There are tons of different "bean" images for all of the various stages you get. Someone would have to photoshop 20 or so unique images, ubuntu-geek would have to replace those all on the server, and then be able to get the old ones back after Halloween. For the staff, they only had to GIMP two images, which is a lot easier to keep track of.

That said, I demand custom Halloween themed beans.

There are tons of different "bean" images for all of the various stages you get. Someone would have to photoshop 20 or so unique images, ubuntu-geek would have to replace those all on the server, and then be able to get the old ones back after Halloween. For the staff, they only had to GIMP two images, which is a lot easier to keep track of.

That said, I demand custom Halloween themed beans.

Ok I think 2 hours should be enough for you to get them done. :p

You can use anything to kill people. With a shield, smash their face in, or get them on the ground and break their neck with the edge of the shield. Throw it at them like a frisbee to decapitate them or at least knock them off a horse. You have to be innovative on a battlefield.

The shield is a very powerful weapon. In Roman times, the shield was often used as a weapon and was by design quite effective. There are accounts of people using their shield over their gladius for combat.
