    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I saw this post on the sidebar, so only halfway read it and thought "Yep, sounds about right for a Monday at every job I've ever had" before realizing that this was about mice.

    Really appreciate y'all taking the time to explain things and answer questions. Technical issues aside, (these things happen.) it was a great stream. I look forward to seeing pictures of Nyarlathotep, he looked awesome!

    @NecroMancer You forgot to remind me to remind you, but this is your reminder that the livestream is in about 30 minutes.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    PSA: I received an email this morning that appeared to be from Paypal - and I mean, it absolutely looked like it was from Paypal. It didn't help that I was checking my email on my phone while sitting at a very long red light so I didn't have the time to look it overly carefully and so it caused an immediate gut reaction of "I didn't make any Paypal transactions " which is exactly what its intent was. To panic you so that you don't look into it further and just start clicking on links and typing in your password and whatnot. Fortunately, what I did instead, was wait until I got to the office and was able to look at the email more carefully. Let me reiterate again - this email looked legit. The name was right, the graphics were right, the format was right and it wasn't just a standard receipt - "Thanks for using Paypal. Your transaction is being reviewed because our system detected that you are using an unknown device. If the transaction was not made by you Login here and cancel it in order to get full refund. It may take a few moments for this transaction to appear in your account." Now that's truly evil because they're playing on your fear that your account has been compromised and your instinct to fix the situation ASAP. I think a lot of people would click on the "Login here" link in a panic and then god only knows what that link leads to. If you haven't done so already, look into all the security features that Paypal has for you to secure your account. They have a lot of them. Take advantage of all layers of security offered to you. Unless you are physically sitting there ordering something from a site and can confirm that it's legit beyond a shadow of a doubt, don't ever take any email from Paypal at face value. If you have those layers of security in place as you should, Paypal would have warned you long before someone was actually able to make a transaction. Don't click on links in emails. Just don't do it. It's not safe. Even if you get an email from your best friend, if they're not sitting there telling you they're sending you a link to something, don't trust it. Send them a text and ask them if they actually sent it to you or not. Whenever possible, type the website address directly into your browser. It's just safer. If you receive an email like I did, DON'T PANIC! If someone already has access to your account, you do want to take care of it as quickly as possible, but that doesn't mean you should lose your head. Calm down, DON'T CLICK ON ANY LINKS, type the website address directly into your browser and login from there, check your account activity. If the website tracks login attempts, check that as well. There are often little tells in phishing emails, for instance when I really read the statement that I quoted above, I realized that there was a typo/poor grammar. The email of the merchant that it claimed to be for (which a quick Google search proved that it was a real merchant, just not one that I'd heard of before) was "Customer.Services" when the real email for that website was "Customer.Service". As well as other very minor inconsistencies. Do not, however, assume that just because you can't find an inconsistency that it means the email is legit. Better safe than sorry - if you are at all suspicious of an email that you receive, type the website address directly into your browser and look into their suspected fraud/spoof/phishing procedure. Paypal, for instance, asks that you forward any suspicious emails to their "Spoof" account so they can look into it. Change your passwords often and use strong ones; you're all familiar with the characters and whatnot that help to make a strong password, but also don't use numbers, names or objects that could easily be associated with you. Pet names, for instance, are a terrible idea, because you almost certainly mention your pet's name somewhere on social media. For the love of god if you are one of the people who still uses "password" or "123456" or any of the really stupid passwords that are on the list of most common passwords, please knock it off and properly secure your accounts. Thank you and have a nice day of not clicking on any links in emails.

    Our understanding of each other passed by like two ships in the night. I'm obviously still in the right and I suppose I'll forgive you.

    I can only do this if someone posts a reminder to remind me to remind you.

    I obviously can't answer whether they'll upload to youtube or not, but Twitch archives livestreams. Just go to their profile page and the tab Videos will have the archived videos. @ladystorm There's a chunk of "%C2%A0" code at the end of your twitch link that is making it 404.

    Wut? I didn't pass it by! I said I AM in! I was just saying I don't know what any of the characters are and have no interest in watching it to preempt the cries of "But it's so good!" There are a lot of kickstarters that I'm not interested in, I don't go posting in all of them to say so.

    No interest in Critical Role (don't jump on me for my heresy; I'm a painter, not a gamer) but I very much like the design of several of these figures and it's a really good deal, so I'm in.

    We need to get you back into prime pie throwing shape so Buglips remains frightened of you. A healthy dose of fear keeps him docile. Joking aside, I hope it heals very well for you even if it can't be quick.

    An appeal for civilty

    That's the problem though, people aren't listening, they're just biting their tongues and that's why there's so much tension. People will only tolerate "sneaky" jabs for so long. When people throw in comments with only vague references or try to stop people from disagreeing with their opinions by saying "oh no, don't YOU get this sent to Beekeepers by disagreeing with the things we've already said" it's very transparent what the motivation there is. Just like it's obvious what the motivation behind making fun of a politician's hair over a rando actor is. (I'd disagree with making fun of the rando actor as well - I don't think you should be making fun of anyone, whether you know them or not, if they're not in on the joke.) Moreover, it's not "whatever the group wants" - it's Reaper's house and their rules. They created Beekeepers, so it's their wishes that people are choosing not to respect and are provoking people that do choose to respect them in the process. If Beekeepers is unpleasant, that doesn't mean that anyone has any right to decide to do as they please instead. Choosing civility is about respect for both Reaper as our hosts and the people around you. This is a neutral space; that's what it's meant to be and that's what it should remain. If we were discussing these things in person, sure it would be far more understandable for things to just slip out. God knows what sort of magical technology we'd need for censoring certain words in that case. But we're not talking about letting things slip while you're speaking. When you sit down at a keyboard and start typing, get all the way through typing and then hit the submit button, you are making a conscious choice, one that so many people on this forum are fully capable of taking responsibility for. I think the spirit of this thread is for people to more carefully consider what they're typing and that's not an unreasonable request by a long shot.

    I don't know why I resisted upping my pledge to Completionist for so long. I love Stonehaven's figures quite a lot.

    I know you are. I meant to ask you for pointers last year but for some reason only getting a cumulative 12ish or so hours of sleep through the entire trip made my brain not function particularly well. Or, at least worse than usual.

    Doug I can't take your class even though I obviously really need to because I already have a class scheduled at that same time. I hope you won't mind when I sadly squeak out "help" while shoving my phone at you. Just so you know, I'm not above bribing you if you want to drop some hints.
