    • Achievability: End of an era

      Jalnor

      Some of you might remember how I used to do my own system of Achievements (here) on RT... you might also have been wondering why you haven't seen any in ages. The truth is, I sort of got fed up of doing it, after more than a year.
      So I'm hereby officially retiring it.

      In total, there were 26 Achievements, worth 465 JalnorPoints.
      The top scorer was PsykerKaregg with 125J and 6 Achievements.
      The top Achiever was johnnyricoMC, with 85J and 8 Achievements.
      Only 20 of the Achievements were ever gotten by anyone. Though some of this was due to my laziness.

      (Images are missing below due to an edit glitch, I'll fix this tomorrow)

      The Achievements were:

      Make a post exactly on the hour by the RT clock


      Save a civilian from a Mafia hit while playing as the bodyguard in Waldo's Mafia game or whack a member of the Mafia while playing as the Punisher in Waldo or Data's Mafia game


      Post a link in a forum that leads nowhere


      While playing as a confirmed civilian, find an actual clue that leads to a successful investigation in Waldo or Data's Mafia Game


      Join the USSRvB avatar trend by displaying a correct Soviet flag as your avatar


      Make a post so indecipherable someone other than Jalnor has to ask what that is in English


      Say/do something that qualifies as epic fail


      Say/do something that qualifies as epic win


      Be responsible for someone sending a Flirt Divert e-mail (this was a feature that died the death a very long time ago)


      Uncover all the Mafia while playing as the cop in Waldo's Mafia game


      Use the word "origin" in context within a post


      Post something innocently in a public forum or journal, only to notice too late (or be informed) that it has a second, less innocent, definition


      Alert Jalnor to an Innuendo Bingo post


      Be the last of the civilians in Waldo's Mafia game


      Make a less-than-obvious pun

      Memorable Activist (never made) 50J
      Be the civilian with the most on-topic posts during a round of Waldo's Mafia game


      Show yourself to be worthy of the Grammar Borg by calling Jalnor's grammatical errors


      Be first to get lynched in a round of Waldo or Data's Mafia game


      Submit 3 identical posts with the same time stamp, directly consecutive to each other


      Audition for a Wraith part in Stargate New Flight, either for fun or to take the role


      Find yourself the cause of annoyance in a thread and yet manage to defuse the situation and recover popularity


      Innocently reference waffles without breaking the Waffle Rule


      State something so obvious it qualifies for "no shit, Sherlock."


      When a discussion thread has gone off-topic, say something off-topic that prompts topical responses. Or, make a post in a thread that is both visibly on-topic and also definitely off-topic


      Respond well to Data's "new guy" question


      If anyone badly wants to continue these (administrating the Achievements makes you ineligible to Achieve) then I might consider allowing you to take over... but it's quite the sizeable database to manage.

      Edit: Auditions are closed.
      vatbanner1.png

      I don't know how many of you have seen this Soviet variant of the Drunk Tank that I thought up on the spur of the moment about 8 weeks ago, but it's caught on fairly well... there are more readers than one would expect for these things and it's gaining new viewers all the time.
      Anyway, we've been running auditions for one or more additional members of the Vat... so far, with some epic answers and some epic fails. We're going to shortlist candidates from the auditions as soon as the latest Vat goes live (about 9 or 10 hours away) and then run a final question for the shortlist - there will then be a public/private combo voting system (yet to be exactly determined) for determining who gets in.
      Basically, the more hilarious your answer, the more likely you are to get in. There's still time if you want to try! (Question 1 is in the first post, but there's a second question on about page 3)

      I'm also the cop in the latest round of the Mafia Game, even though I didn't sign up (thanks, Sock...), so I'll be about slightly less than expected. And I have to write an investigation tonight smiley7.gif Luckily, I know more or less what I'm writing, just gotta do it.

      Stay tuned for a long-awaited announcement about the Jalnor Achievements, probably just after the Vat article goes live.

    • 2010, bitches!

