Hi guys, I have some super awesome news that I wanted to share with my online friends (and I'm fully aware of how lamesauce that sounds) and I was looking for the right place to do it.  I thought about the Random Stuff thread but then thought, I bet other people have good news they'd like to share sometimes too so...this thread has now been born.  I'm thinking fun and exciting things like graduations, new puppies, exciting moves, etc.  Super excited to hear about your good stuffs!

My show opens in 3 nights. I'm part of the ensemble for Big: The Musical. You may think this is a new show. Actually, it's been around for nearly 20 years. Who knew?

Anyway, excited about this because it'll be my first show with some pretty crazy choreography, and I haven't done anything like this before.

And, well, it's Big.

Congrats rae!

Kuildeous, do you get to tap dance on a giant piano?

Congrats.

I also got a job. Been temping ever since graduating in 2010, looking for someone to take me on permanently. A few permanent jobs came up where I'd been temping for a month and I applied and got one. Today is my second day but so far it's pretty boring. First week is our induction but I've been working there for over a month already so it's pretty pointless from my position, but there are other new people so it makes sense for them. Never mind. It's permanent and I get paid a salary rather than an hourly wage for the first time in forever.

Nope, I get to lift the lid off the giant piano for the two to dance on. The original plan was to have a plexiglass piano built that lights up. Best-laid plans and all, but they fell through. So, we have a painted piano. It still looks cool. I imagine that a Broadway budget made the piano really awesome.

Well, I started my new job today, but it isn't that exciting since I was already working here during my previous job.
They just liked me so much they decided they wanted to hire me directly instead of paying my previous employer way too much to hire me.

It's not officially announced yet, which is why I can only jump up and down with excitement in anonymity currently.

I don't suppose you can give us a really quick blurb about basic mechanics?

Congrats!  And also congrats to those of you moving from temp to permanent jobs!

Honestly, at the moment I'm not 100% what's okay to talk about and what's not, because of the licensing. I promise I would love to ramble about it for hours, and as soon as it's officially announced, no one will be able to stop me.
It has dice! And tokens! And spaces! And a rulebook!
Also, once I figure out what booth number it'll be at, I'll put that up also.

Licensing... does that mean it's a game for an existing brand/franchise?  Or just generic licensing?

Let's all ask more questions he probably can't answer!  :D

Might as well post this here instead of the VLA thread on forum games. But my wife and I are expecting our first child at the beginning of August. We are having a girl. Pretty excited about it.

One name we were seriously considering was "yuma." My wife and I both loved it as the name of the street we were living on--hence my choosing it as my f.ds name--but ultimately I found it kinda weird to give our child a name that I had night killed and lynched people with... (not to mention Saboteuring, Swindling and Torturing.)

Just got a job offer. Kind of came out of nowhere (I was not actively looking for work) but it's a big step up from where I'm at now so I'm really excited for it.

I'll definitely check this out. I hope the Sentinel bucks combine with the board game too.

I'm not 100% sure what the plan is as far as >G promotions go; I'm just a designer. The demo we'll have at Gen-Con doesn't have final art; it's just a gameplay demo at this point.

I'm just excited I can answer questions about the game now! :D

[image]

I remember when you told me you were barely able to get under 20 minutes. Also looks like you've been streaming, judging by the Wsplit you have up?

Also...
I just did an IQ test and I'm at 132...  That means I'm in ~2.5% of smart people in the population!

Since I don't have much else to brag about at the moment, IQ of 157 here, which is, what, top one in 5.4K (assuming normal distribution with mean of 100 and SD of 16)? I expect high IQs to be pretty commonplace here, but probably only a small handful would beat that. And as one of the top ones I'll be the first to say it: IQ measures your ability to do well in IQ tests and not really a lot else. At least IQ tests are pretty consistent with themselves... (I've gotten a 156 and a 157 over the two tests I've done)

Indeed, IQ tests don't really measure anything directly except how well you do on those tests.  The only time I took a properly administered IQ test, I was at 155, which was also the highest possible score; that test basically said "We don't measure past four nines, what would be the point?"

