Yes, thanks.
I'm not a big user since most of it is beyond me, but I often look there for stuff I can use like Survival and some maps to play on.

I would have helped out too if I wasn't so broke.

Since I'm not a huge fan of the iOS-OSX melding nor the cartoonie iOS 7 theme while also hating Windows, my next computer will probably have Linux on it.

If you want to have fun like me, get an AMD 8350 CPU and a 990FX Mobo with 32gb of 1600mhz ram and install ESXi 5.5 on it. It allows PCIe pass-through so you can pipe your video card to your VM. I run OSX, WIndows and an Ubuntu distro this way and can have several people game on the same machine with no latency. It's also nice being able to run multiple OS's simultaneously. I should also mention this type of setup with an r9 290x GPU will run you close to $800.

FTFY, but also, no.

Object of which subject verbs the likes = object subject verbs the likes of, so that "sentence" translates as:

"Syntax you have never seen the likes of"

Which is not a sentence, just a complex noun phrase. It needs a verb and either a subject or an object (depending on which that noun phrase it taken to be) to be complete. What does that syntax (of which I have never seen the likes) do (and to what or whom), or what is done unto it (and by what or who)?

Anyone else find it ironic that after the intel transition, you can now easily run the Mac OS on generic PC hardware? If Apple had stayed on the PPC (or at least continued the tradition of storing some OS components inside the firmware) they wouldn't have this problem.

What exactly is the problem? People can run Apple OS on non-Apple hardware? I don't see how that's a problem exactly.

Well, for Apple that's a problem as it cuts into their hardware sales. So much so that they actually added a line to their EULA that requires you to have Apple branded hardware to run the OS.

I've also fixed the hourly recalculation of daily/weekly/monthly download counts, so Top 24 should work again:

http://simplici7y.com/?order=day

Unfortunately, grabbing all files for the mirror generated a lot of downloads, so those pages will take a while to return to normalcy. Right now it's saying every single file has been downloaded in the last month.

Having a solid static mirror is way more important than the top-month page having a long tail for a while.

On an unrelated note, I committed the changes I made to get S7 runnable:

You mean... my map pack hasn't been getting 50 downloads a week every week for the last 5 years?? Image

But seriously, great work!
