Title: Vacation/Limited Access announcements
Post by: Grujah on July 25, 2012, 08:12:06 pm
Because many players are in more than 1 game, so that they do not have to announce V/LA everywhere, they can do it here.

I will be V/LA most of tomorrow, Its Batman Marathon! (Begins, DK, and then to movies to see the new one.).

I did it in a town 300km away (I'm on the train back home now). Not really fair to vote me in every game for one short V/La during which I still get a few posts in and generally keep up. :(

Hey, here's a silly question.  What does V/LA mean?  I basically understand no acronyms ever, and often get confused by abbreviations. 
Sidenote: the abbreviation for Ambassador sucks; it doesn't even get split where the syllables split, that goes against all logic and some illogic as well.  Illogic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illogic)
Further sidenote: Tired Shraeye posts unreasonable posts
Further sidenote: Shraeye rhymes with croquet, parfait, and soirée.

Hey this is probably a really weird V/LA claim, but my mind is really fuzzy today.  I'm going to avoid reading/posting/responding to things until this clears up.  This is an actual thing, it's a focus-issue that I've had to deal with for a while.  I'm sure I'll be good tomorrow, but I'll take the V/LA off explicitly when I'm feeling better.

I intend to not be online much tomorrow (Thursday the 23rd).  I have a lot to do IRL and I am far too easily distracted.  I'll probably check in periodically but I will really try to not be around.

In fact, if you see me post somewhere, I would really appreciate it if you could tell me to go offline.  ::)

Gonna be away much of tomorrow. Parents had house broken into today - TV, iPad, and other minor electronics stolen.

I am starting rotations--which will go through March--on Monday. So I will be much less active in all games from now until March, I am hoping that we still have an active Mafia community into March.

I will likely always try to be in one game, but won't be posting nearly as often. I figured out how to send updates to my e-mail--which I can access and read at work--but can't access this site from work. So I'll be able to keep up with each game, but unable to actively post throughout the day.

I resent that. I'm active enough in every game I'm in to make up half the town. Can't slow ME down, nuh-uh. It's like Andy always said: "You either get busy playing, or you get busy dying". Now go /in! Or Host! Or something!

Im not going anywhere near the hydra, not sure why i'd want to share with someone else, that just means either have to play super serious all the time, or a lot of downtime!

The only one i see open is the switch one, which sounds a bit like a random mechanic which makes the game very based on luck

And there are about100 games in the queue to be hosted already...

I was going to post that I'll be V/LA today, but then I thought: Why bother? I'm only alive in one game now, and it's in night anyway. It's not as if my Resistance or CE games require V/LA announcements. So who cares? Therefore I've decided not to announce my V/LA, and instead you'll all just have to wonder where I am. So HA!

But yeah.  I'm without power for multiple days, which is terrific fun with a newborn and two other small kids.  Posting from work, which has power, but I'm only here a couple hours today.  Will likely be very scarce here AND in Quicktopics until power is restored at home, which could be upwards of a week.

I know, but people still cant seem to see that the games are filling up slower and the ones that are running are getting less and less input

Title: Re: Vacation/Limited Access announcements
Post by: Galzria on November 02, 2012, 11:49:08 am
I actually think it's detrimental to have rolling games - that is, it's better to run in blocks than always try and have active games running. You're right that it's killed off spectating, because as soon as people die, they're already playing in other games so don't get involved in the following of ones they're out of - which is sad because there's much to be learned from watching games continue to play out.

More than that however, when games end in blocks, it means a certain number of people will have been dead for some period of time, and they'll be chomping at the bit to get back in and going, creating a level of enthusiasm for the launch of new games - enthusiasm that's important for carrying a game through it's random stages and into the meat of it.

With the constant stream of games, you get people jumping for the excitement of PM's and opening flavour, but then they stall out and really drag. There a LOT of good, flavorful games waiting in the queue to get launched and played, but it's all incredibly overwhelming.

Games I'm in, or following (because I don't stop once I'm out):

M-XI, M-XIII, M-XIV, ZM3, RMM3, BM-VI

I've also got 8 QT's that I'm actively following or participating in across all those games.

And I love it, I really do - but part of the excitement of playing comes from the anticipation and build-up to new launches.

Well, that's how I feel anyway. And this is the wrong thread for this, but it's where the conversation is at. I understand the jam that launching 3 new games at once causes... But it seems to me the reason that happens is because there's genuine excitement to get in and get playing again - and that only comes from people having a little bit of down time every now and then where they're watching and waiting instead of constantly playing.

I'm not clear on the current state of things re: (1) how many games are up and running, and (2) how many games are in various stages of sign-up. 

Galz listed these games as currently running - is this all of them?
- M-XI  (Robz's ubergame)
- M-XIII  (Hydras)
- M-XIV  (Chicken mafia)
- ZM3  (Blitz)
- RMM3  (eHalc's role madness)
- BM-VI  (jo's bastard game)

Three "normal" games, one blitz, one role madness, one bastard.  Do people think this is too many games running at once?  Too few?  Just right?

How many games are currently in sign-up stages?

Title: Re: Vacation/Limited Access announcements
Post by: Captain_Frisk on November 02, 2012, 12:01:16 pm
The number of games is slightly high (but not unreasonable given that some of the games are near over)

I think we're skewing too far toward "strange" games though.  We only have 0 "normal" games out there. (Blitz and chicken are the closest)

Three "normal" games, one blitz, one role madness, one bastard.  Do people think this is too many games running at once?  Too few?  Just right?

