Programmers Anonymous Updates Guardian
Posted by Nick on 5 April 2000, 05:28 GMT

GuardianAdam Chard and Aaron Chard of Programmers Anonymous have released an update to an interesting new game in BASIC called Guardian. It hasn't gotten a mention before, but it certainly runs fast for a BASIC RPG. It's quite large but definitely worth the transfer.

Confidential to Kouri Rosenberg: After exhaustive research for the past two nights, I have concluded, with mild reluctance, that you are, in fact, extremely salubrious. In fact, I might go to great lengths to say that you are the pinaccle of salubriousness! *g*

Conducive or favorable to health or well-being.

[From Latin salbris, from sals, health; see sol- in Indo-European Roots.]

Er, thanks Nick. I also have done extensive research on salubrity. One interesting thing I noted in particular is that the salubrity levels among the TI community is especially high, as much as 16 times greater than the average human. I hope to publish my findings soon in the May issue of Nature magazine. Look for the article entitled, "A ticalc.org webmaster a day keeps the doctor away".

Nick, Nick, Nick...

It's salubriousness, not salubriousity!

Just thought I would attempt to rectify your egregious grammatical error! Hehe

I'm at school and first period is about to end, so I'll fix it when I get home.

Thanks for pointing that out... I figured I got it wrong, but it sounded neat nonetheless :-)

It's nice to see you all promoting the less-often used words in the English language but uh... How about that game?

I just noticed the zip file is screwed up on that update. I copied the folder names from my computer when I added the files to the zip. I'll re-update tonight and fix that.

Funky. That is about all I have to say about Netscape 6. Click on the URL to go to some pictures I made comparing NS6 and IE5.1 with ticalc.org as the webpage. I played with the preview release for about half an hour before going back to IE5. Hopefully the final version will have many improvements.

The tables are really the biggest oddity... Nothing else really seems bad.

Isn't Netscape 6 really Mozilla?

Netscape 6 was Mozilla until Netscape bastardized it and it became NS6.

(Yes, that was a valid use of the word "bastardized")

We're aware of this and we're working to fix it.

Sorry about that :\

Heh. Well what do you expect from the browser that's been so behind IE for so long? I can't see why people still use it.

Well... it's better than the AOL browser... which I hear can't even do javascript right, good thing I don't have AOL.
