If you're doing konar I would
They a weight of 10 of 259 total for konar, the highest weight (with Hydras and Drakes)
Neive only does wyrms at a 7 of 262, not the highest weight (highest is TzHaar at 10, a bunch of stuff is 7-9)

1:55 AM
@Unionhawk I'm debating waiting to block them til I've gotten a harpoon
Also, just ordered a Pixel 6 Pro
 
 
2 hours later…
3:45 AM
Yeah that's probably a decent plan
I just got an essentially fully refurbished Pixel 4XL (new: motherboard, battery, screen, vibrator, top speaker, top microphone, front camera, back glass) so
I'm set for a while
all repaired free of charge thanks to a google extended warranty (read: they didn't want to have another Nexus 6P fiasco on their hands so they're fixing battery issues)
 
 
5 hours later…
9:08 AM
@Unionhawk Is there anything that's original about that phone?
 
ave
@Nzall back camera ig? lol
 
 
1 hour later…
10:13 AM
Just received my tax bill. I'm getting a pretty nice refund, just like the years before
 
 
2 hours later…
12:25 PM
@ave An excellent example of the Ship of Theseus thought experiment!
 
ave
wonder how well tf's irc gw handles emoji
🤚ship of theseus
👉unionhawk's phone
oh perfectly apparently. neat!
ah heck I should've said phone of unionhawk. oh well
 
@Lexibutt The difference is that in this case, it's probably not really possible to reassemble the original pieces into a working second Phone of Unionhawk
 
12:40 PM
@ave yeah it just passes the emoji through unmodified and it's up to the IRC client to render it, which any modern client should handle just fine if you have the right fonts installed
 
ave
ToxicFrog, yeah I was mostly wondering if it'd make it through from my client all the way over to SE more than the reverse tbh
 
The whole transmission chain should be UTF8-clean
 
ave
mhm, that's a better way to put it
 
I'm currently working on similar gateways for Google Chat and Discord, but it's a bit of a shitshow
 
ave
I should get back to gateway dev
hate to say it but I really need a way to get my phone notifs while in VR. which is to say... through fbm.
 
1:11 PM
@Nzall yeah by my count, back camera, bottom microphone and speaker
It even got a storage upgrade probably since Google didn't have a 64 GB board on hand and it took a whole month for parts
And charging module I guess
 
1:58 PM
i have a pixel 3a, maybe should look into upgrading
 
I'm still quite happy with my 3a, apart from all the damage, but IIRC it stops getting updates sometime next year
Aggravatingly my wife was looking at getting a P5 (would prefer a P5a, but for some reason they're US-and-Japan-only?) but decided to hold off until the P6 announcement to see if that looked substantially better
And that was apparently a mistake because Google discontinued the P5 the instant the P6 dropped
 
 
1 hour later…
@Memor-X ooo
 
3:36 PM
@Memor-X And only 50 EUR, even better
Like, if it was using modern prices we'd have to pay 70 EUR
 
it's $75AUD for me which is a surprise to me too since $60USD is $100AUD and been seeing console games hit $120AUD
 
ave
ooh equivalent of 32e here
 
@ToxicFrog I really like my P3, but the battery life is getting really short and the charging port is fiddly
I'm still worried I'm not going to like how huge the P6Pro is
But the regular P6 isn't much smaller
I'm really disappointed that Google has jumped on the huge phone bandwagon
That used to be what I really liked about the pixels: that they were on the smaller side
 
yeah, i'm pretty happy with the size of my pixel 3a
 
hello
 
3:49 PM
I've always used xl versions of pixels lol
 
anyone here play Techland games?
 
i have a bunch of them on GOG but havn't played any of them yet
 
@Unionhawk I've always used the regular sized ones, but I have smaller hands
 
4:34 PM
rip leagues 3 delayed to January 2022
 
4:59 PM
That's such a weird decision. Delaying a major content release that was only two weeks away to avoid disrupting the minority of players who want uninterrupted time playing another recent content update.

6:13 PM
@SaintWacko Got the One Plus 6 that is starting to show it's age
especially since reading the One Plus subreddit they are doing garbage updates that deliberately slow your phone. And I think i'm feeling it
Might jump to the Pixel next time I buy a phone
especially since the pixel is now actually cheaper than the One Plus, and being cheaper than the others was one of the big One Plus selling point
 
6:31 PM
@Fredy31 I've been using Pixels since the original, and I've loved them. They're kinda the Android version of the iPhone. They and Android are built to go together, so they get cool features first, and run super smooth
And the camera is just top notch. Nothing compares
@Unionhawk wtf
 
welp, got a job offer and now i have to decide whether to accept it or not
 
@SaintWacko RIP? What is that game?
@Yuuki What are the pros of your job, and the pros of the offer you got?
 
@Fredy31 It's a game mode in Oldschool Runescape
 
@Fredy31 pros of my current job is that it's currently (temporarily) 100% remote (this is likely to change whenever "things go back to normal"), i've been working there for five years so i'm familiar with how things work, and the commute (once we stop WFH) is easier though the new offer isn't much worse
pros of the offer is that it's a bigger company, new skills for me to learn, and at first glance, some of the benefits seem better
 
7:43 PM
@Yuuki bigger company sounds better, tbh
The WFH advantage is bound to go anyways
 
i think most of my hesitation is that i didn't go looking for this job
 
7:55 PM
A certain online retail and cloud services corporation with a primary headquarters in Seattle, WA which shall remain nameless has been trying pretty hard to recruit me but like, idk
(for something in WA or VA or maybe remote but probably not except the VA is essentially DC, about 2 miles from IAD lol)
 
@Yuuki ish, that is a red flag to me. If they go out of their way to go get people that didn't even show any interest first... that company has burned many people if nobody applies
 
@Fredy31 well, it's not like they reached out to me out of the blue. basically, a friend of a friend who works there mentioned they were looking for employees and i signed up for an interview partly to just get some interviewing experience
 
because except if you have like only 5-6 people that can do it in the state, when a company goes out of their way to find people it sounds to me that 'we opened an application, nobody applied'
 
figuring out where the VA office was on a map changes my calculation here I think good thing I looked that up
 
And trying to figure out why can be eye opening
 
8:01 PM
since both Seattle and DC are going to be like a 500% cost of living increase
 
@Yuuki oh then that sounds fine. You also have your inside man to tell you what it is inside.
 
8:40 PM
@Unionhawk okay, we definitely know what company you're talking about. I'm surprised they're even trying to recruit someone who's that much into unions like you
 
That's because they have not found my social media lol
Either way I get to do more coding problems and such even though I'm fairly sure this is a not interested from me
we'll see lol
 
9:33 PM
@Memor-X so something weird about this when you paste the link into discord
not sure where it's getting that price from. that's generally pulled from the US Price and even SteamDB doesn't show anything like that
 
10:15 PM
looks like they fixed it
shows 49.99 for me
