@stibbons @pelagikat Hahaha nice. I just looked up the real estate listing for our place from 2013, and man the big tree in the very back corner of our back yard and the trees in the neighbour's yard have grown an astonishing amount!

Haha wow, so I took this photo six years ago today. Compare and contrast! virtualwolf.org/media/posts/53 (Those are the same conifers in the pots, and they've had to have their tops trimmed several times so they didn't run into the eaves).

It was spooky ladies versus murder ladies tonight! Unfortunately the murder ladies are now two losses out of two games played. Partially my fault again, they require a lot more careful play than some of the other warbands, and I screwed up placing the objective tokens. Kristina had some very tricksy plays too though, which screwed me over at a couple of points!

Because the new brushes are so big and thick and soft compared to what I'm used to using (an EXTREMELY ratty old Games Workshop drybrush), you actually need to leave more paint on the brush and just really gently flick the end of the brush across the surface, and the softness and number of bristles does the rest.

I was having a bit of a struggle with my new drybrushes, you can't tell too much from my previous photos of Lady Harrow's Mournflight, but I couldn't get the drybrushing to come out properly all the time, it kept globbing and looking like crap. I decided to carefully watch Artis Opus' tutorial video and do some experimenting and, counterintuitively, it turns out I was actually taking TOO MUCH paint off the brush! Check out this lovely gradient I did tonight.

@ThermiteBeGiants @mikelynch I've been blessedly no longer Extremely Online since I stopped using Twitter and moved over here, so I have absolutely no idea what any of that is about.

Announcing Meme It So! It's a Star Trek The Next Generation Meme and GIF Generator, inspired by Frinkiac.

It has every line of dialogue spoken on STTNG tied to screencaptures. Which makes it good for looking up lines as well.


@mike @emmadavidson @stibbons @s0 Yeah little stuff like that makes sense, I don't really think of that as "home automation" per se. :)
