I like the suggestion, though.

 

Do lawyers still use them in her majesties courts?  I think they did up to 10-15 years ago.

And that's the other side of the coin.  Don't let anyone do anything until everything looks so bad that no one can. 

Fortunately, the town I'm in appears to be more concerned about keeping up the image and viability of the town square, where most of the buildings also date to the late 1800s.  The big limits they have placed are on the facades, and they've been using grant money obtained from the state and various historical conservation groups to restore as many of them as possible, so a lot of their requirements aren't even coming down on the small business owners.  Behind the facades are a wide variety of businesses and uses. 

 

Here's the old high school

I know that the town is trying to find similar grant money for the building, but apparently they've been looking for it for a few years now, and no one is stepping up because of the cost. The school district only moved their admin offices out of it last year, so it's too early yet to see exactly how the battle is going to play out.  I know there are a lot of senior citizens here who went to school in that building, so it could be a real fight. 

I haven't really picked a side yet, because all the options aren't on the table yet.  I'm going to go with whichever option a) tries to uphold the history and look of the town and b) doesn't cost the taxpayers money we can't afford.  I'll fight against tearing it down to replace it with a Walmart or strip mall, but I'd probably be fine with tearing it down to replace it with a modern apartment building that paid homage to the old building. 

I've been in your town and yes, the Town Square is quite nice in its appearance.

Actually made me want to spend a couple of extra days there just to poke around.

It's currently on the long term to do list.

Not even "the dress code will be enforced". No, this is actually different. This is "people getting the union involved" different. The dress code is being entirely changed from "shorts of this length are fine, no bare shoulders or bellies, please keep the holes in your t-shirt to a minimum" to "guess WHUT it's suits or gtfo, show me your TIE".

AAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Manufacturer tech won't listen to me. He asked for my help on a weird problem.  I an 95% sure I've identified the problem, but he's not convinced I'm right, and won't try my solution - he's looking for something more complicated. 

You're not alone.  At 4:30 today i get an email saying that a piece of equipment isnt working and we need to fix it immediately!  NOW! NOW! this wont be tolerated any more!

 

All i could do is write back and tell them "you don't have that piece of equipment installed at your site"

I mean, I've been looking for an excuse to get back into crossdressing because I'm a tiny lady with huge [ahem] "tracts of land" and wearing men's clothes like that plays with people's expectations in ways that amuse me. But I want to acquire men's dress shirts, vests, and awesome suspenders on my own time under my own volition and not because I'm required to this weekend in order to keep my job :angry:

Holy crap - that destroys my image of IRS workers that had been destroyed by the first IRS worker I met wearing shorts and a Hawaiian shirt. ::o: 

 

It disturbs me that my false image is being made true.

If they want this, get your union to negotiate for "uniform allowance" because this is stupid and if management wants it they should pay for it.

Well, spending daily torture sessions with the weight set is beginning to pay off.

I now only possess one and a half chins rather than three. Why the fat is fleeing there first I haven't the slightest, but I ain't complaining.

from jason wiebe's facebook, so not officially announced but something that will be announced soon:

A couple of sculpts for Reaper's Australian Wildfire relief fund through the RSPCA. Details to be posted soon, but they are kicking it off with 5K! You'll have a chance to buy these little miniatures for this very important cause.

 

Jason Wiebe Reaper will have them for benefit sale asap. Likely early mid next week.

(I will be referring to my DnD-friends by their DnD names)

 

[email protected]!!!!!!!

