"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."

Interacting with a community is difficult, but the PaleMoon guys unfortunately seem to take it to a new level.

@Dee Recommend me a font. I discovered that I don't have one installed.

Also this reminds me of the time I got banned from the #PaleMoon forums for posting in it. I made a single post, praising the browser but pointing out one minor issue that I clarified I could live with. I got banned after being accused of saying something I didn't. I never ran PaleMoon again out of spite, and I'll never cease to tell this story.

Reading through the PaleMoon browser forums... Some guys over there certainly need to keep down the toxicity levels.

"His machine sounds like a good candidate for the scrap heap maybe" is not a valid answer to a user who is interested in maintaining builds of the browser for really old hardware.

I'm using PaleMoon nevertheless because the browser itself is good in pretty much every way.

OpenTTD is cool indeed. Just... wow! Like Simutrans on steroids!

“How to Leave the Planet

1) Phone NASA. Their phone number is (713) 483-3111. Explain that it’s very important that you get away as soon as possible.

2) If they do not cooperate, phone any friend you may have in the White House—(202) 456-1414—to have a word on your behalf with the guys at NASA.

3) If you don’t have any friends in the White House, phone the Kremlin (ask the overseas operator for 0107-095-295-9051). They don’t have any friends there either (at least, none to speak of), but they do seem to have a little influence, so you may as well try.

4) If that also fails, phone the Pope for guidance. His telephone number is 011-39-6-6982, and I gather his switchboard is infallible.

5) If all these attempts fail, flag down a passing flying saucer and explain that it’s vitally important that you get away before your phone bill arrives.”
