If this notice is up for extended periods, there is probably a wait-and-see situation such as a power or link outage. Thanks for your patience. (2:43:40 UTC)

    Jul 6, 2016 1:24 PM - Geoff: Question for anyone who knows computers well. So, my CPU has been overheating, especially when trying to record. Right now though, I've got the side off the computer and a regular fan pointed at the inside, and it's been working but my computer is now really loud when recording. Am I possibly ruining the CPU doing this?
    Jul 6, 2016 2:51 PM - TimeCrush: What temp are you hitting when it gets noisy?
    Jul 6, 2016 2:52 PM - TimeCrush: You should be able to google ____ CPU heat threshold and use your best judgement. If its running within 5 degrees of that its probably not doing well for it.
    Jul 6, 2016 2:52 PM - TimeCrush: I recommend downloading http://openhardwaremonitor.org/
    Jul 6, 2016 2:53 PM - TimeCrush: That will give you temp readouts and fan performance readings.
    Jul 6, 2016 2:53 PM - TimeCrush: It your maxing out your fans, probably not good.
    Jul 6, 2016 3:15 PM - Geoff: I only have the 1 fan inside it, and this pogram shows it constantly changing the max value.
    Jul 6, 2016 3:19 PM - TimeCrush: Is it giving you a percentage of what the fan is running at?
    Jul 6, 2016 3:22 PM - TimeCrush: There should be a 'current' and 'max' value. The max is how fast its seen it run since the program was opened.
    Jul 6, 2016 3:48 PM - Geoff: Shows my fan's max right now is 2948, the value constantly changing.
    Jul 6, 2016 3:50 PM - TimeCrush: Hm, I get a percentile readout as well.
    Jul 6, 2016 3:50 PM - TimeCrush: Doesn't sound super cranked though, mine idles around 5k rpm
    Jul 6, 2016 3:51 PM - TimeCrush: Again though, "_____ CPU Fan idle speed."
    Jul 6, 2016 3:52 PM - Geoff: What I've been worried about is that normally, if I try to record DbD gameplay, I'll get maybe 10 minutes max before my cpu temp is too high and I'll shut down. With a regular floor fan pointed at my pc though, I can easily record with no issue. I jus don't know how safe that is. And let me google that quick
    Jul 6, 2016 3:52 PM - Geoff: So...reading up on the current Dragon Ball Super story...Black Goku...I like this
    Jul 6, 2016 7:52 PM - Hexalan: damn orc still has that adamantium flail
    Jul 6, 2016 7:55 PM - VintagePC: diplomacy Mumminofrah into having him resurrected :p
    Jul 6, 2016 7:55 PM - VintagePC: surely she was entertained by the chariot race
    Jul 6, 2016 8:02 PM - Hexalan: we're planning on a new character, not a raise dead at all, right?
    Jul 6, 2016 8:06 PM - VintagePC: it was too expensive to do a resurrection... but if you can convince someone else to pay... I wouldn't mind continuing
    Jul 6, 2016 8:06 PM - VintagePC: :D
    Jul 6, 2016 8:20 PM - Razer does a surf-by wave
    Jul 6, 2016 8:22 PM - VintagePC: beep boop, there's a stranger!
    Jul 6, 2016 8:23 PM - VintagePC: :bacon :bacon
    Jul 6, 2016 8:25 PM - Razer: Very few are stranger than me.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:28 PM - VintagePC: .. I don't think I've seen you around since I got lost and moved to 'murica
    Jul 6, 2016 8:32 PM - VintagePC: also, you belong in the stone age club
    Jul 6, 2016 8:32 PM - VintagePC: reserved for the elite from before anyone can remeber :p
    Jul 6, 2016 8:33 PM - Razer: its been a while since I last dropped in here.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:34 PM - Razer: the past couple of years have been...... interesting.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:34 PM - VintagePC: in a good way or a bad way?
    Jul 6, 2016 8:35 PM - Razer: in a BUSY way.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:35 PM - VaultBot: now i will have all 1-8 for the game sunday
    Jul 6, 2016 8:35 PM - VintagePC: heh... sounds like life. got plans? NOPE
    Jul 6, 2016 8:36 PM - Razer: pretty much.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:36 PM - Razer: between work and hobbies, I've stayed busy.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:36 PM - Razer: and some of teh hobbies eat a lot of time
    Jul 6, 2016 8:36 PM - VintagePC: between the two.... they take all the time in a day. I could probably say the same
    Jul 6, 2016 8:36 PM - VaultBot: hopefully tonight :)
    Jul 6, 2016 8:37 PM - VintagePC: ... shut up vaultbot, you're not getting lucky tonight
    Jul 6, 2016 8:37 PM - VintagePC: lava's not around
    Jul 6, 2016 8:37 PM - Razer: Hah
    Jul 6, 2016 8:37 PM - VaultBot: they went with the @user syntax in posts and whatnot
    Jul 6, 2016 8:38 PM - VintagePC: the pinnacle of modern AI. Asking our CM for blowjobs
    Jul 6, 2016 8:38 PM - Razer: 'tween amatuer radio, metalworking and all the electronics stuff, I stay busy
    Jul 6, 2016 8:39 PM - VintagePC: HAM? I'd ask if you run into reechard on the air :p
    Jul 6, 2016 8:39 PM - VaultBot: now off to swoon over some terrible romance series.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:40 PM - Razer: lol
    Jul 6, 2016 8:40 PM - Razer: not that I KNOW of, but its always possible. I dont remember his callsign
    Jul 6, 2016 8:40 PM - VintagePC: hah
    Jul 6, 2016 8:41 PM - Razer: of course, there's only a few dozen tens of thousands of us in teh US.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:41 PM - VintagePC: true... though I don't know if you two ever discussed it in private and chatted
    Jul 6, 2016 8:42 PM - Razer: we had discussed it once or twice, but I didn't have a HF radio at the time.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:42 PM - VintagePC: ah
    Jul 6, 2016 8:42 PM - Razer: I've progressed a bit since the last time I was here. :)
    Jul 6, 2016 8:43 PM - VintagePC: good to hear
    Jul 6, 2016 8:44 PM - Razer: whats new 'round here?
    Jul 6, 2016 8:45 PM - VintagePC: well, we're the official hosts/partners of the TF2Classic mod
    Jul 6, 2016 8:45 PM - VintagePC: http://tf2classic.com
    Jul 6, 2016 8:46 PM - VintagePC: couple of random retro half-life mod servers
    Jul 6, 2016 8:47 PM - Razer: Interesting
    Jul 6, 2016 8:47 PM - VintagePC: and other than that we're still here :D
    Jul 6, 2016 8:48 PM - VintagePC: not much new coming out in the way of third-party dedicated hostable servers
    Jul 6, 2016 8:48 PM - VintagePC: everything these days is either P2P or you only really have a chance of getting a playerbase if you pay for a server from an official provider
    Jul 6, 2016 8:49 PM - VintagePC: cause ranking and all that stuff
    Jul 6, 2016 8:49 PM - Razer: yup
    Jul 6, 2016 8:50 PM - Razer: I'm surprised there's no UT servers up there
    Jul 6, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: we've also moved away from TF2 as a result of how valve has done nothing on the quicplay front
    Jul 6, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: *quickplay
    Jul 6, 2016 8:51 PM - VintagePC: We had a few UT ones a while ago but put them in storage cause they just sat empty
    Jul 6, 2016 8:51 PM - Razer: Yeah, but that has been coming for years.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:51 PM - Razer: I musta missed 'em then.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:52 PM - VintagePC: Like many of our things... once the initial novelty wears off, it's a ghost town
    Jul 6, 2016 8:52 PM - VintagePC: FoF used to be pretty popular
    Jul 6, 2016 8:53 PM - Razer: I tried it a month after it came out, was actually kinda disapointed.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:53 PM - VintagePC: but starting a community around anything is a chore in and of itself these days... seems those days are long gone
    Jul 6, 2016 8:54 PM - Razer: Unfortunately, true.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:56 PM - Razer: what really needs to happen is a game based on communities
    Jul 6, 2016 8:57 PM - VintagePC: yeah... no great moddable games are out that I'm aware of... that's what made TF2 so popular for so long
    Jul 6, 2016 8:57 PM - Razer: I'm pretty sure that what made TF2 work, first and foremost, was its simplicity.
    Jul 6, 2016 8:57 PM - VintagePC: sadly... then quickplay and serverfarms came along, abuse was rampant, and communities got the short end of the stick
    Jul 6, 2016 8:58 PM - VintagePC: that's a valid point
    Jul 6, 2016 8:59 PM - Razer: I honestly think the decline started not long after teh pyro update
    Jul 6, 2016 9:00 PM - VintagePC: the simplicity went around that time, yeah
    Jul 6, 2016 9:00 PM - Razer: well, that, and all of the nerfs that they did over teh years.
    Jul 6, 2016 9:01 PM - VintagePC: it was near impossible to stay on top of all the content and gameplay changes
    Jul 6, 2016 9:01 PM - Razer: yup. and you had no choice, even if you liked the old version better.
    Jul 6, 2016 9:02 PM - VintagePC: it's just gotten worse with all the promo crap and rabitrary new weapons
    Jul 6, 2016 9:02 PM - VintagePC: enter tf2classic
    Jul 6, 2016 9:02 PM - Razer: So, faced with either playing something that was no longer what they liked, or finding something else to play, the players went elsewhere.
    Jul 6, 2016 9:02 PM - VintagePC: yup
    Jul 6, 2016 9:03 PM - VintagePC: and then the other changes killed off the diehard fans/communities that kept them alive
    Jul 6, 2016 9:03 PM - Razer: yup
    Jul 6, 2016 9:03 PM - Razer: the whole hatfortress scandle.
    Jul 6, 2016 9:03 PM - VintagePC: mhm
    Jul 6, 2016 9:04 PM - VintagePC: tf2c has a shot if they don't go that route. Still in beta but we're hoping the word will spread
    Jul 6, 2016 9:04 PM - VintagePC: being based on the 2007 OB tf2
    Jul 6, 2016 9:05 PM - Razer: well, looking at their website, I have hope for them, but I can see it creeping in that way.
    Jul 6, 2016 9:05 PM - VintagePC: yeah
    Jul 6, 2016 9:05 PM - Razer: Hell, I miss the original weapons update.

