    @ATT_Turan That was a bit different in what we're dealing with here.

    If such a case managed to get attention and get its own rules in this forum, I assume that it happened quite often recently?
    Shaz
    Shaz
    Not "quite" often. Usually we see them as posts from new members in the approval queue, so we reject them and they never see the light of day. But we don't see when someone PMs members, and we don't have an option to reject and give a reason. Adding it to the forum rules is a way of letting all members know ('cause everyone reads those, right?)

    Spent the whole workday running repeated tests of old programs in one environment and new programs in another, simulating a month's worth of overnight processing. Had two more days worth to run, when I realised due to the way the commands are set up, I had been running the new version in both environments :(

    Is it strange that I have watched Free Guy 3 times and I still really, really want to watch it again?

    IF you're into gaming as to catch every reference on it, its pretty good, its realistic to the gaming world, and Ryan Reynolds being himself as always completes the cake, 2 watches myself and i enjoyed it fully.

    I'm not that into gaming - there's no way I'd catch every reference. And this is the first time I've seen Ryan Reynolds. It appeals to the nerd in me, even if I don't get everything, it's a fun movie, and he's a bit cute too.

    Most of his movies are pretty good and always with that sense of humor of his, the 2 deadpool movies were a blast thanks to him.

    And yeah i catched 90% of the movie's game references :kaoswt2:
    Sheesh! There's a lot of garbage on the forum today!
    I have 2 Asus laptops and 1 Lenovo. I can find 2 Lenovo chargers but 0 Asus. And I can't get ANY of them to the point where they have all the stuff I want to take on vacation with me tomorrow. Guess my desktop PC and monitor will be occupying a passenger seat. Again.20211106_162745.jpg

    Well, we went, we saw, we conquered (no we didn't - my son conquered - multiple walking tracks - I sat back and enjoyed the scenery). Ended up not taking my PC or any of the above laptops - just a tablet with a sudoku app installed. Just as well - after packing the car, there's no way a PC and laptop would have fit.

    Our son is very active and healthy. Vegan, cooks his own meals (has done for years now), and walks a LOT - used to be gone 3-4 hours a day when we lived out of town, just walking. I don't know where he gets it all from, certainly not from his parents! :D
    My brain is slush today! What happened to the Tech Support - All Makers forum? Did it disappear?

    I've had the same issue lately. It's actually been renamed to Activation Issues.

    ...lol why Activation Issues? Tech Support can encapsulate any kind of technical issues the makers have...not just activation. What?
    Shaz
    Shaz
    A lot of it was about activation. Tech support issues could be dependent on the engine, so they could also go into the Support forums (and I'm sure I've seen some that did, even while we had the separate Tech Support area)
    It's been that long since I wrote a plugin, it took me 4 attempts to realize it's != rather than #. In a 40-line plugin, 20 of those lines being documentation!

    Don't worry. I spent three hours going over my plugin. The text in a window just didn't show. And I tried everything! Then I saw the first func line.

    Code:
    Window_Compare.prototype.drawActorStatInfo = function(actor) { //Draws the status names
    
        this.contents.fontSize = Yanfly.Param.ShopStatFontSize; //Value is undefined-.-’


    I had, intentionally, turned off YEP_ShopCore. Forgot to remove this one line :(

    Someone posted a funny meme on facebook a week or two ago. I replied "It's true!" Today I got a notification that my post was removed for violating fb's "spam and misinformation" policy, and a "3 strikes and you're out" warning. I am sitting here, thinking of all the time I would get back and how productive I'd be, if they kicked me off ...

    My interest in Facebook rapidly waned as I stopped playing Mafia Wars so I think I average logging in perhaps once a year in recent years.
    Odd thing is when someone who has my email and phone number sends me a LinkedIn message to ask why I don't drop into Facebook occasionally to let everyone know I'm still alive.........

    Hahaha! The same happened to me. Hice una critica sobre el presidente de Brasil y automaticamente me salio una notificacion diciendo que estoy fomentando el odio y que si volvia a hacerlo de nuevo me van a cerrar la cuenta. I did a critizice to the president of Brasil and they say i was making a hate comment. The same happened when i talked about Trump,Evo Morales,Xi Jin Ping and Nicolas Maduro.

