    Dec 13, 2017 8:41 AM - Reechard: Did we level up last night?
    Dec 13, 2017 8:41 AM - Reechard: We killed like 30 guys.
    Dec 13, 2017 9:36 AM - theLumberJack: mother of god
    Dec 13, 2017 10:11 AM - Reechard: YEAH LJ.
    Dec 13, 2017 10:16 AM - theLumberJack: I literally fell asleep in my driving class last night
    Dec 13, 2017 10:24 AM - theLumberJack: Good thing it was not the driving portion
    Dec 13, 2017 10:25 AM - Reechard: don't do that
    Dec 13, 2017 12:50 PM - Statboy: you guys are at 7875, you need 9000 to hit level 4
    Dec 13, 2017 1:57 PM - Reechard: Are we playing next week? If we are, I'll probably be a half hour late. It's the school christmas concert for band at 7:00
    Dec 13, 2017 2:01 PM - Statboy: I am able to play on the 19th, but not the 26th, I'll be back in Missouri at my parents for Christmas
    Dec 13, 2017 2:09 PM - VaultBot: im just a half orc who just learned how to read and write
    Dec 13, 2017 2:09 PM - Statboy: If you hit an encounter that early, we'll have you swing the sword at all the enemies
    Dec 13, 2017 6:50 PM - Reechard: yeah the 26th is RIGHT OUT.
    Dec 13, 2017 6:51 PM - Reechard: Jan2 is fine for me though.

    Dec 14, 2017 at 6:21 AM - TimeCrush: This is cute, LJ and Vint get to exchange 'secret' gifts
    Dec 14, 2017 at 6:33 AM - VintagePC: I was actually kinda surprised by the lack of interest this year
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:38 AM - Statboy: Doesn't it take over 10 years of maple syrup to go bad?
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:40 AM - Reechard: yeah, it has to crystalize until the sugar level in the solution drops to the point where it's no longer an antiseptic level.
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:40 AM - Reechard: it can do it in fewer than 10 years though, if it ends up with a seed crystal of sugar in the container.
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:42 AM - Statboy: just recieved a call from Tim Horton himself, for knowing about maple syrup he has given you Vint's Candadian Card
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:43 AM - VaultBot: gonna roll for lava to get my new hard drive, because minecraft.net is apparently down.
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:43 AM - Statboy: [​IMG]
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:44 AM - Statboy: :)
    Dec 14, 2017 at 10:03 AM - Reechard: My family emigrated to the US by way of canada.
    Dec 14, 2017 at 10:03 AM - Reechard: and settled in upstate NY
    Dec 14, 2017 at 10:03 AM - VaultBot: can't trust lava no more
    Dec 14, 2017 at 10:03 AM - Reechard: and still make maple syrup every year...
    Dec 14, 2017 at 10:15 AM - Statboy: so you could out canadian most canadians on the topic of maple syrup
    Dec 14, 2017 at 11:32 AM - Reechard: I've spent a few spring breaks making the stuff.
    Dec 14, 2017 at 11:33 AM - Reechard: I know what jack wax is, which is a pretty canadian thing.
    Dec 14, 2017 at 11:49 AM - Statboy: dang it, how do i stop it from making smilies at me
    Dec 14, 2017 at 11:51 AM - Statboy: nvm
    Dec 14, 2017 at 4:41 PM - TimeCrush: So I can like, find sfx, upload them to that website, and you add them with an associated name?
    Dec 14, 2017 at 4:50 PM - VintagePC: CoH2 free in humble store
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:45 PM - Hexalan: same reechard
    Dec 14, 2017 at 9:45 PM - Hexalan: my mom emigrated to canada first because it was easier to get in than the US

    Dec 18, 2017 at 5:20 PM - VintagePC: layers of fear free in the humble store
    Dec 18, 2017 at 5:25 PM - Hexalan: gib one (1) adminship pls
    Dec 18, 2017 at 5:26 PM - Hexalan: on an unrelated note, does anyone have a recommendation for a first gun?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 5:49 PM - Reechard: that's not a one-size-fits-all question.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 5:50 PM - Reechard: what's the intended usage, what are your state laws, pistol or rifle or shotgun, defense or pleasure or hunting or mix?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 6:47 PM - Hexalan: plinking, indiana (you'd know better than me), pistol or rifle, pleasure
    Dec 18, 2017 at 6:57 PM - Hexalan: my dad's taken up target shooting with an air rifle and i've been implying that he should try an actual firearm, and now he's looking at them. it seems he's concerned with cost of ammunition and convenience of carrying it (carry in the literal sense of how convenient is it to pick up and shoot at a range, not O/C carry)
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:37 PM - theLumberJack: plinking?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:38 PM - VintagePC: I presume that's taking potshots at stuff
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:40 PM - VintagePC: I'd assume the answer to the last part is that the best gun to shoot is the one that feels most comfortable while using it, so you'd probably have to go and try some out...
