I am berry not comfy right now.
I feel like I don't belong anywhere. Nowhere online lines up with my ideals. I have a list of what I want in a community and nothing meets the requirements. The webring is a disaster, eberryone hates each other and is trying to kill eberry other site or spread lies. I don't fit into any IRL groups either, except for maybe one that only meets monthly. I want friends but nobody shares even the same interests with me.
It's all so tiresome.

>eberryone hates each other and is trying to kill eberry other site or spread lies
I honestly think it's just a handful, maybe only one or two, that are doing this and the go from site to site stirring up trouble and then go to whatever meta thread on the opposite site and to give a report of what they "found" and try to generate an outrage and drive a wedge. It's best not to give those anons the time of day and just go to what boards on what sites you want and encourage others good anons to do likewise.
I hope this silly youkai pic cheers you up.

It has always been like this for me but I don't want friends either, with my family I have enough. I am already too careless for them, people need so much attention and they don't understand we don't have the same needs.

Wow this board is still going strong. I haven't visited in a year or two probably. I posted about how I got an apartment and wood make my bedroom extremely comfy. I mostly succeeded. Sunrise alarm, blackout curtains, weighted blanket. I just also said I wood keep other electronics out, but I'm not doing that, lol. I'm on my phone in bed like normal.

I've got the same feeling expect it's something I'm looking for. I always try to not be part of something. Don't get it wrong I'm involved in some subculture circles and have a decent social life but I reject totally embracing codes of such circles. It's ok to be part of groups without being totally like-minded. I must say that's what makes it interesting, people with different opinions and nuanced views even in a same group.

When you meet people they usually try to put you in boxes by asking : "who are you", I say them I'm nothing. Being nothing is nice because I can be whatever I want.

Friendship is not necessary a matter of having the same point of view nor interest on eberrything. Sure it helps having shared ideas but that's not the most important thing imo.

They probably wood be but since I've got some store bought pumpkins and because these are good keepers, I need to let them go till some time after the first of the new year. I also want to make sure the seeds are as fully developed as they can get.

They're just all together in an oversized pot under florescent lights and next to window. And there's plenty of heat in the house. The biggest issue is managing water. You have to thread the needle between too wet and too dry.
They're all producing new leaves so that means they're actively growing. I wood like to get the pumpkins on some new roots asap though. I don't fully trust the old vascular system to make it through to march/april.

One week till Christmas, /comfy/. Is eberryone getting ready?
This year is a struggle for comfy. The expectations for my current job since Q1 of this year are unrealistic, overwhelming, confusing, and underappreciating. A chaotic schedule is also making it nearly impossible to get into a rhythm for work/life balancing. Why I haven't quit this job when I quit a similar trashy job in this year's Q1, I do not know. It sort of feels like this job has 'just' the right amount of suck to force me into reevaluating my life's decisions and how I carry myself.

And so to the previous extent, part of what I'm doing to reclaim comfy is tidying up my living space using the KonMari method. It is not yet the life changing magic as advertised. But discarding material possessions which do not spark joy as a means to literally confront the stupid and/or out of date decisions I've made in the past is at least helping in freeing my mind from pointless distractions and making it a little more possible to find fresh topics and perspectives.

I ate a pound of tuna for breakfast yesterday. I keep adding konbu to chili when I make it.  I do not own any sugar.

Berry cool. Yet another thing I didn't know about. Berry nice sounding piece Anon, thanks!  :)
I'm trying to make space and come up with the money to build some kind of drum kit and learn to play the drums. I think I'm going to get a suitcase kick drum and a snare that will fit inside it and then build up from there. I find the idea exciting since drums aren't an instrument I have any experience with.
>>8056
I was thinking about maybe getting a hurdy-gurdy someday, but it's not a high priority right now. They've always seemed intriguing to me since I knew what they were. I think I first learned about them due to liking Led Zeppelin as a teenager.

We're working on a solution but for now it's my sleeping time so I can't do anything more. Today I have a big schedule but tonight I will take some time to look forward.

Saty /comfy/ :)

I've made a couple of fake imageboards where no-one can really post on, just to bait and track those mean spammers, but someone pointed out to me that they're actually bretty comfy and some attempted posts have been nice :)

In light of this, I'm tempted as a challenge to try and make a custom imageboard where it's almost impossible to make an uncomfy post, because there are so many wordfilters and imagefilters. Of course part of that challenge is to not block legitimate users while doing that. Maybe send any suspicious but unsure posts to a moderation queue before making them public.

