    This classical music nerd hates you too, VH :P

    Hey, I love classical music as much as the next guy. Shit, I sing in a chorale and a chamber singers group.

    Just get off my case when I want to listen to a little Freezepop or something. :P

    I don't know what Freezepop is.

    I'm a pretty live-and-let-live kind of person. But what I won't stand for is someone trying to tell me some band is good when it's really not. Like Muse. You can enjoy Muse as much as you want, just don't try to tell me it has musical significance beyond any other pop/alt band out there. And don't try to tell me they were better before they "sold out," because no, they really weren't, they were just as bad before.

    Man Civ 1 is for looosers. Civ 2 was so much better in every way.

    You are allowed to have that opinion.

    I like to listen to them, though. And I'd rather not have to defend my opinion on music, particularly when I never meant to engage in a musical discussion in the first place.

    Civ 1 was hilarious. The battles were all decided by rolling attack vs. defense. Thusly (and rather frequently actually) hilarious outcomes would occur, like a settler defeating a battleship, a miltia defeated a fortified rifle squad on some hills, and, most famously, a nuclear missile being shot down by a musketeer (it still blew up though).

    That reminds me. I had a question.

    Are the expansions expansions to the original game, or are they more separate? The Kingdoms expansion for Medieval 2 threw me for a loop when it was basically 4 more, separate, games.

    Were I to play Beyond the Sword, would I be in effect playing a separate game from the original Civ 4, or would it in fact be the same game with additions?

    It is sort of as though you just said that your large prior experience driving should prepare you for wakeboarding.

    Like

    Like those games do not prepare you for Civ even a little bit. Like, SimCity probably prepares you more. That's what prepared me, at least.

    But those are the games I think of when I think "strategy gaming," so I was a bit perplexed.

    I did however play Sim City for the Snes, and Sim Tower for the computer, so to know that is a help.

    Nostalgia! My first legitimate strategy game was Lord of War 2. It still holds a very special place in my heart, and I even remember my favorite starting territory (it held two quarries and nearby territories as well were rich in resources)

    I like that one song by System of a Down. I have nothing to say for myself, other than I am ashamed. If you don't like System of a Down, you are a better person than me. But I won't deny that I like it.

    I just wish other people would have the same philosophy about shitty bands they like.

    Your "overrated" claim depends entirely on your own experience. If people have been sacrificing virgins to Roger Waters, then I'd agree.

    Otherwise you can shut your mouth right now before I send you back to mother in a cardboard box.

    I say overrated not because the music isn't as good as people say, because it is for the most part, but because Pink Floyd inspires such a ridiculously dedicated group of fans that deride pretty much any other artist ever in comparison to Pink Floyd.

    I mean, sure there are Pink Floyd fans who are just fine. But aside from classical music nerds, I've never encountered such a high percentage of pretentious douchebags among an artist's fans as I have with Pink Floyd fans.

    So yeah, I don't have a beef with the band so much as I'm annoyed by the fans.

    I can completely understand, since I think the band is rad enough to inspire this kind of zealotry with its fans, but I've honestly never met an outspoken Pink Floyd fan. Maybe it's my age group.

    Do you have the option of saving video? You could just record normally and then go through and select frames. It'd be a bit of a hassle, but would work.

    Nah, it only works to take stills and with applications like Yahoo! Messenger. I think that some of those applications would let me take the video and then grab frames from it, but it's more work than even I am willing to put into being self-absorbed. :K

    Good idea, though! ^^

    You should also look into the Fall From Heaven mod, as it is so fucking sweet and turns Civ into a crazy fucking fantasy game with pirates and demons and oh my god.

    Ok. I've got it.

    Get a soda can and cut the top and bottom off. Now get 3 or 4 two inch .5 inch diameter wood cylinders. Rest the hollowed tube of a soda can on the equally spaced "pillars."

    Poke two hole on opposite sides of the top of the soda can and needle a small toothpick like object through. Get a small appr. 1 inch length of string. Chew a stick of bubble gum for about a minute until it's out of sugar and can dry well, and form it around the soda tab. Roll it in dirt or get more gum if you have to. this tab/gum object has to be heavy enough to click the mouse from appr. a 2 to 3 inch drop. Make sure to leave one loop of the soda tab uncovered.

    Tie the soda tab to the toothpick. Tie another piece of string to exactly where the first piece of string is. Place your mouse's left button directly under your tabgum object.

    Light the second string on fire. It'll burn until it hits the first string, the object will drop. Picture taken.

    The length of the first string depends on how long you want your delay to be.

    If this is too much work you could always just throw quarters at the mouse button and see if that works.
