Good luck with that Swicked. Hope it works out for you in the end.

Eh, the basics of all this is that I don't have enough time to support all this work, particularly not to just follow around I&C techs on jobs just so that they have an engineer there, even when the work thoroughly routine and they have no actual need of my support. I simply don't.
My supervisor says I have the time to do all of this and more and not to complain anymore.
So hopefully I can find someone who will hire me.

Hinds, aren't you an engineer, too?
I don't know if you're employed yet, but good luck when you are.

Well, I fuckin' did it. Computer 2 (: "Electric Boogaloo") is up and running. Considering changing the stock fan for the CPU because this whole thing has made me crazy paranoid. We'll see. I'm not planning on overclocking or anything but an abundance of caution wouldn't kill me.

Right now the main problem is that I keep typing on the keyboard to type something on my laptop and instead a bunch of junk happens on the new computer, on account of it's plugged into the new computer but I forget that constantly. Also, the big monitor will need an adapter or something to connect to the desktop machine. So I'm using the little monitor for now. It's still good.

Just started Skyrim up. "Settings have been set to 'Ultra High' quality." Eheheheheheheheh. I don't know why it feels like I'm getting away with murder, but it does.

@swicked
That's friggin' ridiculous, dude. Your workload doubled with no commensurate increase in... anything. Except disrespect from your co-workers. And IIRC didn't your job get a lot more complicated since the days that one (nutty and hypercompetent) guy pulled off all the engineering ever at the plant? Total bull. Even if it was just temporary, it'd be bull. This is the kind of move people pull when the whole place is going down the drain anyway and they just need to keep the lights on until the plot of land is sold, or whatever.

@Books
I finished the Imperial Radch trilogy recently. It's pretty dang good, I have to say. It has the unfortunate reputation of being an SJW darling sort of book, but I don't think that's really fair as a true SJW doesn't have favorites, only bones to pick. :P It has a kind of unsatisfying non-ending (assuming it's actually a trilogy, and not a trilogy the way A Song of Ice and Fire is a trilogy), but on the ride it does some very neat-o stuff with identity, has pretty decent characters, and has oodles of my favorite thing in genre fiction: people sitting around talking. It also has a Dyson Sphere. How can you say no to that?

Also read The Wind Through the Keyhole. Fuck. I did not realize how much I still liked The Dark Tower. I might have to re-read all of them, which would be friggin' nuts because I have them all in paper and they're goddamn enormous. Anyway, it's a strong Stephen King book, and singlehandedly makes up for Wizard and Glass being atrocious by basically being a much better version of that book. IMO it wouldn't work too well if you hadn't read the previous books in the series first (it's a midquel - the series was finished years ago, but King added this in as Dark Tower 4.5, bridging some of the stylistic gaps between the early novels and the later ones while also delivering a great story).

Lastly, I've started the Gentleman Bastard series. I like it, so far. Only a hundred or so pages in. I enjoy how it hops around in time to create cliffhangers, I like the bantersome dialogue (even if it is sometimes a bit much), and I like fantasy books where people say "fuck." Sue me. The characters remind me of Jack Vance, the setting is excellent, and it's dark but far from humorless.

I've a master's degree in Aerospace Systems Engineering and am currently working towards getting into a PhD program for astrophysics or mechanical engineering; thanks, though.

There've been several books I've tried to get into recently, and can't seem to. Most of them just seem to suck

I most recently caught up with all the Dresden Files books that are currently out, which were decent, the first of the Sandman Slim series, which was not as good, and the first couple books of the Codex Alera series, which is pretty darn fun.
What books have you been trying?

Tried the Monster Hunter International books, which were a massive waste of potential just in the first few chapters.

There were a few others that left so little of an impression that I don't even remember. Currently reading the first book in the Valhalla trilogy, which is "eh" at best so far

While XCom 2 is a week away, I'm playing... not Long War.

I've came across X-Com Final, which is kinda like Long War for the 1994 UFO Defense (and I have no idea how I haven't found it before, considering I knew that the open-source X-Com 1994 is a thing).

It's awesome.

There's multiple new UFO types (like a 2-man fighter that can kill your early planes) and interceptors.
You can't just go inventing lasers right away, just like in Long War; for a long time, you'll have to make do with ballistic guns (which are a lot more of, including machine guns, grenade launchers, sniper rifles, and some things that you have to invent like a multi-RPG launcher); you'll be able to make Alloy bullets for the guns, though. There's also a lot more armor types.
Your first lasers will be trophies, and you even have to do an interrogation to use them; thankfully, there's new options for live alien capture like taser pistols and dart rifles (you have to research the darts). Actually, interrogations are required a lot more, in general.
Of course, there's new aliens. I've met some from Apocalypse and TFTD. Fuck those guys. (well, actually, the main source of annoyance are their terror units... speaking of, there'll be a prolonged period where you might face Cyberdisks without lasers. Lol.)