In the original CSS the OPs are not totally the same (it using the same color with a bit of transparency).

You might have a glance at our CSS over on alogs/robowaifu/ , BO. Thanks primarily to the talents of our resident CSS guru(s), we implemented a partial blur/transparent effect compromise that I rather like. At the least maybe there would be something there of some interest ATM? Regardless, it looks great here already! Good job.

Today I was in a need to go in the wild so I grabbed the gf and we drove to the little mountains we've got there for a hike. It was really windy, rainy and a bit cold (too warm for winter though) but we enjoyed the walk a lot. There was nobody but us in the foggy hills and forests and the feeling was very comfy.

Pies most likely although I've wanted to try and make pumpkin flan. 
Seed saving wise I'm going take a pic of each and include it in the bottle since I'm keep the seed from each pumpkin separate. Seminole pumpkins are a landrace and not a strict variety and I grew two separate lineages. So I want to keep a balance of traits so that I can stabilize it into a single line since it's more convenient that way.
Replies: >>8245

>So how does this 'lineage of traits' stuff work exactly?
Basically landraces are locally occurring type varieties that are maintained and semi-intentionally "bred" by what amounts to subconscious artificial selection.
Which is an overly wordy way of saying all the local growers save seed from the plants they like so you end up with a tendency toward certain traits. So the local community on the left side or the river/canyon/mountain/etc. might prefer pumpkins with small round fruit whereas ones on the right side might prefer ones with larger fruit that are bilobial or necked so you get a population drift between the two.
Another thing is that landraces tend to not be as regular than strictly maintained and bred cultivated varieties so they'll produce a gradient of fruit (or other) traits. For contrast and comparison, Country Gentleman corn will produce the same white, unrowed kernals from every ear on every plant so that makes it a fully stabilized variety. On the other hand something like Nal-tel corn, a landrace, will produce a blend of different color ears ears from different plants but you'll see the same general traits ( ear shape, the possible spectrum of colors, plant size) repeated over and over in the local population. It's actually a little difficult to find a good example pic of nal-tel because of its variation and it makes me feel like I'm not properly doing it service.

Any way what I'm intending to do is to make my own little personal population of Seminole pumpkins to produce the usual small fruit but also occasionally throw the odd larger necked pumpkin as well so I've got to make sure to not select only for one trait or the other while also not just blending both traits together either. It's actually simple really because God and the pumpkins are doing all of the work but I've got to be conscious of what seed from which fruit I save from so that I don't unconsciously favor certain traits over others. Mostly that's an issue for the first few generations before the traits are well mixed.

Wow, thanks for the lesson Anon! I'm actually fascinated Biochemistry/Molecular Biology as a study of God's design, engineering, architecture/systems engineering at the nano scale. However at the more macro scale of breeding I'm a bit of a retard it seems.  :P

Care to explain ?
First time I've heard of this it was while studying conspiracy theories (you know the they want to destroy humanity so Bill Gates invested in a seed bunker for the elite survivors narrative).

I work in an agrobiological genetic research laboratory (not as a scientist but more as a low-level technician) and they store old and rare seeds in freezers to. I'm responsible for their smooth operation and supervision.

The Cinnamon edition of Linux Mint. I'm probably just going to switch to Ubuntu Studio instead of just installing the Ubuntu Studio stuff on top of Mint like I did before. I don't think I'm necessarily going to like it better, but it seems like it should be a bit better of an experience out of the box than what I've had with Mint. Right now my sound still works in most instances, but certain audio-related programs don't work due to packages breaking. That means I can't do something like mess with guitarix while watching a YouTube video.

The good thing is that since they're both offshoots of Ubuntu the experience shouldn't be all that different from what I'm used to.

I looked it up not that long ago, and what I read seemed to indicate that it would just be easier to do a reinstall than trying to fix the problem. In my case that's probably correct, since I'm not very technically inclined when it comes to Linux.

After using Ubuntu Studio a bit, I think I'm just going to end up dualbooting with Mint and Wangblows 10. I turned my computer on today, and my window buttons were missing. I had to run "kwin --replace" to get them back. I also had an instance of my resolution becoming messed up after my computer going to sleep, which doesn't sit well with me. I was also expecting the way audio applications are handled to have a bit more of a plug-and-play approach.

