  4. I still don't have cable set up at the new place, but I've managed to get internet access on my desktop using a slightly convoluted method.

     

    My cell phone has as unlimited data plan, but no USB tethering. My mom gave her old phone to my wife, but it has no service. I connected her phone to mine via WiFi hotspot, and connected it to my computer via USB.

     

    I can't help but feel that I beat the system in some small way.

      Welcome back to the internet.

      Also you reminded me of this:

      I sure have some screws up in my head loose as well.

  6. I just had a random thought that blossomed into an extreme annoyance.

     

    I was on Messenger with my wife and son while they are in New York visiting family, a thousand miles away from me. I miss them terribly. As happy as I was to see their faces, the blurry, pixelated video call was dropped at least five times in less than fifteen minutes.

     

    Now I'm not complaining about a lack of service or anything like that, because I got to see and talk to them and that's much more than a lot of people have.

     

    It crossed my mind that in a few military movies that I've seen, someone is talking to family on video feed, in perfect DVD quality, and then suddenly the call is cut off for dramatic effect.

     

    If a video call from one location in the United States to another is crap, I really hope that the military has a better connection for the sake of the people who are so far away from their families and might never see them again.

  7. Feeling melancholy and just a bit home-sick. I talked to family and some friends over the weekend and I really miss everyone there.

     

    On top of that, my grandmother passed away a few weeks ago and I didn't even get to say goodbye, much less be able to attend the funeral. She was the sweetest, most kind person I've ever known. If there is a Heaven she'll be the first one in line.

     

    I'm doing pretty well overall, I still love it here and my family life has been great, it's just all this hit me at once. I will always question whether I made the right decision.

      "So-and-So Liked A Status Update"

       

      by Megalyth

       

      Once upon a time, in a boring village, there was a man named So-and-So. One day, he came across a wild status update that smelled vaguely like bread, and he liked it very much.

       

      The End

  10. Between my computer being inoperable and staying caught up with bills, I haven't been able to get internet in the house yet. Hence, I have used up all my phone data watching YouTube videos, and now I only have the bandwidth for text and small images.

     

    So, I'm looking for some suggestions for short stories or novellas that can be read in an hour or two. Creepypasta is fine, any style really, although I'm not really into Victorian romance.

  11. Earlier today I bought some DVDS for my son, and when the cashier scanned one of the Dino Dan DVDs, the cash register required my birth-date. I guess when they say "for ages 3 and up" they fucking mean it.

      We can't have underage kids watching Dino Dan. Just think what kind of society that would produce... *shudders*

      I get a kick out of the warning label on this product:

      Getting carded for Dino Dan takes the cake, but another one that struck me as odd was for a two-dollar sharpening stone from Walmart. Not a knife, not a canister of flammable liquid, not a potentially abused medicine, but an inert block of abrasive material.

  12. I think my hard drive has fully kicked the bucket. Don't worry, all my work is backed up within a day or so of the failure. I'll continue to miss deadlines and disappoint my adoring fans for years to come.

      Sorry to hear that. Hopefully setting things up anew isn't going to be too much work.

    2. Megalyth

      Hard drives are cheap enough, it's more of a pain in the butt than anything. I've seen it coming for a while now, ever since it started making god-awful scary sounds intermittently. I've been much more diligent about backing up irreplaceable files these days.

       

      I might actually need to be institutionalized if I lost my works-in-progress, my music collection, my pictures of my family, etc.

    3. Megalyth

      What really sucks is that I had this grand-ass plan to play Requiem again. I keep having fleeting reminiscings about it from time to time, and when I actually sit down to immerse myself... blammo.

  13. Hello Megalyth. Do you want to play a game?

     

    So this happened as preparations for the trip to the Midwest were nearly complete. The truck was packed, my mother and sister we're about to head to Walmart to get some things, we were supposed to meet them there, and then we'd hit the road.

     

    We were talking for a less than a minute, and in that time Max wandered off.

     

    We didn't think much of it, we assumed that he'd went to play with tools in the garage or talk to the animals. No big deal.

     

    Except that he hadn't done that. We couldn't find him anywhere. Thus began the panic.

