Is this the thread about hating on fireworks? If so, I'm in. I hate it. Hate hate hate. Not the pretty, colorful stuff they shoot into the air at new years eve, but the stuff that only goes BANG and that's it. It just goes on and on and on and on all day. I'm going crazy.

Now I know this is 2015, and many of you have certain expectations. Well, I'm sorry to be such a stick-in-the-mud so soon into the new year, but I'm gonna have to tell you the cold, harsh truth. And even though you'll be really bummed and curse my name for a while, ultimately it'll make you a better person.

And here's the horrible, unfortunate truth:

Depends on your motives.
The first one is the most nausea-inducing. The second one is the most entrancing.. and the third one looks the most like eyes that change colors.

Is not leaving feedback a common thing on eBay now? I've been selling my collection and I've had three out of 30 sales leave feedback.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: Izret101 on January 25, 2015, 05:05:06 PM
I think i got feedback about 2/3rds of the time overall

Seemed to be increasing last time i sold though.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: SirPsycho on January 25, 2015, 06:00:56 PM
For me it comes in waves. A string of nothing, then a string of good feedback.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: techwizard on January 25, 2015, 09:14:45 PM
a lot of times i don't leave feedback right away, even after receiving the item...i'm bad that way. but i get to it eventually, remember the system leaves you the option for quite a long time (not sure how long exactly) so those who haven't left any yet might still do it later.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: Barracuda on January 26, 2015, 10:30:18 AM
I'm not to worried about receiving feedback. I mean no feedback is technically good feedback. I haven't bought or sold anything on there for 3 years so I was hoping for a little more since I haven't used the account in so long.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on January 26, 2015, 06:15:23 PM
It used to do positive feedback automatically after 90 days if you didn't leave feedback...

A few months ago my son sent a letter to my cousin/his students. My cousin/his students sent letters back. Might make a thread with some pics soonish.

I also got a little box of Kit Kats that are apparently exclusive to Shikoku
Did a quick search and turned this up for those interested:

if any of you are also headed out for Amiibo wave 3 tomorrow. Good luck. I am heading out in a few hours to get to Target before they open to see if I can get lucky with a Mega Man or Sonic before they are gone.

For, like, the ten millionth time.


He changed it to this:

I recognized that as some famous rock star.

Someone very famous.

It's really kinda weird to do this, something straight outta Lynwood some might say. I'll admit, it is pretty funny for Zag to perform this way, it's as dangerous as running with scissors.



You can see him here at 21 seconds:

I don't think I've ever gotten this much attention over an avatar change before. Have you nothing better to do with your time, people? I'd tell you all to "get a life," but that'd be more than a little hypocritical of me.

What a coinkydink: I've bought and flipped four TI-83 Pluses in the last couple weeks, and picked up a fifth earlier today.

Never encountered a Silver-edition TI-83 Plus, though. Didja find a gold one yet?  ;)

You want these two? I know one has a bad screen, not sure about the other one.

So this weekend I saw this girl I haven't seen in years at the grocery store. I smile, get some smooth talking in, and part ways without too much thought after a bit of time and conversation. This is the 21st century after all, and I remember her name. I've been dabbling in Facebook again mostly to talk to the ladies, they all seem easy to contact after all. So I'm wanting to continue the conversation and run into a few hurdles.

I don't exactly remember how to spell her name, but its not a big deal, I'll look through her brother's page to find her. I spend about half an hour looking for her and come up empty. I mention it to a buddy I was with and he thinks he remembered that she deleted her profile.

A girl deleted her Facebook profile. I've found my white whale, and its time to go spearfishing.

Hey gents!

I did a big upgrade to my awoken warlock costume from Destiny.  New makeup, additional armor, vinyl pants, and new gauntlets really made a big difference in the overall look.  Now, if only the EL component would stop failing I would have an illuminated bond.  My hunter buddy is on the second build of his hunter, and it's amazeballs!  He's even collaborating with another artist for 3D printed weapons.

Immediately noticed the vinyl pants - that definitely cleaned up the look for me.
What kind of EL wire kit are you using? Those things tend to be fairly stable.

There is a fine wire poking out of the "rope" part, and all I need to do is solder it to the copper lead and it should be good again.

I dropped it and it completely separated.  It was wonky before.  My buddy was having some technical difficulties too.  His "Radiant Dance Machines" weren't illuminating either.

Do you think it's worth spending ~21 to repair a ripped-apart Toshiba Satellite L500-11V (http://www.toshiba.co.uk/discontinued-products/satellite-l500-11v/)?
It was thrown out in the rain by a next-door neighbour (I think he said it's because it wasn't charging) either late last year or earlier this year.
After drying it, it didn't work at all. Not surprising. :(

Today, I decided to try turning it on again and somehow, amazingly, it booted right up into an Ubuntu Live CD I put in there. :o
It's even charging!

