    Dual booting Windows 7 for games and Linux Mint with i3 for basically everything else. Some people might say Mint is a strange choice, but it just works for me so why change it?

    I am kind of disappointed by this. I didn't look at r/watchpeopledie too often, maybe like twice a year, but I still don't like this. Reddit is just making itself more advertiser friendly by censoring anything that is at least a bit controversial. It no longer feels like a part of the old internet, operated by the community, it is starting to feel more and more sterilized and corporate. I think most of censorship on websites is unnecessary and doesn't solve too much, the discussion will just move somewhere else anyways.

    People growing up today will make so many cringe worthy memories for themselves and everyone else on the internet to enjoy easily in the future. Don't envy them to be honest.

    Eternal is my replacement to MTG, I have been playing it since open beta and I still enjoy it. It is of course worse than MTG, but there's still no good MTG client on PC, MTGO is terrible and AFAIK Arena is only Standard. I miss playing crazy strong combos like in MTG but otherwise Eternal is really good and in some things even better.

    Well my now 6 years old phone can run Pokemon Go just fine. I played it too at the same time as basically everyone when it released for a while.

    I agree that some people can find uses for the additional power, but for me, I can't imagine needing it. I guess mostly for people who play actually resource intensive games on the phone it is really useful. But most games I can imagine playing on the phone like Chess, Minesweeper and similar games (or even Pokemon Go) work just fine with a small amount of power that a small phone can easily have.

    I just want a (relatively) small phone with good battery life. Got a Samsung s4 mini for a while now and I am pretty happy with it. It is as big as I want a phone to be.

    I don't get why anyone actually needs a phone with crazy good specs, the only thing a phone needs is to be able to make calls and look at the browser basically. Or no?

    That's such an amazing feeling! After finishing all your exams. After finishing the work week (yay today it's friday). Just having the freedom to decide what I want to do, instead of constantly thinking of what I will have to do is so liberating.

    Oh yes also hugs.

  13. Comment on What's your coming out story? in ~lgbt

    I came out to my friends about a year ago and they have always been awesome and supportive, if maybe a bit surprised to find a homo in their midst (haha). I came out to my mom a month after that....

    I came out to my friends about a year ago and they have always been awesome and supportive, if maybe a bit surprised to find a homo in their midst (haha).

    I came out to my mom a month after that. She didn't say anything bad, except that she said that I don't act gay and things a bit similar to that, so that hurt a bit. Her basically telling me that I might not be gay because I don't do stereotypical gay stuff. And that made me question myself even more, which is kind of shitty, because it took me a long long time already to realize I am gay. I still sometimes think about if I even am gay, like what are the chances that me and not someone else is? I wonder if you guys still think about stuff like that. But then I always tell myself: what else would I be if not gay? I guess I could be asexual, because I definitely am not attracted to woman romantically or sexually... But my mom is awesome and didn't mean no harm. It has still been a bit awkward talking about my gayness with her, mainly because my failure to find any meaningful relationship, so I feel no reason to talk with her about any gay stuff. That's also the reason why I didn't come out to basically everyone else except the few friends and mom since then. When (and if) I find a boyfriend I will come out to basically everyone I know.

    So I still have a lot of coming out to do. I am really lucky that I have been born in such a accepting country and even though it's not perfect (no marriage equality here :( ) I am still really grateful I can safely come out.

    I am 20 and for me Firefox was always the obvious choice, when Chrome was created I had no reason to switch. What exactly was the reason to switch? Tons of ads everywhere telling everyone to switch?

    So yeah it's weird because I really don't get why everyone suddenly went to chrome. Ok, I guess it was, and still might be a bit faster, but I don't think the browser is ever too big of an influence when browsing the internet. The biggest difference is probably still you know, the internet download speed.

    Also, getting woken up by an alert could actually change peoples lives. And I think this comes down to basically the trolley problem. Would you rather save a child and let a lot of people have a worse day or the other way around?

    Of course if it would be my child I wouldn't even think about the answer. But that's what makes it so interesting. Because the right answer probably is to just "sacrifice" the child for the greater good, just like the trolley problem.

    Oh man I am so hyped for this. I can't believe they made it a full game instead of just a DLC. Hollow Knight is still the best game I played since it came out.
