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.'"

    No idea how well you meet the Minimum or Recommended Specs, but Dark Souls 2 is a much better PC game this time round than the original. I've heard that some people with lower ends specs have been getting better performance from Dark Souls 2 than they got from the original Dark Souls too.

    @EoJ
    Ya, ya. So nice, so smooth! According to Steam I have clocked roughly 47 hours on Dark Souls 2 already, and have no intention of stopping just yet. It is satisfyingly rewarding overcoming each and every challenge thrown-up along the way, if a bit patience testing at times if you dies loads.

    Been engaging in much Jolly Cooperation in all the different areas helping out those in need. Faced down a few invaders as well and taken a few names in honourable duels. Still working my way towards the second half of the game regardless, haha.

    I should be well prepared for when it arrives however.

    After 47 hours, you're still on the first half of the game?

    Yeah I've heard it's pretty badly optimised (DS1). That said, most of my PC is from 2009 and the graphics card is from 2010 so it's a bit long in the tooth now - good machine for the time but I'm really starting to notice that it isn't cutting it anymore.

    That said, DS2 is on PS3 so rather than gamble on it running properly on my PC, I'd rather just get it on that.

    At least a third of that time has probably been 'Sunbro' co-op, for thy cannot resist helping a brother in need; also each successful co-op session means I can eventually ascend up ranks in the covenant for sweet loot. Though Dark Souls 2 is also more sizeable than the original Dark Souls, so naturally it also takes longer to complete for the average person; speedrunners exempt 'cause speedrunners gonna be speedrunners.

    Read an interesting blog post about programming the other day. Hopefully the aspiring programmers on the forum don't go this crazy (unless you already are and I just haven't noticed).

    I've already seen it, but honestly I don't have the attention span to read. And I've only reached a small degree of this crazy through group projects in class("The curly braces get their own line!").

    People who quibble about where braces should or shouldn't go are the worst. Just go with the majority opinion it's like the least important thing.

    fyi braces on their own line unless you're writing js obv obv

    Edit: oh also on that piece - it's comically written and mostly true, but frankly I don't think that as a job it's more or less stressful than any other job, and in terms of hours worked the average programming job almost certainly clocks in at a pr reasonable number. I know that I work see hours than any of my teacher friends, and generally less (and way more sociable!) hours than my friends who have jobs involving physical labour. Plus I get paid more.

    In short, while the points raised are valid I can't help think that since he felt compelled to write that article he must be a whiny douche.

    As someone who's had to dabble in programming for the past several years, I'd be inclined to agree with you Jax. Although it seems to me that the hyperbole of it all is just part of the humor (which is probably the point of the post).

    Finally got a country to not dissolve or go to the pits in Victoria! Playing as Russia in the 1836 or whatever start it is, went hands off on the economy as I figure that's pretty much the only way you can do RGO based economy, especially at the start. It's now like 1863? I have Sweden, Persia, Denmark and Serbia in my sphere. I initially played to like 1874, but I was overly ambitious and went to war with the Ottomans two or three times, giving Serbia more territory as well as taking Cyprus with the aid of Prussia, which was fantastic. Prussia was still around, but after I accumulated 30 badboy points, all my allies deserted me, then Austria invaded. I repelled them with some difficulty as this was immediately after I had just finished my war with the Ottomans for the third time, and then Prussia, my old ally, declared war as well. Then France did. Then Great Britain did. So basically what the Brits wanted to do in the Crimean War without the Turks or Crimea directly involved. It was tough and I was losing ground as essentially all of Europe was in Ukraine, Poland and my Baltic provinces. Reloaded to a previous save in 1862 and now I know better lol.

    Quick question, when should I industrialize? What are some tips for playing as Russia in the later game? How do I provoke rebels or whatever to make Russia the Soviet Union?

    I always go the State capitalism route and force industrialization. As for Soviet rebels, no idea I do know that if Jacobin rebels win they install a constitutional monarchy, so maybe they are a rebel type.

    How would you force industrialization? Bunch of cement factories everywhere and then do specialties when I get things going?

    I generally build factories that have inputs that export a lot. If you do follow my method DO NOT change to capitalism nor should you expect to keep a budget without jacking taxes up. It is an extraordinarily expensive process and it may not be the right way(my bubble burst after a jacobin revolt was successful, now my country is in a state of decline.)

    How was the concert AE?

    Also, I have a question to ask all of you. My family is getting a new computer; should I recommend that we go with Windows 8.1 or stick with Windows 7? I've used both (7 more than 8) although 8 was on a Surface, so I'm not as familiar with how well it operates on a non-touch system.
