Since getting a new phone, I’m convinced that the tiny drunk elf running my auto corrupt is experimenting with hallucinogenics.  I’ve gotten some very weird “corrections”.

My method for dealing with autocorrupt is to turn the bloody benighted thing completely off.

I will use a spell checker, set for American English.  This gives me a red squiggly underline that then gives me the opportunity to choose my preferred spelling from a pre-generated list or introduce the idiot box to a word it hasn't encountered before.



Maybe autocorrupt devices are part of a vast conspiracy to embarrass the gadget using populace into learning to spell for themselves.

This why chicken and dumplings were invented.

Everybody was packing up their offices today. Offices? Cubicles. Anyway, half of us are moving to a facility the opposite direction of my commute, and the other half moves up the road to a temporary location for a few months then will be joining us at the remote location. Not happy about losing my nice nature walks at lunch. Am happy I can hit Harbor Freight like every day.


Still have a driving desire to make a Gannt (or whatever) chart for my ReaperCon entry. Might do that tonight, as I have to use the work machine for that and need to be off the clock. Did clean the painting desk last night so I can in theory do some actual hobby work.

Debating where or not to take advantage of MM offer on the Falling Star ship. Price it's at is almost equal to what hte Unpainted version is. Deciding factors is I wanna support my local shop with the purchase, I can slowly pay the purchase vs all up front & dangit I like the Unpainted line. Still it's tempting.

It was a back-pressure issue. Plus, as a result of cost reduction measures, the exhaust port was dual-purposed for the trash compactor output, and you can imagine the mess that would have resulted if there had been a grate in front of that. Government contracts, donchaknow.


If the exhaust port was being used for trash output, then they definitely needed an anti-backflow valve. You don't want all sorts of garbage ending up in your reactor because it managed to go the wrong way. That's how you end up with reactor maintenance issues and power outages.


Edit: Wow. Apparently the post office in Monroeville, PA attempted to deliver a package to me but we're unable to because "driveway/front door was inaccessible." No crap it was inaccessible, it's almost 2 hours south of you in a different state! Otherwise, my front door is about 20 feet from the curb and the only obstructions near it are a couple trash cans.

I think he tried to use a tablet, autocorrupt is a thing, I know to watch for it, him, Fire neophyte that he is, did not.


This message brought to you by the Society to Give Megan O'Grump an Excuse to Use Neophyte in a Sentence. ::P:


I turned autocorrupt off on my Fire. I may not get fewer typos, but at least I know they're MINE!


Sadly, what really happened was 'Well, that's wrong. That's okay, I'll fix it before hitting Submit!'




I actually planned on correcting it, then... didn't. :blush:




Going over our Reaper Wishlists - to put together an order so we can get the Juggernaut.


Lots of overlap, this time.


Vermina, the other Vermina, Barrow Rats, Rats, Rat Swarm, Bat Swarm, Giant Bats, Mathias the Twisted, Boren Backslap.


Each of us wants a Vermina - I want the newer one, Megan wants the older one (I already painted one of her, but Megan has plans for hers). Both of us want bats and rats, and both of us want Mathias, while Megan wants Boren the rat catcher.


You'd almost think both of us are running low level Urban games, right now....


I was kind of surprised not to see either Vermina with the steampunk Bones in the KS.

I have discovered that my spelling is not just Australian but also archaic. Multiples of dwarf to me are dwarves, just as roof is to rooves, and staff is to staves. Apparently that spelling is acceptable but archaic. WUT? I'm not that old.:blink: I *always* fight with spell checkers.

You know, I once talked with a man from Poland - his family didn't believe him when he told them that Americans have to use computers to check their spelling. They thought he was making  a Dumb Americans joke.

Okay.  Got my "Sara the Seeress" from my RCon hair class all prepped to finish up.  We'll see if I can get her done before hubby gets home late Friday.  


Prescription for antibiotics is safely waiting to see if youngest can kick her sinus infection without them.  Things seem to be under control, hoping to keep them that way.  <fingers crossed>

I have a paella pan that I seem to use primarily for gigantic cookies.


But... they're peanut butter cookies... I don't own a fork big enough for a 2 foot cookie ::P:

Why do you need a fork? Cookies should be eaten with your hands...

I agree on dwarves and staves. I've never used rooves.

I just had lunch and tried a veggie chiliburger for once.

Let's just say that I will not turn vegetarian in the upcoming 30 years.

Good on you for trying it.

Even better of you to report back that it's as horrible as I imagined it to be. Now I don't need to go try if myself.:winkthumbs:

I was given a turkey burger without being told what it was once; I could tell that it wasn't right with the first bite. I didn't like it, and that was at least still meat. I don't imagine that a veggie burger would be any better.

If I want a hamburger, I want it made the right way, with ham!

Well, I guess I'm old right along with you, 'cause that's how I spell those words, too. Well, not rooves, never thought about that one, but the other two for sure.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      All HAIL WOOF!

      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. 


      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). 

      Reaper #
      Color Name
      Color Description
      Fire Red
      Bright red
      Clotted Red
      Dull red
      Lava Orange
      Volcanic orange
      Orange Brown
      Dull orange
      Lemon Yellow
      Bright yellow
      Brilliant green
      Bright green
      Olive Green
      Olive dull green
      True Blue
      Bright blue
      Heather Blue
      Dull light blue
      Imperial Purple
      Deep purple
      Violet Red
      A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet.
      Blush Pink
      Very pink
      Earth Brown
      Generic brown
      Terran Khaki
      Light brown
      Mint Green
      Bright pastel green
      Cloudy Grey
      Generic grey
      Marine Teal
      Teal, blueish
      Palomino Gold
      Earthy gold yellow
      Pure Black
      Super black. Critical threat!
      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.

      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!

      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.
