Winter: I used to most dislike this season because of the rain, and occasionally snow. Now that I don't have to go outside as much, I find that I like it more. It is the nicest season for staying inside.
Decemberchan. A new, 1 month textboard.
Come give it a try if you'd like.
Is it down?

A strange board that is.
Simplicity rules. If you try to purposefully limit your usage of the Web and the Internet only to services like this one, where you do not need to use any advanced graphical tools, you're likely to find out that this is going to make your use of the Web a lot more enjoyable.
And is there any difference between the two?
Jokes aside, what are your thoughts on small imageboards/textboards that come and go?
I feel a lot of them struggle to find a purpose and uniqueness and as a result struggle to survive after an initial boom of posts that the advertising and excitement for something new bring
However I think it's nice to see all these attempts, it somehow shows that there are people who still care this type of communication. And it's especially fun when you see something which looks original and isn't the usual ib script and theme
Addressing the faq:
>Why does this exist?
>Why do you exist?
I think you misinterpreted the question. What is usually meant by it is:
>Why do you think anybody would ever frequent your website instead of the googleplex of other basically equal ones functionality-wise?
You can't ask the same question to me because people can't choose who they are close to irl as easily as they can choose what website they visit. And anyway if your plan is to have a site alive as much as my social life then you're not well off...
This place is basically dead.
Every once in a while, someone tries to compile a list of small textboards/imageboards, and this place ends up on it. We see a flurry of new activity for several weeks, and then it dies down again.
>However I think it's nice to see all these attempts, it somehow shows that there are people who still care this type of communication. And it's especially fun when you see something which looks original and isn't the usual ib script and theme
I agree, I think it's nice, and it's cool to see creative takes on the concept even if most of them aren't really sustainable.
>Why does this exist?
I think the main draw to it is the design and color of the site. There isn't anything much more to it.
I think that the cool thing about text boards of this kind is that they are fairly minimal and dead simple and do not require anything in the way of supporting client-side scripts and cookies and all that garbage, aren't privacy-invasive, and tend to attract people who happen to be more interested in the content and the subject matter rather than superficial fluff. There aren't that many places on the Web where one can freely post from Tor without scripts and all that shit, so I highly appreciate that this boards and other similar boards exist, even if there isn't much going on.
Now that it's Oct 1st, I am EXTREMELY excited for the holiday season.
There's Canadian thanksgiving, then Halloween and Christmas.
Even though I don't really buy things (except food), I don't decorate, and I don't have anyone to give gifts to and I don't receive gifts either.
I don't do much. It's more a state of being. I can't wait.
I can't say I share your enthusiasm, but I do feel bad whenever there's not candy left outside for trick or treaters. I still need to get my present for my online buddy ready.
you sound autistic.
As a kid, I hated holidays. I think I like them now because things are so boring.
Today is a good day! I don't feel like killing myself. How are all of you?
Nice! I'm very tired, doing a lot of remote work today.
I'm procrastinating on going to sleep. This seems like a nice place. I'd like to feel a connection to people through the internet again, a forgotten feeling.

>I am very much enthusiastic for machine learning to surpass human creatives.
Yeah that will happen because human creatives are only allowed to make fast food entertainment today.
Can't wait to see machine generated fast food entertainment! That's what it'll probably be, for the most part.
On the other hand, it will make non-fast food entertainment cheaper still.

And the season shows its last traces, to depart once again, for a long time.
Seasons are constantly happening. There are 4 seasons in each year. So it's impossible for them to "depart".
Right now we are entering the autumn season.
They individually depart to different locations, anon. In Australia people are experiencing winter.
Wrong. Winter does not exist in australia.
>> 2020 Beirut explosions
> Several explosions in the port of Beirut, Lebanon, kill more than 70 people, injure more than 2,500 others and send shock waves that damage homes as far as 10 kilometers (6 miles) away. Prime Minister Hassan Diab, whose wife and daughter are among the injured, declares Wednesday a national day of mourning. The explosion was felt in a few nearby countries.

2020 really has some heavy shit happening. Riots, giant explosions, pandemic, natural disasters and more. Feels like the world has building up tension over the years and it's about to be released all at once.
That's exactly how I feel, which makes me think there is more to come.

