Carousing the World; some Video Uplinks, so, Caveat Emptor, Sentients!
I was wondering through the puzzle
one day, when I came across an inneresting bit of art, from Ancient times
, or so the barker said, who was always playing with per ear.
Per told me a tale about creatures in green vales. Creatures who are waiting. For the right time. To gnaw and nibble
Per tried to sell me some of the old out and up
, but I wasn't into that crowd.
An old bunny wandered by, muttering something that I didn't quite get
It's a crazy, beautiful world

Well its about that time.
I've hosted the PBX website since its creation, and for the last two years, have had almost no involvement with the muck. Well its time for the old server to be shut down, and the muck website is the only thing left on it. I'll happily offer an archive of the site to whoever wants to host it next, but to be blunt, I'm paying $60 a month right now to keep one website up. I'm happy to have been able to help this long, but I'd greatly apreciate alternate hosting being found as soon as possible so I can get my machine back from the datacenter.

cross posted becose i'm curiosu if i'm the only one that dose this
Anyone ever catch some one sleep... and dreaming... and talking in there sleep.
And just plop down near them and wisper in there ear a bit to manipulate there dreams?
*Snickers* I love doing that...... I totaly sugest giving it a try... speshaly if some one REALY talks in there sleep a lot.....
hehe the more they talk in there sleep the better idea you get of whats going on in the dream.... and the more you can fuck with them.... You can do just about anything you whant to some ones dream, just be carefull nto to wake 'em up ^^;
Asking "Hey!! Whats that!?!?!" or somethinghing simliar over and over in a socked/scared tone is amusing too if the person your messing with had a good imgination..... crose thats pushing waking them up.... but it's funny, though not so much if there imagination sucks.... in that case you can just resort to feeling in on there imagination "Holly shit is that a _______?!??!!? I don't beleave it!!!" hehe...
Anyway... would like hear imput on anyone doing this....
Or other wise if you haven't I totaly sugest you give it a try!

Now that the furor has died down and folks have settled, we've removed Blip's post from yesterday. It wasn't informative, entertaining or of public interest and all concerned parties have had their immediate issues seen to. If anyone has any questions or comments, please feel free to contact myself or OR. Thanks.
So let it be pixelated, so let it be done.

Official OR proclamation of agreement!
As OR, I hereby stamp XOR's post with my toomanycolorstocomprehend stamp of concurrence. If you really need to contact any of us Functions about issues, you can page-mail either XOR or OR, or you can email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I like to joke around and say that I like to use a "iron fist in the velvet glove" treatment when the situation calls for it. In this case, I'm taking my chrome-plated Functionhammer and putting on its padded silk-and-velvet cover before using it.
1. If you don't like with another player, I ask, nay demand
that you deal with it in a civil manner. We all agreed that we're adults during chargen and I'm holding each and every one of you to that. You don't have to like all the other players on PBX, but you are expected to treat them as you would want to be treated. If you don't like someone, you have the absolute right to not interact with that person. Verbal abuse is not taken lightly here. I think we can all agree that words have power and the Functioncore will not stand having that sort of power abused on the muck or in these LJ communities.
2. If you have a problem with another player, taking the issue public is not
an appropriate response. Two things were accomplished today: The paged altercation was brought to the attention of the Functions and the general muck populace was informed of it and riled up with people taking sides. Only one of those things was required and it wasn't the latter. If you have a problem with another player, inform a Function. Both OR and XOR check in every few days and rest assured the issue will
be addressed. If you need a Function right now
, you can page me directly but I ask that you only do it in times of need.
3. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY
speaks for Puzzlebox except the Functions, and even then they'll be doing it as a committee. There should be nobody outside of the Functioncore that purports, claims or implies that they are acting as spokesperson and/or public relations for the muck. If someone tells you "We think blah blah blah" or "Our position is etcetera" and their name isn't AND, OR, XOR, NOT or NOR, what they're giving you is their own opinion. They have neither the permission nor the responsibility nor the authority to make statements on behalf of the muck.
4. And finally, the situation brought to our attention this morning has been dealt with. I ask that you now stop with the fingerpointing and the justifications and the demands and the outrage. The matter is closed.
So let it be pixelated, so let it be done.

Thank you and I'm sorry.
Thank you: those who've enriched my life with those meaningful, playful moments and to those who I'm lucky to have read about.
I'm sorry. I've been dealing with quite an intense recent experience at a local Fred Meyer that futzed up my spiritual and emotional works. Not to mention the whole Katrina media frenzy, which brought some internal processes to the surface for me that I just had to write about one day in someone's LJ, in hopes that something positive could be garnered from it (since then, I've come across the article "The Big Uneasy" in the October 2004 issue of National Geographic. It is about the vanishing Louisana wetlands. The part I glom on to here is the point about after the levees were first built, to protect NOLA, less nutrients flowed into the estuaries, which meant less food for the plants there, which means less plants overall. This goes to show to me, yet again, that everything has consequences, oftentimes unforseen, and that it is impossible to try to protect everyone from everything; life happens wether you want it to or not. This is not something I get depressed about--it is something I find sobering, humbling, and encouraging). I have found myself falling into the 'trap' of LJ, the easyness of it, the condensation of meaning from the authentic and immesurably complex real world into the instant-gratification 24/7 world of LJ. I am vain and proud and selfish. I know nothing and am imperfect. Life goes on, I change, others change around me.
My last post was me, during this time, coming across a situation that made me think immediately of 'Oh no, there goes Paradise' and me still trying to maintain my poise and sense of humour whilst writing out sentences to try to help those who could need them in the future. Advice. Or needless meddling. I know I can't save you all from the world, yourselves, or others. That the hurts, big and little, and in-between, are all part of life. That life is like coming to the realization, on one's own, that life is here to shower you with blessings. And oh, what experiences to have on the way. It is quite the ride.
I keep being reminded that my words are powerful and that I have a responsibility.
I've been wanting to 'retire' from PBX for a while now; it's been floating in my subconscious, looking for expression. I think the move, so to speak, has been to retire Zoe. Most of my narratives seem to be of wanderers searching for something, searching for home. So there I went and wrote what I wrote. But I know, as some of you do, that PBX has become more than just the BBS and the LJ communities; the house that is PBX is alive with family. Anyone, feel free to 'visit' me at my LJ (contact information can be found therein).
Hugs and Namaste. Current Mood: Pronoiac

