    Windows 7 on my end has just become unsupported despite having only made the "last update" a couple days ago. Until I get a Windows 10 and a much better machine to poke around with as I'm now one of the ~25% of them, I might have to reduce the amount of time spent surfing on the web. This is because as expected, it ran on a "fixed product lifespan", with the first 5 years as mainstream, and the other half being extended life support. Now, that extension has just stopped when I just got in with a full-on notification that it is declared unsupported. Well, not really when it comes to surfing, but definitely so in terms of security. What this means is that my Google Chrome will keep me afloat just for casual surfing until the start of next year, but by then, every single bit out of that PC on this OS will be far deeper than limbo. Even going into Windows 10 would not be without a bunch of update hiccups to face every once in a while, and I'm pretty sure that I might not play the oldest games (especially Sims 3 firsthand, and maybe Worms), some of the data I put around from years back might be lost, too. Here are a few things I want to do from the get-go after receiving the out-of-support notice.

    1. All my older open RPs before this decade began I will grant "thread OP rights" to none other than @Backlash or @Angel depending on the theme, but I'll be the co-OP to assist when needed. Once I get my Windows 10, I'll take control once more.

    2. Expect me to come on by every few days rather than once a day because of the higher than usual risk of being targeted for viruses. I will not be looking after my inboxes or alerts for safety reasons in case someone else sends something very fishy or a pop-up alert, because it can be a virus waiting to strike a more vulnerable PC. That also means I also have to avoid accidentally mis-clicking something that would invariably lead me to something very dangerous until then. I might be on like around once 2-3 days, but the longer I wait, the more days I have to spread out between visits, overtime the risks accumulate to a point where even just sitting around in the comfort of desktop would not prevail as hackers now start looking out for anyone that still uses Windows 7, particularly those who own or work in a business that fails to migrate first due to many vulnerabilities exposed.

    3. If I have to make new events at this time before getting the Windows 10, which is not for a few more months, I have to let someone else with a better PC than me to assume the position after drafting any new ideas I have. similar to what I said in #1.

    4. I won't pursue newer, ambitious projects that would require a ton more of "performance babysitting" my outdated PC, such as the much anticipated Live2D Cubism studio I want to trial, a place where you can make your own full-screen original anime shows from scratch and not have to fall through mainstream anime and their waifus ever again. Technology surely has come a very long way but there might be a bit of a learning curve.

    And lastly, 5. I won't be modding my games again until I'm surely aware of what Windows 10 have to offer, hopefully I don't get invisibly spied on by the very company that makes them.


    This is not something to be alarmed at, because me and family are already working ambitiously to get myself on track with the latest standards as possible, and hopefully cheap on a tight budget. This is something I'm wholeheartedly excited about.

    Looking through ikea website every single day adding furniture to my shopping lists... which I won't buy for a while since I have no savings. But still gotta have dreams.
    Think I'm going to go with a loft bed to save space in my new studio one-room apartment I'll be getting. A bigger loft bed though, for the anime babes.

    Thinking about the future is exciting! Especially with big changes

    I want to be furniture in your room >: )

    I'm seeing no minor changes in progression the fictional American elections as of late, even though it is a slow build-up to the actual scenes. What would I say if I should expect a "worst-case scenario" of only 1-2 posts there per month rather than the average-case scenario, that would be very catastrophic for both of us. Yeah, ouch.

    I'm trying to remain optimistic in seeing how it goes.

    Last call looking for at least three more volunteers in the Anime North America elections besides @Backlash and @COUPLED, should you accept it would be a defining moment for @Backlash's nation. If the three or more come down here that I randomly looking for unanimously say "nay" or any variation of the word in quote, then the elections won't progress at all by tomorrow morning at 9AM EST. I'm not going to wait around longer than that. We have to do this, lest we let @Backlash's nation slowly die from being neglected.

    Small contributions even if it doesn't have to be staged like in a play always help, too, so help me out.

    I'm sorry, sweetheart. I wish things were a little easier for me. Despite my best efforts, I'm dealing with migraines every other day. It's so disappointing, since I wanted to post here tonight. Guess I've gotta ride it out, as usual... ^^'
