  1. LB log - 2017 Week 33

    Her car needs a repair which is going to be either $800 or $1100. I think this puts us in the market for another car to be purchased and to cycle her current one out.

    Houseflies. Every year it's a problem. This year it hasn't been so bad overall, but this past week it's become like it gets at least once per year where I have to kill a dozen after they've accumulated while I'm asleep or at work. I really wish I could get to the root of the problem on this.

  2. LB log - 2017 Week 32

    Today is a very rare Saturday night off, which I have taken for a relative's birthday party. She was talking about it months in advance, and I think carried distinct recollection of me not being there last year. It turned out well for us to be there this year. We arrived as cake was served and most of the people who weren't immediate family were leaving, and we were able to enjoy some time in the pool afterwards. Theoretically, after playing songs after writing this post, I could have some time ...

  3. LB log - 2017 Week 31

    The database was down, guys. It was down. The database.

    This week's haul: Chessie System hat. The hat I was wearing for work was something that I found on the ground when I was working at a mail facility so many years ago. By this point there were visible chemical stains on it, which is impressive given that the hat itself is black (or at least was black, and has now become ever so slightly lighter to look something like a dark navy blue). It was time. Oil and oil filter, the car's ...

  4. LB log - 2017 Week 30

    At work, there have been a few people who were forced to work an extra day during this week and only have one day off. I wasn't one of the chosen. I don't particularly look forward to having such a thing imposed on me, though I wonder if it will come to that point, given that my days off are during the week when work volume usually isn't very high and there are more people scheduled in general. I've thought about it before, and perhaps all the more so now, I should probably just stick with the schedule ...

  5. LB log - 2017 Week 29

    This week has thankfully been rather non eventful, at least as of Friday morning. No new four figure expenditures, no traffic incidents, and so on. I appreciate it. Of course, in writing this Saturday morning, I do so after bending the latch release on the unit good enough that it needs to be replace. At least it wasn't enough so that I couldn't wedge myself out from the last move. I almost had a good Saturday. Almost.

    I ordered a portable printer and it arrived on my first day off ...

    Road construction is back in full force as of the start of my work week. The commute into the garage took me an additional half hour due to a bridge being out. The warning signs which they do have up about a road closure was something which I thought applied to a road in a nearby forest reserve area since that's what was first to be torn up after the notices were set in place, so there was little surprise and much aggravation upon realizing that they did mean for it to apply to the main road instead. ...

    One of the things I forgot to mention in last week's haul was a new box fan which didn't come with a power cord. It uses the standard double-round AC input like that which we all know from various Playstation systems and the like, and despite the shape working, I still had to use a drill to whittle away some of the plastic casing inside the connection on the fan itself to get the power cord to actually fit. The fan works very well with that all in place, I'll give it that much. Alas, that fan is ...

  8. Undertale

    I played this demo a year ago when Finch posted about it, and I was interested. It sounded neat, and I was intrigued about how the game changes files and changed depending on how you played.

    As I mentioned on the completion thread, I finally played through it this weekend and I was extremely disappointed. I don't like to talk negatively about things I don't like because OPINIONS, and why would I try to dissuade people from trying something they may like, so I'll just spoiler and list ...

    Halftime, 2017.

    This week's haul. Used iPhone 5c, for work; as mentioned last week, it had to be an Apple product for these various apps to work, and that was the cheapest option based on what we already pay for on phone lines as well as new equipment to purchase. In the few days I've had it, it has indeed proved to be rather valuable. New sewage sump pump. Long story short on this is that nothing catastrophic happened but the signs were there that the time for replacement was imminent. ...

    Boy I guess it's a good thing I wasn't planning on doing any exercise this morning.

    For the second time in less than a year, my phone was stolen. The more positive aspect to this second incident is that it was only my phone itself which was taken and nothing else, so hooray for not having a wallet gone and a not-cheap MP3 player taken. The bizarre aspect to it is that it happened while I was at work. I get to the "main" facility of sorts, drop the trailer I brought in, then ...

  11. Kaiser Knuckle: General smackdown by Wulong (FIRST TRY, 1CC) & Li-hua



    Maybe the "perfect soldier" is not so perfect.

    Someone in Korea has cleared Kaiser Knuckle on a single credit... on VERY HARD difficulty. The General gets put in his place thanks to a grave flaw in his AI. Playing as Wulong, if you use a Ryuukizan (f,d,df+P), there's a good chance that he'll try to counter with a front kick. Counter that attempt with a crouching strong kick. Kick ass. Repeat.

    Surely there must be a similar trick ...

  12. LB log - 2017 Week 24

    Out of time. Spent the two days off with a lot of social activities with family and friends, and there's not much news to report there otherwise.

    Song sessions at home were nice, yet again with a fortunate trend in seeing a lot of miss decreases this time around.

    Coming next week - hopefully more news on other business actions and an arcade session where I can actually clear out the next dojo thing in Sinobuz.

    Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. Double play. "@" ...

  13. LB log - 2017 Week 23

    It took a few hours of trial and error to finally get a NoteTab Pro script to do what I wanted it to do, and I'm not especially happy with the script becoming a giant pile of redundant If clauses to get it done, but it does indeed work as I had hoped. For the much cleaner version I envision, the script would have to simply recognize variable values inserted into other variable names and operate from there, and I did get a few test lines to do exactly that otherwise, so I don't understand why I wasn't ...

    On my third day off for this holiday weekend, I applied for a trademark. The Patentn Office makes it clear in no uncertain terms that the process for approval requires several months and has many ways in which the entire process could be rejected, with no hope for appeal or refund of the filing fee (weighing in at a healthy $300). It needs to be done, though, and I'm fairly certain that I've followed the instructions as indicated and have something in mind which is unique and not in conflict with ...

    I was fully intending to be there either way, but I did wonder if it would have felt awkward to do so in light of the theme of it being behind "Safety Appreciation". Little did I know that attending would have paid off quite so literally.

    Having the leisure of choice for my days off this weekend, I elected to indulge in sleep on my days off. Sleep I did. I enjoyed a thoroughly sloven ten hour slumber on both days. Yes, this is very riveting news.

    Progress ...
