What, is the football thing over already?


More like who's posting it. Can't exactly ban minors for sexualizing themselves.

FIFA is the organization that hosts the WC, among other things. USA didn't win either, they just made it through the first round, which is why the celebration was so short-lived. It's just banter.

I need a thread to post about the Utwarerumono trilogy, specifically the anime adaptation of part 3 which has just started airing so I made this thread. Generally speaking, I'll do what I did about the stream thread here >>91605 and post art and music and stuff to share my love for this series and I hope you'll join me in talking about it!
I LOVE Utwarerumono! Do you love Utwarerumono? You should love Utawarerumono! Let's all talk about our love for Utawarerumono! This is a thread of those who love that of whose legends are sung!

Yeah, I can imagine.

Interesting. Yeah, Rulutieh is pretty good. The cooking parts are one of the things turns some people away from the games, but since you enjoyed them (I did too) there's no need to worry. She unfortunately gets shafted a bit in regards to screen time in the anime, but I guess it wouldn't make sense to devote six episodes to cooking. Well, mostly. They did include her, uh... love for fiction and it was a great episode with tons of amazing faces from her and Atuy. The serious moments including her in the anime are also lacking... I guess they had to decide on a couple characters to pass over due to time constraints and it was her and Anju.
You guys are saging the English imageboard community's only Utawarerumono thread that's about to hit bump limit! AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! I sage when I talk to myself, but don't sage when talking to other people! We need to bring more attention to Utawarerumono!

File:AI art.png (370.42 KB,512x512)


There's two threads on /qa/ for different AI generation content and help. A thread on the morality and ethics of AI. One about the future potential AI holds. One on >>>/megu/ for more in-depth help with specifics. Then scattered about across all the boards some threads using AI generation for image openers and such. However, none of these actually encompass kissu's opinion on AI!

So, what do you /qa/eers think of AI currently? Do you like it, dislike it, find it useful in any meaningful way at all? Or are you simply not interested in the output of algorithms?

I myself find AI to be a useful tool in generating the kind of content I've either exhausted the available stock of or are gated off by some hurdle I need to spend more time overcoming. When it comes to text/story generation, it's like a CYOA playground where I play the role of DM and set up all the lore/situations/characters, and then the AI acts out events as I lay out the flow of the story. This creates a more interactive experience for me than just writing out a story myself for some reason, and I find it highly addictive. Then for AI art generation, I find that AI works wonders for filling a specific niche taste I have, or specific scenario I want to create an image for. It really is quite amazing in my eyes, and I have hopes for it getting even better in the future.

Consider this: Using AI to add voices to a large RPG to cut down on costs for hiring AAA actors and also allowing for a more diverse cast of voices.


It would be cool if programmers could make entire games themselves I guess...

Skyrim's working on it. Not amazing but passable for random throwaway dialogue on pointless NPCs


For a second I thought you were talking about TES6 and got really excited. But that's nice too, just think that to seriously get the ball rolling for these developments you're going to need one of the big studios putting resources towards research into how to implement this well into their games so modders can have a good reference point.

Welcome to the new Internet, same as the old one.

As of today PHP7.4 no longer has any security support provided by the language developers. If something breaks, it's staying broke.

probably not much because most sites are not owned by professionals, rather photographers trying to make a homepage for example. But I believe a lot of the spam comes from compromised servers.

So the effect of PHP disregarding certain versions makes Wordpress' job harder which negatively impacts the entire internet. Most websites on the internet are wordpress and WP is the most attacked engine anywhere


File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy -….jpg (269.37 KB,1920x1080)

Does wordpress have no plans to upgrade then or am I too stupid to understand this? Or, do people have wordpress sites and they choose to use PHP over other things?
When I think of a wordpress site I think of a basic blog format which I assumed didn't requre programming knowledge, something functional but basic. The one that comes to mind immediately was the MoyaiSubs one which I followed for Mewkledreamy subs.


File:[Commie] Bishounen Tanteid….jpg (250.2 KB,1920x1080)

If security issues are such a concern, and keeping up to date with the latest PHP version is so important to keep one's code secure. Why do the PHP devs make it so upgrading are always breaking everything and require immense effort to actually upgrade code to the latest version?


>Most websites on the internet are wordpress
can they afford to migrate to something else or everything going to break heptadimensionally?

It's not just PHP, this is the same for most of the "scripting" languages like python and lua. They don't have the mentality to keep backwards compatibility.

Hmm, maybe it's the style. The faces are quite intense with lots of > < eyebrows so you might perceive it as angry.
Anyway, here's one of sir's comics made for /fit/ which it reminded me of: https://desu-usergeneratedcontent.xyz/fit/image/1483/24/1483242762425.jpg I don't think it's mean, but it has a juvenile style to it that could be perceived as harsh, but I think it's just cartoony.

