Wine, Exile II, and the OLPC XO in Tech Support

If Exile II works in Wine, it stands to reason that Exile III would as well. The Linux port of Exile III is notoriously unstable. If I were you I would try the Windows version in Wine.

If I could play Avernum on my iPhone,that would be awesome. Targeting would be a breeze on this platform, and since it uses a version of OS X, which Jeff already develops for, I would imagine that it wouldn't be hard to port it.

I like the idea of doing them here too, but I don't know that Jeff will allow it, with his own rating system. My other idea was Shadow Vale, but that will probably go down in 5-6 years, maybe less. Another benefit of doing them here would be we could have 5+ moderators to adjust scores.
Umm, I'm not planning on taking my webspace down anytime soon. I use the same hosting space for my company's website. Why didn't anyone mention this to me while I was in the chat? I'm more than willing to set it up right now. Bain and TM do a good job with the current CSR, so I'll just create a public forum where only they can create topics. Bain, just let me know if you want to do this. It will take all of 5 minutes to set up.

Avernum 1 and up all run in Leopard just fine. It's a shame you can't run Exile (Well, you can with various emulation solutions), but Avernum is actually a remake of Exile, so you get the same plot and setting. The original Nethergate will not work either, but Nethergate: Resurrection is a remake of that.

Well, actually, if a mod has a custom title, it shows up in all forums, superceding their Blademaster in the forums they moderate. Many mods (Alorael, Ephesos, Randomizer, me, etc) do not have custom titles, and therefore have our regular titles on forums we do not moderate. Furthermore, Alorael has never, does not, and will never have a custom title here on Spidweb.

The 10.5 graphical errors have all gone away with 10.5.2. The slowness of the older games was only a 10.4 thing. So, if you're running Leopard, and it's fully updated, you should have no problems.

The old Communist state of Yugoslavia broke up into the republics of Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Macededonia, Slovenia, and Yugoslavia in 1991-1992. Yugoslavia became a loose confederation called the Union of Serbia & Montenegro in 2003. In 2006, Montenegro declared independence, and Serbia and Montengro became two separate countries.

2008 - 2003 = 5

Have you looked on a map lately? It's been like 5 years since Yugoslavia existed. :P

Our troops are necessary in the former Yugoslavia if we are serious about supporting Kosovo's independence.

Secondly, North Korea would be a very real threat to its southern neighbor if we pulled out. That was one of our few wars to stop the spread of Communism that we actually won. We can't let it bite us in the butt 50 years later.

This has been on the news for the past couple weeks. Unfortunately, with Russia on the Security Council, the UN will not recognize Kosovo as a nation any time soon.
