      So I've been transitioning our entire media collection to a Plex server. Two really big comments:

      1. Plex is the only system I've found with robust parental controls that work in every possible way. User profiles with PINs. Broad rating level controls. The ability to change controls for individual movies/shows without having to change their given rating. A library that only shows the content available for the user. Broad cross platform compatibility. It's my new gold standard for parental controls.

      2. Good lord, formatting media to work on a Plex server is time consuming. Some of it goes very quickly, but the stuff that's left after the easy part...yikes. And if you have stuff that's not in one of the TV or Movie databases (for example, workout videos), good luck making it work on the first try.

      Decided to let my 7 year old try Destiny. It's surprisingly stressful watching him play, given his #1 tactic is "run over and punch all the things."

      Why so many 5's?

      Answered: Jun 2, 2016

      54555 was the number randomly assigned to me by AOL in like 1995. It just kinda stuck.

      ...and no one seems to be asking me any questions.


      In 2006, that would be complete crazy talk. 2006 me would be very confused, and probably think 2016 me is old. Also, 2006 me would be very confused by the words "iPhone" and "Lyft."

    • That time I wrote a children's book...

      8 months ago

      dark54555

      So, I co-wrote a children's book. It's available on Amazon. It's called "The Elf Bucket."

      Little background: when I was 2, my parents invented a game (of sorts) where the "elf" visited every night and hid a small bucket with a treat in it. Once my sister was old enough, she played the same game, which also made its way to my younger cousins. Now, I do the same thing for my kids. More or less, it's an interactive advent calendar.

      So, about a year ago, I said to my grandmother that we should turn it into a story. She's a phenomenal artist, and did all of the drawings in the book (by hand, in colored pencil; there's no Photoshop shortcuts in the art).

      Anyway, for those of you with kids (or nieces and nephews, young cousins, young siblings, etc.) of the Santa age window, I thought you might be interested. It's a fun way to help them pass some of the time waiting for Christmas.

    • Halo 5

      10 months ago

      dark54555

      Friends at 343...I think you've lost a fan at this point. Nothing personal, but both Halo 4 and 5 have been a disappointment. I won't continue to pile on at the issues with Halo: MCC. And I've said my thoughts on 4 in the past.

      5...it's not even Halo anymore. It's twitchy. Like Timesplitters on the PS2 level twitchy. It's squad based. The core series has always been about Master Chief...primarily as a lone wolf. That's his thing. And it makes a whole lot less sense that he'd take the loss at the end of 4 and suddenly go start hanging out with friends. The plot was weak. I mean, I get what you were trying to do. And I get it; the original Halo trilogy was one of the best game trilogies of all time. It may have been impossible to follow. I won't spoil the ending, but it's easy to see coming.

      I was a plot first, campaign first, multiplayer second player for Halos 1-3. The campaign has lost my interest in Halo 5 by the second mission. It so lost me that I just read the spoilers because who knows when I'll bother to spend the time to finish it.

      I'll probably give Warzone a shot. But I'm not optimistic.

      So read this.

      It's a sentiment I agree with. The Tea Party/Evangelican alliance isn't sustainable, and it isn't good policy. Hell, it's ruined the basis for the entire party. I'd want to see numbers for some of those proposals, but I'm not overwhelmingly against any of it.
