What do you want from Meebo?

Add Comment! By John Graham on June 23rd, 2010

As I mentioned earlier, I spent the past week with Anton in LA attending E3 and hanging out with other indie developers. Unfortunately, with all the commotion that was going on you might have noticed that I neglected some of my Wolfire Live Chat duties. However, it's been long enough (especially considering all the visitors from the Humble Indie Bundle) that another decent wave of crazy Meebo conversations has accumulated. As usual I have weeded out all the productive customer service conversations and humbly submit to you another smattering of subversive silliness.

Populus: It seems the popularity of your Meebo posts is declining.
Populus: This is not good.
Populus: It seems you will need more comedians arriving to give the fans a hell of a time with brilliant humor and/or ridicolous comments about your beard.
Populus: Over the next few days, multiple meeboguests of particular talent will arrive, and be humurous until you crack.
Populus: Be prepared.
Populus: Over and out.
Populus: You have had your only warning.

Mike: Well, I built a highly advanced quantum computer system into my rolls, but whenever I try to run lugaru while driving it says "Park first.". Any ideas?
wolfirejohn: haha
wolfirejohn: I would recommend not playing Lugaru while driving
Mike: What? Why not?
Mike: If I can talk to you while driving, I can play lugaru whlie driving.

Batman: John. Make Overgrowth have bats.
Batman: They are mammals and therefore anthropomorphs in the Lugaru-Overgrowth universe.
