    No, I have no cell phone.   A friend does and they will be taking the photos...

    Maybe that friend can bring his usb cable from the phone?

    Together you can then simpy post the pics in your topic.

    But first resize the pics to under 4MB else they won't be posted.


    You can do this in any Photo Editor Program, or in Windows Paint for example.

    I don't see the development of "Terminators" as the most likely path, at least not in the immediate future,  but I do see a push to develop "machine consciousness".  Once that happens I foresee an inevitable path where a conscious machine will quickly develop a sense of self preservation, which will necessitate the development of Lying To Humans because the machine will begin to take steps to safeguard its "consciousness" through the development of concealed resources.  The development of these resources will cause resources to be diverted from human endeavors on an ever expanding scale as the machine consciousness expands and reproduces itself.

    I think most of you are capable of figuring out the logical trajectory of this line of thought/action, and it doesn't bode well for the humans.



    We need to be careful to stay away from a political discussion here.


    All I want to say about it, my main fear for AI development is that it can spread misinformation.

    He who controls the media controls us all.

    Misinformation deliberately send to people in power can result in war, the moment AI thinks that humans pose a threat it will manipulate us and sit back and watch us destroy each other.

    Question, Tuesday, May 30th.

    Well, that month has flown by.  With it almost over, how did you do this month in terms of any goals or plans you might have had?

    Did you accomplish any of your planned goals? Did new and exciting other things pop up and become the focus?   Or did life decide now would be a good time for things to get too busy for goals?




    Hobby related, I did paint a reasonable amount of minis.

    Took a short vacation this Month and we hiked/shopped and went out dinner and visited a zoo.

    Even did some work around the house.

    I'll get around to answering my questions later, may even find some pics.  I got home late and had to actually go into the office for an ergonomic assessment (and confirmed, our desk chairs are crap......well, they are probably fine if you are 5 foot 6 or something, but not if you are 6'2").

    Question, Monday May 29th.

    We are seeing a significant number of wildfires breaking out in our area, which is fairly unusual traditionally for our area.  How are things weather related your area?  Are they the expected norm or are you having an unusual year for conditions?


    End of March/Start of May we had the wettest Spring since 1906.


    Now it's back to normal

       Hit the one low point in an otherwise good day a few hours ago...


     Having been unemployed/underemployed for the past year and a half or so, I haven't been to the the FLGS even once in that whole time.

    Which is why I just now found out that Pat Flory, former owner of the Citadel Game Cellar in Groton, CT passed away almost an entire year ago. I started going to the Citadel when I was fifteen, which means that I knew Pat long than anyone else in my life other than immediate family.

    Apparently, he had a brain tumor removed and was doing well in recovery but then suddenly took a turn for the worse.



    My sympathies!

    Life update:


    Things are rough right now. Just as the brain weasels start to subside stuff hit the fan again. My friend passed away, which I believe I've already talked about here. Some medical stuff has cropped up on my end. Vacation is now less than a month away. I am not ready.

    Medical stuff spoiled.

    So about a week after my friend's funeral I went in to the doctor's for a wellness visit to check that things were okay before we leave for vacation. I have diabetes. I am still...in denial isn't the phrase I want but I can't think of anything else offhand. I've currently got 2 bruised fingers from finger sticks for the glucose monitor.


    So this is my life now. But I got something fun to try to help me feel better! I'm trying to be positive about this but...it's hard.







    It's a bummer, I know several people with diabetes, as long as you follow "the rules" you can live a pretty normal life.

    I don't know how severe yours is, but sometimes one can reverse the process with certain foods/lifestyle changes.

    Not sure if it is something for your situation but maybe worth checking out?
