Considering Fatchan's jschan Anonymous 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:14:24 No.10737 [Reply]
LynxChan had its advantages, but during the short time that Fatchan was up I saw some things I really liked. It also seems to have garnered good reviews from those anons who posted on it. The questions I'm now asking are: >Is jschan suitable for use yet? jschan's repository README contains a warning that it isn't production-ready. Development is likely to be wilder, upgrades rockier, and behavioral edges less well-understood. I recall that Fatchan also had its share of attacks and the countermeasures seemed to strike a nice balance between being effective and preserving anon quality of life. >How expensive is jschan to run? By "expensive" I mean how CPU intensive, how memory-intensive, and how disk-intensive is it compared to LynxChan? Only someone with experience running both would be able to comment, but we can hope such a person exists. >What options exist to migrate content from LynxChan to jschan? A supported migration path is essential; direct database-to-database transfer would be ideal. Has anyone else migrated content from a LynxChan instance to a jschan instance and if so, how did it go? >Will jschan continue to be developed and for how long? Tom has said that he plans to keep actively developing jschan but given his recent force-feeding of blackpills I'd like to know his thoughts on how long he'll be committing to the software as its maintainer. Open-source projects can in theory be taken over if the original maintainer abandons them but this transition only sometimes goes well. I also see no pull requests having been made on jschan so I don't know how Tom runs his ship compared to, say, Stephen Lynx. >What do our board owners think of switching to jschan? Our board owners love their custom CSS; switching over to jschan is likely to mean they need to adjust their CSS yet again in a more radical way than a normal LynxChan upgrade.

How popular is rock with young people nowadays? I imagine it's kind of a niche thing nowadays. I went to school back when its glory days were over, but it still seemed to be the music of choice for adolescent males. I might dislike the metalcore music that was popular then, but at least it wasn't rap.

I've never used Haiku, but I agree. Linux is a hacker kernel that has been hacked into having a decent normalfag user experience.

Like you say, Linux is duct-taped but I don't even notice to be honest. >no thumbnails in their file pickers Mine are fine. My issue is no shortcut option for making symlinks via GUI. I wonder if ReactOS is going anywhere, or if it's too eternally outdated to ever replace Windows 10 as a daily driver.

YouTube was once also part of the old innocent, creative and fun internet when at worst people would make a video in the hopes of it getting viral.

The in-spot for appreciation of Jazz and its multiple off-shots, chiefly among them the flamboyant and ever-shifting Fusion genre along with some House and its evolution into Nü-Jazz. Pieces and solo-ing samples along with actual tiny bits of history (usually) will be served once in a while for performer context. These genres usually have the particularity that the bands are very temporal and/or have members with extensive side works so i will probably post the line-ups too in the webm dumps. Also fusion albums move very closely in the border of jazz, rock and funk so it won't be rare to post music that could very well fit into other genres, especially progressive rock. Check our mother thread /musicprod/ as well for more discussion: >>42
I was supposed to make this post earlier but i wanted to wait specifically on a March 21 to commemorate the birthday of what is, in my humble opinion after having heard plenty of music, the most advanced electric guitarist to have ever lived Two years ago was the date but procrastination impeded me, then one year ago i had most of it but J.W got the spam and today there's no limits other than never having completed it fully. I might wind some things and rush a bit, along with the topic being a bit too leaned on the Hard Rock side, but i want to express my fondness to this particular individual whom i never met but had in its scarce bio, but rich hearsay, the example of a man who lived life like not many did: In relative NEETdom, taking his careful and methodical time with his hobbies and reaching a technical pinnacle still seen as unreachable to this day, and without harming anything or anyone to the point of being considered a genuinely good person by most people who met him. If there ever was a kind of superior entity living among us in contemporary times, be it an "angel" or an "alien", this guy surely was one.
I don't really know anything about the genre, but I've loved this piece ever since I heard it.

It's ok, but like a lot of dos games, it doesn't have enough depth to keep me interested for long. I love DOS games, but I'm more into strategy games and the old-school FPS games as far as those are concerned. Princess Maker 2 was the last one I gave a shot, and I surprisingly enjoyed that one. The music is fantastic, and the artwork is surprisingly nice too. I do remember finding The Lost Vikings curious when I was younger and checking out the Super Nintendo version in that it was a Blizzard game from the pre-WarCraft days. But as far as puzzle games go, I much prefer the tile-matching kind to action platformers.

