Welcome home. Quilt 08/13/2019 (Tue) 02:35:16 No. 1 [Reply] [Last]
Back in the 8chan days the idea of a /late/ image-board, independent of our parent site was something of a pipe dream. Now we are here, long after our obscure birth in 2015. I couldn't have set all this up without the help of my friend Max, who also made the radio at radio.late.city, though other people contributed music to it. (Give us suggestions! https://late.city/late/res/38.html) We hope to be in for the long haul, and for you to be in it with us. Enjoy, sleepy anons. And again, Welcome; You have a friend in /late/ 27/02/2021 [Friends of /late/] https://anon.cafe/comfy/ 01/09/2020 Hi guys! Sorry for the downtime. We had some weird issues with images and a few other things. Most things should be back to normal now.

Minecraft is a comfy game, so we have a server! - A near-vanilla server on version 1.16.5 @ late.city A map for it exists @ https://map.late.city It normally updates once every 24 hours. Try /guide for more information on the server, Quantic and Max made a neat little index that is still being updated. Happy playing! P.S. Leave us a message in the mailbox at spawn, we read them! The Minecraft server at late.city now allows cracked users to play by registering a password against the user name they provide to their client upon joining the server for the first time. Premium account users keep their skins and log in automatically. Everyone wins this way! [NOTICE FOR CRACKED USERS] - 23/09/20 If you attempt to join while playing on a cracked account that has a username that is taken by a premium account it will disconnect you with the error of 'bad login' or 'invalid session'.

Confession Anonymous 11/03/2019 (Sun) 06:30:12 No. 224 [Reply] [Last]
Finally broke down at 4am and told my father about the depression, the suicidal thoughts, and all the other shit that I've kept to myself for the past year. He had no idea about any of it, most people didn't. Even those who knew about parts of it never knew the fill picture.
It felt really good, lads.
The /late/ hours are the best for sorrow and depression, but also for confession and empathy.

Post what is on your mind. Speak freely.

>>5306 at heart i'm an existialist, but i wholeheartedly understand inclinations towards suicide. For the majority of my teenage years I wanted to neck myself. At this point I have a sadomasochistic relationship with life as I suffer but I'm bound to this earth until sickness or age takes me.
I understand people wanting to kill themselves perfectly, but I think we end up paying for suicide on the other side.
>>2433 If they would go out of their way to help, why wouldn't they give you some emotional reassurance? Are they incapable of helping that way, or is it that you haven't opened up to them fully when you're down? >>2434 Maybe you should stop masturbating for a while, and remember what it's like to be cool headed without abusing your dick. >>2505 I'd wager he didn't want to pass down his name to you so you don't get into trouble. Many such cases in the movies >>4639 Sounds like you need to change your whole life, and by that I mean go to a new city, new job, meet new people...etc. I'd even tell you to try going to a different country altogether if it's really bad, you most probably just need to get out of your environment as it's not giving your life any meaning. >>5140 Life has its ups and downs. Whenever you're in a rut, just remember how you got past the bad times before. I saved your post because sometimes I need to hear it too. >>5164 What you need is religious/spiritual consoling, which I'm not sure if you're open to. I can tell you this; everything has a beginning and an end, one day your life will end and you'll get off the roller coaster for good, no more living life as you know it. What comes after, whether nothingness or some divine event, is a mystery that is not worth obsessing over.

Marlboro studs for special occasions. Pouches for everything else. I keep telling myself I'll quit when I find a gf. I plan on becoming a cigar enthusiast once I've got money. Maybe Monte Cristo on the weekends & kuba kubas for a nightly cigar @ my innawoods cabin

>>694 I quit smoking two months ago. A few packs of Camels over a week was my go-to. I've never tried anything else that was so satisfying. It started to scare me more and more. Now I just buy a cigar every now and then. I've thought about pipe smoking too, but I don't want to kid myself too much about it being healthier. Tobacco is amazing. I fucking hate how all the beautiful things in life give you cancer.
>>5392 Pipe smoking isn't healthier if you do it multiple times a day, but if you don't inhale and are able to be responsible with it, you shouldn't have too many problems, at least not compared to cigarettes. I smoke a pipe about once a week to once every two weeks. It's nice, but it definitely takes practice before it really becomes something enjoyable. I'm still not very good at it honestly. I like to smoke it at night, but smoking it in the morning before work as the sun slowly rises is peak /comfy/.

