Well today in most of the world is Halloween, All Hallows Eve, or Nightmare Night. The spookiest and candy filled day of the year. And just around the corner is even more holidays, major and minor, for the next couple of months.

As much fun as it is it can also be a ton of stress, so please be sure to take care of yourself if you're feeling tired or stressed out, take some time to relax and just enjoy the festivities if you can, and be sure to keep warm with a hot drink of whatever beverage you enjoy the most.

We live in a society

...but do skeletons

...even if there is a skeleton society, do they "live" in it

all i know is the bones are their money



Le gasp. Teeth are bones.

Therefore... the spooky scary skeletons are actually Orks in disguise?

It's that sort of season.

I mean it's a bad look to fire people right before Christmas, therefore if you're going to this year, gotta do it in November.

I'm spookying okay. Just chilling in a blanket that my cat decided to sleep under



It is. And what if, novel idea

bad things

Well I had to stop it sadly so I could get on my work break and then in a bit work on my art challenge for the week


Narrative convenience

A SPOOKY art challenge?



Imagine not just having the 1st of November off, and therefore not just taking the 31st of October off too to make it a long weekend. It sounds pretty spooky.

I shall enjoy warming myself with that thought around my poverty wages. You want some fries with those lines of code?


Oh please, elaborate. I'm sure you can do better.

For example, I can be stopped by distracting me away from what I was doing. Here's a song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6EkRaEQ2Pg

Almost normie, BUT! It features a skull AND bones.

Yep, prompts are Candy.. and bones!
Now to think of what to draw

Ah, it's truly a fun shame. too bad Halloween is more evening or maybe a day off would be happening



Yeah, how can you even party properly if you don't have a day afterwards to recover? And if you're recovering at work, as many people are bound to be doing anyway, why not just let people have that day off, to increase morale for an overall productivity gain at a negligible productivity loss in that particular moment? Things are organized silly in the US, very much.


File: 1667250829576.png (326.2 KB, 2880x2880, 1:1, Annoyed_AUD.png) ImgOps Google

Well I definitely can't argue too much with that thought


Candy striped bones, duh!

Okay, I put a parental block on your computer so you can't look up spooky videos on YouTube,  and ban you from Ponyville so you can't post these scary scary spoilers!



Wow that's some weaksauce.
1. The video I linked would still get in by a technicality of being a pirate ballad rather than spooky
2. I do have a VPN which I can use for ban evasion and you know it from the last time, heh


If I ever move out of Poland, it won't be to the US. But that's a story for another day. For now, well. There's another weekend in like 5 days, get that candy stockpile going


Rats, foiled again!

Haha, yeah I can't blame you there



I guess if I want to e-party with US people I should look to the weekends huh. Not even Actual Holidays are good enough.


Rats... like on a ship! Totally a reference to what I linked, I'm sure.

Ah, cool. A new Circuit thread during Halloween.


Do iiiit

Yeah, yeah, let's say that's what it was



Rats ARE classically placed on ships. Except when those ships are sinking.

Indeed then, let us say it is what it was then, so the ship won't sink.

But then, is there even a ship? Can a ship sink if it never existed?

What is the least cruel fate for the crew, here? Deciding one way? Or the other? Or leaving it up to them? What if they can't figure it out, and are left out sailing for an eternity, not knowing if they even exist or if they're just thoughts in the heads of the crews they encounter?

I feel like we're playing with ghostfire here.


File: 1667252828939.png (335.53 KB, 2880x2880, 1:1, Neutral.png) ImgOps Google

Honestly it would depend on the holiday itself. There are some that are time off, though yes middle of the week would leave some without being able to go all night

Aye, never know when a special one will happen

Fine fine, I'm already workign on it in fact



Well there's the middle of the week, and then there's the beginning of the week which seems like it's even worse. And looking at when Halloween is this year, that's... about right there.

You guys really need to get some EU-style vacation regulations in there, seriously. "Muh productivity tho" - overworked people aren't productive.

