    • "How to" for Cockbite Fight Nights

      in Forums > "How to" for Cockbite Fight Nights | Follow this topic


      This is to let people know what Cockbite Fight nights are and how it's run and how to be involved. 

      So how will it work?

      Cockbite Fight nights will be streamed on the Twitch channel of the group. Well have a game or two organised to play for the night and active players will be chosen at random from the RTCG members who are present. As people come in, we'll ask that you let us know if you want to be a player or just a viewer. If you don't have the game we're playing that particular night, you can still come along and chat to everyone. 

      How can be a player?

      Priority will be given to RTCG members. If you're not a member of the group, you can still have a chance at being a player though. We'll be asking everyone if they want to be a player or a spectator. If you change your mind, send a message to the host and/or user TreAnomaly to get your status changed. We'll ask that you not nominate to be a player if you don't have the game of the night and are unable to play. 

      How to conduct yourself on the night?

      We hope that everyone will respect each other. Any harassment of others or discriminating language will not be tolerated. Also, although we are all fans of Rooster Teeth, this is purely an independent group and in no way does the opinions expressed at the Cockbite Fight Nights relate or reflect the opinion of Rooster Teeth. 

      If you have any further questions, feel free to ask below or ask me a question on my profile page

    • Group logo and art

      in Forums > Group logo and art | Follow this topic


      So I'm not exactly a great artist. I'm not even close to someone who can draw something decent. If you're one of those people that can draw and have some good ideas for a good logo for the group or just some cool art, you can post it here and we can use it on the group page or during the Cockbite Fight Night streams. 

      As an example, here is a sorry excuse for a drawing I made for a Cockbite Fight Night logo:


      Yep, I'm that bad.

      A new group has been created for the gamers of the community. I've made this as a hub for gamers to find other people to play online with and talk about all the games they enjoy. Also, if people want to post reviews and news on games new and old to share with members of the community. 

      We'll also be holding online game nights where we can not only watch people play games but give members of the community a chance to show their skills as part of the action. Details will be posted on the RTCG group page for what we'll be calling Cockbite Fight Nights. So keep an eye out for details on that in the coming days. 

      Head over to the group page, join up and introduce yourself.

    • Lost my smile of pure joy

      4 weeks ago


      Growing up I had a few pets. I went through a few goldfish and we had a few birds come and go. I've always liked animals, even the blue tongue lizard that used to live under the stairs out the front of our house. I always wanted a dog though. I'd visit relatives or friends and the first thing I'd do is go say hi to their dog. I'd be at the park near home and people would walk their dogs and I'd go up and pet them. Even the ones that would nip at my feet. I would annoy my mother for us to get a dog but she would just say no, until the day she said we were going to see a breeder to pick up a Jack Russell puppy. Mind you by this stage, I was 20 and about to move out of the house, so it wasn't exactly for me. It was more of something to keep my mother company now her two children were moving out. Still though, I wanted to come and just see the puppies. We were looking at the litter and my mother was talking to the breeder. I was just playing with the dogs. I was holding a boy, actually I was holding 3 but one boy I thought we should get, but my mother was holding a little girl puppy and we decided to get her. I held her while we drove home (my aunt was with us and I think she wanted a turn at holding her also but I wouldn't give her up) and although she was my mothers, she was really mine. We called her Annie. 

      The nights were hard for the first week or so. She would cry and whimper because she was used to having her family around and now she had a couple of strange people. It wasn't hard in an annoying sense, more hard in that I didn't want her to feel that way and wanted her to be comfortable. We had a bed for her in the laundry so I'd lay in there on the cold tiles with her until she'd fall asleep, but she'd wake up during the night and cry so either my mother or I would bring her into one of our rooms. She eventually got comfortable though and would sleep through the night. She was tiny and each morning I'd wake up and she would be sitting beside my bed waiting for me to get up. Then she'd follow me down the hallway and I'd go down the stairs but she wouldn't be following me anymore. I'd look back at the stairs and she'd be at the top of the stairs looking at me like I'd just abandoned her because she was too small to get down the stairs. So I'd go back and lift her down the couple of stairs and we'd both keep walking to the kitchen. There were a couple of stairs up to the kitchen so again, she'd be looking at me with a "why are you leaving me?" look and I'd lift her up the stairs and we'd both have breakfast. This would happen everyday and she'd grow and look at the stairs and try to work up the courage to give it a try but then she wasn't ready so I would lift her down and up the kitchen stairs. Then the day came when she made it down one stair and she looked at me wagging her tail, but wanted me to lift her down the next stairs. Eventually though, she conquered the stairs both up and down. The next challenge was jumping on my bed. First she'd get tall enough to put her front paws up on the side of the mattress. So instead of waiting me to wake up, she'd kick the mattress to wake me up. That's when things started to happen in her time rather than mine. Then eventually she could jump up on the bed, so she'd lay on my chest looking at my face and shove her nose in my face as soon as I started opening my eyes. No snooze button on that alarm clock.


