Well, I'm glad to see the removal of the spambots. Maybe the "Welcome to our newest member" feature (if there is one) will actually have some meaning.

Nice Iffy, I gave up on trying to create scenario over a month ago, so I lend you my congratulations.

I never really noticed any gender specification with the exception of Realmz. If I remember correctly, females had a +1 bonus to dexterity, while males had a +1 bonus to strength. It wasn't really much of a bonus either way, so it probably didn't matter.

I've only seen the second Lord of the Rings movie, and though I thought the screenplay was impressive, it was rather lacking in the plot's progression. I'm not sure if I'd want to see this upcoming film, and I personally prefer C.S. Lewis over J.R.R. Tolkien.

Unless you know the man personally, I seriously doubt he was trying to fix Christian convictions within you. I think he was simply expressing the same story in a completely different light. You know… a creative retelling of an already existing story.

I think there is a little bit of Christian conviction withing the series, but yes, it is basically just an allegorical series having a fair amount based upon the bible (especially The Last Battle).

Les Miserables, though my favorite book ever, seems a strange choice for an AP English class. What's next? The Brothers K?
Well, my English teacher also happens to be my French teacher. Nonetheless, she tends to assign us college level material, so...

I've said before in about every thread of similar discussion: a revival of the 80's RPG Omega. Whatever Jeff does though, I want a guy with a silver hammer named Maxwell.

Oh, or howabout dinosaurs! Did anyone else think the Whirling Thrasher / Chitrach Queen / Pit Crawler in Avernum 5 looked like a Velociraptor? Fighting dinosaurs would be fun!
I thought the chitrach queen was some sort of mutated dragon at first, I also though the prime sentinel kind of looked like paper mache (spelling?).

My English class had prevented me from any leisurely reading now. Currently I'm reading endlessly through books about the middle ages, and then she's going to cram Les Miserables on top of that. If I ever have children, I'll make sure to warn them about taking an AP English class during their sophomore year.

MicroSoft XP SP3 RC2 (final) from Windows Update released Apr 21 2008. I've updated both my XP machines smooth as silk. You can wait till the 29th and get it as a critical update.
My iMac notes this event with simple laughter. Meanwhile, the Windows machine on the other side of the room is unimpressed, as it still uses Windows 2000 Professional.

Quite frankly, I lost interest in the deathmatch simply because it took so long to revive. I must say though, match number seven is impressive.

I find it funny a discussion about SPAM digressed into a discussion about politics, or are they both the same thing? :P

I've never seen SPAM in a grocery store, let alone eaten SPAM. Regardless, the ingredients don't appeal to me.

I don't think anyone would really want to expend the funds to research a doomsday bomb, which in itself would probably start a very messy war.

My dad's actually one of the delegates. When the director of the convention saw that Ron Paul was winning by a landslide, the director walked out. And as the Reno Gazette Journal said today, their contract to use the Peppermill Casino as their meeting hall had expired, during the middle of the convention! The same thing also happened in Louisiana, and of course, the convention there was canceled as well.

All the snow melted last week, and it was certainly a long winter, and a rather windy one as well. So now the river is about to burst it's banks into the main street, and the creek by my house is swollen. :)

What's nice though, is it was 55 degrees Fahrenheit today. Maybe, just maybe, I can go hiking in a month and a half, given most of the snow melts off the mountains. The most amazing part though, is the trees have buds now, and there's tulips popping up all over our property. (I have no idea what they're doing in Nevada)

We recently finished Macbeth in English, which now replaces Romeo and Juliet in my mind as the worst story I've ever read. I think the only other literature I haven't liked is Fallen Dragon, which says a lot.
