Waifu Humpd/a/y Stream - Café Edition
How's it going, anon?

Getting through the week alright? Enjoying the season? We're going to be stress testing the backup streaming server courtesy of anon.cafe's BO holding a small weekday stream over here.
Since this isn't the regular stream, you'll have to redirect your music player over to: http://radio.anon.cafe:8000/stream.m3u

We'll be playing Shibayan records bossa nova CDs, but you are welcome to make /r/s. I'm gonna hit the showers and make some dinner here, this is a lazy stream tonight.

Hmmmmmm... Something's definitely up. Lemme try something.

I think the streaming server is in Romania and I'm in America, so that could be influencing it.
Replies: >>468
I'm gonna go take a shower and prep dinner, so there shouldn't be any other major RAM usage or network usage from my computer for the next 15-30 minutes (should give us some information about where the lag is generating).
It is going through a long series of tubes.  

Good thing we're stress testing this and working out the kinks now. Is cafe the bunkers bunker?

It’s rock solid for me and I’m receiving it through a VPN that terminates in America, so it’s hopping across three separate continents.

Café is their own imageboard, but I like to think of them as the bunker's bunker or just a chill place to relax. I try to pop my head in at least a couple times a week since they were nice and let us hijack this board the last time smug was kill.

/ita/lians colonizing Julay. Smug little girls colonizing /cafe/. Imageboard migrations are truly a strange phenomenon.
I'm guessing a loose  connector/ fucked ribbon cable. I got a quote for about $50 to replace it and the videos I've seen on it make me not want to do it myself. Very fiddly to do and more expensive to get the tools/materials outright. I got pikachu and got bulbasaur as my companion. I've gotten mudkip, and charmander as my PC before.

Ever since the GBA SP Nintendo build quality has been going generally downhill with some exceptions. $50 is the most I'd pay for a repair after that I'd say get one of the XLs. I have one and the larger screen is nice. Hinge is a little floppy though.

By the way, give me a heads up if there's specific boards you'd prefer I didn't advertise on, otherwise I figured since it's a /cafe/ stream it's free game in that regard (likewise I don't think anyone minds if you let other imageboards borrow your servers on your terms for streaming since they're, well, your servers). I can't think of a better way of wording that so I hope it doesn't sound rude.
Replies: >>485 >>497
I don't particularly care who you invite, but that's just me.
I’ve been playing Disco Elysium, which is a kind of cyber-dieselpunk noir Planescape. I’m only a few hours in but I love it. It’s beautiful and depressing and psychedelic and just full on in a way I haven’t seen games do for a long time. But what I love most is that the skills you spec out in character creation form shards of your personality that are always doing skill checks in the background during conversations or encounters and will cut in with colour, advice, or interference very often. My favourite is a skill called Inland Empire, which seems to represent how well-developed your inner reaches are, and it manifests itself as scenes where you imagine the murder victim’s corpse is talking to you, or sometimes strong and irrational intuitions. Even your drug habit is a skill and has its own input into conversations and encounters. You’re also unreliable as a narrator.

I shouldn’t be talking about it here but it’s what’s in my heart right now. Give it a look. It’s wonderful.

A little bit. We're around the beginning-midpoint of Volume 4 of 7 of Shibayan Records 2hu Bossa Nova.
It does feel like that. I was wandering a part of the city I’ve been through many times before and I must have gone down a different street than usual. One of the signs stood out to me so I went down its alleyway. The window had little glass chalk drawings on it that seemed to be from customers and there was paraphernalia visible through the window that interested me. I look at their Twitter feed and see photographs of hobby things that I’m into. Must be a customer that came in or a flavour of the month thing, I think.

So I go back during opening hours with a hobby thing of my own. I see people inside but the sign says “closed”. I go up to the door and a woman comes out.
>”Are you open?”
>”No, we’re closed.”
>”Oh, really? Your Twitter feed said you were open though.”
>”Well, see, we’re about <hobby1>, <hobby2>, and so on... it’s not really for the public. So unless you’re into-“
>unzip a little of the bag I’m carrying, showing hobby item inside
>she visibly relaxes
>”Oh, good. In that case, come in. You should have called! Who introduced you?”
>”Oh no, I was just walking past and thought it looked like my kinda place.”

