AOL newbs actually exist. They are no longer a myth.

So as we were all casually chatting on #gamedev about fairly random things (like usual), when a certain "vipejc" logged onto the channel via the site's jIRC client claiming to have brilliant hockey game design ideas. Anyway, he was a complete idiot (and has actually signed up to the forums already), but what the funniest and perhaps scariest fact of all was - that he uses AOL. Yep, folks, he uses AOL. He was a complete idiot that uses AOL. All of the AOL stereotypes applied to him. Truly astounding. And without further adue, from beginning to very end; The Tragic Tale of an AOL Escapee. Enjoy!

heya,

Not to be mean or prejudiced or anything, but I've found that the majority of AOL users [who post] on the net are AOL newbs. It's really quite scary when you read a post thinking "definitely an AOL user" and you get to the end and they give their AOL email address. Maybe it's just a sixth sense or something though...

And, nice timing.

wait, is oluyesi refering to the American national anthem because that's a complex tune. No one expects him to be able to toot that.

Oluseyi definitely gets a rating++ for starting to make that game

Work in progress, but...

hockey 0.1

I took down the rough sketches and bundled them into the archive. I think I'll keep at it. (The code's horrendous!)

Requires Python and PyGame.

Here's the game Oluseyi is working on with Pygame, Numeric and Python 2.3.x:

The Ultimate Clicky of Clickiness.

That's all done in under an hour. He had a minor issue with displaying the bmp properly, anyway, we're all looking forward to an updated version. [grin]

Feh. Yes, there are idiots and some of them use the internet. Yes, a large percentage of English-language users access it through AOL. Yes, you stand a pretty good chance of encountering an idiot who uses AOL. What's the big deal?

And no, not "all of the AOL stereotypes applied to him." He didn't speak in caps. [rolleyes]

We really should have. Put this splitting a sentance up. Into four parts on that. Annoying ways of posting thread. </joke>

EDIT: Clarification :)
