    So apparently I'm the only person in the class to understand that midnight Tuesday is 1 minute after 23:59 Monday. Not 1 minute after 23:59 Tuesday. Unfortunately this is a group assignment, so we're losing 5%. Oh, and use case diagrams make no sense with only 1 actor. For a brief period same-sex marriage was legal in the ACT here in Aus. Then it was made illegal again. While it was legal everything was fine, making it illegal again turned the country to shit. In Aus you don't start paying your debt until you're making over 40k/year. It's also all handled by the government (for now at least, anyway) As an introvert, I disagree.

    Took my car in to replace the brakes, and for a checkup at lunchtime. At 5pm they told me it was ready, but as they were closing I'd have to wait until tomorrow to pick it up. Which is good because uni starts on Monday. They also hammered the exhaust due to a previous owner got a wrong part welded in which caused the exhaust to start banging into the car, but I still need to get it replaced. Which will be after I've spoken to some exhaust specialist we deliver to. Is that really going to stop you? Translated: 90s night at Philly bar. Struggling to type this due to auto correct. I'm old as [bleep], aka 22. Yay me. City wife (ale) were $5 each, whiskey sour were $3 each. Got egged in 7/11 parking lot. I lol'd. Pretty decent birthday night. Tomorrow (my actual birthday) is going to suck. But it sure beats being 20. Turning 21 was good though. I'll give it (22nd birthday) an 8/10. I'd do it Again. #attempatseeminghip This stuff is relatively tame though.

    I like the temp to be around 15. I'll work with C and F on that one, but not K.
  7. Oh great one, teach me your organisational skills. Mines a big mess of everything thrown in.

    Yeah... I don't think they understand scientists. It's like when people talk about alternative medicine. If it was proven to work it'd be called medicine, and sold by companies. If they can sell you bottled water from your local municipal supply for a few dollars per bottle (I'm on water tank and if it runs out it's $100 for a truck to deliver 20,000L), they can sell you healing herbs for an arm and a leg. I mean, if you could prove cannabis to be profitable for pharmaceutical companies, they'd be selling that alongside their current medicines. That's not true. If you're taking the view that pharmaceutical companies are entirely motivated by money and not by saving lives, then the medicine that's going to cost more is going to be the one they promote. It'd be tough to sell fish oil at the same price as a round of chemotherapy (that's not a real example, but from what my dad has told me, a lot of alternative medicine cancer cures are around that price range). The problem is, these are things that already have established pricing, and those prices just don't compare to the prices of current medicines. With your water example, you're not necessarily paying for the extra water, you're paying for the societal damage when you use a lot more water than the expected per household allotment, since water is kind of a precious commodity nowadays. Edit: This is definitely not a view I entirely share, since I don't believe that pharmaceutical companies are entirely motivated by greed, but that's the gist of the argument anyway. I'm not saying they're entirely motivated by money, but once the company gets large that becomes the main focus, were it no already. Being the first, if not only, big player to be selling working 'alternative medicine' would put them on a massive playing field with what would be a completely untapped market. From what I've seen alternative medicine going for, even at the established price they'd be making huge profits. Added on to that, they could provide you with cancer-curing fish oil, with 3x the ingredient that fights cancer, at only 10x the price! The patented formula makes it more powerful than taking 10x the fish oil, so at the end of the day you're coming out ahead. Oh, I don't know about your country, but in mine pharmaceutical companies like to prey on new doctors giving them medicine cheap or free, so that as soon as they see them working, they'll only recommend that brand, even if there could be a better brand out there. They can even not allow for brand substitutions.

    Finally got my desk organised and looking pretty. Now to see how long I can keep it this way. Best guess is until my gf is next over. I know the feeling man. Yeah...

