Have no idea what zeronet even is, what happened with Infinichan is government censorship. The site was blamed for hosting the manifesto of one of those loser mass shooters, so Cloudflare dropped the support. Cause, you know, if you read a journal of a killer, YOU will become a killer yourself! (cause humans are totally blank slates to be influenced by the smallest thing)

And later it turned out it wasn't even posted on 8chan, but Cloudflare are a bunch of faggots who will never admit being wrong.

Maybe, but the carpathian basin isn't Siciliy or the Canary Islands or the coasts of Portugal. Those places usually have oceanic climates or are otherwise windy areas, which makes the large temperatures more easily bearable. And/or they have their society accostumed to the temperatures, such as mid-day siestas and work hours being mornings and nights. We don't have all of that. 34C in a city, with no wind movement nor any rain, where work hours are mostly in the middle of the day, can be very difficult. But we have had up to 41C last year.

I spent half a week waiting for a reply on two emails, only to find that Thunderbird did not send them in the first place, due to Gmail requiring a cookie login now, beyond the normal SMTP access. Also, it locks me out of my account every few months when my dynamic IP changes. Getting back is near impossible, only simple way is to keep changing my IP until it uses the same octets as before.

Gmail fucking sucks nowadays, but what other good email providers are there? The only ones I know of are cock.li, and I've seen someone use posteo.de and mailbox.org....

I recently installed a 2nd SSD in my machine, mainly for caching plus to store games on. Oddly, after I redirected every temp folder to that new SSD, my machine became significantly more responsive... after doing some benchmarks, turns out that the new drive scores up to 4x higher in random read tests, and 4x better in sequential writing. The low write speeds could be attributed to the old SSD being 90% full and also extremely fragmented (contrary to popular belief, filesystem fragmentation does matter a lot for SSDs, for writing at least). But not a 4x difference, and not in random reads.

So my next weekend project will be repartitioning my computer, and using the new SSD as a shared system + games drive. It actually is so fast that in certain benchmarks, it's the CPU that becomes the bottleneck.

The stores here are now making it mandatory to wear a face mask and gloves when entering. The only reason I even have face masks is because my parents sent me some, and my only gloves are winter gloves.

I'm half inclined to splurge on some kind of ultra detailed movie mask like Flick. How would they react in the store if I wore a Darth Vader outfit, or in a Predator mask, or as Jason Voorhees.

Where is that? Would be fucked if they forced that around here since the only 'mask' in the house is two of those builders dust masks I bought years ago.
Wouldn't mind owning a proper full-face gas mask, if I'm gonna wear anything not gonna bother with half-measures.

dust masks and disposable plastic gloves are exactly what is considered what you should be wearing (though the rubber gloves are preferred). More efficient masks are better, but the n95 masks are extremely uncomfortable with my glasses so I'm just not bothering with them right now.

I may have to though, but the thing is, the only way I can wear them is so they don't cover my face properly, meaning they are useless.
Also I can barely breath in these things. There's no place to went the air out, so after 3 breaths my face is already hot and my glasses are covered in steam.

The washing machine in my apartman is leaking... I have to take apart half the kitchen furniture to get access to it. Not fun.

Judging by how the floorboard cracks near the washing machine, I'm guessing that it's already bad enough that many tiles are rotten. Which means taking apart the ENTIRE kitchen at some point. Not fun.

I didn't even bother checking the kitchen because I've had the *floor* leaking under my washing machine - before even loading it. Basically I came home to find a puddle there. This has happened MANY times before. So I'm again thinking that the problem does not lie with me, but something in the building is just fucked between the floors.

I'll have to take the kitchen apart anyway though, just in case. Those squeaky tiles have been there for a decade already. For all I know, half the tiles in the corner may have rotten away without me knowing.

My watercooling setup had a broken pump a few months back, and since I fixed that, it got pretty noisy... I did not refill it properly and it was full of air bubbles, which made constant noise.

I finally got around to fixing it. Since it is a semi-AIO (it is possible to take it apart, refill it, and expand it), it had no dedicated reservoir, the radiator doubled as the reservoir. Had to take out the entire thing and twist and turn it around until I could hear the air bubbles not in the pump part, but in the radiator. Had to keep it running while doing all of that, and refill it while it was running too, to keep the air bubbles surfacing. I could still add about a 1dl of cooling water until it was full, so it was missing a lot.

I've gotten so used to the bubbly noise that I can barely believe how silent it became after doing this. I want to expand it to cover my CPU as well as having a dedicated pump and reservoir, but for that I need a new case since my current one predates the proliferation of consumer watercooling equipment. Even the current AIO fits in partially by accident.

I would never have thought that I'd start adding watercooling to my computer, but it makes a ludicrous difference in cooling performance even with just a single 120mm radiator.

