Nice to see ya around dareva.
Thanks. I was driven back by the temptation of new BoA scenarios, and the need to finally, really truly get my own going before I go insane from boredom.

The last few classes I had involved not papers exactly, but various projects. The professors threatened us with failure, ridicule, and itchy rashes should we dare to plagiarize, but I don't recall my university's official statement on it. Since I don't plagiarize, I didn't really feel it that important to my life.

I got much better results with my username on a different forum. With my original username, A HAM LORD IS was the favorite, resulting in a cartoon of a regal pig in ermine-trimmed robe and crown. After a name change, I got PELT ERNIE. Throwing things at Sesame Street characters is always fun.

Now all I get is

A AD REV
A RAVED
AD AVER
AD RAVE

Bah.

How young do you have to be to qualify as part of the "younger generation"? I'm caught between trying to understand my mother's puzzlement at thumb drives and her utter inability to click and drag (she's been using computers for more than ten years, and she still can't click and drag) and not being able to understand anything my sixteen-year-old cousin ever says about computers.

That was just right at the beginning few zones. Once I get spells like Augmentation and better armor, my Agent is much more resistant to damage. But I used to have a lot of trouble starting out.

I tend to boost my Endurance as an Agent a touch more than you folks seem to. On the occasions that enemies managed to run up to my Agent a turn or two after the start of battle, a hit would often take her out. :mad: I got tired of this. If I'm playing "wrong," so be it.

Yawn...the old debate bores me to tears. I have no feeling one way or another, as I have used Macs for years and currently have a rather crotchety laptop running Win XP. It does what I want it to do, and that's all that I ask. If someone wishes to buy me a new Mac for comparison purposes, I won't say no to it.

Do you also find the idea of Microsoft Word (and the rest of Office) or Windows Media Player on Macs odd? These programs all exist in Mac versions, too.
I remeber someone telling me that people rather use windows because its more compatibale with everything. Anything you can do on Windows you can do on a Mac but no chance vice versa.

Isn't the reason for that that simply more people use Windows? Why make something for relatively few users when you could make something for more users?

Like I said, I'm all for the horrific monstrosity idea. Bonus points if it eats you at the end of the game.

I speak English, a little French, and a little Latin (with a bad French accent). At one time, I was going to try to learn both German and Greek, but somehow that never panned out.

Trust me, it is. You have to balance it carefully so that you are only drunk enough that you retain sufficient faculties. It helps if you had the game running before you started drinking. The attacks of the rotghroths in particular take on a new hilarity.

I want my other two characters back! in The Avernum Trilogy

On the contrary, I found that when I went back and replayed E3 after playing A2, those two extra characters rather annoyed me. You don't really need a fighter, a fighter/trap disarmer, a fighter/archer/lockpicker, a mage, a priest, and a mage/priest after all. (That's the way I always divided up the duties in Exile games, anyway.)

In other news, GF3 is awesome, if you play it, er, intoxicated.

So I hear.

I got used to the boats. It helps if instead of traveling from zone to zone like a good little player, you make extensive use of a certain cheat code. Unless you're one of those pure non-cheaters.

Well, I'm a little confused about what you're asking, but I would write that sentence as:

She said, "He walks down the walkway." The punctuation inside the quotation marks.

WTF? There are two "for" votes now.

A resounding against here. The only person I know with a DS is my incredibly spoiled cousin, and I seriously doubt that he even plays the thing.

I wouldn't mind having Acid Shower replaced by something better. It's the one spell that I almost never think of, even though I almost always buy it.

My obsessive use of Unlock is why I always end up with loads of living tools at the end.

I'm personally eager to create a horrific monstrosity. It'd be something.