      So, as of the other day, I am now running AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite 2010 at work. The license also allows me to have it installed at home, so guess what smiley0.gif
      Upgrading from AutoCAD Architecture 2008 and Revit 2009 was a bit of a big step (and there's a new drawing format this year, so I need to have an addendum in my e-mails to warn everyone to specify a version when they ask for a drawing) but I'm getting the hang of it... a couple of things I used to do in AutoCAD don't work any more and a lot of the interface has changed, but I got training on the 2009 version, so I have an idea of what's going on.
      I caught myself saying the strangest thing earlier. In AutoCAD, there's a command called Explode, which allows you to separate any combo object (blocks, dimensions, polylines etc.) into its constituent components. The icon was always a stick of dynamite in the early phase of detonation. Colourful and unmistakeable.
      I tended to use the word "detonate" as the verb for using that command.
      So, today, I decided to explode a couple of blocks and I'm looking about the toolbar. The icon is now a cube with the faces all moving away from each other. I'm sitting there going, "Where the fuck is the detonator?"
      I nearly LOLd in a busy open plan office.

      Anyway, some of you might remember my "list of outstanding tasks" from a while back. I stopped maintaining (and even looking at) that on account of it was depressing me, but I think I should bring it back. Any recommendations on format? (The previous one was a Google Document, but I'm now debating between a Google Spreadsheet or some sort of task app)

      Before I begin, who remembers the Vodka Vat? If you haven't seen it, you need to head over to the USSRvB group for a laugh.
      Anyway, we're looking to recruit one or two new nutcases to diversify our group of ten regulars and we're holding auditions here. Go have a try - the more insane your answer, the better.

      Anyway, a funny thing... for the third day in a row, the various secretaries here are complaining about the temperature in the office. They do that quite a lot, actually, most of the women agree on the temperature here.
      Now, at this point, I'd like you to remember that I'm in Scotland - at the temperature where New York would be evacuated, we're having the last barbecue before it gets cold.
      I'm sitting here in my shirt and tie, with the suit jacket over my chair and a cold drink. The temperature is 21.5 degrees celsius, which I make to be 71 fahrenheit, for you Yanks (By reading the thermometer, not by calculating). The entire secretarial department is complaining about the cold.

      Counter-strike (and CS:Source) are very, very popular games... personally, I think there need to be some CS maps remade in Halo 3.
      Bungie searches have yielded a couple of de_dust remakes, but nothing much.
      What maps would you like to see in Halo 3? (To aid your memory, I'll create some polls for the best in each category) Which Halo 3 maps would you use for them?
      (I've already tried to make de_dust2 in Sandbox and I can tell you it's too small)

      You know, I'd forgotten that a colleague convinced me to sign up on MySpace way back before it was famous.

      I never did anything apart from download his band's music from their page and I wasn't all that enamoured with the site... then, over the following years, it achieved infamy and I generally thought, "yeah, I've yet to hear anything good about it, apart from Michael's declaration that I should sign up." The only other praise for it I ever heard was "it rulz yoo man" or other pure-opinion drivel.
      When Facebook was introducing features that didn't impress me, I was interested to find a group entitled "A plea to Facebook: Don't become MySpace," which was a direct response to those changes.
      So, understandably, my account went unused for literally years. Like, most of the site's lifetime so far.
      This morning or overnight (can't remember/don't care) I received an e-mail from them, informing me that I had a friend request. Didn't recognise the name, but the memory of my account came flooding back.
      After recovering my password (wow, I used the gate system designation for Earth, never used that anywhere else) I responded to the RFR (I probably could have been nicer) and dug up the link to close the account. They presented me with a brief list of options for why I'm closing the account and, when I clicked "bored with it" or "some other reason," a pop-up box materialised, informing me of the best ways to use social networking sites.
      So, once I settled on "bored with it" and clicked the Cancel Account button, I was taken to another page that had some other dren at the top about ways to use the site or something and a text box to type in some comments about why I was leaving.
      I was extremely concise and candid in that. Then I clicked the Cancel Account button. The next page informed me that I would shortly receive an e-mail detailing the next step for cancelling the account. By this point, I was somewhat bored with the cancellation process.
      The e-mail was waiting for me when I switched back to that tab. The next step was to click the "I want to cancel my account" link in the e-mail, which I suppose serves as verification that it is, in fact, me. You'd expect, at long last, that would be it, right?
      Wrong.
      Next is a final declaration that account cancellation is permanent and that, if I've changed my mind, I can simply close the page. So, with ever-waning hope, I click the familiar "Cancel account" button.
      I am then politely informed that my account has been queued for deletion and will be sorted within 48 hours.

