    What Exile/Avernum you begin with ?

    I'm pretty sure it was E1, then not long later found E2, both on MacFormats back in the day.

    Favorite abandonware games?

    Imperialism was a decent one, although recent attempts at playing it were a tad difficult as the versions of it I found were rather Buggy. Deadlock was another good one. There's probably heaps of others, I could flip through a couple abandonware places for quite a while.

    Not Experienced But Eager To Learn(Exile Series)

    If I remember right, the Exile games should work perfectly fine while using SheepShaver

    Testing a Discord server for SW peeps

    This would be...interesting to see if anything actually comes of it.

    Grand Poll 2017: Results Part 1

    That's rather interesting. I'd probably be one of very few (if not only or extremly very few who answered) asexual, but answered no none the less to identifying with the LGBT community. (There's a bit of a split there with some people)

    I just realized I passed my 10 year mark here

    Congrats. Speaking of which, I just marked my third anniversary on another forum (thanks to here actually.) Much cake, rum and celebrations!

    Hello Everybody.

    We had both our own bedroom plus that other room we got some gear from near the barracks, which was pretty nice actually. I thought so, anyway.

    2015 Movies

    There's only two movies that I'm aware of that got released last year, (I don't watch TV or movies often), one being Star Wars, which I enjoyed, and Ip Man 3, which I'm still yet to see.

    I think they look pretty cool. Very cool

    Return of the Abominable Photo Thread

    Cause bugger it, why not.

    What photo editor should I get?

    Artweaver. It does the same sort of basic stuff as paint, with a few nice extra toys to play with.

    The Human Rights Poll

    I was trying to bring across something along these lines, but struggled to word it.

    The Human Rights Poll

    Well, sure. It was a fairly easy call, although I was over generalising a bit, but comparing the internet to other things that have been brought up made the call easier. Something like plumbing, like Thuryl mentioned, although we survived without it for so long, is related to our survival, and our rights. Having fresh water available and having sewerage disposed of? I'd call that important. Take that away, and a lot of large towns and cities will be rather messy. On the other hand, the internet being temporarily inactive will be more like a toddler losing a toy for most of those people. They won't be happy about it, they'll be inconvenienced. The most physical harm that will come to them is inconvenience. EDIT: Also, is it just me, or does the internet question seem rather frivolous mixed in with questions about euthanasia, torture, the death penalty and so forth?

    The Human Rights Poll

    That merely states it's common use amongst (mostly western) civilisation. While it has it's uses, it isn't life critical. It can be quite easily ditched and most peoples lives won't be for the worse.

    The Human Rights Poll

    The internet is a luxury, a nice thing to have. While it may make some things easier, it by no means is necessary for day to day living. Civilisation survived for a very long time without it. Food, water and shelter are absolute necessites, and then you have basic personal rights like culture, faith, orientation etc. While the internet may or may not make these things easier in some fashion, it is not needed.

    The Human Rights Poll

    Healthcare, Yes Education, yes. Internet, No. It's just a toy that isn't necessary for anything. Reproduction, yes. Torture, prohibited, it's not honorable Euthanasia. Only in certain situations, like terminal illness or a similar condition Death penalty, Yes, but for murder, rape, child molestation etc. Abortion, Under extreme cases, where the birth was forced upon, or it will harm the mother. Apart from that, it is a person thats growing in there. Rights , I chose from conception. Whether or not the child is in or out of it's mother is no difference. Nukes. Noooo. To many negative consequences for little to no gain. Like This

    Touchpad over a mouse

    A touchpad is awkward and annoying at the best of times. A mouse it is.

    Kel posting quotes quoting himself seems to be the "it" thing.

    Finding a female equivalent maybe on the hard side. Having a hero or a mentor is much easier to make as a muscular figure bathed in suave masculinity than it is to write for a female character. On top of that, a female character would be more complex as a personality, a male figure can just point a gun and blow things up.

    I've never got into the Vampire genre other than the Blade Trilogy. Is it really worth it? Does anyone know of something decent? Edit: If you do suggest something. please don't let it be Twilight.

    You shouldn't have to worry about that guy. Why? This guy is more than likely to come after him.

    It's that time again

    Economic Left/Right: -5.12 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.51 That's quite a difference to the last time I took the test. Most of the time, my results get me close to Stalin's

    For Nalyd.

    Does it matter how it is done, as long as it is done? The ends justify the means, right?

    Weak WiFi

    I've noticesd that older laptops tend to get better, stronger, sturdier signals than newer laptops, regards of OS. The only thing I can think of is that WLAN cards are getting worse.

    Split off: Respecting and learning

    One thing that gets me is people being referred to as asexual. It's not like I'm gonna have kids by mitosis or anything
