My work is adopting a VPN client that can't be minimized to try, only to taskbar. I can't imagine any of these Very Technologically Literate bankers will have trouble understanding the difference, and in the very unlikely event they do, they'll be completely reasonable of the fact that they just accidentally killed their work session and be Very Respectful to the tech assigned to help them
They pushed out a change to the VPN software that everybody uses to connect when working remotely, and this probably changes the process I need to follow when I image and configure a new machine.
However I have not been told of any changes, so there's a good chance any machine I make and released today will come back to me, unusable.
@junebug I take Metal Gear Solid and make a tactical mech RPG out of it. Build your own squad of metal gears and take out enemy ones.
My own answers to the above poll
"Grab a bite" specifically conjures to mind a hamburger, imo.
"Chow" makes me think of basically dog food, but "Chow down" does nothing.
"Snack" reminds me of those crackers and cheese dip prepackaged things that you break one off and throw into a lunchbox.
I love this game's fake Internet
Having an emotion over my cat this morning
Boss is sick right now. Infection in his mouth means that when he was eating food, he was in pain.
We took him to the vet, they gave us painkillers and antiinflammatories and antibiotics. Boss, however, was refusing food left out for him, and he's not the kind of cat we can just squirt it down his throat.
However, this animal, who's known me for about nineteen months, who is now afraid of food dishes because of his infection, still trusts food given from me to him by hand, and it's the only way I can give him his medicine.
So even though it's only been a short time, the fact that he trusts me so makes me want to cry.
Elden Ring opinion, Melania specifically
I seen a lot of takes of people belittling souls bros for actually playing their hard game? Like, specifically Melania, who I've discovered is as hard as her reputation asserts.
But like, a lot of these takes are missing a crucial piece of the puzzle in that solving a Souls boss like her (And others, like Kalameet, Sir Alonne, Nameless King, etc), the real "prove you've mastered this game" bosses are actually a joy to pick apart and beat?
Like, I've always lived firmly in the camp that Souls games are puzzle games where the puzzles are combat. To me, a boss like Melania is the final exam.
If you're not coming to these games for that, that's fine! There's plenty of ways to mitigate her. There's no shame in using them, because Elden Ring is as much a story and exploration game is it is a combat game.
Beating her, for me, isn't a glory thing, the only person I'm trying to beat is myself. I want to be able to say "I managed to pick her apart and then played 3 minutes of perfect chess against her" not so I can post on twitter and get back pats; I want to do it for the same reason I say I beat The Witness, or Obra Dinn. The experience of doing so teaches me something, and the satisfaction of overcoming it will stick with me for a long while.
So yeah, it's fine not to like her, but I think calling her a Bad Boss fight because you disagree, personally, with the objective set out by her creation is a tad much.
Also, the people whose only response to criticism or difficulty talk of souls games is "git gud" continue to be ruining it for everyone else.
In short, I recommend Mother 3, but only if you can tolerate heavy themes around death, suicide, PTSD, and occasional stumbles in the realm of mental health, disability, and gender/sexuality.
