|Oh yeah... scratch that... (before the werewolf game he was not present).|
So, where is McwGog? (or something like that his nickname)
|written by Megagun on Oct 20, 2010 17:01|
|No. Where is *Stargazer*!?|
|He's hiding from you.|
Stargazer did post at Alex's blog a few weeks back though.

|Oooh, Stargazer indeed.. I miss his posts in the Galileo forum... :/ And the shadowsomething guy (not gligar, the other one).|
He, shadowsomething and Skinnymon are the kings of the Galileo section.

I think it's a shame we don't see Alex around here a lot as well, and probably is one of the reasons I'm not around much. Not because that means he's probably not working Noctis V or Lino or Postline, but because I miss ALEX. I love Alex, he's an incredible guy.
I realise that most of the people who are active on the forum now can't fully appreciate this as they weren't around when he was actively involved with the website most of the time, and you see him less as Alex and more as The Guy Who Created Noctis And Lino. There's nothing wrong with that... Until you post on his separate blog to say that you support his incredibly important, lifechanging choices and decisions just so you can add "Finish Noctis, plzzzz!!"
Yeah, that happened. I'm frankly appalled at whoever did this (and was cowardly enough not even to leave a nickname). It's one thing if you want to moan in here about it, but PLEASE; when Alex creates a blog that is very clearly wilfully made to be completely separate from the whole Noctis/ Lino malarky, don't hound him with this stuff there as well!
Show some respect for another human being.

I'm guessing you're referring to this one:
I think I would be quite uncomfortable allowing any Anonymous posts on my personal blog (if I had one), but I suppose that's the Opera Blog default.
|Anonymous writes: *Gives full support!* So, does this mean we'll soon get more Lino and Noctis and Postline etc. etc. updates?|
I also spot a Unicomp Model M in the photo in the top right corner of that page. Top marks for taste.

No, the default is disallowing anonymous comments, mine was an intentional choice: the blog has listening to possible comments among its primary goals.
|I think I would be quite uncomfortable allowing any Anonymous posts on my personal blog (if I had one), but I suppose that's the Opera Blog default.|
To reply to whoever asked, it might incidentally mean there will be updates to mostly everything here, not counting old stuff from the attic or like Crystal Pixels, for example. I'll already have too much to care for with Linoleum, Postline, and the idea for the near-future "catch-all project".

|Can we confirm the Unicomp? I feel, somehow, that this is vital. Vital in the sense, that is, of not being vital at all.|
I'm impressed by the audacity of attempting to subsume a simulator of an entire galaxy into a ""catch-all" project". Sort of grand intentions squared. Will it emulate theological paradoxes and logically impossible positions?
|written by Alex on Dec 01, 2010 14:46|
|Yes, my keyboard's still the same Unicomp Model-M replica seen in the last photograph of the "past and present compys" album. And it's vital for me, as I'm extremely used to the buckling springs' feedback as well as the standard layout of keys such as those scrolling documents (page up, page down), moving the cursor, and to the presence of the insert key (which I regularly use, along with column selection, whenever it's comfortable and adequate while editing source code).|
My catch-all project doesn't seek to be the computer program of the century, but it does seek to include many things I left out from the past, among which Noctis V, a specific client to access this very site's database of posts, chat, c-disk etc, and some sort of virtual playground with no specific objectives except, mostly, having real-time interactive fun.
Logically impossible positions will probably be left to Mary Lou.
|written by Monty on Dec 01, 2010 18:13|
|Couldn't the program include Mary Lou?|
I remember some time back the suggestion of making this site a resource only accessible by a stand alone program, a sort of dedicated browser. Is this related to that "specific client"?
The buckling spring keys cannot be matched for either feedback or [[irritating/reassuring] delete as appropriate] noise.
|written by Alex on Dec 02, 2010 13:58|
|Yes, it's related to that "specific client", with the difference that I intend to maintain the web interface, i.e. Postline, available just where it is now. The catch-all program will just be an alternative way to access the site.|
PS Mary Lou is written in PHP, and I'm lazy enough to not be willing to rewrite her in Linoleum, so I'd prefer to keep her on the server.
