Thank you Hun <3 I love Inori, she's so pretty *__*
Ok my home internet is dead this evening so I have to finish this on my phone. x(
They aren't meant to and usually don't. This was a rare occurrence admittedly coz the guy said he had nothing to do for the rest of the day. (I did, but how do you tell ppl to go without sounding rude/mean :/)
I've had too many times where it's told me too many characters for me to not mind how much I'm typing at this point. xP
Yeah, that's a good point. Didn't think about how it would look on here. I'll stick to this one. xP
Aiming to cut this down by another 1. ^^ But yes, less scrolling/page going is always a plus. xP
Funny how I'm the one reminding you of your past when I'm 6/7 years older. xP Not that I act it.
Or look it.
...or sound it.
I've never met any friends I've made online IRL before, so this'll be a first. And nope, not an AL event. I'm going to see A Silent Voice with Michan and Sykas and we're going to a Japanese restaurant first too (or Noodles restaurant as Michan calls it :p).
The problem with meeting people at AL events is the whole 'lots of people' thing as we've discussed previously. So, much the same as you I imagine from what you've said, I'd struggle to talk to people or even seem appealing to talk to.
Same here tbh. Programming stuff is long haha.
He's hoping to do research full time in which case he avoids the coventional route of getting a job... I think. I don't really know what happens exactly. He should just bite the bullet and get used to talking to people more (past me would probably hate me for saying that though lol).
It's a hard system to get right to be fair. Making changes taking into account the past, present and future circumstances and trying to find a solution for everyone is not a job I'd ever want. It's near impossible.
Haha, nice link (seewhatIdidthere). xP Figured you'd say something like that though.
That sounds convenient. My parents are 2 hours away travelling down south, so not really an option for me. xP
Yeah, I end up doing little bits at a time coz of work. I took so long on one message the other day the page timed out to the point I had to copy my stuff and completely leave the page to get the post to work. :/
Where we 'normally' talk... So I just need to talk enough there til it feels more natural. ^^
Hmm, touché at the Rock Slide. Why is Rock good against Flying anyway? Ever tried to hit a bird in the air with a stone? I haven't, but I'm sure it's pretty hard. xP
*keeps spirits high about journal*
Vandal Hearts had elevation as a factor, as well as bonuses when attacking if another member was adjacent to your attack target (physical attacks only). I forget if FE has this but the direction a character is facing also matters. It's quite an old game but it got a good reception and I'd say it's aged pretty well so if you have a PS emulator kicking about...
Maybe they're at the very edges of the respective terrain types? xP
I do think maybe you're underestimating to scale of the program you'd need to create though for such a game. :p
But they're so old and pretty. xP
This took me ages coz I was trying to do it in the gaps I had during work when my code was compiling and whatnot, but then someone came over and spoke to me for like 30-45 minutes and I couldn't get rid of them. I wanted to work if nothing else. :'(
I'm on the fence about the gif now. It might not look so good when it's that small plus it runs a bit fast. I can slow it down, but... I dunno. Not so sure now.
You could have made that at most 5 if you'd merged some of them. I think you just didn't want to post less VMs and lose your spot in the stats. xP
Don't worry, I cut it down for you.
That's a good way of doing it. My way is more to get the VM count down so I don't have to scroll so far. Not that I mind you saying a lot of course - I like having lots to read. Too lazy to resize windows (I know it probably ends up easier. I'm just weird like that xP). I often need to write a few bits at a time (like now) too, so alt-tabbing back to just the one window is easier.
Aww, that's a shame. I thought you might have at least met Ryu, but a 24 hour drive each way is a lot so I don't blame you for not wanting to. I guess I'm not so used to online relationships - up until AL, practically everyone I had on Steam or Skype or other stuff I'd already met IRL. But that's obviously changed now. I still do want to try and meet some of the people I'm meeting on here though. Going to for the first time too on Thursday!
One day I'll do live chat, and I'll rope in my good buddy drill to come suffer with me! > xP
Yeah, I've gone through that too. After working here and going to so many team lunches and things, now I just go off on my own most of the time and watch Youtube while I eat. We're such introverts.
That'd be why snow doesn't bother me as much as you then. ^^ Because when it does happen over here we're usually not prepared for it, when we do get a decent amount it can cause things to close or shutdown. I feel bad for all the little kiddies that won't get free time off school because it never snows hard enough for the schools to close these days. xD
Just reply to them when you can I guess. I think both of our paces have slowed down recently (mine not so much on the journal tho ).