So, sure, I can claim being in the top 0.01%--that and a dollar gets you a cup of coffee.  (Yes, it also gets you into a ton of special schooling programs if you want them.  And much more likely to get significant scholarships since IQ tests correlate with achievement tests.  But both of those are essentially the product of using that intelligence.)

Note that none of this stuff correlates directly with success, wealth, power, or happiness.

Congrats.

I also got a job. Been temping ever since graduating in 2010, looking for someone to take me on permanently. A few permanent jobs came up where I'd been temping for a month and I applied and got one. Today is my second day but so far it's pretty boring. First week is our induction but I've been working there for over a month already so it's pretty pointless from my position, but there are other new people so it makes sense for them. Never mind. It's permanent and I get paid a salary rather than an hourly wage for the first time in forever.

Got an interview tomorrow for a new position within the company which I kinda knew was in the pipeline when I took my current position. It's related to what I was doing previously when I was temping, but a bit more involved and permanent and a has higher salary than my current job. I (and they) knew I'd be applying for this once it happened, but they told me to take the other job anyway in case this didn't happen. It's been advertised internally and we're a pretty small company, so I'm fairly certain I'm the only one who's applied and it's looking good. Watch this space for confirmation of bragging.

I've been recording, but I haven't been streaming. It slows down my game just slightly (around 90-95% of normal speed), but it's enough to make all my muscle memory just a bit off.

He could also just be making his own. I get espresso at work basically for free because I have an aeropress on my desk.

This didn't start out as a brag post but I guess "I get free espresso" qualifies.

I just got upgraded from student employee to "graduate research assistant" at my university, which means a nice new salaried pay rate and a tuition waiver. So now I don't need to take any loans for grad school*.

Also, 1000th post :)

* technically I'm in the "concurrent BS/MS program", meaning I'll get both degrees at the same time. Also I was a math major at a different school for 3 years before transferring and switching to computer science, but this is my fifth year of college, first semester with any grad courses, so I guess I should just call it grad school now.

Day 4 of having Google Fiber. It's pretty sweet. Getting used to a couple of features missing, but that's just the effect of change. So far the positives outweigh the negatives. Aw yeah.

Congrats. Did you follow a particular training program? I'm trying to work my way up to a 30 minute 5K right now; using the Couch-to-5K app. Like you, when I started I couldn't run a half-mile. But I'm definitely struggling to get past a particular set.

Mostly getting used to the new setup. The negatives have been pretty minor so far.

No clock on the cable box so I actually have to buy an additional clock in case our phones are more than 3 feet away.
There is no AMC in our lineup, since it's owned by Time Warner
When I fast-forward through a commercial and press play, it doesn't jump back a few seconds to account for the timing of when I see the commercial break ending.
There is no TV on demand like what Time Warner had.

Mostly, there were features that TWC had that I miss, but I'm coping with the losses.

Also, the speed is not nearly as blazing as one might hope. I expected this, actually. I read some articles about how Fiber does allow for data transfer of 1 GB/sec, but today's hardware limitations don't really allow that. I still have to contend with other servers (and since Kansas City is currently the only place with Fiber, I can expect slower speeds in most of my browsing). It's still faster, though, just not reaching that 1 GB number (yet). I like to think of it as paving the way for the future.

So, slightly reverse topic.

I work for a large multinational company. And each month they send out lists of 'Things to Brag about' which are highlights of the company and upcoming projects.

Just seen one from several months ago.

"CGI is proud to be one of the leading suppliers of the new Medicare Website"

I also did C25K, and I think I know which set you're talking about: that first time you have to run 20 minutes continuously.  I didn't think I could do it either, and I gave up once or twice.  But I trusted my body and just pushed through with force of will, and now running 20 minutes is nothing at all.

I love hearing stuff like this.  I hear so many people say things regarding there inability to run but so much of it is solely based off of them not doing it before.  As long as you have the proper mindset and dedication you can prepare yourself for most any type of running race. 

Go for the half marathon next theory!

As someone who consistently fluctuates in and out of shape, I mostly agree. When you just start out running, though, you really get winded fast. The bright side is that it doesn't take long to improve by a huge amount.

Immensely proud of myself today.

