Macs are dependable, stable computers.

PCs are non-dependable, instable, hackable computers with lots of games and I love it.

I can simply say, use Mac if you like a good office computer or use PC if you like MicroSoft propaganda, games and hacking. In case you like both of them, buy both; I have both a windows laptop and a stationary mac, I love them both. :)

Hmm... should I buy RedHat Linux, too? ;)

As far as I know, the longest novel I ever "made" was on 5 000 words. But since the plots were so poor of most of them, I trashed any future plans on working on them (This does not mean I removed them; they are still there, wasting up some 100KB or something.).

I would like to join that contest. However, I am busy all the time, got circa 13 projects, working on them all and I already got "Avernum - the Pit of Hell" to finish.

Have anybody else ever made an Exile/Avernum novel or attempted to do so?

Ask me in a year and it may have happened. Trust me, but I am very popular amoung the girls. I do not know why, though. :confused: I think Sanna has gotten a crush on me. She is a close friend of mine and when she saw the photo of Christina, she sort of freezed, stared at the picture and looked quite sad. The problem is, I like her a lot too. Christ, being a teenager is such a pain! Emotions are so big, strong, powerful and then they just disappear and you are in a drama, jes's...

EDIT: Well, I should talk about it with them and sort things out. You have to be honest, you know.

1) What is your gender?
*Checks his pants*, Male.

2) How religious would you say that you are: Not at all, somewhat, or very?
Philosophic, I like religion since it is historical and easy to debate about.

3) Are you vegetarian or vegan?
With the right seasoning, I could eat a shoe. Yeah, I eat everything.

4) A trolley is running out of control down a track. In its path are 5 people who have been tied to the track. Fortunately, you can flip a switch that will lead the trolley down a different track. Unfortunately, there is a single person tied to that track. Should you flip the switch?
My deduction says that I will not have to take stand for such a situation in reality. Doing nothing would be more easy to excuse in case of failure than taking action. I suppose that my relationship to these people are non-existant, right?

5) As before, a trolley is hurtling down a track towards five people. You are on a bridge under which it will pass, and you can stop it by dropping a heavy weight in front of it. As it happens, there is a very fat man next to you - your only way to stop the trolley is to push him over the bridge and onto the track, killing him to save five. Should you proceed?
I am too weak in my arms to push such a fleshpiece. And I would never be so insane to deliberately do something so controversial

6) As before, a trolley is hurtling down a track towards five people, all children under 10. You can divert its path by flipping a switch, but if you do, the trolley will continue down an alternate track towards five senior citizens. Do you flip the switch?
Oui. Absit individia, old people, but the future generation of humans are not you.

Thank you, lads and ladies. It's just that... You were all one day late, hahaha! My birthday was on the 9th, not the 10th, ah well. Better late than never, oui? :)

As to still any eventual curiosity about any sort of gifts, cakes and such traditional stuff, I received following:
-An Acer Aspire 3003WLC laptop, 1547MHz, 64MB VRAM, 512MB DDR, CD-RW/DVD Combo and 60GB HDD. I am currently posting this with it.
-A bunch of post cards, containing a bunch of papers also known as money.
-A cookbook. Time to make another "Eagle's recipies"-topic! :P
-A tasty, creamy (and fattening) birthday cake.
-Motivation to missuse the local school network to download tons of games and programs. Already downloaded every SW game released and over ten other softwares. The rule went "No downloading on the school computers". Who said nothing about downloading on the school network? Oh, I love loopholes...

Too bad I did not have a rocking pirate birthday as someone else we know, yar. "Only a Mister Übernerd, missusing school network to install more crap on his brand new pizza carton"-birthday.

As for the topic, why not create a group topic for birthdays, such as "Celebrations" or "Our birthdays"? Oh, of course, to allow SPAM. :P

Oh, and it's somehow ironic that you guys remember my birthday while my girlfriend do not, even as I told her that trice.

EDIT: By the way, Thralni, I am not dead yet.

My girlfriend loves my british accent. I use a combination of english and south scotish dialect and somehow I have completely managed to rid myself of my swedish accent while speaking english. However, I can no longer sound american while speaking english, I just sound like a london-lad using the words of someone who comes from Maine.

