Aeon PW
All



It has been a good run with Aeon, but all things run their course and come to an end. I have watched Aeon slowly grow then die off as people moved onto other interests or found worlds that appeal to them more. Instead of leaving the server up and running empty, I have decided to turn off the server and close the player portion of the forums.



I would like to thank those that have put in their time and effort, either as DM's, builders or players. Without your efforts a world can not exist or grow into something more than a concept.



So what next, for me I am not sure, perhaps I shall learn something else perhaps not. I do know my power bill will be smaller next month, so out of sad endings a positive comes.



Goodbye and Goodluck.

Me much english goodly.

Result

Question 31 is a bit strange, though. Both words are appropriate, so c should be the correct answer - a is just a more specific answer, not a more correct answer. (Although I answered b >.<)

Stationary/Stationery got me. I knew the correct definition for stationary, but for some reason stationery didnt feel right for the question. The other one that got me was me/I. Learned something new there.

Damn, I scored lower than everyone else...

Answer Key (only for those who have done the test Razz). A is the only right answer for 31. I fell for that one as well.

I still think it should be c. The answer key gives the definition for "hung" as "v. past tense of hang; to fasten from above with no support from below". That is appropriate for what happens in the execution, its just less specific.

Does that mean you usually drink before visiting forums lol?

Noone is telling which ones they missed. I want to see if they're the same as mine. Razz

And Spor I think you can spell. I just think you type too fast and don't proofread your posts before clicking the send button hehe.

I don't see spelling or letter order when I proof read stuff. I can reread something a fair few times and not see an error. Still I am a genius and the proof is on the web.

I drink whenever I don't have to work or drive somewhere. I've normally had a few before I play any game/visit forums unless I'm at work.