Helped organise a concert for my charity.

Filled a church hall with 300+ people, and a proper military orchestra playing oldie songs, film scores and the like.

Went off extremely well. Reckon we probably made over £3000

This weekend we played two Swedish National Championships of a game called The Spoils. It's a TCG similar to Magic The Gathering, so the two championships were Limited (where you build a deck from a pool of random cards, then top 8 drafts for the playoffs) and Constructed. While I failed miserably at Constructed during the quarter finals, I managed to win the Limited Championship. Even though there were only 15 players, I feel like bragging about it a bit. ;)

There might have been only 15 players, but consider the following: the rest of Sweden was so scared of your skills that they didn't even bother showing up!

If you use 'real origami paper', the holes at the top of the triangles shouldn't be there. I used some construction paper, but it didn't turn out as nice as it would have if I had used thinner paper instead.

In actual fact you have booked and paid for a tour of an Onion factory in Strasbourg.

I was in an Auberge in Quebec once. We were asked what we wanted for breakfast, followed by a list of options. It also sounded good, so we kept saying "Oui".
Too bad we ended up only getting the last item from the list, which was very dark toast with loads of butter on it.

I threw together a pot pi for dinner.  Never made one before, didn't use a recipe, and only used ingredients I had in the house.  It came out amazingly delicious.

You certainly don't need a recipe; you just use 3.14 tablespoons of everything.

Yesterday I came home from dinner to find 20 people waiting in my apartment for a surprise birthday party. Just having friends like these feels like such a blessing and definitely bragworthy. I guess I must have done some things in life real well to be surrounded with people like this now!

Tough players in my country.

It's a bit sad being 19th on the overall Goko leaderboard and still being only the 4th Dutchman after Stef, SheCantSayNo and Florrat.

Well, Stef has one (for 2012 DS Champion) and deserves another one (for 2013 Dutch Championship). I don't have a blue star, but I have something different: a very surprised look realizing that I'm above Davio :o

On Isotropish yes, not on Goko, where I just grabbed the #10 spot.  ;D

I just don't play that often anymore, certainly not often enough to keep a good Isotropish rating. Goko is a little more forgiving and you can keep a good rating there with no more than 1 game a day on average, as I tend to do. Heck, I don't even own any sets, I just join whatever random game seems interesting, even if it's a casual game.

But lately, it seems like I just can't lose a game on Goko. ??? Which is of course due to a pretty good combination of luck and skill, I just don't know which part's luck and which is skill. ;D

In any case, I never considered myself a "pro" player, even if I did win that Dutch championship 2 years ago and can keep a decent rating. I just don't take a "pro" approach to the game. I don't play high level players exclusively and I'm not just looking to increase my rating. I'm just looking for fun games with fun people. Maybe that laidback approach is why my rating has increased over the last weeks. I don't care if I'm top 10 or top 100. Of course I'd rather be the former than the latter and I always try to win, but I also try to take a more healthy approach to the game.

Some time ago before Goko I took a couple of months timeout, because I was playig too compulsively. Now I can just play a few games to relax and have some fun and don't worry too much about it. My family is not suffering from my playing, my work is not suffering and those are way more important to me than this silly game we call Dominion.

I consider myself a competitive player and think I can hold my own against anyone and that's good enough for me.

Well the "graduate college too" was implied, as it was clearly the target.  As for 'me' vs. 'I am', maybe he's majoring in caveman linguistics!  Does caveman grammar count as bad grammar if it's internally consistent?

In Australia, college is high school.  So confusing.

yeah, same way in Canada (at least parts of it). You have to make sure to say "university" otherwise people will look down on you...

Occasionally. I think that's the case here in Canberra, but in Sydney where I grew up the only colleges I knew of were student halls within universities (something between a dorm and a fraternity, I think).

I'm in Sydney now, and there's definitely colleges that are high schools.  Maybe they're just the private schools?

I just did a search for schools in NSW called a college, and going very quickly through them it looks like a lot of them are existing High Schools that have banded together into "collegiates", or are closely associated with tertiary institutions. I suspect many of these are fairly recent developments, too, which would be why I'm not familiar with them.

