    Agreed, but a general rule I followed is in generous commenting. Doesn't need to be a tome; just enough so that a competent programmer could understand.

    I always put a tombstone at the top as well to tell the developer what the overall purpose of the module is, when it was written, who wrote it, and what, if any, external dependencies it had.

    Is it possible that the game is finished and Cleve is marketing magician and is building up the hype?

    Is there no hackers on the codex?Couldn't someone hack his pc and download all his porn history and then blackmail him to release the game?

    It's a toss up. Someone as autistic as Cleve might be into some really weird shit, or he might have no interest in porn at all.

    Ann Coulter
    What a fantastic woman. What a marvellous breath of fresh air.

    Can't believe the girl is single, most men have dreamed about women like this their whole life. After you get old enough, you stop believing such women exist, anywhere. You start to get older and you realize you are never going to meet these fantastic women, you are going to have to compromise or remain alone your whole life.

    If she had a face like a bulldog she'd still be a 50000 watt sexual buglight, but she is astonishingly beautiful physically.

    Sometimes I like to think that there were a lot more women like this around 30 or 40 years ago.

    ***

    23/8/02

    Why is it so important to break away from this and why is it a "stereotype?" Women have six times as much oxytocin in their bloodstream than men on average. They are radically biochemically, genetically and physically different from men on nearly every level measurable by science. They are genetically engineered to be wives and mothers and here you are saying fish shouldn't be fish, they should learn to play air hockey. Who was it that put this crazy idea in your head? I don't think you're even smart enough to figure out the answer to that question ... but I'll bet Ann Coulter could.

    If you want to see really bleak human misery and grief, you should see a 40 year old childless career woman ... a creature who is a genetic dead end, who has no further role to play in the world biologically and is simply waiting to die. The big cities are full of these tragic hags. The western world itself is full of these ruined, bitter women who traded their lives away for some sick dream the media sold them on ... they could have been running through the park with a dozen children barefoot with the man they love but instead you see them at nights in Starbucks staring out the window into infinity sipping their little cocoa flavored capuccinos as their brains desperately crave the natural anti-depressive hormones their bodies are designed to get from a normal sexual relationship with a man.

    You don't realize you are demonstrating what I said above is correct. You don't realize why. This is why I did not see any women I was interested in until I was 30 years old. I see no evidence I made any mistake in avoiding women altogether that long. I think in retrospect it was a mistake for me to even speak to any women during that period, they weren't worth my time. I'd say Ann Coulter is proof I was right.

    >Christ, you should meet my mother to disabuse you of this notion!

    Is she sitting in Starbuck's right now, dabbing at her mascara and nibbling at her little biscuit as her womb shrivels up to resemble a piece of dried out beef jerky? Maybe her eyes tearing up as she remembers all those abortions she had in her teens?

    Bzzzztt ... sorry, white European women, but we do have some lovely consolation prizes for you - maybe in the next universe you'll get another chance to get it right, you bio-failure! If you'll follow our lovely hostess through the doorway into oblivion, you'll meet your fellow failures, the dodo and the dinosaurs! Say hello to the black well of eternity ... it's a long, long, long time.

    I am woman, hear me scream ... forever!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you actually implying a 'thal brain needs some quest compass left behind by his past self? It likely exists in all time streams at once, ffs.

    Comments and structuring is for dumb saps who can't tie their shoelaces without instructions.

    This meltdown surely gave some great material. I can imagine Cleveland sitting at some big corporate office having a call with important clients who pay for expensive services and yelling to them: "Come back when you are blowing brain cells out in explosive diarrhea that can score above average just by weight on an IQ test and we'll talk more. Until then you're just a primate pursuing biological game strategy to seem like you know what you are talking about. You don't. If you did you'd be working on your own game."!

    He is not from english speaking country. $10k from a non-english speaking country (probably eastern or southern europe country considering codex audience) is the level of $50k+ a month programmer in USA.

    This is accurate. He's the kind that gets endless waves of letters trying to get him hired. Everyone seems to need experienced and fanatical rubyists here, heh. The payment roof's been hit some time ago, so he is contemplating moving to glorious US and A, yay.

    Yeah, it's no wonder everybody moves to California if they have no children (huge expenses for school and esp. university if they are too dumb to get the scholarship, but in that case the procedure outlined below should be followed) or their own business.

    I regret even replying to them but it was just too much hearing from people who have never shown up for a job with clean underwear claim my scripting code was amateurish or a hack. It was no such thing. It's beautiful in reviewing it.

    You need to be more careful with your potential clients. You just can't insult people like this all the time. It's almost as if you don't even want Grimoire to sell. I thought Phil Fish was pretty rude towards his audience but at least he released a game.

    What's funny about this is that I have worked on plenty of public domain code from NASA - most of it is crap that looks like it was authored by a child. Notable exception is the CLIPS AI Expert system integrated into CD-OS.