I'll have to take a look, but from what I've seen it only supports Plasma, MATE, and Xfce. I've tried all three of those now and definitely prefer Cinnamon. I thought Plasma would be more reliable, but I've unfortunately been let down in the short time I've used it. Cinnamon's definitely far from perfect though. I have a problem with desktop items constantly getting moved off the grid and getting squashed on top of each other.
>Mint isn't very good, but that's mostly Ubuntu's fault.
The problem is that Ubuntu tends to be seen as the standard of compatibility for Linux-based programs (or at least was in the past).  I don't know anything about software development, but I think it would be nice if things were more focused more generically on Debian than Ubuntu. In my uninformed opinion, I get the impression that Ubuntu is just coasting along on its past reputation as the standard Linux distro for the average person.

For sure, Debian makes a great desktop if you like things to remain unchanged for a couple of years (or more if you wait for EOL before upgrading), it's a very set and forget experience.

I believe Pipewire is supposed to simplify the audio server situation, you should be able to have ALSA, Pulse and JACK applications existing in harmony from what I've heard.

>Anon, you can install any DE on any distro. Just install cinnamon on a better distro.
Does that still work without breaking things? I read before that a lot of distros are made with certain DEs in mind, and installing a different one will run the risk of causing problems. Where does compositing fit in? I don't like the way Plasma does window previews.

I did install Nemo on here and am using it as my main file manager (I got in the habit of using Dolphin to open up a specific group of folders when I open it and using Nemo for everything), which I've read isn't smart, but the experience still isn't quite the same as using Nemo in Mint.

Pipewire + Wireplumber is supposed to simplify things, but there's still configuration involved.
Replies: >>8614
>>8612
>Does that still work without breaking things?
It's unlikely to be a problem, the only thing is it probably won't be preconfigured like the default included with the distro.
>I read before that a lot of distros are made with certain DEs in mind, and installing a different one will run the risk of causing problems.
The specialized desktop distributions generally take an existing distro, install a DE, customize it, maybe write some utility programs and bundle all that into an ISO. An alternative is to do this yourself by starting with a minimal base install of something like Debian, Arch, Void and so on. Some distros (such as Debian) let you choose to add a DE during installation as well.
>Where does compositing fit in?
A compositor is either built into the window manager (like in Kwin or Xfwm) or a separate program (for instance picom) that you run alongside the WM.
>I don't like the way Plasma does window previews.
You might be able to tweak it, KDE programs tend to have lots of options.
>which I've read isn't smart
Only in the sense that programs from different DEs won't integrate as well.
>Hasn't Manjaro been going downhill?

I've seen criticizing it fairly recently for the user experience. The feeling I got was that people were starting to feel like the distro's starting to drop the ball.

The problem is that I'm not a technical person by Linux standards. I only really got into computers in the first place because I was obsessed with video games as a kid and always preferred PC games.

Huh, that reminds me of my experience. I was a typical PC gamer who could tinker when necessary but didn't have much reason to dig further, until anons started talking about the spyware crap that was going to be included in Windows 10. That led down the privacy rabbit hole and realizing how all the big services and programs were milking their users information. It was pretty disturbing honestly and soon after I switched to Linux. Kind of crazy to think how much I've learned since then. It's very much a learn-as-you-go type situation, what you don't know today you might find out tomorrow.

It feels like I got my Mint install mostly back to how I had it in most ways. I'm glad it didn't take me long to have a comfortable computer setup again for ordinary use, even if it is pretty wonky. I'm glad I had my programs backed up. I was blindsided by the fact that Ubuntu Studio wasn't compatible with the list file I had. 

Now all I have to do is get my Windows partition set up for audio work, although that's kind of a pain in the neck compared to Linux. With Linux installations you don't need to worry about things like audio interface drivers. The real headache will be setting up my DAW stuff the specific way I had it when I was on Windows before.

My desk has a thing for lifting my computer to standing height at work, but I'm too tall for it, and it forces me to reach and look down to it.  Most things feel small like that though.

I'd like to see more reptiles outside. I never really see them where I live. Only on other people's property. I did see a skink where I live a few years ago, which was interesting because it happened not that long after I made a comment to someone wishing I would see a lizard after never having seen one in the wild before. What's stranger is that it wasn't even out in the woods or anything. It was walking along on pavement in plain sight, where you could see it from inside the house.
>>8733
>Glad to hear it.  Are you doing a particular method?
I really just clear my mind with my eyes closed and try keep my thoughts from bouncing around all over the place. Sometimes I just focus on bodily sensations, like if I feel like I'm waving or rocking inside for lack of a better way of putting it.  One technique I use is to feel like I'm staring into the blackness of my mind's eye. Contrary to how it sounds, concentrating on emptiness is far from depressing in my experience. I've noticed a feeling of peace and fulfillment. I get the feeling that this would be our natural state if we could clean all the garbage out of our minds that has a tendency to accumulate there throughout our lives..

