Sorry for your hassle doc - but remember people are often working under a shitty system so vent where appropriate, but take care not to take it out on some poor sod in the middle who isn't at fault (speaking as a customer service person  :)). And no, medication should never be issued automatically. Can't speak for the competence of your particular pharmacist, but the whole point is that a skilled human is doing it rather than a note in a computer file.

what's got me pissed off is the way that popular websites just insult our intelligence and talk to us like morons. And we just accept it. We know how to navigate their bullshit, so we just get on with it, but fuck you Netflix.

I just finished a re-watch of series 1 of Jessica Jones. Now I know that Netflix is going to throw the whole rest of that franchise at me in suggestions, I accept that, and it's helpful to some extent. So why do they shittily have to lie about it? Luke Cage is not the second "Most Popular on Netflix" and Daredevil is not "Trending Now".

And what do they suggest "Because you watched Marvel's Jessica Jones"? Defenders? Iron Fist? Any other Marvel/DC property? .
V wars
Warrior Nun
Kiss me First
Mortel

I mean what?

I haven't vented at them. I stay polite. But I know that they lie and I can't prove it. Last month we waited over TWO WEEKS for mothers monthly blood pressure tablets. Something that she needs to take every day... three emails ...and six phone call it took for them to finally arrive. It is NOT good enough. And the situation is only going to get worse with my mothers deteriorating health.

AAAAgggghhhh my bloody stupid and incompetent  Doctors surgery and chemists.... both giving me the run around AGAIN. Seems that every two months I am chasing them over some item or other missing from my mothers REGULAR ORDER. Shouldn't these items be issued automatically (Like some chemist adverts CLAIM they do?) So bloody annoying as it is frequently impossible to actually get hold of someone to speak to in the first place. Even the district nurses who come round twice a week complain at how bad it is to even contact the Doctors surgery for something. But even them don't seem to actually DO anything to help rectify the situation.

I think that would depend on how much you are willing to spend. You have heard of Hero Forge? Wonderful customizable RPG figurines... but rather pricy.... and that's excluding postage to the UK. It is cheaper if you have the confidence to paint them yourself... or have access to a 3 d printed...

Well due to the dreadful situation re distribution of Covid vaccine in Belgium.... it is beginning to look like he will not be able to visit us for the second year. This is not good for various reasons.

I am saving up for a webcam but I am torn between the 1. Logitech C920 or the advantages of the 3. Logitech StreamCam (+Content creation features Facial tracking+Auto-focusing) The webcam that I am using currently is the one integral to my laptop. the image quality is poor and it keeps turning of just leaving the background display up. (Not that I should complain that much I do have a face for radio) what do you folks think?

Someone was interested in a pic of my online D&D setup.

That's a nice set up... But I would have to have more ... reliable players to justify something like that.  Perhaps when I have more experience I'll ask for players.

Last nights session highlights...

Gatekeeper "I don't care if you are the chief eunuch to IO's left testical ... your not getting in here until I have talked to my superiors ..."

" four and twenty virgins went down to Inverness
  They visited Sir Christof and there were four and twenty less"
(Sir Christof Draco is Adrian's character ...)

Oh we worked out the Roll 20 problem... apparently you cannot start a new game using a mobile phone which was what Adrian was attempting I had no such woes when I opened my account on my laptop.

p.s. can't remember if it was one of the youtubers mentioned previously but there is a good vid about the difference between real rolelplaying sessions for 'normal' people and the ones you get on youtube - basically normal people play the game while the online ones perform the game for an audience - so don't get intimidated by all the acting, accents and the like (the most famous channel consists of a bunch of voice actors, for instance).

Anyway - for irregular groups, look up the Westmarch style of playing - the party has a base in a town where nothing happens (as in they can safely wander around without fear of combat encounters) and on any given session a group assembles and ventures out.  Though it sounds like you'd end up with really small groups who would have limited options - so another idea is to have each player run two PCs, and maybe have one stay at home if the party grows too big.


Despite my fear of being immodest.... "Performing" isn't something I am that intimidated by... far from it. (If it wasn't for my lack of hieght, connections in the industry and general "Cosmetic disadvantages" I'd of LOVED to be an actress... I have been told I have some talent... just try & stop me!

Hi there.... At the moment with such irregular players I am reluctant to make an investment in any equipment that honestly I can't afford. (although Adrian might already have a suitable camera)

Adrian has been trying to get Roll 20 to work but when he created his account it keeps telling him that he needs to enter a barcode in order to gain access to their tools... well we haven't got one of those yet!  How do we tell it that we are starting a campain... not trying to join an existing one?
