Well, one is in the obituries now. But I'm not sure if it was really blammed or just deleted by the author. I still am sick of getting one or two blams a day, when I hit the 0 button far more often than that. Really, what's the point in B/Ping if your vote doesn't really matter in the end? 90% of the flashes pass anyway.

Yes. It's also amazing how small a "big city" can be.

Barcelona is a nice city. A bit too crowded, maybe. And the traffic is pretty dangerous (nobody looks out for anybody... and don't think they'll slow down for you if you are crossing the street!). But it's definitely worth visiting Barcelona at least once.
If I can barely manage London, I imagine I can get through Barcelona.

I don't know much about the traffic in London. But Barcelona is pretty bad... once I've seen an ambulance with sirens on, but almost everyone just ignored it's priority.

Whoops, my mind went rolling again...

Nice one. ;)
One of my colleagues had his last working day today. He's now going on a "work & travel" trip for 6 to 12 months.

They say you shouldn't do things that you don't enjoy doing and to be honest, more and more I grow tired of making these updates.

Exactly. What's the point if everyone just gets saves and saves and even more saves just to be high in some (not so important) list? Not trying to put your work down. I enjoy stat lists. But if people do everything just to be on it... it becomes questionable if the list should be continued. It's a nice addition to us stat whores, nothing more (and nothing less!), but if you just feel it's a chore to do it... it's best to stop doing it.

I feel the same about B/Ping in general and the feeling gets stronger every time I see that I only got as much as TWO blams for the whole day. So, I stop B/Ping for the rest of the week and we see how it goes from there... maybe I even have some more time to do some reviews? ^^

I did my camping with the scouts, when I was a kid. I see nothing to be gained from it now that I'm half a lifetime removed from that.
Comparing camping as a scout with camping at a festival camping ground... it's like comparing watching porn to having sex with a real person. It's just not the same. ;)

No, it really isn't - the toilet facilities are worse on a campsite than they were with the scouts, as are showers / washing facilities. I like my creature comforts too much. Plus people tend to complain if I start shagging in my tent, as I can be quite noisy.

Yeah, I was the one with the camera, hence why the quality was so poor. Perhaps if I can get a girlfriend who is willing to attend a game or two, she will get some action shots of me in the middle, or even some video footage. We shall see.
I'll be honest, I was kinda hoping you'd be the crazy guy spraying the champagne everywhere. (Though I know your likeness well enough to know it wasn't at first glance.)

Nah, that was Harry - he was only 16 at the time and now being 18, he should have matured a little. Wait and see.

Trust me. Noone will complain if you hear you shagging in your tent. ;) But you might have to deal with people either cheering you on outside the tent... or trying to get into the tent, joining the party. ;)

Also, what are those "shower"-thingies you talk about? :P

I beg to differ. Since I don't find anything attractive about the male body, I just can't imagine having any erotic encounters with a male person.

It's like this: Some people like to get spanked. But I don't have to try that out to know that I don't like it. ;)

Nah, that was Harry - he was only 16 at the time and now being 18, he should have matured a little. Wait and see.

And for a moment there, I thought you where talking about Prince Harry (just skimming over the rest of the post I saw that name "Harry" there). But then you said something about "he has matured a little" and I knew you have to be talking about someone else. XD

I don't find things attractive about the male form, but I can see why certain females are attracted to certain male looks (though why they are attracted to Robbie Williams is beyond me). It's one of the reasons that I work out - to make my own for more attractive.

It's like this: Some people like to get spanked. But I don't have to try that out to know that I don't like it. ;)

Prince Harry is a legend! The Prince Philip of the new generation. Casually racist, sense of humour, war hero, everything the modern Royal Family needs.

They say it's a small world. I suppose it's true. Hell, all we've done is explored this planet and only a small fraction of the universe has been discovered by us. Scary to think how massive the whole universe really is but I do wonder what is actually out there. I know it sounds cliche but we can't be alone here. I can have a few thoughts in my mind about outer space that some may find a tad startling. I mean, what we refer this planet as Earth can be a completely different name to whatever species out there have seen our planet. I sometimes wonder how advanced technology is out there in another world.

Yeah, I really need to shut up at times. We're not gonna find out these things in our lifetimes unless we froze ourselves. Also not happening. :P

I don't know much about the traffic in London. But Barcelona is pretty bad... once I've seen an ambulance with sirens on, but almost everyone just ignored it's priority.

London gets hectic at times, particularly in the central area where everything is located. One city I dread to go to due to traffic and being an extremely busy place is New York. It's never made to look quiet at all.

