    The international tier of the Wyrmwood table kickstarter that ran last October is supposed to ship in January 2022...

    Their update from today showed they've shipped tables for the following tiers:
    January 2021
    February 2021
    March 2021 (50/300)

    Hmmm....I think they're a little behind.

    I really like the levelling system, but my dude essentially had to be retired after, like, two missions, because getting hurt is super punishing.

    So I invented a sibling for him that turned out to be a way more fun character.

    I thought I'd watch a minute or two of this video to get the gist and I got sucked in and watched the whole thing - it's so interesting!


    Aaron Fletcher has grazed his sheep and lived off the land as a traveling shepherd for 12 years. He calls it guerrilla grazing (a step above guerrilla gardening, he says) and he lets his sheep graze - with permission- public parks and side lots. Homeless by choice, he offers his services to small farms in exchange for food or a place to stay (though half his calories come from his sheeps’ milk).

    With a tiny metal cart home pulled by his sheep, he has a bed, a refrigerator/evaporative cooler, a shower (he uses a pesticide sprayer to pump up the water pressure), power (solar panel), sun oven, a mailbox stove for heat, bicycle tire wheels and a corrugated plastic roof.

    Fletcher makes cheese and butter from his sheep milk and forages for seeds, fruits, vegetables and herbs. He’s created a map for foragers in his region. He makes some money with his scythe business - cutting noxious weeds for locals -, but he insists he’s not interested in making money and just hopes to serve as an example for other homeless interested in guerrilla grazing.

And I was like dude, stay in hotels. I then explained the difference between hostels and hotels. And he uh decided to look into hotels.

    Depends on the hotel, and the hostel. But he had luck finding hotel rooms for 50-60 Euros a night. And the hostels he was looking at were 35-40 Euro a night. And it made his mom happy.

    According to an expert (Rick Steves) age cutoff hostels are rare:
    Don't rule out "youth" hostels just because, by every standard, you're older than young. If you're alive, you're young enough to hostel just about anywhere in Europe (hostels with age cutoffs are rare).

    I know people who stayed in hostels and it seemed fine. Some stories seemed great.

    I won't stay in a motel and I am suspicious of anything less than $150 / night unless I feel we got a great deal.

    So if I'm dropping $x grand on a trip to anywhere I'm staying somewhere nice i dont have to wait for rando eurotrash to finish fucking before i can shit.

    The hotels didn’t seem scrub tier for 60 a night, but it’s likely because of Rona they weren’t booking up. The only place he had problems finding a good price was Berlin. That hotel seamed a bit sketch.
    I’ve traveled for business a lot and generally stay in sub 100 hotels because that’s the per diem. Hilton of Marriott business hotels are fine. Hampton inn is the Hilton one I usually shoot for. Even on vacation I’m like govvy contractor rate plz.

    Hello my friends!

    How it's going for you all?

    Here it's going fine. We got federal elections finising up at the same time as municipal elections are starting.. so we got a LOT of signs on our roads right now!

    (Note : In Québec, it's not often than you'll see a sign on a private propety. Here, the campaigns are 95% done on public land. You will often see one lamppost with 4-5 signs on it!)

    Letterkenny is a show on Hulu around rural Canadians (Ontario). It p. Much nails small town rural life, Canadian or not.

    Quebec people are one of the mirror villains and a big part of the show for a few seasons.

    -Makes launch Cyberpunk 2077 look good by comparison, I have an overclocked ryzen 3600 with 32gb of ram and a 3070 - that wasn't cutting it so I borrowed my roommates rtx 3090/threadripper system and it still runs like dog shit (hard hiccups every 5 seconds)
    -The AI is incredibly inconsistent, on one hand, stealth isn't an option in the game because somebody's going to psychically pinpoint your location and beam the GPS coordinates to everyone else, on the other hand they will happily file one at a time through a doorway, it's okay though because ~~~
    -All the guns in the game are dogshit, don't feel good to use, and jam every 10th bullet, to prevent you from just gunning everyone down. Your guy also refuses to carry more than 2 magazines of ammunition
    -There is no reason to explore the map, the game leads to where you need to go and then you just do that, and move on. Exploring the map is pointless because *anything* you find, including super powers, goes away when you die
    -I can't see myself ever being able to beat this game - I was expecting something like Dead Rising with the loop, where I would level up during loops and I would somehow unlock things that I get to keep at the start, to make it easier each time - no such luck here. This game has an asinine system where you "send to safe house" upgrade thingies you find, that you can't use when you find them, and have to go back to home base and the use a loadout screen to equip, which advances time to go to, and you lose all this shit when the loop resets - so what's the point? Lol you really want me to explore the map to find an uncommon upgrade that reduces weapon recoil by 5% that I wont be able to use until the next 1/3rd of that day's loop and the will disappear after that, requiring me to spend 20 minutes of my life to walk back and pick it back up if I want it?
    -I was expecting metroidvaynia type deal maybe? Maybe it gets there? I'm guessing 5 hours into this game every loop will be "you must do these 47 actions IN EXACT ORDER AND WITHOUT MAKING ANY MISTAKES" before you can "start" your loop attempt, because otherwise you'll just be unupgraded asshole with no superpowers and a shitty light smg

    Seriously, skip it, just play dishonored and delete your save whenever you die, it will be more satisfying, because at least the enemy AI is fun to fight and your weapons work

    I would really like a 2TB instead of a 1TB, but the price is too high. It is like around $360 for a 2TB. Compare that to the cost of an entire PS5, that is ridiculous.
