I finally made an nhentai account. I should probably use g.e-hentai instead but the last time I did there wasn't always seeders for the things I wanted to download so I just had to save the images manually. It's too early for me to say whether or not it's better overall, and I likely won't prefer it over g.e-hentai but the two doujins I torrented were at least very quick unlike g.e-hentai where I can sometimes be lucky to make any progress at all through torrenting. I'm not happy to admit that pressure was the motivation behind this decision since this country is so censor-happy and I don't want a repeat of the pornhub incident so I want to stock up on the doujins I like just in case something bad happens. I'll likely be chipping away at the long list of bookmarked doujins I have by torrenting them all but perhaps with a slight bit of urgency by doing so daily. Though if there is one thing that I would definitly like nhentai to have it's a blacklist.

I've always used "hitomi.la". It's pretty lightweight and seems to have all the needed features. The booru counterpart "nozomi.la" is great too.

nHentai parasitizes off of exhentai. When something is uploaded to exhentai, that's where nhentai gets its copy from(I've seen this in real time). That means exhentai gets stuff faster. Not only that, but exhentai has artist cgs(basically a colored, computer doujin) and pixiv collections(including fanbox stuff) while nhentai doesn't.

>>37659
Hitomi also parasitizes off of exhentai. It at least has artists cgs, but the search function is extremely slow for some reason and english translations of certain things have mysteriously disappeared off of their website for stuff like Maron Maron cgs.

Both have a better built in image viewer than exhenai's obsolete, cumbersome one, but to call them "better" than exhentai ignores the massive value its community has in actually uploading to the internet and commissioning translations.

>parasitizes
Yeah I assumed that was implicitly well-known. Although calling them "parasites" seems a bit derogatory. "Mirroring" would work just as well, and while uploaders are important I don't see any harm being done by mirrors that make the uploaded content more widely available. After all the end-goal of the uploader is to share something with the web.
>> No. 37667 [Edit]

I don't see the harm in it either, but asking which one is "better" assumes they're even comparable to begin with.

A few days ago when I was driving to work I saw a billboard celebrating the Lunar New Year and a truck that said "China Post". It wasn't the first billboard advertising it and when I came back home steam had a Lunar New Year sale. I don't think I remember a Chinese holiday having been celebrated before but I hope, and strongly doubt, that normalfags are seeing it and asking questions.

One could see it as a china take over, but another might think rat = plague, where as bull/cow = bull market (a good thing).

...but yeah no, china's culture has been infiltrating ours for a while now. In mainstream media (film/tv) it's blatant how we've been pandering to them and including them in everything.

Different anon. There used to be a large Chinese supermarket near me that closed. I know somebody who's a teacher and they've noticed that as the indian student body grows, the east asian body shrinks. I think that's how things go.

Well we only accept Chinese as students for money and if Indians are willing to pay then no need for Chinese. And we have all of the talk going around of Chinese infiltration of the education system so even more incentive not to have them.

The only reason I can think of is that maybe they fell for the "these times" meme and feel the urgency that motivates them to keep up with the news. Of course, they're always misinformed and what they think boils down to replacing jews and chinks with trump supporters and incels for scapegoating.

I have noticed the imageboard crowd is moving to textboards.
>> No. 37706 [Edit]
>>37705
What is the point of a text board? It's just an imageboard with less features.
>> No. 37707 [Edit]
>>37706
It forces people to make slightly less shitty posts and prevents spam a bit. They can't use the power of images to communicate emotions responsibly, so they either over rely on or abuse it and make awful posts. On a textboards that's not an option. They can still make awful posts, but there's less incentive to.

It self-selects the audience to people willing to read for one. Text-boards also have the benefit of being easier and safer to run (no CP spam at 3am and a call to the FBI right after).
Another benefit is that they can be fully accessed with text browsers like lynx or w3m, which makes it trivial to read at work for the more techy crowd (managers don't read terminal text as a general rule).
The vibe is just different. People tend to put more effort into what they write because there's no shortcut available. To try to be funny on an imageboard, you can post a meme (ancient or new), to be funny on a textboard you actually have to write funny text.
>> No. 37709 [Edit]
>>37708
I don't the like the idea of people putting in more effort because they're forced to through absent features. The "vibe" being better doesn't make up for not having pictures. Techy anons tend to be snobbish too in my experience.

Yes, and pigs are glad not to have humans rolling around in the muck with them too. If text boards are so superior, why would people who like them ever bother with imageboards? They can just stay in their pen and circle jerk about bloat and text editors or whatever.

Where are these supposed textboards with high quality content? Tinychan/FSF has low quality conten; schemebbs is meh (/prog/ is ok I guess but I don't care much for lisp in particular; I get enough of that on the orange bar site); savoq and spin-offs are as terrible as you'd expect for actual discussion. In fact the only textboards with occasional good posts I've managed to find are 4-ch and letterbox, but even the latter has lost some luster lately.

