    The embed feature has a few quirks when it comes to linking to stuff on the forum.

    New forum issues/features here (Atomic πi)

    Afaik you can't. Is this an issue you're having, where you don't want a new paragraph?

    Thanks. I've been trying to compile a list, and there are a few former members I can't remember the names of. I have those two, tho.

    Good question. Were you banned at some point?

    What's on your mind?

    You quoted 40b leaving the economy. I'm just trying to work out how much of that is actually leaving the economy.

    Is there a high proportion of money spent on gambling in Australia that ends up offshore, rather than sitting onshore or being redistributed via winnings and wages and facilities and local taxes?

    You'd expect better from people who bemoan the laziness of modern social media users, right?

    Out of the economy. That's such an odd turn of phrase. Like how people talk about how Centrelink payments are taking money 'out of the economy'.

    I think Leo's probably more likely. Different addictions are different, but I mean, I guess we could just make the drugs free, if we want to literally just push money through specific economic laneways and not others.

    Let's say we somehow got rid of gambling. Where's that money going to actually go to, next?

    Also, higher taxes for health is just a proxy for more funding for health, and America has amazing funding for its health. Shame about the outcomes.

    I didn't say that, tho'. Many a time I'd rather have been dead, than bored. Depends what kind of boredom is more common in the countries in question, really. And whether 'boredom' is being used there as code for 'life is too easy, we need to make people struggle to survive again so they're not bored'.

    Other forums negatively impacted Atomic, too. Small niche platforms live and die by being small and niche.

    ...by changing their tax system around a bit, presumably?

    My leg and the last 2 months

    Now the pneumonia has passed, I guess you'll be back flying again in no time! Are you adjusting to having more spare time ok?

    Ah ok, I thought it had been touch and go for a while. Glad it's getting better!

    My leg and the last 2 months

    Sugar's used for a lot of reasons: it's a preservative, it has mechanical effects depending on what's being done with it, but mostly because, like salt, people get used to a certain amount in their food and complain if it's not there. Kind of like alcohol, I guess? I don't really need supplements, but I also don't need medication daily to get by, so horses for courses, I guess. Maybe you're not eating enough desserts for breakfast. Kids mostly still think that if they don't like something, that means they don't have to eat it. Any word on what's happening with the shop, @TheManFromPOST? I'd still like to come up one weekend and visit, and I'd hate to think I missed my chance.

    Damn kids these days, getting into the modcave, leaving underwear and dirty dishes strewn across the servers!

    Pretty good, eh? Now if only @Chaos.Lady would stop breaking the site so we didn't need to do this! :<

    Google are doing away with chromecast audio

    I think the trick was to pick them up on sale, online, which is now a tad difficult :< I was umming and ahhing about getting one, but the chromecast in the living room is already on the TV connected to the hifi amp, and the amp in my room is connected to the PC.
  24. Splendour is one of my faves atm, so I like that Spice Road takes a lot of similar elements. After one game, I'm still getting my head around the similar but different mechanics: only being able to play one card (or reset) per round feels like it slows the game down a lot, but also forces a different kind of play, in terms of generators. I dig the 'Ticket to ride' vibe Iberia has, but truth be told I barely remember how the original works at this point.'
