[Blogging] Textboards and possibility [Boring] [Feelings] (1)

1 Name: 408 - Name Request Timeout : 2024-04-19 14:12 ID:5HWAmSS7

Whenever I look through textboards - and sometimes when I look through small imageboards - I get a strange feeling of possibility. Like I'm browsing the internet for the first time again and I don't know what I could find, like everyone else is out there living fascinating lives that you can only catch a glimpse of through the screen. Like this format of discussion with other people over the internet is going to get really big one day, and I'm here on the ground floor. Like it's 20 years ago and I'm still young, technology still excites me, and I can do anything if I try hard enough.

And I know it's not true, I know the state of the wider web and the wider world. I know that most of your lives wouldn't really interest me if you were to share them on a social media site, or even on 4chan. But on a textboard everything somehow becomes special and mysterious again. The discussions and the in-jokes often make no sense to me, but they feel like they've got some special hidden meaning, some great secret that I could uncover - even when I can rationally deduce that a lot of them are just people being silly, an in-joke I don't get, no deeper than that.
Despite the fact most textboards move slowly, I always get a feeling like I've got to move fast to avoid missing out - unlike the rest of the web where it doesn't matter if I blink-and-miss-it because it's so uninteresting anyway. It's odd: I can discount nostalgia and I can discount textboards being new to me, but I can't get any closer to figuring out why they make me feel this way.
Do you have any ideas what it could be? Do textboards arouse any special emotion in you?

Gikopoi thread! (33)

1 Name: 409 - Name Conflict : 2022-07-26 12:54 ID:AFEl7b+A

Gikopoi is a fun 2ch-themed Flash game -- it's similar to IRC or a Habbo Hotel without AIDS. We got:

  • loli streams
  • alcoholism
  • people from all over the globe
  • chicks with dicks
  • old time iichan/saovq lurkers

What do you think of this game?

Agreed. Every website just looks the same now, flat and boring as hell. And it's sadly not just the internet, just look at the history of the Google Chrome icon, every icon was worse than it's predecessor, getting flatter and flatter until it became something I could make in MS paint in like 2 minutes.

38 Name: 401 - Unauthorized Name : 2024-02-15 03:13 ID:xYEokPYN

These days I mostly just listen to the radio via SDR and a couple big antennas outside my house. I can hear shortwave stuff from other continents, local FM or AM stations or long and medium wave stations from hundreds to thousands of kilometers away. There's always something to hear and it's interesting since I don't really know what's on or coming up.

If I'm gaming or something and don't want the static that comes in, I just play game music or I will pick something from http:// Lots of neat stuff there with better quality. While playing an MMO earlier I had on a good station from Taiwan.

im new to crypto and i recently came across stuff like btc wallets and faucets. i want to know how i can get a btc wallet and how can i use faucets. any other useful info is also appreciated and pls do let me know

2 Name: 408 - Name Request Timeout : 2024-02-19 21:01 ID:gLfWOLkO

You're way too late for all of that shit. The only way you're going to get bitcoin now is if you invest in it and play it as a stock market.

3 Name: 410 - Name Gone : 2024-02-20 03:56 ID:o3xqJeP5

What >>2 said. What is your goal with it? There are really only 2 uses with crypto currency. The first is to buy drugs with it. The second is to utilize it as an investment tool, albeit a very unreliable one.

Bitcoin and Ethereum are the only two worth bothering with. You want to acquire some, hold it and sell when you've made a nice return on it. But don't hold so long that it crashes and you become a bag holder. Stay away from the shitcoins. They are ALL scams and you will lose money on them. Get a wallet (CoinBase, and similar...use a popular one, so you don't get scammed) and then buy bitcoins and hold on for dear life. Do not buy them from a source that doesn't actually let you take ownership of the coins. What I mean by this is that there are a lot of investment tools where you can buy something like Bitcoin but you don't actually take ownership of the coins in they sit in your broker account and make gains or losses, but you can't actually use them beyond that.

If you just want drugs, same thing. Acquire wallet, download Tor and then find what you want.

