Don't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity

I need a good website for my business.
I sell succubi's clothing, it is very important for me to create a review-friendly functionality that can be used by potential customers.
Can you tell me how to find a professional to create such a site?

Anybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards

The prepper scene is full of larpers, lunatics, and useless garbage but thankfully there's people who survived through IRL SHTF events and their experiences, giving genuine and useful info for beginners. My recommendation for newbie wizards interested in this area is to read Selco (Bosnian war survivor) and Ferfal (Argentine economic collapse survivor). They're among the most genuine out there and there's lots of common points in their thoughts and advice

What is the advantage of this over simply saving all that content on a hard drive? I get the whole solar thing, but what is the point of the raspberry pi?

 No.62035

>>62034
hard drive is for storing information, pi with IIAB is for broadcasting information (and other things) via hotspot so any device can access it. you could NAS some hard drives but the power for simply spinning a single hard drive is more than running a pi. with a pi you have very low power requirements, so you dont need a big battery or solar panel to keep it running 24/7. the idea behind this is a humanitarian project called solarSPELL.

it's basically a plastic tupperware with all this inside it
-solar panel
-raspberry pi
-voltage regulator
-portable usb charger

they make these things in bulk and ship to africa and other poor places so for example you just throw it outside in the sun and suddenly your classroom has a virtual learning environment (IIAB includes learning and educational stuff like khan academy for example). it is extremely cheap. but the battery system they are using doesn't provide 24/7 power

Just got into gardening and shooting guns since the beginning of this year. It's made me think why the hell isn't everyone taught these kind of life skills growing up? Just like how everyone should know how to take care of their own car. More useful than 90% of the shit you learn in high school.

Yeah I agree, I think your chances of survival in an urban area when true SHTF is nil. Your best chance of survival is in a rural area with as you said, a closely-knit community.

I've got a shitload of food, ammo, water barrels, ham radio, "kool gear" etc. stocked up, but I know it's all completely useless as long as I'm still living in an urban area. Though I'm planning to get the hell out of here in 4-6 months.

Magic is surely the highest art, but it's really a rich boy's game. Who else has the time or money to stand in a dedicated room thick with incense shouting like a madman (sorry, "evoking") for 3 hours, with a sword, goblet, pantacle, and all the other paraphernalia? Who else will have a cursory knowledge of latin, hebrew, and greek than a boarding school student? Who else has the willfulness to immediately apply their new intellectual powers than a violent youth? It's no surprise Agrippa began to write his magnum opus as a teenager, as it has all the energy of someone earnestly investigating metaphysics as though it were a real subject. Oh! but is there anything more real than that?

In the course of magical training the magician's mind is transformed from a diffuse cloud into a lightning bolt, which evokes and banishes (it's a stereotype that modern magicians spend all their time banishing and not actually doing anything, which is entirely true) as he desires. He finds the homes of gnomes and fights fairies in the woods. The magician stands at the gates of eden and laughs at the sword turning every way. Are not all the fiery powers of heaven at his feet? He cums with the force of a thousand suns. Clearly there's nothing going on when you wave your magic stick about, but you are waving your will around, and there is immense power in harnessing a waving dick (as you already know). Who else never says no to a dick, a phoenix resurrected from its deathly sanctum, than our holy prostitute? That is all I have to say on the matter.

I'd definitely advise against getting into the Arkham LCG if you aren't going to eventually buy 2+ expansions. The core set is the worst game related product I've ever purchased(slightly less bad now with the revised core) and with just one expansion the cardpool is a little shallow so it's kind of just an extremely expensive mediocre campaign game. The whole thing is on TTS though along with custom content, and is probably a better experience due to the lack of setup, so I'd still recommend checking it out there.

Is Aeon's End good with only one character or do you need to play two? I love the concept and the art, it reminds me of 90s pc games, but I'm not a huge fan of managing multiple characters in such complicated games. Which box would you recommend, I think there are like 5 now.

Just looked it up while typing this out and saw there was a steam version, got excited before seeing what an absolute mess the UI is.

>Is Aeon's End good with only one character or do you need to play two?
you can perfectly play it single handed, however the game does get considerably harder and you lose some of the fun combos that can only be done with two characters.
Playing with two characters at the same time its not hard really, its perfectly manegeable as there's not that much bookkeeping.
>Which box would you recommend, I think there are like 5 now.
I personally started with the original Aeon's End box, I think its the ideal starting point and it comes with a pretty decent cardpool so it can last for a while without having to immediately buy an expansion.

Also I might give the Arkham LCG on TTS a try, I usually feel like TTS is way too clunky and confusing for me but might work just to try it.

Cute. They combined zombies with idols and actually made it work well. They were hotter without their makeup tbh. Those dark blue circles around their eyes and stitches looked good, but the eye size perhaps made them all a little too cutesy, except for Tae who has small eyes and never regained her ability to speak. I also loved when Sakura's eyes popped out of her head from shock and the time her head came off and they had to distract the visitor so he wouldn't figure out they're zombies. The Lily tranny arc was interesting, and the courtesan arc started interesting but it dragged on a tad long. The full metal jacket reference was on point, and so was Sakura's introducing the succubi as 1-ko, 2-ko, 3-ko, 4-ko, 5-ko, 6-ko and 0-ko to that old lady at the shelter following the flood. I could keep going, but it might be pointless with a 3 month old post. Shall I continue?

