    sounds like a dying hard drive to me based on similar experiences with PCs over the years

    You could try factory resetting it. Otherwise as 'Wainds said, the HDD is probably dead.

    Sooo I may be back here more often. Had been hanging out on r/metal and it's Discord due to the large userbase, but the lefty/SJW crowd has become so outspoken it's unbearable. It's to the point you can't have a simple conversation without "Oh, well they may be sketch because once they toured with band X, who's ex-guitarist had a tattoo that may or may not represent _____." Can you kindly shut the fuck up with your mock offense so we can talk about music please? I've even tried humoring them a couple of times with some mild agreement on the matter to satiate them, but it only makes them more rabid.

    You look other places and it's a bunch of right wing racist nutjobs, or at the bare minimum edgelords trying to come off as such. Unfuckinbelievable.

    Why does everything have to devolve into politics? And it's not even the interesting kind like policy disagreements where a thoughtful discussion can be had. Just a bunch of tribal far-left or far-right "repeat after me exactly verbatim or you're the enemy" kind of horse shit.

    I recommend the Revelation of Doom forum man. Huge userbase, diverse, active, all kinds of discussions, no real rabid political atmosphere that I've seen.

    RoD is the way to go. It’s like NWN’s old forum but they removed all political bullshit (illegal to talk about, just like it should be on all metal forums) and favoriting labels that were friends to the nwn family.



    I post there as Bones. Not nearly as often as I have here in the past but it’s my go to now that things are pretty empty here and no one really talks about anything new any more.

    Somehow fell in lust with the girl who is going to remain celibate for the foreseeable future

    She's decided that she wants to spend a huge amount of time hanging out with me

    Oh, wait,
    this should be in the males and females thread

    i know this is about the most first world problem imaginable but i am endlessly enraged by the design of the spotify desktop app. it's like every update is deliberately calculated to make it worse than before. their latest genius idea was to stop the search bar being at the top at all times (fucking retarded) and to put every band and album name in size zillion font so it takes up half the screen. also have to constantly restart it because it won't load searches for whatever reason. total abomination designed by cumstains. the mobile app is ok i guess.

    Quite possible they're just defunding development of the desktop app over time (incl. copypasting the mobile design over to the desktop version regardless of sloppy formatting) since an increasing % of users are mobile-only.

    Ran into a similar first world tech issue with Instagram where they removed the icon for adding multiple photos to a post. Now you have to hold down on the first photo you want in a set to add more. Makes complete sense.

    how sloppy could the formatting be??
    how expensive could it be??
    the desktop version should look like the mobile-app version instead of the horrible way it actually looks

    @Terasophe
    you mentioned how horrible your ex was when talking about how awesome your new girl is
    and then i thought you'd really need to vent about your horrible ex

    but then i thought
    you're a male-transitioning-into-female
    you're a music-writer (as opposed to a singer/instrument-player who just has someone else write all their music)
    you're online a lot (as opposed to @MasterpieceMesias just popping in like one day a month)
    and i remembered you used to own a sailor moon shirt

    so then i thought you would feel the need to vent online (as opposed to just talking out-loud to someone face-2-face)

    so, if you actually feel the need to make a long-as-hell internet-post about how super-horrible your ex was, then you really should prolly just go ahead and do that here in this thread (instead of a social media page)

    yes I'm addicted to this site
    but it's really just an internet addiction
    if this site stopped existing I'd either become addicted to Facebook and/or become the person that edits Wikipedia
