Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

I have never cared for Vegas. All of the crowds, noise, and lights makes for a grumpy me. But, for whatever reason, everything that I am associated with that offers any sort of membership perks includes trips to Las Vegas prominently, to the point that I have had to threaten to leave said membership...

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

Had a graduate student come up last week to discuss the possibility of working on a project with some of the data that my team has generated over the years. They showed up half an hour late, and throughout the two hours they were here consistently had trouble keeping on track, and demonstrated an un...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

It's rather sad when you realise that you're better at troubleshooting a thing than someone who does it as a job. My wife recently completed a copy-editors certificate, and was annoyed when I caught errors in a document that she had missed. It didn’t help when I pointed out that the only reason tha...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

This type of old school message board has definitely been largely supplanted by reddit, instant messenger servers, Twitter, etc. Lord Foul complained about my phones automatic sig so I changed it. - Sent from jizzmop 4040 using bollocks I really miss the lively message boards of the late 90s and ea...

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

Not only is my state on fire yet again, but I have been volunteered to support the fire team, despite the fact that I am the only member of my team that has consistently supported fire recovery work without support or backup over the last few years (upper management consistently set up rotating team...

Re: Hail All Hallows!

And now Happy All Saints' Day! Who is the mortal hero who most inspires you to be better? One of mine is the uncle whose memorial service we attended when we visited Manitoba last fortnight. He was gentle, helpful, willing to listen to different opinions, and always believed the best he could of ot...

Re: Got an allegedly true ghost story?

I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me before, but I have another story worth sharing. I bought a house about three years ago - a nice, if rather weird, house that had previously been used as a hospice and elder care facility. When the realtor showed it to us, she notified us, as required by state...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

Tombombodil’s little paragraph about Lord Fowl’s comments in his phone’s sig line always looks like a continuation of the text above it, which always leads to me reading it as part of the post, which in turn leads to me being amused by the goofiness of how that changes the post. It’s unintentional, ...
