I found an interesting looking site which interviews people asking them what hardware/software they use for their life/work/projects. The actual website has no JS and is ~300KB Which I know isn't the smallest it could be but it is a breath of fresh air in bloated JS-framework monstrosities. There are some interesting people there that, if your interests overlap with mine, you may want to have a look at. Consider the date of the interview because some are 10 years old.

I sent this over from >>>/shelter/ - seems like /comfy/ might be able to use it. Feel free to delete if not.

Sort of kind of somewhat related: https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/about.html https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/power.html It's a solar-powered website for their magazine. As a result, it intentionally has a berry small size and minimal JS (optional, used for menu button and power supply/forecast stats in background. No analytics or 3rd party JS, site map at bottom if JS disabled)

>>1172 To deter botspam on my board, I keep most settings as is and change them the instant I see someone prepping up a bot. Stuff like forcing captchas in the middle of their raid, then removing the captcha when they find a way to avoid it. It fucks up with their system. I also try and gaslight trolls into thinking they never posted anything.
>>1171 Well that's how i've been doing it.
>>1172 >Janny+Mod for 6 years (more if non-IBs included) and I'd say that's mostly right No one cares that you've spent the past 6 years sweeping poop up for free. Sorry, but it's the truth.

Hmm. I don't like this thread berry much, maybe i'll unstick it.

"Come on, Snickers. Time for our walk." He throws himself in the tub, resolute in his act of defiance. Sara calls after him in her usual lackluster way. On occasion, she is forced to re-establish dominance by these little wars of attrition, in which she most often plays the role of unmovable object, her eventual victory achieved through the boredom of her misbehaved pet. "Okay, that's enough. Come on." Her tone sounds vaguely impatient. Snickers drones her out with a stultified howl. The dreams are back again. He suddenly remembers. Just the night before, while in a deep slumber, there came an ancient memory from the hind regions of the beast's mind. Now, in the tub, the dream's recollection appears to him in a cloudburst of sensation. Twilight silhouettes of shady woodland, deer in silver moonlight -- a breathless chase through clearing and undergrowth, rich crimson rewards of victory -- the scent of a she-wolf, dangerous and dark as night, beckoning to join her in the mists of the forest... The visions fade and the tub reappears. Sara is getting the squirt bottle. Snickers gives in and pulls himself out of the tub, feigning apology and submission. Sara clamps a metal choke-collar around his neck and attaches the leash. After their half-mile walk, Snickers eats his dry kibble and lays down in his bed by the sofa. The tinny noise of the television rattles in his ears, as he watches a fly bump into the window, trying helplessly to escape. Eventually, malaise sets in and he drifts off to sleep. No dreams tonight.

This is a thread for spooky stories you might hear before taking a comfy rest by a campfire. Post horror stories you enjoy or have written before and discuss with one another. I'll start with a story I'm reading right now in the next post.

>>553 Huh... Where do you live, if you don't mind me asking?

Oooo yeeesh come along the pyre thou' who wishes to heer the story of the temple of thy olde king. By the middle ages a knight was ordered by his lord to send thy news to thy olde king, crossing the desert. He received some golden tokens for him to rent the camel when he got there and was told to visit at night. By the time he arrived at the front of thy olde castle, his skin was shivering. It was at this point that he decided to knock the door, for no one was responding. He had travelled for 2 days, and the anxiety was KILLING him, minutes turned into hours as he saw the sun slowly fade and the sky turn black. And when it was as if he was sleeping, a croaking door started to make noise, he thought he was mad, but the door was opened, with a darkness much more dark than the one outside. As soon as he entered, the door stood shut. "I came here to send the news!" screamed thy knight while his skeleton sent shivers down thy spine. Not a single word was uttered, his last chance was to bring a torch to life, with the stones that the desert traveller sold him. The room turned orange, and as he was staring at the step, he got closer and closer to the throne of thy olde king. When he reached the top of the stairs, he saw his throne facing backwards. Veeery shy, he asked if he wanted to know the news. Not a siingle word, was uttered. The only thing the knight could do, was slowly turn the throne towards him. And so he did, veeery slowly, the throne was screeching as it was being turned to his direction. His face was frightened but impossible to see, his cold was ravaging but only noticed by small shakes, his hunger fed his anxiety, HE KEPT GOING AND WHAT DOES HE SEE? As he turns the throne towards him, he sees... nothing. "What the..." he asked, confused how such an important figure would leave his most important position in his life. The eyes of him couldn't be more opened from the shock of it. But... as soon as the knight... turns his head towards the hall. "GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" He felt to the floor, dropped his torch next to him, and the carpet below him was set into fire. In the blink of an eye, this wonderful structure of the age, has turned into a human oven. His armour was burning him, his sweat was blinding him, and his fear was numbing him. And from the middle of the fire, he lingers. He who he came for lingers. The one who the news was meant for lingers. With his head pitch black and a dirty robe of white, he approached inmensively slowly as if it were of a ghost. "I'VE BEEEN WAITIIIIIING, FOR FAAAAAAAAAAR TOOOOOOOOO LOOOOOOONG" The figure stretched his hand. The knight didn't knew what to do, for the hand looked as if it was of someone who was dead. Pitch black from the fire, his fingers were thin as sticks and the skin as paper. In his desperation, he had no choice. To not turn to death from the fire, in hopes of salvation, he grabbed thy olde king's hand... "NOW THAT YOU'RE STUCK WITH ME YOU BETTER BE MY FRIEND"

I have created a rough draft of my desired civilization, i would appreciate it if you took the time to read it and give your opinion on my ideas, whether you completely disagree and think it is retarded or if you share similar opinions. Or if you just have criticisms and thoughts on how i could improve this. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1os49gDIL5adCAonPGcsdJsO9AaA1ATqhfpyV6oNOZDo/edit?usp=sharing
