    In light of the event today:

     

    August 1: Do you plan to back the Bones IV Kickstarter?  If so, do you have a goal/strategy/rules in place for what types of items you will back, what you won't, and how much you are willing to spend (and please share)?

    Yes, I have not quite started F5 F5 F5 on Kickstarter yet. I have limited funds to start this time after spending most of what I saved on emergency vet bills, but will add what I can during and after in the pledge manager. I will likely end up with all of the things. Except chibis and mouslings - I am not that fond of them. I am glad they are there for other folks though.

  2. Last year we drove and met up with the tour. We had asked if that would be a problem and were told that it would not be. It gave us more time to look around and buy more stuff. That might be an issue since we are flying this year (note to self, bring extra suitcases.)

  3. We may also have space in our rental. It is supposed to be a 2 or 4 door mid-size, Chevy Cruze or similar. Generally we end up with a "similar" of some completely random size. We land at Love Field (DAL) at 1:55 on Wed if anyone needs a ride from the airport. Sadly we have to leave this year on Sunday late afternoon/evening.

    Here is a link to the Real ID information on the DHS website. Checking the status of your state would be a good idea as in addition to the ones that are not compliant, there are a lot that received extensions.

    I just checked and found that Virginia's extension ends Oct 1, 2017 but is expected to be granted again until Oct 1, 2018 when our new licenses will be issued. I think I will bring my passport just in case. I am flying out of DC which is already a pain, no reason to add an extra layer of headache.

  5. I spent much of the weekend doing an inventory and fitting parts. Kudos to Reaper Katie for pulling my 93 item pick list perfectly. The only issue I had was that the single axe frost giant warriors from one of my sets was missing his left arm. Currently I am inclined to fill the hole with green stuff and give him a scar rather than ask for a replacement. It would make him unique anld fun to play - too bad the player's characters have such a strong resemblance to the ones who did it.

    Question the 26th of May:  Do you more often travel to events or host them (game days, bbqs and so forth)?

    I usually host. My group is scattered across the area but I am the only one with dogs. Any event over 6 hours including travel time means the dogs come with me. Generally it is easier for everyone to come to my house. I also host an annual summer bbq, now known as Flamefest after an unfortunate incident with the gas grill 6 or 7 years ago. It left the premises that day and I only cook/smoke with charcoal now. Lost a king sized blanket that day too trying to put that sucker out.

    I ordered one of everything and a few duplicates and am at 29.0lbs. @Kate must have a massive order.

    I have one of everything, but also a second Mythos expansion, Dagon, and a bunch of giants for a friend. UPS now says it will be delivered on Friday - my telework day so happy dance. I MIGHT be able to wait until Saturday when my friend comes over to open the box - or not.

    Question the 9th of May:  All things Bones KS edition!  Did you pledge for any of the Bones Kickstarters?  If so, which one(s)?  If you are waiting on Bones 3, do you have a storage solution ready for their imminent arrival?  Do you plan on pledging for Bones IV?  Can you ever have "enough" Bones?

    I have pledged for all the Bones Kickstarters and have no will power so pretty much for all of the things. I have "20" plastic bins of various sizes to sort Bones 3 into, some (many) of which still have Bones 2 waiting to be painted. I will definitely pledge for Bones 4, have a strict budget, and will exceed it getting all of the things. Clearly, given the evidence, I can never have enough Bones!

  9. Last move was May of 2007 so that the dog could have a yard

     

    Next move will be in 6 - 9 years depending on whether we think we can make it to full retirement at work. Minimum retirement age is a bear some days. Then off to somewhere tropical with cheap insurance - likely Costa Rica. Luckily a quick flight to Florida to pick up my Bones X ::D:

    Question for Friday, April 14th

    Any thoughts on self-driving cars?

    I wouldn't have one or ride in one. I am a technical adviser on a connected vehicle project and have spent the last four years fighting to insure that the devices that send information to the vehicles have some sort of security before they are connected to my traffic signals. The traffic industry is just now beginning to think about security and only reluctantly.

     

    Beyond security, the infrastructure has to be in good condition. The current driverless vehicles require good roadway markings to help stay in the lanes. We have had to restripe the roads for google to test their vehicles. After the last week of pot hole filling, I can say that I would not trust any driverless vehicle to safely navigate any roads within a mile of my house as the markings have been randomly obliterated.

    I don't know yet if I will enter the competition next year, but I am thinking about running some scenarios and working on figures and objects for those.

    Everyone should enter the competition!

     

    This was my first year and I was terrified to enter. I finally decided that since I had just dragged them 1300 miles I may as well enter them. I got bronze in both categories I entered - shocked and happy. Now I am busy planning what to do for next year.
