Back in St. Olaf they used to have IKEA building contests...

@  Paladin : (18 August 2018 - 11:44 AM)

enjoy yur affordable Svedish crap.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 August 2018 - 11:33 AM)

Ikea is dangerous. I bought a new desk and a bed frame...

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 August 2018 - 11:19 AM)

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Oh, and there's also a few percent extra wage for every overtime hour on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Some people just work an hour extra every day and then request a day off when they have collected enough hours.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Come in on your day off? Work an hour extra on a normal working day? Counts. What you do with your overtime doesn't matter just as long as you worked overtime in the first place.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Anything goes - filing a request for financial compensation for your overtime, getting them compensated by spare time either in full "stay at home" days or "go home early" days (always with permission by your superior), it doesn't matter. What matters is that you worked longer than your contract and your official shift plan require you on any given day.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:16 AM)

Now the important thing here is that overtime is clocked daily, so if you work an hour extra (all overtime prior to the Christmas peak season is voluntary) and then immediately work an hour less on the following day (assuming you got your superior's permission), you may have a net zero on your overtime account but still scored one hour for the premium regardless.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:14 AM)

In other news, I unlocked an achievement at work: There is an agreement between the works council and the employer which states that anyone who works 55 overtime hours this year between January and the end of September gets a premium in October.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:12 AM)

Of course, the idiots keep bringing up the fact that DC used it "first", despite us telling them over and over again that who was "first" is completely irrelevant in trademarks.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:10 AM)

Actually they just settled.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2018 - 05:03 AM)

Sounds like Hasbro should win it easily.. They'be been using it constantly for years, so even if DC did have it, they haven't been using and defending their trademark.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Well, haven't in a long time, that is.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

And there haven't been any toys based on DC's Teen Titans Bumblebee character until recently.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Because Hasbro is selling toys.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

The trademark dispute was specifically about toys.

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:50 AM)

Thought to be fair I didn't even know Hasbro and DC were having a trademark dispute. I thought that was something that would have been settled years ago (and DC wouldn't be doing much with their Bumblebee at the moment given Marvel's using Wasp at the moment)

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:37 AM)

It sounds like the kind of person isn't going to be deflected by petty concerns like "reason" or "facts".

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:18 AM)

I told him repeatedly that the insects are completely irrelevant because THEY ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING TOYS (or ANY business at all, for that matter).

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:08 AM)

Even if he meant that the word "bumblebee" has been used to describe a particular type of insect (which is a much more coherent statement) it's still wrong.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 03:40 AM)

Claiming that Hasbro's trademark has always been for "Autobot Bumblebee" (a quick look at any toy packaging in the past 12 years proves this wrong), Apple the computer company has never held a trademark for "Apple", only for "Apple Computers" (the USPTO database proves this wrong), you cannot trademark common words (the USPTO database proves this wrong), the insects have been using the name "Bumblebee" for thousands of years (insects don't speak English), and ARGHHHH.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 03:38 AM)

Jesus, there's this moron at TFW2005 who has a history of exceptionally outrageous bulls*** claims who is making all sorts of provably false statements in the thread about the Hasbro/DC "Bumblebee" trademark dispute.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 August 2018 - 06:36 AM)

That never goes away. I still have little panic attacks when I see water where it's not supposed to be. I've lived through enough leaking roofs, broken pipes and floods to know it could be a very bad sign.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 August 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Despite my parents explaining that to me when I was a kid, I still half-panic every time I see condensation dripping.

@  Shrug : (15 August 2018 - 08:23 PM)

Yup. If the water happens to be on the left or right of the vehicle, make sure to remember that. That way it's real easy to tell if it's something else dripping.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:15 PM)

So I checked online and it appears... it's totally normal, that's apparently condensed water from the air conditioning.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:14 PM)

Phew!" For a moment I thought I was in real trouble because when I arrived at home and drove my car into the garage, there was a trail of large wet spots.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

The showerhead exploded off the pipe this morning. So yeah... think it's going to be a "great" day.

