    Hey everybody, how ya all doing?

I know I shouldn't be letting myself get so rustled, but it ticks me off, and I don't even take part in the discussions. I get to where I want to, then I read on and have to just flee.

    The keyboard. On the iPod Touch, it had this nifty little feature where if you put in a piece of punctuation, then hit space, it would automatically shift back to the letters keyboard. Do any of you know if it's possible to make the Galaxy keyboard do the same thing?

    *nod* It's a nice phone indeed.

    Hrm... I don't know - I'm sure it's possible, but I don't know how to do it myself. I've gotten used to hitting the button to switch it back over to letters. *shrug*

    And hey, if someone manage to create an AI so advanced that I can talk to him or her for months or years while still being certain I'm talking to an actual human, then I think we've reached such an advanced level of technology that even our creations deserve to be called people...
    Sometimes I worry about that as well. Real life is worse. Most of what we say in a day is plain and a robot could say it too. A roleplaying forum is much better and free of worry. Nothing that runs on rules could make some of the silly stories we do.

    Hiya Drake, and thanks. It's not really a bad time I guess, just a time where a lot of negative thoughts are passing through my head. Sometimes it is just hard to shake. Otherwise I am well. Had an amazing sandwich.

    Major thumbs up! I am very glad to hear your teeth are doing better. I know how much teeth problems can really suck.

    Indeed! Heh I kinda feel like quoting this, it is so apt a description. Very well done Drex.

    *muffles slight snickering* That's sort of what I was thinking.

    I shall certainly try to. Though distracting myself is hard right now, I have to say that comment up there helped.

    Now it is my turn to sit and comfort you. And to be curious but to know that is not what needs to be known right now.

    ... :smalltearfulsmile: Wow...I am very glad that it worked out happily. For all the bad things I think about this world we live in, every now and then I have to admit that beautiful things can happen.

    Thank you very much. Explaining is hard. It all comes down to one little thing can me some sad, stressful thoughts for the future, and from there it spiraled to many stressful thoughts concerning friends, family, and my path in life. Explaining is difficult both because I don't really know how to put all of my thoughts without writing a small essay, and because I am not used to letting people have a close look into my mind and feelings. I am still the sort (kinda) how likes to bottle it all up to focus on caring for others, and let my problems sort themselves out. It has been recent discussions with my sweetheart that have led to me being a little more willingly open, while also making it tough to try to keep thoughts to myself. And I would perhaps grudgingly talk to her about it all, but she is having a very hard time right now with worries about an injured family member. So I very much want to do whatever I can to ease her mind and heart, and worry about my worries later.

    Heh wow even when trying to not write too much, I write a lot. Still, guess I can crawl out from under the bed now. *does so* Short cake sounds delicious. ^-^ I'm not sure if I have ever tried peaches. The thought of them sounds good...maybe I have?

    However, I did do some research into how to get rid of moths, assuming your problem is the clothes moth. I doubt it is, but it's the only species of moth I could find information on the removal of.

    1. Wash everything in hot water about once a month. This will kill the larvae and disrupt their life cycle.
    2. If it can't be washed, put it in the freezer, that also kills them.
    3. Don't heat your apartment during the Winter. That prevents them from being able to breed and proliferate during the Winter.
    4. Keep your apartment clean, regularly open windows to air the place and don't leave unwashed clothes lying around.
    5. Don't pack your wardrobes full. They love it when lots of fabric is stored together in dark places.
    6. Take special care of natural fibres, but leave out old wool to distract them from more expensive materials like silk.
    7. Clean, clean, clean. Everything. And thoroughly.
    8. Shake out everything in daylight about once a month. Hang rugs, curtains, cushions and upholstery in the sunlight as it repels the larvae.
    9. Moth balls are good too, but usually poisonous.



    Also, before I forget... Camphor, cedar and lavender are good. But camphor sometimes needs a higher concentration than naphthalene, cedar is difficult to get to high enough concentrations and won't kill adults and not everyone likes lavender.

    My esteemed Elemental, I take exception to your prescriptions enumerated in your post above me: for reasons.

    And those reasons are these, that there is the possibility also of budgies being in wardrobes who pose no threat to clothing at all; whether they are there to spy on the owner of the inhabited robes I cannot and will not speculate, but no matter --

    what was I saying? Oh yes, moth balls and camphor are irritating to budgies, and shaking any garment too vigorously could expel a comfortably napping budgie from its soft feathery coil within a pocket.

    Also it is very important that lots of fabric is stored together in dark places so that the budgies have lots of soft fluffy folds and corners in which to hide, and if their little black eyes glittering amidst the soft shadows seem to observe quite a bit about their environs and the activities carried out therein, well I cannot be bothered to speculate about their motives except to say that they are naturally curious creatures and that such motives are undoubtedly innocent.

