Going to a tournament tomorrow, and a "qualifier" Round Robin after that. College Station challenged us to a crew battle in two weeks, so we need to decide how we're gonna fill two empty spots. Math test isn't this Monday like I thought, but next Monday so that's nice.

I'm also officially the Toastiest guy here. Edit: I typed this and hit Post, then went and did something else for a while, and now I can't remember what I was talking about.

There's a 25 minute wait at the  restaurant and some disgusting white trash family has the last seats on the bench.

They got up. Just annoying people chattering and those awful children making noise. God I hate people.

Post by: Missing Person on November 05, 2014, 04:34:05 am
I've seen both. Plus this is a short term one. Decided to nip my sinus infection in the bud and get it taken care of now vs. it interfering with Friday Night Mafia.

In China, a lot of places will give you medicine in the form of IV treatments instead of pills, even as an outpatient. The logic is for an hour or two of inconvenience for two nights, you feel better faster.

I honestly don't even miss prescription pills anymore.

Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Missing Person on November 05, 2014, 06:49:30 am
I guess I'm just not as a needle-phobic as everyone else here.

I mean, I remember when I was like 6, and going in to have my tonsils taken out, the lab tech having to come in to draw blood, and climbing the shit out of my mom.  I also remember freaking the hell out when I was like 8 getting booster shots done.

I guess my general fear of needles has subsided overall.  Doesn't mean I like looking at them or watching them go in.  And the one of the main reasons I never give blood is that I don't want to see the massive needles that they use for doing so.  (The other reason being that I've been outside the US, and the American Red Cross won't let you give within 6 months of being outside the country. I could donate to the Chinese Red Cross, but still, big ass needle, and I've had nurses here miss my ginormous veins before...not kidding, one time they missed me giving me an IV, I looked down to have a fluid buildup at my wrist that literally was in the shape of a mango.)

But I've been the hospital a time or two and had to do IVs before, so it doesn't bother me THAT much, especially knowing it's medicine.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Pimp Willy on November 05, 2014, 07:26:42 am
Needles dont actually bother me, but if you think I'm gonna sit for a few hours with an iv in my arm just to avoid a cold thats hillarious, I'll just sniffle my way through a few days and move on with my life
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Vynce on November 05, 2014, 10:27:39 am
I like needles. I have to inject myself once a week with arthritis medicine.

Needles dont actually bother me, but if you think I'm gonna sit for a few hours with an iv in my arm just to avoid a cold thats hillarious, I'll just sniffle my way through a few days and move on with my life

Eh for me, it was a matter of perspective.  I'm usually one to never go to the doctor for a sinus infection unless it gets really bad.  I have a really bad dust allergy, when coupled with living here, I get them a lot.  If I went to the doctor every single time I had one, I would probably end up with MRSA from doing all the antibiotics they'd give me.  Plus, you can pretty much ride it out and do some sinus rinses and steam treatments and get better within a week and a half.  I'll usually spend all that time resting and doing show marathons.

I didn't have that kind of luxury time this week where I could afford to ride it out.  Tomorrow, I have to lead my students in their performance for their parents.  Which means I have to yell out directions.  I was losing my voice and developing a chest cough, so that wasn't working out well.  Further, we have Friday Night Mafia so long as we get the players.  I did not want to show up sounding like Snuffleupagus at best.

If I was back in the States I'd just cancel because the best I could get would be pills that would still take a long time to get me better, but here, I can do two doses of IV treatments over two days for an hour each and get better almost immediately.

Plus, it's not really that expensive to do that either.  So it was just the right choice this time.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: RadicalFuzz on November 05, 2014, 07:13:34 pm
Okay, so this week was in particular special, that makes more sense now. We thought you were crazy and, like Pimp said, gave up a few hours of your life whenever you got a bit sinus-y.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Missing Person on November 05, 2014, 07:18:13 pm
Yeah, no way.

It takes a lot for me to go to the doctor anymore.  Especially being overseas and uninsured.  (Granted my treatment's still cheaper than any equivalent would be in America.)

Besides, I was like that, especially with my sinuses, in America.  Spent a whole week once eating soup and watching Full Metal Alchemist.  That was a great week in retrospect.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: ForgeDigger on November 05, 2014, 08:30:41 pm
The original FMA, I'm assuming?

Still haven't gotten around to watching Brotherhood yet.

Reminds me of when I was a little kid and, since I have some blood condition, I had to go to the doctor's to get blood work done.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Missing Person on November 05, 2014, 08:55:09 pm
Yeah, I started in on Brotherhood, and I just wasn't feeling it.  I know it's closer to the manga, but I never read the manga, so the original anime holds a dear place in my heart.

I'm not a big anime watcher, but there are some series that just get me sucked it because they are just that good.  Those are series that you could take to anyone and if they objectively watched it without being prejudiced based on the fact that it was anime, they would have to admit that it's very good TV.

Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: RadicalFuzz on November 06, 2014, 01:21:53 pm
The fight scenes are done entirely with a pastel filter over them. And each fight scene lasts approximately 4/5 episodes. If you're busy marathoning Bebop then you definitely don't want to get involved with Naruto, it's a lot more episodes for a lot less plot (early on).

Also, how is Bebop? I tried a few episodes and I could just never get into it. Does it get better the longer it goes on?

It also means I have guaranteed ethernet access and don't have to be quiet or refrain from swearing as a concession.

And that I can go to sleep at 3 am and wake up at 3 pm without being bothered or feeling any guilt.

And that I can share a bathroom with one less person.

And that I can fap without a care.

My sleep schedule fluctuates so badly it's not funny. It doesn't help when I jump between continents and completely lose track of time.

I've always been one that i fall asleep when I'm tired and wake when I'm not. Of course now that I work 8-5 on weekdays that ravages me, having to force myself to sleep by at least 11pm at night and wake up at 7 at the latest.

I find your framing to set you up for failure. One does not force oneself to sleep, one allows oneself to fall asleep.  I've lost 50 pounds of fat and gained x amount of muscle over the last 7 months.

There is no substitute to engaging our bodies in an emotionally intelligent way. If you love someone dearly, what you wish for them? Drink water, eat real food, sleep regularly, exercise, don't worry, be happy. Why wait until death for heaven when you can have it here with each other. You yourself, must love yourself this way. To love them with all inside yourself completely.

I feel pretty great about it. I read that only 1% of people can make life style changes and sustain them! right now I live in a reality in which everyone around me is getting fatter and I'm just getting a taste for fitness. I don't know how to interact with women with my new found level of attractiveness. Being recently divorce but without kids is interesting. It makes me not want to have kids...

I read about SAD in my Psychology textbook.
Quote
Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia)
Many people consider themselves shy, and most people find social evaluation uncomfortable at best, or giving a speech somewhat mortifying. Yet, only a small proportion of the population fear these types of situations significantly enough to merit a diagnosis of social anxiety disorder (SAD) (APA, 2013). SAD is more than exaggerated shyness (Bogels et al., 2010; Schneier et al., 1996). To receive a diagnosis of SAD, the fear and anxiety associated with social situations must be so strong that the person avoids them entirely, or if avoidance is not possible, the person endures them with a great deal of distress. Further, the fear and avoidance of social situations must get in the way of the persons daily life, or seriously limit their academic or occupational functioning. For example, a patient at our clinic compromised her perfect 4.0 grade point average because she could not complete a required oral presentation in one of her classes, causing her to fail the course. Fears of negative evaluation might make someone repeatedly turn down invitations to social events or avoid having conversations with people, leading to greater and greater isolation.
The specific social situations that trigger anxiety and fear range from one-on-one interactions, such as starting or maintaining a conversation; to performance-based situations, such as giving a speech or performing on stage; to assertiveness, such as asking someone to change disruptive or undesirable behaviors. Fear of social evaluation might even extend to such things as using public restrooms, eating in a restaurant, filling out forms in a public place, or even reading on a train. Any type of situation that could potentially draw attention to the person can become a feared social situation. For example, one patient of ours went out of her way to avoid any situation in which she might have to use a public restroom for fear that someone would hear her in the bathroom stall and think she was disgusting. If the fear is limited to performance-based situations, such as public speaking, a diagnosis of SAD performance only is assigned.

It's upsetting how appropriate this is. lol

$32. X-men trilogy, First Class, both Wolverine movies, and the brand new one.

SRGay is down again

Shoulder hurts, down to the bone, using the "Back Buddy" trademark sign heating pad for it. Basically rice in a cloth 2 long section wrap. Warm it up in the microwave and apply.

Managed 2 blocks of 3 hours each streaming that reloaded37, and saw the Daigo Wong parry live and the 3s finals I wanted to inbetween some much needed sleep. Haven't watched a stream in forever.

It chugged up my browser having left it open nearly a day straight big instances and memory usage in the task manager! Thought that attributed to the flashing issue I got around here but a browser close and open it still persists.

2 kinds specifically, a smaller square near avatars (as big as any avatar) then either the top half of the page or bottom half depending on which direction I scroll flashes. A PRNT screen hasn't captured it yet to screenshot it.

The last ep of the Walking dead was so uneven, too many groups! Then the Priest guy becomes another side story to the 2 main storylines already happening?!

That character and the 2 groups have been in the same plot since the start of this season, so 6 episodes deep? I was trying to not be specific with the Priest also and possibly spoil by saying any more.

The thread to ask for forum help is called: "Official problems and solution thread (http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/137091/official-problem-and-solution-thread#latest)" and it only has members asking whats going on,

with 1 reply from Preppy about an older issue with a spoiler in a spoiler broke lots of info in character threads, and anywhere 2 spoilers are used. Maybe a "view page source" check could've seen whole posts though even if they got double BB code broken.

Yeah, I started in on Brotherhood, and I just wasn't feeling it.  I know it's closer to the manga, but I never read the manga, so the original anime holds a dear place in my heart.

I'm not a big anime watcher, but there are some series that just get me sucked it because they are just that good.  Those are series that you could take to anyone and if they objectively watched it without being prejudiced based on the fact that it was anime, they would have to admit that it's very good TV.

I love the original FMA! Brotherhood wasn't as good to me, sure it was closer to the manga, but it just lacked a certain spark. I read the manga and loved it. But for whatever reason Brotherhood never sucked me in.

I have gigantic veins, it's almost impossible to miss on me.  The only time I've been fearful of medical care here is the one time (and the only time) a nurse has been unable to stick me.  She was so sure she did, I'm not sure how she missed, and turned on the drip anyway.  I looked down a few minutes later to see my wrist bloated and looking like a mango.

In hindsight my comment sounds dirty... But it's not!

The same thing happened to me before. Well, on two different occasions. One time a nurse was sure she got an IV in my hand, but she didn't. 15 minutes later the back of my hand started to look like a water balloon

. The second time I was in the hospital for a short stay and a vein in my arm collapsed while the IV was in. It happened while I was asleep. Imagine my surprise to wake up and see my left arm looking like Popeyes.

