None of the games at the time that I had needed it, and it was just taking up space in a box.  Space which ended up being used by a scotch bottle.

I threw my controller away when I moved to Switzerland :(

I need to play the original Dark Souls, but modding it for PC seems like an awful lot of effort.

I never bothered to mod Dark Souls, which is odd considering how heavily I modded Skyrim. DS runs fairly ok, and looks fairly good on my PC.

I was under the impression it was all keyboard based without some modding.  I mean, I don't care for the looks so much (though 60 FPS with 2k textures is very nice), but the actual gameplay controls and basic display were a real pain on the PC port?

Have they still got the good air conditioning there?

Not in Arizona, but a product nonetheless of that fine state:

University of California President Janet Napolitano remarked to a fellow regent that they “didn’t have to listen to this crap” as underwear-clad protesters denounced potential tuition hikes during a meeting Wednesday in San Francisco.

UPDATE: Napolitano Apologizes For Calling Disruptive UC Students Protest ‘Crap’

Napolitano was sitting next UC regent Chairman Bruce Varner as a group of about two dozen protesters shouted loudly, denouncing potential tuition hikes when she made the remark, which she may not have known was being recorded.

As the protests began, the cameras stayed on the regents. There was some confusion over what to do. That’s when Napolitano leans over to Varner and said, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her hot mic caught the comment.

And now he's micromanaging me via email.  Thanks Mel, I've never had to look for a missing student after curfew before.  :x

I need at least £1000 in savings and a job and place to move into before I can go.

Besides, as much bullshit as things like this are, the fact is this job is painfully easy and boring 90% of the time, and the only real difficulties are restraining my understandable urge to kill while surrounded by such idiocy.  As such, it gives me something to do and somewhere to live while I get on with the important thing - finishing my course and dissertation, and then applying for PhD programs.

A mixture of initial shock and extreme self-control.

Only got two more weeks until my probation period is over.... He also implied my co-worker, who went to Ireland on her time off and so "unfortunately" missed our glorious Monday meeting, was lying about going there.  Despite seeing her leave from work on Sunday morning with a suitcase.  Not to mention the email sent nearly two weeks ago, before the meeting date was set.

And in other interesting news, I discovered the drunken student who assaulted me is actually only 17 years old.  Meaning, he never should have been here in the first place.  Meaning, he was removed not because of the assault on Saturday night (as I was led to believe), but because of the liability of having an unsupervised student of that age on the premises.  Had that not been the case, I question whether or not he would have been asked to leave at all.

I just had my line manager take my hand and "jokingly" slap it, like you would with a naughty child.

Dear fucking God this place is putting my poker face to the test.

"Them things are gonna kill you," Virgil said.

"Oh heavens," Abner said, "That might cost me my eventual, inevitable appointment with The Undertaker and his pet rope."

"Why?" The Kid asked.  "You done something?"

"Does it matter?"  Abner smiled, the smile not reaching his eyes, "Eventually, we will all hang on that rope, for reasons real or imagined, on accusation alone."

Hell, I know that feeling every night I go to work.  As, I imagine, you do too.

Yup, and NATO too.

Which is another reason we should be looking very suspiciously at Orban and his friendship with Putin. 

I think Israel, which has previously had good relations with Hungary, will also become concerned...especially if Jobbik are now in the coalition.  They've previously tolerated Orban, though not without a certain level of unofficial suspicion...but this could be a red line.  Jobbik are one of the best organised fascist groups in Europe, with strong links to Hungarian nationalist paramilitary groups.  Oh, and close links with Russia, of course.

I'm not saying we necessarily should be going all "colour-coded revolution" here...I'm just saying it wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea.

Yeah.  Them and Jews.

Europe is, as the article relates, doing fuck all about this.  America has at least imposed some measures....our failure to deal with Hungary should be a stain on the Union, if not for the fact there are now so many stains on the Union it's like one big stain at this point.

Hah, they said the same thing about Inquisition....although it looks like most of the patches have fixed that terrible PC port.

Which reminds me, I still need to do a playthrough of that.  I think I had the Shadowplay settings as good as they can I'll try that this weekend.

Yeah, PS4 exclusive.  Playstation seem to be getting the actually good exclusives, between that and The Last of Us.  I'm still more annoyed by exclusives than I am tempted to buy a PS4 though.

I need to play the original Dark Souls, but modding it for PC seems like an awful lot of effort.
