Visual Update to Stacks in Sta.sh
A new design for stacks in Sta.sh has been launched!
The new look is a visual change for stacks that makes it easier to distinguish stacks and individual items. In addition, when hovering over a stack, the stack will gradually change to display its contents without requiring a click!

All that's left to do is implement premium content and test the last few features, such as the intro animation, links, API integration and all that.
Speaking of which, I should probably go over the plans for the premium content, so I can get all of the backlash and complaints out of the way.
The premium pack includes 20 equips, 4 skills, and 3 summons. (You'll have seen the equips already if you cheated.)
Originally, I made these a bit overpowered, but I've changed them now, so they're only a tiny bit better than regular stuff.
Kongregate have also recommended that I make the Newgame+ feature part of the premium pack, and I pretty much agree with them on this one.
Anyone who finishes the game has already been playing for around 20 hours, and therefor can't really complain that they haven't had a full experience.
And the long-term players are the guys I should really be targeting with this stuff.
The pack will probably cost $7.50.
This figure is based on sales scienc
Victory Over Unforgiveness10 Lessons from an AtheistVictory Over Unforgiveness9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Victory Over Unforgiveness
Immediately after teaching His followers to pray, Jesus gave a warning about allowing unforgiveness to reside in the heart. He said that those who refuse to forgive others won't be forgiven by the Father.
Do not misunderstand Jesus' meaning here. Believers don't lose their salvation when they refuse to forgive. Rather, they break fellowship with God because their unrepentant attitude gets in the way of regular confession and repentance. The Lord cannot ignore sin, and His Spirit will bring wrong behavior to the believer's attention until he or she deals with it.

Let us take a look at Love. We can all agree that God is Love right? Does anyone know how many times love is mentioned in the bible? In the NIV it is found 500 times! Wow right!! How many times is hate mentioned? 74 times SO we can see how much emphasis was put on LOVE. Love is actually putting someone before you.
Did you know that Jesus put you before himself when He came here and walked this earth and suffered and died for you? Talking about selflessness!
Let us look at some scripture referring to love:
Exodus 20: 1-6
1 And God spoke all these words:
2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3 "You shall have no other gods before me.
4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the child

From Alienation to Reconciliation
2 Corinthians 5:14-21
Separation, rejection, and alienation are unpleasant experiences that we usually try to avoid at all costs. But we live in a fallen world, so we cannot totally escape them.
Isolation from other people is bad enough, but what's worse is that many individuals live apart from the heavenly Father. How tragic and futile life must be when it is spent completely detached from its Creator. God planted within each of us a desire to be in relationship with Him, so until we find our connection to Him, we will always feel that something is missing.
And yet as crucia
Skyrim Mod List -Updated with LINKS-So last time I wrote about Skyrim Mods, I asked for people’s suggestions on what mods to use. I thought it might be fun to list a bunch of the mods I have and provide links to where you can download them all.

Guard Dialogue Overhaul http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/23390/?
Updates the Guard dialogue to be much more diverse and has them comment more specifically on your accomplishments in the game rather than repeating the same dialogue over and over again.
Flyable Broomsticks http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/19069
Adds a crafting recipe and a levitation spell that makes brooms flyable. Be a witch!
Adds footprints for when you run in snow or ash. Makes animals and dragons leave prints as well. Good for hunter immersion.

He had a deep soul.
My gosh I loved him in What Dreams May Come. It's tragic irony what happened to Robin when you consider what went on in the film with his wife.
First film of his that I really remembered loving. Carpe Diem!
Jakob the Liar...not one of his big big hits but he was still awesome. The opening scenes blew me away.
Thank you for the laughs, tears and all point in between Robin.

A bunch of people throwing mean and horrible comments at someone is a bad thing no matter what you call it. Don't try to justify it.
There is nothing wrong with being a lolicon. It just mean that you love lolis, in a lot of ways.
I consider lolis to be a completely different species. They never had anything in common with children.
"Children" are those ugly imps that always annoyed me.
What you "have seen" is unrelated to lolicons.
The people you are talking about use lolis as a "secondary option" because they can't have the "real" ones.
To me, lolis are the real ones and there are no secondary options.
Children are more like large insects. Too large to accidentally step on, but too insignificant to me to care about in any way.

Why artist get so pissed off on art thieves? this journal, spread it, share it, so others can see it.Why artist get so pissed off on art thieves?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
5 minutes here for Ninjakato.
"Why do you artists always get so pissed off when someone uses your artwork? You should take it as a compliment!"
"You should take it as a Compliment --"
A compliment would be admiring an artist's work where they post it, and if you really want to use it that badly, complimenting them would be you having enough respect for them to ask first.
Most of us don't get mad because you use it, it's because you use it without asking or pretend you didn't know who/where it came from when there's a link to where you can find the original artist on the image.
Taking someone's car to crash it in a derby isn't a compliment to them any more than taking someone's art to wreck it or claim it is a compliment. More so without asking.

5. Deathgaze (Final Fantasy 12): Though a relatively easy boss to defeat, attempting to spawn the creature is whole other issue. Since it spawns randomly aboard the aerodrome’s air crafts, you could either spend a few minutes spawning it or be unfortunate enough to spend a few hours going back and forth through the city aboard the air craft and having the Deathgaze elude you. A real frustrating creature to spawn.
4. Seymour (Final Fantasy 10- Shiva’s Temple): Though it is possible to defeat this boss on your first attempt, you are more likely not to though. It’s a two stage battle that takes some strategy to win but it’s not the actual battle that’s the annoying part. It is the lengthy cut scene with preludes the fight that gets gamers frustrated. Since in Final Fantasy 10 you are unable to skip scenes, meaning every time your party dies gamers are forced to watch the lengthy cut scene ove

I found out there was a Legacy of Kain game in the works: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=594576 called Dead Sun. And it was *allegedly* canceled due to fears that it "would not meet its sales expectations" (pardon me while I go rage-fuck the everloving shit out of literally every single goddamned thing I own until my twat falls off or runs away in abject terror).

I've been thinking about humanityHello ladies and gents its been a long time since I've done anything. Lately I've been peering at the world from a very gruesome end and I tell you I feel so disgusted of being a human being. I was being philosophical at the moment so I decided to read articles and watch videos relating to such. I went on one side and saw the best of what humanity can offer for a few days and I thought "Humans cannot be evil". Then I went to the darkest part of what humanity has to offer through enough searching I came across endless hours of what a human being can do I never averted my eyes to seeing such horror to the point where I almost drove myself mad; Where I wanted to put these people into a vicious end putting them to even more horrifying torture then they did to their victims. I looked into humanities history and I seem to wholeheartedly agree to Freud theory that we are innately evil. War, torture, murder, power, possessions, food, water, people everything that we have we must have more of.I've been thinking about humanity1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Why don't you just save your breath
All of your words feel like a jail
That blocks the sun and make me stale
Not enough gold in all the world
So why have I surrendered
To your abusive ways
The cracks have opened up to the core
Is there anywhere to go from here now
Sick with the lies consuming our souls
Give me one reason
to take the breath we breathe for granted
Hold it in so long that you forget to say
Give me one reason
to remain confined within the fences
Here with you and my soul on display
Bite my tongue
Swallow the pain
A bit disturbed by these displays
Now we've got nothing to say
The silence growing deadly
So here we are drifting apart
Neither willing to drop their guard
Haven't we got something to say?
The distance growing deadly
From years and years of pain
The cracks go deeper than we can see
Let's take a good look at we are now
Maybe the end's the start that we need
