Just in case you missed it on Dan’s blog…

Go check out the post he’s made about the joys of Darkside Active Listening.

Kudos to Dan for putting more thought into the background mechanics of it, too; whilst I’m not entirely sure it’s a compliment to have my pet “force deliberately mishearing” tactic described as ‘something truly bitter and twisted’ (heh. Actually yeah, that rocks) I’m well impressed to find out the reason it *works* is because they move on in their mental script…

…And there was me just abusing the force by feel.

I now feel enormously cruel and evil. It’s fun.

Also enormous desire to play SW JK 3: Jedi Academy, only I’ve no idea where the damn game’s gone; it went AWOL about the same time as my ‘Kind Hearts & Coronets’ DVD, I think… Don’t suppose Dan’s got an .iso or two kicking about?

    What’s with the screwed ‘blog times?!

    You posted this just now and it says 02:39. Sort it. :P

    Should be fixed. Was somehow on GMT +2!

    And now, wonderfully, my first comment appears after yours. Chronologically screwed.

  4. On March 23, 2006 Statto says:

    Ah, fuck, and my third comment also before my first. And now, presumably, this one.

  5. On March 23, 2006 JTA says:

    Fixed it. Edited the timestamp on the first comment.

    Congratulations, you no-longer have chronologically weird comments.

    Er. Although you now do have two which make no real sense at all. Hey ho.

    Just blame it all on a causality loop. Throw in the word “paradox” somewhere, and anyone questioning your technical skills will instantly be sidetracked into a philosophical debate on the logic of time-travel and the merits of killing your own granny.

    It’s like dark side active listening, but less subtle.