>>872 As an update on the MiSTer, I got my wi-fi working, along with several other cores (like the Atari 2600 and unofficial Intellivision core). It turns out that after adding your information for the wi-fi connection, an underscore is added to the name of the text file and so it's unrecognizable to the system unless you remove it. Next up I'd like to try getting DOS games working. The process seems like a laborious pain in the neck from the little I've looked at it though. I've been having fun playing Atari 2600 and arcade games in particular. Too bad I don't have paddle controllers. It's nice knowing that since this project is open source, it should only be increasing in accuracy and adding more features with time. The lack of save states are the biggest gripe for me right now. Once they start to add them to cores, it'll probably be my go-to choice for playing console games. Custom case options would be nice too.

I have no interest in modern games, mostly I just play games from the 2000s and early 2010s. I've never owned a Sony console before but i bought a PS2 a few weeks ago, I might buy a PS1 too cause I found a cheap one.

But the last generation of consoles that I have any interest whatsoever in was the sixth gen. For me the third and fourth generations are the sweet spot for console games, with PC games starting to really get good in the early '90s and declining in the 2000s. I never had a PS2 back in the day, but I played through Vice City a few years ago and enjoyed it. I remember how popular it was when it came out but never had a chance to play I was older. In some ways I feel like I missed out being a GameCube kid, but in other ways I don't regret it at all.

Looks like none of the images in the catalog work. Let's get a fresh thread in here, focused on computers! I don't have pictures at the moment to share, but I got lucky today and picked up a nice big beige computer case. I'm assembling a new personal computer from parts that I got deals on, found in the junk heap, or that I was given by friends. So, I guess it's not really a /retro/ computer, but it will be in a /retro/ case, and I plan to get an adapter which will let me use a 3.5" floppy disk drive in there. The adapter plugs into the floppy pins, and presents a USB interface to the motherboard. That adapter is under $10 USD. In fact, I've seen an adapter card that will do the same but for 5.25" floppy disk drives. So, when I have more money, I should be able to have not only a 3.5" FDD, but a 5.25" FDD in my system, running alongside new solid state drives, Blu-Ray disc drives, and of course a few regular hard drives. It should be pretty fun. Again, no pictures yet but I will share with you guys when I can. For now I'll just post one from my collection. What have you guys been up to?

To that end, I was wondering if anyone knew or had the time to look up and monitor which players have already had a customized model or face. I say this as we could very easily solve many more "generic" names by using pre-existing assets.

Post here whenever you finished watching an anime. I'm very new to it so I don't think I could fit on /animu/, less /a/, so I figured I may make a thread here. Watched pic related recently, it was very neat but I didn't like the ending a lot, seems like the rewards Chihiro got were too given at the palm of her hand there. Other than that it was pretty neat and reminded me to care about your friends.

The only problem is, since me & my family moved out (due to getting a new home in the sub-urbs that is both near to a preschool for me and better transport system for my parents), the area has been developed, and the old charm is totally gone. a pity. it's a place that's pretty /comfy/ (and i bet pretty affordable) for people seeking a place to stay which is near or within forested area, and away from constant street noises. back to topic: personally i won't say the boonies "weren't be boring if you 'so-and-so'".

I'd suggest Genshiken, laid back anime about a collage otaku circle, lots of refrences and comfy to watch, then Great Teacher Onizuka, Lucky star, and Bakemonogatari, maybe get a version with voice actors commentary.

greetings anons. newfag christbro here. i just read 12 rules for life by jordan peterson. i know its a meme book and all that, i know that a lot of people doubt he's even christian but he got me reading the bible and now im here. my favourite parts in 12 rules was when he wrote about the bible from a symbolic /psychological perspective. can you guys recommend any books like that? im looking specifically for books that go into the symbolism or jungian takes of the bible.
>>38 >2020 >Still believing the gommunists are gonna take over the world
>>33 Woah Anon, that mysticism section is badly out of order. I made the mistake of a bad reading order much to the detriment of my soul. Start off with Teresa of Avila. Here anon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKXOFOSM4zo , this audio version is quite good. It will serve as a primer. After that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKXcKnGuwrg&list=PLGLhrnM7t_JOqaJL7ajJOilRg1hqjKntz&index=4&t=4031s will serve as a good read. My only warning here is to not fall into the temptation of reading into Divine will or differentiating it from chance. Simply be at peace with it. "Who can know the mind of God? Who can fathom its depths?" From there, I would chose some more Teresa of Avila, but I have been supplementing my mystical practices with sources from other traditions-- Buddhism, Stoicism, Hinduism, etc. One must be very careful with this, so it is probably better to stay with the Saints. Just to drive in a second time how bad this list is: Dark Night of the Soul is the second part of The Ascent of Mount Carmel. If you picked up The Ascent it would be bad enough, but starting with the Dark Night would be agonizing and unusable.
>>318 If you're awake to symbolism and layered meaning, just keep reading the Bible and things will jump out at you. Often something will appear irrelevant or out of place or contradictory to worldly eyes, and these things are very interesting to dissect and discuss. Me, I was thrown off almost immediately in Genesis 1:26 when God says "Let us make man in our image and likeness..." Who is us? Does this point to the Trinity? I'd be satisfied with that explanation, but I couldn't recall any other time when God uses this plural phrasing. He refers to Himself singularly when He appears to Abraham and to Moses. Is He talking to the angels? Angels have a different image and likeness than man, right? Men don't have wings and wheels and multitudes of eyes. Is it just an idiosyncrasy of Hebrew or an artifact of translation? IDK, maybe someone with mastery of the language can pick this one up. I think this is an important thing to get right because wrong interpretations can lead to things like that whole feminist cult in Korea that worships two Gods, male and female, claiming the patriarchy has suppressed knowledge of the divine feminine.

