** MinotaurMage enters. ** MercuryMyst enters. MercuryMyst: umm... hi MinotaurMage: Hello MercuryMyst: i guess you're busy so i'll leave you to your work... MinotaurMage: We can chat if you wish MercuryMyst: umm... o.k... MercuryMyst: so what do you want to talk about? MinotaurMage: So, are you a newcomer who happened to find this area? MercuryMyst: well i've been wandering MinotaurMage: What do you usually like to talk about? *** MercuryMyst shrugs MinotaurMage: I'm a computer game enthusiast, so I like to talk about my favorites from time to time MercuryMyst: what kind of computer games? MinotaurMage: Role playing and some strategy(real time and turn based) MercuryMyst: cool MercuryMyst: i don't have very many games for my computer, but i have a playstation MinotaurMage: There's quite a variety out there. How are the playstation games? Do you like certain types of games more than others? MercuryMyst: i have 4 right now: final fantasy 8, pong, army men sarge's heroes 2, and darkstalkers MercuryMyst: i like rpg's and fighters MinotaurMage: Yeah, I heard Final Fantasy is pretty good. And the 3DO game is made for the PC market as well *** MercuryMyst nods MercuryMyst: i've heard ff7 is better than ff8, but i can't find it anywhere MercuryMyst: pong is boring MinotaurMage: Well, pong is how the whole craze got started... MercuryMyst: yeah i know MercuryMyst: i want to get marvel vs. capcom 2 but it's for dreamcast and i don't have one of those yet MercuryMyst: hey will you still be here in an hour or so? MinotaurMage: That's supposed to be the best fighting game on the consoles. Do you look over game review sites on the Web? MercuryMyst: nope MercuryMyst: i played it in an arcade MinotaurMage: Sure, I'll still be here. I'm expecting some other people here shortly MercuryMyst: o.k. 'coz i gotta run but i'll be back MercuryMyst: see ya :) MinotaurMage: Hello ** lazysod exits. MinotaurMage: Hello? ** lazysod enters. lazysod: booh! MinotaurMage: Moo! lazysod: moo ? ahh .. hmm.. still haven' redone that cow level yet.. my heroes are not yet up for that task yet MinotaurMage: I've done the Cow Level with each character except the Necro and Barbarian lazysod: ooh .. and at which levels? MinotaurMage: At level 30 usually, just before my third and last run thru Act 4 lazysod: ahh .. yeah .. that may be the level to try it.. i got the crap beat out of me the first time i tried it in an mp game, around level 25 or so. that was a bit early it seems MinotaurMage: Well, I'm level 23 on the realms. Not into Act 3 yet lazysod: ahh .. which realm is that? MinotaurMage: I have two more Santuary runs and 3 runs thru Canyon of Magi MinotaurMage: I'm on the US West realm. I've had 3 people join my games during my MP sessions since I began lazysod: hmm... i lazysod: i've got only one or two characters on west.. one.. friggingsod, my second barbarian,. he' s at level 23 orso MinotaurMage: I just need a good weapon. I don't have much money to gamble on bows... MinotaurMage: I did get a nice rare armor, so I'll be using it for a while MinotaurMage: Lose any hardcore players yet? MinotaurMage: And have you tried single player hardcore? MinotaurMage: Raining pretty hard outside here in Arizona lazysod: well .. i lost an open and a realm barbarian with the same name. barbarella.. the realm version died at level 30, nearly 31, while exploring the outer cloister in nightmare mode lazysod: i've done all kinds of hardcore, realm, open, single, multi.. 5 players games even .. all fun. MinotaurMage: Hardcore is interesting. You can restore characters if you do the single player hardcore, but I think it's better to stay faithful to the way it was meant lazysod: nods... i had a backup of my original hardcore barbarian on open - but restoration would be cheating. so i won' MinotaurMage: Do you pass on items from a dead hardcore character to their successors? lazysod: -shakes head- nope.. not possible.. that's doable in mp games where the others can loot you after death - if you set the flag, but no way to get items of a dead player after exiting the game MinotaurMage: