Like resolutions but with a firm admittance that I'm not really in the business of tracking my own progress on anything. I can only do what I can. So these are all things I would like to do, some are personal, some are for the family. I want to do more socialising but at the moment it's so hard to plan or think about what that might take. I'd love to get back into roleplaying face to face. I do like Roll20 but it doesn't beat face to face.
Having a holiday and paternity leave has been good for bits and bobs projects. It's all about making life a little easier when moving around inside the wall. I've taken to keeping an in-game log of what needs to be moved where using a book and quill. For each location I write what it needs and before I travel there, I check the book. If I see something that needs fixing then I add it to the book. To be honest, writing it down in the first place has helped me remember.
At 0311 on the 21st of December 2016 Kate woke me up by going to the loo. Pregnant women visiting the toilet 4 times a night isn't remarkable, so I stirred but stayed curled up under in thick PJs and three times the covers that ordinary people do. The side effect of human baking is that you generate your own heat like a geothermal vent and the heating has been pretty much off for months. Pregnant women fitted with a heat exchange unit is a viable renewable energy source.
Kate sounded urgent when she returned.
"That's my waters breaking."
I've been surveying/roof fixing around the village and had stopped by Rob's tower and saw the snow scattered around looking scruffy. So I borrowed some cobble and tidied it up!
That's all to report. I've mostly been pottering around and making more enchanted weapons. I need to experiment with our map to see if I can figure out why it's going to the wrong world when you go through the End Portal. I think it might be something to do with world numbering and our old nether is numbered "wrong".
Spanning a week or two we begin with the end of last night and a couple of bad fellows who got on the wrong side of the Lack of Motorcycle Club. They just wanted an excuse for a cuddle.
The Habanero, a particularly shit car that holds a special place in EMW's and my heart for it saved us in an hour of need. Now it has become the icon of a club that needed no icon. The first rule of Habanero Club is that you blow it up.
GTA is getting an Update called Import/Export which is all about stealing and selling expensive cars. Yay!
CEO missions and some extra space for cars. Apparently coming in Dec.
The car at the end of the post - it's worth it for that alone.
My work colleague (we'll call in Charles) wants to get into FPV and we've been experimenting with a few cheap options. There's now a ridiculuously cheap way to get into it. It all comes from the Chinese copy-house Eachine and the components are crazy-similar.
Assuming a single battery for flight (to start with) and you have a soldering iron or access to one (or live near me).
Now we have a portal on the Lack Of world, it's time to kill the Ender Dragon. I'd love to have some company on this huge task. This is the final boss (bar the Wither) and for it we need some preparation. It's not the end of the world as I see it - we'll still be building on the main world.
In 1.10 those kindly folk at Mojang inserted a great many cool bits and bobs into the game. Most notably was cool stuff in The End. Not just blocks to build with but wings to fly on and other treats. While I've been pottering about and building here and there and working on THE SECRET PROJECT, I've not really had an adventure in a long time (Horse House might have been the last one). So, off to The End to kill the dragon it is!
I made a thing! I decided to give myself 80 minutes to edit a short clip I arrested from last week's game. For those who haven't ridden with us in a while, EMW is driving his 3-wheeler in his pants, Big R is the motorcyclist in the star spangled pyjamas and my character, Satre, is the trouble maker who gets bitten by Karma.
I enjoyed putting the video together, even if the distance-limit was really very annoying.
