You know what's worse than having a bad cold? Having it in the summer.
Playing pokemon go. It really does a number on my phone battery.
Tried my hand at mystery shopping today.
To sum up the experience, it isn't worth it. Probably.
At least in this case. I think the payout is under $20. And you have to buy something from the store and aren't reimbursed for it. If the store was closer to me, then maybe. But as it is, this is probably a one time gig.
Just scored HUGE at the geek swap meet. Was able to pick up a gambeson, a couple of tabards and some leather pieces (belt/pouch/scabbard/etc...) for under $40.
The guy even threw in a gorget that I didn't even want.
Basically, new, these items would have run ~$300 - $350. Most of it is used, but it's all in great condition. I wasn't sure I'd be able to afford to dress for the ren faire next weekend, but because of this I probably will.
Watched the most recent Two-Minute Papers on youtube. Looking forward to trying out their code to create materials. Very intersting use of AI.
Considering applying to do some 3D models for Beyond Skyrim. Also considering I might be insane.
Pandemic Legacy - July. Another win. But not without a cost. Botg of our Characters gained permanent scars.
Interesting day. Saw an eagle at a bird treatment center. Played board games with the volunteer crew.
Unexpectes and welcome.
Oof. Laptop's been off for a week while waiting for the new fan. Running updates. 252 packages to update.
Laptop fan replacement successful.
This fan is a touch louder than the original fan was when new. But it's quieter than the failing original.
Not going to complain, amazon got it to me cheap and fast. If it bothers me I can always look into a quieter fan.
It's funny. My laptop is actually louder than my gaming desktop. But I focused on getting silent/near silent fans for that.
This is turning into a crummy day.
Grey Sky. ✅
Occassional water from the sky. ✅
Public transpo. ✅
Doggo not feeling well. ✅ 🐶
On the plus side, I did find a comfy pair of shoes. And a tray of mini Italian desserts. If I can find a cheapish bike pump this trip can be a success.
Then maybe I can finish modelling the house I'm working on in Blender. Looking forward to texturing/finishing this project.
