  • Soulsbane said:Just sending a big Hey out there to CP. I am looking at my 50th Thunderbolt Tourney mug and smiling :-) I'm still alive and kicking in Iowa. Does anyone play Eve Online? Gnight, Soulsbane #CP#J I have an account that's gone i…
  • I'm fiddling with the demo now. So far, it's on par with the Combat Mission games/demos I've played from Battlefront. Note that I'm playing on a laptop... :)
  • Anyone else heard of DropTeam from BattleFront? http://battlefront.com/products/dropteam/ Looks kinda cool. Cross platform, team based... Could be fun (and honorable!)
  • Hailz! Just a quickie FYI: Ratbert lives, as does LadyBert and our two offspring (yes, we had a daughter 6 months ago). Oh, by "moving", I mean moving. From L.A. to Cedar Rapids, IA. LadyBert has quit her job (couldn't reconcile the title "coor…
  • Re: Litigation Looms Over Litterling Lawyer After Lark Don't you have trained monkeys to perform that service? We tried, but you never could get past the doody-flinging stage...
  • Re: Pop up ads help!!! Also check out... The Proxomitron
  • Re: Lest I leave any misconceptions (except for emulation ala wine, but that's not going to cut it for games, which is probably what most people would want to do with it ;) ) Ummm... Wine and WineX can actually perform *better* than a native Wind…
  • Re: Gah... as a native New Orleanian... you can't spell? Just to clarify... Society for Creative Anachronism? Yes. Managed to not get myself broken too badly while beating others with sticks... Of course, there's also something to be said for dan…
  • Re: Gah... as a native New Orleanian... you can't spell? Ummm... New Orleans is in Louisiana, which has historically battled Alabama and Mississippi for 50th ranked educational systems. California seems to have cheated with Prop 13... ;^) Gimmie a…
  • As a native New Orleanian... It's a "soft drink". As opposed to a "hard drink", that contains alchohol. All "pops", "sodas", whatever are soft drinks. The funniest thing I every heard was in line at a food service counter in Pittsburg (failed atte…
  • Pepsi Twist: The only way to make Pepsi drinkable... [nt]
  • [b]Re: Another Ethereal Greeting[/b] [quote] Hello Petis. You might want to stop buy http://www.mythvillage.org/ for a Total Codex type fix. See you on Marius.net. p.s.: Twist someone's arm to get the D&D license back for crpg's! [/quote] He…
  • Re: NWN: a bad sign... Carch: I'm pretty sure this means that there may not be support for people who try to create custom monsters, or tilesets (such as a desert tileset) that don't ship with the game. In terms of how players will use modules crea…
  • Re: Neverwinter Nights Sadly,the toolset is currently slated for Windows-only release, which makes this a lot less attractive to those of us on alternative platforms. True... As I mentioned (I did mention it, right?), the Linux version of the too…
  • I don't know how many of you are tracking/anticipating BioWare's latest D&D RPG, Neverwinter Nights, nor how many of those people were disturbed/alarmed by the lawsuit against their publisher, Interplay, and how many of *those* people aren't pay…
  • Free Advice: Hailz! Yo! Freewill! You can give me all the free, usefull advice you want and I promise I won't spit in your face. N8 Use a spellchecker. It's "useful". ;^) You're a grumpy old man and your facial hair tickles, but we love you al…
  • Just be careful... Ignore him if he begins chanting "Hold the Hill!" I still get giggles remembering that magical, mystical (cold as a witch's teat) ECG I... OK, I occasionally get the cold sweats thinking about the problems I had with my PC and t…
  • Re: Waitaminute... That's it for me, I'm outta this thread for good. Mark Pansy! Oh, Pansy! Your father was a hamster and your mother smelled of elderberries! I fart in your general direction! PHHTTTTTPPPPPPBBT! Come back! It's no fun if you …
  • Re: Waitaminute... thanks that summarizes it I guess :)...but really my foray into this rant was simply a link to an article which discusses how current copyright laws may hurt culture. I never said anything against the idea of copyright or copyrig…
  • Re: Waitaminute... In no way am I putting down copyrights and their use. I am just suspect of what the current laws are and what they have been twisted into very recently - both by whom and what their intention is in changing these laws. VJ Then …
  • ::Mourns the death of subtle humor:: Listen you fascist demagogue of intellectual elitism (OMG! ZAG IZ LEET BRAIN NAZI!), just because you want to strangle the free exchange of ideas and information doesn't mean you get to defend bottom-feeding scu…
  • Waitaminute... ::Opens new can of Bloodrain Bait(tm):: Aren't you an IP lawyer? Don't you have a vested interest in maintaining copyright law? The more obtuse and complicated, the greater the need for you learned legal eagles to translate the mora…
  • Re: Now look... English food gets a bad rap because it's always compared to French cuisine. Traditional English food can't hold a candle to the frogs in terms of sophistication, but it's outstanding when done well. It's comfort food, essentially. A…
  • No, it's not... English food still blows chunks (or will cause a normal human to blow chunks). However, the English themselves are beginning to eat better food. All that empire building has finally started to pay off. Chicken Curry (with *real* Ind…
  • Hopefully ignoring the local "cuisine"... [nt]
  • Unless... Fine and dandy. But if/when the patch is released, and if/when most of the bugs are fixed, *then* buy it. Hopefully, the publisher's quarter sucks, but they get the message that the consuming (spending) public want a bug-free product (or …
  • I don't want to know where yours has been... *shudder* [nt]
  • Re: Ineeda Content Management System... Been looking for the same thing... *I* still haven't found it, despite finding nifty portal systems like PHPNuke and others. Let me know if you find anything... DanTheMan.com
