  1. 3ter's Gaming Goals June 2018

    *cough* archive me please, it's July
  2. SO THEN! I was out for two weeks on vacation. Starting point: Des Moines, Iowa. The first week was to be spent with my dad's side of the family in Biddeford, Maine. Me, my girlfriend, and my brother had our tickets already. We had all packed. The first order of business was to get our cats some sitters. My cat is 18 and no longer cares for feline company. My brother's cat, Oreanna, is 3 and is always being fierce because why not? Our mom agreed to sit for our cats at my brother's place, since there are two floors. I also used to live there and the room we stayed in is vacant and has been since we moved out, so the smells were familiar to Circe (my cat). Since the airport was in Des Moines, that meant that Emma (my girlfriend) and I had to get the cat arranged in a carrier, pack her stuff, and drive her up to my brother's place, which we decided to do the night before since we needed to be at the airport around 4 AM. This was the easy part in case you hadn't already guessed. So we dropped off the cat, got my mom all the information she needed for how to take care of them (Circe hates loud noises, and since the first week was July 1-7, that meant fireworks- our mom had to stay with her all evening to keep her calm ;-; ). Around the time we were twenty minutes from Emma and my apartment, it started to rain. Now, I'm not talking about sprinkling. I'm not talking about drizzling, I'm talking about POURING. As in windshield wipers on max, I still can't see the highway. Drop down to 50 MPH, STILL can't see the road. This last about 15 minutes, during which many other vehicles pass me because who needs to survive the drive when it's more important to get there in record time amirite? Never saw anyone spin off the road or explode, surprisingly. We had gotten tickets for Deadpool 2, so we head straight to the theater. As it turns out, Emma misremembered the time. This is the one scenario in which I am thankful for 20 minutes of advertisements and trailers- we only missed 10 minutes of the movie proper. In case you haven't seen it, I put our starting point in a spoiler below). About halfway through the movie, the downpour starts to get louder and most of the people in the audience got amber alerts for a flood warning (*gasp* shocker!). A few of them leave, but of course, nerds will endure the stupidest of conditions for something they love, so most people stick around. By the time the movie is over, they have had to turn up the volume because people can't hear it over the rain. The three of us were the only ones who stuck around through the credits and got the last short at the end of it. Pansies. So as we exit the theater and look outside, we notice that outside the doors there is quite literally 3 inches of water. There is enough of a dip that no water can get through the doors, but getting anywhere outside involves running with feet that go *squish squish squish*. Emma keeps an umbrella in her purse, so she volunteered to run out, get the car, and pull it up to the curb. As a result, she was soaked from the ankles down and David (my brother) and I were merely soak halfway. At this point, Emma gives the drivers seat back to me, and we head to Des Moines proper, grabbing some Arby's on the way because we are hungry. At the first intersection where I initially get off the interstate, there are two abandoned cars stuck in the water, about 200 feet from each other. People were having to navigate around it a bit, but traffic was intact other than that. Then we came to the next intersection... it's a one way (---> going this way as seen below ---->) crossing with a two way, and it splits very oddly. _____| | |___________ _____ | __ X_____ / / | / / / / | / X/ So we were coming up and merging into the one way street... except that we weren't because I'm not an idiot, unlike the two people who had tried and failed to drive through 2 feet of water (noted as the X's in the diagram above). I imagine you are starting to see where this is going. You are probably MOSTLY right. But it gets better. So with a little luck I manage to circumnavigate these particular wrecks, and I come to the intersection of Hickman and 19th, which is at the top of a hill. I would normally turn left there and go about a block to our (atrocious and soon to be moved out of b/c it sucks) apartment. But here's the thing about our apartment: its entrance is in the bottom of a valley. When I reach this intersection, as you may have guessed, I can't turn left because there are police cars blocking people from joining those who have already earned Darwin awards for the day. So instead, I choose to go straight. As you can imagine, the atmosphere of the car is getting closer to doom and gloom at this point. I am thoroughly medicated with anti-depressants and I'm not tired yet, so I'm holding up, laughing at the absurdity of the situation instead of letting it get to me, the others are groaning. No, I am not talking myself up, this is a very unusual circumstance; I'm usually the Johnny Raincloud. So you