On the Buses

by Purple Wyrm on June 18, 2015

Fascinating bus journey today courtesy of a fellow a few seats back loudly telling the story of how he stole a car in Adelaide, drove it to Sydney, had all his money stolen by ‘a tranny’ in Kings Cross, and ended up in jail in Tamworth.

Oh the people you meet on Transperth!

You know those dreams where there’s a really awesome shop, and then you wake up and forget the dream, but halfway through the day you remember the really awesome shop and for a moment you think it’s real and then you remember it was just a dream and there’s no really awesome shop?

I hate those dreams.

But I tell ya, if Games Workshop branches were as amazing as I dream they are, there’d be a lot less whinging in the tabletop community.

(I dream about Games Workshop. It’s hard to put into words just how sad that is).

Sean Bean probably won’t die

by Purple Wyrm on June 9, 2015

It’s always a gamble when one of your favourite books gets turned into a movie. Even more so when said movie stars Matt Damon. But the trailer for *The Martian* actually looks pretty good.

I can already spot a few things they’ve done differently, but I think I can see why, so that’s cool. And it’s at least one movie in which Sean Bean is unlikely to die (no guarantees though…).

Well, it looks like Fallout 4 is go, and it’s set in Boston. I imagine the Institute will play a role.

Huzzah!! 😀

Of course I’ll probably need a new computer to run it :(

Strong Medicine

by Purple Wyrm on June 2, 2015

You know it’s going to be a rough day when FADADES doesn’t get you up and moving, and you have to resort to Whitehouse.

Also, Joan Kirner passed away. I’ll always remember her appearance on the Late Show…

That is all

What is this I don’t even…

A client is having problems importing data from Excel into one of our systems. They’ve provided (after much prodding) a sample file so I’ve asked them for details on exactly how they’re trying to import it – what options they select, etc. Today I got the following response…

“Yes, this is the one of the way to import file (not direct way), just copy and paste to suit Excel import format column, then import it.”

Even if that was written in comprehensible English I suspect it would not answer my question.

This is How the World Ends

According to the always entertaining and informative Jason Colavito there are people out there (OK, one person) basing their view of human history on not just a literal interpretation of the Bible, and not just a literal interpretation of the books left out of the Bible, but on game supplements for Vampire: The Masquerade. Which they apparently think are genuine historical documents.

That’s it. I’m out. Build me a rocketship because I’m heading to Mars to start human society over again.
