  1. [quote name='Assurancetourix' date='24 November 2009 - 12:45 PM' timestamp='1259059522' post='48318'] may I ask what kind of music was on? traditional "calush"? [/quote] it wasn't traditional, though it was quite funky by looks of it
  2. actually, all of us are supposed to know this dance by law and perform it in public at least once a year, except for those like rhah who are phisically unable to...and yes it happens in the MD community as well, here's proof [img]http://lh3.ggpht.com/_F7PZ_1Ghzm8/Sv7D80N1FvI/AAAAAAAAAio/obo8gT-e04Y/s720/DSC07440.JPG[/img] Mur and me [img]http://lh5.ggpht.com/_F7PZ_1Ghzm8/Sv7D9C1SY2I/AAAAAAAAAis/w3STiehz4OM/s720/DSC07441.JPG[/img] The elusive No one and Mur [img]http://lh5.ggpht.com/_F7PZ_1Ghzm8/Sv7D7_XrQ-I/AAAAAAAAAig/uVfJxgVnVMg/s720/DSC07434.JPG[/img] again Mur and me, and you can notice Rhah in the background on the left (in red), really upset and pouting about not being able to dance PS - these are pictures from the second MD beer in Bucharest - watch that topic for the rest of them (to be honest i was waiting for any censorship requests and forgot to post them )
  3. ZOMFG! This is too funny! I can't believe no one watches South Park around here! http://ccinsider.comedycentral.com/2009/11/05/south-park-redefines-the-f-word/
  4. he asks "can you rub mine as well?" but seriously, he asks "would you rub your stomach if i asked you whether rubbing your stomach means yes?" - if the martian rubs his stomach then it means yes, if he does something else than that means yes and the rubbing the stomach means no ps - asking directly whether rubbing the stomach means yes would always yield a thorough rubbing, since if it means yes he does rub his stomach and if it means no he still rubs his stomach in reply to the question (same with asking whether it means no, since if it means no the martian would do the sign for yes and if it does mean yes the martian would do the sign for no)
  5. everything's pretty cool and i can live with a white coffee mug but you should really add some designs that work on black t-shirts, white t-shirts look gay to me

