this is EXTREMELY late to the party, but parts of New England are decent, despite the cold. we have a fairly high cost of living compared to the rest of the country, but some of the smaller cities are doable, though our crime rate has gone up a smidge. but we're a fairly diverse population up here (especially Massachusetts, helps that it's the most populated), and overall lean liberal, which can help with adjusting since people tend to be a tiny bit more accepting. i have no experience with that, but my dad does (he immigrated from Europe in the 80's). someone in the south literally said after he said where he was from "That's wher all dem kangaroos er from, riiight?". he just kinda smiled and nodded.

as indicated by that, i'm from the Northeast US, where the cost of living is high and my state's wages are low! historic houses, beautiful scenery, rising drug problem, lack of affordable housing....

tbh i still love it here, despite itself. it's also nice that we don't have very much in the way of natural disasters here (blizzards, but otherwise the worst things in the region lately have been a drought due to climate change and an out-of-left-field tornado in Mass a few years ago). it can be a bit cold for people, though, so it's not for everyone. :0

i agree (with 'it's worth looking into'), since given his caliber, it's unlikely that he made ANYTHING that was absolute shit (and if it is, it's probably on purpose and VERY funny).

considering yesterday was Earth, Wind & Fire Day, i have them stuck in my head. kind of flip-flopping between "Got To Get You Into My Life" and "Let's Groove", with the occasional interlude of "Love's Holiday". just like last year, found a bunch that absolutely slap, and this time around i heard a bunch of classics i had no idea belonged to them. mum was also quite surprised that they're still going (and touring, but rn they're only touring in the SE US), and i was a bit surprised and saddened to learn that the founder and frontman has passed away. damn did he have range.

some of my tabs rn are artists i've found out about via reading Kurosagi, as it seems the author has a penchant for naming the chapters after songs by a particular artist (so like, volume one all had songs by the same artist, as did volume two, etc). i haven't investigated them yet, but if i find any gems, i'll share em'. :0

i hope you succeed. tbh it seems easier than Thanksgiving or Crimbus, but i think you're legally supposed to have those off anyway (not that that's ever stopped your company). separation of church and state my ass. xD;

one of the accidental responsibilities i've taken on via living at my parents' place is basically being their counselor. i hate it. just got subjected to a one-sided conversation with my dad about my mum's habit of leaving food outside for a stray cat, how he finds it stupid and a waste of money and how it attracted a fatass racoon recently. i do not care in the slightest and am often in the middle of their mutual dislike of each other. ><;;

unrelated: just saw this thread has an option to print. old forums are the best, lol. xD;

this feels.....generous. the internet here is hot garbage. to be fair, it's shortly after midnight, so no one else is using it, i think. (me having oceans of tabs open doesn't help, either.)

welcome, darling newbies~! the forum isn't as active as it was back WHEN I WAS YER AGEEEE (lol), but we're trying to keep it going. at the very least, i don't want to see this place die.

please remember to keep things respectful, read the forum rules, and try and post in topics that interest you! also, remember that this is a purely fan-run initiative, and we all have lives (well, most of us, i don't have much of one), so sometimes promised updates or other site matters might take a bit to drop. hope that's cool!

considering how long it's been since i joined up, and we have new people, i'll do a re-intro! (why not, the pre-sleep energy is reeeeeal)

i'm Choco, or Kari irl! i joined here 14 years ago yesterday! (i literally just realized that and was lowkey stunned, lol. on Earth, Wind & Fire Day, to boot!) i highkey take pride in my post count and am a bit cringe, especially given my liberal use of slang despite my age (over 30...). art student, not made of healthy stuff (none of my family is), i collect and study comics, total nerd. i've cosplayed a few -tans (i'm actually wearing my Homeko sweatshirt as we speak, lol), and favourite -tans include 7-tan (Nanami; none of the other ones made really vibed with me), 3.1-tan, 95-tan (i've cosplayed her), 2k-tan (her too), 1.0-tan (specifically the brown haired one, i've also cosplayed her and it was a pain, but i won a contest, so yay?) and a lot of the OS-kuns. i don't feel like the -kuns get enough love. personal philosophy for this site is that it's sort of our duty (?) to document as much about the fandom as we can, considering how small it is now (like, it was always small, but it's smallER).

sorry for the tsunami of text. again, hope everyone finds this place as cozy as i have for all this time! ^^

Quote from: Zacian King of Windows on September 22, 2022, 06:45:32 PMIs Windows 11-tan in the same vein like the Vistans, so there would be multiple or no?

With Windows 11 I really don't know. I am not well caught up on Futaba or other sources as to what their agreed upon designs are. I honestly heavily blame Microsoft making official -tans for killing a lot of the design ideas. But I do not think they have created an official 11-tan.
The only design for 11 I've seen is the loli that you use as your profile image. I really hope that's not the settled on design by the community TBH I'm not a big fan of child looking characters.

Please try to edit your old posts instead of creating new ones if no one has replied yet.

Also I'm moving discussion to a relevant board.