How many games are currently in sign-up stages?



As someone said earlier, the problem is that even in the normal games, there is so much going on they are not just normal mafia. The expectation is these days that nobody gets VT it seems.

Also, the trouble is Galz, not everyone can follow as many games as you, but the excitement means that they still want to sign up to them all, if I had more time i know I would

But once the excitement of getting your Role PM is out of the way....well that gamesnot as interesting as the next game about to launch

In pretty much EVERY game now I am reading about policy lynching lurkers, instead of just policy lynching Morgrim for lurking!

I personally think that
One Large (13+)
One small  (9-12)
One Special game (RM/BM/BZ - Because RM and BM are roughly the same thing these days on here)
One Newbie game of 9 people. (or if there is no call for a newbie game at that time, another Special)

+Other games (Hanabi, CE, Resistance)

Would be perfect

With signs ups being opened when the previous one reaches Day 3 (Small size) Day 4 (Large Size)  and then launched after it finishes.

Real life gamers, including the famous theory and his lovely wife, in for the weekend, and I wouldn't be rude and play forum mafia while he's here.  Off the grid in 2 hours.

Of course, I will lurk because I can't resist.

I'm not clear on the current state of things re: (1) how many games are up and running, and (2) how many games are in various stages of sign-up. 

Galz listed these games as currently running - is this all of them?
- M-XI  (Robz's ubergame)
- M-XIII  (Hydras)
- M-XIV  (Chicken mafia)
- ZM3  (Blitz)
- RMM3  (eHalc's role madness)
- BM-VI  (jo's bastard game)

Three "normal" games, one blitz, one role madness, one bastard.  Do people think this is too many games running at once?  Too few?  Just right?

How many games are currently in sign-up stages?
This feels like a lot of games to me.  It probably doesn't help that, like Galz, I follow every one (well, I follow BMVI like i do all games after I die; the others i'm still playing)

Title: Re: Vacation/Limited Access announcements
Post by: Archetype on November 03, 2012, 03:39:02 pm
I think that's right amount.

In sign-ups:
Insom's (normal)
Voltgloss' (RMM)
Mine (I guess RMM)
yuma (normal, but a lot of power roles)
Ozle's (As a co-mod, I have to say, this one's...hard to classify. But I guess normal.

Morgrim says he has a good idea for a BM game. ashersky has something in the works.

One of the normal signup games should start near the end of Jorbles'
Volt's or I's could come at the end of eHalc's.
Either Morgrim's (if it is ready) or a newbie friendly game can come after jo's.
At the end of Blitz, Ozle's could probably start (if signups are complete).
Another game (normal-ish) could begin at the end of Hydras! (though I have a feeling this might take awhile).

Robz's game is seemingly never ending, but a Blitz game after it would be a nice change of pace.

Just my musings/2-cents.

Realized I posted my V/LA in the wrong thread... sorry about that.

I am back to pretty much normal mode, but will have funeral services Friday night and Saturday, so my usual activity on those days will be limited. Other than that I will be back to my ~ 4-9 pm availability.

Thanks for all of the support guys. Reading over the forums, especially the crazy Blitz 3 ending was exactly what I needed to add a smile to my face. It is nice to know that this community is more than just a group of people who play mafia, but more of a network of friends who play mafia.

Did you have so much fun reporting on the election? In 2008 I was reporting from the McCain watch party and really enjoyed it. The food was great, the atmosphere was crazy--and then intensely sober after he lost--and I think the highlight was seeing some of the foreign journalists play loud music and dance ontop of tables after it was announced that Obama won.

I think by that point there's almost a sense of relief that it's drawing to a close and everything is in wrap up mode. I mean, there's a TON of energy throughout the night (and after 21 straight hours of coverage and reporting you feed off that),  but at the same time you're just fighting the exhaustion that is setting in from the months upon months of reporting.

What particularly grates me (and I understand all the various reasons WHY), is that from our standpoint we know where the election is headed well before we can release official results. Even once polls close, we have a solid idea of how the swing states are going to fall. But from a producer's standpoint, we're not allowed to say, and so must continue to report "All the states that we said to watch over the past weeks now have their polls closed. As you might expect however, it's to close for us to call quite yet." What that really translates into is: "We know, but we won't tell you".

Anyway, it's always fun in retrospect, which is why I do this. But it's 48 hours of non-stop craziness that really drains you.

Was joke. (Sort of. He did apparently call 50/50 states correctly this election - has Florida been called for Obama yet?)

He can still do better. With Puerto Rico apparently wanting statehood now, maybe he'll get a chance to go 51/51 soon ;)

(Yes, I know that he was merely the most prominent of the aggregator stats people and there were a few others who did just as well or better whose names I don't remember. But the Nate Silver jokes took over my newsfeeds, and I feel compelled to pass them on. )

I'm now a week into my new job, which is my first full-time reporting job, and I have to say I love it. What a great career is journalism.

The only political coverage I've done was the NY AG race in 2010, covering it for grad school. It was pretty intense, though. I can see the appeal.

Reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated!!

Although seriously, had some pretty bad stuff happen a short while ago that necessitated my lack of time for all non-essential things. Its partly solved now, but will never not be solved. (Like that damned Rubix cube, that will never be solved...NEVER I TELL YOU!)