Whoops, my mind went rolling again...
Nice one. ;)
One of my colleagues had his last working day today. He's now going on a "work & travel" trip for 6 to 12 months.

I'd also like to go to a Comic Con or a PAX event. You know, where Tom himself shows up to but I wouldn't be there just for him. I would of course go there for various other things. Other places I'd like to go are various places where they have all the big thrill rides. Being a roller coaster junkie, I do wish I could go to all these places but dammit, so little money to go to them all. That's why it would be cool to go to PortAventura in Spain but again, it's all about budgeting.

They say you shouldn't do things that you don't enjoy doing and to be honest, more and more I grow tired of making these updates.
Exactly. What's the point if everyone just gets saves and saves and even more saves just to be high in some (not so important) list?

It's sad because I tried to keep my faith in the blammers but less and less it actually works. The staff really need to think over the judgment system, otherwise the portal is gonna keep digging its grave. It's no wonder so many have abandoned ship from here...

Not trying to put your work down. I enjoy stat lists. But if people do everything just to be on it... it becomes questionable if the list should be continued. It's a nice addition to us stat whores, nothing more (and nothing less!), but if you just feel it's a chore to do it... it's best to stop doing it.

Well, I'm still thinking things over but the EXP update is still on schedule. I will need to catch up on my user extractions and hopefully I find a bit of time to do that. As for the B/P update, I'll see how I am by next Sunday.

I feel the same about B/Ping in general and the feeling gets stronger every time I see that I only got as much as TWO blams for the whole day. So, I stop B/Ping for the rest of the week and we see how it goes from there... maybe I even have some more time to do some reviews? ^^

I only stopped because I wanted my retirement goal and had nothing to do with savewhoring problems whatsoever. That said, I've not tried to blam with my Toohot100 alt for a long time now. I just don't feel it's worth putting the effort into anymore. While I pretty much have nothing to do for up to five days a week, there's some things I just don't feel like doing anymore. Infact, since my break up I've realised how much I hate being stuck at home all day. It didn't bother me so much beforehand but now I do see how dull life is when I'm stuck sitting in front of my laptop for most of the time.

I only ask for a few things in life and I try to not be more demanding than that. All I want is to have a good job and to enjoy my life with a love partner together and forever. Is that really much to ask for, life?

Correct - procrastination will not help in these circumstances.

I have been giving a search this week but with the Easter weekend in the way, I'm gonna wait it out until after the holiday is over. Perhaps then I'll have a clearer mind on finding someone out there. Gotta try a few different methods and see what works out better than others. I personally don't think searching around Easter or Christmas is a good time since everyone will be too occupied with celebrating the holidays. That was why I didn't have relationships in my mind last November and December, although I did have someone in mind that I probably would have tried asking out but she was already taken.

I'm sure a relationship can happen at any time of the year but there are times when I feel I gotta look for someone until afterwards but hey, if things worked out better than expected then I really can't complain. Let's see what having bigger determination will do for me. I guess if I didn't fall in love with her at the end of January, I would have been at the same stage now doing the exact same things.

I'm pretty sure there is more intelligent life out there. If they can travel through the universe I don't know. But since there is an infinite number of planets out there, there just has to be another one where there is life...

Yeah, I really need to shut up at times. We're not gonna find out these things in our lifetimes unless we froze ourselves. Also not happening. :P

I heard a radio play not too long ago (from the 60's. I really am into old radio plays like that), it was about a guy who had an illness that couldn't be cured in the time he lived. So he decided to freeze himself. Then, when his illness could be cured, he was unfrozen. But it turned out that he couldn't cope with society anymore, since almost everything he knew had changed.

I don't know much about the traffic in London. But Barcelona is pretty bad... once I've seen an ambulance with sirens on, but almost everyone just ignored it's priority.
London gets hectic at times, particularly in the central area where everything is located. One city I dread to go to due to traffic and being an extremely busy place is New York. It's never made to look quiet at all.

I heard that it's pretty easy to orient yourself there. Well, that's one advantage of the "chess board" like streets.

Nice one. ;)
One of my colleagues had his last working day today. He's now going on a "work & travel" trip for 6 to 12 months.
I'd also like to go to a Comic Con or a PAX event. You know, where Tom himself shows up to but I wouldn't be there just for him. I would of course go there for various other things.

Yeah, I would like to go to Comic Con as well. But I wouldn't travel all the way just for that event.

