Today I went to an art museum. Does /qa/ like fine art?

I'll post some of the things I liked.

File:Siege_of_La_Rochelle_1881_….png (7.51 MB,3000x1705)

Trying to learn about what qualifies as high art the other day, I ran into the idea of a hierarchy that placed painting historical and religious scenes at the very top, in part due to the technical skill involved but also due to all the values associated with it compared to still life or a landscape. Very interesting stuff.
I don't know how pic fits into all of this, but it's a painting I REALLY like. It makes Richelieu look so powerful in the middle of a very dangerous situation, with the burning ships and rowboats placed inbetween the spikes alongside the mobilized men in the background on the left. His position at the center standing out with his red and black, the posture, even the reflection beneath him, it's just perfect.


I always thought The Swing was rococo...

Abstract art isn't (necessarily) worse than representational, it's just different. Trying to compare a Caravaggio to a Picasso is like comparing a novel to a poem.

I really like this sculpture of Pope John Paul II being hit by a meteorite. It is very funny to me.

>I always thought The Swing was rococo...
I think you're correct. Some places characterize Rococo as being a sort of sub-movement of Baroque, specifically late Baroque artwork, but The Swing is definitely Rococo.

A breath of fresh air after the barren wasteland that was Winter, I'm actually looking forwards to a lot of the things airing this coming Spring. From only the short runthrough I've done I was able to immediately spot:
-Megu anime
-Mahoutsukai no Yome S2
-Witch from Mercury S2
-Tengoku Daimakyou
And the rest look like they could have potential as well, as I didn't write off most of them from the title. So is there anything in particular /qa/ is looking at?

A somewhat happy problem to have is that /qa/ threads don't live as long as they used to or I'd link the /qa/ thread someone made for it back then. There are posts about it in the mecha thread at least: >>68627
Or... feel free to make a thread for it! There were quite a few fans of it here and I also watched all of it (it was in seasonal stream) so there are people around to talk about it for sure.

"Weeb" or "Otaku", which would you prefer to be called? How do you feel about one word or the other?

i used to not really care either way, but now i feel like "Weeb" has too much of an ironic "WOW I like ANIME, i'm so TRASH" connotation, which i don't really like.

Do you play any online games you'd like to play with kissu people?
Maybe this could be a thread to play some games together online? I think the stuff should ideally be free, cheap, or already have multiple players here.

Personally, I'd like to start playing Power Bomberman together again. It's a free fan game it's really fun, featuring a crapload of characters (including the new slutty ones) in beautiful pixel form and lots of cool maps. We had a thread for it about a year ago.
You can play it offline too, if you want to practice.

So, what multiplayer games do you want to play?

There is no reason why it shouldn't work in v1 with minimal effort. Emulator devs have been acting like sellouts for years with this BS. They all want to cash-in on the 20+ years of work done by others with some netcode additions they didn't even write and a few modifications. They refuse to release source code anymore or play fair with the greater community. They even keep exploits for softmodding to themselves now and shill for companies like Nintendo. The Nintendo emulation scene is the worse to be involved with. They actually go so far as to dox people sharing copies of ROMs and add malicious code to their emulators and loaders to prevent people they deem bad from using them. The old upsidedown Wii homebrew channel fiasco is nothing compared to what they're doing now.

I basically want to build a similar account/registration system like fightcade did and hook it into every emulator I can. That way you could enjoy some TvC for Wii alongside your KoF98 on Neo-Geo or your 3rd Strike on CPS2. You could challenge people or have real match-making and leaderboards. The "killer feature" of fightcade is the global account system. There is absolutely nothing unique about the underlying emulation.

What I would do is clean up the interface and release game packs. Start with like 5 games Fightcade doesn't support. Slowly add support for their more popular games like 3rd Strike. If you can get the 3rd Strike players to migrate you've captured 90% of their community. It wouldn't be hard to improve upon their emulation of 3rd Strike and the crappy matchmaking set-up they're using (that's broken most of the time anyway). Fightcade v2 is effectively still a beta. They fixed nothing from the initial beta release. They do not even bother to test most of the games they claim to have support for. They just happen to work because the emulator they're using added GGPO support recently.

I would also run regular events around new games being released. Even have achievements and other goodies for them to encourage people to try them. That way you don't end up with 30 people playing 3rd Strike beside 100 ESLs playing KoF all day with no one else using the network.

I may make this my goal for 2024. I set a goal for 2023 and finished that by July. I'm sure I could get at least partial support up and running for BB:CF and some older games like 3rPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Can play any of these, old melty and soku are fine too. GBVS and uni are getting rollback in a couple months, can play them too if the price isn't too high.


oh hey, uni and (old) melty! i love those. i can play those as well if anyone's up for that.
i also have a lot of games i can play online on switch, but i'm not sure how many people here are into that.


