Debian sounds like it would fit you pretty well. It's a precompiled distro that's package managed via apt. KDE works just fine on it and there's probably all sorts of small familiar things given Debian gave birth to Ubuntu.

I've found the stable version to be incredibly stable in the past and the testing release has a bit fresher set of packages if you're willing to a risk of occasional jank. If you willing to work a bit for fresher packages still you can find uptodate debian packages of popular software maintained some else than the Debian folks themselves, I used to use a bleeding edge daily version of Emacs myself and installed Spotify from their own repository.

The one made by me is the best, btw. Saturn-Valley. I refuse to be modest, but I do love how there is a site that I can make look like the file loading screen of EarthBound. I believe that a lot more sites could take inspiration from that game!

Yeah thanks. Like I avoided doing the task for about four days, but when I posted I got it done in under 30 minutes. Like, whatever, it's a bit irrational to behave like this, but somehow telling someone else about what I need to do helps me put back on track.

Tbh I have the feeling that the real dystopian parts of this will be the social ones, image generation brrr is really the innocuous part to me. Like imagine Disney automating in-betweening work using patented proprietary methods, outcompeting every other animation studio in the business. I fear the backlash will lead to an expansion of copyright, whereas, as a provisional demand at least, we could be demanding something cooler like basic income.

All that said it's cool to have someone deep in the topic around here.

I did it. Thank you for your support in these trying times.

I kinda feel like there's a misunderstanding why astrology and occult have been seen as cool in the first place. People into those have been into them despite the polite society seeing them as silly. It's this disregard for respectability which makes them cool. Making it a wholesome queer aesthetic that demands to be respected misses the point and also any "wholesome" social space is pretty unbearable imo. Not everything needs to be a fandom.

I feel like queer spaces have really happily embraced up the gendered marketing.

Yeah I definitely agree. My expectations by now really are that it's a bunch of people with somewhat aligned interests inopposition to cishet norms and anything beyond that is a result of struggle.

Also on an entirely different tack: I just dislike how in some queer and SJ spaces it's beyond gauche to consider astrology silly. Like we ought to have some kind of reverent attitude towards it or we're some hegemonic white cishet dudebros. Like it's ok to like goofy and silly things and not to expect people to all agree with it or to think that voicing disagreement is a moral failure.

I appreciate this post, I've never even thought about this angle into it.

Link is dead because he lost to Ganon and now is a ghost who must spook Ganon to make him pee his pants as a revenge.

I just read a little and apparently the type system is Turing complete? That's kinda funny, I wonder how common that is.

As a kid I had a demo cd that had you walk in a space ship to access video game demos and one of them was the Beavis and Butthead adventure game demo. Probably should watch the show and play the game someday!
