@puellavulnerata Do you know someone who's willing to be the model for the front page :D?

S1: Create a detailed bug report on a open source project.
S2: A maintainer reads the last sentence, gives a curt reply, closes the bug without asking if issue was resolved.
S3: Point out that the main problem in bug report was ignored.
S4: A maintainer asks you to drop the problem into a black hole (forums, IRC, etc.).
S5: Drop problem into black hole. Feign surprise when nothing comes out.
S6: Switch to an alternative OSS project, if one exists. Go to S1.

This mostly only happens on large open source projects. Bugs can go unfixed for years because of it.

@cypnk Yay 286 :D... but it's already sold :(

@scanlime Good view of his left mitten paw :3!


I'm ambivalent as to whether the Ch 9. "CW: life" scene should've been kept in. But it did the job of leaving me enraged.

@holocronweaver If it helps, I can offer some spoiler-free content warnings:

Ch 1-6: No issues.

Ch 7 is generally intense, starting with a scene at sunset with your mentor talking to you.

Ch 8: No issues.

Ch 9: Mostly intense. But also I have a save file with the comment: "CW: life".

This CW starts with the line "I'll show you the real me", when the protagonist is talking to his lover on a hill overlooking the ruins of town at night.

Ch 10: Like Ch 9, w/o "CW: life"

@holocronweaver WRT "It is deferred to a codex/the Muv-Luv wikia what happens after Alternative Ends.":
* Unlimited has supplemental VNs and materials which elaborate on what happens when the world goes to hell.
* What happens after Alternative ends is currently kinda "uncharted territory." It is elaborated on in bits and pieces from the codex and the Muv-Luv wikia, but not supplemental VNs... yet!

@holocronweaver So I finished Muv-Luv Alternative today.

Brief spoiler-free synposis:
* It is a VERY intense VN that rips all that you hold dear from you.
* The ending did not have the closure *I* personally seeked. It is deferred to a codex/the Muv-Luv wikia what happens after Alternative Ends.
* I understand why the ending was done that way.
* Alternative earned it's #1 position on VNDB, IMHO.
* It is worth playing all of Extra, Unlimited, and Alternative.

@lambadalambda @davidsgallant IME, arguments against CWs and safe spaces almost always distill down to: "nobody would give *me personally* the same accommodations for my personal problems/discomforts, so why should I do the same for others"?

@aparrish (That event being "building a toy CPU in Verilog for a class". That was the first time I really felt like "I could do anything with computers".)

@aparrish Hmm, I should do a reflection on "how did I get to this point?" It's a pity I only remember bits and pieces of what I've learned before a specific "catalyst" event.

@tdfischer Is this your instance (i.e. you caved and made your own)?

Why are American taxes so f***ed up?

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Mastodon, is in fact, OStatus/Mastodon, or as I've recently taken to calling it, OStatus plus Mastodon. Mastodon is not a network unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning OStatus system made useful by the pubsubhubub, salmon and ActivityVerb components comprising a full OStatus servicer as defined by OStatus.

Okay, my new Mastodon instance is live! Since @Mus made oulipo.social where you can't post the letter 'e', I am proud to announce:


A Mastodon instance where you can only say the letter "e". Follow me there! I'm @e

@lambadalambda Oh hey, I'm playing this VN right now :D. It's just as fucked up as everyone says it is :D!!
