It's a skin for the torso of the Tron player model in Tron 2.0.  Unfortunately, I recently discovered a higher res version of the same texture under a different file name.  I might have to do the skin again  O_o  It should at least go faster now that I know exactly how to do what I want to do, and it may even help with the detail that's lost in-game.

Heh I bet "The Pink Swastika" would be an interesting read at least.  I've always liked contemplating how older generations and past societies handled the more taboo aspects of sexuality.  Anyhow, here's a completely unrelated picture, mostly because I got a kick out of it, and I'm also fulfilling Shambler's wish from earlier. :)

While I can't read Japanese, the comic is referring to an episode where Swan (lead engineer of the Dekaranger Earth division,) gets captured by the guy who slaughtered Doggie Kruger's (guy on the right,) family.  (It's been a while since I've seen that episode, but I'm fairly certain that's how it went.)  Anyhow, at the end of each episode, there is some kind of extra commentary about a particular aspect of the show.  I'm pretty sure that episode revolved around how the hell Doggie could fit his muzzle into a human-shaped helmet.  And they kind of side-stepped the answer in a joking manner.  Well this comic expands upon the matter. :)

You guys are so mean. :[
Well, I don't know about the picture I posted, but my friends and I do that kind of stuff out of "love" so to speak.  For instance, in high school, we used to sabotage each others' backpacks.  If there were books in the back section  and a folder in the front section, we'd put the folder in the back and the books in the front.  If we had enough time, we'd also cross the support straps and turn the backpack inside out.  It just basically comes down to whether or not everyone in the group is ok with it.  If any one person in the group wasn't ok with something, we wouldn't do it.  I'm not sure if that's the case with the picture I posted above, but I somewhat suspect it is due to the overelaborate nature of the sabotage.  That and it's just empty boxes and cans.

Trust me, it's real.  It's a "wall hanger" for sure, not a fighting sword like you'd find at http://www.angustrimdirect.com/ (http://www.angustrimdirect.com/) but it's definitely a real item.  Wall-hanger swords have become quite popular of late, especially since the release of the Lord of the Rings films.  That Disney has a sword from one of their movies does not surprise me in the least, considering that Disney has taken marketing to extremes nobody else ever dreamed to.

God that was off-topic.

The genious of the flower:

Sarge was walking one day when suddenly, he finds a flower filled with dust. SO he picks it up and cleans it. Suddenly, a genious of a flower shows up. He says :

- I'm a genious of a flower.

Sarge replies with an unfinished sentence:

- I wish for...
- Who said I could give you any wish? I'm just a genious of a flower! - says the genious;
- But you are a genious! You're supposed to give wishes!
- There are a lot of types of genious : I'm a genious of a flower, therefore I'm a genious in Biology!

Sarge stares at the genious and shoots him.

THE END

A small wooden boat
floating quite alone
a small sailing vessel
being tossed yet free to roam

the moon shines down on you
reflecting off your sides
tomorrow seems elusive
you just wait for the tides

and then will come the morning
and riding on the toss
and you know that your freedom
is someone else's loss...

Was himself when his gun would discharge!

American McGee's ALICE would make a really good movie, if done well.

I've just finished playing it, over the last 10 days or so, and basically have played little else since starting it. took my whole attention.

   :offtopic: Last night I did a gig with my band, and some fans got thier capri stuck on the lawn of a vicarage next door to the hall. there was a 45 degree bank around the lawn, and they backed the car down it onto the sunken lawn while trying to do a 3 point turn....

We all pushed etc, but the driver was out of his head, the 6 girls with him were all drunk and shouting, and we managed to get the 20 year old car back down onto the lawn, but it caught fire underneath! due to a broken fual line, I suspect.  At this point (about 2 a.m.) the vicar woke up, came out and started shouting at every body, while in a dressing gown, and I thought it better to run than be arrested for lots of things, including substance/drink, etc and an overloaded car, so drove off as quick as I could, with Helen the Goth at the wheel and an entire P.A. system and 2 guitars, 2 banjos and a mandola in the back.
I'll post an update when I hear from my fiddle player, if the car didn't blow up.

Who says live music is dead? :offtopic:

Update....

It seems that the 'fire' under the car was the seat belt hanging out the door, reflecting the street lights.

they managed to get the car off the grass on about the 10th attempt, just before the law arrived. as this is england, no body got shot.

Exactly. What I said wasn't meant as a dig at the USA, I would like things to be a little more even here, as at the moment only the bad guys carry guns.

we say - outlaw guns, and only outlaws will have guns.  cos they know that a man won't be packing a piece, cowards often attack and mug innocent people. if it was up to me, we'd all carry 38's. I know I would. a S&W with a 2" barrel would suit me for daily use.

Anyway..my fiddle player is still alive, (and is excelent) which means I don't have to look for a new one!

Uh... that's how "accidental" shootings happen.  Read the Rules of Safe Firearm Handling. (http://www.mcsm.org/basic.html)  I can see several he's broken here:

Quote
Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction
That is clearly not a safe direction.

Quote
Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
His finger is right on the trigger.

Quote
Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use
The exception to this rule is when keeping a gun handy for defensive purposes.  However, this scenario is clearly not a defensive situation.  Not only that, he's got a magazine in the gun, which may or may not have rounds.  Even if it did not, there could be one in the chamber.  Guns should always be considered "loaded" until you've cleared the weapon yourself, and then only so long as the weapon is in your immediate control.  Once you set the weapon down or hand it to someone else, it should be considered loaded again.  Always check the chamber.

Now let's skip down to the other rules that apply here:

Quote
Know how to use the gun safely
This is not a safe way to use a gun.

Quote
Know your target and what is beyond
Target here means "what you are trying to kill."  Unless he's trying to kill his friend, this is not the proper application of this rule.

Quote
Wear eye and ear protection as appropriate
If the gun goes "bang", his ears are going to ring for a week, and at that range he'll probably get bone splinters thrown into his eyes.

Quote
Store guns so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons
I don't think this person should be authorized to handle ANY weapon.

I know this is supposed to be a humorous posting, but it's stupid, juvenile behavior like this picture portrays that gets people killed and gives ammunition (no pun) to anti-gun people in their jihad against firearms ownership.  Unless that weapon is a very realistic airsoft rifle that shoots harmless plastic pellets - and they do exist - consider this a prime example of exactly what not to do with a firearm.[/color]  :!:

No, I really mean the spoon, fork hybrid. Not F-U-C-K.

Salad is good, fire is bad.

Toss my Salad.

Toss my cruttons.

Almost looks like the word curtains.

Which has something to do with an Iron curtain.

Which as something to do with the color red.

Thus, my thesis.

And lo and behold, one id software released a collection pack of awesomeness and value ...ness which a young, impressionable man purchased.

And the young, impressionable man was impressed and thus researched the series.

And thus the young, impressionable man got a job and all was good.

