The game is being based on Issac Asimov's Foundation & Empire universe, although the actual engine could be used for anything. What the others and I want to do is great a game/engine that allows you to see your place in the universe, however big that may be. as in most strategy war games people like to fight, so massive fights will definately be happening. However there will also be an RPGish type system where you also inhabit each individual planet of the universe. There will be almost no constraints on this, and it will also be user-definable. New objects and places can be designed and built by the players.
I'm designing the core parser of the game, and leaving the gameplay to the others. It is basically an xml backend, which can be used by AJAX or anything else. And it's GPLed too ;)

actually I don't like whippings. I think they're quite peverse. :o
I changed cause I didn't want to answer as many repeditive support questions, and because I like 'doc'ing.

Do you think it matters if you don't like it?

Do you realize some of the Team Members BEG for a whipping (and don't get it)?

Inherited permissions. Because that would simply be POWER.

Not really. As DNA said, space is dull, really dull.

who is your favorite band, and your favorite soloist singer?
Whats your duties as a DOC writer?
Favourite bands are many, but these are up there: Trading yesterday, Saosin, Evanesence, Death Cab for Cutie, RHCP, Anberlin. Favourite solo singer.. David Hodges from TY is pretty good

Dutie.. other than avoiding being whipped.. I just edit docs now mostly, but eventually I want to give the advanced section of the OM a complete overall, and document every part of SMF's insides.

How many books do you own? What's your favorite book (literature)?
I don't own many books, I borrow most of them from the library. Good books... The H2G2 trilogy is a classic, I love Asimov, books about polynesian history, John Grisham, Jeffery Archer, and lately I've been getting into William Gibson. Just finished Pattern Recognition and thought it was crazyawesome.

Do you hunt crocks downunder? :P
No but I used to ride a kangaroo to school :)

do you like the crocodile hunter whats his name Steve Irwin?
Most aussies think he's a weirdo.

My parents sometimes watch startrek, so I've probably watch 1-2 episodes or a few parts of some.
Role model: hmm no big ones really. but one little one is Dr John Baumgardner who completely changed what his PhD to geophysics (something he had no experience in) because he wanted to understand the issue well and defend his religion.
Haggis? no. :o

When you ask someone "how are you?" do you not always phrase it exactly the same every time? Same applys :)