    That is why I never made a Facebook account. Everyone there is so touchy and anything could get you banned.
    Love it when people say "bug" rather than "I didn't follow the instructions"

    I've seen worse. My client forgetting their own requirement, then list something as a "bug" because they forgot that was the requirement.

    I've had to gently tell a person that sitting in a crowded cubicle in a......big box store kiosk doing taxes.....that the "bug" was the keyboard being pressed as they were shifting around and probably either a notebook or........body parts........pressing keys. I diagnosed that using a remote desktop setup and watching what happened as they attempted to use the software......

    Forum tip of the day ...
    If you get a temporary suspension for being a jerk to people who are trying to help you, and arguing with mods and admins, don't go making new accounts. Chances are, if you p**s us off enough to suspend you for a week, we're not going to hesitate giving you a permanent ban when you give us a reason.
    I swear my post count is:
    40,000 moving threads and telling people not to doublepost or necropost
    3,000ish legit posts

    And Touchfuzzy, such amazing contradictory sentences. The second paragraph incredibly highlights the first... not. Also, I doubt someone claiming telepathy has anything to do with you. By all means, though, as I said, put "no thoughts" in the rules... otherwise, how is anyone supposed to know...? (Oh, but as it happens in 1984 nothing is illegal actually, so this forum has a good start...)

    this is a perfect example of how helpful a screenshot can be while you have limited information
    I was offered a great job, and turned it down when my current employer matched their offer. My teammate, who was a reference for me, then applied for the same job and got it, and accepted. Now I think that company hates me (for turning them down), and my current company hates me (for encouraging my teammate to apply - though they don't really know I did).

    In the end tho you got better pay and your friend got a better job... Sounds like a win-win to me xD

    And the other company got a better developer. The only one that loses is my current employer, who is now paying me more than I asked for, and is losing one of their best developers.

    It’s quite the conundrum. Like @Finnuval says tho sounds like a win-win for at least you guys.

    congrats about your new offer that’s great!
    So hubby and I bought a couple of wireless bluetooth headsets (I prefer wired, but our cat likes to eat headphone cables ... and mouse cables, keyboard cables, phone charges, iPad chargers ... you get the picture). Got home as shops were closing, only to discover neither of us has a bluetooth-enabled computer. :rolleyes:
    TFW your request for a salary increase is met with "not unless you have a job offer from another company"
    So you get an amazing job offer from another company, and in order to keep you, your company has to match it ... which means giving you an increase much higher than you originally requested.

    Ahhh... they usually keep you on longer if you're good at hiding the bodies. Yeah I could see where that would be risky. Really there's only one answer! Take the extremely risky and highly unlikely route of full time game dev! You got this! What could go wrong? :LZSexcite:

    Ewww @Kes I never even thought of that being a thing! Now there's even LESS of a chance I'll ever go on one (is there such a thing as less than zero in this context?)

    Still no offer from the new company, but multiple apologies at how long it's taking. A week ago they were waiting on approval for the "team structure" (a thing I'd expect to be approved before placing the ads). On Friday they told me they interviewed 2 people and want to hire us both. It's all clear now.

    So many threads to move to the right place. My post count is awesome, but 95% of it is due to moving things.
    I have been dying for a weekend when I didn't have to do anything, so I could do the last of my unpacking, clean my "office" and set up all my sewing stuff. Now that I finally have one, I actually don't want to do anything. :(

    I hate cover letters. Hate them. It gets exhausting cheerfully telling people how good I could be for their company, only have them mentally fill in at the end of it "if I were the correct gender for the job."

    I really sometimes think I shouldn't have gone into a traditionally male-dominated field, but I love what I do, dangit.

    o.o ...sorry. /rant

    @taarna23 Or be declined a job because of a stupid personality test.

    "Sorry, your persoanlity type just isn't what we're looking for. What do you mean these tests are utter nonsense, and the results easily manipulated by simply tailoring your answers to meet a specific criteria!"

    @The Stranger Oh, gosh. If I get those I make sure to answer what I think they want. ...which, if resulting in a job, unfailingly results in a terrible job.

Early WIP for my next entry. Since it's early you're going to need to wait a little longer than usual. What's that? You'll find out in my next update!
