I found myself in a similar situation a while back. After reading some reviews, I decided to buy a new PS4 controller, and I'm pretty happy with it. Feels very solid, good d-pad, you can use a micro-usb cord (not included) or bluetooth (if the computer supports it). Getting it to work in Linux was as easy as plugging it in.

As for downsides, the micro-usb connection doesn't feel quite as robust as one would like for a controller imo, compared to just having the cord sticking out or maybe an usb-c port. But I doubt it will become a problem in practice.

Nice comment!

And not to get all nostalgic and weird and shit, but I have enjoyed reading your posts and comments over the years :-)

We believed that we would "stay with it". We would never become our parents, we would always "get it". We thrived in the weirdest corners of early 2000s internet, nothing could phase us.

Everything changed when the fire nation attacked.

I was curious enough that I decided to check it myself. Here are the total counts of punctuation marks in the plain project gutenberg text: https://i.imgur.com/EEblCqU.png

The em dash was represented as two characters (--) so I didn't include it (would have been like 5 minutes more of work), sorry hoppet.

Wasn't really as extreme as I thought, but the semicolon/period ratio does seem to be higher than in all the other analyzed books. The period/comma ratio is also quite interesting to compare.

Cool! I'd like to see how Jane Eyre compares: Charlotte Brontë and semicolons, name a more iconic duo.

I am far from a fashion person, but when it comes to men's clothes for $200, here's what I would do:

$100: A nice pair of skinny jeans, with fairly thick fabric. The ones with thin, stretchy fabric will feel great, but they tear quickly. In my experience, you can just walk into a shop with jeans, tell them what you're looking for, and they will set you up.

$30: An ok dress shirt, to wear tucked into the jeans for nicer occasions. You won't get the great stuff at this price point unfortunately, so look for sales. The important thing here is that you feel comfortable wearing it, but if you're not that into dress shirts you might need to convince yourself.

$40: 2-4 t-shirts, with a shape and print that you like

$30: A nice sweater

Ardour has the weirdest business model. It's free software but you can pay for binaries, and I'm pretty sure that they're trying to keep the build process as difficult and annoying as possible on purpose.

And the old games are either defunct, deserted, or filled with ridiculously talented players. I just want to play Counter-Strike 1.6 or Return to Castle Wolfenstein on a server full of average players again :/

It finally got me, just as I was replying to this comment https://www.jstpst.net/f/general/1911/comment/4326

I took a screenshot and started to write this comment, and when I was done I clicked back in that tab and tried to repost the original comment and it went through (I didn't try to post it again immediately afterwards).

I like to try to find out about the history of the train and route, especially if it's an older train. Idk if it's the same everywhere, but where I am each car will have a unique number, so it's possible to trace the history of the particular car you're sitting in, when it was built and renovated and such.

On my android phone (all android phones?) the tab count is replaced with a ":D" smiley when you reach triple digits. I usually try to stay in the 80-99 tab range, but at the moment I'm solidly into :D territory.

596 is beyond my wildest dreams.

Safety razor shaving is awful IMO, but it's somehow better than the alternatives. Are you using canned shaving cream? It should work fine, but shaving got way easier for me when I got a soap and brush.

(I have a synthetic brush from Mühle, from what I can tell it ought to be just as good as any badger brush. It was pretty cheap when I bought it too.)

tbh I think it's a bit of sad that these old games are losing their mystique. The idea that there are ancient, forgotten tricks is very appealing, in a romantic way.

On the other hand, I really like the current collaborative optimization efforts, illustrated in their best shape in the recent super mario bros 4-2 progression video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1AHCaokqhg

In "King of Kong", Billy Mitchell is the mean villain who seems to get away with anything while Steve Wiebe is the unfairly maligned underdog.
