The one big thing about failure is, if you don't know what your doing your bond to do it again. Yep. At least these two loaves are eatable. I don't mind failing. As long as I can eat the results. :) I learned this after I tried this last experiment. The longer your going to let dough ferment the smaller amount of yeast you should use. Using all the yeast the recipe called for caused the dough to 'over proof'. This is when the yeast simply run out of food. I did end up tossing the second failure. To raw to eat. So no more experiments for me. This weekend I plan on trying two different recipes. Believe it or not this one recipe is starting to taste 'normal'. You know your getting jaded when home made bread starts tasting like nothing special.

convention talk / Re: Fur-Eh! (June 14 17, 2018 | Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)

Edmonton is reaaaaaaaaaally far from Barrie, ON where the fiance lives but this looks like fun. Is this a new con?

Relatively new, it's been going on since 2012.  initial attendees were ~200 (wikifur doesn't give an exact number so it's hard to believe it was exactly 200, I heard it was under that).
Fur-Eh 2017 had 734 attendees.  It is a comfortably small but growing convention (folks even had to book at the hotel across the street last year) - the convention space itself is huge with respect to amount of folks attending (hotel is capable of hosting 5K+ people), but I think every other hotel in this city is too small or amenities just aren't there for it.

There are two mini-cons here as well (one in Calgary - the Fur-Eh Christmas party; another in Red Deer RDMC - "Red Deer Mini Con") -- those are also hoppin'.

Two Colt M4 Carbine that I'm giving too my two great nephews and I got a Czechoslvakia CZ-50 Pistol for my self...

I have a CZ-50 as well, but it came with CZ-70 grips. A very good shooter.

That's great I pick up a CZ-82 last week end and I'm hoping too get out this week too shot my CZ-50...

And as for the last thing I bought today is a box of 32 APC Ammo...

Taur might be nice. In a practical sense, I'd say anthro. Like Loc, flexible on species. Naga might also be nice.

In high school I wore a collar and a tail, but that was almost 6 years ago. I have some shirts with animals on them and I use my new MFF 2017 water bottle at work, but not so much other than that.

gaming discussion / Nier Automata

Hey there! I'm a bit of a slowpoke when it comes to new releases but I'm getting around to playing this one. I've never played a game in the Drakengard/Nier series before but it was recommended I play this. It's basically Bayonetta with some bullet-hell elements. The gameplay is open-world with some bad side quest design, but the combat is fantastic and the camera angles will change sometimes so you go from playing a hack'n'slash to a bullet hell to a horizontal shooter to a vertical shooter.



Has anybody else played it?

I've unfortunately heard that it isn't very good D:

But it does look like a lot of fun from what I've seen!

More importantly, it bans the burqa. Absolutely absurd.
