LOL. I started on the internet in its infancy, and I was taught from the start:

(1) Before you e-mail anything, imagine posting it on a public bulletin board with your name attached. Because that's exactly what's going to happen.

(2) Never use your real name on the interwebs.

So as I mentioned a while back, I've been online since the late 1970's (yes, they had internet then, darn it! It was just... slooooooow!), yet I have "the smallest web presence I've ever seen" according to a friend.

Woo hoo!

I'd take you up on that bet. I have about zero web presence due to my hatred of social networking in general. I have never, ever used my real name on anything, and I firmly fight against anyone who would force me to.

Zero web presence. Zero clothing.

Sounds about right.

My web presence is here. I hardly even post on the AP boards anymore (The new generation isn't as much fun) and I won't touch Facebook or Twitter.

My internet presence is now too much tied to professional ascended hobbyist interaction to be anonymous...

Having unpronounceable name might help, though I don't know toward which side of the equation.

OK. I can cross that off my "bucket list":

  • Dressing like a creepy psychopath, driving a beaten-up old car in front of a middle school, and calling out, "Want a ride, little girl?"
  • The best part is, our neighbor's daughter TOTALLY played along. "Are you sure it's OK? Am I allowed to get in your car? Oh, OK. I'll hop in!"

    It'll all be hilarious... 'til the police show up later today...

    My assistant manager got fired today. They've not been happy with her for a long time, and today-the day the new regional vice president came for his first visit-she decided not to show up. So, she got canned. Good. Of course, now we are without a GM or an AGM, so that could be interesting.

    I keep reading this as, "I am cluttered." and it hasn't ceased to be amusing.

    I'm... not sure why it strikes me as funny as it is, or why I keep reading it that way. I'll probably just blame my dyslexia and oddness and call it a day.

    (Still amusing.)

    I can tell Nox is... from a different era in gaming.

    It's a fun game, but the linearity is impressive, even by NWN OC games. At least, as of the Warrior rout, though I suspect the other two are just as linear, even if the story is strikingly different.

    As I've gotten through six chapters (five today yesterday, including the horrendously large chapter three), I expect to be able to run through the other two paths and get a kind of "Grand Story" from the lot of them. I'm planning on going in order: warrior, conjurer, wizard.

    EDIT: I'd written this post last night. I only posted it today, when I noticed it was still here. Whoops!

    See, this is why I need to be a high-level conjurer:

    - Me: *gate*
    - Solar: "YOU HAVE SUMMONED HEAVEN'S MIGHTIEST FORCE OF GOOD, MORTAL. WHAT ABYSSAL HORROR HAS BROKEN FORTH THAT YOU COMMAND ME HERE TO OBEY? ... ... ... OH, BOTHER, IT'S YOU AGAIN."
    - Me: "Yeah, I need a game cube memory card. My four-year-old is playing Wind Waker, you see, and I-"
    - Solar: "NO. JUST... JUST STOP IT. I REFUSE. THIS IS STUPID. JUST GO BUY YOUR OWN. I HAVE TO GO DO IMPORTANT THINGS, LIKE SAVING THE INNOCENT FROM HELL OR ROFLSTOMP THE TARRASQUE FOR THAT ASHIEL FELLOW. YOU KNOW. MATURE AND IMPORTANT THINGS. JUST GO TO A STORE, AND-"
    - Me: "But, Angel, it's not readily available, and I can't find it anywhere around here. You know we're just a small town. And he really needs it! He can't save his game! Wish for one for me, pleeeaaassssse? Also I gate'd you, so you kind of have to..."
    - Solar: "OH, FOR... UGH. IF I WASNT CELESTIAL GOODNESS INCARNATE, I'D PROBABLY HATE YOU. FINE. HERE'S YOUR CARTRIDGE FOR YOUR CHILD'S GAME."
    - Me: "Oh, and do you know where my keys-"
    - Solar: "THEY'RE IN YOUR JEANS POCKET. THE ONE'S YOU WORE ABOUT FIVE MINUTES AGO, CURRENTLY ON YOUR BED. YOUR GLASSES ARE ON YOUR HEAD. YOUR KINGMAKER NOTES ARE IN THE CABINET, WHERE YOU'VE ALREADY LOOKED THREE TIMES - YES, THAT CABINET, THE ONE I'M POINTING AT - LOOK OVER HERE, LOOK RIGHT HERE, WHERE I AM POINTING, DO I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING, FINE. HERE ARE YOUR KINGMAKER NOTES. YOUR BABY'S BOTTLE IS UNDER HIS BED; HIS DIAPER IS NOW CHANGED AND HE IS BURPED AND FED. HERE ARE THE WINNING LOTTERY NUMBERS FOR THE NEXT TWELVE LOTTERIES WITH A 99% ACCURACY RATE. NOW. STOP. SUMMONING. ME."
    - Me: "Wow, thanks, Angel, you're the best!"
    - Solar: "YES. THAT'S WHY MANY CONSIDER IT A CRIME THAT I BE SUMMONED BY MORTALS AT ALL, MUCH LESS ON FRIVOLOTIES..."
    - Me: "Awesome! So, you're GMing next week?"
    - Solar: "... ... ... ... YES. GOODBYE."
    - Me: "That went well! What a happy, charming fellow! So helpful!"

