Glammeress Icon : (16 July 2017 - 12:48 AM) Just thinking about this place, like out of nowhere. Hope everyone is well.
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 04:07 PM) Not bad. Just finishing up grad school. Which means I am looking for distractions from writing. :p
Phieta Icon : (09 July 2017 - 05:06 AM) Still flying, so to speak. How goes with you?
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 02:42 AM) I am even more amazed someone replied to this in less than a few month timescale. Hi! How goes?
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:43 PM) He does log into GW every month or so to retain leadership, so that's something
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:42 PM) There are several of us! Several!
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:33 PM) I was actually hoping to get in touch with Cspace since its been forever. But it looks like our old leader is lost to the void.
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:29 PM) In a moment of pure nostalgia, I remembered this site. Seeing any shouts from this year is insane.

Phieta Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:43 PM) GW1 10th Anniversary stuff: New weapon skins (uniques with extra bonuses during festival events), and the 4th Anniversary storage tab if you didn't already unlock it.
Phieta Icon : (21 April 2015 - 06:05 AM) New GW1 content?! Maybe, maybe not; but have a two-week party either way: http://www.cspacezone.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=51720

A Norwegian man wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until he passes a little math test!
"Here's your first question," the foreman said. "Without using numbers,represent the number 9."
"Without numbers?"

The Norwegian says. "Dat is easy," and proceeds to draw three trees."What's this?" the boss asks.

"Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine," says theNorwegian."Fair enough," says the boss.

"Here is your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99."

The Norwegian stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Ere you go."

The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?"

"Each of da trees is dirty now! So it's dirty tree, and dirty tree,and dirty tree. Dat is 99."

The boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire this Norwegian, so he says, "All right, last question.Same rules again, but represent the number 100."

The Norwegian stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and says,"Ere you go. One hundred."

The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think that represents a hundred!"

The Norwegian leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree, and says, "A little dog come along and crap by each tree. So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd, which make one hundred..... So when I start?
