    My complaint. Laptop computer no longer recognizes the power cord that came with it, so it won't recharge the battery. The cord apparently has lost its grabbiness and just falls out of the laptop. So does my hubby's identical powercord, just falls out with the slightest movement.

    No complaint. But, my hubby's identical laptop will recharge my battery, so it's within the laptop where the grabbing/charging no longer occurs. His battery is now in my puter, and so I can use it.

    Gonna be nice and chilly tonight in the Los Angeles area maybe 36F. After a summer that seemed to last for a year, it's a relief.

    Output of entiire industrialised world bought undone by a fraying power chord *facepalm* :lol:

    DRy heat for us today

    Certainly in this part of the industrialized world, production ceased, with a lot of loud and critical commentary and some loud shouts of disbelief at the cost of replacing said cord, and or said battery from said hubby. All is well now, as we are successful with the battery switching and production will resume with new goodies obtained from the low low low sale from DAZ for items that will run in my old versions of Studio (3 and 4).

    It's finally raining where I am, near Los Angeles! Yay! Not very cold either. Thermometer outside says 50F. The rain is polite. It drips, then stops, drips, stops. All day, easy to step outside and not get soaked. Complaint: Barely enough to soak the ground beyond a thin layer. We have a municipal water use surcharge, so neighbors simply stopped watering, and so many trees have withered to death in our neighborhood from lack of water. We had some good rains a few years ago, but that was El Nino effect which I guess has left. Our ancient floor heater was replaced by a craftsman who still knows how to install such ancient devices, a new one which was off by 1.5 inches, but he made it fit. Toasty! Our fireplace is unuseable after an earthquake which left the chimney stable, but cracked the fire resistant brick lining. Cost at time of estimate was $10K. It's probably 3x that by now. It looks lovely with a a pair of andirons, and a votive candle, total cost about $5.

    I think the El Nino oscillation means when it rains here it is dry there and vice-versa. We just had fifteen years of dry, our turn to be wet now, they don't call us the land of drought and flooding rains for nothing. But we don't get earthquakes, we missed the Pacific ring of fire by a thousand miles or so phew, our wild fires are ebil enough :lol:

    Rain is gone, just a few puffy clouds so it's going to be very cold for us tonight. Might get to 30sF.

    I've read a little news about the wildfires in Australia, and the flooding. Very scary!

    Hi M F M, we were wondering where you were.

    I just noticed that Victoria 5 comes with different breast shapes.

    I see you found the ridiculous shape! :-P Or should I say a ridiculous shape?

    So I'm sitting here reading this thread because I'm curious what you all have been up to lately... Well, that and I got bored waiting for a render to complete...
    Yeah... so I'm just sitting here and I start to feel itchy... like I have little hairs tickling me...
    I scratch my arm.. my forehead... my neck...
    nothing too odd...
    But after a while it keeps happening...
    Only now it starts to feel like something is walking on me...
    lots of somethings...
    I turn the light on and find hundreds of little spiderlings all over me (mostly me), my desk and my keyboard.

    Thank you mother nature for sharing your wonder and beauty...
    Now get it the hell off of me.

    Just though I'd share that with those of you with arachnophobia.

    Sleep well.


    You're mean! I don't have that problem, though. I like spiders...though maybe not that much. :) I saw a thing on the weather channel dot com today about a town where there was major flooding. Afterwards there was what appeared to be snow all over. It looked like a blanket of snow in the picture. But it was spider webs...thousands and thousands of them. :bug:

    Dana

    So what do you call that, a swarm of spiders? Blanket doesn't sound important enough. Swarm of spiders? Like swarms of goblins in the Hobbit movie?

    Blankets are plenty important...go to bed in the middle of a cold winter night without one.

    But actually, I call it spooky, creepy, and good that it was far from me. I like spiders, but I hate walking through one of their webs. Especially when it hits me in the face. Eww!

    Yeah, there are some pretty good PC items. There always have been. They're even better when they're on sale for $1! It's hard to complain about that.

    Getting a job seems to have all sorts of ridiculous hurdles these days. I remember just walking with the want-ad in the paper to my prospective place of employment, and getting hired, starting the next Monday. My granddaughter just got her first job---at a 99cent store! She's graduating with honors from high school, but that's who was hiring in her neighborhood that wasn't a food service job. She's a cashier, and learning to stock shelves. It's valuable experience, but jeeze, I had hoped for better for my descendants! My hubby decided to try for a job at the airport. He passed the tests, he passed the interviews, he met all the criteria, he was on the list. Then he got a notice that he could not fill the position---because he had a tattoo on his hand! Don't those guys wear gloves anyway? It's a tiny silly thing compared to today's taste in tats, barely noticeable, and of course a bandaid or a glove would have solved the problem. But he qualified in all the other stuff, but was really on the truth of it, too old. They are not allowed to say that or use that as a consideration. But I ask yez, in the city of Los Angeles, at the airport, what are the odds that others have more vibrant, more coverage, more controversial, or just more tats? He was just too old, and so am I. Today's employers can choose among younger people who don't remember days off, paid holidays, dental, vision and medical benefits, overtime pay, bonuses, and regular 40hours work week, are more credentialed, and more likely to go with the flow, as we used to say.

    ...yeah, age is an issue even though (supposedly) there are laws against discrimination. Companies would rather hire some kid fresh out of college o trad school with no life experience because they feel they can get away with paying them less and they (the grads) won't care because they feel fortunate they have a "foot in the door". Us older more experienced folks, well because of all the years we put in, we might demand more for out services than they want to offer. I really really hate it when I'm told I'm "over qualified". I don't really care if the position is a notch or two "beneath" the qualifications on my resume, I need a bleedin' job to keep a roof over my head.

    In this case, accepting a step or two backwards can actually move one forward.

    Now granted, because of certain physical limitations, I am not a good candidate for a position that requires a lot of muscle or very fine dexterity. That makes it tough enough as it leaves out most manual labour, warehouse, and assembly positions which make up a large portion of the "unskilled" labour force here. However to be passed over because of age is to say the least, very discouraging. I would actually appreciate it if they just stopped being so bloody evasive sometimes and flatly said they didn't hire me because I'm too old.

    Of course then they might feel I could have a case to press. Yeah right, like I can afford an attorney who is better than their shysters, and even if I won, would I want to work there afterwards?

    I saw Elysium the other night at the neighbourhood cinema (where my old age at least gets me senior rates). I couldn't help but feel that society wise, this could be where we are heading.

    I'm up and had 1 cup of coffee. Evidently the spiders didn't get me last night. Reports that Austin had some light snow, but my daughter said it was gone by 7:30 when she got up. Lots of wrecks on the icy roads though.
