Snow! in General

Tonight, as I type, and in fact since early afternoon, the first frozen precipitation of the year for my area is falling. I absolutely love snow. I don't even mind shoveling out the car and clearing the walk. There is just something about the pristine whiteness that everything has just after a snowfall. It is the best thing about winter in my opinion. Unfortunately, the forecast is for only about 6 inches here, but it's better than nothing. So, what are your on snow, and how has your winter been for snow? Apologies to those of you in the southern hemisphere that are experienceing summer at the moment.

For some reason, that set me into a fit of laughter.

I agree. Final Fantasy IX is by far my favorite, followed by VII. The end battle sequence was extremely dissapointing, however. Kuja was a pretty dumb villain anyway.

Could someone please tell me how exactly FYT should be used? An example would be nice, so I don't make the same mistake twice.

I liked everything but the story and characters in VIII. Of course, VIII wasn't nearly as bad as X-2, and I doubt that I will like XII either. I played the demo that came with Dragonquest VIII, and hated the combat sytem. That system works fine for Kingdom Hearts, but Final Fantasy has always been, and should always be turn-based in the style that all the others have.

There is a chance, however small, that someone could fake a registration by entering random or sequential numbers (More likely with sequential if you keep at it, but if you do, you have no life).

Not to mention Jeff himself. He doesn't even know what some of the things are for anymore, like the puzzle box. I agree though. All the little mysteries of Nethergate were great. I'll always love that game, especially since it was my introduction to Spiderweb. The little things that seemed like they were important, but actually weren't were a nice touch. I'm pretty sure that the wishes fish had no purpose other than to confuse. All the Slylock items were cool, and the finding those elusive Nether Arts spells. Seriously, I will always consider Nethergate to be one of the best RPGs ever and certainly the best Spiderweb game.

Considering the fact that of the 3 choices, I've only beaten VII, I guess I'll go for One-Winged Angel. I only ever played VI at a friend's house and thought VIII was a steaming pile of crap. IX, however, that was a great game, the best Final Fantasy, in my opinion.

27 years, if I remember correctly. Of course, the current hatred of the United States is a direct result of the meddling we did in Iran back then. I mean, we overthrew their democratically elected prime minister in the early 50's because he didn't want to give us oil. If someone did that to your country, even if it was 50 years ago, wouldn't you be mad at them and justifiably so? That's might not be what sparked Ayatollah Khomeini's revolt, but the CIA taking out Mossadegh was one of the reasons that the people hated the Shah and the United States, and was a large factor in Khomeini's revolution.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one here with a love for the Order of the Stick. This one, the one immediately after the Dintiradan mentioned, is a hilarious Ilithid strip too.

Thanks Micawber. I was thinking only in terms of Windows, which is a very dangerous and evil think to do. Out of habit and because it's easier, I usually tend to ignore capitalization when typing a URL. That was a great riminder why I shouldn't be complacent.

Arrna, you're quite welcome. I made that list just recently when I was playing through A1 again and very annoyed by the lack of a quest list, so I understand your frustration. I wish Jeff would do an update to A1 that adds a quest list and lets you look by right-clicking, but I probably shouldn't hold my breath.

So, Tyranicus and Tyranosaurus mean the same thing apparently, at least in Synergy's mind. Far be it from me to say what the meaning of a made-up name is. My only objection is that it makes me sound old.

I really don't understand why so many people don't like Synergy and/or his posts. I think he makes some really insightful points a lot of the time. His posts can be long and perhaps a bit wordy, but they're still interesting.

Alright, something weird is going on. I fixed the link, but the only problem was that I didn't capitalize the folder on Aran's FTP in my link, which shouldn't have mattered but somehow did.

I'm not sure how helpful this will be, but I compiled a list of all the side quests in Avernum 1 a while back. I just posted it online here. Thanks to Aran for his webspace.

It can be rather hard to find out the gender of someone on a message board. Sometimes it's easy if the name is obviously one gender or another. In Nicothedes's case, that doesn't work. I was just as surprised as you guys were. I don't mean that there is anything worng with being a girl of course, it's just that I usually presume that someone is male on a board such as this because most of them are. I didn't even know Dareva was a girl until a recent Blades chat. Although that name is a bit more feminine, so I should have had a clue.
