Speaking of bread reminds me it is time to feed my flock of pet rocks.
There's a knife on my kitchen table. I use it for bread and butter.
on the topic of language: There is a general "you", not meaning you personally and a personal "you" meaning you personally. Sometimes it is not easily detected, which one it is.
@Zizka: I was not even addressing you, just adding thoughts to the current topic but the fact that you are so quick to resonate on it, jumping to being defensive makes me wonder whether I touched a nerve there.
@king: isn't it just? This is what happens when you type stuff in a cellphone, you end up with paychological problems.
@Dennis: you're reading too much into this. This is strictly a language related question. I don't know anyone in this situation, not at the moment anyway.
Actually, don't even suggest therapy right away but discuss it with a professional first.
As an outsider who is not inside someone elses head, it is impossible to make an accurate assessment of the mental state of any other person unless that person wants to talk and share and participate in an in-depth analysis of their state of mind but even then, no one who is not a qualified professional should ever assume to be able to make such assessments and expect to be able to "help" because if the person is having real issues, things can escalate quickly and consequences can be fatal.
If you are under the impression that someone you know may need real help, suggest therapy but don't assume there is anything more you can do. Also, make sure they are actually suffering from their behaviour. If they are not suffering (and that is left for their own judgement to decide not yours) do not interfere, unless they are a danger to themselves or others but even then, stay away and discuss the matter with a professional to get advice what to do and what not to do.
This is a pretty awesome typo. My gratitude to you and who ever placed the "a" next to the "s".
Ah ok, thanks. I thought under the weather could be used for paychological problems too.
Under the weather just means either sick or feeling down. I would just say that person needs their 'alone time'. Like me.
Hmm... I don't mean personality-wise. I mean when someone isolates himself from others/quiet because he has some issues. A temporary thing, not some trait of character. I appreciate the input however but it´s not quite what I mean. Under the weather? Is it ok for this ?
Not entirely sure what you mean. Someone who has isolated themself from others due to personal issues? I'm not sure that we have a common expression for that. The person might be a recluse, a shut-in, a lone wolf, or a hermit, but none of those specify the reason that the individual is solitary. You can be up a creek or in a rut, but these situations don't mean you're alone.
What's an English expression for someone who is in his bubble ? I mean, someone who is by himself because he's having some trouble, personnal problems?
Maybe it was a given ****. That one time we discussed Elk's preference for huge horse meat, was the high point of the CB, and downhill ever since.
Did the dream include reasons or was it just a given fact?
But Elk, you're a pretty fairy; fairies don't die, they just get prettier.
i had a dream that i dont have much longer to live
At least you're not whining about it nearly a decade later. That's the important thing.
You people wouldn't be saying that if you knew how grumpy the old mods were. And "grumpy" is me being polite here. XD
Shall I join my brothers there?
to the barricades of freedom!

I love kissing ass.
Down with the mod oppressors!
¡Viva la Revolución!
4? You're making me out to be an antisocial anarchist, I only had gripes against 2 of them.
And I never said they weren't good, only that they had no people skills or finesse. A certain someone told me to go fuck myself because I had the nerve to leave comments like "good job" "this looks nice" "great work". He said the comment section was for discussion of techniques and not kissing ass.
green. Just because you did not like those 4 Mods does not mean they were not great and responsible for the way PJ is today. I miss them all.
Thank you for your insight.
Everything is flashing, like signal lights. Find your rhythm.
The attention seems to have passed already though, so now it just feels like I'm left to die after having been raped by a convoy of steamrollers.
But my ego is causing me nothing but suffering. I'd rather know of an easy way to rid myself of ego completely. Guess I can not be a successful artist then. Or I should practice being cool about ego. But how?
You must use the attention to fuel a planet-sized ego. That's how artists succeed.
That's a relief to know for I really can't concentrate while I'm under the impression that great things are expected of me.
Don't worry on dA that attention will fade when the next emo boy band haircut picture is posted, and on twitter the next sandwich will steal the spotlight from you. It's only temporary attention.
I'm freaked out a bit about the amount of attention I unexpectedly got on something on dA overnight. Guess I should not complain though. Same goes for something I posted on twitter. I think I'll go back hiding in a cave. This attention is not good for me. It's getting to my head and makes me feel pressured too much to perform and I can't work like this. Must find inner balance.
Your chaotic good charater is showing. No paladin class for you.
greenraven always wins.
