Hey, her last restraining order expired so technically it's legal.

Mr. Toffee from Candy Crush because he knows all the houses that give away chocolate bars.  Either him or Garrett from Thief because he knows which kids have chocolate bars in their bag.  Honorable mention to Lilith because I would love to follow her in third person and wouldn't care where all the chocolate bars are.

The original I believe.



#446902 What games are people playing these days!?

Posted by the Battle Cat on Yesterday, 02:24 PM in General

Been playing Dead Island co-op with Macdude and his friend Nate.  It's a good enough zombie slugfest but it turned out to be way too buggy to provide an evening without major interruptions.  After a number of Saturday nights beating our heads against it, we decided to try another game next week.  It's a shame because it could have been a decent game.  I like the skill tree for my bludgeon class character, and there are plenty of bludgeons lying around begging to father high velocity blood splatter, but the disconnections, restarts, other serious problems of the code, and lackluster missions take much of the fun away.

OK, I've solved this problem by using the slingshot maneuver around the sun to go back in time and assassinating the first admin before he could pen the bylaws.  Ironically this act launched the reality arc where I become admin.  Now it's OK to change your title to "Honorary Special Snowflake".  Thank you and you are welcome.



#446872 Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™ – Announcement trailer

Posted by the Battle Cat on 17 October 2017 - 09:39 AM in Mac Action & Shooters

Feral knows that it's best for all concerned to wait to announce a release until it's a done deal.  They do it just right too using their radar, teasing their audience with what-could-it-bes, and by the time it is really ready to announce, the game title has been guessed by engaged gamers.  If a deal falls through the mystery game disappears from the radar.  It's a brilliant strategy.

I mean I am the honorary special snowflake (speaking of when do i get that title?)

According to Forum bylaws you need to assassinate Dirty Harry if you want that snowflake title.  Try wearing a "make America great again" hat and calling slurm (Harry's pronoun for "him") by the wrong pronoun and see if sporks (Harry's pronoun for "his") head explodes.  Though I suppose "Honorary Special Snowflake" is different enough... Damnit Jim, I'm a mass murdering mouser not a lawyer.

Good thing I'm a cat and not a human.  I watched the entire thing.  Now if you will excuse me, I'm just going to lick this barf back up while it is still warm.  Any cat will tell you that tuna is a terrible thing to waste.

He does have a point there kids.  It's pretty much like a massively fat guy sitting in a row of chairs,  his chair is whatever acreage his butt says it is.  His logic is quite infallible in this matter.

Can I report him Father Battle Cat?

He is already reported by another.  It's satire folks, he is probably as irritating to Microsoft fanboys as he is to Apple fanboys.  But it's good satire if you can see past the love of your platform of choice, I can't be the only guy to appreciate it.  Can I?

Don't get him started Atticus, he'll start chanting "developers" like Vikings chanting "spam"  In fact you can do a mash-up of "developers" and "spam", just sing "Spammity spammmmm spammity spammmmm spammity spammmmm spammity spammmmm" while you watch the developers vid.

Whose alternate account is Steve Ballmer? It's gotta be tBC or something.

It's not me.  The admin console shows he is the only member with that IP.  Doesn't rule out somebody else's alternate account though.

How do I include a pict in mah post?

Can I upload directly from my Mac, or must I upload the image to a photo sharing site and insert the URL?

thanks!  :)

In order to upload directly from your Mac, you need to click on the "More Reply Options" just under the reply text window on the right.  From there you will see the "Attach Files" section just under the text window.  Use it to choose the image file you  want to use, then attach it to your post.  Finally click the "Add to Post" link in the blue box just under the text box.  The image will appear in your text where your mouse has last clicked.  Images in your post will not be full sized until someone clicks on it.  tech service.jpg

The last I saw you, and this is to the best of my recall, some internet men were sent to this forum to take you back to wherever it was you had apparently escaped from.  It was all very mysterious.  

Actually, now that I've been thinking about this for awhile it wasn't Steve Ballmer, it was the guy who had the Wilford Brimley avatar.  Sorry for the confusion.

Given the firmware checks in place in High Sierra, I'm fully expecting the boot chain to get secured requiring everything in the chain to be signed by Apple at some point in the future.

Hey Battle Cat,

Can you change his avatar to Dr. Evil ?  :w00t:

That'd be awesome!

Yeah that would be appropriate and funny, but I don't want to mess with a member like that.  That is the sort of member abuse I decided long ago to abandon.  Personally, I preferred his previous avatar showing Steve Balmer apparently holding a huge invisible dong up to his mouth.

This guy can't be real. This is some elaborate sarcasm or satire or something right?

Yes, yes, yes, or yes.  His blog leaves no doubt about this.  I recommend you read it.  I used to read it the last time he was here then I lost track of it till now.  This is good stuff, great fun.
