    Whats The First Game you Ever Played?

    The first game I can remember playing would be Asteroids on the old Atari 2600... classic! But there was also this one war game with tanks that I got attached to... ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://www.the-journeyman.com "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    Hmm...

    I haven't done anything as of yet... although I could conceivably set up a site section. If anyone cares to give me the appropriate info, I could get started on that. I have a small idea for a section, hopefully original enough that no one else has done it. Tac, "perl" is one of the most popular scripting languages around. I write programs in it all the time... although it seems to be on its way out, what with things like ASP and PHP being around. Ah well... I really ought to post more, it just seems I hardly ever have something to say. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://www.the-journeyman.com "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    Hmm...

    I actually have the entire GBS manual printed out around here somewhere... Never took the time to learn it, I suppose I'm saving it for a rainy day. The main reason I haven't started any RP threads is because I'm concerned about affecting things already written. It wouldn't do to write something that conflicts with established history, after all... I imagine I could just write something about my own ship and leave everyone else out of it, but that's hardly the spirit of RP. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://www.the-journeyman.com "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    Hmm...

    You know, I joined this fleet a while back and the only member I think I've spoken to is Dreada (if he's still a member, that is). I thought I might be helpful by offering my uh... "abilities." I can do the following: Host a site (no, really!) Write Perl scripts Write stories (but plenty of you do that already) Make websites in general... I don't know what you people need at the moment, but I'm willing to lend a hand. My specs won't run BCM so I might as well do SOMETHING. Anyhow, I'm bored a lot and if someone gave me something interesting to do... everyone might benefit. Heh. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."

    Can you belive this...

    I used several free ISP's... AltaVista, Lycos, then Address.com. It turned out AV and Lycos were both on 1stUp.com's service (which is now defunct). Oh, and my $10/mo. ISP went out of business without informing me. Talk about customer service. You know what else stinks about NS 6? JavaScripts that worked in previous versions will no longer work in version 6. Talk about backwards combatibility. :-o I have no idea why I'm posting, look at the number of posts I've made... heh. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    memory managers

    I'm assuming cacheman uses your hard drive as swap space, in which case it would dramatically slow down your system. BC3K is a processor hog, and I'm guessing it's a RAM eater as well. So yes, memory management programs will probably play hell with it! Although I'm not sure if I'm being any help here... ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."

    Oldest Running PC

    We still have this one computer that plugs into a TV, has a bubble-key keyboard, and a slot to hold up to 64KB of RAM. I'm not even sure what it is. It's just... ancient. Oh, we also have a TRS-80, Apple IIe, 386, 486, 486 laptop, P133, P166, and a PIII 733. Heh. It's like a museum of PC's... ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."

    Perl programmers?

    For anyone who doesn't know (I assume that's all of you except Parias) I write Perl programs. The thing is, I am undertaking the biggest project I've ever attempted and I was wondering if anyone could be available to render some assistance if I need any. I suppose I should run down what the program does, too. A person starts from a login page. Their username and password are verified and stored in a temporary file (so the program knows they are logged in). From that screen, there are several options. 1) Create a file, 2) Edit a file, 3) Delete a file. Pretty basic, eh? Inside the user's account file, though, is a list of directories they are permitted to alter. So, there are several basic programs: Login, Menu, Edit, Create, and Delete. I've already encountered one potential problem, actually. The problem is that a person could easily bypass the directory structure by entering a filename such as ../filename.txt or /main/filename.txt or anything of that sort. I assume a split command would be able to take out anything like that. But I'm not sure! I suppose I should test it... Anyhow, I've probably not made much sense here. If anyone knows anything about Perl programming and wants to lend some assistance, please ICQ me at 2685176. I intend to make this program quite large eventually (it's already grown from a simple message posting system into this). Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and don't any of you tell me to write it for ASP instead. I'll get upset. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    Internet Connect Speeds

    I live in happy Indiana as well. I'm also out in the country where the best we can hope for is a 33.6 connection. I hate it. I really hope that DSL deal comes through. But it'll be a wait. We were considering getting a satellite ISP. That might work. Fast download, phone-speed upload. I hope we have it available here. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."

    Is there a patch for autosave?

    I feel your pain. I suffered with a Cyrix 6x86 for 3 years. It crashed all the time. However, the above posters are right. Version 2.09 is MUCH more stable than just 2.00. Get patches ASAP! You might have to tweak your computer some to make it all work well (check the FAQ), but it's well worth it in the end. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    Spiking the charts..

    I should have mentioned it in the review, but the reason I gave gameplay a 3 was because of the difficulty of the interface. Oops. Now if I were just allowed to edit the stupid thing... Oh well, they're just numbers. The review(s) speak for themselves. And I feel like such an idiot for hitting "Reply w/ Quote" on here (explaining this second message) rather than "edit post." Hehe.

    Spiking the charts..

    Since I wasn't doing anything else, I wrote up a review as well. I tried to be as honest as possible and look at it from the perspective of someone who wasn't sure about buying the game, and what kind of people I think would enjoy it. Oh, I should post more... ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."

    SC's appearance on Jeff K.'s FPS Survivor

    For anyone who didn't know, Jeff K. is actually Lowtax. And Lowtax... well... I hope you know who he is. Hah. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."

    SC's appearance on Jeff K.'s FPS Survivor

    Well, I've always found Jeff K. to be insightful and witty. Of course, you would only seem the character of Jeff K. in such a light if you were aware that he is a complete fabrication. I think it's funny. I think Parias found it funny (but I can't speak for him, of course). But is it ironic that the SC was shown as a Vulcan? Hehe. Oh, I know I never post around here. *waves at everyone* Remember me? Long live Jeff K. And on a final note: I do think the scene with the Coke machine was hitting below the belt. Bad Lowtax! Other than that, though... I should stop rambling. Next! ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs.

    Very Angry Indeed...

    I know I hardly ever post, but Parias directed me here... I know there's nothing I or anyone else can say that will probably be of much help, but I know we're all here to listen and talk. I don't know what else I can say except that I'm here. ------------------ Robert Thomas Maxwell GCV Desideratus http://powerpub.net "Leave the repairs to the techs. Leave the mass destruction to ME."
