@ctrlaltdog Strange thing: I'm typically anti-DLC, but think that Paradox and Colossal Order actually got the DLC pattern mostly right with C:SL.

Generally, it's a couple of major DLC a year, and Steam sales bend the pricing of all but the newest to a much more affordable band. The minor DLC aren't important, are easily skipped, and aren't missed.

It's kind of odd, now that I'm really thinking about it.

@kode54 I'm fairly laden with debt, and only went after this phone to resolve a handful of issues. That, and the cash price for the phone isn't so bad after the discounts.
Once I'm fully migrated over to this phone, I'll probably sell the old one to make back a chunk of what I spent tonight, to further offset my costs.

@kode54 I went from $40.75/mo unlimited talk and text with 3GB of high speed data, unlimited low speed, with carryover data to a $55/mo plan with 5GB plus unlimited low speed and carryover data. This also adds in a monthly device payment, not included in that number (about two bucks extra after the bill credit).

Well, I did the thing I didn't quite want to do: bought another Motorola phone. This time, the Z3, since I was considering migrating from prepaid to postpaid.

Now to go home, buy a new case, get my employee discount set up.

I'm not surprised at Tumblr's reveal that they want to put the clamps on adult content.

Imma just sit here with my personal domains and do my own thing.

Mayhap a resurgence in self hosting is on the horizon... :)

So, , I miss the days where things were sold through auction sites like FurBid and FurBuy.
It was easy to figure out who the heck was open for business because YOU DIDN'T POST THERE UNLESS YOU WERE WANTING MONEY FOR SERVICES.

It grates my nerves just a little bit when I see the occasional post here and there from artists lamenting that they don't have any customers.


I've hit a point where I just want to say to someone with a style I'm interested in, "Look, I have dead presidents to insert into my computer screen in trade for some art." -- this is harder than it needs to be because I'm stuck having to find journals and image posts that relay a status, and that's one person at a time for the bulk of the search.

This sucks. It's off-putting.
And it's keeping funds in my pocket that I would like to put in someone else's.

@staticsafe Bleh, Steam Link. Every time I've tried to use it, it's just a soggy mess, bogged down on the network. And the Steam Controller... I just need to throw the damn thing away.

I'll give Valve credit: They Tried, but god that controller isn't usable for much of anything.

That moment when the local FredMeyer really had everything you needed to work on a project. Got solder, heat shrink and zip ties. Now to go home and work on my battery.

An update on my desktop PC, AE-Ascenci: She's taken well to the new Windows install I had to do a few weeks back after a platter based HDD failure. (Read More) Show more

@Archaeomancer I like my bed. I downsized to a twin sized mattress because I sleep dead in the middle of the thing and don't roll around. Makes full sized beds pointless.
I also went to a foam mattress recently, and before that, a slatted bed system, so I actually have under-bed space to store things in. :)

I think my drive enclosure will arrive today. That will let me mount the old SSD externally, and get the new platter drive installed.
Then I'll pull all the old stuff off the SSD, wipe it, and see about dumping my movies onto it for the blu-ray player in the living room.
But for now, off to work.

It's been a week. Had a hard drive fully die on me Thursday. Money I wanted to put aside for a new e-bike was instead spent on replacement storage solutions. Oh well, guess I'll try again next check.

My aim is to have enough put aside by spring to buy a better bike.

@NinTheFolf Vitamin D does seem to have some pretty good benefits. I've been missing mine as of late, and I'm definitely feeling less me now that I'm thinking about it.
