  1. With acceptable temperatures outside I started playing VR again. A modded BeatSaber is somewhat of a must as the default songs are utterly crap for the most part. After a 3 hour session my legs hurt for days. Also I was playing Budget Cuts 2. I really liked Budget Cuts 1 althought it was relatively short. Budget Cuts 2 had some very badly designed parts as they have stopped me to a screeching halt. The first major design flaw was at the beginning where a secret code was written on a post-it note on the back of a walking robot. First of all the note was tiny and not easily visible as the robot blocks the way and the post-it had a similar brightness as the robot. Later there were some other parts equally dumb as they were as easily missed. I had to watch a walkthrough for these.

  2. @vcgriffin Just normal odors from the basmati rice. Its nutty and musk-like odor is fine on the plate but the concentrated smell in the air from cooking is not that pleasant. Usually I open my window while cooking, however when there is a 5°C difference I rather keep my apartment cool and endure the smell for a while.

  3. Cooking rice while it's hot outside and opening the windows is out of the question is a bad idea. My apartment smelled like old socks the whole day from the rice.

  7. @scribus Not sure if I get the first version of them but it's a relief that keyboards on smartphones aren't dead yet.

  9. @scribus People in general are the problem.

  10. @scribus Usually. I took the apartment so I don't have that issue. But because it's me and the universe is hating me I am in this situation.

  11. @scribus I would kill for silence as my neighbours below me are killing me with noise and trampling that causes my floor to shake.

  19. @mrmattimation I hang my mask on my door handle when I'm home. Also I have a lanyard that attaches my keys my jeans when I'm going out of the house. The few things I do for not to cherry up at life.

  20. Episode 2 of Star Trek Lower Decks was less awful. Dare I say that it might be good? It is such an abandonment of the classic TNG/DS9/VOY Trek in tone that's still a struggle to make me like the show. But it has potential if it were less krass.

  21. I installed fly nets in my windows. I got fed up with all the little buggers that always bug me in the night. Moths, flies, mosquitoes, various assortment of other bugs.

  22. Gonna endure the heat this week. It'll be colder next week. If I could a mobile AC this week (all websites for all local stores I know have only the expensive ones) it'd be not much of use and potentially crappy for an impulse buy, and it holds doubly true for a used AC (except for a very very low price). I put some research work and buy a better device off season, new or used.

  25. @scribus There is a 3D printer that's sold with the "Replicator" name but it ain't the real deal.

  26. Wanted to buy a cheap AC from my local listings but... they were gone. All sellers said that another *just* before me already got the deal.

  28. The rain over night made this morning to afternoon somewhat bearable. The temperature is now up and the humidity is slowly getting to me. Still better than yesterday.

  29. @oracle I need to save some money for a portable AC. The window mounted kind is out of the option because we have here no sliding windows. Last year it was bearable but the streak of hot days recently is killing me right now.

  30. All that effort is for nought. As I have woken up the temperature is as it was before.
