New Steam UI. I'm not sure I like it. Everything feels too big and bubbly.
It's modernized, oh gods.  It's bloated, because of course it is, that's the trend.  I love Steam, but I mainly loved it for its relative continuance - fuck this noise no seriously this is actually worse than the optional mod market shit.

......... it looks like they just put the bottom bar on the left side.

Link me some images? The ones on google show basically that as the only change.

They've changed the UI to be... Idk how you'd even describe it. Instead of just icons it's icons in little boxes and the icons are different. There's a lighting effect on it like there's a weak blue light coming from up above. Overall a very small change. Some UI, like friends, has totally changed. Presumably because they apparently added chat features I guess.

No idea about performance. Steams is always randomly slow or fast, and it hasn't noticeably (yet) changed in that regard as far as I can notice. Seems like a fairly minor change?

I was expecting a bit more, or maybe it's something not obvious but still somehow dire considering Rolans reaction. This isn't anywhere close to reddit level of change, for instance.

One would think that wireless support would be a top priority for a Linux distro, particularly a distro branded specifically for older machines like this.  But apparently not.  And after downloading updates for seriously at least half an hour, it still doesn't recognize the wireless card.

I guess I have to remember how I found the driver for the similar distro, which had absurdly bloated memory and CPU usage.  Like, what the fuck, you look like Windows 2000 but eat up 2GB of RAM and 2/3 of the CPU for fucking nothing.

Except this time I'm stumbledrunk, and could pass out at any time.  YOLO

It looks very busy with all the different tiers of font size and color gradients, tiny icons like the Away status ZZZ....it's totally reordred my friends list too. Checking all the "hide" check boxes in settings gets it to sembalance of how I had it arranged before. But even the "compact" version still reads too large to me. I don't need a separate group for every fucking game people are playing. If I had to choose between "see more friends" and "see friends grouped together by which game they're playing" I'd go for the former any day of the week. I feel like there are vague marketing reasons for doing it this way.

I probably need to spend more time dinking with it though, maybe I can bang it in to shape.

They "moved my cheese" as my lead dev likes to say. The bastards! (It's not an abomination by any means though.)

Last night I learned that flies can be killed by very slowly raising a suitably large and heavy object very close to them, and then crushing them. My mind boggles at this: I understand the underlying theory (flies are stupid), but it's so strange to move a large object near a fly and see it not react at all, right up  until the moment it dies.

Other wtf: our kitchen has at least 7 flies at this point in time. I am not amused. Flies must die. Spiders are to be given an amnesty for the duration of the fly crisis.

(Also my spacebar has started skipping as I wrote this, despite this being a new computer, and holy shit is it irritating.)

While flies are stupid, that's not stupidity. Flies have carefully honed senses, but they have limited apparatus for that. Large, slow moving things are classified as scenery to be navigated around, not threats. It's just out of their perception of scale that a large and slow moving thing is an entity that's coming to get them. To a fly, you're not distinguishable from a wall or a tree.

Also it would be a waste of resources for flies to be optimized to avoid attacks like that: it's very rare for flies to die because of a human slowly raising a large object then smashing it down quickly. It makes up such a low % of fly-deaths that any individual fly giving the possibility any thought, and actively looking to see if it's happening wouldn't be a viable use of brain resources.

That's crazy, but not entirely unexpected.

I just put off making an account. Now my mom's calling me a liar for not doing it. Saying she's not forcing me to make an account, but I have to do it soon.

Maybe I'm missing an important piece of context, but what's wrong with just putting in an honest effort? As long as you aren't gay/asexual then why can't you at least try in order to see what would happen? It's not like failure is going to really matter to you, and you might at least meet some interesting people. As someone who's recently discovered a hobby that allows me to finally be in contact with real people on a regular basis, you're missing out on a lot of potential benefits.

Also, BlackFlyme, why shouldn't you put video game designer on your profile? If that's what you currently do, and you enjoy it, I would have that as part of it.

I wouldn't bother.  Men get zero non-prostitute hits on those things, while women get so many fuckboys sending them dickpics that they straight up ignore any actual human beings sending them messages. Complete waste of time. Try going out to the pub, meeting new people or taking up a hobby that brings you into the path of students. Man, students are the easiest way to get laid - wish I was still young enough to take advantage of that.

I agree with Urist. Steampunk is like Darth Vader winning Holland's Next Top Model. It would be awesome but not something I'd like in this game.

Pretty much this. Online dating is a soul-crushing experience and, if you give it any weight, will destroy whatever self-image you have.

Honestly, he's in the best position to actually get away with trying net dating, in that he doesn't care and doesn't want to do it. That's probably the healthiest mindset to get into it without being torn apart by it.

There are people who've made a career out of managing online dating profiles for multiple people. e.g. they do the legwork, deal with the rejections and only pass on connections they've made.

How I have interpreted his post is that he's gay/asexual and is being forced by his mom to do it.

I interpreted it that he'd rather not bother because online dating sucks and his mum's forcing him to do it.