    ... hm, on second thought, maybe it's better that I'm not...


    Awesome!

    Ah yes, the annual Pea Bear doesn't have her s~!@ together for the annual school trip despite having weeks of us telling her to get her s@*$ together. And she has the nerve to say it was our fault, despite her insisting she had it all taken care of herself every time we asked.

    I am going to anime next today. It will be a fun anime based convention in the mythical land of new jersey. Tactics if you need help with that memory card or whatsis let me know, I will get it for you at the con. Anybody need anything else?

    A Veritech (any) or Max or Meriya Sterling figures. But only if cheap, I don't have a ton of money.

    Otherwise, just have the most awesome epic time possible, that's the best thing of all.

    I can look around my area for a card for Tacticslion as well. :-)

    There's never any fun power struggles or gross incompetence by management at my job. It looked like their might this winter when enthusiastic young manager in training started to gun for Lundberg manager. But then Lundberg manager cut off his coffee consumption on the floor, so he quit. Now he's a junior sales associate at a car dealership. :-)


    Oh! You guys are very kind! You don't have to, though. I'm mostly complaining because I'm annoyed at the fact that we can't find one. I'm certain we'll get it in time, as one local store has been promising, "they'll come in soon," though, admittedly, that's been the line for a while now...

    (Great store. Nice people. Solid policies. Not great, nice, or solid on the consistent inventory. This is both good and bad. Good because they do brisk business. Bad because they are often "out" of whatever I happen to want whenever I happen to want it. I suspect, however, that this is mostly just me, personally. Like, my timing with them is mysteriously "off" for some reason.)

    My most recent lamentation was over the fact that my son had gotten all the way to Dragon Roost island... and then we had to turn off the Wii, and lose that progress.

    Hypothetically, we should have at least three such memory cards somewhere around the house. Much like all of our Kingmaker notes and hard copies, however, we can't find them. Similarly a pink baby bottle. And that one is... baffling, considering it vanished by somehow never leaving the house, from what I can tell.

    That said, mostly I made the above post because, while feeling tired and headache, I wanted to be able to conjure something to solve my problems; I found the image so amusing, that I thought it would be a funny post. :D

    Although, if you find the most amazing card ever for a very low price, sure! ;D
    (I do not expect this to happen at a con of any kind.)

    You guys rock.

    Okay. No political stance about anything. But I had to mention, as it keeps striking me as hilarious. An image of a bad-haired Beowulf crushing Grendel and the slogan, "Make America Geat Again!" emblazoned across it.

    I think that's what I recall. She didn't appreciate how some of the people on the site were behaving, and chose to recuse herself.

    It was on the Agent Carter thread if you want to read her exit post. I would link it... But I have no idea how to from a phone.

    Is that why Dark Mistress isn't on any more?

    There was someone following her around to consistently harass her, now that I think about it.

    No. One of Paizo's former freelancers pissed off some local a!!holes in his dayjob, and an axe-grinding reporter started digging into all of his personal life, including harassing the freelancer online. DM was friendly with the freelancer, so the reporter started harassing her too. The freelancer pretty much stopped freelancing, and DM went into hibernation/deep lurk. >:(
