Just to clarify, we are talking about player mistakes. i.e. accidentally pressing 'CBY', or getting Mugged at Stardock with the WHOLE teams cash!

Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible.
Instead… only try to realize there is no spoon.

Well. I wrote a News script that would scan the Log and display the contents on SubSpace. Only problem was that if anyone posted a public announcement (trying to remember exact text): ****QQQQ***CBY ....the unfortunate soul running the script would suddenly die. Just one of those things that happen when source code is released.

Edit: just remembered that the problem was bigger than I remembered: If someone posted a public announcement, something like: ‘all mac ^m^m^mqqq^m^m^mcby* ....then everyone on the Corp running the version of M()MBot with the ALL command would suddenly find themselves Ship Destroyed. Lol

Mine calls it "nerding out" and laughs about how seriously we take the tourneys but she has gotten into the rush of it a few times watching me play.

The Mad Hatter's solution was to teach his wife to play. Her handle was Hattie, Zoobar was married to her sister. Another husband/wife team was Acid and Nightstalker. Acid was Silent Storm's big sister. Maelene also come to mind, I think her husband was Retaliator or maybe Rawhead Rex, then there was Guardian and Bad Girl.

I taught myself an ancient defunct language called Delphi 5, just so I could fix TWX Proxy:

Subject: TWX Proxy 2.06.01a - Alpha Release

Yes, that is the same language Tradewars is written in!
