Right now,

Obduction IS here. And I just had a lovely tour of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh with Mac_Fife.

All of the messaging boards are so quite... I guess everyone is avoiding the spoilers. I'm sure I did!

But right now... I finished Obduction!! And it was awesome! Cool

Right now,

Prologue videos are offline, had a little problem with an OS upgrade.

Working to get things back online as soon as possible but it won't be immediate.

Thanks Martin! I liked those videos, glad you are still keeping them available.

Right now, I am watching videos on philosophy, and they are pretty cool, even though they are short.

Also, I wish a Linux version of Obduction existed. I really don't want to get Windows 10.

Right now, account creation is back online for Cyan's myst online server!

Also, I'm wondering if others here have checked out Seltani, the multiplayer text-game set in the uru universe?

Right now,

I just got back from 13MAGNUS REAWAKENS, an event for the AR game Ingress.

There, I met up with an old friend - vidkid7. He was able to spot me thanks to a certain jacket. Very Happy

Right now, I'm curious about what sort of game Ingress is? I know I could just google it, but I'd rather hear about it from a fan of the game.

Also, was the jacket a great tree jacket, or myst related jacket? Where could I get one of those? Sounds obscure enough that hardly anyone I know would recognize it, while still being recognizable to any myst fans I happened to run into.

Also, I'm curious if anyone ever visits the cavern, (Cyan's shard, or the other shards for that matter,) anymore? I usually look for the Great Tree Hood anytime I'm down, but I haven't seen it in the public ages nexus tab. I know everyone here probably has all the puzzle solutions memorized and has played through the content a dozen times or more, but I wondered if people were still around.

Right now, some answers...

-- Ingress --

Ingress at its core is a virtual war for territory. Each side tries to control portals (locations - points on a map) and link them together to capture/control areas.

If you've heard of or played Pokemon Go, it's by the same company (Niantic), and uses a lot of the same locations in the world. Ingress was the predecessor to Pokemon Go and has some features Go doesn't have (the ability to drop items for others to pick up, and to chat in-game).

Ingress has a storyline in which players influence the outcome of events depending on which side wins a battle, though it seems like a lot of players don't really pay much attention to the story.

-- Jacket --

I have one of a limited set of Great Tree Jackets, ordered for Great Tree members and Cyantists back in 2004. Had to be there when it happened.

-- MOULa --

There are players in MOULa now and then, depends on when you log in. I don't even know if The Great Tree Neighborhood exists in MOULa... honestly I only returned recently to the game to recollect things lost in the last database reset (which was 4 years ago, I think?)

Right now...

Ingress sounds a bit fun, but it also sounds like the kind of game that would need a decent time investment. Definitely something for anyone interested in interactive storytelling to keep an eye on, though. If nothing else, I'm curious how successful they are at giving players a sense of agency within the story, at least with the players who care about the story.

On Uru, I myself only returned to Cyan's shard after account creation was turned back on. The database crash was 3 years ago, rather than 4, but that's still a long time in my mind.

The Great Tree Jackets sound cool, all the more so since there are only a limited number in existence.

I guess a lot of people from this group have largely moved on to other journeys... like with Ingress, Obduction, and life and such. That's ok though, I still like hearing about everyone's adventures when they do occasionally venture back to talk about them.

Right now...

Iím stuck at the PS4 version of Obduction because the BLEEPING controls wonít cooperate! And I know what to do with a mouse as I also have the PC version.

Iím even more irritated with EAís treatment of Bioware than I was with Ubiís treatment of Uru.

Iím wishing my GT jacket I bought from Professor Askew still fit. I was in 8th grade at the time. Iíve gotten a similar jacket that fits me now from the Columbia website and will have it embroidered!

Speaking of 2003, the Matrix was mind blowing and its sequels disappointing. With that in mind, maybe we might get mind blowing sequels to the flop that was Jupiter Ascending.

It is exactly 500 years since Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the church door, starting the reformation. My church threw a party, but I was having a birthday dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant. Google:Buca di Beppo to see why I wouldnít pass that up.

Iím wondering why the iphone 8 even exists, when the X is just around the corner...

I just got a portable projector for $16 from Brookstone. The resolution sucks, (320X240) but I CAN WATCH MOVIES ON MY CEILING!! My inner 5-year-old is giddy.

Fathom Events showed Spirited Away in a local cinema. It was a fun diversion, and much easier to follow than Princess Mononoke.

Stream of consciousness: off

The ending WILL NOT be written.
