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.

I learned about it maybe ten years ago. I didn't know about the blinkenlights joke (nor the significance of towel (or .nl, come to think of it)). I just remember thinking it was a really comfy name, I imagined a midnight cityscape and all those windows with their lights on. It was nice.

Live in a place where white is the most prominent, then other races, then black people being the least common. And now when I happen to see a black person in the street or on internet often the memories of all the racist spam and memes that are everywhere are what pops into my head.
Not even thinking it about the person just being reminded and have recollections all pop-up unbidden.
