Well, the person I was communicating with on ebay to have more information about a motherboard just stopped talking to me, guess they sold it before I could get it. Pretty much a good thing since I went too fast and should wait until feb to be able to afford it without going under. I just moved and that's pretty expensive, and I will have my first electricity and internet bills that will include 2 months since they work on pro-rata rates...

Only a matter of time before this gets split off into a new topic that promptly dies.

It's not my fault no one consistently pays attention to any other thread :P Also, I think people get tired of brick walls arguing with each other.

 

As for the arguments, things would probably be more productive/interesting if all sides could try approaching a subject with the mindset of "other cultures have different customs and values, and this is an opportunity to learn how another culture works and why, and what problems they see with their own system" for a change. Also, wow, I'm one of those people I hated so much when I was a child :lol:

 

Don't worry, just having a bit of a flower power moment.

 

 

I'm sure the comedic world has covered the topic ad nauseum, suffice it to say that today I have renewed my hatred of Christmas tree lights. Don't get me wrong, I very much appreciate the result, but trying to work with a string of lights you didn't buy yesterday is just an exercise in frustration.

Had a DC/AC fundamentals test today. 99% sure I knocked it out of the park. Had to build a series parallel combination circuit with 4 reistors and a 12 volt power supply. Really love the major I'm doing this time around.

One of my players goes out of his way to insert his character into the backstory of one of the major NPCs, to the point of retconning his own character's background to make him even more artificially important to what he thinks the plot is about.

 

He then proceeds to explode at some of the other players for wanting to follow up on the plot hooks they've been presented with, arguing that his character could easily kill the character who's most invested in the current plot if they don't go his way. He gives up when he finds out that the others are (justifiably) not okay with this, instead of... you know, explaining anything. Shortly after he starts ranting privately to me about how them caring about the plot is ruining the game for him, and they're stupid for caring about the story over the gameplay... The story that he *knows* I'm super invested in, after having invested a fair portion of my free time in the last few months on it. Meanwhile, the gameplay was basically thrown together at the last minute.

 

It's like... does he really think I would agree with him? I love that they're going out and doing these crazy unexpected things, and he's basically spent the whole time belittling them for it.

With concession made that each person has their own idea of what is important to this type of game, my gut reaction is to say your friend is doing it wrong :P

 

The group I play with is all about the story, to the point that we rotate as DM so that we can all participate in each other's stories, and also craft our own (we set our game in space, so there is lots of room for us to set up our own stories without them clashing with each other).

I think this was supposed to be somewhat serious but I was laughing out loud at most of them-- I love how they all look like hipsters :lol: my favorite one is Elvis

 

I think that was the point. What they'd look like with modern style, rather than what people of their rank/status/contribution looks like today.

Woke up around 8:00 am. Went to take out my chihuahua... and heard running water. There shouldn't have been any running water. I checked throughout the house, nope, no running water. Checked the outside water faucets, nope, no running water.

 

Then I checked the carport utility closet. Water pumping out of the top of the water heater. Bullshit. There were some construction dudes down the street and one of them helped turn off the water to the house (valve was stuck, didn't have the strength or tools).

 

Called the local water company before then, though. Let slip the account holder (my mom) was deceased, so it's more important the account switches from my mom to me. They'll require a deposit, too, I bet, stupid corporate spastics, despite the bill being paid on time on my part (since she's been deceased over a year now). Oh, and they'll try and have someone turn off the water in the mean time. Lucky for construction workers!

 

Landlord is going to be out here shortly, I hope. Probably wasted upwards of ~500 gallons overnight. Ugh.

She managed to have a new water heater installed. Had hot water by 5:00 pm. Going to have to clean up soaked stuff tomorrow.

Good catch. At least it's not in your main basement (depending on what your drainage is like down there), and lucky about the construction workers. I have to applaud how dedicated your water company seems to be to not caring too. That's pretty classy.

 

It seems to be a thing water heaters do from time to time. My basement got turned into a full on sauna last year after the pressure safety valve decided to phone it in (fail).

I've only had my water heater explode once thankfully. And the only thing ruined was my mom's collection of text books that were out of date anyway.

 

Got off work. Drove to bar. Drinking alone because all day all I thought about was quitting but I need to secure references before I just bail. I can't wait to just not work here anymore. I'll figure out the rest later. I just can't cater anymore. 7 years too many

Luckily we don't have a basement. Basements are scary, and I have enough to worry about. To be honest, my ideal house (negating my fears and stuff) would have to be built like a containment wall for a nuclear power station. Would also have to be incredibly fire resistant, like a submarine or modern seafaring ship. And would have to have a faraday cage sort of deal to negate doppler tools. In short, a multi-million dollar fort, ha.

 

Anyway, I spent the last 6 hours watching the final 7 episodes of Doctor Who with my brother. Spoilers:

 

 

It was a joke between my brother and I that Clara would die in an infinite loop when we heard this season was her last. My brother especially wasn't too fond of her, though I think she's better than Rose/Martha/Donna. Anyway, turns out the Doctor gets stuck in a 4.5 billion year death loop. Well then, right idea, wrong person.

 

I also annoyed my brother by guessing quite a few plot points in advance. Pegged Clara as a Zygon in episode 7 when she was curiously specific about the Zygon pesticide. Figured the hand at the beginning of episode 11 was the Doctor's when the Doctor teleported in and that he was in some loop (later supposed it was the confession dial because of the shape of the castle). Nothing too outstanding or clever, but a bit funny all said and done.

 

 

edit: well the post shouldn't suck now.
