  1. Did a 200km bike ride yesterday, my body is ruined. Tomorrow I am marshalling at the site. My body will be more ruined. Take that, body.
  2. Great news. My site opened back up on the 18th and we had 200 people. It was busy, I was nervous, the team were rusty but I think we did a good job. Now we have to put that behind us and get ready for 200 more people on the 2nd.
  3. Ate a big pile of chocolate. Built a Lego Articulated Dump Truck Now playing DnD with my amigos. Lots of things to be happy about.
  4. 1, I am not a doctor. 2, This tastes bad. 3, It hurts when you do it. That said, if there is a hole in your tooth, chew an asprin into the hole. It forms a decent cap on the hole, hurts really badly for a bit then provides relief. Remember: 100% Asprin *nothing else* - Ginge is not a doctor.
  5. That's less than 1 percent. A tiny tickle on the hop will get you back under that. If it happens again.
  6. How close to being "in" normal range is your 105? I don't know the rules there. Usually we have a bit of a 5% margin for players we know who can be trusted not to be a bell end. The other thing to consider is that if it is only just over is that you can wind the hop on a bit, it'll slow the bbs down and overhop them. It's worth a go if it's only a handful of fps.
  7. Well, my stuff is on its way back to Belgium because DPD told me to pay the VAT after they sent it back for non payment of the VAT.
  8. Dpd. Today (the 16th) I got an email (my first from them) telling me that if I didn't pay the charges on my parcel by the 15th (yesterday) they were going to return it. Bit cheeky. Big VAT bill too, 280 quid Lego model from Belgium, 4% duty on the value of the item then 20% VAT on the value of the item, packaging, postage and duty (that's paying tax on tax, government - *albatrosses*) comes to 70 quid. Not going to matter if they just send it back the day before asking me to pay though.
  9. Standard. I ordered a load of Lego bits so I have spend the last two hours counting parts to confirm everything came. Counted 1500 so far. Three times that in the post. Oof.
  10. Sweet. I taught my wife to save an email attachment to Google Drive. Great success.
  11. That's positive at least. You could stain them whatever colour you like. The grain won't be right but they'll look great.
  12. Could you get someone to 3d print you a set? Paint them yourself, I know you have the skills to do that...
  13. Right. Enough moping around. This is the happy thread. Gunmane, focus on a small, significant goal that you can achieve. Something simple. You are watching streamers right? Nothing wrong with that. What kind of games do you like? I really like watching DarkViperAU, he is a GTAV streamer, right now he is trying to play through the whole single player campaign without being damaged in any way. At the moment his PB is 1 death. He's intelligent, articulate and entertaining. He uploads his VODs to Youtube and the editing is good and pretty funny. This is his 6:27 speedr
  14. It's a feeling I am familiar with. Many of my friends were smack enthusiasts at university and that has a pretty high mortality rate. A few car accidents, household accidents, enemy activity etc. It's hard not to feel strange when confronted by our own mortality. Maybe you'll die tomorrow, maybe you have 60 years left in you. Don't hold back.
  15. I haven't posted in a while. Mostly because I haven't had anything to be that happy about. Or sad. Or anything really. Trying to focus on small wins, my wife got me a bunch of bits to make these little fellas:
  16. Been in a waiting list since February. Got my Valve Index yesterday. Squeeeeeee
  17. Depending on the mail system it will be time received, not time sent. Things can get held up in the system for all sorts of reasons. Mail with multiple Cc recipients can all show different times under those circumstances.
  18. Still hungry. We're opening the site on the 24th of July. My neighbour died of COVID-19. I have lost a hair over 5kg. End of update.
  19. I am on a diet, Now I am fat and hungry all the time. Bleh.
  20. My life hasn't changed much either. That isn't inherently bad, it just means that the people I care about are almost all online friends so the way I interact with that hasn't changed. I don't really like people or the outernet so being in the house is fine to me. You seem to have a lot on your mind, look if your boss has made you do a new job with no training that essentially absolves you of any responsibility for mistakes. I find that makes me less stressed. If I mess up, it's their fault for not training me. A fact that can (if necessary) be argued in court. I hope y
  21. That sound you hear is me retching. CTRL+W, close tab. Read it, close it. I have an encrypted drive and any time my laptop is out of my sight I turn it off so that will never happen to me but. You are sick. The reason the Tab thing happens to me is that I never log into Youtube, I don't have any subscriptions. I save the "Videos" page of any channel I like in a OneTab and check them once a day. Never miss a video, never comply with Google.
