    Your creative process of writing.

    I use scrivener for longer pieces. Basically it's an organisational tool. It saves chapters/scenes and notes as separate files abd hives you a UI to easily move them around. It's handy, but far from essential, and I've sometimes used a separate excel sheet to track various arcs. Would i recommend it? Yes, but it won't help you write, only organise.

    A fiarly big patch has just gone into the PTR. Some interesting stuff heer. Baptistes healing ammo has gone up from 8 to 10, and his ultimate duraction increased from 8 to 10 seconds. Great news for the best healer in the game (tm). DVas defence matrix got a big nerf, with the effective range dropping from 15 to 10 metres. The firing rate of Mcree's primary shot has gone down from .5 to .4 seconds. This should help out (good) Mcrees in dealing with pocketed Pharahs. Orisa's shield deploy no longer interrupts reload, which is great. The interect range for Sym's tele went up from 1 to 1.5ms, whihc is nice... I suppose. Torb's secondary fire damage went down from 12.5 to 10.5 per shot, which is a big boo from me. And, most interestingly, 2CP maps - the time to cap the first point has reduced from 4 to 3 minutes. Also, defenders that died on or near point a when it was capped have a respawn time st at 3.5second max. Apparently the point was to stop attackers over rolling points a and b so easily, but the minute hit to cap point 1 is.... well, I don't think that was needed.

    Cheers man. Quick search though and it seems they're pretty US centric. Their avg prolice here is $30, while i can get Cotmans for around $12

    Hey, @Cocky, you use Cotman brushes, don't you? What's your opinion of them?

    After my game of Malifaux last week I got my 'faux on on the paint desk.

    First game of third ed Malifaux last night. Pretty solid defeat to me, but I was against a guy who'se been playing the edition fo a while and with a newly changed Sonnia crew, so I was approaching the game as a leanring experience, which just also turned out to be an absolute blast. However, it was noted both by my opponant and me, that i was having quite bad card draw luck. The Emmisary (big dude with the cage) stuck around for way longer than it should have simply because I kept flipping terrible cards. I don't think it lost me the game, but I could have pretty much iped out the centre of the board had it not soaked up so much of my actions.

    I tried logging onto my old account last night, just out of interest, only to find it was locked. No idea why, so I emailed blizz support who got back to me in 15 minutes (so their customer service has improved) to say it was closed locked due to irregularities ten years ago. Long story short, it's unlocked and I feel old.

    Also remember there's glue, and then there's glue. If I bought Woolworth's own superglue I'd deserve it when the arm of my Infinity heavy Infantry fell off. The stuff is crap, and worth every penny of it's $1.99 pricetag. Instead I buy the Locktite brand from my local hardware store. It's $7 but oh so worth it. I've never had it break on me, and have put off putting together larger minis for two weeks because I only had the crappy Woolworth's brand and couldn't get to the hardware store.

    Yeah, solo levlling as a warrior is painful as. I miss it not one bit. So in anticipation of Classic's release, I went and joined a provate server. The idea being to run through early level Druid quests so I can hit the ground running on release. But my middle child saw me playing and together we rolled him a warlock. Long story short, I much preferred the Warlock play style and reckon I'll go that route on release. Seriously, getting a Voidwalker at 10 is like taking the breaks of levelling.

    Same. If you think levelling as a warrior is slow, try doing it as a Tauren warrior on an Alliance-heavy PVP server. Thta's how I experienced vanilla WoW and now I have kids, a house and a demanding job I reckon it's going to be PvE for me. However - those that played RP, exactly *how* RP is it? Are we talking people just using "doth" in dungeon group chat, or does ganking take place less often? Because if that's the case I might be swayed to any avlaiable RP PvP servers.

    I get hat sometimes. Usually not long after I booted up the PC. It's the times where it takes one round for the characters to actually show themselves in the map that gets me.

    New patch today. Junkrat's primary fire speed increased, but the nades bounce less before exploding. Basicaly a buff if you can aim. Reaper's Shadowstep is now quicker and doesn't telegraph it's destination, which is pretty cool. Also can be used in mid air. For some reason.

    Just a few details on the bases then these are done.
