I have a feeling that my Thread-killing campaign has new competition.....

And Mel, why are the Asian characters coming up as squares?

^Because you haven't installed a pack that lets you see them..

I'm sad..

I've downloaded the Uru live visitors trial, because I wanted to test the game, but after installing and updating it, it doesn't seem to be one..

And I'm not receiving my validation e-mail from the Uru Live support, so I can't ask for help either..

For me they're coming up as three parallel vertical lines each.

No, you don't. Avatar changing is overrated. (But I'm probably posting this too late. I don't recognize the one you've got, so you've probably already changed.)

Get a Mac. Then you'll be able to see all those characters you can't understand without needing to do anything special about it. It just works.

Jaz and Giligan: In Firefox, if you go to View > Character Encoding (it'll be similar on IE), you can see more options. Hopefully that works because the characters look cool.

Thanks, but I'm currently using Opera. But I'll remember it for once I go back to Firefox.

Lawl!

In other news, I don't have Firefox. I don't even know what it is, actually, although a five-minute google search could tell me. What works for whatever I've got? (MSN)

Well, I did the jigsaw version of this picture of a flamingo that's made up of lots of tiny photos once, I have a jigsaw in a frame on the wall that is 49 pictures (7 x 7 square) of a leprechaun doing a jigsaw of a pot of gold (Spiralling in from the top left to the center his expression changes from frown to smile and a piece gets added to the puzzle in each picture. Oh and it's double-sided with the same picture on the other side), I have a puzzle picturing pure black and pure white cats (lots of them) on a pink marble staircase that has no conventional edge pieces (the edge pieces look like the internal pieces) and five extra pieces from the same picture that don't belong in the final puzzle and my wife bought me a jigsaw that was an aerial photo centred on our house for Christmas (a lot of pieces with house rooves on.)

So I think I''d have to answer yes to that one.

I like my jigsaws to be motor powered. Which is rather incredible, as gay men and powertools aren't really a combination you see often.

I therefore conclude that you are actually not a gay man, but a butch dyke.

Sawzall for teh win!

By the way, does anyone know the name or designation of the new gaming machines that actually show the screen on a headset? I've seen the said devices on scientific specials, but I don't know what one would call them.

Are you suggesting most of us prefer to do things by hand?

  1. Too much
  2. Not enough
  3. About right
  4. To the pure mind, all things are pure. To the impure mind, all things are impure.
So we've got a vote for opton 1. I'm an option 3 myself. I don't mind a bit of innuendo but when all posts become innuendo it's just boring and unfunny.