But the young, impressionable man knew his wanton desire for new experiences could not be satiated by pocket change alone.

And thus the young, impressionable man sought out user created content.

And thus the young, impressionable man stumbled upon Generations and SOG.

And the rest is history ...much like the aforementioned history but with a half-assed attempt to bring the young, impressionable man's writing to an end.

Besides, I'm wasting time typing this when I could be procrastinating my English assignment and playing Metroid Prime: Hunters.

Post by: Lopson on 2006-03-23, 10:47
So there I was walking around when a gnome comes over me and asks : "WHER DA THUNDER ARE THOU DOUNUTS?". Then I stop walking and think about it. I mean, seriously, whre could his doughnuts be? In the garden? In the classroom? In the Gym? In the Pool? But then I realized something : What if doughnuts are just a product of our imagination? What if that gnome is right and they don't exist? Wouldn't that suck? But then again, suck what?  A lollypop? An icecream? A potatoe? Of course that while I was thinking, the gnome was getting more and more impatient for my answer, which after 2 minutes of reflection, I gave it to him : "ZA BEAR IS GONE FOR A BASKET LUNCH! GO GET THOSE TERRORISTS!". He understood what I said to him and flew away into Mars. Me and Myself then, at that moment, realized that gnomes are martian, and that the monsters in DooM3 are simply mutations of gnomes. We went Hellzapoppin' ! I screamed about flying icecreams and the person next to me in the classroom exploded in flames. Fortunately, we were in a laboratory with fire extinguisers, and that quite helped the whole class. In the end of the lesson, i was in the main hall of the school, when a bunch of Paranormal Ninjas break the ceiling's window and float their way down to the floor. Of course that the whole school got excited to see a bunch of ninjas. The go into the Teacher's room and say : "Those who practice the Devil's works must be covered in Sugar, Sipce and Everything Nice!". For the next 30 minutes, we could only hear screams from inside of the teacher's room. After that, the ninjas come out of that damned room and scream out loud : "I WANT A POKEMON!", and ZAP! They were telefragged by hamsters. This hamster was huge and was eating a Omelete du Fromage that he had bought back in France. He explains that he wanted a bathroom with toilet paper, but there isn't one in my school, so he ran into the Gym and discharged this weird yellow thing out of his nose. This yellow paste rises and says : "I SHALL not CONQUER THE WORLD, FOR I AM the yellow goo!". We went "OK, so this might be interesting", but there was a girl that grabbed this yellow goo and hugs it while screaming this horrible japanese thing "KAWAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII". Man, I tell ya, even the hamster went crazy! He started to bite everyone except me. Then, obviously, everyone got rage attacks, and it was up to me to save the school once more. I went back home to ask for help to my Dog, and heis reaction was to grab a cigar, pufs some and says : "Whof, whowhowhof!". We go to the hattic to grab our 7-pided Chocolate Minigun right out of Predator, and of we were to school. Needless to say, it was a mess in there. We just entered shooting against everything, even the ninjas. When we got to the Gym, the hamster screamed : "I WILL CONQUER THIS DAMNED PLANET, AND THEN QUAKE WILL FALL BEFORE MY REAR!". We had this enormous fight because he was cheating during our fight. BTW this fight was conducted through cards. We won, and then the gnome from Mars returns and says : "Congratulations for both of you. I will nominate you both kings of the Planet.". And then the Earth lived happily ever after.

THE END!

the guy who is free from secrecy and takes crap from others yet doesn't have to worry about the opinions of others,

or the guy who seems normal, fits in anywhere, but always has a stinging sence of doubt in the back of his mind?

I think the person who can be content with how he or she is on the inside, yet "wear the mask" when out and about in society is probably the one who is most at peace with him or herself.  As Warden once quoted, "In a world full of blind people, the one-eyed man is a god so long as he taps his cane."

No... to be emo you have to be suicidal, and have "problems" that are blown way out of proportion.  Vader was homicidal, not suicidal, and his problems were kind of on the bad side, what with watching his mother die, betraying the Jedi, killing how many innocent people, getting multiple limbs chopped off by his old master, and getting set on fire certainly didn't help things much.  Oh yeah, and his wife died and he was told he was the one that had killed her.  I'd say he's got reason to be just a little bitter.  Now if he was emo he would have cut his own limbs off and crawled INTO the lava.  Vader might have been a whiney bastard at first, but you have to admire his tenacity.

I want to like the Power Puff Girls Z  mojo.  I'd really like to, but they stripped all of the aspects I liked about PPG out, jojo.  In fact, Mojo Jojo does not say "mojo" or "jojo" at the end of every sentence he, Mojo Jojo (!), says.  That is to say that the words "mojo" or "jojo" are never said by he, Mojo Jojo!  Rather Mojo Jojo repeats himself and alters the setence structure.  So by altering the structure of the sentence, he repeats himself.

AHAHAHAHA!

I know, and McCracken said yes to all that crap. Mojo Jojo had such nice dialogues, now it's just a standart anime villain, with a stupid "mojo" on the ending. And the Mayor? The Mayor is serious now! And what's up with those weapons, and with all the lesbian girls at Buttercup's school? If you didn't notice, take a look:

I proclaim this week, "Kick-ass Soda Week."

I have found and drank...

Archer Farm's Blood Orange Italian Soda which is ungodly good.

Jones Soda's Candy Corn Soda which is ungodly sweet (cream soda with a spork load of caramel and the dye will stain your hands for a day.)

Jones Soda's Spider Cider which is better than Mazanita Sol.

Jones Soda's Berried Alive which tastes digusting, (liquid pez flavored ala Redbull.)

Jones Soda's Gruesome Grape which tastes a notch better than most grape sodas.

Jones Soda's Monster Mojito which tastes sort of like ginger ale mixed with licorice.

I also stumbled across some new teas put out by POM Wonderful.

Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea for the win!  I mean come on, how many people can say they drank lychee juice?  Lychee's are a bitch to find, and most independent fruit markets are non-existant nowadays.

So drink up and wash these past, few, horrible weeks away in sobriety!

I hereby proclaim this week to be salt-poisoning week!

In lieu of the upcoming holiday and the end of my mandatory overtime, I have stocked up (wasted money,) on the following goodies...

Beef jerky
Jalepeno Pretzel Pieces
Hot Buffalo Wing Pretzel Pieces
Honey Mustard & Onion Pretzel Pieces
Cashew Chicken

And to round off turning my blood into sea-water, I have the artery-clogging goodness of...

Ice-cream
Cookie Cake for my birthday

And as for the shit I actually needed to buy...

Cereal
Toilet Paper
Plastic Spoons

Yes, this is American excess at its finest.  Feel free to stop on over and eat some of this shit before I have a heart attack before age 30.

Oh and I'm working on something I should have finished for the forums a long time ago.  I'm not making any promises, but I'll see what I can do.  ;)

Everything has a fatal dose, even water. You can die of water!
Basically, DON'T DRINK WATER! IT'S BAD FOR YOU!


