So apparently my headcanon is that Ms "I don't have a name yet, maybe Suzi?" NPC talks with a cockney accent, was that your intention? :D

Sorta.  Aiming for The Moon is a Harsh Mistress pseudo-Australian.

Okay so where does this fall?

Well, he seems not to have been salvaged but does appear to have the results of someone else being salvaged.  I think that make him part of the grey market.

Also, the idea of waking up in that bathtub, filled that way?  Pure 100% Nightmare Fuel

So, Ms "I don't have a name yet, maybe Suzi?" NPC is talking to the player about looting and salvaging and why salvaging takes longer.

Her name is Bonnie, for the famous pirate pair of Mary Reade and Anne Bonney.

Your next NPCs shall be named Ginger, Wilberforce, Teddie/Teddy, Maizie, Nicholas, Chuck, and Lee Anne.

Right after I posted that I remembered that I wanted to have an NPC that passed a particular sort of test.

Everyone, meet Maria Suzanne Spieler.  That's right, Mary Sue, the Player.  She goes by Suzi most of the time.

I'll keep your names in mind for the rest of the crew.

Three minutes and 23 seconds is just about at the one hour mark.  I would have left already but I'm kind of curious whether they'll actually pick up eventually.

There are currently no agents available to chat. Please try again soon.

Guess they have too much money and need to annoy any more potential customers into going away!  Seriously, at least be honest about whether you'll get to talk to someone!

For total chaos, imagine 'All agents are currently assisting one another. One will be available to assist you as soon as they have broken free of their current endless loop.'

Thanks.  Now next time I call up or try to chat with customer service, I'll be picturing the agent orgy going on while I'm on hold!

Just for the record, way back in the day when I wrote voicemail applications and other IVR sort of things, VSSI never wrote one of those types of frontends, I know I can say without any question it's Not My Fault.

I have to remind family members of this from time to time.

Early prepaid cell phones?  Maybe

Cell phone voice mail as in leave a message?  Highly likely 20 or so years ago.

Small phone company's land line voice mail user option?  Near unity, in the 1990-2005 time frame.

Voice mail with a pager?  Again, near unity of that one.

It's amazing how Jinx can be so mature that Doc is comfortable leaving him in charge of the shop, yet so innocent when it comes to relationships and the things Swampy and Sandy do in the closet. ;)

I personally think that Sandy and Swampy are kind of unusual. In fact, they are the only heterosexuals I know of that keep themselves closeted.

I find Sir Patrick Stewart immensely amusing in his own right. Here he is combining his skills with a tribute to Monty Python.

This is why Patrick Stewart was knighted.

Of course like most double ended weapons, the Bat'leth is rather silly.  Weapons that you hold at that center of mass mean that you are going to smack it into your self.  Yes, I know there are methods of using it so you don't, but some one with a traditional sword of the same length is going to out range the Bat'leth user by several feet.  And let's not even get into the range advantage some one that uses a pointy bit as it's offensive end.  Some one with a rapier would nail a Bat'leth user before they could get their first "Your mother has a smooth forehead" off.

And, yes, I've seen some one that claimed he was a "master" of a Bat'leth vs a middle of the road SCA light weapon user "spar".  If spar is what you call a fencer using a fanboi as a moving target.

Okay, so this is really old…

Reminds me of the argument I had about this yeeears ago back on StarDestroyer.net. Jeez. Looking for that has reminded me why I left.