I've never had one collapse, thankfully, but I'm sure if I did, they'd have to resuscitate me.

Yeah, it's so rare for me that I freaked my shit.

I can usually tell a nurse because if they see my arms they say, "You have nice veins."

That really sounds creepy unless you put it into perspective.

If anyone tells me that and they aren't a medical professional, I'm backing away slowly...

That's like saying these here home made cotton candy is way better than that pre packaged cotton candy. Your carbs should come from slow burning source like oats or squash, yams.

Fyi (in case this matters to anyone) dual boot on Windows 8 and linux is absolute bs. It looks sincere when it asks what OS I'd like to use when I boot up, but choosing Ubuntu pretty much crashes the system because it doesn't work with UEFI boot. So you have to go into the system configuration, change it from UEFI boot to CMS boot and then Ubuntu will boot automatically (it won't even recognize Windows 8 as an option anymore).

TL;DR Windows 8 sucks ass and anyone who says otherwise is retarded and has no idea what they're talking about #salt

Yeah but bread is one of those 3 things, booze turns to sugar, sugar turns to sugar, oatmeal, sweet potatoes. One glass of orange juice equates to eating 5 oranges without the pulp. Bread is garbage, you wouldn't be able to eat wheat from the stalk. You need to ground it, bleach it and then cook it like a science experiment to get this glue type things that you bake.

To add to this bread discussion, nothing is less appetizing to me than Chinese Mantou.  It's basically this steamed bread with literally no texture, no flavor, nothing.  Chinese people eat this shit like hotcakes, kid you not.  You can't do much to flavor it up either, unlike rice.

And yeah, that belief that Chinese people eat shitloads of rice?  Big myth.  Only certain regions do, then the regions that don't are the ones that get moist over mantou.

I could but I probably won't. :P

I'm sure I'll get it after I go to the discussion or whatever.

Still, not knowing how to approach something can be fairly annoying as a programmer.

It reminds me of Erlang, a thing I learned in one of my languages classes. Such an odd language, basically every function was designed to be recursive. In this way, you'd be able to scale up or down, hot swap out hardware, etc without skipping a beat. Designed for phone companies I believe.

This seems to be similar. Your function gets a small subset of data, and does what it needs to do within that subset, then returns its results. You could have 100 processes sorting 100 things each, instead of 1 process sorting 100,000 things. Almost like a quick sort, you just break the data down into small sets and sort the smaller set recursively. The benefit is, as you scale up hardware, you can solve things much faster. That isn't really possible if you just have 1 process doing a for loop, or trying to manage all that memory.

A bit more overhead managing all the jobs, but you could easily just throw more hardware at it. Have 2 processes each sort the same list. If one fails, just take the result of the other one and don't skip a beat. They use it for Big Data analysis, where looking at the ENTIRE list of data is just not feasible. I know they have some hackathons for hadoop, I should try to get involved in it and see what I can do with it

Also: first time my PC has been legitimately set up in over two weeks. It had been off and up until I finished putting this desk together I had been using my dresser as a desk and wasn't able to update my wireless adapter's drivers. Yes that part is unrelated to the desk but it wasn't until today that I carried my stuff into the other room to ethernet into the router.

Ethernet is apparently supposed to be capitalized according to chrome.

Yes, so long as you have a shell.  Basically, the only thing you're buying other than the shell is hard drive, wireless, processor, and ram, and possibly if it's not onboard the shell, graphics card.  The shell comes with the casing, screen, optical drive, and motherboard.

The biggest thing I'm hyped about is the visual effects and the more offensive engine. Combos seem to juggle more, which usually does more damage, and there's a guard break system. Also having unique special effects in whatever powerup mode, if they keep up the quality that Ryu & Chun have, is gonna look so pretty.

I usually don't get serious up in here, but man...things are getting kinda shitty on my end.

My aunt has been in the hospital for about a week.  She has a gastric obstruction right now, and they can't figure out how to treat it due to her having some past complications with hernia repair.  She got sent to St. Louis to a specialist and they still have no positive news coming from it.

Then, one of my best friends since high school (one of the guys I was trying to get to start playing mafia on SRK) has been in the hospital for a week or two with an infection in his hip.  I talked to him yesterday, and he said he was getting better, and the doctor said he might be out in a couple days.  Today I get told that they transferred him to St. Louis as well, the exact same hospital as my aunt, because it's spread through his body.  The doctor's saying he has "a long road to recovery."

Merry Christmas indeed.

One of the top twitch streamers had 90k people on his stream waiting to watch him open packs... and they couldnt because it wasnt working for him. He literally ordered mcdonalds online during his stream and had 45k people watching him do it, lol.

When that fell through, I let my son open the 3 free packs, then play in practice mode vs the AI. He can play vs real people but he gets stressed out, probably my fault lol. But yeah, its a fun game.

Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Missing Person on December 10, 2014, 07:31:04 am
I never told you guys how inept this "IT Guy" is.  I will use finger quotes every time I refer to the "IT Guy," because I believe "IT Guy" isn't even qualified to operate a pencil sharpener.

When I first got to this school, they stuck me on an ATX cube computer that overheated within minutes of usage. Not even power usage, just like, turn the fucker on, open up a program, it shits its pants and turns off.  I contacted him repeatedly to either fix it, or get me another computer.  He would take it, I would be without a computer the entire day, then he'd bring it back the next day, then it'd do its thing again.  "IT Guy" did jack fucking shit to that computer, he just pretended to work on it then bring it back.  I had to bring my laptop in, and it was running Linux solely at the time, and couldn't connect to the printer they had, because for some reason, their printer had no CUPS drivers.  I had to wait for someone in my department to die (yes, die, I'm not making this shit up, one of my coworkers in my first year died from complications of pneumonia compounded with diabetes) to get a computer, the one I've been using to this day.

Now, fast forward to my second year, and we get a new Korean teacher.  She will be referred to as Tits McGhee, because this girl had a NICE rack.  So, Tits McGhee gets saddled with my old station at school, the same ATX cube that shit its pants with me.  She turns it on, naturally, it shits its pants again.  She calls "IT Guy" and tells him about it.  He takes it, and WITHIN TWO MOTHERFUCKING HOURS has brought her NOT ONLY A NEW TOWER, but A NEW FUCKING MONITOR.  This motherfucking retard wouldn't do jack shit for me when I had that downy computer the year before but put someone with nice C-cups in my chair, and "OH YES, I DO FOR YOU PREASE RET ME TOUCH BEWBEUS"

So I already hated "IT Guy."  Then, the internet starts shitting its pants.  Reason, "IT Guy" decided that a proper networking solution was to hook up a bunch of D-Link routers across the school ON THE SAME MOTHERFUCKING CHANNEL, and have EVERY FUCKING DEVICE IN THE SCHOOL connect wirelessly.  These are not commercial grade routers, these are home routers.  So, you have 10+ devices on one wireless router all working at the same time, of course.  I had complained for two years that this was a piss poor solution and that he needed to run network switches and commercial routers across the school.

Finally, 2 years later, I come in to find "IT Guy" has finally wired the school with what I suggested 2 years prior.  However, "IT Guy" wired the Korean department's computers and made sure they were connected.  The English department?  He just plugged the ethernet cable in and never verified connections.  Just told us, "you're on your own."  "IT Guy" also left a bunch of LAN adapters on my desk.  Why?

BECAUSE THE MOTHERFUCKING ONBOARD LAN ON THE MOTHERBOARD OF THESE FUCKSTICK COMPUTERS NEVER FUCKING WORKED!  So he dumped them off on me, so instead of prepping lessons, I spent A WHOLE MOTHERFUCKING DAY tearing apart 5 computers, putting in LAN adapters, and putting in the manual IP configurations.

Notice I said all day.  This simple process should NEVER take a whole day, right?

Heheheheh...fuck "IT Guy," and the horse he rode in on, if it isn't already dead for having come into contact with him.

I was finishing up the last computer (I did mine first), and "IT Guy" walks into the office, goes over to my computer, goes, "아! 사용하네?!" (Ah! It works?!) and...get this...TOUCHES MY TOWER!  Note that I didn't say that he touched a button, the mouse, the keyboard, the monitor, or ANY FUCKING MOVING PART WHATSOEVER!  No "IT Guy" merely PUTS A FINGER ON MY MOTHERFUCKING TOWER and my computer shits its pants and BLUE SCREENS!  He then shrugs, goes, "안하겠지." (Guess not.) and WALKS THE FUCK OUT OF THE ROOM!  HE.....WALKED.......OUT.....OF......THE ROOM!  After desecrating my fucking computer!

It took me 2 hours to get the BSOD to stop happening.  When I finally got that, NOW THE LAN "IT Guy" GAVE ME WON'T FUCKING WORK!  I had to tear down the computer again and REPLACE THAT!

The next time I saw him, I said the following to "IT Guy:" "이것을 보고 있나요? 너는 다시 가볍게 치면, 저는 너를 입에 뚫고 네 입에 뒤볼께요." (You see this?  *Pointing to my desk.* If you touch it again, I'm gonna punch you in the mouth and shit in it.)

"IT Guy" hasn't visited my desk since.  Just when we were bonding, too.

You can notice why I was already ranting about "Koreans are the Charlie Browns of the world, everything they touch gets ruined," now.

"IT Guy" touches my computer, and it takes me hours to fix the Blue Screen of Death and all the hardware that fucked up.  Dumb bitch touches the remote control of a heater, and they have to replace the entire unit.

So, update on the health front: The doctors diagnosed my friend with osteomyelitis (bone infection, and serious one to boot), and he will now have to stay in the hospital for 6 weeks getting antibiotics through an IV.  My aunt is scheduled for surgery tomorrow at 2.  This is particularly not a good surgery for her.  It's going to go in through the stomach, and she has had a dozen hernia repairs that failed that left her stomach basically a muscleless crater.  She had one just after I came back to China this year, where the doctor literally had to reconstruct her stomach muscles by stretching out what little muscles she had left there across her abdomen.

Any surgery involving her stomach is a nightmare.

Make sure you do all the opening quests to earn free cash/packs. Unlock each hero by beating the practice AI as the hero you want to unlock. Then beat each one under expert AI, and unlock another set of gold. Then do your free arena, which leads to free packs. Then you can start doing your daily quests. I can help you make decent decks with what you have, and if you wanna screen share I can help you draft your arena halfway decent and walk you through at least getting 4-5 wins or so

This is very early footage, so there's still a lot that could change. Early footage of SF4 had jumps straight outta KOF, they were super fast, but in the end they decided to go with significantly slower jumps. It's possible they make the opposite choice here.

Post by: Pimp Willy on December 18, 2014, 10:20:09 am
Any chance at just upgrading to a bigger mobo? That shouldnt be too pricey.

Ok so get this. Getting my kids up and ready this morning. 4 year old wandered into our bed overnight, got him some clothes and he wants to dress himself, ok fine. Go to get my 2 year old out of his bed (still a crib), hes awake.