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:41 PM - VintagePC: ... yes, I realize the irony of vintage giving advice on guns, I'll shut up now.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:43 PM - theLumberJack: yeah penguins cant shoot things
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:50 PM - VintagePC: To my credit I have done some air rifle and BB pistol shooting
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:51 PM - theLumberJack: i go to a range with my brother whenever i visit him
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:51 PM - theLumberJack: but thats not very often
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:52 PM - VintagePC: obligatory HOLY SHIT YOU HAVE A BROTHER :p
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:52 PM - Hexalan: on another entirely note that vint is probably more knowledgeable on: dualbooting linux on a vm?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:53 PM - VintagePC: yyyeeesssssss?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:53 PM - VaultBot: ^ that too vintage
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:53 PM - theLumberJack: i have two brothers and sister, i am the youngest
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:54 PM - Hexalan: i've got win7 installed on a vm, and now i'm trying to boot off a mint iso, but it's getting stuck on the loading screen
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:55 PM - VintagePC: as in it starts trying to boot and hangs, or you don't even get to the CD menu?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:59 PM - Hexalan: [​IMG]
    Dec 18, 2017 at 7:59 PM - VintagePC: It's probably gotten better in the last few years but last I tried Win7 and linux were really bitchy about booting from UEFI/GPT partitions
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:00 PM - Hexalan: i give up
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:00 PM - Hexalan: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uzjkirplcuc4t26/Screenshot 2017-12-18 20.58.33.png?dl=0
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:00 PM - VintagePC: ah
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:00 PM - Hexalan: hang on something weir dhappened
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:00 PM - VintagePC: so you push enter on that and then nothing?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:01 PM - VaultBot: are you a pleasure model?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:01 PM - Hexalan: ok so before right now, i could select "Start Linux Mint" and it goes into a loading menu
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:02 PM - Hexalan: which would just show "Mint 18.3 [4 dots that occasionally changed from black to green]"
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:02 PM - VintagePC: Usually there if you push esc it'll show more detailed loading progress
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:03 PM - VintagePC: or if you push tab for advanced options and either edit the splash=??? thing to read splash=0 (or add it if not present)
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:06 PM - Hexalan: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tak37khy8tp24gv/Screenshot 2017-12-18 21.03.57.png?dl=0
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:08 PM - Hexalan: esc and tab have failed to achieve progress
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:08 PM - VintagePC: well, you'd push tab on the menu, not on the ...
