    Here's my setup. As you can see, I'm using Sway on Arch Linux (original, I know.) Here are my dotfiles. The thing I'm most proud of is the grabweather script. I wanted to have a small script that updates my Waybar with the weather and temperature, but I couldn't find one, so I made my own.

    Couldn't you still use Thunar on GNOME?

    All I miss from XFCE is the file manager.

    Thanks for the reply. I haven't actually asked a trans person what they thought out it, so I probably should. And it obviously varies depending on who you ask.

    Nice to see you on Tildes. I learned about Hummingbard from TWIM, and jumped on it right away. I'm excited to see where you take it.

    Yeah, they were a blast! I started Plutonia last night, and good grief it's tough!

    Oh yeah, Plutonia is total bullshit, sometimes to the point where it isn't even fun. I'm pretty sure there are more chaingunners and archviles than there are imps. It's still pretty fun to play through, but a lot of other WADs have far surpassed it in terms of quality. I would recommend you finish it though, if only so you can get in on all the jokes about it (:

    Great to see another Civvie viewer on Tildes! I've watched almost all of his videos and love his sense of humor, along with the games he plays. I especially love when he plays through DOS trash.

    I can't for the life of me figure out what the first word for the old name was. I'm guessing the second is tit but I'm stumped.

    Heh. Sorry.

    it's fucking hard to aggregate things like ethnicity when you get responses ranging from black to a literal link of someone's You23AndMe results. Yes. I mean props to you for that but like, uh, FUCK, what am I going to do now? YOU ARE ALL MAKING THIS WAY TO FUCKING HARD. ლ(ಠ_ಠ

    Just curious, what's wrong with Linux?

    A Windows clone that's not bloated/spying on me that's not Linux or Mac or whatever. Just.....the same, but functional. Probs never going to happen anytime soon.

    Was going to answer the same thing. Doom has potentially infinite content, because of how easy it is to mod and because John Carmack decided to release the source code. It's amazing that the game is over a quarter of a century old and the modding scene is still alive and well.

    I decided to do my own "remasters" for the Ultimate Doom and Doom II. I run it using GZDoom's Vulkan renderer with the settings at max, I add in a voxel mod, Smooth Doom and Nash's gore mod

    I also have the classic versions running in Chocolate Doom if I want the genuine vintage feel.

    If you still want to give the Souls games a shot. Dark Souls 3 is a great entry point to the series.

    I think it's okay to hate Biden but still know that you have to vote for him because Trump is so much worse.
