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!

    Dear fucking god these meetings are boring. I mean I gave up on them but it turns out to be too noticeable to my supervisor so here I am. And the forumula hasn't changed: two senior academics hammer about semantics while someone who like 99% of scientists sucks at presenting stumbles through a badly laid out presentation.

    Dear god I need a tablet so I can more easily not pay attention without being explicitly rude.

    It makes me sad that No Country for Old Men was really more to honor the Cohen Bros than to signal the changing of opinions by the Academy.

    If you lived in the House MD universe you could just make wise cracks out loud and then no one would want you around. But they couldn't fire you because you would be right.

    Yeah...work meetings are the worst, I actively loath them. They are absolute productivity killers. Throw in a little of the "bike shed" mentality and you're looking at 2+ hours of sitting in a chair listening to two people argue over minor details while everyone else sits around staring longingly at the door or their watches.

    I dislike thumb drives where the connector cover is held in place by friction fit rather than some kind of mechanical clip.

    I always just end up losing the cover in a matter of days because it falls off.

    OK, I had Office 2003 before I reformatted. I wrote down the product key beforehand. Now I can't find my stupid disc nor a website that still has Office 2003 trial edition. Microsoft's website has moved on apparently and no longer offers older trial versions of their stuff.

    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/CD001022494.aspx

    I don't want to use Open Office. Where can I find a trial edition of 2003 without using a torrent site?

    Use [strike]Open Office[/strike] LibreOffice.

    I'm going to give them some time to work out the bugs. I seriously don't think it'll be stable come 11.04

    It's called the bike shed effect. The basic idea is that if you're giving a presentation on something extremely complex like a nuclear facility, people will just trust you know what you're doing and give you the benefit of the doubt. But if you are say, presenting something simple, like a bike shed, everyone will feel the need to give their input and drag down your presentation into one giant argument over details.

    Yeah. In my area there hasn't been too much going on, other than all of the D and C cell batteries being sold out and people stocking up on some emergency supplies and water.

    I'm just watching the news with my teachers while they're discussing what's going on in the reactors in Fukushima.

    In science presentations, it is incredibly complex and everyone wants to put in their opinion on how your project should be handled. I call it the nuclear bikeshed.