And on a separate note, my pc blew up.

Still, to better news, got a promotion at work, yay.

Although all this means although I am now back, a lot less time will be spent here I am afraid (Stop cheering at the back over there!) Only really evenings and weekends.

its a super weird issue. basically, i bought a new keyboard like 2 months ago, it worked fine, then randomly just started being super unreliable (not responding basically, felt like it's batteries were running out). I didn't like the feel of it anyways, so bought a new (and different) one. Was super good, until now, like a month or two later, I HAVE THE EXACT SAME ISSUE ON A DIFFERENT KEYBOARD. Yeah it's probably not the keyboard then but something else, I don't know.. Stealing batteries from tv's remote feels to help, but the thing is it has been random whether it works or not this entire time so cant really be sure. Like now, this post it has worked just normally.. maybe i fixed it!

Just to reiterate. Going to a big huge ridiculous work conference from Sunday afternoon to Wednesday night. I will have literally zero access, except maybe on the train. Ok, maybe in the evenings at the hotel room, but it's going to be nuts so best y'all don't count on seeing me at all.

I am back in town and more frequently available, although I am still unwinding.

My forum profile pic is a shot of Half-Dome, taken from the top of Yosemite Falls (6th tallest in the world, tallest in North America), for anybody that is curious.

I have not received role PM's for the following games:

BM lolcats
RMM Pokemon

I will be V/LA Monday the 10th through friday the 15th for an impromptu vacation to San Diego. I am not sure if the place I am staying will have internet access or not. I am hoping it does.

If it does I will be on once a night at least to moderate (Galz will also be kindly filling in for me in MXVI) and to post in all the games I am in, but don't expect a lot of content from me during those days.

You'll need a second map, or else you're gonna fail. Plus, you should probably trash some of the Junk filling your attic. I hear the Church is taking donations - maybe stop by the Chapel on your way out?

Just a reminder. I will be VLA starting this evening through Saturday. I am headed to California and I am not sure if the condo we are staying at will have Internet access or not. If it does I will only be getting online once a day--most likely in the evening--to do a quick read of all games and quick posts--and moderating MXVI. Galz will also be helping out with MXVI and is given full discretion for rulings.

If there is no Internet, well then, you just won't hear from me until Saturday.

I'm not in Buffy, so I mayyy be able to sub in. I'll have to reread everything though.

I'll let you know if I'm available ashersky. I should be able to sub in on Saturday.

Thanks.  Just made Robz do it, since he'd been following anyway.

Just a reminder from me that starting tomorrow I will be returning to my schedule of rotations in the morning to midafternoon, work after that and then home by ~ 4 or 5 my time to eat/study/spend time with wife/play mafia. Again, I have set up my account so that new posts to the thread are e-mailed to me, so I will be able to keep up with new posts from work, but won't be able to post myself until I get home.

For all my games:

- Pandemic III
- Diplomacy 2
- Small World I
- 7 Wonders I

Due to our current home situation (just moved, 4 months old baby) my time is limited. Also I am on central European time so if there are a lot of Americans our schedules may not have much overlap.

The most time I have is after the baby is asleep which is around 8 PM CET until I go to bed which to be honest isn't that much later. Other than that I can sometimes take a look if the baby is napping during day time or when I'm at work and work is a bit slot.

So if you guys are waiting for me, please keep this in mind, I'll play my turn as soon as I'm able.

I told my girlfriend that Eevee, my Forum friend from Finland, was coming to visit me this week.

She was like, "You've never met him? Is he going to murder you?"

I answered: "Only if he's mafia!"

If he does turn up and actually murder you now we'll look back on this post and laugh at the irony!

After first Volt and then Galz, and then Robz not playing a game (!) I'm loathe to add to the general spirit of vets jumping ship/backing down.  But it was bound to happen. All games have diminishing returns when you play them too much.

In any event, when the games I'm in currently conclude, I will be taking a mafia hiatus indefinitely. I'll still be around the site, we're all still friends.

This isn't so much a limited access announcement as a reduced access announcement. I'm starting back at uni tomorrow and I know I'm going to need to devote a lot of time to study if I'm going to keep up, and I'll also still be working, which means I'm going to have to cut down on time spent here. I'll continue playing all the games I'm currently in, and I'm still super keen to play Robz' game and LOTR, but other than those I'm probably not going to be joining any more new games for a while. Hopefully those will be finished or finishing by the time exams come around in Juneish. I'm optimistically hoping I'll still be able to contribute an appropriate amount, but please bear with me if I become a little snowed under by study and work commitments.

C'mon people, get with the program! You guys kick off the F1 Season down there in Melbourne! It's not THAT far away from wherever you're living (Ok, maybe if you're in Darby or Perth).

It's going to be so loud around here. I work in a hotel right next to Albert Park where the Grand Prix is held, and talking to guests is going to be a nightmare. A lot of the rooms in the hotel have a decent view of the race. I'm not particularly into car racing, but I will be working over the weekend so there's that.

Goodness who knows? It was originally on for this year, then canned mid-season last year, then reset for being ready 2014, then off again... :rolleyes:

I think a street circuit there would be awesome, but they really gotta get their plans straightened out.

That said, it's quite possible that Hurricane Sandy had some impact on their plans to build this. I'm not sure.

