Sorry if I have been gone for several days. My modem got fried in a thunderstorm over here in PA. Then I found there was shortage of modems over here. I live out in the middle of the countryside and all major shopping centers are more than 30 miles away. My parents won't go to one, even in an emergency. So I had to find a private seller of computer parts and even they were out of modems. I had to order one and that took more than a day.

I still don't know any of the authors you people have been talking about. Boy, I feel like a real cad. I don't read anywhere near a s much as everyone else here. I am more of a mystery movie person. I don't normally have the time to read a book. I get the same effect watching a movie that most people get reading a book.

I just got done watching Agatha Christie's: Murder On the Orient Express for the second time. A very good movie. If you can find them, I suggest buying on the internet or borrowing from the library, "The New Advenbtures of Sherlock Holmes". This audio tape set plays episodes from a radio show from the 1940's starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. They are some of the best I have ever found. You can also find some of their movies online also.

I have found that some Sherlock Holmes movies are very appealing. Mainly the older ones are the best, in my opinion.

Bye.

Yeah, I had the same problem here too. I didn't think I was banned, I thought my computer was crashing again. I developed a method for finding out whether or not the problem lies in my computer. I talk to a friend on Yahoo messenger and ask themto check out the same site I am having trouble with. Usually the response is that they can't connect to it either.

Only fallacy with this method is the fact that I have so few people to talk to. On Yahoo Messenger I have only 4 or 5 contacts. 3 of them are family, one is a friend, and the other is an aquaintance on the internet.

On AOL Messenger I have only two contacts. And they are both friends that are rarely ever on AOL Messenger.

As for MSN, I have only two contacts there as well. One is a friend and the other is my sister-in-law.

I get so few emails, that I am lucky if I get one a day. I have several email boxes with Yahoo and one main one with pa.net.

I just don't have anyone to chat to except on this forum.

Oh, well.

Bye.

Did you know that the Mayan calander and the calanders of several other ancient cultures all stated that the world will come to an end in 2012?!?! I'm superstitious or anything, but I find that rather creepy. Most of Nostradamus's predicitions, have, in fact, come true.

Scary when you think about it, eh?

I am kinda worried about achieving things in life before 2012. Anyone else here get creeped out by that prediction? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards ASTRONOMY UPDATE Mars_files/tongue.gif)

Answer to question #1.

1. Give It Back

Answer to Question #2.

3. On a mountain

Answer to question #3.

4. Powerful, but out of control

Comments

I wouldn't want to live in a volcano, mainly because I prefer cool temperatures.

I wouldn't want to live in a house high up in a tree because I have a very bad fear of heights.

I wouldn't want to live on an island, because I prefer living in the countryside and I don't like being trapped or isolated.

A cave would suit me, but they are too damp and there isn't much to look at in there.

I wouldn't want to live in the Arctic, because it is TOO cold there.

I would prefer living on a mountain where the temperature is cooler, the view is better, and there are plenty of plants around. I love the field of horticulture.

I can think of one Sherlock Holmes story that contains Professor Moriarty. I believe it is called the The Adventure of the Empty House or something like that.

I will try to find more for you.

Another story containing Professor Moriarty is called The Final Problem. That is the one where Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go into hiding from Professor Moriarty and they both supposedly meet their end at the Richenbach Falls. With Dr. Watson being left to tell the story.

I suggest reading these books and, if possible, go to a libray and borrow out the stories on cassette tapes as well.

Sorry, sorry, sorry. My fault for not explaining. When I said other forums, I meant other forums on the internet, not this site. I use only one name here. If I ever use a second one, it will be called Sherlock Holmes.

It is strange that someone else has the same taste of tv shows as I do. I think I would like to meet this person. Could be an intriguing match. I'll have to look into that.

Dang! I don't know any of the book titles mentioned or the authors. I have heard of Frankenstein, thank goodness. And Stephen King.

Well so much for anyone who happens to read anything associated with mysteries. No one here reads anything associated with Sherlock Holmes or any mystery I have ever heard of.

Still, movies aren't all that bad. They may be cheaper in America, but they aren't getting any better. The good age of movies died out in the late 1990s.

I think think I will start a movie topic. Despite the criticism of it. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hello there everyone____what game are you playing now (2)_files/tongue.gif)

What did I miss this time Alorael? Was it something about the Ninjitsu comment several posts above?

