      Counter-strike (and CS:Source) are very, very popular games... personally, I think there need to be some CS maps remade in Halo 3.
      Bungie searches have yielded a couple of de_dust remakes, but nothing much.
      What maps would you like to see in Halo 3? (To aid your memory, I'll create some polls for the best in each category) Which Halo 3 maps would you use for them?
      (I've already tried to make de_dust2 in Sandbox and I can tell you it's too small)

      You know, I'd forgotten that a colleague convinced me to sign up on MySpace way back before it was famous.

      I never did anything apart from download his band's music from their page and I wasn't all that enamoured with the site... then, over the following years, it achieved infamy and I generally thought, "yeah, I've yet to hear anything good about it, apart from Michael's declaration that I should sign up." The only other praise for it I ever heard was "it rulz yoo man" or other pure-opinion drivel.
      When Facebook was introducing features that didn't impress me, I was interested to find a group entitled "A plea to Facebook: Don't become MySpace," which was a direct response to those changes.
      So, understandably, my account went unused for literally years. Like, most of the site's lifetime so far.
      This morning or overnight (can't remember/don't care) I received an e-mail from them, informing me that I had a friend request. Didn't recognise the name, but the memory of my account came flooding back.
      After recovering my password (wow, I used the gate system designation for Earth, never used that anywhere else) I responded to the RFR (I probably could have been nicer) and dug up the link to close the account. They presented me with a brief list of options for why I'm closing the account and, when I clicked "bored with it" or "some other reason," a pop-up box materialised, informing me of the best ways to use social networking sites.
      So, once I settled on "bored with it" and clicked the Cancel Account button, I was taken to another page that had some other dren at the top about ways to use the site or something and a text box to type in some comments about why I was leaving.
      I was extremely concise and candid in that. Then I clicked the Cancel Account button. The next page informed me that I would shortly receive an e-mail detailing the next step for cancelling the account. By this point, I was somewhat bored with the cancellation process.
      The e-mail was waiting for me when I switched back to that tab. The next step was to click the "I want to cancel my account" link in the e-mail, which I suppose serves as verification that it is, in fact, me. You'd expect, at long last, that would be it, right?
      Wrong.
      Next is a final declaration that account cancellation is permanent and that, if I've changed my mind, I can simply close the page. So, with ever-waning hope, I click the familiar "Cancel account" button.
      I am then politely informed that my account has been queued for deletion and will be sorted within 48 hours.

      What takes so long about all that?! Dear God. It's as if they'd rather bore me to death than delete my account... not that that surprises me, since one of the many nicknames I've heard for the site is "Suicide Central."

    • Nice day

      10 years ago

      Jalnor

      I hope it's been epically sunny for all of you too... this weekend has been an absolute scorcher here.
      I spent the last couple of days mainly working on the garden, which... well, I have to admit, is pretty lame but has to be done. In fact, it was on the agenda for today as well.
      However... my good friend Helen texted me early this morning, asking if I wanted to go to the cinema after work. I'd neglected to mention I took today off as well... so, in my half-asleep state, over about an hour and 40 minutes (interspersed with falling asleep at least once), I composed a text back explaining that and suggesting we go for a pub crawl round a town half way between our two villages, so that neither of us had to drive.
      No response right away, my guess is that she fell asleep then too. Or her answer didn't arrive, which has happened.
      For those who don't know, Helen has been my best friend since high school... some nine years total now. We were in the Air Cadets together as well for several years and studied in the same class at college for a year too. In the last couple of years, work and the likes (what with her "weekend" having been one day during the week if she was lucky) we didn't get to see each other much. That's all changed since she got a new job, though. They treat her like shit and pay her less, but at least she generally gets 2 days off every week. Until she finds something better. My extended holiday time has helped too bigsmile.png
      For those of you who are predictably wondering whether we've ever been a couple or ever will be or what's wrong... no. We've never been more than friends. It's not that there's anything wrong... I like girls, she likes guys, we have a mutual attraction, but we're happy with our friendship the way it is.