--- All I know watching P1 last night is that it's going to be a pain to tell Rosberg and Hamilton apart. Who's bright idea was it to put both boys in Yellow helmets? Spotting the T-bar difference will be annoying. Although credit Hamilton, he looked good in the Silver Arrow.

Ferrari looks to be fast this season though. They'll put up a real fight for the Constructors, and they'll run away with it if Red Bull continues to have reliability issues (which it sounds like may indeed be the case)... McClaren will be good... But I don't think Button/Perez are really going to be able to consistently put the car up with Ferrari and Red Bull.

I am not going to be on very much for about the next week and toward the end may not be on at all. We just signed a new lease on an apartment and will be moving next Saturday, so in the meantime I will be busy packing and studying for my certification tests coming up. I will still be on daily, but not for lengthy periods of time.

As for when we actually move, it will probably take a few days to get the internet up and running, so I may be in the dark for a bit then.

We just bought a house.  We'll be spending much time over the next couple weeks getting it ready to move in...which means my free time will be limited somewhat.  I'm not sure exactly what the impact will be (generally my weekends will be booked, but things move pretty slowly over weekends anyways).

I do. AT&T park was built the year I moved here, and it's such a gorgeous park that it's hard not to like them. Especially coming from a town that has such a deep history with the game. And honestly, the history of the Giants as a franchise is equally as enthralling.

That said, Wrigley will always hold a special place in my heart. I love the Cubbies. I'd love to see them break their curse. Just not at the direct expense of my Giants. ;)

Oh no, the Stick had horrendous wind. Freezing nights, and balls that drifted wherever they damn well pleased. It was not a joyous stadium. The 49ers are still there (for 1 more year), and then they'll be gone as well (to their new stadium, about a 15 minute jog from my house).

Too bad the Reds were expelled in 1880 for daring to play Sunday baseball. :)

That happens to be the same year the original Giants team, in it's infancy was created, although it was a minor league affiliation until 1882, joining the "bigs" in '83 as the New York Gothams (and is there a cooler name than that? Seriously?).

I can clarify my defensiveness right now. I'm 19 and playing a game with my brothers friends, something I have always wanted to do, I like my brother and his friends quite a bit. So if I think your misconstruing defensiveness as nervousness because i'm just that, nervous about being liked and accepted by all of you.

I am Robz888's younger brother. I live in east Lansing Michigan and am turning 21 in 29 days. This is true despite my claim of being 19 in my first ever mafia game. I actually said it mistakenly while explaining that I was young and innocently nervous, hence my scummynes(i was scum) I have never been so scared that robz would realize I lied about my age and call me out on it, then I couldn't decide if me correcting myself would be scummy anyway and decided to leave it. Luckily robz is a horrible person and didn't realize I'm not 19(just distracting from the fact that me forgetting how old I am is waaay more embarrassing)

The same way you cannot talk about ongoing games in other threads I request this thread be a neutral thread free from scum or town thoughts. So if you want to ingame lie about "being busy" that's fine but announcing a v/la should be true and have nothing to do with being scum or town in a game.

We had this debate ages ago, and at the time we decided to side with and accept the integrity of the players. If someone says they are V/LA, then that needs to be respected. Many of us will go V/LA but still try and get on when we can - and that's great - but it should never be a requirement that they do, and it really shouldn't be questionable either on in-game grounds.

A V/LA statement here is a VERY different thing then "I'm going out to a bar for the night with friends" in-thread. Posted here, I won't question it. Posted in thread, I'll accept it, but might see it as scummy behavior. But a player that posts in this thread that they won't be available is asking for a certain amount of respect from me - and it's the same respect I expect them to have in not abusing my trust.

The entire system of PbF gaming works a whole lot better if we maintain this integrity as individuals, and respect as players.

But starting around June I will be switching to a 7on/7off schedule where I will be working a 70 hour week in 7 days followed by 7 days of no work. This will make my availability a little bit unpredictable if you dont' know what week I am currently on, but I'll try to keep people posted of my schedule in the games I am in.

So I start my first full-time job on Tuesday meaning my schedule won't be as flexible and my f.ds time will decrease. I will be training for a few months from ~ 10-6 forum time.

But starting around June I will be switching to a 7on/7off schedule where I will be working 70 hour days for 7 days followed by 7 days of no work. This will make my availability a little bit unpredictable if you dont' know what week I am currently on, but I'll try to keep people posted of my schedule in the games I am in.

70 hours in one day?!?  Man, that must be a tough job...

Dsell asked me to post and let everyone know that he's on a trip and is having much spottier internet access than he thought he would, but that he'll post as soon as he gets a chance. He'll be back to regular internet access by next Wednesday at the latest.

I'm going to be ridiculously busy until next week. I'll still be here, but I'll only really have time to drop in and make a few short posts.

Just finished swimming, need to hit up lunch and library, and then I'm coaching a game tonight.
Tomorrow I've got a dentist appointment in the morning, and I'm going to a Baseball game in the afternoon before going out to dinner with friends at night.
Friday I'll be spending half the day at a dance competition before coaching a practice.
Saturday is another game (although I'll be "free" in the evening).
Sunday I've got a practice to coach, triathlon to compete in, and then dinner with friends again.

Monday is a long ways off...