    So please, folks, my purport is thus: do not investigate your wardrobes too thoroughly, and do not go out of your way to minimize the hiding places within; just let the budgies go about their assigned duties, and go about your own normal business as usual, and don't think too much about it and everything will be just fine.

    Hmm. Well, I'm all packed up for Dragon*Con. If you don't hear from me by the 5th of November, assume I've perished in some amusing Con-related mishap.

    Took a surprising amount of time to pack up everything, and I'm not even taking my Bonnie Prince Charlie with me, just the regular sporran, some stockings, and a bow-tie, because it's not like I'm going to get another excuse to wear a bow-tie.

    That reminds me, I still need garters. bleurgh. Preferably ones that aren't inviting further sexual harassment. Or whatever it is when people try to lift up your kilt to see your goolies. Darndest thing, really. I can only hope that the fact that men in kilts are one of the categories of people you'll find at every Con, along with George R.R. Martin look-alikes, will mean that people are less captivated by the mystique of looking under the kilt.

    It's too bad I've put on a little bit of girth, or I'd have been able to get a decent shot of myself in a banana suit wearing a kilt. Ah well, you'll just be stuck imagining that now. The banana wizard will have to be revisited though, I think.

    When all you have is a banana suit, every problem looks like the solution is fruit salad, I guess you could say.

    Fortunately for everyone involved, I haven't been able to smuggle the banana suit into the car yet. Probably would've overwhelmed the frailer con-goers anyway.

    I really appreciate how you've put this list together, however, there's nothing new we haven't tried.

    Simply put, nothing's helping the issue. The only way that we've managed to lower the amount of moths is how I basically have 90% of my clothes hidden out of moth-accessible areas, which means I've got half of all this crap in my luggage and the other half in my drawers. And it sucks, because I have clothes that are supposed to be hanging from the rail I've got, but eh, what's impossible is impossible.

    We have cedar, we have lavender, we have all sorts of things that are supposed to make clothes moths run away and die, but they just won't.

    I would greatly appreciate your fine presence in my closet, o' budgiest of my dear friends. However, finest featherling, I have one condition: you must spend your days snacking on clothes moths. They might not be the most nutritional and delicious things, but in order to enjoy my pretty dresses and scarves you must do something to protect them. I hope you understand, mo bhuidsidh beag! For nice things, you have to make some sacrifices.

    Not really, not in and on itself, but there's a line between spending most of my days mostly alone, and spending most of them completely alone, and I know that for me, that line is also a tipping point for eating disorders.

    Hmm, I'm not sure if there's any certain topic. I think I'm usually pulled into discussions where I feel I've got something important to add which no one has said already. Since I managed to adopt this policy, staying clear of discussions have been a lot easier, because usually, someone has already managed to say what you wanted to have said. Last time I seriously entered a discussion was a piracy debate which flared up in a thread about Game Dev Tycoon, and that was because I thought the debate was far too single-tracked. The main line of discussion had the thread locked no too long afterwards, so I only ever managed one post, but I didn't intend for more than two or three in that thread anyway...

    All in all, I've become a lot better at agreeing on disagreeing in the last years...

There's...kind of a bit going on and some bad thoughts on my mind, some things that could potentially likely happen, some things that have me stressed, and the more I try to not think of it the more I end up thinking of, even imaging worst case scenario conversations with people that I really shouldn't be doing. It's just...I don't want to go into details on it, and if I did I don't think I would have the words for it. But a year or two ago keeping this to myself and pretending to be all giggles and grins would have been easy, natural. Events and people in that time frame have made it impossible now for me to keep things like this hidden. Whether that is a good or a bad thing, I'll have to think about later. But yeah, keeping that inside was proving too hard. So I can say this much. I hope the depressing feeling and the fear and stress go away soon. And now I feel like I am saying too much. *hide under bed*
    *hugs*

    I think opening up has that effect, making you see yourself clearly and realise what issues you've buried inside, and it isn't easy. Do you remember how we talked a little less than a month ago when I was seeking professional help for myself, about how you could need such help yourself some day as well, but how we agreed that it probably wasn't needed then since you weren't actually suffering? Well, I think the time for it has come now. To me, it sounds like you need someone to talk to, to help you formulate your feelings and tell you what you sometimes find completely obvious yourself, yet need to be told anyway.

    If where you live works in any way like here, such an effort won't be easy, but I think it will be worth it. Having someone who can help you explain and organise your feelings and even give you advice on how to better take care of yourself has a wonderfully positive effect, even if I can't quite explain how, and I think everyone should be given the chance to see one once in a while just to get an outlet for all they've bottled up inside and never have mentioned out of fear of it being to insignificant and something they should just be able to "take".