I'm strongly considering getting Project Diva on Steam since it's on sale for the autumn sale. (Also there's an Steam autumn sale going on)

Over 170 songs and there's a modding community of people that have added songs from other Miku games into it as well as new songs entirely such as from newer artists like PinnochioP, but don't get too excited since I assume it's just the overlay on top of the pre-existing music video if not a static image. Still, very cool! Also people mod the outfits and models and stuff as you'd expect.
Sadly, from what I've heard there's no options to hang out with the vocaloids in their rooms. That was such a hugely charming part of the games and it's a huge disappointment that it's not there.

Yeah, if someone is going to want to use a fork of Arch you don't want to go with Manjaro. Try Artix (no systemd), ArcoLinux, and/or if you need something more user friendly then I suggest EndeavourOS well over Manjaro. Either way, Manjaro fucking sucks.


>Either way, Manjaro fucking sucks.
Why? I used it for a while and liked it.


I was experiencing the same problem, since I didn't have oomkiller enabled. This was a major annoyance for me but it seems like it's fixed


It beats having to switch to something else so sure, I'll try and see how it is.

On Ubuntu, which tries to be a real OS instead of your hacky garbage distro, this oomkiller has, annoyingly, caused various server processes to terminate mid action, so I had assumed that Debian was the same thing.
But thinking about it, I don't think I've seen it show up in my syslog ever after switching everything to Debian.


>NPM build
I think running a build system is your problem. my Windows machine makes everything else run slow when I click the build button in Visual Studio. People write build systems and compilers assuming that you want the programs to finish their work as fast as it can possibly be done.

I disagree with the part about not giving any rebuke to differing opinions if you disagree with them. This should be the way in which you get others to adopt your own view and create a nicer environment for yourself. Given everyone is acting sincere, that is. At least, I like to do this on places I care about. If it's some place I don't even use then yeah I agree.

No, but either Mark Zuckerberg or another giant megacorpo will own your personality and all of your traits through algorithms to create a AI version of yourself after you die that they control for eternity.


Eternal life, but at a great cost...


What's worse is what if computing becomes so powerful in the future it could trap our very essence into that AI program forever?


I guess it depends if it would have what we could refer to as emotions and such. An AI of me that follows what it interprets as my actions to things could be cool, like a living memory of my existence, as long as it wasn't suffering or something.

File:[SubsPlease] Bocchi the Ro….jpg (155.74 KB,1280x720)

I want to see Bocchi happy, too, but she does seem to be advancing extremely rapidly. At times it feels like she's a different character.
I suppose it's a question or not you can accept it as an acceptable part of fantasy to see a character change so fast. It's easy for some people, including myself, to see themselves in her, so maybe people put too much weight on it when it seemed like it was going to be a cute girl show and not a dark one.
I think it's not so much that people want to see her fail as much as they wanted to spend more time with a character they felt a shared bond with as an awkward, asocial recluse. I guess a bad comparison I could make is when the first episode of an isekai is awesome and you want to see more of that world, but then the isekai part happens and it's a let down.


File:a4f7a9b4e2144524656932520c….jpg (1.21 MB,2150x1900)

Boochi has the determination that hikki will never have.
Bocchi practiced guitar for several hours every single day and became very good at it as a result, all just because she thought that it would bring the attention she wanted deep in her mind.
It's this determination which Bocchi always has that allows her to take the initiative and overcome her social anxiety at key moments.
However, at other situations, Bocchi still reverts to her normal mode of passiveness and anxiety which I'm not seeing much change for now. This is the whole point of Bocchi related gags after all.


>hikki will never have.
Speak for yourself, I'd been devoting my whole days to learning Japanese and programming throughout my hikki life in hopes of something better....

Does /qa/ play Tabletop RPGs?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


only thing i've managed to find is online 5e...
we ended up ending the world.......
yeah there are platforms like roll20 or fantasy grounds
apparently tabletop simulator too


I've never played a tabletop RPG but there's a board game called Munchkin which is about only the fun parts of D&D. Unless you were talking about real-life commitments.


Not very often because I'm not too social, but when I did it was pretty fun.


There's various ways to play them online, but they all come with their own caveats and I imagine nothing is ever going to be as good as just doing it in person. Roll20, Fantasy Grounds, Foundry, Tableplop, and Tabletop Simulator are some of the virtual tabletops available, but you could even make do with pure text chat depending on the game. I suppose the other hurdle is finding people to play with. Some of these have listings for public games that you can join, but playing with actual friends would almost always be better.

Right now it seems to be a good time to build a PC:
CPUs and GPUs are coming back in stock.
GPU price dropped to MSRP, thanks to the end of GPU crypto mining.
New generation, low availability technologies are cropping up like PCIe 4, DDR5, RTX 4090, AM5 socket, diverting consumer attention away from previous gen.
M.2 SSDs are cheaper than ever, and will be even cheaper in the near future because of flash memory chip oversupply.

What does /qa/ think about building a PC now?

/qa/! /qa/! I bought parts!