How do you want to organize this then? Could just post here or use steam chat, I'm fine with either but may be slow to respond here.
Want to see if the connection is any good first, I'm from eu and most people here aren't I assume. Can host any of the games (that have rollback) I posted above for the next 6 hours or so, just say if you want to play any.


File:[Serenae] Hirogaru Sky! Pr….jpg (417.33 KB,1920x1080)

Yeah, we really should try to figure out if there's a better way to set up multiplayer games on kissu somehow. It really seems like you need some sort of live chat, but that's still not a good way to know when people are up for playing. I really have no clue how this could be done or if it could be done. It kind of works on 4chan because there's hundreds of thousands of people...

Does anyone know of a good way to clean out hard drives of unused/old stuff? I just realized that Stable Diffusion had 5gb of temporary image files that it failed to delete, but I only found them by accident. Windows 10 does have a cool thing that shows you folder sizes and you can use something like 'Anything' to search for stuff and sort by filesize, but there's still a lot of junk floating around on my drives after years of existence.
Doing this manually is really exhausting.


Hamfisted? Ehh, maybe a little bit. The love triangle thing was pretty interesting, but I didn't get the impression that the romance stuff in FF7 was that deep compared to other games, like FF8 that came right after it.
That's kind of the case in most JRPGs. It doesn't help that side content means that you mop the floor with the villain since the optional stuff is more difficult. The music is great most of the time at least.


there's WinDirStat for visualizing what's on your drives by filetype. I dunno, how is a computer program going to know that you think XYZ is useless but ABC has sentimental value? It's kind of inherently a manual thing


Agreed with WinDirStat. Good for visualizing filesize.

Zippyshare will shut down by the end of this month.
I think the impact is limited since it's meant as temporary file hosting, but a small number of files have survived for much longer due to continued downloads.
If you know some old files you want on Zippyshare like those on some DDL sites, download them now.

On the other hand, if Mediafire was to go down, the impact would be much larger since lots of files on it are now over a decade old. The same can be said for Mega due to the huge amount of files shared on it.

By option, do you mean

>An options contract offers the buyer the opportunity to buy or sell—depending on the type of contract they hold—the underlying asset

or do you mean option as in choice?


>Additionally, higher interest rates mean fewer homes on the market, as existing homeowners have an incentive to hold on to their home to keep their low interest rate.

I think this is just a case of renter's market vs buyer's market. Did I miss something?


choice. they're often times yield traps


If you're moving from a large metro to a place like Gippsland, (I moved from Los Angeles to a relatively remote South Texas city to be closer to family and lower cost of living) the lack of "things to do" may be a shocker, though both Tasmania and SE Victoria are close enough to Melbourne and Hobart itself may be enough. But you may find what people do for fun a bit of a culture shock, here it's fishing and playing and watching amateur soccer, and just from my time in aus I know regional vic and tasmanian people are obsessed principally with AFL. Gippsland is far more beautiful than where I live though, so you may find the nature-related activities more enjoyable


Also consider the politics of the place you're looking at if you give a damn.


One of the houses I was looking at had a Boku no Hero Acadamia poster and an easel with a bird they were drawing on it so they must watch BHA and draw birds for fun but another house in another area had a poster of Code Geass so that's what they must do for fun in that area.
The politics are probably related to this as well.
Hmmmm.... Where to go.

how does flow fit into all this?


File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy -….jpg (499.82 KB,1920x1080)


For me, rather than a way to relax, it's the sole way I have of gaining closer control over my own mind. I can be more patient, more understanding, less impulsive, more conscious in my decisions, and generally live life in a more aware state than I would be in if I had never started.

But I'm a diagnosed schizo, so its an absolute imperative for me. I have been fighting for control of my own mind for years, and meditation is the way I fight.

File:Serial Experiments Lain 04….jpg (227.66 KB,1512x1072)


As time goes on and we consider different avenues of potential growth or new features for kissu, the big question of "What's the best way to do this?" comes into play a fair bit. Recently I've been considering some ideas that make me think the best way to really expand on what kissu has right now is for us to set up a mini-server/pc to allow us to have these features on-site without the need to pay out the butt for expensive and really not cost-effective rental servers. With that said, I'm not necessarily the most technologically inclined of the admins so most of my ideas are wrapped up in idealism and fantasy. As such I think it'd be a good idea to bring the discussion to kissu itself to get more practical ideas and maybe expand the range of what'd make for 'cool features' to add to kissu.

