heh... I just finished re-playing all of Diablo I. Yet another activity filed under 'because I won't have time... ever again... come August'


The only thing I ever play is random old Mario games on Wii. I'm thinking about selling it because I doubt I'll have much time to play next year, and as it stands I have lots of time to play and use it once every six months.

I believe we should take a moment and revel in the fact that we've gone from 69 pages on April 14 to our current 75... and the day's not yet over.

Hmmmm... I could see myself doing that. I still have the disc. I was going through my house last week, and found out that I still have the disc to every Blizzard game (except the latest WoW expansion, since I quit playing a while ago).

i interviewed sid meier for work last summer! he's a nice guy. very... dad-like.

That must have been awesome. I don't really know anything about him, except that he puts his name on all his games.

History and Science/Robots as "Uncanny Harbingers of Death" haha - the research was cool; the writing, not so much...

YC just said that his thesis was 104 page AND involved scary statistics! So he's definitely got me beat!

I did econ/poli-sci and I never had to do a thesis. The longest paper I've written is about 10 pages or so.

I wrote a 30 ish page business plan, so I guess that counts for something, but no thesis or anything hard.

All I had was a 40+ page exploration of the Turkish language. So somewhere between business plan and something I have to defend in front of people.

I have lots of stats..so thats how I justify mine being shorter..since its research based and not theory based

you guys with powerpoint are lucky...its just me and my committee (3 profs) at a table tomorrow

they said to just come prepared to talk about it

the lack of direction is nerve wracking

I just found two places where somebody had disagreed/mocked something a person from this thread said, and I found myself charging in for defense almost subconsciously, lol.

lol, I saw that. All I did was post about criticizing gunners in my blog, and someone went on this useless rant, so I had to whip out Admiral Ackbar. Thanks for the support!
