I think it's about time we all wake up from our winter sleep and get some life back into Wi/Ht... :P

You're in luck, I was planning to do the update this weekend.

Looking forward to it.

Checkin in first thing in the morning and get greeted by a lovely sight:

120,000 B/P

I know that this means I'm a hoary old veteran now, but in the just over 9 years I've been here, I've managed to go Supreme Commander 4 times around the clock!

A shame it only means that I've barely cracked the top 10, but oh well.

I remember getting 36k b/p not all that long ago. That must mean that I've accumulated my blam total in b/p (around 12k) since I came back last November. Cool.

You passed 6000 B/P! Congrats!
You passed 20000 Total Points. Bodacious!
33 of your posts have been e-mailed to your boss. Hope he has a sense of humor!

I don't get the last part because I don't have a job atm.

Wish I did, though...

I thought of two responses for that:
1. Sleep is for the weak!
and
2. No rest for the wicked!

I like the second response a bit better.

I still say users should get additional VP bonuses for reaching b/p milestones beyond SC. (Culminating in a 100% VP bonus, perhaps upon reaching 100K b/p.) Actually, I remember discussing that with you years back; in the Elite Guard Barracks, I think.

48,000 B/P.

Just another 179 blams and 1,821 saves left to go now. I'll probably end up hitting 38K saves before 12K blams, but hopefully they wont be too far apart. I'll have to start saving with an alt, if I reach my saves target first. lol

Well, since I was worth about 400-500 responses to the thread in a single year, that might explain a thing or two.
It's all you and Bahamut's fault. It seems like since he changed his name, he's just been hanging around FromADistance. >:(

Did you enjoy it?

3. In addition to Wintersun, I'll also be seeing Iron Maiden in London. Additional points for this day for meeting up with someone during the daytime who I quite like. :)

Wish they'd come a little closer, I can't afford it when I've got a substantial bill for a new car coming up...

Well, that just makes looking easier, because you can instantly cross them off the list. It's like playing "Guess Who", IRL
Of course, that does narrow down the list by a huge margin but other times I'll just complain that there aren't enough girls with the right personality.

Although, the way I approached it may have been vague so either it's a first date or a hangout. I can't say for sure, though but a hangout is the safer idea.

Play the companies at their own game? When you see a job advertisement, you should just sent a letter, saying that you are sorry, but that you cannot work at their company, because... and then insert those reasons that company give all the time.

Sometimes I wonder how they can come up with low numbers like this in the manual. Maybe they get out of the car every now and then and just push it?

I can't be too sure with what's going to happen but I do hope things will make a progress on that particular day. I haven't got much to worry about but rather I look forward to the day. I'll do what I can to make a best first impression but we should get to know each other more on that day as it develops.

Damn, that's some heavy news. Sorry to hear the loss about your grandfather. 91 is a really impressive age, though so he at least lived a long life.

I understand what you're saying there. One side of my grandparents both left in the 90s so I didn't get enough time to know them and to be with them whereas the other side of my grandparents have been around for all 23 years of my life so far.

The manufacturers tend to be more conservative in their estimations. Parkers is independent and tests the vehicles for the most accurate reading possible. I've not managed to get 60 mpg out of the Focus, but they quoted 60. I'd be happy managing that, as it means less of a fuel bill.

I was lucky enough to have 4 grandparents until 12, 3 until 23, 2 until 30 and still 1 today. I've come from good stock, apparently.

Well, you've had a lot on your plate lately, so I don't blame you.

Yeah, I'm looking for a new car, though.

Another car is something I need to start thinking about, as well. Mine's over 10 years old now and the list if issues is starting to grow a bit long. Too bad I don't have the money right now to get one...

Yeah, we've discussed this a lot, but that would still give my most hated user on Newgrounds a higher VP bonus than me. Sure, it would give me a chance to get more points and clear the place up single handedly, but fighting against the guys above me would be tedious.

If the final VP bonus was at 100K, then you'd be equal with your most hated user. Continuing on beyond 100K would just be for bragging rights, I guess. ;)

Thank You

Awesome idea. Now if only I could find someone to do that.

It has already been done. A guy wrote a book about that. But I don't think it has been translated to english. What a shame!

Sometimes I wonder how they can come up with low numbers like this in the manual. Maybe they get out of the car every now and then and just push it?
The manufacturers tend to be more conservative in their estimations. Parkers is independent and tests the vehicles for the most accurate reading possible. I've not managed to get 60 mpg out of the Focus, but they quoted 60. I'd be happy managing that, as it means less of a fuel bill.

Well, MY fuel bill amounts to just 0 anyway. :P Ah, the benefits of a good public transportation system.
However, I plan to cycle to work in the near future. It's 15km, so it should take me about one hour. That's about as long as I need now, using public transportation... only problem is: Where do I change my sweaty clothes after I got to work?
