This last week you may have noticed that there were very few posts, and when there, was I was very brief. Well, that is about to change, and I will be back to work on Faeit 212 again.

Presence of Faeit is my weekly editorial. I generally report during the week what is going on, and today is my day to comment on what exactly it is that I am thinking of.


Moved:
I have completed my move to my new house, and am just getting settled. The only issue left is, I have no internet access until Tuesday. So when I am able to get online, its from somewhere else, which is very limiting.

So tuesday they are coming out to install internet access to the new house, and Faeit 212 will be back up and running at full steam, just in time for the Christmas season and the end of the year.

40k
My models are still in boxes, but this week, probably Monday sometime, I will be breaking the tape on the boxes and filling up my new cabinets for my models. There is lots of new space to get games in at the new house, and eventually I will be building a new rooms on the lower level so that I have dedicated areas to game. Should be enough room for 5 or more tables down there.

So I am hoping to get my first game in (in far too long) sometime in the next couple weeks if all goes well.

New House
the new house backs to a large green space, and now I wake up to a forest. Its a great adjustment from hearing sirens at all hours, and I am no farther from stores etc. The house currently has just under 3000 sq ft, and once I start construction there is another 1k sq ft of already wired and plumbed in expansion areas for me to build into. Lots of fun.

I will see everyone on Tuesday after internet is installed.

  2. I will never understand people's desire to live in houses. Apartments for life.
    From $1 a day ghettos to $13,000 a day trump/dubai penthouses, there's something for everyone.

    1. Tax breaks, building equity in an asset, and ownership of property with which you can do as you please, for starters.

    2. Not having to deal with other people's crap. Freedom to do whatever the hell I want with the space whenever the hell I want. I could never find a place for rent that gives me the freedom I want at the price I can afford.

    3. Except the government currently plans on removing the tax deduction for mortgage interest January 1st, increasing property tax, and charging all kinds of fees to real estate companies just because they have money.

      Owning is going to suck in less than 6 months.

    4. A flat will never be yours, only the space above it. Maintenance is a nightmare.

      Owniung your own home is sensible.

      Oh, and faeit, it's further from, not farther.

  3. Congrats on the completed move. You haven't missed much, been rather quiet this month in general.

  4. Are you trolling? Houses are usually bigger, offer more options, allow you to make improvements, and in the long run cost less.

    1. You mean have higher maintenance cost, more bills + taxes, less security all for the bonus of 1 more master bedroom and being able to put up shelves.
      You can easily buy apartments or coops and in neighborhoods with competitive schools, the price rarely goes down, even with the the real estate bubble.
      Not to mention, buying a house = settling down. If your profession requires you to move around or you just like a change of scenery every now and then (again, heavily based on your profession), you'll have to sell the house which is a huge hassle.
      Hell, renting a house is even a better option if you've the income.

    2. I'm guessing you're relatively young. Depending on where you live (I.e. most places), renting an apartment is relatively commensurate with mortgage payments, and even more affordable if you're married. And I and many of my friends have jobs that require moderate to high travel tempos, and we all own homes. Don't be surprised if your perspective on home ownership changes in 5-10 years. When I was younger I couldn't imagine being a home owner either.

    3. Lawl at anti-property troll. People have preferences. I and many others would much rather have a private home that is not in a shared building. If you don't see the value in it, that's fine, but don't presume that there's no reason for it.

      Enjoy the new house natfka!

  6. I can't tell if the tau are fighting the space marines or helping out.

    The firewarrior's going, WATCH OUT! There's a demon behind you! And the assault cannon goes "I got the one behind you too!"

    The suit is like, I'll kill the demon prince! and the claw guy is like, now battle brother! You are no match!
    But then the suit goes "woah woah woah watch the paint yo"

    1. Considering the claw tearing into the Crisis Suit's chest and the shaggy marine faces and wolf emblems, I'm going to go with Tau VS Space Wolves.

  10. Congratulations on the new home, and I sincerely hope the kidney stone has long gone (I had one of those a few years back, dreadful doesn't cover it)

    I too have just bought a new flat (apartment) and was ecstatic as I can fit one 6" x 4" table in the spare room, amazing you can set up five!

    A final question, we've paid roughly £85,000 for our two bed flat which we got for an amazingly low price. I was wondering how your seemingly massive place compares?

    1. A 1 bedroom apt. here in Vancouver goes for $299,000. cdn.

    2. Yeah, makes me sick when I hear Americans talk about property. Is a joke. 1k to build into. That'd be 2 years worth of planning application, consulting with the council, being told what colour you can/can't have the bricks. Is just a joke.

      Delete
    3. my home is about 3000sq ft, but is mostly framed in and wired for an additional 1k sq ft once I get settled and save up some liquid cash again. So yes, there is lots of room once I expand, and even now I have quite a bit of room for my family.

      It will be a couple years before I can save up to expand the house along the inside.
