I've been seeing a girl for a few months now, and I haven't been able to see her in person for a few weeks because of life stuff. We have a date coming up, so I decided to learn a little about floral arrangement and make her a bouquet (it's in a vase for now, but I'm gonna wrap them up to deliver them).

I've never done anything like this before. How'd I do? Are my flower choices alright? Colors good? Any tips for the future?

Sister: "Your family?"

@Velveteen I just looked it up because I decided I needed one and they're $350 so I need one significantly less than I initially thought.

My emotional support solitaire app is doing a mini game where I earn cookies when I win levels and I can feed them to a baby fox to help her grow, it’s like the developers had a focus group on how to market the game to me specifically

This has big Tamagotchi vibes 💜

America Ferrera's "Barbie" monologue was initially praised for expressing the frustrations of being a woman, and then slammed for its oversimplification of feminism. Now, the actress is defending the speech in an interview with the New York Times. Here's the full interview (may be paywalled); we'll link a free-to-read summary from TODAY in the comments. What do you think of the controversy?

@ADHDefy@easymode.im avatar

@CultureDesk I have really only just started reading about Feminism and actually learning what it's all about in the last couple of years, so I'm no where near the most qualified to weigh in on this; but as a viewer, I found the monolgue very moving. It stuck with me even after the movie ended, and I think it very much fit into the film thematically, so it wasn't just like a random political statement or something. It was a poignant and heartfelt expression of the character's frusteration with how she is viewed by the world and expected to behave. I think the fact that it resonated with so many women to garner the praise it got initially is very telling.

Wow, is incredible. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is an old game that is pretty hard to get running these days. Even on modern versions of Windows, it has it's issues. A few months ago, I struggled to get it running with Wine, Proton, etc. It was not playble at all.

Tonight I just made a gaming bottle, set it to "Windows 7" compatibility mode, and installed the game. It launched immediately and runs with basically no issues (a couple small framedrops during the heavy scene transitions in the tutorial level). This is really impressive.

I will have to do some more experimentation, but might be the place to play old games now. 0.o

ADHDefy,
@ADHDefy@easymode.im avatar

@roggmatz I didn't even need one, really. I just installed bottles, created a new bottle, went into the Bottle settings and changed compatibility from Windows 10 to Windows 7, then ran the set up exe with Bottles. That was it, it just worked. It's got a pretty intuitive UI.

Here are user docs for it: https://docs.usebottles.com

I didn't expect Buddy Daddies to have such a great ending. 😭🤧

I thought there would be a season 2 to look forward to, but it really seems like they kept it to 12 solid episodes with a satisfying conclusion. I didn't really get "hooked" until 3 or 4 episodes in, but I'm really glad I stuck with it. In the early episodes, it was hard for me to get past the fact that they were trying to make two seemingly remorseless contract killers sympathetic leads. Every "aww" was followed by a, "... oh, right, they kill people for money and they don't think twice about it." lol BUT the more they explore it, the more it all starts to come together and it works. The show kind of expects you to see something more in these guys that they don't even see in themselves, and it pays off. Def one of the best 2023 , IMO, I slept on it for too long.

It ends with some moderately Christmasy episodes, so if X-Mas is your jam and you want a really solid short anime series to watch that is seasonally relevant and somehow manages to blend very sweet, wholesome comedy with stylized hyperviolence, then I would recommend Buddy Daddies. lol It's a weird dynamic, but it works.

What a year it's been. I know that it's not quite over, but as we get closer to the new year, I can't help but spend more time reflecting. My life doesn't look too terribly different from the outside compared to this time last year, but it's a completely different experience inside.

I have learned so much about myself and life. I've pushed back on my negative core beliefs, I've challenged some of my most steadfast perceptions, and I've never been so connected to my emotions in all my life. I've learned new ways to express myself and communicate. I've made difficult decisions, and confronted fear and heart break, and most amazingly of all, I read multiple books! Like... what?!

I was in a really bad place for a while there, and while I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go, I feel like I have begun forming a really solid foundation for a happy life. I am finding every week that I'm a little kinder to myself, I'm discovering more of my joy and passion, my mask is coming off, my wounds are healing, and I'm that much more hopeful. I'm so, so grateful for all of the support I've had that allowed me to take these strides.

This coming year, I hope to work on my circumstances. This year was all about reclaiming my independence and reacquainting me with myself, so next year will be about connecting. I want to find meaningful employment, to begin building a life of purpose, to connect with more people and spend more quality time with those that I care about, to play some live music again, to do some volunteering, maybe go on a date or two, make some new friends, maybe try out some ADHD meds, and maybe even spend a little more time in nature.

The last few days, I have been overwhelmed with a mix of excitement, and doubt, and gratitude, and anxiety, and warmth, and loneliness, and love. I kinda feel like I might explode, but I am living into it because it wasn't all that long ago that I had trouble feeling anything at all. It's really beautiful, and this has been the happiest holiday season I've had in a long time.

Honestly, this probably should have been a journal entry and not a social media post, and maybe parts of it didn't make a whole lot of sense, but there's something cathartic about putting a message out into the world, you know? So thank you for reading. In the spirit of connecting: what are you looking forward to in 2024? What do you hope to accomplish? What did you get from 2023? I'd love to hear about it. 🙂

Hey , I have an RTX 2070 Super and since I'm a Linux gamer 98% of the time, I've been thinking about going team red. I found a dude who might be down to trade me a Radeon VII for my 2070S... is that a good deal or a bad deal?

Linux compatibility should be way better, and it seems like performance is comparable, but idk about raytracing performance and I've heard the R VII can be pretty loud.

Opinions? Advice?

Anyone here use the Pocket 2+?

I'm trying to find a good CRT shader for to preserve transparency effects (like the waterfalls in Sonic 2) and dithering. The problem is, a lot of shaders that are lightweight enough (easymode, lottes-fast, etc.) don't seem to do the trick, the ones that work well (sonkun, royale) are too heavy for the hardware, and some that might be solid contenders are made for 1080p+ resolutions and create giant, goofy scanlines at 480p.

The are so easy with the lcd-v2-color shaders, but finding a good CRT shader for home console has been tough with this device.

@andregil Kinda! Most of the 16-bit and prior emulators have built-in blargg NTSC filters, and that did the trick for me without harming performance. It's not like a proper shader, but it gives me the effect I wanted.

ADHDefy,
@ADHDefy@easymode.im avatar

@andregil The 2S is powerful enough that you could probably run some actual shaders. Check out Retro Crisis on YouTube, he makes shaders and also talks about other shaders, you might have some luck getting his to run without a performance hit, but I'm not 100% sure about that. My favorite shaders are Sonkun's shaders, but I suspect they might be a little heavy for a Retroid.