I pay tutanota for the email aliases. e-mail is fundamentally insecure though. Obviously Gmail or Outlook are bad news, but I wouldn't waste too much time thinking about it. In terms of search engines though, I used to use DDG, and I love their bangs, to search other websites directly. So I could go !g to search Goolag, or !alt to check for alternatives on alternativeto. Brave search implemented the same feature, and I'm loving the experience. Give it a shot sometime. https://search.brave.com/

What books have you been reading lately, /late/?

I started reading Cien Años de Soledad today, jumped in blind. No idea what to expect outside of Márquez's reputation.
I started reading Taleb's Black Swan's today. I'm going to need to read it again to really understand what he's on about, but he presents a lot of interesting ideas about human deception lying in academia and business.
Ellen Wayland-Smith - Oneida: From Free Love Utopia to the Well-Set Table Uell Stanley Anderson - Three Magic Words Kerry Bolton - Yockey: A Fascist Odyssey I've finished the sections of the first book that interest me and am doing the same for the latter. Not to get too political, but I'd like the Yockey book better if the author would quit adding his political commentary and citing spurious sources regarding his views on WWII. I find the subject an interesting figure, even if I disagree with his views on a ton of things. Lately I've been reading just for the sake of learning things that interest me and not just reading all the way through books just to check them off a mental list of things I've read. >>927 I had no idea that there was a second Yurope book. >>1976 In retrospect, I found it much more enjoyable than The Lord of the Rings. >>5384 I've been meaning to check him out. He seems like a dickhead, albeit an intelligent one with some good ideas.

Hey sleepy heads, I don't usually draw attention to myself. I'd rather stay anon and enjoy the content but I'm old and I'm tired of image boards. It's been 15 years on them now and there's very little reason to remain. I wasted the best years of my life reading crappy posts, making shitty memes and isolating myself in a bubble away from the real world. I wish I had never discovered image boards and had made better use of that time. I hope this post will make people reflect on their own interactions with the internet and think "What else could I be doing now? What is the best use of my time?" Don't waste your life reading posts by someone you will never meet, who spends all their time reading posts by people he will never meet. Go out there, get some experiences, become a fully fleshed person instead of a wraith with edgy humour. Goodnight /late/. The sun will always rise, don't waste the night hiding from it.

>>5288 A couple years ago or so, I modified that browser (and also Lynx) to work with my OpenBSD firewall. The way it worked is all traffic was blocked, both in and out. In order to do anything at all, I had to tell the firewall to allow traffic to/from a remote IP. So I wrote a small script to do this (using pf tables), and the browsers would call this script with the URL that I selected, and it would extract the domain name and resolve the IP(s) and add them to the "ok" table. But first it cleared the table out completely, so that only that one set of IP(s) was functional at any given time. It was just an experiment I tried, for fun. The idea was basically sound and it worked for simple sites, but not so well for sites that have data all over the place on CDNs, where the site might be loading images, scripts, or other data from unpredictable hostnames. So for example, my script knew that if I went to wikipedia.org, it also needed to allow upload.wikimedia.org (because that was simple enough to include as a dependency for wikipedia in the script). But for CDNs sites, they use all kinds of hostnames and there's no way to tell what those will be, and I can't included all of those hostnames because there's thousands of them, and there's no definitive list... So I pretty much just gave up on the idea, since it would have required me to add some kind of "Allow this host?" runtime prompt for every hostname in HTML pages. I guess this is basically what the ad-blocker scripts do for Firefox & Co. except they don't use the OS firewall. Just guessing here, because I dont' use any kind of script or add-ons for those browsers, since I try to avoid using them at all. So I kinda gave up on that for now, and haven't really done anything special with Links. It doesn't work well with many imageboards, because it gets hung up on cloudflare protection stuff related to cookies and/or referer. I didn't bother to troubleshoot that and just don't go to those sites. One time I did write a long post only to find out I was getting blocked (cloudflare thinks I'm a bot or malware), and since this is the framebuffer where cut & paste doesn't work, I had to extract my post from memory so I could paste it into Lynx via GNU Screen. Here's how to do it in case that happens to you ($PID is the Links process): $ gdb -pid $PID gdb> gcore /tmp/links.core gdb> detach gdb> quit $ strings /tmp/links.core |less