Honestly it's no wonder we're so stressed and angry all the time

Well, best way in a way that I'm not overwhelmed with everything. I'll still keep up on big events and voting and such



Sure. Ultimately that's the only real lever available. Too bad the "choices" tend to be between "shitty status quo" and "actively harmful clownfiesta", making it not much of a choice at all.

Oh well, lets leave it aside. Got any fun Halloween tune on hand? I don't think I have any at all.

Sounds like a perfect way to finish a mission



I meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeean the mission starts with two of your characters being kidnapped as the other three are left in a situation where they're about to be executed (luckily by a trio of enemies who are rather inept). Those three break out, of course, but then of the two kidnapped one is put on a ship and carried off who knows where. The mission is then to save the other one, and to see if she knows where he was taken - but that technically means that as I was sneaking about, the ship has been getting away all this time. Not actually, since the game doesn't account for it, but spending time on a slow and methodical sneaxtermination of an entire village's worth of enemy soldiers doesn't quite gel with the story here, heh.


ooooh, sounds delightful

Well, there will be an LGBT social event somewhat locally at 7pm, but it requires over an hour to drive over there as well as over an hour to drive back when it's done.

After spending basically all of the morning playing this video game (yes, I know, not the best decision), kind of not having the endurance... eh...

Wouldn't it be nice if instant travel was a thing?

Anyways, what will you peeps be doing for the rest of the week?


Live show on saturday, that's about it


I will probably go to a Thursday evening event that's also a big deal to drive to and from but that I feel would be quite right for me.

I honestly regret skipping out from the Wednesday thing.

So Youtube ReVanced is pretty cool

Eh. Same old evening doldrums, really. That's how exciting things are.





Everyone's heard of youtube premium, right? It's basically pointless on a computer where you can just slap an adblock on (...for now, but that's another story) and you're good to go. Not so much for mobile devices, where the basic client is crippled and you can't easily add your own extensions. Well, everyone might have heard of it, but not everyone heard of Youtube Vanced (see, it's a joke: ADvanced, with no ADs), which was basically a hacked youtube client that was free but actually even better than youtube premium. That slowly started to change though, with Vanced slowly growing in popularity.

So obviously Google went ahead and killed that project with their lawyers.

Predictably though, some time later... https://github.com/revanced


File: 1667945394446.png (47 KB, 193x230, 193:230, Twilight blanket and coffe….png) ImgOps Google

oh? Sounds interesting

Just recovering from a wild con weekend and cleaning all the fun stuff

Been a fun time


Sounds like it. Glas you enjoyed yourself.



It is! See [ >>1131122 ]. After the latest Vanced version stopped working for me I was looking for something to replace it with, and I recently tried ReVanced and even though it says it's in alpha, it seems to be pretty cool. It's got a more messy install process than Vanced had, but otherwise it seems to be on track to being even better than it was.


File: 1667946629675.jpg (116.34 KB, 894x894, 1:1, 130480150515.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Thanks! Though I'm definitely tired and ready for a good long rest before the next big con times

Oh yeah, it was a good thing I got it off the Google Play Store before it was shut down



Vanced continued working and being developed after being kicked off the store. You just had to get the relevant apk directly. Revanced is similar, though the catch with it is you don't even get a client at all (so maybe that'll keep Google at bay). Instead you install the manager (also probably the MicroG thing if you don't want to mess with root privileges), feed it youtube's own apk, and then it creates a tailor made revanced apk out of that for you to install, with modifications of your choice from an already pretty large list. I put sponsorblock in mine for example, because sponsorblock is great.


Heh, well, I got the horror film festival next week to look forward to at least.

And right after buying tickets for that I ind out both the Grumps and Weird Al are coming to Denmark next year.

...which they announce leading up to the holidays.

During an energy crisis.

Time to go sell some kidneys.

Ah that's fair. Alright looks like Ill be doing a little phone poking later this evening.
Honestly my only real gripe is I couldn't full screen the original vanced on my phone

OOOo that sounds awesome good sauce fun times

oh gods on both parts. I hope you can make them both. That sounds amazing!


I saw both before last time they came here, but I reeaaaaally wanna again.