"Good morning" I said to him

"Good Morning Da Da" he said. Really cute, he doesnt usually say that but hes picking up new words and phrases every day. His hand is firmly down his pants. No surprise, both my boys basically sleep with a hand on their junk. But I noticed a stench in the air.

"Did you go poo poo?" I asked him.

"No!" he said. He doesnt usually poop in his diaper overnight, but if you let him sleep too late sometimes he does. Normally I get him up at 6:30 because mom leaves for work at 7:00, but since shes off for winter break, this is closer to 8:30.

I pick him up, and his hand is still down his pants. I try to take it out, but he fights me on it.

"Come on, bubba, let me see" and I yank his hand out.

His entire hand is covered in diarrhea poop, up to about his forearm. He was wearing a long sleeve brown shirt, and the poop has seeped into his shirt and up his arm.

Fuck.

Had to rush him to the shower and throw him in with clothes on just to clean him off.

The joys of being a dad.

I guess each boy wants to give me one awesome poop accident story to remember them by lol

Kids do crazy things sometimes, but at least they make a lot of memories.

Also: I alwasy thought getting a new mobo meant you have to get a new cpu as well. Anyway, if I decide to keep the video card I'd definitely need a new case; I realized that the card is also too tall for my case's width.

Pretty damn close.

포즈
띠꺼

(Reasoning:  The "r" in Forge, in Korean's ears, sounds almost silent, so it will never get transliterated.  You have to put the double "d" sound at the beginning of the second word or else it will be spoken as a t sound instead, and the same with the "g" sound in the second one, it ends up sounding like a k.  Also in the second word, using "eo" instead of "e" is the correct sound, the "e" sounds like ay, and no need for the added syllable to make the "r" sound.  In loanwords from English, that eo ending implies an r at the end.)

Now that we're on the subject of Asiatic languages, I'm thinking of finally tackling Japanese.  God help me.

But he wasn't a good guy who saved the day.

He was a pathetic wretch whose greed overcame Frodo's attempt at redeeming him, which, ultimately, was Eru's mechanism for the world's salvation.

Were it not for Frodo's kindness, Gollum would never have been there, at that moment, after Frodo had gone beyond what any mortal could do, to himself fail, and ultimately fall into the volcano's heart, destroying the ring.

It was Eru's grace, for Frodo's sacrifice, that caused Gollum to trip.

All the pieces of battle were put into play, all the battles fiercely fought, both of the body and soul, but it was mercy that saved Middle Earth.

To be fair, I maintain that I didn't spoil anything.

Peter Jackson did.

The entire trilogy takes a colossal shite upon the very central theme of Frodo's character.

...

Character's character?

If she ever sits down and reads the source material, she'll be far better off than seeing the last movie - despite Viggo's awe-inspiring performance as The King, rallying his troops.

The immediate above ought to serve to obfuscate the truth of the movie more than enough to compensate for the called-out pseudo-spoiler, n'eh?

Good on you, my brother. I had to look up what that was. Fidelity is like showing up to work on time: it's very important and the people that can't do it need to be fired.

This feels a bit like when my wife worked second shift for a few months. Only it's not as devastating, because it's not long-term.

That sounds a little dramatic, and I'm sure it is. But we haven't spent a night apart in years.




I've only spent a handful of nights apart from my wife in the past 14 years, mostly in the past 2 years when I travel for business and even then its only like 3 days at most. The only other times was 1 time she went to san francisco overnight, and once when I went camping with my dad for a weekend

So I was the white meat in a Korean LDS sandwich on my flight to Seattle. I can't even make this shit up. Cute girl to my right read some kind of Mormon missionary training book the whole way. Look to my left, guy fills out the address on his immigration card as Provo, UT.

Ho boy.

I didn't even get home until like 4AM on Tuesday.  Every single flight was delayed.  My flight from SLC was delayed due to the plane not arriving on time, then even when we were about to take off, it started spitting snow so they had to deice.

You mean like, 10 (1010) would be 2, since it has 2 active bits?

You could set a variable to 1, and do an & comparison against the 32 bit integer. If the result is 1, you have an active bit in the last digit. Then bit shift (>>) the bits over by 1, and do it again. Everytime you get a 1, increase your counter by 1. Loop and do 32 checks. Or more efficently, loop until the number you're counting is 0.

Thats the most brute force way I can think of
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: ForgeDigger on February 12, 2015, 01:49:57 pm
See that's the logical way to do it, and that was my first idea.

But unfortunately, this lab is silly and limits me a lot in what I'm allowed to do. For example, I can't loop or do conditionals and I'm limited to 40 operations.

The way you're describing (without a loop) needs more operations than that because you need at about 3 operations per bit (shifting, &ing 1, and adding to sum).

So I'm trying to think of there's a way to do it so I can maybe look a 2 bits at a time. Doesn't seem very plausible though because while 01 would be counted correctly as having 1 active bit, 10 and 11 would both be 1 off...

Man this lab is annoying lol

Managed to get it finagled to where I can fly out of Indiana. Thankfully I was still close to the IN border.

They wanted me to fly out to Laguardia. Seriously, send me to the northeast during this blizzard? I know NYC != New England but still. Not a fan of gambling like that.

Without looping, that seems like a dumb restriction. Apparently this is known as the hamming weight and is useful in cryptography and general error checking in transmissions?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamming_weight

this seems to be the most straightforward answer

int pop(unsigned x)
{
    x = x - ((x >> 1) & 0x55555555);
    x = (x & 0x33333333) + ((x >> 2) & 0x33333333);
    x = (x + (x >> 4)) & 0x0F0F0F0F;
    x = x + (x >> 8 );
    x = x + (x >> 16);
    return x & 0x0000003F;
}

Though understanding exactly how it works is pretty daunting lol, its using a few preset patterns, and comparing against those, and adding it up along the way.

Lol.

PC was hacked, forever and a day, due to the AH.

Now that there are seasons, there is a fail-safe, of sorts.

Not that it matters.

Because the OTHER fail-safe completely and utterly ruins the way the game should play (All Items Bind on Account).

I don't play with people I don't know, though.

This includes pretty much every other game as well - unknowns suck.

This particular instance was when some tranny dude (Dont know the specifics, pre op post op no op, but some guy that now goes as a girl) went to a tournament, had a private issue with some player in the lobby of the hotel (old friend asking about his dick or something), and decided to get a front page post on SRK about how the tournament fostered an environment that supported hatred and how we had to change DESPITE the fact everything that happened took place in the lobby/hotel rooms of the venue, and not in the tournament itself, and MP went ahead and demolished the arguments nicely

I havent really played a fighting game since USF4 came out on PC : ( except for Dive Kick with my family/kids lol

Street Fighter V is looking MAD sexy, right about now, though.

Zombie Charlie~Urien Franken-Nash is kind of meh, but his moveset is off the charts cool.

It's like a better Rugal.

And that Bison hint is nice for everyone who had their hopes dashed that he might not suck in future iterations of SFIV.

But FUCK paying for a new stick because "fuck you, player - reasons.", and fuck paying to play online.

Nah, the main issue boiled down to (and one that was maintained on the SRK thread) was that a female indie dev slept with a journalist at Kotaku, who covered her game and was giving glowing reports on the game.  Her boyfriend, who felt spurned because she was still dating him while she was doing this, outed it on reddit.  Apparently the writer at Kotaku wasn't the only one within the game journalism sector that she had slept with, and several had ties to her game.  That sparked a backlash about ethics in game journalism, to which sites like Gamasutra, Polygon, and Kotaku responded by posting articles attacking their core audiences of gamers, instead of admitting from the onset that there was a conflict of interest involved in the reporting.

As tensions flared about it, the developer herself, as well as Anita Sarkeesian, and some other female indie dev that no one had heard nor cared about prior to the issue taking a head jumped on, claimed misogyny, and claimed they were getting death and rape threats in order to discredit the issue.  If there were any, there were few and far between, but on several occasions both Sarkeesian and that latter dev have been caught red handed with fake threats and posting threads themselves to shitstir the situation to make it look like everyone was out to get them because they were women.

That's Gamergate in a nutshell for me anyway.

The issue PW was talking about is something that happened on SRK frontpage that I called the editor-in-chief out on and got a lot of shit for.

They are even providing sticks.

Because, y'know, there actually are a ton of players who understand that Madcatz and Sony crept into their beds, together, with the intent of ass-raping them through their back pocket where their wallets lay, and, understanding this, cock-blocked those micro-penis paedophile child-fuckers (reiterating for force of outrage) straight up.

Actually, the way they designed Charlie for SF5 leaves in the possibility that Guile could be there as a more simple form, just for the Charlie/Guile confrontation.  Which isn't bad IMO.

Which also means Deejay will be skipped for yet another iteration of SF.  Not in SF3, not in SF4, not in SF5.

Fuck, I've been saying since Super that they should've taken the invulnerability off of ex sobat so he could crumple into ultra from it.

That's how you balance it.  He would still need a bar to hit confirm ultra, he's no more or less potent than Chun at that point considering she also had a one bar confirm into ultra.  He still has the same mobility, if not more, around fireballs that he had in ST and he was high tier there.

I don't get it.  That shit was stupid.

My first time getting really drunk was last night. I was at my buddy's house, and his girlfriend was there. We started drinking, and I didn't notice it until I tried standing up. I never put that much effort into standing straight up. I stumbled over to my computer and tried to play Dota 2. I fucking sucked at it. Tried to play Killing Floor. Sucked harder. Tried to get into his girlfriend's pants. Didn't succeed. I didn't want to actually do it, but if felt okay. Apparently I become a damn savage when I drink, because they said I pulled my dick out multiple times and asked them to have a threesome.

Part 1 of 7: Overview
Overview
Blood poisoning, also called septicemia, is an infection caused by the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream. Although it is commonly called "blood poisoning," the infection actually has nothing to do with poison. According to Dr. James M. Steckelberg, a Mayo Clinic internist, blood poisoning is not actually a medical term, but medical professionals often use it to describe septicemia.

Septicemia is associated with infection elsewhere in your body. It is a serious condition. It can progress rapidly and cause death. Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect septicemia.

Holy shit dude, plz don't die.

ok so I'm playing in Angelpalm's Duel to the Death game on myth-weavers using Pathfinder (D&D) rules.  after like almost 2 weeks of reading rules and shit I am finally about to wreck face to my first opponent (or get wrecked myself).  Anyone who is interested can read along in our duel thread here: http://www.myth-weavers.com/showthread.php?t=299074 (http://www.myth-weavers.com/showthread.php?t=299074)

Synopsis so far:  I made a knight type character with a horse and a lance, along with a cleric cohort who has buffed my weapons with all sorts of magic enchantments to increase attack bonus and damage.  My opponent is some invisible, flying tentacle creature (wtf).  And the last turn that I just submitted has me attacking him for 49 damage if I successfully hit him (my attack roll was 27 so it's looking pretty damned good).

edit: and fuck...he countered it.

