I misinterpreted, thought we were sending you to sleep. I hate to bore people, though I manage to do it anyway.

Yeah, the recommendations thing on Nexus does mean that many fine older mods go unnoticed, because the default filter on the mod sort is by Most Recommended. I tend to browse by Most Downloaded these days, but even that's not reliable, it's circular, because more people will download it if it has more recommendations, of course.

ghastley
The other drawback to Most Downloaded is that it favours mods that get millions of updates because they're buggy. People will download a new file to get a bug fixed. I'm also unsure if the mods with large numbers of optional files get each component counted.

BAIN lets you put all the options in one archive and select options when you install. It would be a pity if the "ratings" penalise that.

I think they do; example: Vilja has a whole page of downloads; and you need about 8 of them at least per time you download one of her versions. I most def think Emma gets that 8 count in her download count rather than just the (1) main file count.

Well, that never occurred to me. And I've got an OBSE mod-detect script on my unpublished inn that looks out for COBL and suchlike, avoids optional plugins that clog up espspace. But if I wanted to be a bit tarty, I should spam them all off as separate plug-ins then. Not that I would wink.gif

BTW, I'm not implying that Emma has done anything of the sort. For one thing, mod detect is relatively recent for OBSE (V21+?), so likely wasn't even available. Second, some users run screaming from the idea of installing OBSE (can't figure that out really), and some will be running out-of-date versions. Ah, have cake and eat it - add an OBSE-free version - with optional plugins, of course. Now how can that be anything other than virtuous? wink.gif

I think there's a little joke in there. It seems the circumflex accent is rarely used with a u in any real world language, Turkish mostly (and it can mean a number of different things whereever used).

But, from the above link:

QUOTE
In Adnaic, the Black Speech, and Khuzdul, constructed languages of J. R. R. Tolkien, all long vowels are transcribed with the circumflex. In Sindarin long vowels in monosyllabic words take the circumflex and long vowels in longer words take the acute.


Adnaic - so, basically, Sith is the language of Mordor. ('One does not simply talk into Mordor' smile.gif)

I wonder what would happen if you put it into one of those Google "translate into speech" software programs? Mine doesn't respond.

I know what it means, Uleni quoted it in that quotes thread. Just - would have liked to hear it, lol.

Think you'd likely need one of those more sophisticated text readers for blind/partially sighted people. (Quite expensive software, usually.) But it would probably still stumble at . You never know though, some geek might have taught it Adnaic. Sheldon would (and he'd add Klingon to boot).

It actually wasnt too bad. The dream had no fear, it was more a sense of feeling hunted, which sounds really bad, but I found it more interesting/exciting than horrific.


Ive had a far more disturbing dream a few weeks back and I take this recent one over that one any day night.

It actually wasnt too bad. The dream had no fear, it was more a sense of feeling hunted, which sounds really bad, but I found it more interesting/exciting than horrific.


Ive had a far more disturbing dream a few weeks back and I take this recent one over that one any day night.



Those "being hunted" dreams are supposed to mean that something is nagging at you; something you don't want to face but is inevitable.

Looks like you need to bite the bullet and go back to work! laugh.gif

According to the books on dream interpretation, it's supposed to be something you don't want to do, or face; I thought of working immediately! rollinglaugh.gif

People with breathing troubles or sleep apnea stop having dreams, it is one of the warning signals your brain isn't getting enough oxygen while you are sleeping. I think because dreams occur during REM sleep; and if you have trouble breathing your oxygen level goes down and your brain can't get into the REM phase of sleep because it feels like it has to fight for its life/protect itself from the lack of oxygen or something.

If they have a sleep clinic at a medical center near you, should go ahead and be tested, let them measure your oxygen levels while you sleep/your heart rate, etc. while you are sleeping.

Yes. Although having dreams and remembering them are separate issues. I do find, myself, that alcohol consumption has an effect. I'm pretty moderate with this most of the time (within health advice guidelines), except for Xmas and other holidays, visiting friends and so on. So after Xmas week, returning to moderation, I get this bounceback effect with really vivid dreams, I guess I'm making up the REM deficit. (But I totally fail to remember them after an hour or two has passed, am just left with this feeling of having been somewhere awesome.)

Not remembering them is one of those wavy lines - some people remember most of their dreams, some people rarely remember them.