      Anyway, I was in the middle of reading back through my old journals early this afternoon (can't for the life of me remember why) when she texted me again, asking if I was at home. She must have stopped out on the main road to do that and await my reply, because she pulled up outside the house just a minute after I answered.
      We ended up in a nearby recreation park with a big lake and such (and I wasn't allowed to drink in case the only way to park the car involved reversing, which she hates doing lol.png ) enjoying the sun and the view and the exceptionally warm mini-picnic we composed walking round the aisles of Tesco. My bottle of water was actually sitting at about the temperature I prefer to drink coffee lol.png We in Scotland are simply unused to that level of heat.
      I think we must have discussed just about everything that's gone on in our lives recently (and dug through some distant memories, we always enjoy reminiscing about years gone by) before we headed into the next town over for dinner in Pizza Hut (air conditioning and cold apple juice! Win!) before seeing Night At The Museum 2 in the cinema across the road. That film totally, totally rocks - just like Shura recently said elsewhere, I kept waiting for the Egyptian guy to say "Kree!"
      I think I might have overdone the sun a bit, several parts of me (nose, ears, forearms and back of the neck) are stinging a tiny bit and I'm now starting to see some definite red developing on my left arm. But the day has definitely been worth it.
      What have you all been up to in the fine weather?

    • Your thoughts...

      10 years ago

      Jalnor

      So, most of you will have some idea who the Tok'ra are (if not, you need to read my New Flight offshoot story, which I swear I will eventually finish) and most of you will have developed an opinion on the concept one way or the other...
      I think we all know my feelings on the subject, but I've started a thread to try and find out how everyone else feels. Being a group thread, not many individuals see it unless they browse the Stargate group, so I thought I'd mention it to you all here. How do you feel about Tok'ra blending?

      (I bet, if you were asked to guess who would create this thread, you'd have guessed me)
      I know there are a few others out there who have positive feelings for our dual-personality friends, but I also know there are a lot who don't.
      What I'd like to see is how the general spread of the feelings works out.
      In the poll, assume that in all but the emergency situation you have time to get to know the symbiote and decide if you like them first.

    • New Computer

      10 years ago

      Jalnor

      So... remember the new computer I said I was going to make not long ago?
      I finally finished it. It pwns.

      Generally, I've been Interneting on my laptop. I use that mostly on my bed because it's comfy... and I have the laptop sitting on a plastic tub filled with ice blocks to keep the frelling thing from being able to cook eggs.
      I also use this location to play on the '360 - the image below was taken from on top of the telly.
      Laptoparrangement.jpg

      But now that I've finished my super special awesome new system, I will (at least sometimes) be accessing the internet from the place I'm sitting right now. It looks a little bit like this:
      Farmarrangement.png
      That's the spare room that, long ago, was mine. The curtains were not mine, my Mum put those up. Also, the white cable running up the right-hand side of the image travels across the house and connects into the back of my '360 to make it Webable.

      So, my new system is up and running! It's not entirely as specified (it has an AMD Phenom X4 2.5GHz in it, for example) and doesn't have all the software running yet, but it's XP Pro X64 with 4GB RAM (and plans to add more when I can afford it)

      The white system under the desk is the old one, which I will very soon turn into a dedicated file server.

      I've been delaying on the final story post for the Space Station Variant of the Mafia game, but it will be up soon. In the meantime, we're deciding what to play next over in the group.

      So, who remembers how the Drunk Tank used to be? Like, there would be some topics posed and the RT staff would have a few beers and then comment on them? That was pretty great, wasn't it?
      Well, we here at the USSRvB didn't think it deserved to be entirely forgotten now that they do podcasts instead. To that end, we're doing our own version. Behold the Vodka Vat, where the USSRvB admins think up wacked-out answers to things on the news - things you may not even have heard.
      Just two days ago, we posted our second article, featuring a special guest in the form of Tiffari.
      On this Tuesday coming, we'll have even more current events and another special guest (a far more famous one!) and we'd like to invite you all to join in on the laughter by watching the group.

      The Vodka Vat regulars:
      Biolith - Hallucinating Commissar
      CaptZodiac - Hell's Ambassador
      f3licks
      firewolfnin - Not a man