Exactly. What's the point if everyone just gets saves and saves and even more saves just to be high in some (not so important) list?
It's sad because I tried to keep my faith in the blammers but less and less it actually works. The staff really need to think over the judgment system, otherwise the portal is gonna keep digging its grave. It's no wonder so many have abandoned ship from here...

There are also other things I'm not too happy about. For example how long it takes to get the special characters on the BBS working again. I mean, it's broken since the redesign and since then we hear that it's being looked into. But come on... it can't be that hard to change the character coding. It is already working for our newsposts!

Not trying to put your work down. I enjoy stat lists. But if people do everything just to be on it... it becomes questionable if the list should be continued. It's a nice addition to us stat whores, nothing more (and nothing less!), but if you just feel it's a chore to do it... it's best to stop doing it.
Well, I'm still thinking things over but the EXP update is still on schedule. I will need to catch up on my user extractions and hopefully I find a bit of time to do that. As for the B/P update, I'll see how I am by next Sunday.

Exp is a different thing. We all just get 10 Exp per day, so there's no questionable voting habits or anything like that involved. It's just a matter of if you can motivate yourself every day to deposit your Exp. ^^

I feel the same about B/Ping in general and the feeling gets stronger every time I see that I only got as much as TWO blams for the whole day. So, I stop B/Ping for the rest of the week and we see how it goes from there... maybe I even have some more time to do some reviews? ^^
I only stopped because I wanted my retirement goal and had nothing to do with savewhoring problems whatsoever.

Well, what can I say. I don't miss B/Ping that much. But I didn't have much time to be here anyway. And since I'm working full time since a few months, there's even less time for B/Ping. And in my new company, I don't know if I can surf privatly as much as I did at my old place. So, even less time...

Maybe I will become active again, but maybe I'll just up my numbers to a nice, round total and that's it. I really would like to reach 20k blams, but with only 1 to 4 blams a day, it's just not worth the effort.

That said, I've not tried to blam with my Toohot100 alt for a long time now.

I tried blamming with one alt as well. But out of 30 votes cast, I barley did recieve any blam points. So... fuck that.

It didn't bother me so much beforehand but now I do see how dull life is when I'm stuck sitting in front of my laptop for most of the time.

Well, maybe that's just the motivation you need to change something. I know the feeling all too well. In fact, sometimes I didn't feel like working in my student job at all. But I just couldn't tell my wife: "Oh I stopped working there because I just couldn't motivate myself". That would have been very silly.

I only ask for a few things in life and I try to not be more demanding than that. All I want is to have a good job and to enjoy my life with a love partner together and forever. Is that really much to ask for, life?

IMO: No.

Yeah, I was pretty sure I was logged in to my main account already. :/

I don't think I've ever made this mistake once. Although, if I am giving up depositing my alts then it's less likely it will even happen. Now I'm only going to deposit for the one guy who has asked me to take care of his account for as long as possible. I'm still keeping that favour for him even four years on. While I have missed a lot of deposits for him, I'm still doing at least 90% so hopefully it's still good. Then again, if it weren't for me, he'd only be around level 40 and he's at least ten higher than that now.

They say it's a small world. I suppose it's true. Hell, all we've done is explored this planet and only a small fraction of the universe has been discovered by us. Scary to think how massive the whole universe really is but I do wonder what is actually out there. I know it sounds cliche but we can't be alone here. I can have a few thoughts in my mind about outer space that some may find a tad startling. I mean, what we refer this planet as Earth can be a completely different name to whatever species out there have seen our planet. I sometimes wonder how advanced technology is out there in another world.
I'm pretty sure there is more intelligent life out there. If they can travel through the universe I don't know. But since there is an infinite number of planets out there, there just has to be another one where there is life...

We can't say how many planets are actually out there but there's gotta be some lifeform somewhere. However, if nothing has arrived here all this time then chances are we probably won't ever see them now. Heck, maybe Earth will never see extraterrestrial life at all. I know scientists are doing a lot to find whatever is out there but if they ever do find anything and is currently living, we're still a long way off. Kinda funny how some like myself want to know what's out there when for all we know, they could possibly destroy the whole world if they ever approached us. :P There's a 99.99% chance anyone outside of this planet approaches us will be hostile.

Yeah, I really need to shut up at times. We're not gonna find out these things in our lifetimes unless we froze ourselves. Also not happening. :P
I heard a radio play not too long ago (from the 60's. I really am into old radio plays like that), it was about a guy who had an illness that couldn't be cured in the time he lived. So he decided to freeze himself. Then, when his illness could be cured, he was unfrozen. But it turned out that he couldn't cope with society anymore, since almost everything he knew had changed.