If I notice negative feelings or beliefs at all, I try to let them wash over me. I've noticed that if I focus on them instead of just ignoring them, they tend to dissipate. The uncomfortable meditation experience I wrote about was an exception. People put way too much stock in the idea of forcing themselves to be positive, when I think that's more counterproductive than anything. I believe it's best to face your feelings in a head-on manner rather than pretend they aren't there and that everything's peachy keen.

Honestly? At this point I'm concerned that seeking 'refuge' in Christian social media (in any form) is a viable construct. As a devout Christian already, I can tell you that :
A.  It's a pretty ripe harvest field (obviously).
B.  It's a complete sh*testorm to a young-believer/seeker 's faith walk. The >tl;dr is that it's filled with untold numbers of loud-mouthed haters/disingenuous atheists doing everything they can for their father Satan to destroy Christian faith of believers. And this isn't even talking about others promoting things like Islam & a million other diversions from the Truth.

Honestly? Until you become solid in your faith, I'd just stick with a smol, Bible-believing church congregation. Let them get to know you (& vice-versa). Then, once you're well-established in the faith, you can venture into Christian-oriented IBs or other forms of social media.

That's my council to you in this matter, Anon. Cheers.  :)

Well I tried going to a church's youth group but to be devastatingly frank I felt like a complete outsider here.
Either people are much younger than me or most people are around 50+
>Then, once you're well-established in the faith, you can venture into Christian-oriented IBs or other forms of social media.
Somehow I wish things were different but I'm not the one that knows these places so I can't say much.
It's just that being a celibate for so long and having come to terms that chasing the dragon of intimacy these last years has left me quite damaged I really think I should just take my devotion to Jesus and stop it with that.

I see. Hmm, well you might try looking for a somewhat larger church. They'll usually have something called 'College & Career' for wizard-aged individuals. Really there are many, many Churches if you're in Burgerland, so there should be several opportunities for you Anon. Keep searching is my suggestion about 'fitting in'. You'll find something.

This may be true. OTOH, the New Testament verse in the Christian Bible says clearly that we are to associated together in communal gatherings [1]. You certainly could potentially benefit by rubbing shoulders with legit Christians.

I'll pray for you to find God's will in these matters, Anon. I'd suggest you do the same. Cheers.  :)

It sucks to have to kill things like that. The one I saw ran away under some building siding and I never saw it again. I would have rather it had come inside and ate some bugs.

I also forgot to mention turtles. I have seen them fairly often over the years, although it's most often snapping turtles.

Lol. If you say so, Anon. If you're an active hater of Jesus Christ and Christianity -- a Jew, say -- then you are by definition, an antichrist. Satan rules over all antichrists. Simple as. Same goes for these so-called """atheists""" as well ofc. God doesn't believe in them.  :^)

Neat! How do you properly prepare a place for such things, Anon?
I've already got a big glass pot with sphagnum moss. Once the environment is right (constant humidity and substrate) they are very resilient organisms that adapt very easily. I'm going to add some volume and new colors with these little ones. I'll post a photo this evening when I've tinkered with everything.

Sorry for more fish posting.  Fishing on my lunch break has been a good way to clear my mind and have a nice time.  I feel like doing  something relaxing outside for a little bit  is really improving my day.  I need to find other comfy stuff to do in short periods of time outdoors.   I am considering bringing some camping stuff to work with me and making tea and instant ramen or something as a mini picnic.  I am also considering binging a kite to work and I am toying with the idea of trying out ikebana inspired arrangements with some of the local vegetation as it gets warmer.

Happiness is like an egg. An egg looks round at first, then it looks like an oval,  but that's not right either.  Really, eggs are some sort of asymmetric tapered thing.

I've had to see doctors about it since I was a kid, and last time they told me to start using Debrox drops. They did say the buildup was so bad that they understood why I went in. They had to scrape around my eardrum, and it was really painful. My ear was bleeding and everything. They could tell how much it hurt and told me I could just flush out the rest and home if I wanted.

I'm just going to keep using Debrox drops every day until it hopefully gets better. I used to use plain hydrogen peroxide, but all that did was soften the wax up.
