All three words, "Loading", "Ready", and "Run" have multiple meanings.

Loading - n. ~ a weight placed on something, a filler substance, etc.
Loading - v. ~ loading a program, loading a box, etc.
Ready - v. ~ to make ready
Ready - adj. ~ ready to be used
Run - v. ~ to stride, physically run with your legs
Run - v. ~ to activate, as in run a program
Run - n. ~ a run to the store, setting out at a run, a bombing run, etc

I would say Loading the program, Ready to be used, Run as in Activate.
It's from that strange machine called the 64th Commodore, I believe.

Well, OBVIOUSLY, I'm just saying most online translations won't let you specify.

Avatars are back. While he can be vengeful if provoked, the Admin is a merciful deity. Feel free to change them to whatever you want as long as it is not a Crew picture.

You were apparently awake enough to challenge everyone to a nerf duel.

In any case, I just wanted to change it to something less annoying and that picture amused me. Feel free to change it to whatever you want (as long as it is not a Crew picture).

I went to a JRR Tolkein festival and got to try on some old medieval clothes, which was awesome, the hat was amazing and it felt like I was in Final Fantasy or something. I even got to hold a sword. Yay!

This is just me being picky, so if you don't wanna read me being picky, go find a thread about penguins somewhere, or something. *grins*

I think we need a new word for modern day "swords". Actual swords don't exist any more, except as heirlooms and archeological artifacts, or the occasional old family of Japanese swordsmiths and whatnot. Modern "swords" are just replicas. They're not even remotely the same things, except that they're shaped similarly and are made of metals.

The sheer craftsmanship of an actual sword is far and away above any replica. Replicas aren't intended for combat, so all you need to do is make them resemble a sword shape, without actually having any of the qualities of an actual sword.

Anywho, if you want to learn about real swords, craftsmanship, combat, etc, visit your local library.

/rant off

It was shiny, sharp and it looked cool. It was all in the name of fun and celebration.

I'll call a banana instead, shall I? :D

Heh. Not picking on you particularly. And saying you went around weilding a banana at a Tolkien fair may raise some eyebrows.

Call it what you will, of course. I call them replicas, or replica swords to specify. But then, I am of course just a picky muck-a-muck.

I'm calling it my Shiny Combat Spatula. Just because it sounds better than banana. I don't like banana anyway.

Try crafting a LARP sword. The mix of materials required and the sheer patience trying to shape it is extreme.
Hence why im not even going to try for a while.
The fact it has to be durable, lightweight and everything a sword is (bar sharp of course) yet be safe, lets face it, being safe to use isnt high on a swordmakers list of requirements, is pretty dam hard and costly in time+money


but their bloody awsome, only weapon you could actually beat someone with without being arrested.