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Tabun on 2006-10-31, 17:42
More interestingly, there is a remarkable development in language to be uncovered when you think about water as poisonous (or at least as it having a 'lethal dosage').

Pure, aside from still having the meaning "unmixed" and "clean", today, in etymological history also has roots in ("pious" is derived from "purus", for instance) cleanliness of the soul. Purity as such was not something that just signified some kind of cold-factual unmixed state of something, but an overal connection with moral cleanliness or a connection with the good. "Pure evil", for instance, seems to have lost its peculiar paradoxicality. Pure things (well, at least those that were not 'purely bad'), were good for you. Water was one of those things (it was considered to be the life-giving liquid by many, and rightly so).

The funny thing is, that pure water is quite poisonous. A total lack of minerals and other 'unpure' properties of the liquid makes it disposed to absord minerals from its surroundings. it is you who constitutes these surroundings, then, by only a few glasses of water, you could end up with a fatal lack of bodily minerals.

If this really is the case, then the original connection of purity (of water) with health seems to be shattered, at least in this respect. The awkward hype of 'pure water' sellers then gets a rather strange dimension, even aside from the less controversial claim that some contact with dirt and germs is beneficial to  health by helping to build up resistance.

While the claim that exposure to biological things builds immunity may be controversial, it's also empirically provable.  You contract a virus.  Your body creates antibodies for the virus.  Your body then destroys the virus, and becomes immune to that particular virus.  That's what immunity does.  If it didn't, the virus would overtake your cells and multiply endlessly at an exponential rate, eventually killing the host organism.  It doesn't mean you won't get sick, it means you no longer get sick because of exposure to that organism.  The same goes with bacteria.  People who live in one area of the world become accustomed to bacteria that is native to the water and environment there.  When they travel, they get sick because in a new area they are not accustomed.  A common example is the tourist advice "don't drink the water".  Where?  Anywhere away from where you live.  Why?  You get tummy upset because your body has to adapt to new bacterial strains it's not familiar with.  Until it does, the bacteria overgrows in your gut and you become King of the Water Closet for a few days.

There's also inherent immunity.  Viruses and bacteria can only attack certain organisms in certain ways.  A virus that kills humans, for example, may have no effect on dogs, the same as you won't catch the flu from your cat.  Usually viruses that can affect one species don't affect dissimilar life forms.  There are exceptions, and unfortunately a form of influenza that is quite lethal to my avian kin is also very dangerous to you humans.  Unfortunate not only that it can kill you, it is more unfortunate that you will kill millions of birds whose existence is relegated to being your food simply for being sick.  Without going on a tirade about how mankind treats his fellow creatures as a rule, this is akin to stopping a plague by nuking cities.  Nevermind that if you worked to figure out why the virus crosses species you might find a better solution for both your kind and for birds.  Influenza, typically, begins in birds and is picked up by swine.  It does not affect the swine, but within swine it mutates, and then becomes the human-transmissible influenza.  What you call "bird flu" is a misnomer - ALL influenzas begin in birds.  What you call bird flu is a strain of avian influenza that can be transmitted directly from birds to humans without having to mutate first.

Now, dealing with inherent immunity there's the controversial part Tab mentioned.  The idea is that if, when young, you are exposed to bacteria common to one's surroundings it will build your body's immune system, whereas not being exposed to them will result in a substandard immunity.  With everything in nature, there's a balance that must be struck.  One shouldn't bathe their children in a staff culture, but one shouldn't put them in a clean room either.  What I don't understand is why the idea should be controversial at this point, except to an uneducated germophobic public that uses bleach and hand sanitizer on everything because they buy into the marketing hype.  Vaccinations are based on this principle entirely, that by exposing someone to a weakened or dead form of a virus, like polio or smallpox or tetanus, that the body's immune system will perceive it as a threat and form antibodies against it.  Compare this to natural creatures who have no medical science.  They can only gain immunity through environmental exposure and developing it naturally and passing this natural immunity down as an inhereted trait.  In short, it's no crime to let your kids play in the dirt.  They'll be healthier in the long run for it.

Back to water, I don't care for pure water myself.  Pure water tastes stale and I don't like to drink it.  Water should have a good amount of minerals and an even better amount of oxygen.  The best tasting water comes from lakes with a stiff wind over them, or a clear stream that's fed by a spring.  Of course... anymore it's hard to find good water that industry has not polluted.  On the flip side, if you're in the desert, the best tasting water is "whatever you can find" after you haven't had any for some time.

On the subject of emoticons...

I can take another shot at those if you'd like.

I stopped because I couldn't get DOOM guy to look like DOOM guy with his helmet off.  He just looked like A guy, and adding detail to a 20 x 24 sprite is hard to pull off for me.  The nice thing about creating the Slipgate emotion was that his helmet was instantly recognizable and didn't obscure his face. :p

This is where I left off with the DOOM guy emoticon if you don't remember.

Testicles


Testicles of Hippo (ca. 495?429 BC, meaning "surrounded by glory") was a prominent and influential statesman, orator, and general of Athens in the city's Golden Age (specifically, between the Persian and Peloponnesian wars). He was descended, through his mother, from the Alcmaeonid family.

Today, we gather here to mourn the loss of a dear friend.  We all knew this day would come but none of us wanted to believe the painful truth.  The truth... was that our friend lived his life dangerously.  He was boisterous and proud, never one to show tact or control his temper when things got hot.  People claimed he damaged the property of others and some even claimed he was engineered wrong.  Still... even with all of his misgivings, he was loved by many and he will be missed.

It's become our (that is Alu and my own) habit to play a little later in the evening (say, 22 or 23 hrs CET). However, we've not played in a few weeks. I'll see if I can poke Alu into playing again next week, though. Maybe I can even get him to play a few of the mappack-maps so he can do his beta-testing job, too..

There used to be TDM Tuesday and CTF Thursday (or vice versa) and they were the games I used to catch quite regularly, mainly because I'm usually doing stuff on Saturdays. Still, might be worth hanging about on a server sometime after 2am BST - can you add bots with \callvote?

Monday, September 25th, 2007

I went to school and met up with Chad, a friend from my acting class two semesters ago. (I have no aspirations to be an actor.  I needed the credits, and I found acting to be far more effective at developing my public speaking skills than actually taking a public speaking class.)  He wanted to see more of the area (he's still new to AZ,) and he offered to drive if I would be his guide.

We checked out Lee Lee's Oriental Supermarket in Chandler, AZ as neither of us had been there.  The place is sporking awesome with food spanning from all of Asia and various countries in South America.  I bought Goya (http://www.goya.com/english/) coconut soda, Iron Beer soda, canned jackfruit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackfruit),  a fresh durian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian), chips made from plantains (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantains), mangosteen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mangosteen) juice, and Indian potato snacks.  (The total only came to $16!)  Apparently, Chad is quite the fan of coconut so most of the items he purchased were derived from that fruit.

