    Let's take a moment to pause and congratulate ...

    Moti Barski!!








    I know sometimes he appears ridiculous, but I can't help admire his perseverence in defending his opinions, and most of all for compiling that wonderful book Battle Programming (though I can't seem to connect the title to the book).

    I mean, seriously, this guy has actually spent time in compiling so many topics related to technology into a book!

    Dude, it is just amazing!

    Well, that didn't take long, but I agree with the sentiments in the thread. The value is certainly above zero.

    Normally I don't chime in negatively to threads in the chit-chat section, but....

    Though this thread may seem amusing to some, isn't it a thread, in part, to attack, embarass, humiliate, and/or flame a forum member? Look at it from a different perspective if needed.

    I personally can't condone such actions and would hope you all do not. That's all I wanted to say.
    Additionally, I can see this as being against the EULA too. See the 4th bullet, depends on one's interpretation.

    I do not think that it was meant to humiliate, not my post anyway, yes Moti is a bit of a madcap character who makes me laugh probably despite of himself, but there was no malice in what i said!

    freedom of expression is very important. I appriciate the programmers honesty, and correcting me when needed, moreover, I respect theire tech skills (nightwalker83 also).

    remember what I said to wierddemon : I consider you my rival not my enemy
    his Acleaner is way cool, though it should include a save feature for the favorites.

    it's all good. (I would like some unmantioned to be less trigger happy with the rate meter reddening)

    moti, you must hold the record for the member who has shifted between a red and a gray reputation dot the most times.

    Yeah, I don't understand that. I've never given a negative, and I doubt I could ever bring myself to do so. I guess I might have for the Snake man, had I been one of the people to uncover his duplicity, but he was long banned by the time I saw that thread. I guess I just don't get all that pissed at anybody on a forum. After all, cuss words are soon forgotten, but a red gem is forever.

    Re: Let's take a moment to pause and congratulate ...

    To LaVolpe and others, you won't believe this, but I haven't posted this thread in jest or mockery. I really admire his effort in bringing out a free ebook that explains, oh well it's not the whole knowledge, but quite a few things that an everyday computer user struggles to achieve. Each and every word of my original post is sincere and means exactly what it conveys.

    I have no intention of humiliating or ridiculing anyone this way, whether it's against the EULA or not. So in case my post/thread gave someone this impression I sincerely apologise for the same. But this thread is really meant to be a salute to Moti's perseverence.

    That's the way I originally read it as well. Again, Lavolpe's point is well taken and I'm still going to vote him for president.

    Hey moti, I have checked your Youtube video of that game... While I was watching that, I got stuck on another video of you, which you have mimicked the voice for a barbie : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEcPYcIra7E
    That was cool

    By the way, is that your pic as the background for the third level of your game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnblm...eature=related

    You made that t-shirt, with "yotamaker" label ? Cool

    Good Suggestion.

    Re: Let's take a moment to pause and congratulate ...

    Well I checked out those two youtube links. The first I really couldn't take watching the whole thing. The second I sort of enjoyed. The quality of the sound isn't very good on either. I noticed a handful of VBForums avatars are being used in the second video, especially moti's and kregg's and I noticed that the views for that second video are up to 27 and I suspect that is in large part due to it being posted in this thread. I remember seeing zaza's, Milk's, Shaggy's, FunkyDexter's, Lord_Rat's and baja yu's avatars being used in addition to moti's and kregg's.

    Moti, I checked out the links too and you, sir, are a very odd fellow indeed.
    Funky I think it's ok to be odd. Weird or odd is relative. What one person thinks of as odd is normal to someone else. Yogananda said that we are all crazy but we don't know it because people of the same type of craziness group together.
    Make as many mistakes as you can as quickly as you can. We want to make sure that we make a great enough number of mistakes in a given amount of time so that we can be successful.
