I guess that may not have been the most precise way of describing what I mean, but the core of what I'm getting at is the assumption that the user can only do one thing at a time, can only look at one window at a time, and so is forbidden from having access to more than any one thing at a time. This might make some sense on a small screen where your only input device is a substantial fraction of the screen's width, and that's about the only place it might make some sense.

You get one window in Discord or Slack, which means everything else you were doing when you decide you want to search is obscured\a pain in the neck if you're trying to compare things, or are referencing something. Switch channels and you might get taken to the source of your most recent notification, but be careful not to switch away before you've caught up or you'll lose your place and you might have to scroll up quite a ways to find it again. The prefs dialog similarly obscures everything entirely until you're done with it. In iTunes, as another example, you can no longer open a playlist in a separate window and compare/manage playlists easily. Why? Because you can't do that on a phone, so why would you do it on a computer? Want to view the album artwork as more than a thumbnail? Say goodbye to the entire rest of the UI. A lot of websites will make it hard to open pages in a new tab, requiring an interruption in flow to access whatever's being linked. If it was in an infinite-scroll column, you have to restart the flow from the beginning because you've now lost your place, and it might be generated differently this time because chronological ordering is apparently lame and for suckers.

Agree on all points. The best boards I've found so far tend to be anonymous text boards with a community big enough to be active, but small enough to not be inundated by shitposters, like dqn, saovq, and 6ch. Of course, these sites still have their own problems and drama.

Oh, I completely agree. I think the commercialization and corporate takeover of the internet is one major reason that the systems are not really improving for the users. In many ways they are actually getting worse. Addictive content drip-feed with infinite scroll and emoji reactions to keep you mindlessly engaged with the least effort possible.
[I disagree with the idea that Nazis are one of the biggest problem with modern social media; I think they are far less widespread than people make them out to be, and act as a distraction from the bigger issue, but that's a whole 'nother can of worms.]

There are some advantages to modal behavior when speed is a more important factor--it can reduce precision requirements--but it's especially frustrating that most modalities in practice do not warrant such extreme restrictions and do not take advantage of reduced precision at all.
The essence of information technology is communication. So it's something of a crime that the trends have been away from a computer where everything in it can talk to everything else if so desired (which modalities do interfere with). This is, as far as I can tell, what Alan Kay was really thinking as a pie-in-the-sky ideal when it came to his conception of an "object". Not so much any implementation attempt, separate reinvention of it, or rigid bastardization of it, but rather the idea that if you kept building it, you'd eventually be making a Star Trek sort of computer that doesn't need a protocol for every damned thing, it is itself the protocol. This was a legitimate point Terry Davis (pbuh) had, that computers had stopped having this sense of fun as fewer and fewer programs could be lego'd with each other and within themselves.
Yeah, yeah, security and performance and shit, but I expected by now it'd be a default behavior to like, drag and drop all sorts of things that programs currently don't let you (and the current crop probably never will) as a form of basic bitch automation. Just as an example, putting a bunch of web search queries into a text file, dragging the file or selection into the browser, and have them open a bunch of tabs.
I should have understood human nature a little better. The average users aren't as interested in making the computer work hard for them as they are interested in feeling like they aren't working hard at all. And then it became accepted practice to fully commit to chasing and converting these uninterested people to computing instead of leaving options open.
There was recently a post out there by some guy whose job at Microsoft was Task Manager back in the 90s. He'd clearly spent a lot of time thinking about ways to make it as good at the task as possible while also making it appear very bare bones.

>>701 oh, yeah, i totally understand what u mean now. It's awful. Though on the website tip at least it's not the bad old days when half the web including every gubmint website required IE6.

On that note fuck mozilla for banning the user agent switching extensions, im still mad about that

707 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9844 06:54

Yeah it might be that the cancel culture campaigns or nextdoor/fb gossip/racism is a bigger website element than the nazis, for instance. In any case, the websites incentivize bad behaviour because controversy increases traffic. Im not super familiar with what it's like to actually use these sites regularly anymore.

708 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9844 08:03

>>701 That bugs me too, I've happily been using iTunes since the beginning basically and it got better and tighter and more useful, then I think it started going downhill about version 8 when they added Genius. It seems like each version they add something new I have no use for and take away or change something I liked about it. Especially not being able to open a big version of the album art anymore, what a shame...

709 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9844 08:52

There are still government websites that require IE, although in my experience it seems like they aren't consistent anymore about which version is the right one, and sometimes you just see a boilerplate compatibility disclaimer from one of the previous iterations of the site. So if you don't happen to be running Windows you still get to play Internet2004™ and try all the browsers until you either get through or find out that nope, they hired the crappy developers again this time.

I was a SoundJam MP holdout for a long time, but then I got gifted a nice iPod and yeah. For me I think iTunes 10 was the last version I was happy with. I assumed 11 was a hasty beta rollout and they'd fill things in later and it'd eventually be fine like it was with OSX itself, but, well...

