Beta Testing in General

I found the threads where you mentioned windows beta testing for GF2 - here, here and here. None of these threads had a request that someone let you know when the beta testing applications opened. Your totally irrelevant popcorn thread wasn't deleted, so I'm not sure why a thread that was relevant would be deleted ... but enough on that subject.

I'm genuinely sorry you missed out on something that clearly meant a lot to you.

But, if it meant that much to you, why on earth did you leave it to chance that someone might remember your request and let you know? A better way, and a suggestion for next time (if you can't keep an eye on the Spiderweb site yourself) would be to ask someone in particular to let you know. If that person says no, keep asking individuals until someone says yes. If you ask in a group situation, you run the risk of everyone thinking that someone else has told you and nobody taking the responsibility of emailing you with the news.

How were we to know that you weren't keeping an eye on Spiderweb's news page on their website?

Did you ask anyone to email you with beta testing news?

For all anyone here knew, you could have applied to be a beta tester and been quietly testing the game.

If you weren't checking Spiderweb's site regularly and didn't request that someone email you to let you know, it's hardly anyone else's fault that you missed out. Nobody here was being ignorant ... it's just that we're not mind readers.

Work? What's that? in General

I work as a customer service officer for Centrelink (the government run welfare agency in Australia). Since I also have an anxiety disorder, I've found my job a bit of a struggle over the past few years. I'm reasonably well paid on a per hour basis, however due to my health issues I'm only capable of working part time. My reduced hours mean that my income is low enough to get a part disability pension - which is one of the welfare payments Centrelink administers.

I've recently decided to return to part time study (after a break of 24 years), and if I'm accepted into University I'll be handing in my resignation. Since I made this decision, I haven't been able to stop smiling

For the first question, the question was the 'next type' of Spiderweb game ... so I assumed that you meant a new type (given that GF2 & BOA are the current types, either recently released or in the works).

As for the last question, I'm neither male nor under 22 and a 1/2. And while I may be reasonably intelligent, I don't consider myself really really smart. Ignoring the other silly options, I was left with 'this poll stinks'.

Go buy the videos of the series, each video has 2 ad-free episodes, or if you can find the cash for it, you can buy DVD sets of series 1, series 2, etc.

Here in Australia the episodes (for every Trek series from TNG onwards) were available on video before they were shown on TV. The TV station with the rights to Star Trek runs science fiction shows in a late night slot (11pm), which is sometimes later (after midnight) as at that time of night the station doesn't care if programs run over time. Occasionally they don't put it on at all, replacing it with direct telecasts of sporting events such as Wimbledon or major cricket events from overseas.

I think the poll could have benefited from multiple choice answers for the question about which is most important to you (perhaps rewording the question to 'which of these elements is important to you').

I answered lots of story, but could just easily have gone for lots of NPCs with personalities (probably one reason why A3 isn't my favourite Spiderweb game - all those boring generic NPCs) or for puzzles, challenge, and new interesting twists. All three of these elements are part of what makes Spiderweb games enjoyable for me.

In a way graphics are important too - primarily because they are NOT game-slowing, resource-hungry, state of the art graphics that require the latest gee-whiz computer to run at a reasonable speed. If Spiderweb had graphics like that, I wouldn't have purchased the games as they'd be unplayable on my system.

If you have a firewall, but don't know how to scan your system ... then I assume that someone else installed the firewall.

Can you try asking the person who installed the firewall to help? Computer problems are much easier when you can see the problem in person (as opposed to attempting to diagnose/fix a problem on a message board).

Yes, I know I say 'get someone in RL to help' every time you post a tech problem here. You've never explained why you can't do that.

Intelligence in General

Expanding on my comments from a week ago -

Intelligence quotient (IQ) doesn't really mean anything. I don't do too badly on IQ tests (by that I mean I score somewhere above the 125 mentioned in the stupidity topic, but below MENSA level).

Put me in a social setting and I can easily look like a total idiot - as I have demonstrated several times here in the past 6 months.

Numerically I'm above average (yep I'm one of the 80% who chose that option). But I'm not a genius, nor do I consider myself 'smart'. If there was a test for 'common sense' I'd probably score below average. Common sense has more relevance to everyday life than IQ.

Why would you bother?

If you're meant to go there, then there's an in-game way to get there. It may take longer, but it'll be more fun than moving files about.

If you're not meant to go there at all in the game, then there wont be anything to see anyway.

To get back to the question of why less viruses are written for macs ...

I think it's because, as stated above, less people use macs. The people who choose to release their viruses into the public arena are doing so because they think it's fun to mess up as many computers as possible. They want maximum impact, hence they write their viruses to affect the system most widely used.

I use names of characters I had on the MUD I used to play - they came from a variety of sources (including people I know, tv, books, and a baby name website). Some of the names are Kyna, Tarn, Annika, Embeth, Azhure, Rivkah, Tirzah, and Hamble.

Hamble was a lot of fun - only Brits and other Aussies recognised the source of the name, and her warcry was the theme song of the children's TV show she's from. It was always fun to see her warcry terrorise the target IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Names_files/smile.gif)

Also keep in mind that your intelligence quotient (IQ) doesn't really mean anything. I don't do too badly on IQ tests, but put me in a social setting and I can easily look like a total idiot, and don't bother tossing a ball to me - because I probably won't catch it.

The Lair of Drakos is where you'll find Pachtar's plate mail. It has nothing to do with golems.

I hope you got a certain special item from the mage in Kneece before Olga died. If you didn't get it, you'll be unable to finish the roach quest.

I think forcing you to dance to the Wiggles constitutes putting his life in danger ;) .

When my 7 year old was 3 she was very into Teletubbies. If I ever have to watch another episode again, I think I'll go LaLa. Although I kept one Teletubby videotape - it'll be good embarrassment material when she's a teenager.

The way I see it, the essense of the 1rst amendment is to permit me and others to say whatever the hell we want to.
Excuse an ignorant Aussie chipping in here ... but I understood the first amendment was about the right to express an opinion, not about the right to use profanity. I thought that 'Free speech' was about the right to express your point of view, not about the choice of words you use to express that point of view.

I don't mind the occasional profanity, heck I use them myself now and then. But I find it boring to listen to people who use a certain 4-letter word several times in each sentence. To me it indicates a limited vocabulary.

Looking for a shoulder to cry on... in General

Please accept my condolences on your loss.

Eleven years ago I lost my grandfather after a very long illness (of several years duration) and 3 weeks later my youngest brother, aged 24, died unexpectedly. My grandmother also passed away (after a relatively brief illness) 4 years ago.

I was very close to my grandparents and to my brother. Fortunately I do believe in heaven, and at times of great stress I have felt that they are 'up there' looking out for me.

I found that allowing myself time to grieve (and not expecting myself to 'snap out of it') helped. Also, it helped me when I learnt that grieving is a process that involves many different feelings, and that's normal and ok.

I'm a 40 year old Sagittarian, born in the year of the Tiger.

If you're collecting this data to correlate our online personalities with our star signs, then the sun sign isn't going to help much. You'd need the time of birth and location of birth to calculate full charts.

Relevant data would include
- the location (sign & house) of Mercury, planet of communication.
- the rising sign and the planets in the first house (the first house being the house that relates to our own perceptions of ourselves)
- any important aspects involving Mercury and/or the first house

DISCLAIMER: I used to enjoy drawing up astrological charts before I had a computer, but never really got into the analysis side of it. I no longer believe that astrology works - I've met too many people who don't match their birth charts.
