Alright, now this OpenRPG thing you are talking about is a serious chat engine. It is running on a programming language called python. Phyton speaks machine language, 1's and O's, and that means it can probably run on everything from a windows 95 machine up to windows vista, macs on motorola chips, mac OSX running on intel chips, and it runs in
UNIX, Linux, Debian, Ubuntu etc... (these are all Unix variants, the software that came out of the colleges originally.)
It compiles Hippie_Mamma and you instincts are good. (It complies source code into machine code which usually means you will be able to get it to run eventually, at least on your desktop)
That whole site you linked to is very good. When I saw powered by sourceforge.net, I got a good feeling when I spotted GNU license I new you had it ... (This is my thought process as I am correcting my mistake about Hippie_Mamas post. I thought she did not know what she was talking about)
Alright, now that is a tip!
(Below is my dig a Mac Software and Mac commericials in general)
There should be an anti mac and anti microsoft commericial for Linux and after that cool young hip arsty guy finishes ripping up that fat guy with a tie and coke bottle glassed the GUY, it has to be a male, should turn around and look in the mirror and start singing...
"Who's that pretty mac in the mirror there?"
-Song set to: West Side Story
the original broadway Musical sound score.
"Such a pretty nose, such a pretty face..."
"Such pretty eyes..."
<Chorus backup dressed in working class clothes, all sexes and races>
"What who, where !?"
-As they look around for the pretty mac and stare through the hot young professional thats now starting to put on weight...
And then when the Mac Guy, the McGuy, you know what happened to McGuvor after he starts eating too man big MACS> who looks all cool, starts dancing and badly too.
Anyway, I ain't building that commericial but there are plenty of lines in the musical number from West Side Story to drive home the point that Macs are apples, and the Apple Corporation wants to make as much money, if they could, as the Microsoft Corporation.
(This is an important point that people miss when they start getting distracted into Vista versus Mac OSX or whatever came next. This is almost an argument of whether we should speak Esperanto or Spanish when both languages are owned, Tradmarked, Copyrighted by corporations which are forever. They never get tired of making money even if you have all the software you need. They just make sure your hardware breaks.)
Where was I?
(this is to bring it on home: and do what I wanted to do: Thank the poster that was persistent in posting about OpenRPG and then linking to it.)
Oh yeah, hippie_mama, you just earned yourself that title.
The 1960's Hippie movement had many threads to it and individuals in it. Many grew up to become neo-fisco conservatives. Thanks fine. That's the TV show "Family Ties." Some of them were my High School teachers. I like them a lot. I was trying to tell Hippie_Mama that she embodies what I feel was the good part of that movement.
If I, Jonathan, could use this OpenRPG to talk to my local Unix group online, now that's OpenSource, that's Hippie.
(That comment means I am not sure I, Jonathan, can be that good with the Engine. I have no doubt it is capable of being a general chat box but the thing is so geared to roleplaying it might be useless as a chat box.)
Now, if I ever had a new MAC, a MacIntel it will work.
Yes, this distribution of OpenRPG will work on Macs. I am sure of it.
It is only because I once had a Graphics Desinger Mac fanatic colleauge for awhile, who I found insufferable, that I know about MacIntels versus the ones that ran on motorola chips.
That and "In the Beginning... was the command line interface." - A short out of print Novel by Neal Stephenson who wrote SnowCrash and the Cryptonomicon. (see my myspace page for that link)
I was never a scout, do you think I could get a merit badge if I install this OpenRPG on all these partitions and my laptop!?
This is a reference to the people that post and chose to share their IRC numbers with the board. They get these little icons above their text box that shows how many chat box protocols they are willing to admit they participate in. To me they look like merit badges boy and girl scouts were on their sashes.