3rd one's by far the wackiest I've ever seen. I haven't personally played it, but the learning curve looks a little steeper than the other 2.

The first one's fairly simple: check on the 4 animatronics with your camera, check your doors, and close your doors if there's someone there, meanwhile conserve your power (which is your only lifeline). This one capitalizes suspense and tension.

The second makes things a little bit trickier. There are now 9 animatronics that belong to 3 or 4 different classes, each of which have to be dealt with a certain way and some of which can't be dealt with after a certain point. Power isn't as important in this game, as it's only really needed for your flash light. They took away the door mechanic and replaced it with mask that fools only some of the animatronics, and agros others. Meanwhlie, there's a music box that needs to be kept in check for the entirety of the night, which makes micro-managing far more important than using your resources wisely. In contrast to the first one, it focuses more so on panic through the number of things you have to keep track of.

This one... I'm not entirely sure how to classify it. There's only really 1 animatronic, but the others make cameos as "hallucinations." From what I've seen this one focuses around trying to keep the 1 animatronic away from you by luring it into another room with a sound. However, your 3 necessary security guard systems (your camera feed, your audio device, and your ventilation system) are all old as dirt and fail constantly, so you have to spend time restarting them while the one guy slips away. Meanwhile, the other animatronics can jump scare you (though they don't kill you) and, in most cases, cause one of your systems to fail.

They're not bad games or anything, but if you play them enough gameplay sort of gets mechanical, if you will.

So I'm probably buying a new laptop within a month or so.  No way I'm getting a desktop like...ever.

Anyway, if someone is good on specs, here's what I need it for:

-Light Gaming, nothing more taxing than Hearthstone and maybe Ultra
-Streaming, I want to be able to stream the podcast and Hearthstone
-Watching Movies, I'm sure most every GPU out now can handle HD video
-Plus general web-browsing, text editing, graphic editing stuff.

What specs am I looking at for this?
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: ✰Alpha✰ on March 05, 2015, 08:22:47 pm
Ehhh, not looking at anything too special there. Only need like 4GB RAM and a basic quad-core processor (maybe even just a dual-core). Depending on how HD you want your movies though, you might have to get some better specs purely for a 1920x1080 resolution instead of the 1366x768 found in cheaper models.

Let's say I got an i7 2.9GHZ + Geforce 840M, that should ultimately suffice?

Or should I be looking at like quad core AMDs?

Or could I even scale it back from there?

NVidia has 'dat switching tech, where the system goes integrated for everything that doesn't need intensive GPU usage, AND you can tweak the setting to whatever you want.

However I can't find them over here and if i could they'd be at a premium compared to over there. Even MSIs are higher than i can afford at this point.

As far as Falcon, it's not just the fact that they use good products and have a good warranty that even covers overclocking, but the aesthetics of their cases. I'm not sure what else would outrank them. Know you're gonna say sager though.

Here's how we would do it if there was any question on how to do it.

We could get on Zoom, have Alpha or someone set up a second computer rig with VLC running and screen capture that as that account's video source.

Then we can all watch and rip on the movie being watched.

Jesus Toast Theater is an idea I could get behind. SAD and I would watch TV, usually Naruto or DBZ, while almost exclusively making fun of it and it was great, I can only imagine how fun it'd be with 5+ people.

Your avatar is cool, whenever I force myself to see it as it was intended.

But most of the time, I just see some dude fellating his shadow.

FUCK. MISSED OPPORTUNITY.

So one of my best friends, whom I lived with for about 2 years, his brother keeps posting shit on Facebook and Instagram about cosplaying as a mermaid.  Apparently there is a huge community for this.

Trying to explain why I didn't like Dragon Ball Xenoverse to my buddy, who is a die hard DBZ fan. I told him that the combos were boring, the missions were boring, and there was no depth imo  compared to the fighting games I play. He said all 2d fighters are just reskins of street fighter 2, which "sucked anyway."

I just left the conversation.

I've had to do the same with some of my friends as well. They're perfectly fine people, but there's this little switch in their head that dictates they say stupid things about fighting games sometimes. Stupid things like "It doesn't take any execution to play Melee".If you think Melee doesn't take a goddamn large amount of button presses and precision then you're being willfully ignorant.

I was semi-ignorant until I actually tried to play it with people who knew what they were doing. Then I decided 'Yeah, this might take more skill than I gave it credit for'. Then I lost, repeatedly. I refuse to go to the school smash bros club though, cuz they're all obnoxious pricks.

Melee is hard as hell to play, because it requires L Canceling nearly everything. People who say smash takes no skill are pretty ignorant, but that still doesn't make it a GOOD game. But if people enjoy it, more power to them, I enjoy watching some of the top matches when its at Evo, especially the year with items on, but that was the era of All Brawl and how we on SRK pushed for items in the game and ended up creating a SRK and Smash rift lol

It's not just L-Cancelling, there's wavedashing, shield dropping, out-of-shield options, all sorts of crazy things. That doesn't make it a good or bad game automatically, but the game is very technically difficult, and it bugs me when people try to deny that and say that it is extremely simple.

The following should be an IQ test for joining the internet:

Quote
A horse walks into a bar. The bartender asks the horse if it's an alcoholic considering all the bars he frequents, to which the horse replies "I don't think I am." POOF! The horse disappears.

This is the point in time when all the philosophy students in the audience begin to giggle, as they are familiar with the philosophical proposition of Cogito ergo sum, or I think, therefore, I am.

But to explain the concept beforehand would be putting Descartes before the horse.

the issue is, I dont have 100% guarantee it works lol. It happened so late, that I had to put a proxy bid in (I put it at 700 and  got it for 500), in the pictures its working fine but a lot of the other auctions they had they werent working. I wasnt around live for the bid to confirm it was working. But yeah, insanely good, they tend to go for under 1k at the auction; some relaly pristine newer version ones went for 1600, which even then is totally worth it for what I got.

They sold a CvS2 cabinet last auction for $250, wish I would have snagged that one

I only payed $340 for it, to begin with, because I bought it during that sale Target had last year (bought specifically for Diablo 3 and Bloodborne).

So paying less than the tax to rent it for a full year was a great look.

It basically takes the moba, strips out all the lame, antiquated shit, and modernizes it. Honestly, I hate mobas, but I love heroes of the storm.

What's antiquated about most mobas that HOTS fixes?

Most of these are just my opinion, but here goes

1) 1 map. Heroes currently has 6 maps, with a 7th coming next patch and an 8th already teased. The 1 map thing made sense when it was a warcraft 3 mod. Not so much for a full fledged game. and I dont just mean like different visuals, we're talking different sizes, different objectives, 2 lanes vs 3 lanes, etc etc. Each match can widely vary just based on the map.

2) Item shop. Items were a holdover from how warfcraft did the item system, and were used in that game. Having an item shop is way convuluted and a huge source of confusion. I really felt overwhelmed trying to learn the item shop, how item X and item Y combined into item Z, and how you could only hold 6. Heroes of the storm uses a talent system, as you hit certain levels you get to unlock talents to alter your skills; personalized way more than a generic item system goes. Like as a seige tank, you can increase your attack range by 30%. Or as stitches, your hook can now hook friendly targets OR 2 enemies at a time, or double the range. Maybe your basic attack slows now, or your heals give cloak. Very interesting choices to make ,and very simple to understand.

3) Last hitting, carries, etc. Nobody is weak for the first 90% of the game and then unstoppable the last 10%. Nobody is forced to fear stealing kills, to worry about stealing farm from teammates. Your team shares experience globally; if your team is level 10, everyone on the team is. From the tanks to the supports. Theres not really that carry role where you can reach a point of being unstoppable; sure there are heroes with specific talents or builds that carry well late game (like azmodan, for instance, or Tychus, or Nova at level 20) but nobody feels weak for the whole game.

4) Farming. Theres no gold, just experience. This means the game starts off with battles, and they continue the whole match. Theres no period of avoiding enemies, avoiding pushing lanes, trying to sneak in a last hit here or there; the game is action packed from the start. They just elimanted the entire boring part of the game, which leads to...

5) Long  games. Mobas tend to be 40+ minute affairs. Heroes of the storm averages 20 minute games, 20 action packed minutes. And game that are a steamroll can end in 10 minutes; no more knowing 5 minutes in the game is over and forced to play a 40 minute game.

These are the highlights I think, compared to regular mobas; being able to play all my favorite Blizzard heroes is just the icing on the cake.

On points 1 and 2, this is just speaking solely about league because dota confuses me:
1) League has 3 (4 if you count dominion) different maps, and 4 different game types (ARAM, draft picks, blind picks, and dominon). Sometimes they introduce whacky game types for a limited time too, like just recently they had a Nemesis draft where you would pick your opponent's champions for them. There was also URF (Ultra Rapid Fire) mode a while ago, where skills had something like 90% cooldown reduction and didn't cost any resources.

2) I don't see how that's very different from an item system, the effects are basically the same. You start with something small and it snowballs into something greater, eventually. You can think of items like skill trees if you wanted. Take Youmuu's Ghostblade for example: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Youmuu%27s_Ghostblade. If it were a skill tree instead, you'd need 2 points in long sword to get brutalizer, 1 point in brawler's glove to get avarice blade, and then you could get the actual final skill.

That was actually insightful, PW. I knew about the global levels and such, but not the lack of items or multiple maps. I don't really mind the single map on Dota, and I only play on Summoners Rift in League, but the HOTS is radically different. I'm actually gonna check it out soon.

Also, there are multiple modes in Dota, but the most played ones are Captains draft and all pick.

If it were a skill tree instead, you'd need 2 points in long sword to get brutalizer, 1 point in brawler's glove to get avarice blade, and then you could get the actual final skill.

But each of those sub items cost gold, not experience, and items are not equally weighted. And also, it's so generic; any hero can get those items and they will act the same. In Heroes, all the talents are unique (well, not all, but most are unique; theres a handful of  common talents shared that may or may not eventually be replaced as it comes out of beta)

Heroes doesn't have a skill tree. You get a talent at level 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, and 20. Each level gives you about 3-4 choices. If 2 talents share a level, you can't get both; this helps to balance things too, as you can say "Well both of these are REALLY good, I wish I could have both." You can't, whereas in league or dota you could just buy both items if you saved up enough.

Also, you don't get to have really lame stuff like every hero getting a blink dagger(Flash I think in lol is just taken at the profile level its not even an item right?), different heroes have different escape mechanisms (or none at all, as a drawback for the hero).

Also, the maps are different game types right? You either have a 5v5 3 lane map, or a 3v3 2 lane map, or 5v5 on a 1 lane map.

Heroes is always 5v5 regardless of the number of lanes.

From what I gather, any serious match is always played on the 5v5 3 lane map.


Right now, its still beta for sure, but theres a few modes; Quick Match is basically you queue up 5v5 against random players (based on an internal MMR rating). You pick whatever hero you want, you get matched with other players ,and you play vs another 5 players. Theres no separation for solo queue and grouped queue, though the game tries to match you with similar structured teams when possible, the lower player pool sometimes doenst make it work. You can have mirror matches here.

