  1. I'm an engineer and I tend to keep current on technology. I've been watching 3D printing for the last few years. I can tell you that we have 3 massive 3d printers at work that are basically running 24/7. The amount of stuff we can do with them would blow your mind. But the interesting thing is that there is a company out there that brings the power of this stuff right to your home. https://www.prusaprinters.org/ The guy in charge of our industrial grade machines has one of these at home. As do 3 others that also use work's 3d printers. That's a pretty big ringing endorsement for me. Of course, the fact that the demo picture is printing a dragon helps I plan on picking up a Prusa printer when I have completed stage 2 of my mancave project. I need a nice temperature regulated place to keep my new printer before I go and buy it. I figure putting it in the new workshop I'm designing and building would be the best bet. Is anyone here playing with 3d printing yet?

    Searching for prompt topics

    The search is built in and there's really not much we can do about it. The Story Search works as well as it does because it is search titles only. @Timothy M. One option for the Writing prompts is to change the sort function to "Title" It should let you find the prompts faster.

    Searching for prompt topics

    I typed prompt 597 in the search box on the red menu. It found your topic asking where it was and the topic you were looking for? I also think age of a topic has an effect on search. This isn't Google where there is infinite resources devoted to finding everything, everywhere.
  4. 3d printing is fun I have my own now. Prusa Mk3S shipped straight from the Czech Republic. other than an initial hiccup, it's run like a champ.

    Spider-Man on PS 4

    So this is a thing. The reviews have been outstanding. I played the first mission up to the first boss fight this morning. It's a beautiful looking and sounding game on the PS4 Pro. Outstanding really. The little I've played so far, reminds me of Batman Arkham series but with a much more kinetic character to control. My only complaint is with the PS4 controller. 12 years of using xbox's stellar controller and the steaming pile of crap that is the PS4 (more like POS) controller makes playing anything an exercise in frustration. I mean seriously.. where the hell is the guide on what an R1 vs R2 vs R3 means? That's just stupid. And the layout is not built for large hands. The controller sucks in the extreme. I'm looking to see if I can find a decent PS4 with the xbox physical layout... Otherwise I'll have to just play this game in story mode, because I spent more time fighting the controller than I did enemies on the screen...
  9. Looks cool. Probably great for watching (Twitch, Mixer, Whatever). Not my sort of game genre. I like single player, story heavy games most.

    Bioware's Anthem

    With the background knowledge that I have owned every game Bioware has released in the last 20 years from Baldur's Gate (twice in fact, I bought the enhanced edition re-release) to now... I was fully expecting and looking forward to Bioware's new game. Bioware is known for the high quality stories (the rush job on Mass Effect being the only recent bad blip in recent memory) but there was no story evident in the trailer for Anthem. I hope this is just trailer emphasis and not the actual total lack of story. This game reminds me WAY too much of Destiny and The Division. Two decent games I own... but never ever play. I like playing a variety of games but some of these games require fanatic dedication to be any good in order to enjoy the MMO-crap they attach to the games. That said, Bioware has Star Wars The Old Republic which is the only MMO I could ever tolerate because you can basically play completely on your own with great story and not worry too much about the MMO crap. Anthem... I'm being cautious on. The graphics look outstanding and the flying mech suits look like great fun.... but...

    Writer Flow

    Has it been 47 already? wow! Thanks Comsie! You are really great at giving me things to think about while writing. There have been a few stories I've read where the story was moving so well that it pushed right past the grammar issues and other things. To be honest, I tend to miss grammar things if the story is flowing properly. It's kind of like a stream... if it is flowing fast, it just rolls over obstacles. If it slow, then it starts hitting every rock and pebble in the stream, breaking up that flow.

    Bioware's Anthem

    So... I played the demo. For the first time since Baldur's Gate came out in 1998 (!) I will not be buying a Bioware game at launch. I'm even okay with Mass Effect Andromeda, minus them setting up some things and totally blowing it. That wasn't the main studio though. Anthem is out of the main studio and while the game looks great and it is very cool to fly around in your own personalized Iron Man suit... the game lacks purpose and story per all the reviews. I'm totally turned off by the multiplayer. Other people constantly ruin my enjoyment of games. This little less so since it is not player vs player, but it's still no good. I want to explore on my own and do things instead of having to be teamed up to get anywhere. Hard pass. I'll check the bargin bins in a month or 2 when it's down 70% before thinking of getting it.

    xbox 360 games suggestions

    You'll have to adjust the filters... I'd recommend System= xbox 360, Game Genre = Roleplaying, then once you have the list... click on ratings to sort the best to the top. https://www.trueachievements.com/games.aspx There are links to buy and other media. Gives you tons of options.

    Thanks Gary! I've been slowly but surely working in the background. There will be more of Jerry seen in stories.

    Rich Boy: Growing Pains

    This book is complete. There are 30 chapters total. I'm doing a scan with Grammarly to fix most of the comma errors prior to post. dkstories seems to have absolutely hated commas.

    What happened to the Ask an Author blog?

    They are in Author News Blog:
  20. We had to do a server update earlier today and I had a small configuration issue. The background task was not processing the last few hours and I've corrected that issue. There was a glut of notifications that were off by several hours. We also had an odd incident where an Author group expired. If this happens to you, you can just go back to the store and select author again. (In theory) If there is an issue, just send us a support request from the help menu.

    LIKES

    Explanations of the Reactions are there when you hover your mouse over each one. In order from left to right... Love Haha Wow Sad (that's a sad face on a teardrop, by the way) Angry The reactions are standard part of the site in all sections. And they are reactions. Chapters can make you react in many ways from good to bad. Just like any post...

    Tomorrow

    Interesting story with good characterization and a great use of a hook right up front.

    Superhero Surprise

    Great characterization in this short story captures the spirit of a young boy.
  24. No need. she found one for me and I've already reported it to the programmer. That particular issue I think was caused by the upgrade/conversion. since adding new emojji support, this shouldn't be a problem going forward. (ie a one time issue with the conversion of systems)
  25. Very well said! I agree. I, personally, try to make sure I comment on everything I read. Further, if I'm reading a completed story, I try to make sure I review it as well.