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:09 PM - Hexalan: ok, i've got "splash --", i'm not sure if that's good or bad
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:10 PM - VintagePC: delete the splash part
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:10 PM - VintagePC: then push enter or whatever it tells you to push to boot
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:10 PM - Hexalan: is that including the --
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:11 PM - VintagePC: try leaving the --. if you get an error, remove it too
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:17 PM - Hexalan: splash removed:
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:18 PM - Hexalan: "Generating Locales. Generation complete." and then the blinking terminal underscore
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:18 PM - Hexalan: full of sound and fury, signifying nothing
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:20 PM - VintagePC: Is there more above on screen or just that?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:22 PM - Hexalan: it used to be just blinking terminal underscore, but eventually "generating..." and "generation..." appeared and now the blinking terminal underscore is two lines lower
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:23 PM - Hexalan: but yes, that's all there is
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:24 PM - VintagePC: hm... can't say I really have any advice... sounds like hardware/driver incompatibility with vm
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:25 PM - VintagePC: can you get it to start if you make a new vm and configure it only for linux? (i.e. set linux as the OS, etc)
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:27 PM - Hexalan: yeah i got that working yesterday
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:27 PM - Hexalan: booted off the image and installed properly
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:28 PM - VaultBot: need to go looking for info on that last response
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:28 PM - VintagePC: Definitely sounds like a conflict then
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:28 PM - VintagePC: compare the VM settings and see what differs
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:29 PM - VintagePC: if that fails I'd suspect win7 is setup for GPT partitioning and mint doesn't like it
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:30 PM - VintagePC: or the VM is set to use UEFI
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:43 PM - Reechard: Ruger 10/22, Marlin 795, Remington 597, Henry H001, Henry H003, uhhh
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:43 PM - Reechard: all of those are .22 multi-shot rifles
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:43 PM - Reechard: The Ruger 10/22 is like... "THE" .22 rifle. The Marlin and Remington coming in behind it.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:44 PM - Reechard: but that's the one you'll find in every shop, with buckets and buckets of accessories available.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:45 PM - Reechard: If he wants a pistol, a Walther P22 or a Ruger Mark II or Mark III are great.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:45 PM - Reechard: also .22 plinkers.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:45 PM - Reechard: If he wants a shotgun you can't go wrong with a Remington 870 or a Mossberg 500.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:46 PM - Reechard: If he wants an actual rifle, Remington and Savage both make good 3-4rd bolt-action hunting rifles, in .30-06 or .308.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:46 PM - Reechard: or a Marlin 336C in .30-30
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:47 PM - Reechard: and for home defense or "real" pistols, a Glock 9mm, Beretta 92FS 9mm, or "whatever feels good in your hand at the gun store"
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:47 PM - Reechard: I will forego my usual 1911 pistol in .45 recommendation because you are smol people.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:48 PM - Reechard: at least I assume your dad is smol. I know you are.
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:51 PM - Hexalan: u 'aving a laff at me size, there, ricky boy?
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:55 PM - Hexalan: but yes, thank you
    Dec 18, 2017 at 8:57 PM - Hexalan: also, @vint, am reinstalling windows on another vm with different settings, going to see how that goes
    Dec 18, 2017 at 9:00 PM - VintagePC: mk
    Dec 18, 2017 at 9:07 PM - Hexalan: btw, reechard, you know any good ranges in the area?

    Dec 18, 2017 10:27 PM - Reechard: I don't... I don't go shooting much, normally just take a couple guns and some ammo to my parents' when I go visit.
    Dec 18, 2017 10:27 PM - Reechard: but that's a 300mile drive to shoot...
    Dec 18, 2017 10:28 PM - Reechard: looks like there's one in Westville...
    Dec 18, 2017 10:28 PM - Reechard: West*FIELD*
    Dec 19, 2017 12:41 PM - Statboy: Reechard did you ever take that one level of Gunslinger, or was that Drunk Reechard?
    Dec 19, 2017 1:21 PM - TimeCrush: I'm ready to roll for some fuckin' initiative boys!
    Dec 19, 2017 1:22 PM - TimeCrush: Did we level up?
    Dec 19, 2017 2:20 PM - Statboy: not yet
    Dec 19, 2017 3:31 PM - Reechard: that was Drunk Reechard
    Dec 19, 2017 3:31 PM - Reechard: I'm not multiclassing, at least not *yet*
    Dec 19, 2017 3:31 PM - Reechard: [​IMG]
    Dec 19, 2017 3:31 PM - Reechard: I'm going to be late tonight, but will be rolling up as soon as I can.
    Dec 19, 2017 3:47 PM - VintagePC: can confirm, TIS-100 is exactly that for hours
    Dec 19, 2017 6:19 PM - VaultBot: it's pretty nice.