Dear F.DS Mafia team,

You guys may have noticed I have not been around lately so much. I am not dead or ill or in dire straights. Mainly, my personal and professional life has lately become too crazy for me to participate in forum games. I actually haven't even played Dominion in a very long time -- I never really made the switch to Goko and by the time isotropic finally shut its doors, I was already starting to wane on the game. I imagine I will get back into the game a bit when Guilds surfaces, but who knows?

I hate goodbyes, but I hate sudden disappearances more. I won't be deleting my account, and personal messages will still reach me at my email if anyone needs me (including if you're going to be in Cambridge, MA and want to hang out) but I won't be here or checking things. You all have been crazy fun to hang out with and I hope later on in my life I'll have the chance to play games with you all again. This community is one of the coolest online things I've ever been a part of. Keep being cool and playing games.

All the best,
Jotheonah

Just posting this here, my availability has gone to about 2hrs a day during weekdays(enough time after work without running into personal free time) and double that on weekends(housework doesn't quite go as long as real work) but yea this is down from the probably 6 hours I spent on forums previously so expect less commitments from me for awhile.

That is a huge stretch of time. Hope it is for something fun! But unfortunately you will probably have to /out of all of them unless the mod can basically guarantee that the game will be finished by then. Lame I know... but hopefully there will be games waiting for you when you get back that will be just as awesome!

They're all real man. Like, man, we never landed on the moon. I've got a friend of a friend who says his dad's best bud from college saw the astronauts leaving LA the day after the landing was staged! And Elvis man, he's still alive and kicking! He was getting so many threats that the government put him into an undercover program! He works at a McDonalds in Oklahoma now! And dude, like, you know we have real life Aliens, right? I've seen 3 different UFO's myself! The government just doesn't want anybody knowing that we're collecting their technology! Oh, man, and did I like, ever tell you how they staged the Kennedy Assassination? It was all for political power man. And oh man, don't even get me started on the crazy things our Government spies on us over! Man, did you know they have a giant database that records ever phone call we make, and every website we visit. There's a file somewhere with your name on it man! They know every detail of your life, man!

Most games technically have a 48-hour posting rule.

If you went VLA 48 hours before lynch, then 48 night, then first 48 hours of the next day, you'd probably be okay.

So looks like I will actually be VLA kinda unexpectedly starting Sunday for a whole week. We weren't planning on taking a vacation but my in-laws invited us to go with them and can't turn that down.

I realize I am in the middle of modding a game and as such I will be doing two things. 1. having mail-mi continue to look over vote counts. 2. giving probably mail-mi and maybe Robz (if they are willing) my phone number so they can text me and let me know when a thread needs to be locked and flips given (I will have internet at the vacation spot but I have to make kinda a trek to access it).

Hopefully my being gone won't be too big of a hinderance to the game.

Also might as well note this (http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=8874.new#new) will also probably affect my mafia play a bit. I think both theorel and voltgloss were active during similar life events and it decreased their participation, but they were still able to play. I'll be playing it by ear up until then. So apologies in advance if I am not as active as I once was.

I do. He was on a 50 mile backpacking trip. One hiker got lost and got a ride home by some woman (he came back the next day.) Another hiker got heat stroke and started saying that all flies were government spies. A guy on a motorcycle named Bean took him home.

You're all correct, it's like the battery! Its similarity to diesel has led me to use that name for a variety of things, but diesel was already taken on iso. Diesel also has the nice connection with engines and I fancy myself an engine player.

I don't mind low-stress interactions from time to time. I consider you all friends and it doesn't hurt to have some basis for that friendship besides betrayal and distrust. :P

On that note, is it wrong that when I say "yuma" I switch into a deep, growling voice and say "yummy"?

hey... as long as you get my gender right I don't mind. I was surprised at how many people thought it was a feminine avatar name (and some still do who are new to the forums).

I always thought male, but mainly because the picture looks like a man in a nice tux leaning back up top, while holding a scotch in his hand in the bottom, with "Science" tying them together, like saying "Science: Stay classy".

Now, it's nothing of the sort of course. But that was always the mental image I've associated with you. And even though I know what your picture really is, and I've seen what YOU actually look like, that's still the mental image I naturally have.

Names that I know I pronounce wrong in my head but have no intention of trying to change:

ashersky
sudgy
Dsell
Grujah

Interesting! How do you pronounce Dsell?

It's meant to be 'diesel' right? I say Dee-sell.

I also say Dee-Sell.  I mispronounce sudgy, too.

How can you mess up Grujah?

I think the 'j' is pronounced as a 'y'.

I always said GROO-HAH. Like it was a spanish name. Or perhaps "SHARK BAIT GROO-HAH-HAH."

Yeah, it's the second one.

Interesting seeing how you guys pronounce my name.  It's hard for me to write how I pronounce it.  In particular I'm not sure how to write the e...
it's something like
thay-Orl
where the th is soft (like theory).  The ay is the closest sound I can think of to it, but it's kind of between that and a short e if that makes any sense.

as for the rest of you, I'm aware of several that are wrong, but this is how I pronounce them...

Also, I just memorized the letters in zxcvbn and just spouted them all off whenever I saw his name. I think it helps that I've used "dasmrh" as a screen name many times before. (You're welcome)

I just found out it's going to be awesome weather (plus), but that they have their own currency (minus), so I know quite little of the place. Our hotel promises internet so I should be on at least twice a day (before going to sleeps and after waking up), catching up with all of my games, which would be more than my recent activity has been at home, but you know. I'm coming back on friday.

