    Well, ive seen my fair share of chainmail, but not as far as to say ive seen a chainmail with a ´jello house in 20 seconds´ remark. Well, as for gmail, ive only got, about... *checks* 100 invites...

    Well, he hass openend up a few doors for me o insult some incredibly stupid (adult, teachers, would you believe it) people at my school without them knowing what the hell i am talking about (calling them stupider than Jack thompson doesnt mean anything if they dont know who he is, as esq said). Honsetly my opinion of this fruitcake is that he is not human, he is not even subhuman. And i quote from the Aranic book of pest removal: <font size=1 face="trebuchet ms"><BLOCKQUOTE><hr size=1 noshade> Species: Idiot Core Genus: Various Identifying characteristics: Low I.Q., stupidiy, low common sense Threat level: Minimal Eradication Instructions: Idiots are one of the lowest forms of life, sharing similar characteristics to script kiddies and ´wannabe´ hackers, but having a significantly lower base threat level. They are resistant to insults, verbal abuse, and even a degree of physical abuse, and have amazing counter-attack strategies that can become dangerous in the slightly more financially endowned. Nonlethal eradication is difficult, as it is near-impossible to ´persuade´ the species to leave, and one must rely upon more, artistic, methods of removal in minor cases. In major cases, it is reccomended that professional idiotremovers be contacted, as a group of numberous idiots, or a single powerful idiot can pose a significant personal threat. It is reccomended that you attempt to paralyze them by inducing a ´dummy-mode´ (see: Dummy mode, Attr: BOfH) mental buffer overload by bombarding them with technobabble, and sneaking away while they are sifting through (larger idiots are somewhat resilient to these attacks, and some have been oberved to be immune. in these situations, more drastic methods must be employed) If nonlethal eradication is unnecessary, idiots are especially vulnerable to firearms of almost all types, and the slightly more intelligent can make good moving targets, but otherwise remain stationary while being fired at. <hr size=1 noshade></BLOCKQUOTE></font><font face=´trebuchet ms, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica´ size=2> If we want rid of him, we can just hope that he has a heart attack, runs out of money, or gives up. either those of the population will just start to ignore him, which i think will most likely happen.

Flying bunker?. oh well Nicely done there, keep up the impressive comedic work

    The funniest virus i have ever experienced, wasnt actually on MY computer (thankfully) it was on someone else´s. It was the virus that caused the icons to move out of the way whenever you put the cursor over them (pretty damn funny at the time, i didnt know it was a virus until relatively recently). i kept having to select the icons using the keyboard arrow keys.

    Personally, i like SL (If for nothing other than my Refitted Phoenix+Cloaking Device). I agree moose is a bit of a pain (´All the way man, all the way´ anyone think this guy has sexuality issues?), but shooting down torps isnt that bad, provided you have rapidcycle on the targets (That, is the only reason i have missiles, dual hawks and dual raptors. 8 long-range missiles, plus six rapid-homers for those annoying fighters that dont shut up. total of 14 torpedos killed without even a shot being fired from the main guns) Apart from that, ill agree, the storyline is a bit monotonus, and moose is a pain in the rear... but its a damn good classic.

    @esq: Theoretically? <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> ok... *looks through the cargo crates* Some ginger beer for the esq, snap-cooking fingerfoods, minipies, cocktail weenies, cheese, cheese, more cheese

    Amazing how something so inadvertent culd cause the death of so many innocents... <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I wonder if blizzard is going to get rid of it, or put an ´immunity´ in so that you eventually can fight the infection off... Bout sounds pretty cool, i betcha someone or something is gonna make more of these...

    yep, checked on a routine basis, and i tried this on both my desktop computer and my notebook with the same results (XP home and Pro respectivley, both kept up-to-date), ive tried rebooting them, ive tried rebooting the router to refresh dynamic IP, the only thing i havent tried is installing another browser, which is pointless, because its two different computers anyway.

I must get a time machine, and go back and say that archie and Taw that they become staff. id be but in an asylum!

    @esq: ill take that offer, esq! (email in the profile, just drom the ´SPAMMERSDIE´ bit) Yes, i do miss the good old sir spectre, i wonder where the good old playwright has gotton himself off to...

    Eep is right. Arcon, havent seen you in ages, falling upwards? <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> J/k Well dont one your recent promotion *discretley gets Lightstaff* Uh... yea... *leans on the wall*

    Rule#4: do NOT fire a High-yield torpedo at point blank range. Personally, i have dual firestalkers when im flying an eagle. true, i usually only fly the eagle when i can somehow get the C10 Grav shield, but i still like the missile.

    Contermeasures ALSO have a field radies that they disrupt from. so if the missile is fired from further away then the blocking radius of the CM, it wont work. one thing i never tried, however, is whether or not a single CM will disrupt mutiple incoming missiles. like you deploy 2 CMS to disable about 8 incoming missiles. do the CMs work in a 1:1 ratio or can a CM attract more than one missile?

    The reason people dont GET freighters is they dont get the weapons configurations. two words: BROADSIDE...FIREPOWER Usually only applicable in cruiser and battleship combat, FL freighters have shown their vality on this practice. You may notice the Freighters have a LARGE number of turrets all over the ship. especially point at such extreme angles that they CANNOT be brought to bear against targets in front of you. Solution: swing around your your side or top-on to the enemy ships (While in engine kill), turret around, and let loose. true, you will loose the front guns (Unless youve got some weird glitch where one can fire at some mind-bogglingly extreme angle), but you will make up for it with the 4-7 turrets that can be broght to bear against the enemy. Tachyon cannons are surprisingly good here, because you can keep them under fire after thier guns are out of range. laser guns are also good, because of thier low energy usage, so you can fire for longer. As for the best freighter. in bog-standard, i would say the Drom. HUGE cargo pod, and decent hardpoints, conbine that with fairly equal turretbear firepower all over the ship, and its a VERY good choice (Except in the borderworlds, but then your screwed in a freighter ANYWAY). good acceleration, great turning, and id say its the best. The Hump is good, however, because of its higher armour, harpoint rating, and the ability to fire about 2-3 turrets MORE backwards. Its INCREDIBLE downside is its HUGE turning arc. when i flew this thing, i was INTIMATLEY reminded of flying a gunship, or even a liberty cruiser. I never did find Rheinland engineering that attractive, either... As for custom ships... how long is the piece of string?
