RW created Ocean Bound and Galactic Core as well as the universe. I believe I understand now where things like quantum mechanics, general relativity, and platypuses come from.

Things work, they just aren't all that entertaining or spectacular.

Ocean Bound, Galactic Core, and the universe. I wonder if that was the order he made them in.

He made the Galactic Core universe, then was displeased by it and created ours.

We're living in The Universe 1.0.0, which was its initial release. We're just waiting for the patch.

Unfortunately, since Chromite Software (the "front" company for Richard White's Universe Creation Department) went belly-up things are in a bit of a mess at the moment, what with the next version of reality being repossessed by the bank until Chromite's debts are paid. Lawyers got involved soon thereafter. Like I said, messy.

I told RW that if he hadn't put off releasing the 1.0.1 patch, he wouldn't have to deal with seized assets and lawyers, since banks and lawyers were two of the things that were giong to be removed with the next update.

Another unfortunate aspect of The Universe 1.0.0 is that due to a slight error in line 6,432,766,349,448,872,395,334,773 of the source code, Richard White accidentally imprisoned himself in his own creation. Though he is not strictly bound by its physical laws, he must maintain a degree of "nativeness" in order to avoid litigation. And at this point he needs to keep every cotton-picking New Zealand penny he lays his hands on.

So now, when we reach Forum number 6,432,766,349,448,872,395,334,773, Richard White will be able to free himself from the prison that is earth, and get to work on Universe 1.0.1.

No, not exactly.

When Forum 6,432,766,349,448,872,395,334,773 arrives, it will be the materio-psionic manifestation of that error in our universe. Once it has materialized, RW will be permanently locked out of the source code, and only Forum 6,432,766,349,448,872,395,334,773 will be able to make changes, propogating the original error out of proportion to transform all of Time and Space into its plaything to torment for all eternity.

It is the harbinger of inescapable doom, not the instrument of our salvation.

Aw, shoot. I hate inescapable doom. Can't we get a second opinion here? Something along the lines of, "Inescapable doom? Heck, no! It's free beer!"

It's not exactly the same as free, but open source beer is the next best thing.

It is the harbinger of inescapable doom, not the instrument of our salvation.

It might be possible for Drakefyre to enter certain settings for the six septillion four hundred thirty-two sextillion seven hundred and sixty-six quintillion three hundred and forty-nine quadrillion four hundred and forty-eight trillion eight hundred and seventy-two billion three hundred and ninety-five million three hundred and thirty-four thousand seven hundred and seventy-third forum that will indirectly affect the erronious line in the code and fix it.

However, this requires that he first creates a memory overflow by opening the six septillion four hundred thirty-two sextillion seven hundred and sixty-six quintillion three hundred and forty-nine quadrillion four hundred and forty-eight trillion eight hundred and seventy-two billion three hundred and ninety-five million three hundred and thirty-four thousand seven hundred and seventy-second forum and spamming it with the same number of posts. It remains to be hoped that this backdoor to the code remains unclosed; otherwise the universe will segfault and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable.

And that's enough for today, aye?

INSERT INTO forums (id, name, description) VALUES (6432766349448872395334773, 'Destiny',
'This is RW's final appearance to the boards.')
I doubt that's as relevant as it should be, but it does show how easy it is to add the forum.

It won't have the real effect unless the preceding indices are filled.

<?php
for ($i=20;$i<6432766349448872395334773;$i++) {
$sql = "INSERT INTO forums (id, name, description)
VALUES (6432766349448872395334773, 'Filler $i',
'This is pointless board #$i.');";
mysql_query($sql,$link);
}
$final_query="INSERT INTO forums (id, name, description) VALUES (6432766349448872395334773, 'Destiny',
'This is RW's final appearance to the boards.')";
mysql_query($sql,$link);
apocalypse();
?>
Now you're cookin'. That is, you would be if there was enough diskspace. Too bad.

There must be that much memory on RW's computer.

Oh, and
<?php
for ($i=20;$i<6432766349448872395334773;$i++) {
$name = "Filler ".$i;
$desc = "This is pointless board #".$i;

$sql = "INSERT INTO forums (id, name, description) VALUES (".$i.", '".$name."', '".$desc."')";
mysql_query($sql);
}
$final_query="INSERT INTO forums (id, name, description) VALUES (6432766349448872395334773, 'Destiny',
'This is RW's final appearance to the boards.')";
mysql_query($final_query);
apocalypse();
?>
Might take a little time to execute.

It has been running for all eternity, since the Dawn of Time And when it finishes, the apocalypse will be upon us!

What, you cannot see the forums that are already there? That is only because of your lack of vision, sir. :)

Prize chickens of course. I heard rumours about them decending from the almighty chicken gods, you know. One of the three chickens he has wears a yellow hat with a huge mickey mouse cartoon on it.

Are you sure you're not confusing it with a servant mind? I know there's a servant mind or two responsible for all implant emissions, but we're not feeding them. They have specially trained spoon/ferrets for that.

—Alorael, who doesn't want to talk about the aborted fork/ferret project. Good lives were lost that day, and the other */ferrets are still touchy about it.

Those poor unborn fork/ferrets, alas. In retrospect it seems an obvious mistake to have ingrafted the forks in utero, but hindsight is always 20/20 if you have rear-mounted outplants.

But the shiriken-enabled */ferrets eventually emerged, so the project was not a total failure.
