  • Day 17: I put potatoes back on the menu in an attempt at raking in cash. Got a 59x combo perfect day. Hell yes.
  • Day 18: Purchased the fried chicken, immediately upgraded it because yeah. I got my salad orders confused near the end of lunchtime and ended up giving someone cheese that they didn't want... but all the chicken turned out fine!
  • Day 19: Crazy Dave bets that I can't make it through the day without any "bad orders". Welp, guess I'm serving corndogs today... and upgrading the toilet...
  • THE NEW TOILET MAKES A DIFFERENT NOISE THIS IS EXTREMELY DISCONCERTING
  • but I got a x63 combo perfect day anyway
  • oh my goodness the music the curtains the confetti
  • I just got my first star that's what all this fuss is about
  • I HAVE WALLS NOW
  • CRAZY DAVE I AM NOT CONVINCED YOU PAID OUT
  • Day 20: oh dear 62% baseline buzz let's get those ice creams out
  • welp I only fucked up one of those 72 orders when I hit the 1 key again instead of Q for ice cubes (same finger, dammit)
  • (also the I -> Q remapping is the only one I have allowed myself so far because come on ice cube is so much funnier slash convenient)
  • okay it looks like most of the things I need to do to earn my second star are pretty straightforward it is mostly just going to be a waiting game again that's fine by me
  • Day 21: aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh
  • I am not used to having to reach to the 5 key and because I put fried chicken back on the menu in order to maximise profits a cavalcade formed during lunchtime and I done goofed
  • and then I also goofed during the 81% buzz at dinner time when I overshot the cup size urgh
  • Day 22: I really should have upgraded the salad by now but there's never been a good time. Now would be a particularly atrocious moment to choose.
  • SO I WENT AHEAD AND DID IT ANYWAY
  • x76 COMBO PERFECT DAY SO WORTH IT
  • Day 23: ooooooh looks like I'm investing in a takeaway service
  • aw man another catering event has opened up and I don't have the stuff for this one either
  • ...I could just, like, you know, buy some fries...
  • Crazy Dave wants to make a bet about soup. I do not soup.
  • that panicked yelp when I overshot the cup size though
  • Day 24: Safety inspection on a rainy day? This sounds like a job for... ice cream!
  • ...and, uh, upgraded rat catching...
  • the ingredients keys pressed for the non-trivial thousand island salad spell BOG and this is both incredibly useful and funny
  • x60 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 25: oh boy a new cate- nope I don't have beer
  • Ah, fuck it, I need to get a new bit of a equipment as part of the two star requirements - let's get burgers on the menu!
  • (and an instant upgrade why not)
  • hmph I never screw up the new thing it's always the slowdown causing fluster and mistakes with the soda machine
  • I refuse to not serve drinks? That just seems wrong? Mind you, if I need beer for catering...

On the previous Solid Mechanics problem sheet, there was an optional bonus question concerning the very nasty "proof" of the incredibly useful Baker-Ericksen inequalities (given an unproven but slightly easier to justify identity). It was not a simple task. The lecturer had said, as if to highlight the optional nature of the exercise, that there would be "prizes" on offer to those who turned in the best solutions (one for each class, I believe, since two were handed out).

I was not paying attention during that lecture. I was zoned out doing another problem sheet for my triple deadline hell day. I just did the thing. It took a while. An entire evening, in fact, that it wasn't necessarily sane to have spent as I did. And even then, I was 90% sure one of my key steps was complete bullshit, but I did at least point that out.

