Hey what’s up peeps?
It’s just me again posting up some of the generals of whats been going on here. Been lamenting about not being able to get Fallout 4, and feeling envy and anger because of it. I gave a quad-core to a fellow coworker and friend for his 3D printer and for my contribution I will be getting a pipboy3k and either Glados in the form of a Lamp project or a AER9 Laser Rifle I think the rifle may be the better way to go since the Glados prop is like 2,5 Kg of filament.
It came to my attention here on Friday Nov. 13th that a friend of mine is being lambasted for his beliefs and sharing them for discussion. This also brought up thread on Buddhism where there were some light flaming/trolling but also serious replies adding to the discussion and then the site admin closes and locks it saying things such as “I didn’t do anything about the rampant garbage posts that eventually lead to everyone leaving.” Well had you been doing your Duty as Site Admin and Moderator and had your team doing their share “MAYBE” and I use that term loosely , that your site/community based from a “webcomic” that died over like roughly 12/14 years ago wouldn’t be so full of shit and sadness.
Sometimes you just have to let something pass and die and bury it with dignity instead of dragging out over a period of years in hopes that the creator of said “webcomic” decides to create a new one and re-register the originating website domain, which pretty much not going to happen from what I’ve seen and heard over the years. Clanbob has become a site occupied mostly by bullies and should just disappear, I won’t say they are on par with GamersGate because that would give them too much credit. This site has gone through I think 5 incarnations and each one has died mostly a sad death each one sadder as it goes along. I will leave this with “DIE CLANBOB DIE” ! 😀
Other than that, I am also updating my Genshiken Nidiame Manga library, and awaiting the premier of Accel World Infinity Burst for the next Quarter on the Anime Season. I’m also researching on how to repair this R2 unit I bought last year online, it’s got to be something simple. I’m learning how to manipulate Rainmeter skins to how I’d like the computer to react, and also back to teaching the voice command software to learn and detect my voice and obey the commands I give it. A Steam Friend and Co-Worker got me Portal 2 for my account the other day! Yay me and thanks to my friend for getting that, it was very cool of him, now I just have to start some coop fun with it. Also started a few weapon prop projects with a few fellow cosplay buds as well, but they’ve been in it longer than I have and they’re slightly younger as well save for one to three of us. The makeshift paint booth is still up and sturdy and hasn’t had to be replaced yet as well which is good.
Work is fine, it’s paying bills and medical expenses. I wished I was working 8 to 5 or 9 to 6 with Saturday and Sunday off like I was supposed to, but I have to take what I can for my family. Hopefully things will fall back into line and I will be able to get the 8 to 5 shift with Saturday and Sunday off and be able to be around my family more again. For now I’m done and back to work for me. Be well readers and my fellow WP bloggers. Next entry will be just after Thanksgiving I think.
Joined on Date: 04-24-2001 One place I joined because one the guys at the forum we had been freq’ing before, had become douchebag centeral. For awhile it ok people were ok with each other and not stepping on people’s toes but after awhile it started getting touchy then rude and then outright horrendous and after that? I was removed, the one dubbed Misty left, Squall still has access but also abandoned the place as well. Since then the board has fallen to ruin. Just the admins and thier hosted forum pack are the only ones there active, the other 900+ are more or less spam/porn spiders and bots that invaded the board.
Then lets see, there was Battle-Forums which isn’t a bad place in itself. Just didn’t get along with the newly appointed admin, and I was dropped as a friend by someone I thought I could trust w/o too much concern. There are also other issues involved I don;t wish to bring up, but ultimately I left of my own accord and had the account closed/banned by the admin. Which in itself is fine we’ve quarreled over the yrs and such but somehow we seem to be tolorant with each other to the point its almost polite nowdays. Then again we’ve also gotten older too. But there were people there that just rubbed me the wrong way.
Then there is Clan bob which was a community that spawned from the ashes of that which was part of The Top 100 Web Comics Site back in 1999. Since then there has been “3” incarnations of the clanbob community. Each one also getting worse and worse with each passing. However this particular community doesn’t stagnate like the psx, however it does rather have a habit for trolling on a semi constant basis. I just got extremely tired of it, to such a point that I removed my email and other certain info updated it knowing that said account would be forced into deactivation till a admin or moderator would have to activate it by hand to even allow it access to the board again. Haven’t realy been by there much since, although lurking form time to time has happened.
My LJ you ask? I gave it up as well. seeing peoples problems were just getting me down to a degree that I just didn;t want to post or reply anymore. That and there were a few people that are just so hard headed and can’t take a hint when it’s pasted on a trout and slapped at the nap of thier neck. But don’t get me wrong! I love forums, so much I have my own, such as it is. Decided to have my own because at least that way I can control what is posted and what is not. Kill and bann spambots dead and keep the twinks, dinks, twerps, and jerks out and off. I even caught one person I consdered quite distasteful on my forum because someone had given him thier login info to try to cause some trolling grief. Lucky for me I knew what thier IP was and who thier provider was as well.
I also like the gaming communities, like Beyond Unreal and Epic Forums. At least there people are respectful of each other, helpful to one and other especially when someone has quite a problem with modding or maybe a techincal issue with hardware as well. One can actually be greeted and feel welcome and be able to log in w/o the feel of dread and wonder how much of your selfworth is going to get shredded to hell and back. People actually care about what you do to a degree and like talking with you at length. Well enough of the jabbering and such, I need to get back to work and finish off a few things before lunch.
So, I got on the top 10 agents list for last month. Good for me, I am glad I can do the job and get recog, for it. I even got a cool gift card of an undisclosed amount, and a catered lunch of sirloin tip beef, candied carrot home slices. A nice garden salad and a Seafood pasta salad as well.
Come to a conclusion though, why are people I don’t like and don’t even really associate with try to start some type of fight when all they’re going to get is a whole pack of empty? Seriously, it’s been an ongoing issue, and to be frank it’s quite asinine as well. If you have a problem with me? That’s your problem and you have to deal with it.
Not me, I’m done trying to act nice or trying to be civil while being cussed at by some late 20’ish early 30’ish acting an ass so they seem cool to their irc buddies and cut up on me after I leave. Or that’s at least what’s been told to me by other people in there from time to time. It’s more like just an annoyance than anything else, and eventually you just don’t even acknowledge them anymore even if they try to talk to you. But do they get the hint? Unknown, because I’m just not willing to take that 1st step or retort to some type of insult to possible injury
