I'm planning on solliciting at my high school which was pure hell for me as a teen. So weird. So so weird.

I miss this place. But I've been away from it so long, I feel like a stranger.

I am gonna go through the mixed, pleasures and horrors threads, to see how you've all been. Good, I hope.

So my kids are learning about the basics of debate. They got assigned topics and had to present opposing viewpoints. My one son got video games are good for kids/video games are bad for kids. And he had to provide sources.

When looking up the "bad" he was having a hard time and asked if Fox was reputable or not because (and I quote) "Isn't that the station that grandpa watches all the time and they're wrong a lot?"

First day in the hospital after a long break (three weeks off in December, ten weeks working in a community clinic, then two weeks off). It's good, I like it, but the first day of patient care is always stressful.

Yeah, it's kinda a bummer because as time goes on he seems less overtly hostile and more downright pitiable

Redid an old hand-poked tattoo.

Hurt like a son of a bitch (tattooing over old tattoos + scar tissue) but turned out pretty well. Looks like the ink is solidly in there and the filling and linework is decent.

Also no signs of infection or scabbing so that's good.

+The Indian Premier League has started again! It's like cricket, but fun & exciting!

-It's normally on at a time when I'm unavoidably engaged away from my TV

+So I got another, small TV for the other room, for an entirely reasonable price!

-Blasted thing didn't come with any cable to attach it to anything.

+I got a cable and plugged it all together and made it work, so I got to watch the IPL!

-Which I think has lost something from not being staged in India. Somehow the atmosphere is different without home crowds, and just those who can afford to travel plus fans from Abu Dhabi/wherever else they're playing. It's not so... boisterously and wholeheartedly Indian.

+In unrelated news, I learned earlier that some glorious mentalist has apparently ported the Lord-of-the-Rings inspired "The Last Days" mod from Mount & Blade to Mount & Blade: Warband, with hopefully a pile of associated stability improvements from not being built on the original, somewhat inadequate engine. So I can spend the post-cricket part of the day getting that up and running, and then riding round Rohan smacking orcs in the face with sharp pointy bits of metal. RIDE NOW SONS OF EORN! ;-D

I had been looking forward to the IPL as it's shown on domestic terrestrial tv here, but my tv is on the fritz, and I can't get ITV4 apparently. A shame. It's not cricket per se, but it is fun. Hope you get to see some. C'mon you Chennai Super Biffs!

My mixed bag:

At the end of this month I get my first full pay cheque from my new job & my last full pay cheque from my last job. Two full pay cheques! I contemplated a weekend away, or an Xbox One, or buy my entire Amazon wishlist in one swoop.

I got a court order to repay £400 of debt I forgot I'd run up on an old bank account.

D'oh!

Tchah, it's a shame you can't get ITV4, especially if you're a CSK fan. They're trampling all over Delhi Daredevils right now...

The divorce process is creeping forward. Mostly this means that I just sit and wait for other people to tell me what's next. So much waiting. Still, nobody's screaming or threatening each other so this is pretty much straddling the line.

Had a great interview a couple weeks ago and was told to expect a decision by the end of that week. No decision made yet, which means that it's still possible that I got the job. So much waiting.

Oh, and the bridge on my performance guitar is separating and warping the wood beneath it, requiring more in repairs than the guitar cost new. This led to me purchasing a new guitar which I am quite happy with.

Like a lot of people, I don't like Firefox's new UI in the ver. 29 release. Like a lot of people, I was able to put things back the way I wanted with the Classic Theme Restorer extension. It can't replace absolutely everything that everybody used which was removed, but it does replace everything I was using. Namely, combined stop/reload buttons, star in the search bar, small toolbar icons, restore the Menu button, etc.

How I had FF28 set up:



How FF29 looked:



How I tweaked it:



So now I can have new Firefox version while keeping things the way I want. Worked on my Linux install too.
Still pissed at Mozilla for removing so many features and customization options (especially the small buttons, WTF?), but at least I can put things right. Unlike with certain other browsers.
(No, I didn't feel like migrating to a non-Mozilla fork like Sea Monkey or Pale Moon over this)
