Re: 1067: "Pressures"

Im a programmer. And I've been reading this thread in fascination for months now. I can't imagine ANYBODY would want to waste their time coding for Steve. He's not rational - walk away! Fast! He's up there with conspiracy theorists, Raelians, 9/11 deniers, anti-vaccination groupies and those who fea...

Re: 1108: "Cautionary Ghost"

Sad as it may seem, this kind of verbal death has been going on long as there have been words. Best recent example (mentioned in passing already): unique We all know it simply no longer means "the only example of its kind in existence". It just doesn't mean that anymore. There's now no way...

Re: 1101: "Sketchiness"

Aussies say "dodgy" too (we're just the brits they didn't want, after all) - though in the context of the comic we'd say "creepy" I think.

Re: 1101: "Sketchiness"

Oh and weighing into the "American" thing.... its because thats what "Americans" call themselves and the place they live. As in "God Bless America" "America is the greatest country on Earth" ...etc etc et ad nauseum. (Yes thats right, those of us in TROTW aren...

Re: 1101: "Sketchiness"

Re: 1002: "Game AIs"

However, I find it interesting that there are rarely discussions centered around the computational methods of human computing engines. They are...
