Yay!

My Inner Hero - Wizard!







There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head.  There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of.  When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.



How about you?  Click here to find your own inner hero.
Who else got what?? ZZaaap!

You should get your results right after you register and log on.
I am...::drumroll::
Wizard.

You're intelligent, educated, and just a bit superior to everyone you know. If you're still in school, you probably make A's, if you're not too bored to waste the effort. EDIT: I would have, but I was too lazy. If you work, your annoying boss relies on you to solve the problems no one else can figure out. EDIT: Indeed, he does, how do they know that? You've never met a puzzle you can't solve. EDIT: Not when I can use a W/T, that's for sure.  When it comes to leisure, you'd rather read, play a strategy game, or surf the 'Net than run around getting sweaty. You're a brainiac, and you're not ashamed to admit it. EDIT: YES!

Above all, you're a mastermind and a great thinker. You see the unknown as territory to be conquered, and the mysterious as something to be systematically unraveled. You don't have time for fools; you only spend your time with people who can comprehend your obfuscatory convolutions. EDIT: Do you comprehend my 'obfuscatory convolutions'? ) You enjoy amassing knowledge, both useful and trivial. EDIT: If only I could remember that knowledge...

Heh, I'm a Wizard too!  I guess these people snuck a peek at my posts on the Tierra boards before activating me.

Heck, I didn't bother with my mission. I just copy&pasted my  'profile' to these boards, and logged out again, never to come back.

The Knight:
So you're a drop out of the school.  You haven't even started yet.        The mission for Paladin is easy.  Fix something.  Big or small.  What is the Wizard's mission?

If I recall correctly, it was to learn something new?

oldbushie:
It was to discover something. So I emailed a math semi-proof to the Head of the Wizards and I'll see if I get a response.

This is my stats and the wizard description:

Rogue (6)
Warrior (6)
Wizard (21)
Paladin (16)

Your Profile:

You're intelligent, educated, and just a bit superior to everyone you know. If you're still in school, you probably make A's, if you're not too bored to waste the effort. If you work, your annoying boss relies on you to solve the problems no one else can figure out. You've never met a puzzle you can't solve. When it comes to leisure, you'd rather read, play a strategy game, or surf the 'Net than run around getting sweaty. You're a brainiac, and you're not ashamed to admit it.

Above all, you're a mastermind and a great thinker. You see the unknown as territory to be conquered, and the mysterious as something to be systematically unraveled. You don't have time for fools; you only spend your time with people who can comprehend your obfuscatory convolutions. You enjoy amassing knowledge, both useful and trivial.

Your Mission:

You were put on this earth to enlighten people. They will listen to you, because they are impressed by your vocabulary, your erudition, and your ability to grasp concepts that invariably elude them. You are the one who has to figure things out, because let's face it - you're the only one smart enough.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to Discover Something. Something small, or something big. Find an unknown insect in your own backyard. Discover a cure for sunburn. Develop a faster way to get the dishes done. Calculate the number of molecules in the Andromeda galaxy. Discover a comet. Discover SOMETHING.

And do make it a priority. The Famous Adventurer of Silmaria has a crystal ball trained on you, and will be noting your progress.

A Warning:

Try to remember: you're not infallible. If people around you are all nodding and smiling, it may just be because they don't have the faintest idea what you're talking about. Check your facts and admit the possibility that even you can make mistakes. Loosen up. Make friends with a Rogue and have him or her try to poke holes in your theories. Who knows; you might actually have fun.

On another note - making plans and formulating theories can be quite stimulating, but at some point, you are going to have to actually DO something. Employ a Warrior, if necessary, to put your brilliant schemes into action. Just be sure your instruction manual is written in very small words.

So you see, I was almost a Paladin.

How true that is, you have no idea.


Quote from: Bunny Commander on October  6, 2003, 04:29:02 PM    Discover SOMETHING.

Heck, I discover new ways to extract information from our accounting program almost every week. However, I don't know if that will pass, since the functions I use have already been discovered, I just use them in a new way.

Nothing to worry about. I'm just a human, and humans make mistakes, even wizardy cat humans.

Alas, that is impossible, I am part of a team, and the colleagues in that team also have to be able to read my 'discoveries'.

Unfortunately, I'm trying to get my Internet explorer to work. I have AOL (or as my friends call it, AO-Hell!) and I can't access my results. Oh, well, I guess the next version of IE can't hurt. :-\

Post by: Jeysie on November 29, 2003, 06:28:49 PM
PA: Well, the problem likely isn't that you're using AOL (although personally I would switch to a new ISP anyway... AT&T Worldnet (http://download.att.net/attcom/) is very nice... <G>), it's that you're using AOL's built-in browser. Try using your Windows installation's version of IE instead. Or better yet, try Mozilla (http://www.mozilla.org/) or Opera (http://www.opera.com/). :D

Peace & Luv, Liz

So, once I've activated my membership, I should get an e-mail with the results, right? Well, I try to login, but it won't let me, saying I have to be a guild memeber to enter the login screen.  :-\

You got the email and activated from within the email? Hmmm... try emailing the webmaster, he should be able to fix it.

Seems to me the membership hasn't been activated yet. Wasn't it necessary to click on a link sent to you by e-mail to activate? Also, I seem to recall it took some time for that activation-mail to arrive.

Post by: Prince Alex on December 05, 2003, 05:42:27 PM
Well, if I try to use the link, it says the membership has already been activated. If I try to login, it says, Thank you for loging in, Dev, then it takes me to the login screen, but it gives me the message, You must be a Guild Member to access this area, and then it sends me the home page. What is up with this?  :(

Are you accepting cookies? I've been in a position where I refused a cookie from a forum I just subscribed to, thus in effect I was logging out everytime I clicked on a link. :( Refusing cookies can send you back to home pages as well, I've been there too (yes, I refuse a lot of cookies).
