Yep, Lert's off playing with the World of Warplanes developers.  Maybe he convinced them to go with 2.0 which is vastly more fun than getting farmed in 1.9.

 

Lert working with WG

If you need to summon @Lert just start a thread on how much fun Pocket Battleships are ... he'll be there.

It's rare to see @Lert in formal wear with those white gloves on; did you catch him at a wedding? After he had hit the bar?

Good to know, I thought he started working with a new company in RL?

Not sure where I heard that from. I think he's a fork lift/crane operator, or something along those lines.

(Also @Cruxdei since he posted a laser pointer as well)

Actually, laser pointers are very bad toys for a cat. Yeah it might look like fun having the cat chase the dot around, but he'll never catch it, and for a cat the joy in playing a hunt type game is in catching the prey. It releases endorphins that make the cat happy. Playing with a laser pointer (and thus never actually 'catching' the prey) will leave a cat frustrated rather than happy. If you want to actually make the cat happy, play with something physical that he can actually catch and let him catch it about 30% of the time. This will keep the endorphins flowing and the cat happy and interested.

I'm a (former) forklift driver on disabled benefit. I recently started a new part time job in a company for sonic core sample drilling, assembling parts for those sonic sample drilling rigs.

Best cat toy ever:

Materials Needed:  Between 1M and 1.5M of string and half a sheet of paper.
Assembly:  Twist the piece of paper into a crumpled cylinder and pinch it tight around the middle.  Fasten the piece of string around the slender middle.
Use:  Hold the string by the long end and drag the piece of paper slowly across the floor in jerky motions.  When your cat lunges for it, tug the string into the air quickly.  Your cat will soon catch on and the acrobatics to catch this paper bird are quite the marvel to behold.

^ Can confirm. Me, I paid a few euros to get a pre-made one of similar idea, with the 'paper bird' being a fluffy fabric thing with a crinkling material inside that makes a crunchy sound when my cat catches it. But, yeah, the acrobatics are a sight to behold.

A large, patient dog.  We had a Labrador who would slowly wag his tail, get the cat mesmerized, then yank it away.  They played like that for hours.

Sometimes all an anti-social cat needs is a kitten.

One of my cats plays with a laser pointer.  My first cat and my current other cat stare at me like I am idiot for trying to play with them with it.  They seem to know...

Not to mention the light from the pointer can accidentally shine on the cat's eyes... and I would believe that would be dangerous for the cat's well-being.