And you should! They both deserve multiple watches



I don't remember that ever being a problem with Vanced for me, but I kept up with the off-store updates so maybe that was something that got fixed along the way. Anyway, I just checked and my custom Revanced client goes full screen no problem, but I MIGHT have selected an option for that as I was generating it? I don't quite recall. Ah well, hope it works for you, it being an alpha and all.

Sadly that part doesn't surprise me as much.


It's weird though, it's the same venue the Grumps were in last time, and that was their Player 3 tour with Sean, but it's WAY pricier this time from the looks of it.

Al I kinda get, he's in a much bigger venue than las ttime, but jeez.


File: 1667950098297.gif (57.01 KB, 100x100, 1:1, 130480158199.gif) ImgOps Google

Probably the cost of inflation really hitting harder, or maybe the venue people know their popularity and are willing to charge more for it


I dont fucking know man. It's just a bit of a bummer, cause the price last time would have been pretty managable this time.

I don't know either, but it also concerns me if they ever announce shows over here too.


I suppose it IS possible that the price listed now is more of a "standard" price at that place and isn't final, considering the tickets aren't fully on sale yet, but I doubt I am that lucky.

Maybe. Could be front of stage seats. It's kinda similar when I go to concerts and shows


I actually just double chekced yeah. It's the very front row, and the other seats straight up aren't listed yet, so they probably didn't finalize pricing yet and just put the event up.

Oh, a bundle, you say. As it happens so did I. Then I let it marinade in the library for a good year or so until it was Ready To Go (that's my story and I'm sticking to it), and then I played it. And that's how I know it's actually a good one, heh. It feels a bit like Mimimi were trying to make a modern day resurrection of Desperados but didn't have the license so they made this.

And it was so good they got the actual Desperados license for their next game, and really knocked it out the park then. But this is pretty excellent in its own right, despite the fact that for some reason nobody seems all that excited when I point out that it's great and it's free if grabbed right now. On one hand, eh, their loss, but on the other......

It might be considered a soup in a way, though I think it would be more of a broth unless you keep dipping cookies and stuff into it



Coffee... as soup? Now there's an idea. Here I thought "does the milk in cereal count as a broth, and if it does at what point on the way from the carton does it turn into it" was a radical topic which looked like one of those things which can start Discussions on the internet.

Indeed, I do like the discussions as it expands the different way things can be thought of. To question the reality we have and maybe discover something we didn't know.

Though I would consider milk as broth, and then the addition of cereal to be a soup since it's a broth with added elements.

Though that depends on the definition of broth to begin with.



The soup I made is a more literal soup, but then I think it still might stretch some people's definitions with how relatively little liquid it has. It could arguably be pushing towards "stew". Yet it's nothing that radical.

"Broth" defined as "the liquid part of a soup" seems like a good enough starting point, but surely it has to be refined. Like, milk can't just be "broth" by itself. Imagine a cow being milked and "broth" getting produced as a result. Or adding a "broth" to tea or coffee. Also what of the heretics who eat their cereal with water. Is pure water broth now too because of them?

There has to be more to it than that. Do you need to add an intangible to turn a liquid into broth, like a "soupy intent"? A "soupy history"? It would mean basically a secular version of transubstantiation is going on here and I'm not sure I'm ready for that, either.

Well the big question is usually the creation of broth is made through the boiling or soaking of different consumables to alter the state of the liquid to take on those elements.

So that's where the big question of milk or water being a broth comes into being, since usually you also make water INTO broth so I would think water would not quality since it's a ingredient of broth



Do elaborate

Because you are slowly descending further and further into the darkness



But if you make a bowl of heretic's cereal by taking cornflakes and adding water into them, would the water inside the bowl not then count as broth, if the milk did after this exact process? What if the cornflakes get then completely removed?


There's always a way out and right now it was with the classic "is a hotdog a sandwich" except with soup!

Corn Flakes and Kelloggs in particular.
The creator of Corn Flakes was apparently a very stringent religious person who didn't want young people... exploring themselves.

