Another possibilty would be the Epson Workforce series. The Workforce 30 retails for about $70. It uses 5 cartrides (two black). They have regular and high-capacity cartridges. The black goes for about $17 ($20 for the high-capacity) and the 3 colors go for about $12.50 ($17 for high-capacity). I us...

Reaction to 1.0.1030.1215

I've been playing as the Trickster, and I hope he hangs around after Halloween (or at least his weapon does!) Magic Pumpkins, and thus Exploding Pumpkins seen quite plentiful, Pumpkinhead Skeletons and Scarecrows are a fun addition. I've gotten whacked a couple of times, but laregly because I lost c...

Agreed. There may be dozens of exploding pumpkins waiting when I return to town, but I'm usually returning to town because I'm out of pumpkins :)

Just a little guesswork here. The first and third bugs (portrait corruption and difficulty buttons) sound like problems I encountered with IE 6.0 The middle one sounds like the reverse of auto-equip's function, which makes me wonder if the confusion is due to normal (or at least expected) functionin...

15-day disabled list

Something screwy happened with my motherboard today. My graphics went out completely. The tech guy said that my graphics card was perfectly fine, it was the PCI slot on the motherboard that had gone bad. I have an onboard graphics chipset which allows me to do other things, but it's not capable of p...

I agree that this seems like too much too close together.

I'm sure that everyone will be satisfied with beta updates once a week and release updates once a month, both supplemented by an occassional extra update to address nasty problems that crop up (ie CTD bugs).

It certainly makes sense that, if the number of days affects the score, too many days (whatever "too many" may be) would lower your score. As bobisimo mentioned, more days usually means more gold and/or food.

1.0.1002.1042 Seneschal Easy Short

Easy, Short, all Green Um ... about the character name. This was supposed to be my 2nd try as an Assassin (thus Ass2), somehow Seneschal was chosen instead. Things went pretty well throughout. When times got tough for my character, I added an archer. When numbers began to worry me, I added a second ...

I like to have a "2nd sword" along with me, but he/she invariably dies. I finally went with the majority view and took first one and then two archers along. The result was my first victory since the second or third "beta" build. Rather than taking a healer along, I had two Herbalists churning out po...

In many stories male and female dwarfs are indistinguishable. The "Watch" books in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series include a Dwarf watchman called Cheery Longbottom, whose gender is only guessed by the fact that she starts wearing lipstick (hard to see under a full beard) and her chainmail tunic ...

I don't think it's quite ready for release yet. Personally, I'm having all sorts of problems winning, even on easy. Perhaps it's play style as I tend to die quite a bit, and that leads to a loss Fame is outrageous. I get 1 pt per kill, plus maybe a bonus point for the site, but I lose 20 if I die? I...

Just my opinion, but if I get that "Waiting for Server" message and it lasts more than, say, 60 seconds, I exit hinterland entirely and re-launch. It usually boots right up.

Although I use the icons to decide which way to expand my little "empire", I always check the label in the Location Info area as I enter it. If it says "Spider Nest" or "Orc Patrol", I know there are no Herbs there. If my priority is finding Herbs (or Water or Game...), I back out and look elsewhere.

I didn't know that! But then, I've had awful luck finding Herbs lately, thus - no Herbalists. :(
