      Is it possible to have too many synthesizers and effects? Maybe. But I'm doing my best to disprove it.

        It all depends on how they are used it seems like. I remember how I used to dislike the sound of an Electric Guitar, but after listening to certain types of songs that use the E. Guitar in a way sounding good to my ears, I began to appreciate it more. If the many synthesizers and effects blend well together I'd imagine the result will be fantastic.

        Well, I try to choose wisely amongst the selection. Some go together predictably, others don't, and occasionally I discover combinations that ought to sound awful turn out to work really well. I rarely can guess ahead of time what will work and what won't — which means I've got lots of half-finished tracks lying around!

      Wanted to name a new mobile world "New Ashby-de-la-Zouch" — too long. "New Ashby-DLZ" will have to do. (A "Round the Horne" BBC comedy ref.)

        I had a few of those moments myself when I tried to name two of my PC worlds, too: Vorticon VI (The Amazing World of Gumball, first one) and Ryan Genno (Ryan AZWC, potential multiplayer Expert world).

        As it turns out, character limits should be a low priority. In that case, it would be the names you give to your worlds; I'm running out of ideas in that particular field.

      Four and a half pounds of baking chocolate. Maybe it's time to… bake something chocolate? Yeah, I know — a crazy, out-in-left-field idea.

        @Shadow_Mantis : Here's the version I listened to. Easy listening it's not! But rewarding if you absorb the atmosphere and give it time to sink in.

        @aWolfen : Yuppers, kinda like — she was named after the musical piece. Futuristic music (for 1949, and for nowadays IMO), and a futuristic pilot. Good match. And a good catch on your part.

      Freshly baked old-style English bread. Freshly baked southern U.S. chocolate chess pie flavored with Amaretto (almond liqueur). YUM.

        Strudel I've never tried to bake, but I love to eat it. Chocolate chess pie is sort of halfway between custard and fudge. The name's origin is unknown, but could come from an old-fashioned use of "cheese" to mean anything with cheese-like consistency.

        Oh, and it is called "chess." Allrecipes.com has several recipes. It's very easy to make, but very rich and packed with calories. Mine is close to this one, but with three eggs, more evaporated milk, less butter, and a few tablespoons of corn meal to thicken the filling: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/12581/chocolate-chess-pie-ii/

        A four-leaf clover? I figure they bring as much good luck dried as fresh… which is none at all, but they're fun to find! I hope good things happen for you, clover or no.

        It looks that way here in the US too. But remember the words of Martin Luther King (who paraphrased 19th-century Unitarian minister Theodore Parker): "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." Work for good and hope for better times. They WILL come.

        Well, my hope doesn't die, It's just the facts. And US has one of the best situations when it comes to money. Providing that for one USD you get one PLN in Poland, costs are like in USD, which is close to 4 PLN. Which means horribly high prices. Also the politics are on the low level, as well as lots of people here.

      Beat Plantera on the second try. Spider Armor + Terra Blade = wrong approach. Turtle Armor + Megashark + Chlorophyte Bullets = NEXT PHASE.

        I tried Spider Armor + Optic Staff (with TB backup) first. It didn't work out. My Frost and Chlorophyte Armor were back at the base when I decided to take on Plantera. To the rest of the why-nots, I'm not particularly interested in minimaxing. It's a game, not an engineering competition. As long as I win without dying too many times it's progress. Next Plantera will face a tougher me.

        That'd be like saying the Mediterranean sea isn't a part of the Atlantic Ocean

        You can be the ocean without being the sea, but the sea is always the ocean

        Re: Ocean vs. sea: Insults improve nothing. They're adversarial, and all they can do is hurt feelings. Constructive criticism is aimed at improving what's being criticized. It's collaborative. Big diff.