Steams trading card thing only allows you to put cards on the market if you have their phone app installed. Without it it can only put cards up with 1 month delay, which basically makes them impossible to sell at market value.

Also banking applications started requiring 2FA for login here in Europe, and in a few months they'll change to needing biometric authentication for online transactions (using fingerprint scanner or face recognition in mobile phones). The bank I'm at could give you separate dongle keypads to get around 2FA to keep use their old banking app, but I have no idea what they'll do to comply with the new laws.

It's an EU law.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payment_Services_Directive
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strong_customer_authentication

>Article 4(30) defines "strong customer authentication" itself (as multi-factor authentication):
>an authentication based on the use of two or more elements categorised as knowledge (something only the user knows), possession (something only the user possesses) and inherence (something the user is) that are independent, in that the breach of one does not compromise the reliability of the others, and is designed in such a way as to protect the confidentiality of the authentication data

Windows XP was junk. I had to reinstall that shit every month before SP2; with SP2 it was only tolerable because the only other thing to compare it to was Win98SE which crashed every few hours.
Then by the mid-2000s it took a fucking eternity to install it because you needed to download 100+ fixes for it through windows update. I'm fucking glad it's dead, but applications using its api still bog down modern systems (for ex. Radeon drivers slow down after extended downtime if you use programs that create many GDI objects).

You can still do that without traveling to your bank, you just get an extra phone message. I agree that it is less convenient now because you have to add your phone number to every goddamn internet site ever.

What's really stupid is that this will not cut back on fraudulent transactions, because if someone steals your phone, he can still use your banking info which is all on the phone now, and the verification code is sent to your phone too, so it's just fucking stupid.

Tried updating my nvidia driver and it fucked my computer, was quickly blue screening it whenever I tried to load up.
Had to use a system restore to get it working right again.

To think this was all over some cheap game I had bought recently on a Steam sale that was constantly freezing.

Think the whole reason I haven't updated nvidia in a long time was because a driver update was giving everyone problems so long ago in the first place that holding off was the recommended solution.

Which one was the one that restored all the user made boards after the original 8chan shut down after one of the weekly school shootings? A lot of artists made their own boards there.

>Allegations of Jim Watkins arrested for CP production.
Not to defend the guy, but the reddit link says
>Watkins was producing pornography in Japan
Which is extremely broad and can mean anything from hardcore content to selling loli manga, since the media never makes any distinction between the two.

Also how did 8chan go from a public imageboard demonized because Internet Nazis post there anonymously, to a child pornography ring? What did I miss?

8ch.net was OG. Went down for months then restored as 8kun.top (same database).
Meanwhile the others were made. Those are the main splinters along with some others in the webring (see board list on any of the last three ones and it shows boards from the rest in the ring). julay is not called theguntretort or something after removing almost all the boards (with prior warning).

>but the reddit link says
(which I acknowledge is also hearsay)
>never makes distinction
True, however the article linked in there mentions hosting domains with certain names. They intentionally don't say what exactly it was and I don't know, but my guess is not drawn material.

>Also how did 8chan go from a public imageboard demonized because Internet Nazis post there anonymously, to a child pornography ring? What did I miss?
But Anon, it was originally demonized for hosting child modelling images before gamergate moved there!

The irony of course is it is most used now for Qanon boards and official posts, which was heavily about #SaveTheChildren from Satanic Communist child-eating adrenochrome-harvesting pedophile Democrats. I've been bullying Qanons for this past few week so this is just magical.

It's not pedo central. It used to have boards dedicated to child modelling content before gamergate which was then afterwards removed, but this isn't about that. It's about other services hosted by Jim Watkins's company, which appear to have been dedicated sites. However, I have no evidence beyond those links to take with a grain of salt.
>Was it just not moderated properly and got flooded with that content?
IIRC Hotwheels was a free speech idealist and believed it was a necessary evil to allow them equal rights to the platform. Free speech, no exceptions. They were boards he was able to delete.
He has since denounced that belief and hasn't been involved with the site since 2016 or so.

There has been a CP spammer on the Q boards but those get deleted after an hour or so.

I tune that out since it has been done since fucking forever. Even James Bond movies make poor out of place references to older Bond movies. In the 00s every other game made a reference to Lord of Rings or attacking giant enemy crabs on their weak spot, and Transformers comics got to the point that they are referencing how much the fanbase is fed up with references to the 1986 movie.
If the story itself is boring as shit, the references won't matter anyway.

The trans stuff however comes completely out of the blue and spirals down into incessant rambling that is out of place with the rest of the story and feels more like propaganda (how, exactly, do you have sex as a woman one day and then sex as a man? Do you sew back on the cock you cut off?). Also it is written in a way that makes it look very creepy; like, the word for word defense that a real life child molester would use.

Plus you can't read the news or turn the TV on or play a video game without seeing some more news about transsexual rights being offended or some other PC bullshit. That's what really bothers me, ultimately.
