re: autism, pseudoscience 

@RadiantEmber @kiilas That would require treating us like people.

autism, pseudoscience 

experts: Children with autism often walk on their toes.

me: Yeah, for me it's a sensory preference.

experts: No one knows why this strange behaviour occurs.

me: It's a sensory preference.

experts: There are some theories, some experts speculate that it's a behaviour that the brain produces to reduce sensory stimulation.

me: Yeah, it's a...

experts: But ultimately, nobody knows. The strange autistic behaviour will forever remain a mystery.

@RadiantEmber That's weird, because when you dye your hair crazy colors like blue that is a prerequisite for it to take.

@RadiantEmber They probably assumed you already knew to pre-lighten.

@RadiantEmber Did you pre-lighten it? I made the mistake of not doing so my first go and ended up with a bluish brown.

I just got my stuff from Stimtastic and I am really happy. The input from them feels perfect, especially the brush and chew stim.

folks literally tried to run a black-run instance into the ground

@Garrison I feel this, except on mastodon. I love it here.

@[email protected] @stolas Using virtualization software to run video games is not for the faint of heart, you generally need two graphics cards and it would also not be possible for most laptops. The process is not beginner friendly at all. Also tile window managers are not necessarily beginner friendly, I would recommend OP use a desktop environment at least until they understand more of the OS.

@KitsuneAlicia OK. I am sure I have tried that, but I will give it another go. Thanks for the help.

@stolas POP OS and ubuntu flavors or both really good for gaming. I have also heard Manjaro is good, but I never had much luck with it. I would recommend installing virtual box and trying out each distro before you install so you can get a good feel for which is best. Also some others mentioned dualbooting, which might be fine in some cases, but in no circumstance should you keep windows on the same drive as Linux. Windows 10 does not like Linux and might still corrupt your Linux partitions anyways even with enough space.

@KitsuneAlicia Odd, because it never worked for me no matter what I did. What version of GE did you use though?