Makes sense.  I was thinking of Brigidine College and Moriah College as two quick examples.

In the UK, secondary school is 5 years after which you used to be allowed to leave, followed by two years of "sixth form".  A sixth form not attached to a school is a college.  They will typically, but not exclusively, have more of a vocational focus.

A college can also be one of the 20+ institutions making up the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge, or the name of a faculty/department ("College of Physical Sciences").

Yesterday I ran a mile. So I'm sure that sounds just silly to all those people who run marathons and all that, but I haven't been able to run a mile non-stop since 8th grade.

Nice!  It's the first mile that's the hardest.  As someone who makes running a regular part of my life the hardest thing about running is not actually the running.  It's getting out to do the running.  Keep it up Gendo!

Thanks! Just finished another. I agree, actually making myself do it seems to be the hardest part. I'm running indoors, on a treadmill, which is a bit easier.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACT_(test), it's an entry to college (university) test, and the top score is 36, and the average score is about 20.

Is that the UK one? 6 questions, 7 points each, answering two questions well is really good? If so, well done, that's probably, what, two completely answered questions and partial credit for one?

USA actually but I think that they are about the same difficulty. I think I got 7 points for #5, 5 points for #4, and 4 points for #2.

Edit: Oh I bet you thought I was British because I said maths. I only do that to stop Ozle from yelling at me.

I finished my first marathon today! (Cleveland's). 3:55:06 was the time, which I'm fairly pleased with.

I'm hurting pretty bad right now, and stairs are a particular nemesis.

Pretty obvious he was watching The Cleveland Show marathon.  There are four seasons, so 3:55:06 is indeed good time.

He thought I meant it was a restaurant that just served generic "African" food. Most African restaurants will be West African or Ethiopian or Eritrean or whatever.

I was wondering if they were as authentic as Indian or Chinese restaurants, which are famously accurate in their presentation of traditional recipes.

Med cruise. Never cruised before. Am excited.

Great choice! Some of the happiest memories of my life were on a Mediterranean cruise. My suggestions are; You can do all the excursions on your own, avoid the shops your "supposed" to go to, and don't be afraid to stay on the boat. I'm sure you will have an amazing time!

Awesome!  Roth IRAs are a ridiculous lifehack, and if you can afford one you should keep contributing the max each year.

I hope you put it into an index fund?

My remaining problem with index funds is that I would be taking profits from tobacco companies and arms dealers.  Screening those out tends to push you into the arms of active managers.  It's been a while since I investigated this though, so perhaps it's time for me to have another go.

My account says it is a mutual fund Roth IRA, which I assume is different than an index fund, but I really don't know very much at all about these things.  The guy on the other end just asked on a scale of 1-6 how much risk I was willing to take, and I told him 6.  I can always downgrade the risk in later years as life circumstances change.  And I plan on contributing the max every year.

Funny.  I literally know someone who runs a fund creating "ethical indices" with minimal cost.  I think it's silly but clearly my view is not universal.

Roth IRA just means a type of account, the same way that checking accounts and savings accounts are different.  Index fund refers to where the money is going.  Are you investing with some person?  Are you paying a lot for their services?  In general the most efficient investing strategy is to dumbly put your funds in the market, instead of paying extra to have someone try to beat the market for you.  No one beats the market in the long term, and so maximizing your return is really all about minimizing your fees.

The very rough idea is that most fund managers will try and guess which stocks will outperform and invest in those.  An index fund will buy stocks in proportions corresponding to the index you want to track (something like the FTSE 100, or the Dow Jones Industrial Average).  Since most managers do no better than random guessing, but incur extra charges whenever they make a trade, index funds are generally reckoned to be a much cheaper route to equal returns.  Definitely do some reading: it could make a world of difference over 40 years.

I am not paying anyone for the account.  My bank will manage it for me at no additional cost. 

That being said, I will definitely do some more research into it, and will be able to adjust how the funds are allocated within the IRA fund over time.  The important part that I got from my conversation is that you can only add so much money per year, so even if the funds are not performing at maximum potential, it is still very important to at least get it started because you can't catch up later.

