Another bump.

This
<------------------
is my desktop. I didn't believe the original knife-face image to be evil looking enough, so I changed the background and color of the eyes for a more demonic image. I might change some more graphics to make it look even cooler, but I don't have the patience or time to do that at the moment.

I have no idea if the image was copyrighted or not. If it was, I'll replace it with an older (and cooler) image of the DROD RPG.

The image isn't a high enough definition for me to stretch across the whole screen and still retain some goodness to it. If a person looks at it from far away, it looks a little better.

Again, apologies if the image turned out to be copyrighted.

I'm surprised that you found that image, given that you've only been on the forum 10 days. Or were you trying to sneak into caravel's stuff?

He's seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He's watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. He...never mind.

Egads - I valiantly hold off on cracking that joke, only to be beaten over the head with it shortly thereafter. :D

(Still one of my favourite movie endings - makes me teary-eyed every time I watch it... go figure.)

np: Tocotronic - Ja (10th Anniversary)

I was totally going to rag on Tahnan for not spelling "Tannhauser" correctly, because, well, he's Tahnan. Then I double-checked by Google, and apparently the script has it with one n.

Dammit.

Maybe you were surprised because, not unreasonably, you expected it to be spelled the same as the original Tannhauser?

BasiliskII and Sheepshaver? Nice.

Noticed you also use Flux... Have you noticed any weird issues with that and DROD?

I can't think of any DROD-specific flux issues, though when I awake the computer from sleep, flux is disabled for about a half a second. I have also found that Basilisk tends to lag in more recent version of OS X.
