The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

796. I also got monitor (gosh those things are expensive), keyboard, wireless, etc. My motherboard is non-clockable, but I saw a sale for the cpu that made it the same price as my original target so decided to go for that instead.

All told, may have spent about 950 quid financed partly by saving, partly by getting some money off some house rent, and partly Her Majesty's government giving me back the tax they owed me. Considering how long my laptop has manned, this should last a while!

And almost all of it has arrived, just need to pick up the graphics card from the depo and wait for dad to send me windows XP, so I can upgrade it to 7, so I can upgrade it to 10. Hopefully that works, I've not installed windows before and this seems like a baptism of fire.

is there some advantage to having a crazy upgrade route rather than just installing win 10?

I'm not sure why he's going from XP to 7, but if you install 7, you can get 10 for free.

Basically, my dad doesn't have a spare windows 7 lying around, but does have a spare XP and a 7 upgrade package. So yeah, I'm going to have fun >.>

Speaking of, I'm sure I saw a video where someone upgraded Windows from whatever the first version was through to Win 7, and it kinda just worked fine.

Behold, The Battle of Black Fire Pass! I have to say that I'm very impressed with how CA have captured the look of the Warhammer universe in game. The 'bestial' units are superb and have some amazing, and amusing ,animations and even though it looks different it still has the feeling of a Total War game. Looking forward to seeing the final product in action.

I'm not willing to give up my Windows 7 yet... Maybe in a couple of years.

@DU The scripted preview looks amazing, but I fear that much of the content shown may not be implemented correctly... In addition, I hope most of the bugs and issues are resolved this time... (the Rome 2 experience has left its mark on me ). Nevertheless, it is interesting to see how the Total War work with a fantasy setting!

@Alex: Well you have to bear in mind Alex that this is a pre-alpha build that we just saw. Considering that, the work they've done so far is very impressive and they admitted that they're still working on parts such as the collision and impetus of cavalry charges. CA is also taking their time with it (at least from what I can tell) as the launch date isn't till some time in 2016.

Also, if you've played Attila you can see that CA has taken community feedback to heart and streamlined features introduced in Rome 2 (such as politics) and restored fan favorites (the family tree). Hopefully they will extend this attention to constructive criticism and feedback to Total War: Warhammer as it's one of my personal favorite fantasy universes out there.

Greetings from the new computer! I did it without any incidences of fire or otherwise terrible things occurring.

Despite the graphics card not appearing (although I'm hopeful now I've canceled my order and gone to somewhere which has actually taken money from my bank account it should be relatively soon) it's rather pretty. Managed to go XP > 7 OK, and have reserved Windows 10 successfully.

A 24" monitor is significantly bigger than anything else I've had before. I'm kind of torn as to which game I should throw at it first- Rome 2, Shogun 2, or Skyrim?

By the gods, Pitt! Art thou also afflicted with that malady?

At thy tender age? Why, thou has yet to break past thy first century!

My own pate did not start thinning before I hit eleven hundred... Two centuries later there are a few places where sun hits scalp, so I can commiserate a bit.

Luckily what is lost atop the pate returns through ears, nose and beard.

So it is less that the hairs fall out, and more like they simply migrate to better neighborhoods.

So its been ages since I've been here. I was active around years 05-07 era. been on and off here and there. I was a bit active when Rome 2 was in the works.

It good to see this community has the same people here but some are coloured this time.

Good to know...it still feels like old times
