    TOMD: Just started a new contact. A sister company is splitting from the parent company on a technical level. I was expecting to be handling fallout from a domain migration gone awry - basic desktop support stuff. Instead, I just finished drafting requirements for their entire domain infrastructure, including data control and ownership, GDPR requirements, division of labour between in house and the vendor building the servers, migration process, etc.

    It's fucking fantastic resume fodder. I wouldn't normally be doing this sort of stuff for another few years!


    E: OK cool I'm also evaluating and delivering a report on a multimillion vendor relationship and designing their SEIM/security architecture. I sure feel like a real consultant now!

    TOMD: Took the shitty weather as an excuse to finish a dozen or so minor woodworking projects I've had on the backburner for a while. Wife got home from work and asked why there was a giant oak table in the living room.

    Answer: Because I'd finally gotten tired of looking at the finished top and decided to add hairpin legs instead of a complicated wooden base that would have doubled it's finished weight.

    Went for a body composition scan today and came in at 21.8% body fat, which is a lot better than the ~30 I expected. Yeet.

    Haven't a clue. I was around 22 stone at my biggest though. I would guess over 45% probably.
    You know it babe. ❤️

    Steam will give automated refunds if you ask through their support, as long as you meet the requirements of it being less than 2 weeks from the date of purchase and you've put less than two hours into the game.

    You can find instructions for how to do it here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6695-QIKM-7966

    And yes, it is a bit obtuse, but it's a hell of a lot better than it used to be.

    Thanks guys. I've started the refund, fortunately I stopped 'playing' this morning with only 50 minutes logged.

    EDIT: And done.

    What sort of potato are you running it on? My laptop runs it at a buttery choppy 24fps lol.

    There's actually a few tricks you can do to help out. I found a program that cuts frames when you move the camera around, which helps massively on low-spec hardware. You can get mods to simplify textures, although your mileage may vary on how freaking hideous it is.

    Windows 8, Intel HD graphics, Intel R Pentium CPU G2020T 2.5 and 2.5, 5 gigs of Ram.

    I did read about some low-def mods that might help, but honestly, I bought the game for the enhancements it could receive from mods and without that it isn't really worth it.

    Jesus christ, man. That's a 2 core processor from 2013? I'm legitimately impressed that you got the game to run at all. I imagine if you were to try and run ENB and HD texture mods on top of it, your compooter melt.

    And Steam won't be giving you the original 2011 version but the 2016 remastered Special Edition which carries higher specs even before laying down the mods.

    Reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to my son. He smiles every time I do my voice for Hagrid.

    Now I can't help but think of a shitty fic with political!Harry, with Hagrid taking the role of explainer-in-chief.
