That moment when you see the number/quality of offerings for your new county library system and realize your old system, that you thought was well-funded, was actually underfunded....severely underfunded. Oct 20, 2020

      Nice interview, Mr. Pineapple! :D

      Didn't you join with ShelLuser? You did not mention this in the interview from deadmon when discussing how you came to EMC, so I feel like I might've mixed things up!

        It was a few days after him. I definitely knew him pre-EMC days though and he's the one that told me about this server.

        Now I wonder how well funded mine is. It seems fairly so?

      I'm not sure what shocks me more at the moment: Tropical Storm Alpha (yes, greek alphabet now), or the fact it's about to hit Portugal.....

        It happened once back in 2005, but yeah, bit disturbing that we keep trending upwards on both count and severity.

      Just a heads up - Mojang is taking down account service servers for ~15 minutes at 4am EMC time on September 21st for maintenance. So if you attempt to get on around that time and find you can't, that's probably why.

        For me its like "I'll go to sleep after this 1 youtube video" and I end up watching 30 different videos of minecraft build ideas and decorations for your single player world, and even though I'm tired as heck atleast my storage is much prettier.

      Ever wonder how those square roots come out of nowhere on your calculator? You'll find that answer when you study Newton's Method in Calculus. By golly it's fascinating (I was not taught this when I took the course....)

      Welp, minecraft speedrunning has officially broken the sub-20 random seed barrier on 1.16 (though it's becoming increasingly plausible it could be done pre-1.16....)

      If a door you closed three years ago unexpectedly reopens, do you walk through it or keep it shut? Conundrum of my life atm.

        It's a door that was only shut for financial reasons (i.e. I would be completely broke if it didn't pan out). I'm back in the same position I was then except I'm in a better financial position and I don't have the last year of grad school breathing down my neck. Soooo......

      Whoever had the status about the Apple settlement e-mail that looked like a scam last week, they will follow it up with a postcard in the mail - I got mine today. If you want to pursue a claim I recommend going off the postcard information when it arrives. :)

        And for the record: The case is well publicized and 100% legit. It's involving a lawsuit claiming Apple intentionally slowed down iOS updates and firmware updates for Iphones 6 and 7 (and their subvariants). You can find details on the lawsuit online fairly easily.

        Huh, I didn't know that. I posted about a settlement last week but it had to do with Google plus. Gotta love that planned obsolescence.

      TBH Vahalla is looking more like a Fast and Furious 9 than a 2. There's no meaningful contributions that makes it different from Origins/Odyssey. Odyssey substantially expanded naval gameplay from Origins, and Origins was brand new concept for AC. I'm just not impressed...

      Your life is yours. And your purpose is to love it and what you do with it. Don't sacrifice yourself to doing something you can't stand to meet the expectations/standards of someone else, including your self-doubt. Be who you want to be. If you're not there yet start going there.

      The tiny bit of my brain that is selfish just remembered I was planning a trip to Europe for right about now in October and it's now thinking "I get it crashed and burned cause reasons you couldn't control, but when do you plan to keep your promise?" Uhhh......idk? Soon? Maybe?

      Got Civilization VI when it went free late last week. As far as my time management is concerned it's probably the worst decision I've made in the last few months. XD Such a good game!

        Current rumors suggest the next two are Borderlands followed by Ark Survival Evolved. Never played the latter; only familiar with it by name (that's it lol). As for former - I've never cared for Borderland's graphics.

        And yes they'll ask even if MC is still around - which I hope it will be. Floppy discs are still around and you wouldn't believe how many freshmen in the American Government classes I designed said they had *no clue* what they were.