So they somehow decided that flavorful foods were causing senses to be inflamed and cause people to do dirty deeds, so they make corn flakes, a bland tasteless food to try and counter this so hands could hold more bibles, and less body parts.

Water I would still contest as being a broth since it's an ingredient of broth to begin with. It would be the same as calling a bunch of flour a cookie.

As for milk there is an argument as it is part water and part other substances, and it is made through a body which is usually heated anyway so there is a very weird argument.

Well if the cornflakes are removed, it could be considered a broth of milk and cornflake essence


You're a hotdog soup

...Corn Flakes.

>The creator of Corn Flakes (did things)

Oh that is very much just scratching the surface of what a nasty weirdo he was. He's basically why most of the US males are circumcised, and the idea was absolutely that it would prevent wankery. An unimaginable tosser.

Still, to my knowledge corn flakes specifically were invented as a health food for his health resort. Are you sure you're not thinking of graham crackers?



Upon investigating it's a bit of both. Invented for the resort, but then he went all-in on the "passion suppression" of them. My quick investigation has also uncovered his use of yoghurt enemas for a similar purpose, so yeah, very fun guy.

Yeah, the guy was a nutcase... though I wonder about graham crackers now


There's something fascinating about these maniacs. I remember when I first learned who exactly Jack Chick was.



Anyway, back onto this topic


>It would be the same as calling a bunch of flour a cookie.

See, that's also the concern with calling "milk" a broth before it hits the bowl. Also the fact that flour is just one ingredient, as is the milk, or the water. Perhaps there needs to be some mixing of ingredients and some processing going on.

Perhaps cereal isn't actually soup.


At least the most he truly accomplished was to become a meme. These guys though, you can feel real echoes of their influence.


Welp there's the connection


The rabbit hole goes ever deeper

True, true.

I just remember reading "Jack Chick genuinely believed any translation of the Bible newer than the 1600s was inherently blasphemous" and doing a double take.

ALso actually being given one here in Denmark even though these are barely really a thing here. THAT was surprising.

Well the difference is the split between milk and water.

Considering you can dry milk and get powdered milk but you can't get a powdered water I would still be able to debate that milk has the possibility of being a 'broth' while water is still just an ingredient both in milk, and in normal broth or stock

Sadly considering these nut jobs that's the only thing that went deep



>Wikipedia completely omits this information

Let's not sell what wikipedia has short. It opens with
>John Harvey Kellogg (February 26, 1852 – December 14, 1943) was an American medical doctor, nutritionist, inventor, health activist, eugenicist, and businessman.

(wait what was that second to last part)

and if you scroll down, while it does say that Kellogg isn't directly responsible for mass circumcisions, it gives that with a [citation needed]. Then it gives citations for his view that circumcisions should be performed without anestesia "as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment", while women should have their clitoral glans burned with acid under the same circumstances.

So yeah you still do get the picture of the absolute, unimaginable scumbag he was.


Oh the old King James Bible is the one true Bible, that one never gets old. It is the true original, you see! And absolutely not an imperfect translation of another text.

Ooooh, nice. The best I got was a random Jehova's Witness magazine.


S'true. But at least we have the laughs.

It was just like, this kind of extreme evangelism is super rare here. I didn't even know danish transaltions of them existed.

Hilariously though the guy that gave it to me seemed embarassed to do so and skittered off like IMMEDIATELY.



The funny thing is that the Catholics until the XX century would use a Bible in Latin (the Vulgate), which is so incredibly much more OG than the KJV. But alas, the Catholics (without whom there'd probably be no Anglicanism and thus no KJV) are of the Devil.

Could be embarassment. Could be worry that there's a chance you're going to report him to the Secret Cabal Police.

Don't get me wrong, the wikipedia page lists him doing some good too, but I feel like "hey let me torture and maim children For Their Own Good because I'm a sexually repressed weirdo" kind of outweights it - and that's before we even touch the yikes that's the "Race Betterment Foundation".

