Site News / Site problems?
« on: March 31, 2005, 01:09:50 am »
Over the last couple of days I've notice extended periods (2h and more) of downtime of Gamingsteve.com and fora.

Is this a known/expected problem from updating or something more sinister :P

I hope not...

TV / Atlantis and SG1
« on: March 27, 2005, 10:39:57 pm »
Being in the Great South Land of Oz can be a real drag sometimes.

Just last Sunday, one of our commercial networks started airing SG-Atlantis...and stopped airing SG1.
I understand Atlantis has been out for some time in the US?

Anyway, what do people think of Atlantis as opposed to SG1?

And does anyone know if SG1 is continuing along side Atlantis? So far I haven't heard anything on this front.

Oh, and try not to give away too many spoilers, I've only seen one Atlantis episode so far :P ;D

Books / Strata
« on: March 23, 2005, 10:47:17 pm »
A little bit of recommended reading?

Strata is a kind of conceptual prequel to Terry Pratchet's Discworld novels.

It involves a highly advanced Human civilisation creating whole planets with various Strata machines (huge things that lay down islands and bedrock and mountains etc.)

While the plot is reasonably character based there is a fair amount of interesting sci-fi ideas that may have influenced Spore in some way or other.

Anyone here read it or remember it at all?

Spore: General / Botanical Spore: Sentient Plants

Hi everyspores.

I've been lurking around here for a couple of days absorbing all the Spore news I can, information leech that I am. It's a great place you've got going on here so I thought I'd join in the fun. If you don't mind that is ;)

Now, I know I've posted this in the Spore forum so i'd better say something about that hadn't I.

I was going through all the different sorts of creatures I might like to try out when I (finally) get the game and while going through the list of basic types I came across something nobody else seems to have mentioned.

There was: mammal, reptile, flying, avian, fish, aquatic etc. etc....BOTANICAL!!! I think I'd like to make a TRIFFID!!!

Maybe we could have sentient plantlife wandering around the galaxy! If anyone has read John Wyndam's (sp?) Day of the Triffids you'll know what I'm talking about. What do you think? It's definitely a possibility but you'd need an entirely different set of parameters for making an intelligent cactus or whatever.

Would you have to start off as a bacterium rather than protozoa? Maybe a single celled fungus? That'd relly give proper meaning to the name Spore :)

Anyone else feel like making a thinking veggie?