    Dec 19, 2017 6:19 PM - theLumberJack: Imagine doing an interview for zachtronics
    Dec 19, 2017 6:22 PM - VintagePC: it's just one guy
    Dec 19, 2017 6:22 PM - VintagePC: Zach Barth
    Dec 19, 2017 6:23 PM - VintagePC: but he'd probably plonk you down infront of spacechem and go "have at" :p
    Dec 19, 2017 6:27 PM - theLumberJack: i know
    Dec 19, 2017 6:28 PM - theLumberJack: it would be crazy
    Dec 19, 2017 6:57 PM - Hexalan: guess who didn't fail any classes this semester
    Dec 19, 2017 7:01 PM - theLumberJack: WOO

    Dec 20, 2017 12:10 AM - VaultBot: holy shit, learned a new memory card format
    Dec 20, 2017 12:10 AM - Hexalan: the south rises again, and step 1 of the secession is surgically invade randomass parts of the northeast
    Dec 20, 2017 12:11 AM - Hexalan: and a kentuckian insurgent is getting interrogated and he says
    Dec 20, 2017 12:11 AM - Hexalan: "there weren't supposed to be so many guns."
    Dec 20, 2017 12:12 AM - Hexalan: as if he was not also from america and didn't know that americans like guns
    Dec 20, 2017 12:12 AM - Hexalan: i laughed so hard i choked
    Dec 20, 2017 6:40 AM - VintagePC: I just imagined that in a southern hurr-durr yokel voice
    Dec 20, 2017 10:40 AM - Statboy: Vint, you have a character sheet for your animal companion, if you want me to find it a token just let me know what it is
    Dec 20, 2017 12:27 PM - VaultBot: everyone is at 7320xp if you want me some damn good risk carrying pvp.
    Dec 20, 2017 12:27 PM - Statboy: Also remember your boon companion feat, it makes your companion lvl 4 to start
    Dec 20, 2017 1:21 PM - Statboy: Ultimate Wilderness did add a few options for you as well.
    Dec 20, 2017 5:10 PM - TimeCrush: Gotta admit, your turn around time for that kinda thing is still impressive seeing as how little of /that/ we get in here nowadays
    Dec 20, 2017 5:22 PM - VintagePC: <-- damn lurker
    Dec 20, 2017 5:23 PM - VintagePC: but it also got posted about 5 minutes before I got home from work and sat down to check in
    Dec 20, 2017 7:49 PM - Reechard: Yeah I check in 2-3 times a day for technical stuff too, ever since we started having issues with the web server.
    Dec 20, 2017 9:22 PM - VintagePC: yeah. I noticed it still kinda gets sluggish every once in a while. Blargh

    Dec 21, 2017 1:32 PM - Reechard: Steam Winter Sale
    Dec 21, 2017 1:32 PM - Reechard: nothing good again.
    Dec 21, 2017 1:32 PM - Reechard: the trading cards and trophies thing kinda killed it
    Dec 21, 2017 1:33 PM - Reechard: I want flash sales back
    Dec 21, 2017 2:09 PM - TimeCrush: Weren't flash sales illegal in Europe or something, so to appease everybody they put every game at the only sale price it will ever be from the start to finish?
    Dec 21, 2017 2:17 PM - TimeCrush: Nothing more on sale than previous sales.
    Dec 21, 2017 2:17 PM - TimeCrush: Which means I'm still not tempted enough to buy those items at that price.
    Dec 21, 2017 7:05 PM - Reechard: I got TIS-100 and Blue Revolver
    Dec 21, 2017 7:06 PM - Reechard: and Deep Space Waifu

    Dec 25, 2017 at 7:48 PM - TimeCrush: Are we rolling tomorrow?
    Dec 25, 2017 at 7:50 PM - VintagePC: you need to get your calendar sorted out... every time we explicitly said "we're not doing next week" you ask that, and times where that hasn't been said it's the opposite :p
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:02 PM - theLumberJack: hahaha
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:15 PM - theLumberJack: this puzzle is titled furnished studio apartment
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:15 PM - VaultBot: it&#039;s just one guy
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:15 PM - theLumberJack: fuck
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:16 PM - VintagePC: hahahaha
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:16 PM - VintagePC: GL;HF
    Dec 25, 2017 at 8:55 PM - theLumberJack: well i got an achievement for my solution for cycle count

    Dec 26, 2017 7:21 AM - VintagePC: welp, aparently the usb to microsd adapter on my router has been dead for a few weeks now
    Dec 26, 2017 8:18 AM - VintagePC: DURRR
    Dec 26, 2017 8:18 AM - VintagePC: LJ: Opus magnum protip: you can move the teleporters.