It's an RSS feed generator. If a site doesn't have an RSS feed of its own but does have a relatively simple updating structure, it could be set up to monitor if something changes on that site and so make a feed for it in the form of an updating xml file it would host online good enough for RSS readers, all easily and for free. There's a bunch of other utilities like it, but feed43 had the advantage of not being overbloated garbage that somehow won't even let you do the things you need. Well, it still "works" in the sense that you can create new feeds, and the xml files will be hosted, but the site's certificate has lapsed and so now RSS readers go into a panic if you try to actually use them.

Ah, that's a pain
Always hating when a nice tool just gets abandoned and eventually no longer works



I hear rumors that its author abandoning it is connected to the war in Ukraine in some way, and that he lives in the region. If he's Ukrainian I kind of don't blame him for focusing on something else if he's even, well, alive. It's just a rumour though so who knows.

For now, the tool works, it's just that the location the xml files are hosted in is spooky. So I'm working on solutions. One was to just try different tools. That didn't work out. So today I changed my focus and am developing solutions of my own. One was a basically 0 effort thing, so I've already implemented it. If the host is what spooks the RSS reader, why don't... why don't I just have a website on my LAN where I host a copy of the xml file? So I just slapped an apache server onto the raspberry pi I have on my LAN anyway, tossed a script like so onto its crontab:

sudo bash -c "curl --interface eth0 --insecure https://node2.feed43.com/freefall.xml > /var/www/html/freefall.xml"
sudo bash -c "curl --interface eth0 --insecure https://node2.feed43.com/6022526103566444.xml > /var/www/html/egsnp.xml"

and that seems to be working nicely. I just point the reader to the raspberry's IP / filename.xml and there it is.

I'm a little delighted in myself I understood some of that coding.

Well hopefully it's not a worse case scenario situation, but at least it kinda works for now



It's just sending a curl command to be executed by bash with elevated privileges. Gotta do it roundabout like that (rather than just sudo curl) since otherwise the sudo wouldn't apply after the > and the script wouldn't be able to actually save the changes in the files pointed to. And curl, well, that's just basically a "grab the text source of that site there", which with xml being nicely all text works perfectly. Gotta give it --insecure so that it wouldn't be bothered by the expired cert, and gotta tell it to do its thing through a specific interface as otherwise it would default to going through the VPN and that's wonky at times.

Yeah still, I should work on a solution that doesn't rely on such maneuvering. I'm thinking I could just scrape the two sites myself and generate the xml on my own rather than rely on feed43.

OOo very nice. I always admire when people just go and do something about an issue rather than lament about the problem



Doing such things is always a gamble though. You have to be able to stop yourself from tinkering with it. Like I'm kind of getting the urge to. Because now that I have the source code that I wrote myself, I see how it could be improved. It's such an obvious thing, too.

At some point the amount of effort you put into creating an effort-saving measure will outstrip any savings you could ever hope to actually get over your lifetime, heh.

Not quite that since the sunk cost fallacy propells you forward because to do otherwise would make the already expended effort "wasted". This effort isn't wasted, there's just diminishing returns. Yet the improvement-making itself becomes the activity.

...I still might tinker with it further anyway. Just one more little change to fix a thing that annoys me. It'll take some hours but I GUESS IT'S WORTH IT FOR THE PYTHON PRACTICE amirite

Haha, well a little bit of python practice never hurt.

Yeah, I guess diminished returns would be it too. But it could also be the challenge of improving the code that propels you forward. I guess it depends on your perspective



But yeah the problem I have with the current iteration of the script is that it copies what feed43 did, which was to have only one item in the feed and delete the old ones. Makes sense for a free service, and most RSS readers will handle it no problem anyway.

The issue this creates though is twofold. One, if your reader isn't constantly checking the feed it might miss updates and have no idea that even happened. Two, look at that script. It picks a link for the item to be a hardcoded sourceUrl/default.htm . This is obviously a link only to the very latest strip, so once the page moves on, it becomes invalid. So even if my feed reader knew there had been multiple updates, I wouldn't. Trying to view them all would simply open the newest strip multiple times. The solution is of course to pair the item with a link to that specific strip, not to the "newest" page. But the way Freefall in particular rolls, that won't work. The newest strip will get its own special link only when it stops being the newest. You can predict what it's going to be as it follows very easy rules, but the link won't actually work until the next update drops. It wouldn't be a problem if I kept the old items though, I could just replace the newest item's /default.htm link with a targetted one when it stops actually being the newest.

