The Weekly Click #19
News posted 16th September, 2007 by Flava  
Well LIJI has been bugging me to carry on with The Weekly Click, so here it is. Apart from happenings in the click convention, there hasn't really been much to report on (or I've been too lazy to look stuff up!). Anyway, here is what I've managed to find today..

  • Patrick has given Clickteam forum visitors a nice little online game simply called Cow Racing. It doesn't appear to be finished, but a lot of Gwerdy chat visitors have been racing their cows fairly frequently lately. Click here to view Patrick's forum post.

  • LIJI has opened Neatwares Home, a site which offers you news from all the top click sites, a click search and a list of the latest extensions. It looks to be a fairly useful site, especially if you want all the latest news from several different click websites. Click here to visit Neatwares Home.

  • Chris Street has recorded the Click Convention, as you may know. A few videos have been placed on YouTube, but all of them are also available at the link below. You can watch Jam and Villy's presentation on extension development, or see how progress on Mr Stump's Dentures 2 is coming along. Click here to view the convention videos

  • GameBuilder started a halloween competition last week - prizes include MMF2 developer and standard editions, and all you have to do is create a halloween themed game. If you want to enter, you'll have to put your name down soon over at the GameBuilder forums. Click here to visit the Halloween Competition post.


  • Not sure if some of you noticed, but the site now has an actual reviews section and re-designed reviews system. You can now view all past reviews by clicking the reviews link at the top. If there is a game you enjoyed or have some criticisms of, then feel free to write your own review!

    It's a pitty that Polish informing community site is faster than TDC/TK/NH all together with informing

    And it should be Time from Time weekly click because it isn't weekly from few months..

    And if Neatwares Home will be working there is no sense for TWC because NH will be faster

    Good job LIJI
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    Thanks Timmy!
    Bugging Flava did pay off after all!
    Fanotherpg - Neatwares Home is working, and TWC still makes sense. Why? Because NH collects information automatically from TDC, which include the very informative Weekly Click.

    Circy it's just because you use Internet Exploder/Internet Exploited/Idiot Exploiter.

    It EVEN does the dishes! ... when LIJI's finished modding it

    Woo! Good to see this back!
     
    Posted by Johnny Look 16th September, 2007

    ...and it also might make KlikHost work !
     
    Posted by Fanotherpg 16th September, 2007

    Ou yea LIJI sorry I didn't notice that But it's still to low tempo for TWC
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    It's not a low tempo, Flava just took a break.
    A really long one. -_-

    What's wrong with IE7 =/ ?
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    What's right with IE7 =/ ?
     
    Posted by DaVince 16th September, 2007

    What's wrong with all-day usage of IE7? The only bad thing I can find about it is their standards breaking stuff and the ActiveXes... =/
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    Having IE uninstalled or at least disabling Javascript, ActiveXes and images and using a real browser really makes your computer safer.
     
    Posted by AndyUK 16th September, 2007

    Is it somehow Internet Explorers fault that people create viruses?
     
    Posted by Phredreeke 16th September, 2007

    No, but it's Internet Explorer's lack of safety that allows easy spreading of those.
     
    Posted by Tim 16th September, 2007

    Lol! Only because it's the most used browser ever etc
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    No, it's because it supports ActiveXes.
    Firefox for example can't be used to spread actual viruses. There might be some code that make it crash or malfunction, but it's really nothing like IE.
     
    Posted by Ski 16th September, 2007

    Internet Explorer is the best Web-surfing browser I or you have ever used, LIJI
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    /me denies any rumor that says that I used IE for something other than downloading Firefox/Google pack or check if IE was successfully uninstalled.
     
    Posted by Phredreeke 16th September, 2007

    FireFox security strategy: Open source, anyone can look at it. Lots of people do, so bugs are found fast. People search for bugs to improve the software.
    Microsoft security strategy: Closed source, so (comparatively) few people can search it for bugs. People search for bugs to exploit it.
     