In Sea: Et en Arcadia Ego
It's the CRC, silent, lit by the hyperglow of the many machines, each that takes you to a different place.
Zoe is smiling. The marks on per arms are gone, the shakes have stopped. The machine to that Dark, Dim world lies covered in hungry dust. A strut reaches out to touch per paw-equivalent. It is warm and reassuring.
"It's over, isn't it?" per asks the air.
There is the close-by sound of laughter.
"Well, I guess I am all packed up then and my goodbyes have been sent. Where do we go now?"
William Pullman takes per by the paw-equivalent and grins, "Let us find out, shall we?"
A bit of paper, plain paper, curled up on the table, written in ancient ink:Once a dream did weave a shade
O'er my angel-guarded bed,
That an emmet lost its way
Where on grass methought I lay.
Troubled, wildered, and forlorn,
Dark, benighted, travel-worn,
Over many a tangle spray,
All heart-broke, I heard her say:
"Oh my children! do they cry,
Do they hear their father sigh?
Now they look abroad to see,
Now return and weep for me."
Pitying, I dropped a tear:
But I saw a glow-worm near,
Who replied, "What wailing wight
Calls the watchman of the night?
"I am set to light the ground,
While the beetle goes his round:
Follow now the beetle's hum;
Little wanderer, hie thee home!"
--'A Dream' by William Blake
And somewhere ELSE among the struts and hidden recesses of the Puzzle, a signal goes out: 'Wanted--one Creatrix. Expansive accomodations. Multiple pov's adored but not to be obsessed about.'
Out of Sea: there you go and there you all are, you beautiful, wonderful, mixed-up beings. Namaste. Current Mood: Deifiloving

whats the update on the flow of applications?
I haven't realy been thinking about it as of late becose ya know the saying "watch pot won't boil" *luaghs* but was watching SCI FI and they twilight zone was about this world where everyone in it was engineared at the age of 18 to be the "perfect image of bueity" ...... they got the choice of like 8~12 or so bodies they could be made into and they would be like that the rest of there long long long perfectly healty lifes.... egeninred never to be sick... never to be sad or hurt.... always happy and wonderfull.... and always looking the same, needing name tags to tell people apart even....... *luaghs* made me think of what part of UP warp (seams to me that could very well be possalbe there) XD.....
and now i got PB stuck on the brain >.

had an excellent idea
:I have to say I'm one of those guilty of being scared of everything, it's my own online shyness that does me in really. Sure, I can interact with people here on LJ just fine, but withen the realms of roleplay I just tend to lose my nerve.
...I do follow alot of PBX stuff, ongoing storylines and characters, because I really do enjoy the whole setting.
Here's an off the wall suggestion? Not to bring other gallery application systems into this, but both Yerf and Artvark have an LJ group "bootcamp" sort of thing. Where people post their psuedo-applications for the public to prod and critique. Would it help lift the stress of only a few people reviewing applications if the same type of thing was applied to PBX? It might help to lessen the feeling of "omg, I can't join the club I don't have a coolpass! WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK OF ME?" if someone could post their character ideas and get peoples thoughts and suggestions on them somewhere other then privately? Kinda like...introducing someone at a party instead of being locked in something like a job interview. Right now, applying to PBX feels very much like getting ready for an interview, with no idea what the outcome will be. It's kinda scary. [How should I dress? What are they going to ask me? Ahhh!?]
Also, it could help break the ice if someone posts a neat character concept and people are like, "What are you waiting for! We want to play with you!".
Any objections? I'd love to see something like this, because the level of hurt feelings I've been hearing about in PBX feedback has been nagging at me a little, and it really makes me wonder how many potentially good players are out there who just need a little work. XOR and I have really tried to give them that work - that's one of the reasons the app process is so time-consuming and elaborate - but I think that was a serious design error on my part. Neogeen's suggestion, of setting up a public board, might be more practical. I still fear will people get nervous about exhibiting their unfinished ideas in public view, but let's face it -- especially if we do the right kind of social engineering to give it a friendly, casual atmosphere, it's less forbidding than being put up in front of two Authority Figures in a secret trial...

mystik beached on Hermes' backwards flying trick
Surfacing here from the wing'd lad's stupid rays just to hand out some music that I have come across that is lush and visual and vibrant (as I was wandering looking at a link that Unciaa had found on a nifty looking game called Metronome). I afear that the site will work well only on speedy systems; I don't really know, but here it is:This Music Current Mood: Mellowmic
