>418054 As much as I am happy about tumblr tanking, what alternative is there for NSFW art? - deviantart only allows nudity, not porno - pixiv requires censoring (for at least the title pic), they have no RSS feeds - twitter compresses the shit out of all image files, uses random unidentifiable filenames, and most people flood it with reposts - it's not a gallery/blog, is what I'm saying. - newsgrounds allows porno but not loli. no RSS
My last one was something that could make a decent fanfiction. It was a mashup of Prometheus, Avengers, and Pacific Rim. Basically, it is the future, and anti-gravity vehicles are the norm. The dream starts somewhere far away, where an Architect was revived from deep sleep. He vows to destroy mankind, his creation, because we are not perfect. He says all that telepathically, due to his vocal chords being cut. He calls his fellow architects, and they get together a fleet of spaceships to fly to Earth and destroy it. I am one of the few humans who learn of this first (forgot how), and I learn hat while at a picnic with a larger group of people, in a forest. After seeing the ships approach and leveling the forest, I grab the nearest speeder bike (junk, but operational and defies gravity!) and ride to my home. After I get there, I tell everyone the news (they are my friends in the dream, despite being complete strangers now that I look back). So, from the windows of the apartment, we see the Architect ships (different than the ones from Prometheus) slowly destroy the city. The human race then decides to quickly go through with a defense program. To fight monsters, we will create monsters. Very quickly. But instead of giants robots, we use magical bullshit science to make superheroes out of people. Those superheroes would make a defense team strong enough to defeat all the asshole creator aliens. The plan is successful, and my dream ends with the first batch of superheroes testing their new powers before going to fight the Architects. I also remember there being one lizard girl testing her freeze powers and looking happy after seeing they worked.
Anything you seen in your sleep worthy of talking about?
I was walking the roads near an old house I use to live at. It's a dusty and rocky road that is stupidly steep. And a friend that I stopped hanging with years ago is walking with me and he is in a legit Guts cosplay, but has a dinky katana instead of that massive sword. We pass by a neighbor's house and he pops out with a bunch of pets. We decide to just lay on the road and pet the adorable animals instead of walking any futher. Also, the neighbor looked a lot like Caddicarus.
I had a dream last night that I was on a stage and HAD to sing a song or else, so I picked one and sang as best I could. I knew I was dreaming because I was like "I'll look it up on Youtube when I wake up," but when I did I couldn't remember what song it was. It's been bugging me all day.
>417774 >Besides, isn't the whole point of using an invite-based system to let people vet each other before giving them an invite? Besides, it's not like spammers have a whole range of tools being made for them to circumvent automated checks. Why else do you think we don't bother with CAPTCHA here? $0.50 USD for 1000 human-performed CAPTCHA solves last time I checked.
>417828 I think most people just forgot about this site. The site being semi-broken for a few years probably didn't help, and neither does the fact that most people browse from mobiles (we don't have a mobile layout yet).
plus4chan will closeenter read-only mode 1/1/2018 is on double-secret probation
No excuses, no speeches, announcement only, final destination.
I have been approached by someone who is not only going to fix the code, but will also help me handle at least some of the day-to-day administration. This is pro bono so I don't have a date for when it will be complete, but at that time we will do a soft-relaunch with the updated software. Until that time, +4 will remain open unless/till we get a nastyspam, and then it will go read-only either for a short time or until improvements are complete.
For when read-only mode kicks in, here are some temporary refugee** locations set up by others:
>417450 The current board system doesn't actually purge old threads due to a bug, so everything that was posted on this board. Including some threads which, for some reason, are not in the db but their static htmls still exist. Images included. In fact I think it has a lot of deleted images there too, based on the file count.
Moose said that he may have an archive of the old site. I don't know anything further than that.
Ever since I gave Tiki advice on getting a new desktop, I've been wanting to share my experience with how my own build went, and I figure I ought to do that already.
I think I got a pretty solid design here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZWHvRB Portability since I want to lug it between my parent's houses, decent in most areas of performance, very solid power supply, damage resistant motherboard. Unfortunately I hadn't ordered anything online before, and asked my mom for help. After some confusion with credit cards, we ended up going with a different case, this one to be exact: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-sstps07b
Don't know how well my first choice would have done, but I'm having some issues with the one I went with. There's two fans on the case, but the connectors won't hook up directly to the power supply, and the motherboard only has one fan connector. This leads to some overheating problems that aren't helped be the generally cramped nature of the case of the thick cables used the power supply taking up so much space - thankfully most of them were taken out since it's modular, but that's probably why they're so thick. Not to mention the door over the intake that I need to remember to open whenever I set the computer down.
Not as bad as long as I don't run too much as once, brush the dust off the intake filters and keep the door over it open. I'll have to see if removing the dust lets me get past that one level of Quantum Conundrum (Road to higher Learning) that's been making my machine crash by the time I reach the end. Other than that, performance it pretty good. Windows 8 in nicer than Vista but I don't like what it's done to Search, I like having the pane and being able to use advanced search without going to a separate window. Backing things up weekly to the other hard drive is nice.
In addition to looking for a way to hook up both fans, I'll want to see if I can put the solid state hard drive in a removable case and just move that between similarly built machines instead of moving the whole machine around.
