outrage addicts, inc'l puriteens and Only Conscious Humans

A hearty 'wazzap' to you, wanderer! Here's the lore on Bytemoth, a Digital Warlock harnessing the powers of sourcerors yet mightier, in attempt to conjure a virtual space I don't need to take vacations from. I am a highly asocial Computer Whiz with vast knowledge (that anyone could've gained), taking the shape of a pile of embers that burned out in 2017. The name itself represents a particular, peculiar fusion of analog and digital which I've strived- nah j/k, it's just the shortest thing I thought of that was hard to spell wrong and had no results on search engines when I started using it in late 12011.

Before arriving here, I was a resident of Geocities, well-practiced in the ancient magickal art of HTML4. Along the way, I've learned to enjoy collecting software, old digital cameras, and PlayStation games. But I do not yearn for simpler times, for the world was never simple; only I was.

Caution should be taken when attempting to befriend me, which is Not Easy to begin with, but we will especially not get along if you're an outrage addict, The Only Conscious Human, really into sports or crypto, conservative, of an Abrahamic faith, or hate furries. Being a completely non-spiritual post-theist who heavily leans left, what I'm trying to believe in is a universe that doesn't care, and people who do.

Due to being a Very Online Teen in the mid-12000s, toxins built up in my brain which I'm now attempting to filter out. I'm not proud of that whole 'racism is over so let's say the n-word' edgelord phase, but I won't pretend it didn't happen. What followed was a belief in some version of the just-world hypothesis that led to me briefly following the YouTube atheist/skeptic community into its anti-SJW phase. This was later corrected by Tumblr users sharing their lived experiences, prompting a realization that things were worse than initially assumed.

Extra tidbits about me include that I'm a teetotaler, possibly quoiromantic, and trying to reduce my sugar intake. I consider myself a social minimalist, physical midimalist, and digital maximalist - The Dream is owning a Toyota Sera and living in that sweet pad from the Umfend demo, where I'd have selected hardware atop an L-desk, each drive and flash cart within just absolutely loaded up with files.

Mobile Phone History

[Rotating mobile phone]

Cingular Wireless

Everyone has their start, and this was where I got mine.
12006-09: Motorola RAZR v3
Didn't really want a phone, but this was a sleek and compact one to have. I knew substantially less about technology back then, so to get photos off the phone, I had to upload them to a Yahoo service which I would then visit on my PC. (This as opposed to plugging in a mini-USB cable.)
Cost: (provided by carrier)

Consumer Cellular

To save a bit of money, we later switched to a provider offering cheaper plans. Every bill was $45 except when overage charges hit, and when they did, they hit hard.
12009-10: Motorola W259 (rebadged W270)
Something simple to call and text on.
Cost: (provided by carrier)
12012-11: Motorola Defy Mini XT320 [512MB/Android 2.3]
Decided to give Android a shot and see what was up. These were SUPER tiny - I had to download alternative keyboards to be able to use it.
Cost: $132 ($10.16/mo)
12013-12: Samsung Captivate Glide l927 [8GB/1GB/Android 4.0]
Eventually got tired of the mininess of the Mini and upgraded to something full-size, with a slide-out keyboard for typing/texting.
Cost: $150 ($12.50/mo)
12014-12: Nokia Touch and Type X3-02.5
Promptly got sick of smartphones and their one-day battery life. Switched to something with a T9 keypad for a while.
Cost: $78 ($1.95/mo)

Ting Mobile

Then, we decided to give this tiered payment system* a try. It was still use more pay more (but not as much), but also use less pay less. Also, extremely helpful customer service.
* (phased out for new customers on 2020-11-17)
12018-03: Blu S1 [16GB/2GB/Android 7.0]
Switched back to Android to run Beermoney apps for low-effort free shit. Victim of a bloating battery.
Cost: $172 ($19.12/mo)
12018-10: Blu R2-4G [32GB/3GB/Android 7.0] (Auxiliary)
Loads of storage, huge RAM, and a battery that started bloating five months after purchase. Kept randomly turning on Bluetooth despite not being asked to?
Cost: $87
12019-01: Samsung Galaxy Prime J3-27A [16GB/1.5GB/Android 7.0]
Switched to a phone with a removable battery because I was tired of non-removable bloating batteries.
Cost: $136 ($5.92/mo)
12020-06*: Sony Xperia XZs [32GB/4GB/Android 7.1]
Switched to a phone with VoLTE so Ting would stop bugging me about not having one. The non-removable battery started to bloat two months later. Apparently it doesn't actually have VoLTE, so thanks for putting it on the 'List of phones with VoLTE support' article, Wikipedia editors!
* Remained unused until December
Cost: $163 ($16.30/mo)
12021-09: Samsung Galaxy A02s [32GB/2GB/Android 11]
Forced upgrade because T-Mobile shut off its pre-LTE networks. But, being able to switch to Ting's cheaper Flex plan means it'll pay for itself in six months.
Cost: $160

Paths Ahead

I'm considering traveling one of the following routes when the battery in that current Android smartphone begins to noticeably swell.
Paradigm shift (Smartwatch%)
Use an Apple Watch Ultra for all communication and payment needs for the next decade.
Unattainable due to requiring an iPhone to activate the device.
Switch sides
Pick up an iPhone SE 4 (or SE3 NOS) in 2-4 years, and use that for as long as feasible (until device failure or 5G shutdown).
🎵 Get loose, kid; go stupid 🎵
Downupgrade to an unsmartphone such as the Kyocera DuraXV or Sonim XP5 and find the cheapest plan possible to justify rounding-error usage of it.
Even Simpler
Decide being constantly reachable is incompatible with my personality, discontinue mobile phone service to save money, and switch to a pager plus home VoIP phone setup (~$13/mo cheaper). Delete all the accounts!!


12016-08: Fire HD 6 (Gen4) [16GB/1GB/Fire OS 5.7]
Perfect pocketable size, from the only generation with SlimPort video out. Cool as hell.
Cost: $90
12018-10: NeuTab i7 [8GB/1GB/Android 7.1]
Some cheap generic I got to try running money-making apps on. Turned on, connected to wifi, then the screen immediately stopped working.
Cost: $50
12018-12: Fire HD 8 (Gen8) [16GB/1.5GB/Fire OS 7.3]
A BeerMoney buy that I ran autosurfing websites on, until I got tired of it randomly turning off its wifi antennas.
Cost: $60
12022-12: Kindle Paperwhite 5 SE (Gen11) [32GB/512MB]
Got it on sale for Black Friday after hearing good things. Why not. Really should try reading more books anyway.
Cost: $129 (32% off)

(Talk only if you can improve on the silence.)

Favorite Foods

I am a vegetable hater and can't stand the taste and texture of most anything in that entire me-forsaken food group, with the exception of potatoes and peppers. Ketchup is fine, but tomatoes otherwise suck completely. Onions and mushrooms are good in powder form, but completely ruin a meal when diced or sliced. Lettuce, pickles, and olives belong in the trash. Carrots, peas, and green beans deserve to be extinct. Any feedback about this topic will be immediately discarded.

(Eat right, exercise, and die anyway.)
