    By any chance, was it Pokemon Uranium? Or not?

    Alright I have a though here: I just changed up part of my account so that i could see the newest posts at the top of the page (just to try it out) and in order to reach the quick reply i have to go all the way to the bottom. Is it possible to set it up to move to the top of the page when someone switches over to the newest posts 1st setting? (btw I don't exactly know where this should go I just thought it would fit in here since it's kind of a general thought.)

    Hm I don't think it works because I think quick reply and the posts are separate elements, so unless you do some heavy scripting it'd be at the top for everyone. But zeroality's really the one who can comment on this.

    ah okay, well i was curious if it mighta been possible without having to restructure teh entire site is all.
    also i thought it was interesting to have to go to the bottom of the page for it when the posts are up top.

    Uh, Virus, I think you have your forum settings strange, then, cause for me, and probably everyone else, the newest posts appear at the bottom.

    well if you go to your settings, general settings, thread display options you can choose linear - newest first (puts the latest up top), linear - oldest first (latest at bottom), threaded or hybrid, i chose the latest 1st to see what it would do is all

    Cyn’s Insights:
    You know you have a problem when you’re exhausted but you force yourself to finish a story…that you don’t plan to show anyone for over a week.
    You know you have a problem when you get angry at your stomach because it keeps growling. “Really, all you think about is food! Can’t you see I’m trying to write a story here?!?”
    You know you have a problem when you’re two stories into a series but have plot jotted down for another dozen.
    You know you have a problem when you’re three stories into a series and are trying to figure out, if each story is like an anime episode, how long would a story have to be to equal a movie?
    You know you have a problem when you start to appreciate how the words “You know you have a problem when you” line up perfectly on a page.
    You know you have a problem when you have seven of these in a row. And I’ve only got six. Must be fine.

    Seriously, all of these happened to me on the same day (today). I should go to sleep.
    On the other hand, I've still got some story-ing to do...
    And there are interwebs to explore...

    I don't really think there's a problem with a lot of these, except not eating. I'm sure all of us experience most of those thoughts at one point or another.

    It's a relief to know that I'm not the only one who feels like this sometimes... but I still wish that writing and I could have a better relationship.
    It's a love-hate relationship. I love to write. I hate my writing. I like to think that I can come up with a good plot, good twists, decent characters. And when I put pen and paper together and start scribbling out my ideas, I'm pretty satisfied with the results.
    It's the computer that makes me angry. For a start, I don't like typing things that I've written on paper. But also, it seems like the computer makes my writing worse.
    Example: I type out a nice, two-page story (or Topaz Adventures episode). As I'm typing, I occationally have trouble wording things right, making my meaning clear, and putting the right double entendre into areas that need more than one entendre. I correct, adjust, and fixate on certain sentances as I go, making the work take much longer than it ususally would but (I think) improving the quality of work. I love this part. It's mostly a pure flow of ideas, like my brain is flowing magic writing juices out through my fingers and squirting them all over the monitor.
    Then I reread my work. I notice things like unvarying sentance structure, over-clarification of points, and overused words. I try to fix parts that seem rushed, slow, abrupt, or out of place. I focus on thing that I would never notice in anyone's writing but my own. It's like a puzzle, trying to fix all the things that are wrong. This isn't the part that I hate. This part's fine, just part of the process.
    What I hate is that I'll do this over and over again. Every time I read my work, I'll see something that I did wrong, a place that the wording seems awkward or a group of too many sentances with the same, boring structure. Even when I finally feel I've reached an acceptable level of wordcraft, all I have to do is wait a week or month or a year, and eventually it will all seem wrong. It sometimes makes me angry when the people I ask to revise my stories don't notice all the glaring errors that I see.
    That's part of why I like releasing Topaz Adventures as small episodes. I'm obligated to release them on time, so I have to put them out whether I'm completely satisfied or not. Which I never am. But once they're on the internet, I never have to read them again, except to check for and fill in any plotholes. It's nice to complete something and have no choice but to let it be.

    Feels kinda nice to type that out, even though it doesn't really change anything.

