So I'm back on JoeUser. I've kicked my porn addiction (Four years later, no longer using a filter, no longer needing to watch), stopped playing so many video games (not quite so happily, but necessary), and run a daily webcomic (for a couple months, then I lost inspiration/ideas and my comp. died), and started a new weekly one.


I'd also like to apologize. I've been snarky and rude, and all the things I never wanted to be in the past, not because I truly wanted you to hurt, but becau...

Introducing the CountryBoat     Imagine a huge ship, powered by solar energy, with greenhouses and fishing. Together, we can flee the nation before the nukes hit. One contribution of $100,000 can secure you eight slots on this ship. Sure, we may not have an experienced leader, but neither does America. This modern day Noah's Ark (without animals, save pets [please spay/neuter animals])will be launched when the first signs of crapper-jumping are here, and should carry enough e...

    What is the difference between passing judgement or warning someone? For instance, let me present the black and white examples:

    Judgement: Because you took a wrong turn, you fell off a cliff.
    Warning: If you take the wrong turn, you will fall off a cliff.

    In my opinion, judgement should never be necessary, instead a warning will suffice.

    In ethical terms, this means that you should warn peopl...

   Welcome to my guide on making a good pseudonym. I will list things to do/not do

Numbers are BAD! BAD! BAD! Numbers will turn away the more serious people at a fair rate (admit it, who would befriend, much less pay attention to, John1825712085?)Using a product in your name is also bad. Do not name youself "WoWGoldVendor". This is more of a username than a pseudonym thing, I guess, but it's bad.Use a random name generator. This is good. It gives ideas. I use two pseudonyms, Erathon...

Ok, attention spammers, poetic spam is still spam. If you put WoWGold in every other sentence, it is even more spam. People will not buy MMORPG crap if they're smart, and if they're not, they don't use our wiki, and we don't give about your poetry.

  On the GHWiki, we've been getting a lot of spam recently. So, here's a little note to spammers: We don't care about Guild War Gold's meaningful nature. Quite frankly, a wiki is not a blogging site. If you wanna talk about the Olympiad Panda Bears, do it on a blog site, not on a sci-fi wiki. While the articles you write may not be too terrible, and may be worthy of being published in some very extreme cases, it's a site with a goal of detailing a video game, not your personal poetry or wri...

 What phobias do you have? I fall victim to a blend of phobias, none of which are terribly pleasant (fortunately, nor fairly common, save nyctophobia). Tell me if I'm misclassifing any of these. Also, none of them affect me in a virtual environment.

Acrophobia- Fear of heights. 12 feet is about how much it takes to trigger it. I will stay far away from any edges that could cause falling (even railing that doesn't go up to my chest).

Aviophobia- Fear of flying. Not too bad, but I avoid...

I'm opening up the Video Game Classification Wiki to the public (which means no account needed). What you can do is make an account and a page with your name (real or fake), then put little sections to duel. If it gets off well enough, I may make a public wiki simply for the purpose of fighting with words. Basically it's a way to relieve stress and keep comments from piling up too quickly on poor people's articles (sorry, KFC). Any comments or ideas are appreciated. I'll see you there (you guys ...

    Today I will be looking at why media franchises fail.

    I will give an example of a good franchise with a bad game that failed, and a good franchise with a good game that failed nonetheless, and how they could have been saved.

    Franchise 1: Galidor

    Galidor has a pretty neat concept. Change forms from one to another and become a wonderful fighter. It was sponsored by Lego, but it had a fairly decent concept. It had ...

    GearHead 2 .502 Released    GearHead 2 has a new version released on its Sourceforge page. Go try it. It's a blast. It adds depth to the gameplay, both ASCII and SDL.

    Nevermind that I'm an admin on the wiki, it's a good game, simple to learn, hard to master. Try GH1 first, though, unless you want pure random, because GH2 isn't done yet! Site Review   Hulu is a wonderful video service that allo...

    Just How Bad Is Cheating In Video Games?   Now, I'm a "pro" gamer. In so much as I'm probably in the better 25%. Ispend too much time at it, sure, but I am fairly decent. Sure I'm justbelow the Great Wall of Ownage, meaning that there are players who willdestroy me repeatedly (most Tribes players and some Tremulous playersfall into the upper category). However, I do pretty well, especially inMMO's. However, occasionally one will find the Dretch who lags so badly...

    Here's wishing a happy Mother's Day to everyone here. No Daily Feature today, I'm too busy between church and Morrowind. Funny, huh?

    Anyways, happy Mother's Day! Don't eat too much like I just did!


    Darn relatives always trying to kill me by feeding me.

    On Raytracing       Raytracing refers to the process of using a computerto render an image, sometimes photorealistic, from an array of things.Raytracing is a very simple task, but eats up a fair deal of computerpower. It doesn't requre a terribly great computer, though, since itmerely runs lots of commands. This allows a raytracing engine to renderawesome sights on pretty much any computer. I'd recommend it for allpeople who need an image.

    Why is being a gamer bad?                      It makes me sad when there isdiscrimination against the innocent.   Now, I may be quoting out of context here, but I have been told that asa gamer I have no place on JU, and I should crawl back into the sameold gaming sites I frequent. I believe that there is nothing wrong withbeing a gamer, it is simply a part of my identity. ...
