Has anyone found the Androsynth? I sure know the Orz haven't!
« on: May 30, 2008, 03:27:13 am »

Im new to the site, and only halfway through the game, but I'm flying around QuasiSpace looking for the Androsynth for shits and giggles.  Do they not exist at all? Do the only come out at the end of the game? Or is it to remain a secret to me?  I like their little bubbler/comet, so it would be nice to add one to my fleet.  Grin

You'll find some answers if you go to the Androsynth homeworld.

How do you make official spoiler tags? I can't find a button for it.

Jumping *peppers*, I already talked to the *silly* Orz.  I was just hoping to get my hands on a Guardian.  The Guardians are not *silly*.

Valaggar, I already said that. And why is everyone using that stupid thing now? I was hopelessly confused when I first saw it, and I've never heard of "rot13" (and this is very significant because I am the teenager here).

Someone mentioned it in another thread. It's just every character is moved over 13 places in the alphabet, so "a" becomes "n." People are using it because it works on even non-standards compliant browsers or if settings like javascript are disabled.

Yeah, it's time to cut that out. Keep in mind who we are protecting from spoilers. Those are very likely not the lynx users. Having to use an external program to be able to read the spoiler is just too cumbersome. Although I did write a rot13 training program once, so I could learn to read rot13 without a tool. Not too well though; I didn't want to not be able to not read the spoiler. I unlearned it over time though.

Wow, so rot13 is a childish game like L33T and Pig Latin? And I thought I was the youngest one here.

I agree with Meep-eep. Stop using rot13. The point in spoilers is to prevent accidental reading of the text, not to make it difficult to read.

Nah, rot13 is seriously used to hide spoilers on usenet. But decent usenet readers have a built in functionality to decode text (which is the same as encoding).

I have had a sudden realization! Rot13 is clearly for nerds and dorks who have no life whatsoever. You know, maybe I should consider leaving this forum too. Forums kinda suck.

I have left the forum because it's a nerd community. Bye.
