The chat pure crap thread

Talk about anything you want to talk about which it isn't worth creating a thread about.

Good idea? Bad idea? Let's talk about it.

water main break a few blocks away, ok to shower but have to boil all water before consuming. what a pain in the ass, never realize how often you ingest water out of the tap. I'm cheap and always thought bottled water was a ripoff, now contemplating going down to the basement to retrieve the one big jug I have down there left over from hurricane sandy. seems unfair to fill the cats' water bowl with just-boiled water.

that's some pure crap chat, right there.

I've found six spiders in the last five nights. Two of them were big, the others were small and two of them could jump. I worry there's going to be a plague of spiders.

i just did a calculation and this will be my 6th week wfh, so that's well over 40 days including weekends.

i think i will wait for the 5 day weeks to equal 40, which is couple weeks off, then i will start self-lacerating myself for not doing something more productive than reaching 'monkey man' on dissensus

i'm confused between this thread and 'stray thoughts' during quarantine.

i was thinking, if you made this forum now, would it be more rhizomatic? so it's less linear basically. so you could tie two threads together and things. would need more modding i suppose.

are there examples tho?

so, not walled gardens like fb/insta, but places where the structure is messier, maybe tag based, dunno. obvs tags don't work cos they require user intervention, and no one can be arsed.

but things like back tying, surely thats being done somehwere.

Discord can have loads of channels with people hopping between them, tagging each other etc. Also some people using voice chat, some people text, some people both.

It's not so much a gaming thing now. They have them for all sorts.
well my dudes i was considering how we could escape from this software, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VBulletin which has lots of limitations and is not really supported anymore - the top contender these days would be (Free Open Source) Discourse, or maybe (Proprietary, same devs who originally created this) Zenforo.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XenForo
My thoughts are about whether to just set up one of them, then ask everyone to start chatting over there instead, or whether to copy all the archives too....
We might need a dissensus summit to work it out, and a bunch of $$$ would be handy too

Last time you all approached us, you never followed up your emails.
Welcome to reconnect - what sort of price would you pay for the forum?

Best wishes

Hi,

Hope this day finds you and your community well. My name is ...., I have recently taken over acquisitions with GroupBuilder. I wanted to reconnect to see if you are now open to selling your forum, Dissensus. If you are, please let me know the best contact email so we can chat more.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

All the best,

.
Stray thoughts was supposed to be more thoughts related to living in quarantine. But I recently posted in there about imagining Shakespeare orgasming so that obviously went wrong.