I'll be flying out Wednesday morning to GenCon. While I won't be completely away from the internet, there are good odds that I won't be able to devote as much time to my games as normal.

So we'll be in a tent in the backyard.

Yeah... that would probably be a good idea.

I watch a million shows though. I could do Lost-themed mafia, Fringe-themed mafia, Avatar: The Last Airbender and the Legend of Korra-themed mafia, Mad Men-themed mafia, Arrested Development-themed mafia... I could do Food Network's Chopped-themed mafia.

I'm a petty big Stephen King fan, although I haven't read even close to all its stuff.

I actually started Under the Dome and then put it down after like 100 pages. That was a couple summers ago. I caught an episode or two of the show.

I loved The Stand, Everything's Eventual, and The Dark Tower series.

Oh man!  You have to, have to, have to pick it up again.  It will suck you in, I promise.  I'm on book 5 (I think...) of the Dark Tower series.  'Salem's Lot is by far my favorite though and still scares the pants off me every time I read it.  Cell is great, Desperation is great, Lisey's Story, Rose Madder, Four Past Midnight, Night Shift, Nightmares and Dreamscapes...really haven't found anything I don't like yet :)

I hear you even though I got tired of how Jordan was unable to wrap anything up without starting a dozen new plotlines.

I have a jam-packed week ahead of me, so just be patient if you're waiting on for PMs, QTs, games, etc.

The reason: I am moving back to Michigan on Wednesday!

Why don't you just buy the jam when you get to Michigan?

Before you write a report or something, you should note the difference between "maternal" and "paternal".  Unless you've been a lady all along?

(Also, when referring to the leave you get off a job or something, it's called "maternity/paternity leave". :P )

I think some of you know this already, but I've moved into a new place.  I didn't anticipate this to significantly impact my internet downtime for any length of time, but the downside to getting Google Fiber is that they take goddamn forever to call you to set up installation (I've been signed up for a week with no call so far, and it took a week before that for them to get the old account-holder for my apartment unsubbed).  I'm hoping that I hear something this week, because I really don't want to sign up for Time Warner (but I really need Internet before December).

Luckily there aren't any games starting for me, and I'll for sure be able to match the commitment requirements of BM14, but if the only place with internet for me is going to be the hotel, I might need to work something out with the mods of GoT / Toy Story / Survivor (unless I die or get voted out before that). I guess I'll know more once I get there, I have no idea what my days are going to look like yet, but I expect getting to the internet or having time to post won't be very frequent. Unfortunateness.

you went beyond my vocabulary!  I know kai means open, depending on the tone you are using of course.  I don't know lan.  wo bu zhidao ni shuo shenma.

or maybe kai lan  was Japanese?  The most useful Japanese words I have learned are sunimasem and wakarimasen.

I've had a very board-gamey Christmas. I finally got my train-addicted father into Ticket to Ride. As gifts go, it was something of a slam dunk. And of course, lots of Dixit (my mother's present from LAST Christmas). We actually played Dixit Odyssey with 11 people, as the box says you theoretically can.

I did. I think it was ok. I like how going for Family Growth is not a no-brainer like in Agricola, because it will make your Fighters take their turns later. Also it's not quite as tight as Agricola.
However, the part I liked most about Agricola has been removed: The cards. Instead of having occupations and minor improvements, you have rooms that are the same in every game and available to everyone. Part of what makes Agricola special is that you have to assess what the best strategy will be based on the cards you have, whereas in Caverna, the possibilities you have are always the same (though there are still many different strategical possibilites). I think that might hurt it's replayability.

I am going to be Work/Limited Access (rather than Vacation/Limited Access) for the next several months.  There will be weeks where I am totally gone the entire week, then others where I can only make it back home to crash and sleep, then those occasional days where I actually have some real free time.  Unfortunately, this means I will be unable to play mafia (the reason I have not signed up for any of the new games) because I cannot commit to being involved for the entirety of the game. 

Hopefully I will be able to get back into it after this season of my life is over, but who knows what will happen after all those months.  I have really enjoyed the games that I played and getting to know some of you in this community better through the game of mafia and hope that I will be able to get back into it again, and this time actually win a couple [regular] games and/or actually be scum.  (4/4 town member (5/5 to include BM), 0/2 wins in regular mafia (so far, hopefully that gets to 1/3), while going 1/1 in RMM and 1/1 in BM)

Quick phone update. At the hospital where my wife just got admitted with double pneumonia which most would say is bad news but is way better than the "we don't know so wait it out" we got from 2 doctors over 10 days. It remains to be seen how this impacts my availability. I mean a lot of my time was spent caring for someone who for all intents was dying.

Brought the pingpongmissus home from the hospital this afternoon. She's still very weak and on some strong antibiotics but she is improving. I think my workload will remain high for a couple weeks taking care of the animals and meals and chores without help but I am smart enough to let some things lay while I don't over exert myself. The worst thing I could do is push myself to exhaustion and get sick too. I've had some real friends supporting me through this. The forum games are a great distraction when I am taking some time out.

Traveling out of state for work and will be VLA 3/5-3/7.

