Thanx, Mr. Can.
I'm 63 and grew up with those signs all over the roads in the heartland.
I've never seen this site and am now glad I have.
Again, thanx,
me

Are you referring to that message you get by pressing Shift+7,8,9,0, or am I too much of an Exile n00b?

There's that, but there are also four signs in a row in E3 somewhere in the north (near Moon, perhaps) that read:

"Before they send us..."

"To the grave..."

"The Alien Beasts use..."

"Burma Shave."

What version of Exile are you referring to, Burgler Ben?

E3.

Also, most people just call me ben. My moniker changes every 150 posts, so in two more posts it will change again.

I never really got that message. What the crap does it mean by backing up my save files before using Burma Shave?

No, it's:

"If Valorim..."

"You want to save..."

"Back up your save file...

"Burma Shave."

—Alorael, who would chalk it up to good advice in an easter egg combined with Jeff's love of Burma Shave. Go figure.

Yay. Good for you. So have I. I'm very proud of you now. Be sure and keep posting.

Heh, another buddy, who, along with me, loves announcing post milestones. Congrats.

640! Yes!

Why is this topic still open?

And what kind of milestone is 640 or even 150?
Oh yes this is post# whatever my post # is.
Aren't I so super special!
Perhaps this is the last of the dead topic revivals from Solberg?

I must say one thing before this topic that died days ago can go back to it's resting place. I don't think I have ever seen a more creative way of telling someone to shutup then Slith...

Were you directing "STFU" towards me? I am sorry if you have nothing better to do then become angry at posts. That is not my problem. Don't read my posts if you want me to "STFU". Now, if you had asked me politely, then I might actually have had no need to respond. On the other hand, you didn't. So, please STFU. Have a nice day. :)

I believe he took your post as an invitation to find creative ways of telling people to shut up.

I left this open thinking that people would have the good sense not to continue posting in it. So much for that.
