Random Stuff Part IV
« 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.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

That was Mafia Games.  Here we use true numbers.

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

I drew a picture, how do I upload it from my computer?

1. upload it somewhere, e.g. 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 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):


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.

It's the wrong link. Yout link goes to a page with the image there, not to the page of just the image. You need to use this link: https://preview.ibb.co/iFLvAR/IMG_8575.jpg

Already sold out at least 6 auditoriums for Star Wars tonight. Would it be unreasonable for me to call off due to "dread"?

I'm terrible at reviewing movies, and also don't care if someone spoils it for me, so I just don't bother saying anything at all.

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.

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.

Man, we shifted our policy so that everyone has to work at least until 4:00. I adjusted my schedule for that, and I'm feeling so antsy sitting here this late in the day. It's going to take some getting used to.

I also don't like coming in late at 7:30. All the good parking spaces are taken. *whine*

Has anyone here ever played the board game Diplomacy two-player? I just did so against my dad over the weekend, after years of not having played Diplomacy at all.

Though, I've played A Game of Thrones: The Board Game recently, which is essentially the same thing.

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.

Fun fact: Chairs first post was made to correct a post of mine - although as it turned out IIRC I was correct anyway, or at least his correction also needed further correction. I'm somewhat confident therefore that Chairs named himself because of me.

Wouldn't he be named YouEatChairs, or something like that then?

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.

I wish we could create a new one, but it's out of my hands. I just have to stare at that ugliness for, like, ever.

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.

We're coming up on the 5 year anniversary of isotropic shutting down (which happened on March 15, 2013). So soon, anybody who came here from isotropic will have been here 5+ years.

March 2013? Really? It seems I registered here in January 2013. There was a period of time where I was on Isotropic but not on F.DS, but I figured I was on the forum for longer before Iso closed down. Weird.

I'm going to be doing a lot of driving this weekend, can anyone recommend a good podcast or audio book? I've never been into either of those things and have no idea what I'm looking for, I just figured it might be more entertaining than listening to music for hours and people here probably have similar interests to mine.

I enjoy the Future of Life podcasts you can download them free but you might prefer something more light-hearted. This is also a source for (similarly serious) podcasts.

The audibooks I like are all in German ...

For podcasts:
  • Reply All. It's loosely internet themed but has a lot of variety.
  • Planet Money, if you find economics at all interesting.
  • I listen to a number of other podcasts but they're either very inconsistent or quite specific in interest. (If you mention some interests then I can see if there's something I can recommend.)

My mom was wondering, what's the translation of "Sizilianisches Jagdlied"?  She thinks it's Sicilian Hunting Song, but she just wants to be sure and google translate isn't perfect.

No, but I suggested it, for fear of being wrong.  Even though it wouldn't have been me that was wrong.

I had a dream about this site/dominion, which is weird because I hardly actually play and I've been away for a while. there were a bunch of new threads about a new card, called vaccinate, but it was always written as V*CCINATE. I'm not anti-vax

I have 4 GB RAM and this processor. What is more likely to be the bottleneck factor of slowing my computer down when I do things like have a bunch of firefox windows open and a stream running and play a 2d game, or at worst play prismata?

The RAM, but can't you just confirm this by opening task manager and checking how much of RAM and CPU is being used by each program?

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.
