Re: Sleep-time holodeck experiences

Two dreams I remember from last night. In the first, I was tired of being bullied by some young woman. So I grabbed her face and dragged her around and told her that if she continued to harass me, I'd throw her to the ground and beat her. She tried to speak but I kept shouting her down. She eventual...

I took it to mean that suffer-cait was demonstrating how one would buy a house for x-amount, and that action cannot be undone. Then that person would try to sell the house for y-amount, but that might not be attainable. The house might end up being sold for a loss, not a profit. It was actually boug...

A bug flew into my ear today. It was too deep in my ear for me to do anything about it. It eventually came out after about an hour. It was quite distressing. I seem to have suffered no harm.

There is currently a very painful sore on the underside of my tongue. Talking makes it hurt, eating makes it hurt, and sometimes I experience a tremendous pain for several seconds even when I'm not talking or eating.

Yeah they are pretty much the same game. Sui Generis was supposed to be on a wider scale I think, like an open-world kind of game, but Exanima was just a dungeon crawler with the same engine I guess.
