Praefectus Castrorum

Praefectus Castrorum (8/14)



  1. I love how you jump around the whole world: Brilliant writing! I wonder if "she" will write back.
  2. Haha, that's great. Keep it going with his "secretary".
  3. I love the way this site spoofs some of those alarmist, pseudo-scientific websites It's classic. Did you see this? Some officials in CA almost fell for it: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4534017/
  4. Well, I suppose I didn't quite mean it in an 'Elvish' sort of way (immortality), but maybe more like "never having to sleep".
  5. I think what he means is that he'd like to have a great family in the future, as in his own family. Hmm... I'd LIKE to post this: 1. Unlimited time 2. Unlimited resources 3. To never lose the ability to dream ... but I think Oyvind wants more "practical" wishes. So, I'll say: 1. Everything I need to create films (equipment, crew, etc.) 2. To pioneer a space-mining operation (metals/organics from (NEO?) asteroids) 3. To become independently wealthy
  6. Wikipedia has a page about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spqr
  7. I don't shop for much, except computer/geeky things... so it'd be NewEgg and Amazon for me!
  8. 24 is my favorite show as well. (Woot, 2 hour finale next Monday! ) Other than that, I like watching Nova (science documentary show), and recently American Inventor (probably the only "reality" show I'll watch). I've been contemplating getting into Lost, but have managed to hold out so far. When I first saw the promos when the show was just getting started, I thought it looked kind of lame... then I saw something about the conspiracy on the island and the "Dharma Initiative" and it sounded a *bit* more interesting. (actually, my first thought was "Wow, that sounds like Myst") We recently got a DVR (ReplayTV 5080, upgraded it to a 200GB hard drive), so we don't have to reschedule our entire day around 24. (yes, we got a DVR partially because of one show) It's turned out to be immensely helpful, even though I don't watch a whole lot of TV. The sweetest feature is being able to transfer shows between other people with the same DVR (which is why I got an older model off eBay; they canceled that feature later). There's a whole site set up for show requests and whatnot. Pretty fun to play with According to this page, #22 is the final episode of season 1.
  9. That's the Apple Photo Booth application, isn't it? I've played around with a demo of that at a local computer store; it's a downright hilarious program. I'll have to see if I can find the images (I e-mailed them to myself from the store).
  10. Howdy! The trout has quite a history among the Last Alliance developers (a sister project of 0 A.D.). Glad you registered and posted an introduction!
  11. Woohoo! That will be great to see. I recently saw an episode of Nova covering the previous Grand Challenge. Great stuff!
  12. One reason I *still* love the original Age of Empires is that it includes those civs. There hasn't been a game since AoE that has quite matched the same feel with those ancient civs. Woot! Great idea; I'm with you!
  13. That's probably because it's hotlinked from another site (like http://somesite.com/someimage.jpg). It's considered impolite to do this, and some sites ban it (because it sucks up extra bandwidth) and put up notices like yours. The polite thing to do is to download the image and put it up on a free webhost or your own web server (some/most ISPs give you a couple of MB of free hosting space) and point your avatar there instead.
  14. You were close... it's "schedules" I haven't seen Black Op around recently, he's another big part of the "old days". I think Matt (chichigrande?) came by not too long ago to say "hey".