    Yeah i have to agree with IB there we've had a lot of these if not all (cept i never had the stomach problem, mine is i'm hungry i eat), writer's and other storytellers have these problems a lot (and i'm up there with the writing notes down on a dozen other stories without even finidshing 1)....

    changing subjects here:
    MESPRIT FREAKIN SUCKS!!!!---okay more of an annoyance more than anything else, i've got it down in the red and paralyzed (which now that i think about it i shoulda put to sleep instead) and it still runs away (even with a poke with arena trap holding it there) ultraballs and quickballs seem to be the only ones that get the closest in caputing it.--i needs another masterball (used up mine on Dialga and a traded on on Heatran)
    I did luck out the other day and catch cresselia (yes i'm still playin diamond, 1st time through--played since '07) course i needs SS and either black or white (region looks good but not a lot of pokemon do sadly...)
    also is the black and white sequal 6th gen or still 5th?

    It would be 5th. There is no full generation of Pokemon coming out with it.

    Just realized that I recently beat an inactive member's (Quinn's) postcount. In celebration, I'm getting a new laptop!
    Actually, that second part's not true. I'm getting a new laptop for college, not because of postcounts. Although I will finally get PO and get on that Topaz+Other People server thing, and I'll be able to get that RPG Maker XP 30-day trial again, if we could use another person putting maps and stuff together.
    In case anyone cares (for example, someone who may need a new laptop [IB]), it's a 14-inch Dell Inspiron Ultrabook. I can't say if it's any good, though, since it still hasn't shipped...

    Ultrabooks lack raw processing power generally so if you're looking to compile massive monstrosity code then it'll be fine but not optimal. I was actually looking at an Ultrabook myself: a Lenovo Ideapad. Lenovo's a generally good company so it might be alright.

    Well, I'm hoping that my code will be usable by people without massive proccessing power.
    Also, if it doesn't take forever to compile, when do I get to have fun?

    Also, my college's engineering department should have more powerful computers if I need to do anything massive.

    might i suggest getting a different dell? I've looked at a particular portion of their site and found various PCs designed primarily for gaming (don't expect much cheapness though i'll post the prices) they've got some major processing power so if you need something done these should work.
    well dang:
    M11x: $1199
    M14x: $1099
    M17x: $1499
    M18x: $1999

    i was expecting a little cheaper than that, sorry bout that--btw in case you're wondering the numbers represent screen sizes i believe

    Computer get!
    I named her GLaDOS.
    Everything seems to be doing great, but I've really only installed things so far.

    Congrats! And wow, you would name her that. XD

    Heh, I want an Alienware, but I'll wait until I can save up the money for one.

    Well, tomorrow GLaDOS is getting a demo of RPGMXP, so I'll finally get to see and work on some of our maps. I'll probably get a full version later (in an unconventional manner). That should increase my productivity.

    Also, I've downloaded Pokemon Online, but haven't really tried it out much, and I can't locate the Topaz/Turquoise/Ever Grande City server. Is that down, or am I just being incompetent?

    IP changed? I knew the name.
    So, how exactly do you connect to a server? I tried looking for it in that list, but I didn't see it.

    Urk... It's changed back to Ever Grande City...

    Yeah, it was probably decided that the merge didn't do anything for EGC. I dropped the ball on this, sorry.

    It's not your fault. There weren't really a lot of Topaz people involved, and you've had your computer issues.

    How do you know that the name changed back? I'm not seeing any indication of the name. Also, I can't find anything saying that the merge ended.

    I just advanced connected to the IP I put there, and it was back to Ever Grande City.

    On the other hand, I have a new Lenovo Ideapad. It seems okay now that most of the updates have gone through. I'm just getting it setup now.

    I love being in a college with an official Pokemon League. I might try the card game for the first time since first gen.

    It's homecoming today. I may or may not be drunk as I post this. It may or may not be 9:00am. It may or not be my plan to sustain this state for at least the next 13 hours.

    That is all. #TopazModLyfe

    Today, the world was supposed to end. However, that did not happen and I got incredible luck today.

    First, I go onto PokeFarm and see an Egg I forgot to hatch. When I hatch it...

    SHINY YAMASK

    Then, not even five minutes ago, I hatched a Legendary Egg I had Summoned on PokeFarm. To my utter surprise...

    SHINY MANAPHY

    This and the fact that I just now heard that the Mother series MIGHT be rereleased in America (from a friend) makes tonight anything, but doomy.