RE: Post making contest
This is update #268.
  • Day 26: I am just going to jump straight back into things and pretend I can remember exactly what was going on. Nothing bad can come of this.
  • apparently it is possible to proceed to the serving stage with an uncooked burger so when I accidentally selected one that was being grilled, not the one that had just finished, I may have made a noise
  • also sodas continue to be thoroughly irksome so guess what's coming off the menu for the first time ever
  • Day 27: because it would feel wrong not to serve any drink whatsoever, I've shelled out for beer. This will go swimmingly.
  • 11 people ordered beer during the lunchtime rush hour. The hour between 12pm and 1pm. Huh.
  • (and yeah I fucked up one of them had a bit of an overspill going on whoospie)
  • the new catering event is pretzels (yep), corndogs (yep) and... lasagne? uh
  • am I brave enough to do the drinks catering event now I have had the beer for one day
  • NAILED IT (+$675 dollars for 27/27 perfect orders)
  • Day 28: the concept of the daily special terrifies me but I invested in it anyway with my beer money and so yep making beer the first daily special
  • I am slowly turning into a Wetherspoons and somehow that's okay
  • x60 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 29: x68 COMBO PERFECT DAY BOO-YA (note to self: salads are a great dish of the day)
  • Day 30: Crazy Dave wants me to get a x20 perfect combo with sodas and salads on my menu... or, in other words, do what I did pretty much every day for the first 25 days. Bingo.
  • x63 COMBO PERFECT DAY SUCK IT CRAZY DAVE
  • Day 31: I need to complete another catering challenge in the next couple of days, so it's time for PSCRPSCRPSCR
  • (that's the lasagne sound)
  • (because it's the sequence of presses you need for the basic recipe)
  • (and Nilesy used to say it out loud)
  • dear lord that is a deceptively difficult sequence of key presses to nail so uh I am not doing that catering event until I've had some more practice methinks
  • Day 32: ONLY ONE AVERAGE ORDER TODAY I'M IMPROVING
  • except the lasagne now has menu rot so welp
  • Day 33: Crazy Dave reckons I can't manage a x22 perfect combo just straight up no constraints re: food on menu or anything UH HUH UH HUH
  • x70 COMBO PERFECT DAY IN YOUR FACE CRAZY DAVE
  • (this is despite me having fed my Neko Atsume cats during the in-game afternoon; that was a fun beer pull...)
  • Day 34: I have an inspection due so I daren't reintroduce the lasagne just yet...
  • okay so when you occasionally have to "thumbs up" the instragram-esque photos your customers have taken in order to get bonus buzz, it makes them by combining a random pic of something on your menu with one of a set of captions and so today I liked two pics of beer tankards captioned "A++ would eat again"
  • x63 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 35: okay fine lasagne give me your worst
  • x66 COMBO PERFECT DAY THAT WAS FUNDAMENTALLY NOT YOUR "WORST"
  • Day 36: have I mentioned how amazing the spam mail in this game is yet
  • Dennis and Leo have the best passive-agressive thing going on oh my goodness
  • the fifth catering event is nachos and ice cream, the former of which I do not possess
  • but I feel ready to tackle the one that features lasagne so here goes
  • "I put out a survey for what kind of foods people wanted for our next Employee Appreciation Party, and the results are all over the place. So I'm mixing it up and giving them what they didn't ask for! It'll be great!" WELL THAT EXPLAINS WHY I'M SERVING CORNDOGS, PRETZELS AND LASAGNE AT THE SAME TIME
  • oh my goodness that was *intense*
  • but I served 36 people and made $900 holler holler serve lasagne get dollar
  • I thought I could handle making burgers the daily special. I had forgotten how you can serve uncooked meat if you hit the wrong number key goddammit
  • Day 37: the daily fortune I got in my spam this morning said that I should avoid eagles today - hell no...
  • WHAT THE FUCK NACHOS HOW ARE YOU SO COMPLICATED
  • NONE OF YOUR KEY BINDINGS MAKE SENSE
  • well I mean pizza has two pages of ingredients too but at least they're labelled fairly nicely so guess I'm forking out for this instead
  • uh I said that but it turns out I had not fully internalised the fact that sausage was M (for, um, meat, presumably?) but fortunately the fella who wanted sausage on his pizza came in at 11am so I literally had the time to sit there and figure it out
  • thus I got a x72 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 38: Crazy Dave wants to bet me $300 that I can't make more than $500 today (excluding tips) - this presumably also excludes the money I'm gonna make when I win this bet...
  • days where I've got both beer and fried chicken on the menu are fun because after a while I start trying to serve beer with the P key
  • beer key presses: hold down, then enter
  • fried chicken key presses: hold down, then P, then enter
  • SEE MY PROBLEM?
  • anyway x71 COMBO PERFECT DAY

