Hey! Alorael your Spanish is superb! And keep in mind that Spanish is more complicated than English, all those annoying conjugations.
Out of curiosity where did you learn it?
I agree with spy.there (that okay for your name?) in that this addictive. Only time constraints keep me from posting comments everywhere.

BTW, I've noticed some like to give links to their homepages or pages they love, so here's my 2 cents.

http://www.the-underdogs.org/

this one is about old games, abandoware sort of stuff. If you like that sort of thing, it's brilliant. If you have no clue, you may want to check it out. A lot of the greatest games ever made were done in the 80's and early 90's. Many of those companies went out of business, but some awesome people in the net have been collecting them for posterity (the web rules. for so many reasons!)

This other:

http://wurb.com/if/index

It's about Interactive Fiction. It may not be your cup of tea, they are basically text adventures, like a book but you write your actions.
A word to the wise, this is a highly addictive medium and you may lose youself in realities aplenty so much that time and space as we so erroneously interpret will turn upside down worse than an omellete done by a monkey on heat and skribbane.
(which may be a good thing, IMAGE(smile001.gif) )

Cheers!

All have nicknames, and it is not so easy to recognize them. Member 3608 is TGM (The Great Mister), member 66 is Arctic or Arctic Wolf, member 3151 is Alec, and member 4 is METRIC TON (Terror's Martyr).

--what the last paragraph of Alo's message translates to according to the Fish

Hmm. METRIC TON -- do I sense another moniker?

Thanks, Alec!

I played a couple of his games, but had never gone to his site, now it's bookmarked. He's a reinassance man.

Might as well get my two cents in.

Hello!

I had a couple of questions, I looke in the faq but didn't really found anything about them.

1) What is spamming?

2) What is double (triple, cuadruple, etc) posting?
(will this post be a double posting because I just posted a message a short while back?)

Cheers!

Double posting is posting two messages in a row on the same topic. I shall post once more and demonstrate SPAM (Stupid Pointless Annoying Message) as well.

Haha, LOL.

...........
If my message consisted of only the above, it would be considered Spam and it is looked down upon. This post also demonstrates double posting as well, as I posted twice in a row on the same topic within a period of 24hrs.

If I ever need to add something on (usually following the 24hr rule) I can use the edit button, like I did right now, and maybe even put that I edited the post like so:

Edit: I edited this post just because. Although you do not need to explicitly say that you edited a post, since you can already see whether or not I did so, it's still useful.

Thanks!!!
So this posting, even though within the same thread and within a 24hr peroid will not be a double post because I am actually posting this to thank you for the posts you just posted about the questions I made about posting, right?

As for the SPAM, understood as well.

Double posting is posting twice in a row on the same topic. No, you did not double post because there were two posts in between when you last posted and when you actually did. Here, let me give you a good example of an 11-in-a-row post that I found in the archive:

Ugh...how am I supposed to post spaces in a URL address on this board? %20 tags return errors...

Edit: NM, I got rid of the spaces. This should work...

Actually, after hearing a complaint or two, I'll tolerate multiple posting if the second post is both not spam and not an extension of the first post. For example, if you're going to write two long replies to previous posts in the topic, you can feel free to quote and address them both in separate posts.

The edit button should still be used to make changes and add postscripts, however.

Do we have to have this argument? Because I've been building up a stockpile of flawed and inflammatory anti-vegetarian arguments, and really don't want to have to share them.

Lets just agree that everybody likes brains, only some like them on their plates and others inside their skulls.

...Anti-vegetarian, you say?

RC, that picture is a good argument for vegetarianism. I'm not vegetarian myself, but I do prefer vegetables to meat, especially red meat. Ugh.

It has a nice salad nearby...yum! But then again, that's just my opinion...I could care less what I eat as long as it's edible and nutritious.

The nutritionalist jury is still out as to whether veggies are actually healithier eaters, although I think the majority of them conclude that simply removing meat from your diet is not in itself going to make you healthier, and in fact can remove an important source of nutrition and trace elements. You can get said nutrition and trace elements without meat, but unfortunately most veggies don't know how and end up much less healthy individuals, albeit thinner.

I think you misinterpreted. I didn't mean the sort of hamburger that is made from a cow, I meant the sort of hamburger that comes from Germany.

And a Berliner for dessert? Sure.

?Alorael, who has nothing against consuming meat. He isn't a huge fan of it, but not for ethical reasons. If God hadn't wanted humans to eat meat, He wouldn't have had them evolve canines.