By the way, what do you think of the screenshot idea on the GWF page? lazysod: -blushes- must admit that i haven' really looked them over yet MinotaurMage: I've got 2 there. I'll be adding some more soon(probably pics of my MM8 game and some others come to mind...) lazysod: -smiles- i'll go have a look soon then and tell you what i think.. feel free to poke my nose about it on the icq or such.. i'm known to have a hole in my mind the size of texas MinotaurMage: Ok. lazysod: so what has happened to the looting data now you have the engine? MinotaurMage: I've updated my site with the MM8 info as well just recently. I was computing percentages, and have one detailed looting run left MinotaurMage: And already from my calculations, it looks like the looting the same as in MM7 lazysod: well .. i saw a mention about the updated page yes.. i was just wondering if you were doing some more research on it or not.. i mean - shouldnt be really necessary with all the data on hand MinotaurMage: There' s really nothing more to add. I'll put on the actual percentages and compare with my results. And I don't know if I'll ever find exact percentages for the artifacts and relics MinotaurMage: And of course, the graphic charts and such...Then silence until I get more D2 set characters done or MM9 comes out lazysod: nods.. i dont know.. it's been ages since i played m&m .. must say i've not returned to any of them after stashing 8 in the closet after finishing it for the 5th time. lazysod: -smiles- mm9.. hmm.. wonder when that may come and how it may look MinotaurMage: I've yet to finish MM7 or MM8(but I'm close to done in MM7) lazysod: well.. i know you will keep gaining xp.. but it goes down so quickly.. i mean, when you get about 50 percentm of what you should be getting it isn' fun any more MinotaurMage: Druid sounds ok at best(maybe I'm too biased against the Necro). Necro to me is the worst to play if you make him a summoner lazysod: hmmm.. i quite like necro play.. i've got barbarians for when i want to fight myself, and necro' for when i want to sit back and relax. especially in the higher levels that works quite good MinotaurMage: I'm still leaning towards Paladin/Sorceress/Amazon. Any of those 3 choices are good(Barbarian is a bit rough for me to play for some reason) lazysod: hmmm.. i tried paladin.. ended up at level 53 and a lot of wrong skills.. never really tried a new paladin from the bottom up. tried the other classes too, but nothing really works for me, except hte barby and the necro MinotaurMage: And I've played each variant of a character up to level 23(except my Polearm barbarian) lazysod: wow.. that i would never be able to do.. i' get bored out of my skull.. i had a polearm hc barby.. shrug.. i guess i played too fast.. he died and it was all my fault MinotaurMage: I've finished with Bowazon(first), Maul Barbarian, Spearazon, Cold/Lightning Sorceress, and getting close to finishing with 2 necros MinotaurMage: One's the classic summoner route, and the other is a fighter who uses NO summoning lazysod: phew.. i've finished with a paladin twice (normal and nightmare), a barbarian once, nearly twice, a necro once, a hardcore barby once, and that was about it lazysod: whew.. the non- summon necro.. that must be hard MinotaurMage: And of course all the characters that are at level 23 and getting ready to move into Act 3 MinotaurMage: Well, he does use Bone Spear all the time so mana potions are a necessity. He's going to learn Poison Nova and Bone Prison(for bosses) ** HodgePodge enters. lazysod: so how do you play with all these characters then? lazysod: hello hodge MinotaurMage: Hello HodgePodge HodgePodge: Hi, I Didn't Miss the GWF Meeting This Time 8) MinotaurMage: Lazy, I'm a fanatic with my D2 time... MinotaurMage: Characters are easy to build up to level 23 in my opinion, and it's easy to make short sessions(a few hours or so) lazysod: -grins- well dave .. i see.. so am i, but still i find it hard to do more then 5 chars at a time.. --grins-- just the same with community akas really :) HodgePodge: I came here last night because