Once you reach level 30 and own 10 heroes, you can enter Heros League. This is a 5v5 draft system; when its your turn to draft, you pick from one of the heroes you own. Each hero can only be drafted 1 time for the match. But each player is responsible for their own choice. The hero pool is still small, so theres no bans currently.

Heres some quick differences just showing the different maps, and why they're so cool

Cursed Hollow ,standard 3 lane map. Tributes will spawn at random intervals; if you get 3, you "curse" the enemy team. All turrets stop shooting, and all minions spawn at 1 hp, so you can really push the lanes hard. Fighting over the tributes is super important; but you give up xp to leave lane to take them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcvCYDCixDQ

Haunted Mines: 2 lane map. Every so often, a lower level "Mines" opens and you can enter, to kill the monsters for their skulls. Once all 100 skulls are collected, a boss spawns for each team; the more skulls you get, the stronger yours is.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pbl1mcbue14


Blackhearts Bay: 3 lane map, the top 2 lanes are very close and the bottom lane is much further away. There are neutral camps that drop coins, along with each mercenary spawning coins when captured. Chests will also spawn at mid and bottom lanes, which have 5 coins in them and can be spawned when you kill it. turn in coins at a central point, and if you turn in enough the pirate will bombard your opponents base. However, if you die you drop all your coins, so you have to be wary of getting ganked.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9v4IN_maD4

Also, each map has a unique narrator that speaks, which is kinda cool and fits thematically


The newer maps are cool, because even the neutral creeps are being uniquely themed to it, like on the new sky temple map

Cabbage is great though, if shredded raw, or stir fried.

Theres different levels Im sure. Im not some anti-vaccine, whole foods, no processed anything nutjob. For me, it just means to alcohol/smoking/drugs. Hell I dont like to take medication unless its 100% necessary; when I pulled my quad last summer, I spent a week lying around in pain unable to move before I got anything for it.

Some people go no caffeine too, but I love my caffeine too much. I think the ultimate goal is basically trying to keep bad stuff out of your body. I've never once had a drink, smoked, any drugs, etc my entire life. In fact, It wasn't like I heard about straight-edge nad was like "Thats what I want to be!" it was like "Oh, yeah that applies to me."

Not the aggressive "Im gonna beat up anybody who drinks" type, but I definitely am not gonna hang around people drinking or anything, nor am I going to allow it in my house, etc etc

I guess I'd just rather enjoy the systems right now than have a bunch of people already posting rumors about the next gen already.

Given the lack of titles of the current gen, shouldn't we be focused on how to make the current gen sellable?

I have a bad history of buying consoles just for 1 game, and the games weren't even that good.

My first console that I ever bought on my own was a 360. I was in 5th grade, had sold a lot of my gamecube classics for it. And what for? I had to play the new Sonic game. At first I loved it; I could get past a couple glitches here and there, the long load times, and as a 10 year old with a Sonic obsession, I thought the story was amazing. Then I got to the first mach speed section. Completely ruined the game for me; after I realized how stupid that section was, I realized how awful the rest of the game was. I was sorely disappointed that I had spent so much on so little.

Then comes PS3. I saw a playthrough of a game that was sorta old: Heavy Rain. Somehow, that's what made me want a ps3. Even though I already knew the ending to a game that was basically a movie, I was willing to buy a console to play it.

Sony going with the Microsoft Windows-style jump around to the good version, even this time skipping a version number completely? You don't like Playstation 4, ok, then How about the New Playstation 599USD!

Still using PStriple for Yakuza 5 and Dragon's Crown. Lv85 ish, and have never played with anyone, ever. Putting  a damper on the whole deal since this is a very good modern updated sidescroll beat em up Gauntlet style 4 player romp, and the guy I picked from the start, is who I'm actually sticking with to not timesink this shit. He wrecks house and is so mobile anyway, the Dwarf. Toss his axe for 20,000 damage AoE. Jump double jump 3 air attacks, then air throws or a final down attack multi-hit, and my gear has really good bonuses, like -30% damage when in the air, STR+25, -20% damage taken?! Then pick up the axe after the cooldown is over and repeat the process.

Haven't seen many Blu-Rays yet even after getting this console in Fall 2013, now ready to pop in Alien 35th Anniversary, got the box set for $6 and 6 shipping, off amazon. Comic reprint is cool but small. I've only seen Cowboy Bebop's Lobster Fridge episode a few times and American Dad's parody twice, now for the real thing.

When SC2 came out, I dove head first into it. Pro matches, watching the koreal scene, the GSL was fucking amazing, and I loved playing it -- watched the Day 9 daily, practiced, and managed to get to platinum despite me being fucking terrible before!

But... the game stressed me out. I would get afraid to play ranked matches. When playing, I'd be so flustered my entire body would turn red. My wife would get concerned looking at me. And I'd generally just have a really, really stressed out time and not a fun one.

Its too bad. The whole 1v1 aspect, and the whole "not knowing what the other person is doing" can really fucking mess with me.

That said, if you want to get some games in sometime, I'll be down for sure.

Also, new expansion comes out this year (Legacy of the Void) I believe, and its supposed to be a standalone experience where you can play that and get all 3 games worth of multiplayer content I believe; campaign you'd definitely want to buy though, because its fun.

Plus I play protoss, so the third expansion is the fun one for me : )

I've only ever played vs bots. I tried 1 game vs people and felt lost, and like a terrible teammate, and decided the game was too daunting to get into. So I gave up on it.

Trying to get into it, and because I'm trying to get into it, looking for relatively new players to join me in feeling like derps. From my LoL experience, your first matches should be surrounded by people who you aren't afraid of messing up with. And since I'm in college, all the players around here have been playing since at least freshman year, so I'm a little behind the curve.

League is often considered easier than Dota, from what I've heard. Haven't played in a really long time, but I do remember that the item system worked differently; something about not having to back to buy items. Also there were way too many characters to choose from straight off the bat, and since I had no idea what any of them did, I was sort of frustrated when picking who to play.

Although, it could've just been weird because I was playing during the beta. Maybe I should try again sometime.

Post by: drwill439 on March 24, 2015, 12:46:12 pm
League is different than Dota. League has more objectives and things to try and change the tide of the game, while Dota is mostly team comp and building. That's the reason last hits are super important in Dota 2, because being underleveled normally means you're gonna struggle a bit to make up the gap. There's also ways to keep the enemy behind as it pertains to getting xp like harassing and denying creeps/towers/hero kills or splitting lanes and such.

I can alllieviate some of these issues. First off, character picking. There's a mode called Limited Heroes that cuts the pool to 20 heroes, all of whom are pretty basic. Great way to learn the game.

Also, Dota has multiple regular shops (one in each base, one on bot lane and one on top lane) that make building stuff easier than league. There are also couriers that you buy to carry you items that you buy while on lane. I normally don't go back to base for the first 10 minutes unless it's really necessary.

League has the free recalls, which are cool, but the timer on them is fucking forever. Dota has a 2 second teleport with a small delay then a 60 second cooldown.

That's just a few of the differences.
I'm up to play some teaching bot games if anyone wants.

Mike and Skinny Pete were probably my favorite characters. I think Mike was a subliminal warning to the viewer about Walt. If you do bad things for a good cause, eventually the bad things dont feel bad anymore and you just keep doing them.

Jane was a fucking cunt.

From my extremely limited knowledge of him (Pimp's video), Mike seems like a really good character. Straightforward motivations when everyone else is hatching insane plans and playing everybody off each other.

I agree. Scenes with children make me feel uncomfortable.

Today some school organization was hosting an Israel Block Party, and from it looks of it, the party actually seemed pretty sweet. Across the street, people were bringing in signs and Palestinian flags to protest it. I walked past it on my way back to my dorm; I think that might've been the first time I've even been close to a protest environment.

So why didn't Badger talk to Saul about how pplice entrapment lead to his arrest? That is illegal. Police cannot approach people to purchase illegal services or act in a way that will cause someone to break the. Hence why prostitutes arrested in street stings are usually approaching the cars to solicit services and get pinched, and why there was a lot of flack about pedophile sting operations. Granted, a lot of these kind of people need to be off the streets, but there is that loophole that looked ridiculous when it failed to get pushed.

I don't think thats really entrapment, seemed like a pretty normal sting to me. It wasn't like he had to go out of his way to commit the crime, he was already holding a felony amount of meth.

Plus, Badger is the one that brings up cash. Up until that point, he was just asking if he was selling.

I seriously don't consider this entrapment, though I figure saul could at least try to argue it if he needed to.

Post by: XthAtGAm3RGuYX on March 27, 2015, 11:00:01 am
No that's entrapment. If a cop is conducting official police business without his uniform on, and you ask him if he is a cop, he is legally obligated to tell you that he is a cop. There is a workaround for deep cover stuff though. Shit, you know how cops set speedtraps with their radar guns? If the patrol car is not in an area where drivers on the road can see the police cruiser first, and that cop pulls you over, that is claasified as entrapment.

Timeline of Machine:

Ordered 2 saturdays ago
Delivered on tuesday. Dead on Arrival.
Realize it was just blowing fuses.

Research all I can; looks like maybe I need a 10 amp fuse? But Im afraid to put one in because if it doesn't, it could cause harm

Today, have some downtime at lunch. Open it up. Unplug everything. Power up... fuse doesn't blow! Start plugging in stuff one by one... nothing blowing! It must be the marquee that I had to unattach just to fit in the garage door. Straighten out all the wiring, plug it back in... fuse doesn't blow! Machine boots up!

... To a CDR error. Find out its the CDrom. Check the disk, make sure its fine; disk reads fine in my computer. Open up board, fiddle with cdrom. Not working. Swap it out for a backup CDrom I have. Still not working.

Fuck.

Wait, maybe that CDRom was bad. Switch it for another CD-ROM. Now realize, when I say switch it, I mean unplug all these wires, unscrew a bunch of screws just to get access, then have to put it back each time. Ugh.

But it works! Machine boots up! Now theres a flash card error.. fuck, those can be the worst to fix.

Check out the flash card, its just loose! Plug it back in!

It fully boots up! I have music! (left speaker is out, but I will work on that). Hook up the pads. Mostly okay; 2p right arrow has one sensor completely gutted and broken, 1p left arrow seems like it needs some work and gets stuck sometimes.

But now, its all about making it work nicer, not just work period. I was afraid of not ever being able to get it to work, and here it is, working thanks to some critical thinking and some minor computer and electronics knowledge : )

Woo hoo!
Title: Re: So what else is going on?

Yeah, but I also thought cops legally could not walk up to an individual and propose to buy drugs or sex from an individual, also could not hop online and pose as a kid or adolescent and PM older guys to set up sex encounters. I believe that they have to be approached by the perpetrators and thus solicited before they can make an arrest.

I mean, not that this is info that would ever be pertinent to me. I'm not a drug dealer, a hooker, a pimp, or a pedophile. I don't even live in the states now so if any of the above were true, the laws are different.

