I have officially got fed up with manufacturers of storage containers creating new lines every few years and then making the new line incompatible with the old ones they immediately discontinued. They're all doing it, be it Oxo, Curver or IKEA. Preaching being there for the environment and then making giant stacks of containers unfixable and unusable with the new stuff.

What I am trying to say is, I've decided to now just buy Euronorm containers for everything!

Food? Eurocontainer!
Clothing? Eurocontainer!
In progress scale model that needs a place to stay? Eurocontainer!

and probably: going to a con with lots of stuff? Eurocontainer!

@neweinstein it eventually clicked for me a few days ago. Ordered today and we’ll see when they show up. Chance to go through the stuff and only keep what we actually use too.

International Card Services, by far the largest Credit Card issuer in the country, is stopping with giving credit; meaning you can only get a card that you pay back via your bank immediately.

This might be good for people that can't manage finances well, but it does make me question what the heck the added benefit of an ICS Visa or Mastercard actually is now.

They charge a yearly fee, for... not exactly sure what their sales pitch is for what is offers more than a bank's card.

Oh yeah, after a set of delays, I finally got the next part of my model kit. We're finally starting to put the hull platings on the saucer section. Though I do have a couple that I have to fix cause they're uneven. Hopefully that won't be too difficult. I might disassemble and reassemble it.

So far, this has been really difficult, but also at the same time, very fulfilling. It's honestly been nice to have these distractions from my every day life and just, build this model starship.

So I will definitely continue doing it.

The neck and top piece of the Engineering section of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D from Star Trek The Next Generation.
Interior shot of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D's Engineering section. There is a battery box, a circuit board, as well as a bunch of wiring supported by an endoskeleton. I am well aware that the wiring can use some cable management lol....

@itsOasus hnnnng; I still need to start building. I was going to start exactly when the shit hit the bankruptcy fan and just lost all motivation.

Got an email last week that there are delays… sigh

Got a case of con-crud. Not COVID, at least the test are all negative, but I'm still feeling pretty sick.

That's a first, btw, so far I never fell ill after cons. Ah well, there's always a first time.

@sequentialsnep I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of 35+ (my standard filter) during this year. Didn’t get to meet any, but it us comforting to know that the greymuzzles are coming!

@sequentialsnep I… eeuh, would have to word that event description VERY carefully. I can smell that drama from the other side of the planet indeed. 😂

@cato @sequentialsnep I would never exclude somebody based on age, but would want them to know the expected crowd age is above average. But getting that worded right, is challenging. Always somebody willing to misinterpret the actual meaning.

@sequentialsnep my brain is still in con mode mostly. I am at the office, with a lanyard round my neck, in a con hoodie and i have already tried logging in with my lassie id twice today. 😅

@Dairishgoat @sequentialsnep @cato I know exactly what you are saying. Maybe that is why I found comfort in the amount of 30~40+ people at NFC this year. We’re obviously severely in the minority, but we are not alone either.

@sequentialsnep @Dairishgoat @cato luckily I don’t have not desire kids. I can talk about my bad back or how I upgraded yet another toom to fully automated LED lights though. 😆

@sequentialsnep I woke up at 6:30, breakfast at 7:00 and apart from a short nap will be at the main venue all day. Come say hi :)

evi,
@evi@meow.social avatar

@sequentialsnep not really; I walk around a lot (lots of roaming shifts). Tomorrow will be pretty quite though.

@sequentialsnep today was hectic, so sorry for the stupidly slow reply.

@sequentialsnep I seem to have the same notification issue. If you have telegram, by all means poke there as it seems more reliable in the push (but not perfect).
