That would have been a significant improvement. I remember without that, it went something like:

5 Open menu
10 Equip Iron Boots
15 Close menu
20 Fall past where you're supposed to go
25 Open menu
30 Remove Iron Boots
35 Close menu
40 Rise above where you're supposed to go
45 GOTO 5

for two or three loops.

PNQ: Am I the only person not versed in EVERY archaic computer language? I learned the rudiments in college, before which I knew squat. Absolute squat.

I only know SQUIDTRAN myself, and that's purely by dint of having made it up this instant.

Nate the Great 12-17-2007 07:16 PM

Does anyone here know why the new season has to grind to a halt because of a Writer's Guild strike? Couldn't everyone just keep working and get their new benefits recursively? I'm just asking because the final season of Scrubs deserves better than the treatment they're getting.

The only scripting I understand is basic HTML, some VERY rudimentary BASIC, and a fair knowledge of NWScript, myself...so no, you aren't the only one. :)

PointyHairedJedi 12-18-2007 09:24 PM

I should send them them my not-quite-BAW, just to show I could write all those season finales no problem, if they wanted me. And let's face it, who wouldn't?

Are there actually any public groups in the forum? Go to a member profile page, and there it is, "Group Memberships: X is not a member of any public groups." I've yet to find a profile that actually lists any.

Okay, here's one: what's your favorite nextgen TV technology: plasma or LCD? What I read about the issue frankly worries me, what with all the issues about burned pixels and blacks-that-aren't-really-black and so on and so forth.

Um... what is a strike if you're not on strike? It sure as hell isn't a strike, that's for sure.

My question is WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH TETRIS? Why do people BUY that game? ON IT'S OWN!

Get any good '10,998,765,421 games in one' game and it's on there in twenty two variations!

And why do people like it anyway? BOR-ING

Oooooooooo.....

I bought Tetris on it's own. Original B&W Gameboy Tetris, too! It continues to be a classic of the gaming world. Watch where you stick those pointy sticks.

Would the following make a good blurb for the front page to replace the fjord thing?

Douglas Adams: I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they go by.

mudshark 12-25-2007 02:21 AM

No.

Nate the Great 12-25-2007 02:21 PM

Aw. Really? I guess you have to appreciate the humor on it's own level...

Okay, I've known about this one for awhile, but I'm asking now. So in creating the Babylon 5 DVD sets, they lost the original CG models, so they're stuck using the recordings of the models. Why is this? I'd imagine that over five years we'd have seen all angles of these things, so why not recreate the CG models? Even if the ships turned out slightly different than originally intended, who's to know? The shots will still be consistent, right?

Chancellor Valium 12-29-2007 03:14 PM

I realise I'm going out on a limb with a wacky theory here, but I'd guess for reasons of cost and time. ;)

The rabid sci-fi fanboy community, notice infinitesimal changes in detail?

*snort*

Naah. Never happen.

Nate the Great 12-29-2007 06:37 PM

Before I go off on one of my rants, I'd like you to clarify your opinion.

Why would Wowbagger, upon becoming immortal, go on a quest to insult everyone in the universe in alphabetical order?

Chancellor Valium 12-29-2007 09:31 PM

Have you not read the book?
