    Jan 13, 2019 10:56 AM - theLumberJack: The temptation is real
    Jan 13, 2019 11:10 AM - SoL DarkLord: that it is.
    Jan 13, 2019 6:30 PM - Reechard: and like, that's kind of a standing offer, it's not like there aren't (literally) thousands of video games here, hundreds of board games, and pinball/arcade/PC... the only thing lacking here is Internet.
    Jan 13, 2019 6:30 PM - Reechard: doesn't have to be gencon.
    Jan 13, 2019 6:32 PM - Reechard: gimme a few months, I'm remodeling the bathroom :D
    Jan 13, 2019 7:01 PM - theLumberJack: i can go in the yard
    Jan 13, 2019 7:02 PM - VaultBot: lonesome revealing his browsing habits?
    Jan 13, 2019 7:02 PM - Reechard: I suppose in August I could just put a port-a-jon in the driveway and a shower head on the garden hose :D
    Jan 13, 2019 7:03 PM - theLumberJack: xD
    Jan 13, 2019 7:04 PM - theLumberJack: and you are less than a day away from my grandpa
    Jan 13, 2019 9:43 PM - Hexalan: >remodeling the bathroom
    Jan 13, 2019 9:43 PM - Hexalan: is that the bathroom with the old lady piss carpet?

    Jan 14, 2019 7:09 AM - Reechard: the old lady piss carpet was removed day1... now it's just the 1960s linoleum that was under the piss carpet. We scraped the glue off of it and cleaned it with industrial grade applications of simple green and white vinegar
    Jan 14, 2019 7:09 AM - Reechard: but yeah, the bathroom hasn't been remodeled in 50 years and various parts of it (mostly the tub) are falling apart.
    Jan 14, 2019 10:19 AM - theLumberJack: We all set to roll tonight?
    Jan 14, 2019 10:41 AM - TimeCrush: Dude I'm so down to hang at Reechards
    Jan 14, 2019 10:48 AM - Reechard: LJ aren't you in Windsor?
    Jan 14, 2019 10:49 AM - Reechard: I don't think you can like, be in Canada and be a closer drive to me.
    Jan 14, 2019 10:50 AM - Reechard: it is under 5 hours by car. You don't even have to stop to pee.
    Jan 14, 2019 11:00 AM - Hexalan: Reechard if I go to your house will you fight me with swords
    Jan 14, 2019 11:08 AM - Statboy: Yah we are all set to roll
    Jan 14, 2019 11:40 AM - VintagePC: yay linoleum asbestos
    Jan 14, 2019 11:40 AM - VintagePC: Looks like I have internet, I'll be able to join you all tonight
    Jan 14, 2019 12:33 PM - theLumberJack: I live in Halifax
    Jan 14, 2019 12:33 PM - theLumberJack: Crazed Lumberjack was in Hamilton
    Jan 14, 2019 12:35 PM - theLumberJack: I'm not even in the same time zone!
    Jan 14, 2019 12:41 PM - theLumberJack: It's about 25 hour drive
    Jan 14, 2019 1:27 PM - Reechard: oh yeah the other LJ
    Jan 14, 2019 1:27 PM - Reechard: CLJ
    Jan 14, 2019 3:54 PM - theLumberJack: Did we stop with resting?
    Jan 14, 2019 4:02 PM - theLumberJack: we didn't did we, we ended after the bear thing
    Jan 14, 2019 4:34 PM - VintagePC: I think so
    Jan 14, 2019 5:42 PM - VintagePC: I'll be limited to one monitor which'll be annoying for char sheets
    Jan 14, 2019 6:04 PM - Statboy: no you did not stop with resting
    Jan 14, 2019 6:04 PM - VaultBot: pretty sure thats like the baseline top 3 unless ive missed some other samurai
    Jan 14, 2019 6:04 PM - Statboy: you literally just rested before the bear and Cesseer
    Jan 14, 2019 6:07 PM - theLumberJack: cool
    Jan 14, 2019 6:07 PM - theLumberJack: i just wanted to make sure i didn't have to immediately prep spells
    Jan 14, 2019 6:29 PM - VintagePC: omw in in a sec, just grabbing a drink first
    Jan 14, 2019 6:38 PM - Statboy: Reechard

