  1. Checking out KSPv1.10. Some of these ESA missions look like fun. The parts are super high-tech though. It'll take a while to unlock them in a career game.
  2. Welcome! Sorry, I'm very left-brained, with relatively little artistic or musical ability to speak of. I do appreciate people who have more right-brain skills but I'll have to leave the artistic stuff to the others here. But if you ever want to talk technology or science (-fiction or real) then I'm your guy!
  3. I just realized that I've been neglecting my Kerbals. Currently my main "career" game is v1.7 but I just noticed the company has released v1.10 already. I'd downloaded and installed 1.9 with the intent of moving my saves over but I never got around to playing it, and now I've been lapped yet again. Gotta get back to it but with work being the way it has been for the past few months the last thing I've wanted to deal with at home is more rockets! I think I'll go ahead and install the new version however, then hook up CKAN (a mod-manager) to it to see if my favorite mods have been updated as well. If so maybe I'll play a bit of sandbox this weekend, just to see what's changed.
  4. Then again, Ainz himself (itself?) is kind of a pawn too. They never did adequately explain just how the whole thing started after all, or for what purpose. Between the green glow and him having to have Demi explain to him what's going on half the time I wouldn't really say he's the one in control of things.
  5. Just found out that Tonikaku Kawaii is going to be made into an anime by Kenjirō Hata, the same person who did Hayate no Gotoku.  AND it will be on crunchy in October.  Might be a bit diabetes-inducing, but I'm going to put it on my list anyway.  :)

  6. Dances with Dragons. Lots of action. Not a lot of plot. Or maybe too much. So far it seems to be just random people trying to kill each other because someone killed someone they knew. Someone's got some 'splainin' to do. And the dialogue? Gaius: "You furniture freak! Go get swallowed by a man-eating chair!" Gigina: "I might want a chair like that." Yeah, like that. Maybe he has a furniture fetish? Just one of many unexplained things so far.
  7. TFW you rotate the mandelbrot plot through the third dimension. Kind of like a Flatlander being visited by Mr Sphere.
  8. Looks like things were hopping today down in Boca Chica...

      Something about the way it's wibble-wobbling is a little nerve-wracking. It almost looks as if it could just face plant like a drinking bird.

      The fact that the whole thing looked off-kilter because of the engine mount didn’t help the visuals.  There are mounts for three engines around a common center, but with only one engine mounted the whole thing has to tip over to get the center of thrust going through the center of mass or else the whole thing does a nice arc ending in a powered dive into the ground.  The physics works, and obviously the software can handle it, but it looked... dangerous.  :)

      The thing that impressed me was the fact that this is just about a third of the top half of the full stack that’s going to eventually put things in space.  That’s going to be one impressive launch!  A lot of them actually.  I mean, the whole thing is supposed to be reusable after all.

      I can't wait to see it!

  9. I just watched this myself. What did you think about it? I really enjoyed it. It wasn't bad but it seemed like it could have been much, much shorter. Like 25 minutes shorter at least. That much of it was scenes cut-and-pasted from the series. I don't want to say the word "filler", but I will think it. Even then it was still an hour long beyond that. That said, if taken as an "extra" episode of the original series it was fine. It continued the original pace and style and did have quite a bit of new material, including a few good lines: Slayer: "I'm going to kill the goblins." "How many?" Slayer: "Yes." ( I don't think that's a spoiler. ) I did think that for an adventurer the princess was a bit of a crybaby though. I mean, even Goblin Slayer noticed.

      @Zila This one?

      I love this shirt!

  12. Crunchy has it as "Inu x Boku Secret Service". There's also the MAL page for more info. Would something like Hiiro no Kakera be like what the OP is looking for?