So yeah, some tinkering is possible still. But I have to weight if I actually want to do it. These tiny improvements never end, a new one always appears as a "wouldn't it be nice if" option.

Aw, okay. That's enough of that fun for now. Here's a post which should clear THAT up at least with its message: >>1130287

Bravery? did... i delete you? if you are somehow also banned, please e-mail me above

i am so sorry, if something happened!!

No worries.
I think Bravery is gonna be okay.



Yeah, we're just joking around, so I'm not worried overmuch. Though a ping of life from Bravery would probably be the best to settle it.


Is there a list of bans? It'll probably be tied to IPs, but you could check it against the IPs tied to Bravery's most recent posts.

Sorry to hear you're not in good spirits. Don't worry about talking if you don't want to. I just hope you feel better



Wat did you do to it

Nothing, but when I was washing it out I looked inside it and saw it was pretty dark. I sloshed some soap into it and... Right now it's soaking in bleach and I feel very sick to my stomach


Hoo boy.

I have this powder-based drink I buy - just use powder, add water and shake, and you get near perfect flavor of your choice.

The bottle REALLY does end up looking rather gunky if you forget to rinse it.

Which makes sense and isnt really unclean or dangerous, but yipes.

Yeah, considering I've been using Gfuel in it that does pan out. I guess it's my hint to rinse out properly


Man ,I THINK I tried that one point, but  I just dunno, I didn't really feel any effect from it.

At the time it hadn't really properly reached Europe yet either, so price wsa a bit weird. I might wanna give it a try again. I love the drink sI hae now, but having some that work as Energy Drinks too would be nice.


File: 1668723822578.png (24.38 KB, 107x125, 107:125, 130497659322.png) ImgOps Google

I get a little effect, but it does taste nice too so I'll just enjoy it.

I'm thinking of getting some of their hydration mixes as well. might prove good

Basically it's like a powdered gatorade instead of an energy drink


Oooh, okay.

Yeah this company I am getting it from is just trying to emulate flavors more than a speciifc brand. Sadly, they don't actually have flavored energy drink just one that... well, tastes like energy drink.

In theory you can mix it, but in my experience that didn't work super well.

Ah, yeah that doesn't sound any sort of fun. in fact that sounds like the opposite of fun


OOo that definitely sounds worse.

Well, now I'm doing a little light sketching by pencil, and getting frustrated I can seem to do so much better on pencil and paper than digital, though I'm sure it's the tablet


File: 1668725158101.png (2.28 MB, 1249x1384, 1249:1384, yangus sketch.png) ImgOps Google

Nooot necessarily.

I know for me, sketching on tablet feels "wrong" because I am more accustomed to the natural friction of pencil vs paper. Tablet does generally feel "smoother".

It's all practice, cliché as it is.

Also, I did ksetch this earlier today. Cor blimey.

Good Cor blimey

honestly I really don't know. it might also just be how I can get a more direct response in pencil and paper as opposed to being more distant and a more indirect response.

Then again unless I pay for a display tablet of some sort I only have theories


I may need to squash and fatten him a little further, but otherwise I do rather like this.

That too - the hand-to-eye disconnect is very, very real and takes ages to get out of.

i have not played it yet myself, cause i'm working on a thing and i can't rightfully play it in earnest at this time

but i have seen plenty of reviews, and the overall general consensus is

-the performance of the game sucks

-everything else is pretty awesome

so if you can stand substandard performance, it seems as though it's a wonderful experience from what i've seen.

so i'm excited! i don't mind jankyness if i'm having a good time with everything else

That is rather severe, especially with a hot pokemon game just sitting and waiting for you


My copy came this morning! I got to play about two hours of it before I left for the festival.

I could brought my Switch of course but I won't really have time anyway and don't wanna torture myself by wanting to play it during the movies.

But really looking forward to just doing nothing just play poké on Sunday after work
