speaking of needing patches, um
Spoiler:
in the first campaign when you control both delta 1 and holly to take out (I think the Eleventh Beta Tester?) things are very borked- I have no weapons until I switch but the guns I get after switching have no effect on the color cores.

even stranger is that this does not stop you from playing the mission as the AI fighter can still damage the cores just fine, and does so very quickly.
you can only win the mission by not playing the mission.  (insert wargames joke)

I didn't do an all-though test tho, so you might want to take a look at it yourself first.

And I managed to fix that mysterious crash that happens after winning the boss fight in "Wrath of a Stood-Up Bride"! Major kudos to SL1 for helping me find the issue!

General Discussion / New Year, New Dracula

Just got done watching the 2020 Dracula mini-series on Netflix. Definitely did not expect this level of quality from a Netflix series and would recommend. There's quite a lot of black humor, and I do quite like the modern characterization. I think it's an enjoyable watch for people who haven't read Dracula, but you'd certainly get some extra appreciation having read the original novel.

My only (known) experience with coronavirus is in the feline infectious form.  For the most part, it is an annoying but harmless but that tends to give cats the runs.  Unless finds an immunocompromised host, such as one that had a previously undiagnosed case of FIV.  In that case, it doesn't get fought off effectively by the immune system, it just sticks around in the lower GI tract doing what viruses do: making bad copies of itself.  Eventually one of those bad copies happens to be a version that can cross the epithelial lining in the peritoneum.  Once the peritonitis starts, there is no way to stop it.  It is currently always fatal.  After two weeks of feeding him via a feeding tube and watching this once lively and happy creature struggling to find any way to lay down that didn't hurt...  putting him down was one of the hardest things I've ever done.

George was only 4 or 5 years old.  We'd only had him for 2 of those years.  We were looking for a hard-luck case from the local animal shelter, an older cat since those so seldom get adopted.  He was a sweet, very very affectionate boy.  He must have had the FIV that made him vulnerable when we adopted him, and some how he gave a false negative when he was tested.

As far as I know, human coronavirus has no such tendencies to mutate into something lethal that can cross into the peritoneum.  I've done a superficial search of the online literature, and I haven't found anything yet.  Feline coronavirus and human corona virus are not the same thing, they just have a lot in common.  For the most part, I expect it is just going to give people upset bowels until their immune systems fight it off.

Hecate is better than Orion, that's why.
Me right now:
Hidden Text: Show

For a long time I followed the wrong idea that the Orion was better somehow (even though I never really liked it) just because of beams and stuff like that. All that was simply because my simple mind could not grasp the true beauty of the Hecates design that puts the Orion to shame so badly. But then I realized how every single poly was perfect (well, for a retail model atleast), and so I found a way to happyness.
