Is “the coop” your new gig ?  Or is that something else?  (Who works on Sundays outside of a retail operation?)

The co-op is the local grocery store that I'm a member of. You have to be a member to shop there, and have to work a shift every 4 weeks to be a member. My usual shift is the same weekend as the marathon, that I have to work as part of my new real paying job, so I need to swap, and I found a swap for today. 

 

My bride decided to take a Lyft, so getting to start the laundry early.

Not just you, the magic system in Oblivion is significantly better than Skyrim, and generally the game feels like there is more to it.

 

Saying that as someone who has completed Oblivion a few times (with all expansions) compared to not actually ever getting to the end of Skyrim...

I just wish the faces looked less like dough.

 

And do I hate the dark elf across the hall in the prison?

 

Oh, yes. Yes I do. I was trying to find a lockpick so I could cross the hall and murderate him when I heard the guards and the Emperor.

 

Really well done on the Emperor.

 

 "Do you think that prisoner has followed us?"

 

 "I KNOW she has." :blink:  BUSTED! :lol:

You need food talk?

 

Spareribs are in the oven, marinated in Boemboe Babi Ketjap.

Salad is ready,

Jacket Potatoes coming up

White Beans in Tomato Sauce.

I'm making fresh Apple Sauce

And some Nacho Cheese Doritos on the side.

Ohhhhh excitement over numbers.  

 

Not going to touch on it except to like bomb all posts.

You are a wise man woman. ( Whoops! :wacko: )

 

I've heard Grump tearing apart the math in game design.

 

For a man that claims not to like math, he does a lot of number crunching.

 

And then TELLS YOU ABOUT IT! Nuking the site from orbit Shutting him down fast is the only way to be sure.

It was only the other day I found out what I was doing wrong with jacket potatoes: Everything.

 

I was cooking at 350 for an hour.

 

Then I discovered that it is supposed to be 400 for TWO hours.  <_<

 

I never thought to ask or even check.

 

Baked potatoes, how hard could it be? :wow:

 

Potatoes, oven. Easy! ::D:

It's preferable to some of the previous recent topics.

 

That sounds very good, BTW.

Earlier this week, the refrigerator portion of our refrigerator became not very cold at all, while the freezer portion became super cold.  We had to throw out a lot of food. ::(:. So we emptied out both sections, hubby found a huge amount of cat hair underneath, blocking an air intake, plus the cooler coils were completely frozen over.

@Green Eyed Monster and @Mad Jack. You're both headed for the buzzy place here shortly!  I am not touching that conversation.

You will note that I have made one observation on how the real world works and one response to an observation about my observation.

All other remarks are beyond my control.

There are plenty of ways "an observation about how the real world works" could get one thrown into Beekeepers.

 

Or in my case, arrested then fired. In that order :ph34r:

So we emptied out both sections, hubby found a huge amount of cat hair underneath, blocking an air intake, plus the cooler coils were completely frozen over.  After defrosting it all night, we cleaned up the water mess and turned it back on, and luckily it is working again.  We are buying some dedicated thermometers for the unit, so we can stave off any future problems like this.

 

In other news, I am going in my second business trip ever on Monday, attending two days of meetings to discuss some new functionality the customer wants added.  I am there to assess the impact to my specific team, and there is a platform guy going as well for the overall systems impact.  Have to do 2 flights each way, since there is almost nothing direct from our local airport.  I come back on Thursday.  Should be interesting.

While the modern refrigerator-freezer is a tribute to the development of consumer technology it still has the one flaw of needing the refrigeration parts cleaned very once in a while.  The frequency depends on how much dust circulates through the area, and even more, the quantities of hair and fur that are generated by the inhabitants of the area where the unit resides.

We currently have no hair/fur generating pets but the rate at which I randomly shed hair makes up for that.  An annual cleaning is a necessity for us and I would recommend a similar schedule for everyone else reading this as a preventative for this kind of grief.

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      Super black. Critical threat!
      20
      9039
      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
       
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

    • By WhiteWulfe
      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!
      (end edit)

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
       
      Baby needs a bath first.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
