Unwashed Village / RIP Varag
« on: November 03, 2021, 05:09:06 AM »
For those who haven't heard, Mike Garoni, AKA Varag, died of cancer late September.

The Village has gotten a bit darker.

/sprinkles some more necromancy on here.

The only real way to see a more lively community would most like to either make a Discord or a Guilded server. Lot easier to post/communicate but that'd be if people still wanted to on a day by day basis.

Just my 2 cents, nothing against web forums as I do kinda miss the old days of the internet!
I've been thinking something similar. Web forums are kind of a dead thing.

Even the Straight Dope message boards went to Discord. Though, they customized it to be very message-board style rather than MS-Teams or Slack style as most Discord communities seem to be.

Discord can work fine as forum software if the features are set up correctly.

The Straight Dope message boards use Discord and have been for many months now.

And we have a handful of new registrations waiting for approval since that posted.

However, it's rather difficult to distinguish between the bots that auto register here and the non-bots.

Liz and I closed on a condo on April 30.

We'll be officially moved as of this Friday.

That's seriously fucked up.

I remember how cool I thought it was that MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson) voiced Killian and Freddie Brooks from A Different World (Cree Summer) voiced Tandi.

And I remember the first time Ian shot me in the back. It would be the first of many times.

And then he trapped me on the bridge that one time and I hadn't saved in a while and lost a lot of progress when I had to reload.

Ian was a dick when you think about it.

New year to you as well.

It'll be hard-pressed to be worse than the last year for the world as a whole. (Liz and I did all right last year.)

Good to see you, Petrarch.

Glad to hear the family's doing well.

I'll be 30 in a few months. It doesn't matter to me much. The weirdest thing is how many people I knew from highschool are married with families now.

I'm 44, and there's at least one grandparent from my high school class, and most of the others have children. (I graduated from a small public school of 206 students; there were 46 in my class, which was the smallest of the four classes. The freshman class had around 75 students.)

I don't even have kids yet...though Liz and I are planning on starting this month. She's 38, due to our age we're pretty much getting to the "now or never" stage.

Maybe with Obsidian back in the picture (AKA some of the guys from Interplay who made FO1 and FO2, and later went on to make FO:NV) we can get a sequel to FO:NV or at least FO:5 won't feel like a FPS with RPG elements as FO4 did.

I picked up miniature painting as a hobby, which is a very relaxing non-electronical passtime.

There are indoor pastimes that don't involve gaming?

That posts looks like it's having a rough go of things.

So for those of you, who like 'so bad they're good' movies, the name James Nguyen may stick out to you. He's the creator of such films as Birdemic, Julie and Jack and the long lost Replica.

He has since come out of the woodworks with another utopian vision, which basically promises us human immortality.

Is he going to make Julie and Jack's VR Ghost program a reality? Or Replica's cloning technology a retirement plan?

You'll have to forgive me for not putting much faith in it, regardless. If he can't make exploding CGI birds look realistic (from more than a distance!), I dunno if I trust him with my body or immortal soul.

Maybe I'm wrong though, could James Nguyen be the TRUE founder of the Institute?

The site does mention using nanobots to extend human life. I guess we'll all be cyborgs in the future.
