    Its getting more and more difficult to have "friends" online, I went from like an ICQ with 20 buddies to a Steamchat with 3 friends. then I got in an argument with one so that went down to two friends.
    And now one of those hasn't been online in over 4 weeks so he's either on a vacation or he died of covid.

    And now we've also lost Meatloaf and Louie Anderson.



    Life's getting grim.

    Louie Anderson? His body of work (besides comedy) is mainly unfamiliar to me unlike Meatloaf who I have a greater understanding and/or attachment.

    Eh, I mostly knew him from the cartoon. but he was apparently a decent standup comedian.
    but the cartoon was comfy as fuck.

    Anyone else noticed the sham that has become of the YouTube search function? It's like Google now, it only shows you what it wants to promote, not what might be most relevant. Make a search, get 6 or 7 relevant videos from some huge channels, then it gets tired so it shows a "for you" section totally irrelevant to your search, then a bunch of stuff vaguely relevant including repeats of the same damn videos every 8 or so, gets tired and shows a "previously watched" selection, totally irrelevant.

    This thing is fully gimped now, it's worthless. You can't discover content on the site with it efficiently anymore. They don't give a shit whether new or under-viewed matching videos get found, it just wants to promote big channels that have plenty of ad space. Do they think people don't realize how narrow the scope of the search results have gotten? This is shit.

    The "don't recommend" button doesn't work on certain channels such as MrBeast and SSSniperWolf because they likely pay to have their shit shoehorned into the recommendations panel.

    Or you could use Invidious, a front-end for YouTube that uses the normal API functionality (but without the bullshit surrounding it), and then use the actual YT UI when you have to.

    And yeah, forums are like old folks' homes at this stage... no new people coming in.

    Interestingly, 4chan and co. are still frequently used among people my age, but not forums, could be brand/name familiarity and the fact it's rather mainstream compared to forums.

    Forums tend to be relegated to "if one has a question" (and the software is preferred to be XenForo or IPS, other stuff is old and ugly) and even then it ends up being asked on Discord instead, which means no one can find it in the future just by searching for the problem. Those who actively partake seem to then mostly end up turning the whole board into an identity politics war, seen that happen a few times now in the past few years.

    The 32X deserved to exist, if only to pave the way for the creation of the best waifu ever.

    Google in general is shit for searching for something. I used to have a load of userscripts to minimize their spam, but it's pointless now. Still looking for an alternative that doesn't suck as much as they do.

    I'm still a Bing user ever since it was released, mostly for the free gift cards. Worth a try, the results are a little different from Google sometimes.

    There's duckduckgo, or if using google or bing, you can search in a private browser so your cookies won't influence the results.
