Vancouver Catch-All

Will be there!

Sorry guys I've been put on call tonight so I gotta stick around home in case I have to work

@Axel That sucks! We'll miss ya!

Me and Mutton are here.

I forgot to share this here when it was officially announced, but Vancouver is getting an Overwatch League team owned by the Canucks. I'm pretty excited for Season 3 when they eventually start playing in Richmond's new gaming arena.

heads up if you've ever bought anything from NCIX:

So that data has already been sold to anonymous buyers? sh*t, well I'm F'd, I've definitely bought a few things from them in the past few years...

August 1, 2018. A rare sunny day in rain ridden Vancouver, British Columbia.

Yeah always rainy in August and not so f*cking Smokey from all the fires that you can’t go outside...

My 4 year old PC and 8 year old laptop were from NCIX. Ugh.

Well, I'm glad I've changed pretty much everything since the last time I bought from NCIX.

Yeah luckily my CC# changed since I last bought something off NCIX.

I’m surprised they took it seriously.

My credit card and address has changed since I last bought from them anyway.

Well sh*t, I don't think there's much I can do about this. My last order before they went bankrupt was just a year ago using the same CC I have now., it doesn't expire until 2021, should I get a new one?

The data was already leaked, so it may be a good idea?
It's not hard to get a new one and they should do it free since it's in their best interest, but also, I dunno the odds that your info would even be used. I use TD and it's pretty good about noticing fraud as well, plus the app they have tells me as soon as any purchase is made, so I've been able to cancel a card after fraudulent use literally 2 minutes after a purchase happened.

Anywho, better safe than sorry?

Yeah I had a chat with my bank and they handled everything, the new card is in the mail. Up until this point I've had the same card number for almost 15 years and in that time I haven't had a single missed payment or fraudulent charge. So this experience is all new and uncomfortable to me.

So I read there was a meme-war that happened between SFU and UBC a while back. I realized that I'm an old person when I had no idea the hell a meme-war was. I also don't use the word "yeet", "RIP", or "F" in conversation.

Was at my parents' place over the weekend and my daughter, without me looking, managed to find a box of my old stuff. She pulled out a UBC Alumni pin that I didn't even know I had.

I do not know nor want to know what a meme war is.

Comin' back for two weeks around the holidays. I'm sure everyone's super busy, but if you're in town and up for a drink or two, shoot me a message!

What a coincidence, I’m going to Japan for the holidays!

The plan is Dec 22nd - Jan 4th.

I'll be around!

Nicole and I will be over just days before that, but I might see if I can jump back over again between Christmas and New Years!

I'd love to see you all again <3

Friendos, I'll be looking for a place to move out to in the upcoming months. My budget is 'as cheap as possible' so if you live in a building with good rates and vacancies or trustworthy folks looking for roommates, please let me know. Or just know of good areas or neighborhoods to check out??

No pets, no smoking, weed ok. Aside from podcasting I'm generally quiet (3 different pairs of daily-used Bluetooth headsets can confirm). Very much keep to myself. Must be transit accessible, metro Vancouver area.

Do you have a specific month or range of months? I'll ask around.

At this point it's unfortunately unknown. Indefinite, likely starting Feb but could get delayed to March. Under $900/mo would be for studios, or $600-$700 for roomies. Dunno if those numbers are realistic, I have no idea how to do this anymore.

I hope everyone is OK after that crazy windstorm. Heading in tomorrow night.

Pretty much all of Abbotsford and Chilliwack lost power for a significant period of time. I had to send my employees home. Someone my apartment only lost power for 30 minutes earlier in the day then was fine.

think Surrey got hit also, my coworker said he had no power all of last night.

Amoebic - if you are moving on your own, sorry to hear that.
