HA Idea...coming from me....suprising

I got an HA idea i want you to look at. This is it. --DoA Master 20:35, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Looks basically like a hexway, except the current hexways out perform it easily. Virulence is a pretty poor skill choice as far as.. well, pretty much anything goes. It looks like a lot of squishy and not enough defense. =/ Also, you'll never get to HA, much less hold, unless you have Make Haste and Song of Concentration. ··· Danny-sig 20:49, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
(EC) To clarify - by not enough defense, I mean not enough active defense. Warrior's can be active defense when linebacking, which nothing in your build can frankly do, and you're wasting an Elite on Fevered Dreams. The best defense is utlity, which the build is largely lacking. ··· Danny-sig 20:53, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Fevered dream hexways actually work ok (I haven't looked at your build yet, but just saying). They're not really as overpowering as proper hexways, but you gain manly points for being a "condition" hexway, lol. Reunion 22:55, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

wtb script. One of the things we do at my work is give out free copies of Derive 5, which is basically a graphing calculator on crack developed by TI for computer. Anyways, for some retarded reason we have the installer for the trial version, then have the user go to the CD directory, copy a different .exe to the installation folder, then run a patch to make it a permanent version. So I'm tired of asking/showing people if they know how to look up folders and copy/paste files, so before we make another batch from a stack of blank CDs, I wanted to automate this shit, and figured it probably wouldn't be hard. So ideally, the CD contains just:

  • Setup.exe (trial version installer)
  • Replacement.exe (replacement for non-trial version)
  • Patcher.exe
  • Some autorun.inf or .exe or batch file or something to automate this shit

I'm thinking the automatic run should look something like this:

  • 1) Run Setup.exe
  • 2) Once finished, ask the user where the installation directory is; have a default location filled in from the start (i.e. %Program Files%\blahblah\). Then copy, overwrite the .exe in that folder. Oh, and include a cancel button obv.
  • 3) Run the patcher.exe

me love you long time if you do this; i don't expect it's that hard, but if it is, don't bother. — μαφλεσ 19:58, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

i've never written installers before, but if you can modify the installer script, i know the batch code you need to do that. ··· Danny-sig 20:21, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
tbh i don't think that you need to necessarily write a separate installer. all that really needs to happen is to run first installer, then have a prompt to specify the directory to copy the file into, then run the patcher. (did i mention i already have the setup and patcher?) — μαφλεσ 20:44, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Your vote on Build:Team - 2 Man UW Clear

no one's gonna pay for this as long as UWSCs are around. there are only 2 professions that can UWSC - Necromancer and Assassin. Other professions can't get an UW clear. People who are HoM or Survivor freaks are the people who want UW clears. + ℓγssάή [rage] 20:54, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

you only need to clear UW on one character for HoM. the only people who might be interested in it then are Survivors, and even a UW run isn't exactly survivor friendly. not to mention, you can go three man and do it in about half the time it takes with two man, saving cons and increasing the number of runs you can do and your payout. ··· Dannycbf 20:59, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Frosty has a point, and yet, I still found Danny's remarks funny. On a certain scale, yeah, he's right. If you look at all the Iowans, there are bound to be some clinically depressed ones, and some emo shitters. If you look at, say, the world, then yeah, those depressed Iowans could very well be the happiest people in the world. Point being I'm trying to see how long I can keep this post before I realize how stupidly stupid Danny has become. Also, where can I find you at around 5:30 on Friday Danny? Goodnight LA mcsig 01:56, 22 August 2009
It's kind of degrading to Africans to assume that all of them have no tech, no healthcare, no meds, etc. I have a friend from Zimbabwe and it pisses him off when people say things like, "How was it living in a third world country?" He always answers, "I lived 2 blocks from a McDonalds...". So...yea, assumptions are shit basically. KJ badge sig 06:19, 22 August 2009
I have a friend from zimbabwe also, we do many maths. He wants to make ridiculous amounts of money, then get a professorship afterwards. tbh, anyone who is in the condition that people think of when one mentions "africa" could never afford to come to u.s./europe anyways, so asking a question like that is always dumb ;o. People who ask questions like that are shitters who already have an answer to their questions cemented in their mind, anyways. — μαφλεσ 07:33, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Omigod, emo club. Where did this thing about Danny QQ'ing start? I can't see anything special anywhere. ---Chaos- 08:01, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Replace Africa with "the poorest regions of Ethiopia". A general reference to Afrcia was dumb. --Frosty Mc Admin 10:32, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

All you QQing-shitters didn't see Danny thought his life was pretty damn good already. He's just asking all the whiners who think their life is "oh-so-bad" to stop crying and do something constructive about it. Still <3 you guys though. pospospos!

Why do people pay to get run through UW? It can't be profitable if you're paying 30k/run O.o--TahiriVeila 19:34, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Because they aren't doing it for profit. This advert for a different runner explains it a little. AthrunAthrun SigFeya 19:58, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Dubbed the "killer rabbit" attack by the media, the Jimmy Carter rabbit incident involved a swamp rabbit that caught press imagination after furiously trying to board then-U.S. President Jimmy Carter's fishing boat on April 20, 1979.

Carter had gone on a solo fishing expedition in his hometown of Plains, Georgia when the rabbit approached his boat, "hissing menacingly, its teeth flashing and nostrils flared and making straight for the president",[1] trying desperately to enter the boat, causing Carter to flail at the swimming creature with the oars from his boat.