> A nicotinic hypothesis for Covid-19 with preventive and therapeutic implications
>> SARS-CoV-2 epidemics raises a considerable issue of public health at the planetary scale. There is a pressing urgency to find treatments based upon currently available scientific knowledge. Therefore, we tentatively propose a hypothesis which hopefully might ultimately help saving lives. Based on the current scientific literature and on new epidemiological data which reveal that current smoking status appears to be a protective factor against the infection by SARS-CoV-2 , we hypothesize that the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) plays a key role in the pathophysiology of Covid-19 infection and might represent a target for the prevention and control of Covid-19 infection.
Seems like Nicotine can help treat a coronavirus infection.

（マンカストラップ アロンゾ ミストフェリーズ）ラム・タム・タガーこいつは厄介
中にいるときゃ出たくなる 表の時は裏側さ 帰ったとたんに出かけちゃう
The Internet. My first love. Once full of promises, a utopia, what have I loved this Internet. I wanted to be one with this entity, with this rush. So many people, so many cables, circuit boards and hard drives. The connections, technical and human, we can communicate with one another! What a romantic idea, we all can say anything to each other now.
But this idea is only romantic if it is stripped completely of its mediality. To be honest, that everybody can say anything is a really dumb idea. Noone can really want that. And why not? Because this would mean the total abolition of any value system. Language structures our lives. It also has material effects. If anyone can say anything, there are no rules. No rules, no values.
The idea of the imageboard 8chan was that anyone could say anything. No limits, no prohibitions. Completely anonymous. No one would ever be held accountable for anything they posted – and how should they be? You couldn't tell who wrote what. At the same time, this is the ultimate perversion: anyone can say anything, but not as themselves. And so, really no one has said anything. This forms the language of anonymous *chans: a downward spiral of condescending disdain. The unwritten rules for participating in a *chan conversation is to write something that outperforms all previous posts in viciousness, disdain, nihilism or other bad feelings. No reparative modes of communication seem to be allowed. Nothing in this sphere can heal you.
This mode of communication is not confined to imageboards, but enters the rest of the Internet through memes. There is no spell defining the rules of the game like in battle rap. In battle rap, there is a beginning and an ending, whatever is said in between is said and not said at the same time: it's a form of meta-communication. Also, this frame of reference makes transgressive statements possible in the first place. There is no spell on the Internet, as it is a ubiquitous medium.
The downward spiral of disdain works just because it's not clear what has ever been the frame of reference for irony. If anything can be ironic, and you don't know who said what, how would you know what's irony and what isn't? Impossible without a frame of reference.
We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate... We are eager to tunnel under the Atlantic and bring the old world some weeks nearer to the new; but perchance the first news that will leak through into the broad flapping American ear will be that Princess Adelaide has the whooping cough.
Sometimes the easiest way to share a file with someone in the same room as you is to send it over the internet. Not, like, through the internal network but through social media or a file hosting site. This is easier and faster than pulling out a USB stick.
So even though we are in the same room together, that file has to escape the house, travel a great distance to some company's server in a different country, and make the same trip back just to end up at nearly the same place it started.

We can't overdose on melatonin, but we can get accustomed to it.
>try doubling the dosage
In fact even 600 mcg of melatonin is impossible to find, over-the-counter anyway.
All pharmacies and superstores have 5 mg being the "normal" dose. You can even find 10 mg tablets. Although all of this should be safe, it's going to make people dependent on melatonin. I wonder if pharmaceutical companies are doing this on purpose, or if people are just demanding high dosages for more "effectiveness".
I remember that a few years back, I was able to find some tablets that had 0.5 mg of melatonin in them. I have resorted to breaking 1 mg doses in half.
strange. well, if you can't sleep, then it's likely that your circadian rhythm is out of whack. so it may be a good idea to try to restore it by going out in the sun more, increasing your intake of vitamin d and calcium (if you take vitamin d pills, take them in the morning), and setting a consistent bedtime
and if you haven't already, it may be good idea to reduce your blue light exposure 2-3 hours before bedtime. as light, and especially blue light, plays an important role in suppressing melatonin production in the brain.
And we went for a walk. So my calves really hurt.
Isn't that sad?
Yes. It's very sad. :(
