store items
« on: October 07, 2003, 07:16:13 PM »
was just looking at the store items, and I just have to ask who it was that determined the "infant Creeper" should be named after me?  

I would be ROFLMAO if it wasn't for the fact that someone is playing their RAP really loud.  Oh where are my earplugs when I need 'em.

Nik did the naming.  I was going to take all the names off but I am lazy and busy.

I think the names are hilarious!  I mean who doesn't want a pair of Mor Ephrem Boxershorts or Serge's Seeing Eye ball cap or Samer's New World Order Journal!

On second thought, it's probably a clever idea to get each person to buy their item.  C'mon Joe, you need a creeper. hehe

I think it's a clever idea.  There was some thought behind it, I noticed that Linus7 has a clock, presumably to catch tardy students as they scurry into class :)

When Nik first created the store, he made "Bobby's Thong." Nevertheless, Anastasios deemed it inappropiate so it is no longer there. Safe to say, there is no way I will purhase or wear one of those.

Yeah Nik did that as a joke to compensate Bobby for some of his poor humor in the past ;-) but I was like UH NO and it was gone in about 3 minutes.

David:

As long as it was a fellow cubs fan who got it.  BTW, wasn't that some game last night?  

Umm, I think they'll have to make those creepers just a bit bigger before I get them.  instead of being 3-6 months, I'm 6'3":)

Hehehehehehehehehehehhehehehehehehehehehhehehehehehhehehehehehehhehehehehhehhe

HMM, I wonder if the fact that I got the Infant Creeper is saying that I am a)  too slow moving or b) just plain creepy?

Gee,

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I quite touched that I am included in the named items with the mousepad.  It must be because, lacking photographic evidence of my existance at the picnic, I am only real via the computer.  ;D

Re David's last post here, I have just heard my eldest son playing in the living room with a friend make some crashing noises and then

"Hasta la vista, Baby!"

"It's the governor of California!!!"

I didn't know that he was that aware of the election since we don't watch network news and don't live in that state.  AND he's never seen a Terminator movie either.  (Yes, it's true, we control what our children see and read.... We're "censoring" them!  :P :D ;D)

And I will ask again -

IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A SALTIRE INSTEAD OF THE 'THING' THAT IS THERE ?

Hey we have got there - thanks whoever fixed it for me to manage to get my Saltire - and a very BIG TAAA - to the guy who pointed out that some things had changed - so now I'm a happy bunny

Thanks for your somewhat fed up sounding support Anastasios :D

Why can Andministrators have flags of countries in which they are not resident on display - whilst those of us in a country with a recognised Flag have to have another countries one .

Sorry - I'm just feeling hard done by after my disappointment about Divine Liturgy in Lourdes this year  :( :(

Angela,

In fairness to Bobby he will have to rewrite part of the code to do that for you because the people who created the program obviously don't view Scotland as a nation in its own right (!).  Anyway, he assures me that he will eventually do it, but he can't promise when.  For him to have the Indian flag was simple because the Indian flag was already in the software's repetoire if that makes any sense.

It's OK Anastasios - I do understand and Bobby and I have spoken about it .

He says he will do it when he can - and I'll hold him to that ;)

We Nats are a wee bittie sensitive to some things ;)

I suppose it would be too much to ask for to have the third national flag of the CSA on mine???????  Just joking, although I do feel slightly offended that the flag of the opressor is under myname...... ;)

Dustin:

What do you mean "the people who created the program??"

I designed the flag system from scratch.

If you'd like I will tell you all the things I wrote MYSELF:

Who's Online
Smiley Code
Text parsing
Flag System
Calendar
Searching mechanics
75% of the admin panel code is my own.
"Moods"
Bookmarks
"Listening to"
revamped all the SQL code
Template selector
Subboards
Access Control Lists
User management features
Shoutbox
Quick-reply
Offline reader
revamped instant messaging
User warning/banning system
Fixed userlist
Member map
Working on offline reader


Sorry If I seem flipped out, I have invested a lot of time and energy into code that IS MY OWN!!! I invest a signficant deal of time behind the scenes to make sure the board is working properly and efficiently. I have rewrote over 50% of the original board code, and can safely call it my own.

Thanks,
Bobby

In fact according to the GPL, I can copyright sections that are mine.
If that is what this requires, then I will follow through with what is necessary.

Dearest Bobby,

I didn' t know you devised the flag thing yourself, dude.  I mean it's hard to know what we got from the upgrade and what you made yourself. Thanks for the list.
