    • Your thoughts...

      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.

    • Introducing the Vodka Vat

      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
      iamcevrus2 - Miskatonic University Professor

    • Stun Setting for viruses

      10 years ago

      Jalnor

      This morning, I came into work to discover that the network server had crashed... I was so pleased... not. Reset it and logged it on again, to discover the exact same problem - specifically, the desktop was empty of icons and the taskbar wasn't running. Right-clicking did nothing. Ctrl-Alt-Delete worked fine, but my back door to the Run command (task manager > New Task) told me the C drive didn't exist...
      I facepalmed and went to log another brand new server problem (I've been having several issues a day and logging them to show the IT department just how much trouble their procrastination is causing) when I heard someone say the IT helpdesk phone line was engaged. It's always fairly busy, but it has a server that can handle a queue of 50. It was ENGAGED.

      Multiple machines in the office were affected and another one was going every couple of minutes - I even witnessed one go. It was only running the control panel, when suddenly that and all the icons and the taskbar vanished. For a split second, there was an Internet Explorer crash alert, then that disappeared too.
      Turns out, the suspected virus attack was all over the network in almost every building in the region. One of our facilities was completely in the dark because everything had been killed by this.

      One of the computers in here was actually able to get into its antivirus (as a result of being what its user describes as "steam powered") and discovered that the 8-bit software was unaffected. The updated antivirus data allowed him to find a trojan called qbotgvzdh. This gave us hope. By restarting the server in safe mode, I was able to find a 2-year-old copy of Spybot, which detected several DSO exploits and fixed them. I restarted and ran the antivirus scan (which magically came into existence when not in safe mode) and that found the trojan still present - so it was there, but I had been able to start normally? Hmm... well, the AV killed it anyway... seems Spybot functioned as a sort of stun setting smiley0.gif (Actually, fixing the DSO exploit probably denied the virus a means to affect the computer. Disabling without killing it. Hey, I zatted a virus! Woo! LOL)
      Now the server's back to displaying the Ancient Screensaver smiley0.gif

    • The paperless office

      10 years ago

      Jalnor

      Never heard of it? Click here.

      Now that we all know what it is... I'd like to know all your experiences and opinions on this subject - have you ever been involved in a system that tried to move towards paperless? How did it go?

      Personally, I have been pressing to have my office make a transition towards doing some things paperlessly instead of running a Trees' Morgue in the space behind my desk. This pressure is generally met with agreement and inaction. (Well, plus the occasional dinosaur that responds with disagreement and inverse action)
      I'd like to know what you all think about ways to make it work and how viable it is - if I can present a clear and concise document detailing all the factors and how it could work, I might be able to improve working operations, free up some space and, more importantly, save some trees and therefore money. And you'll have helped!

      This is based on an idea used in round 15 of the main thread, also by me. Set in the distant future aboard a space station, the majority of players are either station staff or travellers passing through the sector. Five of the players are part of an interstellar crime organisation that wants to take control of the station and the massive source of income it represents. While the station is cut off from the rest of the galaxy, they seize their chance. The station's Chief of Security will investigate suspected criminals, while the Chief Medical Officer will be standing by to save anyone mortally wounded by the criminals. Time is precious, so he will have to be nearby to help. Also aboard the station is an artificial life form - no-one knows it yet, though. If it is critically damaged, it will transfer its consciousness into an organic host and continually move from person to person.