If I did get frozen for 50 years or so, I kinda dread how technology will be then. What would the internet even be like then? We complain about what Facebook and YouTube changes enough over one thing so imagine them in 2050s when the time arrives. A far distance future like that is a long way to go and I don't want to look far ahead, especially when I'd like to make sure I can have a good life. Seriously, even trying to look at five years in the future is something I'd rather avoid. For now I want to try and fix myself a bit. I don't want to be single and unemployed for all eternity.

London gets hectic at times, particularly in the central area where everything is located. One city I dread to go to due to traffic and being an extremely busy place is New York. It's never made to look quiet at all.
I heard that it's pretty easy to orient yourself there. Well, that's one advantage of the "chess board" like streets.

Yeah, I'm starting to lose my patience with them over this. I'm sorry but it's been over a year and something that seems so minor as well as something I've not once seen on any other website on the world wide web is starting to take the piss. Another thing I want them to fix which has lasted far longer than it should have is the error with artists having their posts listed in riff-raff. I am sick of having my posts shown in the community section when clearly it should be in artists. I'm to the point where I hardly want to make that many news posts now. The effort I put into all those posts and hardly got any responses for it. Infact, I wouldn't even get anything now unless it was a short and simple post. I don't think I'll be renewing my supporter badge in September if this is still going on even then.

Well, I'm still thinking things over but the EXP update is still on schedule. I will need to catch up on my user extractions and hopefully I find a bit of time to do that. As for the B/P update, I'll see how I am by next Sunday.

I said to Metal-Therapy that the worst you can do is having a ridiculous amount of alts or taking over accounts that clearly do not belong to you in the first place. Everything else, the system is spot on, although there's been a few moments where users have gained more EXP than realistically possible whether it be a request to one of the admins or they found an exploitation somewhere.

I only stopped because I wanted my retirement goal and had nothing to do with savewhoring problems whatsoever.
Well, what can I say. I don't miss B/Ping that much. But I didn't have much time to be here anyway. And since I'm working full time since a few months, there's even less time for B/Ping. And in my new company, I don't know if I can surf privatly as much as I did at my old place. So, even less time...

If you are giving yourself some time to review submissions, that I feel is far more productive than continuing to gain points. I only wish there were more dedicated reviewers on the site. Now all you see is crappy one liners that look like they belong in YouTube comment boxes. This is not the direction we should be heading but clearly the internet is having much lower standards than it did before.

Yeah, that's only eternal so it's not really all that worth it. Funny to think gfox still needs to get 36,000 saves yet now is the best time to get what you need. It shouldn't be encouraged but he's taken long enough to even try and get there. Just about 1,600 more saves needed for him. It can't be that hard if he focused enough but I suppose his life is too busy to even have time for B/P anymore. It's always a good idea to try and get points from the portal when you're depositing.

That said, I've not tried to blam with my Toohot100 alt for a long time now.

But I just couldn't tell my wife: "Oh I stopped working there because I just couldn't motivate myself". That would have been very silly.

At least now I feel staying at home all day is never a good thing. I've enjoyed my free time listening to music for at least 12 hours a day and playing video games whenever I feel like it (with the odd TV and movie to watch) but I think I've let myself have all this free time for a good long time. I know I have friends to see at least twice a week but I think a bit more can be done outside the house. Maybe now that I'm saving money on travel expenses I can possibly do something for another day of the week but I gotta see that I can do it within budget. I can't get myself hammered every Friday when that will only demolish my money so fast. Perhaps I can see that once a month I can go out for a Friday drink.

I only ask for a few things in life and I try to not be more demanding than that. All I want is to have a good job and to enjoy my life with a love partner together and forever. Is that really much to ask for, life?
IMO: No.

Thanks man! I know other things may be desired at a later point but it's not like I'm asking to be a millionaire or anything. Just the money to get me by in life will do for me. Sure, the vast amount of money would be nice but I'm not going to make it a lifelong goal or anything. As for a love partner, this one is never a piece of cake to obtain but I only want to share my time with a special someone. To be able to do a lot of things together wherever we go would make myself really happy and I want to make sure I can make my loved one happy and special as well. I don't want to feel like I'm treating her like a possession and I much prefer an equal relationship so neither of us is more dominant than the other.

Queensryche are the headliners for saturday on the Rock Hard Festival 2013. Are they fucking kidding me? First of all, there's King Diamond who I'd much rather see on a Saturday (now he plays on Sunday, so chances are very slim that I will see him) plus the rest of the billing is very "meh", to say the least. Really, the only band I like to see is Fleshcrawl... but oh well, the festival where I don't have fun hasn't been invented yet, haha.

