So. Hawaii. Let's Talk about that.
« on: November 26, 2017, 04:54:50 pm »

So! We've reached that point of the move here. The any day now point.

So pretty soon, possible on next Saturday, I'm gonna board a plane to Hawaii. I will build a house with dad and one of my younger brothers. Then, after over a week or maybe more, the rest of my family will come.

I'll be the first to admit. I screwed this up because I wasn't sure about the time. At first, I thought I'd be gone there without internet for a month, and now it's with internet for a week. Maybe. I don't flipping know. I'll only find out when I get there. So I'll say it now: I would not bet on me having Internet during that time, so assume I'll be gone for two weeks. Maybe more, maybe less.

Next, even if I do have internet in that time, I probably won't be very active because, surprise, building a house is hard.

Finally, I am gonna be making a blog. Working on that now, you'll be seeing more on that in the future. When I do, I'll post about it here, so make sure to PTW if interested. And when I know that tomorrow I'll be going, I'll say so here as well.

Any questions?

No questions from me. Good luck on your move!

Good Luck!
Also, give the people who run the government there a high-five for me. They're tackling the lootbox issue.

Hmm... I have no idea what you're talking about. Minding sending me an article link or something?

Basically, the governments of Hawaii and Belgium are trying to ban lootboxes from the new Battlefront II, saying it's selling gambling to minors.

Have you not seen the absurdly gigantic controversy EA/DICE caused? Of course it's being tackled! :P

When I say that I mean, "I would literally rather put miniature speakers in my ears blasting a Justin Bieber song at full volume than talk or think about politics."

Of course I wouldn't know xD

@ Anti-Lootboxes Legislation

Yeah, it'll be wondrous at first. But then again, USA has a manchild president and stupid Conservative politicians, so at first they'll ban games with lootboxes, then they'll be banning any video game that depicts something what Conservatives demonize, like sex or violence. The law, if it'll be accepted, can easily become something like The Hays Code for Hollywood movies and The Comics Code for, well, comic books. Plus, from my general knowledge and experience with politicians of 21th century, it's not about actually protecting the kids. It's all about money, fame, tighter hold on media, or some combination of these three things. Russia's Anti-LGBT law is a prime example of "protect the children, but actually cause a fuck-up" kind of laws which "think of the children" attitude can lead to.

TL:DR: Don't think that any of politicians care about the poor innocent children. The legislation/law is not some one-sided "stop corporate madness", and it can be turned into an important gear in the censorship machine by the current US government.

Much less active than I used to be on these forums, but I still visit them on occasion. Will probably resume my activity in full once Dwarf Fortress will be released on Steam.

You know, I posted this same thing on another forum and someone thought I meant that too. So let me clarify: we probably aren't gonna be able to build the whole thing in a week. We'll be mostly clearing out the area in a week or so, then the rest will come.