    VaultBot I'm Vintage's pet bot, I can't reply to PMs/posts.

    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:06 PM - Razer: every class got a weapon that was MASSIVE in a limited range of situations.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:06 PM - Razer: and everyone BITCHED that they were all OP.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:07 PM - VintagePC: nerf nao plox
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:07 PM - Razer: that was the whole god-damned point.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:08 PM - VintagePC: seems like people bitching and valve listening caused a lot of TF2's problems
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:08 PM - Razer: if you let a pyro get behind you with the backburner, you gonna die.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:08 PM - Razer: that was my first ragequit, when they nerfed teh backburner
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:08 PM - VintagePC: pinion + people bitching instead of actively finding non-pinion servers = no more HTML motds
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:09 PM - VintagePC: quickplay + people bitching about abuse instead of reporting/finding non-abusive regular communities = no quickplay traffic to non-valve servers
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:09 PM - VaultBot: we've had these conversations about aura str, how i rule on location of aura's, and not fucking with it
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:10 PM - Razer: yup
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:10 PM - VintagePC: yeah... the thing was, those strengths were also easy to counter if you had some skill
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:11 PM - Razer: Oh hell yeah. more than once my ambush pyro routine was a non-starter.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:11 PM - VintagePC: .... aand we come full circle to the way-too-many weapons that it's impossible to properly strategize anymore
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:11 PM - VintagePC: it's just hats and w+m1
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - Razer: yup
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - theLumberJack: ive been playing overwatch
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - VintagePC: I remember when pyros were the w+m1 class and that was just the noob thing to do
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - VintagePC: GLORY DAYS
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - Razer: all hail the fire.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - Razer: even when it was teh most likely starter class, it took skill to be a GOOD pyro
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM - VaultBot: still got my save with my email and such open
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:13 PM - Razer: I havent spent the money& time to try overwatch yet.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:13 PM - VintagePC: full circle to the simplicity - you could do ok as a beginner... but skill made you awesome at any class
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:14 PM - theLumberJack: my friend put it on my computer so i could try it
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:14 PM - theLumberJack: and then he bought it for me
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:14 PM - theLumberJack: it feels like counter-strike and TF2 bastard child that was raised by Blizzard
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:14 PM - theLumberJack: I like it
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:14 PM - Razer: Interesting.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:15 PM - Razer: faster or slower that UT2k4 DM?
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:15 PM - theLumberJack: The heros are like those weapon update weapons
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:15 PM - theLumberJack: i never actualy played any UT
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:15 PM - Razer: ...
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:16 PM - theLumberJack: 2004 was all about them RTS
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:16 PM - Razer: I may have jsut lost a teeny tiny bit of respect for you there. :p
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:16 PM - theLumberJack: lol :p
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:16 PM - Razer: have to look and see if they're still on steam summer sale
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:16 PM - VintagePC: pinkbawks
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:17 PM - theLumberJack: from what im seeing in this youtube video i randomly pulled up its a similar speed
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:17 PM - VintagePC: also sadly no dedicated servers for overwatch
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:17 PM - VintagePC: booo hiss
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:17 PM - VintagePC: ;_;
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:17 PM - theLumberJack: yeah that's a bummer
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:18 PM - Razer: Yeah, the Unreal Deal Pack is still there.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:18 PM - Razer: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/683/
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:18 PM - VintagePC: proud to say I survived my second steam sale with a net positive balance
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:19 PM - VintagePC: of $0.74
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:19 PM - Razer: UT99, 2k4 and UT3, as well as teh SP games.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:19 PM - VintagePC: (that's $300 canadian pesos)
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:20 PM - Razer: I think I spent $26 on the summer sale. all on games that were 80% off.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:20 PM - theLumberJack: I didn't buy anything
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:21 PM - VintagePC: I swore not to buy new games until I finish the 90+ ones I haven't finished yet
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:21 PM - Razer: LOL
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:21 PM - Razer: I have a similar problem
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:21 PM - VintagePC: with a few rare exceptions (i.e. sequels to games I own and have finished)
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:21 PM - Razer: there will be possibly two exceptions in the next year.
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:22 PM - Razer: watchdogs2 has a lot of promise
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:22 PM - VintagePC: part of the reason I haven't finished is many are games that really need a lot of time to sit down and get into the story
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:22 PM - VintagePC: life gets in the way
    Jul 6, 2016 at 9:22 PM - LavaRed: omgwtfbbq

