Forums using Feedly, MOMBAT and painting in bed.

Perhaps this should be three separate posts, but my track record is such that if I don't post about it while I'm thinking about it it will be lost in the sands of time.

Forums on Feedly

Those of you who frequent the Two Hour Wargames Yahoo Group will know that, with the switch to neo, there were some things that frustrated the moderators enough to set up a forum. I was one of the many who was annoyed by the way neo seemed to be garbling messages but didn't know how I was going to keep up with the Forum in the same way, since groups emails me with each new message.

Ed sent through a message saying that one could use Feedly to stay updated. Now as you know I use it, with varying levels of success, so I thought I'd give it a try.



So I typed the Forum address into the feed search bar and it was done. I made a category called forums and I will probably start adding some others on there that I am a member of but fell away from because I felt it was too time consuming and locking me to my computer.

MOMBAT

Bob Cordery and Archduke Piccolo have been working on some updates to the MOMBAT rules recently. You may recall that I threw in my version Memoir Third Age 3019. I'll have to take a look at what I wrote and update it to this new system, as it just makes too much sense not to.

Paintig in bed

Last night I reclaimed the plastic kids craft tray that I had bought for sitting in bed watching tv with the wife for our evening "quality time". Worked pretty well but I need to remember to do something about lighting and magnification. In the light of day this morning there are quite a few missed spots, but I got 14 more figures flesh blocked out, so I'll take any progress I can get.

  1. A lot of people talk about Feedly, but I have no idea what it is or how to use it.

    Since the Hubby's health has deteriorated so much I am unable to paint until after midnight, so I've taken to painting in my own bed after I get the Hubby settled for the night (he requires a hospital bed and a special room). My dogs, who pile on the bed with me, have gotten quite used to the idea that they are never to scratch, lick or otherwise move when mommy is painting faces!

    1. Hi Anne. Feedly is a feed reader that I used to replace Google Reader when it disappeared. It mostly works well but doesn't update blogs I follow unless I manually update each one. I can barely color block in bed but it's a start.

    1. Thanks Rodger, she only made fun of me the usual amount. If I made a mess I'd be in for it but I look at it as the same as doing it in the living room (I mean the painting you dirty buggers), we just happen to watch in the bedroom because the kids have commandeered the downstairs television.

  4. I have to consider myself lucky to have my paintnig table 20cm far from the bed... just have to direct the light oini the right way and that's good !
    I couldn't get myself to even think about painting in bed, I'm so clumsy it would be a failure just after 5 minutes...

    If you have the nerves to be in bed and want to paint you're my hero, but if you actually paint something like eyes ordetails of the sort while in bed, then you're a legend.

    1. Right now only very basic painting. I just thought I needed some way to keep progressing. Each day slips by with the best of intentions, but little painting.