Upon returning to his office, Carter found his staff disbelieving of his story, insisting that rabbits couldn't swim, or that they would never approach a person threateningly.[2] A White House photographer had captured the incident on camera, however.[3]

Press Secretary Jody Powell mentioned the event to Associated Press correspondent Brooks Jackson on August 28, 1979, who filed the story with the wire service the following day. The story "President Attacked by Rabbit" was carried across the front page of The Washington Post, though the White House's refusal to release the photograph resulted in the newspaper using a cartoon parody of the Jaws poster labeled "PAWS" as its illustration.[1] The White House still refused to release the photograph of the incident to the media, until it turned up during the Reagan administration and the story saw another revival.

In Press Secretary Powell's 1986 book The Other Side of the Story, he recounted the story as follows:

" “Upon closer inspection, the animal turned out to be a rabbit. Not one of your cutesy, Easter Bunny-type rabbits, but one of those big splay-footed things that we called swamp rabbits when I was growing up.

“The animal was clearly in distress, or perhaps berserk. The President confessed to having had limited experience with enraged rabbits. He was unable to reach a definite conclusion about its state of mind. What was obvious, however, was that this large, wet animal, making strange hissing noises and gnashing its teeth, was intent upon climbing into the Presidential boat.” "</font> The incident with the rabbit became fodder for those illustrating Carter's presidency as hapless and enfeebled.[4] The incident was even mocked by the Republicans during the United States presidential election, 1980.

Posted by Ilya Somin: 30th Anniversary of Jimmy Carter's Battle With the "Killer Rabbit": http://volokh.com/archives/archive_2009_04_19-2009_04_25.shtml#1240260713


  Today is the 30th anniversary of a minor, but funny historical event:
  President Jimmy Carter's[1] victorious struggle with a "killer
  rabbit":
    On a fishing trip in Plains, Georgia, President Carter had an
    encounter with a "swamp rabbit". This seemingly trivial event was
    seized upon by the press and became a sort of Rorschach test of the
    Carter presidency: reporters and commentators saw in this story
    whatever they wanted to see in Carter's administration. Jody
    Powell, Carter's press secretary, described the affair in his 1986
    book The Other Side of the Story:
    It began late one afternoon in the spring of 1979. The President
    was sitting with a few of us on the Truman Balcony. He had recently
    returned from a visit to Plains, and we were talking about
    homefolks and how the quail were nesting and similar matters of
    international import.
    Suddenly, for no apparent reason -- he was drinking lemonade, as I
    recall -- the President volunteered the information that while
    fishing in a pond on his farm he had sighted a large animal
    swimming toward him. Upon closer inspection, the animal turned out
    to be a rabbit. Not one of your cutesy, Easter Bunny-type rabbits,
    but one of those big splay-footed things that we called swamp
    rabbits when I was growing up.
    The animal was clearly in distress, or perhaps berserk. The
    President confessed to having had limited experience with enraged
    rabbits. He was unable to reach a definite conclusion about its
    state of mind. What was obvious, however, was that this large, wet
    animal, making strange hissing noises and gnashing its teeth, was
    intent upon climbing into the Presidential boat.
    The President then evidently shooed the critter away from his boat
    with a paddle. The scene was captured on film by a White House
    photographer.
    The incident might have died of natural causes but for the fact
    that Powell himself later passed the story along to the press:
    Several months later I was chatting with Brooks Jackson, one of the
    White House correspondents for the Associated Press, over a cup of
    tea, as I remember. For reasons that I still do not fully
    understand, I told him about the President and the rabbit. I was
    the one who leaked the killer rabbit story.
    Although an experienced reporter, Brooks also failed to appreciate
    the significance of what he had heard. He did not rush to file an
    "urgent" story. In fact, he continued the conversation for some
    period of time and several more cups of tea. Not until the next day
    did he get around to sending this gripping account out over the
    wires to a waiting public.....
    We were soon corrected. The Washington Post, exercising the news
    judgement that we in the White House had come to appreciate so
    keenly, headed the piece "President Attacked by Rabbit" and ran it
    on the front page. The more cautious New York Times boxed it on
    page A-12. That night, all three networks found time to report the
    amazing incident. But that was just the beginning....
  Despite the fact that Carter succeeded in fighting off the rabbit, the
  incident was seem by many as a symbol of the fecklessness of his
  administration. I'm no great fan of President Carter's. But I don't
  think he was as bad a president as many people think. For example, he
  deserves credit for his support of airline and trucking deregulation,
  for initiating American aid to groups resisting Soviet rule in Poland
  and Afghanistan, and for assisting in the negotiation 1979
  Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty. Carter also made many errors of course,
  and I'm glad he was defeated in his reelection bid. To a large extent,
  however, he was the victim of extremely bad luck, as his term in
  office coincided with several catastrophes that he mostly didn't
  cause, but took much of the political blame for: a deep recession, the
  fall of the Shah in Iran, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan,
  among others. Carter's downfall epitomized [2]the tendency of voters
  to blame the incumbent president for anything bad that happens on his
  watch, regardless of whether he caused it.
  The "killer rabbit" incident was just one of many examples of Carter's
  extremely poor luck during his presidency.
