    That’s why I want an update!

  2. Shook - # October 20th, 2008 at 2:56 am

    I’m sure Data will hurry up if we all jump on his back and start bouncing.

  3. Tomaster - # October 20th, 2008 at 2:39 pm

    If you find the address, I’ll bounce.

  4. Aspect - # October 20th, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    saying we want an update isn’t going to make him work any slower. Your logic is so backwards and stupid. He might not work any faster, but it won’t hurt him at all. Think before you post.

    sorry I was kinda mean there, didn’t really want to make it sound so angry and it wasn’t a personal attack.

  5. Shook - # October 21st, 2008 at 5:14 am

    Ok, instead of ranting about shit that nobody wants to read, i’ll keep it short,
    and hopefully calm. Hurrying on people stresses them. Stress is very uncomfortable.
    Comparable to someone sitting on your back and keep telling you to walk forward.
    And, i dare say, that’s not a nice thing to do. Sometimes, one just wants to
    work with things at ones own pace.
    So, pardon me, you shouldn’t talk about other peoples logic being flawed
    when you have next to no logic yourself.
    But let’s keep on the right topic from here. Agree?

  6. Aspect - # October 21st, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    This is the topic now, so don’t worry about getting off topic.
    I think that Data doesn’t even read these things, so the whole point is moot, but even if he did I doubt it would change anything. Maybe he would post an update. Maybe. Other than that I don’t see it having any effects.
    You’re argument is true if it is a boss riding on you, but we aren’t his boss. It’s like asking a teacher to hurry up and grade the tests so you can see what you got.
    You make it out to seem like we are the teacher and are telling him to hurry up and finish the test so we can grade it.

    I smell a flame war!!!!

    In the one corner, we have Shook, who I’ve vaguely heard of before!
    And in the other corner is Aspect, who I might have heard of before, but I don’t have a very good memory!

    Ladies and Gentleman, place your bets!!!

    Relatively speaking though, the devlog has rather died down over time since that OVER ONE THOUUSAAND comment topic.

    And, on that note, considering how trippin’ ballz that topic was, I think not that some mild pestering will obtain more irritation from him; if he had problems with that posted on his site, theoretically he would have complained/deleted it/done stuff.

    Not that any particular “discuss below” topics are usually given for the dev log anyhow, so we can assume that we are doing it right, and get on with the great debate, spam, etc.

    B22 yeah yeah yeah.

  12. Lamu - # October 24th, 2008 at 1:16 am

    Franchement, c’est pas possible mec ! Tu ne bosses pas !!

  13. Munchkin9 - # October 24th, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    ^ya whats going on, we are waiting for an update here, whats happening have you been working?

    Not that I am rushing you are saying that this is more important than real life, but we could use an update of whats happening at least.

  14. robolee - # October 25th, 2008 at 7:26 am

    I’ll tell you what he’s most likely doing, making a CC build for IGF. The deadline for all IGF submissions is Nov 1st.

    So I think it’s highly likely that is what he is doing, and he’s probably working very hard at it. So I also think that we will get a new build very soon, unless he isn’t entering this year (he has entered every year for the past… 3? years).

  15. Aspect - # October 25th, 2008 at 3:39 pm

    Yeah, I assumed that but I want to know what he wants to get done for igf.
    And he is entering fo sho.
    This year is like the first he actually has some content to show! It’s starting to be more than just an engine. If it doesn’t win something this year, it will deff win something next year

  16. Flying pigs - # October 26th, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    *Confused* So much photos . Where are you Data ? And are you still working on CC i know you’ve been working on it 8 years , but are still working on it , or you do work on that insect whatever it is ?

  22. Geti - # November 1st, 2008 at 2:22 am

    noone wants to wait for the mac build. bloody hell everyone wants it. but ohwell, its apparently coming. somewhere in the netherass of the internets, its coming.

    and grenade, data is still working on CC, as is numgun and i think some other guy. its still getting worked on. ant attack or whatever was a side project, to give the poor man a break πŸ˜›

    And if you haven’t seen…

  31. Tomaster - # November 5th, 2008 at 3:38 pm

    Aight, I wanna take a quick pol here. Who was for President Obama, and who was for McCain?

  32. Tomaster - # November 5th, 2008 at 3:40 pm

    Damn, that should have said poll.

  33. Tendrop - # November 5th, 2008 at 4:43 pm


  34. Aspect - # November 5th, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    I hate it when people say they are “for” someone. You support people. You don’t for people.
    and Obama FTW!

  35. b22 - # November 5th, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    Hate to ruin this, but… B22.

  36. Tomaster - # November 5th, 2008 at 8:27 pm

    I “supported” McCain. Oh well.

  37. grenade - # November 6th, 2008 at 7:57 am

    I didnt support anybody . Heh im from Ukraine . And does b22 will have same requirments as b21 . If yes , im gonna buy some RAM . But i havent lots of good marks in school , and im afraid to ask my dad to buy some RAM .

  38. grenade - # November 6th, 2008 at 8:05 am

    There is a photo . Data said there is russian vodka . IT IS LIEMENT . That vodka “Nemiroff” is Ukrainian vodka ! Ukrainian .

  39. Azukki - # November 6th, 2008 at 6:49 pm

    Aspect, go look up the definitions of “for”.

  40. Aspect - # November 6th, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    hey, it’s just a pet peeve I happened to mention
    and even though for can be used that way doesn’t mean it should.

    and I did look it up, just cus
    in favor of; on the side of: to be for honest government.

    I still think that “honest government” shouldn’t be a person.
    saying, “I am in favor of Obama” or “I’m on Obama’s side” or “I’m an Obama guy” just sound better.

  41. Azukki - # November 10th, 2008 at 5:50 pm

    Yeah I understand the whole pet peeve thing but
    “You support people. You don’t for people.”
    was making it sound like you were correcting it.

  42. Jangorulz - # December 10th, 2008 at 12:06 pm

    Whos pussy was at the end. (lol)
