  1. I am in very much the same situation, but, as long as I can find a place to actually store the box, I think I can get away without anything much worse than an eye roll.

    Good idea, but I also want a magic desk and tool rack that keep themselves uncluttered, yet always have the project/part/tool I'm reaching for within easy reach.
  3. Thrym's Tough Decision Day

    It's way after decision time, but I'm with Ub3r. It sounds like you have a lot of experience in an in-demand field. You should not have to put up with that kind of abuse. Switching to a new position can be scary, especially if you have to be out of work while you search. If life circumstances mean you can't afford the time to look right now, then I sympathize, and understand that you might have to stay, but (hopefully) you can find something much better for yourself in the long run.

    I do. ...and since you have no way of verifying this, I'll claim to have done it nice and early, in February.

    I do not, nor am I concerned about entering the 13th floor of a building. We have a cat that has probably around 60-70% black hair, but that's about as close as I've come. Frankly, I wish he had even less white hair, given how much he's shedding right now.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! How long to hamsters live, anyway?

    I enjoy both very much, but I am a bit sad that there is a whole industry devoted to dismantling historic atlases, and parting them out as posters. I like olde books too.

    You mean like the little agitator bead Reaper includes? 100% yes.
  9. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    I had something much like that (and am still suffering into week four of on-again/off-again cough and sinus issues), but I don't think the onset was nearly as bad for me. I'm glad you're feeling better!
  10. Several of those are in the past, but I will look into it. There is a chance I will be down in NYC on 4/22, which would make it ironically harder.

    I am not at all sure. Not many. I have not personally had it in the past year, although I did have a rather unpleasant run-in with norovirus in January. N.B: For various reasons I won't go into here, I usually get a culture and positive diagnosis when I am that sick, so I can say with reasonable certainty when I have, or have not, had an actual influenza infection.

    Discounting a few minor variations, as I adjusted the design of my current avatar, I think 4. Update: Looks like I missed one in my earlier count. Everything up to the current Weights & Measures heraldry was art taken from the Shadowfist CCG, which I have used on a variety of other boards in the past.

    Surprisingly, yes. Decades of hoarding and chance purchases has greatly reduced the need I experience in a store. If I started painting regularly again (hopefully soon), I’d start to be tempted on basing materials, and the occasional rare mini again, but a depressing proportion of my purchases these days are pre-planned.

    The last starter I kicked was Oathsworn's Heroines in Sensible Shoes III, and I've gotten what I ordered. The next thing to deliver to me might actually be Bones IV, but you can never really be sure with Kickstarters, can you?

    a combination of naivete and familiarity. Kind of like @Clearman , I tend to trust until burned, abut I also find that the trust granted builds over time, as I gain familiarity with a person.

    It is also worth noting that there is an active suit in-progress between Harmony Gold, PGI and and Hare-Brained Schemes over the recent, and announced Battletech computer games. I will refrain from speculating on the eventual outcome, but PGI seems to be fighting quite actively, and has challenged HG's standing to even bring these suits in the first place. Things could change quite a lot in the next year or three.

    This is a deeply philosophical question. I rode a bike plenty from childhood through high school, but I'm not sure I've tried since. Probably? They say you never forget, but I wonder.
  18. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    I can, although not super-well. I learned as a kid, probably in the range of age 7-8, although the memory is fuzzy. At one point, I was even a trained SCUBA diver, although I haven't gone diving on over 20 years, and wouldn't try again without a full retraining at this point. I can't think of any particularly funny stories.

    Sounds about right. Mostly, I'm just glad this dumpster fire of a project is finally over.
  20. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    My former job required annual training on things like "code of conduct", and similar kinds of liability prevention training. Having been at the company for nigh-on 11 years, I can say that it did evolve over time, but was pretty similar from one year to the next. Occasionally, they'd roll out a specialty class in response to the news crisis of the year, but they were mostly more focused versions of the same thing.

    I like that word. I think I’m keeping it.
  22. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    As long as it’s not taken too seriously, it’s a fun excuse to go out and celebrate together. of course, we celebrated on the 11th this year, but close enough. You Navy guys don’t mess around
  23. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    Probably a few, but nothing in particular comes to mind right now.

    I do read some web comics, but they have all be mentioned above. (OOTS, Erfworld, xkcd, etc.) As a rule, I don't read any of them daily, but it varies over time.