 

Story time:

 

I've had a really hard week; with the news of @Jasonator and other things super SUPER similar things I will not go in to... this as been a S&*(&*&* week."::: Sunday night was amazing then the tide turned. I was truly looking forward to DnD Wednesday night. I walk up to the door and knocked in my very rhythmic  fashion: Billy Yum Yum answers the door with her trade mark happy grin and I responded with a happy dutch accent.... I don't know why... but apparently I have not used that accent in front of them before - the entire DnD group being their already because "a wizard arrives precisely when he means too" - THEY LOVE IT. Eostin, Ruby, Erso, and the rest greeted my dutch-vocals with glee! Back story to that; we are all planning for the new new campaign are DM is planning... something around a sink hole, base on an anime i have not seen. Anywhoo, I start talking like this and everyone's face lights up. So now my Goblin Arcane Trickster is now a dutch accented goblin partially raised by gnomes. The miniature being a Rebel Mini from their villager line. Who was adopted by gnomish parents that are killed and the boy is brought into the goblin culture a little late but adapts... still maintain his dutch-ish accent... and to add to that their is a half-giant following me around recording his stories... a stenographer. ( I don't know why but the joke came up organically so I went with it. And I might play that as something he only sees. LOL.)

 

The week has been cray-cray! I wanted to added that my adventure on Sunday night at The City Winery In Atlanta. I saw a live show of, Hello From The Magic Tavern, and it was amazing (Photo below!). You should all start Listening to this podcast! YOU WOULD LOVE IT!

Thank you for reading this far. I'm typing this at a late hour for me... RANDOM! Like i have mentioned, it's been a hard week and even though  I am not on here as much as I use to I still think of all of you and check up regularly. I wish life would allow me to come to reaperCon one year to meet as many as I can. 2020 is going to be a crazy year... It has been thus far! 

 

THANK YOU REAPER COMMUNITY

This is not my usual rant about an individual owner that won't upgrade - this one is about a corporation.  I'm putting this one in a timeline, because it paints the bigger picture with fewer words. 

1996 -  Car Wash Teller Gen 1 system designed and released. Gen 1 teller designs are based on tech * tech manufacturer had been using in Gas & Oil field industry since mid 80s. 
1999 - Customer X installs Gen 1 Teller systems at multiple sites from their regional distributor
2002 - I begin working for the master US distributor of these systems
2003-  Gen 2 teller system designed and released using latest chip sets
2005 - Gen 1 teller system discontinued, remaining systems put on sale, tentative end of life is estimated to be 2010

2006 - last Gen 1 teller sold
2006 - I start my contract with the manufacturer when the master US distributor closes

2007 - Customer X's regional distributor goes out of business. I begin handling all service with Customer X's head service tech. Since I had dealt with him a few times over the last fibve years already, we're already on a first name basis. 

2012 - Effective end of life for Gen 1 teller systems is reached as we no longer have many critical parts to repair them. All Gen 1 customers advised to budget to replace tellers. and do so at their earliest convenience. 
2012 - Dial up credit card processing support for new customers is discontinued due to changes in Payment Card Industry rules. All existing dial up customers are advised their current provider is currently grandfathering them, but changing their merchant number for any reason will require upgrading to internet credit card clearing.

2014 - Gen 3 teller system designed and released

2014 - Backwards compatibility of control computer with Gen 1 systems is formally dropped. All Gen 1 customers are advised of this
2016 - Customer X is purchased by a larger corporation, thus requiring new merchant numbers, thus requiring an upgrade of the control computers to internet.  Customer X and their new owners are advised that they should buy new tellers as new software may not be 100% compatible with their old system.  Customer X declines, and upgrades control computer only, leaving Gen 1 tellers in place. 
2017-2019 - Customer X advised multiple times that the situation is growing more dire and their tellers are obsolete. Head tech there is pretty good, and they have replaced one site, so they're limping along the 3 remaining sites with parts from that site and old tellers they've bought from other regional sites who've pulled out Gen 1 tellers, including their biggest competitor in the area. 
2020 (today) - Customer X head service tech calls because they can't get Feature Y to work for a new fleet customer at one of their locations.  Feature Y hasn't worked on Gen 1 tellers since 2014 - only legacy fleet accounts created before 2014 and marked as "don't convert" during the upgrade process will work. Gen 2 tellers require a different method that is incompatible with Gen 1 tellers. Customer X once again advised that they need to replace their Gen 1 tellers. 

