I would also prefer if it was as easy and quick as "hey babe u want sum fuk?", but there are certain societal expectations blablabla your average woman will adhere to.
You could be that blunt with a smart one that also wants sex, but not with your average retard.

>>53748
Remember that those are a very small subset. And being attentionwhores I would take their statement with a grain of salt "yeah I totally dumped that guy because he was a showoff and he didn't dump me because I'm a boring hole with no interesting qualities, I swear!". It's the kind of woman who complains about the guy being bad in bed, but one person can't make good sex, so she's at fault, too.
I got two girlfriends just with my big mouth. And remember that I said "believably". Claiming you're in a band and then play Wonderwall is not believable, but showing her your demo on youtube is. Claiming you're a ninja warrior participant and doing backflips is just rudely showing off (though maybe showing presenting your sixpack will help). These are shitty examples, but maybe I was a bit too uncouth in my words and you know what I mean.
I never claim anything I can't do, but I know a few common quotes by classical authors and have at least a modicum of knowledge in all kinds of topics, save for art history and whatever gossip bullshit is there right now, so I can at least appear as someone who can keep up a conversation. I never CLAIM I can do anything, I just ACT like it. And when I claim something I am prepared to keep up on my promise and that certainly makes a good impression if it's in good humor. You're there to have fun, not for a job interview.

Well I guess these women are bored by certain types of men, just like you and I are bored of certain types of women, whatever these are. I also like assertive women who carry a conversation, yet my ex was not assertive, we had energy between us quite fast nonetheless. Showing off by doing what you do anyway is not showing off to me.
I think that what they complain about is the same thing I would complain about, you met people but there is no spark, because it's a typical process most of the times with online dating. But what we want is something that really stings us, a spark. It's a bad thing that people don't give second chances when there as been no big spark the first time, yet I'm the same, I want an itch, a reminder, a feel that goes beyond: ok the person is ok, but we had nothing special, no movement.
Keep in mind these women have certain habitus, if they meet up with guys who do not share it, it's not their fault, there is no reason to hate these woman. But I understand them in a way, as I imagine I would be bored most of the times, yet I would bore many people as well. No judgements, it's just tiring to find a person that hits you really. Most of the times you realize how clicheed a date is and that is the uncomfortable feel disturbing it. Also maybe you showing off is what these people have seen so often they are not interested, an you shouldn't take that as a personal attack btw.

See, and that's the main mistake lots of people make. As written earlier, you can't force it. I mean there are like what, four billion women on this planet? And you have access to a subset of a few million? Statistically speaking you are bound to never meet "the one" unless you really meet A LOT of women. That is why I say to just enjoy the ride and have fun. If you meet someone you want to stay with for longer, you BOTH have to make it work anyway. But until then, just trying and testing is the best strategy one can take.

I'm not waiting for "the one", there are many tbh. But yeah you stil need to meet them between all the others. And yeah there is nothing else to do then going for the probabilities route and meet as many as possible :DDD well it depends on where you fish though, a pond with bydlo women won't help in increasing chances.

Are religious people going to preach about Jesus to aliens who are significantly more advanced than us, right before they zap us like bugs?

Survivorship bias is the only reason Christianity survived this far. The strongest material culture enforced Christianity. If the Aztecs would have been more advanced than the Spanish we'd all be sacrificing on pyramids.

The Middle East and North Africa are Muslim now, but they used to be Christian. The Christians there got removed by Muslims. Do you think the same thing will happen to "the way, the truth, and the life" when a stronger lifeform encounters us and dismantles our planet for resources?