    Jan 15, 2019 6:03 AM - Reechard: LJ I hope you have restoration today... I'm still walking around doing all this shit with a -6 dex drain
    Jan 15, 2019 11:51 AM - TimeCrush: Anybody enjoy Dead by Daylight?
    Jan 15, 2019 11:51 AM - TimeCrush: I've been getting into that a little bit lately, and would be fun to have some "AHHHH" moments with friends on comms
    Jan 15, 2019 6:49 PM - Statboy: thats seems like one of those games thats fun with friends, but boring with rando's
    Jan 15, 2019 8:07 PM - TimeCrush: 'frustrating' would be a better fitting word. Sometimes people just go rogue and try to be the last person alive.

    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:29 AM - theLumberJack: Reechard restoration just isn't a druid spell
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:29 AM - theLumberJack: It's not that I've been neglecting to prepare it for you
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:39 AM - theLumberJack: A wand of restoration will be 21 000 gp
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:40 AM - theLumberJack: And then someone who can use the wand
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:41 AM - theLumberJack: So whoever has the best umd
    Jan 16, 2019 at 10:01 AM - Statboy: or get a 5th that can heal
    Jan 16, 2019 at 10:48 AM - VaultBot: angry hobos.png the angry hobos team
    Jan 16, 2019 at 10:48 AM - Statboy: Also restoration costs 100gp to cast
    Jan 16, 2019 at 11:03 AM - TimeCrush:
    Jan 16, 2019 at 11:30 AM - VaultBot: well i have to take an int penalty for that bad joke...
    Jan 16, 2019 at 11:30 AM - theLumberJack: which would make a wand cost 50 000 more gp
    Jan 16, 2019 at 11:31 AM - theLumberJack: so the best bet is to find someone in the game or a new character
    Jan 16, 2019 at 1:12 PM - Statboy: I just saw a map a little further in the book that is 170x210
    Jan 16, 2019 at 3:11 PM - theLumberJack: Oh my
    Jan 16, 2019 at 4:06 PM - theLumberJack: do you mean in this book or the next book?
    Jan 16, 2019 at 5:30 PM - Statboy: book 5
    Jan 16, 2019 at 5:39 PM - Statboy: Seeing you guys nope out of the dragon room with the alter, I can't wait to see how fast you nope outta some rooms early in book 5
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:32 PM - VaultBot: now i find myself maybe being too blunt about what i want you to be sworn in by the governor :d
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:32 PM - theLumberJack: Lol oh boy
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:43 PM - Reechard: we're going back to that dragon room.
    Jan 16, 2019 at 6:43 PM - Reechard: screw that
    Jan 16, 2019 at 8:02 PM - VintagePC: didn't we just nope out because some folks were low on hp?
    Jan 16, 2019 at 8:35 PM - Reechard: psh pshaw and piffle

    Jan 17, 2019 8:37 AM - theLumberJack: I am very excited for book five
    Jan 17, 2019 4:53 PM - Statboy: Ive already dropped new artwork on roll20 for book 5
    Jan 17, 2019 5:55 PM - theLumberJack: that's what ive been waiting for
    Jan 17, 2019 5:55 PM - theLumberJack: that's why i wanted this campaign
    Jan 17, 2019 5:58 PM - Splyons1993: MUH SPOILERS
    Jan 17, 2019 5:59 PM - Reechard: do I finally get to turn on the hand grenades I've been carrying?
    Jan 17, 2019 6:04 PM - theLumberJack: that's not the only thing you get to turn on
    Jan 17, 2019 6:04 PM - theLumberJack: ;) :stir:
    Jan 17, 2019 6:55 PM - Statboy: I might have a 5th for monday, i told him the party needed a healer, and told him the team comp. He goes "you already have 2 healers why do you need a third?"
    Jan 17, 2019 6:55 PM - Statboy: so i'm not too hopeful, but maybe he can be shown the error of thinking anybody who can use a wand of cure light is a healer
    Jan 17, 2019 6:58 PM - VaultBot: hey any of you geeks that want to hit s after i type roll.
    Jan 17, 2019 6:58 PM - Statboy: You don't have hand grenades yet, not until your official merchant can sell them to you, or whatever you can scavenge

