>>426946 It made the news that due to the closing of industrial production, some cities could see the mountains they are close to, for the first time in decades. I think it was with towns near the Himalayas.
It goes like this: you post a photo of some part of the world, and others will try and guess the country. Nature is preferable, but cities are okay, I guess. If 5 posts get it wrong, someone else can post another photo.
Naturally, I'll go first. Hint: it's somewhere in Europe.
>>427054 all pads will develop drifting since they all use the same technology. You might be better off trying to repair it. There are guides on youtube. Worst case is you can get a spare part and solder it over.
>>427056 Some might develop drifting sooner than others or prove to be more sturdy, that's why I was asking for a recommendation. I've actually got the alcohol and try to clean them out but don't have a soldering gun.
>>427057 Unfortunately I can't help you there, I've only used the xbox controllers for my PC for a long time now.
As far as I know all controllers (except for some old Sega ones) use standard potentiometers, so they'll all go to shit eventually. If one develops drifting later, it's most likely down to the controller seeing less use - I never got any drifting despite sticking to the same pad for 6-7 years, but I did not use the analog pad much either. That's why I recommend you get some OEM parts from china and solder them over. I had a similar problem with a mouse wheel (they also use potentiometers), and getting replacement parts extended its life nearly tenfold.
I appreciate Liru and all she has done to make imageboards, nay... LIFE so fantastic for the world. I just can't imagine what my life would be like without her. Probably worse and for that, I am eternally grateful. Thank You.
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've been having odd vivid dreams the past few nights (though don't really remember them in the day beyond the fact they were strangely intense). Put it down to the unnaturally hot weather we've having.