Speaking of the devil (CDNs).
>>2918 The reality for most people is that if they hadn't wasted their time on imageboards, they would have wasted it on something else, even just being idle if they had literally cut out every time waster from their lives. Imageboards are not the cause for your wasted time. They are just a symptom and your particular avenue of choice. You are just looking for something to pin your wasted youth on. It's something that most people regret and few are able to come to terms with. There is a reason that "Youth is wasted on the young" is such a famous quote.
>>2940 That is absolutely true, and I learned that the hard way. After taking classes and reading all about "logical thinking" and the works for years, I found that none of it holds when arguing with idiots; they don't think logically, and even if they did they won't be willing to change their mind. That being said I did learn valuable information from debating with few people on IBs and similar, who were educated and patient enough to hold a proper debate. >>3007 >with imageboards' hostile environment making my pre-existing self-esteem problem even worse. Strange, my experience was the exact opposite. IBs were always a good outlet for my creativity and a source of inspiration. Sometimes I would create material that is appealing and I get praise, other times I create material that is unappealing but still (sometimes) get pieces of constructive feedback... We probably frequented different IBs or different boards on the same IB. >>3117 >board is dying >let's scatter some more Brilliant thinking mate.
>>5292 Doesn't links2 have a graphics mode you can use to display images? >>5301 Some things are marginally more useful or yield memories or experiences that help you mature. People wasted time before the internet, but they usually had to interact with others or at least physical objects. Imageboards are an addiction to data that at best endow you with the powers of data manipulation if you are very proactive at going about things, enough to become a wizard. For a lot of less fortunate people, their youth is simply made up of trying to make the best of a bad situation. >>5350 "Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." Even if people are smart, most of them only argue to beat down on others. There is this idea expressed by Socrates and a Middle Eastern poet that I paraphrase as you can't teach someone something he doesn't already know. If that's unclear, I mean to say you can a light on something to make them see it in a new way, but that thing has got to be on the horizon of that person's reality in the first place. >even if they did they won't be willing to change their mind That's the best you can hope for along with understanding why and not just that they're wrong. It's easier to change someone's mind not with words but with a change of their circumstances. It's quite possible you both could have had those wildly different experiences on the same board on the same IB at the same time. Gatekeeping is okay if you're afraid of cross-contamination, but let's not pretend something isn't elitism when it clearly is. I've heard the old excuse that someone wouldn't be interested in some niche topic too many times.

welcome to /ltv/! it's your fiendly lainanon here i got support for this in the general thread(>>3940 and >>3943) so i'm going to put us up to the test. here's the plan: 1) in this thread, we'll write anything we really want. Give us poems, short stories, movie/book/show recommendations, food for thought, etc. only requirement is to put some effort in. with the usual traffic, we should get a good amount of entries if everyone is contributing. that includes me, of course, expect to see something of mine here. 2) i will take what we make here and make it into a video. add some flair to make, make it comfy and something calming to listen to at night, and read/narrate what we've got. it's that simple! it's a really raw idea, but i like it, and we can refine it over time. so let's get to it!

