TomvanWijnen

Venerable Member, Male, from The Netherlands

Late last night I suddenly realised that my 8th EMC birthday was over one month ago... and I completely forgot it until now... :P Whoopsie. :P Jan 6, 2020

      I just realised that if you say "DCs" weirdly, you get "disease"... whoops. :P

        I do agree, especially when I wasn't involved so it wasn't my problem if it got out of hand. :D

        Code was a bit too unstable with the work towards 1.13 to go deploying anything for the day. We'll make it up to y'all =)

      Having a glass of water on your desk when electronics are around is completely fine. Do, however, remove it when you're going to mess around with cables, as cables can be stronger and behave differently from how you anticipated them to be. I learned this the hard way. ... ._.

        water got all over the keyboard, and inside a bit too (it's an old laptop and has small gaps so water can conveniently leak inside :P). I immediately turned it off and opened it up entirely (rear panel off, entire keyboard off). Water didn't come in that much luckily. I dried off every drop of water I could see, fortunately nothing visibly got on electronical stuff.

        The only thing still: visible water was literally inside the keyboard. I've set the keyboard on its side so it can droop out onto a towel, and did the came with the mouse buttons. They've been on their side for like 7 hours now, so I think that I'm going to put everything back together now to see if the keyboard still works...

        Yes, sorry, I was going to pay & pickup today after I started up my computer, but I did some oopsies and had to spend a while fixing that, so I haven't been online yet. :P (originally I was going to do it yesterday, actually, but then I unexpectedly spent the entire evening helping somone) I kept the thread in my unread threads list so I wouldn't forget about it. :)

      Wha? Life TEXP: 0. Month TEXP: 10. Even disregarding the 180,000 disappeared XP, that does not make any sense whatsoever... :P EDIT: Ah, it works again. :P

      I finally finished a massive schoolproject that I had been working on (with way too many breaks) for half a year. After much "long term stress" (I don't normally get stressed ever) and difficulty starting, it's finally done and can finally leave my mind! :D So happy right now! :D

        Here they also get good attendance, because people from the 5th year HAVE to go, and parents are invited too. Friends in the same year can't come generally, because they obviously have to do their own presentations at the same time. :P

        Yup, I'm still going to be doing my best for the presentation, because it just feels the right thing to do (and it isn't that difficult to be honest, as you already have most of the text available anyways :P - I'm just not that good at presenting).

        I can be good, but tend to get nervous. One tip: don't obscure the digiboard with your body. :$ I only found out nobody had been able to read the slides at 70% of my presentation.

      I don't understand how people can mix up "apart" and "a part"... One is an adverb/adjective while the other is just an article with a noun, and they have completely different definitions...

        But they sound pretty much the same. Like "they're", "their" and "there".

        They sound less similar than your example, though, and they're (:rolleyes:) definitions are also easier to keep apart (:D) (to be honest, I also don't entirely understand how "they're", "their", and "there" are confused so much, but still. :P).

      Dangit, I had been voting consistently literally every day before midnight for over 4 months, but today I finally broke that streak... I was in the shower while my alarms went, and apparently did not realise that it had already been past midnight until now... big whoops. :P

        Grrrrr my alarms didn't go off today because of no good reason..... -_- I got the "Clock has stopped" message 3 times much earlier today, but forgot to restart my phone then, and didn't think much of it... turns out to have been a bad call, sigh... I hate this thing my phone sometimes does, where it randomly decides alarms just don't need to go off... it's why I also use my old phone as a wake up alarm... :P

        No Tom, that would be a terrible idea, it would make me do even less for school... :P To be fair: I'm currently in the middle of a test week and I didn't open any books since it started, but, you know, even I tend to at least go there, and I prefer to keep it that way :P