Overall unless I'm missing something textboards in the western sphere are no better than imageboards quality of content-wise. I suppose you could say that the worst textboards are better than the worst imageboards, but considering that all you've really done is swap images for ascii art that's not saying much.

I do agree that in general allowing too many images can derail threads though. It's for this reason that I hate all the lynxchan clones since the ability to attach multiple images per post means that every thread becomes more of an image dump.

I hope you're doing okay.
I have deep anxiety about getting a vaccine, specifically the long term effects, if I die I want a brain hemmorage.
>> No. 37730 [Edit]
>>37729
It annoys me that people always dismiss vaccine skeptics as some sort of "anti-science" hillbillies, as if "science" was some sort of religious of absolute truth. I personally don't question the efficacies and benefits of vaccines, but modern vaccines aren't just the weakened/inactivated viruses that they originally were. You have to worry about cross interactions with the body's own proteins (many of which we probably don't even fully understand yet), and there's a fine line between stimulating the immune response and overstimulating it.

Similarly I don't know why people make fun of those who believe harmful effects of cell phone radiation/wifi/5G. Yes it's non-ionizing, but that alone doesn't guarantee safety; for instance, hypothetically if the body/brain made use of weak low-frequency signals for signaling/etc. then it's possible that an externally imposed EM field could either interfere or resonate with it. It hasn't even been a generation since the widespread prevalence of these things.

To avoid getting into /tat/ territory, all i'll say is "believe in science!" is the new "Because God said so!"

one other side effect that seemed to happen a week later was neck pain right below my jaw (inflamed lymph nodes possibly?) which went away in a day.

The text/imageboard split is real: disallowing something, like imageposting, can be a feature. In more recent times, people pushing gemini/gopher also claim that and I see it as a parallel to early 2000s "textboard" purism. Complete with gopher being old and unintentionally primitive.
The phpBB vs. forced anonymous "shiichans" also differ in more than a registration. Not only did phpBB instances encouraged registration, but also early from the start building a personality: various badges & stars, titles ("this person is a supreme expert / veteran member / Orc captain") etc. - this goes far beyond "tripfagging".
While it is true that all these software is of one general type, that doesn't completely refute the "medium is the message" type of theory.

Textboards pop up every day, there seems to be a bit of a buzz about them with the small userbase left for these sort of sites, there are things like txtchan and overtext that attempt to catalog them. They are popping up on different protocols too. Tinychan and boards of that ilk are considered talkboards and not textboards.
>In fact the only textboards with occasional good posts I've managed to find are 4-ch and letterbox, but even the latter has lost some luster lately.
letterbox, unfortunately, had most of its userbase scared off by a spammer, that's probably why the userbase has gotten worse.

took the second dose of the vaccine , side effect: felt like i had the flu with a low grade fever, went away the next day though arm soreness persisted for a day longer.
>> No. 37856 [Edit]
>>37854
Apparently that's a common issue (some say Moderna vaccine is more likely to elicit pain after second shot). Not even close to a medical researcher but in general second shots are known to trigger stronger immune responses (spiking serum antibody levels)), and I'm guessing that's what is eliciting the adverse reaction. The same would probably happen if a previously infected person took the vaccine.
>> No. 37858 [Edit]
>>37854
I have a heart condition and qualified to get the vaccine early but was too much of an anxious wreck to actually go there. I don't know if I regret it or not. I mean I already get the flu shot every year because of said heart condition. When my doctor finds out I didn't get this thing he's going to have a field day lecturing me like I'm fucking 6.

My monitor has reached the point where it is burning images into the middle of the screen, not permanently yet but still. It annoys me even more as this was not a cheap monitor and I have already had issues with them. It's a 1440p gaming monitor that I got about 3 years ago, I actually got a different model 1440p fist but the corners had such white light that I sent it back for a refund, even this one is not ideal in that regard but better. I also don't like the anti-reflective coating on modern monitors, it makes images grainy. Oh yeah, two pixels are dead on it too, one died early on and the other maybe after a year.
>> No. 37928 [Edit]
>>37927
I only ever had the cheapest, small LG and Acer ones and they all lasted without issues way longer than that. That sucks. Do you have money to replace it? That always seem to be the most important thing at the end of the day.
>> No. 37929 [Edit]
>>37928
Before this one I used to have one made in 2007 that was not even 1080p but the screen was glass and it never had any major faults.

It seems that monitor costs have gone down quite a bit now with monitors of the same spec being half the price(well slightly better even, mine was 144hz these are 165hz) and there are non-gaming 1440ps in the market too(there wasn't before really) so getting a new monitor won't be an issue I'll just have to hope it lasts longer than this one.

Just found out that you can buy self-heating sex robots with Alexa-style AI now, for a price that I could afford if I wanted to:

It can only move its head though. My point still stands that I won't get a sex robot until they're mobile and intelligent enough to clean themselves.

Two of my Siblings got tattoos on the weekend. I expected better from them, I always expect more from my family and then they let me down and yet I still somehow never see them for what they are. I guess this at least should stop now that they have permanent reminders of what they are attached to them.