    Had my friend's funeral on Wed. His mum was pretty much balling her eyes out whenever she wasn't speaking. His dad seemed fine until he spoke, his hands were shaking, but then he calmed down a bit. When the coffin was driven off, his dad just broke down. It was the saddest thing I've witnessed, everyone was crying, and I couldn't even force myself to. It just really hit me hard. It's one thing when I see people feeling something I'm struggling to, it's just plain awful that when I can't imitate it. Over the weekend, however, I helped move things between two rooms, including a piano, which got stuck on carpet at one point and the other person had to vault the keys to be able to help get it unstuck, as it was in a doorway at the time. Next time it needs to be moved, I plan on being in a different country. Actually, it'd be battery he'd be arrested for, assault is the threat of violence, battery is once physical contact occurs. Depending on his visa, it could be a deportable offence, too. Unless you're running a server, don't buy a WD Black, or Red (the quieter Black). Get a Blue. Hitachi also seem to be good with failures, but their HD business seems to have been recently purchased by WD anyway. Seagate are basically the consumer HDD kings with their Barracuda line, just don't go with them for servers.

    I'm really starting to come to grips with the fact that my friend is dead. It sucks so much. He laid dead in a ditch for 2 month before being found, and had to be identified by his dental records. I wish I was on good enough terms with the cops here to invite them to a party. Every year cops show up to the xmas party for my dad's family. I mean, they're invited and family, but still. One of them is the only cop in his town, so not only do the cops show up, but the entire police force for one town is there. Should invite them to my birthday this year.

    So they had a big manhunt for a friend of mine yesterday who has been missing since November. They found skeletal remains near where he was last seen, and a jumper that may have been the one he was last seen wearing. I've been told his older sister made a RIP page/group for him today, so it seems that he's dead. They're doing a post mortem on the body tomorrow. He was my best friend for a few years, and I feel nothing.

    Got a laptop for free, currently awaiting the parts to fix it to arrive. I hope they arrive on Friday, and not Monday. It's great because the parts cost $86 delivered. The laptop itsefl (I forget which one) is over $500 used. *pats on head* Welcome to adulthood. If you're in a country that allows drinking you can now/continue drinking in pubs and buying drinks.
  14. With the exception of melee the new system makes sense and is a bette guide, especially when coupled with EoC. Because when it comes to PvP, there's nothing that prayer offers past level 71 that gives any decent advatage. Soul split will see you die faster as to match the damage reduction of protect or deflect you need to be hitting 5x as much as you're being hit, and turmoil is only a 2% boost over piety, while draining your ppoints faster. Summoning is also immediately obvious by the familiar following them. Why it is part of the combat formula I'll never understand.

    If he 'gets bored of it' then he's actually found it and is trying to unsee it. If he goes through the whole HDD, there was nothing on it. If he suddenly stops and hides away in his room, there's nothing with you in it.

    Fiend!! You didn't even tell me! I would have saved up to visit Andy and Hiroki. >:( Going to Brisbane for a holiday is really expensive, don't think I could do it often. I do have to take Lerisa with me next time, but you can come along too.

    Hey guys, it's been a while, I kind of got caught up with xmas/NYE, went on a holiday in early Jan, and have been pretty sick recently. Found out I've gotten in to uni for IT, but when I tried accepting the offer it tells me I have a debt to pay for first, for the amount of "8.620". Here in Aus, a period is used as the seperator between dollars and cents, but the 0 is throwing me off. I have to call up tomorrow about it, and despite having no clue why I owe the uni money, I really hope it's only for $8.62, and not $8,620. Although due to being sick and a casual, I can't pay either debts right now as I literally have no money whatsoever. For my holiday I went to Brisbane, and met some pretty oldschool OTers, Da_Latios, and Maeror_Meror. If you're a TIFfer in Brisbane, I'm sorry I didn't meet up with you, but either you didn't tell me you were in Brisbane, or your name was Iamdan and nobody has seen you in a while. One year we need to hang out for NYE. No! Bad! Down Kalphite! Bad! Never use adblock plus. They've sold out. If you're using Firefox, use Adblock Edge, and Self Destructing Cookies while you're at it. If you're on Chrome, switch to FIrefox, you can get FXChrome + Moveable Firefox Button and it basically makes FF look the same as Chrome if you must have the look. If you won't switch (gods know why) use Adblock. Buy a safe. You really need to start talking to everyone who gives them money, and tell them to stop it, they're enabling him, and as long as people are handing him money, he won't work for a minute. Good on you for standing up to him thought, I wish I could do the same for my girlfriend's mother (a barely functioning alcoholic who doesn't care how her actions affect others, and treats me like shit because I'm only in my 20s). Her stepdad is bad too, but not as bad as her mother. Unfortunately, last time I didn't take her shit, I couldn't visit my gf at her house for nearly a year. I can't wait until my girlfriend can afford to move out, because I'm struggling to not beat them up for the mental abuse I've seen them inflict on her.