    [quote name='Aeoshattr' date='21 November 2009 - 01:27 PM' timestamp='1258802849' post='48010'] yeah, i was just gonna suggest that. 'Ignore user' feature [/quote] maybe taking away his ability to send PM's for a while would be an appropriate sentence? kinda like a PM Silence spell in other news, looks like Aeoshattr is a Christina Aguilera fan
  7. [quote name='Totenkopf' date='05 November 2009 - 02:35 AM' timestamp='1257381324' post='46655'] i acquired a few more in the meanwhile Element Principle = 30.77 Principle of Cyclicity = 17.01 Principle of Light = 101.75 Principle of Balance = 53.35 Principle of Syntropy = 21.6 [/quote] Now I have all 10, however as of moving to MP5, I've additionally selected Light, even though it doesn't show up as the fifth in my list, so my real principles should be: Principle of Imagination Darkness Principle Time Principle Principle of Enthropy Principle of Light and the new ones: Element Principle Principle of Cyclicity Principle of Balance Principle of Syntropy Transposition Principle
  8. [quote name='dst' date='20 November 2009 - 06:49 PM' timestamp='1258735780' post='47969'] Has any of you attacked an mp2 when you got the error? Or the last fight was with an mp2? [/quote] nope, for me it happened when i had just logged in after being idle for a few hours
  9. [quote name='Muratus del Mur' date='19 November 2009 - 09:46 PM' timestamp='1258659978' post='47902'] can you confirm is happening everytime the combat log is empty? [/quote] no, for me it happened just that one time, however it happens quite often that the button lights up like a new fighting is going on, and the last fight is repeated if i click it (and this happened to me up to 5-6 times in a row for the same fight)
  10. [quote name='Liberty4life' date='18 November 2009 - 10:53 PM' timestamp='1258577636' post='47846'] now since ya got small sneak peek i ask ya to do for me few things and/or answer some questions at which historical point should game start from?[/quote] it depends a lot on whether it's single-player or mmo - but i'll go with the assumption it's a mmo - if it's mmo, it would be unfair to new players to start in the bronze age and go up against guys with nuclear weapons, sort of like mp3s going against mp5 in MD As such you need to either have a kind of separation as in MD, or have set time periods for each "round" with everyone starting off at zero, and possibly multiple servers running in parallel once the game gets off the ground and there's demand for it. an interesting idea would be to start off in an early period and have initially only a hunter/gatherer choice, from which multiple other paths or "job" posibilities might emerge as the society advances [quote]make a list of possible stats player should have that arent related to anything except mind and body (good example: physical strenght, stamina; bad example: attack, defense) make list of resources make list of possible jobs make list of possible feats/abilities make list of useful items that will be produced (just general names no variations please becoz players ingame will be able to make variations of items during production of them) have any other idea that could fit in? or want to add possible requirements for harvesting of each resource or uses for res, how to get better at some job, ideas of specific item production, how feats can affect each other, how stats can be used or something else is on your mind feel free to discuss [/quote] again, i would start off with a few stats, which may increase in complexity as the game advances - for example you could start with strength, social skills and intelligence - and let's say inteligence could further divide into creativity (which would lead to something like an artist job) and theory (which could lead to inventing theoretical concepts like maths and so on) and application (which would create actual devices out of the theoretical concepts), and maybe combinations of these would lead to diferrent paths. Social skills could include something like trade sense or negotiation which could help merchants, oratory/politics which would lead to political careers/leadership (and may influence relations with subjects) and social interaction which could help in various things such as finding mates, teaching etc. And strength would split maybe into actual physical strength, stamina, hunting prowess (which with intelligence could evolve into tactics, strategy etc.) feats and abilities should integrate into most of the jobs, being more effective for some and less effective for others - e.g. understanding maths would help mostly researchers but to some extent merchants and even gatherers at an early stage. resources required should differ and evolve as well as society advances, in the beginning they would need just water and food (maybe wild game from hunters and fruit from gatherers), but should evolve based on need, e.g. at some point they need more wood for fire then later stone for buildings and so on.
  11. looks pretty cool, but i'm waiting before there's more than one item to order
  12. 1920x1200 or 1920x1080 (when watching the ol' plasma) on my home rig, 1366 by 768 on my laptop - but i'm travelling more than 26 weeks/year so probably i use the laptop more.
  13. wow, a lot of my favourites have been covered here (Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, Milan Kundera, Garcia Marquez, George Orwell, Dune series - right now i'm reading the prequels -, Ender series etc.) I'll add a few random must-reads from my latest reads: Haruki Murakami - Kafka on the shore, The Wind-up Bird Chronicle John Niven - Kill your friends Milan Kundera - Immortality Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea - The Illuminatus! Trilogy (and anything else by RAW) Alex Boese - Elephants on Acid SF: Peter F. Hamilton - Pandora's Star, Judas Unchained, The Void trilogy Dan Dobos - Abatia trilogy (Romanian, for Dune fans)

  19. [quote name='DarkPriestess' date='14 November 2009 - 05:34 PM' timestamp='1258212891' post='47439'] Mur, I think you left it at the club... or was it at the pub?! Hmm... better yet let me look around for it... We don't want any red buttons! And Akasha, don't worry about the flight. At least you dreamt that we went to the airport and I got the plane. Funny part is... I do not think my mom should expect me there [/quote] I told you we should've gone to the afterhours club and stayed up till 10 well i tried to, but lasted only till 6-7ish sooo, anyone up for another party tonight?

  20. good morning all wow that was fun last night! i feel i just came back from funky-ville started at 8pm in a bar, much beer and the above-mentioned mici were consumed, then most of us moved to a small club and had countless shots and spontaneous merriment and dance ensued pictures are on their way, hopefully enough will survive the censorship, but we're at 80-ish right now
  21. [quote name='teufelhunden' date='11 November 2009 - 09:38 AM' timestamp='1257925086' post='47193'] Last time somebody had a telephone number we could call.

