As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I went to Fencing practice at my University today. It was the second meeting as far as I know (I missed the first one or it was canceled. Conflicting stories abound).
I am not the most physically active fellow, but I am well acquainted with a little basketballin' here and there, which is why I am asking "Why in Christ's name was this so hard?" All we did was footwork, namely working on stance, advances, retreats, and lunges. Anyone who has had a little experience with the sport probably knows what I'm going to say next - OW OW OUCH, MY FLIPPING THIGHS. We practiced for an hour and my legs are burning like Vido at the end of Zaeed's loyalty mission (ME2). What gives? I've exerted myself over longer periods of time and not had this much soreness afterward.
Also, I gots mad scoliosis dawg, which means holding posture can be kind of annoying. I got corrected a lot on this.
Succinctly Summarized for Scrutiny: Fencing practice is hard, am I a wimp? Also, general "How To Not Suck At Fencing" advice would be stupendous. I intend to actually not suck at a sport for real, so bring the heat.
... They ate, slept and worked. Some of them found uninteresting partners at work who they married and came home to. Sometimes they would half-heartededly thrust into each other and children were made. They lived a middle class existence until their deaths to heart disease and cancer.
