I set up a Minecraft Lost Cities modded server to play around with. Take a look. It's a mapgen mod, so the world is an auto-generated abandoned city in all directions. If there is enough interest for me to find donors, I will add some more features and plugin support. Currently it is otherwise vanilla, with 12 player slots.

There are skyscrapers, highways, bridges, tunnels, subways, and other structures. Forever. Treasure boxes and mob spawners are scattered randomly about, making it a very hostile world with infinite exploration value.

I fucking hate minimalism with a passion. Just thinking about it drives me nuts. Minimalism everything from interior design to technology is a cancer. It feels sterile and it has no room for personal expression of the designer. It is conformist in nature. It confuses simplicity with meaninglessness. Take Window's 10's blue screen. It gives you practically no information on what actually went wrong with your computer. It insults your intelligence. It's not sleek, it's nothing. Minimalism is supposed to be a means of compensating for modern distractions, but it's actually just an extension of modern empty-headedness. There is nothing in minimalist design to appreciate or think about. It's cold and incites no warm emotions. This conformist, lazy aesthetic is constantly being pushed on people all the time. It's like a form of brain-washing. It eats away at you and makes you just as empty as it. Design exists to look good, make you notice it, and give you a specific feeling. Minimalism does none of those things. It is the anti-design.

I rather like certain types of minimalism. Not in the corporate, airbnb type lifeless design, but instead in that there is less to worry about. Certain minimalist aesthetics help my mind feel less cluttered, and enable me to live life in a way that is more focused. I think a lot of minimalism is very contrived and uninteresting. However, minimalism can be calculated and intricate and have a positive effect. Consider traditional Japanese housing: I feel it forces one to focus more on life itself. This isn't Lain, but I know a lot of the same users intersect here. Isn't GNU/Linux ricing (a weird example) an example of minimalism and focus? You can have minimalist aesthetics that facilitate feng shui that present as much information as you want. It lies in how that information is presented.

Really reeks of faggotry. Square is objectively superior to circle in displaying images and space, and if someone wants to use a for-circle profile image, they can always just go on paint and draw a circle border around it. Options matter.

Yeah, nobody cares about options anymore. It's all about forcing their shitty aesthetic down people's throat. That really reflects on their entire mentality if you ask me. The first thing that put me off from vid.me wase the circle profiles. When youtube rolled out their newest, superfluous design change, I actually used adblock to neuter the site just to make it less of an eye sore. The first thing I got rid of was the new subscribe button. I only mentioned that one example because I use it the most.
>>18863
Again, I can't really think of any positive examples. Traditional Japanese interior design is simplistic and purposefully avoids decadence and unnecessary complications, but it still has a unique style and feel to it that goes beyond that. Japanese houses look quaint and cozy to me. It looks like home, unlike what describes itself as minimalist, which does not go beyond being as plain as possible. Really it's apples and oranges. Japanese houses having a lot of color in them is the most obvious difference. Soothing beige and vibrant orange and brown.

looking for an image that had instructions on how to remove and optimize files and services in windows 7 that i didnt have the foresight to save. pretty sure it was posted somewhere on this chan, but i cant find it, and search engines have failed me so far

some details of the image i remember: it was black with white text, very small font, and had numbered sections. there was info on stuff like what default programs to remove, interface tweaks to make, and useless services to remove for less memory usage

id really appreciate anyone who could post the image here or at least point to a place where it can be found

win+R "msconfig" and "services.msc" + google should be half of what you need. The guide posted also doesn't mention anything about the windows scheduler service, which is absolutely necessary to tweak. So much shit phones home constantly, and needs to be deleted/disabled from there.

I can't help but feel optimising or debloating Windows is a waste of time.

If you're interested in tinkering with your computer and running a lean system you should consider installing GNU/Linux instead.

I have a shitty laptop that barely run anything with windows 7. I debloated it and managed to lower the memory usage to an average of 650mb and it could even play 720p properly. When I installed arch on it the memory usage went as low as 120mb but intel mesa drivers are fucking shit and barely managed awesome with one or two programs open. So even if it actually ran well on the fucking terminal it was practically useless because I couldn't do much other than write code on it, play hack variants and dwarf fortress. And I don't even want to talk about the problems I had with wine to run VNs.

