Looking to purchase

Wanted: One new brain.
Current one is old and refuses to learn new tricks.

Spent a nice long, luxurious evening at Barrique's next to the fire with lady_fox. We got into a little competition over who could make the most exhaustive Yes/Maybe/No list while we were hopped up in caffeine and chai. I think I surprised her a bit with some of the things on my maybe list, which I must admit that some of it suprised me. I was amused that our No lists were nearly identicle.

Now, I think Fox is winning our little game but i haven't checked yet. At fist I nearly doubled her lists in "number of things" in my first attempt having not seen her's. I think this is significantly outdated now that she has completed The List mark 2. I may inspect this tonight depending.

As to the silliness above, my brain is lame. Still trying to overcome the human condition and all. I don't think I'm succeeding.
I need icons from this: Sinfest. NEED
You know, I never even considered that some peope might assume I was a furry given many of my icons and occasional blogging ears entries..

Civilization IV Patch in Final Testing
posted by Thunderfall at 11-16-2005 17:01 | comments: 8
There is a note from Firaxis on the Official Civilization IV site regarding the Civ4 patch. Here is the full message:

Hello everyone!

I've heard from many of you via the Firaxis website Contact Us form (many thanks for all the dxdiag files and savegames) and wanted to say thanks for all the feedback and detailed bug reports that were sent up.

I just wanted to let everyone know that as of Monday afternoon, the patch was sent to 2K for final testing, so barring any problems in QA, we will be releasing it shortly.

Some of the highlights include multiple AI improvements and tweaks, worker behavior tweaks, MANY game play improvements (ex Animal Husbandry reveals horses), promotion tweaks, a softer pillage sound (requested by many, many people), fixed diplomatic exploits (gold for gold, peace treaty exploit), multiplayer tweaks (Hot seat, Lobby, etc.), memory, caching and performance improvements, etc. There were also a number of video card specific fixes.

To those of you having problems, thanks for your patience. Our guys were working around the clock with your detailed feedback to produce this patch. For those of you having no problems, it's only going to get better. =)
