely to that url.

And again, because I know someone will miss it. this does NOT enable you to necro bump, this is for referencing old posts in newer posts, not for exploiting the website.

Off Topic / Blockland Classic Theme for Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey
« on: August 10, 2021, 02:08:24 PM »

 
I've tested this on firefox and chromium browsers. It looks the same on both so I'm dropping it here.

File is listed below. Copy and paste the text inside ofSwollow's CSS Inject. to replace that theme to match the one posted above.

This is to be used with Swollow's mod inject.

Swollow's original topic.

I haven't changed any of the meta data aside from removing the url on the css inject, so it still says whatever swollow put in there. But the CSS itself is different and that's what will make it look like the BLF above.

I'm recommending the mod inject directly from the source, as last time I uploaded the mod inject I ended up posting an older compromised one. So instead, just use the up to date inject, and that's that.

As for what to do to get rid of those green highlights and orange titles. In the mod inject set these variables to false.

"Nah Tendy Dough" | A Company of Pure Visceral Hate for it's Customers.




Introduction

Okay, before anyone asks why I chose not to explicitly name the company, I would like to inform you that it's so that Deep Fried Chicken Tendy Dough is
A company that acts somewhere between generic comic book CEO villain and Dennis Rodman's Pal.

Gimme, Gimme, Chicken Tend-dough over here is guilty of some of the most morally abhorrent garbage I think I've ever seen.

Sure, they don't commit the Microtransaction, Lootbox and Ads Sin that many developers now do. But just as they have been in the past, they got
creative with their bullstuff.

Fan? more like Banned.

So lets say you're a fan, like a big fan of Nibble Tender Dubstep's video games. Obviously, the common story for the past forever has been that Nine Ten Don't has
nuked any fan games that have so much as tried to imitate in a demo, a Niagra Tent Dart product.

But that's not what I'm talking about. Let's say a beloved Youtuber, loved Nah Nah Tanning Dolan so much he made a slogan for it. Let's say this slogan was oh, Happy Controller Males.

Now, in the unfortunate situation where this beloved Youtuber has done the unthinkable and taken their own life. A non profit decides to make a sleeve for Knobbly Ted Talk Dogs' Happy Controllers with the Youtuber's
famous slogan "Happy Controller Males" printed on it, with all proceeds going to mental health awareness charities. What do you think Nore Tech Dips did in response?

A. Promoted the product for the good of Mental Health Awareness and the unfortunate passing of a Beloved Youtuber.

B. Created a competing Happy Controller which had similar goals of Mental Health Awareness to reach a wider audience.

C. Listed the Youtuber in their up coming game as an honorable mention and reminding everyone of Mental Health Awareness.

D. Nothing
E. Nuke the listing for Happy Controller Males via a Cease and Desist letter.
If you picked A B or C you're WRONG.
If you answered D. you're still loving WRONG!

The correct answer is the invisible E.

They loving sent a Cease and Desist, to a non profit raising awareness in memorial of a hardcore fan who committed suicide, because the sleeves said "Happy Controller" on it.

This, right here is why I'm not outright saying Nora Tendrils Duh.

Nani The Duck loving might decide to send me a Cease and Desist, Likely? I have no clue. But a few years ago had you asked me if the above events would have ever happened... I'd have said
"maybe in a parody video". But forget me we live in The Onion now.

Pandemic? More like Bandemic.

What's that? You want to host a Melee Tournament? Well, looks like we've got a WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC. Guess we'll have to host it onl- and it's been C&D'd.

Thanks, but No Thanks Tho. You absolute loving pieces of stuff. As far as I'm concerned, they are PRO-VIRUS after this one. I don't care how much you hate Melee.
The only other way they could have this tournament is in person, risking giving each-other gaseous viral death.

forget you Night Tight Dry.

Waiting for the new Creatures Perpendicular? Have it then...

And then stop updating it loving less than 6 months after release. Check out Stardew Valley, and forget NO TIE THO for the empty promises.
Stardew Valley has had consistent quality updates ever since it's release about 5 years ago. And when it launched it had more than enough content to enjoy it until the next update.

Creatures Perpendicular? Nah, forget you, it doesn't even have as much content as the last game Fresh Foliage. Which came out in 2013.

