Re: election prediction

Your impression is in stark contrast to people I knew with jobs (& some with family) who voted Bernie, only to have the Dems undermine the people they claim to represent and tarnish the primaries. This is in stark contrast to the GOP who claim to represent people, but only represent the highest bid...

Re: B0rken avatars

Ive never managed a phpbb board, but i have SMF boards and when this happens, it was always a permissions issue to a directory. That would be my guess too, and I have managed PHPBB installs. Unfortunately, I haven’t set one up in about a decade. I can’t recall if it’d be in tmp not 777 or the image...

Re: election prediction

Then there's the fact that Sanders was packing stadiums of 13,000 strong for his rallies while Clinton couldn't even fill a 200 person school gymnasium [...] I actually got the impression that in caucus-style votes, Bernie won because all of his supporters were unemployed or college-aged kids, thus...

This Monday, March 27th, starting at 2PM PDT there will be a planned outage at my provider, with an estimated 2–3 hour window where mysql dependent subdomains will not work. According to my provider: “As part of this improvement, we will be upgrading your MySQL server to improve stability as well as...

Re: Spriggins

Our current player-based joke/story is that he quickly teleported away and partied it all away, but it’s be nicer to give players a “rescue your money” quest as a tradeoff for losing it in the first place. The RP reason for spriggans making off with your money so fast is that, if they can teleport y...

Re: Portal Moves For February

I don't really care how they were found or who found them. I just know a mystic explained to me that they were skryable, and that the apostrophe made a problem at times. Whatever. Interesting. I didn't know that apostrophes could mess with skrying. don't you just omit apostrophes and spaces in name...

Re: Windowz: alt-fkey macros

If the alt-key works like option on the mac (which it is usually mapped to), the character sent is the alternate character along with the option key. So to use "option-s" as a trigger, you’d really write the trigger option–ß (for non-mac users, option-s= ß). This is bit bizarre, but unless they chan...

Re: Pet progress NPC for the stable area

One last thing occurred to me: one of the guiding CL tenets is that players should never loose* a ton of exp. Pet ranks do take a good investment of time, and paramount in many players interest is not losing things that take a lot of effort to aquire. This could easily be that case: while one rank m...

Re: Pet progress NPC for the stable area

Wait, so the pet's experience counter is downsized if he would get to the next level but the healer's level isn't high enough yet? That doesn't seem right. It's how Slarti designed it and I'm guessing it basically NEEDS to do that due to the fragility of CL's code. I'm fine with it being that way, ...

Re: Back without macros

Shaky, per your request I updated the QuikNDirty cad builder ( http://noivad.net/moonstone_functions-template.php ). choosing "none" for the restart moonstone modifier will now use the cad-lock modifier to do the swap while the trigger labeled swap will use the unmodified selection — esc in shaky’s ...

Re: Portal Moves For February

So, I take it Yappy is responsible for this uptick in player login? I am but a mere cog in the Great GM Machine. There is a team of volunteers -- both GMs and players -- whose hard work is reflected within this update. And this update is a significant milestone -- all factors into the uptick. I'm c...

Re: Portal Moves For February

nice try. If there’s one we don’t find, then exposing the hiding place is ruining a potential future hiding place. :) “Don’t do eet!” So, I take it Yappy is responsible for this uptick in player login? If so… this is a great login incentive. I’d be thinking up more with how popular these are. I like...

Re: Pet progress NPC for the stable area

I see your point, and the “patch” for it is community info. Now I’m probably the last person that can use the “community” reason, considering that Wiki of potential if not, somewhat outright, spoilers. If you’d like a Quick player-based fix I suggest making something to post here (or I will gladly a...
