Text and anti-text

Text and anti-text

Heee….Yay, welcome to my blog, salmon. 🙂 And yes, we should have a raging debate about text and GUI. Somehow I managed to get painted as the anti-text girl and I’m not sure how that happened. (Jason?) Miao pointed out that there must be a point where a MOO stops being a MOO…where is that point? I don’t think this is necessarily due to incorporating graphics or sound or whatever..but it comes down to not just why it’s used but how. At the moment I personally find the GUI bulky, the text window not as flexible (my copy and paste options don’t work from the pull down menu, and I keep crashing my computer trying to remember how to hot key them), I want a different font, a bigger font, a different background colour, and a bigger buffer too. That would be nice. We’ve spent a lot of time making the graphics and sound better, but our GUI doesn’t do what most regular MOO clients do naturally on the text side. Of course I’d like to be able to control the size of the window as well. What if we could minimize the graphics window? That may not be entirely useful for all, but I would apprieciate it. 🙂 I know salmon’s done some great work on juicing up text….some of the many things I want to work on include incorporating her moo progging into my project. I guess I should DO it for a change instead of just yakking about it. 🙂
