Forget the clam.. I have a question...
« on: March 27, 2006, 04:04:38 pm »


OK, how many nine-foot tall blind people attend GDC that they require a braille sign? Wouldn't you think that having a braille sign that high would perhaps be a safety hazard? (think ceiling fan).

This is almost as dangerous as the braille on the drive-up ATMs...I mean that poor dog can't keep in front of the car on the interstate for very long can he?

-Lego

(edited for my misspelling of braille as 'brail'.. thank you for pointing it out.. I also fixed 'hazzard' and there was no Dodge Charger in the picture either)

That's not brail! it's a subliminal message that imprints information on our brains where it remains unnoticed until it is triggered by the release ofSpore, in which it will force us all to go buy it right away. Those EA guys are sneaky.

You spelled "braille" wrong.

I never thought it was braille.

Each braille character consists of six dot positions; two per column and three per row. Those dots are arranged in two rows and fifteen columns, under ten letters. Were it braille, there would need to be an additional row, and an additional five columns.

What are those dots? I don't know, but they are not braille.

My apologies, might I recommend some UT2004? That game always seems to satiate my explosion exigencies.

Except I could never get past that goddamn last 1on1 battle before the Onslaught missions began on the single player mode...
I used to play multiplayer, but it's become harder and harder to find a good server. =/
Currently playing:

Rocket Slime (DS)             Guitar Hero II (PS2)
Resistance (PS3)               Zelda (Wii)

So many good games, so little time...

Maybe they're meant to symbolize the old computer punch card programs.
