I'm starting to write some short stories.

I have a site at: kitsunealicia.wordpress.com/

Please check it out if you're interested.

Currently, the only story I've posted is a Naruto universe story starring my OC, .

But more will come eventually. ☺

...Just to tl;dr it, I prefer zip archives because of how Windows treats executable files. Large executables result in a lack of response, which messes with my desire to see what's going on.

Tbh, I use the -v (--verbose) option in command-line stuff a lot for the same reason.

Meanwhile, unpacking an archive *does* have progress indicators, so even though it's an extra step I have to take manually, I'm not sitting there waiting while Windows silently checks an 800MB executable.

I can always use an anti-malware scanner like Malwarebytes if I wanted to detect potential problems.

So that's why I avoid single .exe installs. What about you?

And there's a reason for that, tbh. Windows does a little check on .exe files for malicious stuff each time you run them.

This check happens in the background & it's usually fast enough to not notice it, so there's no progress indicator. But on large files, it takes longer, so it looks like Windows isn't doing anything.

I have a question for all y'all that use Windows:

What kind of install file do you prefer? Like, do you prefer a single .exe file? Or a .zip archive containing the install files & a smaller setup.exe? Or do you prefer so-called portable versions that you just unzip & run?

Personally, I prefer a portable version, but if an app doesn't have that, I generally go with zip archives.

Nationalism is a form of private ownership. And like all forms of private ownership, it inevitably leads to injustice & inequality.

I'm like Sinon from Sword Art Online, except I have more of a personality.

I guarantee I can do long-distance sniping with both sniper rifles & bows in games like she can, plus I'm funnier.

Fascism is a one-trick pony, but they continually paint over that pony and convince people to look at the new paint instead of the pony underneath.

Remember: profits = hoarding

When someone says they're rich, it should elicit the same response as if they said they were hoarding a bunch of sheets of paper.

Side note: If Disney ever made this into an actual TV series, there's one line in this chapter that'd make for an especially interesting tie-in given a certain subsidiary of theirs...

I'll leave you to figure it out. 😉

Been a busy couple weeks, but I finally got the time & energy to finish up chapter 3 of my OUAT fanfic, . It's available on my site here: kitsunealicia.wordpress.com/st

If you still haven't read the previous chapters, you can find 'em here: kitsunealicia.wordpress.com/st

The one turn I remember had the cards as follows: Buster, Arts (Hero 1), Arts (Hero 2), Quick, Arts (Hero 3)

I also remember you could choose which effects to activate when you chose them each turn, so you didn't need to worry about drawing a specific Arts card. Any one of them from that hero would work.

The effects showed in green up above the cards once you hit the Attack button. I think you could also view them on the individual heroes beforehand like you do with buffs/debuffs by long-pressing the hero portrait.

(It was REALLY bright green. Like 00FF00 green.)
