@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

Already seen it online.

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

Happy new year! And welcome back!

 

I've actually lost count of how many of these we've done, but we all know the drill at this point. The thread is dedicated towards helping each other achieve weight goals, exercise goals, change our lifestyles and eating habits in favour of healthier ones.

 

Welp, after reviewing the totals from last year, we WANTONLY overshot on the reps, and fell slightly short on miles. So, here's this year community goals:

 

-Miles; 5000

-Uppers: 50,000

-Lowers: 25,00

-Core: 25,000

 

And remember: the point isn't to meet the arbritary numbers assigned by some shmuck on the first of the year. The point is to change ourselves for the better.

 

I was actually going to take a 3.5 mile run on the elliptical this morning: but one of my plague bearer kin gave me a wicked cold. Every time I cough I feel like I'm going to rip out my lung valve assembly.

Nothing to contribute yet but, recording for posterity, it's Jan 3, 2019 and my weight is 154.2 lbs.

(Yes, I gained weight from the New Year's Eve buffet that I haven't lost yet. Darn it!).

With the Allspark Exercise Community as my witness, I will reach 135 lbs before 2020! It is my vision and it will not be in hindsight when eye attain said target then lose it! (and other eyeglasses related puns)

So I haven’t ran since the first half of December. The temps are to cold for me to run first thing in the morning. By the time they are warming up my wife has to get ready for work so I’m on kid duty. On days of work I don’t have time after to go because I gotta get home before my wife leaves for work. Weekends are about it anymore it feels like and I work every other one. With a second kid arriving at the end of this month it’s going to be that much harder. I had 816 miles last year which was about 250 less than 2017. Hopefully I can find the time to get the miles back up.

Still motivated to run a half marathon this year. Just gotta get out and train.

Good luck to everybody and their goals this year. Really impressed with this group and how we have stayed after it from year to year and how we manage to pick up one or 2 new members every year.

Just doing pull ups again. Have to build myself up to being able to do 10 x5 different types so can attempt a one armed pull up again.

First mile swim of the year. It also just felt like an average Friday afternoon at the gym. Maybe the new year resolutionists are felt more during peak hours? (which I am fortunate enough to be able to avoid.)

I didnt get a chance to update on Friday, but my son asked to workout with me. He did so good! He just turned 11, and I told him that if he keeps this up, by 16 hes gonna be ripped!

We did chest that day, and then lower body yesterday. I gave him today off, and I did some cardio with a stretch.

434 days in a row now! I dont have the body I want, but we moved our gym to our front porch (its enclosed with windows all around). I got hot power walking. So I took off my shirt. Take that small village onlookers, haha!

(My wife said its a good thing it was dark outside!)

It's good your kid wants to exercise with you. Get some good information and good habits into him NOW while it's still fairly easy to change his habits.

Today was upper body. Going to have my son walk on the treadmill when he gets home from school (first day back for them finally).

I had an idea last night that Im going to try to do: walk for at least 10 minutes after a strength training workout. I also started tracking a new stat: total move calories burned (a stat my Apple Watch gives me). So far (not counting today, since I cant get the current days totals until the day is over): 4,497.
