Forum Games / Whaleware Browser Naming Competition
« Last post by ChelonianEgghead on March 28, 2019, 08:04:30 PM »

Due to the many controversies surrounding Mozilla Firefox over the last several years - including Australis, Photon, Looking Glass, Pocket, Telefonica, EME, the removal of the RSS reader, and the discontinuation of XUL - Whaleware OS cannot reasonably continue to use it as the pre-installed browser. Therefore, the next version of Whaleware OS will come with a fork of Firefox developed by our talented team of whales at Whaleware Inc. We may also borrow code from other projects, possibly including Chromium, Brave, SeaMonkey, Waterfox, and Pale Moon.

While you wait, there's one thing we'd like to ask of you: a proper name for this endeavor! Unfortunately, few can understand the ultrasonic language of our whales, so we need human volunteers to provide an English name for the project. The beta is called Cetus, to honor the Mozilla tradition of naming software after mythical beasts. Also, the Debian maintainers have decided to call the their version "IceFish", after this little guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channichthyidae Still, we need something whale-ier for the release version. The winner will receive a free copy of the beta on French toast a full two months before release, a complimentary mug and T-Shirt, a lifetime subscription to our newsletter, and free upgrades forever - no need to ever buy another version! So what are you waiting for?

Just to give you some ideas, here's some of our favorite web software and technology names:
Firefox (duh), Phoenix, FireBird, Minotaur, Thunderbird, Timberwolf, Waterfox, IceCat, IceWeasel, IceDove, IceApe, Pidgin, Firebug, Basilisk, Gecko, Goanna, and Kraken.

Good luck all, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

Sincerely,

The Whaleware Human-Whale Relations Team

P.S. The next version of Whaleware OS will include a global dark mode and blast processing support!

Hello and welcome aboard the USS Zorcher!  :whale  To your left you will see the majestic, yet endangered, Nerd Whale, it's numbers are slowly declining due to jocks harpooning it for it's lack of meat and lack of fat. Be sure to read the board rules if you can find them, check out the fan projects at http://www.chexquest.org/index.php?board=53.0 and hang out on Discord at https://discord.gg/saAceDH

Just a few things you should know:

1). Avoid the West Wing at all costs because there have been sightings of evil purple lampposts that will eat your soul.

2). Always carry ginger ale with you to ward off the purple lampposts. THE WEST WING IS STILL OFF LIMITS.

3). Never, EVER feed Loremaster after midnight! Just don't!

On the topic of new missions, you're probably aware of Chex Quest 3 at http://www.chucktropolis.com/gamers.htm An old user named xbolt made a three-episode mod called "Newmaps" available at http://xboltz.net/newmaps.html https://www.provillus.org/ The Ultimate Chex Quest is a project by Boingo the Clown to create a 4-episode IWAD consisting of the original two Chex Quests and 22 original levels (no secret levels, sadly) to create what a full-fledged Chex Quest megawad could have looked like, with a number of modern enhancements. You can download it at http://www.doomlegends.com/chexquest/tucq.html Unfortunately only the original two games are included in the current release, but work is underway to at least expand the first episode to 8 missions, and it shouldn't be too hard to convert an old submission into an E2M6. Strife also made some really good levels which require TUCQ to run, of which you can find an updated version at http://www.chexquest.org/index.php?topic=5332.msg195627#msg195627

Good one. I didn't know that Chex Quest 3 exists. The game brings back old memories from my youth. I'll give it a try. Thank you for the urls.  ;)

Forum Games / The Groaner Thread, New Edition
« Last post by Boingo the Clown on March 25, 2019, 11:53:06 PM »
About a year before New DooM shut down, I created a thread called "The Groaner Thread" for users to write down their own original jokes and funny stories.

In honour of that thread, I am going to start a new thread to do more of the same.

There are only two rules (aside from the usual rules of this forum):

1.) Each joke must be an original joke  by you--NOT a joke you heard on TV or heard from one of your friends.  It must be one of your own.

2.) It must be a groaner.

Okay?

Are you ready?

Here goes!


  • Today I made a flower necklace out of corn chips.
    I call it my "Frito Lay".


  • Q. How many times did the German man say "No"?

    A. Nine.


  • Conan got tired of swinging a sword around and decided to go to hairdressing school.
    Now he's Conan the barber.


  • Q. Why was the boat upside down in the hat shop?

    A. He was getting his cap sized.



Knock yourselves out!

Custom built:


Intel 8700k processor (6 core / 12 threads, 3.70 Ghz)
32 GB DDR4 RAM
2 1TB Samsung NVME M.2 SSDs
1 2TB HDD
GTX 2070
GTX 1070
Bunch of USB hub PCIe cards (used for VMs, see below)
Buncha LEDs, because RGB


I'm running Unraid as the OS (a VM hypervisor), which lets me run multiple VMs using multiple screens at once (and I plan to use Synergy to share keyboard/mouse across the VMs). The plan is to have a main Linux VM, a Windows VM solely for running games that I can't get to run in Linux, and a 3rd smaller VM to run on the touch screen for utility (for music, videos, etc). Atm only have a few of these VMs setup; need to sit down sometime and get the rest setup.


For audio, I've got 3 Shiit Modis (https://www.schiit.com/products/modi-1) - one for each VM - that output into a mixing board which then terminates at my headset. I also run the mic through another channel in the board back up to whatever VM is running Discord/etc.

That would explain why I am wet from the armpits down.

Maybe next time I will wear water wings.

Big bump, but someone actually has done a pacifist run (without even zorching the flembrane):
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6Tdc6GMqFE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6Tdc6GMqFE</a>
He provoked infighting and used a weird clip to get past the flembrane at the end.
