Topic: Rhyme time!
Subject: Rhyme time!


The purpose of this game, as you have probably figured, is to post a word that rhymes with the post above yours.

To keep things flowing, we'll do it in chains of five, like so:

Person #1 starts the chain
people #2-#4 post rhyming words
person #5 posts a rhyming word, then posts a new word that starts a new rhyme chain.

Got it?


Okay, and the word to start the game is...


shark.

Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: Narnia


Took the kids to see Prince Caspian, the new Chronicles of Narnia movie.

Wow.

To be fair, I never read the books, so nothing is "changed" for me. I'm judging the movie on it's own merits, period.

The CGI is a step up from the first movie (which was admittedly very good). This movie is quite a bit darker, with a grittier, more violent feel... this is not the wide-eyed wonderment version of Narnia we saw in the first movie. A *lot* of beings die in this film. This is a fantasy world, no doubt, but not a glittery fairy tale. However, there is no gore whatsoever; I noted that no one's sword ever got bloody, despite the fact that they were used a lot. A tiny nitpick, and one of very few I can come up with.

I won't reveal any spoilers, but let me say that a new character stole the movie, and had me in stitches. The Narnians were great, period... there is one scene where you know that quite a few are going to die, and a great deal of emotion is subtly conveyed... you feel very bad for them. Great job on the filmmaking.

The children are a bit older, and once they return to Narnia, are apparently quite a bit more practiced in the arts of warfare. In the first film, they went from being neophytes to being competant. In this installment, they perform like heroes from Lord of the Rings. Perhaps a bit of a stretch, but it works.

Go see this movie on the big screen, you won't be disappointed.

Topic: A Cold Day in Hell Q&A
Subject: you got questions? We've got answers.


1. Blake has access to the heating and wiring schematics.

2. There is large generator outisde the facility (marked as area 25 on the map). It has its own control room on the map (see room 23). One could reach it by walking outside, but this is not necessary - the two buildings are connceted via a tunnel.

That sublevel contains a circuit breaker room (27 on the map), located directly beneath the power control room.

The facility is heated with a combined oil/forced air system, which has its own controls, located in room 24 - adjacent to the power control room in the outbuilding. Note that the ducts in use are relatively small, so there is no possibility of people crawling around in them.

Finally, to round out the utilities (even though you did not ask), there is a water treatment room in the sublevel (26 on the map), located adjacent to the circuit breaker room.

3. Conceivably, one would shut down the power from the power control room, yes. Unfortunately, this is not the movie Jurassic Park, in which invincible computer data protection schemes are bypassed by simply turning off the computer. I'm operating under the assumption that one of Blake's first actions was to do a cold boot.

4. The disks play back fine, but appear to be recordings of dull, mundane events. They are dated, and the catalog is more or less constant, though there are a few small gaps.

Noticeably, there are no disks for a period of time of about a week, during late 2023.

Also, the machine itself was empty when you arrived. There are no disks labelled for any time earlier than six days ago.

Of course, you haven't more than afew minutes reviewing the disks so far.. there's no telling what you might find. If anything.

Note that the recordings seem to be of laboratory activity only.

You guys handle that however you wish.

I posted a teeny update to the game thread. Before I can go much further, I need to know if you guys are going to continue exploring (and how you will proceed), whether you plan to do anything else to/try to learn more from the machine, if you wish to wait for Charlie to get in to the computers, etc, etc.

Topic: RDI T-shirts
Subject: new designs...


As stated in the announcement thread, both of the new designs (Avatar of Awsome, Logo Golf Shirt) are due to member requests.

The Avatar of Awesome tee is on the heavier material, so it costs a little more. Of course, gofl shirts naturally also cost more than regular tees.

If you see something you like, but wish it was in a different color, or was available on a different product, don't hesitate to ask. Likewise, if you'd like something that you don't see, let me know - if I CAN get it for you, I'll be happy to do so.

Heh, the idea of people walking around in RDI merchandise is just too cool.

both of these items were done by request of a member. If you want a shirt, but don't see what you have in mind, let me know!





Avatar of Awesome [back text: only at... rdinn.com]

Price: $20.00

You're awesome, and you know it. Tell everyone else!

Note that this shirt is a heavier, higher quality tee than most of our offerings - and as such, costs a bit more.




RDI Logo Golf Shirt

Price: $27.00

Features the RDI logo on the front left, with the "Adventure awaits..." tagline beneath. Right sleeve has "rdinn.com" in red text.

Can't wear t-shirts to work? Wear this polo-style collared tee instead.

The fire team investigates the room, following Kernan's orders. It would appear that the device is wired into the station's power via a large cable that leads directly into the floor beneath the device.

