Updated the Somnium with some macabre (and goofy) new dreams I had written down from years past, and updated the old Words/Phrases I Hate article with some new additions. Also renamed the General Griping subsection of articles to Comedy/General Griping to better fit the contents and remind people to not take the articles contained therein too seriously.

Your "Words/Phrases That I Hate" page was very cathartic to read, LOL. Your dreams remind me of one I had not too long ago. I was trying a new doughnut place that had the best doughnuts, and I found out the owners were sacrificing people to the old gods in exchange for them. I could've saved the next victims, but instead I was like, "Just one more doughnut..."

@cyberwitch Thank you! I'm very happy you found that page cathartic. That page and most of the comedy section is me letting off steam over things that have been boiling my blood for ages, so I'm glad someone else feels the same way about some of it! That sounds like a really fun dream. It always intrigues me how we often make such seemingly odd choices in dreams. I too tend to make a lot of callous decisions in mine.

@holeinmyheart I fully agree! It just feels insincere and even creepy when people are smiling for no reason. In a number of other countries such as Russia, it's expected for people (including women) to only smile when they have a good reason for doing so.

@fragmentandreflect Same here! I think they're an excellent source of creativity. It's amusing what sort of stories our brain can come up with when it's haphazardly reorganising our memories and creating a chaotic quilt made up of decades worth of memories in the process.

I'm delighted to see additions to the "Words/Phrases That I Hate" page -- it's one of my favorites on your site. Being a 2000s nostalgic, I especially dislike the "embrace change, change is inevitable" phrase, for obvious reasons, and it's irritating to think about how much combined time I've lost over the years partaking in the socially obligatory "How are you?" ritual at the beginning of conversations.

@lolwut I'm glad you liked the page! I'm not as much of a fan of it anymore as I honestly haphazardly wrote it while drunk because I put far less effort into the website into those early days, but it really needed an update either way. It vexes me how often "change is inevitable" is used as a reason for things (such as abysmal UI changes in operating systems and websites.)

Yes, change is inevitable, but using it as the sole/main excuse for doing something is as absurd as murdering something and justifying it by pointing out that death is inevitable. I do not and will never understand it. But, the more I live, the more I realise what a goldmine of comedy there is in just stopping to analyse how little sense many of the things that people say actually are.

Regarding the "how are you?" exchanges, I remember getting reprimanded by my father as a child for starting conversations with people by just getting straight to the point, and I still don't know what's so wrong about that. At least I'm not wasting people's time with meaningless interactions! The "how are you?" stuff is essentially equivalent to screaming "HELLO!! I CARE ABOUT YOUR WELFARE!! Anyway..." at people.

I just wanted to make you aware that you may have made a typo on your Google Chrome page. You wrote "full of creativity, personality, and invalidism" where I think you might have meant "full of creativity, personality, and individualism." Just a thought. I do greatly agree with the sentiment of that entire page!

I'd like to jump on this thread too and point out that Pale Moon no longer natively supports Firefox XUL extensions. It has to be targeted at PM explicitly or else it's uninstallable. See DigDeeper's page for a link to an interesting (though terribly named) fork, Web Browser.

Thanks for letting me know, I'll fix it in tonight's update. Also @shadowm00n yes you are completely correct. God I hate moonchild's choices, but I hate every other browser even more.

@thatwhitehand I don't know if you've seen the thread about what extensions people want to see preserved, but tobin is just as bad if not worse. Turning into a real cluster. https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=26542 (see the bottom of page 4 especially)

I get it. I keep weighing what Luke Smith says vs digdeeper and spyware's sites and all I can conclude is that everything is terrible. If I can ever figure out how to get an ebuild going, maybe Web Browser will be the new least-bad for me.

Added a new page to the UFO, Discovering My Autism as an Adult, about the revelations and journey of self-discovery that I went on after learning that I was autistic ~3 (?) years ago.

@bmh, Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it. It was something that I've been meaning to write for a while but putting off out of fear of missing something.

@shadowm00n, Thank you kindly for pointing out the typo! I really appreciate it. I always try to proof read multiple times, but somehow always manage to still leave behind some dumb typos. Apparently I'm only good at finding those in things that OTHER people write. \:

shadowm00n 7 months ago

@koshka Both programming and writing have taught me that it's very easy to overlook your own logical or linguistic flaws simply because once you think it's "right" your mind kind of skips over it. It helps to take a lengthy break before proofreading, but it's not foolproof.

Got inspired to redesign the front page for the umpteenth time after listening to too many melancholic Sisters of Mercy songs. Hoping to get another Autism-related article up tomorrow but the writing process has been slower than frozen molasses lately. ):

Added a new article to the UFO, exploring the metaphor of autism and neurotypicalism being two different operating systems for the brain. Also spiffed up the 404 page so that Macula could have a fairly nice looking home.

A while back, I tried to do a coursea course that required installing an operating system onto my computer in addition to Windows. (It might have been Linux, not sure, because it was a while back, and I've only attempted it once - and I don't know much about operating systems other than Windows.) It was an older one than my current one, and it had less RAM on it. I found that the programs that came with the other

I think it was the strain of two operating systems attempting to run at the same time on the same computer, and with the RAM on the computer I was using being quite low (not even the half the GB that you get on modern Windows computers). The professor running the course was using an Apple computer and they had no problem with it. The problems the Linux