This is update #269.
  • so uh I was going to stop but I JUST GOT MY SECOND STAR SO NOPE STOPPING IS NOT HAPPENING
  • oh my goodness me look at my new beautiful restaurant
  • WE HAVE BREAD ROLLS NOW
  • AND SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS
  • THIS IS AMAZING
  • goodbye pretzels and corndogs you will not be missed
  • (worst $700 I've spent so far? well no the baked potato sure was a thing)
  • Day 39: how do I deal with having 71% base buzz today
  • (by having beer on the menu and reducing it to 68% I guess)
  • (also purchasing fancier menus that might help)
  • x86 COMBO PERFECT DAY MY POOR FINGERS
  • I HAD 88% BUZZ COME THE EVENING
  • Day 40: Crazy Dave wants me to get a x20 combo with beer on my active menu. I did more than four times that yesterday. This'll be a cinch.
  • (he says, upgrading the ice cream and promptly freaking out at things like "all toppings except nuts and strawberry sauce" WOULD IT NOT HAVE BEEN QUICKER TO TELL ME THE FOUR TOPPINGS YOU ACTUALLY WANT)
  • (it'll still be quicker than fried chicken though so I'll just have to tough it out)
  • excEPT I FORGOT TO ACCEPT THE BET AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH
  • (and, uh, predictably enough proceeded to fuck up the first new ice cream order welp)
  • Day 41: so I would appear to have been signed up to Cook4Luv, "a program that partners up fantastic cooks with salivating diners"
  • "You have chosen CATEGORY: CHEF LOOKING FOR LOVE, so you will receive emails from people looking for delicious dishes and romance!" uh
  • that is the opposite way round to how this would have gone down irl just saying
  • literally the only say I get in this is whether or not I want to date men xor women so uh
  • (I can remember Nilesy getting a bit fed up with this too but I do believe it can be turned off and it only nets you bonus competition tickets so whatever)
  • THE ICE CREAM UPGRADE WAS A MISTAKE
  • Day 42: the new catering event is burgers and lasagne urgh
  • ...so I have been propositioned by a chap named Mike who is a fan of burgers, a real burger aficionado, a proper burger devotee, totally addicted to burgers, absolutely 100% head-over-heels about hamburgers, cheeseburgers, steak burgers and veggie burgers. And, uh, presumably also about me. Eventually.
  • ...yeah okay I guess I do need to practice burgers for catering after all
  • now that pretzels are deemed too far below me to serve in such a classy establishment as mine I don't really have a good dessert option for when I don't want to have ice cream on the menu
  • oh yeah the speciality foods list is a thing

  • Day 26: I am just going to jump straight back into things and pretend I can remember exactly what was going on. Nothing bad can come of this.
  • apparently it is possible to proceed to the serving stage with an uncooked burger so when I accidentally selected one that was being grilled, not the one that had just finished, I may have made a noise
  • also sodas continue to be thoroughly irksome so guess what's coming off the menu for the first time ever
  • Day 27: because it would feel wrong not to serve any drink whatsoever, I've shelled out for beer. This will go swimmingly.
  • 11 people ordered beer during the lunchtime rush hour. The hour between 12pm and 1pm. Huh.
  • (and yeah I fucked up one of them had a bit of an overspill going on whoospie)
  • the new catering event is pretzels (yep), corndogs (yep) and... lasagne? uh
  • am I brave enough to do the drinks catering event now I have had the beer for one day
  • NAILED IT (+$675 dollars for 27/27 perfect orders)
  • Day 28: the concept of the daily special terrifies me but I invested in it anyway with my beer money and so yep making beer the first daily special
  • I am slowly turning into a Wetherspoons and somehow that's okay
  • x60 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 29: x68 COMBO PERFECT DAY BOO-YA (note to self: salads are a great dish of the day)
  • Day 30: Crazy Dave wants me to get a x20 perfect combo with sodas and salads on my menu... or, in other words, do what I did pretty much every day for the first 25 days. Bingo.
  • x63 COMBO PERFECT DAY SUCK IT CRAZY DAVE
  • Day 31: I need to complete another catering challenge in the next couple of days, so it's time for PSCRPSCRPSCR
  • (that's the lasagne sound)
  • (because it's the sequence of presses you need for the basic recipe)
  • (and Nilesy used to say it out loud)
  • dear lord that is a deceptively difficult sequence of key presses to nail so uh I am not doing that catering event until I've had some more practice methinks
  • Day 32: ONLY ONE AVERAGE ORDER TODAY I'M IMPROVING
  • except the lasagne now has menu rot so welp
  • Day 33: Crazy Dave reckons I can't manage a x22 perfect combo just straight up no constraints re: food on menu or anything UH HUH UH HUH
  • x70 COMBO PERFECT DAY IN YOUR FACE CRAZY DAVE
  • (this is despite me having fed my Neko Atsume cats during the in-game afternoon; that was a fun beer pull...)
  • Day 34: I have an inspection due so I daren't reintroduce the lasagne just yet...
  • okay so when you occasionally have to "thumbs up" the instragram-esque photos your customers have taken in order to get bonus buzz, it makes them by combining a random pic of something on your menu with one of a set of captions and so today I liked two pics of beer tankards captioned "A++ would eat again"
  • x63 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 35: okay fine lasagne give me your worst
  • x66 COMBO PERFECT DAY THAT WAS FUNDAMENTALLY NOT YOUR "WORST"
  • Day 36: have I mentioned how amazing the spam mail in this game is yet
  • Dennis and Leo have the best passive-agressive thing going on oh my goodness
  • the fifth catering event is nachos and ice cream, the former of which I do not possess
  • but I feel ready to tackle the one that features lasagne so here goes
  • "I put out a survey for what kind of foods people wanted for our next Employee Appreciation Party, and the results are all over the place. So I'm mixing it up and giving them what they didn't ask for! It'll be great!" WELL THAT EXPLAINS WHY I'M SERVING CORNDOGS, PRETZELS AND LASAGNE AT THE SAME TIME
  • oh my goodness that was *intense*
  • but I served 36 people and made $900 holler holler serve lasagne get dollar
  • I thought I could handle making burgers the daily special. I had forgotten how you can serve uncooked meat if you hit the wrong number key goddammit
  • Day 37: the daily fortune I got in my spam this morning said that I should avoid eagles today - hell no...
  • WHAT THE FUCK NACHOS HOW ARE YOU SO COMPLICATED
  • NONE OF YOUR KEY BINDINGS MAKE SENSE
  • well I mean pizza has two pages of ingredients too but at least they're labelled fairly nicely so guess I'm forking out for this instead
  • uh I said that but it turns out I had not fully internalised the fact that sausage was M (for, um, meat, presumably?) but fortunately the fella who wanted sausage on his pizza came in at 11am so I literally had the time to sit there and figure it out
  • thus I got a x72 COMBO PERFECT DAY
  • Day 38: Crazy Dave wants to bet me $300 that I can't make more than $500 today (excluding tips) - this presumably also excludes the money I'm gonna make when I win this bet...
  • days where I've got both beer and fried chicken on the menu are fun because after a while I start trying to serve beer with the P key
  • beer key presses: hold down, then enter
  • fried chicken key presses: hold down, then P, then enter
  • SEE MY PROBLEM?
  • anyway x71 COMBO PERFECT DAY

