#1192208 What's on your mind?

Politicians have fucked the world up.
After the "Tower of Babel" fell the different peoples all gravitated to their own kind.
Fucking Politicians have thrown us all together again.

Why the heck has hat been highlighted ?

Because those 3 lines have big fat "[ color=#1d2129 ]" tags. You copy/pasted from somewhere that had them without realising, most likely. (I've done it too.)

Edit: Ok, who's been fucking around with the editor this time? Five attempts to get it to include a blank line after the quote, including three that have never been needed on this site before, and STILL don't fucking work! Put it back how it was, and leave shit alone unless it's broken.

Nah it's more fun to fuck with you.

Oh for sure it's spam.  But there's no link so I thought I'd let you all have some fun.

#1191598 Spam of late

Posted by Nich... on 15 May 2017 - 02:31 AM

Thanks for being patient with the recent influx of spam in the past couple of weeks.  I'm trying to keep a frequent eye on it to remove it, but sometimes I like to go and watch Guardians of the Galaxy or sleep.


We're looking into the best way to handle it without being too punitive to potential new users who might actually stumble upon this place and want to stay.

The forum uses a javascript rich text editing/reply field.  There have been issues with some browsers, eg some versions of IE.


As Rybags mentioned, the top left icon in the display fields disables this JS and dumps you back onto a legacy version that does plaintext.


Assuming this is the issue you're having, anyway.

SA is going to save itself by using gas power?  Isn't, uh, the price on that going stupid?  In which case I don't know how they hope to bring costs down.

#1189767 So far so good...

Total sidebar, but back when I used to still occasionally swim competitively, I'd be able to get off one or two sprints before I had to retire for the rest of the day with a migraine and inability to walk properly.  If that's the level I should be pushing myself all the time if trying to better myself, then I'm even more put off* :D  Even HIIT by sprinting up and down a steep hill didn't wear me out physically and mentally as much as effectively doing HIIT in water.




*I don't really experience endorphin rushes or whatever else people do to enjoy exercise.  The only thing that keeps me doing it (or, more often than not, not doing it) is pure force of will.  It all gets pretty unpleasant pretty quickly, and is mostly just me trying to work out if I've done enough to stop yet.

Great, now you went and got rybags all riled up about kids these days and how they don't appreciate the nice timeless Fisher Price aesthetic XP had.


You also didn't tell us why you don't like it, so yeah, maybe you should've dumped it into the green room.

I'd suggest having a break from gaming, go outside, find some pokemon!


pokemon go is fucking disgraceful



What makes you say that?

IMO it gives a modern "gaming age" reason to go on a nice 10km stroll with friends.


I havent seen anything disgraceful about it yet.

Tons of idiots not looking UP enough while walking, but that goes for ANY portable gaming.... or facebook....


It is my opinion, but it's overhyped and I know you've probably heard this but everyone I know who plays pokemon go just became "zombies", I get into ingress though, that was really fun



I know its your opinion, that's why I was asking :P

Interestingly, I actually didn't see ANY hype. It was well regarded and people got excited about its release, but no Hype at all (assuming you're using the 'gaming' term of hype, talking a product up before its release).

I've had quite the opposite experience too with players. 10's of new people to talk to every night, all it takes is a trip to the park at 10pm and its packed with new people. We go for walks, laugh, stop at new places for lunch or midnight snacks.


Clearly its different experience; but before PoGo came out, about the only thing people I knew wanted to do at night was sit in a house staring at a screen.

While there's still a screen involved, at least now we're trekking the neighborhood and actually talking to each other face to face :D


Maybe its your 'friends' who are bringing you down? between those comments, and your lazy\bored comments in the other thread, maybe no one out there is pushing you hard enough to evolve yourself a bit further in life (I'm so punny! but making a serious point...)


I have friends? and people are pushing me hard enough, but I have way more fun/enjoyment when I am doing something that gets my brain thinking and working like playing a puzzle game, or problem solving...none of which exist in pokemon go



It is my opinion, but it's overhyped and I know you've probably heard this but everyone I know who plays pokemon go just became "zombies", I get into ingress though, that was really fun




They're more or less the same game ya yutz.


No, the biggest difference is that ingress was so much better



Orienteering is a very real skill.


Seeing 10~20 'stops' and having to successfully plan a route, time drink breaks\public toilets, and manage people of different social skills and fitness levels IS a puzzle game.

Not to mention, if the "socialising" part is so damn easy, this shoudl leave your mind free to DO all that planning, designing and deep thinking you "find fun"


As for brain training type stuff, I know what you mean, and I'm of the same mind set.


That's why I like PoGo so much. I can walk, be considered social, while in my own head I've just nutted out 2 arduino code problems, and a future upgrade path for my home server.

Which saves a lot of planning time ONCE you get home!


also, don't be 'that guy' everyone has friends.

Even if they're unhealthy-relationships which you'll eventually grow apart from, they're still there.

I was "that guy"; no one likes "that guy", because he really doesn't exist; he's just being a downer.


I don't like to be social, people are just bad in general...'tis why I sit in a dark room 24/7...and the "no friends" thing was a joke man, I do have friends, irl and over the internet, but I only really interact with the internet friends



No, the biggest difference is that ingress was so much better

Wow, such an objective observation. SonOfNoddy coming good with all the facts and details.


Damn right, I can point out all the important differences between other games as well!


Big walls of quoteblocks are fun.

What cheap backup are you getting from a DVDRW? Anything small enough to fit on a DVD is small enough to put in the cloud. Anything bigger than one DVD goes into the cloud too, or onto a HDD or flash drive.

If you want a 1TB HDD just for backups, a black is a waste.

The last phone I bought - a Nokia 3210 or something - was from them. Ordered online, picked it up because I was in Sydney on holidays.

Never dealt with them afterwards, but that was painless.
