There were a couple of things about the game that made it a lot of fun to play:

1) Gameplay.

The gameplay offered up more realism than most games of the same era, yet it wasn't overly realistic. It stuck a good balance between arcadey fragfest and super-anal-realistic simulation. The whole one-life per round thing was kind of new at the time and made it a more difficult game to master, as well it became much more necessary to support (and be supported by) your teammates.

2) Continued development.

Every once in a while, a new version would come out, with one or two new weapons, some new maps, as well as some upgrades to existing favorites. The development team was always working to improve the experience, which is not something you really see in most games, especially FREE ones. The addition of an excellent in-game real-time voice-communication was a feat that has yet to be duplicated, and it added a whole other dimension to the game.

I kind of miss playing CS, but in the same way that I miss Q1; a kind of nostalgic reminiscence of the good times had while playing. I have some hope that any future sequels will be as much fun as the original, but a part of me suspects that what made the game so great at the time was that it was fresh and new, and that original feeling can't ever really be duplicated.

The Coast Guard, calling the truck a ''hazard to navigation,'' sank it.

Noooooooo!!! That was a 1951 Chevy Flatbed.

Wow, lure the guy outside his home country with a phony job interview, then throw him in the slammer. They must have really wanted this guy badly.

As someone who has both flown an airplane in real life and in a PC simulation, let me assure you that they are two VERY different experiences.

You have to look at it from Hudson's point of view: Defending territory is a tough job, but it has to be done. As soon as you let one skunk across your borders, you might as well move out and let the skunks have the place. It's about RESPECT, damnit!

Of course you're right... This would have to be server-side. Damn. Oh well, Freddie gets to stay I guess. I just found it kind of strange that Blue would actually take the time to sort through the boards and delete individual posts, surely there had to be a better way.

But anyway, I get to be right about ONE thing today:

well if that's the case who's board would it be?

Yours? maybe you should leave desicions like that up to the curator.

Dude, you misunderstand. Have another White Russian and try to relax.

The user mute feature we're asking for is strictly a client-side implementation. It would allow you (or me) to filter out messages from certain users to stop them being displayed on our end only. That way each person has the choice of whether or not they wish to see posts from a particular user. It's by far the most equitable solution for everyone.

and if he flushed his cookies? wouldent he then see that he is not being represented?

Ah, yes. If he tossed his cookies, the jig would be up. I forgot for a second that you only need to log in to POST messages, not to READ them. Drat.

I guess all that leaves is to track him down and kill him. Oh well.

*EDIT* I agree with Scott; allowing us to mute users ourselves would also be an effective solution.

I've got it. I figured out how to solve the Fredrickson problem!

The trouble with a ban is that the banned person can simply create a new account for themselves and be back in business. With an IP ban, all it takes is a new IP.

The way to solve this problem is to 'mute' the account, so that the offending poster can continue to post away, but the system displays the posts only to the offending account. This way the offender may not even realize that thier posts are being blocked, while the other users need not be bothered by them any longer.

i don't follow too much american politics but i saw letterman the other day with the press secretary or whatever and they were talking about how they found the chemical and biological weapons just not the nuclear. i always figured they wouldnt have the nuclear but they always had a good argument about the rest

And what exactly would you expect the White House press secretary to say?

I just did a search on CNN's website, using the terms 'iraq' 'weapons' and 'mass destruction', and came up with nothing solid. Now, the cynic in me has to ask the question: if they have clear evidence, why would it be so hard to find? For a people whose nation was founded on the principle of 'distrust of governments', it surprises me how easily you accept being lied to.

What I find interesting, is that the countries that refused to enter the war based on the U.S.'s claim that Saddam was building weapons of mass destruction, actually turned out to be correct, yet you don't see those countries lambasting the U.S.

We got Big Brother trying to make it a FELONY to upload a single copyrighted file, and trying to create a link between file sharing and terrorism... We got people who long to be amputees, people who go to a chatroom wanting to be killed and eaten, we got people with flies coming out of their privates, and we got fredrickson...

Bring on the apocolypse, man. I'm ready.

PLEASE stop quoting the dead's deletion-worthy posts... it sort of takes the point out of me deleting them.

Why do you go through all the trouble of deleting individual posts? Why not just ban the guy and be done with it? You have shown infinite patience and restraint, yet this person refuses to tow the line.

Cut him loose.

Right then! Wasn't it Frank Oz that did his voice and the voice of the large robot medallion on his chest?

I don't know why, but every time I repeat the words 'large robot medallion' to my self I break out laughing... Maybe it's because the first time I watched that show I was young enough not to question the absurdity of designing a robot that could only walk around saying "beedeebeedeebeedee" while ensconcing the sentient brain robot in a large medallion?

Well, there's a couple things to be said about this bit.

1) The guy's skill is somwhat impressive, but unlike a fragfest the sequence of keys to hit is not random. Once you recognize the tune that's coming, then you know what notes to hit next.

2) If they could build this game into a cabinet that uses a standard keyboard, I think I could finally learn to play the piano.
