  1. Happy birthday, buddy!

      Hehehe, I guess that I spoiled it a few moments before :P

      He had mentioned it on IRC.

      Yep, we all know now. :P

  3. I have around 50 hours on this game and I am liking it. I have learned about it just recently, so I avoided the hype train. I came to the game without any expectations, so I guess that this was why I was able to enjoy it. I am also glad that I have spoiled me about what happens when you get to the center of the galaxy, so I will not be disappointed and I know that I don't have to rush there, I can just enjoy the exploration part. I found out that I had the most fun with some self-imposed challenges. I once got a new ship in an extreme planet, the sentinels just attack you on sight there plus the planet was very toxic; I needed to get supplies to fix and refuel the ship under those circumstances, and it was quite daunting and rewarding. Sometimes I decide to actually walk a large distance to some building, instead of just quickly doing by ship; dealing with the terrain, battling the sentinels, and looking for rare resources along the way also make it more rewarding. I saw someone people on Reddit commenting that the game got much better and challenging for them after ditching the scanner, and having to find resources by exploration. I haven't tried this myself yet, however.
  4. I can 100% relate with this, I used to do the same thing when it happened more often with me Anyways, I don't think that I was ever able to make a sound, let alone to say anything. And it is also difficult to know when you are actually seeing someone, or you are just imagining something. It happened a couple of times with me that I was hearing the phone or the door bell to ring, just to wake up in a hurry and see that they were not ringing for real. I may also listen to other noises, for example once I heard a colleague from college talking, like if he was in the next room, but I knew it was not real because he didn't live with me. I can also listen to TV noises, when it is actually turned off.
  5. Ken Penders is walking in circles around The Lara Su Chronicles for years now. There is some new art once in every blue moon, but truth be told there was no considerable progress since the settlement with Archie. This makes to imagine that his whole legal brouhaha was never about making his story, but rather about making a point. Though which point exactly is anyone's guess. Or it could be just that he works better when he is under the direction of an editor and deadlines, when he is on his own he seems to not know how to manage time and resources in an effective manner, and never gets anywhere. Better advice that I heard about witting is to write often and prolifically, and also to read a lot. By the time in which an amateur writer have spent years polishing a single chapter of his "magnum opus", a professional writer have already published lots of stuff and made lots of money.
  6. It used to happen pretty much every day when I was in middle school and to a lesser extent high school. After that they became gradually less frequent, and by now I think that the last time it happened with me was a couple of months ago. Interesting part is that my mood varies depending on the episode, usually I am very relaxed but sometimes, for no apparent reason, I am desperate. Like if something bad is just around the corner. Sometimes I feel like it is difficult to breathe, I don't know if this is real or me imagining stuff, but in such circumstances I force to wake up just in case. I found the cases to be correlated to stress, like when I feel under more pressure or close to some deadline, they happen more often. I also found out that praying to God during the cases also help it to end quicker and me to get calmer. It was difficult at first to remember in the cases I were desperate, but I prayed before sleeping so I could remember. It was when I started praying when the episodes became very rare. To be honest, by now I would say that they have stopped.
  7. Happy Belated Birthday.

      Thank you very much!

      Sorry for taking long to reply, I had not been much active here. But I really appreciate your wishes :)

      Take good care!

  9. The End of Forum thread on BKC somehow got lost in the forum closing, and with it went the farewell posts of plenty of people, and also the link for the download of the forum backup. I was the one who made the backup, and I have managed to recover all the posts from my backups. Here is the link to the backup: http://1drv.ms/1JCHbIL Note that I placed the lost posts also in a separate file, for the sake of convenience. I also noticed that that the images uploaded to BKC were also lost, but I can recover most of them through a backup of January 7th 2016, that I have on my computer. I will upload them to the above backup once I have finished digging them up .
  10. The numbers from volumes 1 and 2, I got from the yearly reports instead of the monthly ones (which are somewhat bigger than the figures of the launch month). I would do the same for volumes 3 and 4, but they not even appeared in their respectively yearly reports, so I guess that their sales didn't increase much in the following months..
  11. So I was browsing ancient sites about Archie Sonic, and I found an interesting excerpt written by Ken Penders. It is from an online editorial for the Archie website. This part has got my attention (source, my emphasis): From: http://web.archive.org/web/19980109135030/http://archiecomics.com/sonic/editor.html I find it to be particularly ironic, especially considering the events that would unfold years later...
  12. I already did a couple of backups, which are available to download in the Death Throes thread (link to post). The latest one is from April 2015, though. Ian was not only fine with those backups, but also very pleased (he had contacted me in private back then). But this time I want to do something different: making the backup available in a browsable format, instead of you having to download the entire thing. I am still looking into how I am going to accomplish it. As we speak, I am running an automated program to find and save all the publicly available pages of the forum, and after it is done I will look into ways to make it available on the web. For now, this is only a test run to see if everything works well, I am going to run the program again once the forum is closed in order to get all its content. I still have not contacted Ian, I should do that by his contact email listed on the main site. I did it last time I backed up the content.
  13. I will be up to it once the forum is closed for new posts, so I will be sure of archiving absolutely everything. Then I will upload the archive somewhere and make it browsable. I already did some backups of the forum, which are on the Death Throes thread. This time the difference is that I will upload it somewhere and make it browsable, instead of you having to manually download it first. I still have to look into how I am going to accomplish this, though. Anyways, I guess I am going to talk with Ian first to see what he thinks about it.
