  1. Gnaaah.... I spilled half a pot of shade wash all over my table while painting my miniature. Luckily I had an underlay and kitchen paper in case that happens... and it happened.

  5. Pro tip: don't watch anything that make you laugh hysterically when painting miniatures. Just don't.

  6. @thelastgherkin A trash bag to be precise. The kind that is made of too thin and cheap plastic and is very prone to fall apart when being mid-way to the dumpster.

  8. Got to see the latest Doctor Who episode.... well.... It reminded me a lot of why I stopped watching that show. It had some good moments but they seemed wasted by the odd "twist".

  9. I'm thinking about switching to magnetic USB leads because I'm fed up with sticking the cable into the small micro-USB plug. However looking-up a good set of leads is confusing and frustrating. I want a cable that works with micro-USB and USB-C but there are barely any. And in general the reviews are often abysmal for most of them.

  10. Watching the documentary "The Toys That Made Us" on Netflix. The wacky beginnings of some toy lines is highly entertaining. So far there are episodes about Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man, and G.I. Joe.

  11. It's super weird to hear that the time between 2000 and 2009 is called "naughties".

  16. Merry Happy! I just got my Christmas gifts. Bunch of books (Legend of Korra Season 2 art book, Dirk Gently's Holistic Agency comic) and a small whiteboard with pens and a bit of money.

  20. Voice synthesizers have developed to the point I cannot tell the difference between a real recording and the synthesized result https://google.github.io/tacotron/publications/tacotron2/index.html

  21. I'm tempted to buy Cuphead in order to play it over the holidays. On the other hand I got miniatures that I wanted to paint over the holidays.

  22. Today I programmed a node graph whose node edges (transitions) are defined by lambda functions.

  23. @scribus It's mostly harmless. It has major flaws and lots of minor ones. It was a tad better than The Force Awakens. I can say that I was entertained. It is a popcorn flick and major expectations are misplaced here. A few of my friends were devastated and said it was worse than the prequels. I can't share that notion but I can understand that in a way. I thought TFA was disappointing and my friends thought it was fantastic. Tastes are weird. Watch it when the movie theater shows for a cheaper price or when it comes on BluRay or DVD and watch it with friends (or different sources, nudge nudge).

  25. Got back from The Last Jedi, after the parking deck parking price stole my money. 2.50€ for 2.5h hours is obnoxiously high (extra to the cinema ticket price). I ran to my car as fast as I could because I didn't want to pay extra 0.50€.

  27. Among the leaks there were also animatics to some EQG shorts and the body proportions are far better than the final body models.

  29. I'm going to buy my mother a 10'' Android tablet. She often complains that she wants to look something up but doesn't want to turn on her bulky laptop just for one google search. I lend her my small 7'' tablet a few times and she enjoyed that she can take it everywhere she wants.

  30. I'm back from the company Christmas party. It was extremely loud and the buffet was an organizational disaster (waiting 15 minutes in line). I had good conversations but the music made it barely possible to understand each other.