When a new disease crosses the species barrier one of two things happen: Either the new disease burns through all supceptive individuals killing them or the disease is innefective/mild enough that the host species adapts. Only in the first case the species could be wiped out. But I'm a assuming an advanced civilization capable of making bioweapons would also tweak their inmune system/qurantine protocola to be much more efficient so "natural" strategies would be pretty obsolete by then. Bioweapons could be used against lesser civilizations but I think that would hardly require the trouble to have natural reservoirs of biodiversity given that other kinds of weapons could be used against lesser civs, nanotech seems to have all the advantages of bioweapons, for example and its functions should be much more straight forward than messy natural biochemistry

Whatever toxins they have still have to work their way into our system somehow. The Earth is also a big place and whatever makes the toxins would be a living thing so spreading it over the earth would take a very long time if it is even possible at all and still it would be highly likely that places would be missed. And that is if it even works on us at all or if we don't create counter measures. So I think that if this hypothetical super bacteria or fungi could even exist it would be a supporting asset not the way this hypothetical people would kill us on it's own. It would just be like anthrax or any other chemical weapon, it might disrupt us but it still needs following up.

Depending how the machine works, a nano weapon could just become a big galactic problem over time because it could take just one comet or something smashing into the planet to spray it everywhere. Granted it would be on long enough timescales to be largely irrelevant in the scheme of things but still. Organic life however will eventually die. It's not likely anything would survive a trip through space, so it preserves the number one and two rule about weapon development which is never develop something you dont want used against you eventually and don't shoot yourself with your own weapon. I just think a nanoplague has too many drawbacks to actually think about using.

>>53195
You're forgetting the kinds of timescales were are talking about here. I mean yeah sure you could easily just glass it if you're in a rush, but spraying bioweapons are the kind of thing that unless you had instantaneous portals or the fleet is on standbye in orbit it's really not a problem at all waiting for several years. I suppose it would really work down to circumstances, which could also include the fact that for example simply lobbing a giant piece of rock at us from the Oort cloud or a diverting a nearer object would almost totally commit exterminatus but we would still have the opportunity for seeing it coming, which could give us a chance at stopping it or diverting its trajectory as well as generally lead to detecting it as a weapon in some circumstances if they tried it twice. A bioweapon is a stealth weapon. It would probably be a lot easier to just spray some spores and not have anyone think much of it than others which could also actively damage the planet, although I guess if you wanted to colonize their world for God knows what reason glassing it with something bigger than Chicxulub would do a pretty good job sterilizing the surface but so much microbial life would survive it's still risky.

I noticed that there's been quite a lot of technology related discussions on EC recently, that get washed away in the today thread before getting much discussion. We also have separate threads for hardware, software, technology in general, all of which don't get much activity.
So this thread would unify all of those discussions, and have a common place to talk about computer stuff.
Discuss OSes, hardware, programming, computing in general, the Internet, etc., here in this thread. Share opinions about how computer technology is shit, SHIT! also give each other advice.

Is Ryzen 5 and B550 chipset mainboard ancient already?

>For what purpose?

Wouldn't boot on the NVME and the SSD previously used made trouble too. So i installed it on an HDD to boot into. At least that way i could use the browser to google for solutions.

Right now it works fine, i don't know what the problem was but it's solved.

I think I also stupidly bid on a old CPU on ebay, because I didn't actually think it'd go for that cheap but I just realized I could win the bid. Not sure the point at having done that since I've no point to wasting my money upgrading an old system but I feel an impossible need to upgrade every last part of it anyway to its absolute maximum upper limits the platform is capable of without straight up building the PC of Theseus retaining only the original case, which I also realized isn't even built for 120mm fans. Literally I'd need to modify the case in order to fit anything beyond a 80mm fan in the front, which I'd need a splitter to run anyway on that trash old mobo.

I think at some point I want it to have the full 16gigs 1600mhz RAM with 3770k processor, an cheap SSD boot drive with win10 in that old PCIe network card slot, and a GTX 1050ti which I've already got a couple of those and obviously the last one there's no fucking way in hell I am paying over $400 for that when I didn't even want to spend $150 on that card several months ago. It would actually be my first nVidia GPU honestly, and I'd only stick with that because I have 6 pin power connectors, or rather, a 6 pin power connector with another one daisy chained onto it from a dust filled decade old 460w OEM power supply--which means, of course, that I physically can't put a whole bunch of things in there and not just limited by power supply.