My keyboard's ] key finally died and my i key was heading that way, so I bought a new keyboard. I switched from brown switch to blue and boy these are pretty loud. I really love how it feels, but I'm feeling unsure about the sound. It's also a slightly different spacing so my typing is going to be full of errors. Actually from now on in this post I wont' wcorrect my typos. It's a Corsair K95 RGB Platinum XT Mechanical Gaming Keyboard!

My power supply was eight years old and making too much noise, so I think it was on the way out. It's called "coil whine" or something. Anyway, I got a newpower supply! Corsair RMx Series (2021), RM850x!

I replaced my old crappy default CPU cooler because I always hated it, but procrastinated getting an upgrade until now. It's a ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports DUO!

Finally, I was holding off on there being a "deal" (deal in quotations because no nvidia card can be called a deal) and bought a 3080 12GB for $750 which I'm feeling cnostant guilt over. AARARRGGGHGHHAUJSDHAUSJKHDKAS! It was so much money! But it's "normal" price if you were able to find it new like I did during the holiday sale was about $900, so I feel kind of happy aobut that.

HOWEVER! Apparently my secondary monitor, my faithful Korean monitor back when those were a huge fad for nerds to buy is considered obsolete and GPUs don't have D-DVI ports any more??! I looked it up and even with an adapter it makes it laggy and most adapters are made for 1080p when my monitor is 1440p. This sucks! So now, unfortunately, I have to spend money again and get some new monitor to use because having one monitor is TERRIBLE! I hate this. It's a good monitor and has given me no problems at all. I have to abandon it because GPUs can't spare on eof their 4 ports for D-DVI?! This is infuriating.
Sigh, so here I am looking around to see if ther's any lingering "cyber Monday" deals on Tuesday.

Personally I stay with red because it's easy to press and reduces fatigue.

>bought a 3080 12GB for $750
Which did you upgrade from? For AI stuffs VRAM is more important than raw speed and my 2060 super already has 8GB so anything less than 16GB isn't much of an upgrade for me. I would wait until mid range cards with low power consumption start to gain more VRAM.

>I looked it up and even with an adapter it makes it laggy and most adapters are made for 1080p when my monitor is 1440p.
Is that true? Your GPU should have DisplayPort which I think is pin-compatible with DVI-D so passive converters work and don't degrade signal. HDMI is the one that has problem.


File:[SubsPlease] Bocchi the Ro….jpg (140.41 KB,1280x720)

I had a 2060 with 6gb and that 6gb bothered me even before the AI stuff because the card I had before it was some special EVGA one that had 8gb, so my VRAM actually went down when I upgraded to the 2060. I couldn't use the Monster Hunter World high resolution texture pack and that bothered me quite a bit. Well, I took a personal look at the textures and a lot of the textures were a mess and it wasn't worth the 8gb anyway, but that was besides the point. I was bottlenecked by VRAM back in 2020 or 2019 or whenever Monster Hunter World was.
>Your GPU should have DisplayPort
Ah yeah, I got these confused. I was looking at DVI to DisplayPort. The basic ones for 1080p are $10, but the ones that support 1440p are $50 or more https://www.amazon.com/3D-CAC-1010-DisplayPort-Dual-Link-Adapter/dp/B07T16LLB8
I need the "active" adapter type that uses a secondary USB port to draw power and even then apparently it's laggy and they're known to degrade over time while having other issues :


i have fun gaming on outdated hardware


>even with an adapter it makes it laggy
If I'm remembering right, DVI-D should allow for passive conversion to HDMI.

Four years of Kissu!

You are cordially invited to the annual streaming of Tsukuyomi Moon Phase, the namesake of this corner of the internet known as Kissu!
Kissu was born on December 1st, 2018, and since streaming is done on weekends for the benefit of those people that have things known as "lives", the stream will start on Friday, December 2nd at 6PM EST/11PM UTC.*
Currently the plan is to watch 13 episodes on the 2nd and then 13 more (12 + OVA) on the 9th, which is what we did in previous years. However, I'm also open to splitting it up into 3 weeks since 5 hours of streaming is a pretty long time.
Questions? Comments? Neko mimi modo?

*Timezones are a major pain and sadly some people will be left out, but if there is enough interest maybe someone can organize a stream for the Eastern hemisphere and I could provide you with the stuff you need.

I made this stuff: https://natashaskitchen.com/beef-soup-kharcho/
It's a beef soup thing from Georgia (the country) but with readily available ingredients over here in the US instead of regional stuff.
It was pretty good, but I added too much dill and it was really strong. I didn't think dill had much of a flavor, but I guess the fresh stuff is completely different


I make coffee and browse the internet until someone finally makes me some food.


Used one of those grocery delivery service to get a bunch of stuff from Costco. The poor delivery guy got kind of lost which I feel bad about, but at least I didn't have to go to the store myself...


A good idea for whenever it's cold is soup. Love soup.