      What takes so long about all that?! Dear God. It's as if they'd rather bore me to death than delete my account... not that that surprises me, since one of the many nicknames I've heard for the site is "Suicide Central."

    • Nice day

      10 years ago

      Jalnor

      I hope it's been epically sunny for all of you too... this weekend has been an absolute scorcher here.
      I spent the last couple of days mainly working on the garden, which... well, I have to admit, is pretty lame but has to be done. In fact, it was on the agenda for today as well.
      However... my good friend Helen texted me early this morning, asking if I wanted to go to the cinema after work. I'd neglected to mention I took today off as well... so, in my half-asleep state, over about an hour and 40 minutes (interspersed with falling asleep at least once), I composed a text back explaining that and suggesting we go for a pub crawl round a town half way between our two villages, so that neither of us had to drive.
      No response right away, my guess is that she fell asleep then too. Or her answer didn't arrive, which has happened.
      For those who don't know, Helen has been my best friend since high school... some nine years total now. We were in the Air Cadets together as well for several years and studied in the same class at college for a year too. In the last couple of years, work and the likes (what with her "weekend" having been one day during the week if she was lucky) we didn't get to see each other much. That's all changed since she got a new job, though. They treat her like shit and pay her less, but at least she generally gets 2 days off every week. Until she finds something better. My extended holiday time has helped too bigsmile.png
      For those of you who are predictably wondering whether we've ever been a couple or ever will be or what's wrong... no. We've never been more than friends. It's not that there's anything wrong... I like girls, she likes guys, we have a mutual attraction, but we're happy with our friendship the way it is.

      Anyway, I was in the middle of reading back through my old journals early this afternoon (can't for the life of me remember why) when she texted me again, asking if I was at home. She must have stopped out on the main road to do that and await my reply, because she pulled up outside the house just a minute after I answered.
      We ended up in a nearby recreation park with a big lake and such (and I wasn't allowed to drink in case the only way to park the car involved reversing, which she hates doing lol.png ) enjoying the sun and the view and the exceptionally warm mini-picnic we composed walking round the aisles of Tesco. My bottle of water was actually sitting at about the temperature I prefer to drink coffee lol.png We in Scotland are simply unused to that level of heat.
      I think we must have discussed just about everything that's gone on in our lives recently (and dug through some distant memories, we always enjoy reminiscing about years gone by) before we headed into the next town over for dinner in Pizza Hut (air conditioning and cold apple juice! Win!) before seeing Night At The Museum 2 in the cinema across the road. That film totally, totally rocks - just like Shura recently said elsewhere, I kept waiting for the Egyptian guy to say "Kree!"
      I think I might have overdone the sun a bit, several parts of me (nose, ears, forearms and back of the neck) are stinging a tiny bit and I'm now starting to see some definite red developing on my left arm. But the day has definitely been worth it.
      What have you all been up to in the fine weather?

      So, most of you will have some idea who the Tok'ra are (if not, you need to read my New Flight offshoot story, which I swear I will eventually finish) and most of you will have developed an opinion on the concept one way or the other...
      I think we all know my feelings on the subject, but I've started a thread to try and find out how everyone else feels. Being a group thread, not many individuals see it unless they browse the Stargate group, so I thought I'd mention it to you all here. How do you feel about Tok'ra blending?

      (I bet, if you were asked to guess who would create this thread, you'd have guessed me)
      I know there are a few others out there who have positive feelings for our dual-personality friends, but I also know there are a lot who don't.
      What I'd like to see is how the general spread of the feelings works out.
      In the poll, assume that in all but the emergency situation you have time to get to know the symbiote and decide if you like them first.
