Secret TAU Control Panel
I'm probably not meant to tell you about this but when you become staff on TAU you get access to a very special page. Today I'm going to show you that page, but only because you asked me nicely. Thanks to old buddy Bill Bantam for creating this and Izzy too for leaving it on his ftp.
A Likely Story
This was just a little conversation in a Zone chatroom after a failed game launch that I found amusing.
Fred: Chapter 2
Fred is back, freshly repatterned and ready for action. This time we hear about his dealings with minefields and Kryptor: the nasty ill tempered ARM super-kbot.
Fred: Chapter I
I've always been a huge fan of these stories. What the lovable, huggable Krogoth lacks in skill and intelligence he makes up for in spirit. I think thats a beautiful message that means even someone with my illiteracy (sp?) can make a website and be a success (sp?).
Compunut's Ambitious Project
He's nearing the completion of his ambitious project sometime this summer so I think this is the perfect time sift through the possible implications of porting TA to Macs... What? Macs already have Total Annihilation? You can play TA on Windows NT? Well I never!
I think these days we're becoming more influenced by consumerism, sex and degredation. What has happened to our spirituality? Oh holy Core masters, who art in Central Consciousness, hallowed be thy mainframe. Say it with me brothers and sisters of the congregation: I BBEEEELLLLIVVVEEE!
Timpie and Igor: Opposing Farce
Now, this stuff is a bit odd so please bear with me here. It's about Timepie the time traveling pastry and his sidekick Igor. It's a messageboard story whereby each person contributes a couple of sentences and theres very little, if any structure to the whole thing. Check out DEW and BLITZ VBB for more info. DEW_Metalikat offers free VBB to all those who ask and changes all the colours and graphics to match your website: I strongly recommend them!
The TA Night Before Christmas
I'm still clearing out alot of the Christmas junk I've collected over the past week. I was on holiday so I missed quite a bit. Now heres an excellent parody by Ktulu that brought a smile to my face.
Heres a little piece I found written by Gecko (?) or at least found in his Annihilated webspace. Those Gnugs need a stern talking too for all the Z's they've ben grabbing over the past few weeks and I'm glad Gecko had the guts to expose their lazy idleness.
Update on the UberCrack Scene
There have been shocking events taking place in the UberCrack community in recent weeks that are going to affect you, the consumer- so you can expect wild fluctuations in the price of crack in the coming weeks until the balance of power has righted itself.
It Was A Regular Night
I found this on an old TA site called Lag Annihilated. It's from an ancient copy of UK PC Gamer - absolutely priceless.
The original ATCC
Should I use my d-gun to weed the garden and how do you get those itty bitty pieces of Peewee from destroying your Goliath tracks? All these questions answered and more in Ask The Core Commander.
Wardruid makes an ass of himself and he isn't even playing Total Annihilation this time.
Theres only one thing unit designers like more than making their units and thats pimping their units =P.
Cultured and sophisticated debate
TAUBB is surely a culturally rich and intellectually stimulating debating forum. Here is another example of our boards finest.
What should our attitudes be towards this growing problem within our community? Should gamers be allowed to continue playing under the influence and typing in chatrooms when plastered?
A letter of complaint
Sadistic Sid writes cool letters :). I especially like the opening.
Uranium235 Maintaining his DRUHg monopoly
This message paid for by the 'Family' of Uraniun235 and his UberCrak turf.

Five is really sorry about the "Zip drive incident". Now, let us never speak of it again.
I felt compelled to bring you these words of wisdom from the TAU Strategy & Tactics section. Read them carefully for such skill and excellence is something we could all learn from.

I decided yesterday that there are too many good
strategies on the TAUBB board and if there was a
crash they'd be lost forever. Want to know how to build
a fast Krogoth or why Dragons Teeth are better than
Berthas? Your in luck because It's all right here!
What does JoeB think about the most popular discussion board
on the net? What are desert Penguins opinions on sex
in Total Annihilation? Does Aslan watch waaay too much Star
The Peewee Rapping Gasta
This one goes out to all the niggaz from Inglewood.. I mean

symphony and drop the beat cos I'm gonna' smote some
AK's tonight -- by Rhadamanthus.
Zone Philosophy- Thats deep, man
Ok- this is the first example of utter stupidity on this
website and there'll be plenty more to come! Can
you walk North to reach the South pole?
I don't know. Who am I to say that North or South