RE: Post making contest
This is update #270.

Ix was taking a D&D character test that was frustrating them. They asked for my opinion on an obtusely worded question, and so I decided to see what the questionnaire was like for myself...

[8:15 PM] Sruixan: I mean it is immediately asking me to rate my own appearance compared to others in my social circle
[8:16 PM] Sruixan: which is just a tinsy bit urgh
[8:16 PM] Ixcaliber: the above question i disagree with because i don't think the countryside is a nice place to visit and i wouldn't want to live there
[8:16 PM] Ixcaliber: yeah
[8:16 PM] Ixcaliber: thats probably like where it'll determine if you're an elf or something
[8:17 PM] Sruixan: I am attractive for a period of about twenty minutes that occurs about three hours after every shower
[8:17 PM] Sruixan: i.e. the brief window of time in which my hair actually will behave
[8:17 PM] Ixcaliber: they neglected to include that option
[8:17 PM] Sruixan: such an oversight
[8:18 PM] Ixcaliber: ikr
[8:19 PM] Sruixan: how am I meant to answer a question about my ability to sprint
[8:20 PM] Sruixan: and in particular compare it to the speeds people I know are capable of
[8:20 PM] Ixcaliber: there are some obtuse questions
[8:20 PM] Sruixan: I am not frequently chased by lions ix
[8:20 PM] Sruixan: I do not have this kind of information concerning my powers of acceleration to hand
[8:20 PM] Ixcaliber: sruix can you liveblog your problems with this questionnaire to the pmc
[8:20 PM] Sruixan: that is a very good idea
[8:20 PM] Ixcaliber: i want more people to experience your sarcasm at this bad overlong questionnaire

So, buckle up, motherfuckers...

