You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If you are looking to recoup some of the costs, I mean

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:34 PM)

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:49 PM)

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:46 PM)

I'm not sure if anyone here knew James Conan Gouig, but he passed away. Suicide, sadly.

Least it wasn't a weird scratchy noise IN YOUR BRAIN.  Or was it.  Maybe you found it after it crawled out?

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Got replacements, so yeah. Main thing is, if you hear a weird scratchy noise in your headphones it might not be static..

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 October 2017 - 01:28 AM)

Nuke the headphones from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2017 - 09:04 PM)

It's interesting how life gives you a good thing and then a bad thing. Like, just got my tax return and it was quite robust, and then I found an INCH LONG EARWIG IN MY HEADPHONES. AHHHHH-

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2017 - 11:52 AM)

BERNIEEEEEEEE...

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

It scared me!

@  Kalidor : (17 October 2017 - 05:42 PM)

Yes - here is more information - https://www.battleforthenet.com/

@  Darth Gonzo : (17 October 2017 - 05:36 PM)

Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

I dunno if anyone here follows Notch's blog, but he says that he'll release the SMP server stuff tomorrow. I think its still mobless, but its better than none and we should be able to play with each other.

I think you need a rival in minecraft...
Like what if there was a giant tunneling worm on ever big island. It makes new tunnels when it burrows that may collapse after a while. So it makes new areas, and mucks with pre established structures. When you come across one of its tunnels, you have to follow it quickly and hunt down the beast.

I've been playing starcraft a bit, and I kept thinking how cool it would be for an ultralisk to pop out of the ground, and then a nydalus worm. And then tunneling monster to harass you/for you to hunt made sense.
What signature?

Well, there are the zombies, skells, creepers, spiders... with the possibility of more, and Notch has already stated he wants to implement sea monsters.

The creepers and the skeletons kill me more than anything. I'll be minding my onw business, climbing a waterfall on my way out of a cave with plenty of treasured goodies and a damn creeper'll fall down the waterfall and BLAMMO, I'm chili on the ground.

On the multiplayer news: FANTASTIC!!!! Which kind soul will provide the glorious server?

No. Suddenly, I don't want to use my netbook for this.











































Mostly because my brother got a new laptop last night and gave me his old one. And even though the battery is shot on it it's still far more powerful than my wee little roaming back harddrive. So I'm gonna set it all up on that instead.

You don't buy a Porsche *just* for how it looks, after all. It's got to perform, too. Maybe tie you up, if you're into that.

I have to say, there's something primarily satisfying about digging massive tunnel networks.

Okay, this is it. The moment you've ALL been waiting for!

66.36.154.178:5000

Will, hopefully, given a kind and merciful machine spirit, allow you all to connect. Please, don't spread it around too much till we know how well the laptop will fare as server.

EDIT: So, either no one has seen this, or people are trying; failing and giving up. The server will be up all night, and probably tomorrow as well. Please try to connect and let me know if you succeed or not. Also, I learned the following things from my own screwing around.

1.) You will always log in at the same place, BUT you will respawn at the place you died.
2.) There is no point in making anything overly fancy right now. You don't keep anything when you log out, and seemingly all the chests empty themselves as well.
3.) You cannot modify the log in area AT ALL. Even if there's something useful there, its staying there.
4.) Doors do not currently work properly.
5.) Furnaces do not work. Burn all you want, but you get no product, just lost fuel.
6.) Go ahead and change the world all you want: It's permanent.
