Apparently, it does work. Not sure how well though.

I don't use this website anymore (although I may check in or post occasionally), and have not for a while now. Sincerest apologies if you were wishing to communicate with me.
The vast majority of the things I have posted on here are old, and I regret them extremely. My attitude (i.e. annoyingness level (i.e. very high)) in such posts are (hopefully) not indicative of my current attitude (i.e. probably considerably less annoying). I thank all of my friends from earlier times here for tolerating my ignorance and idiocy.
Thank you.
(Also, I don't normally talk (well, type) like this. I just think it's fun. Bye.)

Me too.

Anyway, I want a Quidu plush. And a shirt that reads 'Godmodder of the Year'.

WARNING: I am insane.
They say games are a product, rather than a service. Certainly a nice thought, however this is more fiction than truth.
Each and every day, new games are created, with most being infested with microtransactions, paid expansions, and subscription services, bogging down (or blocking off entirely) the user experience until they cough up their life savings, even after having already purchased the game. However, we as fans have remedied the problems that plague modern games through modifications and fan servers. There is, however, one last game to fix.

Re: Keep This Website Alive!

I'm in the same boat as Yeroc, except for the mining one, so I have a couple of questions about that.

1), will it work via command-line on Linux, and 2), will it expose my IP to the TBGs account owner?

If yes and no, I can probably get started on mining.

EDIT: There is a version for Linux: https://github.com/nicehash/nheqminer
It also appears to work via commandline.
