    Thanks for the recommendation, I like it! It looks like Bloom is their only album though? That's disappointing.

    Are there more domains than just tildes.net and tild.es? That seems high for two domain renewals.

    I'm also into stoner rock and I love Greenleaf. Agents of Ahriman is my favorite album of theirs. Do you listen to Dozer and Truckfighters?

    I've been trying to read more novels this year, so I wanted a small bag to carry a book around. Wanting my manpurse to be as un-pursey as possible, I got this canvas ammo bag, and I love that I now feel like I am always prepared for anything. In addition to a book, I keep in it: an umbrella, an AM/FM radio MP3 player speaker flashlight with 1500 songs on an SD card, phone charger, powerbank, mini first aid kit, sunglasses, travel size flat fold duct tape, tylenol, waterproof notepad, space pen, multitool pocketknife/scissors/pliers/screwdriver/bottle opener, condom, toothbrush, deodorant, chapstick, antacids, gum, mints, cough drops, nail clipper, lighter, hand sanitizer, wet wipe, paper towels, tissues.

    This is a good guide.

    redacted.ch, a music tracker, has an IRC interview process.

    Once you become a "power user" on one private tracker, by reaching upload requirements and maintaining a good ratio for a certain amount of time, you gain access to that tracker's invite forum, where you can request access to almost any other private tracker.

    I got into private torrents when I got invited to What.CD by someone on 4chan's /mu/ board over a decade ago.

    I also loved Fleabag and enjoyed The Boys. If you're looking for more stuff to watch on Amazon Prime, I'd recommend Patriot.

    I could invite you to the site (if you know how to use torrents and will maintain a good ratio), or upload the album to a site like mediafire.

    Anyone else been watching the show Cake on FXX? It just started in September, there's five episodes so far. Each episode is a series of shorts, some of them animated, some of them live action. The animated bits are kind of similar to TripTank or Monkey Dust.

    I finished Brave New World last week. I had felt like it's one of those classics that many people read in high school that I had missed out on. I liked the first half better than the second; I found Bernard and Lenina to be more interesting characters than John. I did appreciate his Shakespeare references though, I've been involved in community theatre productions of many of the plays he mentioned. This was the first book of Huxley's that I've read, but after looking up his bio I think I may check out The Doors of Perception sometime.

    I've just started reading V. by Thomas Pynchon. I'm only a dozen pages in, but I'm liking the humor so far. Seems like there might be a lot of oddly-named characters to keep track of though. This is my second of Thomas Pynchon's after The Crying of Lot 49. I also have a copy of Gravity's Rainbow in my to-read pile, but it may be a while til I get to it because I like to read on my lunch break at work, and that book is too thick to fit comfortably in my manpurse bag.

    The fact that weddings happen on plantations is news to me. Would you have your wedding at Dachau? At Gettysburg? Of course not.

    I'm from central Pennsylvania, and a wedding at Gettysburg wouldn't seem that odd to me. The National Civil War Museum is available as a wedding venue. The Battlefield Bed & Breakfast Inn advertises that you can "Get married on the hallowed ground of the Gettysburg battlefield then dine and dance in a certified historic Civil War barn".

    Windows:

    • Ctrl+Shift+Esc: Task Manager
    • Hold Ctrl+Shift when launching a program from the Start menu to launch as admin. Example: Press Windows key, type "cmd", Ctrl+Shift+Enter = launch command prompt as administrator. Ctrl+Shift and clicking on the program also works.
    • Shift+right click in Windows Explorer adds more options to the context menu, such as "copy as path", "run as different user", "open PowerShell window here".
    • WinKey + 1 through 0: Launch/switch to the corresponding program on the taskbar.
    • F2: Rename. Then you can Tab to quickly rename the next file.

    Microsoft Outlook and Word:

    • Shift+F3: change case, it cycles through capitalize, uppercase, lowercase.
    • Alt+F7: Go to the next word flagged by the spell checker and show suggestions.

    I just finished Ubik by Philip K. Dick. It's the second novel of his I've read; I really liked Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said but Ubik didn't really wow me as much. It had some cool worldbuilding, with precogs and telepaths versus agents with anti-talents hired to protect people from them. I would've liked to see that aspect explored more.