Yeah. I have just two expansions, and usually I get to play with all of the expansions. I still think that buying them was worth it for those situations where I'm playing against someone with no cards, it's significantly more interesting than just base and only somewhat less interesting than all cards.

This weekend we played two Swedish National Championships of a game called The Spoils. It's a TCG similar to Magic The Gathering, so the two championships were Limited (where you build a deck from a pool of random cards, then top 8 drafts for the playoffs) and Constructed. While I failed miserably at Constructed during the quarter finals, I managed to win the Limited Championship. Even though there were only 15 players, I feel like bragging about it a bit. ;)

This year we only had Constructed Nationals, but I won that one!

Ok. Short tale of Team Fortress 2 Revenge here.
Spy is probably my all-time favorite class, and I was having a ton of fun playing Sawmill--even making it to the top of my team.
Then two enemies started talking about how spies can't carry a team and how we were noobs (true, I see too many spies on teams a lot, but our team only had 2 at that time, including myself).

Anyway, I got the perfect chance as the two enemy team members who had been chatting were right next to each other (this is later, so they weren't AFK or anything--they were actually on their way to try and spawncamp) and I managed to backstab both the soldier and the heavy.  ;D

Here's a screenshot from the game. IDK, it just makes me happy because I'm not the best at a lot of different games, but I feel pretty confident with TF2.

I have just been cast in a local production of Jekyll & Hyde. I get to play a pompous surgeon and Hyde #2. That last part may sound strange, but this show is interesting in that the actor playing Jekyll never plays Hyde. Four of the other actors each play a different personality of Hyde. Hyde #2 is not the super-scary brutal Hyde, but I look forward to wearing this mask.

My first show since my year-long hiatus and my first nonmusical in about 4 years. I believe that And Then There Were None was my last dramatic performance.

I just auditioned for Music Man, and got the bass part in the quartet, which was exactly what I wanted!

It will probably just be some suit or something...

Actually, two suits, since I'm also in the first scene as a different person.

I got a promotion!! :D

...for a job I'm starting on Monday. Yes. They called me today to tell me they're moving me into the position above the one they initially offered me!

(Also, just having a job after several months of searching is extremely exciting in itself. :))

I am not sure what to think about this. My first thought is "man, what a bad negotiator Dsell is, underselling himself by one whole position". My second is, "Boy, what a great company Dsell must have found!"  Congrats.

Well again, first job after searching for months, etc. I wasn't gonna turn down much. :P Although I did turn down a sales position earlier in the summer and fully stand by that choice.

Basically, I'm entering a pretty large and established department in a company. There's a hierarchy that (unless you have a fair amount of experience) you're slotted into, with the chance to move up after as little as a few months or as much as a couple years. They moved me into that second position directly.

I think it was some combination of good timing on my part, need on their part, a strong interview/resume, and a pretty good score on their entrance competency exam (the Wonderlic test, if you're familiar with it. I got a 39, which I was inwardly appalled by, but they were pretty impressed).

Yeah I mean, all of us could tell where this was going, you two were the only ones that still denied it. The sexual tension was palpable since whenever the Montreal meetup happened.

The only question left is: are you going to adopt Markusin?

Yesterday I won a local chess tournament with 6 out of 6. Which isn't actually all that impressive when you see that my break-even score against the field I faced was 5.31, but I was happy with the way I played in all six games. Which doesn't happen very often.

Funny, the groomsmen split 2-2 on that front.  Two Windsors + two Eldredges (and the groom was in the middle with a Trinity).  If I'm going to be spoiling a tux with a notch lapel and a long tie (matching the bridesmaids), I'd much rather wear an unusual knot instead of a standard knot.

It's OK though, it's still by far the best wedding I've ever been to excluding my own.  It was my college best friend and so I'm probably somewhat biased, but the weather was incredible (crisp and cool), the ceremony was touching, we picked out nice entrance music for ourselves, and the processional march was from the Final Fantasy X soundtrack.

An update on my running... a few months ago I posted that I just ran a mile for the first time since I was kid. Well now I'm doing 5K at a stretch. Not fulling running the entire way; still intervals with some fast walking. Did 5K in 36:40 tonight!