I wasn't sure which day the meeting was supposed to be held. MinotaurMage: Yeah, I'd be confused too I suppose...19 characters with more to come(eek!) lazysod: that's what i mean.. i wouldn't know who' be carrying what sword, what quest and what whatnot. lazysod: hmm -- hodge.. seems i' m not the only being badly informed then -- gives dave a teasing poke MinotaurMage: Heh, I usually quit at a good point. And I don't memorize who has what HodgePodge: There were two people here, Fredrick & Sil(somethingorother). MinotaurMage: Yeah. I did send out a secondary email(sorry about the first one) lazysod: email? what adres have you on me hten? i didn' even receive the first MinotaurMage: No, I sent you the notice thru ICQ lazysod: -grins- yeah .. after rose told me about it i guess. ah well.. i' here now MinotaurMage: And I was going to ask for updating email addresses, but it looks like only 3 of us will be chatting here lazysod: -decides to pull the apostrophe key out of the keyboard because it 'sticks' lazysod: hmm.. not sure.. i guess rose will come online any minute now and join in . ofcourse, that'll be the four of us then.. but with a bit of luck k comes too. that makes five MinotaurMage: LOL. I almost had to get a new keyboard when I got a bit of milk in it MinotaurMage: At least keyboards aren't too expensive to replace lazysod: hmmm.. a while ago i was pissed, angry.. and poured a bottle of beer over the keyboard, on purpose. needless to say it was wrecked lazysod: but i meant ' stick ' as in ehm. how to explain.. if you press it and then e it comes é MinotaurMage: Yeah, it's not meant to take that sort of abuse. I would not be surprised if both of my keyboards outlast my computers ** lazysod exits. MinotaurMage: Thought with some gaming system requirements I may need to get an upgrade within a few years HodgePodge: I can only stay for a few more minutes, then I gotta go. I hope some more people stop by. MinotaurMage: Me too, but thanks for coming. HodgePodge: Where did lazysod go? All of a sudden he was gone. MinotaurMage: Let me know what you think of the screenshot thing on the GWF page too ** lazysod enters. MinotaurMage: He probably went to the Community to fetch rosemaria HodgePodge: Welcome back Lazy. ** rosemaria enters. rosemaria: Hello HodgePodge: Hello rosemaria MinotaurMage: Greetings and salutations lazysod: -grins- frupping bad windows.. i hate a seperate window.. accidently closed the outer window and with that the chat closed too... lazysod: hello rose.. MinotaurMage: At least you did not blue-screen... HodgePodge: I liked the screen shots on the GWF page. I can't get my computer to make screenshots to send to you. lazysod: blue screen? hmm .. if it would have done that the neighbours would have woken up rosemaria: what did I miss ? HodgePodge: I pressed the Alt key & the Print Screen Key like you said but it didn't work. MinotaurMage: Hmm. That's odd. Any computer should be able to do it MinotaurMage: You need to then "Paste" the picture into an image editor(like Photshop or even Microsoft word would work) HodgePodge: Oh, okay, I'll try that tomorrow when I play M&M. Do you have any preferences as to which game you get screenshots from? MinotaurMage: Alt and Print Screen just takes the picture. Paste is how you get the picture to show ** MercuryMyst enters. MinotaurMage: No preferences. And silly screenshots are welcome too MinotaurMage: Welcome back HodgePodge: Welcome MercuryMyst MercuryMyst: hi i'm back sorry i'm late lazysod: hello mercurymyst.. --frowns-- an unknown name.. should i know you? MercuryMyst: stupid computer wouldn't let me on... *** HodgePodge Smiles & Waves Goodbye. rosemaria: Hi LM HodgePodge: I gotta go now but it's been real. See you all soon. Bye. MinotaurMage: You're not late...A lot of people I chat regularly with just showed up a few minutes ago rosemaria: Bye HodgePodge MinotaurMage: Thanks again for coming! MercuryMyst: oh... o.k ** HodgePodge exits. *** MercuryMyst curls up in a chair MercuryMyst: umm... MinotaurMage: Did you ever finish your MM8 game, Rose? lazysod: -chuckles- rosemaria: *blushes* no..... MinotaurMage: Don't worry. I've yet to finish my MM7 game, and my brother bought that for me two years ago lazysod: ahhh ...dave.. be ashamed..m&m 7 was the shortest ever.. MinotaurMage: I'm close to finishing, but Diablo 2 is my main obsession at the moment. MinotaurMage: I thought MM8 was supposed to be shorter than MM7 was. lazysod: hmmm.. well .. single path m&m 7 is probably shorter. if you do both paths its larger i guess. not sure.. both took me a week rosemaria: I haven't played MM7 yet and am probably 2/3 done with 8 ** MercuryMyst exits. lazysod: -shrugs- compared to 3 months for m&m 3 MinotaurMage: I remember MM3 and Worlds of Xeen(fond memories of course) lazysod: -smiles- yeah.. me too .. still play them on occasion.. did you ever play Swords of Xeen? MinotaurMage: Yeah, I finished that one too MinotaurMage: Though it was the weakest "link of the chain" MinotaurMage: You'll get up to around level 50 in Swords lazysod: well.. as far as i see it it' not in the chain so to say.. it' a game by fans.. lazysod: so it's unbalanced, short, and really tacky at times. but still i loved it MinotaurMage: Not an epic game like Xeen was(I got to over level 200 on this) MinotaurMage: It's ok. It beats Descent to Undermountain(which I was a sucker to buy) lazysod: nods.. ooh yeah.. i puzzled my way through all the depths of any dungeon and puzzle in 3 .. lazysod: dtu?? --pardon while i seek a bucket to hurl-- runs off into a corner MinotaurMage: I still have the game in the closet. But I did finish it, so at least I don't have to worry about playing it again rosemaria: *groan* I picked that out of a bargin bin over the holidays. $6 MinotaurMage: And of course the MM6 limited edition that has MM1 and MM2. I seriously need to plan on when I'll restart at the beginning(and do a good quality walkthru of the series up to Xeen) MinotaurMage: You also bought Descent to Undermountain? MinotaurMage: Either of you heard news about whether Warlords Battlecry is any good? rosemaria: *nods* but I had trouble installing it for some reason. the version I have says Win 95 and I'm running 98 lazysod: hmm.. i have m&m 1 and m&m 2 on the quintology disc that has 1 thru 5 and swords lazysod: warlords battlecry.. not sure.. heard at least one person very happy with it. MinotaurMage: I asked in the appropriate newsgroup, but never got a response lazysod: -chuckles- but that's the problem then isn't it? with current news groups nowhere is 'appropriate' .. - -rolls eyes- lazysod: be right back .. need to shake the weazel MinotaurMage: Count yourself fortunate you never saw DTU in action(bad graphics, gameplay and bugs) rosemaria: ROFL...mental image alert MinotaurMage: And I probably should resume my HoMM3 playing soon so that I have a chance to finish it before the D2 expansion comes out rosemaria: I'm still working on my HC barbarians, one on east and one open lazysod: mental image? lazysod: ooohh yes.. i might be getting the HoMM 3 complete box tomorrow.. lazysod: not that i'd play it, but just to have it rosemaria: I knew the game market was lean lately but not -that- lean MinotaurMage: You don't have HoMM3, Lazy? lazysod: i think the problem with games lately is the big, bigger, biggest... most games take teams of 40, 50 to develop.. that' s fucking expensive.. so if you make a game and can't sell it your instantly bankrupt .. so i think that brakes game makers lazysod: and nope - i have only a copy of the original games disc.. not the expansions MinotaurMage: I have HoMM3 and the expansion. I stopped at the final mission of the second campaign if I remember correctly lazysod: hmm.. i guess i played the first mission, and that' about it.. my brain lacks a strategic thinking unit , amongst many other thigns MinotaurMage: I kinda liked the Stronghold town due to its ability to get built up quickly(and with some fast creatures) MinotaurMage: I guess that rules out Starcraft for you too, Lazy MinotaurMage: Well, Warlords and Baldur's Gate 2 are the only titles recently I've heard that are good(although this Alice game has