Thanks, Thermo! The first few years were the hardest. Then it was just about perseverance! Speaking of which, it's time to prep for my little toybox of a class.

This is quite accurate, actually. doy and I were the two people working on it, and our efforts probably summed to be about six months apiece, stretched out over a longer period due to laziness, distractions, other jobs, and school. The price tag at the end should put the rest of you to shame, but f...

That was not at all the reason for my reply, it was to convey the meaning of the post itself, nothing more. Well, either way, we don't pay a dime for Aleph One, and we should be happy for what we have. And while I'm at it, where's that lua script that will write my thesis for me while I play? Slack...

I suppose his asking could lead to someone who is bored but capable picking up the flag and running with it. This isn't very likely, c...

Oh man, I just want to thank all of you for this thread. Here I was, sitting around depressed, thinking about how much work I needed to get done today, and about how I'm just months away from almost certain unemployment. Frankly, I was feeling sorry for myself and in need of a great big boost. Dugit...

Demonstrably you must have been the special child. By the way, you aren't hiding your age in your writing style. At least Envy and Jamacan don't pretend to be more mature in their writing.

Similarly, but way less often, it would be possible an entire person was located at the other side of a steel wall. Either way, I shouldn't be doing this discussion because I fo...

Thanks for the encouragement! I'll certainly do what I can, and if in some reasonable time frame (a week or two) I don't feel I'm making any progress, I'll just post the original.

Is this pack still publicly available? I've seen a few people host it recently but it appears to be gone from S7 and I didn't see it on fileball. It's not publicly available at the moment.
