Alternately, try to quantify the work and cost of getting it accepted, and find out what exactly moving shop would entail? As long as we're giving super general advice, I find poking at a decision from a lot of different directions sometimes helps.
I currently don't HAVE a shop... I'm looking at opening my own shop because I am tired of trying to get into an opening at shops that want people with like 300 clientèle which means I'd need to have been tattooing for at least 8 years to get that many right now I have about 50... and I've only been doing this for like... 2 years.
Therefore moving shop is not the issue. The cost wouldn't be anything they don't charge for reviewing the floor plan and the safety of it... I get to pay $500.00 a year in bylaw fees to be open to pay for that.... but I don't need the liscense paid for until the location is approved to become a tattoo shop... which costs about 145$ to get it put through the community vote... which considering the area should be fine...
Silly testout. 192.168.10.196 is not a valid network ID with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.192! That'd only work with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.252! This is more stupid than your backwards attempt to describe the internal and bus clock speed ratios in DDR2 and DDR3 memory...
I hope I'm not the only one who has fun spotting errors in teaching materials and textbooks and stuff.
Just found out why my database lab has been failing to work for hours. Apparently we were supposed to include the redo log files in the backup, so that they'll be replaced along with everything else when restoring the database from a backup. Also apparently Oracle likes to tell you there's a networking problem when that happens, instead of actually telling you the database is inconsistent, just for funzies. Curse you Oracle. (Though it does make me feel better that I at least know what a redo log file is now, and that it makes sense in retrospect that using new redo logs with old everything else would cause problems.)
Also, figured out how solve my can't-speak-French problem without actually learning French. The only reason it's a problem is I like to research settings in way too much detail, and some information (history of small towns, what 18th century boarding schools in France were like, what taxes peasants paid in the Oise region) just isn't available in English.
So I'm going to make a list of what exactly I want to know, and put a bounty on it - basically a "explain these things to me in English, and tell me what source you learned it from, and I'll draw things or write code for you" sort of thing. Only thing is finding people who speak both French and English and know where to find history infos and have free time and want art. (I know of at least one person who meets all the criteria except possibly the last one...)
What I'm not sure of yet is whether I should post this in "public" someplace (probably tumblr - has a lot of well-trafficked history tags), or contact specific people. Or maybe I'll go for the middle road by putting up a public bounty list webpage, but not announcing it with a post. (Reasons for not publicizing would be to avoid responses from people whose idea of "reliable, useful info" is too different from mine, and because people might be more likely to help if I'm contacting them specifically instead of broadcasting to everyone.)
Oh, also also, finally started actually writing my story. I... didn't get very far at all yet, but at least there's something written down now other than worldbuilding? XD
That's... I guess it could be weirder? I mean, after personifying countries, personifying fandoms seems... a logical step forward. I think.
Learning to drive is stressing! And kinda fun, but stressing! I ran over a cone and then started laughing incontrollably so I went into the grass, but other than that, I think I did well. I have a hard time getting the car in motion, though... Oh, well. After my precedents with bikes, this is wonderful, though! (I can't ride a bike... or better, I can, but the two last tries I did I crashed... more than twice. And it hurt. Bikes are deadly when I'm on them).
The valve fandom bit was good. Especially that bit about the crowbar. The Homestuck fandom is a bit like an abuse victim and the crowbar is a trigger. Although talking about triggers is also a trigger...
EDIT: Also, do I even want to know what "Hetalia" is?
It's this funny cartoon? Anime? I'm not sure. Well anyway, all the countries are characters. So like Canada is all humble and America is sometimes a ....?... but gets paired up with the England a lot. All the countries are dudes except maybe Hungary? And I think WWII has something to do with it. I've never actually seen any of it, but a friend told me once that it was hilarious crack.
I'm not sure I'd like to characterise a fandom. It's funny but feels very self-indulgent. (But who am I to talk? I've made world-building sites for my own unwritten stories...) And given how fandom seems to be a wave of "This show is awesome!" to "I'm so full of feels" to "Your shipping sucks and you should feel bad!", I'm not sure I'd want to learn about a character representing a fandom.
I'm not sure about fandoms either. I mean even the Valve one left out Left 4 Dead. I really like Left 4 Dead 2, but I kinda hated TF2, never cared one bit about anything Half-Life, and if I'm completely honest I didn't like Portal 2 and was sorta meh about Portal 1. I guess I'm not part of that view of Valve fandom even though I pretty well like Valve overall.
Also: I should really write this paper about the thing where I tried writing down my dreams for a week but I don't wanna.
Hetalia is absolutely hilarious and everyone should watch it~ \o/ (yes it's an anime, but more of a children's level anime. You could even take some very vague history lessons from it haha..emphasis on the vague.)
As for fandoms I watch those from a distance; getting involved would just be a boatload 'o trubble.
Ally: The last time I was sleeping poorly was because I wasn't balancing my diet very well, but yanno, it could be any number of things... ):
I think Hetalia started out as a web manga (drawn by a Japanese person) about WWII, and then got so popular the artist continued it to write about random country jokes and other parts of history, and then it was turned into an anime. Celmon's description is pretty accurate. There are a few other female characters too, though.
The fans are known for being kind of nutty and really liking yaoi. The show itself is good, but kind of WTF sometimes.