Also I had this weird dream tonight that jal went on a powertrip. We weren't allowed to have any fun in the chatterbox, we're allowed to post links to anything even remotely fun, and jal was yelling and cursing a lot, and was mass-deleting people's galleries for virtually no reason at all. In short he was possessed by the ghosts of ye olde mods of yore (you know which ones if you've been here long enough). Boy was I glad that was just a dream. XD
Green Raven wins.
'fool' challenges are April fool's challenges not 'fool' challenges, fool!
OK then talk your way out of the he reccuring Fool challenges then.
So many groit entries, not sure who i should vote. Demn, couldn't do mine. And hello everyone, may you guys have a great day.
Its was that challenge that resulted in never having 'PJer' challenges ever again because it turns out that unlike me, all of y'alls are not universally loved here and challenges are meant to be inclusive.
Where I come from, having your pants down and jalonso is a synonym.
Now now jal why must you tempt me to catch you with your pants down? Never you say?
Posting a weekly challenge in public nullifies it :(
You however, better make a jal fanart pixelbug real soon, k.
Always send an idea to any Mod but skamocore is usually the best choice because he's the boss of that.
Challenges about other PJers (Mods are PJers) are never used. The only exception to this is the kid's drawing challenges where a PJer drawing from when they were kids, or PJer kids are cool.
Anyone with a cool children's drawing is always welcome to send in if yours, your kids or unknown so long as the image lends itself to be interpeted freely.
Bootlegs are awesome because the majority of the time they're done by people who have little to no grasp of the Engrish langauge. Anyone who wants a few cheap giggles should check out Pokemon Veitnamese Crystal.
I have played it and it's as every bit as enlightening in it's zen wisdom as the screenshots will have you believe.
Indeed, really impressive entries all around from last weeks challenge.
(also happy birthday eggy )
Damn, voting in the weekly challenge poll for this week was nuts. So many great entries.
I thought of an idea for the weekly challenge.
As a little thank you for the moderators who keep the website running, how about a personalized take on the avatar of one of the moderators? Could be fun!
Hello. Oh, I edited my comment on http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/89789.htm and the other comment are gone! I use Firefox ...
Thanks for the insight!
So many pumpkins... voting was not easy.
You pay more for more bandwidth, text messages, etc because the channels actually do get congested (even moving electrons representing bits at lightspeed, the cables can only transmit so much data in a given period), necessitating the building of more transmission lines and data centres, etc. Congestion also damages service for other customers, which can mean lost revenue if they leave.
A lot of companies ridiculously inflate the prices customers pay of course, but they come from legitimate payments the company has to deal with. Customers overdrafting their bandwidth allowance was a pretty significant problem at a smaller telecom company I worked at.
You pay for the service though. I mean, I understand that you'd pay for a service. What I don't understand is being charged more money if you text more. It´s not like there's someone mailing the messages, 50 or 200 shouldn't really matter no?
that's a very specific eccentricity
Same reason why the car place charges you $50 to change $5 worth of oil, because they can.
There's no such thing as upkeep. Not in any tangible way.
Speaking of money, why is it that bandwith cost money? I mean, when you exceed your bandwith, you pay penalties. Why is that?
Same thing with txt messages. I was charged 300$ of txt messages. It's to pay for the network upkeep?
As a Windows 8 user I have a long list of gripes. At the very top of this list is the inability to play my old Windows 95 games.
It keeps asking me if I wish to browse the Microsoft database on how I can activate my apps. 1) They're not apps. 2) There's nothing to activate, JUST RUN THE DAMN GAMES!
My son's so confused about pictures now! This morning he aimed his camera at me and said, "Daddy, I'm going to take your selfie."
You gave the' plant-life' much more life and that's the beauty of a collab.
You made the plants much more horrifying so it suits the theme much more now.
Transitions may seem hard but you know.. you got to keep yourself updated.. (:
Thank you so much for the feedback, at the beginning I had thoughts like "oh my god, I screwed the whole 'plant-life' concept"
I'm glad you like it!
Same here.. just about 5 days ago Don't. Got a new mini ITX case with a small custom build PC (it's rad).
It's ok, I set it so I never have to look at the cheap-lookin' app interface ever.
Also really liking what you did on the ISO collab!
I guess this is the software tools version of planned obsolescence.
Hey guys, I want share with you this little app I made this morning.
You can take a picture of yourself with different retro palettes.
It only works in Chrome, from what I've tested.
If the system would not necessitate everyone to keep making money and would stop training everyone from an early age on into believing that profit and "winning" is the only valid way of thinking and living, the people in the world could cooperate freely to make much better products than we have now, instead of competing for tiny slices of whatever promised cake (and we all know the cake is a lie).
