How not to make a website

I decided to waste some of my time writing this shit, instead of doing something actually productive. But something that is productive to someone might not be for another person. I don't know. Who knows then?

I decided not to move my usual website here. I already have 3 clearnet mirrors of it. I don't think I need more. So I decided to post anything random here. I don't make it for others to read. That's not my goal. The reason that page exists it's because qorg told me he hosts this service and I accepted joining it. Simple as that.

If you ask who am I, you can find me with my username/handle/whatever-you-call-it as getimiskon. Not the best username out there, but it's unique. Like a kind of identity. I don't know anyone who would think about that. Also I don't like usernames like XxX_SuperHacker69420_xXx (and nobody with a functioning brain over the age of 7 does as well). I'm born in the Y2K, so it technically makes me a zoomer, yet I hate a lot of "zoomer things". Do I have a boomer mentality? For some things, probably.

What do I do in my "life"? I like messing with computers. I love using Linux and Unix-based OSes in general. I don't know why, but I always liked CLI interfaces. My first PC that had Windows 98 SE install made me love the command line and computers in general. If you ask me for my current setup, I run on an acer laptop with an i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. It's nice for my needs, but I hate its design. And it's a pain in the ass to fix, to the point I want to find its designers and brutally kill them. FIX YOUR LAPTOPS' HINGES, YOU FUCKING COCKSUCKERS! I also hate JavaScript, but these days I'm working on that shit when I'm bored. Why the fuck I do that to myself? Am I becoming a soydev? I hope not.

As for other random shit, if you can read searunes like this: "πω ρε φίλε... τι μαλακίες γράφω πάλι...", then you know from what part of the world I come from. As you may noticed, I don't really have a life, like most internet people. If someone says so, he's a liar. He's LARPing or he's a normie scum! REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!1! GET OUT OF THE INTERNET!!!

I don't have anything else to write for now. It's already late.

Windows 11 - How to polish a turd

Some of you may have noticed that Microsoft has recently released a new prerelease version of the spyware called Windows. It's a bit hard to believe that this corporation has released a new version of their OS, after forcing the meme that's called "Windows as a Service", which was a dumb idea. After some rumors about the new version, some of us got to see the polished piece of shit Windows 11 is going to be.

So, let's get started with the minimum requirements. This version of Windows is more demanding than the last one. 4 GB of RAM and "Secure Boot" is required. So, a locked machine and lots of useless shit. No thanks, Microsoft. I won't update my system to that shit. If you happen to have a low end machine and want to upgrade to the new version, get fucked!

I saw the new UI, and I don't think it looks that bad. But it seems like a desperate attempt to copy something that looks better. And I thought that the light theme of Windows 10 was a ripoff of the KDE Plasma theme... Windows 11 now has its own version of a dock, which just moves everything from the left side of the taskbar to the center of it. Microsoft copied Apple's design, because of course!

Work in progress, because I'm too bored to finish it
