  1. Today
  2. Apparently GOG Galaxy broke when it comes to fetching games.  I'm using the old version, though I wouldn't be surprised if this happened in the new version.

     

    I discovered this when I decided to reinstall TIE Fighter only for it not to show up, despite me knowing for a fact I had purchased it and previously played it.  But it doesn't show up at all in searches of the library in Galaxy.  On the website it does show up, and when checking this out I noticed that I had literally one hundred more games listed on the website compared to Galaxy.

     

    I'm 90% sure I've found the issue.  Anything sold in a bundle will not show up on Galaxy.  So TIE Fighter didn't show up because GOG actually bundles the original game, the CD rerelease, and the 1998 "special edition" remake using the X-Wing vs. TIE fighter engine.  Similarly none of my Space Quest games show up since they are sold in a 1-3 bundle and a 4-6 bundle.  Anything with more than one entry to the store purchase won't show up.

     

    It had to have happened recently, since I successfully installed SWAT 2 about a month ago and that comes in a bundle with SWAT 1 (and neither game shows up in my galaxy library at the moment.)  DOOM and DOOM II even vanished from the galaxy version of the library due to the enhanced editions of those games being given to people who had previously purchased them.

      I've been playing Splatoon 3 and there's a track that is literally music (yeah yeah)

      I'm inclined to agree

      C-Side is better than most real bands. Don't @ me.

  5. Work that made people a furry by decade:

     

    20s: BNA, Helluva Boss

    10s: Zootopia, Pokemon (there were Pokewaifus before but it hit a critical mass here.)

    00s: Star Fox Assault, Digmon Tamers, Sonic Adventure 2

    90s: A lot of stuff, but most likely Space Jam or The Lion King.  I guess Rescue Rangers goes here too since it debuted right before the 90s.  SWAT Kats for kids who got in before Turner canceled it.  Hell I could probably add five or six more things; any kid growing up in this decade was doomed.

    80s: Fairly safe decade; only real Furry Bait was the Catillac section of Heathcliff and Gadget right at the end.  Lots of female animal characters, but I don't consider that inherently furbait.

    70s: Disney's Robin Hood.  Not much else, but it was enough.

    60s: Everything here is either "female animal with slight human attributes" or "female cartoon character with almost no sexual appeal."  These things only appeal to people who are actually furries, so it was a safe decade.

    50s and Earlier: There's some pretty weird blatant furbait stuff, the most famous of which probably being that "leg of lamb" joke in that Droopy cartoon.  But the stuff that would show up on TV was always isolated and unlikely to cause any real damage.

      On reflection, there were some important omissions:

       

      1960s: That squirrel from Sword in the Stone was pretty damn blatant.  I mean I guess she's still in the category of "animal with slight human attributes" but when she's hitting on the main character you can't ignore it.

      1970s: As a side note this is when the Fritz the Cat movies came out, i.e. the first mainstream-ish adult furry movies.  But no way any kid was getting within a mile of that so it doesn't affect this list.  A real omissions is that lion chick from the Star Trek cartoon show.  I guess you might throw the Rescuers in here because throwing Eva Gabor's voice on top of a mouse is just asking for trouble.

      1980s: I don't know how many people actually saw Animalympics back in the day, but it certainly fits here.  The Great Mouse Detective should also be included for that burlesque scene.  The dogs in Oliver and Company are kind of borderline; I mean yeah furries like them but I don't know if they would have caused confused feelings in children.

      1990s: Stuff I omitted: Tiny Toon Adventures, Samurai Pizza Cats, Road Rovers, SatAM Sonic the Hedgehot, Mirri n Magic the Gathering, Animaniacs (I don't know how much Minerva Mink actually made an impact considering how infrequently she appeared but man it doesn't get more blatant than this).  I guess we can throw Dragon Tales here as well, and to top things off this is where furry webcomics started to explode.  Kids were screwed.

      And then big oil would probably try to assassinate me, thus starting my villain arc. Sure would be a shame if all their tankers combusted at once...

      Here the problem is that the near instantaneous swap from "barely out of winter" to "height of summer heat" caused really high winds and multiple tornados.  Though somehow all the damage went out in a bubble around where I live.

  14. In isolation DeepL will translate メスガキ as "female brat."

     

    But in the context of longer phrases I've seen it translate it to "little bitch," "meth head," "meshuggah" and in one particularly bizarre instance "anonymous scholarship system for orphans whose parents have been killed in traffic accidents."

     

    Have yet to see it use Pixiv's gloss of "sassy loli" though.

      While investigating this topic I discovered that the "gaki" is apparently written as 餓鬼, i.e. starving demon.  This in turn relates to the "hungry ghosts" or pretas in the six realms of the Buddhist cosmology, which are reincarnations of those with too much gluttonous karma.  It's kind of bizarre that that's the default term for "brat" though I guess historically it developed to specifically refer to a spoiled brat, i.e. one who is so gluttonous as to become a preta in the next life.

  16. MFW I switch my avatar to a furry to try to derail a conversation into further complaints about furries while claiming to want to get it back on track but it doesn't work because I'm posting on a website where everyone is too familiar with my shenanigans.

      Everyone in my neck of the woods, including me, also has a sore throat.  Though mine seems to have faded tonight.  Never got any symptoms with it other than the sore throat but other people have got headaches and fevers.

    I've got a can of Dr. Pepper in one hand and my flip phone in the other.

    Chicken tendies warming in a microwave I got from a junkyard.

    I'm set to tuturu.

  24. Is it normal for there to be a guy handing out full crates of cookies for free when you leave the grocery store?

     

    And hypothetically speaking if I were to accept such a crate of free cookies, should I be worried about getting poisoned?

    1. Raison d'être

      No, and yes. But free cookies are worth it.

      I get free cookies all the time just visiting web sites so I dunno they're not so valuable they can't be given out for free. Just don't get a virus from them
