Bleach is waaay too long for me sadly. The longest anime I watched in recent times was Hunter x Hunter 2011 which was around 3 years ago I think? And 130ish eps? Which is already far longer than anything I would have considered watching, but I really got addicted to it lol. Not found a long anime I feel the same way about since.

I haven't watch an anime in months and months now - I'm watching other kinds of shows instead when my brain needs to Not Do Work for a while.

I would like to get back into the Pokémon Adventures manga however. Stopped somewhere back in the Black & White arc so I'm wayyyyy behind.

I've been keeping my spending pretty tied up, although for Black Friday I did get a new monitor for myself. That, and just before Christmas I did get a copy of Pokemon Violet, but otherwise haven't really done too much.
My country lay within a vast desert. When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world.

And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came, the wind carried the same thing... Death.

But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin.

I coveted that wind, I suppose.

Well, looks like my impromptu New Year's resolution of abandoning Twitter even for searching fanart and funny videos will be easier to stick to now. They removed the ability to view Tweets in chronological order altogether - and while some new tweets may pop up, it's mostly the algorithm that brings them to you.

If the layoffs didn't bring that hellsite under, I bet this will. Facebook and Instagram barely hung on when/ever since that same function was removed from their sites.

From what I can tell there's two timelines you can switch between (chrono and algorithm), but this option isn't exactly nice, it was there before anyways, but is just surfaced a bit more prominently now. It's not the best solution when what was there already worked, although one pro to this is that it's EXTREMELY obvious when you're looking at one over the other, whereas before Twitter could just randomly switch you back to the algorithm generated timeline whenever it felt like it and you had to pay attention to an icon in the top corner of the page that was really easy to miss. There were extensions for browsers to force a timeline that did help, but this isn't too bad a compromise.

I need a new phone. It's running out of storage to the point I deleted Pokemon Go (it never worked properly on my phone anyway).
how much storage capacity does it have?

i'd argue nowadays that 64GB is too little. 256 and 512 should be the upper, with 128 standard

System Files always seem to take up around 15 GB immediately.

yea definitely different. it's something you use while sitting down and it sits atop your lap.

here's an example:
