technologicalcaveman,

I dunno, Calyxos has been pretty great for me.

I struggle with depression and alexithymia. How do I write with emotion?

I have to write a paper about a place/time that I have an emotional attachment to or a place that has shaped my sense of self. I haven’t really felt much of an attachment to anything for most of my life. Even if I did, I wouldn’t even know how to begin describing the nature or cause of that attachment. I chose to write about...

technologicalcaveman,

I deal with the same thing. I had written for several small publications, and one way I overcame my disconnect from emotion was just by stream of conscious describe things. The way I'm subconsciously describing it tends to reveal my feelings for it. Directly, i really feel nothing for it but under the layers I do have a sense of emotion for it.

technologicalcaveman,

Been reading Dune, almost done then I'm reading Dune Messiah. Working to finish the whole series by the end of the year.

I have not seen any of the movies.

[Forever-free Friday] The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall (www.dfworkshop.net)

Before Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind there was Daggerfall, the second entry in what has become a household name for fantasy RPGs. The original is available on Steam and GOG, though 23 years later we have a modern remake in the form of Daggerfall Unity which brings in modern graphics, controls, QoL improvements and mod support...

technologicalcaveman,

Been playing for a while already. Daggerfall is a favorite of mine. The devs are making a new game called Wayward Realms. It looks like Daggerfall with modern graphics. Down the the weirdness of the layout for the world, with random crypts and graveyards miles from anything at all.

technologicalcaveman,

Gentoo gaming and music production rig working through mostly tty with dwm as a graphical display. I typically stay on tty until I want to play a game, use modern web, or record a song. Otherwise tty with Links browser.

technologicalcaveman,

What's been the toughest sacrifice you've made for lent?

technologicalcaveman,

I was using an old plasma screen from around 2008/9 for a while until my girlfriend's sister's exboyfriend stole it. Their dad gifted me a 55in 4k tv that wasn't bid on at an auction he was running. That plasma is probably gonna burn down Shithead's place at some point, it was pretty sketchy.

technologicalcaveman,

Helldivers 2. I just found it boring. I'm waiting still for my refund, I only haf about 1.5 hours in it. But only 45 minutes of gameplay. I managed to only get a few matches and they were very dry.

technologicalcaveman,

It's a cool concept, but just seems short of what I expected. Seems the majority of good stuff is much much further down the line in it. I'd say Deep Rock is better option for this kind of game. Doing missions and fighting hoards of bugs.

technologicalcaveman,

I use a t480 for my carry laptop with Gentoo. It's been solid. Replaced both batteries pretty easily, replaced thermal paste, and it's good to go again. I paid about 160 got it. I had a t460 as well, but gave that to my gf. Either of those were good and not too expensive for a semi modern computer for general usage.

technologicalcaveman,

The idea of a a Ready or Not styled game with the comedy and tone of Deep Rock would be killer.

YSK: Indeed and other job sites are saturated with scams

For the past two years, legitimate job postings on Indeed and Glassdoor have been replaced by scams. If you’re tricked, the scammers aren’t satisfied with your contact info in your CV, they reach out via email to request that you connect on an encrypted messenger app where they can privately scam you out of thousands in...

technologicalcaveman,

What's the best place to look for jobs these days? Going on indeed floods me with endless "insurance sales" positions. I tried Dice, but almost every job is wildly out of range for experience to pay. I've devolved down to scrolling over an area on google maps and clicking businesses to check their websites.

technologicalcaveman,

I recently finished The Myth of Sisyphus by Camus. I'm going back and forth between Meditations by Aurelius or Kraftwerk: Future Music from Germany by Schütte. I tend to take my time with books so I want to make it count. Meditations is shorter and been on my list for a while, but I've been on a serious thing for Kraftwerk lately.

technologicalcaveman,

Even though it's a stereotype, Catcher was my favorite book throughout school. From abouy 6th grade I read it every year until I graduated high school. I wrote many essays around it for my English classes.

technologicalcaveman,

I used Ubuntu, then Arch, and now Gentoo. Been about 2 years with most of my time on Arch. Gentoo is my favorite though. Just does what I want, how I want.

technologicalcaveman,

Most of my girlfriend's family is deaf. They read fairly slowly and end up usually not really following subtitles very easily. Sign language is fastest for them to understand.

technologicalcaveman,

I probably could figure out the issue fast. I just don't want to.

technologicalcaveman,

I've got no issue with it. I'm just relating what they said to my experience.

technologicalcaveman,

Well, I knew my brother was getting a new phone soon anyways so getting notified his device changed wasn't a surprise. Otherwise, getting notified hia device changed without that knowledge may have triggered me to contact him elsewhere to ask if he did. Signal is mostly going to be conversations between close/trusted individuals. It doesn't tell you what they changed to, the message basically tells you that if this person didn't legitimately change devices then it might be a bad actor.

technologicalcaveman,

For a case that comes included with the system I can't complain. I put a cloth under the deck and the US charger fits alright. I'll maybe get a bigger case someday, but this one is prettu good for me not having to go get another one. The switch didn't come with a case, so it wad just naked until I found a decent one.

technologicalcaveman,

Calyx is amazing for me, I love it. BUT android auto doesn't work on it, which is lame. I've learned to deal with it and use waze instead.

technologicalcaveman,

I looked at my requirements of being stable and secure, and calyx seemed to have the most focus on that plus having a good outward image. Graphene's main dev has had a troubled past with criticism.
