    Use phpBB3.


    Nearly every forum service, sans the visually-horrific proboards and the beautiful IPboard, uses phpBB3. I doubt he's coding it from the ground up.

    posted a message on why are there 64 items to a stack?
    Quote from FateDog

    64..... everything about 64.

    As a product of 8 x 8, it is the expression of a realized totality and perfect.

    According to R. Allendy, this number represents the "static realization - even number - of the cosmic unit - 6 + 4 = 10 - in the blooming of the beatitude. It is the final liberation which allows to the being to realize its full individuality after its cycle 4, in the links of the cosmic Karma, 60". It would represent also the natural forces acting in union with the providential determinations of the Cosmos.

    Being the cube of 4, the number 64 represents the physical world of the four elements to the third power, in the plenitude of its expansion.

    According to Claude of Saint-Martin, this number represents the "complement of the octagonal circle where the powerful number, after having covered all the depths of area and of the existence of the beings, restore the unit in its simple number, there where it was divided, and the action where reigned the nothingness and the death".

    Symbol of the paramount chaos.


    It is the number of generations from Adam until Jesus according to the Gospel of Luke.


    The mother of Buddha had, according to the tradition, to born in a family endowed of 64 species of qualities.

    Age of the Virgin Mary when she died, according to visions of Ann-Catherine Emmerich.

    The mathematician W. R. Ball reports the following legend: In a temple of Benares, there is a dome under which a plate of bronze marks the center of the world. On this plate, there are three vertical stems of one cubit height. During the creation of the world, God placed on one of the stems 64 discs of gold of different sizes, the largest at the basis, the others going decreasing. In top, the smallest disc. This accumulation is the tower of Brahma. Night and day, without stop, the priests relay to transfer the discs from a stem to another. Only one disc must be take at once and it is forbidden to place a disc on another of lower diameter. When the 64 discs will be transferred from the tower of Braham to an other stem, the temple and the Universe will crumble. This will be the end of the world.

    The Chinese tradition wants that Confucius has had 64 generations since Hoang-ti, founder of the dynasty.

    The 64 devas of the Abhavara class, at the Indians.

    The 64 Koua (hexagrams) of the Yi-King.

    To the funerals of Alexander the Great, the mortuary chariot was dragged by 64 mules.

    The 64 persons in China who carry the skin of the defunct emperor.

    The 64 "tantras" (books) of the "tantrism", which is a form of Hinduism.

    The magic square using the first sixty four numbers is associated with the Mercury planet and has for sum 260.

    64 7 6 60 61 3 2 57
    49 55 11 13 12 14 50 56
    41 18 46 21 20 43 23 48
    32 34 27 37 36 30 39 25
    40 26 35 29 28 38 31 33
    17 42 22 44 45 19 47 24
    9 15 51 52 53 54 10 16
    8 63 62 4 5 59 58 1

    The 64 nucleotides of the genetic code.

    The 64 squares of a game of chessboard.


    And someone just harnessed the power of the wikipedia.

    That, or they have a ridiculously extensive knowledge of random numbers.

    Dogs have their own failures as well. For example, my Maltese is terrified of ascending/descending... wait for it... stairs >.>

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's because of limitations in Java which don't allow more than 64. But, spawned or inventory-edited items can be in stacks well over the thousands, so I'm not positive. 'Course, it could just be a number Notch stuck with.

    posted a message on How good is your handwriting?
    It's very readable in print but a bit difficult when it's in cursive. Of course, it also depends on how focused I am at the time said words were being written and how fast I needed to write them. (I.E. Note taking)

    I'd whip out my tablet and give some examples, but it's rather late.

    Quote from Embrausre

    Explain how nuclear power is a good thing. Also, flight would've been become better and better regardless of war.


    It's a clean and mostly-safe power source. Sure, if it's screwed up it's disastrous, but it can be a great help. However, its bombs should never be used against living things... They're just too powerful. I pray that they're never again used on this Earth.

    Quote from Mr Torb

    No, but it'd be kickass if I had them. It'd be sucky if anybody else had them, though.


    They wouldn't be super if everyone else had them. It'd just be part of our race, really.

    I used a hyperbole, but alright. I have no clue if an Evangelion is real nor what it is, but at least a Suzuki Motorcycle is obtainable.



    An Eva's obtainable. We just need to clone godlike beings which formed humanity and the angels according to a certain anime. Then we just need to
    take the souls of the pilot's mothers and place them inside their bodies.

    Can it end the world? Nope. But an Evangelion can.