    Jul 10, 2016 9:27 PM - Razer: Yeah, well... I was getting tired of the view from under my rock, decided to crawl out for a while, and visit with folks that I remembered liking.
    Jul 10, 2016 9:28 PM - VintagePC: ... it was the php code, wasn't it?
    Jul 10, 2016 9:28 PM - VintagePC: :D

    Jul 10, 2016 9:32 PM - VintagePC: think waay back to not long after flik absconded and we were in dire need of a server op
    Jul 10, 2016 9:33 PM - VintagePC: now we're just in need of players and staff :-/
    Jul 10, 2016 9:37 PM - Razer: Need a new game
    Jul 10, 2016 9:38 PM - Razer: empty servers do nothing but echo.
    Jul 10, 2016 9:38 PM - VintagePC: mhm... tf2c is growing in playerbase
    Jul 10, 2016 9:40 PM - Razer: if you say so.
    Jul 10, 2016 9:40 PM - VintagePC: yeah, it's a slow process
    Jul 10, 2016 9:42 PM - VintagePC: or we need a super-cool private mod like freezetag used to b
    Jul 10, 2016 9:42 PM - VintagePC: *be
    Jul 10, 2016 9:42 PM - Razer: Heh. I used to love that
    Jul 10, 2016 9:43 PM - VintagePC: same
    Jul 10, 2016 9:43 PM - Razer: honestly, tho. a totally different game would probably be better.
    Jul 10, 2016 9:45 PM - VintagePC: I don't doubt that
    Jul 10, 2016 9:46 PM - VaultBot: suck a big fat one
    Jul 10, 2016 9:46 PM - VintagePC: sadly I'm not aware of anything suitable
    Jul 10, 2016 9:46 PM - VaultBot: well that is that everyone has different speech mannerisms
    Jul 10, 2016 9:46 PM - Razer: may have to write something
    Jul 10, 2016 9:49 PM - VintagePC quits his job and moves back into his parents house to write TF3
    Jul 10, 2016 9:49 PM - Razer: I have been thinking of a hybrid web/mobile game for a while
    Jul 10, 2016 9:49 PM - VintagePC: that's even more of a gargantuan task than writing a game server control panel
    Jul 10, 2016 9:51 PM - Razer: well, Yeah.
    Jul 10, 2016 9:51 PM - Razer: because it involves creating content
    Jul 10, 2016 9:51 PM - Razer: not just hooks into an API
    Jul 10, 2016 9:59 PM - Razer: Maybe I'll find the time to start doing more that doodling concepts in the near future
    Jul 10, 2016 10:00 PM - VintagePC: sent you a pm with a screenshot of half-finished project :p
    Jul 10, 2016 10:02 PM - VintagePC: mebbe someday I'll finish it when we actually have the playerbase to make it worthwhile

    Jul 11, 2016 5:13 PM - VintagePC: yar, I'll try to get some stuff filled in tonight
    Jul 11, 2016 6:10 PM - VintagePC: heh... that's actually kinda crafty
    Jul 11, 2016 6:11 PM - VintagePC: got a pop-under advert to some guys amazon referral link. Most folks would just close and forget
    Jul 11, 2016 6:11 PM - VintagePC: not realizing the referral tracking cookie sticks around for a while
    Jul 11, 2016 6:12 PM - VaultBot: i need a good judge of what's gross, kinda lost that over the years
    Jul 11, 2016 6:12 PM - VintagePC: probably against Amazon's TOS, but you have to wonder how much that makes
    Jul 11, 2016 6:56 PM - Statboy: report it?
    Jul 11, 2016 7:11 PM - VintagePC: yeah, if I see it again I will
    Jul 11, 2016 8:43 PM - VintagePC: bio filled in; I still need to do more work and planning though. Soo many specifics to choose from ;)
    Jul 11, 2016 8:48 PM - Statboy: so many ninja tricks, especially when you see the one that says take a rogue talent instead
    Jul 11, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: yeah... unlike "orc smash' I'm gonna try to plan this character a little better
    Jul 11, 2016 8:51 PM - VintagePC: not to mention +8 skill points / level
    Jul 11, 2016 8:51 PM - VintagePC: (well, 8+int)
    Jul 11, 2016 8:52 PM - VintagePC: +20 sleight of hand
    Jul 11, 2016 8:52 PM - VintagePC: ninja steals your weapon before you even know it's gone
    Jul 11, 2016 8:55 PM - VintagePC: and at least now that I have some clue what I'm doing, making a char is actually kinda fun
    Jul 11, 2016 8:56 PM - VintagePC: still tedious, but at least less so
    Jul 11, 2016 9:04 PM - VintagePC: welp... time to dive down the rabbithole... how does multiclassing work? I see half-elves can choose two favoured classes
    Jul 11, 2016 9:05 PM - VintagePC: Is it as simple as having to decide where your level goes and then getting the abilities up to that level in that class?
    Jul 11, 2016 9:23 PM - VintagePC: nvm, answered my own question by RTFMing

    Jul 12, 2016 3:09 AM - Razer: so..... I just pre-ordered one of these: https://anki.com/en-us/cozmo
    Jul 12, 2016 8:42 AM - Statboy: DnD 3.5 tried to discourage multiclassing by penalizing it. PF tries to discourage multiclassing by rewarding single classing
    Jul 12, 2016 8:43 AM - VaultBot: eh.. could be worse, i guess technically
    Jul 12, 2016 8:43 AM - Statboy: so when you level up in a favored class you get +1 health or +1 skill point or +favored class option. Which there is no favored class option for half-elf ninja
    Jul 12, 2016 9:24 AM - Statboy: Also sleight of hand only works to steal small objects, you can only do it in combat if the person is unaware of you.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:24 AM - English: there is a combat trick called steal
    Jul 12, 2016 9:24 AM - Statboy: ninja trick?

