how's that a bug?  if the person is stupid enough to cast the spell on an immune character, why shouldn't it cost MP and fail, just like it'd do in battle?  or are you saying outside battle checks should be more stringent than in-battle (e.g. you can't cast Cure on somebody with full HP)?
To follow up on this, it doesn't stop you in battle from trying to inflict/remove blocked status in battle, and I believe the same code is called between the menu and battles. I believe HP/MP stopping once you're at the max is only handled in the menu to prevent people like me from using a turbo button. :tongue: Definitely quirky, but probably not a bug.

The question is, do any of us care? Are there any compelling story lines to the games this year other than the smog and the pollution and the oppression? :hmm:

I, for one, will be watching the highlites on ESPN, since the division races seem to be more interesting at the moment. :blush: There's also preseason football! :tongue:

Thunder Shield is not that handy with the Minerva (you only get Thunder absorb as the prime benefit).. and it primarily shares a pair of the Force Armor benefits.
Very true, but I believe the poll was about the three shields by themselves. If not, I was misled! :isuck:

Thunder Shield has the best elemental protection of the three shields, and it's absurd how good it is. :omghax:

Though I dislike double posting, I feel it is necessary at the moment. The gauntlet has been thrown down...

Living in a hotel is normalcy? I think I'm missing something here...

Satellite, and grandma would probably be senile by now without it, since the 5 channels have nothing on them (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and FOX).

Nope, that's only on cable and they don't offer cable to this part of the area.

ah, that's right.  being in Chicagoland myself, i tend to forget that WGN is a "superstation" that gets beamed around the country.  now, will you see the WGN news and/or weather there, or do they replace those with some other programming?  9 pm central time is hour-long news, for instance; tell me what that has tonight if you can.
* Checks ye olde TV guide

Hmmm, Goldeneye starts at 7 PM central, one hour of AFV before that, Corner Gas and then an hour of Scrubs after that. We do normally get the WGN news at 9 though. :happy:

I thought the Braves+TBS had a special contract..
They did, last year was the last year of that deal. Now they can broadcast any games they want.

I'm fully aware of their "Sunday afternoon game of the week", which is part of their agreement with MLB.. which includes the playoffs, and unfortunately the ALCS (I don't want to fucking watch the NL playoffs on my end, damn you MLB and FOX).
Be thankful your FOX reception is viewable, since we have a nice mountain blocking a good portion of the channels for us. Everything is very snowy and FOX is especially bad. Not ironically enough, the reception is many times better when it's a cloudy day.

Doesn't TBS still do Braves games? Lots of hopelessness there after trading away Texiera and their season.
Only if they are the "Game of the week." TBS is only sticking to showing the big market games right now (a ton of Yankees, Red Sox, and Mets games). In fact, I'm not sure if they haven't done a game without those teams yet... :banonsmash:

you get Cubs/Brewers telecasts over there?  or are you saying some other wing of the Cubs or Brewers organizations had it in a press release or something?
The game was on WGN, which is the only way to get the Chicago feed up here. :bah:

He was traded, to the LA Dodgers.
Oddly enough, when I posted that the Cubs/Brewers announced a rumor that he had been traded to the Dodgers, and not less than two minutes later ESPNews announced that it was a done deal. How's that for egg on the face? :blush:

Ok, corny joke. My apologies, but Manny Ramirez just isn't gonna get traded. *attempts to dodge pies thrown in his direction*

Ok, ok, ok. To real business. A couple of weeks or so ago, somebody from "the minibosses forum" sent me an email with a bunch of brand new NSFEs. Who am I to turn down more entries? :cycle: I tried to get the accents to appear for Deja Vu's title, but they won't show up. :sad:

Additionally, Joelsmith380 sent in a brand new FF2 patch, which he's calling Basic Improvement.

Whoa, you confused me for a second, I thought you had changed the /me code so it would be yellow instead of light blue.

* Dragonsbrethren kinda likes the yellow...
I didn't know that code existed... :clocke:
