    • Jalnor's Achievables

      4 years ago

      Jalnor

      Up until some time in 2008, I ran my own "underground" system of Achievements, a little bit like you might get on the Xbox. Initially, this was just for fun, but it became fairly competitive... and was always fun to run.
      So now that I have a little bit more free time without much budget to be away from my computer... I'm bringing it back. But I lost the data for the old system when my laptop died and subsequently vanished in a move. I don't know who Achieved what or when, I only have the information that I published. That means I can't just pick up the old one where I left it off. Also, some of the Achievements' purposes have lapsed; they refer to things that just don't happen any more, like the one for joining the USSRvB's avatar trend, or auditioning for a Wraith part in Stargate New Flight... so this is all new. All scores are reset, anything you got before that's still available is yours to get again.

      If you're wondering how it works, doing certain things on the site earns you these and, because there's always one Achievement Whore, most of them would be almost impossible to do on purpose. So just carry on about your life on the site and you might end up, like Shura did before for a long time, having the highest score without expecting to get any at all. Achievements so far unlocked by someone are listed below:

      All times are in GMT. You can only get each Achievement once, just like on Xbox. Only posts made on the Rooster Teeth website on or after the 15th of May 2015 are eligible for Achievements.
      I'm working on a web page that might eventually give everyone a look at all their Achieving and, before anyone asks, I am using a spreadsheet to run all this. All I need to do is keep putting the dates and times into the right cells and it'll keep spitting out the up-to-date list perfectly smiley8.gif

    • Human rights. Really.

      4 years ago

      Jalnor

      The UK's "new" government wants to "combat extremists" by repealing the Human Rights Act.

      Just think about that on its own for a moment.

      For your information, here is what that Act outlines:

      smiley9.gif Right to life
      smiley9.gif Freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment
      smiley9.gif Right to liberty and security
      smiley9.gif Freedom from slavery and forced labour
      smiley9.gif Right to a fair trial
      smiley9.gif No punishment without law
      smiley9.gif Respect for your private and family life, home and correspondence
      smiley9.gif Freedom of thought, belief and religion
      smiley9.gif Freedom of expression
      smiley9.gif Freedom of assembly and association
      smiley9.gif Right to marry and start a family
      smiley9.gif Protection from discrimination in respect of these rights and freedoms
      smiley9.gif Right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
      smiley9.gif Right to education
      smiley9.gif Right to participate in free elections

      Seriously dangerous stuff, right? That's totally how the terrorists win, isn't it?
      a-frog-saying-no.jpg

      This is a European convention (not from the European Union, don't even mention that) written after World War 2, with a lot of input from Britain, to ensure that the atrocities of Nazi Germany could never happen again. It was copied over to UK law specifically in 1998 and the EU also separately enshrined it in law for all member states at some point.
      Leading the cheer for its removal is the Daily Mail - better known to many as the Daily Fail. Its current owner is the great-grandson of the man who owned it during World War 2 and wrote this:
      ralph-miliband.png
      Their views aren't all that dissimilar - the modern Daily Fail quite likes UKIP and the BNP, whose ideologies are similar to that of Hitler, except that Hitler was economically slightly right-of-centre, the BNP are somewhat left-wing and UKIP are as right-wing as the Tories themselves (which is probably because they're composed mostly of the more-fascist Tories) all with one thing in common. While their economic policies vary, their social policies are all fascism. And they all want the Human Rights Act gone.

      This cannot be allowed. Without these rights guaranteed by law, any dissent of any kind can be squashed. Given that this government (when in coalition with a party of weasels that abandoned all its principles to support them) placed elected officials on an extremism watch list for taking part in protests against fracking and against cuts to essential services (we're talking phone-tapping, cop-following-you, identify-your-associates extremism watching here) and how they reacted to a newspaper publishing leaked data on their crimes (agents showing up at the newspaper's offices and trying to take away all their hard drives) I think it's safe to conclude that they fully intend to use such a repeal to end all dissent against them.

      A petition doesn't really seem like enough. But for now, it's all we've got. So spread the word and let's get this petition in the public eye. The puppet show news media will do its best to smear the petition when it can't avoid mentioning it... so let's make sure the truth is known by as many people as possible before that.

