November 2006 was my first post, though I was lurking for at least a year before that (and yoinking people's ideas for the Shackled City game I was running).

Yesssss, Shackled City. I bought my copy at GenCon 2006 and ganked a truckload of stuff from these boards. Probably doubled the length of the native game using delvesdeep's materials alone!

I based a character in Patrick's Reign of Winter on these reindeer-herding people, who are now in trouble. I feel more moved by their plight than I would have if I hadn't heard of them before.

RPGs - building bridges between cultures?

hardcover partying
Ah, Jaysus...

C'mon, hardcover parties are great! Everyone brings their favorite John Grisham or James Patterson, we read the best steamy passages aloud, then end the evening with shots and a hearty pillow fight until everyone passes out.

I think first I will concentrate on Microsoft certs this summer. Easy and look nice on a resume. Plus, I have a feeling me and the computer will be good friends soon.

Don't they charge out the wazoo for those? It's part of the vicious "keep older people out of the job market" cycle. You can be fresh out of school or have these 20 certs we won't pay for to prove to us that your skills are current. Of course, the certs won't guarantee you a job, you just keep dropping $4-5,000 every few months in a wild guess as to what cert the next employer will want. Certification roulette!

This has been a subject over on Facebook:

possible adaption of the Black Company

I'm guardedly hopeful. It would have to be on a pay cable station. You cannot do this series justice with a PG rating. And I do love Eliza Dushku. She is attending my college ATM. Sadly I have yet to bump into her.

I'm so excited about this. One of my favorite series with one of my favorite actresses. Trying to not get all giddy fangirl about it.

Luck, monkey.

Last week, I was able to make a fist and open it again without having to use my other hand to unclench the fingers. And it didn't hurt, even though it still catches some.

Today, I used a can opener and successfully opened a can.

Things get better.

The hoverboard is here...it just kinda sucks. :|

The things I see called "hoverboards" don't actually hover. They're more like bad skateboards. If it don't hover, it's cheating.

I see I have more books to read. Yay! And boo! So many books, so little money.

I have to sell my car before making any purchases. I bought a new (2003 new!) one that should do better in the winter and have to sell my own car. It's weird owning TWO cars all by my lonesome. What a PITA. I'd rather not even have one. Where is my hoverboard? Where is my transporter? Dammit! Get cracking, people!

Didn't realize how heavily that tumor prospect was weighing on me. I've been blazing through work today, all full of energy (and billable hours, too!).

I swear the apartment upstairs is being used as a practice studio by the entire cast, crew, and company of "Riverdance."

These people make Percherons seem dainty.

So glad now that my mom yelled at me about walking heavily when I was a kid. Now I move like a f+#~ing ghost.

Yeah, my dad was always ann early adopter - eagerly pre-ordered all the cool stuff and built a lot of his own gear in the early days. He was upgrading his Mac when he went into the hospital for the last time in his eighties. Exact opposite of my mom.

That's one of the reasons I find ageist stereotypes offensive all the way around. I read about what marvels today's kids are with electronics. What they are is good users - sometimes - because they got to start young. Being able to use something does not mean that you understand it. That stereotype puts tons of pressure on kids to perform miracles while ignoring the fact that today's tech was developed by people who are now - surprise! - old.

Ability and interest aren't generational; they're distributed across age, race, economic, and gender lines.

People are stupid. That's also universal.

These are middle-aged geek reminiscences. Old geeks reminisce about Basic, FORTRAN, and COBOL. And punch cards. And wiring sorter boards.

Since my haunted machine is running slow on downloads and file saves, I decided to clean up unused files on the main drive. It has a 921MB capacity. Windows disk cleanup promised to free 4TB of space by deleting junk files.

Disk of holding?

I found some nice utilities to fix a Windows computer and was trying them on my haunted Windows 10 machine. The first one ran clean. The second one said another scan was running. What was running? Task mgr says: Windows 10 update. They just pushed an emergency update (forced) in the middle of my diagnostics. Now the update seems to be failing, then hanging. I downloaded the msu to run manually and decided to restart before installing to get a clean set of services without failed update statuses hanging about. So when I clicked the restart option: "Getting Windows ready. Don't turn off your computer." And it's been spinning for 10 minutes. >_< I think Microsoft gets Windows ready by handing it a tube of lube. Not even drinks and dinner, man.

Looks like they pushed an emergency update for Win 10 after the fun Anniversary Update fiasco. Geek news is full of the story. Update KB4015438, if you're interested.

In the middle of diagnostics.

Without notification or confirmation.

Microsoft! *shakes fist*

No, but it's good to be done. Of course, now that it's turned in, I am convinced it needs another pass. But the authors really need to fix a few things first.

I hope they give it back to me for a second pass. Poor Taig usually has to fix everything I miss.

The gaming system is up. We have lift-off.

Waiting a few to see if it drops or not.

I rather like the keyboard. Clickety-click.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

New keyboard! Now to see if my game system will stay up with the new keyboard. And if it does... how the heck does a keyboard randomly and frequently power down a big desktop? If this doesn't stop the power faults, the only things that haven't been swapped out are memory and OS disk drive. I've put in a new case, mobo, CPU, fans, cooling system, SSD, mouse, and monitor. There's not that much left to swap. :/

At the very least, the constant spooky PG UP/PG DN scrolling will stop. I am fairly sure that the keyboard was throwing extraneous signals, though I initially blamed the mouse scroll wheel. Bad me.

And this is a mechanical, lighted keyboard! YAY! I can work all night without typos!

Life is good.

Since I don't have family to speak of, I generally splurge for Christmas and my birthday and buy myself something I want rather than need. At Christmas, I bought subscriptions to the Washington Post and NY Times. For my birthday, I bought.... Goat Simulator. >_>

Now I am going to go wreck Goatville.

I love AWOLNATION's "Sail" for workouts, for some reason. It always gets the blood pumping.

I've actually knitted since I was a kid. I lived in a 3-generation household. My grandma loved to teach me crafts, and I loved to learn them. My poor mom can't knit to save her life. And now they've found knitting has similar benefits to meditation, I'm glad to do it.

Eh, don't worry about it. I'm in Honey Badger mode.

Now I'm gonna go do something girly and old - knit, maybe, while watching TV? Not sure what to watch. Guess I'll channel surf until I find one with commercials for Rascals, catheters, and Medicare Supplemental Insurance.

Actually, I'm gonna go pump iron while listening to Dethklok. And you can't stop me!

That banana was good. :)

Next class is late March, so I'm practicing shading and form drawing. Nothing exciting, just putting in the work to master the skills.
