Forum Fuckery related: Is there a quote limit or something? Says the text box is empty and can't post anything if I have all of the quotes in there. But if I remove just one quote, it works.

I dunno, for a few weeks the only way I can enter any response is by "quote" instead of direct "reply". Even then I still have to ritualistically press a bunch of random keys in rapid succession just to get a text prompt. I see it as a commentary on the nature of creativity  :lulz:

What OS/Browser are you using?

Obsolete ones, however I can..not...resist...  What's it to you? :lulz:

I diagnose, study, and solve IT problems for a living. And I'm obsessed with and addicted to the puzzles and the various ways in which they present themselves. Work has been boring me lately because the problems aren't complicated or new anymore.
Kewl, I like how the current git-hub master-branch paradigm works, it's just I can't be bothered with constantly looking over my shoulder to see how some new automatic OS update effectively nuked everything in /usr/local. Meh, don't even get me started with audio VST's. My next upgrade is gonna be an actual time-machine.

Evil genius taps DeRPA to fund R&D for new rehabilitative neural implant technology. He thinks they will not see how trivial it will be for him to subsequently reverse the implants function, to make its users serve him, world dominion etc. DeRPA sure didn't really never see it coming, because evil-genius was actually patient zero of said experiment.  Making him believe he-himself had invented the technology was "proof of concept".

Life starts at conception like death at fertilization.





Cause I can't get no...  Satisfaction.

51
If every fertilized egg is already a fully-formed human, then every human life has also already become death.  Therefore, every human is already an abortion.

[not my finest hour in thought ]

I like it. Saw the vehicles on a grid backlit by muted neon. City became circuit board, route log turned into cookies, then dog biscuits. Very fun.

That sounds a bit like the plot of In the Mouth of Madness
kind of like that, except that there is no written text. more like a west-world scenario but the programming occurs with images and video instead of strict code.

The protagonist slowly realizes that his narrator dropped subtle clues, or, debriefings, conditioning his eventual return to the realization of how his actions have been pre-determined by a capricious author.

Hi there Faust, I tried the https, and then could not input reply.  As for private browsing, the logs may show me using safari or whatever, but it's not really, no private browsing option. Just pathologically high levels of compartmentalization right here... Anyone know what this "BAIL" lever does in the airlock?

We're no longer the Worst Forum on the Internet.

Sad!

 :crankey: WHO'S SPREADING THIS FILTHY GARBAGE??!!!


Forum's half-working again for me, toxicity levels back to near diabolical.  Got the formatting back, just can't see any profile pics no more.  Fine with me, and, apologies for the temporary loss of stature that occurred pendant my absence.  I make a point of reputation, serious business that is.

Re: Lazarus Bug.  Yea, they could cluster and form networks around sense organs.  Activation could occur in proximity to any microwave signal that also serves to power them, given small-size/distribution.  Otherwise, power kinetically via flexible piezo-electric diodes round joints...


And then...  Seems like nothing to do about getting this particular computer to interface with forum correctly.  Not catastrophic, just html'd php with no formatting.  I figure that since Googlee images stopped working last month, this is probably permanent.
Nothing more to report, will try to find my way back to the last thread, white sails and all.


58
Eh, I think it might finally be curtains for me and this site: php just went full HTML.  I am writing this onnwhat looks like 2pt font in unformatted cells.  This is why I no longer write about breakdowns.

being mindful:


I liked the train analogy w.r.t. tracing provenance of thought.  Then the distinction between zen zoomed-in single-pointedness of mind and "split attention" exercise made me think about how "awareness" in our western interpretation typically favors the first interpretation and sometimes neglects the latter. When the former is understood by way of an analytic breakdown, it tends to think the point of being mindful is at the end of dissecting and categorizing the various elements of consciousness that were made present by "interrupting the train of thought".  I find this misleading because it neglects how the experience being observed is functionally different to the one occurring before the act of interruption.  No worries, because the important bit to me is that this still allows me to discern that there are different ways of interacting skillfully with the world.  The western thinker who takes this on is Heidegger, with his distinction between the ready and the present to hand.  If I want to know what it means to write (type, and how) it is difficult to analyze the experience as it is occurring as it would occasion a 'break' in the flow of the activity that represents it.  When the keyboard itself fails, breaks-down, and I am presented with the obstinate refusal of it's function, then I start to analyze the keyboard, take it apart, put it back together.  Yes, the keyboard investigated by breakdown is going to be examined and rendered in detail.  The argument, however, is that this is not (phenomenologically) the same keyboard that I use to write.

So there are really two different trains, most of the time I don't even know which one is mine.

Right.  Freedom not as the trivial this or that. Freedom as Are you fucking kidding me, this can mean anything at all to me, in the first place!?!
