        For the record: you're at vote bonus 1529 and I'm at 1440, so 89 behind. I'm curious how long it'll take to overtake you. :P

      Ugh. Had to make an account on a site, did so, waited for an activation email. The activation email only came at 4:43 AM, and said that it worked for 1 hour... that turned out to be true: the code doesn't work anymore, but I can't get into the account either nor remake it... >.<

        It's ov-chipkaart.nl... :P Was going to call them, but then thought of a better idea: just add spaces in my username to create a new account, which worked. :D It's quite poor though, for almost all issues they suggest to just make a new account.... >.<

        It is indeed. :P The site to make an OV chipkaart itself was also somewhat janky, and it said that it takes them up to 6 WORKdays to make the card... which is ridiculously long in my opinion... I hope it won't be more than that, otherwise I'll get it too late... >.<

      New laptop: cool! Issues with keyboard though. Repaired. Issues with speakers. Repair soon. Also today suddenly dented in on the underside. Repair soon. Oh it also makes weird electrical noises. Likely repair soon. Oh and the screen is crooked when closed. Great support though :P

      I saw some squids in an aquarium in Helsingør in Denmark recently. They are so cute. :D The aquarium itself was great too! :)

        I just realised that the creatures I had in mind were actually likely jellyfish... :P I'm sure I saw some squids too, though, and I'm also sure that tgey were cool. :)

        And I now I realise that I typo'd "they" into "tgey"... I also typo'd "they" into "thry" in the main status (but edited it)... seems like my phone's touchscreen in combination with my fingers doesn't like the word "they"... :P (in general my touchscreen is terrible, sadly.)

        Haha, jellyfish are cute! I'm not sure about squids, I don't think I've seen them.

      I have 32 times as many tokens as rupees. :P

      I'm looking for an Aikar and a Krysyy head - willing to exchange for an Aikar Hot Hat, or pay by rupees or otherwise (or a combination). :)

      Getting my new laptop today! :D The only issue is that the tracking code says "damaged during transport", so I hope that it's not too bad... wish me luck lol - EDIT: it arrived without issues and is up and running now. It's a fabulous machine. :D

        Yeah, I was not surprised by your getting a new laptop! I was curious about the "damaged during transport".

        Ah, yes, me too! The box looked mostly fine, had a few dents and some tape over the previous address came loose (it was sent from the seller to a different shop, from where my aunt resent it to here in France!), and the contents could move around a fair bit

        Fortunately, there was a lot of protective bubble plastic, and everything is intact. :D Really happy with the device. :D

        Well, sometimes it works fine, while other times is absolutely deplorable.... I still need a wired internet connection to my room - I'm fairly sure that most of the terrible internetness comes from having to usw Wifi. :/

        Thanks for your offer! I'm leaving Wednesday morning/early afternoon (so voting myself until Tuesday evening), but I always vote for 8 accounts, which, I'm afraid, is probably a little bit difficult to all fit on 1 site... :P Let's just hope Jelle's streak will improve. :P

        Ahh, yeah, that makes sense. Personally, if I'd spend the time for a subject, I'd also want to get proper recognition for it... but perhaps it was just like maths D and computer science, that'd be okay too. (do note that 3 lessons for me is 3 times 75 minutes)

      Captcha stopped working halfway through voting -_- sigh. Nothing works for me today. :/ EDIT: it works again, but my last statement still holds a lot of truth.

        Hey Tah! :D I haven't seen you in a while! I'm pretty sure you already said thanks somewhere, so, no worries - I'm happy I could help you with it. :) Thanks as well for the recent funds, I can really use those! :D (I literally only had 25k :P) Hopefully you're doing great! :) Bis bald ;)

      That moment when some difficult redstone you've been working on for 2+ hours suddenly disappears when you re-enter the chunks... I hate everything right now.

        I know what caused it too: I accidentally logged into the world I was working in with my alt. From that point on, it stopped saving the chunks... -_- it was really weird, I went into a minecart away from where I was working, and immediately back, and then everything was gone... Quite odd.

        So, if you ever accidentally log into a world you're already working on in another client, leave the world on both clients immediately, and you should be fine. :)

      You might think that Minecraft doesn't use that much resources... I have an i7 3770k at 4.4 GHz, and it's literally using ALL of the processor as I have 5 Minecrafts opened... lolwat http://puu.sh/DeAla/4d8434f238.png