Maybe software companies are trying to shift towards subscription models as they realize they can not survive on classic buy-once-use-forever products anymore. Good software always had that "disadvantage" of never turning bad or breaking down after too much mileage or any of those "problems" that essential non-software products have which frequently require people to buy them over and over again.
Don't know what to think of the subscription model. It's certainly useful to generate a more predictable/stable income for the company but end users likely pay more in the long run than if they would only buy it once and then use it forever.
The idea of software-as-a-service is not new. I think it is only a question of time until the classic software-product vanishes altogether. Probably a necessity forced upon software by the capitalist system which requires everyone to keep "making" money to get along.
Someday, mankind should come to the conclusion that money is an outdated, old-fashioned concept which should be abandoned altogether. Profit should be irrelevant and the prime directive of the "system" should be to create happiness and to provide for humans instead of being this in-human machine which only serves money while almost completely ignoring human nature/needs.
Just hearing cloud and service makes me sick, my Internet is really unstable ( cause I live between montains lol ), so I'd just use the old version if that will be the case.
So Photoshop is no longer a physical product; but just a monthly subscription, on-line cloud "service"!?
"I LOVE THIS TOWN!!!"
Yes, that's why I specifically called her a him.
It is a gurl?
Someone I know just sent his first nude selfie over the internet. They grow up so fast.
Gotta do what you gotta do to win, right?
Congratulations on the successful assassination of the three other runners and your well earned 1st place!
I'll keep a mental note to never mess with you
Yeah, I've submitted it now. It seemed to have been some kind of temporary error.
It seems to be an issue with file size (possibly also animation). Could you try submitting a version of the image that is under 10?
Is anyone else unable to submit anything? I keep getting "500 internal server error" when I hit submit.
Oh joy, I broke my pumpkin by uploading the larger-than-10kb version and now it shows no image and I get a 503 error when trying to upload the old one
*edit* ...and it's fixed somehow. Disregard ;D
What wonderfully coincidental timing.
No. You were the best today. Congrats.
Aww yeah got 1st place in my race today, thanks to the other 3 faster runners on my team being sick or injured.
By the way tuaarita was once called Leroy. Thought I'd mention that.
8 players was hard enough they said simply because of the weapon balancing.
I love the developers on this game. Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank with a mix of Tony Hawk is what most reviewers I've read so far are comparing it to. Which is a great thing because they made that said game. And that game was AWESOME!!!
I'll let you ladies know what I think come realease at midnight on the 28th.
I just gave money to the NFL's Breast Cancer cause today, dear sir!
And after a quick internet search I found out that apparently Sunset Overdrive isn't an MMO. I swear to god after watching the initial E3 trailers I thought it was an MMO.
See? This is what I'm talking about marketing and hype. They need to stop bombastically showboating and just show the game for what it is.
I wasn't very impressed with the game. It looks interesting, but I'm just not feeling it with the gameplay I saw.
Don't get me wrong I watched the trailers and I liked what I saw. But my spidey senses are tingling that it's just not going to live up to all the promises it's been making. People were stoked about all the things City Of Heroes and DC Universe Online were gonna do, both of those ended up being mediocre. At some point ambition and reality will have to collide. I can also throw in a bonus Tabula Rasa example if you want.
No one's stopping you from donating to needy and charitable causes, it's your lunch money pumpkin, spend it however you like.
Season passes and add-ons are usually already on the game disc you just bought. UNLESS of course it's something added through their online servers (like COD Maps) over the following months.
I thought [you] knowing that I payed for more of what I already did...
would get your goat steamed!
And I hear some people actually payed to be masochistically tortured in Star Wars Galaxies. What's your point?
If that comment made you sass...
I even bought the Season's Pass...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GUY FROM THE PLACE I CAN'T PRONOUNCE!!!
switched from win. 7 to 8.1
Actually there are a few good examples of marketing done right. Just nothing I can think of at 6 in the morning while laying in bed browsing sites on my phone.
Remember that one company that told how shitty their game was and no one bought it and they went bankrupt but their non-customers where happy?
I dunno. Seems like "one of those" games that's not going to live up to the hype.
I think that a lot of games need to cut down on the marketing and on the amount of promises they make. If you tell people your game is gonna suck then they'll be happy with no matter what you release. Overhype it and they'll eat you alive when you don't deliver. Marketing 101.
10 DAYS UNTIL SUNSET!!!
Ah, new season of Gold Rush...best show on earth! :)
