I keep catching these threads early. How's December treating everyone? Anybody received their gifts yet?
And, for a point of discussion once kind anon finishes his story time; favourite Christmas songs? Let's make a /co/ playlist!

>once kind anon finishes his story time

My bad, i should've said it was done. I forgot that the last page doesn't say END.
>>
Reposting, then off to another thrilling day at work:
For those of you who weren't here the last couple of years, I did various Christmas contests and would gift someone who I arbitrarily chose as the winner. I intend to keep that tradition alive this year.

I decided to get started with a (relatively) big challenge: Write a Christmas story featuring /co/ characters. Maybe Lex Luthor decides he hates Santa because he challenges human superiority. Maybe the Flash has to sub in for Santa one night and deliver presents around the world (has that been done? That must have been done before). It doesn't have to be long, just something short and simple, but the more Christmas special-y the better. If you're a drawfag and want to draw it out instead, that's fine too.

Send your submissions to [email protected] Or you can post them in the thread, but just make sure I see them. I'll give everyone a week to put something together, so don't feel rushed. At the end I'll share them with the thread and crown a winner. Make sure to include your wishlist with your submission.
>>
Good night /co/
>>
>>77866334
G'night, anon. :)
>>
>>77866334
Good morning!
>>
>>77866218
>I'll give everyone a week
You should just put a real due date on this now.
Would you prefer DC or Marvel?
>>
I got well and truly shafted this year. Losing my job on Christmas day and my son was recently born. Shitcakes. I'm getting a fat redundancy payoff, so .co.uk folks make sure your addresses are in order. I have no idea what the future brings but these threads made xmas the last couple of years enjoyable. Also, has anyone else noticed that Amazon now shows the wishlists of people you've past gifted on a sidebar? I've got minifigs and a few others on it. Never noticed it before.
>>
Well, it seems quiet at the moment so I'm going to dump a storytime. One of my faves - Sin City, Silent Night.

Snowed a little bit last week, no accumulation though.

No snow here but it's early days. All I'm getting is rain. Getting a lot colder though.

Aww that sucks, hope she's better now. Even if you don't have time to play, if you drop your steam I'll send a copy your way for when it gets better!

>>77867870
There was a really nice, heavy fall of perfect packing snow a week ago, but it's long melted and now it's just grey and rainy.
>>
>>77867972
She's getting better thanks. Just a lot of worry but the pay off is worth it. She played Isaac more than me and got Plat God. And that's very kind of you, thank you, but you don't have to do that. Plus we're playing it on PS4 lol

Still pretty christmasy around here though I guess.

Hey /co/, what's your list of recommended Christmas classics for each year? I figure the obvious ones such as Grinch and Nightmare Before Christmas are on there, but I'd like to know what movies you guys always watch around Christmas time.
>>
That list sure is taking a while to get updated.
>>
>>77870719
Jingle All The Way and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation are musts for me. And Santa's Slay during the 13 Days of Creepmas.
>>
>>77871252
If you like Santa's Slay check out Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, and A Christmas Horror Story, which we watched last week and it's gonna be a staple in my lists in the future
>>
>>77870719
Jingle All the Way is my favorite Christmas movie of all time.

Hey Scribs, since Samurai Jack just got announced to be returning next year, think you could do something involving Jack? Doesn't matter what he's doing, just as long as it involves Jack (and possibly Aku if you can make Mr. GREAT FLAMING EYEBROWS work).

It was last updated yesterday. If you want you can go to the last thread and manually cross-reference the list with the codes that were gifted in-thread. I'd just wait and hope the guy in charge does his job though.

"Muppet Christmas Carol", maybe Alistair Sim's "Scrooge" if I'm feeling in a classical mood. Which reminds me, I still haven't watched Patrick Stewart's "A Christmas Carol", and I've had the DVD for two years...
>>
Waiting for my paycheck is driving me nuts. Maybe these threads will be more active by then, though.

