PC5 to launch this Sunday. Werd!
February 18th 2001, 01:57 CET by Morn

Tomorrow, PlanetCrap 5.0 will finally launch. What can you expect from the new version? Well, to be honest, <i>not a lot</i>. ;-) Everybody who liked PC3 will love PC5, since the two are really similar (except PC5 looks a bit better). CrapSpy support for PC5 should be available soon after the site's launch, too, so if you've never actually visited the <i>website</i>, you probably won't have a reason to do so now. *sniff*

Oh yeah, <b>IRC party</b>! I'd like to invite you all to hang out in <b>#planetcrap</b> tomorrow at 8pm GMT/UTC (9pm CET, 3pm EST, noon PST, <a href="http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc">more</a>). Either use <a href="http://www.planetcrap.com/crapspy/">CrapSpy</a>'s built-in chat, the Java IRC client on <a href="http://www.developium.net">developium.net</a>, or simply connect to irc.developium.net with your <a href="http://www.bersirc.com">favourite</a> <a href="http://www.mirc.com">IRC client</a>.

On a seperate note, its good to see an event happening at a decent time GMT - most events are usually geared towards American time so I have to stay up til like 3am... and don't get me started about competitions... :)<i><b></b></i><i></i><i></i>

The big question, of course, is: Will Andy be back when the PC5 launches? I sure hope so becuase it's so boring without him =)

No way.  After what he did to George Broussard and made all the developers run away scared, no way.

PC is a place where people like to talk shit, so it needs a shit disturber like Andy. He should rein it in a bit, but on balance it's more interesting with him stirring things up than not.

What you need is port 6667... if it's blocked, you'll have to either telnet/ssh into another machine and irc from there, or use an IRC bouncer running no a "popular" port. Of course the latter assumes you can set one up on a machine you can log in to, too. Doh. :/

PC needs a shit disturber, but not one who believes his own 'hype', or thinks they're actually doing it for some noble cause. Forget Andy, no talent aggravators like him are a dime a dozen.

I have no problem to get a computer i could ssh into. a friend of mine is doing unix admin work at a university. the problem is telneting out of here without somone from IS blowing a fuse. :( well i'l probably survive without irc i have done that for six months now anyway.

Here's an idea -- if you find PC boring, stop reading it. I don't miss Andy one bit and if he comes back, this place will just go through the same monotonous Andy vs. the world BS, which I *do* find boring.

Just my humble opinion, of course.

All I ask for PC5 is that I don't have to scroll to find the newest messages. :)

Sometimes my cookies work, sometimes they don't.  Weird.  I may have to reinstall Windows.
I can still remember installing Windows 286, the runtime version that came with PageMaker.  
Pamela Andersons breasts freak me out.
Drew Carey is not funny, Raymond is.

I would rather be hot as hell than cold

You broke my buttons morn!  WAH!  And at your request, I'm going to mention my suggestions from the pc5 site again.

Adjustable colors - BG, and text? Maybe RGB sliders? I saw something like that on www.yaromat.com, but it seems to be down right now. It had sliders that dynamically adjusted the color of the text and background of a box. Type in boxes would work too, but aren't as sexy.
 
The hyperlink tags seem to be busted right now too, but it might just be because you are working on it as we speak.  Sure looks that way, cause the mistake in the tag descriptions just got fixed.  What's the correct usage supposed to be?

Oh, and big thanks to Morn for putting back the link that takes you straight to unread messages. For non-Crapspy users, it's like manna from Heaven. :)
