    Technology XP support is ending... plans?

    Don't if you can avoid it. Win10 is a spyware enslavement nightmare, an insult. A massive step towards the customer serving the business. The only Win10 that would be minimally tolerable from a privacy standpoint is the Corporate edition, but I don't think that's easy to get. But usability is an even greater step backwards than from WinXP to Win7. I am currently running a Threadripper on Win7, and I cannot imagine what the future would look like. (A general thing for me, not just regarding computers.) Anyone who has a 'fresh mind' I highly encourage to commit to Linux.
  2. Firefly and MLP These two scenes always remind me of each other. It is the same archetype of the veteran/mentor true noble who treats the 'fools of the court' as they deserve. The one who can see through all the phony aristocracy, yet exist in it. I have a moderate suspicion that the MLP scene might have been inspired by the Firefly one. There are certain visual and thematic similarities.

  5. This is the inevitable ultimate outcome of problems growing. As expressed in the yin-yang symbol, the universe seeks a return from extremes, bears the seed for a turnaround in each. Balance brings health. If we move towards health, we have the universe itself as an ally. If we move towards sickness ... only all of humankind including ourselves, haha.

  8. How very fitting that this was performed by the Dazzlings. Escapism is flight, running. Seems necessary sometimes, but a temporary relief confirms what you run away from. A repetitive, uneventful series of days can be torment for some, bliss for others. It all depends on the inner state, but which is reflecting the outside world. Meaning, if society is healthy, people can lead the same clichée-boring lives as today, 9-5- cubicle job and such, and be fulfilled and content. Because the context matters. Who and what are you working for? Deeper meaning, eve

  14. I know it's probably much more marketing than taste variety, but still, how could -I- possibly pass -this- up? I did skip the pony-themed one though, because, I mean, that's really just shameless. SUPPLEMENT: They got a mild berry flavor. The violet ones a bit more distinct, like dark berries. (I am generally not getting excited about this common wine gum stuff anymore. But they're alright.) SUPPLEMENT 2: The sugared ginger-lemon stuff they have is much more exciting. The smell reminds me of sweaty feet and urinal cakes (that will be the ginger ), but the taste is

  16. It's relatively common among enthusiasts to customize the paint.
  17. Yeah, it rolls off the tongue more naturally. And the Pinkie one would really be the best for self-representation. But the Fluttershy one feels more like traveling with a good friend to me, and would likely also make me ride safer, haha. BTW it's sad that in Germany they don't even have the white-based version of the R3; only black and dark blue, both without those wheel stripes. If I had to get one in stock color, I would have to say nope. Don't like either one. - I mean, the vendor said they can easily source the other parts, but I'm pretty sure that means you end up with duplicate
  18. I miss the feeling. (The fact that the body coloring creates such a good impression of mane and tail is torture. ... Anyone wanna electrostart my long dormant happiness?) ... And here is the PinkR3 Pie version, which is probably more theme-appropriate, but the Fluttershy one just feels nicer to me. ... This would probably be quite enjoyable, too: ...although I think I would prefer PrincYS Luna style for that one: ... OK, now the R3 is mandatory, since I got TWO puns with her name and have
  19. First this appeared in S2E9 - Sweet and Elite: And now this in Equestria Girls - Spring Breakdown Part 5 'Hoofin' It': Note how the old one has, arguably as a bit of an immersion breaker, a more realistic painted art style, but the new one has the cheese that is such an upgrade. Various elements became more odd/abstract, and the wear marks near the corners are mostly identical, too. One could spin all kinds of theories as to what happened here. Diegetically this would mean that the wear marks are intended part of the piece and this is the artist's
  20. It wouldn't be Spike the Master Schemer if it was easy to see through. ...And then the final grand plot reveal: It was all just a dream ... about time travel ... in a parallel universe.
  21. Not only did Spike exploit a sibling rivalry in a sibling rivalry, but he created it in the first place. Spike asked Thorax to impersonate Celestia while she was on important business and instructed him to deliberately brush off all of Luna's security advice to make her susceptible to allying with him for the betrayal. Spike also hired Grogar to abduct all castle guards and replaced them with changelings so that they would be unrealistically easy to distract. Shining Armor was also a changeling, that's why he seemed totally fine with his security being circumvented. The real one woul