can imagine the "*GROAN*" and "Dear lord I'm so done" that accompany my companions when we break the crest of the hill on the other side of the intersection, and see that the entirety of the road up ahead for a solid 500 feet is covered in water, 3 trucks (and I don't mean pansy everyday trucks, I mean a truck that's built for working in fields and two built for construction) are stuck in this water. Quite a few people are trying to turn around in a VERY small parking lot on the left hand side of the road, and I join them, leaving the parking lot about 5 minutes later. So we turn back around and I drive us to the interstate. It is about 10 PM at this point. We know that there is a side road on the other side of the valley, which is a solid block higher up the hill, so we intend to find our way in from the other side. allow me to preface this section with a disclaimer- I have no sense of direction and my geography is horrific as well. I am relying solely on my brother (who lived in DM about 4 years prior to this) and Emma, who just has an actual sense of direction. She steers me to an exit that she thinks will be high and flat enough. It wasn't high and flat enough. We backtrack to the interstate another two exits. this one works out better than the first one, but we still run into a flooding of water on a fairly flat area that's not super low elevation. This is, for lack of a better way to explain this, one of those long roads that people use to get all the way across town and there are mediocre and crappy stores peppered on the sides of the roads. It was exactly the kind of area we expected to NOT find 3 cars stuck in the water blocking traffic on both sides. So we navigate around the water using side streets. This takes us a very long time. We go back and forth around the block north (? (remember I have no sense of direction just roll with the direction I gave)) of this street several times before we find ourselves at the top of the hill on the other side of the valley. As it turns out, the other side is less blocked, but the flooding is still horrific. The side street we'd been thinking we could take is painfully flooded. Most of the other cars we'd seen stuck up until this point were merely stuck with water up to the tops of their tires. This little side street had a card with water halfway up its windows, and its hood is going downhill into the water, so it's.... well, not in good shape I would imagine. The excessively stupid thing about this, is that right before the turn-in for our apartment complex there is a Family Dollar. There is water blocking the entrance from the main road AND from the side road. But somehow, the parking lot itself is dry enough to prevent people from stepping in water. It's merely wet floor, and not a pool. Now, some people might just cut their losses and just go to the airport, get ready, and sleep for 4 hours (It's 11:30ish at this point). Here's the thing though- my brother's luggage is in the car, because we picked him up. Emma and I left all our luggage in the apartment to leave room for the things we were bringing up for/with the cat. We were coming to terms at this point with the idea of going to Maine with only the clothing on our backs. We can't get to the apartment. So we say, "Screw it, we've been meandering for almost 2 hours now, and we still haven't eaten the Arby's we bought!" I drive us up the hill after a 9-point turn, and we pull into the gas station at the top. Oh, you think it's bad now? You're cute. We sit in the car IN THE DARK at the top of the hill and eat our Arby's. That's right, the power is out in roughly a 5 block radius. We sit and eat and discuss our next move. We know that we have limited options for getting onto the planes because all our flight info, while printed out, is sitting in our apartment, and we have no internet. We eventually decide that best case scenario, the water recedes enough by 3, an hour before we need to be at the airport, and we can collect our things. So Emma calls up a friend from work who she knows is up late most of the time. Sure thing, he's up, and he lets us collapse on his living room floor for three hours. It takes us another thirty minutes to get there where normally ten would necessary. Normally David can sleep anywhere. This is the only time in my 18 years of memory (I can't remember anything before age five), that I can remember him trying to sleep and failing to do so. This is a 32 year old man who prefers hotel floors to hotel beds, and he can't sleep on this living room floor. Emma gets 2 hours of sleep, I get 3, and he gets none. Thankfully, he's not driving. This is where things look up, finally. Hurrah! So we get up to an alarm on Emma's phone at 3, pile in the car and head toward our apartment. Now, I said things start to look up. I did NOT say things were all hunky-dory. We reach the valley where our apartment complex is, and we find the power (no shock here, no pun intended) is still out. It gets better though. While there are not policemen or maintenance people blocking the entrance on both sides of the valley, there