No. jawaone, jawatwo, and jawathree were great solid chaps all building on bits from the one before, making changes but still had the charm of the original. They were a solid original trilogy.
jawafour is where it all went wrong

The part 4 of any trilogy is always shitty.

That works for most trilogies but Jawa is the exception.

For Jawa's: 1 >>>>> 3 >>>> 2 >>>>>>>>>> 5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>4

[Wanders into the thread]

:o . Blimey!

To be fair, I think people liked jawaone and jawatwo but they became a bit bored by the time that jawathree rolled around. They'd seen it all before and, well, he just didn't do anything differently. jawafive is pretty cool because he doesn't sit on the fence and take the middle ground; he's way more fun than jawafour. 'five isn't real, though... but maybe that's the point. Sometimes fantasy is better than the reality. jawafour just doesn't cut it when it comes to being in GRcadian fantasies so, yeah, we probably should ban him.

Be careful. Jawafive was awesome, a top top bloke.

It's Jawafour that is evil. Don't tar all Jawa's with the Jawafour filth.


This, JawaFour is a dick, JawaFive is a true king amongst men! #JawaFiveForMod

:lol: . I still don't know who created that jawafive character. It's amazing to think that he exists as someone's alt!

I hear Ad5 liked the sound of people eating crisps.

The scientists deemed it a flaw and incinerated him.

There was a fly strawberry floating about on my screen so I brushed it off and got on with my day. Mother strawberry floater is now inside of the screen beneath the protective layer but over the LCD.

What a twat.

Or to put it more succinctly "A fly outsmarted you"

The fly dies in this screen tonight, hungry and alone.

I drive home in my fast car and do a sex and then wake up alive tomorrow morning.




.. only to see the dead fly trapped in my screen for the rest of time

Ah the old fly in the LCD screen. It's a specific type of fly that appears in summer attracted to light and is small enough to get inside the cracks of the bezel and then strawberry floating through the dust seals and in between the protective layer and the actual LCD matrix. Sometimes they get between the LED panel (backlight) and the LCD matrix so it looks like it's actually inside the Internet. God invented this creature to punish IT people.

The funnest part is if you accidentally try to remove the speck of "dirt", it gets squished, and it's there forever.

Happened to me on a brand new set of twin IPS displays and drove me nuts. Especially since I was the one that purchased them.

I have never experienced the "Fly in LCD Screen" problem, sounds like a right pain though.

Current annoyance - web pages that jump the strawberry float around as images are loading! I have fairly shitty internet at home so any decent web page with images on will still take a while to load up - so when I'm happily going ahead reading the text it keeps jumping down as each of the images slowly plops in, strawberry floating driving me nuts! Seriously can we not agree on a system whereby the size and location of everything is predefined so that this gooseberry fool doesn't happen? Just put a placeholder square or something where the image should be until it loads!

Got one of these babies at home. Fries 'em. :nod:

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.