    I hope your depressing and stressful feelings will go away, but if you ever feel like a professional could help, don't be afraid to seek one, a. And don't ever worry about any problems being too insignificant, I've talked about all manners of things with my kurator in the the last few weeks, and he has neither complained nor judged me. And if you feel like you just want to talk about anything, but don't feel comfortable with doing it openly, don't hesitate to PM me. I'm all ears.

    Ahh, I wasn't aware of the concept of a baby shower (I just looked it up), so I didn't pick up on it then. Good to hear they're all safe and sound!

    Well, don't overestimate a robot's ability to be inconsistently consistent. It's easy to make a robot wholly consistent, you only need to record a few statements and play them in return to being addressed, but that's easy to see through, because what it's being told is usually inconsistent. It's also manageable to make a robot believably inconsistent in its responses, but then it's hard to make it act consistently instead (see Cleverbot for example).

    And I'm not going to bore you with neural networks and how the constraints of the human mind works, but I'll give you that nothing that runs on rule sets as simple as even the most complex ones we've managed up to today could make such stories, but I reserve myself for that the future may surprise us. Because if there's something that's easy to predict, it's that the future will surprise us.

So far a little glad one of my friends hasn't made an account yet. He would be the type if he say an online argument to make the situation worse just to see what would happen. Still he is my friend and usually very nice. It's just that if I had to give him some type of alignment it would be LN or TN at best.

    I...don't know how to think about it. I mean, I don't feel like I need the professional, because I do not feel like a danger to my own well being or others'. The worst that this leads me to is occasional moments of doing nothing but sitting and thinking, and hasn't led to dangerous habits.

    But I will admit that I am more than likely incapable of judging myself well enough to know that for sure. So maybe. I don't even know where to get started looking for assistance. For now I just feel more comfortable talking to friends. I think it is something I will think on when my head is a little clearer. I may need a nap later today, my head is foggy and I didn't sleep a lot last night. When it is easier to think then maybe, perhaps it will make more sense.

    That all said...I guess expect a PM soon, okay? Thank you though. I am feeling kinda mostly better. All I have at the moment is difficulty thinking or concentrating due to sleepiness. It is taking so long to type all this out and I keep making mistakes, hehehe.

    That reminds me, I still need garters. bleurgh. Preferably ones that aren't inviting further sexual harassment. Or whatever it is when people try to lift up your kilt to see your goolies. Darndest thing, really. I can only hope that the fact that men in kilts are one of the categories of people you'll find at every Con, along with George R.R. Martin look-alikes, will mean that people are less captivated by the mystique of looking under the kilt.

    It's too bad I've put on a little bit of girth, or I'd have been able to get a decent shot of myself in a banana suit wearing a kilt. Ah well, you'll just be stuck imagining that now. The banana wizard will have to be revisited though, I think.

    When all you have is a banana suit, every problem looks like the solution is fruit salad, I guess you could say.

    Fortunately for everyone involved, I haven't been able to smuggle the banana suit into the car yet. Probably would've overwhelmed the frailer con-goers anyway.
    Have fun, comrade!

    I thought every kid got canned peaches in some school lunches. That doesn't mean that you ate them of course. But they should have been around. But it doesn't matter. A canned peach is a lot different from a fresh one. Canned ones are thick and strong and fresh ones are light and juicy.

    Hot short cakes, fresh peaches cut up, and whipped cream. I think the best part is the bottom of the bowl when there's melted cream and fruit juice.

    Super. I don't know if I'll ever listen to it, of course, my backlog is 200 albums large. But I have been making eyes at it since it came out.

    Uh... "better"?
    Ah, yes - your depression from your lack of protein. That is good!

    Yeah. Still don't know how that happened. Protein's in everything isn't it?

    Nope. Just been occupying myself with learning how to hard boil eggs.

    *nods*

    Title track is pretty good, and mostly just sounds like Clutch. Crucial Velocity is alright, nothing special. Mr. Freedom almost has a Blast Tyrant-esque feel to it - it's a great song. DC Sound Attack is reasonably good; it's got a nice 12-bar blues vibe (even if it technically isn't that for a lot of the song). Unto the Breach is pretty good, but again, mostly just sounds like Clutch. Gone Cold is great, although it's a bit of a different style to most of the band's other stuff. The Face is pretty good; it's got a slightly different vibe than I'd normally attribute to Clutch, but it still definitely sounds like them. Book, Saddle, & Go is a good song. Cyborg Bette is an excellent song. Oh, Isabella is a good song, although it doesn't really stand out much. The Wolf Man Kindly Requests... is also a good song. Listening through the album, I can hear that the guitarist uses an effect similar to that of the Black Keys guitarist on several of the solos.

    Overall, the album sounds like a good mix of their other good albums with added reverb. It's great (not Blast Tyrant, but that's an unfair comparison) and I'd definitely recommend it.

    Well, that's because you're the host, comrade.
