I like sour cream, but I don't order it at chipotle because it's usually very cold to the point of making the rest of the burrito cold.

I thought so: clueless.

If you have nothing to say then don't bother quoting, a simple system, works well for most.

I've always loved you, Trap.

That manly, deep voice of yours, that well toned physique of yours. A testosterone volcano such as yourself - who could ever turn you down?
And those one-liners, that depth of wit and awareness, who could resist?

Lots of love, Minty XXX.

Wow, some times it's clear as day why this forum has such a bad rep.
It's really too bad, because I love it here.

itch.io is doing a huge charity bundle right now. They auto-filled $10 into the amount and I attempted to change it to $5. Then I get the receipt and it said I paid $100.05.

GODDAMNIT!!!

(Waiting on itch.io support for a refund, fingers-crossed)

multi-column format in PDF files
I can't stand it. It's absolutely fucking terrible. I'm reading this on a god damn screen. A wide screen.
Don't make me scroll up and down and up and down.

I'm incredibly curious as to how many people read papers on literal paper these days, anyway.

Multi-column papers are still a standard in certain research fields, for instance: computer science esp. conference proceedings, experimental psychology, computational linguistics esp. proceedings.

They are a standard mostly because many moons ago they allowed publishers to save space and paper (a short 2-page, double/multi-column paper can present a nice, neat and simple experiment+references). They are somehow readable on IPads, and a nightmare to trawl through on any other device.

Why people still use the format? "Tradition, maybe even just nostalgia", I was told once (or: publishers cannot be bothered to adapt to other formats). I had my most Picard-esque facepalm moment ever, there and then.

Let me not even start on double space and flushed left formatting, a left-over of the typewriter era...

I think you've got to you've just lost $100. I don't even think Larry David would stoop to fishing money out a collection jar. At least it's for a for a good cause!

I really hate when double record sets do side A&D on one record and B&C on the other record. It's not common anymore, but I think every single Reprise Records release does this, and some others like columbia. Why the hell do they make you go put away the first record and then drag out the second one and then go back and put the first one on again!

i think most old record changers couldnt flip records, they could just play one side and then change to another disc so maybe it was to accomodate that

This game show that thinks "Time Crisis" is a first person shooter akin to Doom, Quake, or Deus Ex.

Blimey, Vicky's already considerable tits got fookin massive while she was knocked up :o Image Oh, ahem. Yes, the erasure of gallery shooting is shameful! If I were in charge, the choices would've been Ultima Underworld, Spear of Destiny, Nitemare 3D and Blake Stone. :cool:

Nitemare 3D has 3D in the name, too much of a hint. Swap it out for Ken's Labyrinth! :lol:

Blake Stone was up there with Wrath of Earth in that it was one of the games that really pushed the no vertical movement, Wolfenstein 3D style FPS to its limit as far as creativity goes. Neat stuff.

I had Blake Stone, Doom, Nitemare 3D, and a bunch of other FPSes on a shareware CD back in the day, and as a kid Nitemare 3D for some reason terrified me the most. The scream whenever you aggro mummies or Frankenstein's monsters for some reason was way worse than the stuff in Doom, probably because everything felt cramped as all hell in Nitemare 3D. Still the scariest game to me because of how nasty all the hitscan projectile enemies are later on, haha.

Also, Hugo's face in the oldest versions apparently was updated in a later version to look like someone flattened his head with a sledgehammer. True horror.

Always found it kinda endearing, Hugo getting a fourth game (and a radical genre-shift, at that). Played all three of the adventure titles via shareware floppy back in the day, but I guess Nitemare 3D was distributed differently... I don't think it ever turned up at any of my local PC places. Didn't get to play it until '98, well after Quake. Even in 1994 it'd have been outmoded by Doom II et al, but I still liked that distinctly garish David P. Gray aesthetic.

I vaguely recall some unnerving, sporadic chase sequences in the Hugo adventures, come to think of it. Maybe I'm mixing it up with Maniac Mansion. I definitely recall trying out various sweary barbs in the text box and enjoying the games' comebacks. :mrgreen:

Garish and charming. A lot like Catacomb Abyss's graphics in a way, except with a much less limited colour palette. A lot of detail went into the actual house details too, but exactly how many secret passage bookcases, and how many fireplaces does a house need? Can a man not have at least one perfectly normal bookcase for storing books?!

Haha, aww, he's still around! I might give the first Hugo a revisit sometime. I remember the third game being kinda short and anti-climactic, though the jungle setting was novel. Can barely recall the second, think it had a Shining-esque hedge maze?

Forgotten most of the first's puzzle solutions, other than one kinda bullshit bit where the game actually gave me the solution (first time the "want a hint?" prompt popped up I accidentally dismissed it and said FUCK). Involved the background scenery, brr, never forgetting that.

Downloading a game update that says it's for "minor text fixes"...and weighs in at almost a gig in size.

Sometimes that just means they added support for a new language. Maybe. lol

So I just got SMR'ed. Bought a new HDD, ran CrystalDiskInfo, noticed it has TRIM support, did some Googling, yep it's a SMR drive with crappy write performance in certain situations. Arrrrrrgh. Thankfully Amazon was willing to give me a 20% partial refund. Still considering returning it outright. lol

French 2020 mainstream music
Black guy, vocoder, lady, vocoder, no music, vocoder, love lyrics "I love you I love you I like to f*ck you" vocoder.

You also have French 2020 mainstream music
White guy, void african rhythm poum - ta poum - ta, no music, cannot sing, party lyrics "lets go party, lets go party, lets go party".

Oh, and also French 2020 mainstream music
Bearded guys try to sound serious, still no music, try to write intelligent lyrics but do not have 1/50th of the talent of real songwriter like Goldman or Brel .

Pfffffffff, and all teens now listen and dance to this shit all day. Am I getting old going to my 40th ? Was the music we used to listen in our teen that bad ? Is the situation the same in all countries or is it just France ?


EDIT : well maybe I was kind of being nervous. I guess there are some good shit produced here too :

Joy music : Jain : joy, joy, joy, dance, dance, dance, LSD movie

Sex music : Therapy Taxi : dirty movie, dirty song, nice band image look at those mustaches and really off clothes !

Live music : Gojira : Mario Duplantier machine-gun drumming, incredible stage energy and presence.

Not since Magma I guess. But this Pol’and Rock concert is a must watch for any fan. Live DVD quality material.
I guess/fear some effects are used on Joe’s voice though, never heard him sing that right in all range used.