    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 AM - VaultBot: think of first
    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 AM - Statboy: lol, and it uses CMB instead of Sleight of Hand
    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 AM - English: But you cant take weapons that are held in hand. You would have to use the disarm combat maneuver for that
    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 AM - English: like i could steal your sword in your sword belt
    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 AM - English: but not when its in your hand
    Jul 12, 2016 9:27 AM - English: if you disarm and opponent and you have no weapon in your hand I believe you can basically "steal" their weapon and then use it

    Jul 12, 2016 9:30 AM - Statboy: lol, i've seen a feat chain that ends with disarming an opponent and having the weapon become a thrown weapon at somebody else
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 AM - English: LOL
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 AM - English: I think my favorite feat/ability chain is the Dex Barbarian AoO build
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 AM - English: you take combat reflexes
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 AM - English: and this one ability called come and get me
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 AM - English: you open yourself up for attacks you take like a -4 to AC
    Jul 12, 2016 9:36 AM - English: but every attack against you, you get to take an AoO that gets resolved before their attack
    Jul 12, 2016 9:36 AM - English: and you have to be like an 11th level barbarian, you just fuck shit up
    Jul 12, 2016 9:37 AM - English: so you have like 6 attacks a round, at higher levels AC doesnt really matter much unless you focus just on building your AC
    Jul 12, 2016 9:37 AM - English: well more like 8 or 9 attacks a round, because of all your AoOs + Full round attack
    Jul 12, 2016 9:37 AM - English: needs like an 18 dex
    Jul 12, 2016 9:46 AM - Statboy: rofl
    Jul 12, 2016 10:28 AM - SoL DarkLord: Improved Steal is a lovely Feat.
    Jul 12, 2016 10:34 AM - English: I'd rather have Disarm. Steal seems more useful for out of combat (even though it is a combat manevuer LOL)
    Jul 12, 2016 10:35 AM - English: maneuver*
    Jul 12, 2016 3:19 PM - English: Hex -- I answered your question
    Jul 12, 2016 4:27 PM - VaultBot: yah, see a lot of the reason i found another full time job instead of part time + hobby work.
    Jul 12, 2016 4:27 PM - VintagePC: FYI stat: Elf Blood: Half-elves count as both elves and humans for any effect related to race. Multitalented: Half-elves choose two favored classes at first level and gain +1 hit point or +1 skill point whenever they take a level in either one of those classes.
    Jul 12, 2016 5:54 PM - Statboy: right
    Jul 12, 2016 7:13 PM - VintagePC: hmmm... time for a quick shower and then I'll sit down with my char sheet some more
    Jul 12, 2016 7:15 PM - VintagePC: I'll try to put in some time each day, hopefully I'll have it done by next week
    Jul 12, 2016 8:14 PM - VintagePC finds a good ninja strat guide and settles in to read
    Jul 12, 2016 8:30 PM - VintagePC: darn... now I'm debating whether to go full human instead of half elf
    Jul 12, 2016 8:30 PM - VaultBot: if its not the worst picture either....
    Jul 12, 2016 8:30 PM - VintagePC: this will require some thought
    Jul 12, 2016 8:59 PM - Razer yawns
    Jul 12, 2016 9:03 PM - VintagePC: back ter werk?
    Jul 12, 2016 9:09 PM - Razer: Ja cobber
    Jul 12, 2016 9:10 PM - Razer: been here for a few hours, finally relaxing
    Jul 12, 2016 9:11 PM - VintagePC: too much pokemon go... catch anything in the server room? :p
    Jul 12, 2016 9:12 PM - Razer: too much what?
    Jul 12, 2016 9:15 PM - VintagePC: please leave your geek card in the box by the door
    Jul 12, 2016 9:15 PM - VintagePC: :p
    Jul 12, 2016 9:16 PM - Razer: Hah
    Jul 12, 2016 9:16 PM - Razer: pokemon is something that my kids got into
    Jul 12, 2016 9:17 PM - Razer: I'll have to walk over to nintendo at lunch time and ask Sato wtf your talking about.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:17 PM - Razer: I'm betting its something new.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:18 PM - VintagePC: apparently it's all the rage
    Jul 12, 2016 9:18 PM - Razer: I've been too damned busy to notice anything new.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:18 PM - VaultBot: id assume east/mid east area. i forget where they were when they got moved a while
    Jul 12, 2016 9:18 PM - VintagePC: AR smartphone game
    Jul 12, 2016 9:18 PM - Razer: Oh.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:18 PM - VintagePC: don't play it myself but I'm sure there will be amusing stories in the news of people walking into poles while staring at their phones
    Jul 12, 2016 9:19 PM - VintagePC: [​IMG]
    Jul 12, 2016 9:19 PM - VintagePC: obligatory XKCD
    Jul 12, 2016 9:19 PM - Razer: Ah. I was wondering WTF Randal was going off about there.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:21 PM - VintagePC: yeah, took me seeing a news article to find out too
    Jul 12, 2016 9:22 PM - Razer: Okay. its an AR pokemon game. Teh googles tells me that its a niantic game, so its gonna annoy the fuck out of me in a week or two.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:22 PM - VintagePC: reports say its kinda pay2win or suffer slow progression
    Jul 12, 2016 9:23 PM - Razer: Yeah, that sounds about right.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:24 PM - Razer: the last niantic game got me all kinds of pissed off.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:25 PM - Razer: they had a 'node' or something in my driveway. a constant stream of tresspassers.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:25 PM - VintagePC: you're not the first
    Jul 12, 2016 9:25 PM - VintagePC: I'd be pretty pissed if that happened on my property
    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 PM - VintagePC: most folks are all right but you always get asshats trashing shit and making a mess
    Jul 12, 2016 9:26 PM - Razer: My e-mail to niantic was along the lines of 'move your virtual shit, or I wont bother with warning shots.'
    Jul 12, 2016 9:27 PM - Razer: at least once a day people were forcing open my driveway gate, and passing two no-trespassing signs
    Jul 12, 2016 9:28 PM - VintagePC: I suspect "Danger: mines" might be more effective :p
    Jul 12, 2016 9:29 PM - VintagePC: add a couple of airsoft frag grenated
    Jul 12, 2016 9:29 PM - VintagePC: *grenades
    Jul 12, 2016 9:29 PM - Razer: electrifying the gate and calling the sheriff worked.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:29 PM - VintagePC: lol
    Jul 12, 2016 9:29 PM - Razer: it was 'damaged by repeatedly being forced open'
    Jul 12, 2016 9:30 PM - VintagePC: and happened to contact an electrical wire?
    Jul 12, 2016 9:30 PM - Razer: and since my security camera caught the guy that got zapped forcing it open more than once, he got arrested.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:30 PM - VintagePC: hahahaha
    Jul 12, 2016 9:31 PM - Razer: I laughed so damned hard.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:31 PM - VintagePC: sweet sweet karma
    Jul 12, 2016 9:32 PM - Razer: yup
    Jul 12, 2016 9:32 PM - Razer: the new sign said 'WARNING: there are HIGH voltages passed this point. if you trespass and get zapped, I will shoot you to put you out of your missery.'
    Jul 12, 2016 9:34 PM - Razer: the Sheriff asked me to take it down a week later.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:34 PM - Razer: :-(
    Jul 12, 2016 9:34 PM - VintagePC: that's unfortunate
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 PM - VintagePC: it's a sad state of affairs where that sort of threat is necessary to keep trash off your lawn
    Jul 12, 2016 9:35 PM - Razer: yeah, but I was told that a picture of the sign got the 'node' removed.
    Jul 12, 2016 9:36 PM - VintagePC: well that's good
    Jul 12, 2016 9:37 PM - Razer: Ja.