I've had a few nightmares that I still remember years after having them; but the good and Awesome dreams leave my mind as I am waking or soon after.

Memory in general is pretty weird (long-term and short-term). I gave myself a mild headache a little while back trying to figure out how often I can remember remembering something. Then I got to trying to remember remembering remembering (I do not recommend this).

Oh damn. This means I've just remembered trying to remember remembering remembering. Will I remember doing this?

laugh.gif I had a dream where I discovered a formula for an equation that was undiscovered. The equation took up a whole blackboard at school to write out, but every time it worked perfectly - like an E=MC squared moment. So when I woke up, I tried to write the equation down before forgetting it, but the more I wrote the less I remembered what the equation was in the dream.

I've never forgotten having that dream, but can't remember the equation to save my life, lot of good that does me, laugh.gif

I doubt that's the case. My asthma isn't as bad as it used to be(I haven't had an asthma attack or anything in years), and the preventer I'm using is particularly powerful.

Personally, I figure that I'm just subconsciously blocking myself from remembering my dreams or something. Before I stopped remembering them, I had about a six month period where I was having some particularly unsettling dreams, which freaked the [censored] out of me. Haven't remembered a single dream since they stopped.

I've always felt like the universe reveals its secrets to us in our sleep, which is why/how some dreams can be/have been proven to be prophetic - and maybe why we are meant to forget them when we rise.

When I was carrying my son (pregnant with him); I suddenly started to dream poetry, and kept a pad by my bed to write it down on when I woke (hopefully before I forgot the dream).

Most of the time I couldn't remember more than the first two stanzas of the poem and the concept of the remainder of the poem. But some of the best poems I've ever written came from those dreams (real poems, not like the rhymes I put up on here for a joke).

When my son was born, those poetry dreams stopped, as if they were a part of his soul and not mine because they were only there when he was inside me. So I have put away those poems to hold for him; maybe he will use them as lyrics for one of his songs. (He has written +25 songs since he was 15 years old).

Sometimes I'll get the occasional flash, something along the lines of deja vu, that gives me a sort of heads up that they're still happening. I don't think I'd find the dreams as bad now as I did then, but those flashes still kind of freak me out.

So it's probably just as well.

Your medication for asthma may cause strange dreams, I've heard some meds give you some really awful dreams.

I've had so many visions that came true (in a certain way) that everytime I have a strange dream that I'll fully remember, I think of that as some kind of warning/prophetic vision/whatever from the powers that be and be alert for any IRL going-ons that might be it.

It's so uncanny, so eerie, that I'm starting to believe in higher powers that work in bipolar ways. As for deja vu.. Ha! Don't get me started there; the amount of "hey, I think I've been here before in my dreams!" kind of moments I have are ridiculous!

I've had two dreams that were vivid and felt poignant; and both of them turned out to be prophetic. The first predicted the breaking up of my marriage; the second a huge family rift that would set two family members adrift from the rest. There was no doubt they meant something important that had to do with both things; and at the time I had them there was no indication either would happen. But a year later, they both did.

So I have to agree with you on it being a warning. These dreams felt different than the average dream; I did feel like they were a clear message of trouble ahead; and both dreams centered around the people that eventually were affected - so yeah, I think they were prophetic.

Those were the sort of dreams I was having, but mine were more accurate. There was no "certain way" for me, things played out exactly as they had in the dreams. I once got into an argument with a couple of my friends(one was asking the other out), because I was adamant that he'd tried before, and been shot down. Of course, they hadn't had that conversation before, but I remembered every word of it.

Considering at the time I was an atheist, and didn't believe in destiny or any kind of higher power anything, you can see why they'd freak me out.

I tend to get a couple of those deja vu moments a week. The other day, for instance, I had one when my dad was telling me some random factoid from a magazine on computing. I could swear that he told me it before, in the exact same words, but he'd only opened the magazine a couple of minutes earlier.

On an utterly unrelated note, GOG.com sales are just dangerous.

I made the mistake of checking out their sale, and picked up Total Annihilation(with the expansion, one of my favourite RTS games ever), and Total Annihilation Kingdoms(the fantasy equivalent that I never got to play, with expansion) for 99p each! biggrin.gif

Sounds like one could go look for good games at 99p stores now laugh.gif
