  1. Whoa that was my 999th post and this is my 1000th. *Eerie music*
  2. Hey guys. Man, it's been a while hasn't it? I am delighted to see the forums still in such strong usage after as many years. Trip down memory lane sorta time for me, I guess. I noticed on my blog that I was getting a few hundred forwards to the material from mapcore so I swooped in to investigate. I have located the source of the issue! It's all your luvs. Thank you so much for the kind words, they really do mean a lot to me. I still don't fully know exactly what has occurred over the last ten days, nor do the doctors--I will say that I was released from the hospital and am back at home. Still not doing so great health wise, and I kinda hobble about like an old man, but I'm sure that's how most of you imagined me anyway Just wanted to drop by and say thank you. The blog will continue to be updated as the diagnosis evolves.

  4. Haha. Well, that's not really the project I'm on. But, if I were to wager a guess, I'd toss out that the caution striping was in the movie... everywhere. In addition, that door could cut you in HALF, and might be in some generous need for a bit of caution. My flaming butt hate was always for people being like "caution! It's a wall!." Or striping on the coffee maker! Cheers, -m,
  5. I finished it and I have 81 stars... Did that in three sittings, but they were LONG sittings. It's the best game I've played in probably a decade. ONWARD to 120!
  6. I LOVE sudden death unabashedly. Every death matters at that point-- really makes the game sweat bead up. I love the whole game, it rocks my socks clean the hell off.
  7. wow some of that stuff is like a decade old. man alive the internet is a scary place sometimes. Nice find, haha!
  8. Synergy! Cohesion! Cinematic Immersion!
  9. I know this seems like an ironic thread to throw down the ban stick... but I've had enough of this dude. Hope no one minds He's gone for good.
  10. I jumped the gun but I stand by my points. Clearly, Crispy is a cool dude who unfortunately is held to the standards that DaveL was. I don't think I come off as a "cunt" at all by how he chose to treat people. I think his legacy will stain the mod forever. He carried himself like he was the president of a company and not a 16 year old. And down the line all there is to show for it is a nice little art project four years in the making. Like I said in my opening post, I watched that mod chew up a lot of good people and treat them like crap for no reason. That's uncalled for and ironically as unprofessional as it pretends to be professional. Which is exceedingly irrelevant if Dave is out of the picture. Best of luck to you in the future and if you'd like I can delete my original post to better accentuate my not-a-grudge-holderness. And FMPONE, you are correct, you do not know me. Which is funny.

  12. You're continental. Just drive across the border. No but for real, I'm a little unsure as to how that all is working at the moment. I know a college degree makes it quite a bit simpler. Really, all I'm going on is that they want all the applications. Who knows, maybe we'll toss out offsite contracts to a few really qualified people (don't quote me on that.)
  13. I asked specifically and they said they wanted to look at all the applicants. So apply away.