hey /late/, what happened to those friends you used to hang out with?
17 posts and 3 images omitted.
A lot of moving made me lose contact with them. Most of them are married now. I miss them. I decided recently to make new friends. It's been awhile since I've had any but isolation is a mind killer. I get anxiety talking to people these days, but I trust it'll pass if I just keep trying, and that I'll feel more like myself again.
>>5267 >but I trust it'll pass if I just keep trying, and that I'll feel more like myself again. I was like you but stopped caring, I mean really stopped caring about anyone. Do not worry about it, friends really do go a long way. If you have weird hobbies and interests, you will see people with a like mind will come to you. Just don't reveal your powerlevel right off.
>>5079 Gradually, I deliberately drifted away from them. I think this was a combination of my refusal to socialise through social media and their own changing worldviews. Friends who had formerly simply been a joy to be around either gradually lost their personality through (in some cases highly successful) absorption into general society, or became full of spite and self-hatred in an attempt to fit into the current zeitgeist. I've been able to grow somewhat after cutting them out, but have occasional regrets. This is either a result of nostalgia for the good times we had together, or sudden pangs of loneliness. I have yet to find new friends to fill their place. Most importantly, friends who I know in ten or so years' time will create those same fond memories and feelings of nostalgia.
we all moved to different places, now there is just small talk. they have lives and things to be doing, so I understand.

Hi /late/, I have been lurking here for years now; feel like posting some stuff I would not really share elsewhere. Right now I am vibing off 800mg DXM, a few bumps of ketamine, 20mg oxycodone, a shot of lab ethanol, and an edible lmao, so sorry if I am scattered :( Anyway, over the past year or so I have felt very distant from "normal" people. For a long time I ended up being a lot like every one else, not because I had a desire to follow, rather, it was because it was the path of least resistance; a state driven by lack of thought. The recent pandemic has been interesting to me, while I had never felt normal or had a strong desire to be normal the pandemic was sobering in many ways. My country had a strict lockdown for months and months - very long - this is where I noticed how starkly different I was; while others cried and complained about not being able to get hammered with their friends I pulled my socks up and made positive changes to my life. It was sobering to see most of my friends spend this time drinking alone, watching netflix, and complaing, what the fuck is wrong with most people. It is funny to see how most people default to what others are doing, and when there isn't immediate signalling, self destruct. I spent probably about 7ish months alone with minimal social contact (no voice chats or that shit, saw one friend in the park occasionally) and I was fine- I didnt feel sad to be alone- yet most of my friends were so impacted by this sudden exposure to isolation. It was so reassuring to see this difference, in many ways it made me feel stronger; I could maintain a large socially life and just drop it at a dime and not even look back. Looking at life with this experience has been so great. I have stopped talking to some people who were poor influences, talked more to those who were good to me, and have felt more contempt with a smaller social circle. I have stopped watching TV shows, films, playing vidya; have spent pretty much all that excess time exercising, studying, playing music, and cooking. Things have been good, have developed a six pack in like 2 months lmao. This has gone on long enough. Point is my dear /late/ browsers is that life can be what you want it to be, norms in your life can morph - whether that be due to externalities or your own fruition - don't follow the crowd and question why you do what you do. Peace.

