They should still be calibrating to match the same physical reality though.

You've got awesome colours. Because the eye/brain adapts to the environment/context you still percieve the correct colours (more or less) even if you don't physically see them, so you can still manage to use close to the correct colours.

Your eyes/brain are probably just adapted to the old incorrect colours. When I first used a proper screen calibrator the results looked disgustingly yellow at first but soon normalized and switching back to uncalibrated looked even more horrible. Most displays seem to have overstrong blue by default.

Volunteers are the real problem with society today. I mean, people offering to help others without demanding payment, that's basically communism.

I've always pronounced it Leonard, as my so named buddy is just an outline.

With something between claw and fingertip grip I need a shortie with some junk in the trunk, so I can anchor the heel of the hand on the desk and anchor outer ball of the hand on the mouse.

Any former Logitech G9 series users here who can recommend a replacement?

I tried a few other mice when my original G9 died and didn't like any, but now my G9X is peridoically dropping out or knocking out the USB port.

Never heard of Deluxe Video before. Kind of a grown-up version of Cartooners.

Do a google image search for "botfly larvae" and you might change your mind.

I never realised that ombrophobia was so controversial.

What's the deal with the human phobia of rain?

My meat is wrapped in oiled leather, essentially waterproof.

Is human meat wrapped in paper or suede or something?

Yes, blatant hemispherism.

Great colour reduction skills bro.

Don't know much about these newfangled social things but I recall reading that Slack is like Discord:

Or try pasting with Shift+Ctrl+V to paste as plain text. Usually works on most places I've tried.

Half-arts, the product of miscegenation, corruption of the pure pixel art with the taint of lesser arts.

surt @ 5/12/2017 14:24 commented on Big Bird

It's nothing to do with elitism. Plenty of shit art gets posted here (I've a whole gallery of evidence). It's about classification.

No one's saying that pixel-art-as-we-define-it is better than other-kind-of-art (though it is, obviously).

I'm all in favour of allowing pixel-ish art and pixel-allied as well, just classify it as such.
