That sounds familiar, where have I heard that before?...

Hmm...how about a couple of different times from your own...fingers?

I may be half-eaten but I remember those posts. iirc, you started a creative thread and it didn't go far? Say, mm, just like I have many, many times? My stuff? That was aok because most things I engaged in were not purely creative-fun but i.e. Poems & Fred's short-stories? Dudes "studying the Lore of a gameworld" but seldom or never investigating crafting-word-worlds of any size? Yeah, not a crime and certainly some kind of fun but I'll never understand that being a  swap and not merely an addition.

Idk, maybe that change started with a toy-race-car that you flip a switch and sit-back and watch the thing wheel-about, listen to the recorded-engine-noise and eye the lights = dazzled...versus getting with buddies and all of you "vroooming" hand-painted wooden versions and making the greatest motor-noises ever heard by human-ears,<L> while careening them around corners by hand and then after the pile-up, wiping spittle from our lips. "The Soap-box Derby" unleashed in-doors!

He's talking about the thread he made a while back, I'm disappointed. The old man really laid bare his soul that day.

Hey man, hope you're well. Yeah, I know; that post was part of my memory-banks; though I didn't remember it being that long.

Considering this thread had +1600 views 3 days after its creation, that there has been 200 registrations since christmas, on top of regular modding activity, forum is not going that bad.

from a modding standpoint alone, more than 300 people have downloaded my patch(and that's just one version). keeping in mind that not everyone has my patch even installed(as you can see from many a query here), those are pretty good numbers for any forum to stay alive. even if they're not posting and creating activity, they're still present.

now, comparing hc to 4chan, one could get the impression that this place is dead because of how slow it moves; but that's only because 4chan(especially /b) moves at breakneck speed. from the pov of speed, 4chan is like a cheetah, while hc is like a tortoise. but tortoises can live for more than 100 years.

hc lives on even without val's presence, and val's not pulling the plug anytime soon regardless. the only way i see hc going down, is if it's a physical issue with the servers/harddrive/internet, or if new zealand is destroyed by whatever.

the series will always stay alive as long as people are interested in homm games(or in modding them). i mean, look at chess, or the boardgame "risk". they've been around since forever(i'm not doing any research on that, lol), and people still play them.

tl,dr; if val/new zealand/the internet/people are still around, hc will still be around.

Hey man...long time since we typed. I hope you are very well.

Wisdom? Thanks but it is actually a great deal of care, mixed in with lots of good & bad experience - Doesn't make an old mage always right but 6 decades+ should give any one of us a little insight? No Pride, just Love.

pain is no longer purple it's looking more like black. I'll avoid describing how hard a day can be but I am thankful I have a strong Spirit. Honestly, I would never have chosen this path but also just as truthfully...I would never trade it now.

iirc, You ended your modding efforts a while back? Doing any thing since?

Good to see you too.

I find it funny that now somebody is posting fishy links throughout the place.


The forum seems active enough from the outside it seems.

Why should I trust someone who doesn't put caponata in his burger?

A caponata is a dish made of: aubergines, bell peppers, onions, capers, olives with a coating of oil and tomato sauce.

And a burger with caponata is probably one of the greatest things that could come from a fusion dish, before that I regarded fusion food as an hipster thing that wouldn't taste well, I changed my mind after that fateful day...

I don't like fusion food if things are too forced just for the sake of fusing but there are indeed very good examples. You can think of it this way, all cuisine is fusion in the long run, they are just fusion that stood the test of time.

after googling wtf aubergines were, it sounds like it would be decent, if you were to get rid of the olives. i hate olives.








maybe in exchange for olives, i could use pineapple

I was going to answer angrily at the suggestion, then I considered that it would actually ruin the taste for real.

Pineapple is too sour and sweet and too fruity to mesh well with the good homely bittersweet caponata.

@ neraus: i know, i was just being an ass.


i'm not particularly fond of eggplant, to be honest. green peppers, for some reason, upset my stomach. but i can eat yellow, red, and jalapeno's without an issue. go fig.

I think it all went downhill after I stopped posting.
