  1. Terrae Expungnandae 5.0 rediscovered

    A few months ago, while browsing an old file archive, I came across a folder labeled, "TWC". Knowing that could only mean forum material I opened it up. I was mildly surprised to discover that it contained files from my beta-testing days back in 2006. The biggest prize, however, was a zip file with the Terrae Expungnandae 5.0 installer. Two versions in fact. I waxed nostalgic as I recalled a different time and place, spending many hours beta-testing the TE mod.

  2. Why Google still sucks!

    I am most likely going to violate my own Terms of Service here, and I really do not care. Moderators, leave this post alone!

    In 2013 TWC was banned from Google Adsense for three policy violations. That's right, three. On a site that at the time had more than 2 million posts and 60k members. And just what were these flagrant violations?

  4. Hitai Talks About Chess: Problems in the English Opening

    Well I haven't updated this in a while, so why not brush the cobwebs off this old blog and write something interesting.

We had chess tournaments and there was even a member of Gaming Staff responsible for chess related matters (a good buddy of mine actually, who has sadly been absent in recent times). If you see me around the forums posting, underneath my avatar it has two extra fields: Tournaments Joined and Tournaments Won. This was ...

  5. Hands on Integration

    The other week I went to a Inter-Religion Integration Seminar.

    The Bishop came, laid his hands on my hand and said, “By the will of Jesus Christ, you will walk today!”

    I smiled and told him I was not paralyzed.

    The Rabbi came, laid his hands on my hand and said, “By the will of God Almighty, you will walk today!

    I was less amused when I told him there was nothing wrong with me.

    The Mullah came, took my hands and said, “Insha Allah, ...