    Jan 22, 2019 12:06 AM - Teraunce Foaloke necros a thread and makes his first post to post a character backstory before passing out.
    Jan 22, 2019 12:08 AM - Hexalan: hmmmm
    Jan 22, 2019 12:09 AM - Teraunce Foaloke: seemed the right place to post it.
    Jan 22, 2019 6:23 AM - theLumberJack: :thumb up:
    Jan 22, 2019 7:12 AM - Teraunce Foaloke resets his color?
    Jan 22, 2019 7:15 AM - Reechard: psh no
    Jan 22, 2019 7:15 AM - Reechard: you'll get a color someday :D
    Jan 22, 2019 7:16 AM - Teraunce Foaloke fails at setting his username color in the shoutbox to silver.
    Jan 22, 2019 7:55 AM - VintagePC: that's text colour
    Jan 22, 2019 7:55 AM - VintagePC: you're purple because today is (or you said it was) your b-day
    Jan 22, 2019 7:57 AM - theLumberJack: happy birthday!
    Jan 22, 2019 11:38 AM - Teraunce Foaloke: odd color to have as a birthday color but it is legit my birthday.
    Jan 22, 2019 12:01 PM - VintagePC: IIRC we just wanted something garish on purpose... that colour is as old as VF4 itself
    Jan 22, 2019 12:06 PM - Teraunce Foaloke: Given I did not know this site existed until yesterday I have no idea how old it is.
    Jan 22, 2019 12:52 PM - VintagePC: that's fair

    Jan 23, 2019 at 12:15 PM - Teraunce Foaloke: Why do I ever bother trying to make backstories? Whenever I do I never get accepted. bleh, well have fun I guess. Time to look for non-existant Monday/Wednesday games again.
    Jan 23, 2019 at 1:39 PM - Hexalan: what is happening in this place
    Jan 23, 2019 at 1:59 PM - Teraunce Foaloke: disappointment.
    Jan 23, 2019 at 2:56 PM - TimeCrush: Probably because they didn't wanna have some kid trying to yiff every npc they come across.
    Jan 23, 2019 at 2:56 PM - TimeCrush: [​IMG]
    Jan 23, 2019 at 2:58 PM - TimeCrush: It also has all the nuance of a 15 year olds fanfic OC - "He is the chosen one who also shoots lasers out of his eyes, and is invulnerable to whatever damage you specifically do. Also he hates his dad."
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:19 PM - VintagePC: I don't even
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:34 PM - LavaRed: Reechard spoils all my fun
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:35 PM - LavaRed: which is probably for the best
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:47 PM - LavaRed: sooo many crickets
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:47 PM - LavaRed: yall, I have the next 7-10 days to spend on my butt in recovery, the least you can do is help to entertain me :p
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:51 PM - VintagePC: we have this thing called a minecraft server
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:51 PM - VintagePC: with glowy trees and whatnot
    Jan 23, 2019 at 3:52 PM - VintagePC: you should check it out sometime
    Jan 23, 2019 at 4:01 PM - Teraunce Foaloke: I never in that thing claimed he was the chosen one. I in-backstory explained why he has the Sacred Touch and Reactionary traits, explained why he has the alternate Forest kobold and Dayraider kobold racial traits. I also explicitly stated why he's being a hero, why he has a Nature revelation, Why he has the Deep One curse, why he is a dragon disciple, and why next level he will have functional...
    Jan 23, 2019 at 4:03 PM - Teraunce Foaloke: Wings. I also explained a few other things, and for your information TimeCrush not every character needs a dark and gritty emo backstory. Also, I'm 28 you 15-year old emo kid.
    Jan 23, 2019 at 4:09 PM - VintagePC: lets try to keep things civil, shall we?
    Jan 23, 2019 at 4:55 PM - LavaRed: Soooo yea with the name-calling...I don't even let my kids play that game dawg
    Jan 23, 2019 at 4:56 PM - LavaRed: also, omg yes Vintage! Minecraft for days!!
    Jan 23, 2019 at 4:57 PM - VintagePC: I'll gladly join if I see you in
    Jan 23, 2019 at 5:14 PM - LavaRed: I'll let you know
    Jan 23, 2019 at 5:14 PM - LavaRed: My surgery is supposed to take about 4 hours tomorrow
    Jan 23, 2019 at 5:15 PM - LavaRed: He said he's not doing it the old school method but it's still an extensive procedure so I'm kinda freaking

