    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Finally home. Now to dread repeating it all tomorrow. Because I really just don't feel like working this week, even though it's a short week.

    Ready to go home. Still almost 4 hours left. Want to go home. Want to not be at work...

    Fantasy. I have some cardstock terrain files from Fat Dragon Games around somewhere, but they're more the dungeon tiles type. I bought them probably 6 or 7 years ago now, back when I had a color printer and was trying to get a Pathfinder game going with some friends who were living down the street at the time. I didn't even think of cardstock for buildings, because my brain doesn't put things together often. I'd have to take them to a print shop to print though. I've only got a black and white printer now. I don't print enough to keep an inkjet around since the cartridges would just dry out, so I got a cheap laser instead. I'll keep these in mind. They probably also ring true for foam core, or at least the ballast part.

    They may be too modern. I need medieval looking stuff. But I'll take a look. After all a lot of European buildings are still styled after the old half-timbered construction of the 14th/15th centuries, or they're actual still-standing examples. No need for spray paint when I have airbrushes. They're wonderful.

    Regular. I want them for playing Kings of War.

    Finding cheap terrain is proving to be difficult. I just want a couple buildings, but it seems like even a single building will run me like $35-40 in most cases.

    Nah, this one isn't a good story for either of us. It was just a cluster of rules mistakes and forgetting things due to unfamiliarity with the game. Reading through the rules now, and reading them in full rather than skimming, I see so many mistakes that we made because we didn't read everything. Like how we borked the reserve deployment, and retaliation attacks, and just about every other thing we did. Maybe next time we'll have a decent story.

    I got to play a game! I lost! It was fun! We're gonna try to do it again over the weekend.

    Kings of War: Vanguard

    Played my first game today. Undead vs Goblins, in a kill the bard scenario. I was the undead, and I lost. But I think it's because we both were learning the game as we went, sharing a single rulebook. The scenario isn't one that really favors an army of slow units that have a commander who forgets about surge. But I think we're gonna try to play some more in the near-ish future.

    'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings;Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'Nothing beside remains. Round the decayOf that colossal wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away.

    It's a shame you can't join house Bones Supporter. We are an exclusive house, only available to those who have been here since the Beginning of the New Age. Ours was the first House, born of the sweat and tears of the Webmaster, each icon and title forged by hand in the depths of The Code. But we are a dying breed. The Great Schism saw to that, with many of our members being enticed to the other, lesser Houses. But such is life in the world of miniatures. As the New Shiny comes along, the Old Dull is left behind...

    It's currently 3F with a wind chill of -8F. That's -16C and -22C for the people on metric. It's cold. I'm tempted to turn my heat up, but I don't want to because last month my heating bill was already higher than what I'd like it to be. Stupid old house...

    Rapid window exits are what the Defenestration Station is for. If you don't know where that is, just look for the burliest, angriest looking guy in the room(he's usually by the window) and throw a punch at him. He'll then point you in the direction of the nearest Defenestration Station, usually at a rapid rate of acceleration.

    The NFL is total BS too. How are you supposed to determine the best team when each team only plays 16 games? That means they only play each other once! That's a terrible sample size! At a minimum they should be having 32 games a season so that everyone plays everyone at least twice. Otherwise it's a terrible form of competition where a single bad game can ruin everything. And that's not even touching on how their playoffs and championships are determined by a single game rather than a best-of series. It's just dumb all around.

    Was going to need them for today. But I found them, and now I don't need them because the game has been cancelled due to my opponent's friend having a death in the family. So he's going out to visit him today, and we'll play tomorrow instead since I have the holiday off. Eh. It's not Win8. You can make it look like Win8 if you want to, but I don't know why you would. Other than being "flatter" in its UI design and having some iffy choices in how you access certain options, it's not that much different than Win7 from a usability standpoint for the layman. Power users will have more complaints, but for the most part it's not terrible. Now, the whole "we're gonna automatically install apps you never asked for because their developer paid us" and the "you don't get to choose when to update" things are dumber than hell. Especially since they've run into multiple cases where an update will render certain computers totally unusable. Most recently that happened with a bunch of Lenovo laptops. And they even removed update control from the enterprise users! That's phenomenally stupid. I can understand the Home version not having it, because the large majority of Home users are going to be people that don't know what they're doing, and then never update and so they're now the unwitting pawn of 6 different botnets at once. But the Professional and Enterprise editions should have total control over the updates. Anyone that's paying the premium for the Professional edition should have an idea of what the heck they're doing, and if they don't update it's usually for a reason. If they get owned because they didn't get a certain patch, it's their own fault. Same thing with Enterprise, except even more so because it means they're licensing for something like a minimum of 50 computers and should have an IT department to take care of that stuff. Eh. It depends on how old they are. Pretty much anything from the Vista era onwards(so 2007 on) will run fine or with minimal effort. But beyond that you start to run into bigger issues now and again. However, many of Windows' problems are because MS has kept adding kludge over the years to maintain backwards compatibility. With Win10 they finally said "enough is enough" and started to phase out the built in support for programs from 15+ years ago. As a result, Win10 is more secure than previous Windows releases have been, and it's generally more stable in regular use. That's not high praise, considering Windows' history, but it's still praise. The tradeoff is that older programs that relied on bits of old code now have issues running. It's a natural part of computing.
