Really serious of technical issue? (Miscellaneous)

Sorry but I saw most of the discussion not necessary.

Some guys always insist UPX not safe, then you can unpack it, delete UPX from your hard disk and feeling happy.

If you think UIDE/XMGR have problem after packing, don't use it and delete it from your hard disk, why waste time typing long long message for something you know in 5 seconds, just boot it and you know the result.

Well ... I guess those are too lonely and want to start a fight with other, why didn't you just find your neighbor?

When everyone have no UIDE to use, those guys are happy?
It's too simple for a 6 years old child to judge who's bad guys, hope this forum will index in Internet archive forever.

It's much more difficult, not in the last place since your neighbour knows you, unlike here, where they do everything possible to remain anonymous (their top concern!), and so they can do anything here without any responsibility. It's much easier.

I suspect that this was their real goal, although they try to refute me.

Yes, so everybody can judge for themselves who is who. It's so obvious, indeed.

I like this packer, but I have never seen DOS SYS drivers packed with this packer before drivers of Jack... His drivers are small enough (moreover, tiny) even without UPX, which is very actual for "heavy" DJGPP executables or WIN32 PE files.

If I see such a problem, I'll simply assemble non-packed version from ASM sources (MASM 5.10 or Pravetz-16 386 ASM from Lucho).

> When everyone have no UIDE to use, those guys are happy?
I see that you have removed drivers.zip from your site. That's a pity :( - those forum flamewars aren't really important. E.g. MS Windows is often called "must die" or "crap" but Bill Gates releases it year to year...

P.S. I perfectly understand that modern DOS is made of hacks itself, and UPX in SYS file isn't the most dangerous :).

Forums are for discussing.

It was about calmly, rationally discussing whether or not to compress it in the first place, since compression is totally unnecessary for all but a handful of people who could easily compress it themselves, not about starting a fight.

Unfortunately, the thread starter was incapable of calm, rational discussion.

Forum is short for "Discussion Forum." Does this make sense now?

Heh, the latest Dungeon Crawl ("Tiles" version) .EXE for Win32 is over 30 MB (and not UPX'd either, only ZIP'd). :rotfl:

Yeah, very confusing. I mean, I don't see any possibility (or harm, in theory) of anybody associating rr with JRE. But whatever. (Does this mean Lucho and I can't share the drivers on our distros? Granted, Lucho is more of an "ally" than some random guy like me, but still ....)

NANSI is also UPX'd, and Eric gave a similar warning about crashing if not enough room was available. But so far, I've had no issues (just let it load normally from FDCONFIG.SYS). And yes, I must be one of the few who still want to save 1k from their floppy. ;-)

Not a problem, my friend, if you wish to include XMGR and/or UIDE on your
diskettes. If you need a separate, "covering" E-Mail, please contact me
at my personal E-Mail address, and I will reply directly to you.

I regret that, after three direct requests for the "links" to my drivers
to be deleted from this website, nothing was done, and thus the only way
for me to deal with the "situation" was for the files to be deleted from
Johnson's website. This is NO reflection on you, Johnson, nor Lucho.

Greetings, Herr GeneralOberst! Along with Lucho, I was so busy running a
Blitzkrieg against two of your Sturmtroopers that I hadn't noticed you are
back, today!

In fact, Herr G.O., English is a simple language, when it is not burdened
with innuendo, double-meanings, guile, and other complex items.

Re: how you can redefine "leaving", you might try doing this in terms of
"Unlimited DEFENSE whenever NECESSARY", or maybe in terms of "Keepen Zie
Foul MOUTHEN SHUT"!!

I believe those two redefinitions should do what you want rather nicely,
Herr GeneralOberst! Might save Khusraw, Lucho, and me running any more
Blitzkriegs, as well. Do "instruct" your good friends, Herr Oberst and
"Little Stevie" [18-month-olds may not be Obersturmfuehrers!], about all
this, as well!

The problem is that this problem is not his but exactly yours, and you know it but play as you have no problem.

English language

Of course it's simple for you: English is your native language. My first language is Russian and I think English has some hard things,e.g.
1) Difficult sounds in pronounsing (th, ng, qu); complicated spelling
2) It is hard to understand the meaning of "a" and "the"
3) Complicated grammatic of verbs (of course, Russian grammatic is even more difficult).
Of course, Russian language has much more difficulties: unusual alphabet, genders and cases of nouns, absense of fixed order in sentences...

My Problem.

> You're intelligent and know your problem.

Sure do, Herr GeneralOberst, and at the moment, it centers on 3 members of
this forum. They seem to believe they can mercilessly ATTACK me and some
of my friends, just because we reserve the right to DEFEND ourselves when-
ever so attacked. They simply REFUSE to understand the word DEFENSE, and
it sometimes becomes necessary to BLITZKRIEG them, in return, which we all
know how to do quite well, since our ages, mentality, and general "common
sense" about BATTLE TACTICS makes our 3 sorry-assed opponents look like 3
rank beginners!

Battles are sometimes necessary, Herr GeneralOberst, as I thought a man of
your rank would understand. When won, the victors are usually quiet about
it and leave, subject to the following definitions for "leave", which you
asked me about in your last posting:

> Re: how you can redefine "leaving", you might try doing this in terms of
> "Unlimited DEFENSE whenever NECESSARY", or maybe in terms of "Keepen Zie

When battles are lost, the losers can be made to look like 18-month-olds,
like total DISGRACES to their countries, or sometimes they even become a
Burgermeister.

Yes sir, Herr GeneralOberst, that is my problem: Having to run BLITZKRIEGS
on sorry-assed foul MOUTHS that simply do NOT know when to QUIT!!!

Why don't you let Jack talk for himself. Does he need a Mommy?

And don't tell me that you're defending Jack. First, you are a miserable defender. And second, my post was no attack, just a neutral statement. You're just insulting Jack's intelligence by trying to persuade him that he's no problem. After all, there are quite some famous and honorable persons in history having been paranoid, one of them Alexander the Great. So please continue in your process of leaving and don't talk to me!

This is called "twisted tongue" in English, as far as I know. I sometimes wonder who is a bigger hypocrite - the unnamed one who named himself a coward, or you?

gold flintlock guns on the collar.

His name is Khusraw, Herr Burgermeister -- Perhaps you should join "Little
Stevie" in my spelling class for pre-schoolers. Actually, both Lucho and
Khusraw have a rather sardonic sense of humor, same as mine, and I learn
from them, not just technically but personally, too! As for my opponents,
they might more-likely get DEFEATED, if today is any indication!

Forked Tongue.

To the best of my knowledge, American English, and perhaps all others, does
not have the expression "twisted tongue". But, thanks to Native American
tribes, we do have the expression "speaking with a forked tongue", meaning
the split tongue of a snake. The expression means "lying".

the closest common expression is "tongue twister", a long word or sentence that is difficult to pronounce.