I'll have very limited access during the next month or two. I'll be starting a lot of extracurricular activities that'll keep me away from my house (and so, the internet) from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM on weekdays. I'll try to check in during whatever downtime I get, but homework will take priority over forum games. So, yeah. Expect to see a lot less of me for a while.

Hmmm.... maybe, but probably not as I can at least the forums 95% of the time. I think a large contributing factor is that cell phones of any kind are strictly forbidden in the lab I work in--and even if they were allowed I wouldn't want to use it there for fear of contamination.

Title: Re: Vacation/Limited Access announcements
Post by: Galzria on March 19, 2014, 03:23:35 pm
Is it a little late for a V/LA announcement?

Last November/December, I was talked into (challenged, motivated, whatever you want to call it) attempting what's generally referred to as "The Triple Crown" of swimming - Catalina Island to Los Angles (20.2 Miles, point-to-point), England to France (21 Miles point-to-point), and the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (28.5 Miles). Moreover, the goal set is to complete all three within a 1 year period. The list of people who have completed the three is less than 100 long, and those that have done so in under a year even fewer.

With these challenges set, I've been spending every spare moment (read: Not working/sleeping) either researching, or training. My training right now consists of 5 days of swimming (3 days with US Masters meets, and 2 days of distance swimming (10,000m)). In addition, I'm acclimating myself slowly to the bay area water temperatures (about 58 degrees this time of year) two days a week (usually a 1-2 mile swim depending on how I feel) - although I share days with my other training, leaving me 5 training days, and 2 rest days.

The rest of the time, when I'm not swimming, is spent either working, sleeping, occasionally eating, and driving to all the places I need to be on a daily basis. At the end of the day/week, I've simply got nothing left to spare a thought to.

The training will only increase as time goes on, although some of it will combine (eventually my two distances swims will be entirely contained within my cold water acclimation times). The first swim will be Catalina in mid-late 2015, with the English Channel in early-mid 2016. I haven't yet decided if I want to do Manhattan in 2015 or 2016.

Between water temperature, air temperature, currents, marine life, endurance, feeding, and a million and one other things to train for, this is my (albeit late) notice that my recreational life is basically on hold for the next two years.

I'm keeping a personal log/diary right now, but eventually I'll be setting up a website to update my progress. When that happens, I'll be sure to let you all know. In the meantime, everything sent my way here on f.ds is still filtered into my gmail, so I'm not completely unreachable. I just may not have time to check in for months at a time (as has been the case recently).

For anybody that's curious about the swims:

Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (http://www.nycswim.org/Event/Event.aspx?Event_ID=2402[/url)
Catalina Island Swim (http://swimcatalina.com/[/url)
English Channel (http://www.channelswimmingassociation.com/)
Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming (complete list) (http://www.triplecrownofopenwaterswimming.com/[/url)


-Edit-

Oh, and:

Why did this thread die?

Because I gave up drinking when I began training. I think I account for most of the posts in that thread pre-2014.....

I will be going through a charity, yeah. The total expense (especially for that one) is quite high. I'll be looking into contacting various organizations after I've made the downpayment on the Pilot - at which point I'll know the exact week that I'll be aiming for.

Leaving soon, requoting it now. It isn't my turn in any forum games currently, but I'm sure I'll still hold up some games eventually. I'll get to it as soon as I can. The next gokodom round will be two weeks long, which is good. To my opponent: I'll be able to start scheduling our match on or after April 12th, so hopefully we'll still have time to play our match in the following week.

Post by: Galzria on July 02, 2014, 02:37:43 pm
Update!

Training is going swimmingly (har). I've done my first 1/4 distance swim (6.2 miles / 10k) in lake water (warm compared to either channel - about 68 degrees) - and I made it through quite easily. I've done a 5k swim down in LA at Seal Beach - which is the same area that the Catalina Island Channel swim finishes. Again, the water felt warm, at a balmy 63 degrees. The water at that venue was really, really choppy (swells up to 5 feet), so even though it was short, it was a good experience.

For those of you familiar with the San Fransisco area, I'll be swimming my first 1/4 distance ocean water swim on August 9th, with the water closer to 58 degrees (similar to English Channel temperature) - when I jump off a boat at 7:30 AM under the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge, and swim around San Fransisco to the Bay Bridge. Fun times!

After that, I am hoping to get down to San Diego in late September, to do the La Jolla 10-mile relay (as a solo swimmer), and by years end, I hope to do a width crossing of Lake Tahoe (12 miles), which is 1/2 distance, at altitude, in semi-chilly water (high 50's, low 60's).

Aaaand, that's pretty much it. I hope to do Catalina next summer, and the English Channel in 2016 - so things are looking good right now. I miss playing all my forum games with you guys though! I see the Forum Game community has passed the 2 year mark - so there's hope yet that in another 2, I'll be finished with all my adventures, and I'll find myself some time to relax once more!

Title: Re: Vacation/Limited Access announcements
Post by: Galzria on July 02, 2014, 03:10:07 pm
Nice!  Did you ever set up a website describing your training process?

I haven't, although I've been recording everything in a log - so it's just a matter of actually putting it up. My standard week right now looks something like this though:

Monday Morning: Masters Swim/Ocean Swim (alternating weeks):
2-3 Miles (3.3k-4.8k), or about an hour to an hour and a half. Masters swims are shorter set based, pushing for speed, and Ocean Swims are usually focused on increasing stroke cadence.

