@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:23 PM)

Which, the opposite side of one bathroom wall is the bedroom. The other wall has all my Transformers on the other side. And it was so bad the other day it actually stunk up the laundry room below the bathroom.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:21 PM)

And the smell is leaking through the bathroom. I'm guessing the vents are connected.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Turns out they smoke. A lot. I know this because it's now cold outside and they're closing their windows.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

So, I moved to a duplex this summer. And I noticed my neighbor's kept their windows open all the time.

The best moment of the Emu War is when they brought machine guns to shoot at large groups of birds and at no point a single person in the room brought up "wait but emus are fast won't they just dodge and-"

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 04:53 AM)

Yeah yeah, giant spiders. Look up the Great Emu War of the 1920s for instances of Australia trying to defeat it's wildlife and failing miserably.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 November 2017 - 03:41 AM)

Australia is still fighting their war on Giant Spiders.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 01:58 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

Good thing the things I'm looking forward to are a ways off. D-Arts hasn't even started yet, and it's obvious that Beelzemon there is an unfinished figure, so I'm fine on that front. Seravee 3G shouldn't be coming out anytime soon, either. And they're certainly not going to spring a Chogokin release on us without warning, so I'm fine on Escaflowne.


Which is good, because I'm tapped out for the next little bit, just having paid for a Koenig Monster and a PlayArts Odin, as well as a healthy complement of smaller items.


[edit] Knew that release date was a little bit quick, since they usually give retailers enough time to solicit pre-orders and whatnot. Pre-orders for Kazuma are up already, but according to Amiami, he's not out until January.

Why does HLJ say "October Release", then?

HLJ pre-orders are tricky. Let's say they have a Gundam kit which is due in for September. All their info beforehand will tell customers that's when they'll have it. However, should no stock emerge by the end of the month it'll be listed for October. If no stock continues to arrive, the month will just keep going and going and going...seriously, I've seen them do it for things like trading figures where they never get a certain set in but somehow manage to get the one before and after just fine. I've even got some Gunpla on order from them all due this month, yet they list some of them as far as December.
There's also the fact that HLJ effectively declared war on Amiami this week, saying they're doing away with Japanese retail price in favour of more competitive discounted prices for all items. Since they seem to be taking their competition more seriously, I'd say all the evidence is good enough to at least suspect they rushed all these new items up for pre-order with no real release date info simply not to lose customers.

Meanwhile, I think waiting until January for stuff that was hinted at 8 months ago is insane. Bandai works in mysterious ways, plus these figures are fully colored and appear to be ready for production, which is not something Bandai usually has 4 months in advance.

I think that someone goofed and these items ARE being released in October.

Bandai can and will announce stuff that is ready, only to sit on it. Perfect examples- the missile container version of HG Kyrios and the Sangokuden Real Grade kits. The fact that a thing looks ready to go doesn't mean it will. I can't claim to have a definitive answer here, but I will be amazed if they dump all this out in one month after showing it an expo.

It's not EVERYTHING, though.

3 Damashii and 3 Figuarts in one month isn't outlandish for Bandai.

Nobody's saying every single thing shown at Tamashii Nation is coming out next month...

And what the hell are you talking about, anyway? Neither one of those things exist!

HG Kyrios has been shown a ton of times. There are even unused polycap ports in the existing kits legs which were designed to accomodate it. Likewise, about a year ago Bandai announced kits of Zeta and Double Zeta styles as Chouhi and Kanu were under planning.
Both examples were ultimately abandoned, despite a great deal of work having been put into them (Kyrios in particular would have been very easy, all they need was to mass produce the missile container component).

-Shinegreymon
-Mugendramon

Rockman Series:

I think the list is perfect in the sense of being fairly predictable. All the lead characters' final forms and a few other big ones. While there's some I like, most of my favs aren't listed/shown outside of Beelzemon. Of course, they could always make others along side these so nothing's set in stone. Personally, I'm hoping for Leomon at some point.

Kaiyodo has been after me all year starting with the Revoltech transformable Macross jets. I skipped to wait for the sure to happen Max colors. Then they made Trigun, which were a must. Then they killed themselves with those tiny overpriced Zoids. And somewhere along the way, I preordered Lupin III. Now Bandai's is after me. I'm already deciding who I want the most so I can get who I really want. Wargreymon might be the first to go so I can get Kazuma, but that's a tough choice.

That's pretty well exactly what BBTS does. Allspark Almanac 2 was August. Now it still says September, but I expect it to move to October soon. This gets really annoying when you have a pile of loot and keep wating for that final item. Especially since their inventory system occasionally is crap and you find out at shipping time that they didn't really hold something for you. That's fun when it's now too late to order something anywhere else except jacked up on ebay.
