Whoops I just found myself thinking that it would be convenient for this assignment for English if I had more monitors... I have 4... I was thinking along the lines of 6... oops... :P Dec 6, 2018 at 3:43 PM

        Exactly. :P One disadvantage: I had three white words and one white chrome open, it took me 20 seconds to find my cursor... :P For the rest, it's amazing and I couldn't live without my monitors. :D

        Sad. :P You should really get a second monitor, going from 1 to 2 is an insane difference and you won't be able to go back to just 1 after getting used to 2. Even a small, old monitor is amazing. :)

      Google Chrome, I hate you infinitely. They decided to make another update to the new hideous design, making it even worse and removing the option for the superior previous design. Ughhh and because it's so new, I have to wait until people (hopefully) post workarounds... >.< sigh.

        I don't pay attention to aesthetic details. My brain doesn't mark them as important.

        I sadly do, it happens without thinking about it. It's also one of the reasons why I'm still on Android 4.4.4 while my phone even officially supports much newer versions; I can't stand the new aesthetics.

      That is odd... I was just vaulting some stuff and out of nowhere my minecraft just closed... I'm using MultiMC, which always shows a log thingy when it crashes, but I didn't get that either... Weird.

        I started using MultiMC when the regular launcher kept logging out my accounts after a couple of days. MultiMC fixed the problem. Not long after the standard launcher was changed again (for the worse), so it was nice to already have moved on. :P MultiMC also allows for mods to be installed incredibly easily, which is nice.

        A disadvantage is that the world and screenshots folders are separate, but that can be fixed relatively easily by linking the folders together with some CMD magic. :D

      Sigh. >.< That moment when you want to see a livestream, but because of DST it's an hour earlier than usual, and for some reason gmail recently decided to put twitch's mails in "updates", a folder they don't deem necessary of sending you notifications for. Missed 40 minutes. >.<

      In 47 minutes EMC time will only be 5 hours in the past for me instead of 6 hours... :P I like daylight saving time (summertime and wintertime). :) When I lose an hour, it's less fun though - still fun and interesting, but I miss my hour. :P Now though, a free extra hour. :D

        I guess you're right, Tom. I used to be against DST just because of having to change the clocks and such, but I do actually like it being dark earlier in Winter and light later in Summer.

        @Soul: that sounds broken. Seems like you actually need more or different DST. ;)
        @607: yup, that is what I think many people aren't realising; how ridiculous the sun's rising/setting time is when we don't have DST. Thinking about it, I'm kind of surprised they only thought of it in the 1900s, seeing how big of an improvement it has on being able to live in the light.

        Humid Subtropical Cfa is the Koppen climate I live in, but it doesn't feel like that. Our record high in August is 42 degrees and record low in February is -26 degrees... So pretty extreme climate I live in.

        Blegh. He gave me notes cause I'm homebound for a day, and it showed the "macron is the long" and "micron is the short" when I still don't get *anything* about scansion so notes got caught up.. blegh... Thank you.

        Yes, but the the symbol thing a mijjigger on the notes was called "macron is long, micron is short" and I didn't quite get what "long" was at the time

        Ah. First hour = wake up at 7:10, second hour = wake up at 8:30. Sleeping goes in 90 minute intervals, so I try to sleep 1.5 × X hours. However, no first period is only 80 minutes later... causing me to forget that I don't have those last 10 minutes. :P

        Yup, except that on pc it's only a relatively small black bar, and you have a higher resolution to put it on in the first place (making it be smaller too), while on my phone it still shows the text and is significantly larger.

      At the moment there are 28 AliExpress packages coming to my house, some of which with multiple items inside them... Why am I addicted to buying random stuff on AliExpress...? :P It's so fun though, getting all these weird items you can't find anywhere else... :)

        Yeah, I sometimes think about that too, so I try to combine as many things as possible (e.g. buy multiple of one thing in one go, or buy multiple things from one seller in one go, so they can put all in one package). Also, many of the packages are super tiny (basically a post card, smaller even), so tiny and light that you sometimes wonder how it didn't get lost along the way... :P

        Speaking about getting lost on the way, so far, that's "only" happened three times... :P The weird thing is is that that wasn't even for super thin packages, those actually had some weight and size in them. For two of those (which together wasn't even worth 60 cents... :P) I decided to contact the usually great AliExpress support, and the third one will be resent next week, after talking with the nice seller. :)
