confession: IM GAY.   Okay, im not gay, im bisexual, but I have fallen in love with another guy for the first time ever and its mutual. its pretty wierd tbh, but it feels really great,

Confession: I was one with the puns today.  We went out whale watching, and for a period of five minutes or so, I only responded to people with pretty awful sea-related puns, like "I a-grebe", "I need

Defragging should happen by default on windows vista and up.  Its the first thing I turn off because it always happens during the night while I'm active.  Plus defragging is only useful if you write and delete a lot of files, and for general use, most people don't.  For Fuwa users who probably frequently download and delete multigigabyte folders semifrequently, its useful, but I've never seen an average person's fragmentation exceed 5%.  

 

Also, CCleaner is the bane of my existence.  Junkware should never be a problem if you always look at what you are installing, and make sure you install from legitimate sources.  And "cleaning registries" is the largest piece of shit marketing I've ever heard.  The windows registry is usually small, and its insignificant at read times with how fast today's disks can read it.  Keeping old registry keys is more useful in case you run across an old program that might actually use it, keeping it from screwing up, and these cleaners usually delete old registries that may be used by those one off programs you occasionally use.

 

I've had this laptop for about 4 years now, and the only reason I've seen it BSOD is because part of my RAM has a bad sector, and something tries to access it even after windows screams "NOOOOOOO".  People these days need to get computer literate and watch for what they install and learn to troubleshoot for themselves.  If it wasn't for the fact that Microsoft is at least semi-robust at updating their security and people not changing the automatic install option, about 40% of the computers would be bots by this point.

 

Confession: I hate it when I see people do stupid things to computers.  I always laugh when someone tells me not to force shutdown by holding the power button.  Any program nowadays keeps a continuous backup of any important data on the drive anyway, just to haunt you the next time you open up the program by asking "Did you need this?".  I cut the power all the time, if I didn't think about it when I was cutting the power, it probably wasn't important anyway.

That's true, but if you don't download much, then it doesn't take long to defrag. Heavy downloaders should run it at least once a month, and even casual users are encouraged to do it every 3 months. I don't understand what it is about the default defrag, but it apparently isn't as thorough as it should be. JkDefrag is free to use, light enough to where you don't even have to install it, and seems to be better (I've noticed an improvement in my Windows load time).

 

I never said I used it for cleaning my registry (I agree, there's no point to it). I just use it for cleaning cache and temp files. It's free, doesn't negatively impact my performance, and it helps a little. Just make sure it doesn't start with Windows and disable active monitoring.

 

Confession: Me too. When I tried to get a friend into VNs, he said he didn't wanna take the chance of getting hacked for some dumb reason. So I just shrugged it off and left him alone.

People still call getting access to web accounts using brute force password generation "hacking", and it still pains me every time people say it.

 

Confession: When I was a teenager, my mom activated parental controls and limited me to 1 hour of computer use a day.  I asked her, quite nicely, to bump it up to two hours, which I thought was reasonable.  She refused.  I then proceeded to look up how to create an admin account through commands by booting into Terminal (we only had a Mac desktop).  I ran a command that deleted a file that told the computer it had already been set up, which let me create an admin account without actually having admin privileges beforehand.  I then hid the admin account, and extended my time indefinitely whenever the prompt came up telling me I had X minutes left before I got booted off.  I basically had unlimited time, but the parental controls still appeared to be in place, since they technically were.

 

TL;DR: All you parents out there, don't use parental controls unless you prevent booting into terminal and actually know what you're doing with computers, because it's pathetically easy to get around them with just a Google search and a few lines of code.

Back when I was a kid (well, middle-school) I stumbled on some hentai sites while looking for Pokemon pictures (you know how that happens). Well back then I didn't know how to cover my tracks so soon enough my dad discovered a bunch of hentai in our history. So then he installed a kind of web-nanny thing that blocks all naughty sites. The funny thing was that he assumed it was my older brother who had been going to those sites (to be fair, he was usually going to normal porn sites so...) so he got all mad at my brother... and then told me the password to the web-nanny thing because he was sure I would use the internet responsibly because I was a good kid.

 

Result: The meaningless web-nanny was unable to stop me from visiting more hentai sites and the only thing that changed was I learned how to cover my tracks. There were never any troubles with hentai sites in our house again... because I never got caught again.

One way I've heard it put is that Marvel is about normal people being superheroes, whereas DC is about superheroes being normal people.  Marvel heroes usually have some flaw to them, aren't considered 'all-powerful', etc, such as Spider man or some random angsty teenager X-man.  DC superheroes are usually larger than life and super-powerful to a degree, such as Superman.  In-general, weak characters are most interesting at their strongest, whereas strong characters are most interesting when they fail. 

 

As a result, you get Marvel being about weak people learning to be strong, and DC being about larger-than-life heroes failing to save someone.  It's a concept that definitely requires a bit more insight, and I don't know much about comics at all, but it's something that could be interesting to keep in mind when looking at the two and superheroes as a whole.  Really the only thing I heard is just the 'thesis statement', everything after that is just my interpretation of it based on writing knowledge.

Confession: I've never been caught watching porn, whether directly or indirectly. I guess I was born with the ability to cover my tracks. :holo:

 

I have been caught watching porn twice. Then I started using a different browser for porn so I could keep my tabs and history to continue the next time. It was a great system, then I started using reddit and now the system is long gone and my browser is full of pron tabs :(

Its more of a advice for tyrael thread atm so just wait for when other people ask for advice :sachi:

 

Yea well I expected people to take the thing more seriously and ask questions of their own. I see a ton of people with issues in this thread so I was hoping it would be helpful for them somehow...  :kosame:

This thread is mostly about armchair psychology.  People analyze themselves and let out their problems not expecting anyone to actually help them in anyway, and possibly in fact, make fun of them so that their problems seem to be trivialized.  It's actually quite an amazing idea.  It fulfills the role of "talking to other people about your problems" allowing you to sort them out, while at the same time having other people trivialize them with their own problems making you feel better.

Confession: I just watch Marvel to see superheroes beat stuff up

By "this thread" do you mean this thread, or the advice thread?
