Bah, wussies. I have been on midnight shift for 11.5 years now. And I love it.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Stupid kids who bring stupidly cheesy designed armies just to win and make a boring game.

Example, last Friday, a vet I haven't seen in a while comes in with a beautifully painted 2000 beastmen army looking for a game of fantasy. He's been really busy of late and wanted to play me fantasy as we used to have pretty good fun, challenging games that were always close. Anyways, I didn't have my fantasy army with me so he ends up playing some kid who has an 850 point army. Its really busy so they wait about 45 minutes. When they finally start the kid pulls out a tooled out exalted Tzeentch demon, a unit of furies and maybe another unit or two made up of the minimum models to fill out his list. The army had something like 8 or 9 power dice. The game (which lasted like 2 turns) consisted of the kid flying his demon and casting magic and killing the beastman army to death. I don't think the rest of his army even moved. With all the time he had to wait and the other people around he didn't get a chance to play another game, I felt so bad for him, but he took it really nicely, I would have been soo pissed...but that is not the end of it...


After packing up, you know what the kid says..."I am sorry you had to play that army", WTF. That is like saying 'I am sorry for kicking you in the nuts", after wearing steel toed shoes to a sparing contest. If you are so sorry and you know that army is cheesy and does not make a good game, why put it together and bring it in the first place...

*end rant*

this has to be my bigest bitch of a gripe warhammewr related.

at the begging of my 40k playing life my rolling was perfect couldn't find fault atall it was like i was blessed by the dice gods but about a year ago my rolling has done a complete 180, and now i can't roll a unmodified Ld 10 test i rolled a fucking 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its realy pissing me off. i'm a strong belieaver that the luck of the dice dictate the winner, i work on a list for about a month work out how i'm going to use it analyse my opponent and think what hes going to d. I do everything perfect but when it comes to rolling it ruins my plan. my poor rolling has lost me so many games its a fucking joke!!!! well thats enough ranting...for now

Hey Lord maybe you need new dice. I think I am at that point too, I can't roll attacks or penetrating results if my life depended on it. I am off to buy dice today probably.

Leave them out in the sun to recharge. It works, believe me.



I dislike it when people call me on the phone for no damn reason. Nothing irritates me like picking up the phone and hearing 'well what are you doing' in that tone of voice that you just KNOW means they have no real reason to be calling you. If someone wants to talk to me, come on over, talk to me. Don't call me on the phone. To me the phone is a tool used to ARRANGE talking to others in a more personal matter, or getting ahold of someone in order to give them directions they might need, or something similar. It is not something I want to sit there with stuck against my ear for 45mins for no particular reason.

Heh, would it surprise anyone that I have been told I have remarkably bad telephone etiquette?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Hidden tracks on CD's. They piss the hell outa me. When your on iTunes and just set it on play not really choosing any song and a track with a hidden ending pops up and its silence for about 5 minutes. God I hate that.

If people treated their cars like they treat their computers, the bumpers would be covered in porn ads and the trunk would be filled with rotting garbage. I can't stand people who don't take my advice when it comes to computer purchases. If people bought cars like they bought computers, it would be like having 5 kids and buying a Mini because it's within your price range.

*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

The thing about computers though is that most people know polite bugger all about them, they don't know thats its cheaper to build your own and that the pre-built ones are peices of shit. I didn't. It wasn't untill I started hanging out with a whole shitload of Graphic Designers, Illustrators, Photogrpahers and Film Students that I found that out.

That's not necessarily my gripe. Knowing what you need to spend to do what you want to do for the number of years you want to keep it is the trick. I understand that most heavy computer users hate pre-builts and end up building their own. I don't build my own though. I get a great discount from my company. I can fix most of my computer problems myself but if hardware breaks, I don't have to pay for it. My gripe is with computer purchasers that see price only. I wish I could give a demo between the computer they want and the computer they actually need. It boggles my mind that anyone would willingly buy a slow computer unless they absolutely could not afford anything more.
