#1197805 And What Are You Listening To?

Posted by Cybes on 16 November 2017 - 04:21 AM

As a fan of both Led Zep and Amy Lee, I heartily approve.

#1197728 Bitcoin trading.....

Posted by Cybes on 13 November 2017 - 09:34 AM

I ended up losing all the earnings and money in my trading accounts over the weekend as the price of bitcoin dropped about 2000usd. Ah well, maybe I'm not meant to be a bitcoin trader after all :D

Keep the bc you have! If you possibly can, acquire more now when the price is low - it'll recover. Even if it never gets as good as it was (it'll probably surpass it) you'll make a better return than selling your now-cheaper ones.

...gamble till you double your money, and then reclaim the original investment part...

Yes. Also, don't gamble what you cannot afford to lose.

10 Day Update BUMP! (Help, please send money)

If I had it, I would.

#1197515 What's on your mind?

Twits on twitter can now spam everyone with 280 characters instead of 140 (that includes the POTUS)

Less "dot dot dot" fun for Corbert. Given the orangutan's liking for multiple messages anyway, though, it probably won't have much more impact - his tiny hands would get tired. ;p

Called it!

OMM is a mate who is in some deep cancer shit :(

Sympathies. It's a 1:3 roll, but a shitty one to get the 1 on.

A lot of the cops people in this country tend to be idiots...

FTFY. Cops are just a subset of the whole, and the whole is pretty damned average. Funny that.

Now, if you'd said "assholes" (or "officious powertrippers" if you want to be slightly less offensive), I'd have left "cops" in place. For all the good guys who join to help the world be a better place, there's more who join to (or get very comfortable with) being in a position of authority.

#1197278 how crap is this government ?

[Xeno & SA politics] Ahh yes of course he returns ... wonder how long that will be a good thing for him ... going back is never as easy as first assumed. imo.


True;  but then he also got some ridiculous percentage of the state ballot last time he stood here.  It'll be interesting, if nothing else.


TBH, I think the anti-wind farm stance he's shown since going federal will hurt him more than anything else.  If he has always believed in "infrasound wind farm sickness" he kept it under his hat, before.  It got him pretty roundly laughed at here, at least amongst the people I know.

#1197242 Star Citizen / Squadrdon 42 - a real PC game

Posted by Cybes on 28 October 2017 - 06:51 PM

Citizencon has just concluded, and there is a lot of very cool video to watch if you're interested.  I'm not going to link all of it - you can go to the the Star Citizen YouTube channel if that's your thing (it was mine, but be prepared to lose an entire day).


The main point of interest for casual followers has to be just Chris Roberts' presentation, so here it is.  Skip ahead to 11:28 to get straight into it.  Do yourself a huge favour and watch it fullscreen with as much resolution as you can get.

Ludlam ... GONE

Xenophon ... OK


I like Nick, but he has some distinctly loopy ideas.  I'd very much prefer to trade him for Ludlam - even if Scot has his own unrealities to deal with.

How could you possibly think they would be worth going to prison for ?

I wasn't talking about assassination - I was joking about revolution: up against the wall style.

Joking, because first, for all that this mob of plutocrats think that the country belongs to them and the rest of us mere serfs, government is actually a good thing and we need one in order for a complex society to function.
Second...Australians? Be serious. The most outraged any group here has ever been were the fresh drongos at Eureka, and that really wasn't much of a stoush (1500 rebels - if the PTwere had been bloodthirsty about it, they would have been crushed). In recent times, we can't even get pissed enough to riot properly. The yank riots burn down entire neighbourhoods and have body counts; Cronulla had two stabbings (no fatalities) and lots of hurt feelings. ;p

#1197059 What's on your mind?

Speaking of work...

...This guy is being a bit liberal in his interpretation of "low flying practice".


I was never in the AF, so I can't speak with authority, but I imagine someone's going to be spoken sternly to.  With volume.  My civilian instructors would have been a bit toey if I'd been below the terrain, or that close to the public whilst doing it, and a single prop trainer is nowhere near as exxy nor as easy to lose. And military brass have a bit of a rep for being somewhat unforgiving.

#1196882 Roll Call!

Still breathing.

Was just wondering if you were still around. 'Mazing what the net of a Meet pulls in. ;)

Yeah not such a cool little sentence from J. but you know, this guy Weinstein has previously been lauded by all the high profile Dem. ladies like Senator Clinton and Mrs Obama and even Whoopie has allowed herself to be photographed in the background of a photo with the infamous Weinstein and Mrs Obama.

I'm aware of Weinstein's puted behaviour, and I agree that it's both disgusting and indefensible. None of which justifies the "name like" comment. That's (stretch) like saying "Well, what do you expect of a Catholic?" about Hitler's pogroms - kinda way out of scale, but it's similarly detached thinking.

As for the donation... If it were me, I'd be very inclined to keep the money as well: money doesn't care where it came from, and I'm not bound by geas to do his bidding because of it - might as well use that scumbag's money to do something worthwhile.

Regulation of gun parts is different


...I have an idea: Ban firing pins.  Those are gun parts.


Yeah, yeah - I know. ;p
