I have to do this for a finals project at school and I've been wondering about these two questions for a while now, so it's like knocking two birds with one stone. Please vote in this poll and be honest. I have two days before I have to turn these results in. Thanks everyone!

I don't ever send e-mail...and if I do it's just a link to something else or a recipe...I just send it...I really don't think anyone cares about my e-mail...

I mostly send email to myslef, if I find an interesting article when in school or at another computer...

If I want to talk to friends, I usually do that over an instant message.

I don't send e-mail except for E-Cards to my long distance sweetheart, and hackers do not want to hear such racy stuff, it's rated XXXX yeah it's that bad. Everything else is done by Facebook or web cam (only for my GF).

Just a comment but "No, it doesn't matter to me, no one's going to hack me." strongly implies it is your computer/home network that is the problem- between IMAP, webmail/web gateways and even plain old POP3 servers your home computer is one of the last things I would try to hit if I cared about your email (depending on the timeframe).

Anyhow to answer the question anything secure that I will not do in person will be compressed, encrypted outside the email and distributed any number or ways I care to think of- while I rarely have great use for secure communications I always make sure me and mine have such provisions.

E-mail needs to be taken out as a form of communication, it's 80's technology.

Somebody post their e-mail address, and I'll send you a message from yourself.

Until I check the headers and the routing information, at which point your elaborate plan will unravel.

I almost never use email any more. SMS or IM, really, if I'm not signing up for something, and even then I have a separate address. (No, not for here, though. Mostly sites that send me a plethora of ads.)

I personally must use email alot! Being at university, I'm often emailing about random assessments or subject related material! So for me, email is certainly not outdated! I'm not sure I could really cope without it? It'd be so creepy having the phone numbers of academic staff so... yeah. I'm really quite surprised many of you don't use emails? I guess it's not important in terms of what you're doing atm lol.

I'm not sure I like the poll questions though? They don't take into account the nature of the email? For example, I don't care if someone tries to hack into my email about... correct essay formatting. But then I suppose the option

'I don't think much about it, I just do it.'

covers this... I just find the questions a bit iffy, especially if you're basing a project on it?
Lol I apologise if this puts you on a downer. I don't mean to, I'm just giving my opinion.

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    Thanks so much for the feedback!! You are awesome!!
