But I will still remember Molotov as X-Naut.

At least he didn't come up with something crude, like BadgerRapist, or something equally cruel and sick.

Yeah, it sounds cruel and sick, but a name like that just sounds really retarded.

Before I get to the actual catch-up posts in here... I just want to make a little Public Service Announcement type post about a couple of "dos and don'ts of teh LUL!" so... here we go:

INITIATE PSA ENGINES!

I've noticed wayyyyy too many people posting two-three-four word posts. Featuring 0 content EXCEPT the stat they're statbragging about. Folks, you've got to do better than that.

And while I've seen plenty of posts like "4,000 blams!" or "9,000 experience! :)" and so on and so forth... the main offender as of late seems to be whistlebrag. See the three cases below. ALL THREE OF THESE POSTS ARE FROM ONE SINGLE PAGE OF LEVEL UP, and they're all for the same achievement:

Folks, that is NOT the way to announce your deity whistle to the world. Put some more flash and/or substance into it, PLEASE. "Woot" isn't quite enough, but at least he tried harder than just adding a period. #;-}>

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT, FOLKS! Not only did he add substance, he actually THANKED people. Amazing.

Kudos to you, thomtomw.

PSA PART 2

Not to single this poor bastard out, but he's a perfect example of another annoying trend we've all come to love/hate:

Do we even care at all? No? Yeah, i didn't think so.

This has been sooooo done to death. Stop replying to spancker's post from page 1 (or any other post from page 1, for that matter) and acting like it was just made yesterday. It's from TWO-THOUSAND-FUCKING-TWO, you blind and ignorant and dense fools. Notice how the topic has nearly 2000 pages? Do you think those hundreds and hundreds of pages all sprung up in the past few weeks? Idiots, the lot of you.

I think it's great that the guy who posted this is now a lvl 18.

And that most of the people who first posted on the topic are now some of the highest ranking NGers.

Now THAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT. MonkeyonNG, you are a CREDIT to your species. You replies to the same post that the other guy did, but instead of being an idiot, you made some thoughtful and interest comments about how times change, and you seem to understand the passage of time to begin with. AMAZING. #;-}>

And now... back to our regularly-scheduled LUL! programming... catch-up posts due... SHORTLY!

YAY FOR BOTH KNOWING A BAND FOR ONCE.

Also, I saw you listing Deep Purple on your listening to: a day or so ago.
Yeah, I bought their In Rock album yesterday and it's great. Child in Time is such an awesome song. I'll have to get their Machine Head album since it contains Highway Star and Smoke on the Water.

Highway Star and Smoke on the Water are definitely the two songs of theirs that I'm most familiar with.

I'm not sure if I've heard Child in Time or not. Like with many things, it's quite likely I have heard it and just never knew the title. I'll have to look for it some time and find out if I know it or not and if not, see what I think of it. #;-}>

Awwww... not forever. Just... gone away for awhile. Like Santa.
I heard Cyberdevil was trying to take over, but there seems to be nothing heard from SK about it.

That'd be what the RG thread on C&C seems to indicate, yes.

Al Gore's daughter was writing for Futurama at one point.
I didn't know that. :O

THE MORE YOU KNOW.

Did Conan O'Brien just write for the Simpsons back in the early 90s?
I dunno.

Jeez, you don't know much, do ya. #;-}>

Just as Phil Hartman shoulda been, but he kinda got killed by his wife just before starting to play Zapp Brannigan. ;_;
I never knew about Phil Hartman, the voice actor for Troy Mcclure being killed until a few weeks ago. :( I also never noticed the absence of Troy when Phil got killed. :|

................. you only found out he was dead this year?! Dude, he died in like 1998.... 9 years ago, that summer during the offseason between Newsradio seasons 4 and 5.

It was probably the toughest death for comedy to take in the past two decades. Yes, I know, Chris Farley... Mitch Hedberg... and many other comedic losses in the 90s and 00s, but... Phil Hartman's death was the hardest to take by far.

Didn't you ever watch him on SNL? Newsradio? Etc? Is your only fandom of him anonymous through his Simpsons voices?

He wasn't just the voice of Troy, BTW. Lionel Hutz ring a bell? #;-}>

Kristan Gore still does, to my knowledge.

For the new material, you mean? Wasn't aware of that. Still, there was a big gap there in the middle. I wonder if she was involved with the Simpsons or any other animated show in between.

Did Conan O'Brien just write for the Simpsons back in the early 90s? I don't think he was ever involved with Futurama.
He was a staff writer for the Simpsons, then made his way into other projects. He has had at least 1 guest appearance on Futurama (Xmas Story - he has a stand up gig for breakfast at the resort where the gang are staying)

Well of course I've seen the ep where they're at the ski resort and he's doing stand-up (har har... without standing up)... but I meant I don't think he's ever WRITTEN for Futurama, that's what I was getting at.

P'haps. You've been leaving a lot of single words out of your posts lately, I must say. At least two of your posts to me have had their meanings dramatically altered by accident by you. #;-}>

Thanks for noticing. I'm closing in on 3/4 of your holy grail of B/Ping - 36k

Schweeeeetness.

Well, Dogma took an insane break from the BBS and then DID come back, so I guess you could argue I've pulled a Dogma a few times. I didn't have the patent on that sort of thing.
"Pulling a D0GMA", yeah, that sounds suitably loaded with innuendo.

