Project Retirement, ep 5

By Q-Bert - Posted on 24 February 2021

The one where I don't wreck a boat.

During Christmas time in Arizona, 2019, my wife and I decided to learn to sail.

Back in Ottawa, we applied for a course with Advantage Boating: Basic Cruising. We applied in March and it was to start in June and we couldn't wait. Less than 2 weeks later, the province shut down because of COVID. I tried to reach Advantage Boating and got no response at the time. As far as I could tell, our course was cancelled and our money was gone.

The one where I stand on others' shoulders.

The problem with having a project of this "magnitude" is to evaluate risk. You have to know what you know and you have to know what you don't know. If you don't know what you don't know, you are in trouble...

The one where I admit to lying.

In the previous episode, I've listed a huge-mongous amount of skills I will have to gain inside a short amount of time. At first blush, it may seem impossible (probably at second blush too...)

I've been lying...

... well, by omission. Read more

New trailer from Second Extinction about the Thumper

If you’re unfamiliar with Second Extinction, here’s a handy list of features.

  • Intense Three-player Co-op — Earth is overrun by mutated dinosaurs! Team up with up to two other resistance fighters to take it back in short but intense combat operations.
  • Battle Mutated Monstrosities — These dinos are nothing like the ones in your history books! From electric raptors to behemoth T-Rexes that tower over the horizon, these deadly creatures have evolved into the ultimate killing machines.
  • Experience Spectacular Action — Combine your fireteam’s unique weapons and abilities for explosive results against overwhelming opposition in challenging set piece engagements.
  • Take Part in a Joint Effort — Your actions, together with the rest of the community, will shape the course of the war against the dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs! Co-op! Dinosaurs! And, umm, dinosaurs?

HoC Random Zero of the Day, Take 2 - 01132021

Yeah. I hate him.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Satellite. 32 and 0. Zero deaths across the entire match.

While not as impressive or rare as Jehreg's Zero it still deserves our kudos.

So, yeah, kudos I guess.

We would have thought this impossible until we saw this done

Any experienced Call of Duty would take a look at Jehreg's score and say "Oh, he joined late."

This is NOT the case. There are five witnesses to the fact that Jehreg was there for the entire game. All of it. The entire game. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Nuketown. And he got no points. Zero.

And, yes, he scored a perfect zero. Which you would think would be impossible. We certainly thought it was impossible. Until we saw him do it!.

This may not have been an achievement, but it should have been. Kudos, Jehreg, kudos.

The one where we figure out how deep the hole goes.

Deciding to become a competent skipper inside of 3 years, from scratch, in such a way as to not kill yourself... is challenging.

A captain on a small boat is the ultimate jack-of-all-trades; when something breaks, you typically have to MacGyver yourself back to port (though while you can stock a huge amount of matchsticks and gum wrappers, most times you are better served with extra sails and rope...) Read more