But to be fair, I guess it must be because it didn't sell very wel- Oh.
Oh look at that.. it's the 2nd best selling game on the Noble Tock Dock Swap, behind Michael Buggy (4*6/3).

It sold 32.63 Million copies. But eh, lets move all our devs from this clearly failed game over too our number 9 best seller's sequel. Squat Pray Leap Ahhhh Touchdown Tunes 3.

Michael's Anniversary.

Here have some stuffty ports, they're $40. Hyper Michael Executes Order 66 is the stuffty japanese re-release which is bad for speedrunning. Hyper Michael Not Overcast seems to have stolen the dolphin emulator, but atleast Hyper Michael Fakes the Moon Landing was pretty good. Shame we didn't get the sequel.

Oh and have a crappy nostalgia toy clone and don't forget. Michael is going to be put in the Guillotine the following March. (Which has already passed now.)

Great loving anniversary. It's right up there with Sonic's 10th anniversary, and Star War's 20th anniversary. Bravo.

A New Console? PFFFFFFFFFFT BWAHAHA

forget you it's just an oled revision, but now the stand doesn't suck, lmao.



Thanks for coming to my Null Ted Does talk.

This really isn't a proper thread as much as an amgery rant, but whatever.

forget this company, I'm moving completely to PC. And just for good measure, forget Activision too.

The Linux Thread

Getting away from those prying eyes



A Whole GNU World

Let's get down to business, this is the list where I'll put useful and helpful Linux software.
I'll be avoiding cliche and usually garbage software like GIMP.

Krita - A Photoshop-like Image Editing tool. It has much less of a learning curve than GIMP.
Librewolf - A Fork of Firefox that removes telemetry among other security risks. Note: All login information is set not to be saved by default, and enabling it requires editing the config file. Browsing history is deleted by default on close and will not reopen when restarted. These are security features, but if you wish to disable them I'll have a guide section later in the thread.
MultiMC - An OpenSource Minecraft client with many features that the default vanilla cannot offer. Such as Isolated instances, Importing and Exporting instances from one MultiMC install to another, or between users. Modloaders can be installed via a setting option on each instance.
KeePass and KeePassX - A Multiplatform Password Manager, KeePass is available on most every platform relevant today, and some that are certainly not. Android, MacOS, Windows, Linux, and IOS. What this means is you can put your KeePass file on a usb storage device, and take it to multiple different software environments and have access to the same KeePass file.
Pakitheme - A Terminal based GTK Repackaging tool used to convert installed themes to Flatpak. If you're having issues with some pieces of software not following the system theme, it's possibly because it wasn't a flatpak install of the theme.
Atom - An open source text editor with a large community supporting it. Nearly anything you want is available to install as a plugin. And those are almost always open source too.
VLC Media Player - I know I said I was gonna avoid "cliches" but this one is an exception. VLC is a useful video playing and capture playback tool.
Virtual Machine Manager - An Open Source virtual machine software. If you still need some things from Windows, or you want to go Distro Hopping without erasing your main install, this is a great option.
LibreOffice - This is a great Office Alternative with file compatibility between MSOffice and LibreOffice. Just be warned, some formatting may be altered from exporting to a MSOffice file format, but otherwise the content will be the same.


Linux Distributions

Pop_OS! - Ubuntu Based, very stable and user friendly, great for beginners.

Mint - Ubuntu Based, stable, user friendly and great for everyone.

Manjaro - Arch Based, stability depends, user friendly, great for slightly advanced users.

Arch - Arch, stability is up to you, not user friendly but well documented, great for tinkerers.

Gentoo - Gentoo, stability = California's tectonic plates, not user friendly and documentation is hit or miss, great for masochists.

Off Topic / The Fediverse | A Stronger Internet
« on: April 19, 2021, 12:26:24 PM »




Pre-Ramble

So, let me try this again. I know I've shilled the fediverse many times before, and most of the time I end up explaining it like stuff, and most people don't seem to get it with the comparisons I've made. My "It's like EMAIL" example seems to be awful at explaining this, so I'll try to use more familiar ideas I guess.
Either way, on to the Introduction.


Introduction - Fediverse? Huh?