    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:22 PM - Hexalan: ok so
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:22 PM - Hexalan: a while ago someone mentioned having a person to fill in the a slot in the campaign
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:23 PM - Hexalan: so i didn't want to insult them by saying "is your character the furry or the scaly riding the furry or the bird riding the scaly riding the furry"
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:24 PM - Hexalan: But actually how did you get here? Who comes to this website who doesn't already know the people here and what's going on? I'm genuinely confused as to how this sequence of events came to pass
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:28 PM - Hexalan: i hope you didn't leave forever because i really want to know how you got here
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:39 PM - Statboy: I got in another game, i was in that games group chat, and mentioned we needed one more
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:47 PM - Statboy: to somebody else that i was chatting with
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:49 PM - TimeCrush: I mean, I'm not opposed to him being here - but understand who you are, and that its going to catch a healthy amount of jest
    Jan 24, 2019 at 6:50 PM - TimeCrush: If you project yourself as a furry - buckle up for the furry comments
    Jan 24, 2019 at 7:02 PM - Statboy: we had our annual sensitivity training at work last week, our security guards were guilty of every fire-able offense HR listed.
    Jan 24, 2019 at 7:02 PM - Statboy: except we never spoke that way to the one person that nobody likes
    Jan 24, 2019 at 7:07 PM - Statboy: honestly nobody cares how you present yourself unless you present yourself as an asshole

    Jan 25, 2019 9:04 AM - Statboy: Dont worry we'll kill you. Yrax did focused the gunslinger cause he was the only one bypassing dr
    Jan 25, 2019 9:23 AM - VintagePC: If that's what it takes I'm perfectly happy to be branded master turtler :p
    Jan 25, 2019 9:25 AM - VintagePC: For the most part just not being in a place to get full-rounded by the boss baddie works pretty well
    Jan 25, 2019 10:21 AM - Splyons1993: yeah i was fairly convinced i was gonna get one shot by that dargon
    Jan 25, 2019 10:22 AM - Splyons1993: when the very first shot i did was a crit for a quarter of his health i was just mentally like "aw fuck, im priority 1 now"
    Jan 25, 2019 2:42 PM - VintagePC: how ya feelin
    Jan 25, 2019 2:42 PM - VaultBot: it's on there end not ours
    Jan 25, 2019 2:42 PM - VintagePC: lavabread
    Jan 25, 2019 6:47 PM - Statboy: LJ is your Druid going to use summon natures ally at all? If so give me a short list you might use so i can prep tokens

    Jan 26, 2019 4:18 PM - VaultBot: well that is that a lot of that video is both funny and facepalm worthy