I'd need to replace the keyboard bezel/palmrest, trackpad, screws, speakers, RAM cover and HDD caddy. I've already got a spare 80GB (not huge, I know...) hard drive I could put in there.
There may be more to replace, but that's all I can see so far. One broken thing I can't replace is one ram clip, which limits me to 2GB RAM max.
It's still much better than the Compaq Presario 2500 (with a HP NX9010 motherboard and no WI-FI) I currently have.

I might be SOL with this... Seems the keyboard connector may have lifted pads. Cheapest motherboard I found was ~60, much more than I'm willing to spend.

EDIT: Crap... I was going to attempt gluing the connector back down in hopes it still made connection, but the whole connector fell off with some of the pads... :'(

Yeah. I can still use it with a USB keyboard and mouse but that defeats the point of a laptop.
As for the trackpad, it's possible I might be able to repair it's connector... I might not even bother doing it now though.

The last time I sifted through my disorganized hoard of vidya stuff, it started off as a boring chore. But things got real interesting when I rediscovered stuff I almost forgot about. It's like an archaeological dig through your own recent past...

Megurine Luka - Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA

On a gaming note, there was a serious lack of import games available in the dealer's room.  The most I found were VNs and eroge.  I did get to play Project DIVA Arcade for the first time at a place called Round 1 Arcade.

Got stuck with my in-laws for an extra week last week thanks to a broken steering column in my vehicle, so not much gaming took place, and I also couldn't pick up the scanner like I wanted for the submission contest, but now that I am home, I will look over a few of the titles close to my computer and update a bit if they need it and will also look to get some playtime in soon.

One would almost think there was a conspiracy afoot to keep you from competing in the contest...

...though I can't imagine why anyone would wanna do that to such a fine, upstanding citizen of this wonderful community of extraordinary gentlemen...  :evilhappy:


I had everything carved into paths and stacks ready to be alphabetized and submitted too...with a house in my future in the next year, I am going to have to box it all back up and get it into storage for a move. Life has a way of things that I cannot understand...alas, I cannot control everything and must push forward. (It doesn't stop me from trying to control everything though)

And thank you, sir, for your words. If we are a community of extraordinary gentleman, I wonder which gentleman you think I would be, Mr. Gray. ;)

Every time I've seen that its because it was shot in portrait mode on a phone, so they need to do something to fill in the sides to make it fit your screen. The blurred part is just the video blown up/stretched out and lightened.

I really am dumb. I've associated Bic with pens and lighters for so long, I'd forgotten they do disposable razors as well. I was actually visualizing you trying your barber skills with a pen and lighter-- which would make for a rather entertaining YouTube video. So what are you waiting for? get on it already!

Oddly enough, I recalled Bic putting out a short-lived perfume line a couple decades back.

I understand going the shaved-head route as a way of coping with male pattern baldness. But if you can still grow a full head of hair, then just let it go, man. Flaunt it in front of your buddies who've gone the Patrick Stewart route in the 20+ years since you were in high school together. Announce to them that you had to increase your shampoo budget again this month, and then express how jealous you are that they don't have to deal with such financial hardships. Sure, you'll come off like a total @$$hole by doing this, but you know they'd do the same for you if the roles were reversed. That's what friends are for, you know.

And I'm gonna sound dumb once again, but... who the hell is Michael Berryman?

You can have some of our rain, I think its rained every day here for the last 2 or 3 weeks now. I probably should have bought a water tanker truck here, filled it with water and traded it for a boat out there.

Had to drive 45 minutes one way to do 3-5 minutes worth of work to finish a job so my boss could bill.

Nearly at my destination i clipped the rear quarter of a Prius at about 1/80th of a mile an hour. No gas just forward momentum you have when releasing the break.

Of course since it was a prius i didn't have a rear quarter but a wrap around bumper. And it was scratched to hell. The shitty old Kia hatchback i was driving has next to no damage. In fact it was so low impact i didn't even knock off or damage the reflector.

There goes 2+ weeks pay i'm sure...

i know shadow was working on something a while back but haven't heard anything in quite a while.

Wife sick + College puts a damper on things. I might have some time this weekend to add the chat window everyone was asking for, but we'll see.

Best mate passed away in the early hours of this morning, it seems so unreal.

It dosen't seem that long ago since we're bunking off school to play Moto-racer, tekken and twisted metal, blasting around on motocrossers and getting chased by the police for riding in an old quarry. Then there's been loads of top nights out with masses of drunken stupidity and pranks and then bang its all over.  The dopey bastard who's been my mate for 20 odd years and the devoted father to his 2 kids is just gone. 33 is no fucking age.

Hey everyone. Been a little off and on with the site lately. Not like I've posted a ton since I've been here, but it has sort of not been on my mind as of late.

WARNING: This post contains bummers and stuff that may make you sad, but too bad. It has to be said at this point.

