  1. With the proliferation of map tiles, dry erase boards/sheets/etc, and 3-d terrain I was kind of curious how folks handle this.

     

    Who does this? How do you do it; the old fashioned way (give player 'A' some graph paper and tell him/her to draw)?

    Well, those boxes i'm keeping as a collectors item....plus i'm a packrat.

    I still have my Vampire box. But then again, it still has Bones in it.

     

     

    ...me, too...

     

    ...and me...

     

    QC is the prime lesson from Bones I, so I think most of us can live with the delay to improve on final product. A lot was learned. Quality is definitely the superior value to make priority.

    QFT.

    And no, it's not happening, at least not in the way I think you mean; today's music DOES suck.

    Whew, i still have time. I know there's a lot of music and grouos that's new that I love (civil wars, of monsters and men) but seeing what 'mainstream' (I guess?) Considers good, was horrifying. Instead of music time like this in the mornings, I may just have to bring my iPod and play them music that way.

     

    Good call.

     

    Totally agree about what mainstream considering 'good'.

     

    What I listen to will never be considered mainstream (rock and metal) but at least they're still using honest to god instruments!!

  4. Watching vh1 with the kiddies (I turn the channel from the more...unsuitable videos) and I'm wondering...when did music progression turn to the same freaking phrase over and over and over with no chorus or that the chorus is 95% of thr song and that song is seriously a hit....

     

    Dangit, its happening isn't it? That phase that as teenagers we say will never happen. We believe we'll always like the new music and progress with it. We believe our current bands will always be popular when we get older and will never be out of fashion.

    It started happening when it became all about bu$ine$$. Talent and ability fell by the wayside. It's gotten so that songwriting ability isn't important anymore; it's all about finding the right pretty face to belt out the corporate produced tunes. drek.

    And I'm back from call back interview #2. It was about 8 hours or so round trip, through some beautiful New England and up state New York fall scenery. One more to go, but honestly I'd rather one of the 2 positions I've already interviewed for.

    Now to spend the weekend relaxing and trying not to chew my finger nails to the bone or otherwise drive myself insane waiting to hear some (hopefully) good news.

    You and me both, CW. In the meantime, kick back and grab a beer?

     

    Good luck, bud! I was in a piratical mood, so I went with rum instead...

     

     

     

    That was actually directed at Ub3r, but that looks great

    ROFL.. Sorry..

    Well, anywho, the Jay can cook outof desperation.

    I don't know if I want to see Ub3r destroying applesauce !

    Shudder

     

     

    I'll show pics of the next thing I ruin the next time I attempt some mad science.

     

    Just make certain it's family friendly.

     

    Watching Ghostbusters with my four year old daughter. She says we should get a dog like the ones in the movie.

    If you find any, please pm me the breeders info.

     

     

     

     

    Autocorrect is a vicious, evil, wicked, poisonous thing, designed by software engineers possessed by giggling Chaos Demons. I am certain that before I am safely dead, someone is going to try and install something similar on voting machines... "Are you sure you didn't MEAN to vote for the OTHER guy...?"

     

    Shh...don't give them any ideas!

     

    Watching Independence Day now. Another one I haven't seen in a while. White House was just blown up by alien ship.

    Funny story about that:

    When the movie first came out, I was in the Navy and my ship was in the shipyards for some repair work. I had 2 roommates at the time. In the morning, we'd usually turn the TV on to CNN to catch up on current events while we were getting ready to head to work. One day, one of my roommates and I walked into the room and flipped on the TV after work.

     

    Just in time to catch THAT scene.

     

    For that exact instant in time, we just stared at the TV and each other, :blink::wow::wacko: ::o:WTF just happened? We were halfway back out the door, figuring that there had to be some kind of general recall going on, 'cause we were sure as heck going to war with somebody.

    Remember, we thought the TV was on CNN. (The other roommate had returned earlier and changed the channel)

     

    Then the scene switched to something with Will Smith, time slowed down a bit, realization dawned, and we began laughing like fools.

  7. Yeah, everyone should be posting up pics what they snagged from the boxes (not what they put into them). Just so we can oooooh and ahhhhh over the things. 

    yup, what he said. ::):

     

    Is everybody switching out the box for a fresh one or just relabeling the box that arrives? some of each?

    Ub3r got this one.

     

    More fun giving than receiving for me. I like to surprise people.

    Same here, on both accounts.

    someone, please help. Ub3r is stalking me. The last post I made, he hit like before the page refreshed from actually making the post. It's beginning to creep me out.

    He's done that to me before too.

     

    It's... Worrisome. :unsure:

     

    Until we got evidence to the contrary, I hereby put forward the notion that Ub3r N3rd is not a human being, but some sort of weird AI/machine collective placed here to study us for reasons yet unknown.

     

    I'm a hunter among my people. You should be worried.

    So am I.

     

    I realized I have been bad at putting away my WotC minis after game sessions. I have a ton to put away. While I do, I think I will inventory them since I know my lists are not up to date.

     

    Is there interest in pics of the collection of over 2k minis?

    Sure, why not? I think either the acquisitions thread or Show Off would be appropriate; seeing 2k figures is worthy of showoff.

     

    @ CW: That's great news! I'll sacrifice some goats to the gods of good jobs for you :;,;:

    Thank you, that will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you, everyone!

    Awesome news CW! Hope they turn out well for you!

     

    -still 2 days away from 3rd interview date-

    Thanks, and right back atcha!!

     

    Best of luck Wolf. remember don't bite anyone unless you get turned down.

    Thank you; very good advice! >scribbles down notes<

    Screw that noise. Bite them when they shake your hand and assert your dominance of the situation. Let them know you are the best for the job and will do what it takes to have...including killing the competition with your own teeth.

     

    LOL!!

  10. Yup, I second the get well soon, Froggy!!

     

    As mentioned in the Random thread, I'm going to be a little busy in the next week or two. If You need something and I don't get to you in a reasonable amount of time (I work 7-3:30, get home by 4 and can't get to the forums from work) hit up Ub3r N3rd and he'll get you sorted. I'll check in as often as possible though, to try and make sure things are going well (and to make sure Ub3r doesn't think I came up with all this, and then dumped it on him :upside: ).

  11. So, here's me barging into the middle of whatever ongoing conversation there is with something totally unrelated.

     

    I spent the last few days down in New Jersey at a hiring conference. In case you don't know/were wondering, that's where one company ( commonly known as head hunters ) get a whole bunch of folks together with the hiring managers from various other companies who are looking for new talent. The company I dealt with specializes in putting military veterans in contact with companies who are looking for people with certain skill sets (electronics, mechanical skills, electricians, etc).

     

    Why do you care?

     

    i got back home last night; this afternoon, I received 2 phone calls from the head hunter company. Two of the companies I spoke with yesterday want to have me come back for a second interview; one of which is tomorrow! The recruiter said that there was also a pretty good possibility of hearing from at least 1 other company.

     

    Holy mountain of good fortune falling on my head, Batman!! :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday:

     

     

    Also, I know at least a few other folks have been looking for a new job; I've been looking for a fair amount of time, and was pretty down in the dumps about the whole process. I'd just like to take a minute to offer some encouragement to you; keep your head up and keep fighting the good fight. You'll get yours!! ::):
