Fan Made trailers for the upcomming The Secret World

    There have been several good Fan Trailers for "The Secret World" like:

One by Techie623

This one by Acid Plague (my personal favourite)


and this one from Nyte over at Cry Gaia

    If all this doesn't make much sense to you that is because it was part of an ARG to help promote the upcoming over 18 MMO based on themes from conspiracy theory and ancient mysteries,  secrets and secret societies, and horror and a prediction that the world is coming to an end soon.  All this has been going on behind the scenes in today's modern world, and you as a player have just discovered this world.  To borrow a phrase that I believe Marv Wolfman once wrote about the secret underground world of vampires; "The world you know is just the candy coating on top and the majority of the world lies underneath."  I also think they put it into one of the Blade movies.

    Buy using the ARG they brought many people into "The Secret World".  The game already has player formed guilds, societys, fan sites, and tribute pages.  The ARG forced people from all over the world to work together to solve it, and I think the people who made the ARG were stunned how fast it was solved, inspite of how VERY hard and detailed it was.

    In another posting I will go into how hard it was and what happened in it because it is over and too late for people to participate now.  If I had the resouces it might make a good podcast or short film, using fictional characters to bring people late to the game up to speed. Alas I will have to throw that Idea out to someone else, but if you got the idea from me could you please give me a credit or thank you in the film?

    Until next time...

For those of us using Opera to use MMORPG.COM

I posted the following (sans breaks, sorry I forgot) in the dev blog, and I thought I would put them here in a more readable form
Me: Am I the only one who is getting black text on a dark blue background (totally unreadable) in the field for entering the post for the blog??

Meddle(Dev): wlvnspectre: I left comments in your post, what browser are you using? It's working great for me in IE7.

Me: I am using Opera 9.21. The strange thing is that all the other text boxes work just fine. This one for example is black text on a white background.

Me: just tried it in my alternate browser Firefox 2.X.X and I got the white text on black background with something I didn't know I was missing from both the forum post editor and the blog post editor, the toolbar that is at the top of it.

Now, Opera is fully web standards compliant and they include small tweaks to support many pages that break the standards for IE. For this and other reasons Opera can spoof its browser ID. When I leave the browser ID as Opera, or change it to IE, it doesn't work. However when I change it to Firefox, it works fine. When you change Opera's ID to Firefox all that supposedly changes is the ID.

In the Browser Wars, Microsoft used to make some of its webserving software actually send gibberish or scramble webpages when the the browser IDed itself as Opera. That's why Opera started spoofing. Maybe the person who wrote this editor doesn't like Opera...

According to Valve's recent Hardware Survey the results prove that Microsoft Vista adoption among their users is less than the numbers of users still on dial
up using a 56k Modem.