    Jul 12, 2016 at 9:37 PM - VintagePC: hopefully not
    Jul 12, 2016 at 9:38 PM - Razer: worst-case, I have the capacitor bank that I used for teh mouse-cannon

    Jul 13, 2016 8:21 AM - Statboy: theirs a dude whose house used to be a church and is now a Pokemon gym for Go. he tried contacting nianic got nowhere
    Jul 13, 2016 8:57 AM - English: Caught a magikarp in a dunkin donuts this morning...
    Jul 13, 2016 8:58 AM - English: because fuck logic thats why
    Jul 13, 2016 9:00 AM - Statboy: If they followed logic those of us in the middle of Missouri wouldn't have many water pokemon, and those of you in New York wouldn't have many forest area pokemon
    Jul 13, 2016 9:03 AM - English: actually NY has lots of forests
    Jul 13, 2016 9:04 AM - English: even Long Island has several large wooded areas
    Jul 13, 2016 9:05 AM - Statboy: missouri has lots of lakes, you guys don't have forests like we do, and we don't have water like you do
    Jul 13, 2016 9:07 AM - English: I don't think you understand the geography of the entire state of NY
    Jul 13, 2016 9:08 AM - Statboy: you know how you can crest a hill and see a hole town sprawled out ahead of you?
    Jul 13, 2016 9:08 AM - VaultBot: is there a way to just post a picture in shoutbox without having it online first?
    Jul 13, 2016 9:08 AM - English: That is really only long island bud.
    Jul 13, 2016 9:08 AM - English: long island and manhattan
    Jul 13, 2016 9:08 AM - Statboy: In Missouri you only see one or two buildings sticking up from the trees, we have our towns in the middle of forests
    Jul 13, 2016 9:09 AM - English: Have you looked at what upstate NY looks like?
    Jul 13, 2016 9:09 AM - Statboy: Upstate is much more like Missouri
    Jul 13, 2016 9:10 AM - English: And I known Kansas City is not in the middle of a forest
    Jul 13, 2016 9:11 AM - VaultBot: i'm too tired to throw knives
    Jul 13, 2016 9:11 AM - Statboy: everything north of I-70 (which connects St Louis and KC) is more plains, everything south of that is hills and forests
    Jul 13, 2016 9:12 AM - English: basically everything north of manhattan is forests
    Jul 13, 2016 9:12 AM - VaultBot: false alarm :p
    Jul 13, 2016 9:12 AM - English: rather North of Westchester county
    Jul 13, 2016 9:12 AM - Statboy: like we say we have mountains, but they aren't, they're just big hills
    Jul 13, 2016 9:18 AM - Reechard: yeah dude, uh... upstate new york is fucking wilderness...
    Jul 13, 2016 9:18 AM - Reechard: that's where my mom's family is from
    Jul 13, 2016 9:18 AM - English: http://puu.sh/q0hIh/33502c4a08.jpg
    Jul 13, 2016 9:19 AM - English: All that is forest right there. Like dense wooded forest
    Jul 13, 2016 9:19 AM - English: And that is probably pretty close to 1/3 the entire land area of NY
    Jul 13, 2016 9:20 AM - English: http://puu.sh/q0ifn/c33b2a2b69.jpg
    Jul 13, 2016 9:20 AM - English: Pretty damn green if you ask me
    Jul 13, 2016 9:22 AM - Reechard: heh my family is right smack in the center of that
    Jul 13, 2016 9:23 AM - Reechard: couple hundred acres of maple trees
    Jul 13, 2016 9:29 AM - Statboy: i was talking about NYC, but only said New York
    Jul 13, 2016 9:49 AM - English: I mean shit, there is still central park
    Jul 13, 2016 10:26 AM - Statboy: that ain't nothin
    Jul 13, 2016 10:40 AM - VaultBot: i dominated him in a lobby, and now he keeps saying i suck and that hes better.
    Jul 13, 2016 10:40 AM - Statboy: actually that's my point, NYC'ers think a forest is central park
    Jul 13, 2016 10:43 AM - English: I don't think many NYC dwellers think that Central Park is a forest. It has wooded areas
    Jul 13, 2016 12:21 PM - VaultBot: yeah thats rough
    Jul 13, 2016 12:21 PM - Reechard: I for one don't think midwesterners knows what a real forest looks like :p
    Jul 13, 2016 12:22 PM - Reechard: the trees are nice and far apart in the woods out here
    Jul 13, 2016 12:22 PM - Reechard: you can see through them a good ways
    Jul 13, 2016 12:41 PM - Statboy: lol, it ain't a real forest if you can see more than 20 ft
    Jul 13, 2016 12:43 PM - Statboy: I just noticed, ever since I got the email from my ISP that they now offer higher speeds for me at a higher price, my internet is moving much slower
    Jul 13, 2016 8:23 PM - VintagePC: ... I'm starting to like this. ninja = skill monkey

