This.  This intrigues me.

Slashes, we literally printed out all the posts and they sit on our play table waiting for our next play session.  Hell of a job.

You know, I'm going to give DTRPG a +1 for consumer awesomeness regarding this.  It's very possible that, while their platform was breached, they didn't actually lose customer data, but they STILL told their consumers in a somewhat speedy manner that they suffered a breach, and the time period of such breach.  Good on them.  And hopefully the perps responsible live somewhere with an extradition treaty.

Thanks mate!  The series spun up on my Audible account and I was just curious.

Going to play the voice of doom here and point that while all of that is vexing and disadvantageous for certain you could be in a position of having no job, no skills, no meaningful education and no assets worth a damn.

I respect your troubles, but if anyone wants to talk "worse" I'm a good place to start as bad places to end up can be figured.

Touche.  And while I may joke that I want to strangle my co-workers, I do enjoy my job and am thankful for having the skills I've been lucky enough to acquire.  Maybe the good luck 'Roo will hop over your way.  I could share some at this point.  I've had a good go.  Smiley

The lusers I've had the unfortunate task of interacting with before.  They're nothing new.  This is for contractor and "escalated privileged" staff oversight (SysAds).

Not sure if you guys are allowed to even answer this, but with the line of Mistborn going, any plans for a line of Reckoners?

Mwuhahahahahahahahahahahahhaha.

One of us, one of us.

But seriously, do you have ready access to scrap carpet and quick lime?

Look around you can you form some sort of rudimentary crematory?

LOL.  I could actually probably create one using magnesium? But yea, the theory is easy enough.  I knew most of it already.  The tech side.. oh man.. and people tell me how "MOA" is confusing.  It'll take that over AES any day!

While I've always had oversight of IT as a part of my civilian career, it's always been at arm's length and typically only involved when something goes stupidly wrong and it crosses into my bucket.  Yea.  That changed.  I now have to get my CIH & CISSP by year's end to 'address the complex and changing requirements of your position'.  To which I replied, "Great.  Does that come with more money?" lol.

It's never a good sign when your boss tells you that and your first reaction is to google what the hell you just got told.

I never really thought Shadowrun's combat was that deadly.  Of course we didn't play much because the crunch is so unpleasant.  (And some things are just weird.  What do you mean I can't use pistol ammo in a submachine gun?  That is a defining characteristic of an SMG.)

The way most folks play Shadowrun, it might make more sense to play down in Mexico during the corp wars...

What do you mean I have a better chance of understanding String Theory taught by a Toddler who only speaks broken Mandarin than figuring out the WiFi rules?

Oddly enough, the NZ SAS (our only proper 'special' force) is a pretty secretive organisation. The public aren't allowed to know who serves, with one exception. It's possible there are female members, but we won't find out till they retire, or receive a noteworthy award (like Apiata).

NZ also elected the first openly transgender Member of Parliament. She wasn't standing in a traditionally liberal electorate, but a historically conservative one.

Ah ha!  I think my Kiwi friend left that part out on purpose.. because she knows I'd pry. lol.

And as befits the first country that gave women the vote, I believe NZ's armed forces allow women to serve without restriction?

I actually, strangely, know that answer.  And it is indeed true.  Women in the NZ forces are allowed to strike for any job, including special forces.

And for a purely curious statistical standpoint, what's the percentage of women actually being in the NZ special forces?

As far as I know, no women have successfully entered the NZ special forces.  However, they are able to and as far as I know, aren't 'targeted' to make sure they fail.  They DO however server in armored divisions. (That's actually how I know. lol)

Jared of Subway that chain sandwich restaurant is to plead guilty to child porn and traveling for illicit acts on a minor.  Pay $1.4 million to FOURTEEN children ($100k each) he abused and spend 5-12 years in prison.  Seriously?  Fourteen?  Dude better hope no fathers are good with shotguns.

Another piece of artwork.
