Re: FML general thread [8]

Gorn is pretty horrifying. Even knowing it exists and people like it is horrifying. Oh no, gorn was not the problem - most of it is so crazily over the top that I involuntarily crack up any time I see any of it anyway (a bit like some overly bloody horror movies where the bright red blood pisses al...

Re: FML general thread [8]

While reading a daily comic on Danbooru I noticed the "amputee" tag (and its multi-thousands occurrence). I guess I should've known better than clicking on that tag on a site that also hosts rather risque (and more) drawings... :facepalm:

Re: Computer Stupidities

Most motherboard manufacturers are now in China, expect terse explanations in manuals (in most cases, multilingual) which requires you to Google for technical terms such as UEFI or M2 SSD. OEM versions they make, including server boards, requires more explanation, so thicker manuals, and also have ...

Re: An alternative Serious Discussion

Signed, sealed, and committed. (So far, anyway.) Posted a lovely quote from a lawyer friend of mine explaining the 9th Circuit's decision in simple detail.

I remember getting through the Doom demo (way back in the 1990s) on easy only with a lot of trouble. Playing the game was freaking terrifying.

I think that was the moment I concluded FPS games weren't for me. :lol:

Re: Computer Stupidities

...and then, only a few years later, the first mass-produced Japanese home computers came out, and all that was put into a dedicated ROM board, coupled to a Japanese layout keyboard. Is it just me, or have consumer motherboards been really dumbed down the last couple of years? My most recent PC date...

Re: FML general thread [8]

In the grand scheme, this is a minor thing, and I'll move on quickly. But for me, it's still a shock to the system that is both depressing and infuriating. My socialization analysis circuits go into overdrive trying to make sense of what happened, and get momentarily overloaded by how little sense ...

Re: Computer Stupidities

I usually have in sleep mode when I'm not using it or when I'm at work and then turn it off when I'm done for the night. I honestly thought turning it on and off all the time was the cause of this mess. I still can't believe my hard drive got messes up. I've had it for a little over a year and out ...

^ Over here it is possible to make an appeal with a special commission if questions are worded in such a way that they are open to gross misunderstandings (because that's the teacher's failing). Perhaps something similar is possible at your school?

Re: Question about value of some Eva figurines.

The problem with those figures is that until very recently they were fairly rare in Japan and outside Japan even rarer, but it seems some new old stock was found and since then the prices kinda collapsed. On the other hand, some of the later ones remain less common than the earlier batches. If the o...

How bad does it stink on the exhaust side of your spray boots? Right now I spray models with spray cans on my balcony but I can't do that when the weather's bad or cold (which is 40% of the year or more around here), so I'm thinking of getting myself a spray booth. My problem is that in my 2-room ap...

Re: I need help with the color paints of my Eva-01 model kit resin

It's not actually illegal to import Mr. Color lacquers, you just need all the right paperwork and that generally takes a willing business owner vs a lazy one. Okay, so that's interesting, and might also explain how in Europe we can get certain lacquer paints but not others. The ones we do get need ...