    Jan 26, 2019 6:10 PM - theLumberJack: I'll try and think of some likely candidates for it Stat
    Jan 26, 2019 6:10 PM - theLumberJack: I don't have spontaneous casting of it though, so its something i'd have to prepare
    Jan 26, 2019 6:12 PM - VaultBot: yah we are all set to roll
    Jan 26, 2019 6:12 PM - Statboy: storm lord and all that, but still summon natures ally is imo the most useful combat spell
    Jan 26, 2019 6:12 PM - Statboy: need a distraction, summon. Need someone to eat an attack, summon. Need to deal damage, summon
    Jan 26, 2019 6:21 PM - theLumberJack: true true

    Jan 28, 2019 11:41 AM - Statboy: Working in security is difficult, you gotta set the lock on your chair just right so when an alarm happens and wakes you up you dont fall over
    Jan 28, 2019 11:44 AM - Reechard: then you gotta do rounds like... 4 times a night.
    Jan 28, 2019 11:44 AM - Reechard: make sure none of the locked doors are hanging open, that kinda thing.
    Jan 28, 2019 11:44 AM - Reechard: and if they are, you go call the police.
    Jan 28, 2019 11:45 AM - VaultBot: the ending. i thought the twist was cool./ boss in 2 was difficult if i recall reading somewhere you got time on sundays. i think we have an add-on book of prestige fighter/monk classes. master samurai is listed, but the end result was an on-par or even a crappier product
    Jan 28, 2019 11:45 AM - theLumberJack: I always did rounds once an hour if nothing suspicious happens
    Jan 28, 2019 11:46 AM - Reechard: did they have RFID tags mounted in the walls
    Jan 28, 2019 11:46 AM - Reechard: and a scanner you had to scan them with
    Jan 28, 2019 11:46 AM - Reechard: so they knew you did it
    Jan 28, 2019 11:47 AM - theLumberJack: no
    Jan 28, 2019 11:47 AM - Reechard: that's a thing now...
    Jan 28, 2019 11:47 AM - theLumberJack: it was just the more enjoyable part of the hour
    Jan 28, 2019 11:47 AM - theLumberJack: now? they had that when my grandpa worked maintenance
    Jan 28, 2019 11:47 AM - VaultBot: but i thought that show died off at this point.
    Jan 28, 2019 11:47 AM - Reechard: they weren't happy when I showed them you can buy RFID tags and a programmer on ebay for like $5 and go around it
    Jan 28, 2019 11:48 AM - theLumberJack: lol my friend wasn't happy when i showed him i could open his apartment door with a credit card
    Jan 28, 2019 12:11 PM - Statboy: This is a hospital i work at, so most doors are unlocked, its mostly fighting the druggies putting them in restraints and arresting homeless sleepers on campus. Its a state owned campus so we are the PD and we arrest.
    Jan 28, 2019 12:22 PM - theLumberJack: yar thats very different than up here. no security guards making arrests even if its government
    Jan 28, 2019 1:37 PM - Reechard: there are a couple of college campuses I've been to with commissioned police departments.
    Jan 28, 2019 1:37 PM - Reechard: but most of the time it's just security guards, and most of the time they're only hired to call the police if there's a problem.
    Jan 28, 2019 1:37 PM - Reechard: flashlight+radio kinda job.
    Jan 28, 2019 1:39 PM - theLumberJack: you have to get a license to be a guard here, you have to get a different license to have a nightstick, and another for a gun
    Jan 28, 2019 1:39 PM - theLumberJack: a security guards main roles is a professional witness
    Jan 28, 2019 1:39 PM - theLumberJack: here anyway
    Jan 28, 2019 1:40 PM - Statboy: There are different levels of security. If you call securitas or some outsource company they tend to be just a warm body that does nothing
    Jan 28, 2019 1:41 PM - Reechard: well yeah, like I went through Asp and Monadnock and pepper spray and taser certifications in the police academy
    Jan 28, 2019 1:41 PM - Statboy: My hospital security has a higher rate of violent calls than Omaha PD and a higher rate of injury
    Jan 28, 2019 1:41 PM - Reechard: they were all in addition to the base training
    Jan 28, 2019 1:45 PM - VaultBot: the exception being when the power goes out and the tantrums
    Jan 28, 2019 1:45 PM - theLumberJack: the security at our hospitals is outsourced. they one of the few security contracts that don't have strict hands off policies for guards
    Jan 28, 2019 1:45 PM - theLumberJack: cause that just would not work in that setting
    Jan 28, 2019 1:54 PM - theLumberJack: i dont think ive seen any guard positions that aren't outsourced around here tbh
    Jan 28, 2019 5:42 PM - Statboy: the things you guys have listed for sale right now gives you a little more than 42k a piece, not including the things LJ already listed the price for
    Jan 28, 2019 5:43 PM - Statboy: so you should be looking around 50k a piece-ish to play with
    Jan 28, 2019 6:17 PM - theLumberJack: nbd guys
    Jan 28, 2019 9:27 PM - oceanboy86: What's New?
    Jan 28, 2019 9:41 PM - VintagePC: not too much, long time no see

