The mother of all Survivors, where everything started and changed the course of Forum forever :cool:

Don't you bring up that monster again. If you could have a fistfight through the internet, that thread would have started it. :innocent:

Just to set the record straight: that album elimination disaster wasn't actually related to starting Survivor games here. Source: I'm the one who started Survivor games here, I know what I was doing. :p

Ace Frehley's Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies up until 1960:

3-The Day the Earth Stood Still!(1951)
4-This Island Earth!(1954)
5-Things To Come! (1936)
6-20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea!(1954)
7-lnvaders From Mars!(1953)
8-War of the Worlds!(1953)
9-The Thing From Another World!(1951)
10-The Time Machine!(1960)

Why I read them as Maiden songs, especially #1 and #10... :p:lol:
All of them ending with exclamation points!
Just like the text in the old 1960's Marvel Comics by Stan Lee!
Excelsior, true believers!

Naaaah, we haven't had anything remotely similar before that. Other games started to appear en masse during this game's final hour.
The name was different, the rules quite different but the concept (elimination) was the same. No doubt you were the one to establish the Games but not the initiator. This was 7164.

Album Elimination Thread started October 2008 and ended August 2009. Other Survivors started towards end of July 2009 days before the final curtain of that game and when only 2 albums remained.
Now that I see it again, Powerslave did a huge run against TNotB covering a difference of more tan 400 points in 20 days. Oh and we were in finals since 20 February 2009!! And I switched sides to piss you off wow :devil2::edmetal:

You were clearly not following the Metallica thread before. You do now. Also check Survivor No.7 and Future Past threads for more pages. Oh and Funny pictures too!
Ya, I usually slack about getting to other parts of the site. It’s good to know there’s a lot going on though.

And nice to see how progressive attitude towards unnecessary restrictions has changed since 2020.

Too little too late. Laughably little.

EDIT: I saw your spoiler and thought you were talking for here. My bad. There are some laughable measures of "opening" up so I thought you were refereeing to those.

Some friends with TV noticed attempts of reverse brainwashing i.e. local coverage of World Cup via national TV contains considerable time of showing crowds. I'm watching from internet there are no crowds almost. It would take quite a few World Cups to reverse brainwash that Covid isn't the end of the World, I'm afraid! :D

I'm trying to research Iron Maiden venue dates, and the March 9, 1981 Maiden gig in Edinburgh is vexing me.

The IMC has it at the Playhouse Theatre, and ironmaiden.com has it at the Playhouse Theatre. But Mav was able to get a ticket stub for the event, and it was flagged as being at the Odeon Theatre. I checked and as far as I can tell the Playhouse was never rebranded or sponsored as or by Odeon, so I am really wondering if everyone is wrong - or if the venue changed. The Playhouse is a larger venue than the Odeon was so maybe they moved up? But there's no supporting evidence.

I'd trust the hard evidence, thus ticket stub for the win. But since you seem to do a serious research just call them and tell your problem maybe you'll find a definitive answer.

I gave my M1 MacBook Air and I bought the 14" M1 MacBook Pro. Basically to get a decent amount of ports plus the Mag Safe. And I got better speakers, microphones, camera and a much better display, too.

The only down thing is the fans. This one has 2 fans while the MBA was fan-less. However I never ever listen to them. Sometimes I open many windows, videos and tasks then open iStat Menu and fans are always idle. Like always 0 rpm. Even when running Geekbench fans remain idle most of the time.

The only way to get them spinning is to run Cinebench. But even then at ~2500rpm you cannot hear them.
