I'm only a couple weeks from my 5 year anniversary date.

Wow, I'm here since 6 1/4 years, insane.
I just checked and I'm nearing 6 years as well. Pretty crazy considering I hardly even play Dominion anymore.

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.

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.

Yeah, i showed up right after Donald X went away from the forum for a while just as iso was going down and goko took over unopposed.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

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.

Sicilian Hunting Song is correct.

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?

Almost 7 years here.  I was here on day 2? 3?

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.

Well, that makes sense. I was actually a bit surprised that you had that processor with only 4 gigs of RAM.
