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nearly doubled her lists in "number of things" in my first attempt having not seen her's. I think this is significantly outdated now that she has completed The List mark 2.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.

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. =)

The next ONE at least, as it's cute too.

Now I want all my icons to have bunny ears in them...
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: November 17th, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
You Could do that.... but that'd be a little obsessive, methinks.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 17th, 2005 04:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just a bit.

In true nerdiness, when I did the yes/no/maybe checklist, I put my answers into a spreadsheet ;)

See, we played with formatting in Word. Lots of fun fonts and columns and stuff. Yeah. I used a text box.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 17th, 2005 04:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
This makse it easier to import and compar other similar lists. :)

First thing I did was decide on fonts for headers and body text. Then I started categorizing activities. BDSM got a little unweildy... so broke it into subsections and further divided.

Eh. I have very little fine motor coordination. Though with my tablet PC I can eventually make something nice, it just takes a long time.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: November 17th, 2005 05:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
On a completely different note, there is no WIN or LOSE at this game... just, "Oh yeah!! I forgot THAT! How could I forget that?"

*hug*
abmann From: abmann Date: November 17th, 2005 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm aware.
Tell me that if I looked at you the way you looked at me when I finally let you see my list you'd have thought it WASN'T getting a little competitive. You gave me that playful "ima-get-you" look. :)
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: November 17th, 2005 06:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Did I? hmm...Maybe I wasn't thinking about the list....
abmann From: abmann Date: November 17th, 2005 06:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
WELL NEVER KNOW NOW, WILL WE??
You should act on these sorts of things so you have experimental evidence to support your claims.

You know... for science.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: November 17th, 2005 06:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have sev's keys.

I couldn't very well jump you in the middle of Barrique's, now could I?

And when we got home, there was the annoyance thing with the time and the cooking and the other things... You know. Not very mood inducing.

She's wrong, everything is a competition, and the point of life is to win.

Also, make sure you incorproate the ferrit's last purity test, since that's several hundred items.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 17th, 2005 06:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
I always win at life so it isn't really competition.
I think you've said as much. :)
