I saw lolwut at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my sho

pping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the

counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Am I officially an Internets celebrity now?

Yes, which is like being a real celebrity with all of the downsides and none of the benefits.

I feel that at some point, Microsoft developed a militant obsession with being as insipid and boring as possible. Nu-Office for instance, has no themes beyond "white, grey, black, and white with one dull colour tone". Outlook and nu-Windows look like they were designed by a pathologically unimaginative toddler. I miss the colourful Windows XP interface, and even moreso the creative and fun world of Windows 98 Plus!.

The steady encroachment of Linux and Mac into a world that was once almost entirely dominated by Windows, is just a glaring symptom of how much the Windows OS has deteriorated since the glory days of Windows 98 and XP. Windows 10 is a disgrace in every way, and I do not blame anyone for moving to Linux (Chrome OS and Mac are still worse in my book.)

I remember discovering Desktop Destroyer through JayIsGames as a kid. Maybe if you make a $5 Patreon I can pay you to rant about it while you doxx your financial details. Now these types of novelty games are dead and all we can do is circle the drain with Flash game nostalgia compilations on YouTube. When new technologies grow old and we lose the novelty of getting to experience them, so too do we lose our sovl.

Koshka, sometimes I think that the entire flat design thing was conceived as a way for UI/graphics designers to get away with being lazy and/or unskilled in their work. The current Microsoft logo looks like it was put together in five minutes; even I could replicate it in less time using nothing but MS Paint. As for Windows 10, I would sooner jump ship to Linux, and this is coming from a life-long Windows user.

Froge, nearly everything I like and care about is growing old these days. I find that I can't feel much enthusiasm for many new things, so I turn to reminiscing about the old things; even if they no longer produce any feelings of novelty, at least I have my memories of those feelings of novelty I experienced in the past, and, for now, this is enough.

lolwut, excellent observation. It would explain why so many programs and websites are adopting this sort of design. Probably helps that companies can save on hiring costs because even the bottom of the barrel of UI designers can create something in the style of nu-Windows. I completely relate to your feelings about everything good growing old. There's a plethora of video games from the 90s that I still adore,

yet I'm lucky if I can find one new one that piques my interest for more than an hour. Even when something new comes out that genuinely enthralls me, it's inevitable an extension of an old childhood obsession of mine (Dragon Ball Super for instance.) I blame normiefication for the abysmal quality of the modern Web, modern games, and so on.

Congratulations on your new Tor mirror! Good forward planning in this tumultuous era of censorship and cancellations. I'm also very happy to see that you finally have your own snazzy button, and I have updated the links on my own pages to reflect it.

Why won't you mirror your site here too?

lolwut 1 week ago

Robert, I considered this, but ultimately decided against it. One of the reasons I switched hosts was that the new one allows the use of PHP to construct Web pages, which greatly simplifies the task of maintaining the site, whereas Neocities does not allow it, even with the supporter plan. If I were to mirror a static version of the site here, it would defeat the whole time-saving purpose of using PHP.

I appreciate that you'll still be updating your Neocities page and keeping your account around. Out of pure curiousity, do you mind elaborating on why you're moving away from Neocities?

It wasn't due to any fault on the part of Neocities, which overall is still an excellent Web host. The main reason was that the new service provider is actually run by a friend (who is also a veteran imageboard user) who had been gently urging me to switch over; other reasons included a more permissive content policy (though Neocities' ToS/AUP is also not bad) and not being limited to static Web pages only.

Also, as another small bonus: the new host's servers are based in Russia, the copyright laws of which, according to my friend (a Russian), are "non-existent". He even explictly wrote on his hosting service's copyright policy that "No DMCA takedown requests will be accepted". :^)

Thank you for the detailed explanation!! I was honestly concerned that there was something sordid going on with Neocities that I wasn't aware of, so I'm glad that wasn't the case. That does sound like an excellent deal, and I may very well have chosen them over Neocities if I knew of them before I made this account.
