I've changed my mind about kittens (and cats in general). They're not all cute, furry animals. Some are viscous creatures that will eat your food, then scratch and bite your hands.

Actually, they're ALL vicious creatures that will eat your food and then scratch and bite your hands and other body parts. The good thing is that most kittens eventually grow (mostly) out of the scratching and biting. But they never stop eating your food.

My mother got a kitten a few weeks ago from the pet store and it gave her ringworm. The doctor misdiagnosed it as something that wasn't contagious and so when the whole family was together for Christmas she spread it like the plague! Actually only 4 other people got it that I'm aware of, and her dog.

Interesting fact: Monistat 7 (vaginal cream) is an effective treatment for ringworm.

I'm actually really fond of these two (related) ideas:

1. Tiny Crawl World


2. Tiny World:
Part 1: Tiny World Cities
Part 2: Tiny World Commander
Part 3: Tiny World Encounters

Lots of other great ideas on that site: Three Hundred

Thanks to Tinjaw for mentioning the site in another thread.

Actually the "Porn drives technology online" argument doesn't hold water for me

You obviously are in the minority.

No I think she's right. Internet technology isn't driven by porn. It's driven by the pursuit of money; the majority of which is perhaps gained from pornography.

We can now increase industry and transportation instead of just increasing population. But you can only do one per day so choose wisely.

Increase Population

Improve Industry

Improve Transportation

This one is pretty good, from the last couple paragraphs of David Brin's entry.

Quote
I certainly expected that, by now, online tools for conversation, work, collaboration and discourse would have become far more useful, sophisticated and effective than they currently are. I know I'm pretty well alone here, but all the glossy avatars and video and social network sites conceal a trivialization of interaction, dragging it down to the level of single-sentence grunts, flirtation and ROTFL [rolling on the floor laughing], at a time when we need discussion and argument to be more effective than ever.

Indeed, most adults won't have anything to do with all the wondrous gloss that fills the synchronous online world, preferring by far the older, asynchronous modes, like web sites, email, downloads etc.

This isn't grouchy old-fart testiness toward the new. In fact, there are dozens of discourse-elevating tools just waiting out there to be born. Everybody is still banging rocks together, while bragging about the colors. Meanwhile, half of the tricks that human beings normally use, in real world conversation, have never even been tried online.

Darwin, you can also download these resources provided by the LDS church for handheld devices. And I just found out they even provide downloadable MP3s of the scriptures as well as other LDS publications. Some in other languages too. All for free.

Here's an online version of the Bible (KJV) with lots of cross references to other verses, footnotes, Bible Dictionary, Topical Guide, Maps, etc. all linked for easy access/reference.

http://scriptures.lds.org/

Since the website is provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (aka LDS/Mormons), it also includes LDS scriptures such as the Book of Mormon.

I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but occasionally a large file will be downloading and it will only get a few MB into it and it will stop, saying it was successful. This has happened to me in Firefox too.

It tends to do it to me when I'm downloading many files at once and/or my connection is going really slow.

CodeTRUCKER, I share similar ideals as you. I've never said a "swear word" on purpose, don't smoke, don't drink, don't a lot of things many people find perfectly ordinary and commonplace today.

When someone posts a topic here that is borderline or clearly inappropriate to my personal standards, it makes me uncomfortable, sure. I'm not personally offended though. That is, while it may offend my tastes, I'm not angry or upset or harmed by the person who meant no harm.

There is nothing wrong with just doing what's right. The problem, though, is that not everyone agrees to the same definition of what's right and what's not. The best you can do is decide for yourself. And yes, in my opinion it is common courtesy to censor one's self for the sake of others. But in social places where many discussions on many topics are taking place, everyone is bound to come across something that isn't to their liking some time. I think the best course of action at that point is to judge the intent.

The key to most things in the world is to teach people correct principles and have them govern themselves. Having an organized body or group that does these things for you takes away personal responsibility and leads to bigger problems.

The fact of life is that people will talk about or do things you don't like. That doesn't make them bad people. It just makes them different than you. Like I said, I'm quite a misfit myself because of my personal standards--which are often thought of as strange or unnecessary. But it's my choice to make my standards, it's their choice to make theirs. No one is better or worse for it.

I'm still typing because I feel like I should wrap this up in a nice coherent, clean sentence or two, but I can't really think of how to do that. So I'll just stop now.

Tunnels of Doom on the TI-99/4A.

That's the one I was thinking of in one of my first posts, but I called it Dungeons of Doom. My brothers and I would play that one so much!

We played Parsec too, but we had the cartridge expansion so we could just plug in games and play.

Hmm, if it also had an "adventure" part, you're probably thinking of Full Throttle. I played the demo, which rocked, but never got around to purchasing the full game Sad

My brother and I finally purchased the full version of Full Throttle in the late 90's, installed it, then took it back because we thought it was just the demo because it was less than 1MB completely installed! ohmy

5225  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Best Games You've Never Played on: January 03, 2008, 01:53:26 AM
Of the original list, I played or saw The Neverhood. Can't remember which. It was at someone else's computer but it looked like a bunch of fun. Never got to see more than perhaps 30 minutes of it.  Angry

I got Beyond Good and Evil for PS2 because I could never find it for GameCube when I was interested in it. But when I went into the volcano the guy in armor kept falling into the depths. He wouldn't die, but he couldn't get back on the path. The glitch kept me from getting any farther than that. I finally found it for GameCube on eBay a few months ago and bought it, but haven't gotten around to playing it. Meanwhile I gave the PS2 version to my brother.

Metroid was an amazing game back in the day, but it was too difficult for me. Heck, it's still too difficult for me! But I've played and beat every other (proper) Metroid game out there.

Scorched Earth was very fun too. But that was during elementary and middle school years. My brother made a similar game called Nuke 'Em. Then when Duke Nuke 'Em came out, I thought it was a similar game until I played it.

There was also a game called Moraff's World, an RPG. I wanted to buy it but couldn't find it, so my brother talked me into buying Moraff's Blast (Arkanoid Clone). We didn't know what it was at the time because it was just on a floppy disk with no game description. We figured it would be similar because they were both Moraff's. Big mistake! Strangely, looking at the Wikipedia entry on Moraff's World, I don't recognize anything from those screenshots.

Similarly, I loved an RPG game called Castle of the Winds that I got off a shareware CD. The full game has been released to the public.