    Jan 29, 2019 5:59 PM - VintagePC looks at the forecast here which is just under freezing and doesn't say anything
    Jan 29, 2019 6:00 PM - Reechard: nah it's fine we're like... from here.
    Jan 29, 2019 6:00 PM - Reechard: I went to the store and got some extra milk and bread and cereal...
    Jan 29, 2019 6:00 PM - Reechard: we have like 50lbs of rice and 40lbs of beans if shit *really* goes south
    Jan 29, 2019 6:00 PM - Reechard: we have other food too it's fine
    Jan 29, 2019 6:02 PM - Reechard: but I also have like, a gas stove, gas furnace, a passive gas wall heater that doesn't take electric, a generator, and a big propane camping heater... and like... a butane burner too
    Jan 29, 2019 6:02 PM - VaultBot: haha spot your feign dead
    Jan 29, 2019 6:02 PM - Reechard: because I'm *from here*
    Jan 29, 2019 6:04 PM - Statboy: aren't quite a few of us in the polar vortex?
    Jan 29, 2019 6:06 PM - Reechard: yeah, TC is gonna get a spankin too
    Jan 29, 2019 6:06 PM - Statboy: i'm by far not in the worst at -35 to -40 windchill
    Jan 29, 2019 6:24 PM - VintagePC: Off topic.. I recall reading something about a browser extension that was able to detect and skip video "sponsored by" segments on YT... any chance someone here knows what it's called?
    Jan 29, 2019 8:09 PM - TimeCrush: State cancelled work tomorrow, so got that going for me :)

    Jan 30, 2019 11:25 AM - TimeCrush: I'm hoarding stray kittens
    Jan 30, 2019 11:25 AM - TimeCrush: I've become that old lady
    Jan 30, 2019 2:55 PM - Hexalan: oceanboy where have you been
    Jan 30, 2019 3:15 PM - Hexalan: reechard is that guy on the walmart clearing the shelves out of milk eggs and bread right before the blizzard
    Jan 30, 2019 3:54 PM - VaultBot: wtf are you looking at that you can't be on public wifi? lol
    Jan 30, 2019 3:54 PM - Reechard: I only bought 1 loaf of bread and 1 gallon of milk...
    Jan 30, 2019 3:55 PM - Reechard: and a couple extra cases of water...
    Jan 30, 2019 3:55 PM - Reechard: just in case the pipes freeze.
    Jan 30, 2019 4:56 PM - VintagePC: first pass I read that as "cases of wine"
    Jan 30, 2019 4:56 PM - VintagePC: gotta keep lava sane, then everything's all right :D
    Jan 30, 2019 6:18 PM - Statboy: local people were having fun with the cold on twitter

    Jan 30, 2019 6:18 PM - Statboy: https://twitter.com/omaha_scanner/status/1090651135399084032
    Jan 30, 2019 6:22 PM - theLumberJack: Lol
    Jan 30, 2019 8:05 PM - VintagePC: Welp, I guess the cold means we failed our pathfinder campaign...

