"The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that's where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won't do if they don't know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight." (Eric, Terry Pratchett)

      Maybe I should get around to reading a Discworld novel or 2. I haven't read anything new in years.

  • Today I finished reading the last Discworld book. I really feel sad there will never be another one. RIP Terry Pratchett.

    So according to Stephen Hawking, we have to leave this planet in 100 years, so I was wondering if you would allow me to roam on your planet when that time comes. Are you fine with it?

      100 years? I seriously doubt that the planet will become incapable of supporting life within a mere 100 years... :/

      Humans will be extinct around the year 7200... I saw it in the history channel in a program about Nostradamus and if it's shown in the History channel it must be true, right?

  • One week with a bugged profile... Vanilla owes me a badge :)

      Bugged profile? In what way?
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      No posts are marked read unless I mark the entire forum read...
  • Is anybody else having problems with messages not being marked as read after reading a thread?

    • Buttercheese

      I had the opposite problem a few months ago, where it automatically marked threads as read that weren't read already.
    • Tresset
      Tresset
      Well, I have noticed a minor bug that has been around for a long time:

      If you view a thread that has no comments (i.e. it is just the OP), and someone subsequently comments on the thread, it will appear as though you have not viewed the thread at all.
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Yay Vanilla!!!
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Now I have no idea which threads I'm participating actually have something unread to view :)
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Marked the entire forum read... let's see if this fixes the glitch...
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Not fixed but at least now I know when a thread actually has something new to read...
    • kaguana
      kaguana
      Vanilla is crazy, it don't want you to know that you read what you read and then it won't tell you how much you got left... vanilla should go to sleep maybe it need some reset a really really longggggggg one
    • mlnevese

      Looks like today it does not like inserting Youtube videos in posts as well..
    • mlnevese

      I just noticed something else... If I list the threads in the participated list they are not marked read... but they are marked read in the general discussions list... go figure...
    • kaguana

      All the "Participated" threads looks weird and the little symbol for new replies is gone. Hard to tell which threads have new replies now so have to click'em all like crazy.

      Vanilla is best used for ice cream. When chocolate cannot be found, of course.

      I agree chocolate ice cream is better then vanilla ;)
    • mlnevese
      mlnevese
      Give me one of each and I'll be satisfied. (Note to self... do not make this request in places where they have 50+ flavors available)
  • Just started to read The Shepherd's Crown. It's a strange feeling to know there'll never be another Discworld book... Maybe that's why I have been postponing reading it for so long...

      Anyway I agree. Some great posts that happened in the activity page will never get the recognition they deserve because we can't react to them.

  • All right.. I just have to ask this... how does Morte carries anything? He's just a floating skull... He can actually carry heavier stuff than my Nameless One...
    April 13
    • Shandyr
      Shandyr
      I actually do take that into account when I play. I only give him letters or small trinkets like rings to carry.
    • Buttercheese
      Buttercheese
      Better not to question the logic behind Morte.
      For everything else: http://ihateyourfriends.tumblr.com/post/140235182826
    • Tresset
      Tresset
      ^ I have just started playing and already this seems true. The game itself even says something along this line of logic about the proficiency of Morte's natural weapon.
    • mlnevese

      @Butterchese Nice link :) It's a shame I can't like your post...