Just what i thought.

Talisman is fun so long as the game can continue at a good pace. But when you have iffy matchmaking (How many times was it last time, 4 DCs from Sajin and 1 from Alpha?), cards that require multiple players to do something, and people taking a long time for their turns, it gets slow. (Unfamiliarity with cards and situations more than the present company being particularly sluggish)

That, and there's no "Auto-Lose" button once somebody has three times your stats. I think even Forge and I have only technically finished two games, most of the time we all just quit once someone has to leave and it's obvious who's going to win.

Post by: XthAtGAm3RGuYX on April 05, 2015, 01:36:46 pm
I don't think I understand.

A continent is always a large expanse of land. North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Antarctica, and Australia. To say that Australia is not a continent, but an expanse of land within a completely different continent is just retarded. Continents never include what is under the nearby water. That classifiies as part of the ocean from what I understand. Unless he for some reason wishes to place Australia as some kind of random as island, I dont understand his basis for saying that.

EDIT: Actually I think the tectonic plates of the Earth's crust play a determining factor in what constitutes a right and proper continent. Not sure. Didn't really care about Geology that much in High School or whatever the fuck that is. Either way I'm abotu 90% certain Australia is a continent.

I took 2 years of Spanish in middle school, so I wouldn't say I'm fluent or anything. I might even be more fluent in Dutch (somehow).

Thing is, languages that use the same alphabet as English should be easier to learn using stuff like rosetta stone and what-not. What Rosetta Stone can't teach you very well (and what I'd rather take a class in) is how to write/read in a new language.

So going off that, an Asian language is definitely a high contender. I had the same thought about Chinese, too. Mandarin being one of the most common languages on the planet definitely puts it up there. Also the fact that I've had about 3 Chinese TA's that speak broken English definitely shows that there's some truth to your assumption, Willy. lol

Then I start to think if it'll really matter at all, and if I should just pick a language that's fun. Which'd be Japanese.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: jasonC on April 10, 2015, 10:53:41 am
Friends of mine who are in business/finance/economics all say Mandarin is a must for them because China is looking to emerge as the next big economic giant (if not already).  Even if you aren't in finance, if you will go into any sort of international marketing or project development, I have heard that Mandarin is the way to go because, yea, a billion people speak it.

But, "practical" is really dependent on what you are going to do with it.  I know some guys who are in marketing for oil companies, and for them, they are trying to learn Arabic.  My company may want me to learn some basic French because we're trying to move into Ontario for some projects.

You also have to consider if you are even going to use the language anytime soon.  If you learn one because you think it's practical, but not actually having fun with it, more than likely you will forget it if you don't use it within 2 years.  But, if you chose something fun like Japanese, and end up having fun with, it'll probably stick more in your head.

Also, Japanese is way easier to learn than Chinese reading/writing, so there's that.
Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Raevyn on April 10, 2015, 11:09:52 am
Japanese and Chinese are some of the hardest to learn, mostly because of their written language. There's well over 2,000 basic kanji, 5,000 for people who are particularly well read, but the total (including ones that are no longer used) is 50,000. I would recommend learning one that you are more likely to use. If you know Spanish, I'd suggest learning French or Portuguese (if you live in North America).

Learn Chinese if you're willing to dedicate multiple years to it. It will take you forever to learn.

You can learn the basics of Japanese pretty fast if you apply yourslef, but the end game is the same as Chinese.

My Chinese is still pretty bad and I've been here about 4 years.

So I just got locked in at Li-Ning.

I went shoe shopping today, because my gym shoes (which I've owned for 4 years) are falling apart. I had went to Li-Ning yesterday, didn't find anything I particularly fell in love with.  Left.

Went to Anta (another athletic apparel company) today, and found a decent pair of shoes.  Tried on the model, liked it, told them I wanted it, and bought it.  I came home, and despite it being the same printed size as the model size, they were too big, much bigger than the one on display.  Went back to Anta, tried to get them to give me a smaller size, and they just kept giving the "I'm an idiot" gaze before repeating robotically, "But that's the same size you tried on," before I eventually facepalmed and told them to give me a refund.

I went back to Li-Ning, with the determination that I would not make this night of shoe shopping a bust.  They close at 9PM.  i arrive at 8:30.  At 8:40, after trying on 4 pairs, I had another in my hand, when I heard the second floor door lock, and saw black.  They had locked me in and shut off the lights.  I run to the store, screaming "Open the door!" in Chinese.  They did nothing.

I finally started screaming barbarically and shaking the door violently, and they finally came up and let me out.

I don't think I need new shoes anymore.

Every time I tried to find something I didn't like about the series, I'd think about why they didn't do it like that and it'd make sense and be totally justified. That and they did an annoyingly fantastic job at cliffhangers at the end of the episode.

The story was incredible, the characters were well developed, they tied up most of the loose ends and I can't find many bad things about the series. Definitely one of the best series' I've watched in years.

The only TV shows I watch regularly now are Revenge and Survivor, Revenge obviously being closer to Breaking Bad than Survivor. Other than that, I haven't seen a series that compares to Breaking Bad since Death Note (and Danganronpa, but the game's better).

https://www.reddit.com/r/thebutton/

reddits april fools joke is hillarious. So theres this subreddit, with a 60 second counter on it. If a user presses the button, the timer resets.

The user who pressed the button gets a "Flair" attached to their name, with the time they pressed it. Each time block has different colors; purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red along with grey for "non-pressers"

Its been going for 13 days now. Never been below 30 seconds

Oh yeah, each account can only press it once, and only accounts that existed before it went live can press it.

theres a huge religion/cult/class system that has developed from it.

If you are a 59 second presser, you're just seen as being dumb. aka "Oh, whats this button? Lets press it"

The lower your number, the better you're perceived; except of course for the people who fight about the colors.

they're anxiously awaiting the first orange to show up.

And to top of the hillariousness, some dude made a Chrome extension that colored the button according to what color you'd get if you pressed at that time, and a lot of people installed it. But he put secret code in so that at noon on april 11th, the plugin presses the button for the user.

A ton of people got the button auto pressed for them, lol.

Shit is hillarious.

The only thing worse than being a 59 second presser, is being somebody who clicks 1 second too late (like, timer is at 33 seconds) and having the timer reset and getting stuck with 60 seconds! haha

They even have sites set up to track the color of the most recent pressers.

Its actually a genius social criticism.

And nobody knows what happens when it reaches 0; or if its even legit, and not just some sort of fake computer algorithm designed to rile us up.

By all, I mean me, the TO and his assistant, and one other guy who had to take a taxi. The people who confirmed they were coming just...didn't. Nothing is a bigger piss off than that.

Having trouble getting my head around MKX. Played a bunch of matches against my brother, and every time he did something that looked unsafe for me to punish, my attacks wouldn't come out fast enough. This was my first time playing the game though, so I might've just been using the wrong moves to jab.

Family life stateside is driving me nuts.

Mom is complaining of a migraine that hasn't went away in over a week.  Went to the ER middle of the week, they gave her a shot of a painkiller, did nothing.  Ran a CT scan, found nothing.  Went to her doctor a day later, and they prescribed prescription painkillers which are doing nothing.

Seriously, WTF?  Freaking me out.

While I'm not a doctor, per se, I am a clinical laboratory technician for the National Guard, which still means that I'm not technically qualified to answer this question. However, if it were me, I'd go and get a second or even a third opinion. Things like week long migraines aren't normal.

I might be getting sent on a Lang's course to learn East Timorese soon. Personally I'd rather learn Russian.

Fuck SRK.
I just saw this.

Russian is a PITA, surprisingly one of the hardest languages to learn in the world. Reading and writing isn't too hard, but verbs, nouns, adjectives change based on gender of nouns, and subjects. Not even different forms of the same word like Spanish, but completely different words altogether.

I mean, if you want to, it's entirely possible. But you may want to be fluent in vodka before you try to become fluent in Russian.

I just got back from a staff appreciation lunch (which was during my shift so I got paid to eat). And holy shit am I on a sugar high. Or low... I'm not sure. Cause I'm usually crazy when I'm sleepy, so it'd make sense if it were a sugar low. Iunno. Anyway, I've released the beast. Who wants to mess with me, huh? >:C

I should really name this state I'm in as some sort of alter ego. Like "Oh shit, I didn't know X was here". What do you guys think it should be? Wiggle Cat? SugarDigger? Deforge? Heteroskedasticity?

Also, I'm in the running to get this job online tutoring for CS. $10 an hour (which is a whole $2.25 more than I make now) with extremely flexible hours. Yay for me. It'll definitely make up for the fact that there's no work-study if you don't attend university during the summer. But I was thinking about next semester; since I do practically nothing during afternoon shifts, maybe I could double dip and make 17.75 an hour. :OOOOO

Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Missing Person on April 23, 2015, 06:55:58 am
PS4 support on PS360+ is limited to 8 minutes then it locks out, and you have to unplug the stick and plug it back in.

Akishop has to make some sort of Bluetooth device to handshake with the PS4 in order for it not to lock out.  So far, they haven't yet.

Yeah, Chimp is basically the Cthulhu and Imp combined so it autodetects between 360 and PS3.

Somebody sanity check me here:

log((XY)/Z) = log(X) + log(Y) - log(Z)

right? Or do I need more sectioning off, like this:

(log(X) + log(Y)) - log(Z)

The first equation is correct.  You do not need more sectioning off; that would be pointless.

So back to back to back street boys?

...I think Fuzz's bad jokes are rubbing off on me.

Finally settled all of my classes for next semester. Wanted to get into Social Psychology but they blocked it out for Psych majors only without listing that as a prerequisite. So I looked for an "easy A" class. Found a drawing class from 6 to 9 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays. It wasn't optimal but it was something. Apparently it didn't count as a Visual/Performing Art credit, so it'd take up an elective too. Then they cancelled the class. I asked my friend for a suggestion, and she said to take Advanced Calculus with her for (apparently) a science credit. That didn't sound too great, but whatever, at least I'd have 14 hours. Then that was waitlisted. Somehow having a cancelled class sitting in my schedule while waiting for an Advanced Calculus class on wait list didn't seem right. I guess Intro to Western Music is cool too...

Fuzz came to visit me for a lunch date* and let me pick where we'd go. Fun fact: Fuzz is extremely picky when it comes to food, and is pretty darn stubborn about not wanting to try new things. We went to a Chinese Barbecue place. He was a real good sport about it, but the only Chinese food he remembered liking is Orange Chicken. The menu was not very descriptive and most of it was in Chinese anyway, but apparently the orange chicken was spicier than either of us had recalled. Neither of us are very good with spicy food at all; I decided to challenge him to a contest to see who could eat the most pieces before we left.

TL;DR - I beat Fuzz at an Orange Chicken eating contest.

So I got kicked out of a yoga class tonight.

