If it wasn't for e-mail and how everyone has their names as their identifiers, I.. likely wouldn't know the last names of several of the people I've played D&D with for the past.. oh, 8 years, give or take.


See, I had the opposite problem. I played D&D, I played MMOs, I played Magic the Gathering, etc, for 10 years with the same group of people in the military, with the crew only changing due to PCS/TDY/Finding someone new who was cool, and I didn't know most of their first names. I had that thought that they show in your quote, and suddenly I turned to the lady who had been playing my sister in the D&D group, and said, "Hi, I'm *first name*. Who the fuck are you?" We all stopped, chuckled, laughed, then were mostly incapacitated by laughter as we slammed our fists on nearby people/objects as we all came to the same realization. We had not a god damn clue what each other's given names were.

Well, that's Military. If movies and TVs are any indicators of reality (And we all know they're 100% accurate, all the time, even when they're wrong), they have lead me to believe that in the Military lifestyle surnames act as first names do in the NonMilitary world and, by extension and my assuming, first names become as surnames do in the NonMilitary world - something that you should know of people you spend a lot of time with, but something you rarely ever use.

So that story makes sense.

Doesn't make it any less funny. Because that's funny.

I can't decide if today was an excellent or terrible monday. It started at a lake, with a private beach, excellent weather, and good company. After a period of driving, it turned into a short, quite shift at work. Breakfast on the beach is a lot better than the morning slog, but having to leave to go to work was a bit of a downer.

I do the same thing, on occasion. Not specifically read old logs, but just go and lurk on my old stomping grounds (actually, I was doing that here, then I started posting. We'll see how long it lasts) and ride the nostalgia wave. It's interesting seeing how far I've come from a couple years ago.

Re not knowing names: there are people on the fora I consider to be at least very good aquiantances and maybe even friends who I know by username. Sometimes I don't know their name at all; others I know their name but it's secondary data, to me they are <username>.

Even at university; we had a friend who nicknamed everything. Especially lecturers. So to this day I fondly remember Shrek, Grandma and Basmati, but have absolutely no idea what those people's actual last names are.

Identifiers: they're funny things, and given names are just one (if the most oft-encountered) type.

Laughable though it might be, I'd personally still prefer it to Windows if someone forced me to choose. (Then again, I'd rather have a badger grafted to my rectum than using Windows on a home computer, but that's just me.)

Regardless of the OS itself, the EULA is the stuff of nightmares. Even supposing Win7 is the perfect OS, that's still like finding a pot of gold with a note stating "Dear finder, this is my gold. You may play with it and look at it as much as you like, but if you spend any, or lose any, other otherwise do anything disagreeable with, I will see to it that you burn for all of eternity. Sincerely, Satan. P.S.: by reading this notice, your first-born child's soul is forfeit."

Also, I have a lot of trouble with the idea of an operating system which could essentially be doing anything behind the user's back, considering only the developers have access to the source code. That goes for Mac, too - in light of recent developments, I don't trust Apple any more than Microsoft either.

Link, I can't disagree with you there. Fact is, though, I work in an industry that uses MS technology (and I enjoy my job - most of the time) so Windows is going to be a part of my life. So it's a sort of defense mechanism to go "la la la la I'm not thinking about it!" wrt to the issues you mention. It doesn't appear to really affect my experience so I am willfully, blissfully ignorant about it.

My PBJ took 2.5 hours to make, but it was worth every minute. I didn't have any bread, so I took out the bread maker and made a mango banana bread. I didn't have any jelly so I crushed some fresh blueberries. Damn good PBJ.

Caption- "I caught you a delicious Bass"

All war is fought over resources/greed. You can paint that shit anyway you want, but in the end, that's what it has boiled down to since the days of the hunter gather. I wonder what global population the earth could sustain. With advancements in technology like desalination, fish farming...silver nitrate in the clouds..., how many people could peacefully coexist? At the pace we are currently going, South America would be the apple core. Did anyone else watch that disturbing, yet thought provoking, show about the face of America over the next 100 years? I sadly think it was rather optimistic. What happens when the classes really start to slide and the interpretation of the narrative changes? You can't sell what you don't have.

Oh, I can direct and maintain conversations about all kinds of shit to gain insight.

God, that was a good PBJ.

I'm looking into buying ladybirds online to try and combat the swarms of greenfly we have in our garden (and as a result in our house and in my parents' cars and on our clothes and...). Does anybody know if there's anything I should be looking into before I do that or if I should just go ahead and buy a box of them? Buying live bugs off the internet seems a little strange to me.

Ladybugs (sorry, I'm a USian) need pollen, normally flower pollen, as a source of food. I had a massive aphid infestation in my roses one year and brought in some ladybugs to help take care of the issue, worked like a charm. They didn't seem to disturb my roses, and they helped get rid of leaf rust while they were at it. The only thing that my gardener friend mentioned was what I stated above, no flower pollen, no happy ladybugs.

I think it depends on the type of pepper. Black and white peppers are berries, but chili peppers are fruits.
