I didn't even know Saturday cartoons still existed at all

i kind of assumed fox box / 4kidz was like the last of them lol i used to get up every weekend at like 7AM so i could watch the entire 4kidz block

which kind of reminds me of old anime dubs... they have a certain kind of cheese to them you don't really see anymore
It was fox kids, which had beetle borgs, captain planet, goosebumps, all that cool stuff - and then it was fox box which had like one peice, TMNT, fighting foodons, ultimate muscle and shaman king - some of those great cheesy dubs you mentioned - and then it became 4kids tv which had....almost nothing good (fricken hated viva pinyata) when the saturday morning cartoons on fox were done I'd have just enough time to catch power rangers on the abc kids channel

and yeah as far as I know they don't air saturday morning cartoons anymore, of course I haven't watched actual TV in like a decade - but for traditions sake every saturday I put on some classics for my kiddos to watch. it's not always something that was on one of those channels but just some classic cartoon I remember watching as a kid. this past weekend we watched daffy ducks fantastic island, something I haven't seen since I was like 6 years old - I couldn't even remember the name, had to google "that looney toons movie with a wishing well" lol

Adventure Quest
Ironically u can still play AQ and AQ worlds but now they have their own "Artix Launcher". That is one thing I find extremely annoying nowdays every game developer making their own "game launcher" it's so redundant - launch a launcher to launch a launcher to launch the game. anyone who has RDO installed through steam knows what I'm talking about

you guys remember sprite webcomics? y'know, the ones where you took ripped graphics from games on a random website like the spriters resource and made comics with them in ms paint or photoshop? yeah! those!
oh man those were super fun, I loved reading those back in the day and would occasionally make my own. seeing the websprite comics also makes me remember all the great flash games I used to play - mainly the escape themed point and click games like Exmortis and Dead Case. thank goodness lots of them were preserved - but many of the ones that were on misc/unpopular flash websites are gone forever

when everything had its own website, be it a game, a game server, or just a community based around a topic.

today everything is just centralised onto a subpar social media platform like discord, and we all complain about it when they do something stupid for the 20th time this year. but nobody is willing to get off these platforms and start something of their own, free from the stuff we have to put up with when using a big name, out of touch, buggy platform.
twitter's stuffshow is proof that no matter how bad it gets people will never leave their collapsing platform, but will absolutely continue to moan about it and threaten moving to whatever alternate platform is being developed at the time, of which a few will do for a week then come crawling straight back once they realise nobody else moved over with them.

the real kicker is that we used to be able to do this - digg fell catastrophically when they began loving up which gave way to reddit, and now that reddit is loving up they're still standing strong as the alternate platforms that popped up return to obscurity.
always thought twitter was a piece of stuff, deleted my account back in 2012 and never looked back - honestly surprised it's lasted as long as it has. I can understand where your coming from though it's like nowdays every game has it's own facebook, twitter, reddit, steam forum, steam group, discord server, etc. it can be a headache trying to find support in just one of these many places when back in the day it was as simple as posting a question on the forum or contacting developers through a support ticket on their website. the only thing I'll say is that discord is pretty handy for real time discussion - I've been able to get a hold of friends and fellow developers there more easily than any of the above options - not saying it's perfect (far from it) but imo better than the other options out there

rocking these on the daily, originally bought them over a year ago for scooting cuz needed a pair of high tops for ankle protection. quite comfortable and durable

they make other variations of these as well if anyone is interested in this type of shoe/brand

Off Topic / Re: Best Meat
« on: August 04, 2023, 06:30:06 PM »

the meats i don't care for: turtle, gator, frog, certain types of fish - anything that tastes like muddy pond water really

not a big fan or pork either, probably has something to do with living down the road from a hog farm growing up and the owners would give us hog meat all the time for free - it was a nice gift but I grew tired of pork pretty quick lol. I rarely eat it anymore with the exception of the occasional bacon (BLT, on a burger, or with eggs and toast for breakfast)

Shrimp is excellent though it requires conditions:
  • Fully-grown shrimp. Smaller shrimp taste too much like fish and not enough like shrimp.
  • De-shelled for convenience. Shelled probably tastes better but I'm not eating crab. I'm eating shrimp.
  • Pan fried, oven baked, or grilled are ideal. Breading & deep frying is too much.
It's a demanding meat but if-done right it can taste better than most seafood; even lobster tail.
shrimp is excellent. the kind I get are large peeled and de-veined but with the tail end still on. I typically cook mine in a garlic butter sauce with a little salt and pepper. absolutely amazing with homemade roostertail sauce (horseradish and ketchup)
also, farm raised shrimp tastes awful compared to wild caught shrimp imo

man all the time lol

After paying for YouTube Music for a long time I realized that if you block ads it seems to function the same way as premium for the most part. Only downfall is you can't stream music while your phones locked. (So probably gonna keep paying lol)
You can use mozilla firefox w/ uBlock origin on your phone and still stream music while phone is locked, this is assuming you have an android phone not sure about stuffty iphone

Cool mod i just downloaded it. How did u get envmapping to work btw? its apparently a feature in ports dts exporter but all he said was that it 'doesnt work like it should'
thanks c:

I use blender 2.49b w/ the DTS exporter beta 3 for most stuff. For models without animations I will use Port's exporter for 2.74, but mostly i stick with the old skool tools since it's what im used to. in the beta 3 exporter there are environment mapping options - guessing it worked better before the removal of maps/terrain but it's still kinda neat to see/experiment around with
