Really? I love hot showers. Maybe that is why my skin is acting up. It also explains why it happens in my face/head area since that's where the water first makes contact.

edit: Also, we got a new water boiler installed last month. The water is much hotter now. Talk about a convenient explanation..

Yes the dermatologist said it was a standard practice and advice 5 minutes lukewarm water gentle Cetaphil cleanser pat dry

Maybe this skin rash of mine is all weather or seasonal related. Last time it happened around the same time of year February.

I got FF XII for switch. Back in the day I paid it no mind because people were hating on it. But I think it's pretty cool. I like the battle system. I like that there is no battle screen. It's respectful of my patience.

Also bunny girl kicks ass.

This game is fantastic. I get to give rules to every character and they will do just as I tell them. I don't have to do anything. :D

And the bit everybody ignores and then complains about - YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE THEM ORDERS IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO!!

Haters are just FFX fans, complete idiots, morons, they wouldn't know a good FF if it was called 7.

Could it be time to get an Xbox 360? I am eyeing this one:
https://www.mercari.com/us/item/m97882555733/

After applying the balance I got by selling a GBC I can get it for 38.88 after tax and shipping. I should totally go for it.
edit: I went for it. This is actually happening!

I don't know how to mod a 360. (and I'd need to buy a DVD writer) But thanks for pointing out that the option is there at least. Maybe I should learn how to do it cause buying games is starting to feel pretty sad. It gets old wasting money on one trash game after another, or receiving a copy that's covered in pizza stains or something.

Just found out ff12 was made by the same dudes involved in Vagrant Story. No wonder I like it. The character models also kind of remind me of that game. Seems like they had a tough time during development (staff leaving in the middle of production/staff being changes/stupid suits meddling in production.) Impressive that despite all that it's still a great game. It doesn't even feel like an old game to me as I'm playing it on Switch. Usually in Final Fantasy games I play just to get to the story but this game is actually fun to play for me. Any story is just a bonus. Maybe it was a good thing the regular Final Fantasy staff got switched out. Room for fresh ideas and less pretty boys.

So this Vaan kid And Penelo were not supposed to be in the game I hear, but some higher-ups thought the game would sell better with some young kid in the lead....??? Why. The original lead (Basch) sounds far more interesting. A rugged dishonored knight trying to restore what he had failed to protect or something.Image

Now the lead is just some random street urchin who has no real motives to restore the old crown. I don't hate Vaan though. He's actually not annoying, just pointless. Penelo is even more pointless but she's okay too she stays out of the way well enough and she's a good white mage. I need them white mages.

I am watching a youtube video that says you need an RGH Xbox 360 which can be found on ebay.

Strangely the vid didn't explain what RGH actually means just that you need an RGH console. But from what I was able to gather, turning a console into an RGH console means installing a circuit board to overwrite the firmware's copy protection.

That doesn't sound easy at all! :p
Unless you follow the video and just buy one instead of doing it yourself.
Would I though? I could, we'll see. I already bought a console but that doesn't really matter. It was still worth it to get the console just for the 2 controllers that came with it.

Took Isabellla shoe shopping. She's a size 4G. Bought her some cool converse.

But I treat myself too! I got new shoes, we're the coolest dad and daughter on the block. I'm a size 7.

Truth be told I've been browsing Vita listings on eBay. Saw one at a decent price so I bought it.

This will be the third OLED model I own. The previous two had creaky L buttons, I assume this one also will. But after everything I've been up to recently with taking apart and fixing GBC, DS Lite, 2DS (which also had shoulder button issues, which I did fix eventually!) and having surprising good luck with all that, now is the time to see if I can solve this about the Vita. It theoretically ought to be possible based on what I remember because the creaking only happened when the back plate was on. Fixing it may involve cutting, sanding, or mutilating the back plate in some way. Worst case I can always sell it again, best case I have a glorious fixed vita and can use it to enjoy the one or two good games the system has. :p

The oled screen was tempting for be for emulation but I can't be bothered. Is the screen pretty?

The screen is very vibrant. But many Vita games had kind of a sterile look to them imho because the screen resolution is so high. (Although Switch has an even higher one) (That's why it's important to have a good art style)
Dunno if you've ever owned a PSP, but the 3k model is very vibrant too. I am still impressed by it every now and then.
Most PSP games were made before the 3k model was introduced, so the devs of certain games might not have intended them to have as much color saturation as they do on the 3k. But I enjoy seeing that explosion of color.

    Blackscar, in China the virus hit a couple of months earlier… Normal that more people have recovered by now.

    Plus it was never a real threat to healthy people and the mortality rate is below 1%. Wait, don’t jump down my throat straight away, let’s see this thing out then we’ll look at the stats and agree I was right from day 1.

    Our local newspaper posted an article saying NHS workers get priority at supermarkets now. So I commented: What about other key workers too? Truck drivers spend all week away keeping shelves stocked then have to queue on their only day off. My comment is gathering likes faster than a girl taking her top off, it can’t go unnoticed. I might actually make a difference for once here.

    They will, the local manager will read the article and my comment will be up at the top somewhere because of the likes. I’ve boycotted my local Sainsbury’s local store because they let 1 person in at a time. But we all use the same baskets and touch the same stuff. Morons the lot of them.

    Death rate is dependent on how we act. If hospitals can coap with the amount of people and if we don’t go infect old people and cancer patients just for fun, the death rate could very well be 1 percent and it would be great if that happened.

    (Saturday, Mar 28. 2020 18:46)
    If too many people get sick at once or we start kissing cancer patients the death rate could be around 10 percent though. It’s not a fixed number. We’re lucky it’s a pussy virus otherwise we would be fucked pretty badly from how retarded our countries handled this.

    I made a formula to calculate the price of my paintings. I also wanted to know the formula to know how big I have to make a painting to make a certain determined amount of money. I used all of my brain, but I could just not figure it out. Now I used an online math tool and I’m not surprised I could not figure it out. It’s way past high school math but I have the answer anyway! Thanks internet!

    The mortality rate is not below 1%. That is unsupported by current data. The Covid tracker says 28,967 fatal cases out of 629,627 confirmed cases. That’s 4.6%. To get under 1% you would have to have 2.3 million more unconfirmed cases that were all non-fatal. Unlikely.
