A New Revelation, Hardly Worth Mentioning in Richard White Games

Love the new name, Alo!

Maybe all Cult members should change their monikers to an anagram of Richard White — either complete or partial, depending on personal preference — or even a combination of the two — at least for a short while, as a sort of bizarre publicity blitz.

:D …

… :rolleyes:

Well, [b]I[/b]'ve heard of worse schemes!

I'll have to seek divine guidance on what my new moniker should be…

Yes, but their reproduction is exponential. It's one new forum today… before you know it, though, there will be millions of them.

I always find these kinds of debates amusing, trying to infratextually reconcile the game's interface with the game world.

It's like those people who try to explain, within the story, why the first Doctor looks so different in The Five Doctors than he did in The Dalek Invasion of Earth.

A New Revelation, Hardly Worth Mentioning in Richard White Games

Courtesy of the Internet Anagram Server, I've used the art of anagramancy to bring to light several new revelations regarding various hitherto hidden characteristics of the Eternal White One.

Anagramancy which, though not as thirst-quenching as tasseomancy, or as fashionable as stolisomancy, or as spectacular as ceraunoscopy, is nonetheless more sanitary than hepatoscopy, safer than belomancy, less expensive than margaritomancy, and nowhere near as herpticidal as plastromancy.

And to top it all off, it's as much fun as gyromancy!

And thanks to the Subjective Theology Office, the following illuminations are entirely open to personal interpretation.

(Well, most of them, anyway.)

—————

COMPLETE ANAGRAMS:

What Reich, Dr. I?

—Obviously an allusion to myself, Icshi (Dr. I), who, as leader of the White Cult, can, at any time, guide White's followers along, as it were, at their clamorous request, towards the Path to Empire, and fill his own sentences with many, nay, dozens of commas, without let or hindrance.

Hi! I rad wretch.

—Richard White introducing himself to the 8th Annual Seattle Shareware Convention

Hid air wretch.

Which I, retard?

—Capable of several differing interpretations, none of them very complimentary.

Weird rich hat

—Clearly expressing, I think, the need for a new style of Cult-sanctioned form of headgear.

With dire arch

Which art dire

Harried witch

—Perhaps written below "Richard White" on his name tag at the above-mentioned 8th Annual Seattle Shareware Convention, as a fuller description of his particular niche in the software world.

Herdic wraith

Chi Whi retard

Hardwire itch

—Expressing the transcendent desire of all Cultists to become one with His Visions by embarking on a ten-hour Galactic Core binge.
(—Or, far more likely, a reference to one of the common side-effects of those pesky implants.)


—————

PARTIAL ANAGRAMS:

Diarrhetic

—Hmmm… :confused:

Hardwire

Hierarch

Tarried

Harried

Hairier (?)

Harriet

—At last, the name of Mrs. White is finally revealed! Uh, whatever that's worth...

Charred

Triadic

Hatched

Watched

Watcher

Aircrew

Warred

Erratic

—————

You can also get the words "Third" and "Reich."

Further comment would be superfluous.

—————

Any Cultists distressed by any of these revelations is invited to call the Indoctrination Crisis Hotline at:

1-900-555-1528

The fee for this service is a reasonable $16 per minute, payable by cash, money order, or five years of indentured servitude on a pirate ship plying the sea off the western coast of Greenland.

I usually click the reload button repeatedly, hoping that that will somehow make fascinating new messages magically appear out of nowhere.

Maybe we should rig up a random-word generating program, assign it membership, and have it post at slow times such as this.

Of course, I suspect this has been done with several well-known accounts, but their timer mechanism seems to be faulty.

And as for resolutions; several years ago I resolved to give up New Years' resolutions, and I've followed through with this commitment every year with no serious deviations.

That sounds intriguing, Goldenking. Any chance you could make a clip, even if you just send it to my email address? I'd really like to hear that.

I'm surprised you didn't know before. It gets used all the time all over the 'net. Not that it's a bad thing...

Here and Polaris are the only places where I really "hang out" on the internet, and even so go to Polaris rather infrequently. I belong to a few Yahoo groups, but Leetspeak has never cropped up in any of them.

And I tend to steer clear of anything that's even tangentially related to computer hacking. I find them difficult enough to use as it is when using them correctly

Hmmm… I see that Forum 20 has made its appearance—

All gloom and doom aside, though:

Congrats, Delicious Vlish! You're a great asset to these boards, and I'm delighted that you're going to be one of this forum's moderators. I'm sure you'll do an excellent job!

I was just trying to find out what "leetness" meant.

And then I learned too much from Wikipedia and shot an arrow thorugh my head to stop the pain.

Musicnames in General

While listening to music in bed last night, I came upon a strange notion when the CD player came to my favorite part of track #2. I thought to myself, "If we were a race whose vocal chords could produce any sound, and our names were small chunks of music, [b]that[/b] would be mine!"

I've obligingly created and uploaded a twenty-four-second M4A file containing the segment in question. It's a repeating pattern, and my name would be just that. The clip is longer than it needs to be, so you can hear the pattern repeated several times.

Icshi's Musicname

(I strongly recommend downloading the clip then listening to it offline. Many browsers are prone to opening a window and filling it with text-gobbledegook instead of reading it as a music file. Also, if you hear a clickity-clickity-clickity in the background, try closing your media-player and listening to the clip again. Downloaded music files can be a bit tempermental at times…)

So as not to detract from the music itself, I've left it devoid of all identifying features. You'd have to have heard the piece in question, or be familiar with the style (or just be familiar with my taste in music), to identify it.

So I'm wondering — if [b]you[/b] could have a few seconds of music be your name, what would [b]you[/b] pick?

Sound clips are not necessary, though they would be helpful. I expect most people will just name the musical work in question, and merely allude to "that bit near the end that goes boom-ba-baroomp-baa-boomm."

Avernum IV, goog... what next? in General

Cool! In that case, it would certainly be properly done. I felt that Geneforge 3 should've expanded the player's horizons a bit, and that would've been how I did it.

I hope the Shaper Council pulls off the kid gloves in 4, and starts tapping into some of their barred projects... Becoming the enemy to fight the enemy, and all that.

I'd like to see a Geneforge that can be used by humans again. That's probably the thing I missed most in 2 and 3.

I think Geneforge 4 would be fantastic, if it were done properly.

…Oh, hang on a minute. That's what I said about Geneforge 3—

I finally looked up 1337 and Leetspeak on Wikipedia. And I have only one brief, shuddering thing to say on this topic:

Software Piracy! in General

The main strength of the blunderbuss as I understand it — based on what I heard on the History Channel show Conquest with Peter Woodward — is that it could fire just about any object you could put in it. Since pirates often had to make do with what they had, just about the only ammunition they had at any given time was just about any object you could put in it. Most pirates were dirt poor, and constantly on the verge of starvation, and getting supplies legitimately was difficult, so they depended on random theft to gain supplies, and they'd end up with random supplies. Imagine their dismay when they successfully kill the crew of a ship, and find nothing in the cargo hold but row on row of books.

I think a blunderbuss — filled with bent nails, dead men's teeth, and suchlike — would take care of any ninja within blast range. Heck, the pirate could even shoot the shuriken back at the ninja!

I did three years of Latin in high school, using Waldo E. Sweet's excellent Artes Latinae program to teach myself. Great fun. Definitely one of the most enjoyable and valuable learning experiences of my life.