On July 16, my family lost a very wonderful woman, my wife's aunt. She was going through some very tough times and just couldn't take it anymore. We all tried. We visited her. Talked with her. She had a new grandchild coming in September. Her son was going to be visiting from the military tomorrow. She took her own life. There was no indication that she would even try something like it.

Last night, we lost a member of RF Generation. Alfador (Dustin Foote) took his own life last night. I don't know all of the details of what he was going through as we only talked infrequently, but he was a good guy.

If you at any time feel that you need to talk to someone, please feel free to contact me. If you want/need my info, send me a PM and I'll happily let you know how to get me outside of the forums.

If you don't feel comfortable with that and you need help, call 1 (800) 273-8255 or visit http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/. Things really can get better. I was dealing with depression myself to the point where I was on medication. It takes time, but things can get better. I'll certainly be there to try to help if you need.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: slackur on August 02, 2015, 01:59:46 PM
My deep sympathy, Adam.  I'm sorry for your family's loss, as well as the loss of Mr. Foote.

And I champion and second your offer to be there for anyone in need. I'm also always open to PMs, texts, phone calls or even visits anytime. Please never let any need be unaddressed, as anyone who reads this does not have to be alone.


Title: Re: A Completely Unrelated Series of Thoughts... Part 7
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on August 02, 2015, 03:15:18 PM
Sorry to hear about Alfador. I talked with him a few months ago, and though things seemed a bit down he seemed to be doing okay. :'(

I'll also offer if anyone needs to chat. My roommate, after getting out of a desperate situation with her family, tried to commit suicide 3 times within the span of 4 months while living with us, and she eventually came to the decision to get rid of the medication causing those feelings, but it forced her to go through terrible withdrawal. Florida has what's referred to as the "Baker act" law, in which law enforcement officers will arrest someone they feel is a danger to themselves and transport them to a medical center for treatment. I've been forced to use it in the past, and knowing when and when not to call can be difficult.

...my family's been through a lot with it, but things have sorted themselves out now, and my roommate now has a healthy relationship with a new boyfriend for the first time in years and she's going to resume attending college this month. Things will eventually work out, but dealing with the feelings and situation can always be difficult, and it's only possible with a support network to back you up.

Hi all. I am back because I learned that Dustin (Alfador) left this world, and I am very sorry to hear that Adam and Ray had similar experiences.

In the RFG tradition, our community is strong. It's very sad that Dustin made a fierce goodbye, but he will never be forgotten. See you in the next life Dustin and Mike, neither of you forget that we will never forget, and we care about you both so deeply.

Sorry for your loss, bickman.  I've been fortunate to have never lost a family member to suicide, but I know many who have, and it's always hard to process.

If you're having trouble sleeping, exercise would be a good thing for you if it is not part of your regimen. Getting out for some fresh air and sunlight during the day will get your mood up too. It will definitely help with the sleep. Also, if you drink caffeine, cut that off around 5 PM. Sometimes a slight change in lifestyle is all you need. Good luck!

Running a pretty hot bath, using headphones and my phone's white noise generator, and/or getting into the dark and spending some alone time praying and meditating.  I've been known to do all three at once some nights/early mornings.

Thanks for the help guys. I finally fell asleep last night at around 11:30 PM EST. The exhaustion hit me like a hammer hits a whack-a-mole, and the moment I hit the bed, I was out. Woke up at 5:30 AM EST this morning, and I felt fairly good. :)

The other good thing is that we have family that are willing to help us out. I spent 2 days with my wife's grandpa tearing out floor, another half day cleaning up junk, then this weekend doing plumbing and putting in the new floor. Definitely learned a bit more about how my house is built.

Also, we took the opportunity to put in a water line for our fridge (haven't used the ice maker or water in it ever after living there for 8 years) as well as take out a shower that we never used that will become a pantry. So, some good came out of it, just sucks that it had to happen like it did. It's also good that it happened now instead of the hottest part of the summer or when it's snowing outside.

I'm now running Windows 10 build 10547. The previous build I was using (10130) was due to expire at 12:59AM my time.
I'm not a registered Windows Insider.

About an hour before it expired, I rushed to find an iso of 10166, but after downloading that, I realised that would probably expire at the same time as 10162 (read (http://www.pagestart.com/win10tpbuildexp041215.html)).
I then rushed to download an iso of 10547 when I only had about half an hour remaining.

Phew...

I'm not upgrading an existing Win7 or Win8 install. ;)

The build I was using wasn't downloading new builds automatically, so I had to use an ISO to upgrade it.
Even this build won't download new builds itself, but that's because I'm not a registered Windows Insider. I can't be bothered to register.

These are preview builds, btw...