I was about halfway through. Yoga hurts. Like seriously excruciating, I think I broke something and may already have gangrene excruciating.  My back muscles separated like a Hollywood couple. This may be a good thing, I'll decide that based on how much ibuprofen I need tomorrow.

Then it happened.

Someone farted. I promise it wasn't me. But I'll be damned if I didn't have to fight not to laugh.

And failed. Which drew the complete ire of the instructor, who then kicked me out.

Its a hard choice. My life was much easier during school for sure, but the ability to do whatever I want is totally worth the trade off. I think its actually kids that is the real thing that takes up my time, without kids I could basically do anything I wanted. So yeah, I'll take what I have now over school.

Don't get me wrong.  I love my family and would do anything in the world for them....but that's the thing; you HAVE to do everything in the world for them.  There is no more "me" time and you end up being playing in the quitters pool for HoTS.  There is no more going to Evo and being irresponsible without hurting more than just yourself.  Maintaining a career/job is now a necessity not a passion, just to pay the mortgage, and school tuition, and food for the next 20 years.  Your own life is on hold, and you are locked in, whether you like it or not. 

I semi-kid about things like HoTS and Evo.  In reality there could be more socially responsible things you could be doing, like volunteering for Red Cross, etc as part of disaster response, or building dams in Cambodia. 

Now it's just making sure the kids don't grow up all screwed up.  I DO NOT want them to be stream monsters.  God, no.  This is one of the biggest reasons why the death of arcades was very sad to me.  It's depressing to the point of me not wanting to teach my kids how to play fighting games lol.  But of course the bigger one is already interested in Marvel lol. 

Advice: Never have kids.

I kind of want to start a parenting thread lol stories, tips, advice, planning, etc.

Its not so bad. For a long time, I'd walk around with this heavy weight on my shoulders all the time, and I'd constantly be worried about what I had to do for school. Write this paper. Code this project. Read this book.

For a good 2 years after graduating... I would still feel this pressure on myself, and then I'd remind myself "Oh yeah I dont have any more school!" and it'd be lifted.

I can go about my day, without a constant overhanging stress of everything I had to do. It was just work. I could leave it at work, I didn't have to bring it home (very often). Which was nice.

I just remember in college, I'd feel guilty about doing anything fun because there was always something I'd supposed to be doing.

Now? No way. I can enjoy my free time.

Now the problem is, between kids and family, that free time has dwindled!

 Iget from like 7 am to 9 am, and like 9:30 pm until I go to bed. And that night time is usually dedicated to time with the wife

Those feels are real.

For any free time I wanted to spend playing video games in college or hanging out, I had to make sure I stayed up later than normal finishing work or working ahead or getting up earlier than normal to do so.

I still have the recurring nightmare - the one where you've skipped class all semester and know you've got a paper due at the end of the term that determines your grade. In that dream I always come to the conclusion I'm screwed because I know jack squat about the class to even be able to write the paper in the first place. The class I need to write the paper in determines whether I get my degree or not. I hate that dream, and I've been having it in the 11 years since I've graduated college.

I'll take adult life post school any day. After I graduated, on a football Sunday I'd turn on the games at 1pm and go to sleep until the 4pm games. Wake up, cook gameday foods, pig out and go back to sleep until 8pm night games. Grab a snack, get ready for work the next day.

I don't have a lot of free time like that, and having kids definitely takes away that free time. I still love my freedom and responsibilities more than college. Besides, going to class sitting in boring lectures, not having any time to work to get money because of school work, and living off fast food dollar menus sucked. Need I mention in art school hardly any of us showered during finals week? We'd sleep in the labs, wear the same clothes 2-3 days straight.......

I don't even really remember going to any real parties in college - like the ones you'd see on TV.

For me, high school was 30x better than college. College is 4 and a half years of my life I've brutally tried to forget.

Halfway to the arcade one day, I Realized I had a test... I was like "Fuck!" and ran to class. Turns out the teacher postponed it one week only I didnt know because I never went. So I buckled down and actually went to all the classes after that lol.

I havent had those dreams in awhile.

I still dream of my one job I had during college, managing the arcade. Its always the same, I show up to work after about 10 years of not being there, and they say "no problem" and I get right back to work checking out all the new stuff that happened while I was gone.

Probably because deep down I wish I could do something like run an arcade I guess. Oh well, I got 1 game so far, that should be enough!

My recurring nightmare is that I've registered for classes and have to go back. I'm always filled with despair, questioning my decision. Then I wake up and I'm happy. But it's 4:45AM and I have to get ready for work. Then I'm marginally less happy.

Finally back home. I think I gained 5lb. I'll know better tomorrow. So much drinking. So much.

Getting married is like having kids: most people shouldn't do it.

If you don't see the merit in it, don't get pressured into it down the road. Divorce rates are as high as they are because people do things because they think they're expected to, instead of doing things because they want to, or should.


Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: descuffphoenix on May 08, 2015, 11:54:40 am
I never really understood the point of marriage besides tradition.

There are some extra stuff attached to marriage as oppose to if you were just bf/gf living together and religious reasons. Obviously the key part of marriage is joining together two humans to be recognized by law. This come with some benefits: The choice to make critical health/death decision, some government benefits, adoption process being much simpler, extra nongovernmental benefits, etc. Marriage had became so ingrained in our cultures that it added more value to it over time. If I recall correctly there are over a thousand benefits that come with marriage.
Of course there is always the negative side of the coin with divorce. With your Property being split, negative affect on children, and some psychological effects on the spouses.

But call me old-fashioned or whatever, but even with the high divorce rate I don't see myself dating a guy for more than 5 years or 8 years and not even considering a civil union or marriage. If we're basically going to stick with each other for the rest of our lives, then why not take it up a knock and make it truly official. It seems like a lot of these divorces are happening because people don't like to work out differences, go into marriage too fast or too young, or simply have an unrealistic idea of marriage.

It's the fucking head of the elementary department.

Every year I get snubbed though.  I'm talking about teachers coming out with a shitload of loot, bags upon bags of goodies.  I, at most, get a candy bar, if that.

But every year they have a ceremony where students come and pin corsages on the teacher's at the beginning of the day, and we have to stand up in front of the entire school to have this happen.

This year, I stood up there, and every teacher but me got one.  I was absolutely humiliated in front of the entire student body and teachers.

Turns out the head of the elementary department gave students orders not to give me anything this year.  This is the same bitch who accused me of being too stupid to blow a whistle two weeks ago.

Seriously, I'm pissed.

So as I was going to bed last night, xmen was on; the one from 2000 that kind of kickstarted a lot of the superhero movies.

And holy shit, it hit me... this movie is 15 years old!

And when I was a kid in the early 90s, and my parents would talk about movies/shows from the 70s, I'd always just imagined it as so long before and no relevant

And yet... thats exactly how my kids feel about shit from the year 2000.

Weird to wrap my head around.

Like a quote I saw, that 70s show took place closer to the 70s when it aired, than we are currently to the 90s. Hence, they could release a "That 90s show" and it will be about the same as that 70s show coming out. Wow.

Nice. Very. Happy Birthday! In...advance I think. Fucking round earth.

I hear you MP. Sometimes I think about the heights of intoxication I used to be able to reach. You get to some next level when you can down 15 beers and two Long Islands in a night without getting sick or passing out.


Title: Re: So what else is going on?
Post by: Missing Person on May 21, 2015, 07:45:26 pm
I personally don't want to hit that level, and have never really wanted to.

Like, my dad was an alcoholic.  I was straightedge up until I was 22, simply because I did not want to run the risk of going down the path he went down, because I saw what it did to him.

Thankfully, I've never really felt controlled by alcohol even after I started drinking.  I always have had a reason to drink that wasn't that life sucks, drown my misery, and I've always had a limit aside from like three instances.

One was at a work Christmas party at a bowling alley.  The owner of the McD's I worked at at the time would not shut up, and I finally was like, "I can't take it," and ordered Foster's after Foster's just to make her tolerable.  I then went Bowling, drunk.

Next was 3 years later in 2012, and I was back Stateside, and my friends wanted to see me drunk, and got me loaded on jaeger and coors, and had pictures of me with my pants down around my ankles pissing.

Then the last time I've ever been drunk was while I was running the South Park game and the Russians had me drinking soju and vodka, and I wound up throwing up for about 8 hours.  I think that was enough of a warning for me to always keep limits.

Had drinks with a former work colleague in Seoul over winter, and I think I stopped at 3?  Enough to have both of us fairly buzzed, but enough that I was able to be in sound mind and remember the night, and not have a hangover.

I was mafia. I got silenced by a third party, and my lynch came up. I was tied with another player. The last vote on me came from a dead player, and for some reason it still counted, the RNG pointed to me and I died. On top of that, the civs have a role where if they lynch a mafia, the game skips night phase entirely. I hate games with secret roles. I wouldve voted to save myself if I wouldve known that the dead guy's vote would count. It doesnt help that he voted the day after he died as well.

Civs have the powers to skip night phase and vote while dead?  Sounds too civ favored already.  The game could be technically be won without allowing mafia any kills whatsoever.

I told the GM my issues with the game balancing. He said that the night skipper isn't OP because its no different than medic getting protect. Except that being medical doesn't give you 100% chance success rate. Plus its a 40 man game with 6 maximum Mafia. I'm surprised we have gotten to day 10 in that fucking game.

Every single civilian has a role in a 40 man game. There are four third party players who has untold abilities and win conditions. There are 5-6 Mafia, and night phase gets skipped if a Mafia is lynched. Roleclaiming is not allowed and you aren't allowed to out somebody else. I was going to tell the thread that we nightkilled a well trusted player who was actually a horseman before I died but it wasn't allowed. That game is civ favored as fuck.

Bible Mafia on the syndicate. Its an alright but Epi needs some lessons in game design and team balancing. We managed to clip about 10 civs before one of us died though.

Went out to LA for prom, chaperoning with my wife (who iss an english teacher), was pretty much right in downtown. Pretty cool backdrop, I took a video with the la skyline behind the dance floor. Took place in a movie studio. But as I was driving there, I was like "I'm driving through streets I've only ever driven through in GTA"

Anyhow, cleaned up nice for prom

Fuck no, there are some awesome people (from the ballot) that got in. Fucking Spencer, Joe, Keith, Woo and Kass. The only person I'm disappointed didn't get in was Carolyn, who was my second favourite last season to Jenn (until she QQ'd).

Well the voting pool for second chance was only for people that have played once and omg Carolyn should have definitely made it in!

When Jeff was standing over PG, Stephanie V and Teresa and said only one would make it on I literally almost shat my pants. Kelley W although I liked her on her season I was really surprised she made it on but PG is one of my favourite players from my favourite season and as long as she does well im happy.

@Souther I actually just got caught up with last season so its fresh in my mind haha

Well its still a pretty great cast all around I just wish Shane, Teresa and Mama C made it (maybe all 3 would make it to HvV2)

I just use Twitter for a random burst of thoughts and following announcement/fast news.

