Why does Garfield hate mondays, even though he doesn't work?

I think he has to hate Mondays because that gives the artist an easy, and repeatable, setup and punchline. It's not logical, but it works. You see the same thing in Peanuts. If Charlie Brown is so bad at pitching, why do they keep letting him pitch?
Beyond that, Garfield is also acting as a stand-in for the reader, hating what you hate etc. And Charlie Brown on the mound giving up homeruns is a metaphor for the failures we all face.

Now that i think about it, that might be right. Sure, Jon works from home, but what if he, as a professional cartoonist, keeps a fixed schedule? It could be that he relaxes on the weekends, with plenty of time to entertain Garfield, and then come Monday he puts in long hours and sometimes even closes his studio door.
If I had to find a logical explanation, that's a good one. What else changes on Monday? There would be more street trafific, particularly in the early morning as neighbors were leaving for work. Maybe that interupts his sleep. Garfield also fights with the mailman. Mail stops on Sunday, but resumes on Monday. He could be agitated over that, too.

my biggest problem is that I have to to a shitload of stuff for uni this semester, so I guess I will only finish the history book until Christmas which makes me a bit angry, wasting so much time on things I couldn't care less. Sure, the topics of seminars and the paper I have to write are not totally uninteresting, but they faint in comparison to my private studies.

Err, what? I specifically complain about multiple games being supposedly RPG/survival or even action adventure oriented and instead turning into FPS shitfests. Mass Effect 2 and Dead Space 3 I complained about for specifically the opposite reason which is because they took a a survival horror oriented and RPG oriented series and turned them both into horrible garbage shooters.

As for my other complaints, first of all you like trying to make it sound like your arguments are anything but extremely subjective. There is a difference in that I tend to focus more on I guess general artistry you could call it whereas you focus slightly more on technical aspects, but the great bulk of your arguments are subjective particularly when you stray away from talking technological and technical issues. But of course many of these things are going to be subjective, and saying that a game's story is complete shit can also be rendered down into a technical discussion pretty easily since writing itself has a lot of technical aspects to it, the most basic of which is grammar and simple spelling mistakes and that is not subjective in the slightest because such a mistake is inarguably wrong. I can put up with a certain level of spelling mistakes particularly an indie but man do I lose patience with it fast.

At some point I should probably explain the technical aspects behind why the writing is bad more often than I do though.

It is definitely an aircraft with a high workload. It never progressed past prototype because of that. It was proof of concept that a single-seat attack helicopter could work, but having a two-seater just works better.

The Shark is a lot easier to fly once you figure out the trimmer. You essentially fly it by adjusting the trimmer and letting it move itself. It's a very strange process and it is almost half SAS half trimmer. Blade strikes tend to happen when you fly too aggressively, but are never entirely avoidable, avoiding rotor overspeed doesn't hurt neither. They can just happen sometimes, a Ka-50 even killed an experienced pilot irl because of it. The lift problem is called 'Vortex Ring State' and it happens because you're descending downwards too fast. If you descend rapidly, you have to be moving in some direction otherwise you get caught in your own downwash and lose lift. To get out of it, push the stick forward so you move out of the downwash.

ABRIS it is primarily a moving map system and from memory isn't even integrated with the onboard navigation system but is a separate entity altogether. That said, it's more than waypoints and own-locations. You can create new waypoints and add them to flightplans if you want, switch between flightplans (useful if you need to divert), however it isn't integrated with the rest of the heli. The coolest thing it can do though is that it's integrated with the datalink. That means that if you're flying with multiple Ka-50s you can set it up so that you all appear on the ABRIS and you can share targets with each other on it as well. Watch some tutorials on it though, it's fiddly and requires a bit of setup.

It's really pleasant to fly at least in my opinion. The trimming is pretty straight forward and let's you fly steadily without the need to adjust it other than when hugging the ground. I just thought that I was doing something wrong when trimming because it always seems that the rotors get super close to each other on the right hand side. Maybe it's a feature. And yeah I always slow down at the first beep of rotor overspeed warning and still manage to clip those rotors off from time to time. There's also the overspeed warning I believe. That can usually be ignored if you just keep in mind that you might not have any lift if you'd suddenly need it. Haven't managed to go so fast that it would've have caused any significant loss of lift yet.

The vortex ring state was completely new to me. That sounds exactly like the issue I've been having and now I know how to avoid it. Thanks! The datalink is probably pretty nifty. Might reduce the workload of the pilots as you could delegate some stuff to your wingman. Of course even with two helis it's still not the same thing as a single two-seater would be. But least you're bringing a whole lot of firepower to the fight.

