    Some neat stuff in the PC Gaming Show today.

    Flintlock: Siege of Dawn for a new release window (summer 2024). Nu-Bloodlines 2 revealed its 3rd clan (Banu Haqim, formerly knows as Assamite), and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was voted the most anticipated PC game of 2024, and got a new story trailer, featuring a return of one of your party members from Call of Prypyat'

    Also, Homeworld 3 looks amazing, and a bunch of games got demos.

    I wanto assume this cant be Lisbon, Portugal but these days I cant be sure

    No, they absolutely meant Lisbon, Portugal.

    This might be a stupid question, but, erm... Why? Lisbon is, well, not exactly close to anything that's going on over there...

    Because they intend to *checks notes*

    "push NATO off a cliff into the sea"

    And Lisbon is basically the westernmost point of note on the Eurasian continent.

    I saw Putin spoke about stopping the 'tragedy of the Ukraine war' that he started. Seems Russia must be feeling the pain or perhaps more charitably they see an opportunity to negotiate a ceasefire that will let them keep the crimea while the west is indecisive. Still hardly the words of a man who believes his army will be making gains any time soon.

    I also saw coverage that Russia is offering realtivley large enlsitment bonuses and increased pay for people to sign up to for tank battalions with only a 6 month contract. 6 months says to me you either dont expect them to live to 7 or you plan to somehow not let them leave despite your promise. You dont pay someone to enlist, put them through boot camp and say goodbye six months later. Also a sign of desperation to increase retcrutiment.

    A Russian volunteer deliveryman decided it would be a sensible move to post pictures of his resupply mission to a Russian-held gas station near Kreminna, as well as several other positions. The following day, Ukraine bombed those positions, causing significant loss of manpower and equipment. It looks like Ukraine is also mounting further counter-attacks to reclaim the territory lost in Russia's limited advance on Kreminna a few months ago, with Leopard tanks engaging Russian positions outside Syn'kivka.

    I dont doubt this story or something similiar to it is true and happening all the time. Crazy to realize how addicted/reliant we are on phones and social media etc that we really all have become opperational security nightmares. Not just in war but in life in general probably. Not to go down a crazy cosnpiracy rant about data tracking but makes you think. With your life on the line you still might think sharing a selfie of your mission is just a fun idea.

    As long as the mobilization edict is in effect, no one* is allowed to break their contract with the MoD, and expired contracts are automatically renewed. Mobilized troops whose relatives are asking for additional mobilization so their loved ones can be rotated off the frontline are told that they're there till the end.

    *except the convicts in the penal battalions who get to go go home after their 6 months to rob, kill and rape in their communities to their heart's content as newly-minted "war heroes" *

    I have not seen any official statements from the UAF listing liberated settlements on the L Bank. The one video everyone was posting turned out to be old from last years' ops in Right-Bank Kherson oblast'.

    Zelensky stated allies will provide warships to Ukrainian navy to escort grain ships in Western Black Sea. This strikes me as a questionably good idea.
  4. In Topic: Whats making you happy right now

    19 November 2023 - 07:27 PM

    I believe I've reached my breaking point in being over-stressed and obsessed about the war.
    That point where people stop feeling guilty about having a life while incredibly horrific shit is happening elsewhere.
    Finally forced myself to make it to the pool, and then weighed myself and realized I need to start paying more attention to myself-including drastically improving sleep hygiene

    Think it may have something to do with my mom and grandfather being on vacation this week, so I don't have to be exposed to her near-breakdown state on a permanent basis, but I generally feel like some tumbler in my brain finally flicked, and I can just de-emphasize the things I've been basically obsessed with for the past 2 years.

    It feels odd. But also good. Need to turn this impulse into something positive.
  5. In Topic: Do you have debt?

    19 November 2023 - 07:20 PM

    I have one mortgage to my name, and a significantly larger one I share with my parents on a new house we bought as a retirement option for them.

    My own place I'm renting out, and it (largely) pays for itself. Was making small profit off it before the lockdowns, but when my last tenants gave me notice at the time when I couldn't even show the place in person due to quarantine restrictions, so I had to lower the rent to try to entice someone there. Could probably get into profits again, if I tried getting someone new there, but I honestly don't want the headache of advertising and all that crap again.

    The big mortgage we split 3-way, so it's generally manageable. Plus I get to live there in the summer largely on my own, so would be pretty silly of me to complain. I do hate the interest rate we got on it, but our closing was at just about the worst time. Thankfully i was able to renew my own for a fixed 5 year term right before the war, and before the rates started spiking.

    So to answer the immediate question, I have loads of debt, but except for when I open the banking app, I tend to forget it exists, so it doesn't really affect my day-to-day life.

    I hope you won't mind mate, but I copied and posted that "poem" thing you posted on the West Vs Russian interest thread.. You know, the one that starts off about how pathetic Europe is or has become.. Liked it so much that I had to post it. Keep up the good work on reporting about anything new.. Peace out to you friend..
