Saying goodbye

by on

Hello everyone,

So this past Saturday I had to have my dog put down. It was such a fucking shitty weekend. Came out of nowhere and really caught me off guard. She had gotten a bacterial infection and didn't really show symptoms until Saturday. Saturday morning she started to show really bad symptoms out of the blue. The previous night she seemed her usual self and had been active all week. So Saturday was pretty bad. By that time the options were limited and the best thing was to let her go. Just wish I could have done more and has caught it sooner. Know I made the right decision but can't help to feel guilty that I wasn't able to do more.

Let's look back on happier memories.

Do you guys have any funny pet stories? Or maybe cute stuff our pets do or have done.

A decade is

by on

So 10 years have passed since I made this account. Prior to that I had visted this site as a nonmember for years. So have seen gs change pretty much from its start.

10 years is a decade. 1/10th a century.

So where were you guys 10 years ago?

Finishing up HS? Basking in the happiness of getting you phd?

I think I was a Jr.

Tech sure changed rather fast. It's a wonder. Kids now a days are robots.

So what do you think about the change in how tech has been integrated with our lives?

Do you see it as a good thing?

Or are we too connected to the media addled connections?

Name Change

by on

So was on OT earlier and noticed that Hallen seems to have or had his named changed. Happened very recently I guess. Although maybe he just changed accounts. Hold up, am going to go look to see if that's the case after all.

—---------------------------------------

Ok so it does seem like he got a name change. I wonder why and how he was able to do it.

but anyway, what would you change your name to if you had the ability to do so?

Would you?

I like my name. If I was going to change it then would just drop the numbers and capitalize the D.

If there ever came a time when GS implements the ability then there should be a list of previous used names that others can see.

Otherwise people can just abuse the system by trying to fuck wound with people by constantly alerting names. Maybe a limit on how often you can do it.

I wonder how many will drop the _basic if they have it. Guessing not many since it has been with them for like a decade now. Which reminds me this account is nearly a decade old now. Times sure have changed. OT is getting slower and less interesting. Lot of talk about the changes but not enough about the people.

Anyway talk to you guys again soon.

Feel free to discuss the above.

Time table

by on

Was watching this show the other day and there was this teacher who gave his students the wrong test and that got me to thinking back to something from my own life several years ago. In this class there wasn't a final exam so the last exam was the last day of reg classes before the study break and the finals week. Well the class was somehat heavy in reading and remembering various details of different tribes and whatnot. Like a fucking lot of small details tbh. But anyway some students complained that there wasn't going to be a final to some level of the department. Prior to all this the course was based on a few tests and some quizzes on the books we read. But not cumulative. Tests would cover all the material since the last one including the quiz stuff(books).

Anywho some people brought the lack of a final up to whoever . Well we got an email from the prof mentioning that guidelines said a final must be given during the finals week. This was like a couple of days before the last test. And that like everything else would be reweighted. So like half original weight of the reg tests went to this new final. And that the final would be covering all the books and other material. Which was quite annoying given that I had done very well and that the final was going to be really really awful to study for given I emptied my mind of the other old shit. Plus like why spring this at the last second. But the prof forgot to mention that it wasn't mandatory, and that it was an option. Not taking it would result in the original scoring system, but he didn't tell us this till like a few days later since he didn't realize that he didn't mention the actual purpose

Level 58

by on
Didn't know level 57 was so fast. Was at 56 at some point last night. New shows I have been watching. Hannibal started a couple of weeks ago. So far I am enjoying it. Hopefully that remains to be the case. The Americans has been pretty good. Maybe spreading things slightly thin at times. Although the last few episodes have been really good with a lot of stuff going down. The relationship between Phillip and Elizabeth is a bit too back and forth for my tastes.

Bioshock Infinite was excellent.

Mr. X(level 56)

by on
Wonder what video game that is from. Level 55 was super quick. I wonder how long 56 is. Anyone have info on how long each level is? Reminds me, the new epiosdes of Arrested Development are not too far away(Mr F). Am excited. Hopefully they are good. Like that they are releasing all at once. Anyway bye.

So for those who didn't know, I have been unbanned. Also had my polar bear account unbanned too. So have started using this account as my main again. Bye for now.

Building Stories

by on
Got Building Stories by Chris Ware. It is a graphic novel of sorts that is presented in different formats in a box. Been a bit busy, so haven't had time to really start on it. Description: "Building Stories imagines the inhabitants of a three-story Chicago apartment building: a 30-something woman who has yet to find someone with whom to spend the rest of her life; a couple, possibly married, who wonder if they can bear each other's company another minute; and the building's landlady, an elderly woman who has lived alone for decades."