From there, we went to a nearby Indian restaurant we found while searching for Lee Lee's.  (It's called Curry House: Flavor of India if you're curious.)  Truth be told, I had never eaten Indian food before so I wasn't certain of what to expect.  However, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Besides never having tried Indian food before, I decided to try lamb for the first time (lamb biryani (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biryani) more specifically.)  While lamb is no substitute for beef, it's delicious none-the-less.  I can't believe more people don't eat lamb here in the USA; the meat doesn't taste gamy at all.  In fact, it tastes like a pleasant cross between chicken and beef.

After the food, we stopped off at Bookman's (http://www.bookmans.com/) where I obtained a copy of Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel.  (I only need Hexen 2: Portal of Praevus now to complete my collection of the Hexen/Heretic series.)  Chad picked up Carmageddon 2 and several PC adventure titles.

From there, we went to see Resident Evil: Extinction as I had planned on seeing the movie, and I offered to pay Chad's way in.  The film wasn't nearly as good as the 2nd, but it had a lot of good horror moments like the 1st.  Afterwards, we stopped back off at school and I headed home.

But wait, it doesn't stop there...

The previous events have all been leading up to this point: the sole purpose of my day off was to obtain a durian.  Ever since I learned of the fruit's existence, it has been a minor goal of mine to taste one.  After many years of passively searching, I can finally cross it off my list and warn any who seek the "king of all fruits."

Durians have a strong odor.  (They smell like human genitalia.)  However, the odor is rather subdued when frozen and/or left unopen.  Opened durians are another story.  As you cut away at the spiky shell, you are greeted by increasing levels of funk (think of each level as an additional day of going without bathing.)  It's not gag-inducing mind, but it's still unpleasant.  The taste is... well... another matter entirely.

What you smell cannot possibly prepare you for what you taste; it's far more rancid than that.  (Think unbathed, human genitalia that has begun to rot.)  Besides the assault on your olfactory and gustatory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustatory_system) systems, durians have a seriously funky thing going on texture-wise.  Parts of the "flesh" have a consistency similar to that of an egg white cooked "sunny-side-up," while the rest is akin to eating a mango.  (Think mango-stuffed, unbathed, human genitalia that has begun to rot.)

So the "king of all fruits" bested me.  The taste was so revolting that I gagged on the tiniest sliver of the fruit.  I forced myself to try it again, this time with a larger sample, but I just could not muster the strength to chew let alone swallow.

I know now the full extent of the torture Andrew Zimmern (http://bizarre-blog.travel.discovery.com/) endured.  Durians are one of the few things Andrew is unable to stand the taste of.  This is coming from a man who will eat just about any organ from just about any animal.

But wait it still doesn't stop there...

While at home, I discovered the Indian potato snacks I purchased contained monosodium glutamate to which I am mildly allergic.  Unfortunately, I discovered this after sampling the snack so I'm running a bit of a fever right now.  I'll deal; MSG has nothing on the Italian rose petal soda (http://www.abbondio.it/) I imbibed a while back.

I also learned that my girlfriend Ashley fell down some stairs while at work today.  She injured her arm pretty badly but nothing appears to be broken.  (She's going to the doctor tomorrow.)  Even though we're over two thousand miles apart from one another, I feel horrible for not being home when she called to tell me the news...

Made it this far? Good, here's where I'm going with all of this...

1.) Treasure your friends and family.  You never know when you'll get to see them next.
2.) Don't be afraid to try new things.*

* Avoid durians and anything you're allergic to.

I keep telling you all to stick to pomegranates.  Just... don't get any this early in the year.  Wait until November when they're nice and ripe.  Early poms have white arils and that produce juice that has no flavor.

Kain:  Why is A durian called the "King of fruits"?  And why in God's name would you try one if they're considered revolting?

As per the Wikipedia article I linked to in the previous post, it is highly regarded by many people in southeast Asia.  (I believe I've also linked to this website (http://www.durianpalace.com/) before in another post.)  I seriously cannot understand how one can tolerate the taste of a durian, but I suppose it comes with the territory.  There are several other popular dishes in southeast Asia that involve the consumption of fermented food such as stinky tofu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stinky_tofu).

As for why I would try it, why not?  The taste is clearly not as good as it's hyped up to be, but it's still loaded with vitamin C and potassium.

Ahh, silly me for not clicking the links.  As for eating "disgusting" foods... I might mention the eating habits of some tribes in South America that go around almost completely naked (some are completely naked).  They use poison darts to kill monkeys up in the forest canopy, then wrap them in palm leaves and leave them to bake in the sun for three days.  Camera crews documenting them had to wear gas masks.  As for the people themselves... they have nearly unblemished skin, perfect teeth, excellent eye sight, and can eat rotten meat as easily as a vulture.  So it does not surprise me that a fruit that is unpalatable to some might be considered a delicacy elsewhere considering the variability of human diet.

Now as for my wondering about your desire to try this fruit...  While I am rather fond of vultures and marvel at their ability to consume carrion, it does not mean I will dine with them "just to see what it's like".  I suppose your curiosity exceeds mine in these matters.  ;)

Yup. I'm just glad I've still got 'em all. In fact, I've a good mind to dig 'em out again ...

I always liked the original Carnival Night Zone music. It kind of put me in mind of a sort of demented Cypress Hill circus act from Hell. Or something.

The replacement Ice Cap Zone music is particularly shite. It is totally devoid of atmosphere, something the original music delivered in spades. I'm apalled. It's like when a boy band gets hold of some classic song and takes away it's soul.

Or when they replaced ALL the music in the US version of Sonic CD ... :ninja:

And they replaced the music in Sonic CD? shit... I might have to look for the original stuff online, The music from it that I've heard isn't bad, possibly good in some cases but if there's even better stuff...

Kajet:  The M-16/AR-15 is known as the "plastic rifle" for a good reason.  The barrel, inner receiver parts, bolt/bolt carrier and gas tube are metal, but the "furniture" is all plastic, same as any other AR-15.

Tab:  Ok, the Barbie AR is one thing... but a Hello Kitty XM-8 is just pure evil.  That AK.... *shudder*  Talk about a terrorist weapon.  Who did that horrid purple coating on the metal?


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Kajet on 2007-10-25, 15:47
Huh... Is metal getting that expensive these days? Seems like after enough use a plastic firearm would begin to... break


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Phoenix on 2007-10-25, 17:45
Keep in mind the AR-15 was deployed during the Vietnam war, and it was adopted by then Secretary of Defense McNamera.  It was controversial and unpopular among the Marines of the day, and I've read some extremely scathing criticisms of its deployment by Vietnam-era Marines, including a Marine Corps armorer.