By the way, isn't Alorael a name from the original Exile game?

Oh, cool. I have heard of the Zodiac. I have watched so many programs on the Discovery Channel, History Channel, Learning Channel, and the Travel Channel that it isn't funny. My favorite topic is Ancient History. Mostly pertaining to Egypt, Ancient England, Ancient Greece, Ancent Rome, and various other places. I also love watching programs on treasure hunts from sunken ships and diving in submersibles to see things like the Titanic (my favorite sunken ship) and various other sunken ships.

I have many interests pertaining to History. I just recently watched a program on the possible discovery of Queen Nefertiti. I am completely mesmerized by such stuff.

I saw some programs on the Zodiac as well. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hello there everyone____what game are you playing now_files/biggrin.gif)

To the average person, no. But to many people Classic Nickelodeon is defined as certain shows made before 1994 or 1995. Most shows after that are considered to be newer. What I, and the several thousand people that back me up, mean is shows like:

Eureeka's Castle
Picture Pages
Adventures of Pete and Pete
The Noozles
Inspector Gadget
The World of David the Gnome
Pinwheel
Salute Your Shorts
Today's Special
Wild & Crazy Kids
Clarissa Explains It All
Count Duckula
Are You Afraid of the Dark
Adventures of the Little Koala
Danger Mouse
Dennis the Menace
Lassie
Double Dare
Sharon, Lois, & Bram's Elephant Show
Flipper
Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics
Heathcliff
Hey Dude
Looney Tunes
The Littl' Bits
Maya the Bee
Mr. Wizard's World
You Can't Do That On TelevisonThese, thousands of people the world over, consider to be Classic Nickelodeon shows. They are what paved the way for the, shall I say without being to harsh, pathetic shows that are on today.
What I mean by pathetic is that they can be watched by today's children, but for the people who grew up watching the Classic Nickelodeon shows, they are stupid, mindless, and not watchable at all.

People of the Classic Nickelodeon era cannot stand most of the newest shows that have taken over Nickelodeon. Many of these people, including me, would be much happier if Nickelodeon established a second channel for all the old shows that many of us miss.

By new shows that are pathetic and mindless, most Classic Nick enthusiasts refer to Spong Bob Squarepants, The Fairly Odd Parents, and other such junk that is corrupting the minds of children today.

That is all I have to say right now.

Bye.

No one will probably ever make a reference to me, seeing as I am so new. But you can call me MSW. I need to put spaces in my name sooner or later.

But, be warned. There is another person on other forums going by the same name. It is not me. It was pointed out to me by one of my friends.

So never talk to that person. This is the only site I use this screen name in. Oh, yeah. I am on one other forum under the same screen name. That site is called Classic Nick Homepage.

If you ever liked Classic Nickelodeon shows, that is one very good site to go to.

Doesn't ANYONE here like Sherlock Holmes? Ok. Here are some of the novels I have had to read for school or book reports. This is just a few of them. I can't remember the rest.

Never Cry Wolf - It was ok, somewhat interesting. Has a movie, but it doesn't make much sense. It's funny though.

Stephen King's Misery - Loved it. Very very good. I suggest watching the movie as well.

The Lord of the Flies - Never finished it. Preferred the movie.

Sherlock Holmes and the Titanic Tragedy - Very good book for mystery lovers. Not by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle though. Doesn't Have a movie.

The Miracle Worker (Screenplay) - Very Very good. I suggest watching the 1960s movie as well. They are awesome.

I prefer reading books that a movie was later based on. I have a good imagination, but I am more of a visual learner. I prefer to see a story happen than have to read a thick book on it.

I prefer to watch a movie, and get an idea of what the book will be like. Than I read the book, using images from the movie to guide me through what is happening. Then I watch the movie again and compare and contrast the two. It is a fun way to understand the meaning of a book's plot.

Try it with any book you know a moviw was made after. The two are always different in many ways, but you will get a better understanding of the book.

Books on tape are always enjoyable too. Try listening to Goldeneye or Sphere on tape.

I hope spmeone starts a movie topic in this forum soon. Although, I'm afraid, my tastes in movies greatly differs from other people's. I prefer older movies to the new ones coming out. Many of the new ones I have no interest in watching. But I LOVE horror movies. Classic horrors to the ones from the 90s. Frankenstein up to Halloween Resurrection. I would really like to discuss a movie topic with someone. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hello there everyone____what game are you playing now_files/frown.gif)

Book?????? Currently I am reading nothing except messages on this board and the occasional book on edible wild plants. And every now and then, mushrooms. (Isn't that a coincidence, seeing I am playing Exile 2?)

