Except the stormcloaks are racist... Oh right.

Anyway, after finishing the main quest of skyrim I realized it was all just the same combat in slightly different settings. I stopped playing. Maybe the civil war line is worth it, but I don't know.

It is interesting to explore though, so It's a fine game. Just time for me to stop after some time.

Make sure to let everyone in Keene know of this:


I would imagine pretty much everyone is aware of that incident already.

I have no problems associating with jay on a personal level since this is resolved. I just will not be putting out any further investments without a more solid business plan.

Is Ian going to start carping on about how much out-of-the-system activists are getting burned out?

Especially compared to the paltry low burnout rate for inside-the-system activists

Barskey being burned out is old news (by years). I was surprised he was even doing Mail-to-Jail for as long as he did.

They're just pissed they didn't get their silly little tank.

They didn't? Thats awesome.

I thought the protests were great, but I didn't think they would stop the BEARCAT.

Great job, guys.

The vote on the BEARCAT is tomorrow.

I find it interesting how every single show copies FTL's format to a T. Even down to the way your show notes are separated with a double-colon.

"Hi, This is _________, and with you are _______, _______ and  ________."

I can't blame anyone for imitating what they have experienced, but I still think it's interesting.


In all its Comic Sans goodness.

Also, did you guys know that each pacman ghost behaves in its own unique way? Also, there is a secret spot in pacman where you can sit and nobody will get you.

I am abundantly pleased to announce that Jay has fulfilled his outstanding debt with me - plus an additional interest payment that was not in the contract. I am extremely grateful this has reached a conclusion beneficial to all involved.

It got too confusing though. Lost track of where I put stuff, so I took one of the monitors out.

Nick, if you are going to be a loanshark, someone is going to renege eventually, especially with the interest you are taking.

If I were a real loanshark, I'd have the infrastructure and experience to deal with this situation. Obviously I'm not. I do not have outstanding contracted loans with other people.

I expected people to take the interest issue and turn me into the bad guy over it - but it's unfounded. First of all, this isn't a situation where someone has paid back all or most of a principal, and it's just the "juice" (That's what real loan sharks call it, right?) left over. The interest is of secondary concern to me at the moment. Let me requote here something I said on facebook:

" The original agreement, (which again, was of Jay's drafting. I'm not going to suggest someone pay me less than he wants to), has already been renegotiated.

I've never been opposed to having whatever conversation needs to happen to get paid. The question on whether I would be willing to rerenegotiate and write off some of the interest amount is a conversation worth having once $4990 is paid back. That is the main issue currently."

 Second, as I have said before, I did not charge, suggest, demand, etc, the interest rate. In the same vein, I was not doing a favor for a friend either. I am not going to counter someone's contract offer with another offer more in his favor - it doesn't make sense.

Sakal CAI, or some arbitrator was the right answer.

There is no dispute for an arbitrator to sort out. Nobody is claiming this money isn't owed.

I'd consider selling the debt to Sakal or anyone else, but some bit of research doesn't lend itself to being an easy, or possible, process.

Do you want me to evict Jay?

Still no answer.

I have private messaged Dale. I didn't realize he was frustrated with my non-answer.

I was just thinking in the car on the way home that this website and forum post is not helping me one bit in repaying this debt. I pretty much wasted the past 24 hours feeling I need to defend myself over everyone's critiques. Which meant me sitting at the computer and doing nothing productive besides feeding my cat and cooking. I thought I had this handled in a responsible manner when I made my own Facebook post about it, and this has interrupted that process.

I need to step away from the forum for a bit. I just thought I'd let you know why I won't be replying.

Well yeah. The website and post is a consequence of failing to uphold 2 contracts. I didn't do it because i thought you needed more motivation. I still believe you are sincere in your desire to repay.

I knew it would be a distraction, but you already know that all manner of online interaction is a distraction (as it is to me. I turn off my internet when i need to meet certain deadlines that are not network dependant). The point is, despite me knowing this would further complicate the issue, I believe if it were anyone else, you would advocate for transparency and responsibility.

Thank you for posting first, but it didnt tell the entire story. If people, including you, think I'm wrong for posting, that's the risk I took.

I intend to repay every cent. I am just on default on the terms.

If I were the creditor, this would be a most welcome thing to hear.

Of course it's nice to hear, and yes, the situation could be worse and far more hostile. The following are also nice things to hear: "I'll have $2500 for you when I get to NH." "You'll have $400 by Wednesday at the latest." "I plan to be caught up in payments by next week"

Until I start seeing evidence that plans and promises result in action, we have an issue. I really don't know if there is a "plan", or if there is just the hope that things will magically work out by xyz date.

It seems to me, a good creditor would want to work with the debtor to find mutually agreeable terms. Perhaps a reasonable long-term interest rate and, possibly, an understanding with any employer(s) and/or landlord(s) the debtor may have. At least that way the creditor gets a little pocket money on a continuing basis.

This would also be nice, and was tried to an extent, as you saw. Although I'm not sure what understanding I could come to with the debtor's landlord, besides making him aware of the debt.

Until there's some kind of pattern of payments, I have to act like the money will never be here, which is a frustrating way to plan my finances. No, I'm not waiting on Jay's next check so I can afford a salad, but still.

Just curious, not taking any side here, as its none of my concern.

What is posting this here supposed to accomplish? Is it to cause embarrassment, in hopes that it will help spur the payments along quicker? Do you believe he is unwilling to pay it back, or do you think he just doesn't have it on hand to pay back?

If it is your belief that he just doesn't have the cash, seems to me, the extra embarrassment doesn't really help to get your money back quicker.

Because there is not a public reputation site for the NH activist community. I have been beyond reasonable regarding timetable and requirements for what I need paid to me (To the extent of suggesting we set the payment table lower than he wanted, so it would be easier to keep up on), and it hasn't even come close. I don't know how much money he has, but regardless, because of the scattered pattern of payments, I basically have to assume I won't have it. Maybe the public exposure will cause it to be paid down quicker. I don't know.

It's also a valuable lesson for anyone who does not already know that a guy who would borrow $5000 at 200% annual interest is not good credit risk.

This is clearly also true, and I have to own it.

Perhaps you should distance yourself from this, let someone else handle the collections. Charge BJ for that, doesnt seem fair that you should make yourself harass him over it.

I would not be sure how to begin this process, or how it would help, besides being able to wash my hands from it (which means I just assume my money is gone until I hear otherwise?). If someone actually doesn't have my money, I could charge him a million dollars and it wouldn't matter.
