You old farts can knock Cobain all you want...for that particular song I like his version better. It’s not like I said ‘I Prefer Right Said Fred over Bowie.’

The way to handle daughter problems is to live long enough until they have daughters causing them problems and then just sit back and laugh your ass off.  <:-)  But for the present, a healthy dose of Saltpeter in the boyfriend's drink you serve him will help you sleep better at night.  O0

My beef with Kurt is well documented.  As I grow older, I find much less vitriol behind it.  The reason still remains.  I know he's a hero and icon to millions and I respect that.  Bowie still wins though ;)

My daughters are 10 and 12...danger lurks. Everywhere.

  My daughter is 8.  She has a thing about one boy (boy A)  and another that she wants to beat up (boy B).  So on Halloween she was Athena, but left her spear at home, so when she caught boy B dressed as a Roman soldier in a crowd of ancient-themed tricker-treaters she was mourning for her absent spear when she spotted boy A -- a very tall 8-year-old in a Ninja suit -- they ran toward each other calling each other's names while a whole street of hundreds (Halloween is a mob-scene in downtown Boone) watched and held their breath.  The two collided in an strong embrace.  the boy lost both his swords and the girl (my daughter)'s helmet popped off.  She tried to enlist boy A in her vendetta, but he claimed he had better things to do and I said we should go back to the haunted house now that the shift had changed and the candy-supplies were restocked -- so we did that and boy B escaped.
   So ...hmmm...

I'm at Blizzcon in Anaheim this weekend. So doing lots of stuff gaming related but not much gaming. Have played a little Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. Also picked on Diablo 3 for the Switch yesterday. I got a few minutes with it last night, my initial impression is it plays pretty well, but haven't played it enough for a definitive opinion. Although I am biased given how much Diablo 3 I play on PC.
PanzersEast: Have to think to myself.... will I play the first one by the Winter Sale?  Probably not, then I should remove Dragonfall
PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

My grand daughters like to use green playdoh to use as 'boogers' and pretend to sneeze them on people. It's great to see Family Traditions continuing.  :clap:

Holy shit, Yazzy.  Solium Infernum...now that's a game I'd forgotten all about!  I wonder if I can still download it...gosh, I forgot I even had that guy's games.

As a reminder, here's the forum thread (which also features a link to the most recent patch, 1.08c).

As long as you still have the key he mailed you originally, he'll send you the game. It's only a few hundred Megs.

Well I survived movie night.  The boy was very polite and actually held a conversation with me.  Nothing else happened except for movie watching.  I know because I conducted covert ops monitoring the family room.  Heh heh!
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.
