Re: 1110:"Click and Drag"

Wow. Favourite comic so far. It reminds me of life really, and how fragile it is. Don't know why.

Re: Melbourne meet-up?

Maybe we should just pick a date, then find someone who has a good space for it? Anytime significant enough in our community? Valentines day? :P

Re: Intent does(n't) matter

Earlier in this thread there was a theme about recognizing that you offended and apologizing. I think the poker example is a good example where there was no feed back as to why it was offensive and the person was unable to obtain a name, would this be the same if their .intent. to apologize to the p...

Re: Underrated games

The Strongholds. It was everything I wanted on RTS. Previously I thought that Empire Earth was good, boy was I wrong. Now I can't touch my library of RTSes any more.

Re: "Creepy" Discussion

It's actually starting to sound like you are collectively happy with the situation in the comic, as it's one less potentially obnoxious person out there.

Re: What is your favourite book?

I haven't read too much fiction, and when I do it's usually for some association.. So, my favorites would be from a limited collection.. However The Brothers War, is mine so far.

In terms of nonfiction, G.E.B, The Logic of Life, and Modern Heuristics.
