  • I feel I have failed. Shiny new laptop for my son, all set up. He says he won't use it until we go on vacation in 2 weeks. What???
    Just got a shiny new laptop for my son. Now I get to spend the afternoon uninstalling bloatware, updating Windows & installing useful stuff.

    I'm impressed. McAfee was the only thing I had to remove. Had some Microsoft rubbish to get rid of as well, but most of it Windows won't give the option to remove. Typical!

    Hubby went to print out the homegroup password and instructions for connecting to the homegroup, but it came up with an error and wouldn't let him print ... get this ... because IE was not the default browser. MS is so fickle.

    Just watched Infinity Wars. As expected, imo the best one so far. But I just want to go to bed, curl up in my doona, and cry for a while :(
    Playing through the Dark Parables games. That Fairytale Detective should know better than to ride a horse-drawn carriage by now!
    TMW you've done the less-fun parts of a script and all that remains are the horrible parts. And testing. No, there were no fun parts. RMXP.

    Horrible parts done. Now it's just copious testing. But I think, for now, it'll be dinner & bed, as dinner & testing may reveal bugs that will require rework and further testing, and I'm tired just thinking about it.

    I took it for a spin in an Aveyond game and it worked nicely. I discovered I'd made an oversight - nothing that can't be fixed with a dozen lines of code. That'll be this evening's task.
    Got a promotion at work over 2 months ago. STILL not allowed to tell anyone about it or use my new title. Lot of frustration this week :(
    TFW your supervisor is worried your taking a day off will leave us light-on, so you withdraw your request. Then they take the same day off.

    M: I want to go overseas in June, so can you change your June leave to another date?
    S: ok.
    (later)
    S: Has anyone booked leave at Christmas time yet?
    M: Not yet.
    S: I'll have the 24th off. Let me know if anyone else wants that date.
    M: It's okay, you got in first, so you will have that date off.

    ...
    I got in first those other times, too. And now this.

    That's unpleasant to say the least. I suppose your only option is to be the last one to choose the date, so someone else will be bumped off for you :headshake:

    When he asked for everyone's dates, I said I would wait for everyone else to choose theirs, and then I'd choose around them. But nobody else submitted anything. So I "got in first" because everyone else was slack, then had to change them anyway. Won't happen next year!
    Solo: A Star Wars Story looks awesome! We will be going to see it. Several times, I expect.

    I loved the Han Solo books trilogy, so I really hope this movie will be good enough to make me forget how it doesn't match at all with it. :x
    Picked the first lemons from my tree last week, and the first mandarine today. All small, but very juicy and delicious. A proud moment!

    Oh that's sweet, they're still youngsters. It's great that the weather there allows their growth. Enjoy them!

    The weather does, but the soil doesn't :( It's quite heavy clay here, and when we planted them, everything suffered. So we had to dig them all up and put back in pots. Hopefully this year we'll build raised beds and plant them all out again - they're getting a bit crowded now!

    It's challenging, but it's great they managed to grow and bear fruits. Hopefully it'll work out. They must smell very nice too.

    Making a very large script for XP. Ahhh, the memories.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    @Kes Yeah, this is the script that lets you choose a switch or variable, or an item, weapon, whatever from the database, and will show you everywhere it's used (except scripts & script calls). Unfortunately page 1 of the Ace thread has been lost :(

    crumbs - how do I post a link without it trying to embed the whole script?

    I don't think you can, that's one of the annoying things about Status Updates, it doesn't just link, it embeds.
    Work emergency with 1.5 days' notice before it HAS to be fixed. Instead of sleeping in on holiday, I'll be working today & tomorrow :(

    Awww I liked but it wasn't for the post; it was for you. I myself overtaxed myself today and... I kinda know it will be discouraging. I do hope you'll be able to get trough very nicely and well thought! :) And even have more time to have fun.

    It is all done - just finished a couple of hours ago. At least all the hard work was done yesterday. Very early start today though, and now I can't stop yawning and it's only lunchtime! I think I'll let today be a write-off and get back to game making tomorrow.

    I forgot that you might be on the other side of the world. (night here) But, YAY!
    4:00, 3:30, 2:00 ... really gotta stop waking up early and spending the rest of the night trying to get back to sleep. Just not working :(

    Another problem with meds is that you can wake up and still feel drowsy and unable to focus, until it wears off.
    Perhaps if you alter a bit your night routine, your mind will stop repeating it. And make sure the temperature isn't too warm in your room.

    I used zzzquil when that happened. A half doze usually just makes you drowsy when you take it, but you can still be woken up if someone really needs you.

    If I drink too much fluid before bed, I wake up and have to use the rest room and don't go back to sleep.. terrible. I sometimes go to bed thirsty just so I won't wake up. MEOW. terrible. I suppose it's just part of being a silly grey tabby cat. Meow.
    We should reverse weekdays/weekends. I just want to be home making my game and planting things. 5 hours to go :(

    @Sauteed_Onion, I had one in Classifieds, but it's currently closed.
    @lokirafael, "planting" is correct. It's time to plant our winter vegies.

    Aw, I know the feeling! I spent this weekend sick, so it was like it wasn't a weekend at all... Dishes aren't done, projects aren't worked on, Humble Bundle purchased but only stared vacantly at (although the guy and I tuned into the Bob Ross twitch stream for a couple episodes; that was neat). All I accomplished this weekend was, really, was sleep.

    I find a weekend of sleep makes me MORE tired! :( I WAS going to get the humble bundle, but budget won't allow it, and it will have ended by the time my next pay comes in.
    To stick with my original dev plan for the weekend, to start a plugin that will take me ages to do, or to go plant some winter vegies ... ?
    My bug report says "change to sad music sooner". I can't find anywhere on the map when I wrote that, where it changes to sad music at all!

    haha - I have to make mine LESS convoluted! I have one where a character actually says, prior to entering, "We used to play in these caves as children. We shouldn't find it too difficult to traverse."

    Usually that's the more reasonable goal. I am not sure what I was thinking when I put a note to make them more convoluted. Must've been one of those weird moments when I wasn't thinking straight. :D

    Day off, spent all morning at doctor's appointments. Planned to work on my game. Now where is my motivation? It was around here somewhere!
    Went to a soil health workshop at a local nursery today (an hour's drive away). We spent 4 hours talking about dirt! It was great!

    That must've been interesting. Did they teach you how to maintain healthy soil?
    Shaz
    Shaz
    we learned about pH and WHY it affects plants, how to test soil structure and how to change it, soil mixes, potting mixes, seed raising and propagating mixes, what are the good ones and what are the bad ones and why, what the Australian standards mean for potting mixes and how clever companies are at marketing when their products don't meet the standards.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    And we planted up a bed for a side-by-side comparison of a compost that meets the standards and one that doesn't, but has a label and a price tag that implies it's much better. We'll keep an eye on those over the next few months to see how they perform.

Anyone doing anything for NaNoWriMo this year?
Listening to, "Draum" by Eldrim. If you haven't heard it before, do so. Absolutely lovely, and utterly haunting.
Using Live2D is actually pretty fun once you get familiar with where everything is. :rhappy: And no, I'm not learning because of the Vtuber thing going around, but yes looking at those helps a lot to know what can be done :LZSlol:
[Maybe Sensitive] Personal thoughts on being "cringe".
If I were to say, being a creator also means getting cringe ideas on your project. But why would having one makes the work somehow "being bad"?
