Back in 2007 I put together a Microsoft Windows keyboard layout for the Shavian alphabet. Unfortunately moments after published it on this site, I noticed a big problem with the encoding. So I took the download down until such a time as I could get around to rebuilding it. Five years later, it’s done! Yeah, I’m kinda busy, so if you’ve been waiting then I’m really sorry that it took so long.
The Shavian alphabet is alternative alphabet for the English language which attempts to provide simple phonetic spelling of words. It was funded by George Bernard Shaw, giving rise to it occasionally being called the Shaw alphabet. As of April 2003, Shavian was added to the Unicode Standard at block U+10450–U+1047F in Plane 1 (Supplementary Multilingual).
Shavian is an alphabet that is intended to be used as an alternative to our existing Latin alphabet. There are many reasons why it is both bad and good, ignoring all those it’s fun. Needless to say, I kinda like it.
So, seeing how the below text is floating around almost every european planetside forum I thought it wouldn’t hurt if I added it here. Lets hope this action gets noticed by Sony.
On behalf of Kosh:
How do you feel about cheating in an online game? I’m talking about using third party software to alter the outcome of what would otherwise be a fair fight. If you’re like most of us you despise it. It eats away at a community from the ground up and if nothing is done about it the amount of cheaters tends to grow to the point that there’s simply no room left for gamers who play by the rules. This type of cheating can really ruin a great game and frustrate a lot of people. This is the current situation with Planetside.
Installation From a Stage 3 Tarball
This only covers getting the system up-and-running as quickly as possible, from an already built stage 3 tarball (Stargate was done like this, for speeds sake – with more time, I would have done it from a Stage 1 again).
For most, this is fine, but for those who want the full lowdown on going from a Stage 1 (as I did with Chevron) , go to