In the MOD file it said it was named "Fugue" but there can be some spelling differences due to the different languages.

I have never heard anyone trying to medically "cure" people with the retardation that Asperger Syndrome is. However, since Bipolar Disorder, which my dearest Christina was born with, is caused by a disorder in the brain that causes a state similiar to the one caused by use of cannabis you can treat Bipolar Disorder with Lithium. I do not know much about the treatment but it works as a stabiliser.

Asperger Syndrome is though a retardation that causes the person to have high logical intelligence but low emotional intelligence and lack of perception. AS is not a disease, it is not a mental disorder like Bipolar Disorder, it is a milder neuropsychiatric retardation.

Grown-up people with AS mostly experience very few of the draw-backs of AS since they have mellowed out and improved their perception and emotional intelligence. The majority of known "Aspergers" are men. That is due to differences between the sex. Symptoms on men with AS are clearer than those on women. AS is mostly diagnosed in young age, but there have been some adults that has been diagnosed with it.

People with AS almost always have a "specialexpertice" or a strong interest for a fixed subject. In my case it is personal developement, philosophy and languages; in the case of Jonathan, one of my classmates, it is politics and philosophy. We with AS are likely to learn and expertise ourselves in our special interest, as for instance english. I love english, I study every day and therefore, I gain perfect grades (116/118 on last test :D ).

In case you did not know, I live in a dormitory with six other classmates, divided in three departments. All the lads I live with are examples of AS "victims". For instance, Björk in the SN04 class, whenever he tells a joke, he always add a "du-du-doom-doom-dish", an onomatopoetic (audio-imitation) noise of a drum snare. My classmates are also likely to repeat the same joke or discuss the same subject as they already have done before. This is because people with AS have repetive thoughts, they come again.

Brain analytics have shown that there is a difference in the brain structure between a person with AS and one without. A person with AS got a brain that is structured vertically like the inside of a piano. That makes a brain that can store lots of things but "scans" slowly. A regular person without AS has a brain structured horisontally, like waves. That makes a brain that is less suitable for large storeage but instead "scans" quickly. This practically-based theory is supported on computer harddrive experiments. Computers with the storeage units placed vertically, like in a match-box, could store much more but took longer time to find a specific file. The horisontal harddrive could store less but could easier find a specific file. This is because the vertical is less "sharp", the files are less readable while the horisontal was "sharp" and could read files without problems. How this affects the person, I do not know, but I suppose it could explain why I have a memory like an elephant but not how I can remember everything so clearly.

End of class! You will have to read pages number 117 to 123 in the text book as homework. See you next Tuesday... just kidding. ;)

Thralni, that's called buffering. If you use a slower connection like a dial-up, it may download only part of it and play while it downloads the rest.

For how I made it listen-able; I noticed the file-format was MOD. I therefore transfered the file to a computer with Windows, opened it in ModPlug Tracker (You can download it on http://www.modplug.com and converted it to MP3.

Originally written by CPeters:

A little info on Aspbergers Syndrome - taken from my personal experience and from talking with various psychiatrists and psychologists:

Aspbergers Syndrome is part of the Autism disorder, but at the very mild end of the spectrum. People with Aspbergers Syndrome tend to be eccentric, socially awkward, and highly intelligent. They usually end up with a small selection of interests at which they absolutely excell. A lot of people with Aspbergers Syndrome lack empathy in many cases - often allowing them to be coldly analytical in those cases where than simply cannot empathise with another person's point of view.

Finally someone who actually understands me! Yeah, I am an expert in my interests and since my interests are so vast that it extends to everything, I simply am good at everything. English, philosophy, medicine, history, civics and other theoretical subjects are mostly my favourites and I got A:s and B:s in all those subjects.

As for my friends, none of them were remarkably clever and I always had twice as much in scores, ranks and in general I was always right when it came to coldly analysing stuff. However, I had problems with my social life since I could not understand how other people thinks. That problem has decreased with time, though. Most of my old problems are today non-existant. However, I tend to be coldly analytical and honest. I never lie to people because I can not.

