Out of the Blue

Happy Father's Day to all the dads celebrating out there, and their kids for that matter. I'll get to catch up with my step-dad later today, but this is a reminder that it's been altogether too long since I've seen the other (original) half of my dual-daddies, so I think I'll make a plan to do that soon when I talk with him today.

We should make this a sticky note.

<hint>Maybe Blue could put that link off to the left somewhere... under Resources maybe?</hint>

Although I have the feeling something like that might not be UGO-approved.

Then again, you could slap that site on your browser bookmarks!

I was under the impression that most North Sea oil was British - they're always going on about how we are net exporters of oil so these high prices are <irritating Blair smile> "well, you know, a good thing" </teeth>

lol

Edit: That was more an expression of Blair irritation than disputing the fact that the North Sea was somewhere near Norway

We should invade Norway then! Alot closer than Iraq; for us Brits there's even a ferry every hour, weekdays I believe, most convienient. They are all descended from viking invaders who had a go at us several hundred years ago, so fair's fair.

A friend pointed me to this guys tweaks page for thief 3.


Anybody have the link to the page where the guy fixed the textures for DX:IW? I remember it being posted, but didn't bookmark it.

Thanks!

The north sea (Norway) will go dry within the next 50 years.

Would it help? Nope. It would increase oil production by about 3% over 5 to 10 years max. Renewable energy investment is what's desperately needed. All the drilling in the world isn't going to make a difference in the next 10 years

A friend pointed me to this guys tweaks page for thief 3. His patch gets rid of the nasty 'blue glow' effect on doors and replaces it with a more subtle brown. He has also improved textures on Garret a hell of alot, as can be seen in his screenshots.

Easy to install and runs fine for me.
