Why We War (was Re: Bin Laden's Special Song)

Oct 26, 2001, 1:17am
Unfortunately for you, both you and Henry are in the distinct minority,
as the vast majority of Americans *support* what's going on in
Afghanistan and how our President has been handling all this. (myself
included) Of course, if you think this means that everyone *likes* war,
then you obviously don't know human nature very well.

Very few people *like* warring with other countries and seeing more
innocent (and even not-so-innocent) blood spilled. However, the
terrorist attacks were *far* too severe to just sit back and try to
"talk it out" with the perpetrators. These are not the kind of people
you can "talk to". Osama, and those of his ilk, hate all things American
and view us as the greatest evil this world has ever known. They see us
as "defiling" the world with our Western philosophies. (And if you
honestly believe he attacked us because we support Israel, then you
really need to do some more investigating)

You want to talk about a "repressive society"? Try looking at a country
where women are barely allowed to breathe. The Taliban have made
Afghanistan into a starving nation, where people get shot on the spot
for doing anything that doesn't follow their strict Islamic interpretations.

Now granted, this alone does not grant us an excuse to bomb them into
submission, but the fact that they support and harbor terrorists who
would commit such atrocities means they should no longer be allowed to
operate as such. Hell, we gave them almost an entire month to comply to
our fairly reasonable demands, and all they did was stall. The Taliban
have brought this upon themselves, plain and simple, and we have done
our utmost to ensure that innocent casualties are minimized, while at
the same time trying to show the rest of the Afghan populace that we
don't hate them, just those who oppress them. (Although how well that's
actually working has yet to be seen)

This so-called "War on Terrorism" is not about Americans being
self-righteous. In case you've forgotten, this isn't just about America.
Britain, Germany, France, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and even China, among
others, are all pitching in to help eradicate this evil from the Earth.
And while some may say that trying to wipe out terrorism is a futile
effort, is it any less futile to hope for a world full of "peace and
love"? As long as evil exists in the world, we will never know true
peace. Someone has to take a stand against it and say "Enough is
enough." It's nice to know that at least a sizable portion of the world
community agrees.

So feel free to sit there and contemplate your navel, hoping that the
rest of the world will suddenly have a huge, collective epiphany and say
"Why can't we all just get along?" In the meantime, the rest of us will
be doing what we can to make sure this little gruesome piece of history
doesn't repeat itself...

P.S. And as far as the whole anthrax business goes, our government is
devoting just as much attention to this problem as they are to
Afghanistan. Just because we haven't found out who did it in under a
week doesn't mean we're not working on it. Try looking around and
getting educated on the whole mess before shooting your mouth off, hmm?

Re: Why We War (was Re: Bin Laden's Special Song)

Oct 27, 2001, 10:07pm
Haven't you been paying attention to the news? We *are* taking care of
whatever terrorists are here in America; that's what the FBI is for. The
great thing about our American government is that, like a good computer,
it can *multitask* and do more than one thing at the same time! So while
the FBI is investigating terrorists and anthrax, our military is
fighting the Taliban. (Note how I didn't say "fighting Afghanistan"
because we are *not* at war with Afghanistan. We're at war with the
terrorists *in* Afghanistan and those who harbor and support them.
There's a difference.)

And do you know *why* we're focusing on Afghanistan, hmm? You say that
we should "deal with those here IN THE US that are responsible." Well,
guess what? It's going to be rather difficult to "deal with" these
people when the remains of their bodies are scattered amidst tons of
glass and metal. To put it simply, these people have already been taken
care of, killed instantly with the rest of those airline passengers as
they slammed into buildings (or the ground in PA). Now, it's time to
take care of the people who masterminded the whole plot, who,
coincidentally, are NOT in the US, but in Afghanistan.

The rest of the American public seems to be able to distinguish between
being at war with terrorists and being at war with an entire country.
Why can't you?

And as far as sentencing goes, the attacks go *far* beyond any crime
ever committed by an American criminal. (even Oklahoma City and
Columbine put together) Not only that, but most crimes can have various
motives that can lessen the sentence and other such ambiguities.
However, the attacks of Sept 11th could only have one motive: hatred.
There is no ambiguity here; we all know who is guilty and we have all
the evidence we would ever need. The only thing left to do is convict
the criminals. For a crime of this magnitude, there can only be one
sentence: Death. And whether the sentence is carried out via a war
tribunal, or a soldier's rifle in Afghanistan, they WILL be brought to
justice. Perhaps then, we all, Americans and Afghans alike, can truly
know peace.

When's the last time you heard anyone complaining about AW Ear, saying
it had wiped their hard drive or crashed their computer? When AW Ear
first came out, people were downloading it and using it all over the
place, and Radon was actually sincere about its success. It's
unfortunate that someone like that can go so wrong so quickly. The
saddest part was that he was actually proud of his actions and actually
expected to get *rewarded* for it. Such a shame... :(

Still, you all have seen what Radon is capable of, and *not* capable of.
Face it, he was just a script kiddie who managed to fool some people
with his other programs. I think you give Radon way too much credit when
you say he's capable of making a program as malicious as wiping out files.

Universe greeting

Oct 31, 2001, 10:40pm
Here's an idea that could solve the problem; and subsequently become
AWC's "Next Big Thing": NetWorlds^(TM)! Halfway between a World package and
a Uniserver, this package deal allows you to buy multiple worlds and
control all of them via a simple application. Not only would this allow
people with multiple worlds to manage them all better, but it would also
supply a Uniserver with a way of categorizing worlds (leading to a
categorized Worlds tab! woo!)