The use of plastics is kind of a mixed bag, and the AR-15/M-16 has been both lauded and vilified by grunts and civies alike for more than just the plastic on the gun, though it plays into the checkered history of the weapon.  With plastics, you have an advantage in reduced weight, and improved weather resistance over that of a wooden stock.  Any grunt wants to tote around less weight and not having water rot out your stock is a plus.  Wood tends to hold up better under high heat, though plastic tends to take high humidity better.  You have a disadvantage in that plastic ages poorly and can crack and break.  Anyone with an old car can tell you what they think of how plastic ages.  Newer polymers like Zytel are a lot tougher than the original plastic used on the first M-16's, so there's been some improvement in that department.  Glock makes some excellent polymer-framed handguns that are tough, reliable, and very accurate.  There's one example of "plastic done right". 

Any grunt will also tell you they'd like their weapon to not break when subjected to harsh conditions.  Bludgeoning an enemy when your rifle jams is one of those conditions, and jam it did - a lot - in Vietnam.  The "brass" of the day didn't listen to Eugene Stoner (guy that designed the AR-15 rifle) when he told them to use stick powder and to clean the gun a lot.  The grunts were actually told the rifle was self-cleaning when first issued owing to a lack of available cleaning kits, and the ball powder used in manufacturing the mil-spec ammunition fouled the guns over twice as bad as the stick powder Stoner designed it around and said they really needed to use.  Far too many Marines and Soldiers were found dead with a cleaning rod up their gun trying to kick out a non-ejected casing because the fouling caused it to get stuck in the barrel.  Some were even found with empty sidearms and broken rifles where they HAD used them as clubs as a last resort when they didn't have time to reload their handguns, or when they flat out ran out of pistol rounds.  You can beat the hell out of someone with an M-1 Garand or an M-14, or even a Soviet made SKS or AK-47.  The M-16 does not work well as a club at all.  Now all of these weapons can take a bayonet.  The SKS has a pretty decent sized one built in under the barrel that swings forward to lock in place, the Garand and M-14 have fairly large, attachable bayonets that work quite well as daggers even when off the gun, and you can attach a somewhat smaller bayonet to the M-16 or AK, though neither is designed to work very well in the "pig sticker" role.  Granted, if you're down to using a bayonet or clubbing someone with your gun you're probably already screwed anyway, but it takes time to affix a bayonet and if you're caught between reloads sometimes you only have time to take a good swing at the guy charging you.  There's general durability to think about with any weapon, and the wood vs plastic debate is something still argued to this day, though plastic is a lot more accepted for use in rifle stocks than it was 10-20 years ago, and it's pretty much replaced wood in military long rifles completely.

Now you want to go the opposite direction from the AR-15 pattern, take a look at the M-3 "Grease Gun".  There's a solid, no BS weapon.  Extremely reliable, cheap to manufacture, and very effective.  It won't win a long range shooting match, being a close-range open-bolt submachinegun, nor any beauty contests, but it works, and works, and keeps working.  It's entirely made of metal and has that WWII-era "pure function" look.  Grunts of the day originally didn't like it, preferring the more expensive (and more conventional looking) Thompson subgun, but once it proved itself in battle the guys using the M3's became inseparable from them.  Here's some info about it with lots of picture goodness:

Heh.  It has always been a gripe of mine that the majority of aliens in Star Trek are human-like in physique. The non-human species on the show are always depicted as a non-sentient menace/nuisance.  I had really high hopes for the "Scorpion" race introduced in Star Trek: Voyager, but it was later revealed they could transform themselves into human-like creatures.  *Sigh*  At least, we still have the Gorn.

That's because Windows Explorer is just a shell browser application.  Crashing Windows Explorer does not crash the system any more than crashing Internet Explorer would crash the internet.  It's the kernel you don't want to crash.  It's possible for Windows Explorer to crash the kernel, but it's just not as easy to do as it was with Windows 98, which liked to crash at the drop of a hat, and Windows ME, which crashed at the drop of ANY hat.

I don't think you can do it for 2000 or XP, but I know for Windows 98 you could actually use the old File Manager system and turn off the Windows Explorer interface.  It was a system option that was pretty deeply buried.  Remember that up until 2K, Windows was entirely a shell app on top of DOS.  Some of that structure is still present even if DOS is no longer the underlying OS.

The old split OS/Shell hierarchy is still present in Linux though.  You can use the same copy of Linux and use several different shells to access the same OS.  There's the Bash shell (command line), and the KDE and Gnome desktops, to name a few more common ones.

Fanboy Service? Because, I remember that people said that Mario 3 was the best mario...

Ah well screw it, IGN is pretty much orders their reviewers to praise/hate games. For example: They can give Halo a 9.5 (exellent), when it should really deserve a 6.1 (mediocre). Or give Portal a 8.5 (great) when they should really be giving it a 9.4 (exellent).

Ah hell, I didn't praised Halo like it is the equal to cocaine in games, so I'll be dead soon by the assasins that microsoft has. Oh well.

Well, rating games with grades is bollocks, if you ask me. I prefer reviews like Edge has; they give grades, but print them small and only mopingly out of deference to 'game-review standards'. Besides, the typical effect of grading has reared its ugly head at IGN, as everywhere else: A 6 has become the sign that something isn't worth the trouble. When something is actually pretty good, it must be given grades so close to 10 (perfect? wha?) to make them stand out, that it just doesn't make sense anymore. A few generations of games later, and you'll be basing your next buy on the difference between Doom 7 getting a 9.991 vs. Quake 6 getting a 9.996 -- I prefer just reading a good exhortation on what the game offers, what it doesn't, and who it is likely to appeal to. Grades are for giving schoolkids that RPG-statgathering-powerplay attitude that institutions seem to like so much.

The problem with a well written... report on a game is that not everyone has the attention span to read the whole thing, I'll read a review of a game if I'm interested in it otherwise I doubt I'd bother to look it up...

and of course once again corporate funding bites us all in the ass...

IMO, problems with regards to one's attention-span are a thing to be solved on the attention deficient's end, not by further reducing the quality/informational value of reviews...

Dear Toei,

Please stop having amazingly awesome episodes of Gekiranger (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gekiranger) that end in cliff-hangers; I can't download from the torrents fast enough.  That said, keep them coming.  :P

Dear Disney,

Please don't make your adaptation of Gekiranger suck as bad as Operation Overdrive.  Don't make Rio an evil space alien.  Don't create a new evil overlord/emperor character.  Don't give the rangers super-powers.  Don't give the red ranger a "Battlizer," (or any ranger for that matter.)  Don't add pointless ATV's and dirt bikes that were not in the original footage; this is not Masked Rider, it doesn't make sense.  Don't color the explosions.  Don't add a comic relief character, (and for spork sake give Kelson Henderson a real starring role.)  And for my sanity, please, please, please stop trying to make each series "canon" by throwing in a guest appearance or a reference to the Zordon era.  The plot holes you create with each one are irreparable.

I'mm still alive, I just lost my interest in gaming.
about the pimp ze auto post , think i missed something, because i don't know what your talking about.