    Jan 31, 2019 3:00 PM - Statboy: Everytime you guys make fun of me for being an old man without technology im reminding you of that post vintage
    Jan 31, 2019 7:19 PM - VintagePC: I resent that. I have exactly zero IOT things
    Jan 31, 2019 7:20 PM - VintagePC: MY TV STILL HAS VACUUM TUBES, DAMMIT
    Jan 31, 2019 7:20 PM - VintagePC: DONT YOU TRY TO OUT OLD-MAN ME
    Jan 31, 2019 8:10 PM - Reechard: man I literally watched Terminator 2 on Laserdisc on my 19" tube tv the other day.
    Jan 31, 2019 8:10 PM - Reechard: and spaceballs a week ago

    Feb 1, 2019 5:32 AM - Reechard: idk man it's all finite.
    Feb 1, 2019 5:32 AM - Reechard: all of my optical media (like my laserdiscs) is gonna rot
    Feb 1, 2019 5:33 AM - Reechard: all of your magnetic tapes are going to fail
    Feb 1, 2019 5:33 AM - Reechard: we have to do super geeky shit to keep some of our old man stuff running...
    Feb 1, 2019 5:42 AM - Reechard: granted mine is way less finite.
    Feb 1, 2019 6:21 AM - VintagePC: your discs don't just vanish if the publisher goes away though
    Feb 1, 2019 6:38 AM - Reechard: I bet my license to use it did...
    Feb 1, 2019 6:38 AM - Reechard: lol
    Feb 1, 2019 6:38 AM - Reechard: watch me care
    Feb 1, 2019 7:21 AM - VintagePC: YOU SHOULD
    Feb 1, 2019 7:21 AM - VintagePC: :p
    Feb 1, 2019 7:21 AM - Reechard: I can't wait for the first movie company to sue a normal person for using an expired physical copy of a media product
    Feb 1, 2019 7:22 AM - Reechard: I love watching big corporations do boneheaded idiot stuff and go bankrupt
    Feb 1, 2019 7:22 AM - Reechard: I just hope that Blizzard/Bethesda/EA IP ends up with better studios once they manage to fuck themselves into the ground.
    Feb 1, 2019 7:24 AM - Reechard: *they wont*... that will not happen... but I can hope.
    Feb 1, 2019 7:24 AM - theLumberJack: lol
    Feb 1, 2019 7:24 AM - theLumberJack: i will admit i bought a smart tv
    Feb 1, 2019 7:24 AM - theLumberJack: but i at least didn't buy one with a microphone
    Feb 1, 2019 7:25 AM - Reechard: yeah I've had a smart tv for a while but A: no mic B: never signed in to any of its shit C: never hooked it to my network at all
    Feb 1, 2019 7:26 AM - theLumberJack: i have mine on my network
    Feb 1, 2019 7:26 AM - theLumberJack: thats how i watch netflix
    Feb 1, 2019 7:38 AM - TimeCrush: I'm pretty balls deep in the IOT.
    Feb 1, 2019 7:39 AM - TimeCrush: Listen in as I beat my meat to some real obscene shit FBI. If your in I'm in.
    Feb 1, 2019 7:40 AM - TimeCrush: Not that I enjoy getting spied on, I've just accepted I'm not avoiding it anymore
    Feb 1, 2019 8:53 AM - Reechard: oh my personal info has been stolen from people that should have been trustworthy like... a dozen times
    Feb 1, 2019 8:53 AM - Reechard: and there's no legal recourse for them getting all my shit stolen
    Feb 1, 2019 8:53 AM - Reechard: for me
    Feb 1, 2019 8:54 AM - Reechard: so.... yeah. I have a first gen Alexa I guess but the thing isn't even plugged in because the non-home-automation features of the thing don't impress me
    Feb 1, 2019 8:54 AM - Reechard: I'm waiting for wifi outlets to hit like $3/ea
    Feb 1, 2019 8:54 AM - Reechard: and wifi lightbulbs are *stupid* priced.
    Feb 1, 2019 8:55 AM - Reechard: Philips Hue is still $40/bulb when using a lightswitch you can buy LED bulbs for $2