"I forgot to send you a punch list..."
You forgot to send me an address too.
"So where are you now?"
My parents. (Picking up the check that he mailed last week instead of giving it to me since he was pissed that i didn't work Friday despite giving him well over a months notice.)
"You could have called me!"
I assumed you sent someone else.

Then he hung up on me.

20 minutes later he sent me over a list of items to repaint and the address and bitching about me not calling him.

Yay i get a day off!
Gave me time to take care of some stuff around the house and further contemplate quitting with or without another job lined up.

They'll also pay out my accrued paid time off afrer I'm given the chop... which won't be till mid-November. Fortunately, I have some connections that'll get me a new gig that's a fifteen-minute walk a my house. And the bew job offers bennies and full-time employment.

I have a relatively modest 300+ guides, myself. Got a fudge-ton of gaming mags, too.

So when you add a strategy guide database you'll have it covered between you then

Well, the RFG PTBs did finally cave to pressure to add toys-to-life game figures to the database. Maybe this could be the next big bone of contention?   :evilhappy:

...yeah, us and Zagnorch. He scanned in all of his already though for Extra Media.


I submitted mine during the last two submission pain contest periods for all NTSC and/or PC/Mac game platforms they were on, as well as "Greatest Hits," store-exclusive editions, Game-of-the-Year and other re-releases. For example, I submitted an image of my hardcover Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for 20+ versions of the games. There were 4 different releases each for PS3, PS4, 360, and X-Bone for goodness sakes. A really cheap way to rack up big points for the contest, but it was within the rules, and I was playing to win, so why not go for it. 'Course, those rules could change at any time... hmmm...

Hey, speaking of winning contests: has my ringer shirt shipped yet?  ;)

So i had a couple weeks of crazy hours.
I was paid exactly zero hours of OT. And i was back charged for 3 brushes that i charged to the business acct since mine were destroyed when forced to use shellac and oil.

Who the hell could actually play this thing??

(http://www.edroman.com/featured/images/slash.gif)



This whole post is probably TMI but since I spend a bit of time watching all manner of guitar videos on youtube.....



There is this video of a four neck guitar, the guy playing is a well known guitar guy, plays a lot of 2-neck guitars. This particular video is short and awful:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOjHhJd70f4





There is this one that doesn't show much playing and is really more of a comedy show but you can see a 6 neck guitar:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YgngXL7U1I




Cheap Trick famously used a 5 neck guitar, he actually plays it but not every neck in this video of Surrender:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eki1VQ6ddPU





A video I just found, looking up these others, of 8 people playing every neck of an 8 necked guitar:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w37MSOnRhhA





Here is one that is actually musically gratifying if you made it this far. This is more of a classical play style and one guy is playing both necks at the same time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qlFPAb3fpU



The guitar in the fist video is kind of an outlier as every neck seems to be the same, it's just something to look crazy and fling around in a stage show. Generally, multi neck guitars are for having different setups for each neck. Different strings, pickups, tunings, maybe one is a bass or one is fretless, stuff like that. Like the N64 controller, most people don't use it quite as awkwardly in practice as it seems at first glance. Most of the time when I see them people are using them either like the guy in the last video or like the guy in the Cheap Trick song where he plays one for part of the song and another for the chorus or something.









So i had a couple weeks of crazy hours.
I was paid exactly zero hours of OT. And i was back charged for 3 brushes that i charged to the business acct since mine were destroyed when forced to use shellac and oil.
Your job always sounds like so much fun.

Yeah, for the most part I've seen the two-neck guitar mostly be just acoustic / electric and bass in one guitar.

sooo.... it's Friday night and my gf wants me to visit for the weekend.  Its also her RPG game night, so I needed to keep myself entertained while they game.  I packed along half of my living room to play Destiny.  TV, PS4, Laptop w/ mouse, Astro headset.  I have everything set up across a queen-size bed and it looks like a scene from hoarders.


...and I can't connect to the wifi

Actually, I helped clean out the store's receiving area and offices. I put aside everything I desired before it hit the shop floor for the customers to buy. I also bought the last three shopping cartloads of the store's groceries, which was mostly bottled water, energy drinks, meal-replacement bars, vitamin supplements, and... powdered baby formula. They just put what was left into three carts, and asked $20 for each cartload. BTW If anybody needs any St. John's wort or saw palmetto tablets, throw me a PM and we'll get a deal goin'...

So on a hunch i bought a lead test kit after work today. Turns out i had been sanding lead paint for half a day without proper protection! Yaaaay!

Upon calling and complaining i was told someone else could be sent but i could "kiss my job good bye"

I say "K" and hung up.

Immediately got texts back peddling.

I can safely assume that as soon as there is the ability to let one person go i will be that person. Unless of course i get hired elsewhere and no call no show.

Lead poisoning, huh? That would explain quite a few things.  :P

On a more serious note: just about every professional house painter I've met who's been in the business a least a decade is whacked out to some degree. Some are barely able to talk coherently, and a few are full-blown alcoholics. I wonder if the whole lead-based-paint thing has a little something to do with that? Well, aside from all the other chemical shizznit in house paint that they're exposed to every day...