What happened 2 years ago was that I actually found my life a bit borin and needed to work on my social life for a while.
so thats what I did. went out a lot, made some friends and stuff, found some new hobby's. made some money, lost some money etc.

found out I'm actually a genius in solving Real life problems.

also found out that girls are even more shy against you if your cute.  uuuggghhh and for some reason they like to touch me.

found out I'm a pretty good danser when I'm tipsy but I do get problems standing on my feet when I'm really drunk ( some beers and some vodka  :wall: )

and that you can make easy money with photoshoots IF you know the right peeps.

also did some carshows where i try to collect as many bikiniwashes as possible.

oh well, it was an experiance all together.

if anybody wants to know more about what I  did in real life, just ask.

The Games Keeper we all knew just throws a cat at the keyboard and clicks the "Post" button.

I was always under the impression that Games Keeper's cat transcribed whatever he dictated by throwing furniture at the keyboard.

Gameskeeper:  If I remember correctly you showed off some photos of your car which led to a "pimp ze auto" post by Phoenix.  I also could have sworn Phoenix and you talked about the "pimp ze auto" video in the IRC channel prior to that post but I could be mistaken.

As for pursuing "real life," no worries.  There's nothing wrong with taking up different interests, just try not to become a stranger eh?  (Well... any more than you are by default on the internet.)

Now to actually be "on-topic" for the off-topic forum:

I think these are the first screenshots of "Quake Zero": http://kotaku.com/357987/iga-and-id-team-for-free-web+based-quake-live

Visor's certainly been given a make-over but Crash looks the same.

I thought "skriva" was "writing/to write" or the like.

Actually, all western languages are pretty easy to (or at least pretty much equally hard) learn for any competent speaker of their native language. I guess the hardest thing is to learn to articulate -- that is, be able to detect the syntactic elements -- of any new language. It all sounds like a garbled stream at normal conversational speeds, until you manage to pick up on the language, it's particular "music/song" and its basic structure. After that, I've always found it easy to build up a vocabulary and develop a "feel" for it. Most people end up never learning a second language well, and get stuck with the mistaken belief that it's one of those "really hard" things to do.

The problem with learning a second language is you rarely get a chance to apply it so it usually falls to the wayside.  All I remember of Spanish are stupid phrases, and I can't read Japanese kana at all now.

On another note, please be careful driving.  I don't know what it is about this week but two of my friends have been in serious accidents and my roommate's transmission went dead on him in the middle of the road.

If you have ever played though half-life 2, you never get to see yourself, nor is this model available through the HL2:DM. So there is really no point for Valve to make a Gordon Freeman model is there? Next time rethink other people's posts before you go slamming them.

I've had Doomsday eat saved games before.  It also has some other odd bugs in it, like the crushing ceiling bug that was fixed in DOS Doom 1.3 somehow returned.  For those who do not know, if a crushing ceiling started, and stopped, then you saved a game and reloaded, the crushing ceiling's maximum height was now changed to whatever the ceiling was when you saved.  This caused crushers to turn into impassable obstacles on game load, so you'd have to make sure you kept the crusher going when you saved if you needed to get back through that spot.  There's a few other bugs, like some nasty sound behavior I had reported on a while back with the sound drivers not working correctly.  The latest beta was pulled owing to some serious problems and we're still stuck with 1.9 beta 5 which is still buggy.

I'm actually using an old version of Doomsday, simply because newer versions throw up the rope every time I try to load a mod (AliensTC, I'm looking in your direction). They always say something to do with a DEF file being too long or something. That said, if the Ultradoom project ever sees the light of day I'll probaby upgrade*.

I have 2 CRTs, the one that used to be on my 386 and the one that used to be on my main computer. One of them has a few problems already (the eldest of the two), displaying colours incorrectly and whatnot. Never got around fixing the damn thing though. Not like I use it anymore. Ever since I got a LCD, the youngest of the two was plugged in the 386, and the other one is now sitting on the floor of my attic.

Pho, you should try playing as a scout. Best class in the entire game! That and sniper.


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Phoenix on 2008-08-04, 00:38
I suck as a sniper.  I will either:

1)  Miss everyone's head
2)  Score a "critical hit" but the guy lives anyway
3)  Get headshot by the guy across the map that does NOT miss
4)  Get backstabbed by a spy
5)  Get blown up by a demo
6)  Pick a bad location to snipe from and be completely useless

Two classes I play best are Pyro and Soldier.  I've wiped out the entire enemy team as a Pyro before, and that's without an ubercharge.  I've gotten all three Pyro weapons.  Setting snipers and heavies on fire with the flare gun is fun.  So is lighting someone up and using the compression blast to blow them off a ledge and have them crater.  I don't always equip the Backburner for that reason.  Soldier I learned how to play out of necessity.  Nobody on our team was able to take out a sentry turret so I gave the soldier a go.  Personally I think his rockets could be a bit more powerful but I've gotten to where I really like the class.  Watching the occasional critical rocket take out an entire Engy-Sentry-Dispenser-Teleporter cluster or obliterate a Heavy before a medic can Uber him is just satisfying.  I'm OK as a Heavy so long as I have a medic that knows what he's doing.  I've ripped people up with him before but I tend to attract headshots from snipers way too much.

I just don't do well playing classes that have to stay put or be really sneaky.  The exception is the Engineer, but that depends on the map and if we have a good spy checker.  Some maps are hard to place sentries on, and sometimes they're useless anyway, like when the other team knows how to uber rush or has a damned good spy.  Of course... a single engineer can also be a team's entire defense.  I played one game of Well CTF where the other team had a spy that was a complete dumbass.  He decloaked without a disguise in front of my sentry gun not once, but twice, trying to place a sapper on it.  Next time he realized to use a disguise and managed to get the sapper on it but tried shooting me while I knocked it off with my wrench, losing his disguise in the process.  My sentry gun did not appreciate that, and they never once got our intelligence.  :smirk:

I like the Scout's speed but he goes down too quick.  I've used the Scout class many times to capture control points, only to have my team be stupid and not push ahead, get killed and lose the control point back, then lose the one I had just locked for them.  On the flipside I'm pretty good at dispatching Scouts as either Soldier or Pyro.  Beyond that, I make a pretty decent medic though I don't have any fun toys yet.  I absolutely hate playing as Demoman and I hate the class in general.  I can kill things with him but I just don't like using the class, and I despise players on the other team that can use the class absurdly well, especially if I'm an Engineer.  Spy I'm just no good with.  Sneaky class and I'm not good with sneaky.

Post by: Phoenix on 2008-08-08, 17:18
Pyros make good spycheckers.  Just torch anyone coming near your engineer's sentry gun, or near your intelligence (briefcase is the "flag" in CTF mode) or control point.  If they light on fire they're a spy.  If they do not, they're on your team.

I did accidentally headshoot a disguised spy once.  I was aiming at an enemy heavy when a pyro that apparently was on my team got right in front of the crosshair when I fired.  When the gun went bang I saw a dead blue spy where the pyro had been.

