    • I'm through all Ranma ½ OVAs, including the one from 2008. The 2008 one is very strange animation-wise. Due to the more "modern" art style and smoother animation it looks plainly wrong. Also the animation timing and framing is stylistically worse in my opinion. The only content I'm missing are the two films and I've just ordered them. Soon I'll be free from the compulsive urge to consume everything from that darn series.

        • Binged through 161 episodes of Ranma ½. Only the 12 OVA are left. My head is all mushy. So far I can only say that there are a lot of episodes that are faithful to the manga, however there are also plenty stories with hacked-up plots spread over multiple episodes sprinkled over multiple seasons. Of course there are also not an insignificant number of original stories. These leaned more to the bad side, but a few were quite good. Over all I prefer the manga. The manga was tighter in the presentation and the jokes hit better because of that.

            • @scribus The musician for Swole Foods is a furry (more or less my consultant at that point, heh) and he explained that whole situation to me, and I feel like THAT’S different because THAT’S inherently pornographic, whereas Big Mouth, much as I despise the show, is nonetheless clearly using sexual imagery as a comedic device. The same can be said about movies like Ridgemont

              • @scribus Psh, really ? I do not believe for one second that any proverbial key to any castle is to be found around here now. Probably never even was to the first place. I am a staunch believer that there are no people actively hating one another, just people who have a misunderstanding of somekind. What if I were to declare the D word to be just as offensive as the N word ? You would be confused as to what I even mean since you obviously never heard of it. Even though, I think it should be fairly obvious, look at my name FGS. But, you never asked. You only assumed. Which is why we are having a breakdown of comminucation in a way.

                Asking why is a bad thing tho [ makes universal sign language symbol for coocoo ]

                Have fun condoning calling out for the death of TERFS and share apple recipes on Tories. Because democracy is only good when it serves your own echo chamber, right ? I'd quote Matthew 7:5 at you but you would probably just use that to call me a Conservative or something.

              • @drinkingpony Beautiful, hypocritical assumption. I'm not calling for death to TERFS or Torries. And you have been far too antagonistic to be "just askin'." And feel free to quote scripture, I use it myself. It's a better reference than Dewey! http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875386

              • @scribus "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani ?"

                Oh I tell you why. While not calling for the death of groups you do not agree with directly you certainly do not seem to be too keen on calling it out either.

                In your other post you talk about those you deem worthy of execution. Worthy ? ... WORTHY ! Face it. You became just as bad as the people you deem worthy of disrespect or worse. May that mark upon your skin be forever be a reminder of the person you became you swore you did not want to be.

                Everyone who thinks I am an asshole should realize something. Do it ! I will happily martyr myself in your memories and off of this platform. The next time something bad happens or the 'wrong' person gets elected I want you all to blame me. Scribus can quote Romans 2:1 and you can all rest assured that everyone is safe as you did the right thing by closing yourself off from answering questions and using shaming tactics to establish dominance and promote group-think.

              • OK... I'm hit by reality. In order to fully utilize the AMD Ryzen 9 3950x I need to buy a motherboard that is well in the range of 400€+ because the motherboard power regulation often heat up so much that the CPU throttles. I take down a notch in my plans and get less ambitious in the CPU department. I rather want to upgrade more often than blasting all my earnings for the best. A 3900x will be sufficient enough! HAHAHA.

Found some wicked Viking folk metal I'd somehow managed to forget about, even while we recorded a Viking episode! https://youtu.be/qQg5y5Qsdbw (REALLY funny part is, I could PROBABLY find myself mentioning them here in the past...)

                                            Which is a HUGE problem if you have, for instance, VirtualBox installed since it creates a virtual adapter.

Essentially I cannot recycle most of my components. HDDs, DVD drive only. My last configuration was an AMD 3700x, 64GB DDR4-3200, 1TB m.2 SSD, NVidia 2800 super, mainboard, 800W power supply, case. I need a new case because my current has only usb2 ports at the front and I'd like to have something better. Other than that it has some serious scratches from over 14 years of use as well as an unsightly opening on the side panel when these CPU "tubes" were in fashion for directly venting the hot CPU air out. This was never used because my cooler was not shaped in the way to benefit from that.

                                              • @adiwan Sounds about right, I just build a 3600 Ryzen 5 powered PC for my dad, Though it has only 16 GB of RAM and a GT 710 instead of 64 GB and a RTX 2080 Super.

                                                No DVD drive though, who needs that in 2020 ? And if you do. Go USB the thing.

                                                > I need a new case

                                                Fractal design define R5 or S. Probably not the S if you want to mount multiple HDD's and a DVD drive up front.

                                                Also I kinda remember Gamers Nexus saying "It is the card noone actually cares about" ( I had it running in the background while doing something else ) http://rainbowdash.net/url/875373 ... So beware on that RTX 2080 Super I guess.

DVD is essential for me and my retro game collection. A portable USB DVD drive could be nice but I have alreay an internal drive. It's also a good cup holder.