    • We are fucked

      4 years ago

      Jalnor

      There are no words for just how completely screwed the UK is. If there's anything left to save in five years, you bet I'll be standing and I plan to have a lot of people standing with me... but for now, we need a new plan. Ways to mitigate the devastation this bunch of self-centred genocidal loonies are going to inflict on the lives of anyone earning less than a million a year. Suggestions?

    • Autodesk Inventor temp job, UK

      Jalnor

      Any of you guys in/near the West Midlands any good with Autodesk Inventor and looking for work? I know of a temp job going that I actually can't afford to take due to distance, but a recommendation from me would be welcome.

    • UK election news

      4 years ago

      Jalnor

      Well, we're now past the point where I would have time to get to Abingdon and withdraw the cash to hand it over to get my name on the ballot paper. It's now officially impossible. (If you're going to say it was anyway, don't bother - the naysayers have been the single biggest obstacle from day 1. Few in number, but bloody loud about it)

      To those of you who did give it your all to support me, you can't imagine how grateful I am. I only wish it could have been enough. Donations towards my deposit will be refunded in full shortly and I owe you all a drink and a hug.

      If there's anything left to save at the next election, you bet your ass I'll be trying again. In the meantime, look long and hard at your local candidates, find out who they are - not just their names and their rhetoric, find out WHO they are - and then vote for whoever among them would best represent your interests rather than his/her own. Remember there's no such thing as a wasted vote. We can't have the kind of revolution I wanted, but we can still have some kind of a revolution and it just might be enough to buy us five years.

    • Insomnia

      Jalnor

      Don't try it at home!

      ...also, I've less than a day now to gather £500 cash. Any suggestions?

    • We're back!

      4 years ago

      Jalnor

      The fundraising hasn't ended - it's merely changed format! If you pledged before, I'd be hugely grateful if you could donate at least some of that via the link...
      Also, let's have one final push of social media sharing, to get the word out!
      priorityparty.uk/fund2 is the URL!

      Got a new problem. The crowdfunding site won't let me run a 1-week campaign.
      I need a new plan. Right now. smiley5.gif

    • Another week

      4 years ago

      Jalnor

      My crowdfunding campaign is getting another week, but it means a reset, so existing pledges will be wiped clean tonight. Those of you lovely people who already pledged, could I be cheeky and ask you to prepare to try again in 24 hours, please? The URL might change, but my shortened URL won't smiley8.gif
      This will be the absolute last chance - if I don't make the funding target on this one, I'll have 48 hours to find the money by other means. Even selling my car won't cut it, though... it's only worth £350 and I'll need it for getting about the various villages to do my political campaign. So I need you all to make sure you spread the word tomorrow - pass it on and please, dig deep in your pockets and see if you can come up with some change to pledge. If every one of my active RT friends pledged the minimum amount, I'd be 20% of the way there and, since I know a couple of you pledge rather more than that, it would only leave Facebook, Twitter and the local adverts to pick up the slack - and that should do a fair bit of good now that it's starting to get about.
      If I can make that £500 in time to get in my paperwork, I get my name on the ballot paper and I get to go head-to-head with the other candidates (including our current MP) in a couple of public debates over the coming weeks, which I'm really going to enjoy. The other candidates have basically already lost - hardly anyone here will vote for them because they've been fed a lot of propaganda by the local safe party's fanboy news media over the years. (Well, apart from UKIP, but most of the people here see right through them too smiley0.gif ) But people are fed up with the "safe" party too and I have a whole list of things where I can call out Mr. Vaizey and tear him (and his party) to shreds so very politely. With cited sources smiley13.gif

      No-one here watches RvB, they don't know who Tucker is... but that's not going to stop me quoting him. So... I need your top 3 Tucker quotes of all time that can be used against a lying, lazy politician. In polite company. Aaaand... go!

      Yeah, I'm working again, and it's place I can get off from work easily enough. And I should have one of my medical bills payed off fully by then, if not a second, so progress is being had.

      That group should be by invite only. It would make more sense. As it is, it's likely to end up with hords of Random Group Joiners, which are close cousins to RFR'ers.
