That question doesn't actually mean anything, so I can't answer it.

One of my friends showed me this simple scripting language (autoit) that he was using for making bots for an MMO we play on. I decided I'd have a crack at it. My mum used to play far too much spider solitaire on my computer, so I wrote a script to pop-up a window that was a message from the computer...

Depends how purist you're being, the original philosophy behind lego was to give a kid the means to build his own toys. Bionicle is the same kind of thing; all the pieces can be taken apart and put back into loads of different shapes, and they're specialized for cool robot-fighter guys. They just ha...

Forum games can be bunchloads of fun, but they get sameish sometimes, always something like "say X about the poster above you" or that damn word association that keeps coming up.

Wahey, minority again. Like it's been said before, I'm vegetarian for moral reasons; I oppose factory farming and the abominable conditions that battery farmed animals are kept in. That being said, I wouldn't mind eating free-range meat, but I'm still vegetarian more for convenience's sake; I can't ...

I got lots of Bionicle, used to be obsessed with them! I have all six of the original Toa, three of the Bohrok (been ages, I can't actually remember the real name), a Lewa Nuva (the cool ones with metal stuff on them), a set that you can build two scorpion things with and one which is a boxing suit ...

It's actually an interesting idea, but like you said the electromagnetic fields could cause interference with the other equipment. I'm pretty sure you can reinforce casings (for the central uber-computer) to withstand hard fields, but as long as you can localize the fields only around the area you'r...

Oh. Yeah. Well. Kit is wrong, Verator is close. I'll give half an internet to Verator. It was actually asking out a girl. It made things largely awkward, but I don't really regret it, because it's something I needed to do if you follow what I'm saying. I was confused by Kit, as he wrote @TC (My abb...

I know exactly what you mean, I really hate having my actions misinterpreted, even if the misinterpretation is positive. I think the most common example is when I'm walking about (usually to and from school), I'm on my own and always deep in thought. i naturally squint, so people think I'm angry/hat...

I don't agree with the 'no regrets' thing. Regret is what keeps us from screwing up again. So, have regrets, and don't be afraid of having them, but don't dwell on them. If you dwell on them, you'll be too afraid to make decisions that you might regret in the future. Perhaps a better idea then &quo...

My writer's block has gone and I've managed to write two pages of this young adult-sci-fi stuff I've been working on, all of which I'm dreadfully happy with.

Also, Heroes is on tonight, episode 4. Win.

I always use that as an example of the vastness and anality (I think I just invented a word) of the Great and Powerful Wikipedia.

I really liked the first one Tank (Can I call you Tank? :P). The second one is great too, but I think the word 'popping' just doesn't fit well. Also, I think the alliteration in the last line is a bit excessive. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I think I can just about pin down the use of simple wo...
