there's a scam called the 'black money scam' that has, as its central thing, showing the victim a briefcase full of what is supposedly money dyed black so the authorities won't realize it's cash. the scammer then picks a bill and 'washes' it with a solution that supposedly removes the black coloring, and then asks the victim for money to buy more of the solution.

and in order to try to catch people who search for the name of the solution, there are a bunch of fake websites of that pretend to manufacture the stuff. and if you search 'vectrol paste', 'tebi-manetic', or 'anti-breeze', you can find a bunch of them. fake companies pretending to sell a product that doesn't exist.

and sometimes i have to convince myself that this isn't, like, somehow a moral failing

oh good nixos's updated discord finally percolated down to me so now i can actually fucking use it

i really need to just remember what to do if this happens again

basically the thing is that poe requires like 10-15 hours of investment in a character before you can actually map with it, and i've done that so many times i'm hitting burnout. chronicon seems like it requires way less of that.

Show thread

i think i'll just play chronicon instead

maybe i'll give poe 2 a shot when that comes out... whenever. probably 2021.
