comment I died in Nethack to Food Poisoning, despite having Poison Resistance
@Anon. Its caused by the toxin that the microbes produce while they eat the food. Its definitely poison, hence the name! Just its unexpected poison from bacterial toxin production rather than toxins naturally occurring in the food. This means you could kill someone with Poison Resistance by adding bacterial toxins to their food, as then it would count as food poisoning rather than normal poising! (Net hack is wrong)

comment Is the name of the Uplink corporation administrator discoverable?
Hmm interesting. I've never tried to trace the payments get into my account to rob my employers. I think it might just come from the ether rather than a real account.

If you look at the save game file, you can see the accounts at the banks. Its a long time since I looked though. I assume nothing has changed in any recent patches!

comment Is there ever a reason to have multiple bank accounts?
@Zommuter Ah, I was pretty sure I had used it to get multiple loans before. This was several years ago though. I'll have to recheck!

Multiple bank accounts also allows you to have multiple loans. This can be useful if you are just short of buying something you need for your next mission.

comment How do I make money quickly in Uplink?
Just to point out that its much easier if you open a bank account at the target bank first. That way you can edit the logs of both accounts without needing to bypass Uplink Bank's security.

comment Is Revelation a good substitute for a self-destruct device?
Yes, Revelation v.1 and self destruct are functionally equivalent. This is very useful with the computer with only one security slot!

comment Why isn't my detector rail igniting my TNT?
For some reason this question makes me think of Wyle E Cyote asking for help before returning to the lit TNT...

comment Is it considered a loss if you logout or close the game during the countdown?
@Fadeway in a logical sense "Do you want an apple or an orange", "Yes" is a perfectly valid response. People who do too much computer programming would even suggest the correct response!

comment Steam ports blocked
You run a VPN program, it tunnels your entire connection through to another machine. Once you are running the VPN client, as far as your machine is concerned you are directly connected to the internet via the target machine, as if you were plugged into it by ethernet cable. As far as your local sysadmins are concerned, you are just running an SSH tunnel. Its functionally equivalent to doing the ssh -LPORT:dest:port thing then connecting individual programs to local host, but does all your traffic and easier to configure.

Troll creep tumour blocking an enemy Z from making a hatch is priceless.

comment What is the optimal number of creep tumors per creep route?
Even without overlord speed an overlord can keep up with the speed of creep tumour spread!

comment What is the optimal number of creep tumors per creep route?
@Nick122 Terran will often scan to kill creep in a creep-attack before attacking the zerg base. More tumours means some might survive before the scan runs out, which means they need to scan again etc.

comment What is the optimal number of creep tumors per creep route?
Creep won't spread any faster with 5 tumours than 1 with the overlord, since you can always move the tumour as soon as the CD is up. With only 1 tumour you will be ~30s behind on creep extent around the tumours, but the spread of tumours themselves is the same.

comment How do you stay alive with Heimerdinger?
Its normal to rush level 3 turrets, and then up to you if you want to get 5 quickly or not.
