Reason: no reason, nothing to see here
i have a challenge for you btw. find a post I made years ago in microsteaks nl about huds and include that. its probably so like 2008 or something (I seriously have no idea when I posted it so consider it a treasure hunt)
hint: I had a rather epic how to table select using your hud post in microstakeslimit that did feature in digests. Was one of my finest moments and a thread I was pleased with and the nl version followed months after, I think.....
Solid thread imo, as long as it's updated! If the list gets longer it may even deserve a sticky imo. Pretty sick that my 1k post is there, too. Get ready for my "Dunce Teaches BQ to Play HUSNGS" pooh-bah soon
Bah.. I specifically had your Well bookmarked to include in the thread and I still forgot it
Ahh ... at this point I probably don't agree with everything in my Pooh Bah post (which at the time I really intended to make a lot better than it it ended up being before I ended up giving up on it) and maybe not some stuff in my Well. Those threads were years ago.
In fact I just read some of my Pooh Bah post and I can say now with certainty that I disagree with some of it. Most of the basic ideas seem fine, but there are some specifics in there that I disagree with now and a very few that I find to be kinda bad.