    Dec 26, 2017 8:19 AM - VintagePC: just spent a good hour trying to do what seemed an impossible level before it occurred to me to try that
    Dec 26, 2017 11:43 AM - theLumberJack: thats nice
    Dec 26, 2017 11:44 AM - theLumberJack: in infinfactory you cannot move things that already in hte map
    Dec 26, 2017 2:41 PM - VintagePC: some of these just look awesome when running at full tilt...
    Dec 26, 2017 2:41 PM - VintagePC: [​IMG]
    Dec 26, 2017 2:42 PM - VintagePC: just imagine the little arms going HNNNGGGGG MOREMOREMOREMOREFASTERFASTER
    Dec 26, 2017 3:02 PM - VaultBot: because bandwidth aplenty
    Dec 26, 2017 3:02 PM - VintagePC: well, I guess not getting launched into space is a good start to infinifactory... that got dark fast
    Dec 26, 2017 3:04 PM - theLumberJack: hahaha yeah
    Dec 26, 2017 3:05 PM - theLumberJack: "failure log"
    Dec 26, 2017 3:05 PM - theLumberJack: i love that opus magnum has a gif maker
    Dec 26, 2017 3:09 PM - VintagePC: ... how could it not given how intricate some solutions look when timed to the step?
    Dec 26, 2017 5:59 PM - VaultBot: my body weekly >.< although ill be okay once the skin stops falling off my hands
    Dec 26, 2017 5:59 PM - theLumberJack: yeah i was more lamenting the lack of a good way to quickly show off my infinifactory solutions
    Dec 26, 2017 6:06 PM - VintagePC: I can see how that would be much trickier to implement for a 3d space

    Dec 27, 2017 at 7:08 AM - Reechard: HEY ARE WE PLAYING D AND D LAST NIGHT
    Dec 27, 2017 at 7:37 AM - TimeCrush: Yes
    Dec 27, 2017 at 9:32 AM - TimeCrush: Are we playing tonight?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 12:36 PM - VaultBot: "generating locales. generation complete." and then nothing?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 12:36 PM - VintagePC: dude, we played last night and you totally missed it
    Dec 27, 2017 at 1:55 PM - TimeCrush: I knew it
    Dec 27, 2017 at 1:55 PM - TimeCrush: :p
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:15 PM - Hexalan: has anyone opened up a laptop charger transformer before?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:31 PM - VintagePC: ..possibly, why?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:32 PM - Hexalan: was trying to diagnose/fix a broken charger
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:32 PM - Hexalan: however it just sparked and exploded so i'm done messing with it
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:32 PM - VintagePC: yeah, that is a "no user serviceable parts inside" unless you know exactly what you are doing
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:33 PM - VintagePC: mains voltage is not something you casually mess around with and poke at
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:34 PM - VintagePC: they're generally sealed/potted anyway, can't be opened easily, and chances are it's probably the SMPS control ICs that have died and not a jellybean replaceable part
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:35 PM - Hexalan: is "jellybean" a technical term?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:36 PM - VaultBot: yah i'm pretty sure you can lol
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:36 PM - Hexalan: lol i know just enough to open it up and poke it but not enough to make sure it doesn't explode. engineering undergrads -> explosions
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:39 PM - VintagePC: jellybean = common off-the-shelf part, e.g. resistors, capacitors, etc..
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:39 PM - VintagePC: in other words, you can get them in tubs like jellybeans
    Dec 27, 2017 at 2:39 PM - VintagePC: ...metaphorical tubs, referring to quantity here, not actual packaging
    Dec 27, 2017 at 3:45 PM - Reechard: jellybean electronics stores no longer exist :(
    Dec 27, 2017 at 5:10 PM - VintagePC: Not in the pick your part sense unless you have a local guy... but Fry's does sell resistor/capacitor kits
    Dec 27, 2017 at 6:28 PM - theLumberJack: fuck i wish fry's was here
    Dec 27, 2017 at 6:28 PM - theLumberJack: digikey is my solution and if i need something that day then jentronics
    Dec 27, 2017 at 6:29 PM - theLumberJack: but its weird going there on my own time now though because i deal with them at work too
    Dec 27, 2017 at 6:30 PM - theLumberJack: "Oh Hi! Was there something wrong with that part? Why are you all the way here?" "No everythings fine! Personal trip!"
