Second both above posts.
My idea - get rid of the gremlins for good and ever.

The only real option for eradicating our nuisance population of gremlins is to completely restructure these halls and shift them, slightly, out-of-synch with the surrounding temporal Prime.

[In other words, what we intend to do with Candlekeep 2.]

You probably decided to add that title to your profile months ago.....then forgot.....got reminded of it........put it off until you had a chance to compose a oboe and pan flute driven theme song for your new title....only to forget again until Wooly or I reminded you again


Oh , and if SageMan answers his PMs more in a more timely manner than "The Sage"'.......that would be good

You know, I went off to bed last evening with the thought that I'd forgotten something Candlekeep-related.

The Sellplague began, for all intents and purposes, in the dominions of the Corporation. Greed murdered Good Design, unraveling common sense in the cosmos and destroying her dominion. At the same time, Sales Fears and Warcraft Envy happened into alignment. This cataclysmic coincidence led to upheaval, shaking apart the primeval order, opening up holes in wallets, and reshaping everything...

Sorry Red, I know it's an incredible annoyance to be faced with this problem.

I'm still looking into why some scribes, like myself, aren't even facing this issue with their own accounts. I hope to have a more solid answer for you soon. [SageTime pending, of course ]

Just to mention it, I have the same problem with the 20 messages max. It is a bit strange that its not universal to all of us.

I'll be sending it to you today, now that I've converted it from SageNotes to regular .doc format.

SageNotes? Do you also have SageSheet and SageBase to go along with that?

Almost. My proto- SageSheet* and SageBase* programs are proving to be somewhat more uncooperative than SageNotes.

Walker, my PM box has been full since about three days after I joined this site.

It doesn't stop me from receiving new ones, and if you want to send to someone else, merely click on their name (usually in the PM area, but you can do it anywhere) and hit 'PM this user' - its a great work-around.

Cool, I will try to sneak around the SageGremlins and try that!


P.S. I wonder what you do to inspire so many

P.S.S. you should change your email to OldGrognard@Grognardia.com

To be honest, I hadn't yet reached the point of "naming"" them. The program architectures for both applications are still in their infancy. So I thought it somewhat presumptuous to "name" them before their completion.

Ye gods, I've watched too much Tron. I'm picturing all these digitized versions of Sage running through the 'net and stuff.

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

You wouldn't be too far off the mark. Tron is one of my favourite films. And it's where I originally got some of my ideas for a Computer Programmer PrC. Plus, it's got Bruce "Get the Hell out of our Galaxy" Boxleitner in it too!

What I'd like to see: A lot less pointless arguing and personal insults.

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

That's not in Sage's power to do.
But I hope offing the gremlins is. They wreak havoc on me all the time. Now they decided to swap all "open books" with "closed books" :P
