Why yes, yes we did. :D

So, you needed a new mirror, huh? ;)

Every RPG progression ever:

At level 1 you can’t kill a rat. At level 50, Satan is your bitch.

These all look standard buckets. Why are they not stacked one into another? Drying? This way they definitely take A LOT of space. And this is... A LOT of buckets. :D

Oh well, perhaps today's Mother's day brings some traffic.

I remain in awe of your demand that everything is 100%.

New user to this forum, but I just wanted to give my thanks for j'ordos and others who have made these X-Com Apocalypse modding tools available.  It is such a great asset to breathe life into a game I still enjoy after over a decade of on and off play.   Posted Image

Personally, I'd rather some steamed Lobsterman. Goes great with butter.
Oh wait, wrong X-com game.

While Lobster Men aren't entirely robotic, they have a lot of synthetic components. Eating them might not be the best of ideas.

To bring on the full gamut in Zombie trust for the final cut! ;)

Things are looking up already with this starting lineup. No shortage of options there and I imagine you'll even have some preset mixes to go when the time comes.

Speaking of which, it's just a little over a week to :wub: day so keep it up!

Yeah, because why not work extra just before a huge push incoming... 🧚‍♀️ You are a machine.

I do feel the time loss life feature, 's been happening for a decade now, dammit. Luckily my comp is being repaired so I am reminded how long a week actually is. 😁

Yeah, Zombie, I've heard about the, shall we say, logistics issues that are hampering things on your side of the pond.

Can't say we're not struggling with containment problems of our own, what with medical personnel pushed to their limits, rushed vaccination of risk groups, ambulances lining up at hospital entrances waiting to be allowed in, running out of room for both the ailing and those already lost, and to top it all off, somehow dealing with the recently surfaced new strains of the thing making the rounds all over the globe.

Big pharma is already talking about the development of "boosters" to properly tackle the latest variants, so, overall, I can absolutely agree it's not a pretty picture, to put it mildly, no matter where we happen to be.

I guess ultimately there's only so much we can do on a personal level really, being responsible in our behaviour, to remain safe and ensure the safety of others to an extent, with or without governmental intervention. If we can do that we'll at least have contributed to the solution instead of adding to the problem.

Just do your bit, keep your wits about you and take care, Zombie.

No cold snap can capture Zombie's greenhouse - snow and ice will slide real nice and no cause shall there be to even grouse. Posted Image

Marketing aside, it's great to see it in such good shape still. It shows how good of a job you actually did overall.

Even without any pics to show for it (for the obvious reason stated) you shone a light all the same on the overall issue of lighting and even paying for an electrician to deal with some of it won't moot the long term benefits in terms of costs.

I see you're still flexing those caulking skills to good effect too, successfully countering the way of the exploding fists! Posted Image

Business-wise, I can only hope you don't stay boxed in overmuch, as the "bug" spreading hasn't really abated and repeated lockdowns - over on this end at least - are expected to easily last for well over another month.

To take a little stroll back:

So yeah, Zombie, the yo-yo was at some point in the 90's sort of cool I suppose but probably not the plainer variety MicroProse went for.

It would be leaps and bounds more fashionable and with-the-times to be carrying, say, a Game Boy then. Though that spoke to status as well of course.

In any case, you can always just put on one of those Maxell buttons to become instantly Super! Posted Image

That's why they call a long haul delivery, Zombie. ;)

That must have been one of the longest waits for something to land on your doorstep, but it was worth it for the novelty item you ended up getting. A yo-yo of all things!

I'm thinking they figured - how about seeding brand placement among kids? The sooner you get them into the fold the better. :P
