Grrr... Why does the refreshing of the main forum page take so long???

And it's very disappointing when the only thing you get afterwards is Hack! or Slash! -_-

If someone can tell me how to tweak the page code so that you don't have to reload the page ni order to click on the bar again, I don't mind making that change.

IIRC, the bar used to behave that way. I think it was changed to act the way it currently does because when it used to spit out goodies, some forumites wrote scripts to keep slamming it. (It would be nice to know how many messages we're looking for, however.)

That's correct. I'm not the guy who writes the web code, though. Matt designs and writes all of that good stuff. (iirc, there are 13 messages.)

Man, I'm out of the loop. Didn't know of this change until now...

I've turned off the anti-clickspamming feature. Reloading the page is not necessary now.

Wait - that's a stalwart singing, and he survives it? :(

(And there I thought the stalwarts were the red shirts of the Eighth...)

Going by the bar dialogs, I'm about 87% sure that the eponymous Tendry is a Stalwart... (I love "I'm a Stalwart and I'm still alive", though!)

Ah, but going by past iterations of Watch The Bar, at around this percentage the increment size will start to decrease until we're happy to see 0.2%. Then we'll go months without an increase at all. Then we'll get an April Fool's Day release. This is in accordance with the ninety-ninety rule of software engineering: the first 90% of the code accounts for the first 90% of the development time, and the remaining 10% of the code accounts for the other 90% of the development time.

Could be...I hope not. Still, the recent increases have been unrelated to coding -- it's thanks to voice acting getting done. (Also, that I haven't had to go to work this week because I'm in between day jobs.)

We've broken the 90% barrier! :w00t (I forget - has this ever happened before? I'm pretty sure JtRH was released below 90%, but I forget about TCB...)

Today, I finished preparing the demo version and wrote the demo and full installer scripts. (Looks like this game will be about as large on disk as TCB.) Next is probably to get some web pages made up.