    Last I heard it was about 5,000 Dogecoin for $1US. 1BTC is currently $933, so that's around 4,665,000 Dogecoin per BTC. If it hits an exchange you're golden. If you're not after something so risky, or want something to hoard in addition to Dogecoin, I'd recommend litecoin, feathercoin and worldcoin.

    Been thinking about getting one since my phone has issues with reception. I could sell it used for nearly the price of a new N5.

    Today I couldn't walk 4 miles in 40 days. Which doesn't make much sense.

    Went paintballing today, let's just say I'm covered in welts. My left leg is all but useless, and breathing is painful due to a few neck shots. The biggest welt is on my neck, too. Definitely going back again though, once moving stop hurting so much. SwiftKey, it's magic.

    So for the first time in like a decade, one of our trucks woke me up when it was leaving. Needless to say it's 4 hours before I wanted to get up, and I'm not a happy chappy. A few years back my computer broke, I had ~200 bitcoins on it. Forgot to get the wallet, and so when I found out the other day they were a few hundred each, I was mighty sad. I'm actually no longer scared of society possibly turning out like Idiocrocy, I'm now firmly decided that it will become it. Really? With the advancements made with keyboard apps in Android, I never worry about gibberish, ever. Only words that don't make sense together. Like "Duck this shot is confusing.".
  24. No it's not. You're also assuming that if we use a drug once to do something, we have to do it every time to get enjoyment out of it. We don't. I've used recreational drugs for various reasons before, most of the time I don't. You're treating drug use like the meal, when in fact it is seasoning intended to enhance the flavour of the meal that is an activity. Sure, we don't need alcohol, but it does enhance the fun when you're a bit intoxicated. On top of that, alcohol allows your mind to function uninhibited, leading to some of the most deep and meaningful conversations I've ever had. Even if I'm sober myself. Not saying I enjoy clubs, I'm the only one of my friends who prefers to just go to a pub where we can have some drinks, maybe a nice meal, and play pool while talking about anything the alcohol guides us to. I could do that without the alcohol, but as an introvert I find I tend to talk a lot less, and am less likely to try and start a conversation or change topics to something else.

    Been playing Rogue Legacy for the past few hours, it's totally worth buying. I just need to get my PS3 controller working properly with Linux. In your situation I would refuse to be the one to pay the fine. If I say I'm not right to drive and you still demand me to drive, you're asking me to risk my life, my sisters life, and a potentially written off car, then ultimately you're the one paying when something goes wrong. I'm going paintballing with some mates on Sunday. Going to be great. That doesn't work at my place, I've got a single bed, and so only one of us get to use it or we both end up sleeping badly. My girlfriend is actually asleep at mine right now, I'm heaps tired but waiting for her to get up so I can get some sleep without causing even more damage to my spine. The worst of it is my mum will come and wake me up if I'm still asleep at lunch time. So when I get woken up I'm going to be in a sour mood for the day, which is really bad when I have work I need to do. At her place, it's great. Double bed so we can just sleep the day away.