Oooooooh, shit! Magic Circle's got a new album out and I didn't know about it! Listened to the first minute and then bought it. Five minutes in, I sure am not regretting it. Sounds great. Not a retread of their first album at all, but still the same style and still fuckin' great.

Listening now. First thoughts are that "Fated to journey blind" would be awesome as part of a tattoo

EDIT: That entire album is fucktastic

@Frost
I want to go see them live, but I'm working on the one date that's actually close to me.

@Ava's Demon
Dang, things've been heating up since the last page I saw. Feels like the artwork's become even better, too.

A lot of games have day 1 DLC these days.

X-Com 2 has Day 1 Mods, made by the Long War team.

I haven't actually finished X-Com UFO Defense previously. I had to get rid of the shame before touching X-Com 2, so... now I have.

The Final mod adds a lot more than what I've described in the post, btw. You should try it, if you're not repulsed by the 1994 graphics. And if you are, you should try it anyway.

Has anyone here done any work modding Victoria II?  I've run into a mysterious problem with some decisions; the symptoms suggest bad bracket structuring, but I've checked the bracket structuring multiple times manually and with two different programs.  Other decisions I've written work fine, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong here.
The decisions, if you want to see them:

Code:
   claim_nunavut = {
      potential = {
         tag = MTC
         NOT = {
            has_country_flag = nunaclaim

         }
      }

Started playing Elite: Dangerous: Horizons: More Colons Edition

Quite a slow start. I've been warned. But at least the universe is huge and full of possibilities, and pretty dynamic so I have that to look forward to.

I just wish there was a way to spend actual real money just to get an option for your new characters to start with more credits than the basic 1000 because right now I can't even really start trading with only so little.

Also my first investment will be to buy the module that allow to automate the docking/landing procedure. Because goddamn is it a pain in the ass to do manually.

I've released a new version of my mod. There should be no more spontaneous combustion in the caravans.

I've tried playing Max Payne 3 again. "I have a computer that can actually run it decently now," I thought. "Maybe the gameplay will be better with 60 FPS."

It's not. I mean, okay, it's a little better, but holy shit it is still not good. I never thought a game could be overproduced - I thought that was something only music could manage to fuck up on, specifically melodic death metal - but this game has so many "cinematic" mechanics that just fuck you (and the basic gameplay loop) up, over and over, for no reason; so many "cool" moments that force you to go through stupid fucking cutscenes when you just want to play the fucking game; so much post-rendered trash all over the screen... so much pointless noise and chaos and destructible bullshit that gets in the way of playing, so many extra ideas thrown into the formula ("Uhh, McPain is a cover-based War of Gears, right? No? Well, it is now!") that just don't work... God, it's like you can see a good game inside the game, so you keep playing for those rare moments that are actually fun, but the game keeps unequipping your guns for you, and squeezing off "fun" instant-kill monster closets, and letting you watch really cool cutscenes where groups of enemies shuffle in single-file through an alley you were aiming at, notice you, point at you, clean their weapons thoroughly, signal for reinforcements, prepare a hearty dinner, say grace, eat, have a quick nap, and duck behind strong cover - at which point you are magically placed behind a paper wall and finally allowed to start shooting at them with a different gun than the one(s) you had equipped prior to watching Quentin Tarantino's six-hour masterpiece "Enter the Cannon Fodder, Part 178."

And the story sucks, too. It's slow as molasses purely because the main character randomly is forced into cutscene mode, during which time he is incapable of murdering people (despite having been mowing down something like seven humans per minute for the past hour) and gives up, only to un-give-up the second there's no longer a chance of advancing the fucking story. It's like the opposite of Metal Gear in all respects. By the time twists started happening, I didn't care about the plot. It's not just the whole Ludonarrative dissonance thing (buzzword, ho!), it's that the story is so pointless and slow and bland. The best parts were the flashbacks where you didn't have to be in Brazil. Those had style, and one or two fun characters. They don't last.

Anyway, there's a BBC article up now called "Why Are Americans So Angry?" I've found the answer: Max Payne 3. :I

Um.
I'm considering the purchase of an audiobook. I've never felt the need to have one, but this one has Wayne June (the Darkest Dungeon Ancestor) reading H. P. Lovecraft.

It says it has Dunwich Horror read by him. That'd be worth a lot - I dunno about $18, but it'd be perfect for his voice.

I've never been a fan of audiobooks--and Lovecraft doubly so, since his more complex prose tends to demand my relatively undivided attention
