I'll Give It A Try
See if it's less annoying than winamp's upgrade popups.
FUBAR originally meant Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition - from American GI's in WW2.

Game Programming Thread?
I was thinking about starting a game programming thread, where we could discuss and post links like http://levelofdetail.wordpress.com/2008/11/06/pixel-correct-shadow-maps-with-temporal-reprojection/
or less rendering related stuff ;)
basically some way to boookmark things and have others comment on them. Interest?
Not amazingly interested myself, but I'm sure there's enough weekend warrior programmers here who may.
I enjoyed this post \ agreed with it. Willem, I can't say I like your attitude in general, though I certainly respect your right to express it. But one can ask, if you're so against reactionaries and anti-commercialists, what exactly are you doing here? This is a board centered around a game that's 12 years old, and the proportion of people here who are anti-modern gaming is going to be much higher than a representative sample of 17 year old disposable income dumbass average buyers of today.
Anyway you seem like a smart guy and I enjoyed your "but he's not an asshole about it" comment. If you've gotten over angst and integrity realize that not everyone chooses that. Partially joking.
I'm well aware that one's right to speak radically is based on what one has contributed, and my statements always outweigh my contributions/piss off people in relation to what I've mapped for (CZG notoriously, in my view, exceeded his limit). That's my uncalled for opinion.

Calling bullshit on this one...
surely you're allowed to get away with being more arrogant/eccentric/egotistic/etc if you're artistically brilliant... when brilliant people are arrogant it's taken seriously, but if retards are, they're laughed at. Same attitude.
comparing apples and oranges there. Right to speak being based on contribution vs. being taken more seriously if one has contributed a lot. The latter I believe to be true, the former I think is bullshit, like Frib said.
alright well the latter is what I meant.
Welcome To The Internet
The best thing about this board is that erronious nonsense is limited - it's actually interesting to read the posts.
Contribution = right to speak? That's a new one on me, I thought that posting was a contribution, weather it's in the drunk thread or one of the help threads.
It seems alot of you/us take stuff said here too seriously. It's a nice place to discuss topics with like-minded intelligents, no more no less.
At the end of the day they're just posts on a messageboard.
pjw said it all.
I Guess I Just Meant
that I think I venture outside of my "right to say" given the content I've produced; I think personally (at least in this community) I'm more unpleasant than my maps could justify (again, CZG despite how awesome his maps are presses the issue)... but despite that conviction I can't help but speak my mind, and regarding Willem's anti-angst ideas there I am.
Wonder If This Concept Could Be Applied To Mapping:

Kinda disagree with that. That's the dude who does those quickfire game reviews right?? This could have been a lot lot better imo.
You mean Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation? This was definitely not him. A fair number of his reviews are lulz-worthy, I didnt even crack a smile to this.