Since they've been using the new software for 3.5 years, and just now noticed that Feature Y no longer works for new fleet accounts, it was hard to have sympathy for the problems this is going to cause them with their new fleet customer, which is a local Police Department. :lol:

What makes this funnier is that the same parent corporation just replaced a Gen 2 teller with a Gen 3 one when they purchased a smaller operator in a different state and were advised the control computer needed the internet update if they wanted it to take credit cards. They chose to just replace the entire system, rather than deal with the upgrade, at 4x the cost.    That tells me that the corporation's wallet isn't the problem, it's the people specifically in charge of Customer X's locations. Or it's because the head tech is too good at keeping old equipment running.

When BAM had its PoS software and systems put in there was ONE person in the installation company that had to do every store with the PoS system.

 

And he wasn't available.

 

So our Admin user name remained Admin, with a password IMBEDDED IN THE SOFTWARE that was CHANGEME.

 

On a PoS interface.

 

And it remained that way for two years until that ONE person could fit us in his schedule. That's two years for US. The bug had been there for years before that.

 

Because he had written a patch for the problem, but wasn't allowed to put it in general distribution because he was not one of the software engineers from the company that wrote the software, and they didn't want to contract him for that patch.

 

He boasted that the patch didn't even take a half meg.

 

But weird contracts gave only him the rights to install that half meg patch, and only for his clients, and only through that one company using the software that they were authorized support and distribution for.

 

For thousands of stores in hundreds of chains.

 

As long as he was the only one installing it, it counted as "field testing".

 

And he only had that right because the patch was a candidate for general distribution that never happened.

 

Because they were working on a new version of the software that NEVER HAPPENED. And the software company had outsourced tech support to India.

 

He HATED that patch, and if he had known how big a chunk of his life it was going to screw up he would have posted it on the net, rather than trying to go through channels. He was running from location to location for the better part of ten years.

 

For an installation and testing that only took an hour at each location.

 

But once his name was on it as a candidate, he COULDN'T PUT IT ON THE NET.

 

And there were a vast number of similar patches, and if he ever had to work on a system with one of those unofficial patches he had to make a Batch file of all the data, erase the data, revert the system to its unaltered state, load the Batched data, test it, install HIS test version of the patch, and test it again.

 

We were a security breach, but kept the Admin and CHANGEME, because OUR contract would have been breached if we had installed any of those unofficial patches ourselves. But, fortunately we never even knew about those patches. Because our management didn't include any Sys Admins, or techies in general.

 

But the Inventory and database on the software really was top notch.

 

It was ONLY the PoS that we had licensed as part of the corporate bundle that was the problem.

 

You can take PoS to mean either Point of Sale, or...

 

Then I was reading an urban fantasy short story, where the werewolf was a Sys Admin, and he was kvetching about THAT EXACT SAME BUG! I instantly knew that Patricia Briggs had had to use that exact same PoS!

 

And it was going to be a permanent resident in her head. ::P:

 

 

What I find disturbing is that I am pretty sure my own similar story was a different piece of software, from a completely different company - Lotus 1 2 3, during those hazy years between when IBM stopped supporting the software and its ancillary programs, and when they stopped selling Lotus. Lotus was great - the payroll program that was companion software was a buggy... PoS. ::P: And, yes, the patch was unofficial, from Nuts_N_Bolts - a bulletin board. Using FIDONet. (Like I said - pretty sure Lotus was long gone by the time B-A-M! took over the local Border's.)

 

And I immediately realized that Patricia Briggs was describing Lotus....

 

Page XPress was another bug ridden program - with no competing software to force to them fix the mess or lose sales. (Every time I saw See Page XX in a White Wolf product, I knew that they were still using Page XPress.)

 

Then Adobe released InDesign - their DTP - for less than the cost of an upgrade to Page XPress. (Those glory days, when Adobe products were considered reasonably priced.)

 

The Auld Grump

 

*EDIT* Ye gads - FIDONet is still around! https://www.fidonet.org/

      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).

      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!

      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)
