Waited 10 months for an appointment, finally got a letter through the post that it was at a time I couldn't make due to work.  Couldn't have been while I was off for two months, that would have been too easy...  After spending 3 days calling them I finally spoke to someone to rearrange it.  Was told someone was on holiday but they would fit me in around the time and dates I gave.  Got home today to a "you didn't turn up, guess you don't want an appointment so you're off the list" letter!  It's the 21st century, why are they still using post-it notes for phone messages rather than putting an e-mail address on the letter?!  Trying to phone again because that worked so well last time :mad:

Humans...

Yes, but humans invented e-mail as well as post-its!

Spoke to a friendly lady who had turned her computer off early so couldn't do anything, she said she would sort it in the morning and sounded competent.  I would be comforted but so did the person last time when I called to rearrange but it's a different place so definitely not the same person...  What's the betting the next thing I hear from them is another appointment during work hours, sent snail mail?  Would be more hopeful if I could make more than 1/6 of their appointment slots but alas, I cannot.  Would be funny if only it wasn't.

Eh... no.  suicidal_orange is hoping to become contented_orange, a well adjusted member of society capable of offering noisy more positive advice than he could muster earlier.

Decided to break Windows 7 out of the VM and give it a piece of an SSD--because I'm stuck in non-IOMMU territory atm.  My dumbass still can't master the art of time zones while dual booting.  :))

edit - aha, did some registry tomfoolery and switched Windows 7 to a strange (for an eastern US PC anyway) yet effective timezone. I've tried to run these windows based cloud applications with wine without much luck--pragmatism suits me anyway.

And I keep telling you I've been eating veggies for years - if they help I'd hate to see what I look like in a parallel universe where I remained a carnivore!

The friendly lady has had 46 hours to pass on details, no sign yet that she has.  Guess no-one's checked the answer machine on the other number either...  Wondering if I should just go visit one of the addresses and sit in the middle of a busy corridor until someone gives me a sensible answer :confused:

There are almonds in my granola but otherwise I am a little light on nuts, being as peanuts aren't.  Eat plenty of them...

In better news I spoke to someone on the answer machine number first try - another friendly lady (not the same one I spoke to last time) who sounds competent who's going to look into it and call me back probably tomorrow.  At least she put a deadline on it so I know if she's changed her mind (or lost the post-it...)

I pre-ordered a GameStop-exclusive controller earlier this month, set for store pick-up. Released the day after Thanksgiving, and waited a few days before calling. It's a GCN-style controller, and with Ultimate coming out these controllers keep going in and out stock.
The rep told me the order was never placed, so when I saw it in stock I placed a second order. Waited a few days again before calling; this time the rep said she could see both orders, but that they were both canceled as they were OOS. I was charged for one of them, and my account doesn't show anything was canceled, but the rep said their system shows both of mine were canceled and that the funds would be released.

The site didn't show any were available in any GS near me, but I called one anyway. They said they had it and I went to pick it up after work. A weird experience that went from what's bothering me to what's not bothering me. I've only ever ordered two things off GS, and I'll be sure to not go for GS-exclusive colors in the future.

Browsing GeekHack with Javascript off works very well, apart from one small thing: the ignored users aren't ignored. So I have to either enable JS or scroll through all the tp4's ****.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I ****ing hate Stuart Little. I know what you’re thinking, this is some kind of funny joke, but no. Stuart Little is a piece of ****. A damn rat got picked over actual children at an orphanage and he’s supposed to be a hero? And I can’t even tell you how many damn times I’ve seen a great parking space only to turn the corner and realise Stuart Little is already parked there in his stupid little ****ing convertible. He took my wife and the kids and my house and my job. I swear to ****ing god, I’m going to kill myself and take that goddamn rodent to hell with me. Stuart Little has ruined my family. Last summer, I approached the miserable mouse in the street, and asked him for his autograph, because my son is a huge fan. The ****ing rat gave me the autograph and told me to burn in hell. Later, when I gave my son the autograph he started crying and said he hated me. Turns out the mouse****er didnt write his autograph, no, he wrote “you’re a piece of ****, and i ****ed your mom”. I’m now divorced, and planning a huge class-action lawsuit against the white devil that ruined my life. Your time is almost over, Stuart. All the people you’ve wronged will rise against you.

My birth mother has been trying to contact me, idk how to feel about this or how to handle it.

I think its, at least, valuable to understand your heritage as much as possible provided the circumstance is OK. Its something you will think about the rest of your life and likely regret at some point should you choose not to know more. Many people don't get an opportunity to know their birth parent/s. 

I've read about a similar situation from the perspective of the mother who found her kid. Professional advice given to her was to take things very slowly, to mostly answer questions and only talk on the kids terms. Also, to have regular contact proving stability and reliability before meeting in person. Its really easy to just send a nice message, so its good to have your guard up when it comes to inviting another person into your life. I hope it is a good experience for you  :)

Do it. You are an adult now and can handle whatever. If nothing else, you might learn significant genetic or medical information.
The president also asked McGahn in the meeting why he had told the Special Counsel’s Office investigators that the President had told him to have the Special Counsel removed. McGahn responded that he had to, and that his conversations with the President were not protected by attorney–client privilege.
The President then asked, “What about these notes? Why do you take notes? Lawyers don’t take notes. I have never had a lawyer who took notes.” McGahn responded that he keeps notes because he is a “real lawyer” and explained that notes create a record and are not a bad thing. The President said, “I’ve had a lot of great lawyers, like Roy Cohn. He did not take notes.”

PS – if you don’t know who Roy Cohn was, Google him

DO NOT take advice from the internet about something as serious as this.. 

sncbraxsc2 and fohat may mean well, but they do not have the experience to deal with this.

At most, they each found 1 other lost relative, and by coincidence it turned out well.. that is not what you need.

Either get professional help, or at least read a book on the subject..

Just 'cos someone got published doesn't give them anymore insight into a specific situation.

I'm with fohat - if it goes well and she's nice great and if not you can easily offend her so she doesn't want to see you again and forget about it, you've only lost an hour of your life.  But get a list of family disease history first, that could come in handy.

We all hope it goes well, but it can also go very wrong..

Given how much life stress Turtle is already under, and his history in worldly escape via substances, it's best to be cautious.

There are possibilities for heartbreak, guilt, and exploitation. Do tread carefully.

At ~25 hours into Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty (have read books 1-5, currently reading Chapterhouse) I checked the going ebay rate for the original big box...

Damn, $75+ easy. Ok, new strategy...

It's probably time I join a vintage gaming forum for NTSC releases... Yikes.

Just got SSBU, but if they actually wind up adding Minecraft Steve and Sora I'm going to have to burn my copy. The game's fanbase is already full of enough autistic spergs it doesn't need those fandoms overlapping, please don't enhance that negative image Nintendo. :(
