    @Rogueywon What the... you can sort your steam library by "completed"? How do you do that.

    @monsieur-Cosmo I know I'm not Rogueywon but that's the downloads tab rather than games in library. You could manually make a folder to dump your 'completed' games in though.

    edit: Quoted from a page I found on Google:

    "Once you have an idea what you'd like your categories to look like, start organizing. Right-click any game tile or title in your library and select "Add to Category." You'll be prompted to add the game to one of your existing categories if you have some, but if you're starting from scratch, you won't see any. Type in the name of your first category, click "Add Category," and then click OK. Your game will be in your new category, and your new category will be viewable in the sidebar (sadly, only in detail view and not from the Library drop-down).

    One thing to keep in mind though: Steam only allows a game to exist in one category at a time, so if you have a game in your favorites, it overrules all of your other categories. If you add a game to one category, then try to add it again to another, it'll be removed from the first one."


    Maybe this is of help?

    @mrpon

    I’m spending more time than ever on mine. Started off as exuberant peach fuzz and now I have full on long black hairs growing out of the fuckers. I usually use tweezers but sometimes I use a lighter. These days though I’m worried the whole thing will go up like an August haystack.

    My hair status seems like an exuberant practical joke. Like in a video game you’ve got a certain amount of points for some stat but you can decide where you spend them.

    Hair on your head? Let’s move it around a bit. How about instead you have legs like a wilderbeast, shaggy nostrils, tufty ears and a ringpiece that needs some kind of petrol driven powertool for access. And a head like a fucking pornstar’s nutsack.

    Thanks for that. Absolutely rocking it.

    Not a hair apparent. Unless I want to grow the sides out and look like Gargamel having a rough day.

    I know exactly where you're coming from Mac you hairy-eared beast

    I like to pretend I am doing magic on the train and pull my ear out from my head using the longest hair - it's currently about 7cm long so it really does fool some people into thinking I have magic.

    Yeah, I'm another old bastard with fluffy ears. Sometimes I shave, sometimes tweezers and now and again the barbers use flame. It sucks being old...and fluffy.

    This is all lovely n all, I was merely asking at what age do people (men?) stop bothering? I've seen some festering waxy furballs in my time often with spouses in tow and wondered, why don't they say something?

    I always wondered what the evolutionary benefits of growing hair in all sorts of places that don't make sense as you get older could be.

    I can understand hair in general is basically a leftover from our primate ancestry but why grow more (in some places) as you get old? Wouldn't the matter and energy be better spent on regrowing dead cells; you know, that process that causes us to die once it slows down too much?

    I'd have a serious talk with Darwin if he were still with us.

    I guess you stop with the hairy ears about the same time as cord trousers suddenly seem smart and policemen all look young and 'music nowadays is just noise'.

    I think it sadly happens gradually and you become bitter and twisted and eventually couldn't care less what people think because you're comfortable with your hairy ears and corduroy....or the hair grows so fast you can't keep up.

    I'm not there yet, but I'm sure I'm wearing clothes that younger me would have been appalled by. But then younger me would go out in a short sleeved shirt in the middle of winter, so what did that pillock know?

    Afternoon,

    My printer is being a dick.

    Photo.

    As the photo shows, it's missing bits of ink. I assume its the ink alignment but I did all that and it changed nothing?

    It's an Epson X-355 if that makes an difference.

    Any help would be most appreciated as its not even a month old.

    Are you trying to print US format on A4 paper? Check what dimensions you are using. Also, make sure scale to fit is selected. Might help.

    This fixed it. It was automatically formatted to Letter. Quick change to A4 and that did the job.

    Thank you!

    Another English language question (next time I'll create an *official* thread I think). Concerning "yes", "yeah", and "yea".

    "Yes" is of course the standard version, but "yeah" is frequently used instead, particularly in American English. I've often used "yea" for "yeah" but it seems that spelling actually refers to the parliamentary approval which is pronounced "yay" and may cause confusion if used in another context.

    Questions:

    A) do Brits say "yeah" a lot or is that considered American?

    B) is "yea" just used in a parliament context?

    C) I'm curious if some northern English dialects (whose pronunciation tends to be closer to their German/Danish roots) use some sort of "ya" instead of "yes".

    EG is probably the best place on the internet to ask for non-sarcastic advice, so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance.

    @DrStrangelove

    We say yeah a lot.

    Yea? In parliament you have ‘aye’ meaning ‘yes’. As in ‘the ayes to my right have it.’

    Not sure who says ‘ya.’ Not northerners. Posh Sloane types will say ‘ya’, that’s the only time I’ve herd it. Maybe some southwestern rural dialects sound similar.

    I'm trying to work out where we use yes/yeah but yes is probably more factual and definite. Yes, I like potatoes. Is this the right train? Yes.

    Yeah is a bit more like "yes, keep talking". Or excited. "Do you want a beer?" "Yeah!"

    Yea/yay would only be used informally like hooray. "Yay you, well done."

    Unless it's a Wednesday because we reverse all meanings then.

    Stupidly agreed (whilst drunk) to see Rocky Horror for the first time at the Lyceum in Sheffield with the other half tonight and I'm dreading it - anyone have an idea what to expect?

    I've read that Rocky Horror 'virgins' get singled out and brought to the front; as someone with a fair bit of social anxiety that would be a fucking nightmare for me.

    Any tips? :confused:

    Why does the BBC insist on using the same picture of Shamima Begum that makes me think she's Q from ST:TNG.

    Expect it to be quite raucous. There will be constant interruption of proceedings with the audience quoting lines and using props that have become associated with specific scenes. Are you doing the cinema experience or the stage?

    It is definitely worth trying to find some of the information around quotes and whatnot beforehand as shouting slut at Janet at every opportunity never gets old. Although in the current climate this may not be standard anymore. It will also make you enjoy it a little more if you can get involved.

    I never saw that virgin idea when I went to see it, granted that was ten years ago or something.

    You should probably dress up as well, this will help you fit in. Good excuse to wander the streets in drag, assuming one needs an excuse, of course.