  22. [quote name='cryxus' date='10 November 2009 - 01:07 PM' timestamp='1257851273' post='47135'] what is it exactly? looks like a sausage, some mustard and a tomato wedge (you cannibals) [/quote] it's minced beef (sometimes mixed with other types of minced meat) with lots of seasonings/spices, grilled over a wood-based fire usually. the meat is a bit fatty, but most of the fat melts on the grill usually and leaves the mici nice and juicy - you eat them with fresh bread and mustard (and fries and cabbage salad in my case) and definitely lots of beer, before, during, and after from wikipedia: Mititei (Romanian pronunciation: [mitiˈtej]) or mici ([mitʃʲ]; Romanian for little or small ones) is a traditional Romanian dish, grilled minced-meat rolls made from beef (usually mixed with mutton and pork), which contain garlic, black pepper, thyme, coriander, anise, savory and sometimes a touch of paprika. Sodium bicarbonate (and sometimes broth or water) is also added to the mixture. It is best served accompanied by mustard and beer. Ideally the mustard should not contain too much vinegar, because the sour taste does not fit with the Mititei. LE: Ok, I found a 1920 recipe from one of the best mici places in Bucharest - here it is, translated with google translate heavily edited by yours truly: Take beef meat(preferably from the neck) without removing the fat and mince twice. If meat is too lean, add some cow or even sheep fat, around 100 to 150 grams per kilogram of meat (note - this will melt on the grill, but it allows the mici to keep their flavourful juices). Do not add any case lard, bacon or pork, which do nothing to ruin the wonderful taste of mici. Prepare beef broth, from bones with marrow, 500 grams of bones to every kilo of meat. Prepare for each kilogram of meat spices and condiments as follows: * 8 grams of finely crushed fresh pepper * 12 grams of dried thyme (as fresh as possible) finely crushed * 4 grams of finely crushed allspice * 2 grams of finely crushed coriander * 2 grams of finely crushed (Turkish) cumin * 1 gram of finely crushed star anise * 8 grams of sodium bicarbonate * 1 tablespoon lemon juice * 1 tablespoon oil * 1 garlic head (dunno what this is called in English, one "head" is the bulb with all the cloves) For quantities larger than five kilograms, add one more measure of spices for each additional five kilograms of meat. Mix meat in a dish for about an hour, adding baking soda from the beginning, mellowed by lemon juice. All the spices except the garlic and half the broth are added slowly, evenly and little by little. The mixture is covered and left in a cold place (fridge) one day and one night, then removed, allowed a few hours to "stretch out" and is mixed again for half hour with the remaining broth. Prepare a garlic sauce ("mujdei") with warm water and one garlic head for each kilogram of meat, and squeeze/strain the garlic after half an hour. Add part of it to mixture and mix for another 15 minutes. Leave in fridge until the next day. Three hours before grilling and serving, remove the mixture from the fridge, and let it thaw by itself. After three hours or when the mixture is thawed, forms the mici (sausage-shape) as long as a thumb, and as thick as two fingers, grease them with oil on all sides and ends and allow to sit for an hour. Fry over a hot grill of wood or coal, occasionally basting with garlic-sauce, in order to get a ruddy crust around. Turn only three times while it is roasted. The fried mici will decrease a bit in size, that's where their name comes from. Do not allow over-cook them, in order not to dry the flavorful juices. If you use a slow fire, the mici will become too hard and dry. Serve with bread or slices of loaf with Dijon mustard or spicy mustard, and as prefered, with salt and chillies.

If you dare to stop these "meetings" when I'm back in RO ... I'll kill you !! :D:D:D:D [/quote] lol when are you coming back MasterB? I'll set up a beer meeting when you're back, if I'm in the country myself [quote name='de la Rey' date='10 November 2009 - 02:55 AM' timestamp='1257814505' post='47126'] Hmm, if I remember it correctly, in Piranha I once ate that delicious romanian dish called ''mici'' (phonetic translation: ''meech'', english translation: ''littles''). Hope they still serve them there, they work like a charm with beer! [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons//cool.gif[/img] And please, do not let yourselves be fooled by their appearance. Really, come on, people... [img]http://www.servingromania.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/mici.jpg[/img] [/quote] [img]http://lh3.ggpht.com/_F7PZ_1Ghzm8/SvkZ27eulYI/AAAAAAAAAeA/f2qSaujHAKc/want.jpg[/img] oh yeah, don't get fooled by the appearance, it's one of the few "traditional" romanian dishes that I actually like as soon as the snow starts melting in spring and the sun comes out a bit, you'll see everyone whip out their portable grills and these little buggers smoking everywhere
  24.