>>77870719
I always end up watching Jingle All the Way, Scrooged, and Year Without A Santa Claus. And when I can swing it, I like to drink and watch the Star Wars special with friends. I'm super excited for our upcoming viewing, hopefully I can get work off for that night.

See, I'm such a comics snob that I rank my favourite Christmas comics:

>1 - the Alan Scott story in Comic Cavalcade #9
>2 - The Christmas Spirit by Will Eisner
>3 - "Tis The Season" in Uncle Scrooge #251
>4 - "Christmas in Shacktown"
>5 - Green Lantern: Mosaic #9
>= - Elvira's Haunted Holiday Special
>= - Batman: Noel

I've been adding all of the lists I can find to the full list and been removing any lists with purchases since 11/27 not just when someone posts that they've bought for the list. If you share your list number again I'll confirm you're in the full list and have been gifted, or you can look in the full list yourself http://pastebin.com/wz57AeHb

Good news boobs! I have almost finished the first puzzle, it will be fresh as hell so I hope you brought your thinking caps. I really got creative with parts of this. In the mean time why don't you set up your systems to play and read up how to solve the last puzzles I did

I check all the wishlists for purchases at least once a day, I then remove all of the wishlists that have had purchases on them since 11/27/15 and remove them from the ungifted list. If I happen to see someone post that they've purchased a gift for a someone I'll check and make sure something is showing as purchased then I'll pull them from the ungifted list.

Your puzzles are always lots of fun. Way over my head, but fun to watch people try. Looking forward to seeing what you do this year.
>>
>>77879024
I know it's happened, and in the past we've caught them and I put them in the naughty list, but there's not much I can do other then people posting that they've bought for them.

But I try to keep it as organized as I can without us trying to pair up people or doing an email pool and both of those ideas have been shot down in the past.
>>
>>77879042
Right, but Elusive was saying if someone says they've bought something for someone he checks the purchased list to make sure there something there before pulling them from the ungifted list. I'm just saying he could check and find nothing because it's been deleted. Granted I hope no one does it, it has happened.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Muppet Christmas Carol. I gave fond memories of watching them with my cousins, since Christmases were really the only times I got to see any of them.

So >>77865388 is back and giving a little gift (I keep saying I will stop until Xmas week, but it's too much fun), so consider 235AQ8RR6QFO6 gifted! I know it's just a something-something, but you asked for something that gave me nostalgia so hard I couldn't help gifting it. Merry Christmas /co/mrade.

You'll know when something arrives at your door step. Or you can keep an eye on the threads/pastebin to see when/if your list is posted or is removed from the ungifted pastebin. It doesn't guarentee a gift, we had 15 ungifted people last year.

Really just depends. We don't have a list closure so people keep getting added as time goes on. So the list can shrink and grow quite a bit! You can also just be unlucky or have gifts that no one really wants to give. Best advice is to keep your wishes under $20, post early, and of course partake in the Christmas joy since it's better to give than receive! Like hell it is, it's all about the presents son.

Paypal should work just fine.

>>77879675
you can use a uk debit card, or paypal card but not normal paypal
>>
>>77879675
It can, I gifted several Anons in Canuckleduh and Europe in the past. It will be converted to local currency in the final charge. It'd also be good to look and double check that your card issuer doesn't do anything funny with currency change like adding fees, though I'm pretty sure Amazon just charges in your currency and then middlemans it.

This is damn good news. A disturbing lack of UK anons besides myself and the 4/5 peeps I've gifted thus far made me contemplate expanding my wishlist perving to new and uncharted shores. I'm very happy that I can.
>>
How do you get the link for your wishlist?
>>
>>77879478
looking back over the wishlist the guy with one textbook, it was £215.00 so yea.... I don't even think Santasied would buy that for them.

