I've never damaged a phone screen ever. In this case the power button is broken so that it constantly turns on and off. I'm just going to get the same phone again (used). 120 US instead of 500+ for a new phone

Any way you could open it up and fix it? A laptop I had was having an issue with the button and I just opened it and managed to fix the mechanism controlling it. I don't know if phones are so amenable to tinkering though...

I'd have to either replace the motherboard, or replace the power button on the motherboard. Both technically possible, but expensive/time consuming enough that buying a new phone makes more sense to me.

 

I do actually have my old one working now, I took out the external power button and manipulate the switch with a paperclip. Not a long term solution...

(Few pages back...)

 

 

 

Oh, I wrote an API for stuff like that a long long time ago. It's definitely a pain in the ass. The worst part is keeping it updated

That's why I extract it from the game!

 

The Make-X menu has the requirements, and I built a tool to parse that interface using my GPD thingy. So I go through each item in the Make-X menu, dump the results to a file that looks like this:

ITEM 210.000000 Shark
REQUIRE 80 Cooking Level
REQUIRE 1 RuneScape Member
INPUT 1 Raw shark
...and so import it into using my tool, Plato:

Explanation: the 'cooking.range' action produces 1 'Shark' and 210 'Cooking' [xp], takes an input of 1 'Raw shark'. It also requires 1986068 'Cooking' [xp] (it makes the goal planner simpler to implement if I store skill requirements as XP, so it can improve the plan as it unlocks things from leveling up).

That's so cool

What kind of phone is it? 

 

Unfortunately I'm a bit of a sheep who upgrades every two years. Would probably save money just buying a durable phone and keeping it.

Today I played some League of Legends ranked flex and lost a bit... but I think I'm getting back into the swing of things again as I've hard-carried some games:

12/0/4 Shyvana

18/4/7 Shyvana
20/5 /10 Vi

 

I need to be more consistent again though... It used to be super rare for me to get a negative KDA, but now it seems to be much more common -.-...

Tommorow is my first day at the job. I still got school until Dec 8th. Hope I dont [bleep] anything up and fail on my final semester, but if it all goes well I'll be working on this contract with NASA for 6 months and possibly may lead to a full time hire after.

 

All in all for having a 2.5 GPA everything went better than expected :lol:

Today I'm off during the day and working at night. Overtime stupidly but I doubt anything will occur.

So I'm going to be going to my local community college come January...

 

I was in a pickle because I had transcripts, but 1) They were from a home school 2) The home school administrator is deceased 3) The transcripts were not notarized. But I was able to talk to the Admissions Director, and with some supporting documents (letter from the state, home school registration, and death certificate), they accepted the transcripts.

 

Had to take placement testing (gosh it's been over 7 year since I've even looked at a polynomial, lol), but it appears I passed everything there. Not entirely sure, I doubt I screwed up the essay portion (the only part that couldn't automatically be graded) enough to undo the other results. Going to touch up on some of the more complex math stuff on my own in the next couple months anyway, though. That was a painful experience.

 

On top of the other errands, I was busy from 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM. Single break for dinner. Didn't even have lunch. Ugh.

 

Tomorrow will be a little better. Just have to go up and register for classes and get a haircut.

Been getting kinda bored sitting at home doing nothing. I want to work again, but the market has changed and i don't think i'll be as lucky getting the same kind of job i had before. I'm thinking about checking out life guarding at one of the hotels. It's going to be huge cut in pay, like 600% cut, but i think it could be really fun.

I'm crossing my fingers I get accepted into the masters program I want. 

 

So i got my hair cut today. Felt a bit strange going short after having it long for such a long time. Before and after. I think it looks a lot better now.

So i've been playing Smite on PC for a while now, ever since i got my new PC. I think i'm finally getting used to using a mouse and keyboard. Now that's no longer the issue. Smite on Console has a reputation for being full of "shitters", ie. people who have no thumbs, ie. people who are just plain awful at the game. My experience has been the complete opposite so far. Holy crap do i get teamed up with some bad players. People who just don't seem to understand the core mechanics of a MOBA, or at the very least Smite. I'm not sure if Smite is the exact same in compared to Dota/LoL, but i know it's similar at least. Soon as i get enough money together to buy another monitor, i think i'm heading back to Console when it comes to Smite.

People are building snowmen back home...

 

First proper snow usually doesn't come already in October, but well, what can you do.

 

 

Been all rain and shitty weather on this side of the globe. Should be starting with the nice weather, but so far been barely scratching 20 degrees celsius.

Worked 70,5 hours last week, this week got just 56, though this week also got pretty much two paid days off.

 

Gonna throw some discs and getting motorcycle practical licence test done on Saturday, hope to be on a saddle by Monday.

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

It hit at least 21 C yesterday (70 for americans), and the humidity must have been near 100%. Makes me wonder if we're getting a super mild winter this year, or is it going to go the other way, and we're going to get all the cold and precipitation we've not gotten for the last 4-6 months as a winter wonder bonus upgrade.