Baptist Minister Thanks Joe Biden for Funding Planned Parenthood, Calls Abortion a “Sacred Decision” Anonymous 01/30/2021 (Sat) 19:25:28 No.407 [Reply]
A Baptist minister who works as an abortion activist praised President Joe Biden this week for forcing American taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups. The Rev. Katey Zeh, CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, told the Huffington Post that protecting “choice” is a moral issue and one that Biden has a responsibility to support. “As people of faith who support reproductive freedom, we believe that everyone has the capacity to make sacred decisions about their bodies, lives, families and futures,” Zeh told the news outlet. “Any attempt to control, restrict or interfere with that decision is reproductive oppression.” She thanked Biden for rescinding the Mexico City Policy, a pro-life rule President Donald Trump put in place to defund the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which kills babies in abortions around the world and lobbies to legalize abortions in pro-life countries. Biden’s order on Thursday will restore millions of taxpayer dollars to the billion-dollar abortion industry. Planned Parenthood and MSI Reproductive Choices (formerly Marie Stopes International) are two recipients of international aid funding, and they abort millions of unborn babies across the world every year. https://www.lifenews.com/2021/01/29/baptist-minister-thanks-joe-biden-for-funding-planned-parenthood-calls-abortion-a-sacred-decision/

1980's Nostalgia General CaesarDude 01/05/2020 (Sun) 21:20:39 No.274 [Reply] [Last]
Alright, I decided to expand the scope of this board a little more and include a containment thread for 80's nostalgia. I mainly created this board to serve as both a successor to the old /y2k/ board, which was my favorite board on 8chan, and also expand the scope to include 90's nostalgia too, but after checking on this board, I noticed someone mentioning 80's nostalgia and I decided I would do something about it. I personally don't care that much for 80's pop culture aside from the music and some of the old edgy anime, but 80's nostalgia did become a thing in the 2000's and I can see why others like the whole 80's style, so I'll allow it as long as it's mainly kept to this thread.

Anons, it's high time to get right with God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Things are happening quickly. Obey the gospel and you shall be saved! “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized eberry one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” - Acts 2:38-39 The only thing that will matter 10000 years from now is whether or not you have obeyed the Lord Jesus Christ.
A human being is not God. Jesus, the son of Mary - peace be upon him - is the messenger of God, but not God himself. In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful. 1. Say, “He is God, the One. 2. God, the Absolute. 3. He begets not, nor was He begotten. 4. And there is none comparable to Him.”
>>4092 Why wood an Islamist be here claiming anything about Jesus? Jesus isn't just a good man, or a prophet. He claimed repeatedly and clearly to be God Himself. This is why the Jews had him murdered. Liar, Lunatic, or LORD; pick only one, friend.
>>4103 Sorry /comfy/, I didn't check first and just assumed this was /islam/ lecturing /christian/ . For my part I'll stop now.
>>4101 Based and Amen.
>>4101 You are following Saul, not Jesus. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was sent with the miraculous Qur'an to teach the world the true way to God. This is a book of guidance for those who fear Him. >>4103 Muslims are closer to Jesus than Christians. We pray in the same manner as him, we dress like him and look like him. Jesus only claims to be God according to the Gospel of John; the other sources mention no such thing. In fact, Jesus came to teach the same message that all prophets before him came to teach - peace be upon them all: That there is no god except the One God, and to worship Him alone. Christians however worship others beside God.

But one thing's certain 'repent forever' isn't a thing. Just ask your father friend, I'm sure he knows.
"You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments."

