>show them the consequences as well as the how-tothe presentation is the how-to; I am the consequencesee you there anon
Good talk, dear sir
Wow, I didn't expect so many people to come out; it was a lot of fun, thanks for coming out and listening.The LUG is having a dinner meeting this coming week... you should be able to sign up for the LUG **mailing** **list** here:http://lists.ncsu.edu/cgi-bin/mj_wwwusr?func=lists-long-full&extra=lug>>9027Thanks~ Shirt: https://store.virtualself.co>What if I don't use LinuxIt's more about open-source community than Linux imo; if you liked today's thing then you should come grab dinner with us sometime!>would Linux help me run emulators and watch animu?yes and yesiirc there's a few people in the club who don't use Linux anyway, that's why it's more about the community; we had a talk two weeks ago on flashing custom android firmware, so it's really more about software and hardware and enjoying the Information Age than about what OS you use~
>>9026Was well done. Good job Yumi-kun!Where'd you get that shirt btw?What if I don't use Linux? Also, would Linux help me run emulators and watch animu?>>9026Oh okay, that sounds really fun. I've flashed CFW on consoles before, does that count?Maybe I will start running Linux, but all I know about it is two of my friends got ubuntu in middle school and started using Opera for some reason.>>9028I only have one [spoiler]6 year old[/spoiler] laptop atm, so multiple machines won't be doableI wanna make me a desktop just in case Lokasenna-chan decides to crap out on me when I have projects due. Fingers crossed for a writing competition I entered with a cash prize. [spoiler]:3[/spoiler]Arigato gozaimasu! Short fiction. My story is very... (post)modern, so I doubt I'll win, considering the judges. It's also vulgar, &c.Ideas are very hard, and in short fiction they're the bread-and-butter. I'm a bit of a day-dreamer though, so I've got a few. My problem is writing out the "aboutness" or story-stuff. I really just like playing with themes and ideas. So, it kind of helps that experience isn't really critical.If they win, I'll share them. One entry is biblical fan-fiction (very blasphemous) and the other is well... a disorienting tale about a disoriented man.Well, I'll see you next Wednesday, Yumi-kun. Thank you for the protips! Oyasumi~!
>>9027>flashed CFW on consolesthat's in the same spirit. you can maybe find a little computer to run Linux on; using it on a daily basis can be [spoiler]frustrating, especially if the machine you're depending on breaks[/spoiler] but with a little practice I think you could pull it offAnyway just start off small if you're up for a little fun; [spoiler]I can help out if you'd like, if only because you called me Yumi-kun <3[/spoiler]>>9027desktops aren't too expensive, especially if you buy the old all-in-ones that are tossed out of offices; good luck on the competiton!What kind of composition was it?Short fiction is cool; coming up with ideas to frame as stories is really hard for me because I never know what to write about outside my own experience.>>9027awesome awesome awesomelook forward to reading them :3oyasumi~
>>9028The Short Fiction Contest Committee or w/e already put up their finalists (https://english.chass.ncsu.edu/creativewriting/story_contest.php)I am not one of them TT^TTApparently blasphemous, post-modern, hallucinatory, and outright bawdy tales (within tales) do not appeal to realist/modernist writers and 19th century specialists. Who woulda guessed?No, it's not possible that I'm a shitty writer--it has to be a difference in tastes.
>>9060ur a shit riter m8
Arent you guys having a dinner meeting tomorrow?

Yumi-san you free tonight? [qtasuka.jpg]
>>9062I'll be on campus till about 7.
>>9062not free :\class class class, then HW & the tail-end of a projectI'd love to get coffee again soon!
>>9065Sounds good! I'm pretty much free after 6 most days.
I've been checking the archive, and I stumbled on something from The Wolf Web. Question to old-friends: what is this geocities lookin' ass place?Is it cool?Is it fun?
>>9033NVM I found the answer to both of my questions: no.But why does it exist?
it's just some old discussion forums for ncsu students and alumnialmost no current students use it though, it's mostly peoples in their 30s and 40s bickering
>>9035That explains a lot. It's like uncanny normie-tier stuff and 90's-tier cringeposting.