Naturally, said cable is within the blue glow that envelops the rest of the machine.

Subject: retcon!


DM's note: I will be assuming the role of Tal'Anor. However, I lost track of everyone's positions, and mistakenly assumed that the etire party had gone to meet the slaa'kar; therefore I am instituting retroactive continuity, aka, a reality shift.

The conversation in which the paladin cautioned Varuna to not dismiss the aid of the slaa'kar out of hand never happened.

My mistake!

Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: chick flick!


Last night, I sat down and watched Catch and Release with my wife, who had DVRed it. I knew coming in that it was a chick flick (aka romantic comedy?), so I was prepared. To be honest, I actually enjoyed the movie.

The basic premise is that the main's character's fiance dies before the two of them are to be married (I mean, RIGHT before - the movie starts with some nice imagery of the bride-to-be dressed in black at a funeral reception while workers carry out wedding flowers, decorations, etc), and she has to pick up the pieces of her life. Naturally, it would not be a romantic movie if she didn't have a new love interest, but they handle it pretty well. Turns out that the late Mister Right wasn't quite the perfect guy she (and pretty much everyone) thought that he was, which leaves her with some interesting things to deal with.

Good acting, very nice character interplay. A couple of the characters are a good bit over the top in their quirkiness, but it's okay; it helps the movie to really work. I had only two real beefs with the movie.

(1) Apparently, virtually every person in this movie is rich, or well enough off that money (which was a central theme in the movie) really doesn't matter after all... how nice for them. Made it a bit tough for me to identify with them, and took away some of the pressure I would think real people might feel. Of course, I know that there are lots of rich people out there... maybe this was aimed at them?

(2) An otherwise smart, well put together script could not resist from falling into the formulatic romantic comedy trap of inventing a conflict between the main character and the love interest, and as is pretty much always the case, said conflict comes from one person saying something they really didn't mean, and the other person finds out about it and takes it out of context, causing a big rift. Will they patch it up? Of course they will, this is a romantic comedy.

In a movie that dealt with an intense situation - and thus, some deep issues - in what felt like a genuine, fulfilling way, this conflict seemed very high school and shallow in comparison.


Geez, what do I think I am, a movie critic?

This is not my favorite end of the movie spectrum, there's a reason they are called "chick flicks," but all in all, this was a good (if somewhat odd) movie. You could do much worse for a date film.

Topic: bragging on my child...
Subject: new bragging


We've been doing the baseball thing again, and my son has played very well, so I thought I'd update a year-old thread to brag some more.

In the first post in this thread, I metnioned how Caleb had a chance to be a dominant player in this league during his ten year old season, and that has proven to be true. If he isn't the best player in the entire league, he's certainly in the top three.

He has hit very consistently, and hit for power. For the first time in his life, he's been called upon to play shortstop in a fair number of innings (for those who do not know baseball, the shortstop is uaually the best defensive player on the team). He has been an elite pitcher - had a four inning, one hit game this past weekend.

Last night was his best offensive night ever. 4 for 4, with a single, two doubles, and a grand slam. The slam was especially huge since our team was down 10-5 at the time with two out. Those four runs put us right back in the game, and we went on to win.

Anyway, there's my bragging.

Topic: RDINN Feature Updates/ Suggestions/ Bugs
Subject: PM folders


Alright, ya bunch of whiners, I have implemented private message folders. You'll notice the "add a folder" link under your "You are here -->> blah blah blah.... click here to view sent messages," etc.

Now, the PM folder has a dropdown box. Change it from Inbox to one of your newly added folders, and voila! You are there.

To move messages among folders, scroll down to the bottom of the page. The old mass delete option has been updated to a "move to folder" option. To delete, simply leave it on trash. To move to a new folder, pick the appropriate one from the dropdown.

Wanna kill a folder? Navigate to it and use the "delete folder" link that appears where "add a folder" goes in the regular inbox. If you goof up and delete a folder without moving the messages first, have no fear - they are simply returned to your main inbox.

You cannot delete your main inbox, no matter what you do, so don't even try, Grugg.

There ya go, folks. Organize your PMs to your little heart's content.

Subject: answers!


1. I keep notepad docs with current hitpoints, quick reference on xp, and any assorted notes that I need. Once or twice, I've resorted to excel spreadsheets, but that is rare. I do keep full copies of character sheets in doc files.

2. I usually ask for 1-2 posts per week at a minimum in my games (though we never seem to keep to it). I do not set max post counts.

3. See #1.

4. Sure. Mostly for fun, but I do applaud good posts and smite moronic and/or intentionally cringeworthy ones.
