These forums have had their day...

The forums were originally gamertalk.biz and belonged to an old friend, and fellow former Interplay/Black Isle forum mod, Kevin (aka Valqorez). When the Winterwind site was launched by a few friends, he wiped them and let Winterwind use the forums and eventually merged them with the site. The gaming...

Re: Random events of the day

Was she by any chance Albanian? Josan with heart-ache, job trouble and trying to keep ww alive... remind, what year is it again? :look: Sorry mate, it sucks. It's just that it sounds so familiar and similar to the world situation from before i went on a long forum hiatus. It's a bit like that old j...

Re: Random events of the day

Thanks. Literally the perfect storm. They should name a hurricane after a certain lady. You see, the one that irrevocably altered my life, causing the first two events is also the one that abandoned me. I can almost here her saying "Well, my work here is done". Still, I endeavour to remain philosoph...

Re: Random events of the day

So... my marriage is over, I'm looking for a new job and I've been abandoned (maybe even betrayed) by the person I thought was the closest friend I could ever have. Bad things comes in threes, right? So it's got to get better. Hopefully. At least now you know why I haven't been around. Also, if I ev...

Re: Random rant of the day

Well, the contractor and I weren't 100%. We were guessing based on the age. But the floor in the bathroom is maybe 5'x5'. Either way... laws here are only enforced when someone reports the property owner.

Re: Random rant of the day

Well, eight hours yesterday, another five today and... our bathroom floor is... mostly done. The room isn't even 6'x6' but it was two subfloors on top of... yep, old asbestos backed floor tiles. The guy, who does good work, said it's the worst floor he's ever done. And the fricking walls aren't stra...

Re: Random rant of the day

Kind of a funny update - So, he was puttering around last night in the yard when we came home, and, as my wife said after, incredibly lucid, and he'll get the material, I'll do the work. Between his pension and his wife's job he doesn't qualify for the utility company's free energy efficient upgrade...

Re: Random rant of the day

Yeah, well, he was up here Sunday with a contractor he hired to finally fix the rotted subfloor in the bathroom. And when we showed him the black mold he said it was the first time he'd heard of it. He's either stupid or a liar but my wife finally stopped feeling sorry for him and started getting ma...

Re: Random rant of the day

Well, it was funny in a sad way. We gave him the letter, with pictures, and he said "but they guy said he insulated it" to which we replied he didn't... but he said he did... well, he didn't... but he said he did... well, he didn't and here are the pictures proving it. It's a three-part issue with h...

Re: Random rant of the day

Giving our landlord a letter today... We've lived here just over a year. He's a nice enough guy, a retired bus driver and... a raging alcoholic with memory problems (or at least he claims he never remembers what we tell him) and no clue about how to maintain a home, one he's owned for 40 years and w...

Re: Random rant of the day

Danes have this thing for pickled Herring and Schnaps Fun fact, in some places (e.g. Poland as far as I know) traditional Herring salad is made with Herring sperm. :haha: A life hack for your fun fact, don't eat the Herring salad in Poland. Now, you must go and cut down the tallest tree in the fore...

Well, I don't do Star Wars or superheros and Alien... acquiring the rights to a 40 year old film because they bought the studio that originally made it does not make Alien a Disney film.

Can't say I've watched anything from Disney since I was about 10 years old. ;)
