God, I f*cking hate what happened to tumblr. It's infested with 4chan-type incels now even.

1Forget EVERYTHING he said about join date> post count as none of it is remotely correct

 

its just how it’s been set up

 

I’ve been there in many years but I remember seeing an email a while back about blocking and banning those who post that 8chan type material

Yeah...I think it is smart to take breaks from casual thing now and then. 
 

I think everyone takes a GTAF hiatus now and then.  Good for the mind and body.

Yeah it was I took almost 3 year hiatus after I got hurt but I do remember being on here almost daily and how toxic it got at times and even now sometimes I’ll go a while without coming here

My PC died on me apparently. Every time I turn it on it makes this loud, start-up noise for a couple seconds (normal, was like this since I bought it, PS4 does the same thing), and then when it's supposed to start loading Windows, it shuts down suddenly before rebooting again. And it keeps doing this over and over. Normally, during the period where the loud noise starts, the motherboard's company logo is supposed to appear on the screen (Gigabyte in my case) then disappears once the noise ends. Nothing appears now, however. :/

 

Really hope it's not a Windows malfunction, or of it is, then I hope that there's some sort of way to at least backup my files. I have like +25GB worth of Skyrim mods up there. The games are fine, I can rebuy them (it's just Skyrim, DooM 4 & Watch Dogs 2 anyway). But there's no way I can redownload all of the mods again.

Similar thing happened to me few years back. Turned out it was a hardware problem, a faulty opitical drive. Not saying yours is the same problem though.  Whatever happens, you can take comfort in the fact that as long as your hard drive isn't damaged you can just put it into another Windows machine as a second HD and transfer the files you want.  But you knew that already, didn't you. :colgate:

Oh wow, I just clicked on my profile to see this. I'm guessing the fact I posted a bunch last night and the forum was down so long during the day made it possible. That's something I didn't expect to see today. 😂

:lol: I know that already, lol. In fact, I do own a USB external hard drive myself. But the thing is, aside from my laptop I don't have any other machine where I can just plug in my PC's HDD, and because said HDD is much bigger in size (like actual size, not the disk space), I'm not sure if the "item" in my HDD USB can fit in. Besides, I'm a pussy when it comes to these things, lol. As well-versed as I am in using Windows, I'm an idiot when it comes to hardware parts - I'm a bit afraid that if I remove the HDD from the PC and tried to "convert" it to an External HDD by using the USB parts, I may end up breaking both. I know myself very well.

 

Also also, there's another part that I've forgot to mention. My desk (where the PC, TV and PS4 are) is located right under a very small window. Some time ago it rained hard, and apparently I didn't close the window properly and resulted in some rainwater coming in. Because of the PC's bulky case design, half of it is "sticking out" of the upper shelves of the desk.... and is directly underneath said window. The case's vents are from the top and left side. I'm very afraid that the rainwater must've entered the PC and did water damage to it :( that can be very expensive if that's the case. And worst of all, because of how small and tight everything is in my room, I have no other place to put this thing in.

Ever tried cleaning your wires for your games consoles? Mine were disgusting. Dust and what looked like mould that you wouldn't know was there. Wiped them all with antibacterial wipes and dried them with kitchen roll.

 

 

Also f*ck these christmas adverts.

I was about to suggest you take your Drive to a friends to use their machine but then realised that friends are nosy and would want to peek at your files:bored:

 

If you want to lose your fear of hardware I'd recommend building your own machine. It only takes about two hours and can be done out of old machines that people have dumped - not to build a red-hot gaming machine, but more for fun and curiosity. My power supply died a while back and, being too mean to buy a new one, waited until I found an old machine someone had dumped by the bins and took the supply out of it. Still works perfectly fine to this day.

press 1 for 10-minutes of elevator music before getting told to call again later

press 2 for 10-minutes of elevator music, but you get told to call again later in a different language

press * if you want to repeat the message

press 3 if you're sure you want the message to repeat

press 4 if you don't want the message to repeat

 

goodbye

@Caffeination

I hate when you're on hold, then get an automated message asking you to call back later. Or you listen for the options, press some numbers, then end up back at the beginning because you pressed the wrong order of numbers like some secret code. Or after pressing a number you get 'Did you know....' then a long list of other ways you can contact them.

That's the bad thing though, as well-versed as I am when it comes to handling Windows, I'm a complete ignorant when it comes to hardware. I lack the knowledge of electronical stuff when it comes to PC parts. Even after opening my PC's cover, I still had no idea what each component does or how each part connects together. I wish I knew how, at least I'd know how to fix this thing, or at a very minimum I'd figure out how to obtain my files back.

Similar thing happened to mine, for a while it kept freezing more and more, and it finally died in August, it just won't boot up. I tought it was a Windows issue, but it also refuses to recognize the CD player and read the Windows installer CD, so my best guess is my HD somehow went kaput.

 

I'm just not in a hurry to fix it, I'm saving to buy a new PC maybe next year, and until then I have a notebook for uni projects, so it's fine. Sucks to not be able to play games tho. it runs Minecraft at 5-10fps at 6 chunks, and it runs San Andreas (but even a Toaster could run it).

I think... I think it's time I deactivate my tumblr and move on somewhere else, I don't know. I've been attached to it for a long time, refused to abandon it since I hoped the site would finally fix its sh*t, but I've come to acknowledge that there's no light at the end of this tunnel. Nothing but a dreadfully mundane void, and made worse by an invasion of alt-right incels, making themselves comfortable on what they consider an abandoned frontier.

 

Whoever of the people I'm following bothered to still use the site are much more active on Twitter anyway, and those who don't use their tumblr are on Twitter as well. Perhaps that will be my next virtual home.

Just do it. The sooner you realise it's not going to change and you stop beating your head on a wall and trying to like it, you'll be better off. I used to be a part of a forum many years ago that went down a similar road and took a long time for me to just accept it was a lost cause and find newer pastures.

I felt the same about Facebook before I deleted it. For different reasons though. As I scrolled through, I just thought to myself "Why do I even care about any of this?". Just people posting really pointless stuff that doesn't grow me as a person or make my life any better. In fact it just gave me a headache constantly comparing myself to others.

 

I've only ever gone on Tumbr for gifs, and I found it really weird. I think you'll be much happier just using Twitter. I don't think Twitter is perfect either, but I think it's a heck of a lot better than Facebook & Tumblr. I feel like you can personalise it a lot more to your liking. 

 

Still, I'd take old school forums like this over any social media site. Keeping it anonymous, whilst still being able to have great discussions.

The cashier at Tesco has started to recognise me when i come in. This is a problem. I just want to buy my groceries and now I have to have a quick catch-up with her everytime I go in. I mean I'm flattered she remembers me, but my anxiety & social interaction, god please let me leave...there is a line behind, they're all looking at me, help

I should have mentioned she's like in her late 30's/early 40's at least. Although I could be way off, not like I'm going to ask. I'm only 24.

Is she attractive though or ugly? I'd say maybe go for it.
