Does /qa/ keep records in any form?

I have a little notebook I use everyday to remember and keep track of what I want to get done that day, which has the upside of being able to look back in time to see what it was that I did. For example, in the 25/07/22 section I have things like "Laundromat ✓, Sweeping X".
I also have a calendar where I mark daily constant things, for example □ is the symbol I use to track that I've taken my morning pill. Before that, I'd forget, and it was messy. This way, I can look back in time and say "ah, that's when I switched to a different dose". I also write down dates for appointments or other important tasks.
A minor extra thing is writing down individual noteworthy milestones, such as "on the 23th of September of 2022 I bought a new laptop".
Lastly, I have the weekly notes I using to bring to my psychologists, with which I can see what I was dealing with at the time. They didn't have dates though, so it took me a while to nail when exactly each session took place.

Putting all of this together, cross referencing it with logs and stuff, it lets me get a pretty clear picture of how things have gone these last three years. This isn't something I implemented all at once, but a bunch of different helpful things that at one point realized I could use to form a chronology of events, which turned out to be very useful. It gives you some great perspective on your life, I seriously recommend it.

I've been thinking of just dumping all the books I would like to read in a list so I can keep track of them. The list would optionally include a bookmark a date in which I would like to finish it (if any) as well as priority order and finished books with rating.
Personally I hate scheduling because I never really liked the idea of trapping myself into a routine from which I am preventing myself to be "free". As time went on this perception fell apart and I discovered that it's actually a good thing but by that time I was already an adult and incapable of sticking into "schedules" that I impose by myself. I wish I could improve this honestly.

I have a head with a brain in it. I let that brain take care of all the recording stuff.


Venting is nice, writing stuff by myself really helps me overcome any emotional issues I run into. Good for the timeline, too.
I... actually did not have a backup for some files, and they got wiped somehow. I think I placed them in a wrong folder and an update overwrote them. Can't recover them, gonna have to look up a bunch of stuff once again. Will make multiple backups from now on...
>Personally I hate scheduling
Same, the reason why I use the notebook rather than a schedule is because missing the timing ended up being very frustrating and I just couldn't deal with that. Writing down activities to do at any point of the day leaves you with a lot more wiggle room.


I use excel documents and text files on my computer.


I have a notebook that I write things that I should remember down in and then I rip out the page and leave it lying around my computer, so my computer is surrounded with passwords, my weight, what appointments I have etc.

Dear diary,
My three older sisters (all gamer girls) would beat me up every morning and night until I was 27 years old. It started when I was in their room as a kid and they caught me sniffing their socks on the floor. It's been decades since they last called me by my name, instead it's rude things like "sock stealer" and "cummy breath" that I keep accidentally answering to. Even when they're talking amongst themselves thinking I can't hear them they still never use my name. They just say things like "When's the last time gremlin came out of his cave?" laughingly. One time they brought our parents into my room, kicked me off the computer, and showed our parents everything that I keep on there while I stood there unable to do anything about it. My parents started calling me names too after that. My sisters take it in turns to go without shoes and the whole house smells like death for hours afterwards. I think they do it on purpose. I hate them so much. Sigh, one day I'll move out...




Thankfully, mom's twins got carried away.

Kissu! Kissu! Would you be interested in playing some Minecraft together?

Last time there was a server, people were a bit divided on whether it should be creative or survival, so I set up a basic hub when you first spawn in so you can choose which you'd rather play on. At any time you're free to head back and swap which world you're playing on as you see fit.

The server will be based on 1.16.5, but is mostly client agnostic. You can play on just about any version of Minecraft from the past few years, including Bedrock Edition - which includes phones, and consoles. But, if you decide to play on an older version, things will look a bit different since new blocks and items will be rendered as older blocks and items depending on what version you're on.

There is just one limitation to the server itself, however... Because it's a free server, if no one has been online for about 5 minutes, the server will automatically shutdown beyond my control. I typically have #qa open all day, so if the server goes down, either say something there, or make a post in this thread.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.

I kinda wonder sometimes. Why, with how Microsoft was so keen on incorporating mods into minecraft, did they only include the horse from mo' creatures and not just implement the entire mod? I remember back in the beta I played with it and it was extremely well done and I think added greatly to survival.


Yeah, I think about this every now and then. They've covered a lot of the creatures mo' creatures added, but there are a few stand out missing ones, like bears, boars, ducks, and lions. Then there's also the hostile mobs like phantoms, and ogres. Probably the most disappointing omission is the lack of unicorns and pegasuses.


