Today was a bad day. I looked at the long road ahead to realize my true self and all the obstacles in my way (lack of money, close minded family members, and just the how long things take) and felt depressed. I also felt gender dysphoria all day badly. I called out of work and 'hid' in my room all day (still 'hiding').

I know nobody here an do much but offer sympathy, encouragement, and Internet hugs..but I just need someplace to talk about.

Selene: Talking about a thing is good, because it prevents internalizing a thing, which is caustic to the Self.

That's what we're here for.

*offers hugs*


Selene, just as you offered me an internet shoulder to cry on, I'll offer you one as well. The previous owner was a Skyrim assassin. I'm sure she won't be needing it anymore, as the rest of her is a pile of ash. :)


Yeah...it does help talking about it. *hugs*

I think part of it is just I am older...so I do not think I have much time yet. All that time wasted. I really wish I could go back...sigh.


So do I, Selene, so do I. Going back to twenty years old would have been right for me.


I could go into an uplifting and inspiring Gandalf quote, but really, uplifting quotes only do so much good sometimes and linear time is a big old meanie. Sorry things are tough, Selene. We're here.

If you made the best decision you could with the information you had at the time, then you made the right decision back then.

Being kind starts with being kind to your younger self.

Participating in the GLSEN day of silence at my school.

In other news, people are extremely confused as to why I'm not randomly bursting into song in the hallway or in class.

Me too!

Of course, it wasn't very well organized and I didn't know that it was even happening until 4th period, but it was still fun. :)


Thanks for the kinds words they do help.

What is GLSEN?


Selene, while one of my previous posts was an attempt at humor, I was entirely serious about giving you a shoulder. As always, my inbox is always open.

Whoops, I thought I posted but I guess it didn't go through (The site must hunger for hugs I guess XD)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend ^w^

My Mom just gave me a women's blouse ...probably not the style I would go for...but it was a very nice gesture. :)

I kinda love it when the power goes out...as long as I have light to read by. But growing up my family would turn off all the lights, TVs, etc...light a couple of candles and tell stories and such. We only did it a handful of times...but it was fun.


Power outages are my favorite, especially because they're often accompanied by lightning and thunder, which is my other favorite. (Either lightning and thunder or not paying the power bill. Had a fair few of the latter as a kid.)

Silver Crusade

That's awesome Selene ^w^

And apparently it was a tornado that didn't touch down. *shrugs*

Still raining though.


That the tornado didn't touch down is very good news, Rysky. Several counties North of Pittsburgh have terrain that is flat enough for tornadoes to be a very serious emergency. If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to keep thoughts for your area's continued safety foremost in my mind.


My pfs game did not go off yesterday :(

Those are the hard days...

Hope everyone is having a safe evening out there, when they have their evening!

*vents part of the the 75C idle temps from his gpu into the channel to help warm it*

Going to look at cleaning it tonight with solution, already have the drivers up to date, card is five years old, though, so it might just be wearing out...

Be safe and careful out there, kids!

It could be dust. If the GPU has a fan, take a vacuum cleaner to it. Dust settling on the heat sink reduces its efficiency. Also, check for loose components on the card.

Use that vacuum cleaner very gently (as in, keep it at distance, minimum strength). Try to prevent the fans from turning during the process (that could create small electric surges, sometimes enough to kill the GPU). If you have a handheld vacuum cleaner, use that instead.

Yeah, what Feytharn said. :)


And now, for a bit of nostalgia, Windows 1.01

You could also use a spray can of compressed air. And don't forget to check for loose components. The parts, especially the elecrolytic capacitors shouldn't wiggle. I lost a system board due to a single loose capacitor.

I didn't work with Windows until 3.1
Does anybody remember the Atari ST?
Or even 'GEOS' for the Commodore 64?

I've been using compressed air on it, either tonight or tomorrow morning comes the 'swab with isopropyl alcohol' step...

I had a commodore colt growing up. The screen would roll. I made it to level 98 on Tetris with the screen rolling before dad messed with it and cost me the game.

...had a C64 then 'inherited' a C64c from my grandmother, but aside from a bit of games on it, didn't do much with it, sadly. And then they suffered basement rot and that was that.

I remember GEOS (Graphical Environment Operating System). I had both a C64 and a C128 while stationed in Germany.