Don't go "all in" on crypto though. It's not a very stable investment tool, so you only want to have it be a small part of your overall portfolio. Balance it out among other things like stocks, mutual funds, exchange traded funds, bonds, gold, silver, real estate and so on. If you don't know anything about investing then learn more before you try anything. See if your bank has any good accounts you can open for a newbie. Stick to ETFs, rather than trying to pick and choose individual stocks because you will just burn your money otherwise. Or if you really want stocks, then stick to "blue chip" stocks at chip means the stocks of the largest companies that exist since you can usually expect them to remain good. Think companies like Google/Alphabet, Lockheed Martin, 3M, Nvidia, Coca-Cola and so on. Again, diversify if you decide to choose individual stocks. You don't want to have 95% of your portfolio be in tech or banking because if those crash, you're fucked. Balance things.

Also, do NOT fucking fall down the rabbit hole of internet investment communities. Stay away from places like Stocktwits, Twitter, Reddit and similar. You will lose everything if you take the advice of the sort of retards you find online. Instead, just read the news each day, stay on top of what's going on in the world and make your judgments on that. By this I mean, watch for events. Is there bad weather somewhere? Then maybe the farming sector might struggle. Is there a war going on? See what economic sectors are impacted. What are current geopolitical issues that may cause things like trade to get disrupted? This is the stuff you want to pay attention to, not some retarded pumper on Reddit trying to shill a penny stock for a "short squeeze" or whatever.

5 Name: 415 - Unsupported Name Type : 2024-02-20 20:55 ID:qAx1ENgi

As a more advanced, experienced, and sophisticated crypto investor I say take a second mortgage on your house and go all in on dickbutt69inu.

For BTC you can't go wrong with Electrum. It's a great wallet.
Faucets are dead, we're almost two decades ahead of that now.

Never give your seed phrase to anyone. No websites. Nothing.
Keep a clean computer for crypto if you're dealing with large amounts of money. Ideally this computer is never connected to the internet, ever. You'll want to transfer a signature and publish it from another computer if you care a lot about avoiding any virus risks because there's a lot of them out there. Even tons of fake electrum sites to give you a backdoored wallet. Keep encrypted backups in multiple locations. You do not want to lose access to your money due to hardware failure or home fire.

Assume that everything you do is being tracked somewhere forever similar to any credit card spending. The data is out there, if you become a person of interest (drug dealer, blackmailer, ransomware) they will look at it.
Don't do crime, especially don't do crime if you don't know what you are doing.

27 Name: 403 - Name Forbidden : 2023-03-17 15:18 ID:UYbXTOX0

I vaguely remember around 2009-2010 or so, YouTube wanted to institute a no swearing policy on all uploaded videos, needless to say, this didn't go over well, and they ended up dialing that back after so many complained about it. Yeah, it started going bad not too long after Google bought them.

I had my reservations about how the (then-new) trends and developments were where the web as a whole was "centralizing" and most traffic was feeding into just a few giant sites. Most people didn't care since things became a lot more convenient from the much more fragmented days of the 90s when you needed three different media players installed in order to view any videos and audio files you might have come across. I wish things would become fragmented like that again, although I don't miss all the extra software and plugins that were needed.

I wish it weren't so saturated with endless content. it's like when you walk into a restaurant with three tvs blaring. you walk outside and there's flashing advertisements and music in the town square. you buy a loaf of bread and it's filled with sugar. the grocery stores have rotten produce but plenty of candy.

I think after all these years, I've come to realize that I actually am very addicted to the Internet. To endless stimulus. I knew better, but I succumbed to it anyways. And so did everyone else.

I can't take it anymore. There's just too much stuff hitting you all at once whenever you use a large enough site. Its frying my brain.

Stop using them less and less, then. If you go out of your way to engage, then you're going to see it. I understand it's hard not to - it's an impulse we've wired into our brains - but you can slowly taper away.

If possible, spend more and more time away from the computer. There is so much in the world for you to do that you could almost never even need one. Just learn to use it less, do more in real life that will keep you occupied so you don't open up Twitter or 4chan just because you're bored and eventually you just stop giving a shit for the most part.