- jan Brown kepeken toki Loglan sama jan Sonja kepeken toki pona. toki pona li open ala open? ken la tenpo kama la mi lukin e pakala.
- Brown:Loglan::Sonja:Toki Pona. Is Toki Pona open source? I could maybe see issues in the future.

- Toki Pona's strength is few words. The first books establishes a small vocabulary and minimalist philosophy. but the second publication expands the vocabulary. Will Toki Pona have a lot of words in the future? With a large vocabulary, would one learn Toki Pona?
– taso: ku insa li jo e nimi pimeja. ni li toki e mi tawa toki pona li muse awen la tenpo kama.
– Counterpoint: the second book has blank words. this tells me that Toki Pona will stabilize.

Every language grows like this. Even the cheatsheet you shared comes with some unofficial words like 'epiku' which are not part of the language, they could be considered as 'slang'. I think the core language is pretty much set, and that should be considered sufficient for a user of the language to start being active in the community, yet as always, actual fluency will take time to develop, as well as acquaintance with the 'slang', think of how english is sufficient to browse image/textboards but the concepts and vocabulary is pretty rich and ot takes some lurkin' to start talkin' the talk.
>Is Toki Pona open source?
It's not a software implementation. There's a little book and that's pretty much it. There's no way they can make it proprietary. If Sonja ends up being a tyrant, the community will keep an existence independent of whatever plans the creator has for the language.

Anyway I wanted to say I appreciate how you can be so focused in something and document your thoughts and whatnot and keep this thing alive in an otherwise prettu slow board (wizchan is the only site with a hobbies board that I know of, kinda sad no other site exists for this kind of talk), I can't really focus much on a thing for a sustained period and I don't dare document my progress for several reasons either.

I’m not into meditation at the moment (it’s not for me), but when I was I found out about this book, bought a physical copy, and read a few chapters. It’s well-written and the introduction felt quite relatable. That being said, I do recall some spiritual mumbojumbo later on in the book. Classic stuff though, not new age nonsense. Anyway, the author put the whole book online for free: https://www.vipassana.com/meditation/mindfulness_in_plain_english.html

meditation is sort of like lucid dreaming to me
when i achieve a lucid dream, and i become lucid, then i feel two things:
1: incredible excitement because i feel i have a superpower in my hands
2: afraid to use the superpower because i fear that this state will go away when i use it

when i attain a peak meditative state, i feel like i have a superpower, that whatever i decide to focus on, will see big success
at the same time, i know that once i divert this deeply meditated state onto matters such as work or imagination, i will become distracted, and my mind will thus leave that meditative depth

maybe it needs more practice until i can maintain that state


how i attain it:
- relax body and breathe deeply and gently through the nose
- focus unrelentingly on my breath (meaning, do not for a second divert focus away from the breath)
- when unrelenting focus is had, relax whatever strain is necessary to keep up the focus, without losing the unrelentingness (meaning, relax the brain and the breath as much as possible without losing a non-divertive focus)

- keep breathing gently and deeply, keep the non-distracted focus, and relax the body and the brain further and further
- this will cause a brutally unrelenting, but still incredibly soft and silky focus that requires 0 effort
- at some point ur focus will be birthed into reality, the focus is no longer artificial

That's because you read classical literature, most likely. That'd be like me thinking that all americans talk like they do in Poe or Melville's works.
What might throw you off in newspapers might be the writing style that journalists try to go for (often bad to passable honestly), but then that is not uncommon in this field regardless of their native language isn't it?

And I don't think it is exclusive to the french language but in school we are told that repetitions in language is one of the worst stylistic mistake one can make and should be avoided at all costs in any piece of writing that is not purely technical, like an instruction booklet.
This might be one of the reason you find some turns of phrases and word choices so weird. I would guess the same unwritten rule exists in most languages, but it is especially prevalent in french.

O.K., what the flying fuck dude? I get you're desperate, but if you're going to put effort into spamming like this, at least do it in the right places and the right times, otherwise it's not just a waste of our time, it's a waste of YOUR time , too!

First of all, you post in an imageboard. Do you know how fast you'd usually get deleted or banned for spam because the owner of the board would usually rather you pay for an advert?

Second, you post in WIZARDCHAN. Do you know what the average disposable income is here? Enough so that 90% of the userbase is on SSI or bumming off of their parents. With that kind of demographic, do you think we have money? With that kind of userbase, and the large number of mental issues we have, do you think we're entrepreneurs or businessmen with ideas for websites and apps?

Third, you post IN THE FUCKING HOBBY BOARD FOR LEARNING FRENCH. If you're going to spam, AT LEAST make a new thread in /wiz/ or some place noticeable. Ffs.

Your behavior clearly indicates why, despite possibly having programming skills, you're so fucking idiotic that you can't find work with those skills. However, if you don't even have this level of common sense, I severely doubt that anything you make could possibly be good. The ONLY thing good about your post is the fact that at least you don't have broken grammar.

I'd usually not be so harsh, but if you shit up a thread, I'll dish back hard words at you right back as a form of revenge and retaliation. Fuck right off.