RE: Post making contest
This is update #271.
  • 15 is basically asking "do you even lift, bro?", and two of the four options would have you indicate that you can lift a fuckton. Like, no. I am not jimmy buffest.
  • the scale of hand-eye coordination runs from "I'm horrible at video games" to "I can juggle well" to "I could be an Olympic marksman" this is a shit scale
  • "My reflexes have saved my life on more than one occasion." HOW IS THIS A THING THAT PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE
  • "23. If I punched someone as hard as I could... I might kill them" UHH
  • "25. It's worse to be: Weak or Fragile" honestly these questions are not great
  • "34. It's worse to be: Too Skinny or Too Stocky" what's the context here 'cause like there's scarcely a worse one to be unless you're at the north pole freezing your scrawny arse to death or something
  • also is it supposed to be what I would think would be worse for me to personally be or what it's worse for other people to be how am I supposed to be the judge of other people in this way
  • you may think this is a lot of blather concerning one question but this is in the middle of a whole series of this ilk and is simply the point where I've finally snapped
  • "41. It is better to... ...defend the weak. or ...help the poor." Both. Both is good.
  • "44. I work out... ...so that I will be healthier. or ...so that I will be more attractive." I feel like we established about twenty questions ago that the answer is "so that I will remain functional"
  • "45. Animals... ...deserve our respect. or ...are delicious." what the fuck
  • "47. I think it would be interesting to have a supernatural experience. True or False" well geez yes it sure would be interesting but I feel like you are being a little light on the parameters here are we talking mild oobe or being pursued by a bloodthirsty phantom
  • [8:42 PM] Sruixan: WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT IN LIFE: FEELING EMOTIONS OR
    [8:42 PM] Sruixan: THE ALTERNATIVE DOES NOT MATTER
    [8:42 PM] Sruixan: what the fuck is this question
    [8:42 PM] Sruixan: emotions happen
    [8:42 PM] Sruixan: sometimes they are not the greatest
    [8:43 PM] Sruixan: but why are they something that you can describe as being "more important" than something else
    [8:43 PM] Sruixan: you are going to feel these emotions whether you like it or not
    [8:43 PM] Sruixan: this is going in the post but I made vocalisations at this one
  • "60. Religion is an institution that... ...allows some people to exploit the fears of others. or ...helps people live meaningful lives." well this is a damned harsh binary
  • "65. I would rather spend two hours... ...learning something new. or ...leisurely jogging." where is the option for "taking a nap"
  • and also that's yet another shitty binary can you imagine the circumstances that led to that choice being one you would actually have to make
  • "66. I would rather spend two hours... ...alone in the wilderness. or ...alone working with my hands." uhhhhhh so my immediate interpretation of the second choices was suspect and then I reread the first and this is a terrible question
  • "74. I would rather spend two hours... ...hiking a trail. or ...discussing philosophy." again why not both
  • "76. I would rather spend two hours... ...at the gym. or ...at church." this quiz really has a knack for throwing up ridiculous dichotomies
  • "79. I would rather spend two hours... ...camping with my friends. or ...drinking with my friends." again I refuse to believe these are mutually exclusive
  • "85. I would rather spend... ...a night on the town. or ...a day riding horses." THIS IS NOT A BOTH THIS IS A NEITHER
  • THE ACT OF ME RIDING ON A HORSE IS EXTREMELY DISCOMFORTING FOR BOTH PARTIES BELIEVE ME
  • [8:53 PM] Sruixan: urgh 92 (" Family elders are expressing disapproval of you to the rest of the family. Do you:")
    [8:54 PM] Sruixan: the correct answer is "ignore them slash laugh it off"
    [8:54 PM] Ixcaliber: yep
    [8:55 PM] Sruixan: "and then internalise the disapproval by chucking it into the simmering pit of self-loathing"
  • "98. A powerful but corrupt lawyer offers you money if you'll testify against your friend. Do you:" well hold up there give me a minute this is not a scenario I've ever really considered the possibility of finding myself in before
  • "103. Are you still in touch with childhood friends?" huh we're pulling out the punches here now "No, I don't have anything in common with them anymore." and now it's just a bit too on the nose
  • "106. If you were injured and required immediate assistance, would members of your home town agree to help?" have you heard about the NHS
  • "111. If offered enough money, would covertly assassinate the President?" UHHHHHH hold on can I ask the NSA to politely look away for one second please
  • (if they keylogged that then sorry I might play some more Cook Serve Delicious later please look forward to the 1pscrpscrpscr↵2↓↵3mmm1↑↑↑→→→qf↵ spam)
  • "Yes, I've done similar things before." WHO IS ABLE TO SELECT THIS ANSWER IN GOOD FAITH
  • this quiz got extremely political disconcertingly fast
  • "126. What's the best path to wealth?" dunno but if you have an objectively correct answer back there in the code would you mind sharing
  • oh bless I can get the answers output in HTML code for my LiveJournal that I totally have
  • Chaotic Neutral Human Wizard (2nd Level)
  • [9:06 PM] Ixcaliber: i think that doesn't sound terrible
    [9:06 PM] Ixcaliber: everyone gets human though
    [9:06 PM] Sruixan: I feel like it is very hard not to be a basic human without answering in a completely bullshit manner
    [9:06 PM] Ixcaliber: it's bad
    [9:06 PM] Ixcaliber: yeah
