Behind schedule, probably over budget, and not the mother of blizzards they were suggesting, but it seems there is something to be said for a booster of adorned onions and verbal abuse....

 

Ahhh, so that explains it.

 

You're belittlement of the weather system terrified it so much that it stalled out here.  Instead of 1-2" we ended up with 6".

 

The good news is that even my very lightly traveled street is 95% cleared.

What is it with video on the chats.  I there are only one or two people in my company who have their camera enabled and they usually get catcalled until they turn it off.  The last thing I want to see at 8 in the morning is my boss's face.  I am also pretty sure the last thing anyone wants to see is mine. 

 

I don't know, but I personally feel it is my duty to share my bald, bushy bearded, ugly visage smiling at all of my colleagues first thing in the morning. Whether or not they like this is up for some debate though.

Mailchimp's web builder is very un-intuitive. I could transfer my domain name over to WordPress but that would still make me pay for the account upgrade AND a website mapping fee every year. So that would be even more expensive than just upgrading the WP account. <_<

In my company, most people turn off the video to save bandwidth.   Only about 10% leave it on in meetings. 

They also instituted a temporary 10% paycut for most everyone. Including all executives and managers. In exchange people are getting 15 extra days off.  My division has so much work however that the engineers and engineering assistants are exempt. So no lowering of my pay, but no free 15 days off either. 

I think I would have preferred the days off actually....  

The CEO is taking a 20% cut,  I thought that was a nice move on his part.

A little face-to-face is good for morale. Lord knows I just sit there and look at myself the entire time to make sure my face doesn't look fatter than it already is the entire time I'm on cam tho.

 

 

What a good night's sleep I had! A delightful and increasingly rare surprise. Good morning to everyone except the elves, who in their pointy self-importance choose not to sleep at all.

I'd happily trade 10% for 15 days off.  Heck, I'd give 5% just to get the days off I'm supposed to....  doesn't look like That s going to happen though.  Sales are off but not by that much and we are starting to get contracts for excessive orders when the stay at home orders in some states lift, whenever that is.  Nice to know we have some additional business in the future...

Let me put it this way - we got it for hubby, and I was regularly looking over towards his desk, or I'd go to make a snack or coffee and wind up watching for five minutes.  Not many games do that to me, especially one I didn't enjoy anywhere near as much as 2A, 8, and 9...

 

Sort of spoiler under the spoiler, but it's a scene anyone who's played the original knows

Today is not going well.

 

Hurt my back bad doing my morning exercises (stupid squats! :angry:) and now I can't escape, my housemates constant whining is really starting to get on my nerves.

 

Hopefully, I can stand up long enough to make dinner, it's a new recipe I've been looking forward to making (Sri Lankan Crab and Prawn Curry). 

 

Good news!

I managed to make dinner, now I'm too full of crabby goodness to care about anything else.

It could be worse, these workers had to conduct an entire online meeting with their boss that had accidentally turned herself into a potato with the video streaming software. I honestly don't know how they kept their composure ::D:

Are you sure the potato head was an accident?

A boss with a twisted/evil sense of humor could pull something like that deliberately just as a test for how well their staff holds up when sent a curve ball.

When my boss and I chat, it's just a voice call, but there are some meetings that seem to have almost everyone on video. At least using Teams or Zoom we can put on a cool background. I use the warp core of the Enterprise D as my background. 

 

I wonder if Skype can do that. I've tried Skype twice. 

 

Do you need a green screen?

Well, it was one of her employees that put the photo online so I'm guessing that they failed :lol:

 

Did anyone see the priest that accidentally turned on the filters during a live online sermon?

I would like universities to start using it again.

 

Plus i think it would be revenge against people who have insulted me for using SL.

I'd rather see them use tabletop simulator. it has a flip table button

      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).

      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!
      (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.
