Maze scale is simply too small to use for gaming 10 Years, 1 Month ago  
When I Opened my First sets of DF, before getting to really play with them I was Confused and Frustrated by the Width of the Corridors actually not the Wall/ Floors...<Grin>... Because you can do nothing with them but use them as Corridors... Needless to Say I was an Early Convert to the Interior walls being used as Corridors School of DF appreciation... And I Could not do that with Wall Sections having a Full 2x2 surface area for the floor....

Brvheart,

Sorry to hear about Money Stuff... (Bet DF is too...<Chuckle>...), But even more sorry to Hear that you folks are Having to get Additional Jobs... That means less time to game...

I wish they were 'extra' jobs. Part-time is the best we can get at the moment and will be spending a lot of road time to get it. Left thursday afternoon and returned yesterday. 7 hours driving for 12.5 hours work. on to Corpus next sometime this week.

Ugh, you have my sympathy. Worst job I ever had (actually, sadly, that isn't even true) I had to commute 3 hrs to be in my office for 3 hours. And then 3 hours home.

Leave home: 7 am. Arrive train station: 8. Train leaves: 8:15. Arrive destination: 9. Walk to office, arrive: 9:45. Office hours until 11, teach class until 12: 30, office hours until 2, walk back to train station, wait for train, catch subway, be home at 6:45pm.

Twelve hours away, six of them in transit, to teach a 1 1/2 hour class. With three hours of office hours, just to make it feel like there was a reason I had to go that far.

All for an adjunct salary (i.e. no benefits, and not much salary either for that matter)

Still makes me shudder to remember it.

Law,

What did you, (Do you), Teach? And that does sound wretched, Hope things are less dramatic these days...

I've had worse jobs. Mostly what concerns me at the moment is not knowing how many hours we will be getting and whether we will be able to even keep up yet dig ourselves out of the hole we will be in by the time we get the first check in 3 weeks.

So the Money is sufficient at least to make the Drive worth while? (Once you get "Caught up" that is)...

I teach philosophy -- job market is really tight. I've been adjuncting for a while, I'm hoping to get full-time, tenured employment soon.
