17. Not turning 18 until next July. It's an odd experience, being in college and not being able to drink or drive.

It's traditional to put a few non sequitur tips of the day in. Warcraft had odd tips as well ("Never pet a burning dog"), and I can't swear to it but I'm pretty sure even Microsoft Word had a couple.

1) Some people. I prefer email.

2) How should I know? Do I look like a hobbit to you? (Those of you who have seen my photo would do well to remain silent right about now.)

3) I'd be eligible -- I think most of us here are -- but I fail to see the point of it.

4) I've seen worse.

Dunno. Never heard of that happening before. Does it happen even when you make your own party instead of using a prefab?

GET IT?!?

Who said anything about integers? The idea is that you set z to be some constant whose value depends on the size of the circle (or, in this case, square) you want.

Not both at the same time, I hope, Djur. That would be dangerous.

As for me, I suppose I'm technically guilty of embezzlement.

Scenerio Hub in Blades of Avernum
...b10010b...

Well, let's look at Blades of Exile as our example. In BoE, there is a maximum of 256 terrain, item and monster slots. This is because there are 8 bits (binary digits) used to define each terrain, monster and item, and the maximum number of things you can uniquely define with 8 bits is 2^8, i.e. 256.

At this point you may well say "why not use 16 bits (you have to use a multiple of 8 bits to store a number), so we can have 65536 different terrain slots?" Well, the problem with that is that it's very unlikely that most of those slots will be used, so every scenario file would be padded out with 60000+ terrain, item and monster slots that aren't used, which would take up exorbitant amounts of space. To prevent them from taking up space, Jeff would have to rewrite the way the game handles all these objects, which he's far too lazy and stubborn to do.

Well, that's all it's supposed to do. It also slows your computer down and may cause other problems.

Spyware, as the name would suggest, is software that spies on you. Virus detectors won't detect spyware programs because they're not viruses! Half the time you unknowingly put them on your computer yourself in the process of installing something.

To get rid of it, install AdAware

You've probably somehow set it not to automatically load images and other content. Check your preferences; I don't use IE, so I don't know exactly where you'll find the appropriate option.

Don't take it too personally. Your suggestion is a good one, it's just that these boards are a little RPed out at the moment. Anyway, there's a perfectly good RP going on at the Arena, and another just about to start up.

3. There is no way you can even compare moles to weight unless you know the temperature in the given situation.

Um, what? Number of moles is simply the number of particles in your sample of compound. Particles essentially have constant mass. Temperature has nothing to do with it. Of course, if you were calculating weight, you'd also need to know the gravitational field strength...