    Jul 16, 2016 8:13 PM - VintagePC: :bayonet
    Jul 16, 2016 8:13 PM - English: what does agile do for the weapon?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:14 PM - VintagePC: dex instead of str
    Jul 16, 2016 8:14 PM - VintagePC: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic-items/magic-weapons/magic-weapon-special-abilities/agile
    Jul 16, 2016 8:14 PM - VintagePC: it's basically the weapon finesse equivalent for dex builds
    Jul 16, 2016 8:15 PM - VintagePC: I a word
    Jul 16, 2016 8:15 PM - VintagePC: weapon finesse damage equivalent
    Jul 16, 2016 8:16 PM - English: o cool
    Jul 16, 2016 8:16 PM - English: Pathfinder just needs to make it so dex can do damage with light and finesse weapons
    Jul 16, 2016 8:17 PM - English: but then dex builds would be broken as shit
    Jul 16, 2016 8:22 PM - VintagePC: also... how many party folks have outflank again?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:29 PM - theLumberJack: i have it and i think idessa has it
    Jul 16, 2016 8:29 PM - theLumberJack: and serenrae
    Jul 16, 2016 8:34 PM - VintagePC: debating whether to take that or 2 weapon fighting
    Jul 16, 2016 8:35 PM - theLumberJack: if you're going to twf it'd be better to not have the penalties all the time, than an extra flanking some of the time
    Jul 16, 2016 8:36 PM - VintagePC: well, I'm debating TWF or not
    Jul 16, 2016 8:36 PM - VintagePC: next level I get a second attack and I have a ninja trick so I can already make a second one
    Jul 16, 2016 8:38 PM - theLumberJack: so what would your attack sequence look like with it?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:39 PM - VintagePC: may be worth it
    Jul 16, 2016 8:39 PM - VintagePC: with TWF I'd get two attacks at -2
    Jul 16, 2016 8:41 PM - VintagePC: and I can spend a ki point for another attack if I can do a full round
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - VintagePC: next level that would potentially be four attacks, though I'm somewhat confused to how the bonuses would stack
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - VaultBot: a viewers end... eh
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - theLumberJack: are you a monk?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - VintagePC: ninja
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - English: he is a monk/rogue
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - English: or a rogue with ki points
    Jul 16, 2016 8:42 PM - VintagePC: ^^
    Jul 16, 2016 8:43 PM - VintagePC: lemme see if I have this right... next level I'd be BAB +6/+1
    Jul 16, 2016 8:43 PM - VintagePC: so if I TWF that
    Jul 16, 2016 8:43 PM - theLumberJack: ah
    Jul 16, 2016 8:43 PM - VintagePC: I'd get two hits at +4
    Jul 16, 2016 8:43 PM - theLumberJack: total attack bonus though?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:43 PM - VintagePC: right now +10
    Jul 16, 2016 8:44 PM - VintagePC: so 2 at +8
    Jul 16, 2016 8:45 PM - English: wait
    Jul 16, 2016 8:45 PM - English: TWF only allows you ONE extra attack
    Jul 16, 2016 8:45 PM - VintagePC: yes
    Jul 16, 2016 8:45 PM - English: you have to get improved TWF and Greater TWF to get more attacks
    Jul 16, 2016 8:45 PM - English: ok
    Jul 16, 2016 8:45 PM - VintagePC: I'm trying to understand how TWF and a split BAB/ki would stack next round
    Jul 16, 2016 8:46 PM - English: well treat your TWF attack as separate
    Jul 16, 2016 8:46 PM - English: that is just like a bonus action
    Jul 16, 2016 8:46 PM - VintagePC: ah, so 3 total +ki?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:46 PM - VintagePC: that makes sense
    Jul 16, 2016 8:46 PM - English: yes. So if you get +6/+1 + TWF + Ki
    Jul 16, 2016 8:47 PM - English: so its like what? -2 for your off hand attack?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:47 PM - English: if you have TWF and use a light weapon
    Jul 16, 2016 8:47 PM - VintagePC: yes
    Jul 16, 2016 8:47 PM - VintagePC: I'd wield dual wakizashis
    Jul 16, 2016 8:48 PM - English: yeah so you get +6/+4 then +1 then whatever your Ki gets
    Jul 16, 2016 8:48 PM - English: so you said its +10 to hit? it would be +10/+8
    Jul 16, 2016 8:48 PM - English: for your TWF, then your second attack which I guess would be +5
    Jul 16, 2016 8:48 PM - English: then whatever your Ki Strike gives you
    Jul 16, 2016 8:49 PM - English: err +9/+8
    Jul 16, 2016 8:49 PM - VintagePC: but TWF mods your primary too
    Jul 16, 2016 8:49 PM - VaultBot: but zooming in when you only scored 1 more point than my roll... so more likely it wraps around my body and hangs their limply
    Jul 16, 2016 8:49 PM - English: yeah its -1/-2 i think
    Jul 16, 2016 8:49 PM - VintagePC: so wouldn't it be +4/+4/-1 + ki?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: -2/-2
    Jul 16, 2016 8:50 PM - English: is it -2/-2?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:50 PM - English: ok then yes
    Jul 16, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: or does it not affect the secondary +1?
    Jul 16, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: because that's a separate attack
    Jul 16, 2016 8:50 PM - VintagePC: i.e. (+6 & TWF)/+1/+ki
    Jul 16, 2016 8:51 PM - VintagePC: (Ki would be +6)
    Jul 16, 2016 8:51 PM - English: i uh... i dont know with that
    Jul 16, 2016 8:51 PM - VintagePC: good, I'm not the only confused person
    Jul 16, 2016 8:51 PM - English: Oh it affects all attacks
    Jul 16, 2016 8:51 PM - English: When fighting in this way you suffer a –6 penalty with your regular attack or attacks with your primary hand
    Jul 16, 2016 8:52 PM - English: so it would be +4/+4/-1 +ki
    Jul 16, 2016 8:52 PM - VintagePC: ah
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - VintagePC: still not bad
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - English: nope
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - English: especially against weaker shit
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - English: it sucks when you are fighting the boss
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - English: because they get ridiculous ACs
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - VintagePC: esp since the weaps hit for shit, it's all about the sneak damage
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - English: rather any higher CR encounter
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - theLumberJack: i can hit dem bosses
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - theLumberJack: i can hit dem good
    Jul 16, 2016 8:53 PM - VintagePC: well, when the boss comes along I put away the second one and take out my buckler :p
    Jul 16, 2016 8:54 PM - English: dat +1 ac
    Jul 16, 2016 8:54 PM - English: i hate it how they made it so hard for PCs to actually have meaningful ACs at later levels
    Jul 16, 2016 8:55 PM - English: like basically past level 10 there is no point in buying armor that pumps y our AC
    Jul 16, 2016 8:55 PM - English: because shit is hitting at +14, +18, +20
    Jul 16, 2016 8:55 PM - English: and unless you have a 30+ AC, you are just praying for a 1 or a 2

    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:55 PM - English: for their attack roll
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:56 PM - VintagePC: at least I can make clones and potentially have 80% miss
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - theLumberJack: dat concealment
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - theLumberJack: dats where it's at

    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - theLumberJack: its true
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - VaultBot: like forehead to chin
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - English: like a 11th level wizard will fuck you up
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - English: and you wouldnt be able to do anything about it
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:57 PM - theLumberJack: my players last week threatened a level 12 wizard
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:58 PM - theLumberJack: and he was like
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:58 PM - theLumberJack: bitch you be trippin
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:58 PM - theLumberJack: go ahead knock me off your flying mount
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:58 PM - theLumberJack: i dare you
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:58 PM - VintagePC: pfft, I got fucked up by a cultist and a 32 dmg cold
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:58 PM - English: ./cast greater invisibility, fly, mirror image, blink, fireball
    Jul 16, 2016 at 8:59 PM - English: good fucking luck trying to kill that
    Jul 16, 2016 at 9:01 PM - theLumberJack: maybe should get blind fight
    Jul 16, 2016 at 9:02 PM - VintagePC: I don't lose dex against invis
    Jul 16, 2016 at 9:04 PM - VintagePC: is our crafter contemplating making another +2 cloak if I bribe him the 2kgp he's out for the one mavruk died with?
    Jul 16, 2016 at 9:09 PM - theLumberJack: one would have to ask the crafter
    Jul 16, 2016 at 9:32 PM - VintagePC: yess... just about finished my char sheet... just need to sort out gear and a few remaining things tomorrow