Regarding the Youtube video... it is cruel to overfeed an animal in that manner.  That cat is not healthy and the humans taking care of her should do a better job.

The ceiling cat reference is from the http://www.icanhascheezburger home of the LOLcats.  These are captioned pictures of cats (and sometimes other animals) in amusing poses.  There are a few recurring characters.

Ceiling Cat:  God the Father.
Happy Cat:  Ceiling Cat's only son, and the original Icanhascheezburger LOLcat.
Basement Cat:  Satan.
Monorail Cat:  Cat that looks like a monorail.
The Bucket:  Bucket stolen from walrus.

In addition, there are a few running themes:

Invisible:  Lots of invisible things, like invisible bike, invisible stool, invisible cheezburger, etc
Noms:  Nom nom nom...  Mmmmm good.
Cheezburger:  What the cats want to nom.
Bucket Search:  Has you a bucket?

etc.

The IRC server died a while back, and we've not gotten around to making a new one.  There is a #wirehead channel on ETG, but I think only Tabun and Tabbot are idling there right now.  I'm keeping in touch mostly through the forums, Steam chat, and Pidgin at present.  Eventually I'll get motivated and change my IRC scripts to point to ETG but I've been more interested in coding at present.

Post by: Phoenix on 2012-08-01, 15:56
Not sure which book since the quote's been referenced in many places, but the quote originally belongs to Irving Kristol, who is described as the "godfather of neo-conservatism".  The full quote is "A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality", referring to the notion that liberals tend to be idealists and dreamers that have not yet experienced much of the harshness of the real world which tends to conflict with their ideals and dreams of forming a Utopian society.  The notion is that reality "mugs" them of their idealism and brings them back down to earth.  Kristol was a former Trotskyist (Marxist).

You are correct, sir!  The weapon is from the Xbox version of the game.

I had to ban FistMarine because he was adversely affecting the development of Generations by basically spamming me with long PM's about things I had already answered him on, as well as excessive narrative about things I really did not need to be PM'd about.  It's not something I wanted to do, but there was no other way to "encourage" him to focus his time and attention on his own interests and leave me alone to work on mine.  I don't mind helping someone out, but I kind of had to shove him out of the nest, so to speak.  When we get closer to 1.0 being finished and when he's matured a bit I'll probably unban him, but for now he needs to learn a bit of self-reliance.

Well, per a discussion through his cousin's account, I think he understands what I was trying to tell him.  I've unbanned him and he's on "probation", as it were.  He'll have to fix his avatar.

I don't like permanently banning people, and I don't like banning at all if I can help it.  We tolerated dev/null for a very long time until he admitted that his only reason for being on the forum was to stir up trouble and troll.  The only time we'll ban without remorse is in the case of spam bots, anyone attempting to hack or damage the forum, or someone threatening forum members in any way.

Much as I enjoy MLP I suppose.  I don't consider myself a "Brony", though it's a decent cartoon and I'd say better than 99% of what passes for entertainment on TV these days...  :shifty:

Honestly, despite never watching the show (and thus having no real opinion at all one way or the other), that's probably true. I mean.. I don't even turn on my TV any more except for those 'once every third blue moon' occasions.
But eh, I enjoy horribly cheesy music. I find it hilarious in some fashion to listen to.. then after a while, it gets catchy while still remaining funny. It's odd. Never Gonna Give You Up started that way (way back before I even knew what a 'Rickroll' was).. others examples are Rico Suave (Gerardo), A Girl Like You (Edwyn Collins), Ice Ice Baby (Vanilla Ice), and Looking For Freedom (David Hasselhoff).

The engineer roll was ok, I spoze.. but my favorite will probably always be Mario Paint (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uZr3JWYdy8).

Oh, and I must chime in and rant on the "Generations Progress is slow" bit.  I find that very irritating when people complain.  Whining and complaining will not speed it along.  It will only annoy the bird.  If someone wants it done quicker then can invent a freaking time turner so I can have more hours in a day.  Maybe then I can get some programming done.  As it is, I work on what I can when I can.  The same goes for the rest of the team.  Real life takes priority.  I can't speak for everyone else, but things like having food to eat, warmth, electricity, and needing to sleep kind of take priority over a mod project that we are doing FOR FREE.  Add to that other duties that I have that I am unwilling to discuss but are very real, and that presents a huge limitation.  I don't know of anyone that doesn't want to see this completed.  If anyone thinks they can do this better they're welcome to show us some previous mod experience of their own that puts what we're doing to shame.  Maybe we'll consider asking that person for some help.  Until that happens, this is my answer to people that want everything "NOW":  Put up or shut up.  Don't criticize our progress if you can't compile the freaking Quake source code or are unwilling to even properly try!  :shout:

Now, let's get this topic back off-topic.

If I post something off-topic in this thread, wouldn't it actually be on-topic? And if that's the case, wouldn't being on-topic in this thread, by definition be off-topic? So would I actually end up being off-topic precisely because I was on-topic? Is this thread just a paradox waiting to happen? Am I my own grandmother?

Does rocks float on lava?


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Phoenix on 2014-04-08, 18:34
That depends on the density and melting point of the rock, and the density and temperature of the lava.  Rocks can float on lava, but not all rocks will float on lava.

You would float on lava too... for a short time.  You'd be on fire and die very quickly, but you're not dense enough to sink.  As for why Quakeguy sinks in lava, he's wearing heavy armor and carrying lots of heavy ammo!  :wtf:

On average? If two terminators can't kill each other at the same time (no RLs, GL, or plasma guns) ?
(n-1 / n), if n is the total number of terminators. Maximum for one terminator is, of course, n-1. Unless he commits suicide or something.

Hi guys, I'm back! Thanks for approving my account. :doom_thumb:

First, I want to apologize for my childish behavior from 2 years ago. I acted very childish and I regret doing that, especially to Phoenix. If you guys wonder what was about, it was a simple mod for Quake 3, which introduces a Shrink Ray. This idea comes from Duke Nukem 3D's Shrinker weapon and I wanted to have it in Quake 3 Arena, even though there were 2 mods that contained shrink ray (Superheroes Arena and WYRM are the mods that had shrink ray) but I just wanted a simple mod that adds the shrink ray only, while keeps Quake 3 gameplay intact. Since I had no experience in Quake coding and modding, I asked Phoenix if he could do it and he said sure. But then I started requesting for more features and Phoenix got angry and banned me and then I wanted to be removed from forum when my ban expired. I lost the mod since 2 years (when I was removed from forum) and I want to play it again. :zzz:

Today I decided to register again on forum to make an apology message (this one) and to contribute to this forum. Another reason is the fact that there have been some updates to Generations Arena, which added Team Arena support and it was more than enough to make me register to this forum. ;)

Hope you guys forgive me for my behavior. I was really stupid back then. Now I'm 18 and half and I'm adult and I realize my mistakes and try to fix them. ^_^

I typically do not like to ban people.  I might get angry, turn my text red, and give a verbal dressing down if I think someone's crossed a line somewhere, but I prefer to reserve permanent bans to spam bots and people that are trying to deface the website or are otherwise harassing other forum members, and account deletions are typically only done if the user requests it.  There's only been one individual that was ever perma-banned for harassment that I can think of off the top of my head.

