I'll be coming back to assemble one list which will stay posted here.

As you answer them I'll remove them from the list.
I think the promised list that has never been posted has earned a place on the promised list that has never been posted.

He's misunderstood. Complex. Occasionally thought he was a god that thought he always knew what was best. You know, he's a wizard.
...or a GM? ;)

Speaking of wizards and c-programmers.

Over the years, I've found that any scripter/programmer/MUD-GM that seeks the title of godhood, is usually someone with clinical delusions of grandeur. It doesn't matter if they set up a system where they have a title called "God of Tiddlywinks", and have 2000 subscribers. It's still certifiably nuts.

Then again, which is crazier; to be devoted to an unwashed, pale, cud-chewing thing that lives in their parents house at 40 that obsessively tweaks their Diku mud, or to have been that poorly-sexed code monkey?

And the Academy Award for 'rudest jerk' goes to...
“However,” said Dumbledore, speaking very slowly and clearly so that none of them could miss a word, “you will find that I will only truly have left this school when none here are loyal to me.”

Is one required to be a chef to know what tastes good?

For the record, I'm seeing who would react and how.Would you like crackers with your troll soup?Thanks!

I'm learning C++/XHTML/CSS/Actionscript 3.0/JavaScript(script.aculo.us), tend to gain weight if I'm not careful, and have lived with my parents more often than I care to admit. I got over it, and moved on. Yes, I did meet alot of crazies who ran muds. Matter of fact, I think my GF was one of them.

Really, do you think it's sane, or encourages sanity to show religious devotion to a GM/DM/etc?

edit: hm, the word "was" disappeared between the word think and GF. fixed so it makes sense again.

He wasn't judging on taste and he wasn't even judging the cooking.

He basically said people who do things he can't do live in holes and their mothers dress them funny. I know plenty of programmers and GMs that don't fit that description.

Er, no, read more carefully. My commentary was about people who seek godhood though MMOs.

Recap?
Dead Ends:
Catapult (Face it hes never coming back)
Anything to do with the brion brothers. (this is annoying as all hell) (Was this Pengy's stuff? PENGY COME BAAAAAAAAACK)
Tenebrion (Do we need to get the 6 ethereal pieces together and put them on garr before you'll let us save him?!?)
Noids Cavern (Oldschool)
Anything to do with Gaia seems to be untouched.
We have yet to solve crypt. Not a dead end though, as far as we can tell...
Geharza.
The original Mobius Storyline.
Peaceton
Iceton
The Ethereal plane really needs to caaaaaalm doooown.

anything else in this recap?
reckinyards: Never working on healers is all the rage...
Stinkfist: That's just what a GM would say. Face it you are a sock puppet for all the GMs and everyone knows it.

Enealda wants you to talk to her brother first, who hangs out under Bick's. Good luck getting in there past first circle.
Normal is just a stereotype.