It was my kinda place. The food was absolutely delicious (they smoked their own cheese), they served great whiskey, I chatted with the owners about the hobby, and later other people came in. The whole thing basically seemed to be run by the owners out of their first floor because they wanted to, like they just couldn’t be bothered with society and decided to figure out this way of doing things. As I was leaving the woman owner gave me the place’s card with her mobile number handwritten on the top and told me to call ahead next time I wanted to come back so they could make sure there was enough room and get the place ready if needed.

Getting your transmission loud and clear.
They’re not an inexpensive hobby. But if you go for PVC dolls like the Volks Dollfie Dream line then they’re not bank-breaking. Their standard dolls are very cute except Towa, she has downs, BRING BACK MIIKO so it’s a matter of picking the face, bust size, body plan, etc that you like the most. There are also injection-moulded budget dolls coming out of the troubled Smart Doll line by Danny Choo but having seen their "higher-end” units in person and seeing the company’s attitude toward their quality control issues (“it’s not a defect, it’s wabi sabi goys”) as well as its general contempt for customers, I have to recommend against them. Go with Volks. 

There’s a >>>/doll/ board starting up here on anon.cafe if you want to know more.

The best part has been seeing the ((( usual suspects ))) in the gaming press gnaw their collective knuckle with concealed resentment at how much better the writers of the game are than them. They have no choice but to praise the game but there’s always this sour, catty undertone to it. Delicious.
Had some coffee and green tea earlier. I think I'm starting to like coffee over tea. It's been the opposite for the longest time as coffee makes me feel oddly greasy sometimes.

Caffeine addiction is the strangest thing to me. I have a friend that had to swear off all forms of caffeine soda, energy drinks ,etc. He would go through legit withdrawals that would turn him into a giant dick. Maybe caffeine over sensitivity is a genetic thing though.

It's a Wednesday stream and I'm ending it before midnight, so probably not.
Replies: >>539 >>543
I don't think it's the withdrawals that turn people into giant dicks, it's the headaches combined with not having an outlet for lack of sleep (the main reason people consume large amounts of caffeine in the first place). This is why I advise swapping to oral forms of caffeine like mints/gum, and slowly bringing yourself down to sub-100mg quantities by reducing on average about 50mg less in a day every 3-5 days.

The part I hated was the up and down of my energy and fatigue. Now that I’m off the stuff its all so much smoother and consistent.

Tapered reduction is definitely the way to go. I did it by swapping to an equivalent dose delivered with gween tea and then gradually reducing it over a few weeks. I really, really missed the nervous habit of holding and sipping a warm mug when I was stressed so I replaced it with rooibos tea, which turns out to be absolutely delicious when your body isn’t dialling down the taste because it’s searching for caffeine.
That's a large gif. Why are some gifs hundreds of KB and others breaking into the MB? Is it just higher resolution and more frames?

Gween tea. The leaves are probably tapped but I'll try and stretch them out for another few presses.
I am very sad. How will we sleep if you don’t read us a story?

Number of colours and complexity of frames too. GIFs store information using indexes so if there are blocks of the same colour next to each other then that takes less information to store, and if there are fewer colours total then that takes less overall.

The Carillon is a rare instrument. The instrument consists of at least 23 cast bronze, cup-shaped bells, which are played serially to produce a melody, or sounded together to play a chord. A traditional manual carillon is played by striking a keyboard – the stick-like keys of which are called batons – with the fists, and by pressing the keys of a pedal keyboard with the feet. The keys mechanically activate levers and wires that connect to metal clappers that strike the inside of the bells, allowing the performer on the bells, or carillonneur/carillonist, to vary the intensity of the note according to the force applied to the key. Only a handful of them exist in the world, a little under 400 almost entirely focused in Europe. You are listening to the only travelling carillon that I know of. It was donated by a wealthy benefactor who wanted to hear the bells spread across North America. Carillon players have to go through years of rigorous training in order to become professionals. You are listening to an instrument that less than 0.1% of the human population will ever be able to hear right now, anon. Isn't that something special in a sense?
