Sipia, that is twice you have singled me out and harassed me.
I'm not here to conform myself to fit anyone's views.
Yo, don't worry. I don't think anyone was targeting you at all. Obviously I don't know your past etc but definitely from a cool headed outside perspective it certainly doesn't seem the way you're perceiving it? Just relax, all are welcome so try to forget about old things. We can never progress in ourselves unless we learn to let the past go and move forward.
Vainstein, political discussions are not allowed in TC anymore after the.
This is exactly the reason why Sipia picked up on what you said Vainstein. I made it clear from day one that political discussions were best left to either the OD or Library and won't be allowed here on AOKH. Sipia was pointing that out to you. So yea, please, no political discussions. This is a prime example; just one short conversation and it has already caused a lot of upset, and it's not what we want here.
...You have some issues, man.
Tbf, this wasn't really necessary Sipia. Can we try to refrain from attacking each other? Personal attacks are also noted in the new rules. Like Moff said, let's just enjoy the ride whilst we can; nobodies enemies here. I'm sure we can play nice
I'll just give both parties a couple day ban
I think for now definitely just a warning is ok; seems lot more of a misunderstanding here so that's why I thought I'd butt in with my outside opinion. Just from reading the last few pages it definitely seems like some tensions, but I really felt the hostilities were unnecessary. Though of course, Major, do as you feel if things continue on a negative path. Just a note for everyone though that's not our desired result, but it's only necessary if somebodies really distrupting the forums. So again, let's be friends
Has anyone worked on their cooking skills during quarantine?
No. Hahaha. My cooking got worse because I lost the motivation. I have been trying a lot of new food though. I used to despise mushrooms but recently started to enjoy a few types; mainly Maitake mushrooms which have an interesting texture. I've also been trying out and eating varying types of Tofu after trying to cut down (not out) my meat consumption, not because I'm becoming a hippy or anything but just for health reasons.
I was (trying to act as a) project leader during the latter basic design
That's pretty cool! I'm glad it's not one of those concrete block house/apartments that are popping up all over the place atmo. Can't stand them. These things:

I think MK got the "desu" right. I'll probably just add that since "desu" is polite language, people usually use "da" among friends and family instead. And since women tend to be more polite than men here, using "desu" a lot even in fairly casual settings tend to sound a bit feminine. Like "watashi". And fufufu.
Fufufu, watashi wa kore ga sukidesu.

According to Google Translate: Hehehe, I like this.
It's hip to be square.
Fufufu.

Still, nice work, man. I imagine that's a process that takes even longer than publishing. And it stays relevant considerably longer.
At least it's not one of those concrete block house/apartments that are popping up all over the place atmo. Can't stand them. These things:

I would love a pimped out fortified bunker but unfortunately my location is probably not the best place for one

On a seperate post apocolyptic topic, I've recently started to grow my own vegetables. I'm talking one long pot here, growing cherry tomatoes, kale and baby spinach. And by recently I mean... there's some seeds in a bunch of soil...

Anyone else had any quarantine 'extra time, new me' moments?

For me, I've been lifting weights more now that I haven't got the excuse of "I'm tired after a long day at work and having to interact with people" Then again, it's looking like I'm mostly doing the "no day is a leg day" more and more (besides the deadlifts)

Oh, and that bare concrete building looks horrendous, surely that's not the final look?!

We have a backyard with a small garden. There's a few chili pepper bushes happily growing there already and this year we expanded, tilled and nourished the soil to grow tomatoes, corn and a couple of squash plants, among other bits and pieces planted there.

It seemed like we would lose most of the new crops when our dog got inside and dug the whole thing up during the night, but a few seeds sprouted a couple weeks later so we might save them after all.

Not really.

Can't really, anyways. Landlord shut off the gas for the stove. Not sure why, but oh well. I never liked it, anyways.
Age of... Kinks?

There's a modpack idea, lads.
There's enough units for it.

Though none of them are really that lew.. Actually, I think there's one or two of them that are kind of "". They're converted Civ 3 units, though. Taken straight from a Civ 3 forum, and IIRC not even converted to SLP or anything usable in AOK. So the """""-nudge-nudge-know-what-i-mean"-ness would be the least of its problems.

EDIT: Jeez looking at it now, that's the most smileys I've used in a post since I got back.

RE-EDIT: And now that I look at it, I think I used one too many. Holy catdogs, what was I on?!

That's pretty cool! I'm glad it's not one of those concrete block house/apartments that are popping up all over the place atmo. Can't stand them. These things:
Context aside, the building itself is not the best. I think the concrete finish is sloppy. The deep window niches and overall bulky proportions tells me the architect probably admires brutalism. And the exterior landscaping ... I'm not sure what's going on there, except that nothing's going on.
I imagine that's a process that takes even longer than publishing. And it stays relevant considerably longer.
Well, architecture is never a solo effort, and in Japan the hierarchy is strong, so I just want to be super-clear that if this ever gets published anywhere, all credit goes to my principal (who is the main designer). In publishing you can at least be the sole author of the thing. As for relevancy, I estimate this building will stand for 30 years, then it'll be demolished. Such are sadly the ways in this city.

Anyway, thanks!