some rave reviews) lazysod: starcraft.. nods.. tried it.. got beaten the crap out by the computer after mission 6 orso.. but i -am- going to buy warcraft 3.. just because i love the orcs lazysod: ooh .. yeah .. alice in wonderland with a carver knife.. gets some very good reviews.. might think about that. MinotaurMage: Heh. I doubt I'll buy it. Blizzard's going down in their quality in support rosemaria: *nods* I have no comparision really, but I can agree it could be much better MinotaurMage: And I thought briefly about trying MinotaurMage: I thought briefly about trying Wizards and Warriors, but I'm not sure if it's worth the effort lazysod: hmm.. who knows? w&w might be fun.. although i'm afraid it's just a good looking thing without a story or game behind it MinotaurMage: Most of the complaints I heard have been about the interface, but if it makes a low cost then it might be worth my time rosemaria: *sigh* I'm still waiting on Wizardry 8 MinotaurMage: And I did not get Crusaders of M&M even though it was $10 MinotaurMage: Isn't Elder Scrolls 3 supposed to come out this year too? rosemaria: haven't heard of that one lazysod: wizardry ... hmm .. never rally played these.. i;ve got nemesis here.. don't know if it belongs to the series. but it was too slow on my old computer. might try it again now MinotaurMage: If no fantasy game breaks out, there's always hope that the Lord of the Rings movie will do well MinotaurMage: Nemesis sounds like Zork MinotaurMage: But I could be wrong... lazysod: -ahhh-- yes.. that movie. lazysod: nemesis -- nope.. nemesis is not a zork game.. uhm.. a movie like variant on the wizardry series.. i' have to look for the box. it' pretty old now. MinotaurMage: BTW, the word muggle in Harry Potter books was a common term in the 20s for marijuana lazysod: say what? i've never read any harry potter.. in fact, i hardly read anything at all. love tolkien, eddings and pratchett though, and salinger as well. muggle.. hmm .. sounds like huggle -- feels like boggle - uggle - ?? rosemaria: trivia moment or did I miss something? lazysod: -grins- i was just about to think the same MinotaurMage: Well, I don't see the slang or terminology of a book to be a big deal(even if it has other meanings) MinotaurMage: But, with that knowledge school boards and religious groups will now try harder to ban the book lazysod: -shrug- banning a book because it in some strange way refers to marijuana? MinotaurMage: The cost of the whole LOR movie series was over $270 million rosemaria: Ah...yeah...they were already going toward that for some other reason lazysod: hmm.. i heard about a potter book yes.. i see i must keep a more open eye on events. so what' the deal with that book? MinotaurMage: Well, more "fuel for the fire" with the satanic accusations lazysod: -now thoroughly hates the apostrophe key and decides to remove it with a hammer- MinotaurMage: Beats me. I probably should read at least the first one. To me, I think it's just lite fantasy rosemaria: *rolls eyes* Anytime you have something succeed so well, people line up to tear it down MinotaurMage: And don't forget the inevitable lawsuit too lazysod: lawsuits-- ears perk up.. ahh .. thats my specialty MinotaurMage: There was already one lawsuit over the Harry Potter books rosemaria: lawsuit because?? MinotaurMage: Some author challenged plagurism(sp?) of their work MinotaurMage: But the lawsuit did not succeed lazysod: ah well.. that's pretty normal too isn' t it? lawsuits for that.. the same happens eveyrwhere where people make something.. others see it, like it, and claim it.. just like software MinotaurMage: Yeah, though I'd be not surprised to see more D2 clones than the original Diablo got(Darkstone, Nox, etc) lazysod: nods.. although i do expect a few spin offs. might be fun.. revenant was quite good for instance MinotaurMage: Never played that one. I did buy Darkstone, but it was just not good enough(maybe I expected too much) lazysod: darkstone.. the title rings a bell.. but i can't picture it anymore MinotaurMage: You had 4 characters in that game, and you wandered