      I'm going to confess to not having seen most of the content from people I watch, on account of the fact that while I was too busy to be here constantly, a lot of alerts were accruing and I only clicked a few of them then got impatient and dismissed the lot. I see there are still some annoying gaps in the site coding, but I hope that will change sooner rather than later.

      I'm no longer employed... that ended unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago, partly because I improved processes to the point where, during a lull of incoming work, they incorrectly thought didn't need as many staff (and who gets laid off? Temps, of course... especially temps who don't know when not to say things to people - long story) but, on the plus side, I think I could actually make a career out of doing that, since I always start analysing and improving on processes I observe. Aaaaand I can get political again, so watch out for that :-p

      I just got an invoice for sponsorship a couple of days ago and then my star vanished. WTF?

      ...about the job. The permanent posts have been provisionally announced (to be finalised on the 28th) and it's expected that I'll get one (as agency staff, I'll have to apply/interview etc. but the senior people who know me are so impressed with me that I'll have passed the interview before I even apply) aaaand there's no "no politics" clause on it as it's not a politically sensitive post - apparently, the agency made a mistake in having me sign that.

      Buuuut it's only a 20k wage. I'll need at least another 4k a year on top of that just to tread water here.

      And bumping into the walls of the new house has commenced. Half the doors won't open and I feel like I'm on the NCC-1701-A.

      But you know what? I have bigger problems. I just updated Avast and now, suddenly, Firefox doesn't like the security certificates for Google, Facebook or... *drum roll* ...Avast.

      I can't get into these sites now. This is completely fucked up. I use Gmail, which means I can't get into my e-mail. I use Google fucking Calendar. I use Google Maps.

      Even if I could stomach Bing, I'll bet a tenner to each of you that it'd get the same problem.

      That pretty much sums it up actually. Canada and U.S are pretty much the best options for me

      Actually, Let's put it this way....I have a 90% better chance of going if it's in the U.S 1,0000% chance if it's in cali, 105% if it's in Oregon or Ohio. And others 90%. I don't got the money to go over seas. I really don't.

      With enough heads up, I should be good for just about anywhere. Granted if it's outside the US, I'll need to grab a passport as I don't already have one.

      I can't go if it's abroad, and it seems most likely that it will end up that way.

      I wish I could go, but I really just have too much going on this summer, what with the moving to another country and all.

      Why the hell would you want to hold a commie con in a country that's:
      on the brink of political crisis
      knows high inflation & taxes (well, not as high as Sweden but still)
      Is filled with frogs
      is chock full of speed cameras
      nothing is in English, no English road signs, nothing.

      I just need to graduate, get my drivers license and a long-term job.

      Unless it is here, and only a weekend long, I can't go. I've got work and I'll be moving in to a new apartment towards the end of July.

      I doubt I will be, I barely even some to the site these days so I don't think I could come and meet people from it. I will still help in anyway you think I can though, not sure what but just send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

      I don't think it's out yet. Pete really wants to go and see it, ever since he saw the alternate trailer. It shows Murdoch in his escape attempt using a defibrillator on the engine of an ambulance to try and start it (Pete enjoyed that part most). If the trailers are anything to go by, it should be cool.

      Just wondering, did you know they've made an A-Team film? I know you liked the series.

      The beta has been extended and now doesn't "officially" end until 10am PST tomorrow. That suggests you may be able to carry on playing after that time for a while if you are already playing.

      I'd like to create a poll to see if anyone is interested in doing another Zombie variant already. Since Morsus is taking up the Standard thread, the Experiment one is the only open place, which means my Alien round will have to wait.

      I know we call the ITJ the spam journal, but since its basically the USSRRvB hangout, most of the mafia players don't post there. Do you think it would be a good idea to create a bar-type thread in the Mafia group, where you just discuss the mafia game in general?

      I for one feel like it would be a good idea to post a poll to see if everyone is already ready for a Zombie round, and a bar-like thread would be perfect. I'm sure a place like that would bring life back to mafia. It has been dead since the last game about a month ago.

      Wow, long user comment.smile.png

      Yes, it is time to call off the round.

      I guess Morsus will be given his chance early.

      Could you make a news post informing people that I need two more people by 7 PM CST tonight?

      There is significantly less people than I had planned for this round. I didn't plan on people not joining because of Reach. 16 people is only two thirds of my preferred amount of people. smiley4.gif

      I think its time to call the round off. I won't have enough people. Might as well give Morsus a try.

      Could you make a news article of it?
