  1. Know what a big sign is that you have been married for quite a while, that your wife knows you, and that she sort of expects you to do questionable things? When you walk into the kitchen with the removed plastic front grill of the expensive new car, and she doesn’t say anything but asks for help opening a jar. The car company’s solution to not designing in a front plate is to screw five screws down through the front bumper and attach a cheap plastic mount to hold the metal bracket. Uh, no. I have a 3D printer and scary mad design skills. It is getting a

  2. Ah yes, my favorite stage of moving; the increasing numbers of "Miscellaneous from [insert name of room]" boxes as we lack the time or energy to do more than shove random stuff into boxes. After this move, MrBoot and I are agreed that we won't be moving again for a long, loooong time. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

  3. Today's edition of Timeline Trivia: 1929 – Colin Murdoch, a New Zealand pharmacist and veterinarian, was born. He would go on to invent the tranquilizer gun, the disposable hypodermic syringe, and the child-proof medicine container. Despite holding the patents, he did not become rich from them; he never sued companies for infringement, being satisfied that his inventions were put to good use. 2018 - MvM's sweet chocolate puppy, Molly, arrived at her forever home, strutting in as if she already owned the place.

  4. The other set of first completed miniatures of 2021, miniatures from the Dunkeldorf range from King Games. Very inspired by Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. The majority of them are from the newer Prancing Peacock Kickstarter but some selections I made were from the existing line. The tables and chairs are cheating, I think they're from Mantic Terrain Crate and were ready already, I didn't back for any of the extra scenery from Dunkeldorf.

  6. In my first set of finished miniatures in 2021, a selection of heroes from Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 Kickstarter. They were primed at the end of 2020 after a end of year arrival, but painted over the last month or so. The whole of my finished ones: The Orcs: My favorite of the set. They showed her as concept art on Instagram about 3 projects ago, I'm glad to see her in physical form finally. The Goblins: I got a very Nott the Brave vibe from this one:

  8. I've had people riding with me look at me strange when I stopped at a stop sign. Someone actually said "but there's nobody here!" and I was all "did somebody forget about the GPS inside the dash watching us, as well as the GIANT HAPPY SMILING GUY WITH A COFFEE MUG (and conveniently placed ten digit phone number) on the side of the vehicle that's being operated?" Yeah, those calls go direct to the call center now, and boy do any complaints about drivers get fed up the line faaaast. At warp speed even if there's a unit number on the side of the vehicle, also conveniently in easy t

Everything is printed on an Ender 3. Here, Farmer Forscale fills in for his nobleborn cousin (Reaper 77665: Townsfolk) Next to the older Windmill, a file from Thingiverse

  10. As every year I make at least one Pit Fighter as a sacrifice to a Mordheim revival, I started out early this year. For the holidays, a friend got me the Greenfield Grasshuggers Blood Bowl team, despite me not playing, he said it felt weird to have a team named in my honor but I didn't own it. So instead, he enabled this horror: Out of the cruel depths of Mordheim's cheapest fighting pits comes the never-victor, the eternally battered Halfling Gladiator only known as Bloodytoes! The other is an as-is Ogre Gladiator from Knightmare Models. Delightfully retro.

  13. This year's Christmas present to myself was a Sonic Mini 4k printer. I've done a few runs now and promised a pic of a painted mini at some point. Gardain here was a bit of a failure as it turns out there were a few problems with the pre-supports. Still, he's 99% ok which means he's good enough to use as an example, but also that I don't care enough to paint to a high standard. So with that in mind, he was painted with a thin layer of primer through the airbrush, a slightly thinned basecoat, and then a few washes. I.e. the point is to show off how much detail the printer can do,

  20. Never stopped anybody here before. I live in the warmer south of Pezler where it's only -29C and not really any wind right now. Good day to stay in the house but my mom has her yearly heart checkup so we get to go for a 160 km one way drive. We've had a very nice, very warm winter. This next week will make up for that. Not going to be fun fighting with the equipment tomorrow.

  25. Ok, it sounds not too different from the heavy Irish/German cooking my grandparents did. Lots of bacon, cabbage, noodles, and potatoes, pickled vegetables, pies, and coffee cake covered in brown sugar topping. You absolutely should. In-person is the best when you have questions about ingredients or methods, or pronunciation...

  26. Today's question about favorite cuisine reminds me that I have to look up cooking classes once I move. I've taken a few in the past (pad thai, pho soup), so finding Chinese cooking classes shouldn't be impossible. Sure, YouTube is a reference, but I want the hands on experience.

  27. Indian, mostly because my kids like it, and so I don't have to worry about making sandwiches. I also dont eat it every week, and its always fun to try a new dish. Mexican and most Chinese are also part of my regular diet, but I have eaten the "easy to cook" low-spice versions so many times, I kinda overdosed on it. I remember enjoying it in restaurants but it has been a long time since it felt new or different.

  28. Well, it's kind of hard to define. It depends on the local sect. Many would consider it Eastern European, with such classics as Mennonite farmer sausage (a dry sausage that is delicious), borscht, cabbage rolls, pickles, pies, and perogies. Those are the classics served at the Mennonite restaurant in town. You can't live in the prairies without knowing what a perogy is. Cheap perogies are a student staple and they sell them in the supermarket. We also have German dishes in the local cuisine, with German sweet and sour cabbage and sauerkraut. Yes, lots of cabbage and potatoes and dairy. I have

  30. Everyone at work loves Mennonite food, but that doesn't count, because we're mostly German-Ukrainian. Because I'm gluten-intolerant, I have a lot of problems getting fast food anymore, so I usually order Vietnamese. I have no idea what's on the menu at the burger joints, but I know what I want at every Vietnamese restaurant. I also love Chinese Chinese food. We are fortunate to have a huge new Chinese supermarket in NE Calgary, which I love to make trips to. Lately they've been having seasonal hot foods at the take out counter, and they've been downright delicious. My dog and I ha

  31. Front two units are done, I think, except for a final sealing. Bases just got a "wet brush" (a drybrush would have knocked off too much ballast) of Mustard Yellow and a bit of Polished Bone, and tidied up the rims with some more Ruddy Leather. The other 4 units go their ballast and rocks and are drying. Might get them finished up tonight so I can try to get them all sealed tomorrow before the temp drops.

  36. It's been sort of described, so I'll just go with "incredibly delicious" as a description. That's one of the things I miss about Calgary. The markets there are insanely awesome.. I KNEW I should have taken pics of the food we had ordered in because of an UberEats promotion! (hey, $20 off a place we've wanted to try was so worth it. Hubby hated the lamb burger, which mean moooore for me!) It was a really delicious lamb burger, fries weren't bad (like usual, would have been better fresh out of the fryer), and the banana cream pie is something I'm go

  40. Excerpt from Ranger Aarn Cral's campaign journal Thanks to the Templar and my own findings we determined that the village had been attacked by giant spiders. It also appears that the spider's venom was the cause of the reanimated dead as well. Going forward we'll have to be careful lest we succumb to this venom and become undead ourselves. The tracks we uncovered indicated that the spiders themselves move slowly so they probably aren't too far off feasting on the remaining villagers. We took the time to patch ourselves up, made a pyre for the dead, and set off following the unique

  42. Oof, so many possible options. Thankfully, someone else reminded me of Lebanese food and oh gawds yeah I love their food. Bul go Gi is also rather delicious, as is Korean BBQ, and then we have epic things like Cornish Pasty, Shephard's Pie, Salmon Wellington, fish and chips.... I'm also going to say Donair, because eaar coast Canada literally is its own culinary schtuff!
