But with maturity comes the ability to act childish without being worried about loss of status. You see, when one is secure in ones own persona, one doesn't need to pretend adultness just to get social acceptance from ones peers... You'll understand in a few years Wink

Going back on topic... Well, thats it isn't it? Compile or Cyborg seems to be your only options, unless you intend to install Windows on your comp.

Chrispy, you seem to think alot of things are a waste of time. Like using the Shift key and typing out whole words and puncutation and stuff. You know, I'd admire your profecency if it didn't make you look like a total AOLooser. Come on, man. Spell out the words. Two key strokes ain't gonna kill you.

Don't you mean "a lot", "punctuation" and "proficiency"? And what language is "ain't gonna"? I have three words for you: "pot", "kettle" and "black".

Well, the original idea was that it was asked so many times it's become a sort of obvious rehersal that we shouldn't waste valuable brain-power figuring out how to word. I figured the post "how do I cheat? if I can't, you should put that in" has been posted about 2,234,728,395 individual times, but I couldn't find the post, nor is it stickied.

And for the record, compiling is easy. Just get all the library RPMs and then compile. You do run into problems sometimes, but it's a lot less daunting than you think.

I booted into Windows mode, thus making the savegame editor work (reboot, change, reboot, move files). In all seriousness, thank you for your time, I may be back again someday...

Oh, and wait. Cyborg mode? A link to the sticky where it is doubtless placed would be nice.

*Laf* that's pretty funny actually. So I can't spell. At least I try to spell out the whole word. Bad spelling is a natural degradation due to poor public school system. Trendy internet abbreviations are a blatant attempt to destroy the language to seem "trendy."

"Ain't gonna" is vernacular english. It was my attempt at interjecting a bit of humor into the post.

Two words. "Apples", "oranges".