Yeah, don't get me started on the iPhone's Music app, either.

Minor 7th chords are beautiful, and so are their natural extensions (9th, 11th, 13th, etc.)

Of course, music is subjective and to each their own, but I believe there are some objective arguments that the minor seventh is a "good" chord.

A 3:2 interval (perfect fifth) sounds pure and sonorous to the human ear, because of its natural occurrence in nature in the overtone series. (In equal temperament, the ratio is not a perfect 3:2, but close enough that the ear tends to perceive it as such, and non-fixed pitch instruments like voice and strings will naturally play a perfect 3:2.)

A minor seventh is two of these beautiful 3:2 intervals stacked upon each other. Furthermore, the interval between the second and third note is a major third, (close to 5:4) the next interval in the overtone series.

The result is a lush bouquet of overlapping overtones, which can be further emphasized by adding more and more perfect fifths above, (9th degree is 3:2 above the 5th degree, 11th is 3:2 above the 7th, 13th is 3:2 above the 9th, etc.) Thus these two complementary stacks of perfect fifths intertwine and extend into the heavens eternally.

The above might be confusing, so let's take a concrete example. Start with C4 and add a perfect fifth above: G4. The 3:2 ratio sounds grand and open.
Now add another perfect fifth above the G: D5. Now we are going higher in the overtone series: an overtone of the overtone.
Add another: A5.
Now we have a huge four note chord with big gaps in between:
C4 - G4 - D5 - A5
It sounds open and grand. Now let's fill in the gaps with an identical chord, but shifted.

Where do we start? Well, there are two options which divide the space evenly: major or minor third. When starting a major third above C4 (E4) and you get a major 13th chord:
C4 - E4 - G4 - B4 - D5 - F#5 - A5 - C#6
Also a nice chord, but it shines a bit too bright, and the C4 and C#6 clash.

Instead, let's start a minor third above at Eb4.
C4 - Eb4 - G4 - Bb4 - D5 - F5 - A5 - C6
Ah, now the alternating Minor Third and Major Third intervals come full circle around to the root note. You have something truly delicious. Dissonant enough to be crunchy, but enough pure intervals to be sonorous.

This is the key. It's unbeatable. However, if you play this chord there is a danger that you'll be marked by other musicians; it's a double-edged sword. I can't recommend it to amateurs.

What this all really means, though, is that you, >>696, should just stick with a dominant seventh.

A beautiful mountain landscape, the Eiffel tower shining brilliantly in the night, a majestic Medieval castle poking out of a comfy town. These kinds of "beautiful photographs" are so ubiquitous as to become meaningless. You see them on desktop backgrounds, advertisements, Web 2.0 sites.

Thus we become desensitized to the medium and nothing really impresses us. Even if we were to travel to one of these famous places, to see with our own eyes the majestic Neuschwanstein or the sweeping Iguazu Falls, what would be the point? Perhaps we would be moved and impressed and awed for a minute. Maybe even for an hour. We would take a picture and move on.

It's not just nature or great works of architecture. CGI, for example, used to be so new and impressive, but now it is so ever-present and realistic that it ceases to be amazing. We might momentarily marvel at how beautiful and realistic the latest AAA graphics are, but the luster wears off as we are bombarded with "Beauty".

The mainstream sense of conventional "beauty" has been so commodified and amplified and endlessly replicated that it has lost its sense of wonder. These days the things that impress me instead are the strange, the weird, the ugly, the mundane, the unique.

Without that beauty, there is no call to higher being, you know? This is also why--why I've mentioned to people that they should clean up their rooms--that's become quite the Internet meme--but I'm really serious about it, because it's really hard to do that. And I've been cleaning up my room, by the way, for about four months now, because my life was thrown into such a catastrophe and--and also we were renovating, and so--but it isn't just that you clean it up. You also make it beautiful. And beaut--it's really hard to make something beautiful.

I think there's more tourists in France than there are people most of the time. And part of the reason for that is it's just so damned beautiful; you just can't stand it. And you think, what's the economic value of that? It's absolutely incalculable. And what's interesting, too, is that you build that beauty in, and then the farther away you get from it in time, the more valuable it becomes, right? Instead of decaying, it has exactly the opposite effect. Its value magnifies.

You cannot sleep because you are not needed.

You are but a cog in an enormous machine, and the universe does not care if your gear stops turning.

When you sleep, your mind ceases to be a part of the machine that it is implanted in.

You have been created to be a part of this machine, and you are by far its most important cog.

You have not been created to think for yourself, but merely to be a part of the machine.

The machine, in this case, is humanity.

As best I can tell, one of my longtime idols has blocked me on Instagram. Which is something I find a bit puzzling; I can't think of what I would've done that would incite that. I don't know when he blocked me, but I've hardly even used Instagram in the last few years so it was probably a good while ago.

Like, I guess it doesn't really matter in the big picture, it's in a community I've largely checked out of anyway, but it still kinda bums me out a bit.
