Re: The little Inn by the wayside

It truly boggles the mind how crappy the phpbb's anti-spam features are and how insanely difficult it is for mods or admins to do anything about it. Eveyrthing takes at least 10 clicks.

phpbb is dead. a carcass that the spam vultures feast upon.

Maybe you should watch more movies with Robin Williams then. The guy made awful stuff like "Flubber", "Popeye", "Toys", "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Hook".
The first three I agree with, but what's with the Hook hate?

Trials Fusion

The two games I've been working on for the past 1,5 years have both been now successfully launched. Trials Fusion is the next-gen version of Trials games, so if you have Xbox One or a PS4 (or even Xbox360 or PC), it's quite fun.

Re: Interesting pictures, videos and flash animations

Thanks, if you want to play the classic 2D version of Trials, they're available for free as Trials Legends . The real break-through games though were Trials HD and Trials Evolution on the Xbox 360, but they were packaged as Trials Evolution Gold for PC last year (there's a demo). At this point, I wo...

Congratulations, it has finally been noticed. For your FYI, for this achievement, we've deposited £100 pounds into your account that you're free to take out of any nearby ATM machine assuming you remember your PIN number.

"till honom", the feminine form is "till henne"), but yeah, "hen" is the non-gender...
