Q: 1 AUG

Does it annoy you that the font size drop down selector does not exist on the version of the forum software mobile devices are allowed to access?

 

No, I rarely use the phone for that and when I do I know the Phone can't do everything the PC can.

What time of day do you usually browse the forums?

 

Yes.

I have two screens at work, so I usually have a tab open for the Forum on those, and I do browse after work as well.

Follow up from the final July question, Did you finish what was on your workbench last weekend? 

 

RULE 1 - If I put something on the workbench it doesn't mean I have to do anything with it....

I almost never use my phone to check the forums, so no.

8:45 to 9:30 am primarily.  I also seem to have a daily team meeting from 8:45 to 9:30 am.  Could there be a correlation? 

I may pop on at other times when I think of it, but will often not get on at all on the weekends or when I'm on vacation.

I haven't read the final July question yet (see above about not getting on the forums while on vacation) but as nothing on my workbench has gotten finished in the last....while, I'm confident the answer is a definite NO.

Some of it. I got my orc and golem done that were in the "in progress" pile. And I finished up the figurehead from the bones pirate ship and a fountain from Dungeons and Lasers. Several other things are almost done.

Well, I finished repotting my plants, which was what I set out to do this weekend.

Nope, but I made progress on it. Focus was on color mixing in a more realistic fashion, taming the palette and gaining some more control over it. Sky has a first color added, the red/brown parts are the underpainting. I paint loosely based on the classical method, so there will be a few more layers for the sky (as well as actually starting in on the rocks, water, and ship heh!).

Depends on the day.  On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday I start at breakfast after reading the newspaper online. On the days of physical papers, I start latter in the day.  Nevertheless, I will return several times during the day to read the forum.

Actually, yes. Got couplers and trucks switched on several model railroad cars.

Weekdays: 6:30 to 7:00 am, then whenever I need a break in the day.
Weekends: Almost never

Nope.  I didn't get much further since.  I mostly got sidelined into working on some Dark Sword prints.  I really need to focus on my RCon MSP Open entry, if I want it done in time to leave for TX. 

 

I did get through a bunch of gold refinement, but that has been resting since Sunday.  It is now ready to harvest the precipitated gold from the Aqua Regia; I'm hoping to get about an ounce of 24K gold out of this run.

Q: 4 AUG

How long has it been since your internet connection went belly-up or otherwise failed?

I dont know,  a few years, perhaps.

 

Are we including acts of nature?
