      Finally got a job, but on a different land mass. Which means clearing out all the crap I've hoarded for no reason, and stuffing anything I do want into boxes.

      I didn't realise I had so much. Done all my books, most of my DVDs and got to start on my CDs yet, then all my heavy electronics. Moving is such fun.

      No journals in a long time (does anyone even read these?), but I have to say I'm all pleased with myself for finally tracking down that last frakking Agility Orb in Crackdown. Another 21 Hidden to go, and my orb-hunting days are over.



      ....until Crackdown 2. You know, they really got the name right. The "crack" part, anyway.

      Just hit level 70 on my Rogue this evening, and bought my first flying mount. Good Lord, they're slow! Of course, I'm still using it at every opportunity that presents itself.

      Heroes rules. Just finished season one, and January 22nd can't come soon enough.

      What is it with TV shows now and having cliffhangers on the last episode of the series?

      Saw my dream job advertised at work today. Not going to jinx it by waxing lyrical on here, or anything, but I'm all kinds of updating my portfolio this weekend... just have to keep my fingers crossed that my stuff's good enough!

    • I never go on the forum here...

      ...and I just remembered why. It makes me angry. Very angry. The level to which the denizens of this place (though RvB is by no means unique, sadly...) abuse the English language is just offensive. Christ, kids, learn to punctuate or something! What makes the word "you" such a strain to type that you must only use the last letter!?

      I hate txtspk. I can understand the origins, and I don't even mind it so much in text messages; you have limited space, and it would cost you more if you overrun. I can even understand why you might do it in IM clients, where you want to get your quip or whatever out before your addled little brain forgets it.

      But this is the goddamn Internet! The mighty and infinite plane of open expression, and half of these peons can't even string a word together, never mind a sentence. I don't mind typos, I don't mind if English isn't your first language and you're doing your best. That's cool with me. What bothers me is that people just get lazy, or don't give a damn.

      Language is supposed to be about communication, and I have to spend five minutes deciphering every sentence out there. Why can't they just use proper English that everyone can understand? Lord knows I don't expect 30-letter words, or entire posts in palindromic haiku, but for God's sake, make it legible!

      End of rant.



      For now, anyway. I'm going back to The Society.

      Seems pretty good so far. Keyboard isn't as crazy as the main menu one, and it's handled every site I've thrown at it so far; it also wants to auto-complete every word and put ".com" at every full stop. Don't think it's quite intended for journal entries, though...

      Edit: it could use an address bar at the top; having to go back to the home screen to type a URL is inconvenient.

      Well, it's that time of year again, when everyone swaps the cheer they have the rest of the year for mind-shattering stress as they wonder what the hell they're supposed to get someone they haven't seen in a year, but you really ought to because they're related and they'll probably get you something that you'll have to pretend to like, then put away for five minutes and then find you're unable to remember what you got last Christmas...

      At lest we get time off work, though. Eleven glorious days away from the Great Unwashed, what could be better? Well, yes, okay, the rest of my life away from them, but my point still stands.

      Just have to hope all this fog doesn't mess up my flight tomorrow...

    • Eragon

      Went to ye olde cinema last night to see Eragon; the book's been hovering somewhere low on my "to read" list for a while, and I figured if the movie was any good I might try and grab it at some point in the not too distant future (January sales a-callin').

      It was surprisingly good, but there was something running through my head the whole time. Another movie, in fact. One you (yes, you!) may even have heard of. Star Wars.

      Because Eragon is almost literally Star Wars with a dragon in it. In fact, think back on A New Hope, only replace any reference to "Jedi" with "Dragon Rider", and you're about halfway there.

      Hi there, just thought I would say hello seeing as I have finally stumbled across somebody from where I live and at the same Uni. Makes a change from yanks all the time.

      Hello fellow Member,

      That’s a bad start. I am sending this to every person who is in the UK.
      There has been change. Please could you go straight to the UK Event thread as soon as possible to read the details? Tell you what; I will put in the link especially for you.

      Linkageness

      The long story is Evoluan has decide that he is not the one for the event and has past on duties to Moderator Pixie. Now there is change and as we are doing things differently you need to confirm you place again, so I cannot stress how this has changed a lot of things.

      Thanks again

      Please do not reply in your own personal comments! No one will see it. PM Me, MrSquigles or Pixie if you want to say/ask anything (Or post it in the thread)

      Congrats on being the featured user! And on being a fan of one of the best video games out today! I wish Psychonauts would sell better, it deserves to get a LOT more than props from critics. I guess I just want a sequel...Raz kicks ass!
