Me: "Can I spend $150 on this hobby thing?" Him: "It's okay, if I can buy a program for $20?" Sounds like a fair deal to me! May 31, 2019

      Folks, post on the forum to ask for help. Don't PM a dozen people in a big group conversation. I am LESS likely to help you if you do that.

      2 days of work, 5 days off. That's my kind of work week. Pity it happens so rarely :( Gonna be a tough 2 days though.

        Ooh, one of those really dense days where you work two shifts in a row or something? That does sound pretty tough. Still, 5 days off does sound very pleasant. You can do quite a bit in 5 days, even if it's a lot of goofing off.

      Lost the stone from my engagement ring. Getting it replaced and resizing both rings will cost more than they cost to buy 23 years ago!

        Oh that's terrible, but a new stone will be shiny. Try to enjoy the renewal more than the pain of the loss of the original stone.

        @WhiteW - don't know. Just realised before going to bed the other night that it was missing.
        @Mrs_Allykat - not only will the new stone be shiny, but they're going to shine EVERYTHING up for me :) I don't mind getting the stone replaced - I'd be devastated if I lost the actual ring though.

        Aaah. I figured a machine would be faster since that's how it's usually done for store bought clothing, but I guess the home versions aren't as reliable. Maybe I'm slow because I was just too used to using a crochet hook by the time I first tried knitting. Or maybe it's because I have to use the same type of dexterity with both hands.

        I had apple pie as a snack and homemade pot pie for dinner. It was delicious. Glad you get to join us in the tradition next year! It's not common to celebrate it, btw, just something fun the really geeky do. My family just happen to all be even more geeky than me.

      So police are asking people to stop calling 000 (and probably 911 in the US) because facebook and instagram are down.

        HexMozart88 I'm not surprised.

        And speaking of 911, I actually called it once, on accident. Now I'm sure people are wondering "How do you call 911 on accident?"

        I was actually calling a friend and to my shock 911 answered. I told them I was calling a friend, I'm not sure how this happened.

        Then my sister figured it out. My friend's number was something like xxx-xx9-11x-xxxx

        I'm not shocked. I used to work for a phone company and the number of people who thought they could NOT live without a phone for 24 hours was shockingly high. They didn't care that everyone else in the state had no service due to a lightning strike, they wanted their phone NOW.

        Once upon a time, we had NO mobile phones, NO internet, NO facebook/instagram/whatsapp. Yet we still managed to live. I AM glad about mobile phones now - much easier to get help if something goes wrong with your car on a long trip.

        On the other side I really enjoyed Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Doctor Strage, Thor: Ragnarok and both Guardians of the Galaxy. Everything else was just "good" to me.

        Awesome initiative by previous political party to have fibre internet to every house in Australia, watered down to a pathetic fibre-to-the-node but the same old copper line the rest of the way, when the opposition got elected, and their powers that be don't have a clue.

        I am told it's all working, and we were without internet for less than an hour. It all seemed very straightforward and painless.

        @Sharm you should know all about it, because we just had a discussion recently about overwritten and aliased methods. I meant to alias a method (do the original stuff then some extra stuff), but overwrote it instead (just do the extra stuff, but not the original stuff). So all the default stuff about setting up the sprite didn't happen.