There's really only a small handful of GPUs I can even fit in the thing with that setup which includes a R7 270x which is extra sad because my shitboard doesn't even have a second slot for CrossFire which I'd never used. I forget which the other ones were but I had a list at some point of which GPUs had both only one to two or preferably only one 6 pin power connector or lower, needed less than a 500w power supply because I'm not sticking anything with large power draw on something I really should just replace entirely if I'm going to use the machine at all I fear it's a fire or fried hardware waiting to happen at this point, was old enough so as to somehow be compatible with my janky ass win8 system this actually crossed off a Zotac 1050ti at one point sadly, which is even sadder because I was going to do a tradein that had I done that I'd still have profited off the GPU shortage, and yet still new or fast enough so as to outrun my newish but ultra shite GPU a RX 550 which I was so happy about getting to run but hadn't realized what objectively piece of crap it was idk even why that GPU exists. I actually was autistic enough to start making that list.

Do any Ernsts enjoy birding here? Recently I've been getting into it. About two weeks ago I bought a cheap bird feeder at tractor supply and hung it in my backyard. At first nothing bothered with the feeder, but slowly a number of birds began to take notice. Now I have chipping sparrows, house sparrows, house finches, northern cardinals, and gray catbirds visiting the feeder. I also leave a bowl of water on the ground for american robins and european starlings, which I change every morning. Unfortunately, I do not have a decent camera so I cannot provide images of my backyard visitors. Here are some photos I found using google images.

More sandhill crane colts. First pic is a family I spotted in a busy parking lot. The second pic shows the same family I posted here >>52728. They do grow fast. Also, the cars all stopped so they could make it across the road safely.

The third pic shows the same female which I followed last year. She's easy to identify, since she's missing her right foot. I'm not sure when they chased off their last colt, but she has a new one now. I recall seeing a large juvenile group a few moths ago. After colts are chased off by their parents, they flock to other juveniles. After that, they pair off.

Thanks.

Sandhill cranes cover a lot of ground looking for food- they walk, stop to peck at the grass for a while, then walk somewhere else. So, yeah, they do end up crossing roads regularly. Drivers are good about stopping to wait for them to cross, though. Some people honk their horns to speed the birds up, and I've seen people try to slow roll up to them hoping to encourage the cranes to move faster. I hate that. They always move, if you give them time. It's not much different than a line of ducks crossing the street. Usually they take a straight line and are only in the road for a minute or two.

So they don't get hit by cars often, but it does happen. Side streets like this one are a lot safer than the main road. You can see the speed tables. Those keep the road racing to a minimum. Even so, a couple times a year I hear about a neighborhood crane getting hit. It's sad, and usually followed by angry social media posts looking for the driver. One time a guy hit one, and got into a public back-and-forth about whether it was his fault or not. He had some kind of Youtube channel, so his car was somehow known. On those occasions when sandhill cranes are hit, there are local rescue groups that come in to help if they can. They're not left to fend for themselves.

Let's play some Minecraft on our /int/ server:
hub.dev-urandom.eu:25565 (version: 1.15.2)

Wiki with more information: http://dev-urandom.eu/
Overview map: map.dev-urandom.eu
IRC: irc.dev-urandom.eu - channels: #chat (ingame chat), #int
Pirate-friendly client: https://tlauncher.org/en/

Basic commands:
/spawn - Teleports you to the spawn.
/home - Teleports you to your home (set with /sethome or by sleeping in a bed like a fag).
/lb tb - Provides a melonblock that can show block changes.

Don't grief and don't be an asshole (obviously). Basically, you can build anywhere, although there are some limitations. There is enough space for everyone! Don't get discouraged by the autism of the server, things will get easier for you later. Also, mods, admins and other players may help you.

20-30 mins tops. It's not a complex system at all, almost the opposite of Dark Stars. Most of it is just picking your equipment since stuff like rations and light aren't just flavour items, but are kind of important to the gameplay loop.

And yeah, if you give me an idea of what kind of character you're interested in, then I can also do that too. Background isn't super relevant but class-wise I'm starting with the Basic classes, found under the Classes tab here

https://oldschoolessentials.necroticgnome.com/srd/index.php/Main_Page
