Story
Tagline
SinbadEV for those who know me from the Internets.
Introduction
I have a habit of saying things that aren't technically true or that are not an honest reflection of my opinions and feelings and/or changing my opinions and/or correcting my previous statements. Essentially I'm a chronic Wembler.

Saw the Gorilla, successfully crafted a Hexahexaflexagon, one time I fell to my knees and screamed "Kahn" because I'd missed my bus, have better than average balance and can see Autostereograms quicker than most people, once chugged a jar of pimentos, had my brain scanned for Science, know how to grammar good and vocabulate but often choose not to, am loud... like very loud.

From the "You Never Know Unless You Ask" File:

Do you or someone in your household collect Pokémon TCG cards?

You may or may not have noticed the "online unlock codes" that usually come with packs and theme decks... well.

They aren't garbage!

You can use them to unlock content in the fully realized Online version of the Pokémon TCG.which is actually pretty good and free to start with enough free solo content to give you an idea of what it's like and doubles as a pretty solid tutorial for playing the physical game too.

So, the ask is... if you have someone in your household who collects the physical cards and has no interest in the online version... would you be so kind as to give them to me? I only need the code off the back of the card and then you can toss it or use it as a MtG token creature or bookmark or whatever.

If you do play you can keep your codes... and maybe we can play against each other sometime.(I'm SinbadEV on there... as I am in most places)


(Pokémon TCG: Online is Available for Windows Vista or later versions (with latest service packs), Mac OS X 10.9 or later versions, iPad 3rd Generation or better and Android 4.0 or later Tablets... get started at http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/play-online/download/ )

So today I found the Sky Factory 3 modpack for Minecraft... Having played previous versions the most exciting features so far are wooden shears so you can harvest leaves before getting iron and that the hammer breaks down wood into compostable wood shavings!

This Week I Learned/Realized:

You can make the Windows 10 Start Menu bigger and get rid of most of the garbage Microsoft put there and replace it with commonly used program icons... kinda like how I used to use my desktop...

YES. Win10 does a lot of cool things but buries them under app cruft.
