Code has no emotion, code can only be experienced one way, a way that is devoid of emotion. It is, afterall, a senselessly repeating set of functions. But what of our appreciation for Her Lady? Is that not a senselessly repeating compulsion? No, it is not. Though it can be repeated, each time is a unique emotional experience in itself. It is an everchanging sensation that defies words or Earthly explanation.

Gerakken,

Will you MARRY ME?

        
#127  by Veteran TheQuack - 6/8/2003 12:36:14 PM

@Blue Ocean: ah, but I could just get this code to run on a robot. It won't stop after 20 times, and cheap party hats are plentiful. Meanwhile, I can sidle in, ask CariElf what she thinks of my adorable little bot, and take it from there...


@Gerakken: Aye, code has no emotion, but it can provoke emotions in humans, both for its creator and its user ("f'n work already you piece of"). Admittedly, love and passion are rare reactions (lol), but maybe that just means we aren't good enough coders. And women are always saying they want men to open up and be honest - you can't be much more revealing than sharing some code that represents you (if only vaguely), can you? Even if imperfect, it could give insight that roses or a box of chocolates really lack. (In theory, of course, I've never tried it obviously . Okay, I'll stop talking trash now...)


Now, as for the smilie code, I looked up a few smilies
from sencho's smilie vault (best thing i ever found on the moo3 forum). First, something to use when party hats run out:

Second, a decent final outcome:

http://members.cox.net/kancho3/Smilies_Happy/inlove.gif Link

But, you know what? While looking through all those smilies, I suddenly found one that said what this club was all about. It's not about doing stunts to impress anyone, or even about the music. Everything here serves one purpose, and one purpose only:

"ah, but I could just get this code to run on a robot. It won't stop after 20 times, and cheap party hats are plentiful. Meanwhile, I can sidle in, ask CariElf what she thinks of my adorable little bot, and take it from there..."

Do you not recall that CariElf claimed that she didn't like evil? That she preferred healers in RPGs? That she never plays the bad side? Do you think your VIOLENCE tactics are going to IMPRESS her?

Honestly, I had hoped, as a fan, you would have a higher opinion of her. But no, you're just a brainless jerk like most people in the world, thinking that beating up on people will help your cause with a girl. And you think she's one of those sleazy chicks that dumb guys pick up in bars. *shakes his head* This kind of outrage should not be allowed in the club.

Plus, as a sensor drone VP, I'll be able to detect you coming miles away, and me and CariElf will be long gone by the time you arrive. Your pathetic robot may be fast, but he will not be able to catch me in my silver '98 CAMRY!

EDITED to say: Oh, and as a little tip, I'm a big guy, and I'm afraid if your robot attacked me, I would have to open up a can on its skinny little body.

I know we all love the oldies (or, for some of us, the not so oldies), and I thank D.J. MM77 for bringing them to us. He has such good taste! However, most of those were before my time, and I can only play the stuff I know.

So, without any further ado, let me bring you the pop-rock sound of Nine Days, with Absolutely (The Story of a Girl).

". . . Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles . . .

. . . This is the story of a girl
Whose pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles."

In my heart I hope that I'm the one who makes you smile, CariElf, and I'm sure that hope resonates in the souls of all the poor saps, just like me, lost in the wonder of you! I'm pulling out all the stops tonight, so keep it tuned here to W.C.a.r.i.E.l.f. 104.6a, and let's rock the night away . . .

Can't check in here as much as I'd like, but this thread rocks... To infinity and beyond, CariElf! Thanks for the incredible work you do!

And, actually, ALL the blokes at Stardock! You guys rock!

Bobo say him like CarElf too but him thinking this becoming like teenage chatting room. Bobo say fine if all good fun but him not like to see any people get broken heart when CariElf not say her undying love for allkinds boys with hopeful thinking.
Bobo learn this hard way many years ago when him play chatting and find out not only girl not like him even after all Bobo clever words (him not say him ape) but Bobo find out girl not girl.
Bobo go now since not any him business, but him thinking CariElf responds to questions on game not teenage fanclub. Now allkinds people get mad at Bobo.

"Honestly, I had hoped, as a fan, you would have a higher opinion of her. But no, you're just a brainless jerk like most people in the world, thinking that beating up on people will help your cause with a girl."