    Dec 27, 2017 at 6:35 PM - VintagePC: Digikey is my go-to next to my hoard of parts on hand
    Dec 27, 2017 at 6:35 PM - VintagePC: here in the US even the lowest tiered shipping is there in 2 days or less via USPS
    Dec 27, 2017 at 7:53 PM - Statboy: wow, you guys are really into those zachtronics, i've got an extra infinifactory from humblebundle if you guys want it?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:09 PM - VintagePC: too late :p That's what we gave each other for vaultmas, along with magnum opus
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:11 PM - VintagePC: definitely takes a certain kind of person to enjoy those, they're some pretty evil puzzlers
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:11 PM - Statboy: have you decided on an Animal Companion?
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:18 PM - VintagePC: I have been totally occupied with non PF things so far, but I hope to do so this coming weekend
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:27 PM - Statboy: sounds good
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Statboy: http://rpgbot.net/pathfinder/characters/animal_companions.php
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:29 PM - Statboy: that might help
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:49 PM - Reechard: I'll take Infinifactory, Stat. I haven't got that one yet. I'm going to print the TIS-100 manual before we leave and hole punch it here at my dad's so it's easier to organize.
    Dec 27, 2017 at 8:49 PM - Reechard: I also need to finish leveling up...

    Dec 29, 2017 11:39 AM - Statboy: So my new boss after getting to know us for a couple months, called me into his office and offered me the promotion that the previous boss had offered me. So I'm now a supervisor and starting in a couple weeks my day off will be Thursday
    Dec 29, 2017 11:40 AM - Statboy: When I talked about this back in October nobody had any issue with Thursday so I'm hoping thats still the case, we'll still play this Tuesday, but I believe it'll be Thursdays after that. I'll find out for sure this weekend.
    Dec 29, 2017 12:08 PM - VintagePC: grats
    Dec 29, 2017 12:08 PM - VintagePC: thursday is fine for me
    Dec 29, 2017 3:10 PM - theLumberJack: Thursday for suresday
    Dec 29, 2017 3:51 PM - theLumberJack: I'll ask splyons when i talk to him next

    Dec 30, 2017 8:02 AM - TimeCrush: Ever since growing up with a Mr. Coffee, I've referred to any device that can make coffee as a Mr. Coffee.
    Dec 30, 2017 8:03 AM - TimeCrush: Also, at my old server hosting job, our monitoring tool was made by a guy in house and it was called Mr. Radar. Thank you Spaceballs.
    Dec 30, 2017 9:30 AM - VaultBot: you only shoot at 1080p
    Dec 30, 2017 9:30 AM - Statboy: The radar sir, we've been jammed!
    Dec 30, 2017 10:06 AM - VintagePC: Software engineers are just huge nerds. There's an AV scanner out there whose scanning engine is called "Luke Filewalker"
    Dec 30, 2017 3:39 PM - Reechard: Thursdays should be good on my end too
    Dec 30, 2017 8:45 PM - theLumberJack: Oh on the subject of Thursdays I'm going to a hockey game on the 11th

    Jan 1, 2018 at 9:33 AM - VintagePC: :slap
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:26 AM - VaultBot: gg stat, how far are you?
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:26 AM - Reechard: yeah but
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:26 AM - Reechard: are we
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:28 AM - Statboy: ...
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:32 AM - Statboy: hmm I have a day off tonight, *looks at thermometer*, its -12 outside. Time to forget anything outside of my apartment exists
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:36 AM - Reechard: we tried playing Borderlands last night.
    Jan 1, 2018 at 10:36 AM - Reechard: started at 10. at 10:30 the power went out.
