I converted all smites to cookies on a one to one basis.  Smitten cookies taste just as good :D

Also yesterday I had my first smite and now I've had another. I'm thinking maybe we disable that ;)
I smote your ass good.

I'm totally instituting the THAC0 system I put into place over at ENO too. Fuck y'all if you don't like it. THAC0 for life.

What does this actually do?

When you get mad and throw a bottle of beer at Lego, it affects your odds of scoring a direct hit.

I've had quite the giggle contemplating various conjugations of that phrase.

Does that mean that Tim's ass was 'smitten'?  or is it 'smoted'? :P .  Given the dual meaning of 'smitten' I'm almost inclined to vote for that one. :P

All I know is that Sam did something with Tim's ass and Tim ended up with cookies.

Did Pix toss Tim's cookies?  Or just on Thursdays?

This? http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=thac0

I had to google and found the same information and I'm still lost... I mean, I know about armour class from playing Diablo I/II/III, but I don't get it.

Anyway, more importantly, I see the cookie count next in people's profiles, but I can't see the button to click.

It's a term from early editions of Dungeons & Dragons. Effectively, it was a rating of how good you were in combat, with lower numbers being better, 20 being the general "level 1 character" score - it represented the number you had to beat on a 20-sided-die To Hit a target of Armor Class 0 (AC ranged from -10 to 10). As you leveled up, your THAC0 went down.

In later editions, it was judged that this was obtuse and people are terrified of negative numbers (and certainly can't add them), so the whole THAC0 system was scrapped and replaced by the more well-known (now) "higher armor class is better" system.

THAC0 is and will always be the superior system. No matter what the mathematically challenged say. :P

Anyway, more importantly, I see the cookie count next in people's profiles, but I can't see the button to click.

There's a "give cookie" button under each person's avatar in a thread.

Obviously I never played D&D! So I guess that number will go down as post count goes up?

Thanks, I see it now and since it's right next to the count it makes my question look especially dumb :-\ Honestly, it wasn't displaying... (think I might have been logged out automatically).
