Welcome Ziggy. *obligatory random citrus pelting*

I'm really curious - how did you find us? We aren't exactly the most thriving community anymore.

"A hapless 20-something is forced to flee the city and hide out with a tribe of hippies after witnessing a brutal murder by a gang of criminal hairdressers."

I need to find this movie - solely to learn what a gang of criminal hairdressers is.

Yeah, so the thing about guys: we don't get subtle hints. We don't even get "cover my body in chocolate and wait for you naked on the bed"-level of hints.

Soo. Having read a few reviews and judging by the mob's reaction on reddit, I guess I'll give this one a pass. Also, I have zero time to actually play any games at the moment.

Any opposition, or is there something salvageble about this game?

Thank you for keeping the site alive, Chucara! I was afraid it was gone for good this time. Then what would we do?
Good question. Eat surströmning? Which as a Dane is what I assume Swedes do for the majority of their day.

Erhm. Ok.

The danger is over. We are all safe. I'd like to take the moment to appreciate that very few of you turned to cannibalism during this immense crisis. Keep up the good work guys!

Or don't panic, whatever.

Our hosts over at has pushed all their customers onto PHP 7.2. We were running an older version. Due to this, the site has been displaying a 500 error recently.

I have temporarily rolled us back to PHP 5.2, and I am upgrading the SMF forum software now. After this, I will roll back to the latest stable PHP version and everything should hopefully be hunkydory again.

Otherwise, I would urge you to panic.

I might be in (on PC). I'll wait and see a review or comments from you guys first :)

Oh, do reply when you've played it a few more times. I'm a huge board game geek, and I've been pondering adding this one to the list.

Anyway, here's the news: I'm one week away from beginning the journey into Fatherhood, we're having (non-identical) twin girls. I need to figure out this parenting job as I go along.

Great news! You'll love it. At least over time. Sleep while you still can ;)

Ah, awesome - right up my alley as well. I've been working quite extensively with WPF, but am currently resigned to an older WinForms app until we can create a new version (we acquired an older system with source). We're working on an automated trading system for the energy market (power, gas, oil, carbon emissions, etc.), which is breaking new ground for me, domain wise. It also lets me join in a little on the analytical/data science stuff, which I find really interesting - machine learning in particular.

I'm slightly smitten by .NET Core and Docker at the moment, which of course doesn't really cover the front end. I use Angular for web, with TypeScript to keep my hands off iffy Javascript - at least until ECMAScript6.

Anyway, I would rant about this stuff for ages. Congrats on your new position. If it doesn't work out, come to Denmark - I can find you a job at my company with your background :)

I start a new software engineering position on January 22nd. It pays 8% more than my current software position and is a more senior-level position as well.

I'm going to give my notice at my current company probably on Wednesday.

Congratulations! Working with any particular stack?

We could always start a MySpace....
That is actually a good idea. Hook me up on ICQ or send me a fax, and I'd like to help!

Along that vein... Does the unwashed village have an official leader or membership? I mean - who pays the bills around here??

We are anarcho-syndicalist commune - we elect leaders from within the community every time a non-government, non-coorporation buys a barge.

I pay for the hosting. It's part of an elaborate money laundering / pyramid scheme. For legal reason, you are now officially the owner and CEO of several companies headquartered in Uruguay.

Other than that, I upgrade this board every time we are attacked by spambots and/or during the small windows of time during the hunting season when I'm not drunk or participating in high-stakes spelling bees in Venezuela.

I check the forum regularly, but as you may have noticed, there is not much activity. Pure nostalgia compels me to keep it alive. It's been nearly 18 years since I joined, and I have a lot of treasured memories.

I still have a dream of reviving the community some day. My best plan so far has been to lure people in with bees.

It's "masturbate". Masterbate makes me think of someone who's really skilled at holding their breath.

I'm sure someone out there combines the two in strange ways...
