ben, think about what you're saying. 256 possible values for each of R, G and B adds up to 256*256*256 = 16,777,216 colours. That's millions of colours, or 24-bit. Having 65536 different values for each colour would require a considerably greater bit depth. :P

(EDIT: 48 bits, to be precise.)

Apparently, the best we can have is 32-bit colour because we can't tell the difference for anything above that. At least, that's what I've heard.

Well, sure, 32-bit is fine if you only want to make a monitor that's useful for modern humans. :P

(Incidentally, bit depth isn't everything. Even the best monitors can't produce every colour that can be seen by the human eye, because the range of colours monitors can produce doesn't completely contain the range of colours humans can perceive. Adding finer distinction of shades of colour within that range doesn't really fix that.)

I have to say that we should definetely adopt a R256 W256 G256 colour scheme. Also portrayable as #rwrwrw.

Also, brilliant if somewhat evil call.

It's working normally for me, and from what I can see for others too. But if it happens often, maybe you reinstall your browser and try again?

I might have to. It might not work for a couple of hours, then work for a couple of weeks. *sigh*

I've been having intermittent problems with Polaris too, and I'm on the same ISP as Spring. It's likely a DNS issue.

That's one of the downsides of a cult. The bar has to be very low to let in the mindless-type people who are the body of the White Shock Troops. Canon fodder that has to be tolerated until can be properly be disposed of in the name of advancing the cult.

Unpleasant but necessary. Just grit your teeth.

*Grits teeth*

White shock troops? Sounds oddly similar to some other sci-fi I can think of.

Yes, very true. But they're limp-wristed sissies compared to our guys.

Blasters, schmasters! We're into high-focused personally-delivered multimegaton thermonuclear devices.

Yea, but we can strap them to a nuke and shoot them out of cannons. They're there to make sure the nuke doesn't prematurely explode/get intercepted.

And they wear Rocketeer-like suits that make them beautifully aerodynamic.

Assuming you're talking about me (which I probably misunderstood, again), I can't help it I'm not a native speaker. I don't know every word by heart (Although salvage really has a VERY nice meaning).

No hard feelings

I'm not getting what the problem is. What did i say or do that I have to choose all of a sudden?

EDIT: So all of a sudden I don't have to choose anymore? Okay. i admit it. this RWG forum really doesn't make any sense to me (Please! keep it that way!)