But really... Queensryche... that's just a fucking joke...

but there's gotta be some lifeform somewhere.

I think it's pretty weak from scientists that most of them say that life can only exist on a carbon basis, so they look for lifeforms similar to ours. But who's to say that on other planets in other galaxies a whole different form of life exists?

However, if nothing has arrived here all this time then chances are we probably won't ever see them now.

I see it this way: If they are intelligent enough so that they can travel the distances in space, they are also intelligent enough to stay the hell away from us.
OR: They are so intelligent that they don't even recognize us. Really, when was the last time you tried to communicate with a worm? If for "aliens" we are just worms, they won't bother communicating with us.

Nope, even for outsiders. Since all roads lead somewhere (as in, no dead end streets) and you can very easily get from one parallel road to the next, it's very hard to get lost there.

although there's been a few moments where users have gained more EXP than realistically possible whether it be a request to one of the admins or they found an exploitation somewhere.

That "giving back missed Exp" thing is another thing that pisses me off. If you missed the deposit, you missed it. Tough luck. If I see another account gaining missed Exp back, I'm going to ask Tom if he can recover all my Exp I already missed...

I only stopped because I wanted my retirement goal and had nothing to do with savewhoring problems whatsoever.
Well, what can I say. I don't miss B/Ping that much. But I didn't have much time to be here anyway. And since I'm working full time since a few months, there's even less time for B/Ping.

Eh, I still had no time to do some reviews. :(

It's always a good idea to try and get points from the portal when you're depositing.

Yeah, maybe I will just vote 0 on five UJ entries, to at least gain some blams from time to time...

I don't want to feel like I'm treating her like a possession and I much prefer an equal relationship so neither of us is more dominant than the other.

Yeah, that's one of the challenges of a relationship. You have to treat your partner with respect and have to listen to her wishes, but at the same time, you cannot let her take control over the whole relationship. Of course, this also holds true for your significant other. She can't let YOU take control over the whole relationship.

Another thing to avoid is to become "one person", when you are really two persons. I know, me and my wife, we always arrive together at parties, and we leave together. But at the party itself, we don't hang out too much together. There's one other couple I see from time to time, and they ALWAYS hang out together, constantly holding hands or having the arms around each other... and they really get on my nerves, heh. I mean, it's nice that they love each other. But this "being together 24/7" is just annoying.

Correct - procrastination will not help in these circumstances.
I have been giving a search this week but with the Easter weekend in the way, I'm gonna wait it out until after the holiday is over. Perhaps then I'll have a clearer mind on finding someone out there. Gotta try a few different methods and see what works out better than others. I personally don't think searching around Easter or Christmas is a good time since everyone will be too occupied with celebrating the holidays. That was why I didn't have relationships in my mind last November and December, although I did have someone in mind that I probably would have tried asking out but she was already taken.

The problem that you get with that is that what works with one girl doesn't necessarily work with another. Trial and error helps a lot, but I'm sure you'll sort something out some way.

I'm sure a relationship can happen at any time of the year but there are times when I feel I gotta look for someone until afterwards but hey, if things worked out better than expected then I really can't complain. Let's see what having bigger determination will do for me. I guess if I didn't fall in love with her at the end of January, I would have been at the same stage now doing the exact same things.

Post-Valentines day was a great opportunity, as people seem to be more open to it, especially if they have friends who are in a relationship, thus having a decent idea of the romantic gestures that they want.

Now more than ever, I understand the meaning of the phrase "fuck off" :P
Or the phrase "don't fuck with me". XD

Quite.

Also, what are those "shower"-thingies you talk about? :P
Like standing in the rain, but warmer, with the application of herbal blends, which help to keep hippies smelling nice :P
I see. I think I've heard of them before...

I'm a fan of stuff like that, what can I say?

I beg to differ. Since I don't find anything attractive about the male body, I just can't imagine having any erotic encounters with a male person.
I don't find things attractive about the male form, but I can see why certain females are attracted to certain male looks (though why they are attracted to Robbie Williams is beyond me). It's one of the reasons that I work out - to make my own for more attractive.
"Why carry a six pack if you can have a whole keg?" is a common phrase here... and in my experience, women don't like overly muscular men that much anyway.

I don't have a six-pack, just a quest for one.

