@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2018 - 08:40 PM)

I saw him on The Trek BBS some months before he hit the Allspark.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 05:47 PM)

He was considered an annoying pest even back then.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 05:47 PM)

I finally managed to dig up some of Jason Irelan's earliest posts, at the Alvaro Comicboards Transformers forum. Dating back to 2003.

The best thing is that repeatedly buying the same cabinet means an increasing routine in assembling the things.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 August 2018 - 10:39 AM)

Welp, beats me. I got four shelves.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 08:38 AM)

And I just managed to clean out my bed drawers, so I can move on to the next step when I'm ready.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 August 2018 - 03:45 PM)

I doubt I set any records, but now my cat can't jump on my PC and hit the power button or reset button, so... improvement.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Oh, and there's also a few percent extra wage for every overtime hour on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Some people just work an hour extra every day and then request a day off when they have collected enough hours.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Come in on your day off? Work an hour extra on a normal working day? Counts. What you do with your overtime doesn't matter just as long as you worked overtime in the first place.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Anything goes - filing a request for financial compensation for your overtime, getting them compensated by spare time either in full "stay at home" days or "go home early" days (always with permission by your superior), it doesn't matter. What matters is that you worked longer than your contract and your official shift plan require you on any given day.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:16 AM)

Now the important thing here is that overtime is clocked daily, so if you work an hour extra (all overtime prior to the Christmas peak season is voluntary) and then immediately work an hour less on the following day (assuming you got your superior's permission), you may have a net zero on your overtime account but still scored one hour for the premium regardless.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:14 AM)

In other news, I unlocked an achievement at work: There is an agreement between the works council and the employer which states that anyone who works 55 overtime hours this year between January and the end of September gets a premium in October.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:12 AM)

Of course, the idiots keep bringing up the fact that DC used it "first", despite us telling them over and over again that who was "first" is completely irrelevant in trademarks.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:10 AM)

Actually they just settled.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2018 - 05:03 AM)

Sounds like Hasbro should win it easily.. They'be been using it constantly for years, so even if DC did have it, they haven't been using and defending their trademark.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Well, haven't in a long time, that is.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

And there haven't been any toys based on DC's Teen Titans Bumblebee character until recently.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Because Hasbro is selling toys.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

The trademark dispute was specifically about toys.

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:50 AM)

Thought to be fair I didn't even know Hasbro and DC were having a trademark dispute. I thought that was something that would have been settled years ago (and DC wouldn't be doing much with their Bumblebee at the moment given Marvel's using Wasp at the moment)

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:37 AM)

It sounds like the kind of person isn't going to be deflected by petty concerns like "reason" or "facts".

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:18 AM)

I told him repeatedly that the insects are completely irrelevant because THEY ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING TOYS (or ANY business at all, for that matter).

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:08 AM)

Even if he meant that the word "bumblebee" has been used to describe a particular type of insect (which is a much more coherent statement) it's still wrong.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 03:40 AM)

Claiming that Hasbro's trademark has always been for "Autobot Bumblebee" (a quick look at any toy packaging in the past 12 years proves this wrong), Apple the computer company has never held a trademark for "Apple", only for "Apple Computers" (the USPTO database proves this wrong), you cannot trademark common words (the USPTO database proves this wrong), the insects have been using the name "Bumblebee" for thousands of years (insects don't speak English), and ARGHHHH.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 03:38 AM)

Jesus, there's this moron at TFW2005 who has a history of exceptionally outrageous bulls*** claims who is making all sorts of provably false statements in the thread about the Hasbro/DC "Bumblebee" trademark dispute.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 August 2018 - 06:36 AM)

That never goes away. I still have little panic attacks when I see water where it's not supposed to be. I've lived through enough leaking roofs, broken pipes and floods to know it could be a very bad sign.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 August 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Despite my parents explaining that to me when I was a kid, I still half-panic every time I see condensation dripping.

@  Shrug : (15 August 2018 - 08:23 PM)

Yup. If the water happens to be on the left or right of the vehicle, make sure to remember that. That way it's real easy to tell if it's something else dripping.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:15 PM)

So I checked online and it appears... it's totally normal, that's apparently condensed water from the air conditioning.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:14 PM)

Phew!" For a moment I thought I was in real trouble because when I arrived at home and drove my car into the garage, there was a trail of large wet spots.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

The showerhead exploded off the pipe this morning. So yeah... think it's going to be a "great" day.

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

Hard to believe it's come to this: Capcom won't even fund one of its biggest franchises, the one that could be argued as their "mascot" series in lieu of Mega Man, and now it's become another Bayonetta with Sony footing the bill, thus gaining exclusivity.

 

At least, that's been my takeaway from the news surrounding this.

 

Kind of wish Nintendo had gone in with Sony to make it a co-exclusive... be funny if they did, and left MS out in the cold. Not really, but kind of in how silly that would be.

 

Maybe with any luck, they're funding the next Mega Man game instead.

Rumor is some of the reason is due to the PS4 and PC versions are going to be cross compatible but Xbox is holding onto it's only Xbox can play with Xbox mentality.

Man, I am both really interested in this but also put off because I'm already really bad at Street Fighter 3 and don't need another game to be terrible at.
 

Rumor is some of the reason is due to the PS4 and PC versions are going to be cross compatible but Xbox is holding onto it's only Xbox can play with Xbox mentality.

This has happened with some other games in the past, I believe - I think it's why Final Fantasy 14 isn't on Xbox? This here is why I don't think it's a bad move at all to not release an Xbox One version. It's better that they can produce a single strong experience that unites its community across platforms than that they sell more copies. This is a good move that puts the player and the game above the market.

Considering the PS4 consumerbase already is as big as it is, and probably will be even bigger come this christmas, and that the PC is experiencing a resurgence, this might not be the worst decision. 

 

Of course, Sony likely also paid Capcom quite handsomely for the privelige. Maybe we will also see a Vita version later on.

 

Then again, one could argue that this type of title should be on all platforms, the same notion people felt about next Tomb Raider game.

Well the fact that Sony had to pay for a Street Fighter game is already pretty horrible. Capcom must basically be running on fumes, ready for someone to take over when the cash dries up.

Nah, Street Fighter V is PS4 and PC for good.   My bet it is indeed because of the cross-platform play, which Microsoft opposes.

I'm pretty happy with only going to one console. This way any gathering or tournament will only be with on console. I used play SFIV somewhat competitively and the fact that fight sticks were console-dependent was annoying as all hell. If the tourney used PS3 I was fine, but if it was on 360 I'd be out of luck.

This gets around all of that.

Considering Nintendo hasn't had Street Fighter on their consoles in like, forever...except for a crappy portable of SF IV...which I'm not counting because:
1. it never got upgraded past the Super stage
2. they gimped it to put it on portable platform
3. it's on a portable platform
I don't think Nintendo's going to be any more butt-hurt over not having V than they were not having IV and III.

As for XBone...given the crap they pulled with Tomb Raider (something that leaves me double butt-hurt since Lara really made her start on Playstation), and the crap they pulled with Rayman Legends...Microsoft gets no sympathy from me. It actually tickles me a bit that for once they're the ones left out in the cold.

They got their Tomb Raider and Killer Instinct. As far as Street Fighter V goes, they can just go *scrubbed*.
