Two weeks later and my cast is off.

More pain today than yesterday, but I should be able to do some writing soon.

Hurray.... Good for you... maybe we will see more of of your Black Lagoon, or the Ranma/Gate cross, or the Love Hina Art story, or something else interesting as your way of celebrating.

'Subtle' indeed. :D

Ok, I admit it, I like some of his stuff... if he thinks he is going to be in a mood to write (and able to in his condition), I'm willing to drop 'hints' as to which I would like to see...

So in no way as that post meant as insult or sarcasm.

Also, this place can use more actual story content and commentary...

True, true.

...I don't think anybody said it was meant as an insult or sarcasm, though. Sorry if my own sarcasm was offensive.
 
I have been summoned to Jury Duty. Trial is expected to take 3-4 weeks. Still in the jury selection process. Have to go back on Tuesday to finish the first part of the jury selection. Next part, the defense and the prosecution get to ask us questions to see whether or not they want us on the jury.

Jury duty is not exciting but very boring, courts isn't like on tv or movies but rather dull (imagine watching government representative functions that is/was on pbs).
 
I've also found out that I only have 32.75 hours of work per week, which means that while my employer will pay me for three days, I am considered 'part-time' and am ineligible to be paid for my time by the court.

Bummer... I've had Jury duty two times in my life, but only ever needed to show for one of them. The trial I did get picked for at the time was over after two days, and was a assault case. I was the Jury Foreman...

Well I’m back home, leg got infected and I hot hospitalized that took two surgeries to clean out. After that I was in Rehab for 2 months trying to learn how to walk again.

the infection was bad, but thankfully it was easy to get cleaned out, also had to be on IV antibiotics for 2 months and looks like I will be going in for another surgery to get the hardware taken out as they don’t know if it colonized the metal or not, and they don’t want to take a chance of it popping back up in 6 months to a year from now.

Hope everything goes okay for you. Leg infections are no joke - I've had both legs infected in the last decade; dealing with them was no fun.

Good luck, amigo.

@rukia8492 I hope that you recover quickly.

Myself, I'm signed off for another two weeks and have some exercises that I need to do four times a day. I can get away with not wearing the support, which means I can wash it at some point this week, but the hand is still sore, and my fingers don't want to move as quickly or are painlessly as before.

So my latest idea (NGE smut) might be a little bit delayed.

I wish you a swifter and flawless recovery from now on. Same for @rukia8492 .

No more Jury Duty. Guy took a plea deal last minute.

Now I won't be called back for Jury Duty for a minimum of 1 calendar year.
Heh, I’m not allowed to do jury duty, my name was removed from the pool years ago as it’s a serious conflict of interest and safety concern.

Ugh. Anyone else get any fake blackmail e-mails? This year got me 2, both of them obviously fake, though the newest one started as worrying, and then went to "clearly fake" territory.

Pity there's no way to track these SoB's in RL, I'd be sorely tempted to pay them a visit and "explain" my displeasure.

I've gotten quite a few spam emails from the same @ address, and some that somehow have my email address. Wish I knew how to stop them. I just dump them into the Junk folder and list them as Phishing.

These two weren't from the same source, but the message was similar...which pretty much f***ed them up in making me take their threat as credible.

Seriously, when your blackmail e-mail mentions how they have full access to your computer and they'd like so and so amount of bitcoins in this BTC Wallet in this timeframe, they won't spread the "depraved" stuff I am supposedly into, it kind of ends up sounding...lame.

If you seriously had full access to my homesystem, if you'd like to make your blackmail credible, you could have made my system open a window with your threat message that cannot be closed. Or set it on a timer so it bricks my system when the time runs out.

So yeah, fake threat mail goes to garbage to be destroyed, and I'm left feeling irritated because I want to 100% track these braindead idiots down for a chat. A completely violence free "chat". :mad:

Makes me curious if these jokers are a bunch of brats who are feeling the burn for pocket money. The tone of the blackmail was juvenile enough IMO.

I had a scammer try those blackmail emails on me earlier this year. They claimed they had full control of my gmail account and had gleaned off all my porn activities from there and would publicize them if I didn't pay up. To prove their point they gave me the password on the account.

It was a correct password. Well, it was like 8 years ago. So, they must have gotten a hold of an ancient hash file or something. Never the less, it has been useless for a long time and was how I immediately was able to label it as a scam.

Not to mention I'm not stupid enough to ever associate anything to do with porn with my main account. If I were into that sort of thing I'd use an alt or throwaway account.

It did remind me to change any passwords that were similar or derivative to that one though. Apparently my rockstar account was similar enough some Russian piece of shit tried to use my account, but there wasn't anything in there to steal. I realized it when I logged into my account page and everything was in Russian.

I think a lot of these scams come from Russia. How much is endorsed by Putin, and how much money he gets from the endeavor I do not know. Hacking the world's systems and sewing distrust and chaos is the Main M.O of Russia for quite a while now.
 
So on Sunday I pulled a muscle in my back...while taking a shower of all things. Called into work sick on Monday and was off today. Because I don't want to use all my sick days at once, I'm going back to work tomorrow. Let's hope that it's a quiet day.
Plus, I'm out of vape juice and don't get paid until Thursday...joy!

This is where I'm obligated to point out that you're supposed to let the WALL support your shower "fun" partner...

Never the less, I hope everyone here who's ailing feels better soon. I can certainly empathize.
