TopG removed the captcha again... but put in a "one more step" thingy beforehand... that I get almost everytime... so it's actually gotten worse, as this takes longer because the page has to load again... Sigh. :P Oct 4, 2019

      I don't understand how people can mix up "apart" and "a part"... One is an adverb/adjective while the other is just an article with a noun, and they have completely different definitions...

        But they sound pretty much the same. Like "they're", "their" and "there".

        They sound less similar than your example, though, and they're (:rolleyes:) definitions are also easier to keep apart (:D) (to be honest, I also don't entirely understand how "they're", "their", and "there" are confused so much, but still. :P).

      I'm still trying to figure out if you're serious about bidding or just like nice sequences of numbers :P

        Hahahahaha, both actually. :PI like to bid and get the stuff, and often do so through nice numbers - much more interesting than just all those round thousands. :D

      Dangit, I had been voting consistently literally every day before midnight for over 4 months, but today I finally broke that streak... I was in the shower while my alarms went, and apparently did not realise that it had already been past midnight until now... big whoops. :P

        Grrrrr my alarms didn't go off today because of no good reason..... -_- I got the "Clock has stopped" message 3 times much earlier today, but forgot to restart my phone then, and didn't think much of it... turns out to have been a bad call, sigh... I hate this thing my phone sometimes does, where it randomly decides alarms just don't need to go off... it's why I also use my old phone as a wake up alarm... :P

        No Tom, that would be a terrible idea, it would make me do even less for school... :P To be fair: I'm currently in the middle of a test week and I didn't open any books since it started, but, you know, even I tend to at least go there, and I prefer to keep it that way :P

        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 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