Prince Harry is a legend! The Prince Philip of the new generation. Casually racist, sense of humour, war hero, everything the modern Royal Family needs.
Since I was talking about spanking before... all the royal family needs, is a good spanking. :P

Nah, we need them to have something more than that - more pomp and ceremony. Plenty more things like trooping the colour, the Queen's official birthday celebrations, state opening of parliament, everything that involves fancy dress, horse and carriage processions, the lot.

Listening to:

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Greatest Hits. One of the few compilations albums that I can tolerate. I'm not so big on these guys so this does good for me. Although, I keep meaning to put By the Way back on in my music library.

Depends which Queensryche we're talking about. There's the one with Geoff Tate and one without. If it was the one with Geoff Tate, I certainly agree. If the other... I still agree. Tateless Queensryche needs to provide a few good albums on their own since the new direction.

I could have deleted your post if you had requested it via IM/PM. :P

Since space is infinite (or at least, the universe is still expanding) there also are an infinite number of planets out there.

I have a hard time thinking space is infinite. Surely there's gotta be a point where it can no longer expand. However, the number of planets the universe holds must be an insane amount. We can see plenty of stars at night so just imagine how many planets orbit around them. I only wish I could discover a planet on my behalf and be allowed to name it after something. :P

but there's gotta be some lifeform somewhere.
I think it's pretty weak from scientists that most of them say that life can only exist on a carbon basis, so they look for lifeforms similar to ours. But who's to say that on other planets in other galaxies a whole different form of life exists?

It would help to keep the options open since you really don't know what species from another planets are capable of doing. Maybe that's their conclusion but anything is possible.

However, if nothing has arrived here all this time then chances are we probably won't ever see them now.
I see it this way: If they are intelligent enough so that they can travel the distances in space, they are also intelligent enough to stay the hell away from us.

If they saw what this world has to offer, that would be a damn good call. :P Devin Townsend said it himself best, "I've said it before, now I'll say it again; it was all too much for the Alien"

OR: They are so intelligent that they don't even recognize us. Really, when was the last time you tried to communicate with a worm? If for "aliens" we are just worms, they won't bother communicating with us.

Fair point to that. Earth can't be that special planet that some sci-fi shows/films try to make it out to be. A bit silly for me to say that since I love Futurama a lot and they like to centre around Earth a lot and then you have Doctor Who where the majority of Earth-based events as well as the companions are located in Britain.

Maybe if you've been living there all your life.
Nope, even for outsiders. Since all roads lead somewhere (as in, no dead end streets) and you can very easily get from one parallel road to the next, it's very hard to get lost there.

And it's still a place that's easy to get to from point A to point B without so much worry about traffic? I suppose Philip J. Fry had a point when he claimed no-one drove since there was too much traffic. :P

I'd travel all the way to Philadelphia for the NG office if I could. :P
Well, James Rolfe lives in Philadelphia as well, so that's two good reasons. ^^

Also good. It feels like a lot of things are located in Philadelphia. I actually assumed it was a state at one point, haha. My geographical knowledge on America can be patchy. If there was one thing school never tried to teach me in Geography, it was learning all the states of America.

I don't think I'll be renewing my supporter badge in September if this is still going on even then.

I've been defending them for so long about being busy with a lot of things but there's only so much patience I can handle before it becomes a joke. The unicode symbol issue is something that should be a higher priority by now because some like myself want to use the pound sterling symbol without it making my post look like a mess. Again, this doesn't happen on any other website. I'm starting to think I should send a message to Tom and be completely honest about how I feel with the way some things have been on here. I tend to feel bad for him since he probably reads a lot of crap already but maybe hearing something from myself could make a change. I don't expect instant changes to the portal but at least get some of the ongoing problems fixed already!

although there's been a few moments where users have gained more EXP than realistically possible whether it be a request to one of the admins or they found an exploitation somewhere.
That "giving back missed Exp" thing is another thing that pisses me off. If you missed the deposit, you missed it. Tough luck. If I see another account gaining missed Exp back, I'm going to ask Tom if he can recover all my Exp I already missed...

The only exception I would ever agree is that the account was compromised. No offence to Coop but it was shit of him to ask Tom to see if he could recover the missed deposit from the redesign launch date when most will have missed a deposit or two from that time alone due to those circumstances. I've had a few deposits missed due to those who were taking care of me had internet troubles or it just slipped out of their mind.

