Dans Fens admits his degree is unaccredited

Dans Fens considers Derek a valid PhD. Quote:

"Not only will I not divulge any more information about my qualifications, I
will refer to Derek as Dr Smart."

So Dan if you consider Derek a "Doctor" knowing full well that his degree
was from an unaccredited school listed as a degree mill in Dr. Bear’s book
then that must mean your degree is also unaccredited and from a degree mill
since you regard his degree equal in every way to yours.  Thanks for
admitting that.

Wizardry 8 Beats BCM to Shelves

Anyone find it interesting that Wizardry 8, in development since god
knows when, hits the shelves before BCM does?  And from the initial
reviews, Wiz 8 is a really good game.

Perhaps some game developer with a sense of humor (which also
immediately eliminates DKS and Cleve-boy) will start embedding jokes in
their games that reference Derek and the flame war.  But then again,
Python’s already done it with the line …"Bring in the machine that
goes *BING*"…what visionaries.

Carry on (as we know we’ll do),

IW2 : playable without a joystick?

Is IW2 enjoyable to play with just a mouse/keyboard combo or do you really
need a thrustmaster jupiter ring mega controller with extendible force
feedback fx?

CHARTER: comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.space-sim

This unmoderated group is for the discussion of space flight
simulation games. Space simulations are games which simulate a  real
or theoretically plausible spacecraft (using either non-fictional or
"science fictional" technology as its basis), and allow players to
manipulate it as if it were real. Examples include X-Wing, Wing
Commander, I-War, Microsoft Space.

This group does not cover the same subject as
comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.flight-sim, although they are related. The
flight-sim group covers simulation within realistic parameters using
contemporary or historical technology within an Earth-atmosphere.
This group is concerned with flight outside a terrestrial atmosphere
using real or hypothetical technology under realistic or unrealistic

This group also does not cover the same subject as
comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.action, although they are related. The action
group covers games with simple controls and simple goals. Space-sims
generally allow for complex and detailed vehicle manipulation, while
incoporating complex goals in "missions" that may require several
steps to achieve.

The following types of articles are not part of the charter:

- articles which contain personal attacks of any sort, ad hominem
  arguments, etc.
– blank messages, test messages, MAKE.MONEY.FAST, binaries,
  uuencoded messages, spam messages.
– Advertisements unreated to space-simulation computer gaming or
  computer gaming hardware.

Dan Fens *is* a Neural Network(tm)

Given Derek’s recent ramblings and admissions on the use of neural
networks, and Ai modeling, I suupose Derek feels he has something to
prove to the public.  Since BCM is not available to laugh at, I submit
to you that Dan Fens in fact *is* a neural network created in the name
of DKS.  

Now I say "in the name of" because we know Derek hasn;t worked with NN
prior to BC*.* and he probably "hired someone from <fill in country> to
do the work for him."  That person is likely still awaiting payment for
his work.

Now for you doubters, bear with me.  Why create someone as lame as Dan
Fens?  Easy.  Derek has a God Complex.  And being such a deity, it is
natural for him to create an NN in his own "image".  Thus behold DF,
complete with idiosyncratic spelling and mannerisms, and complete with a
fake PhD.  And if DF is truly a NN based on DKS’s neural engrams, is not
DF=DKS?  How can we explain this using Derekology?  I’m working on my
PhD, you know….
