1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I hope you're okay; concussions are serious business. You should get that checked out.

    I tend to be a bit paranoid so I'm assuming I'm fine until I've reason to believe otherwise...

    Chantal. I should be seriously embarrassed that I've been drawn into the gallery girls train wreck but she is loathsome.

    I wishes could come true, my boss would have a heart attack or a brain aneurism atm.

    Right now the only thing that keeps me from just going home is the fact I've a different job lined up that should come through in the coming weeks. The problems that will ensue from me leaving on a short notice are enough to make me smile again...

    I can't stand it when people crank music while wearing earbud headphones. The sonics do not improve as you increase the volume and you're ruining your hearing. Moron.

    In old-school pro wrestling, when the matches went on for up to an hour, the wrestlers would make use of what were called rest holds. These are holds like arm bars and headlocks which don't require much exertion of energy for either wrestler.

    I have always viewed things like movies or in-class group work as analogous to rest holds. I have never made use of them even once in twelve years of teaching at the university level.

    New office floor because the old one is being renovated. Completely open desk plan. Goodbye privacy.

    I give up, I can't be bothered dealing with the Japanese idiots, mentioned earlier in this thread.

    1. Send an email wait 4 weeks, for an answer, send a reply wait four more weeks.
    2. They have decided that I have to mark up the products with 50%, which makes them unsellable and so expensive, that you could order them from the US for less (with tax and shipping).

    Why do you need privacy if you are not committing wrong acts? Sounds like the new floor plan will habituate you to virtue.

    You might be right, but now I have an espresso machine on my desk, which is noisy and I am free to pick my nose and crack my knuckles in peace.