That sounds like something going wrong, more than slow drivers.
I use Linux on a 2006 laptop with Intel graphics without any problems. It plays 720 video fine.

As for VNs, that's the unfortunate reality it seems. I keep a WinXP machine around for that purpose.

Do you have anything you'd like/are planning to change?
Things like habits, spending too much time playing games, reading too little, not drawing, having too much free time and wanting to use it for something, etc.
Things that you had wanted to change for a long time but haven't either put yourself into work. Or, if you're working on that, what are you doing to change them?
As for OP:

→Exercise more
I spend most of my day sitting so I'd like to get rid of the extra energy I get every time I eat. The thing is, I live in a small apartment, and I don't really want to join a gym or anything like that. I'd like to run but the only good place is far and I don't have the time. I'd like to do something in my home but, since it's small, there's not much I can do to burn energy. At least I don't know of any exercise that doesn't require that much space other than abdominals and squatting.
→Fix twangy speech
I've only noticed recently my voice sounds twangy, probably because I don't speak too much/often so I don't move my mouth properly or something, but I've started to read books aloud and recording my voice to improve it.
→Learn to speak Japanese
I know how to read, but when it comes to speaking or writing in japanese I still have serious problems.

Not being aware of a speech impairment? Lack of time? Space? Cash to buy an intrument and working to get the money? Do I need to point out more examples of why somebody has been unable to complete some small goal?
Because that's what I mean. Small changes to change small things in your life to achieve some small goal, not procrastination, or some major chanfe in your life or anything like that. Philosophy has nothing to do with it. I didn't really thought it'd be necessary to explicitly state it.
/n/ is that way, my friend. Wanting to practice shodo and finding it hard to achieve because you can't find good brush and ink has nothing go do with demons.

My mood depends a lot on the the weather, time of day and season.
Time of day
Early morning is my favorite; it makes me feel fresh and clean, especially during the Summer. Something about waking up before most people, when the air is crisp, makes me blissful. Sunset somehow always depresses me. The sun slowly dipping into an orange haze reminds me that the day is coming to a close and that time has passed. The changing of seasons has a similar effect on me, but a summer sunset always feels the worst. Once night arrives I feel fine.
Weather
I love cloudy weather because it masks the time of day. You don't feel the slow, ceaseless crawl of time when it always looks the same outside. I also love rain and every type of storm. Hurricanes, blizzards, typhoons, they're all exhilarating. Compared to the daily monotony, they feel like an event. Sometimes I like to fantasize about massive, four story tall floods.
Season
Fall feels melancholic. Seeing the world slowly decay into bareness isn't pretty to me; Halloween is great though. Winter makes me feel tired and sort of hallow. There's some nice things about it too. Spring kind of puts me in a panic. For whatever reason, when the temperature outside rises above a certain point, it makes my thoughts a bit hazy and erratic, this just becomes more intense in Summer.
How does weather affect you? Do you notice anything similar?

 No.18746

Yes it does affect my mood. Late Summer is the best time for me. It still feels like summer but no longer sweltering hot. The clear sky with the small hint of autumn in the air feels really comfy. Also around that time the sunset faces my window so it gets even more comfy in my bedroom.

Looking at the clouds after a storm is also really nice too. Watching the grey cloud separate into smaller cumulus clouds revealing patches of blue sky is very comfy.

 No.18755

spring and autumn, but especially autumn, feel the best to me. i feel more like myself during those seasons, like i can breathe again. maybe it's because i was born in the fall.

i like it when it rains. it feels cozy.

Good guess, but what really happened what that i was stoned out of my brain and listening to Hawkwind and daydreaming about space travel when the familiar phrase "tachyon impact" entered the area between my ears somehow and I had no idea why it was familiar and I thought about it on and off for a day or so before I remembered that it was connected to one of the chon chiefs and you're the only one who still publicly operates a website so I posted it here strictly out of nostalgia, hoping that it would ring a bell with someone.
