Here we discuss and speak of dreams that we had or the kind of dream that we would want.
We don't discuss of lucid dreaming.
I wanted to make this kind of thread as i do control them in how they will work but once inside i let the dream go and work his own doing.

Concerning a certain comic strip that I have dreamt or will dream, be it honestly, in a nightmare, or because existence is cruel enough to lie to me by making the dream too hyperrealistic to tell apart from reality until I wake up (or whatever convoluted detail I have yet to go through in the future from this so-called lucid dreaming/astral plane bs/cause I am unevolved enough to comprehend it all) I get it:

I can never return to it in a way I can agree with it fully in this life again.

Are any wizards interested in astrology? I've recently got into it and become very passionate about it. It's definetely true, and i've also started to developing my own theories that i'm hopefully going to refine with time.

I think everyone should study their own birthchart, its a great source of information and wisdom. You can find the roots of 90% of your problems by studying it and every little detail about your own psyche.

But be careful, astrology is just tendencies (VERY strong tendencies), astrology is no joke. If you study it too much, it may cause some paranoia. Do not allow it to cause paranoia on yourself. Remember that you still in control of your own life and destiny, but the price is eternal vigilance.

Both the people say astrology is very real and people say its bullshit are correct. Its real but you also are free to become conscious and change the patterns that the stars impose on you.

>Are FWD (front wheel drive) bikes better to ride at a hill or something going up?
Not really.
Recline bikes and other such bikes that sometimes have drive trains in the front are more about the advantages of the unusual ride position for comfort and lower drag, and being able to use different muscle groups that have more endurance at the expense of less sprinting power.

It anecdotally makes climbing harder. Especially if you have to balance.

If you are taking about e-bikes, it doesn't matter.

I am naturally high T and an involuntary celibate Wizard. I literally have a warrior skull and visible strong muscles.

I suppose in ancient times I would just have killed other men and take their loli daughters for myself.

Being high t and having a warrior physique doesn't make you some handsome socializer normalfag. If anything my disposition is more towards killing normalniggers, there are times when I get angry and wish I could curb stomp a nigger but I can control my feelings.

Some engineering advice for you:

(1) Don't try to over-abstract your code. Write what you need and if a pattern emerges frequently then you can write a general abstraction.

(2) Don't bother trying to optimize your code. Work on building the project you want and optimize when you run into performance issues.

(3) Avoid using every language feature. Every additional feature you use imposes complexity and increases the cognitive load of working with your software. This is also true of frameworks.

(4) Object orientated programming is mostly bullshit and will make your program into spaghetti. There is one exception though: encapsulation. Use classes as if they were related functions and state. This lets you build parts of your project as components that only have to focus on only thing. Avoid using every feature of OO programming if you want a program that's actually maintainable.

(5) You need to write tests to verify that your code works. At the very minimum you need tests to check that a feature you write can be used. Call this an 'integration test' if you will.

(6) There are some ways of solving problems that will only be suitable for toy apps and make it impossible to re-use in professional software. As a noob you won't know what these are but expect there to be a long learning curve.

(7) If you're trying to debug a highly complex error and you're drowning in complexity start adding assert statements everywhere. E.g. your function takes n. Assert n is within the range you expect. Assert all different variables for sanity checks. It can drastically reduce the amount of time you spend trying to guess what's wrong.

(8) Python packaging isn't great. If you want to make things easier on yourself try to avoid packages that have C dependencies (they need complication) and use only packages that use the standard library. Don't bother with Python 2 support. For building your own packages I recommend you just put all your source files in one folder with one init file. Trying to over-complicate how you organize your project will lead to you losing to complexity.

(9) You need to get serious about continuous integration across different OSes and versions if you want to release something to actual users.

Hey man, kind of in the same boat except I'm doing Ruby. If you want to become pro I'd try to use the best resources possible. They're probably books tbh. If you just jump around things on the internet you might not progress that much but a 400 page book is structured and edited for quality etc. You don't have to do it my way I'm just offering an opinion

This year most of my plants (zucchinis, strawberries, cucumbers) got messed up with the heat waves, tomatoes are really the only thing I have left. I don't want summer to end, going back to eating store vegetables and fruit is soul crushing. Not much money so no fancy organic food.

Do you garden? How long? What plants?

my peppers got some sort of pests burrowing through a couple of them. Probably because they're too mild. Apparently it's common to order pepper seeds for one species and receive seeds for a different species. That is what happened to me and I think they are anaheim instead of what I ordered. My cucumbers were similarly productive but succumbed to some sort of disease or virus. Eggplants grew a shit ton of leaves but few fruits and only a few got to eating size. I don't think we have enough light where they were.

