  • I've had some end of week work social calls with colleagues already - I could possibly join later on if there's a game going.
  • I'm up and down every day. I'm lucky to be busy during the day, but the anxiety creeps in quickly in any break. Time spent playing video games as an escape is usually a good proxy for my anxiety level and I've been playing at least 1-2 hours of Doom…
  • Just remembered I need to log in and "purchase" the free PSN titles for March. Shadow of the Colossus will be right after Doom Eternal.
  • Just a quick update as this week's shaken out at work. My main project's team has been cut in half - all outside consultants and off-shore resources are gone save one. The good news is that it's both simplified my schedule (less coordination with In…
  • I recently rewatched that S4 episode as well and I had totally forgotten the Vash twist. Very good stuff. Vash was such a great foil for Picard. This episode was better than the last two episodes, but there was still plenty that I wasn't a fan of. …
  • JaimieT said: This chest pain is, uh... scary. I just want to say, ITT I maintained my right to not be careful, but in reality I was so careful. So, be extra careful if you don't want it! If I have it, I got it from the grocery store, Target…
  • Here Kitty Kitty (Spoilers for Episode 3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCgz9915wHw Edit: YouTube embeds don't seem to be working. Sorry.
  • We watched 3 episodes last night. Holy forking shirt balls - it's just more and more crazy dumped on top of a foundation of insanity and hubris.
  • I have no idea how long I've been listening for. I do remember listening to the Night's Watch - so at least that long. Knowing that the Bald Move team is out there and making their dream a reality is a constant source of good feelings for me. While…
  • We started watching this last night. It's B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Just when you think you've got your head wrapped around the characters and what the story is, it just layers on more crazy and goes off in a whole other direction. It might be more of a Lunch…

  • bizmarkiefader said: Flukes said: DOOOOOOOM! How is it? I've heard a lot of mixed opinions on all of the systems they piled onto it I haven't read or heard any reviews aside from the mentions J&A have given it, so I don't k…
  • DOOOOOOOM!
  • My employer just announced a 20% salary cut across the board along with a 50% cut for executive leadership. The CEO and President are forgoing salary. They're also preparing to put some portion of the salaried colleagues on "furlough" which is basi…
  • Wingspan is a really cool game. I was explaining it to my wife this morning and it's crazy how many mechanics it has. It sounds complicated when you explain it extemporaneously, but works really smoothly when you play.
  • Dee said: Pic didn’t work, @Flukes! I can't see them on my phone, but I can on the full site. Weird. I'll look at it later.
  • A picture from my spot in line to get into Costco this morning. I showed up about 15 minutes before it opened. Even those of us living the bidet life need some toilet paper. We were low enough I was worried about running out this week, but I figu…
  • I checked in on Discord. I'm good for 8cst tonight. 
  • @Garthgou81 I wish there was something we could do to help. I can't begin to imagine how you must be feeling.
  • King's Dilemna looks dope! I started reading the manual inside TTS. I think I'm busy with a Hackathon tonight, but maybe on the weekend we could play this or something?
  • I picked up TTS and have less to do than usual. Anything shaking in here?
  • Dee said: My daughter was in tears a couple of days ago because she had yet another shift cancelled - she works in a restaurant. I really felt for her, but I also had to give her a bit of a reality check. She has about $30k in savings (mostly…
  • At least they're being explicit about the timeline - all of what we're seeing is happening around the same time - so we can focus on this new mystery.
  • JaimieT said: I just got the warning from my boss I'm going to be laid off soon, if things continue (which they will). We supply software to restaurants. We're going to lose all our customers.  Fuck, I'm sorry to hear that Jaimie.
  • As the Canada-US border closes, speculation here is that Trudeau wanted to close the border when he made his announcement yesterday but let Trump save face by making it a "mutual agreement" today. I hope no one dies because everyone has to placate t…
  • Hatorian said: The end is coming.  We have 3 of the 4 horsemen.  Pestilence: the virus famine: Africa getting hit hard by locust and stores running out of food war: always war but North Korea acting really stupid and Iran may explode anytime …
  • Cory said: @Flukes - How are things going out west? I just got back from No Frills, Superstore, and Walmart.  They were all pretty bare, and not many people around. I was out to Costco on Sunday and aside from the few well-publicized shor…
