I'm so fucking sick of windows updates hgnngn


star-rice -

wtf do you mean "Cleaning up" why do you have a whole screen for this


cjadewyton -

ughhh MOOD... At least yours does the cleanup though. When it didn't do the cleanup for me on my old comp I had to do a manual cleanup & delete the old OS files >:C Which took up almost 100gb of data after 6 months of me not realising it wasn't deleting old OS stuff (on my new comp, it now takes up only 300mb). The old computer also wants to update literally *every time it shuts down*. I can turn it off, turn it on, then immediately turn it off and it will update!! Like dude!!! What are you even updating?!


star-rice -

Thats what its doing?! What the fuck do you mean it doesn't do that automatically????

Why is Windows a veritable dumpster fire. But also good fucking thing that it did a "clean up" because the main hard drive my OS sits on is only 300gb big and only has about 72gb free. If it wasn't deleting its old OS files, we'd run into a big problem real fuckin fast. My PC needs that space to be able to function with any amount of speed.

Windows updates suck for a variety of reasons, but them being forced is one of them. I access my computer from remote desktop all the time. Thus, my computer must actually be online at all times. This wouldn't be a problem except that I have a temp guage error that pops during BIOS and will not continue to boot without a keypress. So when Windows updates and it turns itself off and on about 10 times durring that process, it gets held up every time because I have to be around to press F1 to continue booting. Which means, if Windows updates, I cannot access my PC until I get home and take the required 30 minutes to an hour babysitting it for the update to be over. And I'm completely fucked if I'm out and about and need something off my hard drive.

I'm like 90% sure that's what it's doing because when it didn't on mine it caused really bad problems. It's supposed to do it automatically but sometimes windows just likes to Fuck Around.

AAA yeah. I can't imagine if it did it on a small harddrive that would just,, be so frustrating. If you want to see about clearing up files, look up the "Disk Clean-Up" program (its a default one, comes installed), it can find a lot of left over files that are just taking up space

Ohhh my god that absolutely suuuuucks. We used to have a comp that needed similar to boot up so I can only **imagine** what that's like if your physical hardwhere is just. Somewhere else entirely.

I really wish windows would just. Let you choose things.

I was gonna say "Aw, its not that bad. I only have like 2 gigs to get rid of but its all in my Recycle bin" but I took a peak at what you could nuke under system files and its up to 36gb πŸ™ƒ So I guess I'm creating a restore point (just in case) and then deleting those bitches. I assume the reason they keep those previous OS versions is so you have something to reinstall if a new update goes wacky, so I'm just gonna hope and pray there wasn't something screwy in the most recent update so this restore point isn't a complete moot point.

Also, looking through this, it seems the "Cleaning up" phase of a windows update doesn't delete the previous versions of windows, it compresses them and does what it can to make that data smaller. Knowing some tech stuff, it is best practice to keep those older files for a just in case scenario, but every time my computer has gone sideways, its always been a hardware malfunction that forced me to move PCs into a fresh install.

So I stayed up until two am last night painting this and uh. Funny story- if you know the like, two or three admittedly kinda thin layers of context for this, it's actually fanart.


Housemate is working on a project and thought star stitch would be A+ for what he wanted. It's a pretty circular bag, so he wanted to see if there was a way to do star stitch in round (for reference: star stitch). It took me several iterations to figure out a solid pattern for increasing, but I did it.


It's a fine balancing act, but I finally got it to not teeter past the edge of disaster. One of the bigger problems is that, between the alternating rows of top and bottom stars (and trying to apply the proper increases) one row has too many stitches to comfortably fit in the round, and the next has too few. I wittled it down so that the opposite discrepancies mildly cancel each other out without pushing it to full on curl and wobble at the same time.

It's a shame that housemate got some more ideas while we were troubleshooting this, so he won't be using the pattern I came up with, but my brains jittering with brain chemicals after successfully dealing with this puzzle.

For the first time in literally at least a year (maybe multiple I don't remember at this point) I'm actually fleshing out my OCs again. This is fucking wild. I forgot how much of a fleshed out universe they lived in and how many different paths I envisioned for all of them and more peculiarly, what had driven me to put them on those paths. Now I just have a very diverse cast set in a vivid universe.

I might need to make a blog for just yelling about them if only so I can have a place to keep my misc writings.

Also I'm not just hyper focusing on Miles either. I'm dredging up everybody. Particularly I'm negotiating the various ways they'd be acquiring money. Hilariously, it's all my newer kids that are big question marks. Older ones have a much better handle on the world.

You ever just bip bopping around in life and you hear a name and you think "wow that's a really cool name, I like that" and then the character it was destined for comes up and round-house kicks you in the face and politely says thank you and walks off with it?

Yeah.

Twitch is the world's leading video platform and community for gamers.

Streaming!

I'm starting with a sketch and hopefully something incredibly substantial will get done with it~

I hit a milestone in the rewrite's development today, and it now supports localisation! This means the site can be translated into other languages to help us welcome folks from around the world who aren't as fluent in English.

To help me decide on which languages, and in which order, I should work on getting translations done, I've put together a short survey. Fill it out if you have time!

I've only passed out once (that I definitely know of) but sometimes when I stand up, I get that feeling and I really need to work on figuring out what causes that because I hate it a lot


naiad -

I think our couch is pressing too hard on my thighs tbh. I was using my loom and didn't realize how long I was sitting there without moving around and I usually move around on it constantly so when I stood up I got that blood rush feeling :c


star-rice -

Man, I hate that shit. I used to get it all the time. I hadn't even thought about it in forever until I got it for the first time in like, a day or two ago (probably from sitting like a gremlin). It's always at least mildly disorienting in part because you probably stood up to go do something and now you're having to deal with this now instead.


Things I didn't expect from watching the new Animaniacs reboot:


The trio (as greek gods) torturing Odysseus by allowing giant Donald Trump (playing the cyclops) to pick him up and (more graphically than I was ever expecting) rub him along his nipple with the scene being wrapped in a bow with a demigod/demagogue joke.

Anyway, I'm having a great time with this show and I'm only an episode and half in.
