I was referring to magic as in BS ways to cover up BS.

If I just read that correctly then I believe you just called magic BS...would this be correct?(I'm partially messing with you here, but the question still stands)

As it stands I'd like to get the next round started well before the 25th of June. I'm aware that this probably won't be the case, so will try to negotiate on a case-by-case basis, even though my ability to do so is limited. Email me any considerations you need to bring to my attention, but do so quickly.

Understandable I suppose. I will see what I can possibly get done with this later today if possible.

Ew. But note that since the hall is in the middle of the castle, you'll have to wind your way down the staircase, battle across the front foyer and up the path to the moat. And that moat is pretty grotty.

Might even draw you not being in the moat, then.

SCIENCE!

Strop visits Ulimitedpanda for the second time. Strop wants his starsigns read. Ulimitedpanda wants an autograph from Strop.

Oooops...

On the deadline: I voiced my anti-deadline opinion so strongly so that my objections would be ignored in full force. As Cenere has pointed out, I can produce quality work in a short amount of time, and my relative busyness should not get in the way of that. Also, compared to what Strop's doing, I feel guilty for whining about it in the first place.

I am, however, still worried about the deadline for one reason: It is a cooperative entry. I expect to communicate with my partner a lot. I warn whoever pairs up with me (looking like Crimson): I am probably the hardest to work with out of any of us. I will want to spend a lot of time talking about how the entry should go, trading ideas, and devising a strategy. That's not even getting into the actual writing. Oops, got sidetracked there.

So, uh, my first choice is still Crimson. If everyone's fine with that (where's Poison?), he and I should start working on this.

Very well, we will need a way to contact each other though. I can go into more detail concerning this project with you after about 3pm AG Time(US Eastern Time Zone) today, but still for right now I think it would be a good idea to discuss an effective way to discuss this through our messenger possibly(If that made any sense to you)

You know that just occured to me, what about poison's opinion?

Are we just going to like, disclude it and have thoad be on his own or...?

Speaking of, I don't see poison at all, really... Man. I think I just got the sharp end of the stick D: Oh well. Enough of my griping...

If I just read that correctly then I believe you just called magic BS...would this be correct?

Not quite. When I say magic as in BS I think of unexplained no-consequences magic that you say in order to avoid an answer.

AG magic is generally different. AG magic is technically coding and the ability to change the world... literally. It makes sense.

Saying "uh... Magic." is not a suitable reason for me, though. Why? Because I'm snooty.

Hmm. I just poked Poison via email. I think he's actually away but should be back tomorrow. I really should have thought of that before setting the deadline.

Given this I'd just like a progress report on the 20th, if you please, then we can gauge how much time we actually need.

I think the term you're looking for is either "cop-out" or "filling the gaps", where insufficient rationale is given for a system. Useful verbs include "elaborate", "justify" etc. The term "magical thinking" is actually used to describe when a person's "A -> B" thought process makes no logical sense, but this is used to describe a function rather than a single instance.

And a very important date it is.

I've been without internet for the past four days... I got back from camp on Saturday.

So I'm teaming up with Thoad, right?

where's Poison?

Next to Waldo.
