  1. Nobody has mentioned this change to the forums that I feel has affected feedback on WiP and Show Off threads. The Like button. I noticed a drop off in the number of posts after those buttons were added to the forum. Before they were there, you had to actually say "Nice Job", "Great work!", etc, which resulted in a reply, and the post being bumped up in the Unread Posts column. I think we still have almost as many people browsing those threads, but most of us (myself included), are simply liking a post, rather than actually commenting if we don't have anything else to say.
  2. looks really good to me. The coloration strongly reminds me of the hot spring pools at Yellowstone.
  3. It's not really a Heinz Ketchup puzzle. Wanna know how I know this? If it was, the last few pieces would still be stuck to the bottom of the box and you'ld have to to pound on the bottom of it in a hopeless attempt to shake them free.
  4. The price isn't that bad for what you get - IF you want all or even just most of them. Plus for me, personally, I'd want metal over resin, which further increases the price. If I had the spare cash, I'd consider picking up one of the metal sets for the two I want, then selling off the rest at $15-20 a pop, but I don't have a spare $100 right now. I should rephrase that - I would love to have all of them, but practical me knows that I would only paint up the two I had a diorama idea for.
  5. Won't affect me quite like that because I don't contract with that manufacturer and none of my contracts include that manufacturer's equipment. It will help my biggest client, as that company is their biggest competitor. Once Sales finds out about this, they'll make it a point to add "no backdoor" back in as a sales point. It was a sales point years ago, but they stopped touting it because the competitor took it out. And you just know that they'll have a computer scanning the resumes looking for that keyword, and a large number of resumes that otherwise should pass won't pass that filter as a result.

    I figured there was some solid thinking behind taking this "shortcut"
  7. You're making it sound like a Michael Bay film I just found out that our major competitor has once again started shipping equipment with a backdoor wash code built into their latest generation of products for their distributors to use. I thought they would have learned their lesson back in 2000 when that code got out, and they spent tens of thousands of dollars sending distributor techs around patching the software to remove it. I spent three weeks upgrading every Conoco gas station car wash terminal in the Denver Metro area that year. I must investigate more...

    Looking good. Question on the IMM brush - I've seen you warn other sculptors about the trap of details being too uniform when methods like this are used. Since I've seen you warn others, I assume you're aware of that, and are/have taken steps to make sure you don't fall into that same trap?
  9. He's figure 1001 in the Bones 5 core set. He might have appeared as a monthly promotional figure, but it looks like we probably won't see him again for retail sales until B5 ships.
  10. It appears to be gone. IIRC, the title of the topic was literally Cookie Clicker, it was in Off-Topic Rampancy, and it was an old 2011-2013 thread that someone had posted to 17-18 days ago, at least according to how long I've been running my game. Searching for "cookie clicker" only brings up our recent discussion here, and a mention by Paradoxical Mouse in the Get to Know you thread from May 2018. I guess one of our mods decided to protect the rest of the forum by getting rid of the topic?
  11. @OneBoot and @Green Eyed Monster I know what happened regarding Cookie Clicker, because I, too, got sucked into it a couple of weeks ago. It's not exactly your fault, OneBoot - only indirectly. It was from an OLD thread that someone performed some thread necromancy on. I, too, saw OneBoot's old post in the thread about how it was a good game to just leave running and visit occasionally, and foolishly looked into it before realizing the post/thread was several years old. It was too late, the grandmas had sucked me in!
  12. My children usually drain me, but there are times they don't, and those incredible times when they super charge me.
  13. Congrats @OneBoot! Was @Pegazus in your yard? I've come to think of it as a sort of charge/drain/recharge cycle. Some people recharge with alone time, some people recharge with social interaction, and none of us have the exact same length of drain/recharge times. Oh, and then there are the people who completely short out our normal charge cycles, and a precious few others who can super charge us or make our charge last longer.
  14. 25 years ago, I would have found that surprising. But when I worked at Jim Dunlop fixing guitar pedals, I worked with four "rock stars" - in the USA they were playing club gigs and working full time factory jobs. But a couple times a year they would go on tour overseas. Three of them were part of a four man band that was huge in the Philippines and a couple other island nations. It was always such a let down for them to come back to work the ol' 9 to 5 after spending a month in high class hotels being chauffeured in limos and such. Their popularity there was short lived though - only lasted for a couple of years. The other guy was part of a trio that was becoming huge in Italy. He left the job to move to Europe with his bandmates to try to capitalize on it.
