    Command and Conquer, Stronghold Crusader I still play, Gameranger it one time if you want?

    Never played those two. :P
    AoE, AoM, Rise of Nations and Warcraft III was as far as I got into RTS. Then I just stopped playing games for a few years... -_-

    Urrggghhh Apple :P 

    I can totally see the appeal with Apple computers, but I just can't see myself ever justifying spending so much on an apple product. Like they look nice and work pretty well, but I feel like I'd rather just deal with the hassle of dual booting to get the best of both than giving Apple any of my money. 

    I get you, man. I pretty much don't like Apple myself. Went to study at a bootcamp and a guy from London had bought a refurbished 17" matte-screen Macbook off eBay. They don't even make it anymore... it was a full HD with both an SSD and a hard disk. He said he got lucky with the price and man, that laptop, if he was willing to part from it, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

    I'm hoping I get lucky, too. If not, I'd have to try and get it from Apple - and I don't think they have variety or reasonable prices anymore, even for their own standards. At least in India.

    He spent his time programming and I spent my time fixing issues with Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Lubuntu dual boot or VM, and less time programming. So, yes, hands down if there's a good deal, I wouldn't hesitate to switch from my anti-Apple brigade.


    Edit: Just checked the prices. Yep, they've become unreasonable even for their unreasonable standards. Now my only hope is to get a refurbished Macbook. :P

    Bash on Windows is incredibly exciting – but we should be wary


    My thoughts: It's a good step, but I doubt it's going to get people to pick Windows over OS X just yet. Lot of work to be done, I would imagine, before developers would seriously consider Windows and not get laughed at.

    @Jamie @Flaw

    What if instead, we have it slightly more like facebook, where you get a notification if one of the people you follow/are friends with has a birthday! This will remove the annoying 20-people-you-don't-know-have-birthdays-today problem that will only lead to us ignoring the birthdays area of the site. 

    I think that's a good idea too!

  5. Yeah, I think that's a good compromise. If you have more than 10-15 posts on the forum, you show up on the birthday widget. Or should it be more posts than that?

    I think that's enough to eliminate spam/resting accounts.

  6. I was thinking about extra text too - but I don't know how to solve that. I think the birthday posts made people like JR more because they got wishes from a lot of people!

    At the same time, with the number of people now, there'd be 30 birthdays every day - so I'm not sure.

    Personally as a just a normal minecraft player vanilla has gotten boring for me, as a staff member I would enjoy getting on and helping if there are people on. If there is no one on Its just like playing in a solo world, which I would get bored of in minutes. But as long as there are people on I would be more then happy to get on :). Im always willing to jump on.

    Same. I've been trying to play solo but I get bored within minutes. :P

    I'll tag you in a post. Hold on.
