I consider myself a Pagan, with elements of Bokononism. This may seem like an attempt to mock the concept of theism, rather than expressing my true beliefs, but honestly, the combination captures my outlook as well as can be expected without an extremely long rant.

Photoshop provides a satisfactory illustration, however. Here's about what you would see:

I learned the white on black trick a while back. I prefer, however, the keyboard shortcut that does the same, but keeps colour. Essentially, everything looks like a colour negative. It's rather amusing to casual walk by a computer, type Control Alt Apple 8, and watch the owner try to correct it. Sometimes, though, it only goes to white on black. Still, fun.

Why did I always assume that the three canister version of the Ornk would be an Oozebeast? It would be a darn useful creation, much better than Pyroroamers.

I just said that I didn't make the message board.
Or the thread.
I am not an idiot.

I wasn't attempting to imply that it was you that made the mistake. I meant simply, and perhaps undeservedly, that the individual who did create the boards (I was aware that you are not this person) had made the very mistake you intended to correct: letting just anyone be a mod. Next time, I will make sure to clarify, just to make sure the point is fully intact when it reaches you.

I seem to remember Diki having something to say about topics named after Spiderweb members. If it weren't for the recent prune, I'd go back and quote it. The general opinion was negative, regardless.

"Perhaps I could start a forum... Wait, no. That's not a good idea. I don't have anything special to add to it, and there's millions already out there, dozens devoted to Spiderweb." See how easy that was? I understand that you didn't start it, but given the prolific nature of your modship, you might as well have.

I've always lived in Colorado, Muffin. However, the blizzard of '03 didn't really effect the part of the Western Slope where I live (near Glenwood Springs, if you know the area at all), so it didn't really effect me in the same way that the Storm King and Coal Seam fires did.

There seems to be a great deal of discussion about floods. I suppose I should be thankful, since it would be bordering on impossible to flood my area. However, the very real presence of drought seems a poor replacement.

Western Colorado is not prone to disasters: we've got a few wildfires (like those currently raging not 30 miles from where I sit), rockslides and avalanches, and the occasional blizzard. Looking for a little perspective, I was hoping to open the conversations on natural disasters and their variance by local. Anyone have any good stories?

Fine. I suppose there are worse ways to go. I did sort of like the idea of ending with one of those Terregen sunset pics though. But, as the great philosopher Jagger once said, You Can't Always Get What You Want.

So, the other topics were spam, but this one... it's allowed to exist. Sad to think that the final post in the Richard White Games forum might be part of a flame war against nectarines. Oh well. Such is Spiderweb.

Very true. Where would Spiderweb be without Iffy?
Edit: On second thought, please don't answer that.

Names mean little, particularly obvious ones. When I first came to Spiderweb, I went by Mark Greenwood. Obviously, I didn't take credit for the naming of Greenwood Island in G3.

Am I correct in surmising that the idea you're making reference to entails attempts to make the last post in this forum? I imagine that such a competition would result in such a landslide of posts that the UBB would have the greatest meltdown of all time. I'm satisfied with having at least posted here.

I'm sure Aran will sue me for copywrite infringement, but I would also like to pay my respects. And given that the best item I have to do so is a Terragen shot of a sunset... Oh well.

9000!!! in General

So who got 9000? Tyran? An Aran clone? I guess we're all waiting for the big prize: 10,000. Given that we hit 8000 on groundhog's day, I'm betting we get there by Thanksgiving, particularly if Jeff puts out a new game by that time.

Edit: IFM's an 8000. Does anybody find it hard to believe that, when I posted about the switch-over back in early February, he wasn't even a member? And just look at him now <moderate sarcasm/>.

Nope. You've got to wait until you hit 50. Then the next milestone is 250. After that, the distance grows exponentially until only the likes of Alorael have a chance of summiting.

Do we? Excellent. I have only ever met one other person with a birthday on July 9. Not that I've technically "met" you. Still, cool.

Actually, when your post count is low enough that an interstate exists for that number, celebration is not really an order. IBTL
