So much good news, then a piece of bad news.

My co-creator for the VN project is having health issues.

Going to be f!!$ing cold the next few days. Currently at 4 degrees, but don't worry, with the brisk wind the windchill is down to -15.

My favourites so far:

Male Nightmare Ram Armor Pinup

Female Frogdog Armor Pinup (PUPPIES!)

Female Black Knight Pinup

Kinda down that they haven't released a Male BK Pinup, as that would match a couple of my characters probably :3

I endured 50 hours without sleep due to insomnia years ago. I don't recommend it either.

Freehold likes his Y-Wings.

Me, I am a man of simple tastes.

Spoiler:

While I would guess this very talented creator named his exeptional work Tyrant on his own, I was the one who named the actual Tyrant when three of Death Squadron's Star Destroyers were never named. I had attempted to make the ship Grand Moff Tarkin's former Flagship, but that idea never got a backing from EU.

Damn, man. That nearly brought tears to my eyes. As someone who builds things (mainly electronics from kits, unless you also count programming) I am seriously impressed. :)

That reminds me, Baron.

Has anyone ever produced a list of all named Star Destroyers?

I shoveled snow for 35 hours straight and then had to stay up another 11 hours taking care of Pea Bear while the General worked.

I stay awake 'cause it's fun. I go to sleep when people say it's time to work . . . .

I never did count the hours, but one game-filled weekend for me involved 3 solid days of consciousness. Probably somewhere between 65 - 76 hours straight. That was a lot of energy drinks and dice rolling.

Been eight years ago, though; I can't be bothered to take that much trouble anymore. But I'll lay that at the feet of my fellow gamers -- scheduling difficulties.

Or, maybe they really don't wanna game with me . . . . Meh.

Damn, man, that's one hellish endurance run. I can't imagine doing that at my age. *Ding, ding, ding* The winner, and current champion of the Sleep-deprived Endurance run is Syrus Terrigan!

After three weeks with people around the house I almost forgot how nice it is to be alone.


I don't want to go more, but life has been pretty demanding.

Still, I've pulled stuff like Syrus, but that's college stuff, not "I'm a dad." stuff. At least it wouldn't work for me. :)


Anyway, maybe nap b ford get my eldest from school in an hour.

Because shoveling snow for thirty six hours ain't no thing.

I feel like mine was harder to do. Also I was way past college when I did it.

Sentimentally, this is one of the first lists (though it may very be well the very first compiled list).

While they are more science than Space Opera, I am very proud of the Star Wars Technical Commentaries which predate Wookiepedia.

This is the most current list I know of (but even this one is missing some Star Destroyers from video games and the Magellan from Pyramid magazine.

Fun fact, there was a Dragon Class cruiser in the pages of Dragon Magazine that was intended for West End Games Star Wars.

Thanks for the list. Damn, that's a lot of ships.

Yes, I did. That's what nearly brought me to tears, not the fact that my bottle of Sake is half-gone by now.

In fact, it was the Star Wars saga that enticed me to begin playing the Traveller RPG in the first place. Since then, I've had a fondness for the big ships. In GURPS Traveller, I've become very good at designing ships, especially Warships. :)

In terms of sleep deprivation, Impus Major's birth was the worst experience of my life.

I was 34 years old, and the hospital told us, "He's borderline premature. If you don't feed him every 2 hours he'll likely die. And no, we won't wake you up or notify you. If you won't give him to us to put him in the incubator farm, he's entirely your responsibility, and if he dies, it's your fault."

Isn't modern medical care *wonderful*?

So I stayed awake for 72 hours solid, notifying NobodysWife every 2 hours that it was time to feed Impus Major.

By the end, I was hallucinating a bit, and completely fried beyond all reason.

So, from personal experience, 72 hours is beyond the limit of human sanity.

Whee?

Sounds like the NICU was having a bad night. (Stupid spell checker. I'm the son of a retired nurse. I know all the acronyms, so get off my case.) Yeah, 72 hours seems to be the limit.

I would happily beat the s%@& out of that staff. I was incredibly premature (2lbs 5oz.)and my mother was not treated that way.

*sigh*

I had a pleasure of browsing Interstellar Wars and peek at Spaceships series for GURPS, 4th edition...

I wish I could afford to get them all.

I'd hug them, feed them, love them, and use them to build magnificent battleships and name them George!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Then just get Interstellar Wars. The Spaceships series is incompatible with Traveller.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

But I want them all!

Ok, technically I'd like to have all the GURPS books... ALL OF THEM.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

But it would be waste of money because my friends are not very keen on playing GURPS... :(

So until I have spare money to spend on frivolities that will be gathering dust on shelves (actually, they would probably not get that much dust, I would read them from time to time, but you get the drift), no deal...

Well, it was our first child, and their whole attitude was that if we weren't willing to part with him, we were on our own. I'm a firm believer in "first contact" and "bonding", so I didn't want him out of my sight.

So for the first 72 hours, Impus Major never left my sight, and I was ready to annihilate any threat to him.

The hospital staff was less-than-sympathetic, and felt that if I was unwilling to accept THEIR protocol of taking him away to a separate care room where ALL the babies could be watched at once, then it was MY problem.

Yeah, it was... unpleasantness all around.

We didn't have any complications with Pea Bear or Tiny T-Rex but the nurses in Seattle had dirt in their fingernails and never washed their hands, just using sanitizer and then trying to hold Pea Bear with their dirty alcohol soaked fingers.

Otherwise a fairly routine birth, except for maybe barely getting to the hospital (we were admitted at 3:32 a.m. Pea Bear was born at 3:37)

My worst experience of staying up was a few years ago when I worked 3rd shift at the factory.

Weekends mess with my sleep schedule, so Sunday I am usually up from 9 AM and awake the whole day and night.

Incredibly snowy, so driving to and from work was an adrenaline filled nightmare.

When I got home the wife wanted me to stay up with her. When she left I would shovel and do the other chores, then shovel again. I did that for a whole day and went back to work.

Hellish drive in and back.

Stayed up with wife until she left, shoveled before she left so she had a easy exit out. Finished dishes and laundry. Shoveled again.

That last bout of shoveling I started seeing things in the periphery of my vision. (Glances around at a completely empty silent street) When I finished shoveling, I realized I was off the rest of the week for the holidays, so I decided to sleep.

I slept till the wife got home, and then went back to sleep when she did shortly after getting home. I slept about 14 hours, I was up for close to 60 hours I think. Way too much.

Speaking about messed daily routine... It's a few minutes past midnight and I will probably try to get to bed soon instead of making myself a dinner...

We'll see how it will end.
