They wouldn’t be all that near them either, but I figure you would you know. Shoot them with your shotgun if they get within range. You shouldn’t be camping near your buildings constantly in the first place, lest you want to give a spy a free backstab.

Fuuuh.

I’m sorry, I really don’t want to make you upset, but leaving my buildings gets me killed 100% of the time

And spies can’t backstab me if I’m positioned against a wall.

First, shotgun can be deadly up close, and you carry whopping 200+ ammo for your pistol (if you don’t use a Wrangler). So even if you can’t kill, you can weaken/finish off an enemy and thus help your sentry gun deal with them. Yes, leaving the protection of your buildings is dangerous, but you might be able to slow down enemy advance - or even catch them in crossfire with your sentry.

Second, turtling (sitting between dispenser and sentry) won’t help against spies - if you’re standing next to a dispenser with your back towards the wall, they can jump onto dispenser, onto your head, and backstab you from there (or at least they used to be able to). So keep moving and looking around, fire at anyone who gets close. No spy can stab from invisibility, so you should be able to see them coming. Measure your distance - if you’re harassed by a Red Tape spy, better stick closer.

And if you’re having trouble with explosive charges of Soldiers/Demomen, go to a trade server and buy a Short Circuit. Normal price for any regular weapon is a scrap (or 2 other regular weapons).

Semi-official sources say that using bitcoin might lead to criminal responsibility (as in, going to jail). Not sure if it’s true, but if it is, it will mean that attempts to build a truly totalitarian (all-controlling) state have been taken on a whole new fucking level.

Microsoft is in advanced talks to acquire the maker of the game Minecraft for more than $2 billion, people briefed on the discussions said on Tuesday. The move was intended to ensure that one of the most popular games was available for the computing giant’s family of devices.

The sides still need to work out many details, and a deal could fall through, according to one of these people, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Acquiring Minecraft would give Microsoft control of an online world that has defied many of the conventions of the modern games business to become a blockbuster success.

this isn’t good… =\

nope, and its probably gonna happen too, so just get prepared now. dont QQ when it happens, get all the QQs out right now

I’m gonna QQ when they DO fuck the game up. Until then it’s too early.

I also didn’t pay for my copy of OpenOffice.

I think Patch has reached a new level of Badass here. She sure wanted to be a pirate since she was just a Baby dragon.
Patch now has a Deviantart Page. It’s a work in progress but you can use it to follow her, fan artwork and stuff too.
 
Unluckily you can’t pirate New hardware. Wouldn’t that be absolutely awesome? I would certainly download myself a new computer every 5 months.
Let’s also welcome sphagnum back who has been sick lately and couldn’t enlighten us with her awesome art!

Patch what you want ‘cause a pirate is free!
You are a pirate!
YARRR!
