    1. If you could completely refresh something and rebuild it from the ground up, what would it be and why?

      A lot of things we live with have significant technical debt because they were designed and implemented without modern knowledge and understanding. Knowing what we know now, in the present moment,...

      A lot of things we live with have significant technical debt because they were designed and implemented without modern knowledge and understanding.

      Knowing what we know now, in the present moment, what would you be interested in fundamentally redesigning if you could?

      This does NOT have to be technology related, by the way, though it certainly can (anyone want to talk about redesigning usernames and passwords -- please?). It can pretty much be anything: NASCAR races, art criticism, specific social norms, sunglasses, etc.

      In your explanation, don't just share what you're interested in tearing down, but how you would rebuild it for the better. What improvements would your methods bring to the table?

    2. I have a preliminary plan that will change with feedback from others here

      I'd like to preface my self by saying that I am in no way trying to spam ~music. My intention is to get this space rolling as much as I can based on the recent survey that Tildes is perceived to...

      I'd like to preface my self by saying that I am in no way trying to spam ~music. My intention is to get this space rolling as much as I can based on the recent survey that Tildes is perceived to be STEM heavy/leaning.

      Thus, I will be posting a lot of links to music that I believe is interesting to the general listener.

      The possibilities of this space are endless IMO and I hope to positively contribute to it.

    3. Diaries and Journalling, Oh My!

      Hi Tilderinos! Do any of you regularly journal, keep a diary, or otherwise record your thoughts and history, on a computer or on paper? I've been using the "bullet journal" algorithm (and yes,...

      Hi Tilderinos! Do any of you regularly journal, keep a diary, or otherwise record your thoughts and history, on a computer or on paper?

      I've been using the "bullet journal" algorithm (and yes, Ryder, it's a set of algorithms and data structures, no matter how much you say otherwise) for a while, slowly refining my personal practice over time - and sometimes making huge changes! Just this month, for my October journal prep, I switched from a list-style monthly log to a 7x5 grid of 3.5x3.5cm squares. It's very easy to make with my dotted notebook and a ruler, and it's easier to get an idea of my month at a glance!

      I've also decided to switch from a monthly braindump and check-in to doing smaller, mini-check-ins weekly, which I hope will help me keep better tabs on my fitness and mental health!

      So, what do you do? How do you feel about it? Share pictures if you're comfortable!

    4. What 'still/currently/actively in development' games are you following?

      Admittedly the game probably has to have a devlog of some form, otherwise this question is synonymous with "what games are you waiting for?", which is far too generic a question. The game I'm most...

      Admittedly the game probably has to have a devlog of some form, otherwise this question is synonymous with "what games are you waiting for?", which is far too generic a question.

      The game I'm most interested in is Songs of the Eons (itch.io, most active), which wants to be like Dwarf Fortress but a grand strategy game (main post, for context). Obviously they've noted that such a project will have Dwarf Fortress esque development, so waiting is very much in order.

      There's also Hyperbolica (trailer) which I've posted about here somewhat.

      There's also KSP 2, Hytale and Creeper World 4 which I like but don't follow that regularly, for not much reason TBH.

      I'd probably also follow Deltarune but Toby doesn't seem to really do dev updates too often.

      So are there any games that you're following as they're developed?

    5. Why some people change their wallpaper/profile picture more than others ?

      Is there any psychological thing behind it. if you are a changer why do you change your picture so often ? and what do you think about people who don't change it at all ?, and if you are constant...

      Is there any psychological thing behind it. if you are a changer why do you change your picture so often ? and what do you think about people who don't change it at all ?, and if you are constant why ? and what do you think about people who change it ?

      it's not that important I know, but it has been in my head for long time not. why people change their prof pic, computer/phone background so often than others ?

    6. Alternative to TeamViewer for LAN?

      Currently, controlling one of my PCs from another requires me to manually log into Windows on the remote computer so I can get the TeamViewer pw and then connect from the host. Is there another...

      Currently, controlling one of my PCs from another requires me to manually log into Windows on the remote computer so I can get the TeamViewer pw and then connect from the host. Is there another program that will launch at Windows startup so I log into Windows on the remote computer from the host? I don't need internet remote control and I'd prefer a free alternative that doesn't require an account or internet access to enable this type of feature (which I believe TeamViewer does). Remote computer is on Win 8, host on Win 10.
