You can turn off your swath and leave twx running as an icon and not worry over someone using the puter .

Scripts will run but no keyboard commands

I'm not running twx, just swath with mostly the stock scripts, although I did modify one to act the way I wanted it to. Took me a while too, since the last time I did any real programming, it was in BASIC. (NOT Visual BASIC, there was no such thing back then)

You ever try taking a Greyhound or Trailways from Indy to Georgia or Arkansas? It's a lot like the internet. On those busses, you are going to go from Indy to St. Louis, the outbound to wherever. My internet goes via Chicago, even if I'm accessing the servers where I work, and it's only about a 15 minute drive from me, in the same town, with the same ISP. Go figure.

I think this is why returning players get discouraged and leave. When you come back you're coming back solo, you don't have a corpie, and you don't know yet who you can trust.

He's not stupid or a glutton for punishment, he just wants to play.


cruncher, who said he was stupid or a glutton for punishment? and this player doesnt seem to be leaving either. and he is playing. how does your post help him at all? this is not the forum for debate, and everyone already knows your opinion anyways.

hitech, if you want to go on an unlimited solo, i know UTW bangs them. if you need a corpie, theres a classified section... although a lot of people are occupied with a big tournament right now. its really hard to avoid afk scripting. even in turn limit games with a time limit there are workarounds...

i dont let my kids touch my pc, but my wife does mess it up from time to time. she broke her laptop by smacking it off of the doorjam like, idk 20 times maybe? families are bad for technology... maybe you can put a little electrified fence around the keyboard while you arent home... its a shame most pcs dont have a keylock anymore.


Actually, I think I said that I was either stupid or too stubborn to quit. :)

I don't think my cats would like an electric fence on my desk, although I have considered a deadbolt for my office door. But that still leaves my with the whole honor issue. I just can't justify letting my computer defend my stuff while I'm at work, sleeping or off doing whatever.

Indy to mid-missouri, and Mid-missouri to Salt Lake City. So, yeh, sortof.

Still, even if you route thru Chicago, I bet you get a better route than most.

Let's remember this is a tatical question. Not a newbie thread in smack talk. Hitech if your looking for a corpie just go to the smack talk and see who's been thrashing everyone around. I could name 1 or 2 people right off the bat. Hey if you need some help lemme know I can help you out somewhat.. Not the best player nor the worst! Booger would prolly help to. Wouldn't you booger? lol