Just as it should be.

Well, you can have a few of them, that would certainly help me make up my mind for getting to 15k / 15k. C0GMA's got over 200 now, so take them, by all means as well.

If only 'twere that easy.

:::rolling of teh eyes::: Dude... have you checked my postcount lately? I'm not exactly stuck at 6000 or something. I've posted from 9000 to 9250 faster than I posted from 8800 to 8900, in fact. I remember that 100 posts taking an exceptionally long amount of time is the reason I single that one out, rather tha 8900 to 9000 (which I think was somewhat faster).

It won't be all THAT long till I hit the 10k. By January is Coop's prediction, and I'd say that's my own OUTSIDE prediction at the moment as well. Inside predict is prolly September, as has also been discussed.

Why does Bahamut care? Why do I care? Why does at least one other person (can't remember who, but I know me and the dragon ain't alone on this one) bother talking about this issue?

Well, let me set this up for you:

If I were to change my name from gfoxcook to ... uh.... saddonkeyman.

And you were to change your name from schneelocke to gfoxcook.

Don't you think it'd be REASONABLE to expect some backlash from the rest of Wi/Ht? People would be upset with both you (for assuming my old (and one and true) name) and me (for letting go of it in the first place, and claiming not to care for some stupid-ass reason) as well.

I would think quite a few people would find it confusing, saddening, and lame. And that's how Bahamut and I feel about a legendary user and a legendary name no longer being linked together, as they once were.

Exactly! If I did permanently change my name to something different (not saying I will want to change my name), I would accept the fact that people would still call me Bahamut, because that's what people know me as. I wouldn't tell anyone to stop calling me Bahamut, I'd just let them call me by that name.

And if someone else changed their name to Bahamut after you weren't Bahamut anymore... we'd all be giving them crap, too.

Yeah, but now that the usernames have been locked down, we are stuck with him as X-Naut and Molotov as Molotov. At least he didn't come up with something crude, like BadgerRapist, or something equally cruel and sick.

I'd actually prefer if the "new" X-Naut were named something like BadgerRapist instead. Because then at least we wouldn't have to see X-Naut all over the place in topics but the poster not actually being the true X-Naut. Eh.. Whatcha gonna do, though.

Congrats. :) And don't worry, at the current rate, the level 60 system will take another decade or two to be implemented, at least. ;)

Thanks for the pre-congrats, guys. Now get ready for the real thing... well, okay, I deposited like SIX FREAKING HOURS AGO, but you'll have to pardon my slowness in getting around to catching up in here. I didn't want to just drop by for the THIRD straight day...er... night and just post a level up, so I forced myself to come and catch up, only I didn't start until around 3AM! Fun fun fun. #;-}>

...

LEVEL UP!

20070622 - 17050/17057 (fake level 22)
20070623 - 17060/17063 (fake level 22)
20070624 - 17070/17069 (DING DING DING!!! ACTUAL LEVEL 22!!!)

I've always been more of a sword fan than an axe fan, but level 21 and level 22 are pretty nice looking axes, at least. I like the look of 22 with my green neutral aura, too.... and I am VERY gratified to have experienced EVERY LEVEL UP TO BUT NOT INCLUDING one of the lamer level icons (along with 14, of course)... that being level 23.

Now, of course, I wish I could hit level 24 and 25 before the 60 level system goes into effect (I hope you're right about that decade or two, schnee...), but I think I'll just have to either hope they're in the 45-60 range of levels in the new system (it's possible...), or else that gfoxclock or gfox will get to be them, because it just doesn't seem to be in the cards for gfoxcook to experience level 24 or 25.

Still, those 2 aside... the other 3 of my top 5 levels have already come and gone (16, 20, and 15)... and 21 and 22 are certainly top 10ish levels of mine.

So.......

LEVEL 22 FTW. I shall enjoy teh oldschool level 22 for as long as Tom Fulp shall let me. HUZZAH!

Goodnight. #;-}>

I am sorry but I have to post this here. In the VP thread gfoxcook notice my b/p rank at 36 and so on and AT's post above prompted me to see who was ranked 136 in b/p because its my exp ranking. Or I can look whos ranked 36 in experience (my b/p ranking) same person PMKD.

me
Experience: Ranked # 136 out of 1,192,835 users!
Blam/Protect: Ranked # 36 out of 1,192,835 users!

him
Experience: Ranked # 36 out of 1,192,835 users!
Blam/Protect: Ranked # 136 out of 1,192,835 users!

Not milestone, achievement or congrats worthy but the most coincidental statistical thing I ever see. or not sorry boys.

I agree with you sir. But what's sad is that the people who usually post their achievements in this manner won't be able to read this post due to their way of just posting their achievement and leaving the place. :(

PSA PART 2

I agree with you here as well. Thanks for pointing out these two common posting misconceptions several users tend to execute.

i'm pushing 7k b/p at the moment, but i'm still about 145 away. should get it in the next 3-4 days. then i'll be on the last of the blue elite guard badges... =D=D

It's frustrating how slowly new Flashes seem to come in into the portal now when I need 'em.

indeed.

Good luck with 7k b/p by the way, 145 won't take long B)

naw, the portal has really slowed down now though, so it's taking about half an hour to get each point.

good luck with 5k =)