     

    I ran myself ragged through the woods, to the river and highway, anywhere that I could think of that this kid might have disappeared to.

     

    After a panicked call to 911, he strolled out of my brother's RV, not 20 feet from where it all began, and said:

     

    "HI MOMMY! HI DADDY!"

     

    Needless to say this event took about 17 years off my life span. Maybe it's something that gets learned the hard way, but the moral of this story is: watch your children. They will take off faster than you realize.

     

    I've never been so terrified in my life, and I wouldn't wish that feeling on anybody.

      Fuck, that must have been terrifying. Kids seem to have this magic ability to disappear in 1 second if you turn your back

      Glad to hear everything turned out ok, thanks for sharing the story Mega :)

  14. Still getting settled in here. I started my new job yesterday after spending all weekend driving, so I had very little time to go through things. 

     

    I like it so far, it's similar to the job I left behind. Everyone I know tells me I should pursue a career in computers or some kind of tech, but i don't really enjoy that. I like banging around on old machinery and figuring out repairs on things that I've never seen before and are 100 years older than I am. It's oddly satisfying and rarely frustrating in the way that computers can be when they just won't fucking work.

    1. UglyStru

      UglyStru

      IT for 7 years, soon to be junior software dev... can confirm computers fucking suck.

       

      Unfortunately, that's where all the money is. Good thing is there's a lot more you can do with computers. Engineering, development, database, networking, hardware, software, support, security, analysis, etc. The Information Technology field is so fucking huge, and soon that's gonna be all there is. Hell, even the medical field is getting smaller due to robots and shit. Don't need a heart surgeon when someone developed a robot that is so precise that it can sew the skin back onto a grape. 

       

      Blue collar work is going the way of the dinosaur. Don't let anything stop you from doing what you want, but the harsh reality is that the demand for the job is getting smaller and smaller every day. 

    2. Megalyth

      Megalyth

      That's true, but industry is alive and well in this area. The company I just started working for even has several robots, but there are many tasks that a human can simply do faster and better.

       

      Obviously I'm not looking to work my ass off for the rest of my life, but for the time being I'm enjoying the challenge and experience gained.

       

      I've always liked computers, having grown up using them, and I don't want that to change. If I have to work on them all day, I won't feel like coming home and using them even more, be it for mapping or whatever else, much the same way that people who work at fast food places get sick of eating burgers.

    3. UglyStru

      UglyStru

      It depends, really. I'm on a computer all day, and once I get home you wanna know what I do? Sit at my computer until my girlfriend gets home from work. It's a nice feeling when you're at a computer and don't have to work =P 

  15. Getting ready for the big move. I tried not to think about it too much, but it hit me hard today. I've never done anything like this before, so pulling up deep roots and leaving family and friends behind to move far away is weighing on me.

     

    I'm not afraid of things not working out for me, but I can't help but worry about who and what I'm leaving behind. It's a bittersweet situation.

     

    Signing off for now, wish me luck !

      The internet brings us closer together. Remember to send your friends and fam a "hey what's up" text message often, and comment on their facebook posts a lot. Get in the habit of calling just to say hi. It sucks to not be physically close because it takes a little work to stay connected and relevant in your old friends lives. I've been kinda scared of living too far away from home but having just visited Europe showed me how much of the world I haven't seen yet. So Im leaning more towards getting tf out of here now than ever before.

      After I get settled in at my new place. 

  17. The relocation is happening, I took a job in my other home-town in Illinois. Similar work and a little less pay than what I'm making now, but I'll have an entire house, rent-free, for my family to live in.

     

    This is all happening really quickly, I'm a bit apprehensive but excited too.

    1. Neurosis

      congrats on the house for the fam, that's always a good thing

    2. Nine Inch Heels

      Congratulations. I really hope that it all will work out well for you from here on out. I would imagine having your own house together adds a whole new feeling to, well, basically everything. I'm really happy for you.

    3. Dragonfly

      Doesn't that mean you essentially have MORE disposable income now though? If so, even better.

       

      Regardless, congrats on the new job! :)

  20. My wife just informed me that we're having pizza and "gangster salad" for dinner. I'm constantly reminded that I married the perfect woman.

     

    There will be bread involved.
