TM hates VIII. Personally, I think its only redeeming quality is watching Quistis and Rinoa in the FMVs

That is hardly an accurate representation of all Americans. Also, I do no believe anyone has the title of "qeen of great britain." :P

However, the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is Elizabeth II of the House of Windsor. Technically, she's just Elizabeth I in Scotland, but that's not really a big deal.

Jeff could theoretically use OpenGL, since it is cross-platform, but you should know that he always makes the Mac version first. Also, there is no need to make these games 3D.

the holy catholic church,
We're outside of Ireland, so I can safely make this observation: I think it's a bit funny that the text is exactly identical for the Protestants apart from that line. :P

Actually, a lot of Protestants say that line too, using "catholic" in the original sense of "universal" -- that is, a universal communion of believers.

Indeed. I have been and always will be a Lutheran. The only difference between how we say the Apostle's Creed and how the Catholics do is that they capitalize the word, and we don't. :P

Salmon has a good point. I mean, if someone wanted to cheat, they could do so anyway by starting the scenario before the appointed day. I think we can trust people to constrain themselves to 24 hours. Now, if someone makes an epic, we know they cheated. :P

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of Heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord
who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day, he rose again,
entered into Heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
he holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting

Amen.

I don’t want to focus on the world wars alone though, because my point was that the conflicts of the past century mark this period as unique. That can be seen from the fact that three times as many died as in the past 19 centuries. But if you want to focus on the world wars then look at the link to wikipedia and compare the lesser of the two to any other war you’d like by comparing the map that shows how much of the world was involved and the chart that has the numbers and see why any historical reference you can think of will say that WWI was unprecedented in scale and thus bears the title World War 1.
In 1800, the world's population was approximately 978 million. 50 years before that, it was only 791 million. In 1900, the population had increased to 1.65 billion, and in 2005, it was a staggering 6.45 billion. No wonder more people died in the past century. The world's population increased exponentially. There were more people around that [b]could[/b] die.

Edit: Well, for one thing, I don't have an Intel.

The incremental updates are free. When 10.5 comes out, you have to pay for that. Also, Apple is continuing to support PPC with every update, so that excuse doesn't fly. The system should have prompted you automatically when the updates were made available, but you can do it manually by clicking the Apple logo in the upper left corner and selecting 'Software Update". It really is a good idea, since these updates fix various bugs and security holes.

Also, I checked out the inverted color thing. It does look pretty cool. They have the option on Windows, but it just switches black and white. THis inverts the entire screen.

First off, Mac is not an acronym. :P
Secondly, Basilisk II runs perfectly well in Vista.

You forgot X-2, Tactics, Crystal Chronicles, and probably a few others I'm forgetting. Also, you don't have a "Yes. I've played all of them" option for the first question, which meant that I was unable to truthfully answer that question. :P

Most likely a typo. That title needs to be manually entered when someone is banned, so it's not hard for that to happen.
