Last thread here.

 

I'm studying for my finals here in January and getting serious with the bartender, so this single life might be coming to an end soon.

Having the least productive week whole year. No cases, really, just a bunch of small stuff that should be taken care of. Boored. Also going to spend the weekend doing job applications >_<

Haha, got the equivalent of a writ of certiorari (ie. my case accepted on the Supreme Court's docket). :D

Having a non-productive week due to a weird mix of procrastination and constant little things cropping up that seem to be sapping my time, effort and willpower away.

 

Woke up early for some reason, got to watch the light of dawn slowly creep in and fill my room while trying to get back to sleep.

Boss asked me to take one of the PDF forms we designed and turn it into a Word file, since the localisation firm we're hiring doesn't have Adobe CSS or Quark. Cue me looking up whether it was possible to adjust leading, kerning, and tracking using Microsoft Word.

I had a dream where strange metaphors hinted that I'll die from an agonizing illness in two years. Meh, where are the dreams of unicorns, beautiful angels and rainbows? Huh?  :banghead:

Oh, and today I asked myself how Mars can have little streams of water on the surface if the atmosphere has 1% of the density of earths. Shouldn't it vaporize almost instantly?

Not if it is cold enough, I guess? If it's cold enough I think that water holds together better despite the lower pressure.

 

I'm just purely guessing here though. :<

Yeah but its either cold enough to freeze (Mars got ice poles) or the lack of an atmosphere makes it boil. I don't think there is an in-between that keeps its stable so it forms little rivers. 

Jupiters moon Europa has a water geyser that creates a dust cloud of frozen water particles. If it was warmer I guess the water would simply vaporize. But flowing water without an atmosphere?

Mars does have an atmosphere though, even though it's barely there, it'd be enough I think. It's some pressure, even if it's low enough to make a human go "pop!". Aslong as it does'nt get warm enough to instantly vapourize the water. *Shrug*

 

Europa - from what I've been told - keeps it's water flowing with help of the tidal forces acting on the waters underneath the giant ice sheathe on the planet, and is basically getting heat from, well, friction I suppose.

Did it go well?

Yeah but Mars is really just a tad above vacuum, in fact 1% or less of earths atmosphere density is labeled as ''trace gas'', and Mars' atmosphere density is 0,6%. I really doubt its enough to keep liquid water from boiling.
The only way to keep water from escaping the planet or asteroid via vaporization is to keep it frozen, like the poles on Mars, or under lots of pressure. It can't turn into a liquid state without vaporizing in a near vacuum environment.

Gonna have to send this question to NASA.

I also want to ask them about artificial gravity created through centrifugal forces, it doesn't really work how its portrayed in Sci-Fi movies (Simply spinning a space ship etc.) Its much more complex and nearly impossible to do.

 

Anyway, today I found a little spider pendant a friend of mane gave me as a gift so I made a necklace out of it just for fun. I actually like it, though it makes me look like some sort of cultist. I guess it gives me +1 for my saving throws. 

 

Praise the spider queen!

*login to bank site*
Get forced-view page - "Go Green! Turn off paper statements! Yes/No?"
*Press No* (repeat once or twice every month for a year or more)

*login to bank site*
"Congrats! We've switched you to paperless statements! Click here to view them!"
*find the tiny print link to "change back" and do that*
(repeat once a year or so)

Dear Bank: I appreciate that if my house burns down you'll still have many records of my financial habits for me to refer to (unlike the old days). But I still want paper, too. So all those times I press "NO?" Should give you a clue. Stop changing my preferences without my explicit permission. If you want to save stamp-money for your bottom line, stop sending me junk mail offers instead. Thanks.

Been trying to complete my NPC for Pillars of Eternity. I had 3 A4 papers written down, but you don't get as much room on the pledge site to fit half of that in. This is very challenging, but in a good way. Even if he/she/if it turns out crappy, it's still exciting knowing that you'll see the character in an actual Obsidian game. I said I'd never put big money on a Kickstarter ever again, but if this turns out good, I might do a big pledge for Obsidian KS#2.

I still haven't decided on a memorial slogan. Of course, that could be partly because I haven't spent a ton of time thinking about it after the initial day. Serious or silly...that's what I can't decide.

 

If I had been able to create an NPC I'd probably have created a talking cat, to ensure there would be at least one cat in the game, which Obsidian would then have likely laughed at and written to politely ask me to make a real NPC. :biggrin:

I have no idea what I'll write on my memorial. Totally clueless.

That's why I decided to stay at my original 250 level, when I was reviewing my pledge today. Just threw in an extra t-shirt... :/