>>9035wrongo friend, I'm a current student
Happy 100 years of independence to Poland! After 123 years of forced partitioning, we've now enjoyed 100 years as our own country. Good fortune and pierogi will come to you if you comment "Sto Lat" today.
Сто лет!Poland, you are the only good thing to come out of WWI. Gibs kolbasa pls!
CTo neT!Brother may I have some pierogis
Y'all best not go about lewdin' lolis over here. I've got my eye on you.
>>9037By the gods! Not even *I* would be so degenerate as to LEWD a LOLI!How do you live with yourself?
I ran the marathon todaywhere my fellow runner howlers at
Congraduration!I used to run, but it kills my muscle growth, since I'm full-on ectomorph boy. Proud of you, AWOO~!
How fast? Im in running club and go ~7 miles @ 7 min/mile pace. Havent gone over 10 since i moved to NC. (10 miles)
>>9007I'm a pretty slow runner for all distances5k pr 20:41, 10k 43:58, half 1:33, full 3:54the one I'm the most proud of is the half, done this april. not in that good of a shape right now though
>>9008full mile in 3:54???wtf
>>9014I think that's full marathon in 3hr 54minI could be mistaken, though, I'm not a runner so idk what a plausible time range is
>>9015that makes more sense lmao
>>9015yeathe fastest marathons are just over 2 hours, qualifying for boston is 3My time is alright. For reference I finished just barely in the top 33% at city of oaks and top 40% in my PR race
Like, nerds in the south may have fond memories of fried catfish they caught themselves, homemade cornbread, college football, outdoorsy hobbies, guns, and all sorts of normie stuff...But then they turn around and say "Misato is best girl" or "All according to keikaku" or they program a knockoff Uzbekistani Charcoal Drawing forum and entitle one of the subforums "Sweet Tea Time," Or they'll make iced oolong to wash down their squirrel, or they'll say y'all...&c. It's just a bit bizarre when you see statist vaguely californian, lolsuchanerdxD bugmen on the internet, and slovenly overweight dudes at cons and in animu, but here, we've got these hybrid, roughly well-adjusted nerds who partake in subcultures associated by certain people with these undesirable types.And Maybe it's just the media.
My end goal is to spend more money on a car too fast for my own good than my kids' college tuition.
>>9012That's easy, just don't have kids and then you can spend two (2) whole dollars on a sporty HotWheels>>9011It's basically the best. There's still the bottom-shelf otaku/weebs, but there's so many people who are just down for the get down[spoiler]Not that otaku/weebs are bottom-shelf, just that we have the bottomers[/spoiler]It's also the magic of college, all the nerds get collected in one place where the CHADs are less common and you're not going tobe ostracized for your media preferences. Nothing better than dragon ball z decals all over your hunting rifle to remind you that we live in a very strange world.
>>9016>dragon ball z decals all over your hunting rifleDo you one better, there was this one guy I saw at my undergrad who drove around with his windows down blasting hip-hop in his suped-up Nissan with a huge literal DBZ decal on each side, actual moonrunes on the windshield and a rising sun front plate.
Been wanting to try soju for a long time, i have had a lot of people tell me its good, where can a young koreaboo get some around here? Couldnt find it at the abc store but I could just be legally blind
Do a google search.
I had a similar problem when looking for sake and the solution I found was the wine store, maybe that's where soju is, too?
>>9009there's plenty of places to buy sake, just go to any """oriental""" grocery store aroundyou can prob. get soju at the H-mart or something... it is a Korean market after all
Show?Y'all howlers still going to the Maywood tonight?
Shit. Phoneposting is hard
Was actually p lame. Schedule was different than advertised (so no Space Punk), black metal band was... black metal, i.e. worst metal, and the power metal group, though pretty decent was old, AND like no one was there at that point, so it was pretty low-energy. Still more fun than being home alone on a saturday night.
I was invited to a math-rock concert on Sunday but I have to do schoolwork :\
>>8998Did you say MATH ROCK???is it a free show/a not private show?or at least a cheap show?
>>8999no details, sorryMATH ROCK is GOAT and I would love to be able to goIt's just so hard to find out about shows; I went to a vapor~wave show my first year here out of a VHS shop that was a little north and west of the warehouse district in downtown. That was really kickass and I'm glad scenes like that exist: but I don't think you'll find people talking about it in the street too often
