@ben_lubar You could lock the topic, thereby forcing them to create a new topic if the the issue should occur again.
I mean, I could too, but it isn't bothering me, and, well, work.
isn't there a way to sell it back into the network?
It depends based on where you live and who your provider is. Even if you can sell excess power back, the amount you get for selling it back to the network compared to the amount you pay varies based on the same factors.
Effective this month, my electric company implemented a policy change on solar power buy back. If you were in their system prior to July 1, you're grandfathered in and continue to sell excess power at wholesale rates, which means that each kW you put into the grid during the day offsets a kW you take out of the grid at night. If you get put in the system now, they have some complex system for determining what you get for your excess power, but it will be less than the wholesale rate.
On reflection, that was extremely unfair of me, and I apologise.
No worries. Pretty sure you already apologized, and I was using it is a recent example of something that has happened with other players.
Also the players here seem to have a limited ability to compartmentalize the games, even though games are supposed to be isolated prior games kept coming back to plague players in future games. Once someone played brilliantly as scum they seemed to be forever branded with that suspicion.
This is one of my biggest complaints. Early on, I vocally opposed arguments based on games. Unfortunately, I was not in the majority, and I lost those debates. Over time, I even got drawn into it some, because it's hard to resist when the practice is so pervasive, but I at least tried to limit myself to using prior games as more of a back story type thing, but there are people who regularly used it to support arguments.
Even worse though is people bringing in stuff that is ongoing in the rest of the forum. There was an incident in the last game I played where a player was inactive for a while, at a time that made them look scummy. Most of their attempts to recover amounted to admitting that they forgot that this is an international forum, but some of the excuses provided were based on things said in the status thread. There have been times where conversations from outside the game have been brought into the game thread, as well.
Not only that, but my current job is a barrier to playing. We have an open office plan, there aren't even cubicles!
Let's make a showerhead that mists you, yet can apparently clean you better!
Not to mention that those fine droplets will be cold by the time they hit you, but they somehow manage to spin that off as a "feature"...
During a Phoenix summer, that would be a feature. Right now, the water is so hot coming into my house, that I have my water heater turned off, and the water is still a little bit warmer than I tend to like for a shower.
Looks like your connection to What the Daily WTF? was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