around to do quests like in Diablo(but with a 3d perspective) lazysod: ooohh.. now i remember.. tir was raving about it.. never played it myself MinotaurMage: It was too clunky, and if you got mobbed with a fighter character you were dead lazysod: ahh ... hmm.. really don' t know.. i've not seen or played it.. did you ever play Thief? MinotaurMage: No. Only 3d game I've played is Drakan(rpg game anyway) lazysod: ahh ..thats another one i've never played MinotaurMage: Though Drakan is more of an action/Tomb Raider game lazysod: thief is cool though.. a bit of thinking, sneaking around. and throwiing unconcious guards into a well - MinotaurMage: Fun and bloody action, but short(a good Diablo alternative though) lazysod: hmmm .. bloody action.. i like that.. that' why i loved doom so much. MinotaurMage: Any other ideas for GWF page besides my screenshot idea? lazysod: shakes head -- not really. rosemaria: Nothing comes to mind at the moment, sorry. MinotaurMage: Thanks anyway lazysod: -sighs- so what has the action been for the gwf lately? i've seen ribannah return to the comm, but as usual she doesn't speak to me. MinotaurMage: I'll have fun with the screenshots for at least the next few months rosemaria: hodgepodge has been fielding questions in MM6 MinotaurMage: Very little action. That's a problem too, but I'm not sure what can be done to remedy that besides another M&M game lazysod: another easter egg.. yes.. that might do it. although i really don't know what and if any 3do is planning for m&m 9. MinotaurMage: Hmmm, that covers a bit of ground. I'd say several eggs lazysod: several eggs? you know more about m&m 9 then then i do? MinotaurMage: No, like I said...No news at the moment lazysod: ahh .. misread that then.. thought you meant m&m 9 would feature several new easter eggs MinotaurMage: Beats me, and I honestly don't know when MM9 is due for release lazysod: -shrugs- me neither. although i'm guessing early this year.. may or june or so a** FrederickTW enters. FrederickTW: Well, I know, I know... I am late again MinotaurMage: Hi, Frederick FrederickTW: I could not have come earlier FrederickTW: Hello FrederickTW: How many people were there originally? MinotaurMage: That's ok. We saved a seat for you FrederickTW: Did I miss Steve and Ribannah?? FrederickTW: Thanks FrederickTW: =) MinotaurMage: They did not show up FrederickTW: oh... FrederickTW: this is the first meeting I actually attend MinotaurMage: HodgePodge did drop by though FrederickTW: because I show up at different time or something FrederickTW: oh, strange FrederickTW: last night she did when I called her lazysod: hey frederick.. FrederickTW: we had a talk with Sil and her FrederickTW: more so with Sil rosemaria: Hello FrederickTW: ah, lazy!! hello FrederickTW: helo rosemaria lazysod: more strange names. FrederickTW: any secret plans for the guild?gain FrederickTW: let's see... what can I offer... perhaps if you need a decent web designer... just send me an email =) FrederickTW: I like to do it but I don't know what to do it for MinotaurMage: I did add M&M screenshots, but if others have good ideas I'm willing to try those rosemaria: Hi, don't believe we've met yet Frederick FrederickTW: well, now we did FrederickTW: I am a wizard =) rosemaria: *grin* FrederickTW: *smile* lazysod: a wizard.. hmm.. what kind of wizard? rosemaria: Cleric class here, healer FrederickTW: oh, well I have a cru... on a cleric... sorry lol FrederickTW: I go to school... so there are those that I call "evil saints" FrederickTW: ok enough about that FrederickTW: we had a whole conversation of 2 hours on that last night with SIl FrederickTW: Sil FrederickTW: so how many people were there originally? MinotaurMage: Sil and I collaborated a few times lazysod: shrug -- i've not been there yesterday . FrederickTW: sorry we didn't invite you FrederickTW: it was Sil and I, talking about clerics lol FrederickTW: I do that sometime FrederickTW: I start talking about it and now I tell Steve and Sil my stories of love FrederickTW: lol FrederickTW: Well, I just got back FrederickTW: I will need to