  • Lately I've had fun thinking about useless life advice and just as useless mottos.

    @Poryg, I did not know that you make a game too because you constantly create more plugins and coding. You are probably a busy person.

    @Kupotepo Currently I don't create anything, I'm barely capable of any reasonable brain activity. My focus is taking a bigger and bigger hit.

    @Kupotepo, it is that sarcastic lol. It considers ambitious by my standard.
    So, after a years long hiatus I decided to try to compose a MTG green/blue EDH decklist. Let's say it didn't go well.

    Nevertheless, what I'm most angry at is the core set. It always served as an introduction for new players. Easy to understand instants and sorceries. Creatures with no effects, only mana cost. And may the best one win. Nowadays it's quite overwhelming for a beginner.

    The main problem is that it's a very slippery slope in terms of who wins and who loses. When people win, they get free prize packs, which in turn gives them better cards, which in terms leads them to build more expensive decks for free, which in turn leads to them winning tournaments, which in turn leads them to more prize packs... you see where I'm going with this?

    But we cannot give all equal stuff. Nobody would try.
    So, someone who apparently has a well paying job and sent me just a hi two years ago suddenly asks me for one grand USD for speakers.

    @Poryg, the currency rate is that the reason. If I exchange USD or Euro to a local currency, it is a lot of money.

    @MushroomCake28, yeah the old trick of Nigeria royal member scam.

    Lol Omni. Reminds me when I requested hot materials from a scammer and she told me she was a Christian and would never do something impure like that (guess stealing is fine with African Christians :D).
    I finally begun to conceptualize my dream strategy game. The features I want there make it very difficult to balance though ;_;

    I want to eliminate these cheeses. Paying tribute will only be an option if the stronger side is at war, otherwise he'll just attack you and it'll be up to you to try to find your allies, since relations won't play a role in the game.

    The AI will judge based on profitability. It will be more prone to ganging up against the strongest guy to try to curb their strength, like in Master of Orion, although it won't threaten you two times before attacking.

    I intend to reduce the number of techs available. Due to modular ship design there also won't be any Corvette or Dreadnought class ships, so the AI won't favor certain tech tree.
    Wow! The mom of one of the scammers is from Chernarus... What a coincidence! The scammer has a mom that doesn't exist.

    I don't lose that much time over that to be frank, I do it when I'm having a break. Which has been for the last two months practically anytime I wasn't at work.
    So, after cutting myself with a dull razor deeper than I'd like I bought an electric shaver. Looks like I did not choose well though.
    When you say "I hate *insert any large group of anything*, somehow people take it as if you'd hate the entire group. Why can't they...

    because the opposite word of like is dislike? not hate?

    But to be honest, people tend to treat even the "love" figuratively... But say "hate" and you'll receive dozens of concrete examples, sometimes one more ridiculous than the other just "to prove a point".
    Seeing how children react to me being myself/or realistic, sometimes it makes me question why people exaggerate their behavior around them.

    Probably because they are boring, or at least think they are. Dont understand it though, all it does is make the kid feel you dont take them seriously, and if you dont then why should they take anything you have to say seriously either?

    Well...I wouldn't say exaggerate, but rather sometimes we clown around because kids, especially little ones, find silly acts and physical comedy hilarious. It's joyful to make kids laugh with stuff that would get you only eye rolls from adults. :p

    I sure there are many ethical lawyers. I am just being mindful. I see the loopholes of the justice system. I watch too much forensic files lol.

    @Kupotepo - The court are in favor of rape accussers who're mad enough that "unknowingly" do damage to the Justice System just like Ebay protect sellers hard enough that there's a lot of leakage of scammers that get by. My guess is that it's gonna take a few more decades to fix unless something drastic happens.

    Today I found an amazing fact. Compared to outdoor running treadmill feels like a waste of time. Literally.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    The lack of air isn't an issue, since there's always enough air. The only thing that's lacking is air circulation. And even running at 29°C outdoor feels much nicer than running at 25°C indoors, because without circulation the air around you heats up to uncomfortable levels very quickly.
    Nekohime1989
    well it doesn't take you anywhere... so i agree treadmill is a waste of time.

    Someone should make an exercise machine that turns the mechanical energy of the exercising into electricity to charge stuff with. Then it wouldn't be a waste anymore.
    My smtp did not work. So I tried to purchase one online. But every smtp seller only targets marketers, ;_;

    Essentially I can't use that just to send emails, because every recipient has to grant explicite permission and every email needs to contain a valid unsubscribe link.

    The problem with nodemailer is, it still needs an SMTP.
    I may be weird, but I don't like to hear chatter unrelated to exercise in a gym. And I hate laughs. Okay, I hate distractions in general.

    Btw. @Dreadshadow I can absolutely understand if people hang out and chat in the gym as long as they fulfill these criteria:
    1. Volume. Keep it down. Don't laugh.
    2. So not waste time. I've seen people take an easy rep and then sit there for five mins blocking a machine.That's like three reps.

    Do they have yard sales in your country? Because if they do you can get a home gym for less than the cost of a years membership at most gyms if you do a little looking around.

    Almost got ran over by a car. Lesson for you kids, don't cross the street when you can't see clearly. The driver couldn't see me either.

    You always need to observe people on the road. Most of the time, they are too stupid to be driving.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Well, the problem wasn't my lack of observation. It was that I crossed the road somewhere where it was dangerous. Usually it's safe, because it's not clogged up. But when it is clogged up, there's no way I can see or even predict the behavior of cars thanks to the stupid road system there.
    Poryg

    It was a good lesson. Next time I see this situation, I'll cross the road at the traffic lights instead of risking my health or life.
    In few days I might try to set up my own SMTP. Only for sending emails, not receiving, so hopefully with an online tutorial won't be hard.

    Well, thanks guys for your tips, although I'm not sure I'll use them well... I know very little about server related stuff, for example I don't even know the difference between a local web server and a server accessible through www. :(

    @Poryg Well, if you want to learn the difference read up on LANs, WANs, NAT (Network Address Translation) and port forwarding. Also www. is just a standard/generic subdomain. Not all websites use www.

    I'll try my best to stay at the current work for at least this year... But what I know for sure is that I won't be there after that summer.

    And since the daylight is increasing, it's more and more difficult to sleep even in my days off. I have increasing occurences of five hour sleeps in my days off. Which doesn't help the situation at all. So I think I'll be there throughout winter, but leave before the following Summer.

    @Poryg, telephone scammer is super funny. First he speaks with an indian accent with English name. Next week, he impersonated and speaks with female Chinese accent with English name. My goodness the scammer has fun with using Google Voice.