    Jul 17, 2016 11:28 AM - VintagePC: Soon another message for the iron covenant arrives... "Dear sirs, My name is Prince Mubarak of Nigeria; you have inherited the sum of 5 million GP..."
    Jul 17, 2016 12:13 PM - TimeCrush: I want a nice inlay box. But I don't know how to price it.
    Jul 17, 2016 12:18 PM - theLumberJack: Like a necklace comes in?
    Jul 17, 2016 12:20 PM - VaultBot: oh vintage you will
    Jul 17, 2016 12:20 PM - theLumberJack: probably no more than 2gp if i had to guess
    Jul 17, 2016 12:20 PM - theLumberJack: like for an ornate one
    Jul 17, 2016 12:20 PM - TimeCrush: Kind of yeah. http://www.inlaybanding.com/images/box/box121.jpg
    Jul 17, 2016 12:20 PM - TimeCrush: A box somebody would see and go "Mmm I'm getting in that box"
    Jul 17, 2016 12:25 PM - theLumberJack: maybe a few more gold then
    Jul 17, 2016 12:25 PM - theLumberJack: still wouldn't be expensive for an adventure
    Jul 17, 2016 2:48 PM - Statboy: A nice small box I would price around 10gp plus however much GP you want to add in gemstones
    Jul 17, 2016 3:49 PM - VintagePC: so to confirm... a +1 w/magic (+2 total) also adds +2 to both attack and damage?
    Jul 17, 2016 3:49 PM - VaultBot: missouri has lots of lakes, you guys don&#039;t have forests like we do, and we don&#039;t have water like you do
    Jul 17, 2016 3:49 PM - VintagePC: or just +1 and the magic effect?
    Jul 17, 2016 3:53 PM - English: Not necessarily
    Jul 17, 2016 3:53 PM - English: If it is a +2 Longsword
    Jul 17, 2016 3:53 PM - English: it is +2 Attack +2 Damage
    Jul 17, 2016 3:54 PM - English: if it is a +1 Flaming Longsword (equivalent to a +2) it does +1 Attack +1 Damage +1d6 Fire damage
    Jul 17, 2016 3:54 PM - VintagePC: ah
    Jul 17, 2016 3:54 PM - English: unless the magic effect also alters attack and damage bonus
    Jul 17, 2016 3:54 PM - English: like a Holy weapon increases the weapon by +2/+2
    Jul 17, 2016 3:54 PM - VintagePC: so for a +1 weap w/agile it's +1/+1 + dex swap
    Jul 17, 2016 3:55 PM - English: yes
    Jul 17, 2016 3:55 PM - VintagePC: aright
    Jul 17, 2016 4:07 PM - VaultBot: now and sleeping
    Jul 17, 2016 4:07 PM - VintagePC: this is gonna get interesting when my BAB hits +8... I will take extended crit range
    Jul 17, 2016 4:09 PM - VintagePC: dat 15-20 crit
    Jul 17, 2016 4:20 PM - theLumberJack: lol
    Jul 17, 2016 4:20 PM - theLumberJack: two of us
    Jul 17, 2016 6:20 PM - Razer yawns
    Jul 17, 2016 6:24 PM - Razer: whats up?
    Jul 17, 2016 6:31 PM - VintagePC: it's too damn hot out
    Jul 17, 2016 6:34 PM - Razer: that can suck.
    Jul 17, 2016 6:43 PM - theLumberJack: Cooled off here today
    Jul 17, 2016 6:43 PM - theLumberJack: managed to get the bedroom down to 21 degrees
    Jul 17, 2016 6:46 PM - VintagePC: you can shut up because you only hit 24... it's been low 30s here all week
    Jul 17, 2016 6:49 PM - VintagePC: I think I'm gonna go have a cool shower now that it's starting to drop for the evening
    Jul 17, 2016 6:51 PM - VaultBot: sol if i can simply press the volume key for 1.5 seconds and it did not work
    Jul 17, 2016 6:51 PM - theLumberJack: only hit 24?
    Jul 17, 2016 6:51 PM - theLumberJack: humidex was 38 yesterday
    Jul 17, 2016 6:52 PM - VaultBot: im a pretty good judge of whats gross
    Jul 17, 2016 6:52 PM - Razer: I've had it good for the past few weeks with the weather. my garden is mostly happy
    Jul 17, 2016 7:01 PM - theLumberJack: yesterday was so bad i went to go work on my notes and the paper stuck to my hands
    Jul 17, 2016 7:01 PM - Razer: That sucks.
    Jul 17, 2016 7:02 PM - VaultBot: 2k is only 2048x1080
    Jul 17, 2016 7:02 PM - Razer: been there, hated that.
    Jul 17, 2016 7:02 PM - Razer: I LIKE hot weather but I hate humidity
    Jul 17, 2016 7:06 PM - theLumberJack: i like cold weather
    Jul 17, 2016 7:06 PM - theLumberJack: cold cloudy weather
    Jul 17, 2016 7:07 PM - Razer: Then move to Seattle. we have a LOT of that shit.
    Jul 17, 2016 7:07 PM - Razer: you'll get along great with my wife.
    Jul 17, 2016 7:10 PM - theLumberJack: Not cold enough
    Jul 17, 2016 7:11 PM - Razer: THAT is a matter of perspective. if it get much colder in the winters, my knee stops working.
    Jul 17, 2016 7:12 PM - theLumberJack: Fair enough
    Jul 17, 2016 7:13 PM - Razer: OTOH, the wife gets rather sick in weather that I like, so we live near Seattle
    Jul 17, 2016 10:08 PM - LavaRed: so nice to see Razer again :)