You don't get it - the robot can do lots of other stuff, like pick flowers, sing songs, and play the piano. Of course, it can do some not-no-nice stuff - and clerics have maces too as I recall. But it's only meant as a technology demonstration. And it's slapstick! It's a Larry-Curly-Mobot! Would you rip those guys apart if they poked you in the eye?


"And you think she's one of those sleazy chicks that dumb guys pick up in bars. *shakes his head* This kind of outrage should not be allowed in the club."

Oh, here we go... where exactly did I say that? Don't put words in my mouth! Implying that a VP of her fan club doesn't hold her in the highest regard - why, that's like saying the president of a veterans' association never served in the armed forces! THAT's the kind of slander that shouldn't be allowed.



Now, let us all give thanks respectfully.

(quack closes his eyes for a moment of silence, in thanks to all those who have made this game what it is today, even the ones who don't have fan clubs yet )

edit: duck not mad at bobo. bobo good. bobo honest. bobo bring reality back here. this is all joke for duck, silly way to waste time. duck not take seriously. duck still hopes girl is girl but

Ahhh the words of wisdom from GalCiv's favorite ape

                  
#136  by Veteran Gerakken - 6/9/2003 3:14:58 AM

If indeed this loving thread is full of misguided fanboys that are seeking Her Lady's affection in personal ways, then these are misguided men. To fully understand the Lady of Honor's grace requires unconditional appreciation. There can be no desire for Her to even acknowledge any individual fan's admiration in this fan club. Any fighting we have amongst ourselves over who the Lady favors is fruitless, for the honor is Hers to decide who to grace with her favor. Our words, no matter how crudely or well crafted, how coded or signaled, are like echoes cast upon a pond. We see only our own reflections and vainly hope for an answer that is unlikely to come.

-----You are Cordialy Invited to the coutmarshal of----

--------------SCOUT VICE PRESIDENT BOBO----------------

It sadings my HEART that YOU and many other people don't read ALL of the posts.

It would be very HARD to understand this fan/chat club if you don't.

To ASSUME in THIS fan/chat club will only leave you lost or bitter.

READ ALL RULES.

READ ALL POSTS.

SCOUT VICE PRESIDENT BOBO; DEMOTED to NONFAN.

Good Heavens MM77. A demotion of Bobo to NONFAN! Now that is as shocking as it gets in the Galciv community. Poor Bobo (and yet it WAS deserved).

And check out the Viscountess's post in the Random Title Generator thread.

                      
#139  by Veteran wampyre - 6/9/2003 10:07:19 AM

Bobo not sad. Bobo not member of fanclub. HIm just GalCiv player. Also Bobo have life and sometimes not read every post in universe. Him read enough to know what Bobo know. Is teenage chatting room. Bobo not do that anynore. Not since him little ape.
That all ok. Bobo had him sayback. Bobo not sad. Bobo not bitter. Bobo have to care to be sad or bitter. Bobo not care. Him still happy ape.
Bobo sorry him make allkinds people underwears in bunch. Him not realize makebelieve taken so serious. Bobo say, this him apology. Bobo still like allkinds people on Gal Civ board. Peoples accept apology or sayback more Bobobash things. That life.
Bobo play game now.

      
#140  by Veteran wampyre - 6/9/2003 10:11:06 AM

Bobo forgot. Him also say Theduck have healthy attitude. Bobo appreciate Duck not bashing Bobo. Duck say him know just fun. That ok. Bobo have fun too. Sometimes play games, sometimes play on tire swing in cellar, sometimes write posts on wampyre's computer when him looking. Gerakken write pretty words. Him good. Bobo like pretty words. Bobo think, peoples who write pretty words much smart.Can make saybacks Bobo like to read. Bobo be much smart one day.

#141  by Veteran TheQuack - 6/9/2003 11:57:41 AM

You don't use pretty words, but you still explain things plainly, without any bs. You should get a job as the tutorial assistant in GalCiv - like the popups in Office, but actually useful. "Bobo say taxes make people sad. Less taxes mean more happy campers."

Hey, we could start a fan club for you - with forceinfinity, me, and my pet duck, that's three already!

Here you go, you can have a free Larry-Curly-Mobot too! Just don't give him any party hats.