On the PhD thing, I believe he got a lil bit of inheritance but for the most part he's got a big loan to pay off. He's done it purposely though - he never really spoke much and I think he's actually really shy around most people, even more so than I was. So he just wanted to dodge needing to get a job and do interviews.
Yay! I would like you as an interviewer then.
It is kind of a silly name, yes. xP And yeah, I tried to do it too, but I couldn't find a placement (place to work for a year) that I particularly liked and could do, so I didn't in the end.
It's good that you've already got a system for extra tax when renting like that in place. I just hope we're not too late in implementing our version here. I guess it does inflate the prices for people wanting to rent though so it has it's downsides.
I see I've yet to get you invested in the journal. ^^ Oh well, early days yet I suppose.
I'll look forward to the Novel stuff. Then we discuss it in the journal too! Two Spearows with one Rock Throw.
Aww, don't say that. But okay, we'll see I guess. I'm not going to force it if you do end up not wanting to do it. xP
Yeah the programming project would turn out to be quite a large thing to do, so I would definitely recommend being a bit less busier than you currently are at least.
It's cool they let you configure your runs through the other routes to that degree so you can play it your own way at least.
Oh, I guess you mean you prefer the text box at the bottom. Does it help to say you can choose to hide the text temporarily if you want to see just the image? (probably not since you don't like the graphics anyway xD)
Oh, I'd never have guessed he'd only been around that long. It seems like he knows and speaks to everyone!
Ok so that all took me an hour and a half haha. I was distracted by Skype chat though, in my defence.
Speak to you tomorrow on Steam perhaps.
(Also, REALLY tempted to have that Furret gif I posted in the Journal as my avatar xP)
You know I just noticed it's not just me that takes over an hour to do this stuff. xD
And yeah, I need to go back to do the same thing (check what I said - see I'm helping ^^). I've actually forgotten if I mentioned this at all but my memory is shocking too and only really works well with gaming related stuff. Memorise all the different abilities and best talent specs in HotS? Done. Remember what I said yesterday? No chance.
Yeah totally! (psst in the meantime, LAGC? Alcon? Here? Hmm? ) Have you met anyone from AL that lives in the US?
You could always made a holiday of it (24 hour road trip). I've seen a bunch of people in the UK on here say about venturing to the events not closest to them (usually because they're closest friends from here are going to those other ones).
Speaking of talking in groups - I actually briefly tried to escape to AL today at lunch when it got to 10 of us sitting in the pub with half of them me not really knowing. Sadly no one was really about to talk to. Doh ^^ (yeah I've still not worked up the courage for Live Chat yet xP). And I have exactly the same problem. I don't like talking over other people - even though they tend to cut me off half the time. So I end up talking less. I'm starting to just grit my teeth though and do the same thing to others if I know already that they do it to me - I figure they're willing to deal with it if they're doing it themselves.
Yay! *hugs coffee maker*
A decent amount would be I guess, 3/4 inches? Enough that you can make a decent snowman with I guess. Haven't had a foot of snow anywhere I've been since I was like 10. xP Though I'm sure some parts of the country (inc. Scotland especially) have had it.
And agreed about the politics bit.
Then you have the people with normal degrees (like me), that are alright but nothing special at interviews. People without degrees or substitute forms of education/experience basically don't get beyond a certain level of job, especially in the city (cue McDonalds).
With the housing, the problem in the city at least (probably elsewhere too) is mainly because so many people have previously gotten the wonderful idea of "I'll just rent out some houses and kick back and relax". It's a good idea, don't get me wrong, but there's now a shortage of buyable housing and so house prices are high. They're starting to implement limitations and taxations on people looking to buy houses to rent, but it's still in quite a damaged state. The best thing I can hope for is, ironically, getting a girlfriend or partner and then buying a place together. xP Obviously I'm not looking solely for that, but it is a legitimate benefit.
I would have been 2/300 over with those last 2. xP
That kind of sounds similar to over here, though annoyingly, half the time companies also judge a lot on personality/confidence. The ones with the best chances of getting a job are firstly the ones that did a sandwich course at Uni, where you have one year between your 2nd and 3rd years of study where you do a work placement somewhere. Because it gives them actual work experience, they can apply to a lot more jobs early on that others can't. The next ones like to get a job are, as I call them, the cocky ones. xP The natural-born speakers that could sell central heating to someone living in Egypt. A lot of people with lesser experience or even degrees can get jobs because they can sell themselves well in interviews. The tester I previously mentioned that might be getting paid more than the one teaching him how to do his job is one such guy.
