it is a mildly entertaining incentive to get out of the house regularly

Round here we call that a job. (Though I do wish the entertainment aspect wasn't because laughing is preferable to crying. Undecided)


There has to be a way to run Android in a VM with fake GPS/sensors so I can write a script to play the game for me, without actually going anywhere.

I don't watch much any more but yeah - whether it's an episode every night or just as and when I feel like it, it's much more enjoyable and easier to get into compared to being drip-fed half an hour a week.

Hah, I remember when you could tell a text message was about to arrive because speakers would make a noise! Cheesy

I have external audio because the headphone jack broke and muted the internal audio - still was a long time of wiggling it just so to get a connection until I finally got it.

My next upgrade will probably be a new mouse - my Logitech G500s has started dropping connection momentarily then reverting to a different profile, and it's getting frequent enough to be a nuisance.

So is it actually more than a buggy version of Ingress for kids? Tongue

Personally I'd want to wait for the third book to come out - don't like waiting between books.

Never read Mistborn so can't agree or oppose that suggestion.

My main machine is six years old and still hanging in there. Hope it survives more than another three!

It's only a Core i7 2.8GHz (1st/2nd gen), but it's been upgraded to 12GB of DDR3 which requires quite an effort to use up. (Unlike on my work machine which only has 8GB and is a constant chore to keep below 7GB used!)

I do also have a Skylake i3 system with 16GB that I've been (slowly) getting setup with Arch Linux, which I'll use for development work once it's ready.

I'm not really sure what's so difficult about searching for "the best forum in the whole of space and time", but you got here and that's what matters.

You just run up a hill or something?

Got a bottle of water here if you need it... Tongue

What do you mean "yet"?! Angry

This place will never die - this current quiet period is merely due to preparing for the appropriate rituals with which it will achieve immortality...

Heh, so is that poking around with planes to make sure they don't go swimming?

I'm just doing the usual mashing keyboards to make computers do things, whilst cursing those who made the rubbish I have to work with.

Throw a coin in and make a wish?
12  BPSITE / BPSITE Headquarters / Re: Why Hello There on: March 02, 2014, 10:54:19 PM
Heh, well most is a slither better than all, which is what it appears to have been of late. Sad

Well you should be grateful you have thoughts that can echo.

Most days I find my brain stops working before I have a chance to set on anything useful. Sad

This place needs more people.  It's so empty I keep hearing my thoughts echo.  Shocked

:s I need a shower.