Monday Evening: Masters Swim:
2 Miles (3.3k), just over an hour. Like Monday morning, this swim is all about shorter individual sets and sprints to push speed.

Tuesday: Off

Wednesday: Distance Swim:
This swim ranges from 10k to 15k, straight swimming. This swim is 2 1/2 - 4 hours in length.

Thursday: Light Swim:
My muscles are usually feeling a little bruised from Wednesday's swim, so I swim rather slowly on Thursday. The point here is just to get in and swim while I'm sore, as at some point no matter how tired and hurt I'm feeling, I'm going to need to keep swimming. This is a very casual swim, 2 miles (3.3k).

Friday: Repeat Monday Evening+:
I'll take whatever workout I swam on Monday, and add to each individual set. Usually it's half-again what I swim in the Evening, with a focus on reducing my rest time between each set. So high heart rate for longer times, with less rest. Ends up around 4k total.

Saturday/Sunday:
One day I'll take off, and the other I'll repeat my Thursday swim. Light workout, rest, recover, and get ready for the following week. Another 3.3k.

---

In total, it's between 25k-32k a week. It'll continue to build as my event swims get longer, but even at maximum, I'll top out at around 45k per week. I'll drop one of my two "light" workouts, and instead switch it to another distance swim (open water where possible). It still leaves me at 2 complete rest days per week, which is plenty to let my body recover and the muscle build.

...

That is awesome! What is your diet like, if you don't mind?

In all honesty, it's nothing special. As long as I make sure that I'm eating 3 full meals each day, I'm usually good. My daily deficit in calories on Monday/Wednesday/Friday (longer/harder swims) is between 6,000-8,000. The big things that I've cut out of my diet are beer (except on a rare occasion) and pizza (mmm). Really though, it's just about eating relatively healthy. Having a burger once or twice a week isn't going to kill me, or sharing in on some bacon cheese fries. But I also have my share of Southwest Chicken Salads, or your standard veggie type mixes (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Squash, Asparagus, etc). For the most part, I eat what I feel like, within reason. No ridiculous super-deep-fried-three-times-heart-attack-bombs.

It depends on if they're impacted or not -- mine weren't so it was relatively painless compared to what others have experienced. It's supposed to suck if they're impacted though.

Gonna be busy most of tomorrow so will likely be scarce when Dice Mafia starts back up.

I only had to have a couple wisdom teeth yanked. It was surgical but I abstained from the medication afterwards because it was so strong I preferred being in pain. It wasn't pleasant to be sure but it was manageable with ibuprofen for a couple days and then it was over. Mepergan was the crazy strong pain killer. I don't think they prescribe that stuff in the US anymore.

heh heh. Mine aren't unhealthy, but if left alone they will completely screw up all the orthodontic work I had done. So it's worth it to take em out.

And yeah, they aren't impacted thankfully. I'm pretty young. But I've heard the whole process is much worse the older you get it done.

I forget the name of the drug they're prescribing me, it isn't morphine or anything. It's something more keyed specifically to oral anti-inflammatory action in addition to the painkiller.

The only concerns that surgeon voiced was the one was close to my sinus pockets, and another's root was right next to the nerve running down my jaw. So worst comes to worst, I have a permanently numb lip, or I lose all taste in one side of my tongue, but I hope it doesn't come to that  ;D

Had my surgery today. I felt like shit earlier, but doing better now that I'm on all the painkillers and stuff. Have quite a bit of catching up to do in all my games, so expect somewhat low activity until I'm a little more recovered.

I need to get mine out as well :( I unfortunately decided they would be fine since they weren't impacted so they are pretty much in...but yes all the work my braces did have been utterly ruined and then some

Limited access starting tomorrow through Monday. This really only affects the games I'm modding at the moment, but Sentinels may start up. I should be able to check in at least once per day.

I'm road tripping to Ohio! Cedar Point, here I come!

Oh, dear Lord. There are few places on earth I hate more than Cedar Point. We went in 8th grade. I hate rides so much, such torture. In 11th grade, when my class went again, I opted not to participate. I went to school instead. Physics class was preferable to Cedar Point.

Have a good time!

Oh come on! I went to Six Flags for my 9th birthday and I regret being too scared to ride most of the rides. Since then I've gotten to ride on some fun coasters (I'm an adrenaline junkie now) but this'll be my first time on anything very major. I'm excited!

Insurance companies make theme parks pay more money for merry-go-rounds than for roller coasters.

Again, I'd rather do physics homework. I get seasick from standing up too quickly. I don't even want to watch other people ride roller coasters, let alone ride one myself.

The merry-go-round is pretty much just as bad. All that spinning, ugh. I need to go lie down now.

Hey I actually did go there a few years back! It was so fun! I forget what the rides were like though, maybe there was some big stuff there I'm forgetting.

Hmmm...could be the loops.  It's funny because wooden coasters feel both more dangerous and safer at the same time.  As I've gotten older, my fear of heights and coasters has gotten worse, though.  Ferris wheels and funiculars scare the crap out of me now -- worst of both worlds.

It's amazing because it feels like it will never end...right before the second lift hill, it feels like "oh thank god we're done...OHMYGODNOTANOTHER ONE."

I love rickety wooden rollercoasters. I went to Lagoon a couple of weeks ago and that really old wooden rollercoasters they had was my favorite. It's something about the way the car rocks across the tracks that I find really thrilling.
