    Woah.... mind=blown Brother? Rub yourself in some tangerine and we'll talk, paleskin. I thought you would have gone with 'latrine'... What...? I don't know what to make of this...

    WELCOME BACK!!! We missed you Cap'n! You missed a lot of randomness, like... a LOT. Otherwise, more of the same, people still posting up their projects and being awesome. Yeah, I noticed we're on a THIRD thread. We were still in the first one back when I was around regularly... So, nothing new then?

    I'm baaaaack! Funny how much drama and suck makes you want to be anti-social for, like, months. So, what have I missed?

    The Unspoken Rules of the Reaper Forum

    The basic rule is: don't be a jerk. I would think it would be common sense, but common sense stopped be common around the time the internet was invented.

    What kind of laptop did you get? I'd say unless you are going to a mom and pops store not to worry about the local economy for things like computers/laptops. Most of those places you buy the laptop from are corporations that have many locations throughout the country/world so that money just goes into their big pool anyhow. The best way to support the local economy is to buy your other things like coffee/food from local shops in my opinion, supporting those small businesses. I ordered a cheaper Acer. I just need something to hold me over a few months until I move. Then I'll invest in another desktop. You know, when i don't have to move it. Well, the thing is, the store itself still makes a profit on the sale and the place I was at also has commissions for their sales people, so it would have put some money in the hands of somebody local. I may not be an expert at economics (or with math or money in general), but by buying things at a local store, allowing it to make a profit, it helps keep sales up and the store open. However, that debate sounds like it would be headed to beekeepers land, so I shall speak no further. Now, I really should get to watching Stargate: SG-1, which I bought instead of the laptop at the store.

    Huh I always thought your BALP avatar was some kind of 40K arbite dude. (Goes to show what all I know about 40K... ) Nope, it's got a BA drop on that armor. I prefer to let spiders live, although SWMBO requires that I remove them from our domicile. Insects and related creatures (I found a house centipede - I think - it may have been the forerunner of an alien invasion) are exterminated with all ruthlessness. I once got into a rather epic battle with a wasp that was attempting to build its nest on my closet door. This was before I met SWMBO. I was armed with a foam warhammer - it had its arse. We struck back and forth across the upstairs hall in a pitched fight that bards would write sagas of in long gone ages... It didn't help that it was about 5 AM, and I'd just driven home from South Carolina. I might have treated the situation differently were I not so sleep deprived. A friend of mine went with his family on a vacation to Hawai'i. When they got back, wasps had made a nest in the ceiling of his room, directly over his bed. From what he told me, he walked in the room, looked up at the hole in his ceiling, heard the buzzing and hauled it out of there to Doppler shift colors on his way out. Well, I just blew several hundred bucks on a laptop. Plus warranty. Plus next-day shipping. Which was less than it would have cost me to buy one in a store. I feel good that I saved that much money but I hate not putting my money back in the local economy.

    As much as I enjoyed my Blood Angel Linux penguin, I thought it was time for a change. Besides, this is the best wizard. Ever.

    Totally random: 151 and vanilla Coke is good, but not without ice. I knew I should have refilled the trays and put them in the freezer...

    Eh, I'll get one or the other pretty soon. I'll probably just do WIP stuff on my blog if I do. God save the King? Oh, I can do that. 375 in the oven for an hour, right? Conversely, I can do it on Sundays. That's my drinkin' day... I need to get working on my minis again. But, I have to clean, find a new place to live, buy a new computer and try not to murder my bosses for being jerks... Too much to do...

    Unless you're willing to buy me a digital camera or a smart phone, you're in for a wait for that picture...

    So, I got my Reaper order this morning, as it was shoved (along with all my other mail) in to my mail box yesterday while I was trying to sleep. I crack the thing open, and on top of everything is a postcard telling me that ReaperCon starts... Today. Um, thanks? I just thought it was kind of funny. I also got some sample paint. Looks like a blue-grey maybe? I don't know what I'm going to use it for. Yet.

    Back to families, I'm some-what afraid to find out what might fall out of my father's side of the tree, seeing as my grandmother once pulled a gun on my grandfather... Which no one bothered to mention until they were both dead. This was the conversation, while we're going through my grandfather's things: Me: Dang, Dutch (my grandfather) had a lot of guns... (points to small pistol) Where did he pick that one up? My aunt: Oh, I remember that one. Mom pulled that one on dad one time. Me: And people ask why I don't spend time with my family...

    Thank you. Yes. Apparently, OneBoot has a castle, and Buglips knows famous people...or something like that. Interesting. I know my last name is part of a royal family somewhere in Scandinavia. However, that wasn't our name until we immigrated to the States. Or so the family tale goes. I'll look in to that. One of these days...

    Well, it looks like I lost my place in this thread while I was dealing with... 'Life.' Did I miss anything interesting?