are barricades! Yay! So we pull up to the curb near one and talk to one of the guys on the other side of the barricade, and he says that the water has receded enough and he's waiting for permission to move the barricades. Bloody beaurocromancers. On the other side, which we promptly head to (that side road is still flooded), is also barricaded off. My brother, who is fed up at this point and just wants to get on the plane and sleep, volunteers to move the barricade like the disobedient civilian he is. I was for this, but I also know that there is a little alleyway behind some stores on the top of the hill we ere on that led off to the other side of the barricades, and I could tell those alleys weren't barricaded off. Loopholes for life. So we take the alleyway that will take us to where we need to go. We are able to get into the apartment complex... This was one of those "How does this happen" moments that you only see a few times in your lifetime. There were about 8 vehicles in the remaining mud (not enough to get stuck in anymore, don't worry), but that wasn't the crazy part. There was a big jeep that had been lifted up by the water and was sitting on the front half of a compact car. It's one of those sights you really have to see to believe and fully comprehend. It. Looked. Ridiculous. So I took us through the impromptu junkyard and into the parking lot. The complex is on another hill, making a triangle of hills with the other two that form the valley. Thankfully we are living in an apartment building that is on the top side of the complex. That said, we are in the basement level. As we went into the building, we could tell there had been some water damage. The smell was ghastly. I can't identify smells to save my life, but I'm usually the first to notice them. I had to take deep breaths and hold them to walk up the hallway to our apartment. As we continued into the building and down the hall, we got the steady *squish squish* of wet carpet the whole way... until about 5-10 feet in front of our door. This would have been a relief on its own, but we know just how horribly this building is constructed and how poorly maintenance cares for it. We know the carpet being dry doesn't guarantee a bloody thing. The first thing I do when I step into the apartment is drop my hands to the floor and feel the kitchen tiles... they were dry. Instant relief. Now, remember, the power is still out at this point. We had packed everything that didn't have to wait until the day of (like toothbrushes and toothpaste). So we pulled out a lamp (yes, a lamp) from our hall closet and used that to fix up what was left, and get it out to the car. We lost the last of my chocolate milk and a lot of meat to that power outage. I had planned to finish that chocolate milk the night before we left, so that ground my gears, but from there we were able to pack up the car, drive to the airport (which had thankfully been built higher up and was thus minimally affected), and head out to Philadelphia, then Boston, and then we got driven by my dad who met us in Boston, all the way to the family farmhouse in Biddeford, Maine. Yeah this was two weeks ago now, it's kind of hard to believe it happened. But the miracles were as follows: We were not killed driving in that flood weather. Emma has stated that if she had been driving, we would have, and my brother is used to a car compact enough it takes up half the space mine does. We got our luggage. Trying going on a trip with nothing, including a reading book. For a week. One set of clothing. I dare you. We made our plane. The water didn't prevent us from reaching the airport. And that is the story of my vacation struggling to get off the ground. I hope you enjoyed laughing at my suffering, that's part of why I took the time to post this. Bye now

  6. Favorite Feature

    Despite not doing as much editing as I'd like, even above my vote (conversation) I would say my favorite part of RHQ is that not only does it help me, but I'm able to help it improve by contributing my time and effort! <shameless plug: we can always use more editors since Jagex is always updating, but I really do mean it, it's great being able to give back to the community!>

  12. Major Goal: Finish theorycrafting new PC build! RS 'Phite Club Pieces of Hate get that Quest Cape!! Not a very big list of goals I know, but I've got a bunch of major IRL stuff to deal with
  13. Pesky Ads!

    Copied, pasted, and editted from the Staff Ad Blocker post: I like these changes, they make things much more user friendly. However, the changes may have introduced an issue. I turned off my ad blocker when I joined staff, and then today my malware sweeper (Malwarebytes) had to keep blocking some of them anyway, which would then cause pages to crash. I agree that it makes a lot of sense for staff to keep ad blockers off since we bring in a lot of revenue that way, but I can't work on editting when the pages I'm working with repeatedly crash. Any suggestions/fixes?
  14. HYYYYYPE! Can we see all the submissions?
  15. First one down =3

    I always appreciate your puns
