Picked up the Noble Armada game on Steam over the weekend.
It's one of the least intuitive games I have ever played.
It's an RTS where giving your units orders pauses the game.
An RTS where you can control a maximum of 4 units, and you can't group them - each unit gets its orders individually.
An RTS where you click-and-drag to set headings for your ships and then click-and-drag to set the units' speed.
On the plus side, the opposition ALSO caps at 4 units.

I hate that language adds slurs faster than content filters (and customer service staff) can keep up with.
'Sperg' is my new boogeyman. Twitter Support especially doesn't seem to recognize it as a slur.
Sorry for the downtime folks! I'm on leave and busy with family stuff. @blinks stepped up and solved it. And since he's amazing, he wrote a post-mortem: https://gist.github.com/blinks/dabac9fb850ad00941f9a50b882a0e38

This has knocked me off my stride this afternoon.
Lone Wolf & Cub is a series I came to later than many - and I got there from the films before I knew there was a Manga.
This is a significant loss to the manga art.
The car is officially dying. We have 232k miles on it, so we knew this was coming. But it needs $3k in repairs in the near future (oil pump and front suspension work).
Much as I'd love to just fix it, we're at the point where every week something else will need fixing. Cheaper to just suck it up and get a new car.
We love this car, and will miss it greatly.
Today is Transfer Day. There are eleven Weber Genesis grills on the truck inbound to my office. We need to unload them (without a dock) and then stack them (without a forklift) so we have room for them.
I say, "We," but what I really mean is "Me, unless Mariano gets back soon." Because the only sales rep in the building is already complaining about his back.
