That said, we drove to the city last night, found a very small spot, and I nailed it like a pro first try.

Did you try it blindfold? Cowboy

Haha... no, I kind of ignored what I thought I knew about what I should do and took a clean slate approach. I ended up backing into the spot at a sharper angle than usual, which seemed to do the trick.

I marveled several times that this triumph came right after my comment about my deficiencies in this area.

Ugh, Blue! PLEASE don't tell me you're one of those "I refuse to learn the simplest things in life, like parallel parking" types-of-people!

I moved out of the city right as I learned to drive, and have had to do so about 12 times in my life, as it is not a thing that happens in the suburbs.

That said, we drove to the city last night, found a very small spot, and I nailed it like a pro first try.

Glad it gave you the opportunity to rant.

Everyone has roaches. People who think they don't have roaches are just living in denial.

That was probably the case when I lived in New York City proper, but I can say with a high degree of confidence that we have no roaches here in the 'burbs.

My wife and I had to put our cat to sleep today. She'd had a stroke over the weekend, and when we came home today, we found her lying on the ground, seemingly paralyzed in her hind legs.

She was 13 years old.

Bye Tabby. We will miss you.

R.I.P. Tabby. My heart goes out to you and your wife.

btw, usually you want to be in the same room as the cooking process while it is happening

I wasn't clear enough, but the bell had already dinged signifying it was done a couple of minutes before I left the kitchen. I just didn't realize it was now broken and it stayed on after that.

EDIT: Hey Blue, looks like the link has an unclosed tag that autodirects the user to the videosift page. Makes it hard to comment.

Dang. Sorry about that.

Happy International Lefthanders Day!

Woot woot! I can't wait to write something down today and then smudge the ink with my hand!


An unfortunate daily occurrence for us left handers...


The worst for me is greeting cards, as the ink doesn't absorb into the thicker paper as fast, pretty much ensuring whatever I wrote comes off looking a mess...

My dad was a lefty and his way around this was to slant the paper to the point where he wrote vertically up the page. Pain in the neck for sure.

Hitchhiking Robot Lasts Just Two Weeks in US Because Humans Are Terrible.

Honestly surprised it didn't happen sooner.

That's how long it took to reach Philadelphia.


Is that shade towards Philly?


Isn't it always sunny in Philadelphia?

City of brotherly love indeed.

Yeah, that was a Philly dig. But in context, I am a New Yorker... that was actually my version of being nice about the place.

A Like system. Fosters community and easy to do.

At this point I'm looking at changes to the main page, the forums are going to be a whole other sticky wicket. But I'll comment on these suggestions.

Increase URL length limits.

Long URLs break the forum format, so the URL code is to fix that... just that people have a hard time working it.

Notify if a comment is added to a post you commented on. Keep the shit goin...

Already present.

Secondary, embed photo's/movies. Adds spice.

And porn, and more moderation issues. May be a tough bridge to cross.

Otherwise look and feel is good.

Other than that, how did you enjoy the show, Mrs. Lincoln?

Change nothing. It's great the way it is! Thumbsup

Drop down anything makes it difficult for mobile and tablet browsing.

How much worse can it be than the existing menu on mobiles with itty-bitty text links?

Is there a way to ignore users? Down-vote? Something? If not, it would be a huge improvement.

Click on a user's name and you will find the function to ignore them.

I had an iguana for many years and it was very friendly. It came when I called it and would climb up onto my shoulder. It would also lay on my while I sat on the couch. They can be very good pets when raised properly.

Here's a lizard that's very friendly.

I don't blame Buddy. He belongs to a young man who was just a little kid when they got him, and afraid to pick him up, so Buddy never got used to being handled. If he was, I'm not sure he'd have let me pick him up, but I doubt he would have been so determined to bite me.

Introversion surely knows the difference between an alpha and a beta, and should do their part to not cause people to start using them as synonyms.

Updated key to game development terms:

  • Pre-Alpha = Alpha

  • Alpha = Pre Beta

  • Beta = Beta

  • Release version = Public Beta

  • There you go. And finally:

  • Game of the Year Edition = Release version

    Looks like the clean install is still kinda messy.
    I don't understand why is it so hard to put an option into the installation menu to do a clean install.

    Agreed. MS used to be friendly to this, just requiring you insert the disks for qualifying products to do a clean install of an upgrade. I found this changed with Windows 7, however, as I was told by MS tech support that getting it to actually do a clean install from an upgrade disk was not possible. I was finally able to find a registry hack to allow this anyway, but it made me feel like a pirate just doing a clean install of an upgrade for which I paid. Not cool.
