(do Descent Bosses have a gender?) This is English, which means you don't have to give it a gender (thank god). That just takes all the fun out of it. :lol: Upgraded to 1.15.110, reloaded my saved spot just before going into the Red room, cloaked and ran in taking out the drillers and red hulks as ...

Just for giggles, I loaded up that level and played up to the Boss. I took my usual tactic which is to cloak and then run around picking off the drillers and red hulks ... then I go for the Boss. By then, the Boss has already tried a few shots at me as I'm popping in and out of his/her view (do Desc...

I can listen for hours to Scheherazade Opus 35 (Nicolai Rimsky - Korsakov) and my all-time favorite recording of it was performed by the Symphony Orchestra of Prague. My parents had it on a LP record and I listened to it many times as a kid (in between Beatles, Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, and Kansas .....

and because in my line of work I am constantly going to other people's computers and trying to adjust from using a "standard" keyboard layout to the ergonomic and then back again, is very unpleasant. Using ergonomic keyboards with the proper hand position (wrists up in the air, not down r...

Use an ergonomic keyboard and mouse (e.g. Microsoft Natural Keyboard). I (personally) despise the "ergonomic" keyboards because using them tends to encourage the user to have poor hand position ... the same poor hand position that encourages carpel tunnel ... and because in my line of wor...

Yeah, the downloads section of the new site is a bit ... spartan ... but mostly because a lot of things were available elsewhere (until now). Thankfully, nearly all missions are still available elsewhere (as described in my earlier post). The rest will have to be accumulated again. Hopefully people ...

The end of PlanetDescent.com ?

For those who are interested ... It would appear that PlanetDescent.com has come to an end. A recent corruption of the database forced all active content to be unavailable.

and no I do not think the KDE desktop looks pretty much like Windows 7 ... far from it. It doesn't out of the box. I forgot to mention I tweaked it a "little" bit :wink: Now I wish there was a "curious" smilie ... you want to share what you did to tweak it a "little"?