    Posted by Phredreeke 16th September, 2007

    Microsoft Security Policy: There's no security flaw unless people know about it.

    lol
     
    Posted by Tim 16th September, 2007

    Yeah, but IE IS still the most used browser etc
     
    Posted by Phredreeke 16th September, 2007

    I think more people drive a Ford than a Ferrari, does that make Ford a better car?
     
    Posted by Tim 16th September, 2007

    That's rather different - if everyone could afford a ferrari then everyone would have one. Fords are typically inexpensive compared to Ferrari's Phred, you can't compare that at all

    Anyways I'm all for FF personally, I hate IE with a passion.
     
    Posted by Tim 16th September, 2007

    ... Unless you're talking about a FordGT
     
    Posted by DaVince 16th September, 2007

    "Firefox for example can't be used to spread actual viruses."

    Of course it can. No software is 100% secure, and no software will ever be.
     
    Posted by Johnny Look 16th September, 2007

    My BSOD app is safe.
     
    Posted by Ricky 16th September, 2007

    I like firefox.
     
    Posted by LIJI 16th September, 2007

    and so doea every BODY else
     
    Posted by Ski 16th September, 2007

    L is for LIJI. L is for lame. L is for leave right now -.-

    L is also for lol.
     
    Posted by Phredreeke 16th September, 2007

    I though you and LIJI were buddies? You both hate Phizzy and want him banned.
     
    Posted by Johnny Look 16th September, 2007

    L is for love

    It's a private joke
     
    Posted by Dr. James MD 16th September, 2007

    I use Safari 'cuz it's the fastest
     
    Posted by Tim 16th September, 2007

    I thought Opera was? By about 20 milliseconds?
     
    Posted by DaVince 17th September, 2007

    I use Firefox because it's the most customizable
     
    Posted by alastair john jack 17th September, 2007

    I use Firefox because every other browser stuffs up my computer.
     
    Posted by CsaR 17th September, 2007

    Well the reason there are some many viruses for IE is because it has been the most used webbrowser for such a long time. I'm sure there would be alot more discovered security holes in FF if it was the most used webbrowser over the same period of time as IE.

    Though IE is still shit with breaking the standars
     
    Posted by Tim 17th September, 2007

    That was my point too CsaR

    "Lol! Only because it's the most used browser ever etc "
     
    Posted by Johnny Look 17th September, 2007

    yeah because it's the most used and ,more important, because it has way more security holes than firefox, which already led Microsoft to be sued by the EU, along with the fact that it couldn't be uninstalled.
     
    Posted by The Chris Street 17th September, 2007

    I thought Microsoft was being sued for ensuring competition elimination by automatically bundling Windows Media Player with its products.
     
    Posted by Johnny Look 17th September, 2007

    They keep being sued for so much reasons, it's hard to keep track of all of them.
     
    Posted by Ricky 17th September, 2007

    I don't think they should get sued for that kind of stuff. I don't like the alternatives that cost money any way. All the best software is free: Firefox, zplayer, ffdshow, ogg vorbis, audacity ...
     
    Posted by LIJI 17th September, 2007

    Circy it was the same thing but with IE.

    Posted by Dr. James MD 17th September, 2007

    All the best software is free: Firefox, zplayer, ffdshow, ogg vorbis, audacity ...

    Pro Tools, Logic, Photoshop, Final Cut, Aperture.

    Yea.

    XBMC lol
     
    Posted by Bibin 17th September, 2007

    Opera owns.
     
    Posted by LIJI 17th September, 2007

    Opera owns. Firefox owns. Safari owns. Konquerer owns. IE just got owned.
     
    Posted by Tim 17th September, 2007

    Lol Flava - you could have made the information on there now being a review link a little more clear in case people missed that anyway! haha
     
    Posted by AndyUK 17th September, 2007

    I don't seem to be able to actually race with others on that cow racer.
     
    Posted by Knudde (Shab) 17th September, 2007

    I think patrick is the only one who can start a race ATM. Could be wrong though.
     
    Posted by Ski 18th September, 2007

    yes he is _ He's passing the source code on to me so I can add things on to it, but I think he forgot I can't actually code