{broad generalization}
It seems like general rule of thumb is trade workers are/were/become alcoholics or drug addicts. When i was in the union i wouldn't doubt if i was the only guy who could piss clean at the drop of a hat.
{/broad generalization}

As for the materials used being poisonous... Pretty much everything is.
I've sent out pics of some of the more dangerous stuff for laughs. Tynstar has gotten a few. Pretty much everything causes organ/nervous system damage and should be used in well ventilated areas and not come into prolonged and/or direct contact with you.

I got a kick out of the last time i used 0 VOC precat epoxy.
Something like 52% of the mixture was exempt from VOC laws. But it still had that "green" label slapped on the can.

Shoulda put up some real money on a double quarter-pounder with cheese. It's the only Mickey D's burger I really care for. I get a hankering for one a few times a year.

In other news: It's been close to 2 weeks since my job interview, and my would-be employers are still waiting for the results of my background check. I voiced this concern to a friend who works there, and he told me that there are four people who applied before me who are still waiting for their background checks to be completed.

I just fixed the buttons on a cordless phone. :slick:
The buttons to answer and end calls were very unresponsive and have been for probably over a year. You had to jam them in as hard as possible to get them to work.

It turns out that there was a sticky substance on the underside of the keypad, mostly gooped up directly on the contacts for those buttons.
Looking it up now, it's apparently silicone oil: http://www.michaelshell.org/gadgetsandfixes/keypadsiliconeoil.html
I cleaned the keypad and now it's working much better. :D

Mine over last 10+ years
Sentra GXE (Tboned) 04? - 06
Grand Prix GT (Engine seized after many years of faithful service and cross country driving I think i managed to put over 150k miles on it) 7/7/06-13ish
Park Ave (Ebrake seized. Shortly after repair brake lines blew & battery was corroded to leads) Got it just before Too Many Games 2013 died a few months later
Cavalier Coupe (not worth repairing) 2013 - Dec 2015
Escape V6 (Current) Dec 2015 - FUTURE

Hers:
Neon (antifreeze and oil mixing somehow? I don't automotive knowledge.)
Gulf (Exhaust leak. Near death experience. Barriers now in place on that stretch of highway. I saved lives.)
Alero (Could have owned a brand new car with what she spent on repairs)
Spectra (See Alero brackets. Current)

Most of the vehicles borrowed by us while inbetween cars:
Monte Carlo SS
LeBaron rag top
Alero (she eventually purchased)
Grand Am - A COMPLETE FUCKING LETDOWN AFTER OWNING A GRAND PRIX
BMW sporty coupe something
Olds 88
Volvo luxury something
Big Ass Work Van - Surprising power.

I ordered something very expensive at a GameStop Store using they're Site-to-Home In-Store Option, and after about a week, the Tracking Number still doesn't work at all, and on the phone, they told me USPS would be handing it off to UPS for Delivery, which I know is a lie, as I have two family members in the USPS who say that can't/won't happen. Starting to get suspicious of this whole thing.

In case it helps, I successfully changed mine in November. It's a 110px by 110px 11.5 KB PNG.

It is the right size, since I literally right clicked and saved my Egbert Satan Pope as a PNG as it already was on the forum. My new avatar wasn't even resized, it was much bigger than 110x110 and the system seemed to just auto-resize it.

Um... I was just kidding around, guys. I'm fully capable of changing my ava without any problems.

On a more serious note: has anyone here bought some quick-picks for tonight's $1.5 Billion (with a B) PowerBall multi-state lottery pull? Although the odds of winning it are laughably remote, I figured what the hell. I bought five quick-picks at my fave 7-11, natch. The clerk told me that there were a few people who came in earlier and bought $300 to $400 worth of quick-picks. Is that crazy or what?

It is insane. I didn't think it was possible for a lotto to jump 600 million between drawings, but that is exactly what happens when so many people buy so many tickets. People that normally play are going nuts buying 20-100 picks at a time, and people that do not normally play, (Myself included), are buying a few picks.

Hell, so many people I know have "lotto agreements" with me, my chances of getting something out of this have to be down to about 1 in a million instead of 1 in 292 million. Ha ha

A lot of them do that, I've seen them start posting a year or two after registering. That's why I'll generally check the members who have a birthday today, they usually change their birthday to the day they start spamming to get maximum exposure. And its a decent way to find spammers that made accounts but never post anything.

I was already getting the insurance. I believe i can opt into the employer matched something something now too.
401k? Annuity? War bonds? I brought my big ass binder of job related materials home. Since i'm official now i'll try and find some time to learn exactly how everything works to maximize my benefits.