      I'd teach her things and let her get away with a lot but I would also keep her under control. She would be bad and would think she was the leader but I would keep her in check. She'd be bad and try to eat her food under my bed and snap at me when I'd try to grab her food to get her back to her bowl. She knew to not bite hard though and if she thought she was too hard, she'd snap out of defensive mode and lick my hand to apologise. She'd bark at big dogs because she knew I'd always protect her, but if they barked back, she hide behind me. So I'd pick her up to take her away and she'd start barking at the dog again. Like she didn't have to worry because I was holding her. So I'd put her down on the ground again and she'd stop barking and try to get me to hold her again and look at me like she was thinking "No, what are you doing? That dog will kill me. Protect me again". Annie was a little dog that thought she was invincible. But she wouldn't abuse it. She knew I wouldn't let anything happen to her but she also knew that she couldn't push it. She liked people and liked other dogs if they were relaxed dogs and didn't get too close to me. 


      I've never really liked or wanted children. I don't hate kids, I just don't want any. I don't know what to do with them or how to interact with them. I like people that I can talk to and they respond in ways that I understand. And that is how I would talk to children of all ages. I would talk to it like I would talk to anyone else and get jibberish back and not know what to do. Also they stare at me and they're not mine for me to tell them to stop and go away. They're not doing anything wrong but who sits directly opposite some strange guy on the train and just stares at the guy? That said, Annie is the closest thing I would consider to be my child. I realised I loved her, taught things to her, protected her in ways that parents would liken that to how they raised their child. The difference to me is, Annie was more loyal, we understood each other and she was consistent. Children grow and change and would probably think I'm lame or what I'm doing is not for their benefit but to not let them have fun or whatever. And if it was my child, it would be an absolute bastard in a multitude of layers. Annie however, was just a consistently pure joy for me. It didn't matter how I felt or how bad a day I had. I would just go visit Annie at my mothers place and I'd feel happy again. It was like she would know when I was feeling down also. She'd just come up and curl up next to me and just look at me like she was asking if I was ok.

      I could tell hundreds of stories about my Annie. Little stories like her sitting at the window with her head around the curtains waiting for me to get home. Or how she would lay on my pillow when I'd get up during the night to go to the bathroom and not move when I came back. How her ears were silky soft and when she was young, she looked like she had black eyeliner. However, like so many other things that have brought me joy, it had to end. July 1st, 2014 I stopped smiling. We had to put her down because she had tumors throughout her body and unfortunately I couldn't protect her from those. Since then, I don't think I've smiled out of pure happiness. Sure I've smiled, but it's a smile like when you hear a funny joke or you're doing something fun. I haven't smiled simply because I'm happy. I'm just sitting on the couch, watching tv and Annie is curled up on the couch with me. Just happy.......


    • Need to work out more. Thanks Geoff

      1 month ago


      I had a great time at RTX though the first day was a little bit more than I "detected". I managed to get into the RT store on Sunday, which wasn't the best time if you want something specific as it was pretty bare by that point. I managed to pick up this Funhaus shirt which I wanted:


      It's a good fit and it's a comfortable shirt.

      I also picked up this Geoff designed shirt:


      which is small on me. Very small and tight. Same size, both medium but this one is tiny. 

      Now I originally thought "great, I need to workout more and lose more weight you fat arse" but then I suspect I picked up a womens shirt. I thought that section was all male sizes as there was a womens section. I could have just picked up one womens sized shirt that was swapped out on the table. Either way though, I have a shirt that I shouldn't wear but might wear it to bed and a desire to continue to lose more weight and get fitter. 

