You should try emulating old vidya. I feel it brings a certain magic modern vidya doesn't have.


well it's an option, but i've been playing old pc vidya most of the time nowadays anyway, just out of principle because there aren't many good games past 2012, minus like yakuza and shid


I think it might have to do with markdown formatting or something.

they said that it was made to increase post quality by making formatting easier, which is just a reflection to not see the real lack of abstract thinking in redditfags


I stumbled upon this almost 2 decade old bread on the gentoo forums. It's about the, at the time, recently released Mozilla Phoenix browser. I wonder if that project ever went anywhere.

Does anyone remember the 2010-ish bacon and moustache fad? Funny how that completely died out, I haven't seen or thought about it in years lol. Looking back on it I find it forced and quirky.


I think that was kind of a hipster thing, right? It might still be going strong with them, though. I was at this restaurant where I ordered chicken and waffles, and they put bacon on it. Seemed out of place, but it was pretty good.


I don't remember the hipster connection, although it wouldn't surprise me if they took to it later on. I just remember bacon and moustaches being "epic".


It was a plebbit, 9gag and meme app thing. mostly populated by hipsters, and plebbit has been known to be obsessed with bacon, like the "bacon narwals at midnight" thing that started in 2009. God i remember seeing that stuff in stores, then they started having rage comic and le internets related stuff in the local mall.


I never saw internet leakage IRL where I live but seeing that must've been fucking depressing.

I like the look of old Youtube better than the modern look.


The modern YouTube site layout feels like they are trying to look similar to the mobile app.



Old internet was already dying by that point.


It was on its way to the grave. Not quite dead yet.


The internet died in 1993 with the eternal september, but more generally earnest diffusion of knowledge died back in 48 BC with the burning of the library of alexandria

The Library of Alexandria never burned down, it slowly deteriorated over a few centuries. Caesar did set fire to it on accident in 48 BC but only burned a portion of the library.


You're right, but I think 48 BC can be picked as a symbolic date of the complete loss of importance of the library. Afterwards it was barely mentioned even by historians. With it died the dream of common knowledge, of a capital of science where all the wise from over the world could come to contribute to the advancement of humankind.
...What can the internet offer to compare? lolcats?


It depends on how you use the internet. It can be used for lolcats. It can also be used to seek and accumulate information. Most people just use it for pr0n and social media, and corporations want to control it. I think both situations are a shame.

cats are truly the only good thing left


Humanity has made its choice with the first torch thrown to set fire to the ships near the library


Burning the library was never the intention.



Remember when every Youtube video had this song in the background?



This is an actual re-upload of the original Jeff the killer story, made by the actual original creator before it was a creepy/copypasta.
Don't believe me? Look it up. Also apparantly it got removed because of a copyright strike because of licenced music.

Fucking hell. RIP. He was a part of internets history. Did you read his wife's post in the bread?
>An hour later I was contacted by my attorney who informed me that Rich had shot himself earlier in the morning.
She also mentions that he was abusive towards her. From the tone of her post I can believe it, she does not seem to hold any love for the man.


yeah, i saw. Lowtax seemed pretty burnt out of SA and it was more of a burden for him then anything when he left in 2020