    Feb 1, 2019 9:00 AM - Statboy: I have replaced 2 outlet covers with the night light versions but that only has a light sensor and led lights on it
    Feb 1, 2019 9:25 AM - Reechard: yeah, USB charger outlet covers are on the list too
    Feb 1, 2019 9:31 AM - Hexalan: <wifi lightbulbs>
    Feb 1, 2019 9:31 AM - Hexalan: what, so you can dim the lights with your phone?
    Feb 1, 2019 9:35 AM - Statboy: Change the colors. Ive seen people setup their Alexa to call police and set the lights to flashing red if they yell alexa intruder
    Feb 1, 2019 9:36 AM - Statboy: As well as play a siren. They hope to scare off intruders with it, cause their home is a gun free zone
    Feb 1, 2019 9:37 AM - Reechard: yeah you can also do timers and programs and voice control of groupings, set light levels for various tasks...
    Feb 1, 2019 9:38 AM - Reechard: it's pretty powerful stuff... but...
    Feb 1, 2019 9:38 AM - Reechard: It's $40 for a lightbulb, when there are $3 lightbulbs available that perform the *exact* same primary function.
    Feb 1, 2019 9:42 AM - Hexalan: unless the light bulb is lesbian and boosts my intelligence by 2 for 12 hours i'm not interested
    Feb 1, 2019 9:58 AM - Reechard: well all of the lightbulbs in my house are male because all of the sockets are female
    Feb 1, 2019 9:59 AM - Reechard: so finding a lesbian lightbulb is probably gonna be hard
    Feb 1, 2019 10:30 AM - TimeCrush: The only feature I wanted is the feature I got - Setup several Google minis throughout the home discretely, so I can move from room to room with no break in my podcasts or music.
    Feb 1, 2019 10:30 AM - TimeCrush: Also, on demand question asking for that stupid shit
    Feb 1, 2019 12:07 PM - Reechard: my house is too small to care about synced music...
    Feb 1, 2019 12:07 PM - Reechard: if I wanna listen in the other room I turn it up a couple clicks lol
    Feb 1, 2019 4:44 PM - Statboy: I have this thing called a handheld radio, it lets the music come with me, even when i go for a walk outside
    Feb 1, 2019 6:18 PM - Statboy: also it costs $0 per month, no contract, it doesn't require updates, and it lets you know when tornado's are coming
    Feb 1, 2019 8:11 PM - Reechard: ew I'll stick with Spotify thanks.
    Feb 1, 2019 8:12 PM - VaultBot: you got here
    Feb 1, 2019 8:12 PM - Reechard: I do *not* miss *commercials*
    Feb 1, 2019 8:12 PM - Reechard: I'll pay money all day every day to not see advertisements.
    Feb 1, 2019 8:30 PM - VintagePC: amen

    Feb 2, 2019 at 8:36 AM - Statboy: I just press a button and it goes to a different station. There is always at least one station playing good music
    Feb 2, 2019 at 9:17 AM - VintagePC: not that I explicitly pay... got a free year of pandora as a promo, and because cable+internet is cheaper than just internet (even if just SD) there's musicchoice channels
    Feb 2, 2019 at 9:17 AM - VintagePC: so I just have my cable box piped in to my amp
    Feb 2, 2019 at 10:20 AM - Reechard: yeah... I have my *favorite* music in this thing... but... I installed Bluetooth in it too.
    Feb 2, 2019 at 10:20 AM - Reechard: [​IMG]
    Feb 2, 2019 at 10:22 AM - Reechard: *none* of the stuff I listen to on a regular basis is being played on any radio station anywhere, though.

    Feb 2, 2019 at 9:26 PM - VaultBot: i ordered food :(
    Feb 2, 2019 at 9:26 PM - VintagePC: "All original consolidated 1099s available online and mailed by February 15. "