      Maybe next year, I'll be able to fit in the womens sizes also.   smirk

    • 90's OCC intro video

      in Forums > 90's OCC intro video | Follow this topic


      If you'll indulge me, I've created this thread for a project I want to create. If the OCC are willing, I want to make a video where the members of the OCC introduced in the style of a 90's sitcom, like this for example (Thank you @Priest).

      If willing, I just want a short clip of you in the style of the video aforementioned. As in a "Oh hey, I was in the middle of this but now I'll acknowledge you" type of old sitcom intro. Once done, I'll get everyone to either email me a link to where I can download their clip or advise me how I can get the clip. Then I'll edit it all together and make a fun intro video for the OCC group. 

      Use this thread to co-ordinate situations if you like or discuss ideas.

    • Do what you enjoy and do it early

      1 month ago


      I was talking to someone at work today and they asked me what education path I took to get where I am today. I thought about it and the real reason I am in IT support now is because I was doing an IT degree at University and manager at my part time job asked me if I wanted to help the IT Administrator out. That opportunity is the main reason I have been able to get other support roles. That entry in my resume more than the Bachelor of IT I got from University. 3 years of study and thousands of dollars of debt have amounted to a career doing something I taught myself while at home playing around with my computer and learnt on that first job. 

      Now I'm not saying higher education is pointless, it's clearly not as it's the reason we have the lives we live today, with all the things that surround us and keep us alive, entertained and productive. The main issue I've found is getting a job once I had graduated. I left it late and didn't start uni until I was 31. I completed a Bachelor of IT at Griffith University on the Gold Coast where I did a double major in software development and system services, which is just fundamentals of networking and security, and got a gpa of 6.25 out of 7, which is an 89% average. My goal was to be above 6 so I achieved that which I was proud of. One thing about me is I don't celebrate things unless they are achievements gained through hard work and effort. I don't care that you're still alive after a year but I'll congratulate the shit out of you for graduating or winning in sport etc. I did alright at university and my grades are above the credit average (5/7) that employers advertise on their graduate roles. I've also had experience working for the last 15 odd years, so I know what it's like to work with people and how businesses function. That has not amounted to a job in software engineering or development though. Why? Well there are a few factors.

      There are hundreds of graduates each year across the country and they're all applying for jobs. There aren't a huge number of software companies in Australia so they can pick the cream of the crop, the best of the best. They have free reign to peruse the candidates and be as picky as they like when looking for that one in 500. There's also changes in the company that can mean that a company can no longer hire a graduate. I had that happen at a couple of jobs. I had an interview lined up and they cancelled because they cancelled the graduate program and weren't taking anyone that year. There's also my age, which is what I think is a significant part of why I haven't been successful in some instances. That's why I'm writing this piece. 

      Many companies hire graduates so they can groom them. They want to take a bright mind that's fresh and open that they can mould to their needs. In the case of software, they want someone that they can teach them how to work the way they work and create software the same way that everyone else in the company creates it so everyone can seamless work together to maximise efficiency and make debugging and coding easier. It's basically take a piece of metal and mould it into a cog so that it can replace another cog that's getting worked to fit in another spot. This is purely an assumption but I don't think companies, here at least, want an older person to take up that role. I think they want someone young so they can get as much of a career out of that person as possible. They want someone early 20's so they can get 40 odd years out of them rather than someone older that has baggage of "how we did it at this place" with them. And that's fine, I get it. They have the opportunity to pick from hundreds of candidates at each job. Why wouldn't you find the best you can. 

      So what am I saying? What's the point to this? I guess it's just to think about what you want to do early on and don't leave it until later. Sure there are plenty of people that have been able to get jobs after graduating that are my age or older. This is just a bit of advice from me. I can't change it now, but there's plenty of young people who are not really thinking about it. My advice is think about it as soon as you can. What do you want to do? Who do you want to be? The sooner you work it out, the sooner you can start working towards that goal and increase your chances of achieving it. The world is full of opportunities right now. It's prime for people to be who they want to be with so many jobs around, it's easier to go to other countries so you can now look globally. There's start up companies and kickstarter programs for people to get the money to start up their own company. Social media and the internet in general is making it easier and faster to meet people and network. Now is the time to discover what you want to do with your life. And if I can make a suggestion, make it something beneficial to humanity. Do something for the greater good of this planet and all that inhabit it. The world is open for you but it's not yours, it's for everyone. Just think about where you want to end up and work towards it now. I promise good times will still be had during that time also.
