from the Desert - Lum
3:00 PM WHAT THE HELL, LET'S JUST CALL THIS LADYMOI WEEK. FREE TCHOTCHKES FOR *EVERYONE*!
There seems to be a religious debate going on over at Another Mad Tower's message base over the unholy charms of LadyMOI. The truly scary thing, though, is that LadyMOI is right there swinging virtual fists with the best of them. When someone challenged her innate feminine superiority, she replied with this:
Of course the most IMPORTANT power she failed to include was her secret weapon,
I mean, people are lining up RIGHT NOW to see who can hack into Citibank and erase the balance due on her Visa card the fastest. Do people do that for Julia Roberts? Do they do that for Britney Spears? Noooooo.
2:00 PM WHY AM I POSTING THIS NEWS STORY? ARE THE SMURFS NOT POSTAL ENOUGH ALREADY?
I was going through the web site cleaning up dead links and un-uploaded pages (hey, all the archived news links work now!) and noticed this interesting tidbit. Remember when I linked to SRC Kyra's home page as part of a story?

How are they doing that? Well, whenever you follow a link on a web page, part of the HTTP header you send to the web server on that page tells it where it came from. Ate-up web guys like myself can then tell who is linking to us. It's pretty cool. In this case, they looked to see if someone followed a link to this page from lum.xrgaming.net and if they did, sent out that picture.
I love the Internet. Kind of like to know how I'm stealing bandwidth, though. I mean, I could REALLY USE more bandwidth.
1:30 PM WE ALSO FOUND OUT THE CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN IS REALLY RICKY MARTIN'S FATHER
Many of you who read our report from the desert this weekend were struck with curiosity over the identity of the mysterious "Gordon". (Many others accused me of making him up.) So, we found out who he is, really.
What most of you REALLY wanted was more LadyMOI, and we're working on doing an interview/feature article with her sometime next week. However, there will be no RealVideo footage involving string bikinis, so it won't be ALL that you requested.
11:30 PM EQ GMS RACISTS!
I was sent this from Wyrtgorn of the wee people about the latest on the Tallon Zek racewar server. This is a good example of why they REALLY need to disable all combat near zone lines.
11:30 PM NO NECROMANCY FOR YOU!
Fear had these comments on OSI and the mysterious "Gordon";
1:00 PM AIR CONDITIONING - IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING
Just got back from the Texas desert, and true to my word, I didn't take any pictures. Well, OK, actually I did. They're with the rest of my report on what happens when a whole bunch of UO people drive out in the desert and ask what happened to smiths, anyway.
Also, apparently, while I was passed out or something I went on Siege and lit up a toke or two while listening to Metallica. The UONN has the full story.