Recently I've been doing a lot of clearing. I have been slashing down a bunch of native shrubs and trees that cover up spaces and many other plants that I've planted myself. I usually let them grow, especially ij spring, so that they create some microclimate during the harsh summer. Now that the days are getting shorter and the sun is less bright I can clear up these spaces, and open them up for the plants below. The leaves make for gold mulch and I can use the trunks and branches for firewood. Everythijg used to look so lush, now it looks a little empty in contrast.
I also want to bring in many new plants to fill up some of this space, as it turns there's a lot of it! I plan to bring some small trees and shrubs and hope that within the next 5 years they grow big and themselves cover the ground from the sun, as well as provide a lot of fruit.
I have also been broadcasting a lot of vine seeds, mostly curcubitae, such as pumpkin and luffa, but also others like passionfruit. I want lots of trees with vines hanging from them full of fruit, and pumpkin vines crawling along the ground.

well everything else has died from the cold but my peppers and everything inside the greenhouse are still alive, so i consider this a big success, even if it does eventually get too cold in a few weeks, it definitely extended the growing season and should let me start planting early also.

it uses a document-based database to store tags and metadata.
to add new stuff you can either drag and drop the things you want to add into the gui or if they already have record files made for them you can just mass dump them where ever you want inside whatever folder you designated to be your library.

the gui looks and works fairly similar to a booru. there's a search bar you can put your query into, currently the search system is strong enough to do a few different types of searches and handles a few different types of tags. after you submit a search, multithreading is used to rapidly dig through your libraries and display results as they're being found in real time.

what makes it less intrusive than hydrus, is that filebrary supports multiple libraries. it also doesn't rename your files into hash garbage. it doesn't use sqlite or mongodb, all the database records are indiviual files that are human-readable in toml markup.

Just finished reading A Drifting Life after having a positive experience reading The Push Man and Other Stories by the same author, Tatsumi Yoshihiro. This is a very long book, at almost 900 pages long and it tells the story of the author from 15 to his mid 20s. It’s a quiet and introspective autobiography about the author’s obsession with manga. This is an interesting book on several levels, one of them being his drive and passion for the media. This is something that always feels amazing to me, being a person without a great passion for anything, reading about people that have one great love that serves as the foundation of their very existence in this world. It's so odd and comforting in a way. The author himself is impressed at times at how deep he is into his own manga world bubble and how the world is changing around here without him noticing it.

This is an autobiography and a historical document of the development of manga in Japan in the 50s and 60s. If you’re interested in that at all, you’ll have a great time with it. If you’re not interested in the subject matter, this can become a slog. Like I said, at almost 900 pages, most of it is dedicated to the conflicts between the magazines and the mangaka, trends in artwork and script, important publications, important authors at the time and so on. Fortunately for me I’m interested in the world of comics and manga, so I had a great time with it. It was very interesting to read about manga before the great magazines, how they came to be and what they destroyed to become the hegemonic method of manga publication. There’s a bittersweet tone to the whole thing, and the feeling of longing the author has for the past is very evident. It’s like he’s trying to capture as much as he can from his young years and the events that made those days so important to him. I was very moved in many places during my reading of it. I say longing but there isn’t a sentiment of nostalgia, or a combative stance of ‘the good old days’ vs now. The work has a quiet peace about the whole thing, even in the moments of struggle. Like the previous work I read from this guy, I have to recommend this one.

This is a little more demanding than most comics/manga just due the sheer amount of pages. It took me 3 days to finish it but I was going purposely slow with this one. You can read it for free at archive.org. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

File: 1712868016075.jpg (233.91 KB, 976x1500, 244:375, Monsters Are My Business.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I picked up Monsters Are My Business while perusing new stuff coming out. The cover struck me as the writers and artists have a fondness for the good old schlocky comic booky fun and I was right. It’s a comic that doesn’t take itself seriously, mixing some fun modern fantasy tropes and artwork that is giving me a sense of nostalgia for something I can’t quite pin it down. Perhaps the Comix Zone game for the Genesis, and also a smidgen of Metal Slug, I’m not sure.

This is a fast food type of comic, fast pacing, lots of action and likable characters. Not much to think about but super fun to go through. It does a very good job at establishing its characters right off the bat with minimal text, which I love. It’s the sign of a good comic book writer right there. The plot is simple and it’s piece together from well known tropes. Basically an evil cult in the best Lovecraftian tradition brings about some demonic rain that wrecks the planet and now you have all sorts of abominations walking around. The rich are all walled up somewhere but our hero, Tanner "Griz", his mute koala companion Cuddles and a necromancer named Hillary live in the Flooded Zone, helping people in need. If you ever watched the movie Cemetery Man and you like that sort of thing, this book will be a treat for you. It’s like that movie but without the eroticism and a lot more humor to it. I’m very happy to have picked this one up. It’s very refreshing in a way, which is weird because there’s nothing particularly new in this book. The art and the writing have this enthusiasm for the medium that is contagious in a way and I had more fun than I expected. Looking forward to the second issue.

It's an imageboard software running with PHP and Javascript. The "Install" is done through PHP once prerequisits are met and is done in order to create the appropriate databases and tie everything together without the operator needing to move things around or manually rename repeating assets when a new board is added.