Thankfully I have a phone now so the only times where I'll really need someone to deposit for me is if I ever go outside the UK. Use of internet on phones in foreign countries can be screwy so it's best not taking the risks, unless reliable Wi-Fi can be provided. Granted, Newgrounds isn't the most phone friendly site out there but at least I can still cast my votes for the day. The site could do with a mobile version soon but maybe that's one thing they are looking into right now. Well, hopefully. Less and less people are using the internet on computers and more and more it becomes phone/table-based which neither are adaptable for Newgrounds for the main sections of the site.

If you are giving yourself some time to review submissions, that I feel is far more productive than continuing to gain points.
Eh, I still had no time to do some reviews. :(

Ah well. To be honest, I much prefer your communication here than you doing some reviews.

It's always a good idea to try and get points from the portal when you're depositing.
Yeah, maybe I will just vote 0 on five UJ entries, to at least gain some blams from time to time...

That's something you can try out and see how it goes.

I don't want to feel like I'm treating her like a possession and I much prefer an equal relationship so neither of us is more dominant than the other.
Yeah, that's one of the challenges of a relationship. You have to treat your partner with respect and have to listen to her wishes, but at the same time, you cannot let her take control over the whole relationship. Of course, this also holds true for your significant other. She can't let YOU take control over the whole relationship.

The whole dominance/submissive aspect of the relationship was something she didn't handle that well in the end. At first she liked having a clean start with me and being on equal ground but for a few days she enjoyed having a slightly more dominant status over me, although throughout she was more stepping over boundaries as to what I thought was/wasn't fine with her doing to me. It seemed all and good and I had my fun but since the night she mentioned how she'd much rather be submissive in the relationship, she didn't return to that self that I once knew. That was pretty much the turning point.

Simply put, I'd much rather be in a relationship where we enjoy our equal standing. While I can adapt to the other stepping over the line a bit, at the end of the day I'd rather we have our balanced half of the relationship. If a girl wants to be treated like a possession, they're asking out the wrong guy. Some men actually want to be nice to the one they love.

Another thing to avoid is to become "one person", when you are really two persons. I know, me and my wife, we always arrive together at parties, and we leave together. But at the party itself, we don't hang out too much together. There's one other couple I see from time to time, and they ALWAYS hang out together, constantly holding hands or having the arms around each other... and they really get on my nerves, heh. I mean, it's nice that they love each other. But this "being together 24/7" is just annoying.

The timing of when to arrive and leave a party is only natural. It's understandable why you two would be together in those cases. That said, I'm more than willing to allow my partner be able to talk to other people at the party. It helps to have company of others when you're out and about. Although, being together a lot at the start should be understandable since both will be excited to see each other and it'll be all they'll be thinking about.

Perhaps then I'll have a clearer mind on finding someone out there. Gotta try a few different methods and see what works out better than others. I personally don't think searching around Easter or Christmas is a good time since everyone will be too occupied with celebrating the holidays. That was why I didn't have relationships in my mind last November and December, although I did have someone in mind that I probably would have tried asking out but she was already taken.
The problem that you get with that is that what works with one girl doesn't necessarily work with another. Trial and error helps a lot, but I'm sure you'll sort something out some way.

All I can do is see how I approach some of them and if one fails, I'll just have to try someone else. I might be able to go by how they are as a person. Hopefully some that I've tried talking to will at least get back to me. For now all I want to do is have a general conversation and go from there.

I'm sure a relationship can happen at any time of the year but there are times when I feel I gotta look for someone until afterwards but hey, if things worked out better than expected then I really can't complain. Let's see what having bigger determination will do for me. I guess if I didn't fall in love with her at the end of January, I would have been at the same stage now doing the exact same things.
Post-Valentines day was a great opportunity, as people seem to be more open to it, especially if they have friends who are in a relationship, thus having a decent idea of the romantic gestures that they want.

You'd think people would try and get something arranged prior to Valentine's Day. The timing with my last relationship was more than convenient for it since when we got together it was only two weeks until it was Valentine's Day so we just gave each other a little something but nothing over the top as it was too soon. Just being together for that day was the most I was going to ask for, although Thursdays were the best days to see each other due to her college timetable. It was a very brief period but it was good while it lasted. Some good times are better than none.

Well, you know what they say - you can't make an omelette, without breaking a few eggs.
Touche.
I like sayings like that.

There's some reasonably strong statements to them and it's something to follow. I just gotta do things if I want something to happen. Now if only I could have better luck with getting a job.

Depends which Queensryche we're talking about. There's the one with Geoff Tate and one without. If it was the one with Geoff Tate, I certainly agree. If the other... I still agree. Tateless Queensryche needs to provide a few good albums on their own since the new direction.

I guess it's the Queensryche with the current line up.

