Guide to post signatures (:boost_no:โ€‹) 

We've noticed that, when we sign posts as both of us, we tend to sign them differently depending on how exactly we're co-fronting at the moment. So here's a brief explanation of how I think we're using them--we're doing this however feels right, though, so this isn't a definitive guide.

-F: Post by Felthry alone
-R: Post by Rosemary alone
-F&R: Post by both of us, with Felthry as the main fronter who wrote it
-R&F: Post by both of us, with Rosemary as the main fronter who wrote it
-F/R: Post written by Felthry on behalf of Rosemary
-R/F: Post written by Rosemary on behalf of Felthry

i would like to request Opinions!:

Is it just nostalgia (we had this game as a kid) or is this actually really good music? youtube.com/watch?v=muN2EDa1mE

also if you look at enemy details, sometimes there's amusing things, like one generic enemy type called "hooligan" is noted as being someone "wanted on several counts of chicanery and multiple counts of shenanigans"

then if you go to that other npc and run around him three times counterclockwise, he gets dizzy, stumbles, and knocks a box off of the top of the really tall tower he's on, which then lands right next to the random well-dressed guy and you can go pick up its contents

this game's writing is a little weird but i appreciate the humor in having a random well-dressed npc in the middle of all these super-powerful bad guys who just says "do you know [other more major npc]? I heard he hates it if you run around him three times going counterclockwise. <beat> Don't ask me how I know that."

i want to see some big-name cross-platform video game come out and support some ridiculous platform

re: mh +, video games 

i think... we should do more of this

the game in question by the way is dragon ball z legacy of goku 2 on the gba

which we remembered being good but didn't think would *actually* be good, it's a pretty solid kinda.... zelda-like almost? with fewer puzzles and more monsters

this is the only dragon ball z media we ever did anything with so the characters keep referencing stuff we have no idea about

we tried playing the first game and that one *is* pretty bad

mh +, video games 

we saw something that reminded us of a video game we played a long time ago as a kid and we went to go play it again and actually i feel like indulging in nostalgia is helping us remember the good memories from our childhood? instead of just the bad ones (mostly of kid-us embarrassing themself) that have plagued us as intrusive thoughts for over a decade

youtube recommended us a video about gamecube rpgs and now we want to play skies of arcadia and actually finish it this time

also thinking about how we've literally never seen another game do the kind of plot twist baten kaitos did, it'd be Pretty Neat if anyone else ever did that
-F

just out of *nowhere* remembered this tv show from the early 00s that we saw like two episodes of ever, does anyone else remember this show?

can people making videos stop doing that effect where you rapidly modulate the volume up and down, it's really disorienting and unpleasant

people have noted that cryptocurrency is crashing and that is 1) a net good and 2) i feel bad for the people who got caught in the scam and lost a lot of money or got stuck in heavy debt

let's not forget this was a big scam from the beginning

Begpost, please boost 

If you're feeling generous, money has been tight since I left my abusive workplace. Iโ€™m preparing to move out at the end of May, so anything you can give to help me make that process easier I would be extremely thankful for, because Iโ€™m going to need help getting my stuff out, and gas alone is nightmarishly expensive. Additionally I have medical bills and car repair costs I could really use help paying off. ๐Ÿ’œ

Thank you again, any amount is so so so so appreciated <3

maybe it's that they're complex enough to be interesting, but simple enough that you can fully understand the workings of one

boost converters are especially nice, but i also like flyback converters and have recently been warming up to the rare negative-in/negative-out buck converter (which no one actually makes controllers for so you have to trick a flyback controller into doing it)

dc-dc converters are just kind of nice

i'm not sure what we find so appealing about them, maybe just the way they work and how everything works in concert

and a little bit of how it feels like cheating physics but then it isn't really