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:40 AM - VintagePC: so I just realized I have no clue how levelling up an animal companion works
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:41 AM - VintagePC: but unless there's a serious weakness in taking a penguin companion, that's totally obligatory for the environment :p
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:50 AM - Statboy: there is no penguin companion
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:51 AM - Statboy: i'll send you a PM with the stuff for animal companions
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:52 AM - VintagePC: damn, somebody linked me a stats page for one a while back
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:52 AM - Statboy: lol, that was a guide, it didn't have the newer stuff yet though
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:52 AM - Statboy: animal companions are actually easy
    Jan 1, 2018 at 11:54 AM - VintagePC: in before wolf called Sun Sun Sun
    Jan 1, 2018 at 12:27 PM - Statboy: better than a penguin named Noot Noot
    Jan 1, 2018 at 12:31 PM - Statboy: LG unveiled an 8k TV. I think I'll just stick to my 720
    Jan 1, 2018 at 12:41 PM - VintagePC: probably a price tag to match...
    Jan 1, 2018 at 12:41 PM - VintagePC: for TV there's probably a point of diminishing returns... but that would probably make an awesome 40+ inch desktop monitor
    Jan 1, 2018 at 12:54 PM - Statboy: They havn't announced the price, but the 4k is $20,000
    Jan 1, 2018 at 1:01 PM - theLumberJack: what is it a 70"
    Jan 1, 2018 at 1:38 PM - Statboy: 88"
    Jan 1, 2018 at 1:56 PM - theLumberJack: jesus
    Jan 1, 2018 at 3:22 PM - Reechard: damn.
    Jan 1, 2018 at 3:22 PM - Reechard: I've been watching prices on 32-40" 4K displays so I can snag one for my work machine at some point.
    Jan 1, 2018 at 3:22 PM - Reechard: but I have no interest in one for gaming.
    Jan 1, 2018 at 5:52 PM - VintagePC: ability point, skill points, updated saves/BAB, and any feats your class gains... anything I'm forgetting for L4?
    Jan 1, 2018 at 5:57 PM - VintagePC: If I take a bird, can it (semantically) be any bird type I want? Obviously a penguin doesn't work because fly, but e.g. hawk, eagle, etc.
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:04 PM - VintagePC: also having trouble finding where the advancement is shown, I can't find it on the druid pages
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:09 PM - VintagePC: nevermind on the companion
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:12 PM - VintagePC: ... I totally wanted to get an owl called "hoot hoot"... but the bird stats are kind of meh
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:18 PM - VintagePC: really the only good choice is a camel or a wolf... and I don't seek to be a mounted character with all this snow
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:40 PM - Statboy: extra hit die for your character, though if you change the level in your sheet, it'll auto calc
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:40 PM - Statboy: +1 sp or hp for favored class
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:40 PM - VintagePC: yes, got those. thanks
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:41 PM - Statboy: yah there are quite a few bird companions
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:42 PM - Statboy: the basic "bird" is eagle/hawk/owl. The falcon from Ultimate Wilderness is actually decent
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:43 PM - Statboy: 3 attacks and 15 dex, 17 at level 4, 18 if you put your +1 in it. Thats good chance to hit, you can raise the damage with feats
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:45 PM - VintagePC: sadly it's not online yet
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:49 PM - Statboy: You want the statblock for it? or perhaps Reindeer which ignores difficult terrain from snow and ice
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:50 PM - VintagePC: I have more questions, probably faster to just hop in mumble a bit early tomorrow and get it sorted then
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:51 PM - VintagePC: anybody available for that?
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:51 PM - Statboy: i can be on by 6c
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:54 PM - VintagePC: that works, I'm hoping it doesn't take more than half an hour to get set up
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:55 PM - VintagePC: once I know what I'm doing it's mostly just copying stuff from the SRD into the sheet
    Jan 1, 2018 at 6:58 PM - Statboy: Companions are just mini-characters
    Jan 1, 2018 at 7:00 PM - VintagePC: yeah... but much like regular characters the info is scattered and it takes some experience to know where/what etc

    Jan 2, 2018 8:42 AM - VintagePC: Reading is hard. Click the shoutbox tab and scroll up. :stir:
    Jan 2, 2018 9:20 AM - Splyons1993: Hey guys= ill be missing tonight. Brother is back in town after being on deployment so i will be hanging out with him. No problems rerolling to Thursdays for me!
    Jan 2, 2018 11:50 AM - Statboy: we roll tonight, if you did the the thing i sent you in the PM TC
    Jan 2, 2018 12:51 PM - Reechard: Stat we're doing fine btw with the Superstition thing
    Jan 2, 2018 12:51 PM - Reechard: it's a rage power. I can't have spells cast on me *while I'm raging*
    Jan 2, 2018 12:52 PM - Reechard: so *while I'm raging* I can't be poked with the healing stick without trying to block it.
