Actually, in the picture there, it shows that you were writing a new

it's a new POST, it's a newsgroup icon ;-)

Wait and see, im still developing it.. but once its done.. in short..
everything... things im planning for it are...

- Individual Settings for each right w/ citnum and ppw support
- High Security Mode such as avatar Secure, Citnum, PPW Protection, Set Area
Protection. Anti Vandalism and such...
- Site to Site Land build (5 x 5) - Thanks to KAH for helping me learn how
to do that via the examples
- Will have specialist features such as Citnum / Name Sweep (for creating
citname/num lists).
- Keeps track of all data it finds in differnt files so you can call
functions such as "what is the homepage of <World>" to have the bot scan
though the world data it has and find the last recorded webpage it has.
- MultiCommunications - Similar to the telephone bot but might be able to do
some lesser functions of the main bot
- Console mode for running scripts
- AW Word Processor ('<!Begin Dictate!>' / '<!End Dictate!>' etc saved to
file using the bot.
- Popup messages - Audable and visible alerts on the desktop when an event
happens (like in MSN messenger)
- God knows what else, im only just starting it.. getting frames and such
set up (VB6 BTW for those who are interested, thanks to Mr Grimm for the OCX
wrapper ^_^) but as any PK Core member who just happens to be the person who
helps me with my programming will say... there is allong way to go. lol. Who
knows what might turn up.. I have a few suprizes in store (including media
player ^_^)

It's only a picture, I'm using Forte Agent (not the free version)... I
believe that you can download attachments in a mail message by double
clicking on the "idiot.JPG" link in this case which comes up with a
few options, you clikd on LAUNCH and it will load up your defaul
picture viewer...

Hope this helps ;-)

Once THIS puppy is complete and registered, I'd LOVE to have a copy. I've

replace the ol' adage of covering your land, but it WILL help deter those
who choose to deface land you have no intention of covering aside from
laying a road alongside it because you have no other use for it though. :-)

Now, if it could TALK and was able to alter the weather to match the

Get a new newsreader is you don't like it :P I can read his message just
fine in text version you just have to ignore all the code which isn't too
hard. Plus it wasn't any bigger then a normal text message.

Why should he get a new newsreader? Posting HTML does NOT conform with news
standards, having a newsreader that doesn't display it is good, because it
can lead to less HTML posting. My newsreader handles the attachment itself,
but I have to save it to disk and open it in a web browser to read the
message. Am I going to do that? No, if someone want me to read their
message, they can post their message properly, I won't go to the trouble of
saving an attachment then opening it in another app just to read some post!
It's all about standards and nettiquette...

I understand, but i'm just saying if you don't feel like reading sentence
that's readable, although surrounded by some other gibberish, then maybe you
should just ignore it? :) It probably is nice to say this to people who
don't know however...

Actually it wasn't readable, comes up with an icon that you need to
double click on to save and run... It comes up in code when you hit
"reply" and it quoted...

Outlook Express is the worse news reader out there unless you know how
to use it properly. I was using Outlook just recently but finally got
sick of it because of it being so slow in the AW newsgroups...
The reason for it being slow is because I save ALL threads to hard
drive and never delete them so that I can look back to years of
posting. Outlook Express took over 1 minute to change newsgroups or
even close it whilst the community group was listed... It's a bad
program.

I've noticed that some people using outlook express haven't even got
their text WRAPPED which requires us to scroll to the right until the
whole sentance is complete.

Like you say, I ignore html posts; they usually end up on a kill file
if it happens so often.

Forte Agent and Free Agent, are one of the BEST news readers out
there, fast and fully customizable per group...

They also teach you NOT to TOP-POST :) But hey, this is an AW
Newsgroup, everyone does it, even I.

Well smart (no offense) people would only keep a month or twos worth of
posts which is an option in the options menu. I do understand what your
saying but if you use it properly its fine and convenient since my i get my
email int he same program. The text wrapping thing never appear on this
program when i view any mesages i guess it only does that on certain
newsreaders. If you use this reader correctly you can read posts without the
1 minute wait as you said and still be able to see html posts if they are
you wish to download them as long as its small enough or you can shut it off
or just read them as text (i think that is possible).

Anyways, i like outlook express its fine with me.

Something must be askew in your settings or....

Which version of OE do you have??? I have OE 6.0 and I have NO problems
with it. It even decoded those binary attachments in General Discussion
(one of which was mine) without a flaw. :-)

Perhaps you need to start DELETING old threads and posts. I tried doing
this with Eudora and email. Each time my folders got bigger and bigger, the
longer the program took to load. It all adds up...

Outlook Express took over 1 minute to change newsgroups or

See above.

Namely who??

Also does anyone else notice his observations or are his settings off???

Yeah....If you PAY for it.

I think you might wanna run Windows Update Anduin. You might be missing out
on more than you think. :-)

Are you reading properly? I had said "unless you know how to use it
properly" which I did very well know how. I have been using Outlook
Express 6.0. Now I am using Forte Agent, and I see many errors which
I had made and annoyed ppl in usenet groups with because of using
Outlook. I prefer Agent now more than Microsoft's product.

Why delete if another News Reader can save all these threads and run
as fast as light? You do the math. I'm using Forte Agent, it runs like
a dream, and I have thousands of threads saved from the ActiveWorlds
newsgroups.

<snip>

>
>Namely who??

Actually I made an error there. Andras is using Mozilla 4.78, but it's
not wrapping to be readable in all newsreaders. Outlook Express
automatically wraps text, but not all news readers do. This is more of
a traditional one for Usenet groups, so it reads and writes so that
ALL news readers have no problems.

>Also does anyone else notice his observations or are his settings off???

I think you will find that it depends on your news reader and how your
news reader posts to groups...

>
>Yeah....If you PAY for it.

You get what you pay for. Just like Outlook XP, you pay for it when
you pay for Office XP. Though there isn't much difference in it I
believe.

>I think you might wanna run Windows Update Anduin. You might be missing out
>on more than you think. :-)

Windows Update is run daily and automatically on this machine. I'm not
missing a thing :)
