  1. None! Used to wear Drakar Noir but stopped at some point over a decade ago and never used anything else after that. My work place has had a number of scent-sensitive employees over the years so it was just easier to not worry about it. A woman wearing Trésore (by Lancome) perfume teleports my brain back to my first girlfriend from highschool for an instant... Love that smell.
  2. I assembled my Elegoo Neptune 2 3D printer, made several meals, though nothing special.
  3. I hope to go back to the office part time. I LOVE LOVE LOVE not having to commute but I miss talking to people face to face, going across the street to a pub to trouble shoot things (my management is pretty awesome!), keeping in touch with folks that I didn't work with closely but would bump in to... Based on what we're hearing at this stage, sometime in the Winter folks will start moving back but 80% of workstations will no longer be assigned. Need to get the kids back to school though. My daughter is a social creature and she was running on fumes emotionally by the time things start
  4. Mine should be here tomorrow... why do I have sooooo many meetings tomorrow? It's going to be so hard to focus while waiting for the doorbell to ring. Haven't told the kids yet so Thursday should be fun digging through everything with them.
  5. I would say that in most instances I fall in the Host role. I host 95% of our games (all rollplaying, all wargaming and just about all board gaming). I have the dedicated space, by design. Even some of the games that belong to the other players are stored in my basement as we play there (well, in the Before Times, hopefully to resume soon...). I provide the figures for our rollplaying games (Bones!!) and 3d print what is missing, regardless of who is DMing. When we do play board games elsewhere, usually to accommodate someone, I more often than not bring at least one of the games to the s
  6. Nope! I'm a bit of a planner so even when on vacation, I know what day it is... Plus I'm the family cook and we plan out the meals for the week so knowing what I'm cooking is important!
  7. Thank you! That was the idea... problem was that I painted the base almost a year ago and had only basecoated the dragon... While I knew more or less what I had done to the base, there was still some guess-work involved to try to match the armor plates to the stone on the base... It's not perfect, but it's close enough.
  8. After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again. Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash. It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed. Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green. Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste.
  9. I'm pretty sure if I bring another Zombicide game into the house (after Zombicide 2 comes...) my wife is going to murder me. I've got pretty much all of it thus far and we do play it a lot. That said, the whole West theme doesn't do it for me so other than reading through the rulebook to see what special rules hey have have come up with that are worth including in our current versions. Think I'm safe on this one...
  10. Hmm on a scale of 1-10, I was probably in the realm of 7-8. I was responsible enough when it came to jobs, but there was a lot of skipping school, drinking, smoking of various things and general shenanigans that make me cringe now. Managed to keep a lot of it under wraps from my folks or they chose not to intercede because they were usually too busy giving my poor brother a hard time.
  11. Awesome! welcome to the 3d printer family!!
  12. We are apparently going into lockdown again as of December 24th. I guess it’s one way to avoid Christmas gatherings that people would have had despite all the pleading and warnings. My parents are NOT going to take this well, but then again they’re the ones really at risk here. Waiting for the official announcement today at 1pm before I call my mum. our city has been doing well (government/tech city where it has been relatively easy for most to work from home) but the rest of the province is not...
  13. So after many failed prints (tried a new resin combo that worked great on the test files, both the cityscape and the flat one) and getting ready to bang my head against a table, I switched resins to Epax hard resin and finally had some success... this is on my Saturn. Been trying some water washable elegoo resin on the Mars with reasonable results. i really like the feel of this epax resin. I used their settings though I did reduce the bottom layer curing time by 1s as the first try I though I was going to need a hammer and chisel to remove the prints. One second less ans they came off
  14. I got myself (from the kids) the new Ecto1 Lego kit. It's been in a crate in the furnace room with the rest of the xmas gifts for weeks...
  15. While they can become too much, well timed puns had become a staple at my gaming table. With the restrictions I'm a little dry on puns these days though my son (11) is starting to warm up them. They're not great, but he's learning. Don't have any specifics from this year but one of my favorites ones that got me chased around the table as a player was trying to bean me (and it's not even fully a pun I don't think... ). After defeating a small squad of ninja (Rokugan setting in D&D), one player asked how many ninja-tos (ninja swords) there were, my response, "It's
  16. Being the "town that fun forgot" is apparently paying off here. I am lucky that I live in a relatively small city (1M with the surrounding areas) that is predominantly a government city with a fair bit of high tech as well. Means that a significant portion of the population has been able to work from home which has seen us come down from our second wave quite quickly. Less people off work also means many of the smaller businesses are still around too because folks are trying to support their local restaurants/stores. My wife and I have spent a fair bit of money on setting up home offices
  17. Nothing much in the way of mischief... As a youth, we'll just leave that information locked away, but there was plenty... Love fire. The heat from it in the winter and flicker of flames is so relaxing and the smell from a good bonfire that stays with you after curl up to sleep.. mmmmm...
  18. So strangely enough, had the same problem occur again. Different printer (Mars this time, not the Saturn), different USB... I'm wondering if Chitubox is being weird... I'm saving to my drive before I copy to my USB as I always do... running out of culprits here... Latest print were tiny bikes for use in Gaslands so it's not going to be very noticeable, but I'm going to try re-slicing and doing it again after I reformat the USB in hopes of minimizing this...