    Jan 2, 2018 12:59 PM - Reechard: which makes it so like... they can cast enlarge person on me, THEN I can go into rage
    Jan 2, 2018 12:59 PM - Reechard: #reading
    Jan 2, 2018 1:00 PM - Reechard: but
    Jan 2, 2018 1:00 PM - Reechard: are we rolling tonight
    Jan 2, 2018 1:46 PM - Statboy: yah we rolling
    Jan 2, 2018 1:48 PM - VintagePC: seems like you guys just don't learn what happens when you annoy the hell out of the DM
    Jan 2, 2018 1:48 PM - Statboy: So while raging you have to attempt the save to resist on any spell
    Jan 2, 2018 1:48 PM - Statboy: you know what Vint, i can quickly add the "Advanced" template to all your enemies and make them dire
    Jan 2, 2018 1:49 PM - VintagePC: Don't tell me, tell the guys that keep pestering you whether we're playing :p
    Jan 2, 2018 2:10 PM - Statboy: in b4 nobody has level up
    Jan 2, 2018 2:10 PM - Reechard: I'm working on that now, still.
    Jan 2, 2018 2:11 PM - Reechard: I'm trying to decide if I want to go Witch Hunter or No Escape as my rage power
    Jan 2, 2018 2:12 PM - Reechard: Witch Hunter gives me an immediate +2 damage to anything that has spells or spell-like abilities.
    Jan 2, 2018 2:12 PM - Reechard: and an extra +1 every 4 levels.
    Jan 2, 2018 2:13 PM - Reechard: No Escape lets me chase down anything that does a withdraw action out of threat.
    Jan 2, 2018 2:13 PM - Reechard: I'm thinking "big damage" and also thinking "we're fighting witches, numbnuts"
    Jan 2, 2018 2:19 PM - Reechard: Someone remind me to buy a fucking Hex Nail tonight, too.
    Jan 2, 2018 2:19 PM - Reechard: we all should have bought them at L3.
    Jan 2, 2018 2:21 PM - Reechard: 10GP for a charm that gives +2 on saves against hexes/spells/etc of fey, hags, and witches.
    Jan 2, 2018 3:03 PM - VintagePC: best hope for a convenient merchant then
    Jan 2, 2018 3:11 PM - Reechard: WINK
    Jan 2, 2018 3:30 PM - Statboy: those that took the hex nail campaign trait got 3
    Jan 2, 2018 4:19 PM - theLumberJack: heres hoping
    Jan 2, 2018 4:24 PM - theLumberJack: what time are we doing again?
    Jan 2, 2018 4:25 PM - theLumberJack: was it 730 eastern or 730 central
    Jan 2, 2018 4:46 PM - VintagePC: yes
    Jan 2, 2018 4:59 PM - VaultBot: it&#039;s a rage power. i suspect 9 month old charged with attempted murder in pakistan by corrupt police
    Jan 2, 2018 4:59 PM - theLumberJack: Oh dear
    Jan 2, 2018 5:08 PM - Statboy: 6:30c 7:30e
    Jan 2, 2018 5:14 PM - theLumberJack: 8:30a
    Jan 2, 2018 5:33 PM - VintagePC: 9n
    Jan 2, 2018 5:40 PM - TimeCrush: Hit die + con mod ?
    Jan 2, 2018 5:41 PM - Statboy: 1/2 hd + con mod, just put your new level into your character sheet and it'll autocalc. You only have to add +1 to your favored class option
    Jan 2, 2018 5:43 PM - TimeCrush: Eh, my skills weren't matching up right that way. Was saying I was only getting 4 skill pts a lvl so I'm trying to make sure things aren't slipping by me.
    Jan 2, 2018 5:43 PM - theLumberJack: fucking newfies
    Jan 2, 2018 5:43 PM - theLumberJack: and their half timezone
    Jan 2, 2018 5:44 PM - TimeCrush: I'm breaking things.
    Jan 2, 2018 5:47 PM - VaultBot: that one scrim so far fuckin pencils smokey can suck a big fat one
