Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:24 PM)

But there's also departments to consider, since we have a varieity of types of machines and not everyone is qualified to run everything. Altogether, there are a lot of ways you can get screwed

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:21 PM)

So a few of the same rules, a few different ones. For regular employees, requests need to be in by January 15th. If they are, those are doled out based on seniority. You're only guaranteed 2 weeks in "prime time" (basically June, July, August). Anything submitted after January 15th is given out first come, first served based on availability

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 January 2021 - 02:39 PM)

So who said "Jumanji!"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 January 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I knew a woman at Target who was forced to use up her vacation time before she could qualify for maternity leave. Then they denied the leave because she technically hadn't been at work for two weeks beforehand.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:21 AM)

Also, if you become sick during your vacation and you turn in a doctor's sick note, it means that you don't lose your vacation days, because according to the law, vacation is intended for recreation, not for recovery from sickness or injury.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:00 AM)

Another priority is "vacation request for the next year turned in before the deadline". Like, you missed the deadline, you have to make do with what's left.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 03:59 AM)

No, they prioritize vacation during school holidays for employees with school-age children. Also, only three of the six weeks during the summer holidays per employee so a larger number of employees can get their requests fulfilled.

GTA V just barely manages to run on my laptop's integrated graphics.

 

Feel like if I go into the config files and mess with them, could probably get it to run better since I did nothing to the default graphics settings (defaulted to full-screen 720p for me)

 

Anyway's damn game is nearly 100 hugging gigabytes.

I'm weighing that question a bit, I'm honestly not sure. The Ropalolyst has a lot of ways of killing you, a lot of ways of punishing you for using your abilities, and a bossfight room that will shut you down if you try to do anything that isn't the prescribed steps on the instruction sheet. You need to know the sequence and which buttons not to hit before going in, and you will be periodically cheesed regardless. If you're in a full public squad, it's probably not going to be difficult to get through per se, but it's still ... probably the most annoying boss in the game IMO, in terms of just, like, prevalence of gameplay elements that are themselves annoying. It's mostly in things like the Ropalolyst's ability to instantly shut down all of your abilities for a while if you try to use operator mode to recharge or heal or whatever, and the map denying most or all frames' and the operator's flight abilities to make you walk on the wires, etc. If you step out of the prescribed cycle, you're punished. Singlularly unpleasant boss design.

 

It doesn't heal, though. There's that much. You don't find yourself ten minutes in and back where you started. I can give it that much credit, that that is a frustrating mechanic that it does not employ. And like other boss farms, you're guaranteed part drop each time, so you're really only going to be running it between three and seven or eight times to get the full set, and you're not completely at the mercy of RNGsus like you are for Gauss or Khora. 

 

So like ... it's short I guess? Comparable to farming Saryn at Kela?

Once you get to the boss room, the only real platforming challenge is just jumping out onto those wires and getting across to the generator dealios. I guess there's the brief bit of platforming after the boss to get to the extraction point, but there's naturally no pressure at that point. Aside from getting out to the generators, you're mostly staying on the central platform except when you're flying the Ropalolyst. 

 

In terms of platforming on the way to the boss fight, I think it's pretty much just the usual amount for any of the new Jupiter maps, and although it's been a long time since I've used the operator void dash without the Zenurik and Naramon passives unlocked, I imagine it should help you cheese through at least some of it.

Very small Warframe thing, but something I somehow never noticed that just made Nova a bit more badass: I just noticed in today's sortie that it's possible to pump Antimatter Drop (which absorbs damage and deals it back at the end as an AoE blast) with melee attacks, which consists of dropping it in between swings while walking into a crowd and losing basically none of the damage dealing in the interim and getting the explosion for "free". So that is ... significantly better than taking time shooting at it, and looks to all the world like I'm just periodically exploding. I thought the biggest limitation on the ability was how slowly the sphere moved, but for melee application that's what makes it work. = ]

If it was anyone other than Bethesda who did this, it wouldn't feel like they deliberately sabotaged the game because everyone was praising it.

I'm not saying that people can't remove it, but considering that it needs to be installed to play online, IDK surely it would detect that the software isn't there and refuse to go online.

 

(Granted, no one plays Doom Eternal online lmao)

If they did - cool.

Bigass swords in Warframe are so much more fun than I was expecting. Got Gram Prime and have had a blast smashing everything XD

Of course, I've modded it around speed over raw damage.

Burston Prime is cooking and we'll see how it goes. Not super fond of burst fire rifles, but the Dex Sybaris kind of turned. E around a little bit on it, in that I can actually hit and kill things with it.

Helps of course that Warframe on switch runs so much better than it used to. Also turning off aim assist really helps.

Yeah, I remember not expecting much from heavy blades either, and then really enjoying the Parcesis with the Tempo Royale stance. I should get a Gram Prime sometime, as the Paracesis is just a worse version with spoilers.
