@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

Last spring, I purchased a binder a bug ton of clear plastic sheets. My intent was to use them to place the instructions sheets to my transformers. Not only to get them out of the box they were in (which is too small anyway, and falling apart.) but also to make them readily apparent and easier to find should I need them for something. I got part way through the process (currentish to titans return.) the day after I bought the stuff, and realized that most of the instructions were so badly deformed from being tossed in the box, that they needed compression to smooth out. So I halted the project to drop a 25 pound weight on the binder.

 

I then spent every day since looking at it, and lamenting my lack of progress.

 

TODAY, I needed the instruction for abominus so I could finally put it together and onto the shelf. I didn't want him in the first place (no attachment to the character.) but I scored hun-gurr cheap at winners so I went out of my way to at least finish him. In doing that, I wound up adding more instructions to the binder. The rest of the "generations" stuff, and all of my "prime" stuff. Looking at it though, I guess I'm going to need another binder (and more plastic sheets.) for animated and beast wars.

 

Yeah, I managed to keep all the instructions for all my toys going back over 20 years. And It seems like I'm going to manage to get them into at least series chronological order.

 

So, I do feel pretty good about that.

The surgery to have me eyes removed is scheduled for next week!

 

I saw a 500-pound person in a Jessica Rabbit costume at Galaxycon this past weekend. I weighed my options and decided I didn't ever want to see anything again. 

 

I am so excited!

I was at a TRU in kanata yesterday, and they had to the refraktor reconnaissance set. So I bought it. :D

 

Edit: it's apparently turned into a weekend to spend money: This morning I bought a new tablet and then signed up for disney+. I needed the tablet cause my old one wouldn't run the app, and that's how I get all my streaming stuff.

Okay, so, it's like 14C outside right now. I've got my bedroom window up and not "For five minutes to change the air.". What's coming in is as warm as the air in the house: and the heating system isn't on because the thermostat hasn't dropped low enough.

 

In short: it's hugging GORGEOUS outside today. I love it.

Today, it's miserable and alternating between rain and freezing rain.

 

BUT! I got my new tablet about an hour ago, and have been installing and configuring, and it works awesome. Looking forward to finally seeing what's on disney+, and not needing to pull my SD card every 20 minutes or so to make it keeps working.

I got siege starscream today for half off. Walmart was running a liquidation (apparently) and for the price I couldn't pass it up. They were actually liquidating all the sizes they had, except the deluxes for some reason. They had the most of those, so... I dunno, trying to trick people into buying them I guess.

I just finished cleaning the bathroom.

 

Here's the thing: it's under construction. Early on tuesday: the company got the orders to close up shop, so they stopped all current contracts at midnight that night. Now; technically illegal for them to leave us without a bathroom. Yesterday the electrician finished up the wiring and switches and such. Today the plumber was in to finish installing the fixtures. It's still not done, the shower isn't properly installed (it's a glass walled stall... minus the glass right now. We're gonna fetch a shower curtain in the mean time.), the painting and the finishing isn't done. They were about two proper days away from delivery.

 

But at least we can bathe properly again. I'm looking forward to trying out that ludicrously big bath tub.

Alright, so; mom's birthday. I went and did something I have never done before; and cloned the hard drive instead of just installing and starting from scratch.

 

And I gotta say: kinda impressed. The cloned drive even opened the web page I was on when it booted for the first time. Gonna remember that tool for the time something goes sideways.

Alright, story time!

 

For my birthday in 2018, I bought myself an oculus rift system. I love it. The games are fun, the system is responsive, it works well with steam... The whole damn thing saw very little use. It was tethered to my computer which was stuck in my room which did not have enough space to make full use of it. You were trapped somewhere between room scale and sitting, in the land of bruised knuckles.

 

So, two days ago; my friend pops up on steam and asks me some questions about the rift. Turns out he bought himself the quest, and was trying to compare functionality. We had a nice discussion about the systems, and it got me back on my horse. I made sure everything was up to date, and jumped back into it. Robo Recall is mad fun, and I should have made an effort to play it sooner, what with getting it free and all. Course, half way through the second mission, I flat out punch my monitor. No damage done, but it put me right back to where the machine sat idle for almost a year.

 

So... I did some thinking, and some soul searching. Do I actually WANT to upgrade, or am I just bored and frustrated and want to do something out of the ordinary to change things up?

 

Anyway, long story short: I just finished the details to sell the rift, and this morning, I purchased the quest 64 gig. I shouldn't have, but I can afford it, and frankly the portability will make it far more useful and entertaining. We HAVE the space to make use of room scale, just NOT where the computers are.

 

Edit: sold the old one. Did not expect to get this wrapped up in one day.