                    
#142  by Veteran wampyre - 6/9/2003 1:44:09 PM

Bobo say many thanks to TheQuack. Him liking idea of working for GalCiv, making tutorial advice. But Bobo not want to take job from Frogboy. Frogboy good. Him make nice game. Bobo say him keep job.
Bobo also say thanks for wanting fanclub but that ok to not have. Bobo appreciate when peoples say him explain without using pretty words. Bobo know him words not pretty. Bobo also know him words sometimes need saying. How other peoples like Bobo words not for Bobo to worry on. Some like, some not like. All ok. Bobo still like all peoples anyway.
Bobo thank The Quack for stooges toy but him say wampyre not allow Bobo more toys. Cellar already full. But thought is nice.
Bobo swing now.

CariElf: Hope you're enjoying the adolation of your fanbase, you deserve it. My question is, since you haven't posted any games to the metaverse, are you too busy working on your masterpiece to enjoy it, too busy enjoying the gushing praise, or just not bothering to submit the games?

Well, there are various reasons, but the main one is that I am kept very busy working on Gal Civ, and I tend to test more than really playing, using cheat keys that are only available to the developers to help me reproduce bugs or test new features. I don't submit games that I've used cheat keys in because that's not fair.   



        
#144  by Citizen Keith LaMothe - 6/9/2003 4:40:41 PM

Bobo, as usual, speak wisdom. Me only here to let CariElf know she's appreciated, not to do silly thing like seek affection or fight over her.

So, once again: Thank you for everything, Cari (and Brad and the rest of the team). Galciv is a great game and I'm thoroughly impressed with your efforts to make it even better, and you're the best tech support I've ever known

(btw, Me think help text would help more if Bobo wrote it, but maybe Bobo too busy. No bad, help text good already.)

            
#145  by Citizen Alakh R Dowd - 6/9/2003 5:13:03 PM

Geeks, meet girl..
Girl, meet geeks..

Blonde Wood Elf, meet snot-nosed Ogre..
Snot-nosed Ogre, meed Blonde Wood Elf..

Which is worst? This thread or an Ogre doing their jiggle dance trying to impress the Blonde Wood Elf trying to kite and hold in laughter at the same time?


                
#146  by Citizen Keith LaMothe - 6/9/2003 5:28:21 PM

I'd say the Ogre would be worse, as this thread at least has some good purpose... the Ogre would probably just get a number of arrows in it.

            
#147  by Veteran wampyre - 6/9/2003 6:28:50 PM

Bobo say some things then go.
Say number one: Bobo sorry him call TheQuack wrong name. Bobo have big head and big brain but sometime brain actlike little brain.
Say Number two: Bobo understand Keith just appreciating CariElf for allkinds help her give and for helping make great GalCiv.
Say number three: Bobo hope CariElf not read Bobo posts and get mad at Bobo. wampyre let Bobo watch Lord of Rings DVD and Bobo know when elf get made, not good for peoples making elf angry.Bobo not want CariElf to shoot him full pointy arrows.
Say number four: Bobo sorry him make fun of thread.
Say number five: Bobo sorry him not mention him like forecinfinity for being nice to Bobo.
Say number six....oh. wampyre come home. Bobo need get off computer quick. Bobo talk later.
Bye bye.

      
#148  by Citizen Blue Ocean - 6/9/2003 6:33:02 PM

I normally agree with most of what Bobo says. However, in this case, I'm going to have to disagree. I think that you should know that the people here, for the most part, are not completely serious (me, for instance; I'd like to think that CariElf thinks something I say is funny, but I don't care that much, and I certainly don't -really- want her to send me any vampires or whatever else; it's a joke). But it's a joke that you pretend is reality, because it would lose its effectiveness otherwise. It annoys me that I have to step out of character to tell you that what you said was out of line. The people in this thread are just having fun, and you, however much I normally like you, are threatening to ruin it.

Same goes for the people who are talking about geeks. For all we know, you are one too, and for all you know, I'm a hugely built guy with a normal social life, tons of friends, no problem with women, etc. (i.e. a non-geek) who just posts in these forums because I think it's fun. It's kind of ironic that the people who post here call others geeks a) with no sense of feeling that people might just be having fun, and b) in a forum where they are also stereotypical "geeks," just by being there (especially when they're talking about wood elves and ogres). Get with the program, there's no elitism here, no high school cliques, no name calling, so please get down off your high horse and join the fun instead of hurling insults from afar.

EDITED to say: Bobo's apologized, so ignore everything in the first paragraph. However, the second paragraph still applies.

Forgive me, mine was also just meant as a joke in good fun. I know you folks are just jesting, and from where I sit, I dont even consider "geek" an insult. If nothing else, the thread is an interesting read. Forgive the bad joke, and missunderstanding.