My pompous style comes, obviously, from my growth. I was always best in everything and I work hard to stay so. This, I have seen, combined with my honesty and cold analytical view, has caused to offend people and made me look like a cold, pompous, superstitious pedant. But when I state something (without deliberately sounding sarcastic), I have usually a good reason to why I stated that something.

My, I can not belive I have been here for half a year without explaining this...

I have heard a good myth:

In a british high school, the last test in philosophy was coming up. All the students were being nervous for it and studied hard. At the day of the test, the teacher put a chair on top of his desk and said, "Use everything you have learnt to prove that this chair does not exist". The students started writing pages after pages but one student only wrote one line and went. When the results came, he had the best score of the class. He had written, "What chair?"

Belive and it will be true. Science is like that. You come up with a theory, test it and confirm it is true. If a scientist or more says something is true, It is true.

We humans are so much more manipulateable than we want to belive. Adolf Hitler's success, Stalin and the wave is proof of that. But what if all that is false? Hmm...

Good to hear you are bored.

I spent the morning, yawning, taking a slow shower. After that, I spent 15 minutes on making a cartoon of Thralni's fortune-teller gig. Too bad, I found out that I had no floppy to transfer it and release it on the forum, dang.

Oh, and to not fall asleep again, I read Oliver Twist for ten minutes.

"Avernum - Pit of Hell" is based on "Exile - Escape From the Pit" but only loosly. The novel does not follow the story in Exile as you would had seen if I gave a larger sample. Sidequests will be plenty in the novel as they can give tasteful turnings and twistings to the story, which I will be glad to add.

I have written 6 pages so far. I write on the pauses between lessons and I can not use my Macintosh since I have to use floppy disks to transfer it to an other computer and the hitch is, no computer around has one. However, I am sure I will get a laptop on my birthday this sunday. The novel is stored on a USBmemory-drive.

However, I am not only writing an Avernum novel but I am remixing the BGM from the Exile games too. Later about that when I am done.

I do not know when I will be done with it, how long it will be and it is too early to estimate anything. However, I may give you all a sample. :)

From "Avernum - Pit of Hells":

”Ha-ha! In you go, you woman freak,” lead the words that would echo in my ears as I was thrown through the portal. A great vertigo surrounded me, green, purple, blue and red in a blurry mix. A whooshing sound passed through my ears along with the echoing words as I fell on my nose in an alien place. I steadied my feet on the hard, moist ground and looked around. This was the exile I had been thrown to. A man waved to me and greeted me with a “welcome to Avernum!”

I did not believe my ears, I did not believe my eyes, I believed nothing. I was standing in a cave, lit by green self illuminating fungi, crude walls and streets forming a supposed fort, men and women working in dirty clothes and with crudely made tools, all with a remarking pale face. The man that had greeted me and explained what this place was had directed me to a chain of stone houses where one had a large wooden sign in an odd color. I went and knocked on the door.
Once inside, I was greeted by a man in his 30’s, honing a dagger with a stone. “Welcome, new avernite. It is a bittersweet pleasure to meet you.” His face was pale as well; I stared. He frowned, “What’s the matter? Why are you staring me in the face?” I blurted out, “You are pale, you are all pale!” The man frowned and explained to me, “In this damned caverns it is common to be pale. I heard it was caused by ?the lack of sun’, whatever that means. Only new avernites got brown skin.” The confusion raged inside my shaken head, I had been thrown to a world where the sun does not shine, where fungi lit the place instead. “Have you never seen the sun?” The man shakes his head as a reply. “Ah, well, I can not really explain it. It does not matter, I came to fetch supplies as the man said.” The man stopped honing the dagger and went out through a door in the east wall and came back with a bag with some gold coins, food, blankets and a dagger. “Here you go, miss. Oh, and watch out for nephilims to the north. They have been raiding farms up there. If you are a good fighter, I suggest you travel west and assign for a mission. If not, I can only suggest you to go north and work in the mines.” I snickered, “It will be west then, I was thrown down here for being a better warrior than the men.” “Good luck to you then, Miss, and be safe.” I waved back with a smile as thank. It was time to explore this place.


Any comment is welcome.
