The "I can make it", the number, or the milk part?

You get milk by using a bucket on a dairy cow. What is perverted about that? :P

—Alorael, who considers playing the lottery a kind of charity towards the state running it. Except for honesty and advertising, it's really no different from those less official setups where you can donate to a worthy cause and maybe win the raffle.

The government is not usually equatable with a charity. :P (this is coming from a leftist, btw)

About following people for free stuff: WATCH OUT. I once followed somebody who said "his friend" had an adamantite plate mail for me. When he entered the wilderness I stopped following him and went back. He definetely wanted to kill me.
That is sort of what I thought as well.

So you can fight other PCs in the wilderness? Because you apparently can't in the area I've been in so far. Which means trying to sucker newbies to follow you into the wilderness must be a very popular way of scamming.

And call me uncaring, but the guys who keep shouting "FREE STUF PLZZZZZZZ!!!111" deserve no better. It's like with the Nigeria connection - most people who fall for it are stupid or greedy or both.

No, they probably paid a mage to set up that Quickfire trap. After all, that they can't do it doesn't mean nobody else can. :P

If someone tells me to "follow me for free stuff", should I ignore him, follow him, or trust my instinct and tell him in no uncertain terms to cut the bull and quit trying to scam me?

It is not merely sketchy, it is so fishy it stinks. They claim to make regular backups, but then mysteriously "lose" them when the system actually broke down. Either they didn't make any, or they stored them on the regular servers, which defeats the purpose of a backup.

Even on paid boards, they deliberately block certain words that you can't change - not harmless words like s*** or f***, but really awful ones like "description", which comes out as "de******ion" (apparently they don't like "script").

Originally written by The Almighty Doer of Stuff:

I watched DBZ for a while (the Majin Buu ones) until I saw the episode where Goku becomes a Super Saiyan III. He starts screaming about seven minutes into the show, and it lasts right until the commercials. Then, when the show returns after the commercials, he continues screaming for another five minutes. During this whole time, there is literally nothing happening. That's when I looked at the show with a slightly more critical eye and realized just how little talent the writers have.
quote:
LotR written by the DBZ writers:

"This foe is beyond any of you... his power Level has reached at least 30,000 after fighting every Dwarf in Moria. Ki Fhy to the gate Aragorn, you must lead them on!" The muscles beneath Gandalf's Grey Cloak strained in anticipation of the coming battle.

Soon after, when they were nearly at the gate, the Balrog launched a surprise Ki attack, knocking down Borrmir and stunning Blazing Fist Gimli.

Gandfalf turned to face him. "Fool!" said he, I don't have time for this nonsense... "Pure Flame of Arnor Shield Wall Strike!" The massive energy wall streaked off towards the Balrog, who was knocked flying... though no-one was sure whether or not he had wings.

"Raaaaauuuugggg! Gandalf, I have not shown you my true power!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaa...

five minutes later

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Now I am a Super Balrog 2!!!!! My power level has gone up to 3 million!"

Gandalf just smirked. "I probably shoud have told you, after you left the service of Eru, we figured out a few new tricks. Here's a good one:

Kaaaaaaaaaa------Meeeeeeee------Haaaaaaqa-----
Meeeeee----

-The Balrog laughed in anticipation of Gndalf's feeble attack-

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"

The resulting explosion threw the Balrog back agaoinst the walls of Moria. His expression turned to one of complete disbelief. "Urrrghhh.... Ahhh... Ugghhhhh.... That's...not possible...."

The rest of the Fellowship of the Z Ring stared, twitching slightly and grunting in awe at Gandalf!

Gandalf grinned, "another one of those tricks I learned... I learned how to Hide my POWER level!"
I always thought it was an exaggeration.

That program uses IE, in fact.

Anyway, I can't log in - says the login server is down.

Edit: Can. It was a temporary issue; the number of players has also risen from 60,000 to 100,000 in a matter of minutes, so the problem is probably fixed.

Halfway through the tutorial. Browser-based games are the suck, because the memory goes straight to the rooof exspecially if I have other tabs open. Firefox is straight out, I won't use IE even if I'm paid for it, which leaves me with Opera.

That said, for what it is (browser-based game), it manages a level of graphics that is astounding. It's a bit like playing Myst on a pocket calculator. With all the performance issues that come with that.

Edit: I'm in world 74 for now. Anyone there?

In other news, the Powerball jackpot is up to $340 million. Anyone who lives in the US and is old enough to play doing so? Do you think that participating in the lottery is worth a dollar?

I would argue that even the miniscule chance of winning warrants the trouble of going to a shop and spending a buck on a ticket. It's all about the dream, really.

Divide the total winnings by the odds of winning with a single ticket, and you get the expected value of said ticket. If it's larger than what you pay (in which case there is probably something wrong with the numbers), then it's a good investment. If it's not, then it's only about entertainment. :P

Believe me, I have been procrastinating that this entire year. Perhaps I'll do it soon. But I don't have much hope - there's such a thing as incurable crappiness.

Any chance of finding out how many
1. New topics were added to each forum
2. Topics were replied too (not just new ones)
3. Topics were locked, sorted by mod (giving thuryl another #1 spot here)
4. How many new topics were replied to with the phrase "This was discussed recently, look here."
5. Cardinals does it take to win a World Series.

*this message sponsored by the spammies*

1. I've got a script that does this for General. I've never bothered to extend it to the other boards, although that would be a matter of an hour or so. The posts of General are also being tracked hourly.

2. Less practical, but possible in principle. You'd want to find all the topics on the forum page and see when the last post was made for each. If you only need a cut-off date as in "the last x days", then the simple parameter "DaysPrune=x" in the address will suffice. A script could see how many topics are displayed on the page then.

3. I believe you can count locked topics, and you can see the last post on a locked topic. Since most topics are locked with an explanatory post, the last post date tends to be the lock date. It would be easy to collect that information. Since locked topics stay around and are rarely opened again, this information could even be collected retroactively for the last year.

4. Takes a lot more time than the others. And it could only search for the exact phrase; any typoes or other variations are practically impossible unless you do it manually.

5. Are you referring to the "World Series" of a sport that is played in more than one nation?

You know, if you use Firefox the technology to do this kind of thing is there. There's an extension called "Greasemonkey" or something, that allows you to change how you view a certain site.

With the right script for it, you could change your or other people's title or postcount, or even their post contents (only in your own browser of course). Can you imagine an Ignore list, or a script that changes every post that member #x makes into "AGHUAHUHAUGUAHUHLBB"? :P

Hello JSzewczyk. How do you pronounce your name?

I'm sort of new as well. That is, I've been lurking for a long time, and I had a previous account I think but I don't remember what it was. *rolleyes*

Never posted with it anyway.