That being said, I'm all for moving beyond what's in the past and continuing forward.  So, welcome back FistMarine.  Let's not pester the bird of coding too much this time, around, yes?  ;)

His username was dev/null.  He engaged in a pattern of behavior that became increasingly belligerent toward other users over time, until he finally outright admitted that he thought nobody was "worthy" of knowing what he really thinks and feels... even though he had been pretty much expressing his true feelings the whole time.  Since he felt nobody here was "worthy" of him, and since his only interest in the forum was to use it as an anti-religious soapbox - even to the point of accusing me of using it as my own personal pro-religion blog, despite the fact that I only spoke in response to his attacks and have never used the forum for that purpose - we felt his continuing presence was unneeded.  Sadly, even after that, he tried re-registering under several different usernames, even going through an anonymizing proxy, and posting anti-religious rants, but it was fairly easy to figure out who was under the account and just block access.  Eventually he got tired of trying and (hopefully) found something meaningful to do with his life.

I think what he failed to grasp is that this is, has been, and will be primarily a site devoted to video games and mods.  It's not anyone's personal blog nor is it a pulpit.  If someone wants to talk about something, pretty much anything goes so long as everyone respects each other.  Differences of opinion are going to happen, and certain topics will be controversial and elicit strong feelings.  We have a subforum devoted to that kind of thing, but even then, it's expected that respect will be present.  Intolerance - and I mean true intolerance, not the definition the news media and Politically Correct thought police use - is a real problem and is something we won't put up with in the board.  I've seen plenty of it on other message boards and it tends to follow the same pattern every time.  It's fine to say you believe something is right or wrong, or that someone is right or wrong about an issue, philosophy, or whatever.  It's great to discuss things, and if something doesn't seem appropriate to discuss on an open forum, there's the PM system for any user to discuss anything they want with another user - again, so long as it's not used for harassment.

What we don't want is to have what starts as a discussion degrade into personal attacks, hateful arguing, intimidation, etc.  For example, if Joe User belongs to the Cult of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and Jane User is a devout follower of Cthulhu, and Joe says he doesn't believe in Cthulhu, that's one thing.  If Jane says the Cult of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is nothing but a bunch of meatball-eating fork salesmen in return, that's crossing the line.  If, however, the Cult of the Flying Spaghetti Monster's Sacred Cookbook states "Thou shalt eat meatballs and sell forks and do nothing else", then Jane is technically correct, but is being disrespectful in how she's speaking to Joe.  It is OK for Jane to state that she doesn't like the teachings of the Sacred Cookbook and disagree with Joe, and move on from there.

That last point is the most important one - that people move on past their differences and respect each other.  If they can't, we'll step in and break it up.  If it continues, then we'll have to take necessary steps to keep things civil.  We don't want animosity breeding on a forum that's devoted to having fun playing a video game mod.  Normally we don't have problems like this, and the only things we have to ban are spam bots and the occasional script kiddie that's tried to hijack the site.  We'd like to keep it that way.  :doom_thumb:

What's the big difference between the Cult of Cthulhu and the Flying Spaghetti Monster religion? They both worship weird gods with tentacles :P

Cthulhu will eat you, while spaghetti is meant to be eaten, so I think that's the primary difference.

I wanted to play some Doom, but it appears Windows 95 is no longer popular with the younguns. I think I missed something.

Indeed.  Everyone's using 7, 8, or (wtf happened to 9?) 10.  You'd think that 95 would be better, being a higher revision and all!

Reinstalled UT04 and I gotta say... I wish things didn't disappear from the net, like when Polycount was awesome for Q3 models.


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Phoenix on 2016-01-06, 20:38
Yeah, and I even emailed Polycount asking about the old Q3 model archive.  I was met with silence.  No replies, no answers, just... nothing.  If they lost them due to a server crash or something I'd understand but they never once said what happened to them, and a lot of those models weren't available anywhere else.  I will never forgive them for that.  :evil:

somewhat.  I think I have about 330 of them.

There's an overwhelming amount of custom skins though and getting those individually through the fileplanet line would've been more troublesome on short notice then.


What seems totally wiped out though is ......The Wadfather :(  It's been hosted at many different places and the only survivng part seems to be skyboxes from one of its earliest incarnations!


It's still "up" in useless, broken php form (http://wadfather.mr-gibs.com/).  Don't know if mr. gibs could be contacted about it or if he saved anything however.

LOL zing. I should mention installing Winsock 2 successfully is so much of a pain I just gave up and dropped the two required dlls from it in the system folder to test this.  Win98+ shouldn't experience this pain


in speaking of experiencing pain I tried to elaborate on the proto-rtcw particle system left in cgame, couldn't make bouncing sparks, so i ripped that out and stuck some Quake code in its place. and made bouncing stretchy sparks


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: Phoenix on 2016-06-12, 15:41
Oh yeah, that code is VERY ugly.  For certain effects I rewrote it as a stripped down "simple" particle system.  I found out that cgame is VERY inefficient on complex math, so even simplified cgame particles was dropping an Opteron 2.2GHz system down to 2 FPS with a full-length Q2 railgun spiral on screen.  Once I got access to the engine source I hacked in a Q2-style particle system for Gen.  I was able to move almost everything engine-side and there's no FPS hit even with 32000 particles on screen.  I still use the cgame particles for the new Q3 BFG particles and some of Earth's effects since they require more complex shaders instead of just being point-style particles.

Only thing I haven't been able to do is use actual GL particles - I had to use a hacked-in entity and sprite shader.  For some reason the GL particles won't render, and OpenGL programming is very confusing to me.  It works and is efficient, which is all I care about.  If you ever want a copy of the engine stuff I've done it's all under GPL so I have no problem sharing.

And we need to get back off-topic!  This is turning into a regular thread!  Oh noes!  :wtf:


Title: Re: it's... the Off-Topic Topic (it just won't die!)
Post by: leilei on 2016-06-13, 00:03
I thought about having particles in the client/ part using Q3MME engine's scripted particle system code (which is super elaborate and familiar to the fragmovie scene), but never ever got that to compile properly, so I fell back to sporadically hacking up cgame stuff (https://github.com/OpenArena/leixperimental/commits/master)  :(

Would be handy too because my code for managing different schemes of particle effects are a mess.  I have a single cvar controlling what would be used, with values by year of they're riffing off (set to 1996 you'd get the blocky quake particle effects, 1999 would get psx/dc/HL-ish effects, 2000 for earlygen ps2 fx etc)