This is going to be kind of strange to explain. But it's kind of like if everyone could host their own youtube, or facebook. But you could all access eachothers pages and posts. Like they're able to grab and embed Youtube Videos onto other Youtube sites. "But there's only one youtube" Yes, but imagine it like this.

This is what Youtube currently looks like:



If Youtube were Federated it would look like this:


This is a fictional fediverse youtube site named : Youtubewithus.com

Youtubewithus.com is an Instance of Youtube.

Every video hosted on Youtubewithus.com can be found from any other Instance of Youtube. And any other instance hosting videos can be found on Youtubewithus.com

For example we see TVFilthyFrank@YTdark.net. Which is a channel hosted on the YTDark.net Instance. YTDark.net is a public Instance.
Public Instances allow any one to create a new account on their instance, under their rules and TOS of course.

Now lets look at UNICEF@UnicefYT.org. This is the UNICEF channel hosted on the UnicefYT.org instance. the UnicefYT.org Instance is private.
This Instance will only allow specific people to create accounts on their instance.


Why?

Well, there are several reasons. But the most obvious one is reliability. How often does Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit or your other standard social media network go down?
Often? Probably not, unless it's facebook. But when it does, it usually lasts a few hours. That may not sound like much, but when many of these networks used for businessses, this can
be catastrophic. In the fediverse, the ability to take down the entire network would take an insane amount of computational power, research and time.

There's also security. Recently Facebook had millions of accounts leaked, through a simple exploit. However, fediverse websites are not only-decentralized. They follow an open-source blue-print.
With enough eyeballs, every bug is squashed. If millions of developers were looking at facebook's source code, this exploit would've likely been fixed. And even if it hadn't, in a system of thousands of instances, no one
instance would hold every account.


Old Internet? Stop being nostalgic.

You're probably right that I'm harping on the past, but the old internet was, for the most part, better. Let me give you an example outside of websites.

Most games in the early 2000s on PC had a system where users hosted servers and maybe the original developer hosted a server-listing server.
Servers were community owned and driven overwhelmingly. However, today, most games centralize their entire server network inside their own company.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
Modern Halo MCC

These are two big examples in recent times. Even casual servers are owned by their development company. The same issues apply here.
If their servers go down, the game goes down. And eventually, these servers will go down for good. However, even to this day, it is possible to
run Halo CE, TF2, CS:GO, Unreal Gold and Minecraft servers (of various versions).

You are not locked into the servers that Microsoft, Valve or Epic create.

And this is similar into how in the Federated Youtube, you would not be locked into Youtube's own Instance.


Great, I bet it all looks like crap though, or it's unstable.

Not really, many federated social networks are fully functioning and look great. And on top of that, if you like an instance but not their website, you can use downloadable open source clients. Similar in how you can download the discord app.

Mastadon - Fediverse equivalent to Twitter


PeerTube - Fediverse equivalent to Youtube


Frendica - Fediverse equivalent to Facebook

DDG has it.

DuckDuckGo is also in most web browsers as a default search engine option.

Off Topic / The "forget Wal-Mart" Thread | forget all things Wal-Mart
« on: January 15, 2021, 11:06:46 AM »


Disclaimer: This thread mainly focuses on Wal-Mart's effect in the United States and China.

Wal-Mart is a company that supports Child Slavery and Slave Wages. While they're not supporting human-rights abuses, they're sucking all the wealth out of any area they step into and leaving them an empty husk.

Nearly every low price at Wal-Mart isn't low without some other trade-off.

First, and foremost. Wal-Mart prays on low-income Americans, although I know many people who shop at Wal-Mart are not low-income. Wal-Mart is convenient, the prices are low, and they typically even have a subway just before you leave the building. But this is all a honey-pot to take away what little buying power low income Americans may have.

Let's side track a minute, and talk Local-Business and Local-Business that sources items Locally.



Minimally items from outside of the community are imported,
therefore minimal amounts of foreign shipping companies are paid,
and therefore foreign manufacturing doesn't take very much money out of your community.

Compared to Chain-Businesses.



Now, in this situation, foreign shipping and manufacturing is the what
makes up a Chain-Stores items and therefore means that most of the
money goes out of the community, rather than coming back into it.

And for the sake of brevity and not making an eye-sore chart, the fat cats pocketing money is included in foreign shipping/manufacturing.

