Ditto! I'm so glad you were first, because Amoebic was able to steal your jersey template for mine.
I'm also super happy that they were able to stream the creation on Twitch! Check it out!

Sweeeeeeeet! Hockey rules. The Royal Meebs hits another home run.

I've got 200+ unique personal fart recordings on my phone and have shared them via text. I feel so immature, so 12 years old, and so accomplished at the same time.

*edit*
Now I have to convert them from amr or avr, whatever they are on my phone so I can share them more.

My pungent eminations must be recorded if not for stench, but for the auditory pleasantness of it all.

This you?

No way, man! It's art, not science!

Hah ok. Up to 1.2k now.

Just a reply to a thread with 50k likes about a nonsense article. Posted the same picture I shared in D&D images here last week that got a whopping 15 likes on this forum.

That's basically everyone who reads D&D! Nice job.

When my Boomer Dad likes one of my super progressive/anticapitalist tweets. There are a few good ones left, and my Dad is one of them.

After 16 years, time to say goodbye to Deionarra as my avatar. Welcome me, thanks Amoebic!

Now Raajt is sexy!

I got more Leverage today! Only eight episodes and no Nate, but Noah Wyle is doing a great job so far.

I need to go back and finish the last season.
I also love the one music video that Christian Kane made that my head cannon says is in the Leverage universe.

Yeah you're right. Sorry about that.

Ugh. Grow up.

Love is a bit strong but we'll go with it.

My fitbit stopped working over the weekend - no idea why but the battery has stopped charging. I've had it about 18 months.

I called fitbits customer service department expecting to be given fairly short thrift, but after speaking to the guy on the phone he confirmed the problem, confirmed its still under warranty and is sending me a brand new replacement at no extra cost.

I know its a corporate issue but feels like a win to me. Good customer service needs to be called out at times as much as bad.

Yes, yes it does!

Thanks so much for posting this, I had no clue this was out. My wife & I started watching Sunday. As huge fans of the original, we are definitely enjoying it..

Oops wrong thread

My new PC actually plays X4 [email protected]!!!!!!!!

Comic strips might deserve its own thread. Has anybody been following Berkely Breathed's Bloom County with Opus trying to help Hobbes find Calvin using the Banana Jr. computer? The most recent one the search got a hit! Wonder what Calvin has been up to, and what his last name is?

Dunno! But I’ve been listening to Aaack Cast It’s a podcast about the Kathy comic strip and it’s creator. It’s quite good, which isn’t surprising since it’s written and hosted by Jamie Loftus.

Best of luck, my friend!

Why yes, my aftermarket tachometer is held to the steering column with a hose clamp, thank you for noticing

Reclining on a garden chair, in the shade at the bottom of my garden, listening to the latest MinnMax podcast, with little Flynn (aka Terry (called such by my neighbour because he’s chocolate and orange) aka Flynn the merciless ‘Best cat in the North of England’ curled up beneath my slightly suspended feet.

Somehow, when I moved from Apple Podcasts to Overcast, I missed one essential podcast: Aria Code. For some reason I thought of it today, realized it was not in my list, immediately added it, and discovered that I had missed a whole bunch of new episodes!

The latest episode analyzes an aria from the last act of Verdi's La Traviata. The same aria that made me cry buckets when I saw that opera a few years ago. Guess what: I cried again. Although this time the fact that I suspect I've been ghosted may have had some part to play in it.

I'm hopeful that movie theaters will still be open this fall when the Met's Live in HD presentations resume. I miss opera.

Thanks for the recommendation

We were sitting there watching the olympics this morning and one of the announcers was Australian, with a thick(but very pleasant accent). My youngest, upon hearing this accent, shouts, "Oi! I'm Australian! Pass me a bottle o' water!" in a thick, but not very good, mock Australian accent.

It was really funny and random. Apparently Aussies like water.

We do enjoy water.
