@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 06:26 PM)

guessing "Hunchback" just got bumped WAY down the list for Disney's live-action remakes...

@  Patch : (15 April 2019 - 05:56 PM)

We all pronounce it wrong, so no one knows enough to care.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It'd be odd for most Americans not to know how to pronounce Notre Dame, considering they have a University with the same name that's the subject of a relatively popular film based around a sport most Americans love

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Three or four more hours will be needed to contain the fire.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Update from France 24: the Paris Fire Brigade says two towers and the main structure of the cathedral have been saved from complete destruction.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:57 PM)

One does not have to speak French to know that rhyming with "voter name" is off the mark.

@  Locoman : (15 April 2019 - 03:51 PM)

Really? It's an international tragedy and you're zeroing in on the people who maybe don't speak French?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:44 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw I just read on BBC News that the cause is not yet clear, but officials suspect the fire could be linked to renovation work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Oh boy, here we go with the U.S.-American newscasters who can't pronounce "Notre Dame" correctly.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 April 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Too soon to say.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 April 2019 - 03:20 PM)

Do we know if it was an attack? Arson? Or just bad wiring?

@  Nevermore : (15 April 2019 - 02:10 PM)

Religion is dead?

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 02:01 PM)

major cathedral burning down on Holy Week is some kind of metaphor.

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Hard to believe a wonder of the world could just be wiped out so easily. Hopefully they can still save it

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Well, Notre Dame is burning down

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 10:05 AM)

yikes I thought the site was going to be down for a while

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:07 PM)

So, time for another strike. No sleep for me tonight. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:04 PM)

Think Game of Thrones "light" meets Cabaret and you get the idea.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:03 PM)

Kinda sorta, just with more intrigue, conspiracy, depravity, crime and violence.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 April 2019 - 06:37 PM)

So it's like a prequel to Cabaret?

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 04:02 PM)

And man, characters are smoking literally EVERYWHERE.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:27 PM)

Also, full frontal male nudity. (There's been quite a bit of female nudity since episode 1.)

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Episode 6, and Hitler is randomly name-checked.

Congrats and condolences where appropriate.  All of my Premium pulls have been dupes, as was my 3-Star.  The 3-Star did come with a Silver Ray Booster, though... pity the only 3-Star healer I have is a Reflector equipped with a Silver version of his G1 core already. ;) Someday, though, it'll be nice.  4-Star Crystal also already redeemed for a Cutthroat, and it justified keeping the Lab open.

 

Cutthroat was disappointing in that he wasn't a needed combiner component (at least, he isn't a combiner component yet...) and that he didn't impress a lot of my senior peers in our Alliance but during his launch Event I walked away with the 2-Star and 3-Star versions of him and they have impressed me.  At first they didn't, but besides getting them leveled-up the explanation of his Ability was... confusing.  Once I realized I need to either "bomb" where my guys were or were about to be, then he came in pretty handy.

 

I mean, preventing damage is usually better than healing in most games.

 

Note: Edited because I re-read it and was worried some of it was unclear.

To quote the famous words, "Any new four star, is a good one!".

 

My next two premiums were also two star dupes. Should get a three star soon though.

Yeah, I'm nearing a three star, but only premium dupes so far.

I'm going to need my alliance to basically finish the event before I get the four star.

with a new 4 Star Windblade and 4 Star Laser Optimus Prime, I have enough 4 stars to fill out a second team. It'll take a long while before they become stronger than all my top 3-Stars but whatever. Just reached level 64 so no idea how long it will take but then the HQ gets upgraded and then the ship and it's a new game.

Most bases I attack have 5 build bots and I have 2. Is that because they're all buying them or was it just my bad spending gold coins early on?
Woooo!

The latter.  Even with spending a Cybercoin on a Bombshell Crystal early on (which had a Straxus) and one or two times speeding up timers (only to later realize I had plenty of time and should have waited), I've got four Build Bots, and have had them long enough I don't remember my exact HQ or player Level when it happened. To hazard a guess, I think I got Build Bot 4 around HQ Level 12.  Anyway, I think I have a slightly higher Player Level than you, about the same amount of 4-Stars, and I'm at HQ 15 with... maybe a quarter of my Walls maxed out and a third of my buildings?  Sorry, all of this is off the top of my head as I'm about to leave the house. ^^'

Sigh. My alliance slacked off today and now there's basically no chance of me getting a four star this weekend. I'm currently ranked 5 when normally I'm 12 or 13 out of the alliance. So frustrating that we can straight up get a four star in one weekend and everyone else is busy with real life and/or waiting for everyone else to do the work.

I'm guessing a lot were already halfway to a four star crystal when the event started and that's why there was a big drop of activity. I had like 30 crystal shards and needed us to max out the event.

Interesting.  I don't think Nightbird fared as well on the Decepticon side of things.  Arcee doesn't just share a head/color-swapped character model with her, but also Ability, right?  The hologram?

 

Though that Ability can be great if you have the skill/luck to make sure it not only triggers a Guard Outpost early but that it sends them charging off into the wrong direction and/or endures enough damage to more or less waste the guard's Ability.  Oh, and I do love Nightbird with Brake-Neck to back her up; he's the 'con with the Execute! Ability, so the hologram sets up guards to get snipped.

Hey, with combiners does the level of my component limbs reflect in the combined form at all or just how much combiner spark I've pumped into him?

With Combiners, the only thing that matters is what level the combiner is, and whether or not you have all the components as three or four star versions. Leveling up the individual component bots won't make the combiner any stronger or weaker.