That bottom chart, is Wal-Mart in it's purest form. And as you shop there more, you become more dependent on it, since it prays on the logic "I can't afford that" And as they export your income, more and more, this mindset will become stronger and stronger. Eventually, even Wal-Mart will become too expensive.



Wall of Personal "People of Wal-Mart" experiences:
If you have ever been to Wal-Mart, you'll know what I'm talking about, but basically it's like Wal-Mart is a different dimension.
Share your experiences if you have any, or how it effected your community, and I'll quote it and post it here. for now, it's blank tho.




TL;DR SHOP LOCALLY. Avoid stores that excessively import items and therefore export your community's buying power. And above all else. forget Wal-Mart.

Off Topic / Parler Pantheon Thread | It's dead, lol.
« on: December 15, 2020, 08:09:22 PM »


The Pre-ramble
Some of you may have seen the Twitter Megathread, where the stupidest of the stupid posts can be found. Second only to classic Tumblr posts and Blockland Forum antics, Twitter has some of the most insane posts. Despite the fact that Twitter has the strictest and weirdest rules, they still hold the most insane and sometimes violent offenders on their site.

What is Parler?
Parler is more right-wing as left-wing twitter bans anything for thinking the wrong way or supporting the wrong person. They also might just ban you if someone finds out you said a no-no word 16 years ago. They also might ban you if you ever had the wrong opinion. Oh, and they also might ban you for... everything.

Why tho?
This site is for those who have either been banned by twitter for anything that ranges from breaking a rule to existing. I've noticed trying to make a twitter account ranges from "okay" to "never going to happen" in terms of people's results. Ultimately though, Parler is just red twitter both metaphorically and literally. So you're likely to just end up seeing more of the same stuff but from a right-wing perspective instead of a left-wing one. Post whatever stuff you find there, here I guess


It's dead, lol.

Off Topic / Apple Megathread | I Bought a Mac
« on: December 01, 2020, 06:48:26 PM »
Apple Megathread


Introduction
Okay, before anyone freaks out. No, this is not going to be the 'LMFAO PCs BTFO, MAC FOREVER' thread. I recently bought a Mac, which means I've basically used or interacted with every type of Apple Product over the past 10 years, and I have a general understanding of it. So I will be giving my perspective on it as a person who has used basically
any well known operating system. I will talk good and bad about these products.

Macs
So this year I have bought my first Mac. It is an M1 Macbook Air. I have been thoroughly impressed. While the baseline 8GB Ram and 256GB Hard Drive puts
the $999 at a steep entry point, and any other Mac in the past 5 years would've turned me off with that kind of spec, the CPU has made all the difference. For those
who don't know the M1 CPU is a modified ARM processor. Arm is a 64bit RISC processor. Basically this means it uses less low-level functions to accomplish the same goals.
This means the CPU uses less energy and is more efficient, but typically programs are larger because there are more instructions at an Assembly level.

Even as an early adopter, meaning most programs run through an x86_64 to ARM Emulator, this is an absolutely amazing laptop. It's blown away laptops with twice the ram and capacity in terms of storage and efficient use of ram. Even through the emulator. Using the emulator, known as Rosetta 2, most software runs pretty well. However, just like modern versions of Linux, and apparently the latest verisons of MacOS before this, x86 applications that were 32bit are incompatible out of the box.

MacOS is an impressive OS with some pretty cool and intuitive features. Swiping between different fullscreen applications is pretty handy. Similar to the Windows feature of having multiple desktops, but it's actually easy to use and not annoying. But MacOS also lacks a pretty big feature out of the box, Locking windows to the side of the screen or dragging them up to the top to make them fullscreen is not a default feature, and adding it costs money. Absolutely ridiculous. Also, as of this generation of Macs, BootCamp is no longer supported. You can still connect to other windows desktops through the Microsoft Remote Desktop app, but that doesn't help you if you want to use something other than Windows.

The MacBook Air as well as the Macbook Pro, both have 2 USB C ports and a HEADPHONE JACK PORT.  I will bring this up again in the iPhone review. But this is pretty good.
A few years back I'd get upset at no USB A ports, but basically every computer for the past 5 years has had a usb C port and so has every android phone. So if you don't have a USB A to USB C port, then you're a bit behind. But if you've been in the Mac Ecosystem and only recently upgraded to a Macbook with these USB C exclusive designs, then you may have a point, but again I'll leave that in the iPhone Review.

