    I wish I'd thought of running their XML through the W3C validator, that would've been funny. I adore their standards though and I try to adhere to them whenever mortally possible.

    Also; slopping? *Peer.*

    I agree with your statement wholeheartedly however, it just gives a good base to work from. It's like having a billion research sheets scattered over the floor of someone's home compared to working in a library where all the books, curriculae, thesis and papers are all shelved and correctly ordered in whichever categorization best suits them. I usually end up with the former but whenever I can get the latter, I dive for it. I find the latter much, much easier to work with and it allows the potential of things to be tapped.

    I'm rather happy with the idea of an IRC channel because IRC is koscher. I'm not so interested in Ventrillo because I don't like their licensing and ethos, they're so closed and commercial even though it's freeware. So I'm distinctly "meh" as far as Ventrillo is concerned, there might be another voice system out there that I'd like though. Besides, I swear, my voice is all high-pitched and lilty. You'd all laugh at me.

    There are six people online browsing these forums at the same time. This is really becoming a social venue. We should open a bar and charge for drinks or something. Though knowing myself as I do I'd probably end up just giving them away in the spirit of 'money be nothing' and annoying the proprietor in doing so.

    [Stylpe: In that instance, my 'r' finger was faster than my 'e' finger, this actually happens quite often, my 'e's vary wildly in consistency and if you look around, almost all of my typos are 'e' related.]

    You find a good Blizzard coder, however the problem here is that Blizzard actually gains some credibility. The expectations of the company have risen and the publishers are most displeased. The coder and most of the original staff are fired and almost the entire coding division of Blizzard is replaced with interns to once again lower the value of and expectations placed upon the company. The publishers don't believe in having their development crews doing hard work, after all. They just want people to cough up money like so many slot machines.

    I wish I were a metamorphic [and well sourced] digital entity instead of just a human fleshbag (and as an added challenge, try and do it without using the old clichés or viruses or Chameleonic-loss-of-identity). As life would be far more entertaining then and it would be much easier to mock people if one could take on their forms to do it.

    An interdimensional salesman sloops (it has been divined that whilst spacial travel via space-folding and other methods might cause a 'pop' sound, the friction created by rubbing between realities would actually result in more of a disturbing slurp sound, combined with the high level hum of the everything that exists between realities themselves) into your home and offers you a fine range of PCs at nominal fees, you had to trade your comic book collection in but hey, you now have a hypertech home intelligence and media system! The most powerful machine known to man that could just about emulate anything, furthermore it's capable of virtual environments and other forms of niftyness. Unfortunately, you decide to overclock it and you quickly realize that this might not have been wise. The shere speed of the machine now takes it out of phase with the space-time continuum, evolving into the next evolution of time itself. This is all well and good as a Scientific conundrum and curiousity but you're still left without a good PC.

    The moral of the story is: If you ever get your hands on a PC from the future, don't overclock it!

    Anyway, I wish for ... hm. *Ponder.* Blast, everything I'd want to wish for is too weird or generally unspeakable. I'd wish for an open-minded World where one may speak the weirdness without being carted off to the nearest sanitarium!

    Ow. Ohnoes, my nose!

    You create the best UI AddOn known to man; with the cleanest code, bells, whistles and all manner of whatnotery, the kind of thing that would make a person famous. Unfortunately Blizzard steals your idea and incorporates it into their UI by default, leaving your idea to fall into obscurity.

    I wish for a pet Dalek!

    ... what? They're too much fun.

    Your wish is granted, Rowne does post here; unfortunately he wishes for the untimely demise of slouken, whom is then replaced with an even worse and more conceited coder.

    I shall stop feeding my rage now. *Coughs.*

    I wish for ... oh, I don't know. A stick of celery? I'll get more imaginative as these go on. I just want to test the waters first. *Amused.*

    posted a message on Wardrobe - No SEA/Chronos
    I honestly can't say I'm surprised. I haven't lied about Timex at any point, I spent a lot of time in-game fine-tuning it down to the last detail. What's there is only the most absolute of essentials making for the cleanest timer ever. Chronos is just a joke in comparison. I just hope the word gets out more and that more people find out about it because a lot of their lag is probably down to Chronos and how badly it deals with its handlers.

    Could you please repost this as a request [in this thread]? This forum is for light-hearted jib-jabbery about many things not related to Ace or Ace(D) AddOns at all. For suggestions, bug reports and technical help, you'd need to post in the thread of the AddOn in question.

    Make sure you get the right version.

    There are community versions revised by not-Ska and most of those are 1.7 from what I've seen and I really didn't like 1.7. You should find the official Linoleum and grab 1.6, the official Linoleum post on Curse does have screenshots.

    posted a message on Unit Frames
    When I played, the only thing I could use was Linoleum, nothing else was small enough for me. Nothing else was visually clean enough. I'd have loved CastParty too if it were as clean and easy to read as the UnitFrames in City of Heroes (which it isn't, not by one hell of a long shot).

    Thus, the only thing I could bear as an information management system was an all text system. The bars in Blizzard's game never did anything for me. Further, they never actually ... behaved. It's hard to explain but my mind always judged things differently to the bars, it's like they operate on some funky visual logic that throws me off. Maybe it's the lag Devla spoke of, I know not.

    With the numbers though, everything was always clear and easy to read. I always understood what the game was trying to tell me. What I would have done had I stayed is rewrote version 1.6 (the version I liked best) as an Ace AddOn. I would've got rid of that damned always open onUpdate too, somehow. Ska is an awesome ideas person but his love of onUpdates is scary.

    Oh Gods, poor Albert. Maybe that's how he came up with his equations, hitting the pipe too much.
