Ouch. I'd rather be limping than blind. I guess that if it worst comes to worst, you could always just forget about the frame and tape the actual lenses in front of your eyes... it would look bloody ridiculous but at least it would let you study :p

Believe it or not, I tried exactly that for a while, but I couldn't get the lenses to line up the same way on both eyes, so things looked a bit different out of each eye and it was just making me dizzy. :p

I ended up just buying a new frame. It set me back by $190 and has a few minor issues, but it was the only one that happened to fit my lenses perfectly and I have a month to return it. I know a place near my parents' house where they can fix these things, so I can take the old one there the next time I go over there. At least that solves the immediate problem and I can actually play at the usual time tomorrow.

Neat, tried it and it actually works. I knew the effect on light when it passes through a small hole but I never thought of this application for it.

I tried that but it doesn't do much for me (it works to some extent but not nearly enough to be of any practical use). Maybe my focus without glasses is too poor for it to have much of an effect, as it's something around 20:1200. I guess I make up for it by being highly sensitive to framerates and colors though. :p

We ended up having a great crowd for most of today, something that looked unlikely at first.

Wow I just had the best game ever with HBK... I also got 120+ kills... WOot! Not in 1 game though but in some gauntlets and stuff :) I am so happy

Good to hear. :)

I think it's actually possible to get that in one game in a couple of the missions. Breaking the Seal (the Sathanas one) is one candidate, as I've managed 111 in that. (mostly out of the slow moving Seraphims, so non-hosts can probably do it too)

Good game, Aphil seems to have problems when there are more than 2 players.

I removed the calendar because it's never used, and added Aphil's Hamachi IP thingy.

So, we finally managed to get that Sathanas in Breaking the Seal. Good run this evening :) Of course, we also managed to fail at deliberately failing a mission :p

I guess it's just as well. I took a closer look at the Colossus mission and it apparently does not stay around for more than a minute or so, which wouldn't be nearly enough time to disable it. :p

We did great in Breaking the Seal though. Like many of the other Cetanu missions, it's not all that hard if you have the right strategy going into it. I think that 10% thing with the Tereus that someone mentioned should allow for a comfortable win.