The battery life is pretty astounding, this is likely because of the ARM Processor. Now it's not the mindblowing levels many reviewers will tell you it is. Many claiming insane things like "I don't even carry my charger" or "it lasted me 2 days!". Unless you just carry it around as a paper weight/flash light, then these claims are stupidly optimistic.
However, it does hold a charge pretty well, as after using it under a decent loads, I typically only need to charge it every .5 to 1.25 days. Which depending on what I'm doing is pretty good. Heavy loads like playing The Talos Principle definitely hits that .5 day mark. However, browsing and coding through RDP tends to get me closer to a day.

The Display is a 2560x1600 6:10 2K Display with 400 nit brightness. Pretty good, but not quite HDR quality. But it's one of the more high-res displays I've seen in a laptop at this pricepoint. Many laptops around $999 offer 4k displays, but those usually end up bumping the price up 200-300 dollars. And beside that, even if they do, they all bafflingly choose 16:9 displays, which leave a stupid chin at the bottom of the display. I get 16:9 is a desktop monitor standard, but following standards without reason leads stupid decisions like this. I've heard the argument that "but that would just leave black bars around the top and bottom of the screen on video." and to that I say having a temporary black border at the top and bottom of the display is better than having a permanent giga-border at the bottom of the display.

I give the MacBook Air a solid 8.5/10. Best Laptop on the market for the price. but not the best contemporary laptop for the price that I've ever seen.

iPhones
Now on the other end of the spectrum, we have the iPhone. If you like taking decent photos at an expensive price, just get a decent purpose-built camera. If you're just bought into the ecosystem, then this may still make sense, but the iPhone has to be the most frustrating fragile glass rectangle of design incompetence since the Galaxy Note 7. Ever since the iPhone 7, apple has dropped the headphone port, which wouldn't be so bad except, for some reason beyond my understanding, they stuck with their stupid lightning port. I guess it's proprietary, but if you can put a headphone port and a USB C port on your loving mac you can put it on this over priced slab of glass.

But even if it was still on there, this phone drives me up a wall with how it's designed. Unlike android phones, the iPhone is not a portable computer with a touch screen, it's more like a tonka tablet. Transferring files is a nightmare, using it to work on files is typically a disaster, and usually only proprietary blue-tooth items will connect to it.
Alongside that, using this phone and it's apps can be the most un-intuitive and frustrating experience. While I praised apple for ignoring the monitor standard in laptops, and going with a 16:10 display, I'm going to shred them for ignoring well-known control standards and trying to nintendo it.  The problem with this method is sometimes you launch a Nintendo Wii and sometimes you launch a Virtual Boy. And the iPhone's UI and Gestures are an awful experience. Almost all of them are exclusive to the phone, and that sets the iPhone on a track for a steep learning curve.

This also means jumping from an iPhone to an Android device is also a learning curve. The iPhone is not a good first phone for anyone, it's not a good phone to show someone how smart phones work and what they're good for. The iPhone is not a good phone for daily use or as a work phone. The iPhone is just a total disaster. Avoid it at all costs.

I'm giving this a -5/10

loving avoid this garbage. It's less than worthless, and it will rewire growing minds to a locked down and broken interface.

Other
AppleTV is okay, I guess. I wouldn't give it a yes or a no, I'd say you're probably better off with a roku stick if you don't have an iPhone, a Mac or any device that uses apple's services and you must have a smartTV stick. But it's just okay. There's not really much to say here, and honestly, I really don't like these things in general. I'd say hooking your laptop up to your TV gives you a more responsive and enjoyable experience than any of these smart-sticks or even the built-in smartTV stuff.

I'll give it a 5/10.

This is gonna seem noob as hell. And most of the links in the sticky seem unhelpful on this specific issue.

More to the point, searching "switch$" seems to get me more addons about switches than info on switch statements.

My basic question is this.

I've been looking through addon code, modifying, trying to learn whats what through both reading up on info, and modifying and testing.

From my understanding, or a guess this has to do with casting the value to a string.

But it's a switch statement.

What is the difference between switch$() and switch() statements?