Plus, If something like this were in effect, then AWC could take all the
AWC-owned worlds and put them in an AWC NetWorld and then have a
NetWorld message that would be displayed before an individual world
message. Then, the Uniserver message could strictly be for Universe-wide
important announcements. (NOT advertisements)

Wow, I must have just sounded like JP there for a sec... That was scary!

Universe greeting in general

Nov 1, 2001, 11:55am
I think I'm going to have to agree with Ananas on this one. Granted,
spam advertising is annoying, regardless of where it shows up, but it
only shows up once. After that, you never see it again, and if you start
in a place like AWGate or AW GZ, then that Universe message disappears
pretty quickly.

Look at it this way: The only time the Universal message would appear in
a private world would be if someone set that world as their starting
point. Presumably, if that happens, then that person has been to this
world before and is used to whatever "atmosphere" the world contains.
Visitors to the world, however, won't see the Universal message, because
they already saw it when they first logged in somewhere else in the
Universe. Therefore, you don't have to worry about visitors getting
"suckered" into clicking an unwanted link or getting pulled away from
your world, and I would think anyone who was willing to set a private
world as a start world would much rather be there than wherever AWC is
advertising in the Universal message...

Now if only we can get them to limit the Universal message to
*important* things! :P

changing default browsers

Dec 18, 2001, 2:28am
Since uninstalling IE all together is probably not an option, try this:

In Netscape 6, go to Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> System. There
should be two boxes, one talking about handling file types and one
talking about handling protocols. In the first box, be sure HTML is
checked, as well as any other file formats you want NS to handle. In the
second box, be sure to check HTTP, HTTPS, and whatever other protocols
you want NS to handle (I would suggest all of them, unless you use a
separate program for FTP, like CuteFTP).

After all that, check the box at the bottom that says "Alert me if other
applications change these settings". Then, click Ok to save the changes,
close the browser, and restart your computer. If all goes well, NS
should now act as your default browser.

Another thing you can do is go into Control Panel -> Internet Settings
-> Programs and make sure the box labeled "Internet Explorer should
check to see if it is the default browser" is *un*checked. Lemme know if
this helps...

strange stuff i find out just now

Dec 26, 2001, 10:59am
One of the first things anyone should do when they're running out of HD
space is to clean out your temp folders. The reason they're called
"temp" is because they're supposed to be temporary. Unfortunately, some
programs (like your virus scanner, apparently) are naughty and don't
clean up after themselves, leaving huge amounts of data in the temp
folders to just collect dust (and more data).

So, in answer to your question, YES! Clean that sucker out ASAP! And
while you're at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder and
any caches you may have (i.e. AW, Netscape, etc).

Ugh, you got his drivel too? He must've sent that to every person who's
ever posted in the NGs.

As for what was actually said, he once again has demonstrated his
amazing talent to say a lot about nothing. I think we've long since come
to the conclusion that the so-called problems with 3.2 are on the user's
end, not AWC's, and as for his porn site comparisons, well, let's just
say apparently some things never change. :P

The main problem with his entire argument (if you can call it that) is
that he, along with a lot of other people who have similar arguments,
seem to like lumping AW in with other things (i.e. Sims, Everquest, and
now apparently porn sites *boggle*).

Newsflash, people: AW is not The Sims. AW is not Everquest. AW is like
nothing else out there. Some call it a chat room, some call it a
platform for artistic expression, and some call it an entire
sub-culture. The great thing about AW is that it's all of those things,
and then some. There's no end to the possibilities that can be
accomplished with the AW idea, which makes it a unique beast in today's
3D market.

Now, whether that uniqueness is worth entering a credit card number in
order to try it out remains to be seen. While I do agree that entering a
CC number isn't exactly the most inviting way to great potential
customers, I do understand that it's just about the only way AWC can
guarantee that people don't try and leech off them (i.e. stay a tourist
forever). So rather than piss and moan about how much AWC sucks and
throw a fit saying "I'm leaving and AWC better care about it!!", why not
try to do something constructive and come up with *reasonable* solutions
to these problems. I'd like to think AWC would be more willing to listen
to those than the endless string of complaints...

In case *you* didn't notice, AWC revised their pricing plan based on
*our* constructive criticism. I'd say that's a good indication that
their willing to listen to our ideas more than our complaints.

If you visit said site, it will answer his question easily enough. No
sense overloading the newsgroup server with all that's happened since he

Maya isn't free on Macs any more than it's free on PCs. The only thing
that's free is the trial version, for which there are both PC and Mac
versions. But from what I hear, the Mac version of Maya is shit, so it's
not even worth it. :P

Surely you jest! The day Macs can do 3D as well as NT is the day I kill
myself. :P All I know is what I've heard, and what I've heard is that
the Mac version of Maya is crap. As far as I know, Maya for Macs is only
a recent thing, though I could be wrong. In fact, if you look at the PLE
site, it states that the Mac version will *only* work with Mac OS X,
whereas on a PC it will work with anything from NT to XP (excluding the
9x series, of course). Sounds to me like the Mac version is more recent
than the PC version...

At any rate, the PLE is the demo version I was talking about... It'll do
everything that Maya Complete can do (not to be confused with Maya
Unlimited), but it puts a watermark on everything you render, and you
can only use the PLE proprietary file format. There's a reason why it's
free. :P

Graphics cards actually do very little when it comes to rendering.
Rendering is mostly all processor, so having a dual processor set-up can
definitely reduce your rendering time. And networking PCs is just as
easy as networking Macs, if not more so. What do you think "Windows NT"
stands for? :P
