    I had no idea that Satisfactory was going to be released on the Epic Launcher. Up until that point I was somewhat interested but when I saw that the launcher didn't support Linux I lost any and all interest in Satisfactory. I watched a few Let's Plays of the Yogscast and found it pretty dull.

    I'll be 30 next year and I'll probably still be living with my dad. Although I work with him in the family business that I'll probably end up partially taking over.

    I'm Canadian, and we never learned anything about World War 2 in high school. I don't know why demifiend is so bent out of shape about this.

    I started reading a couple of different manga:

    Hakoiri Drops: Basically the adventures of a super sheltered girl going to high school.

    No Guard Wife: A slice of life about a newly-wed husband and wife. Each "chapter" so far has been at most 5 pages though.

    Senryuu Shoujo: Basically komi-san but the girl uses haiku to communicate

    Zero - The Man of the Creation: This one is probably the coolest, but the story can be a bit hard to follow at times. The protagonist "Zero" can make perfect duplicates of anything - even people, somehow - and gets paid ridiculous amounts of cash. The lore of each story is well written, but sometimes the stories themselves are a bit unbelievable. In one story a woman somehow manages to hide an ancient relic in a painting at a world famous church in the USSR and the clue to the relic's location is on her tombstone. How Zero discovers this clue is not explained. Still would recommend it though. Each story involves Zero making a perfect copy of some macguffin to solve its mystery.

    I quite like Stumpt, I found them through the Stardew Valley subreddit but they play other games usually as a team of 4. Oxhorn's good if you're interested in Fallout lore, he doesn't do regular...

    Oxhorn's good if you're interested in Fallout lore, he doesn't do regular let's plays but he does stream.

    EthosLab is still a solid Minecraft LP'er.

    I like Master Hellish's OpenTTD series.

    I blitz Komi-san and started reading Hakoiri Drops which is kinda ehhh. I rewatched Inferno Cop which is still great. I tried Konasuba but I couldn't get into it, I found it annoying.

    I used to have an account on TorrentDay but I neglected it and my account got deleted. I'd like to get into IPT but I need either an invite or to pay.

  14. Comment on Good whodunnit/crime investigation books? in ~books

    UntouchedWagons Link Parent
    That sounds like it would get real annoying real fast.

    And the author's inexplicable habit of italicising just about every tenth word quickly creates the impression that everyone in the book is constantly waving their hands in the air, waggling their eyebrows and generally overdoing things.

    That sounds like it would get real annoying real fast.

    I'm fairly technical. I have installed Gentoo a few times and even though I never used it for long, I found it extremely helpful to learn how the basics of linux works. However at the moment I'm running Fedora 28. I've had to fix a few issue since installing but I like it.

    Preach it brother. It's annoying having to play whack-a-library trying to find out what obscure/non-sensical domains need to be whitelisted for basic functionality.