I generally don't read very much. Not unless what I am reading peaks my interests. I am a great lover of Sherlock Holmes stories and mysteries in general.

Most of my reading isn't reading at all. I like to listen to Sherlock Holmes mysteries on cassette tape or watch the old Sherlock Holmes movies from the 1940's.

My knowledge of deductive reasoning is somewhat good, but, it doesn't help me much in the Exile games. Other then to guess where something is or what enemy I am bound to face in the next room I walk into.

I also, as you can see by my screen name and my signature, love the Murder She Wrote show and the movie Clue. Both mysteries. Also old movies from as far back as the 1930's. Hence, Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte released in 1964. And as for Little Shop of Horrors, I like the movie and the song, Mean Green Mother.

That's it for me.

Stopping Illegal Cracks for Spiderweb Games in General

There probably are, but I doubt that there is anything that can be done about it. If you stop one website, several more will pop up in its wake. Look what happened to Napster. They closed it down, and dozens more were create.

I can try to help, but I'm not sure that I can promise much. There are sites that can give a company like Spiderweb Software and bunch of software that will help report and prevent anyone from registering illegally.

Exactly what site is this? Maybe I can help to stop it. You can post it here or send me a private message and I'll see what I can do to stop it. It all depends on the websute. If it is commercial, it will be hard to stop, but it is possible. If it is a private site, than it can be stopped more easily.

We need to know what the site is. We can put a stop to it. If there is a way to stop it, we can find a way to do it.

Never mind, I just jumped into the General Forum. I think I will stick will the Exile Boards. I haven't been here long enough to know what you mean by @ or an ASCII game or letters. I'll just stick to Exile.

But, you told me to move my topic to this place. Why bother though. I don't get any comments on mine and everyone has lost me a long time ago. I beeter stick to what I do know. And that is the Exile games.

Names in General

I named mine after people I know in real life or on TV.

Each one is changed from a normal name, into a seemingly ancient sounding name. They are as follows, in full explanation.

Xenia - (Human) - I named this one after Xena Warrior Princess, but decided to give the name an ancient twist, sounds like the name of James Bond's opponent in Goldeneye. Pronounced Zee-nee-uh.

Travista - (Slith) - I named this one after my best friend who moved away back in 6th grade. Instead of using just Travis, I changed it into Travista. When using it for a Slith, it sounds rather reptilian. Pronounced exactly as it looks. Tra-vistuh or Tra-vee-stuh.

Chrissio - (Nephil) - This one I originally named after a person in school who I thought was terribly handsome, but later decided to name it after the person who I had a crush on. Pronounced with a sort of Spanish accent, it's Chris-see-oh, not Chrissy-oh. Both of them were alternates of Chris. Said with a Spanish accent, it almost sounds feline-ish doesn't it.

Bethany - (Nephil) - Named after a friend I once had. She was very shy like me. And I decided to honor her by giving her a place in each of the Exile games. On top of that, it doesn't really sound feline-ish, but does sound sort of ancient. Pronounced Beth-on-nee or Beth-uh-nee.

Celisto - (Slith) - Named after the opponent Xena had in one of her episodes. I have always liked this name since I first heard it. It does sound somewhat reptilian and is definitely ancient. It can be pronounced two ways: Sel-lee-stoh or Kel-lee-stoh.

Nigel - (Human) - I saw someone else uses this name as well. I have liked this name for a while. I can't say whether it is ancient or not, but it seems to be either African or British in origin. It definitely fits a human as a name. Pronounced Neye-gel or Neye-gol

Other Names

Latonia - (Human or Slith) - I used this name before I started using Celisto. It developed from the crush I had on a student in school named Tony. He was thin, not really muscular, but very handsome. He had almost jet black hair, and was very attractive. The name can be used for a human or can be used for a slith. I don't recommend it for a nephil. It isn't very fitting for one. It sounds rather ancient to me. Pronounced La-tone-ya or La-ton-nee-uh.

The ancientness of names is very important to me. It makes for some very interesting game play. And matches the uniqueness of the names in the Exile games. Just as many other people's names do.
