wish to 64er Happy Birthday Blue Monkey
I'm already at 71
with best regards
I wasn't looking to shame you my friend. Simply to appear clever. You spotted the power of two after all ;-)
... Meaning that I'm not going to write down either one of our ages here, in binary, although hexadecimal might be another matter altogether ... ...On he other hand -
well, I am 1000011 and I feel that age ... and forget hexadecimal
Respect to you all
I just hit 111100 (A mere 3C.) yesterday so lagging behind a little.
I'm not expecting anyone to need anything more than a signed byte mind ;-)
Once again I am participating in the annual Running of the Gnomes - a charity run done virtually in World of Warcraft. Funds raised benefit Cleveland Clinic's cancer research. Started entirely by players, the run has become important enough that for the last few years Blizzard has added banners, water stands, and other ways to mark the course. If you would like to donate: https://give.ccf.org/fundraiser/2925192 . I'll post a picture or two after the run.
This is 5 hours before start. It's already crazy.

After a 15-month break for Classic WoW, I'm getting back into this. Working on my mod and yada yada. Still gonna be playing WoW and soon, Cyberpunk 2077, but am trying to pick up where I left off here as well.
Drop the Blizzard crap and gun full-on for Civ, is my personal advice.
What Takhisis said
@MeteorPunch My avatar says it all.
I took my own advice and spent 8 or so hours commemorating Halloween on EFZI. Unemployment is a b-word. (blast, not… seriously, I'm not that kind of foul-languaged person).
Spoiler On Warcraft :
I'm very much boycotting Blizzard as I've explained somewhere in Other Games/Offtopic. Have fun playing it if you like, but my objection here is that you're not playing enough Civ3.
Takhisis... Good to see You played EFZI2 Elite for Halloween. I also Game Tested Halloween but changed my Computer Date so I would not see All King Units as Zombies.
I will be Uploading a Major Update to EFZI2 Elite, Maybe before Thanksgiving this Month and for sure before Christmas.
Game Testing many times this year as I added more and corrected many areas. Game Play is Much more Challenging and Fun with the New Units...Many Improvements for the Game.
Have had to endure Many problems this year as most everyone has... Ambulance and Hospital twice and Hospital Procedures, etc... No Fun but at least No COVID-19.
Need Cataract Surgery and basically have a very difficult time seeing and that causes me Great Aggravation. I hope to have a better Year and have the needed corrections.
I hope people have not forgotten EFZI2 Elite as it will be Two Years since I have Updated the Game... I have been working on it all along with other Work.
Hope Everyone stays well and can have some Fun despite these Serious Times.
Actually, I think I might have started this round on Complete rather than Elite (same map, but with an AI less overpowered because only one human player will be fighting it instead of four). I think. Whichever one it is, it's great fun in any case!
Definitely. The start-of-game autosave is dated Dec. 31st but right after that I exited the game and changed the system date to November. And since I played well into the night later I changed it back.
Looking forward to the Elite update as well!

Regarding the purpose of this thread… this here country of Argentina has been in shutdown for nearly 230 days by now, and in the ensuing economic collapse I am of course jobless, just picking up the odd freelance thing. For more details go to Off Topic where we have a Coronavirus serial thread and also one for Latin America in which random Europeans and Americans express verbal support for the local dictators of their choice just to pat themselves on the back about how revolutionary they are even though they don't speak the language or know what the policies they support are.
I can at least see but not near as good as I did when I was younger (Much better than 20/10 with extreme micro vision ability). The Sacks(vitreous) in both my Eyes pulled away from the Retinas a few years ago (“vitreous detachment”) and that caused me to see many anomalies that I still have not gotten accustomed to seeing. During my Early Days in the Dental Profession, I could see a Dust Mite with my eye sight. Now I do have some frustrations but can see well enough to endure and continue.
...as I believe I have posted before, Eleanor Roosevelt coined the true statement "Getting Old is Not for Sissies"
It is all a matter of working with what one has but I will at least have Cataract Surgery when possible to help and I hope within a Year.
Aaaaahhh, this suddenly explains your propensity for ghastly sights, big creepy crawlies, and obviously evil scientists in your scenarios.
@MeteorPunch Another vote for more Civ3!
@Takhisis I think what you were trying to say was... unemployment is butts. Could I buy you a pizza or something?
@Vuldacon Glad to hear you're still doing well enough. That was some impressive vision.
A pizza? It'd probably get cold, assuming it wasn't confiscated in Customs, so better not.
More seriously, my personal situation is not that bad. I'm still living with my parents at age 30, the university refuses to issue me my degree even though I passed my very last final exam around July 2018 (they're stalling on everything using the coronavirus as an excuse) so some work I might get I'm not legally allowed to, and I have virtually no savings. But we own the flat and we're weathering it and the freelance stuff is actually a net contribution.
The problem remains, of course, that Argentina's new government has, in less than a year, managed to mismanage the country into societal collapse, but that's nothing that can be helped for now.
Takhisis... sounds as if you are living in the U.S. However, I do Understand and Wish You All the Best as you continue through these "Atypical" Days.
AS for my Profession, yes THAT probably has much to do with my Visual Introspection and Graphics... You should see the Zombie "Critters inside someone's Mouth! ... Of course a Vivid imagination and propensity for outlandish Art Work might have a little more to do with it.
Seriously Though... I am quite certain for the most part "things" are NOT Great anywhere in the World for people now.
I hope everyone will "hang in there" and maintain the best they can until these Bad Days are past us... and IF you can at least do your part to NOT Spread the COVID-19, that will help.
... So, in the mean time, play some games for a Fun and forget it all for a Brief Reprieve.
It will all be Better... I am just Very concerned about the situations for many Family, Friends and People in general NOW.
I will get off this Undesirable Topic and go with something that is at least Not a Reminder of what we All Already Know.
Hopefully by Spring this may be mostly over. At least that is what one would like to think...
