An Epic Post

May 15, 2009 in Random Thoughts, Team Writings

This post will be the most overrated post in the history of the TribalWars Blog. First of all, I’m Jono. Hi. I’m a new wiki sysop and I’m determined to make a number of fat changes in order to turn it into a more used resource of the TribalWars collection of goodies. The changes that I’ll make will most likely piss a lot of people off—manily those who previously maintained the wiki—but trust me! It’ll be awesome and for the better of the community.

Aside from that, I’m just an average guy from Australia, working as a computing guy in astrophysics.

One of my recent awesome thoughts is I believe the world would be a much better place if vegetarianism were uninvented. I’m sure all you fellow meat-lovers would agree. How annoying is it when you’re buying food for a barbeque and you’re thinking, “OK, sausages, nice. Steak, yes we’ll buy a whole heap of them. Meat patties? Sure why not.” and then you realise that you have a friend or two who are veges? I seriously have no idea what they eat, so I panic and decide they can eat these meat-looking, “non-meat” things. Still… it’d be a much better place if everyone just ate meat.

Ever been stuck with the feeling of, “Arghh… I have to write her and email or she’ll get annoyed?”. Usually the ‘her’ that’s used in this sense is some girl who’s close to you. Or at least thinks she’s close to you. Let’s get one thing straight.

Girls like to hear from you.

They most likely do not care about the content of an email/love letter/snail mail etc. They simply notice a whole lot of words and think, “Awwww… he really likes me”.  I’m only 23 years old so I’m either very naive or very cynical. So in order to combat the mundane task of forming an email, I’ve decided that it’d be an awesome idea to write a program which simply generates the email. Don’t get me wrong. Girls are pretty awesome and talking to them is great fun but seriously, I’m now convinced that any email sent to a girl should be in point form. Leave the lovey dovey stuff to the phone, Skype or even the next time you see her.

Back to my sexy program… It wi’ll be a program that randomly generates an email. Prior to running the program, it’ll take a number of variables which are related to your life such as, Boss’ name, where you work, your favourite couple of hobbies, number of siblings etc. Basically anything you’d normally talk about. Once it has that info, it’ll fetch a pre-compiled chunks of a sentence and put them together, forming a number of sentences which in turn will fill the paragraph and thus, write the email. I believe if/when I pull this off, it’ll be a genius idea and I’ll make billions from it.

I’m actually not sexiest.

I may have some male chauvinistic character traits but I sincerely apologise to anyone who’s offended.

I also encourage anyone who reads this to jump on IRC for a chat—where all the cool people hang out and get banned—and also check out the wiki. I’m under the name ‘Booper’ on both. Who knows why I have such an effeminate name for a freaking war game but I’d love to hear any wiki-related feedback and your random ideas on how to improve the wiki.