At the moment, the two main ideas that I have for potential additions relate to AI and games. For games, I want something that can serve as a perpetual server for whatever it is kissu may be playing at the moment (if anything). Then for AI my idea is to host a SD webpage on a kissu subdomain, and allow people to generate images, set weights, and do whatever else you can do on the offline SD on the page. The difference between it and other variations of that idea would be that we'd allow (trusted) users to add their own Loras/Hypernetworks and whatnot so that it takes on the role of an open development project rather than being restricted and closed off from improvements.

With those two goals stated, what does kissu think the ideal setup for this would be? Preferably the budget should be in the 3-8k range (preferably on the cheap end) as we don't want to invest a fortune into something that may not even pan out to be something interesting and I don't have mega-millions.

Do you still need the expensive gpu?


File:[SubsPlease] Hikikomari Ky….jpg (391 KB,1920x1080)

Eventually, but I think I'll be waiting until Cyber Thursday/Black Friday to look at them to see if there's any crazy deals. I'm strongly distrustful of used GPUs, even if crypto mining is pretty much dead.
It would be nice if there's a discount somewhere, but I doubt there will be. Lately I've been focusing on refining the image generation side of things and a 3080 is enough for that, although it's obviously slower than a 4090.
Facebook, er "Meta" won't begin training Llama3 until next year, but it's going to have so many GPUs that training will takes days instead of months. Another advance that people are waiting for, and it's likely only a matter of time, is the ability to train text LORAs on consumer hardware so you can add knowledge to it without eating up limited prompt context.
There won't be any new nvidia gpu released in the entirety of 2024 so I don't know how prices will fare. I doubt they will go down, at least, since monopolies tend to do that.

Anyway, the reason I asked is that it would be cool to have something like what I linked on kissu somewhere, but I don't know if it's feasible.


It's feasible if I make a million dollars and can afford to spend crazy amounts on expensive server architecture and multiple 4090s. So I guess you'd better hope for a freezing winter with extreme blizzards.


File:04174-1girl,_looking_at_vi….png (1.34 MB,920x1224)

We really need an actual way to do it on kissu proper *cough*, but if you want to prompt with the merges I've made from what I've learned over the past year you can hop in [>>>/chat/580] and type commands in your post and it will generate a reply with a puu.sh link! (also my poorly documented blog for this is at >>>/megu/183 )

Start your post with: .sd or .sdK or .sdP if you want to mess around with 3 different checkpoint models that are loaded. There are actually still 2 more loaded, .sdC and .sd2 but I want to replace those eventually.
The more tags you add the less likely the "minor" ones will have an effect. I.E you can expect blonde hair to almost always work, but maybe something like 'earrings' would get ignored. AI stuff still has errors of course, but if you're like me you can ignore things like multiple vanishing points or an extra finger when you're focused elsewhere on the image. Ideally I'd like people to have a UI to do inpainting and stuff, but...

Anyway, make use of the danbooru and e621 wikis to get an idea of how you should tag things. They both allow you to click a tag on an image page to be taken to the wiki page which will include links to related concepts, like 'poses':
I've yet to do extensive testing on my newest .sd model to see which prompts it prefers.
You can also find images you like to get examples. When prompting, make sure to focus on the most specific tag and avoid redundancy. I.E a girl with a bow in her hair will often have the "bow" and "hair bow" tags, but you should only put "hair bow" if that's what you want.

.sd - My latest (and perhaps last major upgrade) merge. Not very good at character tags but it's far better at sexual stuff/genitals. My goal with these merges was fap material and it will generate great penises, even from behind. You should use booru and/or e621 tags for it. The more you use booru tags the more booru-like it will appear (less of a nose and such). I make nPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Haven and Hearth is having another world reset on october 13th if anyone is interested in playing.
The game is free and is part mmo part survival game that's a bit hard to describe but what you essentially do is progress your character, explore and build in one big persistent world.
To play you can hit play on the website or download a custom client from the forum (ender is the one I use); not much point in starting right now though as everything will be reset soon.

Is pleasure real or is it merely imaginary? We've often heard of material pleasures, bodily pleasures, etc., but as far as we are capable of knowing, it might not necessarily be anything but a mental phenomenon.
What if pleasure is just a meme? What if enjoyment does not exist? What if it's all mere poetic fancy, constituting nothing but decoration in art, pure artifice born from the inside of creative organ?
But if people do strongly enough believe in it and bring out works of art that represent this ideal very much in accordance to what they believe it is meant to be, then can it be said to come into being, or does it remain trapped on a canvas or on a piece of paper? If Man attributes the qualities of beauty, grace, harmony, balance to real objects that were created by nature, do those qualities indeed objectively typify them, or are they only assignations describing a subjective judgement, a mere product of circumstantial associations?

The World might not be objectively beautiful, but it is not objectively ugly.
