The ones that have survived have pretty good names generally except for GNU like what? And their logos are worse. Also gnuplot for having nothing to do with GNU.

Tbh I can't name many proprietary apps that have great names but at least they're not horrible either. My favorite open source app name out of pretty recent ones is possibly Zathura.

In other words, everything is either an error or has side effects.

Steve Bannon and the occult: The right wing’s long, strange love affair with New Age mysticism by mmultiplierin politics

[–]StudentRadical27 2 points3 points ago

I'm terrible and didn't read but hasn't right wing politics and occult gone together since the Fremch revolution, at least? I mean this kinda thing would be kinda thrilling and nostalgically charming if it were fictional and there was hero crashing their parties and punch some justice.

COMPUTER FOLX: a hard drive conundrum by Dogmantrain just_ask

[–]StudentRadical27 2 points3 points ago

Hard drives get old and cranky and worn down (well SSDs much less so), I'd just get a new one as the main boot drive to reduce the risk of data loss.

Ah god I hate it so much when they pour the tea for you in restaurants why would they do that by oakreefin just_post

Would Ireland and Great Britain be ok? The relevant continuity really was tea culture, frenchies seem to be more about coffee so it seems to be that you can sort of draw a circle there somewhere.

TV animation fans in 2017 by StudentRadical27in just_post

Afaik YouTube is both unwilling (sweet children's attention for advertisement money) and fundamentally can't since about 400 hours of video is uploaded every minute.

That's gonna change if digital distribution becomes the norm in Japan. Also, children's animation will be replaced by this and adult animation by VR since otakus only care about fanservice anyways.

Those blue lights are definitely one of my small pet peeves when it comes electronics. Blue light can disrupt sleep even!

I hate all technical discussions about video games, especially related to ports and framerates by oakreefin killallgames

[–]StudentRadical27 2 points3 points ago

My sincere theory is that the gaming discussions are disproportionately by heavy users (i.e. 20-40+ hours per week) who tend to be on the more alienated side of populace as well. They're also a giant fandom of sorts. This produces people who are quick to lash out, have no frame of reference, don't grasp the importance of art direction etc. (since to them the thing to do to acquire better graphics is simply buying a gagdet), believe rumors, put way too much import on their in group and has trouble keeping up with the rest of the culture. (Like Symmetra's hair cut which was fashionable n years ago.)

The exceptions are niche countercultures and people who don't talk gaming online.
