  • Walked away from my computer to get changed. Came back to find my 2 foster kitties playing on my desk/keyboard. They had dimmed my screen, disconnected my wi-fi, turned on airplane mode, and attempted to download something from the forum. I'm sure there are more surprises in store.
    Wanted to watch a movie, but hubby said it's 3 hours long and would run too late. So we didn't. Then he came in an hour later, "do you want to watch a movie?"

    I had to preorder. Even though their website said they had them in stock, when I asked, they only had them for customers who had preordered. $450 but no games afaik. On the phone they said "we don't know when our next order will arrive" but in person it was "we're getting a delivery about every 2 weeks". So hopefully by the end of this week ...

    Binge-watching bread making on youtube. Wish it wasn't 4pm Sunday afternoon - now I have to wait a week to make anything!

    Making your own bread is pretty easy. Some tips (you might already know) :
    - have patience! Really the most important thing xD
    - cover your hands in a bit of flower before kneading to prevent a sticky mess
    -when kneading use the palm of your hands not your fingers.

    Anyway that's it from captain obvious lol

    So ... uh ... this weekend I have to cut my husband's hair. He searched long and hard - highest mountains, deepest valleys, across vast oceans. All hairdressers are now closed. So it's me.

    Doh, don't worry. Now that we're all shut-ins waiting for the apocalypse to take us all. You'll get plenty of time to practice, and who knows maybe you can buy a new chair/stool from a friendly wandering merchant. How many bottle caps is one of those these days?

    I don't think merchants would wander too far (or be too friendly) if they had to cart chairs or stools around with them everywhere.

    They'll use pack Brahmin to lug it around, or whatever the equivalent is there. I'm imagining a two headed "Big Red Roo". I'd call it a Roomin... but someone might try and eat it. No! Bad crazed Wasterlanders, Roomin is not food! No! No eat! :kaolivid:

    Social distancing is great, apart from trying to work from home while the guy up the road now has ample time and apparently the only way to fill it is to ride his dirt bike up and down our street all day :(

    Well, in our country people are more mindful of others, even on the roads. I can't say I've ever seen people so willing to let pedestrians through as they are now.
    If you post asking for help, and half a dozen people try to help you, it would be nice for you to come back and say what the solution was before having your thread closed. And maybe say thanks.

    If they didn't come back here, their thread would still be open. I'm referring to the people who ask the mods to close their threads because they have an answer.

    haha - okay, to rephrase, if they post a question and they don't keep bumping, we assume they no longer need an answer :p
    Hubby has been a stay-at-home dad for over 10 years. Finally got a (casual) job again at the start of March, began his training. Today, work says "we're concerned about social distancing. Don't call us, we'll call you." That one pay was nice.
    Internet down 3 times in 3 weeks. NBN tech discovered we'd been hooked up to a faulty node. After fixing, our speed is now 4 times what we've been on for the last 13 months!

    Getting so much spam lately! I'm sure my (ex)Telco sold my email address along with millions of others. All the spam is offers suited to US residents. I'm not a US resident. Guess that was a waste of their money.

    Brave's pretty good, recently I switched to just using Linux (Mint), the default browser turned out to be Firefox, and I've kind of been too lazy to look for alternatives yet. But I've got a whole lot of add-ons setup to make it difficult to track me, and of course by switching to Linux I removed that spyware/virus that is Windows 10. :LZSwink:

    @ImaginaryVillain On the "dark web", also called darknet, sites outside of it are referred to being clearnet sites.The term is often used to warn other darknet users that a link will direct them to a clearnet site.

    Makes sense really, I mean if you're really that desperate to stay anonymous, it probably doesn't help to load up Youtube... Not that Youtube actually works with Tor, since it disables 90% of the stuff that makes Youtube function. Honestly I just found the whole dark web boring, reminds me of the regular web but with less features.
    Was going to spend the whole weekend researching and writing. Internet was down most of yesterday, so I couldn't. Today I'm sick, so I don't want to :( One more weekend without progress.

    For all the people who gripe about the RTP ... how much more loudly would they complain if an engine were released <without> one? :D
    If I recorded while I created (what I think is) a small plugin, would you be interested enough in the process to watch it?

    It is a solid reference if it has a commentary. If not, probably just an entertainment video. The question is which purpose?

    Also in gm you code from scratch, unlike RM which u copy paste and edit. So if u want it to be like in gm, probably code a custom scene would be better.

    It would not be a coding tutorial, just an over-the-shoulder look at how I pull something together. With commentary, bugs and troubleshooting, and with any luck, a working plugin at the end :)
    Love it when someone confuses "RPG Maker (or script/plugin) has a bug" with "I didn't set it up right and it's not working as I want (or gives an error)"
    "Your service has been identified as part of an outage. This is expected to be restored by 7pm IN SEVEN DAYS!!!" Guess I won't be around as much over the next week :(

    It came back on yesterday afternoon. No notification. Turns out there HAS been maintenance happening for a week already, and will continue for another week. Maybe that's where they got the date from. The NBN site said the impact should only be an hour, but it was probably 5 for us. So I'm back in action ... for now.

    The word "homeowner" has the word "meow" in it.

    Good luck pronouncing it correctly ever again.

    I've heard that there's some really dodgy stuff on mobiles. One such shady thing I've heard of is something that tricks you into paying for things using your fingerprint. I don't know much about it since I don't keep up to date with mobile tech.

    I went to install a weather app recently, and noticed that it was asking for access to my contacts and calendar. No weather app needs those to do its job properly. Installation cancelled.
