    Default Feytalist's Fantastically Freakish First Random Banter #171

    Welcome kids, to this fantastic funhouse of irrepressible, unrestrained conversation in this sandbox we call the Playground.
    To make sure we all all play nice, there's a few little rules we all need to follow. Not too much to ask, is it?

    Rules and such:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.

    Silly people who're already playing Skyrim. I'm gonna have to wait another two weeks or so. Blegh.

    So, as I mentioned, I'm the only person in my office today. So I'm gonna have to do the work of three people. And they say men can't multitask

    Men can't multitask. Instead, we do our tasks in serial order but with greater efficiency. By constantly switching between a multitude of tasks, it's possible to make it seem as if we can multitask, however. [/computer related reference]

    Eh, overrated game. It is fun, I'd give it a 4/5, but it is not worth all the hype. Admittedly, dual-wielding fire spells kills stuff VERY quickly, and is immensely fun.

    I hate hayfever.

    Oh so very, very much.

    My nasal passages are like hellfire.
    You can shout it from the roof-tops, you'll be preaching to the choir.
    And you better get started on this funeral pyre, and one day I will truly set myself on fire so you can see how dim my light is.
    So you can see how dim is my life

    Women can't multitask either. Computers can multitask. Humans can switch-task. Some situations call for single-tasking, some for switch-tasking. Some women are good at switch-tasking, some men are good at it, anyone positing a natural difference between the genders is talking Essentialist Claptrap™, etc.

    Sir, as a medical professional, I regret to inform you that you have a severe case of Skyrimitis. In my considered opinion, you must vacate the works premises immediately and proceed with due haste to the nearest dispenser with this prescription:

    Once home, begin medication, followed by bed rest, or just rest in general for at least three days.

    Never been a big fan of Penny Arcade, but the Skyrim ones were pretty funny.

    My thoughts exactly. Skyrim is, quite simply, an Elder Scrolls game. What this means is that melee is for insane people, stick with bows and magic. Become the Archmage and the Thiefguild master and you are the new god. AI is pathetic as always (though the dragons are slightly smarter then you'd expect).

    All in all, its a "totally an Elder Scrolls" type of game.

    I'm not getting Skyrim for a while.


    Mostly because I'm getting Skyward Sword on release day, and I don't want to be working on two new games at once.

    I admit, I giggled like a little schoolgirl at that

    As for Skyrim, I'm basically expecting Oblivion++. Which says a lot, because I loved Oblivion. Hell, I'm still playing it.

    Update on my triple workday: actually went pretty okay so far. Lots of answering the phone, which I'm not used to, but no SNAFUs... yet. 1h30 to go.

    From the discomfort of truth there is only one refuge and that is ignorance. I do not need to be comfortable, and I will not take refuge. I demand to *know*.

    So a while ago, I decided to thoroughly spade the trading system from Freelancer, to try and optimise profits from it. I got bogged down in data entry and stopped for a while, but I'm thinking about picking the project up again. I spoke to my OR lecturer today, and she pointed me at the problems I'd need to look into to solve the model I've constructed.

    I've found that in order to solve it, I'll need a thorough understanding of the latest research on the Travelling Salesman Problem.

    This hasn't deterred me.

    I think I'm going to make this my official project for next semester - and possibly for the year-long project next year as well - and put it towards my degree. It's a computer game. Am I taking this too seriously?

    Not at all. Council for the defence cites precident in EVE Online, a game with its own dedicated economist.

    Some of the number crunching involved in calculating profit margins in manufacture, mining, R&D is truly incredible.

    Brief synopsis: There are ~160 planets and 38 commodities. Each planet buys each commodity at a given price, and sells a subset of them. Prices vary across commodities and across planets. Thus, each pair of planets has a profit associated, based on the difference between the buy and sell price of the best commodity between those planets. Each pair also has a travel time between them, based on how far apart they are. I want to try and come up with an algorithm that will find a route visiting several planets and returning to the starting point, maximising profit per unit time. This turns out to be very hard.

    If and when I manage to solve that, there are extensions - bandit activity on certain routes, perishable goods that decay at a fixed rate in transit, contraband goods that are illegal in civilised space... it can be expanded indefinitely.

    A teacher (a guitar-player in a band that I've talked about music with many times before) at school approached me today and asked me if I had any original songs. When I said yes, he asked me if I'd be interested in recording for this podcast he's now in charge of dedicated to showcase Appalachian talent. He also said that I could play part of a show with him at a bookstore sometime in February.

    Things are looking good.

    Mostly because I'm getting Skyward Sword on release day, and I don't want to be working on two new games at once.
    Same here. I'm getting the special edition

    I'm actually going to have to wait until at least Christmas before I get Skyrim, but it's worth it.

    Although, that would be interesting.
