Servers and http requests

You were making a telnet request, not an http request.

Yes, pickled doesn't respond to http request.  No reason to.

Yes, continuum did respond to http request, because of a feature
being tried out years ago.  No reason to keep it, so I've turned it
off.

There was no mercy in this game.  I got slaughtered regularly.

Sounds good. So are we having a game this coming Sunday or are we waiting
until the first Sunday in May?

Holy crap. Did I just revive this game?
 
I wasn't even good at playing it when I started up a local server. I got
killed... by bots.
 
Does anyone know of any good gameplay videos I could watch that do a good
job of explaining the game? All I can find are snippets of games and
gameplay videos that have to be run in a certain client (windows-only).

Hello?

Anybody here?  Stumbled upon this game on the RIT Computer Science House.  Not one to turn down a challenge, I
installed the client on my Mac (I couldn't get it to compile), and I compiled the server code on a fresh
Elementary OS [Ubuntu fork with a better UI] (okay so I tried to compile it for a few hours, it didn't work,
then I'm like "oh look there's an apt-get package :D").  So many 32-bit libraries!!!

Do people still play this or will I be reduced to hoping there's another soul in the world who plays this
thing?  And if so, are the servers still up?

Stable Mac client?

Has anyone found a blessed client that works on OSX 10.8.5?

I've been trying to use Mactrek 1.5.0, but that doesn't work very well.  After I die, I don't get the respawn window.

Alternatively, is there a client that works on Active X?  I can run that on my Mac.
Thanks,
Alan

a slight revival of empire (proto-netrek from pre-internet)

There has been an attempt at reviving this game with some modifications to reduce annoyances, and some
organized nights of fighting-for-fighting's-sake.

These tend to occur on Friday and Sunday evenings about 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET.

If you're on cyber1 (a free, open internet PLATO system), stop by empirenotes. If you're not, perhaps you
will be motivated to get started at http://www.cyber1.org/

For background about (this kind of) empire, see

Hours Report

James: Tell me whether you still require a revised hours report.  I have turned in two now that you have not paid for.  I am running out of funds. Do I have to steal from Smith's again to keep from being hungry?  It will help the sooner you tell me so I can prepare some theft plays that won't get me caught.

The total wqas clearly over 25 hours.  You can multiply 25 by ($22 / hr).

// 2. Answer:  It was relevant.  Nietzsche said 'Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. '  Nietzsche also said, 'This action nearly kills Zarathustra, for example, and most human beings cannot avoid other-worldliness because they really are sick, not because of any choice they made."  Solving www.spoj.pl problems is partly philosophical.  Did you know that the pouring problem can be reduced to modulo?  I bet you did not.

You did not pay for those dates, so I am perfectly able to bill for the other work I did on those days.  I am allowed to improve BABTWR and the others.  I am halfway to BABTWR under ten seconds, which is three times as good as your 37 second answer using Python.

// Answer:  If you would keep a constant Nyquist rate of surveillance of my reports you might be able to follow what I do.  Such as how I solved the Water pouring problem using only the % (modulo symbol).  Beep Beep.  This is Sputnik Sieben.  I spent a lot of time on the problem.  I havea good idea of what works and what does not.  At this point I am not interested in your input regarding it for I have a bean on it.  Two beans, in fact.