I had to sign off on an injury report because i tweaked my knee and took some ibuprofen.(I told them just write "Is out of shape. Will recover. They chuckled.") If it still hurts monday i was told let HR know and they will send me to the hospital to get it checked out to make sure it isn't serious.
SOOOO outside my entire work experience of no work/no paycheck, no paid holidays, no vacations, no sick time, no etc, etc
Barring my time in the union of course. Where they charged me thru the nose for tons of awesome stuff i never used. Like full coverage health, vision, dental. It only cost me ~8 bucks an hour.

The out of shape part is quickly falling to the wayside too. Haven't weighed myself since starting but i'm noticeably slimming down(all pants now need a belt) and bulking up. I should have Popeye arms in no time.

My phone decided it didn't want to take a charge. So i spent the last hour messing around with different cables and power sources.

Seems like ejecting the SIM and SD cards stopped it from trying to load things long enough for me to get it into a stable spot to take charge instead of endlessly cycling on and off.

I believe I mentioned it on here before. I was looking to buy a Gorf cab. It didn't look as good as I was lead to believe and it has something wrong I can't diagnose...

The owner touched base with me recently. I'm getting it for free. Just need to get it dropped off at my parents place.

So I now own an arcade cab :D that doesn't work :'(

So this has still yet to happen.
I had made space at my parents to get it dropped off there.
Before me and current owner had a chance to move it weather got terrible so we postponed. Then my parents place got partially flooded including the area i WOULD have stored this cab.

It hasn't finished being repaired yet and Gorf guy is in spring cleaning mode and wants it out. I need to find a temp home for it soon :'(

2 hours to get inspection sticker. Ended up late to work. No bonus time for me this week :-/
Failed for exhaust and no access to seatbelts. Seatbelt thing never happened before so that sucked.

Guess I'm going to have to finally get all that cardboard out of my truck :-/

My day started out... strange...
Heavy rain and fog this morning.

I'm going with traffic 70ish down the highway. A white car pulls out of the fog from out of the breakdown lane causing me and all other drivers to slam on the breaks.
White car then drives erratically swerving from rumble strip to rumble strip for about a mile before finally coming out of the high lane across both lanes of traffic missing the off ramp and CATCHING FUCKING AIR BY LAUNCHING OFF THE GUARD RAILS INTO A TRENCH OF DEATH.

Nothing on the news last i checked. I think the guy(s) in the car are dead. The google maps pic is the spot they launched from.
I've seen my fair share of accidents and been in some rather bad ones myself. But i have never followed behind someone knowing that an accident was going to happen for that long only to finally see it happen. It is pretty surreal. Even looking at the picture the embankment doesn't look nearly as steep as it seemed when they went over it. I should have been able to see there vehicle from the road and yet i couldn't...

EDIT
Also yes i called it in as soon as it happened from the end of the off ramp. When i hung up i head to the toll booth and then started thinking that i should have pulled off to go try and help/further assess the situation. I'm torn still on if i should have tried to get to them or if i did the right thing by not creating a hazard for others by leaving my car on the side of the road.

Driving through Eugene today I saw a guy selling stuff out of his truck by the side of the road. He had things like flags, shirts, buttons, signs.....proudly displaying the name "Trump." It was a lot of stuff and was pretty obvious to all going by. This is Eugene remember, only about 3 blocks from where one of the biggest and longest 99%er camps took place.

Since he was in a place were 100's of cars drive by a minute, and a fair amount of foot traffic, all I wonder is, did he have any interesting interactions with fellow humans today?

You shoulda pulled over, got out of your car, walked right up to him, and told him that you're totally on board with The_8_Bit_Donald's 8-point plan to make RF Generation great again! That would have been YUUUUUGE. It's true! It really is. Don't forget to mention the whole Canadians-stealing-our-bandwidth thing. Nothing like a little xenophobia to bring people together, right?

I just got a new phone. Picked up an LG V10, I'll see how it is over the next couple weeks. I'm thinking I'll wait until I move to build a new rig, so I don't have to haul the full tower. I'll take the parts I'm cannibalizing from my old tower.

I nearly drove down there today just to do that....and you're right I should have done it when I was there. Thing is, Eugene sucks....for driving in and parking. It's not a huge town/city, but it's like someone threw spaghetti at the wall and said, "That's the street layout!....after you randomly slap one-way's on half of them of course."

They do have some pretty good thirfting opportunities though, so there is that. And a really good bar-cade across the street from another game-store/growler-fill-'cade almost across the street from awesome beer store....I mean, it is still Oregon after all.

I don't know if any of you have this problem or not, but I might as well put this here.

Using Firefox and Twitter isn't working properly?
Make sure dom.webnotifications.enabled in about:config is set to true.

I just did a Firefox refresh because I couldn't figure out what was causing Twitter to stop working. It only started doing this last night.
After setting all my preferences back to what I had them at before and reinstalling all my addons, it was working again... Until I set dom.webnotifications.enabled to false...

