    answering a question my future fiancé

    Haha, the image of explaining the hours spent, both playing Runescape and posting here is pretty funny to me. It's insane to think of the content we've all amassed here, I've considered making some kind of web trawler to put together a .zip file to save everything possible. I dunno what Sal would think about that, though; for all I know he's paying by-request or something insane.

    Anyhow, we didn't *really* know each other since you were so cool but seeing your influence on everyone was really neat. I know you were looked up to highly by a lot of my friends.

    side-note: you've still got that 2014 animated sig! my only claim to fame!

     

    Thoughts about Sal's and its place in our lives:
    I really miss GFX and the community here. Instagram pales in comparison to having hundreds of people viewing and criticizing your content. I think that's really what I miss most about Sal's - not just likes, but counterpoints and arguments against what you say, it was a real conversation.

    I read a lot. I like to jump between genres a lot too. Lately I've been on an astronomy binge, but my last 4 books I've read in terms of scope are very different from each other. Most recent is a memoir from the Holocaust called Man's Search for Meaning, then Mother Night by Vonnegut, then Longitude which was about the discovery of... well longitude, and finally Good to Great about how to build a successful company. 

    So I'm all over the place lately. 

    My favorite author is Steinbeck. East of Eden is my favorite all-time book, followed by The Sirens of Titan by Vonnegut, and then 11/22/63 by Stephen King. 

    I've heard great things about Murakami.. I have Kafka on the Shore on my shelf right now, it's on my to-read list. Infinite Jest is also on that list... maybe I'll have to give Wallace a try. But more immediately I need to read The Grapes of Wrath and Bill Bryson's new book, The Body. There is just never enough time to read though.

    Hey I loved The Sirens of Titan, I've been meaning to reread it along with Jailbird. What'd you think of Mother Night? I really like how Vonnegut isn't so verbose and lengthy that it becomes a chore to finish. (here I am, sitting at page ~650 of Infinite Jest)

    You guys all have just lengthed my to-read list raaaaaaah Isaac Asimov sounds like a blast though.

    Recently read LeBron, Inc.: The Making of a Billion-Dollar Athlete

    Hey!! Long time no see!! Admittedly non-fiction is not something I ever pick up, what'd you think of it? is that primarily the content you read? is picking subjects you're naturally interested in the best way to get started there?

    I've been reading Diana Rowland's White Trash Zombie series. Also, some very interesting sex-filled books from Chloe Adler called A Witches Dark Craving. Basically I'm just one of these people that refuses to walk away from YA fantasy. Just finished reading The Dysasters by PC & Kristen Cast who did the House of Night books and Julie Kagawa's The Immortal Rules series.

    If anyone has any suggestions for YA fantasy that doesn't shy away from being crass, mildly sexual and humorous, I'm fully in.

    A lot of the time I'll read classic novels because at least I know they've been chosen as classics for their quality. My favourite book of all time is The Count Of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas who also wrote The Three Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask (coincidentally the Leonardo Di Caprio film is also one of my favourite films). Another one is Victor Hugo, with Les Miserables, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame de Paris and finally, the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    Oh man, a re-read of The Count of Monte Cristo is very high-up on to-do list; I gotta say all the classics I read for school then come back to? I appreciate them so much more. It's a funny phenomena, I disliked being asked questions about them then and basically just read looking for answers, but I'd really like that kind of thing now. I guess that's what growing up is

    I know very little of YA fiction, Eragon is basically my only "ha-ha what a fun read" there, but no mild sexuality in that no sir

    SIDE NOTE: being able to react to posts with custom emojis like in Slack would be hilarious


  8. I've gone in-and-out of reading phases but am back in it with some David Foster Wallace, I read Murakami's 1Q84 last year and really liked it alongside some nondescript psych books. Anyone else been reading anything good in their free time lately?

  9. looks good, reminds me kind of what tip.it used to be like

    depressing that the wikipedia and subreddit removes any traffic; I'd be shocked if there's over a hundred real visitors a month. positing ideas, there could be content like Sal's old screenshots and notes from people who donated - i.e. content not reproducible or relevant anywhere else that gave the site personality.

    a dynamic background would be kinda cool, imagining something like this ((((((never finished it i suck)))))

    Sal or yuan made a permanent fix for me for that issue I think

    I kept getting banned too

    it's a server issue and not a forum issue if I'm not mistaken

    but yeah, it's weird

    it has something to do with the cloudfront load balancer/threat management; I was banned too but it never went away. I just got a new IP :-)

    in reality it's probably for the better, we're all doomed here without Mr. Fang


  11. A Much More Scientific Look into A More Scientific Look into A Scientific Look Into... [ Click here to read more.. ]

    Abstract
    A number of highly impressive social scientists were consulted with the focus on two studies conducted in the fall of 2019[1]. The goal of these scientists was set into motion after both studies were scrutinized over many nights. This study will delve to the true answer of the real question:

    Quote

    "Why did Guitarguy kill The Realm?"

    The second study in question sidestepped the original issue entirely[2] and failed in numerous aspects of the scientific method, as well as utilizing a common method: intentional ignorance[3]. As our first study proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Guitarguy did in fact kill the realm, we focus on the why in this white paper.

    Key words: Adoption probability, Guitarguy, Salmoneus, The Realm, Sal's TMZ, Yelo did nothing wrong, Adoption probability

    1. Introduction and Getting Up To Speed

    Following the original study[1], we can see with empirical data that Fiddleman's presence was in fact the sole contributor and cause of the downfall of The Realm. The bias found in the second study, conducted by the perpetrator in question himself. It is a foundation of modern society that unfair biases are never allowed, ever. Therefore, the study conducted by Fiddleman himself has been thrown out. At this point, we can conduct the real meaningful studies.

    2. Key Factors Underlying Adoption Decision: Theoretical Foundations and Operationalization

    We review relevant social network theories that point to several key factors underlying a social entity’s adoption decision, and then propose ways to operationalize these factors with social network data.

    3. Why Did he Do It?

    Analysing why exactly Guitarman ruthlessly slaughtered The Realm took many hours of intensive research and inner questioning by the scientists conducting the study. This methodology was forced to stay in the realm of science, as often the question of 'why' leads to the introduction of both morality and judgment of character. We ensured this did not happen, because Guitarman is a smooth criminal. This gave our team enough information to confirm that his motivations lay behind the TV show My Little Pony[3]. There are a number of episodes that specifically give instructions to kill institutions of friendly conversation and happiness. We conclude that Guitarman's association with ponies[5] in fact precipitated and motivated his merciless slaughter of The Realm.

  12. Abstract
    The study of user activity here at Salmoneus' Realm of Runescape (henceforth referred to as The Realm in this study.) has been a major point of focus for the previous decade - at the time of this writing, since 2009 forwards. Many theories and solutions have been presented but there has been no solid scientific studies performed to precisely explain why and how the decline of The Realm occurred. This paper will strive to identify and blame a single user.

    The Rest of The Post
    I believe my scientific study speaks entirely for itself, but I would accept any thoughts and criticisms towards my analysis. I spent quite some time collecting data points (1: Guitarguy joining, and 2: Guitarguy using a pony avatar.) and fitting it to the trends of activity here at the realm. 

    Conclusion
    I am not putting this forward with any suggestions or thoughts, merely a completely objective point of view. I would appreciate any solutions or actions to be taken following this study. 

    Hugs and Kisses,