So today was one of the three cold days in Australia, so I decided to buy a new jacket to replace the one I've had since I was 14.

Naaah.

The shirt NEEDS the tone of the jacket, to complete the douche tone.

Those coupled with his natural colors, give the outfit double S+++ tier douche status.

With a heavily implicit exhaled vowel prior to the initial S.

The only thing it needs to tip it over into ST Akuma territory, is a pale lemon chiffon handkerchief peeking out of the jacket's chest pocket.

Maybe with JUST the tiniest hint of green, to completely cement the tack.

I agree there needs to be some kind of accessory.  I dunno if a handkerchief would be the right one, though.  Perhaps a scarf...grey/plaid, long but not wrapped around, to be clear it was not meant for warmth but for accenting.  Either that or jewelry or some sort - pinky ring?  neck chain?  bracelet of sorts?

I'm seriously mad at my community college right now.

I'm in a rush to print out transcripts for this scholarship/loan type thing. Dummy me forgot that I needed those for the application and that the deadline is in 3 days. I didn't think I could get anything in that time, but then the community college offered an online transcript that would come in within about an hour of ordering it. So I ordered it for $9. I was super psyched. But then I printed it. Apparently printing the digital copy makes it unofficial. Giant COPY watermarks show up everywhere. So now I have to hope that the organization I'm asking for money is okay with holding onto this unofficial one until I can get my hands on a real one. For another $9.

I mean, I guess it's not that much, and I didn't really except to be able to get my transcripts in time at all, but the fact that they gave me hope before they ripped me off just... ugh. >:c

It's BlazBlue all over again.

And people wonder why I stopped giving a crap about the series outside of spectating.

I bit when they quickly announced Continuum Shift, even bought Valk/Makoto.  Then IIRC they already had CSE announced BEFORE they released Platinum.

I was done after that.  I didn't buy CSE, laughed when hardly even months after CSE was out they announced CS2.  And now what, they're already announcing the sequel after CP?

And people complain about Capcom's release schedules with Street Fighter.  At least SSF4 was the last REQUIRED near full-price update in the SF4 series. (even then, it was only 2/3 the price of Vanilla.)

They added it in AC, I think, but it was such a narrow window, that it was practically still just throw-rejection.

The game still revolved around them.

GG is basically Throw: The Game, at its heart.

Adding any sort of real throw tech guts what it means to be GG.

Might as well change the name of the game while they are at it.

 Being a person who has never owned a home, i'm pretty much an expert on this subject. The answer is never and that's how its supposed to be. Some fat dude  is supposed to do it for you once a year on a specific day on the 12th month. No appointment necessary. If your worried about cost, don't be. It's pretty cheap. You simply sign a contract handing over your soul and agree to spending eternal damnation in whatever hell you may believe in.  If that is too much of a hassle for you, don't worry., he makes you sign it while you're sleeping.

That's actually one of my fears. I sometimes wonder if I just drop things because I'm lazy or the ADHD, and then my mind just enters a loop of self-loathing.

Plus I'm really scared of medication due to it. I... did not have good school years.

Well most don't really recognize ADD or ADHD as a real problem (I'm sure @Synonym would like to enlighten on that topic more.) On top of that it gets misdiagnosed like crap. But my father and sister have it, so genes may play a part. Maybe each case just reacts differently yo something.

There's this card game on Steam called Yomi. If you haven't heard of it, it's basically a fighting game, but with cards. I'm the absolute worst at explaining things, but if you have 10 or 15 bucks to spare, it's worth it especially now that steam has refunds.

I looked it over, the web version is F2p so you have to play the free rotation heroes or unlock them with gold, where the steam version has the original 10 unlocked (and the expansion 10 purchasable)

Flash Duel is on the web version for free, you should try it, its really quick and fun (I figure it translates well to web version)

Also I may pick up the steam version, add me on steam so we can play sometime

Earlier, at the gym...

I walked up to the leg extension machine, there was a woman just sitting there messing with her phone.  The following conversation ensues:

Me: Are you still using the machine?
Woman: Yes.

*I stand back and wait.  2 minutes pass, and she hasn't done a single rep, just playing around on QQ*

Me: Are you still using the machine?
Woman: Yes.

*I stand back and wait.  2 minutes pass, there is now a line behind me for the SOLE leg extension machine, and she STILL has not done a single rep since I've been there, and is setting her QQ profile picture while deleting shit off her cloud.*

Me: Look, you are NOT the only person here in this gym.  Either work the machine or go!
Woman: Stupid Guailuo! (Basically, the Chinese use this toward white people like white people use the word "nigger" to black people.)

She finally got off the machine, and started stretching to end her workout, while giving me the death glare as I work the machine.

Bitch, there's a reason why you're fat.  Fat doesn't melt off by going to the gym and sitting on your ass and doing the same shit you do at home, minus the racial slurs.

I once got stung by a bunch of wasps by playing around a nest I didn't know was there.  Repeatedly.

This was when I was like 6 or 7, and my grandmother had to sit me in a tub of ice water to bring down the swelling.

So I do have a very deep seeded fear of wasps.

My first year here, I walked to my classroom to see a class full of 5th grade girls running out screaming.  I stupidly walk in to see a few wasps and followed suit.

Changing subjects:

I just gazed over my 3DS collection, and came to the conclusion that, whilst perhaps not the most technically power system ever, it may just actually be my favorite system of all time.

It most definitely is, of the last 2 generations.

I've got 45 3DS games.

I think I had... 40 or so PS2 games, tops, at any given time.

Coupled with my 30-ish regular DS ones, I've never had a library anywhere close to this large, before.

I hope Nintendo keeps making handheld systems.

And doesn't completely fuck up my love for them with Ami-Boos. (Yes, French. Yes, Weeaboo. Yes, FUCK Ami-Boos.)

No, it wasn't. PW said he was going to continue to call the opossum a possum, despite knowing that wasn't the correct name. I insinuated he was also the kind of person that would call a koala, a "koala bear."

The koala is another marsupial that is indigenous to Australia*, making my reply even more delightful.

Some of these trailers from e3 have my hyped.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOuulPw7Iro

this one looks dumb but also looks like something I'd enjoy. Elder scrolls has a hearthstone rip off that basically copy/pasted the trailer. Gearbox has a new borderlands style game (battleborn), that seems to be nearly exactly like overwatch (maybe not team based shooter though?). Fallout 4 has a ton of info out and looks hype.

The division looked worse. They were in a game, when another player party came up, tense standoff, then they helped eachother. Beat the mission. As the game ended, they called for evac, 90 seconds out. At 60 seconds, the one group decided to gank the other group for their loot. Shootout occured, 2 people are injured, 1 fine, the other group is dead. Guy that wasn't injured leaves group, and executes the other 2 people on his original team, then takes all the loot from all the people for himself.

Cid was the only semi-likable of the non-missable playable characters who didn't kill Sephiroth twice, as if he were the O.G. Eastman and Laird incarnation of Leonardo. And he was a dick.

The best one remains 6.

Honorable mentions to 4, 5, and the concept of 9 minus the omnipresent load times.

Also: eat another bag of Asian nuts and micro-penises, Squeenix, and die from mercury poisoning from the semen and smegma, already.

Nobody gives a single, solitary, sloppy sodomized sphincter sound that you are pulling Dragon Quest Heroes out of dat ass, much less whatever other plums might be in there.

Give us Dragon Quest VII and VIII on the 3DS, or just bleed out rectally, and die, for fuck's sake.

I want to go back in time, and smack younger me upside his head, and tell him not to waste so much time on the chore of acquiring golden chocobos.

But even younger me had sense enough to drop VIII somewhere on the first disc.

My maschosim only runs so deep.

To be fair to VIII, though, I also dropped XIII early on, like the taste carcinogen that it is.

I have not played parts 2 and 3.

I'd rather commit Seppuku, like a well-intentioned weeaboo.

The paradox being that only a weeaboo would play that shite.

My Final Fantasy order out of the games I've played, from best to worst are: 9, 10, 1, 7, 4, 2, 14 (if you count it), 12, and 3

I didn't enjoy 8 or 13, or get far enough to rate 'em fairly. I really need to play 6, but still haven't gotten around to it. I kinda agree that 7 is over-hyped, but is still overall a great game. Sadly 9 will never get a remake, but I suppose that one may be for the better. Chances of them fucking up my favorite game in the series is too high.

I hated FF7. Only played it when I bought the digital PS3 version because of all the hype, and I think I got up to some point where you cross-dress. The graphics being outdated didn't help, but the major deterrent was the combat system. Fuck any JRPG that tries to blend action with turn-based. There are so many JPRG's that I'd love to finish, but just can't because I can't stand the combat system (Ni No Kuni being at the top of this list, followed by Kingdom Hearts). Do it fully action-based (Tales), turn-based (Breath of Fire, FFX), or don't do it at all.

Yea, wasn't there the option to change FF7 combat to fully turn based?  I think I picked that option for the whole game.  It was in one of those.

For VIII, I only beat it cuz the girl I was with at the time wanted to watch me play it (for the story or whatever).  And then by replay, I only meant I wanted to explore how to gank the leveling system...by not leveling.

The only thing I'm remotely hype for from the Sony conference is Shenmue 3, mostly because the dream was legitimately dead. And it's not even a Sony thing because it's coming to PC. I'd rather them focus on FFXV, which looks amazing, than retread old ground with a remake.
Last Guardian can stay vaporware for all I care. It falls under the same umbrella as Half Life 3. When it's announced, I'll go "Cool" but I'm not gonna shit myself, buy a PS4, and wait patiently for it.

Not really.  There was a wait to set ATB to "Wait" if you are in a menu.  But it wasn't fully turn based.

I believe that option also existed in FF8, but I don't remember.

FF7's system was blotchy, I agree. Kingdom Hearts got more bearable as I got used to it. It's wayyy better in KH2.

Post by: DrWilgy on June 16, 2015, 11:55:17 am
I think the thing about 9 for me was all the characters and their themes being really strong and well presented. Story pacing, and character development throughout the game was solid. I can say that I liked every character in the game. The music in that game was really good and memorable. The settings were all very diverse and felt new whenever I made it to a different location, which was a reward for progressing in the game. Chocobo side questing in ff9 is the strongest out of every game. What other game requires the chocobo side quest to fight the big bad optional boss? The battle and ability system of ff7 and ff9 are actually really good in my opinion. It requires you to actually pay attention and scheme somewhat, while not being overly convoluted (ff8, fuck that system). The optional mini-game Tetra Master was meh, but I still had fun playing with it.

Nin10doh's presentation wasn't strong :( was hoping for some actual new content, but we ended up just getting starfox, and some things we already knew about. 

New Star Ocean looks cool. World of Final Fantasy actually looks good. Even though the art style feels like square vomited KAWAII all over final fantasy, It has the top down look of old games and I don't think Final Fantasy taking a DQM approach could ever be a bad thing. I think Sony and Square won E3 for me this year, as I'm actually considering getting a ps4 now.