Two men walk past a deep well and decide to find out how deep it is. One man finds a rock and throws it in but no splash is heard. Looking around they find an anvil and throw it into the well. While listening out for the splash they have to jump sideways as a large goat runs past and jumps into the well.

Standing in disbelief they start to hear a voice shouting Mary Mary. A farmer appears and explains that he has a large goat called Mary that has gone missing. The two men explain that a large goat ran past and jumped into the well. That's impossible shouts the farmer, she was tied to an anvil.

I think I might be thrifting a bit too much; at just about every Goodwill or Savers I've hit over the last two weeks, I've either been asked by customers if I work there, or if I can direct them to a certain department. Thanks to my familiarity with the layout of every local thrift store, I can often help them with the latter inquiry... and usually do.

More people need to think like Werner Herzog who i know next to nothing about. (Yes i have been called uncultured swine on more than one occasion.)

"Sure, and the question is this technology good or bad? is an incompetent question. It's humans who are good or bad. Technology doesn't have any qualities, it has technical qualities, yes. The internet is fast; the internet has many ramifications worldwide, and so you can quantify certain things, but you cannot endow it with qualities like good or bad."

Not sure what happened to his head...

hardly looked at RFG all summer, shame on me. attempting to catch up, i'm nearly 10 pages behind on the small scores thread alone.

haven't done much collecting this year, a few spurts here and there but on the whole i've been saving money for more important things, and collecting isn't a high priority unfortunately. it's been over a year since i last bought an N64 game :( and i'm fully aware that prices are just getting worse. hopefully in the next year or 2 i can get back into it once things settle down around here.

There's been an accident about 70 metres away from our house. When I last looked, there were two police cars and an ambulance on scene.
Sounds like two pedestrians have been hit by a drunk driver. At least one may need to go to hospital.

A group of ~12 people around my age are gathered around speaking to the police, drinking, smoking and being noisy.

EDIT: Emergency services have been there around an hour now. Not actually sure when they arrived.

EDIT 2: ~28 minutes later... Blue flashing lights still there. I think they're taking the vehicle now.

EDIT 3: ~23 minutes later... I think the emergency services have gone now.

So this is what happened a few days ago:
Two teenagers on a motorbike were hit by a car. Apparently the air ambulance landed nearby. I didn't hear it though.
One teen was taken to Hospital with a head injury and remains in a serious but stable condition.

It's been overdue for a while, but it finally happened: a wildfire broke out near my neck of the woods, in the Santa Cruz hills. It started around Loma Prieta-- yes, that Loma Prieta-- early this afternoon. I first saw it when I walked out the front door of my workplace on break:

Almost looks like a volcanic eruption, doesn't it? It looked even more so a few hours later:

A view of the conflagration from my front yard:

A coworker of mine, who has a background in fighting forest and brush fires, told me that it will take at least two days to contain. Last I heard, it had already consumed over 500 acres and a few homes.

Sorry to disappoint, but the fire's being pushed southeastward by the winds, away from the Silicon Valley's urban and suburban areas. Sadly, it's threatening to rip through the Uvas Canyon area, one of the most beautiful scenic routes the south bay has to offer.

If I start smelling roasted garlic in the air, I'll know that it's reached Gilroy...

It is near the epicenter of the 1989 earthquake, also known as the Loma Prieta quake.  It was most infamous for interrupting the World Series.

Speaking of epicenters: apparently the fire originated at a residence in the Loma Prieta region. My guess is that it was a propane leak/explosion. It didn't help that temps were in the triple digits up there at the time...

Someone told me that default Mountain Dew is supposed to be grapefruit flavor... but I'm pretty sure he was thinking of Squirt instead. ANYway, are there no other flavors available on the east end of the pond besides default flavor?

Mountain Dew contains tartrazine for its coloring, which was under investigation for a period of time in the UK/EU. It's the same chemical that had the rumor of reducing male potentcy that you see in a lot of other soda products here in the US. That's why "Energy" is mostly clear, and the reason behind the rebranding was to try to make it more appealing to consumers due to the high caffeine and sugar content.

They import the US versions sometimes, and they have others, but they're just not popular.

Oddly, I've had this conversation with mumbo before I think, when we were discussing the difference between lemon lime sodas in the US vs UK.

I had another dizziness attack last Saturday, and hit the local express-care clinic the following day. I appear to have something called positional vertigo, a condition that causes room-spinning and an urge to nearly blow groceries whenever I turn my head a certain way, typically upward. It's supposed to diminish with time if certain methods are followed and specialized exercises are done. Sadly, my periodic episodes take three to four days from which to recover, which has eaten up all my sick days at work, and now I'm on medical leave until further notice.

But enough about my happy-go-lucky adventures of fun and frivolity. How are y'all doin'?