And I do keep an eye out for people from previous years ungifted list and if they show up and remain on this years ungifted. I'll point any out down the road to try to make sure they don't keep not getting gifts. But it does make me wonder because we've had people post saying they've not been gifted any of the times they've entered but we've only had like 5 people that were on the ungifted list last year that were also the year before and I made sure they got something before it was over.

The tools download will give you a prebundled setup that includes the basic tools for file analysis/gpg to decrypt the file. The Puzzle link is the actual puzzle box. You need to find it's password then decrypt it with gpg and then you'll get a zip file which contains a hint and another encrypted file. Keep doing this until you reach the end! You can also set up your own linux install which generally makes things easier, but is outside the scope me writing up for you.

Japan. Christmas here is more of a boyfriend/girlfriend thing than family based, that's what New Year is for.

It would be okay if I could nip to Tokyo and meet fellow expats, but I can't due to the work schedule. Plus I kind of live in the middle of nowhere!

I get compulsary 9 days off for New Year which I was planning to either go home to Britbongland to meet family or do fun expat things, but realised it's too much money to justify going to see family just for barely a week, and my friends get waaay more time off than me so are going away for nearly a month from just before Christmas.

I wouldn't feel right posting my wishlist thingy, financially I'm in quite a good place right now just a tad lonely at times.

Might leave early next year so it's not all bad! I do like /co/ times though.

pathtogpgfile literally means you have to substitute where the gpg file lives aka if you dropped it in C:\tmp\gpgfile.gpg you write gpg -d C:\tmp\gpgfile.gpg to decrypt and it will prompt for a password.

>>77881910
It's in the readme. First you download the tools. Then you run the install.bat after which a window is opened and you'll see a tools folder/run.bat, hit run.bat and you've got a set up cmd prompt ready to go.

>>77881918
Hope you figured it out.

>>77882363
Nope the image provided in the post is fine. I did some testing this year and came up with something clever.


And finally in a fixed post

Why hello Batboobs. I know you think this is the time to celebrate, but what for? After all you'll never be as clever as me and you'll certainly never get a present from me. This first one is going to be quite a doozy. Sometimes the simplest DIMENSIONS can be the most complex!

Japananon here. That was strangely beautiful!

>>77882877

My hours arent as crazy as the Japanese staff, but my company is renowned for being almost slavedriver like for its foreigner staff because they know the turnover is so high so they milk us for all we are worth!

I get to work around 12.30 normally, finish around 9.45 weekdays, with a 40minute break, then on weekends start at 9 and finish around 7, same break, with Monday/Tuesday usually off unless something changes.

Vacation wise I get nothing for the first 6 months, then 10 days in theory that I have to ask for permission to use, with no public holidays off and no weekends off.

I'll most likely be leaving at the latest March, 6 months will be enough for me, maybe earlier if I've really had enough!

The main reason I stay is that for the japanese staff their job is usually more stressful than mine and if I leave them then they will have a horrible time getting a replacement. I'm too loyal for that, for now!

It's your old pal Hank! Last night we had some laughs solving an inordinately difficult Christmas cryptogram for a fabulous prize!

No prize tonight, but I'm putting together some special puzzles for more giveaways in the near future!

EWDI JW TELKV YKNJY'F DJXL, ORKKB W JKLJA GWRRJD OXDB, ZUITI K GEXUIT VKJY UIT MKML, NF W PWFEDM TKM XNO UDB.

A = Y...always
W = A...sometimes

I ask that you spoiler the solution when you get it for late players.
Otherwise, hop in your hammock and have fun!!

Not a huge comics person (sadly, I'm from the cartoons side of /co/), but I'm down to do the Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas one!

I plan on it one day. I've heard nothing but good for Rare Exports.

Where do you find Treevenge? I couldn't find it last year, pissed me off so much.

If you google Treevenge the vimeo link should come right up. It's also on youtube I think. It's not like a DVD or anything like that, just an online short about 15-20 minutes long.

Hmmm. give me a few minutes
