    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...

Do you know copy-pasting from Dreamweaver will not save tables unless you copy/paste the HTML code. I hate that.

    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 ...

    Tolerance is giving a second chance. Tolerance is not discriminating against others due to social group, social status, race, age, gender, or intellect. Tolerance is giving an open assessment. Tolerance is not liking everyone you know. Tolerance is giving everyone equal opportunity. Tolerance is not looking down upon others for any reason.

    So, how tolerant are you? People level accusations of intolerance against the religious all the time, but my question...

    Words have a major power. Studies show that a negative spoken word will linger for seventy two hours in a person's mind, and requires ten positive words to repair the damage it caused before that period is out.

    Words have an immense amount of power, and they can be used for hurting or for healing. In the Bible, words are referenced as sparks that can ignite a forest. Just as a word can cause immense damage, words can be used to repair broken lives.

    You can never persecute me, for when I am persecuted, I believe it all as gain, for through me people may see the patience and love of Jesus Christ and through my loss they may be saved. You can not provoke me into retaliation, for I have lost nothing. All I request is that you are decent and do not go beyond the line. There is a clear line between arguing your point and intimidation and name calling. Everything you do to me, physically, will break my bones but not my spirit. ...

    Welcome to my first blog article totally written with only KompoZer. Will you, I write it in KompoZer and put itin from the source in Firefox, since I'm too lazy to configurateeverything.

    The Topic of today will be one of my favorites,the setting for my upcoming mech/sci-fi/magic Tabletop Strategy RolePlaying Game Mechromancy (I am open to name suggestions, it just came to me, the name impliesmechs (Mech) and magic (-mancy). The (-ro) just makes it f...

Now, a lot of people here seem to have no clue at all how to answer a simple question. Yeah, if there's three I'll give you a credit if you can answer them all, but miss one up in context.

Seriously, answer a question directly, read it twice, include the question with your answer, think twice, don't copy, I don't listen to crap, wake up, take a sip of a drink (any type), read a webcomic, read a blog article, and then see if the answer makes sense to the question.

If your answer is crap,...

    I do some messing around with graphical arts. (Included sample below, you can use it if it's true)

    The easiest program to use for vector graphics is Inkscape. It's simple, easy, and has more novice-user available options than Illustrator does. Plus it's much more complex in what you can do, but easier to do what you want without any hassle. It even supports layers (using XML).

    I recommend Inkscape to: Private Artists, Educational Org...

    JoeUser and Firefox seem to be having falling outs with each-other when it comes to writing articles. Is it my plugin blend, or is there actually something causing the problem with base Firefox?
April 23, 2009 by erathoniel
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...

   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...

    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...
