@  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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

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

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

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!

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

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

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

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

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (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.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

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

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

Just saying I'm 149.6lbs so just gotta lose 3lbs to get back to what I was earlier this week.

Also, there's intermittent fasting timing apps! I should try it.

One arm push ups! Nice! With baby!
I could do like... three a few years ago, haha

Baby? More like almost 8 year old! But the one handed ones were without her, it was regular pushups where I added her weight.

 

As far as weight is concerned, just wanted to encourage you. I hit a new low of 213.65 earlier this week, but added 2 pounds between Thursday and Friday's dinners (my in laws gave us some money so we could have a night out, and I enjoyed every bite of it!). I understand exactly what you feel, since I'm now 2 more pounds further from my 185 goal weight, but I think fluctuations of 2-3 pounds in a given week are healthy. I get it though...once I'm at 185, I'll freak out the first time I hit 190 again.

 

Yesterday, was core. Today, during a trip to Aldi I ran across a 12 pound vest for only $8.99. I wore it while doing an indoor run tonight. Believe it or not, I hit a new pace for the new year: 9:30 per mile. It was challenging, and I expect to be up tomorrow with water retention even more (since my muscles will be in repair overdrive now), but it was worth it. Hoping this makes me faster.

 

Miles: 136.44 + 2.2 = 138.64
Uppers: 8319
Lowers: 3390
Core: 2497 + 260 = 2757

Oh yeah, she did ask you what happens if she got on your back, hehe.

I was lying in bed last night, being tempted to get up and eat a chocolate wafer crunch bar but fell asleep instead. It was too cold to leave the comfy bed, haha

Today, I hit a new weight low since at least 2010, maybe 2009. 212.53! I was so positive I would be up today, since my wife made an amazing potato soup last night and I went back twice for another serving. So I was super surprised to be down, I even checked it again just to be sure.

 

Today, I did a full body workout. Low reps, since I walked/stretched a lot in between. But something different. I wore the 12 pound weight vest the entire time, and I could tell it midway through too.

 

Miles: 54.79
Uppers: 9044 + 20 = 9064
Lowers: 3984 + 21 = 4005
Core: 2820 + 11 = 2841

 

I also did 5 burpees. I don't know where to put them, since they work the entire body in 1 rep. Thoughts?

Burpees have push up for 'upper' and squats for 'lower'. Does it do 'core'? Cuz, I swear, I will do burpees to add to our list if core is included.

"Getting up in the morning" is getting to be workout enough. 

 

I don't know what it is, but since last summer something's been causing the family cat to just freak out at night when everyone's trying to sleep. About the only thing that'll settle him down is if I get him and hold him like an infant while I'm seated. I can be doing this for as much as four hours straight, and that stresses my spine. 

 

I've found that if I sit in the padded chair in the family office after I wake up and recline it a bit, it helps my back significantly. Problem is, that same cat takes the sound of me sitting in the chair as some sort of invitation to play. He wants me to get up and play with him, with "play" being "chase him around the house. 

 

If I don't chase him, he'll rip something up in protest. The relatives I live with spoiled him to the extent that he's used to getting what he wants, and he gets destructive when that doesn't happen. 

 

The up and down as I get up to try and stop him from destroying things, sit back down, and then have to get up again is stressing things that much more. After about half an hour of this, I'm in enough pain that I have trouble walking. 

 

This usually ends with me having to spend the next hour in that chair dealing with things unless I want some Advil.

I reached 143.8lbs! Just 4 more lbs and I'll be at my goal! Then I'll start eating tuna for my protein and try to build muscle. Maybe pics when I'm at 140lbs.

The diet was just really me living alone and controlling my food. Yeeeeah, kinda not eating full meals sometimes.

I know it's bad, yikes. But I'll regulate once I'm at my target weight of 140lbs.

Between the cold my nephew gave me, and the weather spiking above zero © to cause thaws, I've been alternating between down and badly over exerting myself. There's been awful ice this year, and three times in the last two weeks I've had to go clear the shit out which is god awful back breaking work. Two hours of it on friday wound up not only making my back feel like it was broken, but managed to give me a migraine on top of it.

 

But still: felt well enough to take my run today. So, back into the swing of things!
