Title: Random Stuff Part IV
Post by: Kuildeous on December 13, 2017, 02:23:23 pm
Since Part III has gotten too cumbersome to do a view all, and the weird bug of starting at the second new message has been happening for a while. I considered naming it Part IIII because I'm a monster.

Speaking of monsters, what monster would store a magic marker next to a dry-erase marker by the whiteboard? Fiends.

Roman numerals are fake numbers, they don't even have a zero.

I drew a picture, how do I upload it from my computer?
Title: Re: Random Stuff Part IV
Post by: Awaclus on December 14, 2017, 12:13:31 pm
I drew a picture, how do I upload it from my computer?

1. upload it somewhere, e.g. imgbb.com (https://imgbb.com/)
2. when you've uploaded the image, find the page with the original image in original size without any watermarks (on imgbb, you can do that by clicking the thumbnail)
3. when you have the original image open, right click on it and choose "copy image address" or equivalent
4. if you want to create a link (https://image.ibb.co/hVNE4m/800px_Claude_Monet_1899_Nadar_crop.jpg) to that image, use the url tags
5. if you want to post the image directly on the forums, use the img tags (and you can use the width parameter to make the picture smaller if that's necessary):
(https://image.ibb.co/hVNE4m/800px_Claude_Monet_1899_Nadar_crop.jpg)

You can quote this post to see how to use the aforementioned tags if that's unclear.

That's because you're not using the link to the image file, you're using a link to the web page that displays the image. In order to get the link to the picture, you actually need to right click on the picture and choose the option to copy the address of the image.

There was a discussion about typing speed in the previous thread. For reference, I got 104 WPM with my laptop's keyboard at the time (was probably the best result out of a few tries).

Since then, I have bought a gaming keyboard (Steelseries Apex 100 to be specific), and after about a month of getting used to it, I'm getting around 110-125 WPM now. In all fairness, my laptop's keyboard is particularly crappy, but it still goes to show that the gaming stuff is really nice to have even if you're not a gamer.
Title: Re: Random Stuff Part IV
Post by: silverspawn on December 27, 2017, 06:37:53 pm
I get 95 wpm with a terrible technique of using 6 or so fingers and jumping way too much. If I type properly with 10 fingers I get about thirty less. I still haven't managed to just make myself type with 10 fingers all the time and get used to it. I've been trying to do that years ago. I wish I could just make my keyboard give me an electric shock every time I do it differently... I'd probably get it right in a few weeks.

Today I took a different route while driving home to avoid a congested exit (well, I was also in the wrong lane and decided not to try and push over into congestion). I ended up on a magical journey around my part of the city during rush hour, in which I got to:

* Attempt to navigate home based on mostly unhelpful road signs that pointed to other cities rather than places in my city

* Do a ton of hill starts every 5 metres due to aforementioned congestion - which is great, since I needed to practice them anyway. I think I only stalled a single time, and it wasn't an issue whatsoever because of - you guessed it, congestion meaning I wouldn't have gotten anywhere anyway.

* Drive about 20 down down a 30 road that was a dual carriageway because I thought it was another road and was looking for the turn off I recognised and wasn't entirely convinced it was even a dual carriageway due to a tree line on the right blocking line of sight to the other carriageway.

All in all, it was... kinda fun I guess? I eventually found my way back to familiar territory, having spent maybe about 15 minutes extra driving.

Grammar nerd in me is sad. I requested a form element to be changed from "SOP's" to "SOPs." I've been informed that someone else created that element, and we're just reusing it rather than creating a new one.

Actually as far as I can tell his first two posts were to /in for Mafia games, although this is relevant:

do you know Tables? :P

No, but that name -was- the inspiration for my own.  I was reading the guild preview, saw his username, and decided if we had tables we must need chairs.

frick, I remember why I have so little ram. I used to have twice as much but one of the sockets seems to be broken so I removed one of two bars. And indeed, I just tried putting the one into the other socket and nothing worked...

so not only do I have to replace the RAM I have rather than adding to it, but I have to do a 1-bar setup.

I think it's probably been over a year since I played Dominion Online. Not because I think ShIT have done a bad job or anything, just... I've never really felt the urge to do so. It's kinda weird, in a way. I still play Dominion face to face occasionally, but I'm probably pretty mediocre at the game now due to lack of practice.

You could start with something like this.

A friend of mine is having dental work done on Valentines day. I need some good wisdom tooth related puns to annoy her with. Possibly to make into a faux valentines day card as well for extra amusement.

Back when I could afford to remove only one wisdom tooth, I was awake for the whole thing. It sounded horrible as the doctor broke the tooth. You could say that nobody deserves a break-up on Valentine's Day.

Probably unlikely your friend's getting gassed. Missed opportunity for saying she's left breathless (thanks, Futurama).

But if she's going under, then there could be puns about being swept off her feet or being dizzy.

And I would only recommend this if she has the darkest of humor since this is making light of a legitimate problem. Leave a card for her to wake up to with hearts on it and the caption, "Was it good for you?" Actually I feel bad suggesting that now, but I don't know how black your friend's humor is.

That last one is hilarious. Sadly I'm not actually going to be seeing her tomorrow, so a card for right after wouldn't work, but she'd definitely enjoy it (the card, that is) - plus as you say I don't think it's going to be a general anesthesia, just local.

Anyway, on more unrelated, random stuff notes, yesterday I watched part of an ISIS recruitment video (as part of training to prevent people being radicalised, just to clarify). It was REALLY not what I expected. Very ordinary looking (probably would be like PG13 if it was rated), with it's own catchy theme song they've written about joining a holy cause etc. Heck, even the guy doing the training said that they "sometimes find themselves singing it around the office". Note that I don't recommend trying to look up the video, unless you want to be on a list somewhere, plus you probably won't find it outside of the dark web.

I've also seen an ISIS recruitment video (as a part of being an edgelord on the Internet, just to clarify). Honestly they made it sound pretty appealing, it could have easily been an ad for a company that provides some sort of military-themed recreational activities.

Well yeah you don't radicalize people by screaming death to infidels or the holocaust was a hoax, you gotta put a nice face on it. And some production value doesn't hurt. Smile, be courteous, and offer something people feel they're missing. A sense of community, or validation, or even just a fun adventure.

I did the same thing, but with all three of my wisdom teeth.  (Fear of general anesthesia, and the gas sent me into a terrible panic, so local only.)  I actually thought the cracking and stuff was pretty cool!

I had six wisdom teeth! I had them put me under. Really don't think I could have handled being awake for that... I'm a weenie.

Aw man, one tooth was good enough for me to go through it with local. I did the other three when I had insurance, so I was able to afford going under. It was my first time experiencing a flexible needle though. I remarked on how I didn't even feel the prick, and he explained to me the new needles. Then he wiggled it around while the needle stayed in. That probably alarmed me most of all watching him wiggle the IV delivery shaft while experiencing no pain.

The future can be pretty awesome.

Another possible valentine wish for someone with wisdom teeth extracted could be, "Your mouth is full of cotton to soak up all that blood, and your face is so numb you can't feel how much drool you're dripping, but I would kiss you anyway, valentine."

Fun game about an AI taking over the world with a paperclip factory. (http://www.decisionproblem.com/paperclips/index2.html) Sort of like candybox but better.

That was pretty fun, took me 4-5 hours to complete.

Yeah, about the same for me. Lots of changing mechanics as the game went on.