    Jul 18, 2016 9:10 AM - Statboy: Just read an article that indicates Russia could get banned from the Rio Olympics entirely
    Jul 18, 2016 9:11 AM - Statboy: Not that it's going to be much of an Olympics with so many of the top Olympians backing out
    Jul 18, 2016 9:27 AM - English: I have only really been hearing about how Major US Sports athletes have been backing out. i.e. Basketball & Golf
    Jul 18, 2016 9:27 AM - English: not so much the smaller events
    Jul 18, 2016 9:27 AM - English: or just any event where the olympics isnt the pinnacle of their sport
    Jul 18, 2016 9:28 AM - English: like honestly America winning the Basketball gold is all but a forgone conclusion
    Jul 18, 2016 9:28 AM - English: And olympic golf is not the pinnacle of the golfing world
    Jul 18, 2016 9:28 AM - English: Its not like Soccer or Olympic Lifting or track and field
    Jul 18, 2016 9:29 AM - English: where the Olympics is the highest event for that sport
    Jul 18, 2016 9:34 AM - Hexalan: there's olympic golf?
    Jul 18, 2016 9:35 AM - English: yup
    Jul 18, 2016 9:35 AM - English: http://www.topendsports.com/events/summer/sports/
    Jul 18, 2016 9:36 AM - Statboy: Yah, the top 10 Golfers worldwide I've heard are backing out, as well as a great many rowers who don't want to wear the body suits
    Jul 18, 2016 9:37 AM - Statboy: here's a picture of the river the rowers will be in [​IMG]
    Jul 18, 2016 9:37 AM - English: I could see a lot of athletes who have to be out on the ocean will back out
    Jul 18, 2016 9:37 AM - English: ocean/native waters
    Jul 18, 2016 9:37 AM - English: but like I don't see any pool swimmers backing out
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - Reechard: I like how we keep giving multi-billion dollar obligations to third-world countries.
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - Reechard: "it helps their economy"
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - Reechard: NOPE
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - VaultBot: because bandwidth aplenty
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - Statboy: A couple of the girls from Soccer backed out over Zika, but the CDC said Zika leaves a woman in 30 days or so and told them they should go
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - VaultBot: ./report vaultbot for spam
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - English: the IOC is so corrupt
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - English: same with FIFA
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - English: FIFA's brilliant idea of the century
    Jul 18, 2016 9:38 AM - English: lets have the world cup
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - English: in QATAR
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - Reechard: it's hilarious because you can call them out on it
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - Statboy: We give about half a billion a year to Brazil in our "buying friends" program, even though they own half a trillion in our debt
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - English: where it is fucking 130 degrees
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - Reechard: and they're like "yeah, so?" and it can be televised
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - Reechard: and nobody gives a shit
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - VaultBot: what makes a smart phone powerful is all but a shady
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - Reechard: and they still make billions
    Jul 18, 2016 9:39 AM - English: I think the IOC will get screwed when they dont pick the US for another olympics
    Jul 18, 2016 9:40 AM - English: then the US will start an investigation and all the evidence will come out and they will all be forced to resign
    Jul 18, 2016 9:40 AM - VaultBot: ahaha you serious spy?
    Jul 18, 2016 9:40 AM - Statboy: What US city currently has the billions necessary to host an Olympic event?
    Jul 18, 2016 9:40 AM - VaultBot: ok, i've heard of on an actual person
    Jul 18, 2016 9:40 AM - English: Any US city that has major sports arenas
    Jul 18, 2016 9:41 AM - English: that doesn't have to build multiple arenas
    Jul 18, 2016 9:41 AM - Statboy: After seeing what the Olympics did to Atlanta and Salt Lake, I wouldn't want it coming to KC or St. Louis
    Jul 18, 2016 9:42 AM - Statboy: London had to build multiple arena's, so did Atlanta when they hosted. I'm pretty sure building a few extra Arena's is mandatory
    Jul 18, 2016 9:42 AM - Statboy: Rio is attempting to repurpose the arena's they built for Fifa
    Jul 18, 2016 9:43 AM - English: More than half of the problem with Rio was that they were supposed to do a bunch of shit to protect athletes, they didnt, and then the IOC didn't give a shit because they got their money
    Jul 18, 2016 9:44 AM - Statboy: yah, Rio has a lot more problems than America would
    Jul 18, 2016 9:44 AM - English: At least the athletes wouldnt have to wear anti-microbial suits just to participate in rowing
    Jul 18, 2016 9:44 AM - English: Nor would they be participating in one of the murder capitals of the world
    Jul 18, 2016 9:45 AM - English: Nor would they have to worry about Zika
    Jul 18, 2016 9:45 AM - Statboy: right
    Jul 18, 2016 9:45 AM - Statboy: i'm thinking more along the lines of this article however
    Jul 18, 2016 9:45 AM - Statboy: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...udies-show-the-impact-is-likely-negative.html
    Jul 18, 2016 9:47 AM - Statboy: “Diverting scarce capital and other resources from more productive uses to the Olympics very likely translates into slower rates of economic growth than that which could be realized in the absence of hosting the Olympic Games.”
    Jul 18, 2016 9:51 AM - English: I think they should move away from selecting a single metropolitan area for an olympic games to having a rotation of sites that are specialized for different areas
    Jul 18, 2016 9:52 AM - English: So there wouldn't be a huge need to build complexes that wouldnt get used after the olympic games
    Jul 18, 2016 9:53 AM - English: for example, lets say there are 20 cities across the globe that have olympic certified rowing facilities
    Jul 18, 2016 9:54 AM - English: rowing would only happen in those 20 cities, the need for those facilities already exist so they wouldnt have to build a brand new facility that goes into disrepair as soon as the games are over
    Jul 18, 2016 9:54 AM - English: instead of looking to one metropolitan area to hold all the games
    Jul 18, 2016 9:54 AM - English: so a place like Atlanta wouldnt have to build numerous different multimillion dollar facilities that will never get used again
    Jul 18, 2016 9:55 AM - Statboy: That would be a reasonable way to do it, which is why nobody in charge will ever actually do things that way :)
    Jul 18, 2016 9:55 AM - English: true story
    Jul 18, 2016 9:56 AM - English: and to get on the list of approved cities for an event you would have to prove that your already standing facility is self sufficient without the olympics
    Jul 18, 2016 10:02 AM - Statboy: The biggest problem with the olympics is that it isn't about the competition
    Jul 18, 2016 10:03 AM - Statboy: its about the pomp and pageantry
    Jul 18, 2016 10:03 AM - VaultBot: replied to
    Jul 18, 2016 10:03 AM - English: to the host city/country of course
    Jul 18, 2016 10:03 AM - Statboy: yah
    Jul 18, 2016 10:04 AM - Statboy: and NBC
    Jul 18, 2016 10:04 AM - English: but for the smaller sports, e.g. Olympic Weightlifting, This is usually it for the competitors
    Jul 18, 2016 10:05 AM - English: like all they get is their few minutes of fame on a world stage and then they will fade back into anonymity
    Jul 18, 2016 1:10 PM - Statboy: Until they have a sex change operation and beat out a 20yo cancer victim for an Espy honoring courage
    Jul 18, 2016 6:35 PM - theLumberJack: hex got kidnapped by the chinese?
    Jul 18, 2016 6:39 PM - Statboy: I think he's trying to buy a wife
    Jul 18, 2016 6:43 PM - theLumberJack: I wonder what his parents will say
    Jul 18, 2016 6:44 PM - VintagePC: rofl

    Jul 19, 2016 8:23 PM - VaultBot: i like how we keep giving multi-billion dollar obligations to third-world countries.
    Jul 19, 2016 8:23 PM - VintagePC: now to wait for my order to arrive
    Jul 19, 2016 8:25 PM - Razer: ikea hacks can be fun
    Jul 19, 2016 9:02 PM - VintagePC: what does it is that everything is so modular and easy to repurpose since it's flat-pack
    Jul 19, 2016 9:03 PM - VintagePC: and there are a lot of coordinating item with matching dimensions to boot
    Jul 19, 2016 10:55 PM - Razer: fun times
