Bittorent is just as basic as it gets. Azureus and uTorrent have a hell of a lot of options. Last time I used BT, which I admit has been more than a couple years, basically all you could do was download. Plus it begged you for donations every five times you opened it.

:\  ok, but that's all i want to do is download. I have been known in the past to rant and rave about 'features'. I am not a fan of features and options. The more options there are the more likely I'll fuck something up.

Well, one very handy feature is the ability to download only selected files in a torrent. I don't know if BT has this, but it didn't used to, or I remember it not being able to. Really handy for those huge porn compliations when you only want one freakin' video.

i have my cousins 21st tonight and i really dont wanna go on account of shes invited 180 people PLUS our very large family, none of whom are going except me, the family that is. um. so of the family, im the only one going and so i dont know anybody there except her and probably some of the fucking jocks i went to school with who i really have no desire to see. and its a masquerade type thing and i didnt have much notice so i shot down to the $2 shop and bought this crappy plastic mask that makes me look like a raccoon somehow and i dont even own any nice shirts that fit me cause ive lost a bit of weight since last year when i had money to burn and rarara. this fucking plastic raccoon mask though looks so tacky and has glitter on it and im thinking its probably a girl mask and yeah, its not on a stick and i literally had like $10 to my name today so i couldnt go to the costume shop. fuckfuckfuck

and anyway, its not like she even wanted me there because i bumped into her at uni and she was like all upset that nobody was coming - not even "oh hi cousin its been a while since ive seen you how are you" - and so i listened to her bitch about that for a wihle and then she was like "oh you should come" and now im fucking expected to be there even though 180 people got invites and i didn't. i mean seriously, what the fuck. and my mask has glue and glitter and shit and is silver/grey but has scratches and looks about the tackiest its possible to even look and she went to sydney (as in got on a plane with her mother and went to another country) to go shopping for her mask. and basically i dont roll with her crowd and i dont do social situations too well and i hate having to put myself through this sorta shit to keep up appearances for my family when nobody else is fucking showing up.

also ive got another 21st tonight, one i'd much prefer to go to and its doubling as some sort of dance party thing at some crappy venue about five minutes walk from the other place but dances parties you can't really show up in a suit and mask and i don't have any money so i tihnk the idea is to get really fucking pissed, hopefully on my cousin's tab and then go to this other one but i'll have to stop home and get changed, which isnt even an issue really because i live literally 2 minutes walk from the other place.

i'd much rather stay home and watch football.

and my flatmate is currently in the shower and using the hot water, which for some reason on weekends doesnt last very long and she probably doesnt think im gonna have a shower because i had one about five hours ago but the water went cold really quickly then and i need to use the bathroom for quite some time to psych myself into going out.

truly, i need a quick mask solution. holy shit its 6:20 ive gotta go in like an hour. my god. this is going to be a horrible horrible horrible horrible horrible night.

I want to go out to the party of my guy friend who I sort of like but I didn't know for sure if I was invited until I'd organised something else with friends, who could also go but might not want to. Rar

Yeah, I think Catholicism as a majority religion vs. Catholicism as a minority religion really is the key here (hence my disclaimer that this certainly won't hold in countries where the Catholic church is actually powerful). Living in a country where 70% of the population are members of the Catholic church, I can't quite say I share your experience. On the other hand, here Protestantism is actually generally associated with liberal values and cosmopolitanism, which probably makes little sense to you.
You historically get a cosmopolitan protestantism, like what flourished in the Baltic/North Sea trading cities, and puritanism, like what happened especially in poorer climes. Both share the bulk of the protestant faith and way of life, including a self-identification as common-sensical as opposed to the esoterics of catholocism, but asceticism really only took hold among puritans.

Also now I'm fucking annoyed at the fact that I still feature as part of those 70%. I need to get my shit together and resign from that club.

you say that as if you're married to the church and you need to get a divorce. as far as i always knew, one's membership in a religion ended the second you realized that you didn't believe in its central tenets anymore. are things different in austria?

also, i don't use soulseek personally, but last time i was at my friend brandon's house, it was working fine for him. i don't know what reese is talking about.

cb, i hope you didn't go to your cousin's party. she sounds like she wouldn't have cared if you did, and you sound like you didn't want to go, so dude... it's not worth it.

gi, here in america we have the conservative protestant values of the puritans mixed with the crazy capitalist values i mentioned above. it's some kind of weird hybrid.

oh, and hey: thread continued here.

Yeah, that's not how things work here - everyone who is baptised is automatically a registered member of the church, unless they specifically take steps to leave it, which I haven't done yet because I am forever too lazy to do so (it's not even possible to do it in written form, and you have to dig up some old documents and bring them with you, and some people report that they even had to pay for the process, although others say that it's free and that you only have to pay if you get a confirmation document, which you do not necessarily need - in other words, it's a drag). That not only means showing up in statistics you might not actually want to be part of, but also that you are legally required to pay a certain percentage of your income to the church. Now, right now I am exempt from this because I'm a student, but they still keep bothering me with their silly demands (okay, okay, they might not do this so frequently if I wasn't also too lazy to send them confirmation of my continuing student-status), and anyway I should certainly do it before I graduate, because, y'know, I can think of better causes to donate to than the fucking catholic church.

edit: ah, sorry, I got the x-post notification, but I didn't read on to the last line before posting, so I didn't notice about the new thread.

RE BT: i have a mac, never used utorrent, thought it was illegal at OiNK, so never cared. normal bittorrent just sucks.

andrew, soulseek works, yes, it works like it always has, which is to say no quality control, one peer at a time downloading, so it's slow, and now that search results have been dwindling, it's really just useless.

banana, you should learn how to use things and take advantage of features and options.



in other annoying news, i managed to vomit all over my room and partially out my window last night in my sleep. never touching 151 again.
