I've been reading old topics and downloading all IM packs(I can't believe missed Ghrey's IM3 entry), and -

I continue to suggest "integration with the game" as a category for judging.

(Because then I get more Quest Pack material, obviously.)

Point.

Heh. Yes, I was wondering who would be the first, and when it would happen.

I suppose now will come the inevitable "Computer-Be-Gone" mod, which does exactly what it says, and then arguing over whether or not it's a legitimate mod, and whether we need a new category on the modlist for hard drive-deletion mods, etc. etc.

I'm pretty sure that anybody trying to use a WeiDU mod to do harms to players is one of the following:
- an idiot
- Sikret
- smart enough to write a .exe to do that on 9x as well.

Back when I was writing in Pascal, our class was hit by the "PRobots" craze. Everybody tried to code the absolutely best robot, that would outrun and outshoot everyone else's. Except me, who coded a robot named "OUCH," whose only instructions were to drive into the nearest wall as hard as it could, while shooting itself in the head. It was unanimously agreed that my robot achieved its goals more successfully and efficiently than anyone else's in the class.

So, respect, y'all.  :pirate

Also, can the deadline be extended to four hours and four minutes for those unfortunate (and/or stubborn) souls who are still on dialup connections?

I believe that there is an unofficial window of time when you can tell JC "I'm sending you my mod through ICQ" and your entry will be accepted.

Yes, between "okay yes I am really sending now" and "Geez, I hope more people than this send me an entry", there is an unofficial and completely arbitrary concept of "stoppage time" tacked on to the end.

I am on dialup too, and I figure I had better set aside a good 30 min for uploading, just to be safe.

Quick question, what is the best way to upload (for those of us without ICQ)?

Uploading a binary in e-mail makes it 25-33% larger than it really is (thus, that much slower), so if speed is a serious consideration, FTP'ing it somewhere and providing me with a link to it is best.

Again, I try to be reasonable about the "end", but those of you on dialup who do not have your own FTP accounts and want one to save a little uploading time, PM me and I will make one up for you for the contest and send you back the details.

Me please, otherwise I will have to toss it up on geocities.

Well, that would certainly work, but all right, you'll have the details with plenty of time to spare.