take a shower, and that is about 30 minutes total FrederickTW: I will teleport back asap FrederickTW: bye! lazysod: bye -- grins rosemaria: talkative fellow, why haven't I seen him on the boards? lazysod: nods.. i was thinking the same lazysod: and i' m still wondering who that mm was earlier rosemaria: I thought it was Lady Midnight but I guess it was a stray MinotaurMage: I'm not sure what time zone Frederick is in MinotaurMage: The other person sounded like a stray to me. We talked for about 15-20 minutes lazysod: i don't know if it was lm.. don' know fredericks time zone either.. not mine i guess. at least i don' usually shower at 03:15 MinotaurMage: That sounds a bit erotic there in taking a late shower (wink, wink) lazysod: -lmao- rosemaria: *chuckles* He did say he returned from somewhere didn't he? MinotaurMage: *Come one and all to the late night body wash* lazysod: -roflmao- lazysod: -humm- i'll go elsewhere for that if you don't mind dave.. MinotaurMage: Um, I thought he did. MinotaurMage: Ok rosemaria: And I'd follow him *pointing to Lazy* lazysod: --mmmms-- -smiles at rose- MinotaurMage: Aha! Gotta have a little fun every now and then... rosemaria: little? rosemaria: *grin* lazysod: -grins ear to ear- MinotaurMage: Well, it's getting pretty late here(and I know it's real late over where you're at Lazy) FrederickTW: ok I am back FrederickTW: hey, you guys were talking about me! FrederickTW: "talkative fellow"?? FrederickTW: lol FrederickTW: well, yeah, I talk too much, perhaps FrederickTW: but I type fast rosemaria: Ooops...busted MinotaurMage: That was a quick shower lazysod: -grins and rolls eyes- FrederickTW: lol FrederickTW: you're funny! FrederickTW: well, yes MinotaurMage: Hope you're not dripping all over your keboard FrederickTW: I am in the 3DO time zone, messageboard time FrederickTW: no, no I am not FrederickTW: normally I like taking hour long showers, but this is an exception FrederickTW: and I returned from school FrederickTW: lol talkative fellow lazysod: ahh .. board time feller.. -9 from me then FrederickTW: reason you have not seen me on the board is that I am on around 3-6 pm board time FrederickTW: and that might not be your time MinotaurMage: Hmm. So does that mean you're in California with the lousy weather, power outages and such? lazysod: nods.. i' m often online around 22:00 - 01:00 board time, and later around 05:00 to 07:00 FrederickTW: and also I have too little time =( FrederickTW: yeah, lol FrederickTW: talkative fellow.... I hope that's not bad =) rosemaria: of course not, we like talkative FrederickTW: yeah, well, I have to rely on this skill I mastered at school FrederickTW: currently I am trying to "charm" a cleric FrederickTW: and it difficult FrederickTW: lol MinotaurMage: Well, the weather did filter down over here to Arizona. Now we're getting rained on quite a bit lazysod: charming a cleric? --laughs-- that's hard indeed- -- looks at rose with a teasing twinkle- FrederickTW: well, somehow I get people into talking about love all the time! SteveJaqvaar has sent me a whole page of advice already! FrederickTW: and now Sil! lazysod: -grins- hmm.. hardly ever talk to them .. what boards does that happen? FrederickTW: rosemaria, you are not too talkative MinotaurMage: Don't ask me. It's been a LONG time...(and probably even longer for the future) FrederickTW: well, it's called school FrederickTW: you go there every day FrederickTW: well, you people will probably be somewhat surprised to know my age FrederickTW: steve even though I was 41 MinotaurMage: I'd guess late 20s, but I'm probably wrong FrederickTW: and I have to say "exacly the opposite! I am 14!" FrederickTW: but don't think any stereotypical teenagers! FrederickTW: I am a good fellow FrederickTW: =) MinotaurMage: Ah. I know there were other young members at the Community rosemaria: sorry, I've got three comversations going FrederickTW: yes, yes.... well I hope nobody goes agist on me FrederickTW: ageism FrederickTW: rasism, sexism, ageism are all bad FrederickTW: evil FrederickTW: ok rosemaria: *shakes her head* 'course not.