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

I knew that my father was getting old when he finally posted a facebook status that was clearly a search term.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:03 PM)

So when he tried to pry into his daughter's love life, he ended up posting numerous search terms relating to "hot boy".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:02 PM)

I once saw this comedy episode wherein a dad mistakenly thought the status bar on Facebook was the search bar.

I like how that game had all kinds of transformation attacks. Some of them may not have made much sense, but they looked cool.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2018 - 11:33 AM)

Menasor kinda did that in the Devastation video game. He'd split into the Stunticons and run you over.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 August 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Megatron screams "decepticons attack", the constructicons form devastator, who then screams "Multi-vector assault mode" and breaks back into invdividual bots to attack seperately.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Imagine: an armada battle between Omega Supreme and Tidal Wave.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Some TF creator should apply it to multi-component Transformers.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:19 PM)

"Multi-vector assault mode" is such a cool term from Star Trek: Voyager.

Not sure if there is a thread bout the Blue Bomber.

I asked this on a differnt forum and most of my replies were Battle Network or Star Force. While I don't mind Star Force or Battle Network, I been a fan of the Classic series and X.

Classic series is what I grew up on and X was pretty great in the ol' SNES days. My personal favourites for Classic was Megaman 2, 3 and 5.

I enjoy the classic, X and Legends series. Beyond that... nope. These new Advance and DS series they've been making lately don't appeal to me at all. Megaman in name only they are.

Silly Robotmasters and epic music.

BN was okay, but it's not a personal favourite of mine. That and Star force. I never cared for ZX, either.

I've only played the first Battle Network and Megaman Zero games and just couldn't be bothered with them. I have no interest in playing their sequels or even remotely curious to do so.

I like the Battle Network and Starforce games for various reasons.. One thing I especially like about them, is you can get -any- enemies attack.

Some of you may know that MegaMan is like my favorite videogame series out there/of all time.

I have a nice little collection of games/stuff. (Which reminds me. I finally found my MegaMan Legends Christmas Card. Need to take a pic of that.)

I started with classic, and followed the series through it's many incarnations.

My favorite is the X series. The inclusion of the wall jump and capsules just made MegaMan THAT much cooler. To this day no other incarnation has made me squeel with joy then the X games do.

In fact my favorite MegaMan game of all time is MegaMan X2.

Series wise, my second favorite is Classic. Third would be the Legends Series.

I still haven't gotten to play much of the Zero series.

The ZX series has the means to become my second favorite series. While I only thought the orginal ZX was 'neat' I was blown away by ZX: Advent! It quickly became my second favorite MegaMan game. The ability to actually BECOME the bosses is just flat out FUN!

As for the Battle Network series... Eh... It's okay, but not really my thing. So I've not even tried the Star Force games yet. (Though the anime rocks)

It's a secret to everybody

Hug Classic.

X is the way to be.

ZX is pretty good too. ZX Advent is AWESOME and has a kickass soundtrack.

Bullet Drive (the theme for your trip through Legion) is my fave track.

More of a classic fan myself and a fan of Megaman X up to X5 when the series took a sharp nosedive in quality.

I really did enjoy Megaman Legends and kinda wish they would revisit the franchise.

The Battle Network games are okay for what they are but they come off as somewhat rushed and poorly designed, never played Starforce so I can't comment.

The Zero and ZX games consistently fail to recapture what made the original franchise fun and I've more or less given up on them entirely.

I'd love to see a Megaman 10 in MM7 style graphics. This has long since been my preferred "look" for the classic series and I've been sorely disappointed that my opinion doesn't seem widely shared.

Also, MM7 had awesome music (Right behind MM2 and 3 of course ^__^ )

I'm a "lite" fan of the series, although if asked, my favorite would be the X series. Mostly art, but story was the main factor - watching two of my cousins play X4 on Zero's story will do that - although I flail at playing any of them. icon-fire.gif Zero series, I kind of like as a close second, also mostly for story and art. icon-hotrod.gif