I think I was about to post something with my alt account once, but realized my mistake just before I hit the post button.
I could have deleted your post if you had requested it via IM/PM. :P

Naah, too much trouble.

Since space is infinite (or at least, the universe is still expanding) there also are an infinite number of planets out there.
I have a hard time thinking space is infinite.

I guess this is because we just can't imagine something that is "infinite". ;)

Surely there's gotta be a point where it can no longer expand.

Scientists are sure that it will start to collapse at some point in the furute. But AFAIK, it's still expanding right now.

OR: They are so intelligent that they don't even recognize us. Really, when was the last time you tried to communicate with a worm? If for "aliens" we are just worms, they won't bother communicating with us.
Fair point to that. Earth can't be that special planet that some sci-fi shows/films try to make it out to be. A bit silly for me to say that since I love Futurama a lot and they like to centre around Earth a lot and then you have Doctor Who where the majority of Earth-based events as well as the companions are located in Britain.

Well, I think the viewers want to see at least something they can recognize. Or maybe it was just because they wanted to save some money when they first started the show. So they used locations based in Britain.

The one thing that always annoyed me in Star Treck was, that extraterestials ALWAYS looked the same and had the same character traits. Klingons are always agressvie, Ferengies are always sneaky, etc. Just humans might have had some different character traits within the same race...

Also, those other races always had just ONE government for the whole planet (or that's what it seemed like). And there don't seem to be different continents on other planets, where the inhabitants might look and behave differently. I mean, just look at the earth. An Inuit hardly looks like an Aborigine.

And it's still a place that's easy to get to from point A to point B without so much worry about traffic? I suppose Philip J. Fry had a point when he claimed no-one drove since there was too much traffic. :P

Well, if there's really much traffic and you are stuck in a traffic jam, then you have all the time in the world to figure out where you have to turn to reach your goal. :P

If there was one thing school never tried to teach me in Geography, it was learning all the states of America.

I don't think it's really that important to know the states of the USA when you are not living there in the first place. I know the federal states of Germany, and that's good enough for me. But I do know more US states than I know federal states of England, haha.

I don't expect instant changes to the portal but at least get some of the ongoing problems fixed already!

Exactly. Hell, just fix one thing per month (or, try fixing it at the very least). Then we could see some changes...

That "giving back missed Exp" thing is another thing that pisses me off. If you missed the deposit, you missed it. Tough luck. If I see another account gaining missed Exp back, I'm going to ask Tom if he can recover all my Exp I already missed...
The only exception I would ever agree is that the account was compromised.

I don't mind Coop asking (hey, you can always try), but I think it was the wrong decision from Tom to grant that wish.

Thankfully I have a phone now so the only times where I'll really need someone to deposit for me is if I ever go outside the UK. Use of internet on phones in foreign countries can be screwy so it's best not taking the risks, unless reliable Wi-Fi can be provided.

If you have an Android phone, you could always use the Tethering mode so the phone acts as an Wi-Fi spot. I did that with my wife's phone when we where on Amrum and the Wi-Fi at our home didn't work. But again, I would only do that in my home country and not in foreign countries, since your provider might charge you extra for that...

Well, hopefully. Less and less people are using the internet on computers and more and more it becomes phone/table-based which neither are adaptable for Newgrounds for the main sections of the site.

While I can see the advantage of a Smartphone with internet access when you are out, I still can't see myself only using a device with such a small screen and limited storage space. Hell, where would I store all the football matches I downloaded? I have 217GB of various football matches on my external drive. ^^

That's something you can try out and see how it goes.

I might start next week. For now, I'm happy with the small break.

If a girl wants to be treated like a possession, they're asking out the wrong guy. Some men actually want to be nice to the one they love.

I never believed in that "you have to be an asshole to get a girl" theory anyway. Or that stuff that some self claimed "Pick up artists" write about, is just a hughe pile of crap, imo. How about this one: Just be yourself. If the girl doesn't like you for who and what you are, then she's just not the right girl for you...

The timing of when to arrive and leave a party is only natural. It's understandable why you two would be together in those cases.

Also, there's not much we can do about anyway. We live together, so it would be silly, if one stayed behing while the other already went to the party, heh.

That said, I'm more than willing to allow my partner be able to talk to other people at the party. It helps to have company of others when you're out and about. Although, being together a lot at the start should be understandable since both will be excited to see each other and it'll be all they'll be thinking about.

Yes, we did hang out together at parties when we still where a "new couple". But after a while, it's only natural that you have different topics to talk about with different people.