Also, I do apologize for the lack of stuff, I'm trying to make the board more colorful but just bear with me for a while longer.

>>460 >In the amount of work it takes to learn one thing correctly by input you could have learned two things completely incorrectly any other way and corrected. What textbookfags don't understand is that you learn a lot by inputting that you won't learn anywhere else. Early outputters make a lot more mistakes than they realize - not just grammatically, but in their overall intonation, cadence, pronunciation, filler usage, and slightly awkward ways of phrasing things that are technically grammatically correct but still don't sound like how a native would say it. When inputters eventually start practicing output, they do a better job of picking up on these little subtleties which make them sound more native, stuff that textbookfags don't even know about. It's always obvious whether or not somebody has put in the time to immerse just by listening to them speak Japanese.
>>461 It's not like people who study don't practice. If there are things that you can only learn from exposure, then people who use the normal method will still learn it, and for everything else they will also learn it better. Only inputters deliberately deny themselves tools. Even if inputters are better at output when they start then other people are when they start, they wait so long to start that everyone else makes progress faster. Again, the input method takes so many hours of work and delays learning normal skills that you could learn everything twice with the same amount of work-time. And you don't even have to do that because you're greatly overstating the amount that bad habits pop-up and effect people.
>>462 One misconception that you seem to have is that you think inputters start off doing nothing but immersion from day one. Almost nobody does that. Most of us start off reading Tae Kim, taking classes, doing Genki textbook exercises, learning about copula and genetives and listening to Japanesepod101 podcasts, and all that good old noob stuff. Then, at some point or another, we discover Antimoon and AJATT and MIA, try out the input-based approach, and realize that immersion and i+1 sentence mining lead to much faster progress than continuing to do textbook shit after overcoming the beginner level. >Even if inputters are better at output when they start then other people are when they start, they wait so long to start that everyone else makes progress faster. Again, the input method takes so many hours of work and delays learning normal skills that you could learn everything twice with the same amount of work-time. Getting massive amounts of input is required for learning a language to fluency. You might be able to speed the process up a little bit by doing exercises, but getting thousands of hours of input is still a hard requirement. There's no shortcut here. There's no magical textbook or Duolingo exercise that you can do to go from zero to fluency without putting in shitloads of time actually exposing yourself to the reality of a language. These aren't programming languages; they're human languages, highly specific and abitrary in tens of thousands of little ways. No textbook could possibly hold all the information you need to get good.>>462
>>262 >>389 When it comes to the copular の, I think it's obvious (and not even controversial) that の can act as a stand-in the copula in certain situations, i.e. those where it would make sense to replace it with だった or である. So 子供の時 -> 子供だった時 works and is an example of the copular の, while 海の写真 -> 海だった写真 doesn't work so it isn't a copular の. 普通の人 -> 普通である人 works, so it's also copular の. Does that mean that の is actually a verb? No, I think that's just overcomplicating things. And the Japanese generally don't regard it as being a verb either, so I'd rather not go out of my way to think of の in different terms than actual native speakers of the language do. Also, it can be argued that the non-copular usages of の also act as a stand-in for other verbs besides the copula, e.g., 海の写真 -> 海[が写っている]写真. In both the copular and the genitive case, の acts as a stand-in for "hidden" verbs which relate the two nouns together. の is a particle that connects nouns together just because it can be replaced with verbs and still make sense doesn't mean that it's a verb in and of itself. It can't be used to end sentences like verbs can either which is another reason not to categorize it that way. I also think it's normal for people to stop consciously relating の to words like "copula" and "genitive" as time goes on, since you can just rely on your fluency in the language to understand things instead of parsing everything through the lens of English-based grammatical descriptions which are meant to apply to very broad concepts across all the languages in the world, and don't come close to capturing the specifics of the Japanese language. At some point, it's better to stop thinking of Japanese in English terms and start thinking of it in terms of itself. (Also, の definitely has more than 3 use categories, beyond the copula, nominalization, and genetive case. For instance, it also acts as a stand in for が sometimes, as in 興味のない話 and 日本語の不自由な外人さん. I also think that the use of の as a sentence-ending particle to express curiosity or add emphasis should be regarded as a use separate from the usual nominalization case, since it carries an emotional connotation whereas the other uses are emotionally neutral.)
>>466 It's not just that it alternates with other forms of the copula, it's that の can take a subject and therefore must be a verb(al predicate). It also is in allomorphic distribution with な. There are a whole host of historical reasons that it should be considered a form of the copula, i.e. it has been around in this function for longer than な and it was probably a form of the copula first before the genitive particle arose.