We got very little here, as it went NNW instead of NW, or we would've had much stronger weather. Just had a lot of wind and rain. About 90 minutes NE was where the road was taken out near the beach and the flooding was. I was up for 38 hours looking for him, and was out in the weather for about 16. Left the garage open, went to bed, woke up and found him in the Garage behind my Centipede machine.

I still have not recovered from RWX.

I think i might actually be on energy drink withdrawal. I feel the same as when i quit smoking. Giving up all these addictions kinda sucks. But more money and the benefit of improved health (eventually...) yay!
Never had the effects from caffeine. It has been awhile since i sucked down that many energy drinks in such a short time frame tho.

Also haven't had a decent nights sleep in nearly a week. Last night was solid but not long enough to make up for the nearly complete lack leading up to it lol

If its not imperative to you living (you know, being able to afford food and basic bills like the water and electricity), and ots causing too much extra stress, then in fact it really could end up being worse for you in the end. If it effects your health, and causes problems at your other job
You can't trick me into joining social media even with your Steam keys!

RFG is all the social I need!

And all I ever look at on social media is women. I have got complaints from my mom when I like a picture so I had to figure out how to make it so she couldn't see it. Because you hear about how nude pictures are not allowed on there, but many of the ones I have liked take it to the limit, they cover their breast and privates with their arm and hand. Sometimes even the edge of the nipple can be seen. And bare asses, they don;t care about those I guess. Seen plenty of back shots without and censoring.

And twitter is my fav for that because they don't care at all. I have many nude modals liked on there, and you are not bound by any rules as far as I know. Can even show sex on there, but I just prefer softcore. (I don't like any dicks in my pics!)

So, I use social media for porn.

Yes, the internet is FOR PORN.

This great technology has bridged our world and brought us closer together.

FOR PORN.

Yes yes yes, "Just go look at a porn website".

If I see a woman I like and the only place to see her is on Facebook or Twitter then I don't care. To me sometime its just as hot to see one push the limits as it is to see some professional studios pictures. Many of the ones I like on those sites are amateurs.

Lets put it this way, I like women, if its nude art, awesome, if its straight up porn awesome, if its someone I seem to only like, awesome, if its someone a million guys seem to like awesome. Wherever I can find women posting pictures, awesome. As I was saying, each woman is unique, if she can only be found on facebook doing almost nudes, fine by me I will still enjoy the pictures.

Hell, all I need to see is her beautiful face a good deal of times, the rest is just a cherry on top.

A charity shop here has a Yamaha PSR-1700 for sale.
They have printed out an unended eBay listing and taped it to the keyboard.
This is the listing: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-PSR-1700-electronic-keyboard-/381814619347 (BIN/Offer: 350)
The charity shop wants 125 for it.

Now, here's a listing that has ended and sold: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-PSR-1700-keyboard-with-stand-/201660907225 (Bidding: 21)
That's a much better price. I'd happily pay that.

Charity shops pricing items based on current eBay listings is stupid.

Also, I got these:

No more politics. Move on to something else, or I'll just delete it.

Fascist!

On an ostensibly non-political note: the power on my block just went out. I'm using the light from my mobile phone to navigate through my house... and to type & send this post.

UPDATE: Power's back on, and not a moment too soon. Sure it was just for fifteen minutes... but it seemed like it was soooo much longer than that.

My brother who is a cook at a major hotel chain (DoubleTree who is owned by Hilton), who has worked there 3 years now and has never got more than 3 days in a row off from there (and has only taken 1 sick day), got all this week off (including the weekends)............ except Thanksgiving. They wanted him to go in and cook a Thanksgiving meal for the maids and the like.

But it doesn't do that for all pages... That's odd...

It does it on this: https://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=E-072-H-00310-A
But not on this: https://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=E-064-S-01570-A

Wait... two pages for showing the entries?
cgi-bin/getinfo.pl and PHP/gethwinfo.php

Seems Hardware entries get linked to PHP/gethwinfo.php, while Software entries get linked to cgi-bin/getinfo.pl.

Methinks you all didn't quite get what I was actually celebrating... which is understandable, seeing as how I didn't explain it. You see, since July 1st is the first day of the second half of the year, I celebrate the day as "Happy Middle-Aged Year!" 'Cuz, you know, it's the year's mid-point. And yes, I actually do say "Happy Middle Aged Year!" on that day to just about anyone, especially my coworkers. You know, just to enjoy the quizzical expressions they give me, their minds trying to figure out just what the hell I'm talking about. It's things like this that have made me the King of Mind-F*cks at the old salt mine. And I rule with an iron fist, lemme tell ya.

In related news: in recent years, I've been proclaiming "Happy Old Year!" on December 31st, 'cuz I don't think it's appropriate to celebrate the new year until it's actually the new year. And if you buy that explanation... um, what the hell is wrong with you?
