Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

Recommended Posts

Months ago, I scheduled PTO for Wednesday thru Friday.  Fast forward through months of short staffing, long hours, and Dilbert meets Office Space.  This past week, I rather enjoyed the look on several suits' faces as I declined meeting requests and project task assignments for those days.  They started scrambling, trying to cram more into Monday and Tuesday, and even looking for commitments to deadlines as early as September 4 & 5.

 

I rather enjoyed the look on their faces as I told them my plans had changed, I will be taking PTO all week.

Tell them you know a good geologist?

( @Cyradis ...)

Scheiss is a type of granite, right?

 

Metamorphic, due to being under a lot of pressure :poke:

Hmm, both schiess and scheiss are words in German. (I'd recommend not confusing them.) :rolleyes:

 

But I can't find either in English. Though both gneiss and schist are metamorphic rocks in English.

 

What am I missing?

You aren't. I assumed that scheiss was a misspelling of schist and rolled with it.

But they work perfectly in that order ...

 

#wiseguy: In both versions, you write them using ß, which is sz, not ss.

I would too, but I didn't feel like looking up the ASCII for sz (since I'm using an English language keyboard).

 

(For non German speakers, 'sz' ('ß') sounds pretty well exactly like ss; it's an unvoiced sibilant.)

IIRC, it's alt + 0223.

… I know this, because German classes.

@ReaperAHawk, has there been any word as to whether or not the swag bags will be available in the online store again this year?

 

Yes, they will be available online at reapermini.com the week AFTER ReaperCon. :)

I had a teacher who did just that.

 

It made her comments about the soccer game rather...vivid.

Wonderful! Will it just be the regular swag bags, or will the VIP one be available as well? Asking for a friend (and myself ::):).
