    @Atmos73 - nope, your terms came before my agreement; which means your violation occurred first. You and I have argued about the concept of time before. You seem to think time goes backwards, and you think it every time you lose something.

    Your sig violated the terms before I agreed to them.

    Regardless, as was already proven... a Moderated declared you the loser. Game over.

    Anyway, it doesn't surprise me that you're a sore loser. Afterall, the reason you've been trolling this forum for 2 years is because you're a sore loser. har har

    I worked it out!!! it's an exceedingly complex joke based on Terry Pratchett.. took me ages, but it all fits!!!!

    Atmos is a Discworld Troll!!! The relevant information is copied here from the Discworld Troll Wiki article:

    One of the more sophisticated aspects of Trollish culture is their traditional view of time. As the past, where we have been, can be 'seen', whereas the future, where we are going, cannot be seen, they logically conclude we are going through time facing backwards. Also, since they are a nocturnal race, the trollish equivalent of the "Dawn of Time" is the "Sunset of Time."

    article is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Discworld)

    totally explains it all :smile:

    Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,
    a plum is a terrible thing to do to a nostril.

    @kzintzi wins the Internet.

    That post is epic, good sir.

    I'm not even joking when I say that I've had to remind Atmos - on more than one occasion - that time actually moves forward, not backward...

    Time moves forward, Atmos, not backwards.

    No Atmos, time moves forward. And when this happens, numbers increase.

    As you said: Discworld Troll

    I anticipate I know the answer to this but any chance of the new Venues App working on an old DK2?

    Heh ouch, I think the biggest point that was missed during this bet, that only moderators can ban :) ...  so it was futile from the start.

    No, you can ban yourself.  You change your icon to a white flag to announce your surrender, you step outside your back door and give yourself a damn good thrashing for being a bad, bad boy, you come back and sign out of the Oculus forums and daren't navigate to forums.oculusvr.com for a month!

    An announcement to the forum that you've been a very naughty boy prior to this would be good too.

    I'm making no judgement on who this should be - i haven't taken too much notice of these shenanigans.  I think they are both being naughty boys and should be forced to shake hands and play nicely.    :D

    The absolute cheek of it!    :D

    What next?  Spitting through my letterbox and asking me to tell you how far you got?

    I think we should have a new forum award:

    "Gobshite of the week"

    I reckon there will be just one or two members who win it every time :p

    Nah, I don't think either Atmos nor myself are being that naughty here. At least not any more or less naughty than when you jump in a thread purely to drop a useless Meme, right?

    He and I are just debating who won a silly bet; a bet that was called out for being over the moment it started.

    Now don't forget that this thread was already set to "sink" by a Moderator. So all these replies are not hitting the top of the forum and bumping the thread. Those of you not involved in the "bet debate" are now intentionally coming in to the discussion like moths to the flame. Even little whiny @Brixmis up there who previously complained that these debates make it to the top of the forum too much can't make any real excuses now; yet here his is seeking out the drama.

    I do agree with you about our ability to "ban ourselves." I'd be happy to follow through with the bet and ban myself for a month if I feel that I lost legitimately. But Atmos' declaration that I lost is based on me talking about a game that I own, enjoy, and gave a lengthy review for, Skyrim. He's also trying to make it seem as if the bet didn't let me talk about one of my favorite non-VR games of all time, Myst, because I advertise the Myst-Mod that I built in my Sig.

    Both of those are absurd enough to warrant the fact that he lost the debate within the first 5 seconds that it began - if we're going to go that far with the silliness.

    When Atmos was declared the loser the moment the bet began, I didn't really hound him for the loss. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and accept that there are some things he can talk about, like his DK2 and Oculus games he owns, like the Climb. I assumed that the same courtesy would extend to me; yet here he is going for the lowest hanging fruit. Hence the silliness.

    And I think the argument over who won/loss the bet is harmless enough in this thread that was "sunk." Where the only real problem is with folks like you and Brixmis going out of your way to chime in with a bit of needless negativity.

    @Zenbane & @Atmos73 - don't either get banned or ban yourselves, the continuous bickering between you, while slightly annoying at times, provides a fun distraction as well as a surprisingly informative view on a multitude of subjects.

    You are both less ascerbic and better mannered than a handful of regular 'troll' posters on a narrowboat forum I'm also known to frequent, and you both make me chuckle :)

    I'll also add that if any of the Mods feel that I did lose the debate then in all sincerity, I'll happily abide by the 1-month self-ban. It was, afterall, Atmos who made the terms that the Mods will decide. We have one Mod who voted that Atmos lost. There's a few Mod's who are free to voice their Vote! They can even PM me if they don't want to say so here.

    I just think it would be a waste since there was something bigger and better happening due to a more sensible approach to the Bet/Agreement. For example, I immediately stopped posting in the Pimax Megathread. I also stopped taking part in any discussion related to HTC and SteamVR statistics. I consider that a good thing.

    On the other hand, Atmos didn't really do the same thing. He keeps arguing in Oculus threads like the "GO Sales" thread, and this thread.

    I don't really care one way or the other. I'm sure many have noticed that up until the last 3 days I haven't really been posting much. And if you look at the screenshot I posted of my VR Library, I haven't played much in VR at all in nearly 1-month.  The last thing I played myself was SkyrimVR, which was over 25 days ago:



    Everything else that shows a recent playthrough (Henry, Beat Saber, First Contact) are titles played by friends/family. I haven't had time to do any VR in a month, and I have less time going in to July.

    Although if anyone checks my Zenbane Steam stats, I have been playing the hell out of Pillars of Eternity! And that's because it is a flat 2D game with a Pause button (old school IceWind Dale, Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights style game).

    That gaming style fits my current schedule.

    Anywho, apologies for the digression.

    I won't answer that - I didn't mention any names and I think it's funny you seem to think I was talking about you. Let's not go into the things you actually could be justifyably called from your behaviour here.

    I'm sure you'll have another smart-arse response. hey - there's one! ;)

    You've made some very recent comments about Atmos and myself:
    "I just think you look like a pair of prats."


    Your "Gobshite" insult wasn't very subtle; and I'm totally down with swinging insults back n' forth, since that's been your MO lately. Like I said before, I gave you a few free passes because you've taken to the forum about your real life inadequacies. I felt sorry for you but if you wanna keep engaging in pure insults then I'm happy to illustrate just how ill-equipped you are for the occasion.