I've still yet to play Minecraft. I checked out kissu's online world last year which this thread was made for, but I just never got into it. (and multiplayer seems like the worst place to learn).
I've played Terraria few times to completion, but just never got into Minecraft. I think I'm biased against 3D

Pixiv's monetization thingies of Fanbox and Booth are banning loli/shota, bestiality, rape, incest and guro starting on December 15th.
It is presumably related to monopolistic credit card companies exerting their influence the same way they did on Patreon and porn sites, but it is just an assumption as no one knows for sure right now. Note that this is for stuff sold, and not uploaded for free on the main pixiv site. Still, I can't imagine a neutral reception to this.
Put on your image-scraping boots because twitter and pixiv being stupid and self-destructive at the same time will quickly make a mess of things.

What's crude about asses? Or are you saying that only crude people have asses? Are you calling rural people crude?


Is there any risk of getting your account banned for scraping images?


No, not unless you're reuploading stuff back onto Pixiv, but why would you do that.

Personally, as long as there's nothing forced about it. I really don't care. Clearly, all members of the sexual act needs to be an adult with a mental state of being able to consent to the act with full knowledge and understanding of the act they are about to engage in.

What activities do you partake in to keep your mind up to par with whatever it was at its peak? How do you motivate yourself to stick with them? Also how do you switch your brain from just mindlessly playing video games to theorycrafting and analyzing them so that you can actually play/strategize better?

I'd say both are pretty similar, no? If you don't keep your brain fresh and active then over time you begin to lose the knowledge that you haven't been revisiting.


I heard someone mention tiddlywiki but I stick with text files. You can also try teaching people what you know.


I write down thoughts as they come, in matching notes files such as "jap notes > 1 - phonetics and writing", usually appending them to the most appropriate paragraphs within the file. Every so often I do a pass to clean and reorder these files, rearticulating its contents and updating or even deleting whatever's outdated.
I don't have a blog, but I'd like to write some books, and that's what I try to gear it towards. Very WIP, though.

>How does /qa/ retain their knowledge?
what if I don't?


My to approach to keeping a brain fresh would be to keep feeding it fresh stuff. Things that arent revisited will fade for sure, but why keep it if you dont use it? And if you use it, itll stay on its own. Forgetting stuff in itself isnt a sign of mental degradation, is it?

Do you watch things that are in your native language with subtitles on? I find that even with things where I don't have any trouble hearing what's being said that I often still watch with subtitles.

The audio is mastered for movie theaters. So, the quiet parts are supposed to be completely audible and the loud parts are supposed to be extremely loud, but obviously no one has the same audio set up as a movie theater or wants to listen to things that loud so you inevitably end up with awful audio mixing for home viewing.


Why don't they remix it for the home release?


Because of 7.1 surround audio snobs.

I find Claris singing the OP to Lycoris to be, in a meta way, very symbolic. Insofar as every anime I can remember them singing the OP to has been a roller coaster of entertainment from Oreimo to Madoka, and just as well Lycoris is following in those footsteps to become a favorite of mine for how lovably enjoyable it is. It doesn't tackle any unprecedented new grounds of storytelling to earn its fame; instead, the show simply follows a fairly conventional plot with extreme care and effort put into making it the best it can be. Putting its characters at the top of the priority list and endearing the audience towards them through great on-screen chemistry & development. Which by all means has been a resounding success given the anime's popularity and abundance of fanart enjoyed by the main characters.

Hopefully the success of originals like this push for more studios to try their hands at creating something of their own in the future. As I really have enjoyed recent ones like Odd Taxi and Megalobox too.

I think the general concept of using a Bola gun as a non lethal gun was taken from Death Stranding

Yeah, I was going to say that I was sure they existed in some form


File:FhTuNIdUcAAnwEB.jpg (560.75 KB,2560x3840)

In retrospect, Lycoris had really endearing characters but was kinda weak everywhere else. Still love Chisato & Takina


Well, maybe not weak SoL/Animation. Those were pretty great too.

In fact, TF2 is even quoted as a prominent example of it in the Wikipedia article, alongside Tencent.

I think we have completely different definitions of "Games as a Service". When I hear that term, I can only think of Ross Scott and it being used to describe games that aren't technically "yours".


I've watched fifteen minutes of this and before I watch the rest I want to ask: isn't this definition based purely on legal status? It doesn't strike me as having to do with game design and its monetization like >>99256, but rather how this type of product relates to the legal definitions of other products. You don't usually see that last part being discussed. I mean, he says WoW is an actual service and not fraud because it's got a subscription fee, but you still see it all the time overwhelmingly being referred to as a live service game.


Yeah, that's why I said we were thinking of two different things.