Do any Ernsts enjoy birding here? Recently I've been getting into it. About two weeks ago I bought a cheap bird feeder at tractor supply and hung it in my backyard. At first nothing bothered with the feeder, but slowly a number of birds began to take notice. Now I have chipping sparrows, house sparrows, house finches, northern cardinals, and gray catbirds visiting the feeder. I also leave a bowl of water on the ground for american robins and european starlings, which I change every morning. Unfortunately, I do not have a decent camera so I cannot provide images of my backyard visitors. Here are some photos I found using google images.

>golden oriols
We have several different oriols, and a major league baseball team is even named after one species(Baltimore), but we don't have the golden oriol. They're beautiful birds, I hope you don't lose them.

I was able to get pretty close to an Anhinga this morning, and captured these pictures. It's funny, because I just mentioned this bird in the Today thread last week. They're usually either swimming underwater, or on the opposite side of a pond too far away to get a good look at. This one was only a dozen feet away, and didn't move even after another nearby bird flew off. As you can see, he was holding his wings out to dry, but also moving his neck in a serpentine way(they're sometimes called the snakebird). I don't know if that motion means he had just swallowed a fish, or if there is another reason they do that.

Deliberate, targeted practice, rather than drawing what's in front of you without a goal.
Focus on one skill, be it values, composition, anatomy, draftsmanship, color, design, etc. Start a work with the deliberate intention of studying that skill, the work itself and the subject of the work only being grounds for experimentation and exploration.
That's the "what to do next" as far as improvement goes.

Regarding the "what to do" in an existential sense, you should have some philosophical idea of what art means to you, and where you want to go with it. What you want to bring forth to the world, what you want to explore through art, what you think art should be, etc. And that's your overarching journey as an artist, the thing that will guide your development. And said goal doesn't have to be anything grandiose, you can spend a lifetime and more unraveling one simple concept to an ever exceeding level of finesse. Just find that one thing about reality or experience of being that resonates with you, and work towards required level of mastery to convey it in image.

Ernst, do you have too much free time? Do you use a browser to surf the web? Do you like sci-fi? Then I have just the thing for you!

https://galaxytrek.com/

It's a browsergame (so, you can play it from any browser), it's mostly text based. You manage planets, they produce ressources, which you use to build ships, to get more ressources. It's a persistent universe which is even active when you're not online, and since it's multiplayer, you can attack other players (and they can attack you). Pictures related, it's the game.

I will register a new account in a few hours, and I'd like other Ernsts to join me (it's way more fun if more people are playing). It's completely free (well, there are paid features, but you can unlock them with one click/day easily). We could form an alliance (to be named, preferably something Ernst-related).

Old thread: >>27153 - radio home page: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz:8000

This is the Radio Ernstiwan thread, the radio made by Ernst for Ernst. If you want to tune in you need a media player which is able to handle network streams, VLC, Winamp and many others do the job. Just go to the radio home page and click one of the links in the upper right corner when a stream is on (pic 4 related). If you want to do a stream yourself, then you need a software which is able to create an audio stream and direct to an Icecast-server, because that is what the radio is running on. The most popular setup is to use your butt :-D (https://sourceforge.net/projects/butt/), and in case you need to have more than one input channel you want to stream (for example microphone and music) to use butt and VoiceMeeter combined: https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/ - with VoiceMeeter you can define multiple input channels and direct them to a virtual output channel, which butt recognizes.

For streaming you'll also need an account. Radio Ernstiwan has a public stream which everyone can use when it's not occupied (see below). There are also personal accounts, which can be used by streamers to ensure that they can't be blocked by someone else. In case you want to get a personal account, write a mail to ernstiwan at protonmail.ch, our dedicated radio helpdesk team will immediatly start working on your request! There is also a calendar for announcing streams, you'll have to create an account at https://zoho.eu/ and then write a mail to the above address and tell me your registration mail, so I can authorize you for the radio calendar. Not the most elegant solution, but so far it's the best we got. Since the calendar is intended for collaboration, everyone who has an account will be able to see your registration mail address, so don't use your private mail (which you probably shouldn't do anyway). The calendar is linked on the radio main page. There are no restrictions in what to stream, it can be music, any kind of readings, podcasts, you while munching on your cornflakes, whatever. You like it: chances are everyone else also likes it!
