Hmm, wondering if moving to Czech republic is a good idea. Well, for someone how has no f'n clue about the language.

Aren't you from Finland? What's wrong there right now?

No, I'm in the US. I don't have enough of anything to claim citizenship elsewhere though.

Honestly I'd take Finland. I'm close to Canada, but I'm not sure that's far enough away.

Czech thing came up on a tech support call.  TV station over there didn't know how to computer.  Had me wondering if I can pull enough strings on the client to get a job there, but you know, the whole getting there.

I have no hope of leaving, so I'm gearing up to die absolutely disgracefully.

And reality wants to give me a head start: the unit below us, being renovated, has a gas leak. A big, stinky gas leak.

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

Yeah, noted.

You need to start a contest. I'm sure you can convince your neighbors to join in. Find some wood axes and chainsaws in the back of the shed, and so forth. You can get creative with it. You can get others creative with it. Add an "inventiveness" category, a "style" category, a "hold my pint" category...

you know, it's funny -- little bit of forum history about this smiley:


the filename is roglol.gif


the reason is because, in my first year on the forum, you made some comment about how the smiley guy is you.

I saved it and gave it that filename during some WOMP project where I was grabbing smileys for some other purpose. So Roglol is Roger Lolling.

At some point, a bunch of forum stuff got corrupted and I handed my archive of emotes to Faust... so now it has the name I gave it in like 2008.

Had to have the brain tickled, thankfully came back negative, but it was three days of being locked in a room away from herself and the baby, which is a lot of hard work.

Glad your brain isn't ticklish. It would leave us poor suuferers even deeper in the shit . . .

I felt pretty dumb when I went up for it, I thought they just swab the inside of your cheek, its quite invasive, still better to know sooner than spend two or more weeks of uncertainty  otherwise

Can't be too careful when you have sprogs. Also, since its covid, wanting to make it past Xmas is an important consideration
