The temptation to click on the STAR WARS thread is strong.

There aren't any blatant spoilers there that aren't blacked out... but man will that stay true before I get to watch the movie!

I feel like once I'm there the temptation to hover the blacked out spoilers will overcome me.

I've been avoiding the forum entirely. Now that I've seen it, I can go there now.

I don't even know if that was supposed to be Star Wars, but if it was, keep it in the relevant thread, please.

That was indeed a mispost. Sorry.

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, I do not do well with a puking person. Fortunately, she was cognizant enough to dump her puke bucket on her own.

I could never be a father, man.

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*

I either work 10-6 or 5-1. I'm usually in bed sometime around 2-3am daily.

I've been away from before Christmas until just now. Did I miss anything interesting on F.DS over the Christmas period? Or was 90-93% of it just      moat?

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.

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.
