  • My son wants Jurassic World Evolution. $100AUD on Steam. Please let me know if you see this at a discount or in a humble bundle.

    I'm after the PC version. We don't celebrate Christmas, and he hardly ever asks for stuff, so I don't have an issue getting it for him. I'd just rather not pay a small fortune for it.

    mmm $60USD (deluxe) is about $85AUD on xe.com - that's better than I thought. I did include the DLC originally in my estimate, but he says he doesn't want that. He also hasn't used Steam and may not know what DLC is, so may change his mind :D
    I'm a failure as an animal foster carer. One kitten, two days. I don't want to give him up! My whole family wants to keep him!

    That's precisely the reason I had to stop fostering animals. I ended up with two extra dogs, a cat and a goat before I finally had to make myself stop.

    Haha! I told the lady this who runs the rescue, and she said not to worry - two of her carers have SIX cats each because they couldn't let them go! I checked council guidelines, and we are only allowed to have 3, which we already have. So no keeping fosters.
    Thought I might sew today. Removes seedlings from sewing desk to outside. Returns to find cats sleeping on towel on sewing desk. No sewing.

    And then suddenly they jump off the sewing desk and quickly move to occupy your mouse. :p

    Yikes! Seems like every time I plan on sewing, I end up spending all day prepping, then have no time to actually start.

    I DID sew! Realised they had all vacated, so grabbed my chance. Then they decided my computer desk would be the place to be! Didn't get everything finished though, so maybe during the week or next weekend ...
    You're a hard working, kind, highly intelligent person who gets things done and doesn't just sit back and let things happen to them. I'm sure that you will be able to conquer anything in front of you. Tear through awful projects and go on to better things! I'm rooting for you!

    As Shaz has deleted her status that explained the situation I'll leave it up to her to decide if she wants to share or not. I figured a public support post wouldn't be a bad idea though. People love you here, Shaz, you should get to hear that if you have the chance. ^_^

    Awww, you're too sweet :) The status I deleted was a gripe that my family had all been sick for a week, and today I have to go back to work, to the most difficult, badly managed, soul sucking project I have ever had the displeasure to work on. And I've got it for at least another 3 months. I have no motivation to go to work.

    Yeah, it's impossible to get motivation from a toxic work environment like that. Gotta pull it in from elsewhere I guess. Bring happiness in with you or choose your own goals for success since finishing work won't be fulfilling. *shrugs* I wish I could help, but this is the best I can do.

    TFW you spend 1/2 hour looking for the haystack in the FSM packs, only to realise the project where you saw the tile wasn't an FSM project.

    I've so done that. "Where's that awesome pixel art thingy!" *2hrs later finds thingy* "Wait this isn't pixel art at all. I can't use this."

    haha! That's exactly it! In this case, I suppose it's okay to have a farm that doesn't have a haystack. I do have a few special resources that I know won't be there, and I can't do without as they're plot related. That'll be interesting...

    Yeah, finding the right artist or editing things together to work is always a bit of a trick. I've been pretty amazed at the things that people dig up or offer to make over at resource requests, especially when the person asking is nice like you, maybe you can get help there?

    Just played the FSM:ToB sample game. MUCH better than reading the guide/manual, and lots of inspiration. I know I'll still struggle to map!

    I like FSM collection game is very beautiful and is clear that a creator put a lot of efforts in it.

    The FSM:W&C sample game wasn't as enlightening. The mythos just contained blurb about the inspiration for the maps - no tips & tricks on creating the same effects. The maps are still beautiful though.
    10.5 more hours of work before I'm on a 3 week vacation. Yes, I am counting in hours now.

    Last day today. We didn't actually go anywhere or do anything. I didn't even touch my game, and I'd initially planned to spend almost the whole time working on it! The best laid plans ... SO not ready to go back next week :(

    Good day. I have a question about the script Shaz's SMARTPATH plugin. He doesn't want to work on big maps. The character will get stuck somewhere and worth it. Can I fix it?

    Spent yesterday afternoon at a carnivorous plants workshop with my 16YO. Now he wants a carnivorous plant garden. Have to settle for 4 atm.
    I detest applying for stuff through our trust or company. So much paperwork, and only my accountant knows what most of it means :(

    If I don't understand something, I ask. You wouldn't believe how many pieces of other people's jobs that I know where I work, just because of that. Knowledge is power, and it's always better to know things than trust others to know them for you.

    When I see requests that say "I want" or "I need" but don't actually ask nicely for someone to do it, I don't feel like filling them. Weird?
    Nice vacation @ coast. Going home today. That building evacuation at 3:30am on our last day was a nice touch. Glad we're only on floor 8!
    Finally getting my week of downtime from work. When I get back, I will have two projects to work on. Both will be my highest priority.

    How can you have two "highest priority" projects? My plan is to put the respective project owners in a room, lock the door and walk away for half an hour. The ones left standing when I get back will be the owners of my "highest priority" project.

    We get a lot of work from the Credit and Marketing departments. Unfortunately, both of these projects are from Marketing, with different people at the helm.

    You gotta admit though, the comedy of the situation is spectacular. Stealing money meant for poor puppies and kittens is something you could totally see an evil mastermind would do in a kid show.

    Season 10 of Masterchef has just started. Really nice, encouraging show without all the drama. Gordon Ramsey is a guest chef this year.

    I only like Gordon Ramsey in Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and Hotel Hell. I like all of the fun drama in those shows. :D However, I did enjoy a show where he went into a prison to help the inmates do cooking and be productive.

My home state baseball team is going back to the World Series for the first time since 1999. I remember when they went in 1995 and won, that was like the best day of my life. (I'm a huge baseball fan and yes I'm talking about the Braves).
FL Studio is a huge step up from LMMS but I'm having such a tough time with it D:<
The new Dune movie reminds me of the game Dune 2 made by Westwood. A quality product on its own, but extremely disloyal to its source of inspiration.

Feeling like my new profile picture is nice. Thinking of making it semi-permanent, does any one has an opinion? Does it look too evil or does it work as a public profile picture? :)
