Picked up three LEGO games from Bundle Stars.  They are running a 3 for $10 bundle on the LEGO stuff.

Dog has decided that I need to pay attention to her rather than sit in my office.  If I spend time on the bed or couch, she'll be content to be on or near me.  But woe betide me if i'm the only one in the house and want to spend time at the computer.

I need to get back to Command: Northern Inferno. I've dipped back into War Thunder, playing the US tank line. Also, I fired up EUIII and did some of the tutorials after all the talk about Hearts of Iron IV.

Tomorrow is also the boardgame event, but I have no idea if I'll go. I have a surfeit of options, and not enough time.

Rumors of her refusal to do more nude scenes was greatly exaggerated:

Quote
But before any assumptions are made about Clarke’s participation in the scene, there’s something the actress wants everybody to know. “I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3,” she says. “That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!”

The production took pains to shoot Clarke’s portion of the scene on a private “closed set” in Belfast, while the rest of the sequence with the Dothraki actors was shot at the Vaes Dothrak village set constructed in the desert in Spain. Clarke said the set-up was preferable to, for instance, when Dany’s clothes were scorched off at the end of season 1. “Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a season 1 and go on a cliff and do it,” she notes. “I’m in control of it.”
...
It’s easy to understand why Clarke is being proactive and open about her feelings about the scene. Thrones actress Oona Chaplin once claimed an actress on the hit show didn’t like doing nude scenes (which some outlets just assumed was Clarke). Then last year a tabloid report claimed Clarke said she didn’t like doing sex scenes – which Clarke took to Instagram to correct.

“It’s difficult to be misquoted and it’s nice to have something like Instagram to say the truth,” Clarke says. “How many times has [Daario actor] Michiel Huisman been asked about the fact he’s taken his clothes off a bunch? Is that even a discussion? No. So I’m doing it this year and people can talk about it and I’m ready to answer any questions about it, basically.”

Also like the third time it's been on sale while in EA, every time for a different amount.

Rugby League Live 3 used to be purchasable from Steam.  The demo appears to be still available.

Tru Blu are sorting out some licensing issues on RLL3 and advise that they should be able to make it available again fairly soon.

Going to try another pass at the tutorial missions on Command: Northern Inferno.  Piecemeal missions on the air strike mission lost me a couple aircraft.  I learned a few things and am looking forward to getting a knowledge base built for it.

I sent him an e-mail.  Maybe we can convince him to update us.  Graduation should be Friday.

I bought the Command Modern... Ops Northern Inferno standalone for $8 as a sampler to see if I eventually wanted to buy the base game.

Also wasn't the man telling Theon's sister that she wasn't the leader yet also another brother of Balon?  I remember there was a strict hard core priest in the books who was Theon's uncle.

Yup, priest Aeron Greyjoy, The Damphair.

War of the Five Kings was what we've seen.  Robb, the Baratheons, Joffrey, and Balon.  Balon lost his sons near a decade prior to the start of the series in his solo rebellion, crushed by Robert, Stannis, and Ned.

The above is a MOBA.   The trouble I see is that there are no Ps in the M that are O for you to B in the A.

SNL is running their tribute this evening, hosted by Fallon. Those on the left coast should be on deck.

SNL is doing a Prince tribute this evening. Heads up for those on the left end of the country.

Me, I'm at my parents' to help them prep the house so they can retire to Florida.

Oh, and I developed Bell's palsy last night during the drive. Appears to be a mild case, only affecting my left eyelid and a part of my upper lip. The real pain is going to come from the ER CT scan bill.

I volunteered to help a friend move the remnants out of his apartment tomorrow afternoon.  The movers should have gotten the big stuff.

Pete should be finishing up clinicals this year.

U of AZ

Quote
April 10 (2015) turned out to be a day to remember for the 99 doctor of pharmacy students who that afternoon began their transition from the classroom phase to the clinical phase of their pharmacy education.
...
The ceremony symbolizes the transition from the passive environment of the classroom to the active environment of the clinic, in which students will apply everything they have learned in the past three years to the health and well-being of the patients they serve, John Regan, professor at the College of Pharmacy and master of ceremonies, told the assembled families and friends of the student pharmacists.

Representing the Class of 2016, Peter Semonche spoke of the trust, humanity, compassion and achievement that the white coat represents. He continued by explaining how the “classroom has taught us the importance of the white coat and all it symbolizes, but our closest friends and family have given value, worth and meaning to its symbolism and all we have worked so hard to achieve.”

Anyone have a line on Pete?

Did the boardgame thing, then spent Sunday with the wife and dog.  No electronic gaming to be had.

$90 a month I would pay.  That's only 50% higher than I'm paying know for less than 1/10th the speed. 

If the modem is a purchase cost, sure. 

$200 start up fee?  Not a chance.  Even if that did include the service call.

I firred up X-Wing from the Humble Bundle, and finished up a Supreme Commander mission.  Only took 6 hours of game time.

As a financial institution worker that gets the national days, I'd be down with it.

A different perspective: While today is a Monday, it would be March 1st if there were no leap day.  However, the year being extended means that December 31st is now on a Saturday instead of what would have been a Friday. 
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 2/26/16 edition on: February 28, 2016, 04:17:33 AM
Some more Qvadriga and some Supreme Commander.  SC is still a bit of a grind to get things up and running on a map, then weather the attack waves until you can get an attack force built.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 2/26/16 edition on: February 27, 2016, 04:57:07 AM
CC: Gateway to Caen and Qvadriga so far.

I have gaming ADD.  I have the manual pulled up for Close Combat: Gateway to Caen.  And I have plenty of other stuff that I've come across while card mining that looks good.  I have no idea.

Lots of laundry, vacuum and shampoo the carpet.  Fun times.  Got a little time in with Luftrausers, Democracy 3, and Colin McRae Rally.

Too many blown chances by the Panthers.  Denver's D was extremely fast.  Offensively, both sides were boring as hell to watch.  If the panthers of the last few games showed up, different story.

Congrats Denver, your defense is the real deal.

Both defenses were top 6 in the regular season in both points and yards allowed.  Denver was #1 in YPG.
