PhD experience differs a lot between subjects and countries and whatnot. Down here, you generally live pretty well on the grants. And doctorate scholarships. And doing it in IT or genetics or some engineering field pays a lot.

Work, work, work all the time.

 

I barely got paid 14,000 EUR a year to do my PhD in the UK. That is the flat rate all-across the UK, regardless of subject. You might get a few Ks more if you are lucky.

Damn, even we get more than that... As much as I've heard, it starts at about 18K Euros a year and it goes way up, depending on subject/topic.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Intriguing that Erin redirects to Aaron. How topical

I'd change all my stuff to Erin Bolyard but it would be a royal pain in the ass. In the future...

 

Erin is gender-neutral. It's also completely unrelated in origin to Aaron. I think that's cool.

 

But if I tell people my name, I can say "A-aron" and everyone gets it lol.

 

also this hurricane is making me really nervous. I've been through a few Category 4s and a Category 5 (Andrew) living in Florida but Floridians are used to hurricanes. But North Carolina falls the [bleep] apart at 5 inches of rain or some snow or wind so yeah.

really? I don't think I've ever met a male erin before. >_> Every erin I've ever met is female and aaron is male. its origin might be gender-netural, or maybe it still is in other parts of the world, but in the US it's definitely a girl's name in the modern era IMO

Why does it strike me as weird to know your real names? Like when twitch streamers get called by their real name, it's strange. I watch a lot of Firebat and someome recently called him James and so was like "nah, his name is firebat"

If I'd had my real first name here, you'd get my family name on first google searches first page. Bad parts of having a unique name...

I don't normally use peoples real names (unless that was how I was introduced to them), and generally insist on people using my handle even if they know my real name. I guess it's a compartmentalisation thing. When I am online, I expect to hear my handle; it's what I respond to. When I'm not online, I expect to hear my given name.

 

16 GB of RAM here too. I can boost that to 24 GB (2x8 + 2x4) if I need more memory at the expense of speed, but it's never come up. I'm still rocking an i5-4670k, which uses relatively cheap DDR3 RAM. I got a lovely pair of sticks with 8ms CAS @ 1600mhz.

 

Also, scandinavian languages having Germanic roots makes sense now that I think about it (that at least one of the languages uses the letter thorn would be a good clue). Had a friend spend a year in Iceland, and she picked up a bit of the language while she was there. English speaker like I am, though with a radically different accent (she spent a few years in Australia growing up, be we don't hold it against her).

I'm no expert but mixing memory sticks in a 2×8 + 2x4 set would cause tremendous issues, wouldn't it?

I wanted to mention this a while ago, but it completely slipped my mind. I don't know how many of you remember TheUberElite. Used to be pretty active on the RS side here. Was browsing some PoE streamers a while back and stumbled upon him again. He's fairly popular too. I've seen his stream hit 400-500 viewers at certain times. And just like he was in RS, he's pretty good at the game.

I released another alpha of ItsyRealm.

 

If you're masochistic you can try it here. I'm working on a port to Web but I'm not using vanilla Love2D so that complicates things...

If you try it let me know what you think. :D

 

It's also cool to see something new on my "latest update" section on my website. For the last ... couple years ... it's been Algae Canvas lol.
