    That thing I order above is coming from Russia, but due to apparently Russian to English translation issues, it is coming from "Rumowt, Russian Federation". Phonetically it makes sense but I'm kinda surprised the Cyrillic just didn't translate the English name of the town, Khabarovsk...

    But it makes me smile that they tried...

    RUMOWT is a code for logistics center. RU is for Russia, MOW is for Moscow.

    I like that it might have a different answer but what's the T for?

    Nothing really, just an index (a, b, c... etc)
    Here's all of them: https://wheremy.com/ems-post-tracking/ru-ems-tracking-russia-ems-russian-post-subsidiary-of-fsue-russian-post

    If you're interested, 'Rumowt' doesn't mean anything in Russian, phonetically.

    Neat!

    Oh, I never meant that in Russian it make sense... but as a weird English phoentically it does. "Remote" Russia make me smile... (and considering where it's coming from).

    From a logistics side, since it went to Moscow, I'm guessing that there isn't an international sorting facility on eastern border with the Pacific.

    I'm pretty sure Vladivostok and Blagoveschensk have international facilities, but they're working with China/Japan/rest of SE Asia and Oceania. Stuff going to America is likely routed through Atlantic even if the destination point is closer to West coast.

    After a pretty downer year i'm trying to set up some long term goals to help keep spirit's up.

    First i'm building a PC (for Cyberpunk mainly) so i'm saving for that, probably build it around Jan. Next i'm thinking about taking a short 3 night trip to Japan, just to experience it. I'm not one for travelling alone, but i'll never go if i don't do something now. Was thinking of using my tablet (when it's fixed) to take photo's while i'm there and draw my own characters into them so it can be an exercise in drawing practice.

    11+ hour flight: 2x4x2 configuration plane. Seated in a window...seat mate never showed up. Could get up whenever I wanted, could twist my body a bit and encroach into the space of the open seat. I needed that little win.

    If you can spare the time, there's lots of ways to stay/eat cheap in Japan... It's an incredible country, you're going to need more than 3 days. I don't know if they still do the foreigner rail pass, but if they do, you can get cheap access to the shinkansen (aka bullet train) and really go out and see a lot in a short period of time.

    my fiancee has me looking for what I want for my wedding band, and I don't know how to tell her how hilarious all this shit is. I'm fine with a metal looking thing. Seriously, the item descriptions are totally like "THE CHESSMASTER: Hey, you know you're a conqueror, did you also know you have a huge cock, you're manly as fuck, and all the other women in the world are so sad that you're going to be unavailable to blow any time in the future, cuz you're getting married, you lucky stud!"

    I may be exaggerating a little here, but not much.

    Heh, I never noticed that but you're absolutely right. I switched over to a silicone wedding band 3 years ago and it's the best ever. No (or less) reason to remove for factory work, yard work, etc.

    i have a very simple titanium band that i like a lot. we got it from a guy on etsy who was super nice. i'd honestly look around on there because there are a lot of cool artists who aren't trying to shove those sorts of descriptions down your throat.

    i put out a new album tonight at midnight and it's available on bandcamp
    the download comes with an instrumental version of the album
    50% of the proceeds go to The Trevor Project to help prevent suicide among LGBTQ youth

    i started working on this album on august 19th, and releasing it tonight meant that it was 33 days from start to finish.
    i've been going through a really tough time for the last two months, and creating this really helped me work through it.
    it's also the 5th anniversary of my wedding, the 10th anniversary of my first album, and the 15th anniversary of my suicide attempt.
    so you could say this date holds a lot of significance for me.

    help me raise money for a good cause and get some cool music in return.

    thanks <3

    After nearly a month my Tablet has finally been repaired and i have it back. I say "repaired" but the repair notes state the Mainboard and Keyboard/Wacom part were replaced...which is everything apart from the screen. I basically have a brand new tablet, which is even better as it was second hand (a refurbished display model) when i bought it for half the price of a new model a couple months back...result! I can finally digital draw again!

    My "supervisor" who I've finally come to terms with, mostly. This kid drives me crazy with her attitude. Is going foh to be a server. She does good, overall, but has that cliche entitled attitude. (Culinary kid) It's mostly her tone. Anyhow, the one thing about my new gig is soon to not be an issue. Also I bumped you sautee. I'm kinda gonna miss cleaning the rotisserie every night.

    So it's pissing it down in London (we're finally back to regular weather here) and it's my mates birthday this weekend, but she's outta the office after today, so i got in early so i could surprise her with a coffee and a card. She walked in, looking pretty miserable and soaked, and then had the biggest smile on her her when she found she had a nice warm coffee waiting for her i think i made her morning a bit better!

    Maybe shameless self-promo, but not really. Just happy to have finished a few "the best of" gallery of sunrise images including video with my music recorded today, nothing amazing but until someone puts me down, I feel good. :-) https://www.zonerama.com/Link/Album/5660797 So there goes the weekend, time passes so quickly being artist. ;-)

    I used to make that as a kid on those really shitty frozen bagels from the grocery store (not even the Lenders ones; just the store brand ones). These days, that's just too sweet for me. Just give me butter or a butter-like spread on the toast and I'm a happy camper.

    @elevenism @henryeatscereal @xfocalinx - I don't know why I didn't say this sooner, but seeing how popular and active the WWE and South Park threads have been on ETS since the old ETS.

    Nine Inch Nails fans enjoying professional wrestling and South Park just seems like a match made in Heaven to me, dare I say. I think it's also because the 1994-1995 era of NIN also reminds me of wrestling. (Granted, he's been so much more built for quite some time, but I also meant that in terms of image, and aura/atmosphere.)

    And with South Park, I'd figure it's a given as it seems like a show that Trent Reznor would enjoy, and right up his alley in terms of humor and satire.

    I don't think I could say it enough, but I'll definitely say it one last time before the 2010s end.

    YouTube, especially as somebody that went on Newgrounds and YTMND so much back in the 2000s.

    I sometimes take it for granted, but when I think about how things used to be before the Internet was the way it is now, or even just imagining what life was like without it, has certainly cheered me up as it certainly helped me not be as bored without it, even in spite of how much I like to relax at home. It has been, and always will be, as long as it's exists, one of the best time killers on the Internet ever, hands down, and just perfect for when you want to stay in and not do anything, or even if you have a hard time going to sleep at night.
