Wait a minute...

assfingers From: assfingers Date: July 26th, 2006 08:34 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: Wait a minute...

Glad you understand your place in the world.

So far the poll says you're the best to screw, graye's the kind of guy you marry, and everyone hates _sterno_. Interesting.

My brother cessna182 and I were raised on Tintin. Early in our relationship jenniever went to France and brought me back a Tintin mouse pad, my most beloved desk object. My disturbing obsession with Anthony Bourdain reached new heights when I found out he grew up reading Tintin too. I introduced myself to him as another Jersey boy who grew up reading Tintin.

All these years, I had no idea we shared this love. Oh, the wasted years we could have sat back and discussed Thomson and Thompson or Haddock or whatever came to mind. It brings a tear to my eye.

I answered that, and even I'm disturbed.

_sterno_ got the short end of the stick, there.

But I stand by my choice.

Re: Wait a minute...

That's the beauty of the F-Marry-Kill conundrum. If it's a good trio, you're feeling disturbed and/or pissing at least one person off.

Re: Wait a minute...

I think I'm upset that more than one person would sleep with assfingers.

Including myself.

Ah, but yes, I'd marry graye in a heartbeat.

My second choice was F graye, Marry _sterno_ and kill assfingers.

Because I know you were curious.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: July 26th, 2006 09:35 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: Wait a minute...

I would not have guessed that second choice at all.

So you would either sleep with assfingers before getting married to graye while leaving _sterno_ in a ditch. BUT - if you can't marry graye you'll just sleep with him. But marrying assfingers is so horrible that you'll kill him and shack up with _sterno_ instead. Interesting.

Re: Wait a minute...

I think I come out on top in all those scenarios.

Re: Wait a minute...

But the other two being switched is the really interesting thing for me.

Re: Wait a minute...

I grew up on Tintin, too.

My goodness, I wonder where all those bookss are now. I had -so- many, including a few IN FRENCH (mom picked them up while she was there).

I have a mission now.

Re: Wait a minute...

Every time I walk into the local comic store, I stare longingly at the recently released collection, and consider buying them up. One day. One day.

I grew up with softcover books, mostly in English, with maybe one in French. When I got older (late grade school older) I got a hardcover one in French, and the same book in English, so I could compare the two. The big thing I got out of it was that Snowy barked the same in both languages.

Shit, now I really do want to read 'em all again.

Screw it, I'm doing PitBoss

After reading more about it, I've decided that PitBoss is the way to go. It can act as a hybrid between PBEM and multiplayer. If we find ourselves around at the same time, it acts just like a multiplayer game. If we're up to take a turn, it'll spam us with email. Being spammed might convince the other person to then connect, turning it INTO such a multiplayer game. We can also set it to only wait 12, 24, 36, or whatever hours between turns. So if some jobber decides to go on vacation for a few days, he better hope the computer does a good job of maintaining his empire for him.

So next week I'll set one up, give people the option to join it, and let 'er rip.

I'm talking to myself. I hope no one's monitoring the AHaBs.

The only problem is that PitBoss needs to be installed on the same computer as Civ 4. So I can't just throw it on a server, like I've done for UT2k4/VGA Planets/whatever. Either I install Civ 4 on my desktop and no longer multitask WoW/Civ 4, or I set up my laptop as a Civ 4 server and no longer carry it around without notifying you monkeys first. Gotta weigh the options on that one. Maybe I can install it, see how much bandwidth PitBoss takes, and connect to the server from my laptop...

Re: I'm talking to myself. I hope no one's monitoring the AHaBs.

I shall be looking into this expansion, but I can't promise to be available for play at all until after Monday (exam day).

Youpi, a Tintin icon! I am in love! I grew up on that friggin show.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: July 28th, 2006 01:43 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Show??

Tintin wasn't a show until 1990. Tintin's been around since 1929!

Charles de Gaulle once said "My only international rival is Tintin. We are both little people who are not afraid of big ones".

I have civ4, but haven't played it in a while and don't have the expansion yet. I really liked the way multi player was done in the civ3 expansions, though. Same time with simult turns. Really sped up the game. Not sure if I'd want to PBEM, since i'd probably forget what i'm doing before i'd see another turn. Pitboss sounds really cool, though.

I'll be watching to see what you end up doing.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: July 28th, 2006 01:44 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I think I'm setting a PitBoss server up Tuesday, as that's the earliest graye can play. Expect more details soon!
