-You- were complaining that you didn't have enough space for physical books.  I find this amusing because the vast majority of producers of physical books throughout history would've sold their soul to the devil for a modern $50 printer/scanner.

Akaramu, what you have described is very sketchy. Personally, I would drop them like a sack of rocks.

If you absolutely need to do business with them, submit the .pdf form electronically or send back a filled out hard copy then follow JdM's advice below.

Agree to it, but tell them you need backpay up front.  Then once they pay, you can decide if you really wanna go through with the new project.  If you are gonna go through with the new one, might be wise to demand half pay for that up front, too.

One thing I'd like to see in arm is more people focusing on how to make the game intriguing, by filling
it with murder, betrayal, and corruption, instead of arguing about how combat isn't powerful enough.

Adobe acrobat has a version that allows you to edit pdfs. Or, I just found this site that lets you edit pdfs online: https://www.pdfpro.co/

I've never personally used the online one, but you should definitely get paid for your work.

I looked into this. It's not free though, is it?

Adobe does have a free trial on one of their PDF making packages, I used it briefly but it was only for a week. It was useful while it lasted but maybe you're looking for something more long term.

Some word processor applications open up PDF documents and allow them to be edited and saved (depending on if the PDF is "open" or not).

As part of efforts to flip my congressional district from red to blue in the midterms, Democratic congress members from other districts have held town halls in my district to discuss issues like healthcare and DACA, which our sitting congressman won't really tackle.

A group of white supremacists followed our guest congressman from his district to cause trouble and disrupt the event.

Any videos or articles on this? Nazis breaking a disabled man's arm is something that would be prime news right now.

A local affiliate had a reporter on site but nobody has picked it up.

It's troubling, because it makes me wonder how often this shit happens and goes unreported.

Considering how often even hoaxes get picked up for national headlines even before any semblance of confirmation of authenticity, I would say not often.

What about the police report filed? Or cell-phone videos?

My neighbor turns up the volume of his TV to the point where I understand every word being said. Through a wall.  >:(

He also coughs and yawns and clears his throat with the sound volume of a lion's roar. You wouldn't believe it's possible to yawn loudly until you hear it through an apartment wall.

I wanted to watch the new Critical Role One-Shot, but since we steal internet from our neighbor and they're BAD AT INTERNET it kept going out.

Always during interesting scenes.

I haven't had a hardline into my computer in AGES, and its stopped me from most online gaming.

I saw someone turn to ashes. I saw someone turn into a dusty shroom. That's when nothing came back.

I don't get to play DnD. I haven't played Arm in a week+. Critical Role is how I scratch that RP/Tabletop itch.

Hey, man. Nobody said you cant RP in real life.

The idea of someone adopting a 'rinthi accent in a stuffy office building, or honestly any other typical work environment amuses me.

Be our hero. Videotape reactions.

As if breaking two pcs wasnt enough i have now somehow ruined the 3rd. 3 computers down all within the span of a year and the problem is always something too expensive to fix or replace. Also... The fucking failing hard drives oh my god. Is it not bad enought to just break? You have to delete all my shit too?

I seriously just fucking can not deal with this shit anymore. Stuck doing everything on this piece of garbage tablet that is barely functional.

Whatever change happened to prevent the "stay logged in" feature of the GDB from actually keeping me logged in is infuriating, especially when browsing on mobile.

Earlier this morning, it literally logged me out when clicking from one page to another.

I get like 30 mins per login. Or maybe the hour idk for sure. But it definately does not keep me logged in.

It is however better than the staying logged in and having to clear the security of thepage each time.

Might be a feature of your guysí browsers?  I havenít noticed a change.
You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.