>>5154 >over the past year or so I have felt very distant from "normal" people. I've been in a similar situation but different reasons. Everyone is so alien. I keep getting lost in thought observing people and their mannerisms. I cant stop thinking about how weird and scary humanity actually is; I get so lost I forget I exist. I can still carry out a conversation like everyone else but I would still find bliss in indefinite solitude. I know I will die someday but I hope I can still observe after that.
>>5154 >Things have been good, have developed a six pack in like 2 months lmao. advice? wanting to start working out / being healthy but i don't really know where to begin
>>5195 I find the isolation to be self-reinforcing - didn't ever feel so blissful before. I find the propensity for solitude comes from an analytical mind, I spend a lot of time doing high level physics, applied maths, control (etc...), so am used to periods of strong extended focus; conversation doesn't usually call for that sort of focus so can feel weird when I have been consistently lost in work. Drugs do wonders for breaking down barriers tho, socializing is ultimately something everyone should do frequently even if it doesn't seem essential. >>5248 Method depends on where you're at now. If you're fat, just diet and increase the amount of cardio you do (walking is easy and ~20% less effective per distance than running). Running is good for keeping weight down and also increasing health; trick with it is consistency, start small and work up. I mostly do bodyweight shit since gyms are closed, and I started with a decent base since I had done running in the past. As for body weight stuff and just working out in general, doing 3 or so sets of 10 reps and allowing yourself to fail in the last set is a decent enough rule of thumb. Do push ups if you dont have a base, try to get 10 in a set, if you cant do 10 do less than that. Lunges/squats are good for legs if youre starting. Once you can do ~50-60 push ups in a row, you can do more difficult shit like pseudo planche pushups, frog stands... I rate pseudo planche pushups since they use a lot of your upper body. Lots more I could say, but the jist is just consistency. Eat well, dont eat junk food, try to cook your own shit, and eat mostly lean meat, dairy, rice, pasta, oats, veggies, and fruit. Stick to the exercises, take breaks every couple days if you notice strain.
>>5248 Are you into sugary drinks? I've never been overweight, but I've found cutting them out of my diet to be one of the easiest changes I've made as far as improving my diet goes. For exercise, I'd second bodyweight exercises like pushups, squats, and pull-ups. You don't even need equipment for a lot of them.
>>5264 Used to drink that stuff when I was a kid, used to mix them a bit with spirits but havent done that in years. One thing to note is that drinking can be a bit of a hinderance, I have a high alcohol tolerance so try not to get drunk too much haha. Soft drinks do have loads of sugar though, which isnt really used to build muscle, just good for giving you energy to do exercise - amounts of energy you would only really use if you were running 20+ kms frequently. Also if you are a drinker, realize that ethanol is high energy by itself, and is absorbed preferentially to other energy sources, so if you drink a fuck tonne - even spirits or pure shit - you can gain a bunch of weight lmao. Never happened to me, but am more of a binger

I think it was the first time I realized that I can change the world, or at least change the way my sister hit the clock on every tick just to see what happened. The time has really flown by I guess and it's hard to think of the way it might've been, or remember very specifically the words and all the rest of it. I was down, more than I'll ever be probably. That is what we do with it all together, like the orange trees in the backyard, and it's Easter, and it just won't end Fucking Phil, he's off on his board somewhere and I'm just sitting here getting more and more lost with everything And that was the thing about it, it's not as if a cousin promised something and taken it away. It was like nobody could share my so-called dreams, which really meant none of it was happening, and that reach around midnight left her with just about that, nothing. There's not anything particular about it either, and I think the whole thing gets vaguer every second, but I am too and there's nothing wrong with that. It's even funny when you stop to realize I'm just nineteen And how serious can anything be anyway? Not very. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB7iPiFExN4

Any games with no intro cutscene? Anonymous 12/18/2020 (Fri) 12:34:33 No. 2017 [Reply]
Something I'd like to see more in modern video games and of which I have almost no examples, are solo adventure games that immediately begin with gameplay after pressing "new game". No cutscene. Most games have an introduction cutscene to expose the story...what if certain games threw you immediately into gameplay without a single bit of cutscene, and then showed cutscenes later. The only games I can think of that do this is are Crash Bandicoot 1, Yume Nikki and the Final station. It's the only ones i know that do this. Do you know of games like this? Besides very old games from the third or fourth generation like Zelda 1, Super Mario World or Sonic if possible.

Half-Life technically has no intro cutscene, but you're stuck on the train so idk
I think Rain World does that. >>2035 The Half-Life not-cutscene is worse IMO. At least a cutscene means you can skip it.
